He's not wrong, though. Hospital censuses were way down. It's the ICUs that were full. But ICUs are always full, because nobody's going to build ICU wings that aren't going to be used. The fear was that compounding demand for ICU bedspace between the normal influenza and RSV season and Covid would push things way over capacity.

So who cares if it’s on the high end of median earnings, unless you are a google or Apple worker you are likely fucked, as you pay higher taxes, things are more expensive, and you get paid less

Rate(Hate) your uni
I went to pic related, do not fucking go here.
First of all Seattle is a pozzed shit hole
Second I fucking nuclear czar bombed one of my classes and when I retook it instead of like any normal institution that replaces the grade they refused to replace the grade and kept both and didn't even give me credit for taking it again.
Third most of the degrees range from 60-50 credits but you need 180 to graduate and have to spend ludicrous amounts of munies of fucking classes like gender studies.
this place is the reason I make so many charts and infographics because it made me hate not only college but also life.
I should have gone to europe for school since it already cost my mum, yeah my mum is the only one that supports my education despite her only making around 40k a year and supports three children, a fucking fortune.
I didn't want to bother because of the test taking, but I know I would have passed them I just didn't for some retard reason.
I couldn't get into my fucking major until like the middle of the fucking second year.
fuck uni, mate. Uncle Ted was right.

Usually only community colleges and open enrollment universities remove failures after passing. Even when they do, they don't actually get rid of the record of your first fail because it must be included in any transcript they send to any other school.

We're going back to masks later this year because covid19 isn't the only respiratory disease that causes harm. The data shows the number of deaths from all other respiratory infections made a dramatic decline when masks were required. Now that the masks are coming off, those diseases are increasing again, which is going to injure and kill again. Many of these respiratory diseases harm people of all ages, not just the elderly or the obese. For everyone's safety, the masks must go back on.

Without information, Bernard can only know certainly if his number is 5 or 6.

Albert knows Bernard doesn't know, which means his column does not include a ball in 5 or 6. Therfore delete columns A and B,and rows 5 and 6.

Now Bernard knows, which means that after the exclusions, his column has exactly one ball. Column 1 has two balls, so we exclude it from possible columns. We are now down to columns 2,3,4 and rows C, D.

Albert says he knows too. That means his row has exactly one ball, which is in C3.

So, except for the schizos, we all agree that exposure to the spike protein generates an immune response that, in the medium to long term, builds resistance to COVID?
And we're also in agreement that there are three variables in comparing exposure methods?
>How safe they are
>How much resistance they build
>How expensive/scarce/difficult to use they are
If we can agree on all of that, we can then start talking about the real question that matters:
What is the best vaccine?

Thank you for your input anon!
Concerning the part about mRNAs longevity, that's what I was thinking. I don't know our current technical capabilities but emulating a certain form of post-translational processing to limit the mRNAs lifespan might be possible.

About the immune reaction part:
This was based on the assumption that cells producing the protein would then present it on/in the cell membrane, which is what some people were saying. Following this assumption the immune reaction should be triggered with the various types of lecocytes producing antibodys to bind to the 'infected' cells and thus mark them for phagocytosis.
Anyway, regardless of wether the spike protein is released or bound to the cell, it should dtill be recognized as an antigen and thus be dealt with by the immune system. Considering this combined with the assumptions on mRNA lifespan I don't get why people claim the protein will accumulate in large quantities or other adverse reactions (e.g. the multiple threads on this topic).

I'm not going to bother to get a vaccine. All my life I've been pretty 'bluepilled', but this whole situation is very bizarre to me. Why is everyone responding so hysterically to such a undangerous disease? Why has the vaccine rolled out so quickly? Very weird.
Best case scenario is some agents come and kill me or something, little tired of life at this point anyway lol.

>but this whole situation is very bizarre to me. Why is everyone responding so hysterically to such a undangerous disease? Why has the vaccine rolled out so quickly?
Because things were politicised and opinions about different things get correlated which shouldn't be.

11 out of 2581 patients have asomnia or hyposomnia (6 have asomnia if I'm reading it correctly), so if your covid is bad enough to get you hospitalized you have a 0.43% chance of having asomnia/hyposomnia (0.23% chance of asomnia) which lasts at least six months.

they use new vaccines to strengthen the virus instead of letting herd immunity take place like it has for eons
