    Thoughts while tipsy...why is Jack a nickname for John when they have the same number of letters?
    Yeah! I also don’t get Charles to Chas.

    And how do you get Dick from Richard? *snicker*

    how odd. I literally researched this two days ago because my kids asked the same thing.

    You know how people say “You’re either a Veronica or a Betty”?

    I think it can also be an Eeyore or a Pooh.

    It dates back to the 13th century. In medieval English, diminutives would form on some names by adding -kin to the end, a formation borrowed from Dutch. The medieval equivalent of 'John' was 'Jan', which became 'Jankin', then 'Jackin', and finally 'Jack'.

    The fact that twice when I have ordered take out in Toronto it came in styrofoam containers. It made me feel guilty. I haven’t seen one of those in years. Love everything else about my visit here.

    Why does Bobby Flay have like three (four?) cooking shows? The guy’s good, but this is overkill and makes me not like him.

    One of my favorite “Deep Thoughts” by Jack Handy. It went something like:

    “They should have crucified Jesus on a windmill. Then you get the pain and the dizziness”

    Loved those Jack Handy "Deep Thoughts" I always found to be very funny

    The Emmy awards is such bullshit. I’m not sure which is worse — that or the Oscars.

    These people celebrating themselves, everyone gather to idolize them! Don’t they realize this just makes their self-entitlement worse? Being surrounded by yes-men is so….unchallenging. Boring. 

    Oh, these “stars” 🙄 No one gives a shit about your message, your politics, whatever cause that platform provides because somehow, their opinions are so much more valid to us, the little people. 

    Yeah, I’m just a tad cynical about everything Hollywood ;)

    I don't see the problem here. it was proven safe for the general public. it decreased severe outcomes of covid significantly. whether it stopped transmission or not was secondary. I'm no scientist, but my guess is it most likely stopped many from being symptomatic, which therefore means fewer transmissions. 
    I think I'll move to Australia

    WTF are you surprised or angry about? This is not news. All you need to do is remember back to the original data set submitted for regulatory approval. Pfizer had data on reduction in infection, in severe outcomes and in deaths, plus safety data. They did not have data on effect on transmission nor did they make claims about effect on transmission.  The benefits of releasing the vaccines in terms of SAVING LIVES far outweighed the need to know the impact on transmission first. 

    And yet we knew the vaccines would reduce transmission because if you’re not infected you won’t transmit the virus. Data on transmission came later. 

    It’s so fucking infuriating when people still try to tear down what has been one of the most amazing scientific achievements of modern times and one that saved the lives of millions and millions of people.

    I see otherwise..they told us to be not selfish, and protect the others, elders,etc..

    yeah, it was to protect everyone, to try to achieve as close to herd immunity as possible. and I wouldn't call that a laugh. I call that a "this isn't news" and it's "inconsequential" kind of reaction to the question. this isn't the "bombshell" you think it is. it's nothing.

    Yes, it’s a big part of protecting others and not being selfish. And it worked remarkably well, when people listened, along with masks.
