    Not true. mRNA vaccine research started in the 1970s, was first tested on mice in the 90s, has been used in livestock for over a decade, and was first tested on humans in 2013.

    This is, however, the first human mRNA vaccine brought to market.

    Wtf.
    To be fair they made them sit in the plane on the tarmac for like 8 hours to give it maximum chance to spread as much as possible.

    Those 61 are forced in a Isolation Hotel, the rest are send home and recommended to isolate.....
    So 10% of the people on that plane were infected but the rest can go home, madness.
    Especially insane when you consider ALL of the passangers on that plane had a clean PCR 24 hours before flying.

    Going back and rereading some of the earlier pages from this thread the thing I am most struck by is how all the COVID sceptics stopped posting. Where is Alastair, Candy Crush, Larkonis (ok I know this one) etc?

    No need to try to whip up arguments. Isn't the most charitable explanation, that they were initially sceptical, but as more data became available they changed their minds?

    Candy & Larkonis banned, IIRC.

    Alistair stopped posting altogether back at the end of March. Too much bullying by certain community members who disagreed with his opinions and never gave him credit for being one of the very few posters on this forum that actually has the balls to a) admit he was wrong and b) changed his mind after exchanging arguments.

    Alastair's own very elderly grandmother caught Covid somewhere around last summer and he was pretty certain it was going to kill her (it didn't, thankfully), so I wouldn't have called him a sceptic at the very least by that point.

    I saw the following in the news yesterday and although I somewhat was somehow aware of it all the time, seeing those numbers (again) blew my mind:

    So far worldwide

    Coronavirus Cases:
    262,549,838

    Deaths:
    5,227,930

    for the vast majority, that's 6 months to never. remember all the shenanigans over initial vaccine deliveries ?
    That was mostly AZ. Apart from some relatively minor initial start-up problems Pfizer/BioNTech has always over-delivered IIRC.
    Pfizer doesn't have the production capacity to do speedy delivery that fast, unless you're front-line staff, elderly or at risk, you're not seeing a dose before mid summer at the earliest.

    There are other places online that peg the actual death count to over 4 million in India alone, a few spots ran out of firewood for pyres, and the US has to be at least double what's reported. I haven't looked up excess deaths in a bit since I've taken up day drinking again.

    I don't think Alistair was a sceptic from a medical perspective, just political response focused.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Lallante is confusing the people he is talking about on a regular basis so dont worry about it Larkonis. Guy needs some memory pills.

    Just about your remarks at the very start of the covid pandemic. Ancient history. Also it seems you are a bad according to some if you didn't jump on the hype train from day 1. ...or something

    Considering where we are now I feel like I nailed it. And it doesn't bring any comfort. Quite the contrary, I wish I was wrong.

    And re Alistair, again I feel like I was among the few that were trying to point out instead of berating him, you should cherish him as your biggest accomplishment, as some worth discussing with, made him do a pretty much 180 on his political beliefs. Too bad other bandwagon dumdums chased him off. That's why and how this forum dies.
