Anyone else watch Seaspiracy on Netflix yet? Has me thinking Thanos had it right...

I haven't but I watched what the health and cowspiracy. My wife has been vegan for 3 years and my best friend for 5 years. I only eat chicken/seafood and only drink almond milk. Do you know how much of climate change can be contributed to the amount of meat we eat? It's mind blowing. They're constantly trying to make me switch.

I’m a fan of documentaries, so I’ll take recommendations. 
I’m currently laid up after neurosurgery last week and So far I’ve watched the one on Epstein, the college admission debacle, the the gymnastics one and I’ve got one more episode of the Jordan mini series. I’ve found all of them pretty good so far

I just finished Vikings and The Last Kingdom, both incredible shows would highly recommend. I am starting Peaky Blinders now. Any other shows you guys recommend? 

The Boys on Prime is the sh*t!  Karl Urban is the man!

Peaky Blinders is fantastic!

just started Last Kingdom...

HBO/Max- Chernobyl is a must watch mini series!

You mean with the vaccine correct?

Blood clots are fairly common, my gf almost lost her life at 26 from one that developed in her calf and traveled to her lungs.

 

The chances of developing DVT are about 1 in 1000 per year, although certain factors greatly increase this risk..

Yeah from the vaccine. That is crazy, is it from birth control? I know its a common side effect from it.

Yup most likely BW.. Doctors couldn't find any other reason..So obviously she got off the stuff.. Unfortunately damage has already been done as it stretched out her vein in her leg, one calf always looks swollen and pain comes and goes..She basically takes baby aspirin everyday to combat potentially another one..

Crazy, all this stuff we put into our bodies isn't good for us. I try to do as much natural as I can. My diet needs improvement too, but I like pizza too much.

Same here.  I'm so grateful that I don't have to take any meds right now.  Look how many of them get recalled.  My girlfriend's dad was on Metformin to treat his diabetes and now that apparently isn't safe to use.  

Hey, you can't beat a good pizza.  Have to treat yourself once in awhile.  I guess it's just a matter of portions and how frequently you indulge.

6 people out of 7,000,000 who received the J&J vaccine (so far) have developed these clots.  They're all women between the ages of 18-48 also, so it's entirely possible that there is another factor common among them at play.

Just rewatched GOT for the third time. That never gets old.

 Id say that Seaspiracy hit home with me because the animals arent farmed. Everytime I walk through a supermarket and see piles of fish and I wonder how can this be sustainable, how can the populations keep up with us fishing. I know that cow/pig/chicken etc isnt the best for the environment but at least I know they're being farmed for a purpose and I'm not driving them into extinction.

Just learned that my mom tested positive for Covid after she just got her first dose of the vaccine on Good Friday.  She started feeling lousy on Sunday afternoon and got tested this morning.  Her legs feel weak, can't taste anything, she's coughing a lot, etc.  The one bit of good news is that her temperature has gone down since yesterday.  It was as high as 100.9, now it's back in the normal range.  No breathing issues so far either, thank God.  She's turning 67 in May, no underlying health conditions.

She most likely got the virus before the vaccine was able to work. You can still get the virus but those symptoms seem a little high once vaccinated.

CDC finds less than 1 percent of fully vaccinated people got COVID-19

https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/548440-cdc-5800-breakthrough-covid-19-cases-documented-among-millions-who-are?fbclid=IwAR21_N3d8TElv223lvgeTrCWX1ZMr2MHp3wbe6_mxYj_AtyXyIh7g5ni6_s

1 percent of the people who contracted breakthrough infections died.

So, if you get the vaccine, that is a .00008% chance of dying from the virus if you get the vaccine. 12500 to 1

Vaccinate everyone in the country, the most number of deaths that would occur would be 26400 (assuming a population of 330 million and everyone receives still gets the virus, which is impossible but never mind)

In others words, significantly less than die in a typical flu season.

@Luke_Mages What were your first symptoms recently with covid? My wife and I have extreme chills this evening, can't breath without coughing, and a slight fever. We just got over a 16 day fight with flu/sinusitis. I had my shot on Saturday, but immunity takes 10-14 days. It can't be the shot because my wife didn't get it. Hopefully we feel better tomorrow.

Not a chance!  Gone through hell getting COVID, beating COVID, fully vaccinated and spent a night in the ER after second dose.  I am good...no booster...these are  “emergency” vaccines!  There has not been any long term studies so forget all that noise.

Clearly this is just my personal opinion and we all will do what’s best, problem is, nobody knows what’s best at this juncture.
