Zanjan: Careful, they said it was the pandemic of the century; that might jinx it.

One masked mother went on TV, saying it's too soon to lift Covid restrictions. She wants them to be kept in place until there's herd immunity......as if!

Where I live, most of us have our two shots but we'll never have herd immunity because the army of zombies refuse to get theirs. They're the hosts for the new variants. Thanks to them, Immunologists are already suggesting a third shot, soon as clinical trials are completed.

Yes, life is quite the risk. That why the wise don't build their houses on sand.

Zanjan: Doctors report those in hospitals sick with Covid are ALL un-vaccinated folks. Please do a thorough research.

Every country is working on getting their citizens vaccinated as supplies are made available. Sadly, government has had to entice some with raffle tickets or pay them to get their shot - the zombies are using extortion.

We've heard a few reports of some vaccinated who have contracted one of the new variants - while they don't end up in hospital, it means they can pass on the variant. Thus, the need for a booster shot. I expect to get one every year.

What do I suggest? Look on the bright side. Apparently, Covid was intended to kill off all the zombies. As Ghost suggested, it's just nature taking its course. There's bound to be collateral damage.

In Alabama, I was in the path of a big tornado but I prayed and it went roaring by me on the other side of the hill. Another time, a friend and I were charging down the highway, chasing a cluster of tornadoes headed to her house, which was full of dogs. We both prayed. When we arrived, all the houses around hers were bashed and flooded by the nearby creek but her house was ok and dogs were fine - only the tool shed moved 6 feet.

Zombies don't pray - they don't know how.

I hate the way some folks use tornado chasing for sport and don't think of the local people.

Zanjan: Ok, now read carefully. Those "vaccinated" folks who had gotten sick had not been isolating or following Covid restrictions - all of them had recently attended large, densely packed gatherings and events, contracting the virus within 14 days of vaccination.

So, they were vaccinated while already infected. Too late. The vaccine is a prophylactic, not a cure! This is why testing and contact tracing programs are so important.

The first vaccine shot needs a minimum of 4 weeks after injection to start taking effect; eventually, it will only give 50% protection. Doctors recommend at least 2 months between the first and second dose to ensure the first dose is fully metabolized. The second dose requires the same amount of time to increase efficacy to 95%.

Zanjan: Aside from the obvious pitfalls, one should be concerned for the children as they grow up - what are we teaching them?

I remember my first polio shot well. In those days, the school nurse kept all the children's vaccinations up to date right at school. I was about 7 years old and had thought I was going to get another jab with the needle; much to my delight, I was given a sugar cube soaked with bubblegum pink fluid, which pleased my mouth to no end.

Polio killed a few but anyone who survived was always left with some degree of permanent paralysis. There were no anti-vaxers then. While the vaccine was new, suspicion had to be put aside because nobody wanted to cripple their children.

Initially, we thought inoculation was good for life. However, those children who'd already contracted polio and survived discovered the virus stayed in their system until flaring up again as they reached 30ish. So, we learned we had to get booster shots every ten years. Boosters are injections.

Thanks to there being NO anti-vaxers, Polio has been eradicated from all continents except Asia. Afghanistan and Pakistan are the only two countries where it's still endemic. There, the problem is not anti-vaxers - it's getting the vaccine to the children in difficult terrain during war-like conditions. With mass migrations, it's nearly impossible to locate and reach the children.

My point is, anti-vaxers and effects of war are primarily responsible for perpetuating serious disease. When parents are teaching their children that obstinance is ok, they're placing their lives and grandchildren's lives in unnecessary danger.

Zanjan: Hmm....our tests are free. Everyone has government health care coverage.

During the wave periods, rapid testing was set up in community centers and in parking lots where you drive into a line and proceed to a station - the nurses would swab you as you sat in your car. No appointment required. There were also stations at airports, although most air travel was suspended.

Unfortunately, small towns didn't have that luxury. You had to drive to the city. The restrictions are lifted where I live so the government has dropped that program. Now, we just need proof of vaccination for certain things like air travel and major events.

No more people are showing up to be vaccinated - there's lots of vaccine left but that will soon expire. Such a waste! The government has said the anti-vaxers had their chance; the rest of us can return to normal.

ghostgeek: In 1931, Winston Churchill proclaimed that technology would one day allow humans to “escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium”. As recently as the late 90s, the remark could be cited as an example of the futility of futurology. But a rapid development of biotechnology and medical science is making cellular agriculture a reality. Stem cells, the basic building blocks of most organisms, were identified in the 60s. Growing in vitro muscle tissue became possible in the 70s, and the first peer-reviewed research on the possibility of in vitro meat production was published in 2005.

For a cutting-edge biotechnology, cellular agriculture is actually a fairly straightforward process. It begins with stem cells, usually harvested from live animals via biopsy. The cells are placed in a bioreactor – a temperature- and pressure-controlled aseptic steel vat filled with a nutrient-dense growth medium that is basically a broth of sugars and proteins. Under these conditions, the cells proliferate and differentiate to form tissue. Fresh from the bioreactor, you’ll have an edible, if not yet appetising substance called “wet mass”, which must then be processed in various ways to produce nuggets, ground beef and so on. Mimicking more complex cuts of meat – a filet mignon, say – requires additional techniques, such as growing muscle and fat cells on “scaffolds” made of a material such as collagen. It’s structural engineering, but at a microscopic level.
