I believe he was speaking to the freedom to practice ones religion which is granted in the 1st amendment.
Yeah, i gathered. It was a super cool maneuver in 8th grade debate team.

I think you, pfidc, can worship god freely and Shyster can worship his gun rack or sumo wrestler thong collection or whatever. Your worship is yours. But during a global pandemic, where you do the worship is a thing to think about imo.

Random trivia: The loincloths worn by sumo wrestlers (called mawashi) are never washed. They just brush off any sand and hang them up to air out. When they eventually get too funky to wear any more, they just throw them out and get a new one.

Ah, shmenguin...another in a long line of "think of the children" folks who are suddenly so compassionate once the children have become a useful prop. Bravo, hero, have a seat next to Freddy and commiserate over your single mind.

Yeah it’s more like I have kids, so I tend to put them in the forefront.

Parenting stuff. Try to not vomit.

I amenable to just ending procreation and riding it out into the sunset, but I’m not really in a position to do that now.

shmenguin vs. masks. The fight continues
The lefty T-shirt that says “science is real” isn’t just to be used when it’s convenient.
:lol: You conveniently discovered that t-shirt around the same time you were vaccinated and seemed to stop caring about unvaccinated folks. We're at the finish line. What's the rush?

By the way, my guess is most schools will have mask requirements until 2022. Maybe after the return from Christmas break the mask mandate will be lifted, but it's not like Sept 1 FDA approves Pfizer for all ages then Sept 2 we drop requirements in schools. That seems silly. And the argument that kids brains are being messed with because they have to "interpret facial expressions using 33% of the canvas" is grunthy level bad.
Your date when masks will be lifted from the schools is my guess as well. If all is going well, I would think after Xmas break they'd be free again. We're getting there. Let's do it right (or as right as we can).
Around here in a place where Shmenguin would probably die from cooties there is serious talk that masks won't be a thing when they go back to school in August.

I’d like to buy a ticket to shmenguin vs dodint on an argument about children (the particular argument doesn’t matter)

I'm not interested. Unless you can frame it so "think of the children" helps both sides, then it might get interesting.

Thing is, I really enjoy shmenguin, but boy was playing the children card super, duper lazy. I wasn't mad, just disappointed.

Pfizer question: for those that had symptoms after the first shot, was the second better or worse?

I mean worse, as it technically should be.

First shot: 2-3 hour headache
Second Shot: 1-2 hour headache, 1 day of aches

Returned to normal 12-24 hours after second shot, like nothing ever happened.

I had no symptoms other than injection site pain for either.

Pfizer here as well..

1st shot: nothing but minor tenderness at injection site for a few hours.
2nd shot: Arm sore after short... and was really tired the day of and the first few hours the next day. Once I got past the 24-30 hour mark though I was pretty much feeling good again.

No headaches, fever or anything like that with either shot.

Can anyone give the numerical analysis for how many more Pennsylvanians need to get a shot before we reach 70%? As in, how many more people need to get at least a first shot to get to that point?

I was thinking more about this 70% thing. How is it fair that Allegheny County/Philly are tied to a statewide number? Allegheny Co. hit 70% with at least one shot yesterday. @AuthorTony's friends aren't going to allow us to meet a 70% state-wide number any time soon.

I have a feeling that come middle of summer the administration is going to realize that the dangling the carrot of no masks isn't going to be enough to get the whole state to 70%.

if you don't want the vax today, you aren't gonna want it when no one is dying from it anymore and everything is opened up again. there are people willing to roll the dice, and they're going to feel more and more emboldened to do so as time passes. i feel like this is already a lost war.

I actually feel less inclined to have a vax card now. Just open it up and let the virus sort em out.

OK since no one can give an answer beyond the stock "hicks are stupid" I crunched some numbers.

We need 7 million Pennsylvanians (give or take) to get to 70%. There are 67 counties.

Biden won 13 counties in PA. Based on my rough estimate, there are 5.5 million adults in these counties. He won 13 of the 22 most populous counties in the state. Assuming that our science trusting, biden voting counties get an 80% success rate, that means 4.4 million vaccinated people. That means we need 2.6 million science hating, trump loving, angry facebook posting people in Trump counties to get the shot. By my count, there are 4.5 adults in trump voting counties. so that means they need like a 57% success rate in Trump counties to get a shot.

Pfizer question: for those that had symptoms after the first shot, was the second better or worse?
Pfirst shot: Mild injection site tenderness (honestly, not even worth mentioning)
Second shot: The day after, I was clinically dead for approximately 24 hours, but I got better (even today, 2 weeks on, I feel soreness at the injection site if I press on it)

Mrs Tif
Pfirst shot: Nothing
Second shot: Nothing
