The Covid Booster Thread

Post by asthmatic camel »

The Covid booster jab is on my mind. The first two jabs didn't bother me at all but the booster made me feel fucking awful. My left arm aches like a bastard and my nose is running like a dripping tap. I'm not an anti-vaxxer by any means: those guys are responsible for millions of unnecessary deaths. Still, I feel like a bag of crap, which means it's working. 🙂

No Waze!!

I ain't getting that shit. I read on twitter that a friend of a poster was told by someone, that once went to a pharmacist for a packet of lockets, that it will turn you into a biscuit shitting lizard.

No fucker is putting lizard chemicals in my arm. No-one.

By "Covid Booster" do you mean the injection or support of the Covid virus for some nefarious end?

I just lost one of my oldest friends arguing about this on Facebook. He'd posted a two-hour bullshit documentary, partially in German, a language I don't speak, about the financial implications of the vaccines. When I need financial advice, which is never, I'll ask myself.

And, Doc, which stereo would you like me to upgrade? I have far too many and need to make some space. You may have one before I snuff it if you'll pay the postage...

Fortunately, Pyrrho posted an advertisement which will allow me to embark on a career repairing radios for very rich older men which I shall endeavor to do whilst properly attired in a suit and tie, myself, so I can accept even your early ones that you used to listen to the BBC update you on progress against "the Hun" in Ypres.

The hyphenated form, no-one, is especially common outside North America—it is almost completely absent from 21st -century U.S. and Canadian writing—but the unhyphenated form prevails everywhere by a significant margin. This is the case despite the fact that many English reference sources list the hyphenated form as the standard spelling or recommend it above the alternatives.

Perfectly acceptable.

Thanks.

Me am afraid you are Northern which, by historical precedent, means you do not understand such things. Owing to my charitable and humanitarian nature, me offer you some hearty southern patronisation.

I is a subject pronoun, and the subject is the person or thing doing the action as in "I went to the store." Me is an object pronoun, and the object is the person or thing the action happens to as in "Alex liked me." Use you and I when it is the subject of the sentence; use you and me when it is the object of the sentence.

For example:

The Sun shone on you and me.
You and I are pedantic assholes.

Now go and till the bottom field.

You remain incorrect. "You and I" would be correct usage in some cases. In this particular case it's "you and me".

You are confusing the subjective and the objective as was explained.

Nevermind. Here is a small pouch of monies, which I'm not going to give to you.

I'm not confusing anything, you daft twat. "The doctor gave you and me a vaccine" is correct. "The Doctor gave you and I a vaccine" is incorrect.

Now shut the fuck up: I'm always correct, you dumb arsehole.

That example is correct. Does not change my previously statement that you are confusing object with the subject. See my example.

Anyway you're right, no-one cares.

I stand corrected, Hotarubi. A capital D is indeed correct. ( I spilled a bottle of beer on my keyboard yesterday, so my speeling isn't too clever.)

In words of one syllable and with only a few sentences. Tell my why a booster in the firt place. Keep it simple.

If it is for the Delta Variant, note that the name is a reference to the sub-humanoids in Brave New World who might be expected to be convinced that it is dangerous.

Same as you might need a boost of any shot.

Hth.

See? One syllable. Hope you deal with that.

Funny, so the CDC apparently recommends boosters for everyone, including the the unborn prior to the second trimester, but the Local Authority that issues these things cites the CDC to claim I have none of the risk factors to justify getting a booster and will not, therefore, schedule one.

I am awesome, I know.

I will just go to the local chemist and buy some cyanide then go to a proper pharmacy and get the damn thing.

But you can sort of understand the confusion.

To decrease one's risk of dying. Hope that helps.
