A friend sent me this yesterday as a cheer me up, quite amusing, and pretty much sums it up lol.
I'm fully vaccinated and boosted.
No, I don't know "what's in it”. Neither this vaccine nor the ones I had as a child.
Nor do I know what's in the 11 secret herbs and spices at KFC.
I also don't know exactly what's in Ibuprofen or any other painkiller -- they just treat my headaches & my pains.
I don't know what's in tattoo ink, botox and fillers, or every ingredient in my soap, shampoo or deodorants.
I don’t know the long term effect of mobile phone use, or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at REALLY used clean foods and washed their hands.
There's a lot of things I don't know.
I do know one thing: life is short. Very short. And I, personally, still want to do things. I want to travel and hug people without fear, and find a little feeling of life "before".
Throughout my life I've been vaccinated against many diseases: Measles, mumps, rubella, polio, chickenpox, hepatitis, influenza, tetanus.
We trusted the science, and never had to suffer through or transmit any of those said diseases.
I'm vaccinated. Not because I’m a sheep, or to please the government.
Nor to make other people do it.
I'm vaccinated because I don't want to:
die from Covid-19
clutter a hospital bed if I get sick
not be able to hug my loved ones
not be able to travel & enjoy events
live my life in fear
I can't say it any clearer. I'm vaccinated for me. The rest of you can f*** off.
A decision on the top seed’s visa is expected to be announced today and his legal team would immediately go to court if his visa is cancelled again.
"Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.
“This decision followed orders by the Federal Circuit and Family Court on 10 January 2022, quashing a prior cancellation decision on procedural fairness grounds.
“In making this decision, I carefully considered information provided to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force and Mr Djokovic."
Talking to another mate about our mate with the stroke and he said he is laid up in iso in Melbourne with it. He and another bloke were riding down for the Australian Road Titles and stopped off in a couple of the Alpine regions and when he arrived at the motel for the Moto officials he tested positive. Thinks he picked it up at the last place they stayed, because there were a heap of youngins not bothering with masks. He said it felt like a really bad flu for about three days and then started easing off. He should be out on Tuesday but he's also very lucky it wasn't the first strain, because he has munted lungs that are slowly killing him.
