  • Why would anybody go to a packed venue -- a movie, a sporting event, a concert, a lecture -- in the middle of a highly transmissible, lethal virus pandemic?

    Seriously, what is wrong with people? I know we have been conditioned from birth to consume, but we have survival instincts that go back millions of years.

          I mean, at a certain point, you have to live life. To the extent this is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated, why should those of us who are vaccinated with boosters continue to hide in our homes? We're two years on, we've got the technology, those of us willing to use it should get to enjoy the benefits of having done so.

          I know that's not going to be a popular opinion on here, but my family didn't get the vaccines as soon as possible just so we could continue to sit at home indefinitely.

            The idea that we will risk death for entertainment is... well, I guess it's unsurprising.

              The point is that for the vaccinated, it's not really risking death absent extenuating circumstances. Even with omicron, having had the 3 shots is most likely going to keep you out of the hospital if you get it.

                That's great for people like you and I who find small talk to be onerous and trite, and most people to be boring and terrifyingly stupid. Not so great for the masses. A majority of humans need some degree of social interaction and leaving their home to remain in good mental health, even introverts.

                • Yeah what is the point of getting shots if we are just gonna sit around doing nothing? There is no logic in that.

                  • We're taking it a bit easy right now just because case loads are high and my sister in law is pregnant (and they've been trying for years), so we're being extra careful before the holidays. N95s everywhere and no large gatherings. We stopped using our hockey tickets at least until the new year and my in laws go into hard lockdown mode with the last month of pregnancy.

                      But we can interact. I have been to small gathering and small parties, and I work every day with people in an office.

                      We just can't jam in together like rats.

                      Everything in moderation. I can't wrap my brain around people who say "either I get everything I want, right now, in unlimited quantities, or I am being oppressed!" That's just being a Dumpy without the Dump.

                          We are prolonging the plague by continually recycling it and hosting it and giving it more warm bodies to mutate in, and eventually it will land on a variant that kills us.

                          If we had shut down 100% the first week it would have lasted less than a month.

                          • Kep,

                            Good for you that you can keep this up... Unfortunately, I, like many others, have really struggled with the isolation of the past two years. But I'm done sitting stuff out because others are morons...

                            Im going to take measures to protect myself. But at this point, Darwin is in control. The odds are in my favor when I specifically pick and choose my spots. I'm not doing this every day. But seeing Spider-Man: NWH yesterday in a full IMAX theatre with a raucous, involved crowd was something that I deeply missed. And also something that I needed.
                            It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

                              If that were the case I'd be right along side you. But the problem is the longer this runs the higher a price worthwhile people are paying. We are the ones paying for hospitals being overwhelmed, and our teachers being thrown into a viral pit with the children of the stupid.

                              If we didn't have to pay the price I would let the Dumpies run their body count as high as possible. But as always gorilla idiocy will cause problems for the human portion of the electorate. If you can find a way to pen them off so they don't affect us then yes, I will support your right to watch Ow My Balls from the live studio audience.

                                Rave? I didn't go to raves when I was of the proper age to do so ;^)

                                I have gotten 3 shots, my risk is quite minimal if I choose to go to a movie or a sporting event. (masked of course) My parents also have gotten 3 shots so their risk is minimal if I go and then see them. Same with girlfriends family. Same with the majority of my friends. I am not going to live my life fearing getting unvaxxed ****wits sick. I did my job, I made my sacrifices for society, time for me to live my life as I choose. If I get sick I should be ok.
