Speaking of, I get to find out in "24-96 hours" my results.

Mild cough, sore throat, and sinus issues started yesterday afternoon. Didn't go to work today since I slept like crap last night.

Fun stuff.

I am of the apparently unpopular opinion that if you manage to go your whole career without getting caught, they should destroy your samples and stop looking.

As they die off one-by-one from Covid, including people I know and that are in our community, I find it hard to be sympathetic. My wife tells me I'm a horrible person for being that way. I just think Darwin knew what he was talking about.

There's a yawning chasm between what it's like to get COVID for the vaccinated and unvaccinated, and now the unvaccinated are so completely filling the hospitals that people with OTHER problems, like, say a heart attack, are having to wait hours for care. So I think every excess death because someone who got vaxed and boosted couldn't get care when they needed it should be laid at the feet of the unvaxed. I cannot tell you how angry this all makes me. And masking? Yes, they should wear masks, because slowing down the wave makes it less likely the wave will swamp healthcare services.

And in any case, anti-vax and anti-mask people are all horrible, selfish s**theads who don't give a flying f*** about other people. T'hell wit' 'em.

If you want to see folks line up in droves for the vaccine, start denying hospital care for unvaxed Covid patients.

But they've got hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, viagra, and their own pee! They should be just fine!

Nice view of Los Angeles last night, taken from the field where my daughter's softball team was practicing.

Isn't that in violation of the Hypochondriatic Oath...or something like that?

Then they should be good without hospital care.

Mount Wilson Observatory? It was there before all the light pollution. Sits at about 5500 feet.
Here is a bit of the road near the top.

My pic is facing south among some lower-elevation foothills. The Mt. Wilson Observatory is north-east of where I was, on one of the taller mountains in the front range of the San Gabriel Mountain range. That pic is looking north(ish), away from the LA urban sprawl.

The FDA isn't contagious, but it sure allows the killing of our population. Their decisions influence much of our day to day life.

Today it wasn’t even that cold.

I had the same. It was 15º warmer than my last ride and my feet got cold. Both days were light wind and sunny but today, you could see the moisture in the air from the melting snow so I'm blaming the humidity factor.

You left out coffee enemas.

You do know that drugs were legal when cycling racing first started? So, that would be the 1903 TDF forward. :)

Question. If for your career that you have worked your whole life for required you to go to a doctor every 6 months for a check up in order to keep your job, would you be as willing to put a vaccine that didn’t go through all of the normal trials in your body? If you fail a check up you could never do your job again?


Disclosure I was vaccinated, but only becuase I didn’t want it to interfere with my new job.
