Tritto. Be safe, y'all.
Over here, fucking Delta Variant has pushed the infections/100k over 7 previous days to ~140 for the last couple of days.
It was 3 on July 6 and 7th. Not "3.something". A solid 3, no somethings, for two consecutive days.
They are still/again debating making vaccines mandatory for everyone who can get it.
Frankly, that is not something I could tolerate. Because of our history, and that history being why patient consent
was formalized into legal principle in Nuremberg, in 1947.
I got pointed at the Nuremberg Code
by someone who also lamented "6,000 to 12,000 vaccine deaths"
. Scroll way down if you keep seeing that number yourself and you legit would like to know.
Some people, like certain medical professionals, must get certain vaccinations, always did. What with not killing immunosuppressed patients to death being kinda important.
Turns out you don't actually have to be smart to finish medical school.
Some people, like certain medical professionals, also refuse the 'rona jab. For the same bullshit reasons you hear from covidiots everywhere.
And some, obviously, make a racket of it. Going rate for a mask-exemption seems to be €50, or that's what some dermatologist working at a hospital was asking for, making an unprompted offer.
One step up form that, fake vaccination entry in the yellow WHO booklet. I'm conflicted what to feel about those.
On the one hand, the yellow booklet is an official document, important for international travel, it is not to be fucked with.
On the other hand, such fakes began surfacing before the vaccines had even begun shipping - so no little stickers off of the vial. Only handwriting in its place (and you know doctors' handwriting).
That is to say, these great artistes would create a forgery that wouldn't fool another forgery, when that other forgery isn't a forgery of a trained inspector of yellow booklets, but a forgery of a bus ticket. Weekend rate. That is wet.
I'm definitely certain the handwritten note wouldn't have fooled any pharmacists into handing over the digital vaccination certificate.
And that's not a funny. You get a printout of a QR code, one per jab. You scan those into your phone to show off when required, like a boarding pass.
Those QR codes are for 3G. I was shooting for 5G, but in a few places, they are already dialing it back to 2G. The idea being to do x, you need at least one G.
Genesen (recovered, like from the infection)
Geprüft (freshly tested, negative being implied).
Of course, masks are still mandated in most places they had been mandated over the last year.
In other news, Nena is a covidiot.
The G that is getting dropped is the testing, the quick testing specifically. Places that want at least one G, and with a lot of foot traffic, will have a testing station. Anyone can walk in and get their brain stabbed as often as they like.
That shit is both expensive (~€60/stab), and appears unreliable. Real world, they are getting something like 40% false readings from quick-tests
. Positive, negative, no matter when it's about as good as a coin flip (real coins don't do 50/50).
On top of it all, those test-centers are in many places run by private contractors. Obviously.
And look at that. At least one such contractor does hilarious little jokes. Like billing for two or three times as many tests as they are actually doing. Because private enterprise makes everything more cost efficient!
Some jurisdictions/locales, they are mandating 2,5G (we use a , to indicate the decimal, and I' m not translating!
). The quick-test is unacceptable, but the PCR, if it's fresh enough, is okay.
And unless a physician orders it, you can bet a PCR test is expensive and out of pocket.
Yes, 99 Red Balloons
She has spent the last few months publishing covidiot bullshit on her social media.
Like many, I had thought she was just trying to desperately claw herself some relevance, not quite drawing the crowds she used to when appearing at hardware-store openings and stuff.
She recently did an open-air concert. Part of the conditions the local authorities had put in place was that the audience had to be broken up in parties attending together, and each party would get a "box". Little rectangles, demarcated by stacked drinks-crates (soda, beer, it was not specified, but emptiness was implied). Effectively walled in, so no "Oh, I didn't even notice I crossed the line... and that I ran another 200 meters...".
Nena didn't like, and she told her audience to "break out of their cages" or some such bs, to "be free" and party with her. Right at the stage, all together. She said it explicitly, and repeatedly.
She had to repeat herself because her boyfriend/producer isn't quite as dense as she is and kept walking on stage, telling people about the conditions they had to meet, or they might get in trouble, the concert might be ended by the cops.
I think she finished her set, but no encore. The cops drew the line at an encore.
And just the other day, cops were called in about a rowdy party, maskless morons living it up.
Among known anti-vaxxers and Q-anon extremists, who did they find? Of course, Nena. Since it was a private event, on private property, just having the maskless party was no offense in that jurisdiction. But there is an investigation, ostensibly.
I'm pretty sure the latter is only because the covidiots and far-right Q-anon jackoffs didn't invite their BFFs from the local fuzz.
Pointing out that Nena is a covidiot naturally got me condemned as a "obedient little nazi". Yes, FB, obviously. Specifically by someone who had first asked me what's wrong with her being a covidiot, and upon my reply, had begun ranting, apropos of nothing, about how tens of thousands of unvaccinated mexicans were bringing the diseases over the southern border, and that requiring them to wear a mask or show ID was illegal, and so on.
The obvious crap from a humanitarian, on the hunt for "obedient little nazis".
That same conversation, I was informed about 6,000 to 12,000 vaccination deaths
that "the media" is hiding.
That number is from the CDC website, specifically from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, VAERS.
The deaths reported through VAERS recently were at 12,000. But then became 6,000.
Obviously, the morolatives* claim that deaths are being hidden ("only 6,000 deaths" is more conducive to the great conspiracy than 12,000 is beyond me).
According to politifact, meanwhile, whoever runs that website had accidentally put in the worldwide deaths reported through VAERS, when the website should have shown only US deaths.
Why is there even a worldwide number? Is VAERS a WHO thing?
No. But it is a thing where anyone can report "adverse events". Literally anyone. Me included.
Verification of credentials? Pathology reports? So much as a death certificate?
Nope. VAERS was created in the 1980s, when sending a fax cost real money, so false reports may have been unlikely.
But it seems to have been maintained by someone at least as morolative* as the covidiots who figure the vaccine makes them magnetic because it has "graphene oxide" in it (hint: even if the vial was full of magnetized graphene oxide - I'm pretty confident that the IRON IN THE HUMAN BLOODSTREAM will do more to make someone magnetic than a few CCs of that stuff).
So if someone throws those numbers at you, or that the CDC somehow halved the death toll, etc., etc., you can tell them to shut up, because citing Wikiconservapedia in a scientific paper is more solid than citing VAERS.
That whole conversation about Nena was in a group dedicated to "Atompunk", and I guess someone thought a 1980s pop-star who's great hit was about nuclear armageddon was an appropriate topic of discussion.
Obviously, some rationals pointed out that 99 Red Balloons was a typical example of 1980s neo-marxism. And when challenged, wouldn't justify that description, as usual.
I wasn't the only one to point out that she's a covidiot these days (it's a large group), and I guess the massive flame-war that errupted between covidiots and persons living in reality is what got the whole business deleted by admins.
The numbsicle who had lamented the 6,000 to 12,000 deaths had also informed me that he personally knew two people who got the 'rona after having been vaccinated, one of whom a US Marine who swore that "HCQ saved his life". Turns out some of those morolatives* still haven't graduated to Invermectin.
Oh, and it's all a big conspiracy - Fauci himself had published a paper, showing that most Spanish Flu deaths were actually from bacterial pneumonia - and they tested masks after children wore them for a day. Full of bacteria! They want to murder by mask!!
There is so much wrong with this bullshit...
I had thought that, once enough people had gotten the jab, once even one particularly obstinate person I know had gotten the jab, sanity might break out. Or the morolatives* would at least find other fairytales to make themselves feel embiggened.
Yes, yes, foolish, foolish. I keep trying to loose all faith in humanity, but I just can't. Maybe it's the brain-damage, scar-tissue in the cynicism-area of the frontal lobe?
*I wanna test drive this, nothing about relatives. I'm thinking something along the lines of "superlative" or "hyperlative". But rather than indicating bigger or biggest, it should indicated "willfully dumber" or "willfully dumbest". In this specific case, I think "willfully dumber" should apply.
, you're our cunning linguist. Suggestions?
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?
I said I have a big stick.
