I'm guessing 25% to 35% of Americans will refuse to get a vaccine, period!


I'm just lazy. Vaccines are someone else's job and I don't need one. My friend slept 16 hours after second shot. Nope. If you're old, you're first in line no matter what tp die.

You also have a chance of spreading the infection to anyone who comes in contact with you.



Well, yes, but if you put some numbers on it it would be a more honest and useful statement.

Covid-19 is generally not transmissible for about 4 to 5 days after infection because it takes time for the virus to multiply and build up with the body. The rule of thumb health workers use is that a fever is a sign that you are contagious, and before a fever occurs you are much less infectious. In fact, current covid tests usually do not detect the virus in a person until >5 days after infection.

So now apply that information to a vaccinated person in which the virus usually does not build up to high levels in the body. It makes scientific sense that a vaccinated person who has been infected with the virus will have a lower chance of transmitting it to other people than a non-vaccinated person. The chance of re-transmission is not "zero" therefore it is technically correct to say that vaccinated people can retransmit the disease - but the transmission efficiency and risk to others is almost certainly much lower.

If we define zero risk as the only level we will tolerate, we are hopelessly lost.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Thanks. I was aware that there’s been cases, wasn’t aware of any severe cases. From a risk/safety benefit standpoint, if they’re required after mid summer I’d still compare it to if you’d not allow people to operate motorcycles or bicycles on a road, or not allowing people to have their pets in any public area because it could theoretically bite someone.

Lock it down, open it up, wear masks, don't wear masks, get vaccinated, don't get vaccinated, I dont really care. But comparing it to things that have many benefits just doesn't make any sense to me.

Here are the rules for reopening Las Vegas buffets starting May 1st, as published by Clark County:

"Buffets may open if: 1) each station is supervised by an employee; 2) hand sanitizer is offered to the patrons prior to obtaining tableware; 3) service utensils are changed out every hour."

Those are the rules and here are my thoughts:

1. I don't want serving utensils. I want the buffet to have prepared plates for me to pick up or I want a server at each food station.

2. Changing serving utensils once an hour is the most ridiculous rule I could imagine.

3. We dont need a supervisor at every food station, what we need is a server.

4. Self service should be limited to each patron going to each food station and picking up a prepared plate.

5. Many casinos already have prepared plates served by a staff member. It's not difficult to make that a universal process. It's already done with some salads and desserts and things like omelets and wonton soup and seafood and specialty dishes. What's the problem doing it for Orange Chicken and Shrimp Scampi?

I got a Baconator last night and a painful pimple in my arm pit area popped a few hours later and I'm ruining a second shirt right now with pus & blood discharge.
