Half vaxxed with Pfizer

Looking at his picture, Im not surprised.

Caught it right between jab #1 and jab #2, talk about shiat luck.

He's from LA. He probably waddled past free vaccination sites for months. "Bad luck" had nothing to do with it.

Obesity is a hell of a thing.

I didn't know it could cause paralysis. My wife's cousin got it and it cause a stroke that killed him. Also in Florida. The doctors and pulmonologists drove the point home that Covid killed him. The family refused to acknowledge it and his obituary and funeral pamphlet said he died from a stroke. It was then that I realized where the dissonance comes from.

He was between sticks for the Pzifer vaccine and doing fine in CA.  Things fell apart when he went to visit the parent's in Florida.  It appears he got it from mom and dad but due to his other health issues, he's lucky to survive.

I've seen old old people that smoked for years or drank whiskey like it was water. I've never seen an old old fat person though.

IRestoreFurniture: Was he vaccinated?


Yes he was, the first dose of Pfizer.

From the CDC website: (https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/​wr​/mm7020e2.htm) May 21, 2021

"The first U.S. multisite test-negative design vaccine effectiveness study among HCP found a single dose of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to be 82% effective against symptomatic COVID-19"

It's almost as if his morbid obesity was a huge cause for his issues...

Getting real old tends to cause one to lose weight.  IE, maybe some old old people were former fatties?

It's amazing that he didn't try. His morbid obesity puts him squarely in "high-risk".

Confirmation bias. Most of the morbidly obese died before getting really old, so you're left with mostly those that weren't so overweight living longer.

Now that said apparently my MIL was over 200# at her heaviest and now weighs all of 105, but her weight loss was gradual and over many, many years, long before she was really, REALLY old.

Why shame someone who finally got (partially) vaxxed? Don't we WANT people to change their minds and get vaccinated? Or are we at the 60% rate and decide, ah that's good enough?

A) Old people tend to shrink a lot, both vertically and horizontally. It's hard to keep up that kind of weight when your knees are buckling under your own weight.

B) "Yeehaw! Fark the consequences!" attitudes tend to die younger.

My dad was slim until his 50s, then he got fat. Maybe on the edge of obesity. Then when he got in his late 70s or early '90s became skinny. So yeah, I think there are people like that.

Really? COVID turned the "I work in I.T." crowd from laughing at the proles working with thier hands like peasants for the last 15 years, to laughing at the proles working in person like peasants and being around the MAGATs. Why would you think the smug would go away? They were always the smart ones in their own screenplays they wrote themselves.

Option A: You walk into a room, and pick a marble from a bowl. There's 100. 50 of them are green. If you get a green, you get punched in the stomach and go on your way. You'll get over it. 40 of them are blue. If you pick a blue, Muhammad Ali breaks your jaw and most of your teeth in the process. Enjoy being broken for a month, and probably never quite recovering. 8 of them are red. If you pick a red, a gangbanger with an aluminum bat will beat you to within an inch of your life. You go out on a stretcher with damage to numerous organs and you're almost certainly never going to fully recover. 2 of them are white. Pick a white one and you die a horrible, agonizing, drawn out death... after getting the aluminum bat treatment.

Option B: Roll a die. If it comes up other than 1, walk away. If it comes up 1, you have to go into the room. But for you, 90 of the marbles are green, 9 are blue and 1 is white.

Oh yeah, if you choose A, you probably push at least 3-4 other people into the room against their will.

One more thing, if too many people go into the room, 2-3 of the red marbles get replaced with white instead.

Who in the *fark* would willingly choose option A?
