  1. I think with Covid-19 vaccination and children it is easy as a parent to think that I don't have to make that choice and all will be as it is. That I can simply close my eyes to it. But it won't go away, things will not remain as they are. My kids are getting Covid-19 at some point (the one who hasn't had it already, that is ). So the choice is, do I want my children to get the virus or to get the vaccine. There are only those two options; it's a binary thing. And this is a decision every parent has to make. It is an active decision. Either Covid-19 or the vaccine. All the scientific evidence that we have suggests that Covid-19 is much more dangerous to children than the vaccine. So based on that, the choice is rather simple, in my opinion. Some argue that we don't know enough about the effects of the vaccine on kids, especially long-term effects. I tend to argue that we know a whole lot. More than most people seem to think. Another way to counter that argument is pointing out that we know even less about the effects of the virus on children. And again, this isn't a choice between getting vaccinated or not, it is between getting vaccinated or getting Covid-19.

  2. Bar is lifted once again... will not be searching for that footage. For me, whatever you want to do in your bedroom or shower fire right away! when you're on stage at a concert where there's likely a lot of different ages present, pissing on a guy isn't in any way acceptable. He was into it clearly, but that doesn't make it right! also, the motherfucker cupped it in his hand and threw it at the audience, I don't think the front row asked to be covered in her piss.

  3. Ok, I got a good laugh out of this. “The pressing is bad and it sounds like a man”: Taylor Swift fans confused by LPs pressed at 45rpm https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/news/latest-news/taylor-swift-fans-confused-by-red-taylors-version-lps-pressed-at-45rpm That last person who bought 3 different copies...

  4. Yeah, I don't need to see that stuff. I'm three weeks clean from watching naughty material on the internet. Never was a fan of watersports anyways.

  5. I agree, especially at a festival. But during a GG Allin show you knew what to expect, because he was notorious for his stage antics. I don't understand why anyone attended his shows, because there was a good chance you'd end up going home with faeces all over you or get beaten up by GG Allin himself, or both. That dude was completely out of his mind.

  6. Not to mention Silkworms/Absurd, which is simply one colossal piece of shit. Maybe that's what had him backlogged, and now that he's released it, he can pass songs through his system more regularly.

  7. So that was the problem the whole time! Fuck labels, Slash, Merck, managers! It was constipation!!! And when you think about it, the titles/lyrics do hint at that and everything around it. Cryptically, of course. It don’t really matter (can’t do it, is giving up, comforting himself) Sorry (again, feeling sorry for himself, whining) There was a time (when everything worked as usual; not any more, though) Scraped (originally as "Scrapped") If the world (would help me finally resolve this today) Shackler’s Revenge (finally got through; relief) I just hope he’s found some good laxative, cause I’m not waiting for another damn decade. Sick o’ shit, Randy. Sick o’ shit.

  11. Your body only develops immunity towards Covid-19 as a result of having had Covid-19. You are not born with an immune system primed against this disease. You develop immunity as soon as your immune system is exposed to the virus. So you can't have immunity without first having the disease. With one exception: There is one amazing health hack that can be used to trick your immune system into developing immunity against Covid-19 without having to actually get the disease! You can inject your body with inert pieces if the virus, resulting in your immune system developing weapons against the disease without actually getting sick from the disease in the process! It's called a vaccine. Fantastic stuff.

  14. I actually thought about the chance someone would read my post and misunderstand the way you did, but concluded," Nah, that's not gonna happen." In that sense, you proved me wrong What you fail to grasp in my post is that I am of course talking about getting the virus when un-vaccinated.

  16. A bit more on children and Covid-19. @Lio, I think we can safely assume your kid will get Covid-19 sooner or later. I don't see any way we can eradicate the disease before we've all had it. Unfortunately. If your kid isn't vaccinated, the likelihood of dying from Covid-19 is about one to three in a million [Children and young people remain at low risk of COVID-19 mortality - The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health]. Those odds are pretty good. Probably more likely to get killed in traffic than from Covid-19, and you won't stop your kid from being a passenger in a car based on those odds, I am sure. So nothing to really worry about, I would say. Kids are just really resilient to this disease Still, if your kid is vaccinated, the risk of dying from Covid-19 seems to drop by almost 100 times. So it goes from 1-3 in a million to 1-3 in 100 million. Now we are really talking about the likelihood being close to zero. So why wouldn't you prefer this extra protection for your kid? Probably because you fear that the vaccine is more dangerous to your kid than the virus. But is it? Well, if we are to believe the recent data published by Pfizer and BioNTech, the vaccine is safe for children, just as it is for adults (Pfizer and BioNTech Announce Positive Topline Results From Pivotal Trial of COVID-19 Vaccine in Children 5 to 11 Years | Pfizer). In the study, about 2,200 children received the vaccine, none of them developed any serious adverse effects. But death isn't really the only thing here. With kids, it is much more likely that they develop long-term symptoms from Covid-19 infection than dying from it. And the vaccine, naturally, protects against such long-term debilitation and grave effects. With the vaccine, the likelihood of long-term serious adverse effects is much, much lower.

  17. Again with the lack of freedom. Your freedom is already restricted in various ways because you live in a society with laws. You can already not walk everywhere, drive everywhere, do anything you might want. There are lots of restrictions already so stop pretending like suddenly your freedom has been taken away from you. Temporary restrictions on movement due to a pandemic doesn't change anything. "Oppression"? Really The vaccine is working, obviously. People who are vaccinated have much less change of getting infected and if they do, they suffer much less symptoms hence are less likely to have to be hospitalized or dying. But unfortunately it doesn't give you 100% protection and unfortunately its effect tapers off over time. When you in addition have countries where 30-50% of the population is not fully vaccinated, restrictions may be needed.

  20. Plant's humor is top notch, I saw him perform a couple years back at a Jazz fest. The entire night he was cracking jokes about how he had to play a more jazzy song right after he did a Zeppelin track.

  22. Now that I think about it, it's probably not that long of a story lol. I worked for Best Buy at the time and Best Buy sponsored some big tours at the time. So a lot of times, they'd want volunteers to work the tours when they came to town. Standing there, passing out Best Buy coupons and shit, etc. Then you'd get to go to the show for free. Usually only the way higher ups got any chance to meet the actual artists (if there was even a chance) but there were two instances where I got invited to come along for the meet & greet. Ozzfest was one of them and that Page/Plant tour was the other. In any case, we went to the arena and did our usual job. Then one of the higher ups came to get me and took me back stage to meet the guys. I had absolutely NO idea what to say. I mean, it's Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. What the fuck am I gonna say to them? Lol. It was quick. We were whisked into a small room to wait. The door on the other side of the room opens and in the two of them walk like two normal dudes. Everyone else in the room said really dumb things to them. "Stairway is the best song ever!" "I love Led Zeppelin!". Just generic dumb shit like that. This was 1998ish, so it was well before I knew how to handle myself around famous people, let alone legends. So I just kinda stood there taking it in. Page actually addresses me directly and said "you're a quiet one aren't you?" and Robert lifted my Best Buy name tag and said "he's a supervisor you see. Important people here. He's watching over everything" It was VERY funny. Not a dick move at all. So by just standing there I got Jimmy Page to address me directly and Robert Plant to tack on to what he said. We were moved out of the room soon after and down to the floor to watch the show. It was a very quick blur but something I'll obviously never forget.

  25. The GNR copy-write police is growing tiresome. Enjoy your youth, because time only speeds up. In the perceived time it took for you to get from high-school to twenty-four, another ten years will have passed, and you'll be going... wtf? I was young like, two seconds ago!

  26. My youngest daughter is officially finished with covid-19 now and today my wife took her to the mall. Her symptoms were mild malaise, a bit headache and a little bit of coughing. Like a mild cold. Funny how no one else in our family got it. Granted, the vaccination protected my wife and I at least, and with such mild symptoms she probable wasn't very infectious. Still boggles the mind to ponder that this was a completely new disease about two years ago, yet here we are, vaccinated and safe (at least for now). Science, bitch.

  29. last weekend I listened to Appetite while cleaning the bathroom, and I've got to say the results were sparkling. it was also my first full listen to AFD in quite a while - I've heard that album so much it feels embedded in my DNA and as such I don't always feel super inclined to return to it. But...it's still great! And using it as cleaning motivation demonstrates what a sleazy, Sunset Strip existence I lead these days "Here I am/and you're the Shower Screen" #mrcleanstone

  32. You can't blame them. Last thing you heard with Slash and Duff - Illusions. 30 years later first thing you hear with Slash and Duff - Hardskool and Absurd. They seriously should rethink retiering before going further downhill with GNR moniker
