Once they get this mRna stuff down it's fucking open season on shitty diseases.

Yeah, the massive boost in public funds for R&D the pandemic has brought on is just what the technology needs to push things forward a-pace. I'm not only looking forward to effective remedies, and possible reversals of chronic conditions and genetic defects, but also for humans to be able to photosynthesise while answering the phone with our prehensile tails.

We will have to all buy RVs and drive around all winter in the South so we can photosynthesize. Even in plants, the dark reactions do not work in the cold. Three hour window of sitting around drinking lattes in Florida, CA and Arizona all winter.

Just like our prehensile tails will not replace our limbs photosynthesis will enhance our nutrition - and certainly not replace pizza.

State now has 10% of population having been infected and mostly recovered. It will ever go over 15%.

This is rather typical of farming/red states. Finland, with more than twice the population has 860 dead, so only a fourth of the deaths, relative to population. Plus Finns are pretty obedient in these matters. Not libertarians. Only nationalists.

Nebraska was hit harder than Maine so far. Total cases/new cases/deaths: 52,677 +401 747
Daily cases have risen sharply in Maine, and mostly the UK variant is to blame, according to CDC. My vaccine couldn't come soon enough, then I'll still have to stay isolated for a few weeks, with resistance growing by the day, presumably. I better not get sick in the meantime. People around here are not good about recognizing the pandemic that is circulating in every locality in the state for what it is. Fairly hazardous to one's health. /run on sentence bonanza.

Nothing could replace pizza or ice cream. If we could photosynthesize, maybe the desert dwellers would be fatter than the cloudy forest dwellers.

In two weeks time the terraces and shops are opening! Normality will start to return. By summer we should be measure free.

Of course but even to make these utterings means people are being listened to.

It might also have something to do with the fact that the numbers are going in the right direction and a good chunk of people are being vaccinated. Have you been offered a jab yet?

Some numbers are going the right way (if you believe them) but the social pressure is massive. Any warm day the parks and beaches are full which leads to mad scenes of people sitting on the squares in front of the terraces which are closed enjoying picnics. You also can visit shops on appointment but you just cant come off the street.
The crazy Covid passport (another of Johnson's luney ideas) is not being considered here as is so prone to fraud. To produce one of passport level would be ridiculously expensive never-mind maintaining it. How long would it be valid for is one reason.
Here more is going towards instant testing when entering a big event.

I have not had a jab yet but have not been enquiring either. I dont go anywhere. My wife had the test done and was negative. If offered I will take it but I am not pushy about it.

Sleepy Joe has said we won't require COVID passports here, but New York is already implementing them. Another nail in New York's coffin.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

We are now hearing almost no complaints against Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Astra Zeneca some, and now J and J.

I think complaining about the vaccines is not allowed on social media or legacy media platforms.
