Let us know how you feel over the course of the next day or 2 ?

I'm getting my 2nd dose ... two weeks - 

I'm hearing wildly varying reports on side-effects ranging from nothing to an ER stint - no rhyme or reason or pattern discernible either.   It's been yes and no for maybe cases in every direction.  Zero pattern.

I guess scatter plot or not...the average is at least a semblance of reaction above zero - so... I'm just trying to get a fix on expectation - ha, not that your experience should tip the registry here... 

I didn't get any notice/report from the first dose, personally -

Just got my second yesterday morning. Mowed my entire almost 2 acre property afterwards, played bball with my kid yesterday evening. Woke up today, feel like I have a mild case of the flu. First shot gave me a pounding headache with a side of fatigue for a couple of days.

I have a family member, 60s that was recently really ill. Said person is one who believes that this virus is some government hoax, it's nothing more than getting a bad cold. Refused to be tested or even go to a doctor. Well, they became part of the 99% that made it. Just last week her doctor thought said she had lung cancer because she has been having issues breathing while doing everyday things. Turns out it's not cancer thankfully, but severe scaring in her lungs from a recent illness. But they survived, she may very well be like this the rest of her life and could knock an x - amount of years off of her life as well. 

These stories aren't rare, like some people want you to believe and that is not a MSM talking point, that is just the facts.

I don't fear Covid, like I don't fear driving to the grocery store, or even cooking chicken. But I always wear my seat belt and wash my hands after handling raw chicken. 

Some people act like wearing a mask while at the grocery store, during a pandemic, is equal to giving up a kidney to a stranger....

And i have heard stories alike and actually saw a video of a moose charging at the sleds, Hey its there woods, We're intruding....lol

i was in a group of sleds in a similar situation this past winter. Came up a trail and there were 3 moose standing in the trail. one bolted to the left (that one was a baby), the biggest one bolted to the right, and one stood her ground (the mom) on the right side of the trail. she didn’t like the fact that there were now several snowmobiles and humans between her and her baby. The guys in the front of the group had stopped and were yelling at all of us in the back to back up, as they started turning around. before they all got turned around, she moved across the trail over closer to where the baby was. I was the last person in the pack of 9 sleds and had  no idea what was going on up front, other than i could see. it was  pretty scary for those guys up front, but she never charged.

It happens more then anyone would think, A cow moose can get pretty aggressive if she has a calf around and feels threatened, They prefer to walk a nice groomed trail rather then be belly high in powder offtrail.

The illness ( covid ) is real..

The problem here is with the exact nature of the infection part of this infecting agent:   it not 'one size fits all'

Some die

Most don't

In between .. there is vast spectrum of just about anything imaginable as to what someone experiences... I've heard of brain damage even.  Jesus. Heart scarring this ...lung scarring that... black toes for f sake.  While for some... just a head-cold. For others it has mimicked Norwalk shitting... Of course...fever and fatigue may or may not accompany, or be the only thing -

It's not like BB plague or Ebola... or Norwalk ... These affect like 99% of population pretty much in the same identical way.  Everyone is visible stricken the same that gets them.

The uncertainty is lending to a lot of doubt mechanics frankly because it's not every identifiable ...and it is happening in an overall culture that is just as plagued with systemic/social distrust that is as virulent as the Pandemic itself.

Premium Rum is one of the few dark liquors that hasn’t gone through the roof yet.  You can still pick up bottles of 10 and 15 year-old rum small batch Caribbean Rums for under 50 bucks.

Now that you mentioned rum, May have to crack this open and try some.

People, especially older people, certainly need to take things seriously and be cautious. 

I am waiting to see the studies on the long-term impacts of COVID infection and the "long haul" phenomena, though. If this virus acts unlike other viruses we know about, that should be enough reason to be a little skeptical of the stories until we know more. The fact that people anecdotally report that in the long-term COVID caused everything from brain trauma to foot aches is another reason to wait for better studies to find real patterns. There are so many confounding variables that need to be considered. For example, the people reporting long term lung damage. Did they smoke? Did they have a concurrent bacterial infection in the lungs (very common with bad respiratory viruses). Was their diminished lung capacity actually measured or just self-reported?

This will be studied in the years to come.

Good afternoon SJWX, To me Tips posts are an anachronism, wrapped in reality/science, sprinkled with metaphysics to be read slowly and enjoyed, albeit carefully .... oh and sometimes it’s catching. As always ....

So basically the crypto market is being driven solely by Elon Musk tweets at this point? It certainly doesn't seem stable enough to be considered anything but outright gambling. 

It’s the wild wild west for sure, I only put small money in there.. maybe I make enough to make a car payment but I’m also ok with a shake shack burger.
