Indeed. Some of it was posted.

Over the past year (plus) I've had so many colleagues I have had to stop the conversation when it swayed into covid territory. I am surprised and somewhat disturbed by how many have gone to the dark side on this. They are all smart capable people that I have enjoyed working with, and suddenly I discover they have a hole in their mind on this subject. Some are more evangelical than others, and really want to engage me. With one exception, I've been able to back out politely and diplomatically. I had to use the nuclear option on the one: stop work, bill for my time, and not reschedule. I would love for all this to be over. It seems fairly permanent now.

The United States might need to update its Covid-19 vaccines each year, according to a trio of top US Food and Drug Administration officials, and “a new normal” may include an annual Covid-19 vaccine alongside a seasonal flu shot.

Ancient mystery solved! (For me at least)

I tried Diet Coke with coffee creamer, a popular drink in Utah...
Up until recently, I had no idea just how popular diet coke with mix-ins was in Utah. While scrolling on TikTok I came across a video by user @toponlinefinds, who has over 2.4 million followers, replying to a comment left by someone confused that she'd put coffee creamer in her Diet Coke in another video she uploaded on January 20.

"People were so confused, and it was so shocking to me," the user, who doesn't use her name on TikTok, says in the clip uploaded on January 28 that has since amassed over 627,000 views. "If you're from Utah, or have visited Utah, it's as common as drinking water there." They did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
I was always mystified why the poots wanted creamer.
ETA wrong forum, I wanted Bundy 411. Still, a poot's a poot. Any poot in a storm...

Kari Lake is having a "1776 party" in Lake Havasu, AZ tonight. Imma have to figure out what that is.

Assuming he's on the level and not full of crap, there is no way he didn't know that there was a vax restriction when he bought those tickets. Ticket vendors have been dealing with this for a long time now and make clear any restrictions at the time of purchase to avoid angry customers. Also, why not resale? Just to be a knob? Goal achieved!

A Kari Lake supporter who recently visited Mar-a-Lago burned his family’s Olivia Rodrigo concert tickets worth $3,500 due to the performer’s vaccine requirement.

Winners -

Olivia Rodrigo - still has the money from the ticket sale
Concert venue - still has the money from the ticket sale
Concert attendees - more breathing room

Losers -

The original ticket buyer who is out $3,500.


I dunno - did that ticket holder get $3,500 worth of satisfaction from destroying those tickets? Apparently he has more cents than sense.

Those looked like print-outs of tickets, which means they could still get a refund or print new tickets. Performance art only.

Definitely performance art. Nobody buys tickets at the door. It's all online. He just has to request the refund before the defined time limit, and he may have to forfeit a bit. It's all described in the contract he checked OK to at the time of purchase.

For refusing to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, three US air force academy cadets won’t be commissioned as military officers, though they will receive college degrees, a spokesperson for the school said Saturday.

Academy spokesperson Dean Miller said in a statement that the three cadets in question won’t be commissioned as air force officers “as long as they remain unvaccinated,” though they would get their bachelor’s of science degrees. The military branch had not decided yet whether to require the trio to reimburse the US for education costs in lieu of service, Miller said.

A fourth cadet who had initially turned down the shot providing protection against Covid-19 ultimately got vaccinated and would graduate with an officer’s commission, Miller added.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2 ... gs-staley/
In March and April of 2020, as the coronavirus spread and people isolated in their homes, a doctor in San Diego boasted that he had his hands on a “miracle cure,” according to prosecutors — hydroxychloroquine.

In mass-marketing emails from his business, Skinny Beach Med Spa, Jennings Ryan Staley said the drug was included in his coronavirus “treatment kits,” despite the medication becoming increasingly scarce. But Staley had a way of getting it, he later told an undercover federal agent. He planned to smuggle in a barrel of hydroxychloroquine powder with the help of a Chinese supplier, prosecutors said.

Staley was sentenced last week to 30 days in prison and a year of home confinement for the scheme. He pleaded guilty last year.

“At the height of the pandemic, before vaccines were available, this doctor sought to profit from patients’ fears,” U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman said in a news release. “He abused his position of trust and undermined the integrity of the entire medical profession.”

A failed South Australian Senate candidate and anti-vaccine protester has pleaded not guilty to assaulting a police officer outside an Adelaide pub.

Key points:
Raina Cruise is accused of assaulting a female police officer
A video tendered in court shows an argument with police and the alleged assault
Her party's website says she regularly attended anti-vaccine rallies
Raina Jane Cruise, 38, appeared in the Adelaide Magistrates Court today charged with assault, before her lawyer entered not guilty pleas on her behalf.

She has been committed to stand trial in the District Court.

During an earlier appearance, police body-worn camera footage was released by the court showing an altercation between Ms Cruise, her co-accused Matthew Stephen Priest and police in October 2021.

snip

Her party received 2,248 votes.

{which is about how many you would expect to get through donkey votes}

re fake covid vaccine pass for the EU (includes Ireland) and some other associated European countries:

Willl totally fail cause the real thing is only available to residents and managed thru online databases with online verification when needed. The European authorities take a dim view if anyone would present a fake certificate and some local forgers have been sent to court. The perpetrators i know of were staff that had been tasked with data entry and thaught they could make a fast buck aside. Buyers of fake certificates were identified thru the data entry log files related to the fraudulent workers, the certificates were cacelled and authorities made visits...

Fake European certificates are esentially worthless outside the EU, and when presented at immigration at the border of certain cooperating third countries will result in some bad awakening.

There is something amusing about people spending money to avoid getting a free service that would benefit them.

If they get sick, I'm not going to weep.
