  • Not sure if this headache I have is a residual after effect from shot #2.

    Just when I think things are getting better (two straight days of <1000 daily cases), almost double the amount of cases yesterday. Sigh. I'd really like to see a full week of cases <1000.

      Huh. Hadn't thought of that, that's interesting. Gotta be flattening out though, right?

      I would think Germany would have it even worse, and France should have had something like that from WW1 (there's a reason they surrendered in WW2... there were out of guys).

      I guess both Germany (Turkey) and France (Algeria) were mitigated by immigration whereas nobody moves to Russia.

I have to think their whole exhausting culture of "no one leaves the office until the boss leaves" and post-work izakaya crawls by the men where a lot of the deals really get sealed, is pretty conducive to a lack of interest in sex.
        This is a few years old but it's nice summary based upon what I've learned from friends that have lived there recently.

        • I got Pfizer #2 this morning. Thus far, just like last time - a little bit of a sore arm, not much else.

            Maybe more Japanese people would want babies if their fetuses have a right to bear arms like they do here

              Good piece, thanks. Seems the concept of the "gig economy" is the same bullsh*t the world over.

                  Feel better!

                  Also, keep in mind that tests are up like 30-40% this week over last, as last week was school vacation week and a Boston area holiday. The positive rate is still dropping, I think. And hospitalizations continue to go down.

                        • Jfc it's bad

                          That evening, after calling dozens of hospitals, the family found a facility willing to admit Tiwari in a neighboring state, 60 miles away. Shantanu withdrew his fatherâ??s life savings to pay for the treatment and took his motherâ??s gold jewelry to sell in case more was needed.

                          He got his father into a taxi, but five minutes into the ride Tiwari started to have trouble breathing. They went directly to the nearest hospital. It was too late: Doctors came outside to see Tiwari and told Shantanu his father was dead.

                          At the first crematorium Shantanu tried, there were already 11 bodies in line before it opened early in the morning. He went to another larger one, hoping it would have more capacity. When he arrived there at 3 a.m., it was conducting a mass cremation of dozens of bodies that had arrived that day.

                            In better news, in MA things are rapidly trending positive (hey, vaccines work!). Hospitalizations are down substantially and if you look at positive cases week on week and there's a steady and substantial decline.

                              I suspect April vacation for public schools was a massive help.

They're already used to a sh*tty, insurance-driven model of healthcare where the wealthy get access to the best of everything. They still marry off their kids at 20. It's practically win-win.
