Does anyone else have this slight dread in their stomach that they just can't shake? Like it seems like everything's going back to normal but I just can't relax as the news keeps trying to hype up these variants.I'm so worried they'll rip everything away from us again come fall time when it "suddenly" gets really bad. The only thing that kept me sane during the Corona was knowing it'd have to end one day. It would be devastating if it happens a second time.
>>10646190Hello me, what brings you to /cgl/ today?My friends only just started doing things in person again, and my plans for the future bank on cons being a thing again. I’ve felt my sanity slip a good deal this past year, I’m pretty sure COVID-20 would be the death of me.
>>10645764>Most likely to cancel on Day ZerokekI will never not be fucking mad about this
>>10646596That shit is definitely something weebs will never let Naka-Con ever forget
>>10645763>TBD>BlerdconLiterally happening this week
>>10645763Do you literally just search a list of upcoming cons and say they're all TBD? >Anime Matsuri 2021literally already happened>Blerdcon 2021100% confirmed happening, it's literally in 2 days> Delta H Con 2021100% confirmed happening, again literally 2 days from now>MegaCon Orlando 2021100% confirmed happening>Florida Supercon 2021100% confirmed happening>DragonCon 2021100% confirmed happening>SacAnime 2021100% confirmed happening>Anime Weekend Atlanta 2021100% confirmed happening>Holiday Matsuri 2021100% confirmed happeningNone of those cons are saying "Maybe, we'll see how it goes." They are actively being planned, convention/hotel space reserved, guests booked, etc. Obviously I can't speak for every con on your list, but I'd wager the vast majority of those are already confirmed and you're calling them TBD for reasons??? Some sort of doomer psyop?Get help weirdo.
>>10646814I like how Blerdcon is point blank saying vax card and mask or GTFO and being completely unapologetic about it.
>>10646836It will be interesting to see the numbers of attendees
>>10646820if NakaCon cancelled its con on Day Zero last year, anything can happen.
>>10646820Half of these cons will get cancelled thanks to the Delta variant.
>>10647006I can probably see that happen
L.A. County will require masks indoors amid alarming rise in coronavirus caseshttps://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-07-15/l-a-county-will-require-masks-indoors-amid-covid-19-surge?fbclid=IwAR1ApYXXXhmG0gGR48o6SOuQ6qxjZfGcXcNu8DuvomcF5He2hpN3APtZbtcRIP Animanga and LA Comic Con.
>>10646894Dragoncon and other cons coming up have their eyes on Blerdcon to see how practical the mask/card requirement plays out. This is why Dragoncon is waiting until August 1 to announce anything about masks.
>>10647006>thanks to the Delta variant.you mean thanks to the people, mostly conservatives, not getting the vaccine. Its only the states with low vaccine rate seeing a new wave of cases.
>>10647548Well we all knew it was going to happen eventually. How long until the rest of the country gets locked down I wonder? How long will we be locked down for this time?I can't do this again...>>10647611You know you'd think after 17 months of this blatant scam people would wise up to the fact that this is just a massive power trip by the people in charge. You're supposed to think its the "dirty trump supporters" at fault instead of seeing what's really going on. Sure though, keep falling for their plan to divide humanity and continue to hate your neighbors.
>>10647619>How long will we be locked down for this time?Forever!>I can't do this again...Weakling!
>>10647619>I can't do this again...then get vaccinated and encourage others to get vaccinated. You sound like a fatty who complains about being fat and refuses to diet and exercise. You have no interest in solving problems, you just like to wallow in your own self pity.
>>10647631Don't just assume things. I did get vaccinated. I ain't happy about it but I figured it was better than potential familial and social consequences of not. Besides it sounded nice to be able to go into places without a mask.Look what my sacrifice has brought me. Nothing. We're going back under lockdowns, putting back on our masks, and I injected an experimental drug into my body for no fucking reason.
>>10647659you can blame the other doofnozzles for not getting vaccinated and not taking measures to prevent getting infected.
>>10647659>Look what my sacrifice has brought me. Nothing.your entire post lists multiple things it brought you though. reduced "familial and social consequences", "able to go into places without a mask", and ending lockdowns. If you want less lockdowns and masks, blame the people not getting vaccinated. They are literally *the* group slowing down positive change.
>>10647670The only group slowing things down are those too afraid to go out and have fun.
>>10647659Yeah, I also can’t wait for a orange freak to go back into power in a few years as well.
>>10647670>>10647661if you guys really think getting vaxxed helps you, then why are you all so scared of the unvaxxed. literally makes no sense. you got vaxxed to supposedly protect yourself, then if it works you should not be afraid of those who are unvaxxed.
>>10647770Big conventions want this country fully vaxxed. I won’t blame the folk that got vaccinated will be mad for all eternity if AX gets cancelled for the third year in a row.
>>10647770It's the politicians. When numbers look bad they shut things down again.
>>10647770Unvaccinated people aren't just left out to die when they get covid, they are sent to hospitals, its why covid has such a high survival rate, thanks to doctors. The problem is these idiots take up beds in hospital, so it negatively affects people in hospitals that are there for reason completely unrelated to covid. When hospitals become overloaded with covid patients, EVERYONE there suffers, not just the unvaccinated people.
>>10647604Kek. No.A con the size of Dragon Con (over 80K) is not going to pay any mind to what a con the size of Blerdcon (around 3-5K, I believe) is doing.I don't think we're going to see any large conventions have vaccine requirements. They simply aren't going to spend the time and resources to do that when it's far easier for them just to force everyone to mask up.Dragon Con is waiting to announce restrictions because it's the smartest thing to do while state guidelines continue to change.
>>10647874AHAHAHAHAHAH Blerdcon made their attendance badge an actual facemask.
>>10647900That was an ingenious idea. Further feedback for future conventions is to put info on the nose part to make them go full mask
>>10647770people aren't afraid of the unvaccinated. they're annoyed that the unvaccinated are catching covid and getting politicians to shut things down again. if all the unvaccinated did was catch covid and not fuck it up for everyone else, no one would care.
>Blerdcon’s badge is literally a mask
Comicpalooza is tomorrow. Is anyone here going? I've only been to Matsuri before Covid.
>>10647900You laugh but that's actually a really slick idea that will reduce badge losses in the long run. Badge is on your faces vs "whoops my badge fell off my lanyard and i gotta pay full at the door price for a replacement"
>>10648310Are we in Nazi Germany all of the sudden? Wearing a mask with your name seems the norm now? I need to breathe ffs! Fucking nog con ruining it all.
>>10648351Yes. If you can't breathe through a mask, then you are too weak to partake in society.
>>10648351you sound like the type that would love nazi germany
>>10648379But on that note if you need a mask aren't you as weak, as well?
>>10648405no? Getting sick from a virus has no baring on how strong or weak someone is. A strong immune system helps fight viruses, but doesn't prevent.Strong, healthy people can be hurt or killed by a virus. No strong or healthy person has trouble breathing with a mask.
>>10648351>>10648408Seriously, even pathetic weaklings have no trouble breathing in a mask.
>>10648351why are you so mad no one even wears masks anymore lol
When this thread was first posted a week ago, my reaction was "All these cons are 100% happening, why are these doomer twats still hanging around?"Over the past couple of days the reality that we're going to see a 4th wave has set in and I don't know what the fuck to think now.I'm sure conventions scheduled within the next month such as Otakon will happen, but beyond that it's anybody's guess.
>the AX Lite 2021 website is still up despite that you can’t watch the streams anymore>not even a peep on AX 2022
>>10648497>AX 2022Don't you mean AX Lite 2022?
>>10648504AX Lite 2022
>>10648507Did I stutter? It's happening.
>>10647619>You're supposed to think its the "dirty trump supporters" at fault instead of seeing what's really going on.There is a direct correlation between areas that voted more for trump and less likely to be vaccinated. Which is sorta odd concidering Trump himself got vaccinated.https://twitter.com/NGrossman81/status/1416724328591282176
>tfw gotta wait another year before going to a proper convention>tfw it might get cancelled again due to moronsI was hoping this year would be fine now that the vaccine is out, but delta niggers made sure we can't
>most of /cgl/ is literally too white/racist to go to blerdconLiterally one of the sexist, raunchiest conventions this side of the mississippi. Its practically an anime-themed erotica convention.
>>10648481Liberal states/events will play the shutdown game. Others will move on. The case/deaths chain has completely broken with vaccines.
>>10648852This is good news. Look at the UK's numbers (cases on top, deaths on bottom). This is with a significant portion of the population using that shitty AZ vaccine.Of course I expect a mildly increased death rate in America because of the.. antivaxxer problem.
>>10648872literally what are you talking about? cases are rising with deaths following. How is that good news?
>>10647900If you'd like to have another laugh at Blerdcon, a White person won their cosplay contest. Kek.There's a thread on FB I just saw about it, and people are throwing around words like "colonization" and "gentrification" along with other words they don't know the definition of as they seethe.
>>10648998The good news is that cases that result in death are seemingly making up a smaller percentage of overall cases thanks to vaccines reducing the chance of being hospitalized or dying compared to just catching it unvaxxed.
>>10649118how are you possibly coming to that conclusion? Nearly everyone getting covid aren't vaccinated
>>10649131I could be reading the graphs anon posted wrong, but even if it isn't directly related to the vaccine (I don't know as much about which ones and the details in the UK) it seems like the deaths are still making up way less than the cases compared to before even though case numbers have spiked recently which isn't ideal (the spike) but better than a lot of people dying.
>>10649139deaths and cases don't rise at the same time, people don't die as soon as they get covid, anon.....
>>10649176some news sources were acting like they do desu, claiming healthy 30 year old athletes dropped dread 3 days after catching it
>>10647548There's now talk coming out of Sacramento that this could be statewide soon.
>>10649229With Biden in charge I fear this could become nationwide at this point
>>10649312Kek as if.The red states will do whatever the fuck they please.
>>10647820>Unvaccinated people aren't just left out to die when they get covidMost everyone who gets it is told to stay home unless it gets bad, and most of the time, it doesnt get bad.
>>10649431ok and? There are 34 confirmed million cases in the US, even just 10% is over 3 million people filling up hospitals that are already near capacity.
>>10649446Good thing like it's nowhere near that bad..There have been 34mil confirmed cases, and probably 100-200 mil actual total cases.
>>10649465Things aren't as bad because the covid cases are UNDER counted? I heard lunatics say covid isn't that bad because the cases are OVER counted, but saying its not bad because its under counted is a new one.
>>10648779Best part about blerdcon is that there were practically no funky and dirty people at the con with people actually smelling and dressing good. There's a whole thread on their FB mentioning this.
>>10649378Guess where the most cases and least vaccinated areas are?
>>10649571Yeah? I must've missed that among the 24385329 threads full of people seething about a White girl winning the cosplay contest. Kek.
San Diego Comic Con is here! The first day was amazing and tiring.
AVCON 2021 just got cancelled
>>10650645Meh. A convention in Australia got cancelled? No on cares.Wake me up when cons in the USA start getting cancelled.......shit, I can't even pretend to be cocky about this now that the 4th wave is happening.All I want is to get one fucking con in before the shit hits the fan. Unfortunately, my next planned con isn't for another couple of months, and who knows what's going to happen by then.
>>10650737>Furry shit con gets cannedAnd nothing of value was lost.
The november SDCC is still habbening right?
>>10645763Mechcon 2021 just finished today and forever. rip.
>>10646836too bad delta hits vaxxed at a much higher rate than unvaxxed according to the uk india and israel numbers. cant wait for 2022 cons: if your in a hazxmat itll be ok!
>>10647661>a year of no vaxx and no new strains>6 "vaccines" come out>new strains everywhere>iTs tHe UnVaXxEd FaUlT!1lel
>>10647631>then get vaccinated and encourage others to get vaccinated.>start selling snake oil to peopleHave fun with ADE retard. God I fucking hate normies>"b-but the government said t-to! you have to! trust the science don't question it!! do what you're told by authority figures shitlord! absolute reduction? risk assessment? what's that! I can't wait to get my booster this winter uwu!"Prove germ theory is correct first. Then we can start talking about the implications of Coronavirus that only kills 0.02% of people aged 18-35 who test positive for it with 28 days of dying. >B-but muh long coverDoesn't exist. Literally 70-80% women and most don't even have a positive COVID test, fuck, some even tested negative. It's literal hypochondria and astroturfing.Where was the spike after Florida and Texas opened up months ago? Where was the spike after the superbowl? Where was the spike after one of the most populated sporting events in history? You never fucking learn.>m-muh delta!Literally has the same symptoms as hay fever.The only people getting the vaxx are fucking fatties who have reason to be afraid of COVID. Maybe try eating a salad instead of forcing your bullshit nothing cure (that doesn't even prevent you from catching COVID 50% of the time) on regular people.Actual fucking brainlets. I wouldn't be surprised if you're a bot or a glowie. You're a lemming either way and are the governments bitchlet. Worse than jannies, assuming you're just a retard you're doing the governments bidding FOR FREE.
>>10648054>they're annoyed that the unvaccinated are catching covid and getting politicians to shut things down again.BE MAD AT THE POLITICIANS WHO ARE SHUTTING THINGS DOWN THEN!? Fuck I hate woman dominated boards, absolutely filled to the brim with retards.
>>10651721>Then we can start talking about the implications of Coronavirus that only kills 0.02% of people aged 18-35 who test positive for it with 28 days of dying.whats the death rates of vaccines, anon?
>AX and SDCC announce their 2022 dates>The entire state of California is one step closer to having an indoor mask mandate and eventually another round of lockdowns by the fallNot so fast!
Atlanta just ordered a mask mandate.https://www.wsbtv.com/news/local/atlanta/city-atlanta-reinstates-mask-mandate-covid-19-cases-continue-rise/MGSP7W22DFBS3EALSD4J4SDUXU/
>>10647770>mfwStupidest take. Do you know why variants like delta are a thing? Because when unvaccinated people get covid, they are mutation factories that produce variants. While they have covid in their bodies, it reproduces with other viral diseases in their body, and produces mutations that vaccines are less effective against: vaccines only protect 92% against covid delta. This is the same reason we have flu variants. Inb4 why doesn’t the flu go away with vaccines then? (Because the flu has lots of different vectors of mutations, such as birds, pigs, etc.) covid doesn’t. So yeah, your stupid selfish ass not getting vaccinated fucks it up for everyone.>Learn some actual epistemology ffs
>>10652344>epistemologyEpidemiology >mfw I’m the stupid one
>>10652339>Still a month before Dragon ConIt's getting cancelled.
>>10652344Anon, you know the "vaccine" does not protect you from covid? You do know that the variants come from people who have the vaccine? The virus has a mutation because of the vax already in your body, it adapts so it can continue to spread. You can blame whoever you want, but every one isn't going to be safe even if you put an experimental drug into your body.
>>10652409Covid variants appeared before vaccines even rolled out you absolute idiot
>>10652344Go back to facebook, this isn't even reddit tier iq tier. The delta variant came from poc (India) and most unvaxxed people are immigrants/poc. When you say that unvaxxed people are a thread what you are really saying is that you are racist.
>>10652441*reddit tier iqforgot to delete second tier when editing
>>10652410this is incorrect, they emerged from the highest vaccinated areas roughly two weeks after mass vaccinations.
>>10652386I don't think Dragon Con is going to be cancelled, but it's not impossible. They're going to make a statement on August 1 (this Sunday), so we'll find out what's going on soon.Something I noticed that seemed odd to me was that Dragon Con will not let us know how many memberships will be available this year "at the request of Public Health Officials and our government partners."Is there any good reason for them to withhold that information?
>>10652470If they plan to still go ahead I'm sure there won't be the traditional parade.
>>10652470I'm thinking they want to try keep attendee numbers low. Cancelling Dragon Con for a second time outright will be a back breaker even for them.
>>10652445Who ever told you this is lying to you to get money off you. You are being tricked, you aren't part of some elite class that "TRULY" know what going on, you are being conned by a bunch of grifters profiting off your gullibility.>This variant is estimated to have first emerged in the UK during September 2020.>Since December 20, 2020, several countries have reported cases of the B.1.1.7 lineage, including the United States.https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/science-briefs/scientific-brief-emerging-variants.html
>>10652527But how does not announcing what the attendance limit is keep the attendee numbers low?
>>10652499By next summer we'll have 20 different variants that will likely be immune to vaccinations. Making any physical social event impossible to hold.
>>10652470Anything can happen in August that would either kill Dragon Con or make it an unenjoyable event. No way you're going to cram thousands of people inside hotel lobbies.
>>10646820>>Holiday Matsuri 2021>100% confirmed happeningI want to believe, but all this delta variant news leads me to believe that they won’t have the option. If covid is going to be beaten it’s going to require federal level lockdowns and mandatory masking, with actual jail time being a consequence of non compliance.
>>10647619>I can't do this again...Stop being a pussy. If you were smart you would’ve spent the last 17 months making your house a comfy place to be forever, instead of whining about it. Lockdowns are the new reality and if you can’t handle that you should bite a bullet.
Don’t fuck this up for all of us, Republicans
>>10653051Lmao still blaming Republicans >>10652527Why not just cancel the event? Why are they trying to ride this weird middle ground? Keeping attendees low = money lost..I'm glad I got to go to one unmasked con this year, Metrocon was a blast
>>10653195>Why not just cancel the event?Cancelling Dragoncon will outright break them financially because of the contractual obligations to the host hotels and the Americasmart. Insurance companies are also reneging on "Act of god" clauses as well. Going through with the con is quite literally the "less bad option" of the bunch. Also take note that the host hotels desperately need Dragoncon to go on even with a reduced capacity as well as they were hit bad like all the other hotels out there.
>>10653195>Lmao still blaming Republicansso.. just a massive coincidence that states with the lowest vaccination rates also voted for trump the most? And that the most liberal cities in those states have the highest vaccination rates?
>>10653226Also, January 6, 2021
>>10653195>Lmao still blaming RepublicansGet your head out of Tucker Carlson’s gaping asshole if you actually want Anime Expo to be a thing in 2022
>>10653445The only mistake they made on that day is not being armed and having poor opsec so they got caught
>>10653472That and them not taking things seriously, because if they had guns with that John Wick aim, it would’ve been a literal bloodbath
>>10653051>underestimating what kind of damage the Republicans can do to everyone this fucking hard
Holy shit you guys are so delusional thinking the republican MAGA meemaws are out to get you, the media has you traumatized lmaoLeave it to mentally unstable "woke" seagulls with daddy issues to blame old white people for their problems
>>10655135republicans are refusing to vaccinate, which is causing covid to continue to spread, infecting thousands per day, killing hundreds per day, and shutting down events. There are republicans literally on their death bed, dying from covid, saying covid is a hoax or "just the flu". People claiming a virus is a hoax, while dying from that virus, are the delusional people.
>>10655135Old boomers that refuse to adapt to change are why the US is shit. Affordable healthcare? Improved infrastructure? Oh and is much as retards like to memory hole it, Jan 6.
>>10655135Man it blows. Literally just keep screaming MUH POLITICS. Some people just don't want to get an unnecessary, non fda approved cocktail dumped into them. Ive been told so many times ill be sorry when I'm gasping for breath in the ER. And I've just been like, cool. I'll wheeze you were right then. Until that time I'm just going to keep up with exercise and good eating habits.
>>10655177So you trust a chinese created virus more than a american made vaccine? Sounds like tankie talk
New York International Auto Show just got cancelled. If this 4th wave isn't in a major decline by the end of the month, RIP NYCC. And probably others.Shit is really starting to hit the fan now.Depressing as fuck to think about how pointless this thread seemed when it was created just a month ago, because things were on track to getting back to normal.Look at us now.
>>10655188>So you trust a chinese created virus more than a american made vaccine?Not him but unironically yes. I caught COVID and I was fuckin fine.
>>10655208And I was fine after getting the vaccine, so the vaccine is nothing to worry about either then, right?
AnimeNYC will require vaccine proofExpect NYCC to do the same
>>10655325I want to point out that in their post, they also mentioned "should vaccinations rise and COVID cases fall, we could see a relaxation of these guides before November."If NYC does relax those restrictions, then Anime NYC and NYCC will almost certainly drop the vaccination requirement.These cons only care about their profits, and checking vaccination records would cost them time and resources (money).If they do have to end up checking vaccination cards, there will be a very lengthy wait to get in (probably 3-4 hours). Both cons have royally fucked up so many things in the past that anyone that thinks they could pull this off without a hitch is out of their damn mind.
>>10655377>>10655325I don't know if you guys have gone out lately but all this vaccine checking is theater. They just fucking glance at it. Sometimes ask for a ID to make sure the name/birthday matches but you can use a digital picture of your pass because only a retard would carry around that flimsy piece of shit paper.That aside if you are an actual NY resident then you have the excelsior pass which is actually a legit thing, but there is no way they would require that considering anyone coming from outside NY wouldn't be in that sysrtem
>>10655485This is true. But there's really not much more they can do other than glance at it, since there's not a barcode to scan or anything else on the cards to verify their authenticity. Vax cards are a fucking joke, at least here in the USA.There's no point in doing anything but glancing at it, and spending extra time staring at it will do nothing but create longer wait times to get in.

>>10655624Look, if the Cheeto stepped up to the plate and took care of it, this would never have happened and you would’ve also gotten 4 more years. You guys had a win win proposition and completely chucked it in the trash because of a piece of cloth over your face

>>10655644Covid is actually the common cold.
>>10655485Meanwhile more people are leaving NY while Cuomo and Deblasio are about,to resign and everyone is screwing each other.
>>10655877Its not. The people telling you it is are taking advantage of you and profiting off your gullibility.
>>10655644The news doesn't "educate", it makes a profit off of fearmongering and sensationalism. Ignorance is bliss, no more dealing with /pol/tards and woke leftoids.
>>10655900It is the cold you dipshit.
>>10655877The common cold is caused by rhinitis
>>10655920>>10655929This is a lie and the people lying to you are profiting off your gullibility. Creating lies is free and easy, and saps like you will eat it up. Real journalism is expensive. Anyone offering news to you for free that isn't a nonprofit journalism organization shouldn't be trusted. They are just using useful idiots like you to further their agenda and rake in money.
>>10655929love how you sheep aren't even creative, just mindlessly repeating the exact same thing that your told by the scam artists. Have fun in your grave.
>>10655952>scam artistsYou're not wrong and it's a problem in our country, I hope we get rid of'em including you as well.
>>10655943I didn't say anything about free vs paid news, I said that ALL news just puts you in a bad mood. That's what it did to me, whether it was CNN, FOX, MSNBC, Alex Jones, Styxhexenhammer666, or /pol/. I don't care about Trump, or Biden, or chinkflu, or any of that shit. I just wanna grill for god's sake! I want to play vidya, watch anime, tend to my plants, enjoy a nice day outside, beat my meat to 2D lolis, enjoy some good food, and be happy. Like the bald goatee dude from The Matrix said: ignorance is bliss.
>>10655954The get a vaccine and encourage others to do the same? The anti-vaxxers are literally the reason we can't just return to normal and relax.
>>10655943>Real journalism is expensive.Bullshit.
>>10655978>The anti-vaxxers are literally the reason we can't just return to normal and relax.You and the delusional all around you are the reason why personal freedom is being taken away. Vaxxers like you deserve the rope.
>>10658159wow, excellent retort. How much did that cost you?>>10658161Your freedoms end where another person's begin. You don't have the freedom to harm other people. You are a harm to society if you don't vaccinate.
Was anything of value lost? https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2021-08-11/pennsylvania-saikoucon-cancels-2021-event-all-future-events/.176138
>>10658203They have no one to attend, RIP for that con.
>>10658161>You and the delusional all around you are the reason why personal freedom is being taken away. Vaxxers like you deserve the rope.kys or at least let someone cough on you so the rona can do it asap
>>10658195You harm yourself and all others you contact by having taken those shots. Please stay home and don't infect anyone.
>>10658228anon the smooth brain strikes again
>>10658229Educate yourself, 3:35 if you're pressed for time.https://youtu.be/auSox6ybZD8
>>10658228yes, vaccinated people are very dangerous, 50% of americans are even vaccinated now! You should stay home and wear a mask if you ever feel brave enough to go out in public.
>>10658231So this is just a complete coincidence then, that higher vaccinated areas have fewer cases?https://twitter.com/NateSilver538/status/1424862638262136839
>>10653051Spoilers: They will. Fucking plague rats.
>>10652344Fun fact. 30% of deer taken in the eastern US tested positive for Covid antibodies. Deer arent getting vaccinated, there's always going to be plenty of hosts to provide variants. Enjoy your coof, its not going away no matter how much control you give the government.
>>10659274except deer variants are more likely to cause more harm to.. you know... deer.
>>10659287This and humans don't have regular contact with deer like they do with say dogs, cats, or farm animals which would be more worrying and a likely source for future zoonotic viruses (the farm animals specifically) to develop.
Listen to (((science))), people
>>10659295I mean I was afraid to go outside during protests so as not to be mistaken for a protestor by the cops. Plus not wanting to be around if any shit went down in general. And I'm sure people who find the protestors scary or whatever were also incentivized to stay indoors since things in some places got violent and dangerous in some situations.Pretty sure that's what they meant, not that the people walking in groups were stopping the spread, but that the non protestors who were scared into staying at home helped reduce spread because there was less foot traffic in stores or other enclosed places cause those were all boarded up or closed during late afternoon and evening which was often when the biggest clashes between cops and protestors, looting, rioting, or any of the bad stuff usually started.Also people attending those protests were at minimum performatively woke enough to wear a face covering (and it'd prolly help reduce the effects of teargas or whatever other riot control stuff was thrown at them to have nose and mouth covered) and somewhat quarantine before or after, so yeah they were not going to spread as much as a packed concert where people are sucking face and getting drunk or an anti-masker rally in comparison.
>>10659292farm animals, especially. If you want less viruses, eat less meat, especially from factory farms where they shove hundreds of animals into crowded pins, which are a breeding ground for viruses.
>>10659307But also it's important to remember that even if a new virus jumps over to humans, we have effective tools to mitigate the spread. We just need to use them and not let retards fuck the rest of us over. If this was a zombie apocalypse we'd have all known what to do but when the illness is a slow burn that never affects you until it happens to you or someone you love people feel more apprehensive about what to sacrifice or put up with to deal with the threat which is sad because we could have easily been out of this or well on our way way it months ago.
>>10655952people have died from colds.
>>10659946basically, the cold hasnt disappeared
>Lumi-con cancelled right before I bought my tickets>now I'm waffling over HolMat 2021I want to get my tickets at the right price but damnit now I'm sketchy. Metro and Mega went off just fine, though.
ALA 2022 is close to being kill
>>10655871Had fun at Otakon. Nothing happened. No ones granny got the coof.
>>10655873I don’t even think democrats simp hard for Hasan
Getting nervous for CCE, fucking delta variant. All my roommates for the hotel are vaxxed and on the same page about masks, but obviously we can only control what goes on in our own hotel room, not the con at large. Not sure how the Kalahari is going to enforce masks, if at all, which I think is the more likely scenario. Reee.
>>10662141The Kalahari wasn't even enforcing masks when PA had a mask mandate, so I would not expect that to change when the convention takes place.I still haven't seen any sort of covid restrictions posted for the con yet, which is now less than a month away. I recall that at the Ohio convention, they stated that masks would be required in certain areas, but it wasn't enforced and only maybe a quarter of people were wearing their masks in those areas.If you're worried about catchin' the coof, just plan to spend most of your time at the water park. It doesn't get particularly crowded there, so you can pretty much social distance as much as you feel the need to.Honestly, if you aren't spending most of your weekend at the waterpark, you're doing it wrong. CCE is pretty much a shit-tier convention by itself, and is only popular because of the venue.
>>10662138I'm left/democrat and think Hasan is a sniveling little twat. The guy is incredibly fucking annoying, and I can't see anything about his personality that could be appealing to anyone.The only people that simp for Hasan are the dumb bitches (and guys, I guess) that find him attractive and want to suck his dick.Basically the same sort of people that simp for Leon Chiro despite his history of sexual harassment/assault and the fact that he hates joggers.
>>10659986basically stop worrying and live your life
>>10662220Hasan is just basically a Democrat Paul Joseph Watson
Two weeks out from Otakon and no reports of it being a super-spreader event?
>>10662679I'm sure it was, it's just that no one wants to get tested because they'll have to stay home from work and cause businesses to close and cons to cancel.
>>10662220Least he’s better than Paul Joseph Watson
>>10666626as is 99% of the people on earth
>>10653226>so.. just a massive coincidence that states with the lowest vaccination rates also voted for trump the most?They also have the most number of blacks to deal with, hence the low vaccination rate. Even when it comes to vaccines, the best indicator if you are unvaxxed is race. Just like the crime rate.
>>10666687>They also have the most number of blacksYou think Idaho and Wyoming have a high % of black population? How stupid are you racists?
>>10666687>the best indicator if you are unvaxxed is raceActually it's political affiliation. Republican men are the least vaxxed group in the country
>Fall cons are still a go even though governments have already planned for another lockdown within the coming monthskek
>>10666626His voice singlehandedly proved that all brits are annoying
Ive never been to a con, but today I'll be going with my friend and his slightly popular cosplayer husband (I'm straight). I have a jinbei and gets from when I used to live in Japan, but I was thinking normal clothes are fine, maybe a Tokyo Disney shirt might be relatable for the shy nerds enough to strike up convos easily. How do I con this shit right bros?
>get the jab>go to a con where everyone else has the jab>by doing this I'm spreading the coofI don't get it. Why do people care at this point? Everyone who wanted it got it by now and they won't get sick or die if they do end up getting it. The only people in danger are the ones who don't want help so why should I care if some horse jizz chugging MIGAfag gets it because he want to the same con as me?
>>10669257Because an unfortunate number of people are lying about having had the jab, and horse jizz will take up a valuable ventilator when he goes back on one when he gets home, as will the rest of his unvaxxed friends when he gives it to them.
>>10669265>The people lying about it don't want it for whatever reason>they get sick when they could have gotten the free jab Again. Why should I worry about someone who literally doesn't want to be helped?
>>10669280Because it’ll effect you if enough of them are around you and expose you to enough viral load that you get sick. I’m all for vax only cons, but enough people are still lying about being vaxxed (look through other threads) that masking is still a good idea.
>>10669280Better hope you don't have a heart attack. anti-vaxxers are crowding up hospitals, meaning people who get sick or injured are suffering too from lack or available ICU beds.
>>10669292Some non-N95 mask will do practically nothing compared to a vaccine. If you're that paranoid, just don't go to conventions.
>>10669321Ergo, wear an N95 mask, get vaxxed, and don’t take the mask off unless you're outside or in a well-ventilated area.
>>10669325The vaccine itself will already make it so that, even if you do get sick, your symptoms are more mild. A well-fitted N95 mask will actually make it harder to breathe, and will probably look like shit. Not to mention you can't pull it off to eat or drink water because god forbid someone breathe on you. If you're that paranoid, why even subject yourself to a con?
So I imagine Royal Vegas Retreat is probably going to happen since Vegas has been a lot more lax on restrictions? I'd be gutted if it was cancelled last minute.
>>10669457>same weekend as SinCity AnimeWhy?
>>10669506Anime cons are a dime a dozen. I doubt even a quarter of the people flying in for RVR would do so for SinCity Anime
>magfest requiring full vaxIt's like they really want to be buried.
>>10669588I think the goal of it is to make sure people AREN'T buried.
>SDCC November Edition to be limited only to professionals Wtf?
>>10669517Maybe they would for both.
>>10672593Magfest is already six feet buried and about to go deeper.
>>10673451What happened now?
Tickets for the Thanksgiving SDCC will be sold next Saturday.I hope i can get one. I'll probably ask a coworker if he is also gunningHopefully alot of people will be filtered out because>Thanksgiving>Biden's America make sure that International attendees wont come>Most people broke from COVID
AnimeNEXT, which isn't being held until June 2022, just made a long post about their covid policy. Vaccine required, masks required at all times. No badges being mailed, so look forward to long wait times to get in.I'm someone that is actually taking the pandemic seriously, but making policies for an event that's that far away is just fucking retarded.Mind you, this is a con that's cancelled for two years in a row now. This might be the end for them.
>>10674096>Giving up Thanksgiving family time to hang out with random nerds and weebs along with a chance to catch covid even though everyone is vaccinated or tested negative.
>>10674888You can say the same thing for Otakon and they were fine.
>>10675335Because they had no real choice. Of course the con was a shell of itself
