Oh vaccinations, I thought you said vacations.   Sorry.

Don't worry. Biden is President now.  We are going to start to get bombarded with "Everything is ok now" stories

The antibody epitopes are drifting, dumbasses.  They're drifting because those people still harbor pockets of active virus.  Its almost as if science popularizers have amnesia when it comes to HIV, AIDS, Hep C, Herpes Simplex, et al.

If you are persistently infected you are still sick, not immune.

Take precautions if you are in the high risk category, but get on with your life.
This isn't "World War Z" where everyone turns into a bunch of flipping zombies.
The zombies, are the "you aren't wearing a mask" Karen's.


This disease lingers after seroconversion.  It will cause cancers and immune dysfunction ending in reactivation and death in much of the affected population without intervention.  It is quite possibly the biggest pathogenic threat faced by a hominid species since the neanderthal went extinct.  You are either acting in bad faith, or an utter imbecile.

Nice speculation you got going there.

I'm guessing it's based on all the studies showing long tern/permanent organ damage. But I'm sure YOU know better than teams of scientists and doctors. What references do you have showing that people are recovering completely?

I'm confident that bit about cancer  and immune dysfunction is speculation. Long term cardio vascular and pulmonary issues have been documented.

Once you remove some of the more inconsequential sentences, the article is quite clear. There's a 30 second stretch that is guaranteed to stop back pain and if you love slot machines, Covid has an app for you. Really couldn't have been more clear.

Thank you. God's work, you're doing there. Not literally. What God has to do with a giant chicken is anybody's guess, and that's the point. Especially when the giant chicken is hungry. I'm hungry right now and I'd eat that giant chicken if it didn't eat me first, with plenty left over, but that's not how it goes.

Is Gary Larson a relative of yours?
