You referred to my post selectively. I said quote *or* address the person you’re talking to. You said “you” n the post of yours I quoted. Who is “you”? (Rhetorical question, the point is, make it clear to whom you’re talking or referring.

    If you don't know who the person is referring to, and haven't been interacting with the person in the thread, why would you assume it is addressed to you? Perhaps you might not know who it is addressed to, but having a fit because you think it must be about you is silly.

    Because it *seems* to be.

    It's not. It's often a reasonable conclusion.

    Don't blame others for your failure to be specific.

    I had my Moderna booster. (3rdshot). 9am. Went to sleep at 10pm with just the beginning of mild chills. Slept almost none that night! Other than to pee, did not get out of bed until 3pm. Didn’t eat at all. Forced myself to drink every now and then. Showered and went for a massage which helped tremendously! I felt close to normal at 5pm and was voraciously hungry. Was able to golf this morning (48 hours post injection) but was still very tired.

    Moderna is working on a combination corona booster/ seasonal flu shot that they hope to have out in the next six weeks. I think I would prefer two separate shots for now and see whats what next year.

    I assume that the booster has to be the same brand as the initial shot(s)? Any word on studying if you can mix them?

    I was told you can get a different brand but as of now that is not what they will be doing.

    We recently hit a milestone: 1 in 500 Americans have died from COVID.

    Earlier in this thread, I showed how 1 in 5 Americans has or had COVID if there are 66% more cases than reported, comprising people who were/are asymptomatic and never got tested. If that were true, that would mean an even 1% mortality rate.

    One thing to check is how many more Americans are dieing per month/year than in precious co-pandemic years. People die. If 1% of the population doesn't die every year than the average age will eventually start to exceed 100.
    So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

    This is where the covid deniers will cry that is a 99% survival rate so who cares.

    I saw a news segment showing many survivors whose lives were changed.

    One girl, age 13 I believe caught it. She was studying music and was thinking of a career in the orchestra. Now her lungs have been so ravaged she can't get the breath to play her instrument.

    I'm sure she will be very happy to know Covid isn't that serious since 99% of people survive. Yeah, right!
