I think the idea of exposure and immunity sound fantastic in theory but it's also just as difficult for me to believe that to be true.
Everyone: get your flu shot. Even if it doesn't offer full protection, it reduces the severity of illness.

I was discussing this earlier, but Worldomoters, John Hopkins, and Covidly all have different numbers than Missouri's "official" total. I don't know how long there has been a discrepancy, but I'm assuming it has been there for a while. I only noticed it yesterday.

This.

I wasn't advocating that people should avoid the flu shot, just that I've never needed it personally.

Also, immediate family members always seem to get sick after the shot, so that's not very encouraging, either.

I have never had a flu shot. But I remember when I was a kid I was getting all kinds of shots in school. They had the air gun back then too. And I had the TB prick. They still do that with kids? Or do they go to the doctor for that shit?

Bottom line I got the flu once (10 years ago) from a 5 year old kid lol it kicked my ass for almost a month. And I lost 20lbs

agreed. Everyone should get the flu shot as a preventive measure.

complete destruction of civilization? I’m thinking there is some solution between what we are doing and that hyperbole remark.

I don't want to sound like a broken record, but I know you old farts like to BBQ.

Two more cow kill plants, think hamburger, announced short term closures today and two more regular plants have so many people calling in sick they will likely do the same soon.

If taking a three day break and testing doesn't slow it down they're considering a two week shutdown. They are not releasing current bids on fats at all, which tells me they are cleaning up inventory and preparing for the worst. That might be significant in parts of the midwest as there is generally not enough in cold storage to bridge that gap.

Gosh, if only there were some mechanism in society to advocate and mediate differences such as this. . . .

You started to make a sane statement, then embedded a tweet implying that anybody who tries to earn a living for their family has reckless disregard for the lives of others.
