21 yo, I will bet my life it wasn't the jab. Someone has to be the one in a million, that dies for no apparent farking reason, at the ripe old age of 21.

Seems like an xkcd cartoon.

In the media release his parents seem to be heavily religious. I wouldn't be ruling out suicide as a possibility.

Lemme backtrack :P my condolences and my condolences and there is a chance it's related but the article sure isn't making a case for itself.

I heard from a friend who heard from a friend who read it on the back of a milk carton (2% if you need to know) that a baby died as soon as J&J's No Tears Baby Shampoo was applied to his head the first time.

(A piano from the upstairs neighbor fell through the ceiling and crushed him but cause-effect, man.  WAY too much to be a coincidence)

Also, man, the fark iOS editor is causing a lot of grammar errors today that either aren't showing up or I'm just not noticing until after I've submitted. Probably vaccine related.

It's not a one in a million chance. It's a much, much lower chance if you're not a woman 35-50. It's much, much higher if you are.

The denominator for thrombotic cranial clots is "women 35-50" not "everyone who has ever had the vaccine", given that's the core known at risk group. And that's more in the one-in-30,000 range.

Male, 21, days latter? It was nothing to do with the vaccine.

fark the Post and their fear mongering horseshiat, seriously.
 
2021-04-16 5:25:52 PM  
One of the idiots I used to work with says he wont take any of the vaccines because "A doctor took it and two weeks later he died." Well can't argue with that scientific reasoning there. Yet the idiot I worked with the only reason he was alive was modern medicine since he was the most unhealthy mofo here.

I'm already REALLY FARKING TIRED of the "OMG side effects!  Risk!" absurd noise about the vaccines, when the alternative is, you know, overflowing ICUs and death.

ESPECIALLY in cases when it's coming from the same asshole oppositional-defiant willfully ignorant plaguerats who farking refused to do farking any basic farking public health precautions, "protested" for "muh haircutz!", and flip their shiat over masks, etc.

2-5% risk of death from covid, "fark you! Freedumbss!" and media giving oxygen to plaguerats, deniers, and other farkwits.

Barely registering adverse events, historically, unbelievably high efficacy vaccines we should be *enormously* grateful to have at all:  "OMG VACCINES ARE DANGEROUS!" and media *wildly* misrepresenting relationships between vaccine status and injury.

Good times.  When we all have to deal with getting boosters every year (if we're *lucky* and it's not every six months... or not even possible), remember that none of this had to happen.

579,761 dead Americans SO FAR.

Thanks, MAGAts.  Thanks a farktonne.

Got a nip that vaccine hesitation causing crap in the bud!

We have a bunch of people here that aren't getting their appointments for any of the AstraZeneca vaccine that's sitting on the shelf waiting for hundreds of thousands of people to get it in their arms.

And reporting deaths due to a sudden huge unexplained surge of Pneumonia is inflating Covid numbers.

____________

They are really driving the "kill our readers and viewers" angle.  Faux News is running more anti-vax idiocy as well.

If someone falsely shouts "Fire" in a crowded area, we hold them responsible.  It's time to do the same to media outlets that cause direct harm as well.  Faux News and Spawn Hammyface can certainly serve as a precedent.

The least these scare mongering articles could do is stick to cases where there's at least some suggestion it could be related to the vaccine. They've not shown a blood clot issue here, though I still don't agree with holding up vaccines over that either*. As far as we know from published information about, it's about a one in a million chance.

Hell, one in a million people develop a prion disease each year, most of them with no known cause, and nearly all of them will die from it less than two years after diagnosis. But most of us don't freak the fark out about sporadic vCJD. By what is almost certainly random chance, the middle aged fathers of two people I went to high school with died of it. It's farking horrible. But it's very rare.

* I know, they're advising doctors on how to treat the clots, and there may be an argument for the pause that's based on trying to keep people from freaking out and refusing to get vaccinated, even though the experts know it's an extraordinarily rare side effect

Link is broken. Maybe enough people complained that headlines that misleading are damn near negligent homicide. Though more likely is someone hot the wrong button, this is the post afterall.

I took my chances. I ended up with J&J by chance, it was the first, nearest appointment.
And, after everything, I'd make the same choice tomorrow.
Covid is much more dangerous.
it's almost "Cake or death?"

You wouldn't believe some of the shiat you've got to deal with when writing SAE narratives.

My personal favorite is the guy who spent a night in the hospital when the city bus he was riding in was broadsided by a drunk driver.
