DaemonFCI scheduled a pneumonia vaccine for Saturday.Jan 04 00:11
DaemonFCI'm not sure what that was that hit me last month but it went on almost all month and through two rounds of antibiotics.Jan 04 00:11
DaemonFCschestowitz, Mom _still_ has it.Jan 04 00:12

schestowitz-TRpneumocronJan 04 00:14
DaemonFCThe Amoxicillin got me on my feet again and I felt okay for 2 days after it ran out, but then I started coughing up green shit that tasted really bad.Jan 04 00:14
DaemonFCSo I went to the walk-in clinic and they put me on a Z-Pak. It started lifting up again, and it took about 12 more days before it was over.Jan 04 00:15
DaemonFCIt went on for about 27 days in total.Jan 04 00:15

DaemonFCI told her, "Well, it's well known the Shingles one can get rough.".Jan 04 00:16
schestowitz-TRewwwJan 04 00:17
DaemonFCIn the past 5 years I've been vaccinated against flu every year, COVID (3 doses, Pfizer), Meningitis A,C,W,Y, Meningitis B, and Hepatitis A.Jan 04 00:18
DaemonFCThe only one that had any side effects was for COVID.Jan 04 00:18
DaemonFCI don't normally side effect reactions to vaccines.Jan 04 00:18
DaemonFCOh yeah, and I had a Tdap.Jan 04 00:18
DaemonFCTetanus is a really nasty thing. There's only been like one case in the US in the last 10 years that I can recall.Jan 04 00:19
DaemonFCA child got it because his parents were anti-vaxxers and he went to the hospital for a month, suffered horribly, and by the time the doctors got it under control, it had cost the state a million dollars in care for the child.Jan 04 00:19
DaemonFCPeople like that need to lose their children to the state.Jan 04 00:20

MinceRi wouldn't trust the state with thoseJan 04 00:21
DaemonFCSometimes the parents are even worse.Jan 04 00:21
MinceRthe state is a gigantic ongoing fuckupJan 04 00:21
DaemonFCWell, the theory of democracy is we have representatives to have arguments for us about how things should work.Jan 04 00:21
schestowitz-TRI still remember the Tetanus...Jan 04 00:21
schestowitz-TRas a kid I accidentally say on a small nail on a wood plankJan 04 00:22
schestowitz-TRand it was a bit rustyJan 04 00:22
DaemonFCHowever, under the new Democrat maps, 97% of people in Illinois won't have any choice at all about who their representative is.Jan 04 00:22
schestowitz-TRso they gave me another Tetanus shotJan 04 00:22
schestowitz-TRthat was painful, but no side effects that I can rememberJan 04 00:22
schestowitz-TR*sat onJan 04 00:22
DaemonFCYeah, I hit my head on a forklift and cut myself.Jan 04 00:23
DaemonFCThey took me to the hospital and gave me a tetanus shot.Jan 04 00:23
schestowitz-TRmaybe a common precautionJan 04 00:23
schestowitz-TResp. with rustJan 04 00:23
DaemonFCThen they wrote me up for having an accident and then they told me to go back to work with dried blood all over my face and a concussion.Jan 04 00:23
DaemonFC:)Jan 04 00:23
schestowitz-TRmaybe the shot hurt a lot because of my ageJan 04 00:23
schestowitz-TRI was under 10, afraid of needlesJan 04 00:24
DaemonFCLike, gee, I was really trying to bash my own face in against a metal roll cage you know.Jan 04 00:24
DaemonFCWrite me up, fucker.Jan 04 00:24
DaemonFCThey forced you to work fast if you wanted to keep your job or earn any money that week.Jan 04 00:25
DaemonFCThen when you have an accident....your fault.Jan 04 00:25
DaemonFCThe base pay at Stride Rite was $8 an hour, but you could earn about $20 if you maxed out the "performance incentive bonus".Jan 04 00:25
DaemonFCSo I worked out a way where I could max it out doing any job in the building every hour of every week.Jan 04 00:26
DaemonFCThen they got suspicious and started following me around because the managers didn't know how I was doing it.Jan 04 00:26
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, I kept track of my "PIE" score and if I went over 150% (where the bonus ended), I'd do things to bring it back down at the end of the week.Jan 04 00:27
MinceRProto-Indo-European?Jan 04 00:27
DaemonFCLike, if they ran out of work and told me to sweep the floors, I would spend 20 more minutes under the "order pulling" job code.Jan 04 00:27

DaemonFCIt would pull down my rate for the week and get it closer to 150% while I was sweeping the floor for $20 an hour.Jan 04 00:28
DaemonFCOr taking a dump. That was fun too.Jan 04 00:28

DaemonFC<MinceR> "Boss makes a dollar, I make a dime. That's why I poop on company time"Jan 04 00:29
DaemonFCWell, if you make the same amount per hour under a job code at 180% or 150%, you should stay under the old job code for as long as possible to bring it back down towards 150%.Jan 04 00:29
DaemonFCThen you get the full possible hourly pay for taking a shit or sweeping the floor.Jan 04 00:30

DaemonFCIf Biden was smarter, he'd split this "BBB" bill into sections and have Chuck and Nancy start forcing up or down votes on all of it starting with the ones where most of them will be punished in the next election somehow if they vote against it.Jan 04 01:12
DaemonFCExpanding Medicare is pretty popular in every state and it would provide them with attack ads against every Republican that voted no.Jan 04 01:12
DaemonFCI'd start with that. Lower the Medicare age to 55, and add benefits.Jan 04 01:13
DaemonFCPolitics is often piecemeal. Stallman doesn't seem to get it.Jan 04 01:13
DaemonFCThe Republicans are a brick wall of "no" and the Democrats are functioning as several different parties calling themselves the same thing.Jan 04 01:14
DaemonFCJamming everything into one bill just doesn't work when one Senator that objects to any part of it can kill the entire thing.Jan 04 01:14
DaemonFCBy expanding Medicare, we move the conversation in the other direction from where Reagan pushed it in the 1980s.Jan 04 01:15
DaemonFC"The billionaires are living longer, so the janitor has to wait longer to claim Social Security."Jan 04 01:16
DaemonFCThe problem is also going on throughout Europe.Jan 04 01:16
DaemonFCIt just keeps going up. They want you to die with nothing after paying payroll taxes forever.Jan 04 01:16
DaemonFCThey can turn it into a perversion of itself. Poor people pay, the middle class lives into their 90s.Jan 04 01:17
DaemonFCIt already happened to my aunt.Jan 04 01:17
DaemonFCShe died at 56 in a car accident. She paid millions to Social Security.Jan 04 01:17
DaemonFCShe didn't get anything. Nobody that was related to her inherited it.Jan 04 01:18
DaemonFCSome people can afford to retire before they claim Social Security, or cut their work hours and go into partial retirement, but have to keep full time or they lose their health insurance.Jan 04 01:18
DaemonFCHealth insurance has become a carrot on a string in front of the plow horse.Jan 04 01:19
DaemonFCTech companies now exist with apps on phones to spy on people with crappy prescription drug insurance, or none at all.Jan 04 01:20
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, Did I mention having to use one for Mandy a few times.Jan 04 01:20
DaemonFCGoodRX is SO STUPID. It charges the pharmacy to run some numbers, like $3 each time they do it, then it gives them a price and that's what they have to charge you.Jan 04 01:20
DaemonFCI talked to a pharmacist who says he runs an independent pharmacy (rare these days) and he just matches the price on the screen if that's what it says when he looks it up on his computer, and he does not contact GoodRX.Jan 04 01:21
DaemonFCBecause GoodRX routes it through a PBM and they are the ones who have contracts with the pharmacy. The pharmacy goes along with it because no contract with PBMs means you can't accept any insurance plan that uses that PBM to negotiate their prices.Jan 04 01:22
schestowitz-TRDaemonFC: back on topicJan 04 01:22
schestowitz-TRI have a questionJan 04 01:22
DaemonFCThen at the end of the month, the PBM sends their bill to the pharmacy.Jan 04 01:22

DaemonFCGoodRX gets information about every patient who uses their app.Jan 04 01:23
DaemonFCEven though they're a middleman.Jan 04 01:23
DaemonFCThen they sell it to the drug companies, in addition to their kickbacks from the PBMs.Jan 04 01:23
DaemonFC<schestowitz-TR> do you have much experience with "smart" things?Jan 04 01:23
DaemonFCI have a smart meter.Jan 04 01:23
DaemonFCNo choice.Jan 04 01:23
DaemonFCIt's the law.Jan 04 01:23
schestowitz-TRreally?Jan 04 01:24
DaemonFCAnd I have a smart toothbrush, but I don't ever use it with an app.Jan 04 01:24

DaemonFCThe company comes out and replaces the meter.Jan 04 01:24

schestowitz-TRI want to write articles on these thingsJan 04 01:26
schestowitz-TRbut I never put a pair of hands on themJan 04 01:26
DaemonFCThere's only one electric company in Illinois, and it's called Commonwealth Edision, but it's a subsidiary of Exelon. They also run most of the generating capacity in the state. You can sign up for another provider, but most of them just bill you for electricity and then sell carbon credits or some bullshit. Some run solar or wind and bill ComEd to put it in their system. You still get a bill from ComEd, but it says who your supplier is, and Jan 04 01:26
DaemonFCComEd doesn't care.Jan 04 01:26
schestowitz-TRand don't have all the gadgets they come with regardlessJan 04 01:26
DaemonFCThe real money is in the delivery, which is always going to ComEd.Jan 04 01:26

DaemonFCThey've gotten over $1.3 BILLION in bailouts over the nuclear threat in the past 6 years.Jan 04 01:28
schestowitz-TRafaikJan 04 01:28
DaemonFCThey did it twice to make each one look like a lower figure and then threatened to shut down different plants the second time.Jan 04 01:28

schestowitz-TRI'm not hypocritical enough to adopt one just to study itJan 04 01:31
DaemonFCThere's a lot of politics involved in monetary policy. Presidents generally want easy money, and the banks don't care either.Jan 04 01:32

DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, I worked out our marginal tax rate for this year. Technically we'll be in a 10% bracket, but our marginal federal income tax rate should only be about 3 or 4%.Jan 04 01:40
DaemonFCI told Mandy to slow it down last year. We went on vacation and instead of using his personal time, he just took days off with no pay.Jan 04 01:40
DaemonFCThen he didn't use PTO for Thanksgiving or Christmas.Jan 04 01:40
DaemonFCI know the tax code.Jan 04 01:41
DaemonFCI always aim to minimize.Jan 04 01:41
DaemonFCFor 2020, our marginal tax rate was negative 0.78%.Jan 04 01:41
schestowitz-TRI've just taken a calculatorJan 04 01:42

DaemonFCStavins is the co-author of a recent paper from the Boston Fed that looked at who winds up paying for credit card reward purchases. They found that in the US, high-income consumers pay an average of $13 less per month through retail prices, and low-income people pay 60 cents more, because of swipe fees on merchants. Rich consumers spend more overall on fees, but it’s because they spend more in general. When it comes to a percentage oJan 04 02:45

I may spend more in terms of all the different fees and surcharges and cost of credit card transactions that merchants will transfer to higher retail prices. But in terms of the percentage, I’ll pay a lot smaller fraction than you are,” Stavins said.Jan 04 02:45

DaemonFCTalking about how they bring the discrimination down on themselves by doing things like naming their children "whatever the fuck we want".Jan 04 04:09
DaemonFCBut the truth is if they were naming their kids Mike or Tom or Bob or Susan, they'd be getting more calls for a job interview and less crap if they applied for public assistance.Jan 04 04:10

schestowitz-TRshe does not own a homeJan 04 04:20
DaemonFCThey're tied down to a house where the property taxes have more than tripled in the last twenty years.Jan 04 04:20
schestowitz-TRthe bank owns itJan 04 04:20
DaemonFCThey probably didn't plan on their mortgage going up that much because the bank has to cut the county a check for the taxes! :)Jan 04 04:20
schestowitz-TRbblJan 04 04:21
DaemonFCThey're paying for the out of control government more than we are because they stupidly bought a single family dwelling on some land that people can trip on and sue them.Jan 04 04:21
DaemonFCUnlike me, they're not judgment proof.Jan 04 04:22
DaemonFCJudgment proof isn't a legal term, it's just a term of fact. When someone is so poor that you could sue them but you'd never get a dime if you did.Jan 04 04:22
DaemonFCThe government had laws in place to make sure that people who lose a lawsuit have enough money to live and put some savings away.Jan 04 04:23
DaemonFCSo quite a lot of the population isn't worth suing because they make less than $22.50 an hour and they have less than $4,500 in a bank account.Jan 04 04:23
DaemonFCAnd if you take them to a debtor's exam too many times, you could find yourself in contempt of court, for a lawsuit that you won.Jan 04 04:24
DaemonFCHow's them apples? :)Jan 04 04:24
DaemonFCAnd the funny part is, in a debtor's exam, you can ask them if they have money somewhere else, but they can also lie to you.Jan 04 04:25
DaemonFCNobody and nothing gives you the right to invade and search.Jan 04 04:25
DaemonFCSo as long as they feel comfortable committing perjury (many people do), then you'll still never get anything.Jan 04 04:26
DaemonFCLandlords even get frustrated suing former tenants and quit trying to attach to anything.Jan 04 04:27
DaemonFCThey don't like to admit how often that happens, but often they can win whatever lawsuit they want to file and still get nothing.Jan 04 04:27
DaemonFCAn ex of mine has owed a former landlord $4,652, since 2011.Jan 04 04:28
DaemonFCHasn't paid a cent.Jan 04 04:28
DaemonFCPretty much the threat of not paying your rent, if you're poor, is that you get evicted (eventually) and blackballed (eviction on credit report and court filings).Jan 04 04:29
DaemonFCNot that you'll get sued and the landlord collects.Jan 04 04:29

DaemonFCI have damned good insurance that covers all vaccines with a very small co-pay.Jan 04 04:59

leahschestowitz-TR: btw, something which raises my eyebrowsJan 04 05:21
leah 04 05:21
leah"GNU Libreboot"Jan 04 05:21
-TechrightsBot-tr/ | GNU Libreboot and GNU Translations (Especially Chinese) | Tux MachinesJan 04 05:21
leahlibreboot left the GNU project on September 15th, 2016. the reasons it did so were very bad, and i regret my actions back then but...Jan 04 05:21
leahcalling it "GNU Libreboot" in 2022 is factually incorrectJan 04 05:21
leahlibreboot is not currently a part of gnuJan 04 05:21
leahalthough, libreboot complies with GNU policy and it is GNU in spiritJan 04 05:22
leahi actually asked rms several times, and gnueval, but never got a response, when re-applying for membership, so i gave up. the last attempt i made was during 2021Jan 04 05:23
leahrms himself even said so in january 2017, that libreboot is officially non-GNUJan 04 05:25
DaemonFCMany projects have left GNU, threatened to, or only stayed because they were given special permissions that don't normally apply.Jan 04 05:27
DaemonFCI was watching Star Trek: Discovery recently, boredom, and Vulcan (Ni'Var) wanted back into the federation on the condition that it could leave whenever it wanted to.Jan 04 05:28
DaemonFCThen the federation wouldn't allow it because "Then everyone would demand the same thing. We're not some organization you can benefit from whenever you feel like it and then leave on a whim!".Jan 04 05:28
DaemonFCAnd the FSF, by granting this sort of thing so many times, they've made their foundation useless.Jan 04 05:29
DaemonFCThey've invited in toxic people who do not share their goals and objectives, who threaten them over things like the copyright assignment provision.Jan 04 05:29
DaemonFCAnd now nobody will have to do it, and the best that we can hope for is that the US court system rules that the GPL is a contract with the end user and that by failing to perform, you are in breach of contract.Jan 04 05:30
DaemonFCIt's clumsy. It shouldn't be necessary, but here we are.Jan 04 05:30
DaemonFCAnd as far back as 2009, *I* was arguing that the SFLC should "go there" because Samsung had been using Busybox in Blu Ray players and later switched to Toybox to avoid GPL lawsuits from them.Jan 04 05:31
DaemonFCI was arguing that the GPL was like a contract between distributor and user back then because I knew that simply viewing it as a "license" would allow people to sabotage it by replacing only the bits that they knew would be litigated over, and using things like Linux, which has never been litigated over in many cases the GPL was designed to be used for (even the GPLv2!).Jan 04 05:33
DaemonFCIf it's a license, you need a copyright holder to get involved.Jan 04 05:34
DaemonFCIf it's like a contract, you only need someone who has received a copy of the software to get involved.Jan 04 05:34
DaemonFCIt's amazing that with thousands of contributors to Linux, none of them are interested in GPL compliance.Jan 04 05:35
DaemonFCSo arguing it under contract law can bring about a decision that puts these companies who want to do whatever the hell they want under notice.Jan 04 05:35
DaemonFCWhat's going on in consumer hardware is a classic case of divide and conquer.Jan 04 05:36
DaemonFCAnd that's what's going on at the FSF as well. You have all of these Cancel Stallman trolls because they figured it would be easier to push over with him gone.Jan 04 05:37
DaemonFCAnd it's the same people who want Toybox so they can violate the GPL someplace else.Jan 04 05:37

DaemonFCWhich is worse than Measles was before there was a Measles vaccine.Jan 04 12:02

DaemonFCMost people didn't even get a Chickenpox vaccine when I was a child.Jan 04 12:03
DaemonFCIt was expected you'd get Chickenpox and it would be better to have it as a child, because it was worse as an adult, and people would deliberately try to infect their kids with it at a young age because of that.Jan 04 12:04
DaemonFCThen they'd show up with it at school, and that's how I got it.Jan 04 12:04

DaemonFCA lot of the reason we have a need for Shingles Vaccine today is because kids get the Chickenpox vaccine now.Jan 04 12:06
DaemonFCSo you aren't constantly being exposed to it anymore.Jan 04 12:06
DaemonFCBeing around people who had the Chickenpox every so often led to reduced rates of adult Shingles, even without a Shingles vaccine.Jan 04 12:07
DaemonFCBecause being exposed to the Chickenpox once in a while had a protective effect.Jan 04 12:07
DaemonFCIt caused a level of herd immunity to Shingles that doesn't exist anymore.Jan 04 12:07

DaemonFCBut I think it was deliberate.Jan 04 12:20
DaemonFCSomeone smart enough to create a cipher like that certainly was no fool.Jan 04 12:20

MinceRwhat if your rear view mirror is mounted on the windshield?Jan 04 12:40
MinceRsome car manufacturers like to just glue it thereJan 04 12:40

DaemonFCIn Illinois, you don't need to have your vehicle registration.Jan 04 12:41
DaemonFCIn Indiana, it's a citation with a fine.Jan 04 12:41
DaemonFCIn Indiana you can get a ticket for going too fast and too slow, at the same time.Jan 04 12:41
MinceRlolJan 04 12:42
MinceRyour speed should be a complex number, i guessJan 04 12:42
DaemonFCYou were speeding, but other cars want to overtake you and can't because you're speeding in the left lane at a slower pace than they want to go.Jan 04 12:42
DaemonFCSo you get a speeding ticket and a left-lane hog ticket.Jan 04 12:42
DaemonFCIllinois recently passed this too.Jan 04 12:42
DaemonFCIn Indiana, not moving over for a fire truck, cop, or ambulance with lights and siren on is a big fine. In Illinois, it's a criminal offense and you can go to jail.Jan 04 12:43
DaemonFCIndiana has points for every citation offense, in Illinois they just consider every such offense to be the same and you lose your license if you get 3 in a rolling 12 month period (2 if you're under 21).Jan 04 12:44
DaemonFCSo in Illinois, speeding 14 mph or less and a conviction is the same thing as running a red light, but in Indiana the first one is 4 points while the red light is 2 points.Jan 04 12:45
DaemonFCIndiana has laws about sharing the road with people on a horse and buggy, because of the Amish.Jan 04 12:46
DaemonFCIn Illinois, it's illegal to be on the road in a horse and buggy.Jan 04 12:46
DaemonFCIndiana drivers licenses expire every 7 years if you're under 70.Jan 04 12:47
DaemonFCIn Illinois they expire every 4 years.Jan 04 12:47
DaemonFCIn Illinois, you can get a medical marijuana card, but it shows up in the police computer if you get pulled over so they know to harass you.Jan 04 12:48
DaemonFCIf you pay taxes on the marijuana the police don't know you've ever bought any.Jan 04 12:48
DaemonFCIt's not hard to get a medical card.Jan 04 12:48
DaemonFCIf you have a household member who doesn't drive anyway, you could get them to get a medical card and buy your weed for you so there's no taxes and you're not in the computer. It's illegal, but as long as nobody runs their mouth, it's also impossible to prove.Jan 04 12:49

DaemonFCMARISOL was asking my opinion of medical marijuana.Jan 04 12:52
DaemonFCShe said "I have patients who use it. What's your opinion of that?".Jan 04 12:52
DaemonFCSo I said, "Well, I don't use it, but if they have a medical need for it, like they're in pain and dying or something, I think it would be cruel and unethical not to give them some if that's what helps them. Besides, it's their right to do that in this state at that point anyway, so my opinion doesn't really matter."Jan 04 12:53
DaemonFCI think she was trying to bait me into saying something.Jan 04 12:54
DaemonFCI didn't mention the part where I voted to decriminalize it in Chicago.Jan 04 12:55
DaemonFCThe police were whining that they would lose a "valuable tool" to obtain search warrants where they would uncover other crimes.Jan 04 12:56
DaemonFCIn otherwords "We're too lazy and stupid to do actual police work. If we lose the 'I smell pot.' line, we're fucked!".Jan 04 12:56
DaemonFCBut even as a legal substance, they manage to arrest and kill black people for having it.Jan 04 12:57

DaemonFCschestowitz, I was talking to dad, on Facebook.Jan 04 15:16
DaemonFC"There's very little inflation. Most of the CEOs admit that they raise prices because they can get away with it and they can blame Biden for it. Kroger bragged that you have to buy groceries somewhere so they can do whatever they want to you.Jan 04 15:16
DaemonFCMandy and I are going to the Golden Corral a lot because it's $10.50 per person and you can eat all you want to, so I pick him up at work, we make a mid day meal out of it, and I do very little shopping. You know what $20 gets you in the meat department at Walmart these days? Maybe one steak. But two people can go to an all you can eat buffet, which has over 150 things, including steak, for a little over $20. How does that work?Jan 04 15:16
DaemonFCGolden Corral even has a loyalty program and I have 4-5% back on restaurants depending on the card and the time of year, so in fact we only pay 85 cents on the dollar to eat at the buffet."Jan 04 15:16
DaemonFCIt's incredibly cheap. I can't cook it myself that cheap!Jan 04 15:17
DaemonFCThere at the restaurant, they already cooked it, and so I don't even have to work to cook it, or pay for the energy to cook it.Jan 04 15:18
DaemonFCSo even right there, aside from the grocery bill being higher to start out with, I have to spend hours in the kitchen and pay ComEd to cook the food.Jan 04 15:18

DaemonFCschestowitz, Even with cooking, my electric bills only came out to $33-39 a month, but I think I can get them in the $20s by just "outsourcing" this problem to the restaurant.Jan 04 15:20

DaemonFCI don't think that Libertarianism is a natural fit for the Republican Party. We actually criticize the Republican Party far more, I think, than the Democratic one. At least the Democrats are open about what they'll do. Dump more money into social rot.Jan 04 17:59
DaemonFCThe Republicans say they'll cut the government down to size, and then they get in there, and spend 8 years, and it's running bigger deficits than ever so billionaires don't pay any taxes, and then they spend spend spend on military pork and saber rattling and impotent and imbecilic bluster with money they borrowed from the country they say is now threatening us, at ruinous interest rates, which that country buys our country with. And somehow Jan 04 17:59
DaemonFCthere's 47% more government after W left than before. Amazing how the Republicans manage to be even worse than the Democrats.Jan 04 17:59
DaemonFCThen the Republicans go further and want to regulate personal behavior that's really none of their business. So, the Republicans are even more of a natural enemy to Libertarians than Democrats. And it was in that sense that I voted Trump out.Jan 04 17:59

schestowitz-TRif people reject all vaccines because of Mandate Joe, then maybe they were antivax all alongJan 04 23:07
DaemonFCYes, I went ahead with the Pneumonia one because I had a talk with the doctor and she said it was possible that what I had last month was Pneumonia and that as you age, you are likely to suffer it worse.Jan 04 23:07
DaemonFCAnd that the vaccines substantially reduce the threat.Jan 04 23:07
DaemonFCSo now that I'm sure what I had last month is gone, I want to make sure I get the vaccines now, before anything can happen to my health insurance.Jan 04 23:09

DaemonFCHerd Immunity is sort of a firewall. If you get 80-90% of the people vaccinated and it's a very effective vaccine, there's hardly any way the disease could become widespread again.Jan 04 23:13
DaemonFCViruses that mutate into a hundred more things every year, you can't really control or contain them.Jan 04 23:13
DaemonFCBut the vaccine they started giving in the 70s for Hepatitis B still protects people all these years later.Jan 04 23:14
DaemonFCSo COVID is perhaps not a great target for a vaccine, but plenty of things are.Jan 04 23:14
tech_exorcisthaven't been reading the channel, but does Hepatitis B mutate as much as COVID does?Jan 04 23:14
DaemonFCNo, it doesn't.Jan 04 23:14
DaemonFCIn fact, one of the things doctors do as part of HIV case management for people who have that is....Jan 04 23:15
DaemonFCBring them up to date with their vaccines.Jan 04 23:15
tech_exorcistI seeJan 04 23:15
DaemonFCYou don't want them to get something else and have to try to treat that too.Jan 04 23:15
tech_exorcistmakes senseJan 04 23:15
DaemonFCAnd people should quit being so selfish and ignorant, because that's what anti-vax is.Jan 04 23:16
DaemonFCIt's ignorance of the facts, and selfishness based on that ignorance.Jan 04 23:16
DaemonFCYou can most likely tolerate every adult vaccine out there.Jan 04 23:16
DaemonFCThey do work.Jan 04 23:16
DaemonFCIf you get them, it can save the lives of others, because the disease won't vector through you.Jan 04 23:17
DaemonFCI had hoped that COVID wouldn't mutate quickly and that the vaccine would stop me from getting it and thereby transmitting it.Jan 04 23:18
DaemonFCBut it can still happen because it did mutate quickly.Jan 04 23:18
DaemonFCThis is going to turn into another flu shot.Jan 04 23:19
DaemonFCThe flu shots aren't very effective and they wear off after about 6 months.Jan 04 23:19
DaemonFCSo you have to time them to kick in right before flu season, and even then you're looking at an average efficacy of about 50%.Jan 04 23:19
tech_exorcistI seeJan 04 23:20
DaemonFCThis year, they say 99% of flu circulating in the US is H3N2, but it's not a good match for the H3N2 in the vaccine.Jan 04 23:21
DaemonFCThere are subtypes, and it's a different subtype going around than what they planned for.Jan 04 23:21
DaemonFCAn imperfect match can still reduce the symptoms, but it won't stop you from getting the flu.Jan 04 23:22
DaemonFCThey've been looking for a "universal flu shot" forever that won't need to change every year.Jan 04 23:22
DaemonFCNow they're talking about an mRNA-based flu shot.Jan 04 23:22
DaemonFCThe ones we use now are basically not much different than the method the US military developed in the 1940s.Jan 04 23:23
DaemonFCSo we're talking about a technology stuck in the era of World War II.Jan 04 23:23 04 23:24
