    Should just do the same thing with the jab, call it "holy water." With a wink and a nudge, "it is time for your internal baptism."

    I had some fun imagining you saying that to these people and then .. the stoning of the infidel. Holy water is a Catholic thing. Nothing worse, really. (Sincerely, I chortled in real life.) A-not-even-close-to-this-level-of-Calvinism friend of my mum's once said to me when I was about to marry Overspark: "A shame that he's an atheist, but at least he's not a Catholic. That would have been much worse."

    No holy water for Calvinists? Call it Calvin pissing, or whatever they are in to.

    Do you want the airlines to go bust?! YOU MONSTER! THINK OF THE SHAREHOLDERS
    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.

    Funny that you say that. At my work the paranoid schizophrenics, who as i said before are arguably correct for once in their mind-state, have a higher #drumroll# vaccination rate than the general dutch population.

    Pls dont diss the people with real mental health issues

    It was a lighthearted joke and I'm sure paranoid schizophrenics on medication are quite all right in terms of being able to make their own decisions.

    On the other hand the hordes of unvaccinated and (arguably mentally healthy) people exist and don't really care about their collective IQ being in the low double digits territory as long as they're sufficiently distracted.


    I came across this article and it's hilarious how the critics reacted to Don't Look Up. Hint - exactly as the media in the movie reacted to common sense suggestions.

    I got it was a joke, my smiley was ment to say i get that.

    I have been watching a few documentary's lately on other virus times. The HIV/AIDS talking points is so much like Covid. A few things are different as i see, im sure i am not the first. Social media with manipulation both ways and loss of religion even more than in the 80s. Not believing a pope anymore but putting the same faith into a anti-vax guru. Information over-flow is another.

    Very bored at this NYE party, should get more booz i guess as being on FHC 45m before midnight is also silly i guess

    Interesting, some statistician mentioned on BBC that the UK daily numbers could be around 500k at the moment simply because the government figures are not including re-infections and a lot of people can't get hold of test kits in the first place. The next few weeks will be scary when these numbers are translating to hospital admissions and deaths.

    You do realize that you are just like Lief saying " some statistician mentioned " and blabla. It is just from the 'correct' side.

    Except all he said was "could be" and those ideas are ones commonly referenced then confirmed thru the pandemic. Nothing like Lief's insane bullshit.

    What are you talking about? This has been the case since Day 1 lol. Confirmed cases do not come close to representing all of the infections in the wild

    Is the CDC now telling American healthcare employees that they should work while covid + and having symptoms but then they should isolate when not working?
