Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

Is your card...same, similar, different. Anyone else? Here's mine.... My wife got hers at work and is the same but all the information has been hand-written and there is no bar code. Stickers were attached to mine. And BTW, it won't fit in a normal wallet without bending it so I won't be carrying i...

Re: Reducing 401k contributions now for tax flexibility later?

Any possibility of contributing to an HSA? I was never eligible for one, so never really looked into it until my wife's company started offering it this year. When I checked it out I thought what a great deal! You get the tax deferment of a 401k plus the tax exemption of a Roth as long as you spend ...

Re: Optimal Diet

My Dad put two spoonful's of sugar in every cup of coffee, Coca Cola was the beverage of choice with every meal, had desert, usually cake or pie, after most meals and then a bowl of ice cream before bed. He died at the age of 92 from "natural causes" but he did become obese a good number of years be...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I read that twice before realizing you didn’t mean more than 40 people. Fixed it. Florida has been vaccinating based on age and it's down to 40+ as of this week. So like I said, if the problem of vaccine leakage is real I would expect it to start showing up in the Florida data just as the article c...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

How's the experiment going? Not what one would hope, according to this http://dad29.blogspot.com/2021/03/problems-with-vax.html Basically this is saying, if I understand it correctly, the vaccinated are protected but they produce even more lethal and infections strains of the virus if they come in ...

Re: Colorado Grocery Store Mass Shooter

Are psychopaths considered "mentally ill"? Many of them function quite well in society with no one knowing or realizing that they are psychopaths. That's like the question of whether a tree falling in the woods makes a sound if nobody hears it. In a lot of these mass shooting cases there has been p...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I'm sympathetic to concerns about the long term safety of the COVID vaccines due to the way it was so quickly rolled out and the fact that there is so much propaganda and fake news nowadays that you can't trust anybody about anything. Having said that, I was thinking I would not get it but changed ...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I want that shingles vax. I think you used to have to be over 60 to get it but I think they might have changed that to 50. Technovelist said he got shingles from the vaccine which was actually a factor in me not getting it but I think newer vaccines don't actually contain the virus like they did wh...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

We were international travelers before COVID and are hoping to resume but I can't even imagine doing it wearing a mask. We have taken flights lasting as long as 30 hours overall so if you have to wear it in the airport and on the plane that's how long you would be required to have your mask on. I st...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

There is one benefit to wearing masks that I can think of, apart from keeping out COVID, of course.

You don't have to shave very well, if at all, before going to the store.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

For me, I don't think they do much, if anything, positive. Well then, why not wear one anyway if there is no harm to them? I think there is enormous psychological harm in physically reinforcing the mental state that we should live our lives in terror. I believe that just donning a mask every day ch...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

My guess is that the practice of public masking, defined as throwing one of those cheap cloth things on your face every time you go to a public place, has close to zero effect on the spread of the virus. What it does do is remind you every time you go out in public that there is a virus in the air a...
