My daughter's school has a huge class trip planned for the spring, It's something they do every year, and you have different options to choose from. You don't have to travel, some are local. Well my daughter has chosen a very cool trip where they go to the Caribbean and learn how to sail a tall ship.

Anyway, there is a planning call last night. The policy is you must be vaccinated to go. No exceptions. One father gets on the zoom call, starts asking about his daughter. Heart condition since birth, can't take the vaccine. She really wants to go and is devastated. At this point, I have some sympathy for him.

But then he doesn't stop talking. The entire call ends up being about his daughter. Starts mentioning how all we know about the "pros and the cons" of the vaccine. I learn later the fanily has been quite vocal in their anti vaccination opinions. The gear grinders from this are just overflowing:

The selfishness and sense of entitlement. How unfair it is for their daughter, without thinking about the others she will be living with in close quarters for an extended period.
I am just going to go ahead and be a jerk and assume the health condition is bogus. The daughter seems to imply it is. The nerve to lie about something like that. Apparently every single person in theri family has a unique health condition.
Why are so many people with these unique health conditions seemingly the ones who are anti vax?
If your health is jeopardized by the vaccine, aren't you even more worried about getting Covid? Won't that be worse?

Look I get that there are truly legitimate health reasons not to get vaccinated. And I'm not speaking about people with those conditions. That's a tough spot and it's the reason why everyone else should be getting vaccinated.

But for these other people that are making up medical reasons, I have utter contempt. If you don't think the vaccine is a good idea, own it.

Because a lot of these "unique" conditions are diagnosed by "alternative health practitioners" who are not science-based to begin with.

He was charged a year ago; he was convicted. This is my favourite part.

An anti-vaxxer who attended a ‘COVID-19 party’ seemingly in a bid to catch the virus has died.

The 55-year-old man, who hasn’t been identified, passed away in Austria last week after attending a so-called coronavirus party in the city of Bolzano in South Tyrol, northern Italy.

Three more people have also been taken to hospital and diagnosed with COVID after attending similar events in the region. There’s also been reports of parents taking their children to parties in order to infect them with the virus to build up immunity, with one child said to be hospitalised as a result.

An old YouTuber friend of mine has been doing a series called "Meet the Victims," a series on anti-vaxxers who then died of Covid. Its enjoyable, and yes I know, laughing at dead people is bad, but these people are (were) awful.

Luciferase is probably what Aaron Rodgers figured he was allergic to.

And yes I know it's not actually in the vaccine

I don't understand all of this "tracker" stuff. We all willingly carry and use devices every day that track our movement and behaviours.

I'm curious what is in it for them if they identify generic drugs that work?
