  1. it's no reason for shame that you barely finished college. you seem the be a student at the university of life, and I'll be the last person to ridicule that but have you ever wondered how there are not more infections / deaths in africa, despite the very low vaccination rate? don't you find that odd?
  2. you're a real sceptic you're not much different than me
  3. I have my own examples of vaccinated people who died of covid anyway, or because of the side effects of the vaccine soulmonster would say: anecdotal evidence in most cases, the vaccine works So I don't particulary feel like a huge risk, to the general population
  4. ok, I agree that, possibly, you pose less of a risk of infecting others, than me. but, people can be vaccinated if they wish so, for free. if we agree that vaccines work, then even when I infect other people, there should not be a problem, wouldn't you agree? the only people I put at risk, are people who themselves refused to be vaccinated. but then, these people (including myself), should take the consequences
  5. don't ask me, I'm no expert. I can only repeat my earlier source; How do vaccinated people spread Delta? What the science says (nature.com) Data from COVID-19 tests in the United States, the United Kingdom and Singapore are showing that vaccinated people who become infected with Delta SARS-CoV-2 can carry as much virus in their nose as do unvaccinated people. This means that despite the protection offered by vaccines, a proportion of vaccinated people can pass on Delta, possibly aiding its rise.
  6. you can infect other people too
  7. vaccinated people still pose a risk to infect other people. Wether I am altruistic or not, really has no relevance to anything How do vaccinated people spread Delta? What the science says (nature.com) Data from COVID-19 tests in the United States, the United Kingdom and Singapore are showing that vaccinated people who become infected with Delta SARS-CoV-2 can carry as much virus in their nose as do unvaccinated people. This means that despite the protection offered by vaccines, a proportion of vaccinated people can pass on Delta, possibly aiding its rise.
  8. I don't have a particular stance "against" vaccines other than "we'll talk again in 5 years", it's rather that I make the positive choice to opt for a different approach nature has gifted us with this amazing thing called killer blood cells, that give us protection against all sorts of disease, all for free
  9. there is not a single country, in the whole world, that has issued an obligation to the population to be vaccinated. therefore, there is a choice. people can chose wether to be vaccinated or not. and if the choice "not" to be vaccinated, proves to be such a huge problem, then the government should put their money where their mouth is, and issue an obligation. why does that not happen? and what is the expert's stance on natural immunity?
  10. I'll thank him for the recommendation
  11. I'm not vaccinated. I chose to build natural immunity. It works for the good people in africa, and it works for me. I'm in good health, should you be wondering. you won't hear from me that the vaccines don't work, because I am in no position to say so. I'm sure there are a lot more knowledgeable people to say more about that. the example of africa shows that there are other strategies to combat the virus, namely: natural immunity.
  12. I believe in natural immunity as for the vaccines, I'll leave that to the experts
  13. they must be dropping dead in africa all over the place then. oh, wait... https://www.afro.who.int/news/fifteen-african-countries-hit-10-covid-19-vaccination-goal "Half of the 52 African countries that have received COVID-19 vaccines have fully vaccinated just 2% or less of their populations" "COVID-19 case numbers in Africa dropped by 35% to just over 74 000 in the week to 26 September. "
  14. lung cancer, heart disease and obesity, while not contageous (although you can get lung cancer from second hand smoke), kill exponentially more people each year, than covid. So this has a large impact on society as a whole. the only reason covid has the impact it does, is because of government regulations and a historic lack of investment in hospitals
  15. he wears different clothes than me, so he's guilty
  16. I find it strange to engage in situations that offer you "no win" a lot of the time. If I ever would find myself in that position, where I'm spending a lot of time and resources into something, anything, that offers me nothing back, then I would just close the business. So therefore, allow me to put question marks with the comment that "staff are in a no win situation a lot of the time". That's painting a rather doom and gloom image of the situation, that is hardly accurate with reality. Surely, they get "something " back from doing this? You too, must have at one point got something back from your position. Somewhere along the line, that something got lost for whatever reason. My point being, it's not all doom and gloom. Face the bad stuff, enjoy the good stuff, and move forward like a true man.
  17. also, I asked my son of 8, what is your favorite star wars movie, and he said rise of the skywalker. I can see where he's coming from. He also likes the kylo ren character I guess it's all great fun for kids
  18. bit late to the party, but my son is into star wars, I never was, and so I watched all these films for the first time properly, and it was entertaining if only for the cool spaceships. I'm not a star wars fan at all, I don't really care about the story, and so I don't bear the frustrations many other people have. I know star wars from the N64 video games, and nothing else. In this respect, I found the 1977 movie a bit boring, ESB had the great hoth scenes, but I feel rise of the skywalker has some truly awesome space battles, even if I don't know what's going on. I thought the movies were great fun, all in all. obviously, these recent movies have the best space battles. these movies make me want to watch the indy movies again. Han solo is the best character of the series.
  19. no one is forced to post here. I'm missing all those people too, but it's their decision not to post here anymore. Everyone has their reasons. It's like a snowball though. One poster leaves, that makes another person leave and so on. I hope some of those people read what we have to say about them, see that we miss them and maybe they'll come back. I don't really see the point though, with all those great people gone. For me, they were / are the heart and soul of this community. I'm a bit lost for topics to talk about, with all those people gone. I don't really want to leave myself, but with whom am I gonna talk about chickens and other randomness? I can't talk to myself can I?
  20. I can relate! Turned off the sound, I just couldn't stand it anymore. I think on my last attempt I replayed this mission 10 times, always getting a bit further. When losing all your lives it was quicker to use the reset button in stead of going through that ranking list, which took forever. It was really cathartic when I finished it, because it always kinda bugged me I couldnt finish that level. First I went for the missile launchers as quick as I could, and when that was gone I got a little breathing space again. Got a bit nervous when the force shield was gone and I didn't know what I was supposed to do, and then the liberating score screen. Now, on to moff seerdon's revenge. Another nightmare.
  21. I've just completed the "raid on sullust" level of the first rogue squadron game, for the first time ever. Thought I'd never see the day. Of all the games I ever played, this is easily in my top 3 of hardest levels ever, because I've only managed to beat it after 23 years.
  22. one good thing about carona: I've finally got an excuse to grow a jim morrison haircut
