I know that syringes looks like rockets, but why would they name their vaccines Sputnik? .. lol

And as for the QR code... thats why I don't bother with those on posters, etc. Always go to the source, no quick cuts.

True US death toll over 900,000, new IHME report says..............
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...-variants-fda-mask-california-nyc/4964560001/


The true death toll from COVID-19 across the nation is probably over 900,000, more than 50% higher than the most commonly used tallies, according to a new analysis by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

Data collected by Johns Hopkins University, based on deaths reported as COVID-related, put the U.S. death toll at about 580,000. The IHME data also puts the global death toll at 6.9 million, more than twice the Johns Hopkins number.

Thousands of people protested in Montreal recently to protest public health restrictions and now it may have turned into a super spreader event. :mad:

I really wish people wouldn't have the right to protest because it's always the innocent who suffer, at least during times like these when doing so puts the health and lives of others in danger. Unfortunately, that would be a topic for CT and I just don't have the energy to pursue it. I'm just so fed up with PEOPLE. :(

I fully understand the sentiment.
But the expression of that freedom, essentially, defines the attitude of a society. For better or for worse.

That element is a topic for CT.

I go in for my 13th (as I remember) MRI tomorrow and haven't been feeling so good about the future, in general, lately.

I had my first Pfizer vaccine this morning.
I go back in 3 weeks for the second dose.
So far, no side effects.

Even though I don't leave home often and come in contact with strangers, I haven't procrastinated on purpose.
There's been so much changing news about the vaccine that I decided to wait until things settled down.
Now that it has, I decided it was time to get vaccinated.
The pharmacy only a few blocks from my apartment complex recently started giving the vaccine, so I signed up.
