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

I often wonder how many times I likely would have tested positive even though I've had all the shots.

I wonder if they would go ahead and give me a booster even though I've still got 7 weeks or so 'til it'll be 6 months after my second dose.

She also wasn't wearing a mask for shot #2. But that was the era when they were all like "Oh, you got vaxxed, you can resume having your orgies now, masks optional"

There are millions of people in Africa who haven't even got one dose, and you want to cut in line for #3.

Shame.

In regard to Africa, I dunno if it really makes much difference if I get it now or 7 weeks from now.

As many have said, if it doesn’t fall apart the moment it crosses the finish line, it’s overbuilt.
