Moderation rules are more lenient for this section, but try and play nicely.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. Good morning to everyone, except (checks notes) plague minimiser greywarbler.

    There is no SARS2 herd immunity – it is a lie. You and your family want to get repeatedly infected with a virus that has a superantigen and ability to disguise itself from immune system while vaccines rapidly wane? Good luck with that.

    “How Often Can You Be Infected With the Coronavirus?

    The spread of the Omicron variant has given scientists an unsettling answer: repeatedly, sometimes within months.”

    And where are those updated vaccines? From Eric Topol:

    “The Covid Capitulation
    As the virus accelerates its evolution, humans retrogress

    …The United States is now in the midst of a new wave related to Omicron variants BA.2 and BA.2.12.1 with over 90,000 confirmed new cases a day and a 20% increase in hospitalizations in the past 2 weeks…

    The real number of cases is likely at least 500,000 per day, far greater than any of the US prior waves except Omicron. The bunk that cases are not important is preposterous. They are infections that beget more cases, they beget Long Covid, they beget sickness, hospitalizations and deaths. They are also the underpinning of new variants…

    …It is further worth mentioning that the Omicron-specific booster vaccines in the hopper, thought to be due out in July, are BA.1 directed and may not provide strong protection against BA.2.12.1 or whatever new Omicron subvariant (or not Omicron related) we will be dealing with this summer…

    …Now we are seeing people with 4 shots who are getting breakthrough infections, even at 1-2 weeks from their most recent shot, when there should be the maximal level of neutralizing antibodies induced. That’s not a good sign…”

    About Eric Topol:

    “Eric Topol is the Founder and Director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, Professor of Molecular Medicine, and Executive Vice-President of Scripps Research.
    As a researcher, he has published over 1200 peer-reviewed articles, with more than 290,000 citations, elected to the National Academy of Medicine, and is one of the top 10 most cited researchers in medicine. His principal scientific focus has been on the genomic and digital tools to individualize medicine—and the power that brings to individuals to drive the future of medicine.”

  2. Helpless laugh for the day.

    Roger Douglas last words will be/were – I leave the country in good hands.

    The costs to upgrade the ship Te Mana, and before it Te Kaha, have blown out to between $600 million and $700m, due in part to project management mistakes.
    Main contractor Lockheed Martin Canada and a subcontractor are mired in a long running court battle.

    Six months in a Leaky Boat has deeper meanings down in Davy Jones graveyard where we are all headed. The Dingy Dhingy rides again – mixed metaphors but who cares when we are looking down a gun barrel?
