Also, natural immunity is better than immunity to a single highly mutable
spike protein. So the overall risk to each person is highly
interdependent. It seems complicated.
Btw I am 30, not overweight but way less active and correctly dieting than
I should be; unvaxxed, got covid recently and it sucked (especially the
first day) but it wasn't so bad in the end, and was way less bad than when
I got a heavy case of strep. Max was 103 fever, no real respiratory
symptoms, no apparent long covid as of right now.
Btw spike as someone who seems to be aware of propaganda and cults of
personality, I'm a bit surprised at how hard you gobble Elon's cock. It's
one flawed man in control of the platform. He talks about free speech but
makes tons of decisions against it. His unvetted polls are laughable and
meaningless. Buying it was a huge loss for him and a definite show of a
lack of expertise and the fact that insecurity and the need to prove his
intelligence and coolness led him to a terrible decision for both his
finances and seemingly his mental well-being being.
He's better than someone like Jeff Bezos, I guess...honestly I'm not sure.
Bezos seems more straightforward with his Machiavellian nature. Elon wants
to be the cool guy and he's just not. The Chapelle thing was sad. It's
not 4D chess, it's a series of actual failures.
I appreciate space travel stuff, and Starlink is great. His cars are ok
but high speed trains would be a lot better. Tunnel company is vaporware.
Overall rank, B minus maybe? Not worthy of the blind adulation I think,
and I really mean blind, because I think you have to either subconsciously
or willingly ignore his vast flaws to talk about him the way you do. It's
very biased, and bias is the brother of mendacity.
