Addiction 2021.3

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

When the CDC came out and said that vaccinated people could skip the mask, mrs datlas took a brave step and went from two masks to one.

It's all about probability. Let's say you're 90% less likely to become infected if exposed to the same dose of virus, and 90% less likely to spread to others if infected. So, compared to someone unvaccinated in the same situation, your chances of becoming infected and spreading the infection would be 0.1 x 0.1, which means you're 100 times less likely to spread the disease, and the likelihood you'll spread it to someone vaccinated is another 10 times less. That's why CDC said vaxxed didn't need masks.

BUT it turns out the amount of virus of Delta-infected is 1000 times higher than earlier variants AND it's still high in asymptomatic, infected vaccinees. AND some places are full of idiots who are afraid of being magnetized or some damn thing,
so now we the vaccinate need to mask because of the idiots.

It might be cool to be magnetic, especially those magnets that attract brass keys like the lady I saw demonstrating on t.v. But I don't want Bill Gates to track me with his microchip.

I'm not so sure about that. A walk through Home Depot could kill you in a hurry.

And you'd have to avoid the locksmith shop.

In Mexico the 20 somethings went out after their parents got the jab. And proceeded to fill the hospitals,

Oh boy. I met the secretive DougRNS. I am only authorized to disclosed limited information, but he did give me a tyre and showed me Sharpsville cucumbers. He also lives in Cobb County, or at least he drives a auto registered there.

NCAA sports should be limited to things people do in everyday life.

Under that theory, our dog is not weird as I don't believe she asked for the doghouse. I'm sure she prefers to run naked and free, although she does prefer to be indoors rather than outdoors.
