    This pandemic has taught me a lot about government and media

    Maybe they know what they're doing but I dunno I'll take my chanches from here on in

    Open to correction,but was Germany's social distance set at 1.5 Metre ?


    Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.

    That's mad, I'll stick to the Oxford or dictionary.com definitions (I know they changed the wording slightly on MW but that was a minor update on what was already there).

    I saw it on Twitter. It wasn't this tweet in particular I don't think but it looks like the same video. https://twitter.com/abirballan/status/1485544167002488832

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." ~C.S. Lewis

    I don't know where to begin.


    Maybe look at influenza vaccine. The vaccine is typically ineffective after six months. The covid19 vaccine wears off too hence the need for more.... It's not like a polio vaccine that gives life long immunity.

    If you're ever wondering why the lockdown went ok on so long have a read of this

    in fairness, doctors in hospital find it hard to relate the deadly 2020 wave to Omicron and fair play to NPHET this time for ending the pandemic but still seems a lot of people want to work from home.

    I don’t see much wrong with that thread tbh. Its not as if they are saying they are anxious about going back because they don’t feel safe in the workplace or because they are vulnerable etc.

    I think I’d be the same if I had to go back to commuting etc.

    Not saying there's anything wrong but I am saying there is a cohort happier with restrictions.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,579 ✭✭✭ User1998


    To be fair, they are happier working from home, they don’t mention anything about being happier with restrictions

    See, you're still.posting complete nonsense about the effectiveness of vaccines, its still the binary works or doesn't work when even at the very beginning, everything was percentages, now, hopefully we're at the end stage of this and it won't matter soon and this is one last attempted mental gymnastics.

    I mean, nothing you've posted is in any way scientific, why pretend.
