  1. Finally got round to using the Ignore button on certain posters and suddenly I have a  thread chock-full of nothing but sensible science and good advice. Nice  
  2.   I didn't. The link you posted - and obviously did not read - called it a vaccine.   You were the one effectively calling it a vaccine via the link you posted. Is that clear now?  
  3.   I think you cut & paste the wrong paragraph as the quote above doesn't define a vaccine.   However, a little further down on your link we find this:                 "An mRNA vaccine (or RNA vaccine) is a novel type of vaccine which is composed of the nucleic acid RNA, packaged within a vector such as lipid nanoparticles."   Hmmm... seems your own link defines the Covid-19 shot as a vaccine.   As you like definitions, here is one for you:                  Irony, noun: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often wryly amusing as a result.   You also seem to be misunderstanding what immunity means in a medical sense.. It's the ability of an organism to resist a particular infection. That doesn't necessarily mean you don't get infected and have some illness.
  4.   Psychosis following chloroquine ingestion https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24290896/   Conclusion: Considering the large number of patients still receiving chloroquine especially in developing countries, this study has been presented to draw attention of the psychiatrists and other health professionals to the hazardous effect of chloroquine on mental health.    
  5.   That's pretty much it, except the quote came from another, possibly less slanted, news source.   The original article focused on the fact that the vaccine has not totally eradicated infections: " If the goal is to prevent infection, the 95 percent COVID-19 vaccination rate on Cornell’s campus has not accomplished that. "   The article then went on to list the rare side effects of the vaccine, but carefully neglected to report  the fact that although infection rates were higher, the vaccine was successfully preventing bad or fatal cases which would have had a much higher risk factor than the quoted side effects.   At the end of the article, we find that: "The author of this piece has requested and been denied a religious exemption from Cornell’s vaccine mandate."  
  6. I made and ate a very nice pumpkin curry last night and this morning i do not have Covid. I can only conclude that my pumpkin curry is an effective protection against Covid and I shall be offering the recipe to Merck for a modest 8-figure sum. 
  7.     https://covid.cornell.edu/updates/20210827-ithaca-yellow-alert.cfm " While the number of cases is concerning, we want to emphasize that our system is working. Virtually all of our students are fully vaccinated; as such, it is the case that those who are infected will almost all be vaccinated. And as has been seen across the country, the vaccine is proving effective in preventing severe illness — the vast majority of our identified cases are asymptomatic or experiencing only mild symptoms and would likely not have been identified were it not for our extensive testing program.  "  
  8. Another difference is that Sweden is 10 million people living in 450,000 km2 and Israel is 9 million people living in 22,000 km2. Lots more social contact in Israel.   They're also not on the same timeline so comparing a moment in time is risky. After all, Sweden has had well14,000 deaths, Israel just over 7,000 in roughly similar-sized populations. That would sound like Israel is doing twice as well as Sweden up to now      
  9. Anti-vaccination people

  10. What made you laugh today?

      Maybe he took in a delivery for the neighbours and is taking it across now they're home...
  11. Worst jokes ever

    My dog can perform magic tricks.   He's a Labracadabrador.      
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

      I think the tops  hold monitoring equipment -GPS tracker, heart rate, etc - although I like the anti-nipple-chafing theory better  
  13. What's got you flummoxed today?

      I wish I had known.  I paid 12.99 for mine.
  14. What made you laugh today?

    The pedant in me wishes Question 1 was about Nelson rather than Napoleon (who didn't die in battle). :)
