  1. Trolling is somewhat a matter of perspective. I was accused of trolling while only seeking insight.

  3. Yesterday I got my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, three weeks and one day after the first dose. Again the only after effect (so far) being some soreness in the upper arm where the vaccine was injected.

  5. I will be getting my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Tuesday. I think you have to wait two weeks for the second shot. I will ask the pharmacist.
  6. And now it looks like I will get a vaccination soon: David Muir says the FDA has approved the Pfizer vaccine for those age 12 to 15. I will be 15 in 16 days.
  7. My parents both got the Johnson and Johnson vaccine a little over a week before the story about blood clots broke. It has been 5 weeks since their injections and neither has shown any ill effects.
  8. You are really saying that all is imaginary. I tend to think that psychedelics are simply causing your brain to internally produce things that are not really there.
  9. Life pretty much sucks no matter who you are.

  11. I have heard some claim that it is possible to get all the vitamins needed through diet and use of multivitamins can result in an excess: more vitamins then the body needs or can absorb and so turn toxic in the kidneys - the function of the kidneys being to remove toxins from the blood, thus the kidneys become overworked and in time will fail.
  12. "Conservative talk radio does not sound very nice." No it doesn't. I suppose I should have said appealing or good sounding. Examples of what I am talking about would be Thomas Sowell claiming 'it amazes me that it is considered greed to want to keep your money but not greed for the government to take your money.' At the surface level that sounds just. However roads, bridges, fire and police protection, military defense all cost money. Expecting to have all of them without paying anything for them is indeed greed. Rush Limbaugh defended Reagan's tax policies by pointing out that when Reagan took office the top 1% of earners paid about 18% of total tax revenues but by the time Reagan was leaving office the top 1% were paying a little over 20% of total revenus. At surface level that sounds like Reagan was fair to all and didn't favor the wealthiest. But with a little thought you realize that it means the exact opposite. If you have A x B = C and B decreases considerably yet C increases it means A shot through the roof. Reagan reduced B, the tax rate on the wealthiest 1% from a maximum of 70% down to a maximum of 28% yet C, the taxes paid by the wealthiest 1% as a percentage of total revenues increased. The obvious explanation being that A, the incomes of the wealthiest 1% shot through the roof while the incomes of the rest stagnated or even declined. Conservative rhetoric consists almost entirely of such half truths and speciousness.
