South African Covid variant appears to ‘obviate’ antibody drugs, Dr. Scott Gottlieb says
Dr. Scott Gottlieb warned that vaccinating Americans against Covid is more critical than ever, especially as the new South Africa variant appears to inhibit antibody drugs.


This will become the dominant strain probably everywhere. If you get it, and your illness is severe, there will be nothing they can do for you anymore. Just make you comfortable and hope you pull through.

Vaccination is the only way to ensure your survival.

Walz relaxing some restrictions. I expect we'll go back to the program we had at our gym. Wear a mask to get in, take it off once you're by the desk. It seemed dumb but whatever. I haven't been wearing a mask while running on the treadmill and I won't start now.

You know the one thing i do like about this scamdemic is how every other treadmill is blocked off.

I like my space when im running.

I swear, you can be on the treadmill, and theres like 20 open treadmills on each side of you, and some jerkoff will get on the treadmill next to you...................the one good thing about the scamdemic

I do too. I don't know if some people think they're running a race or what but it's just like back the hell off and let me have some space.

Gyms had already been open for a couple weeks now.

Do you actually go to a gym?

Its also taken care of the issue of dudes who like to stand around naked, one leg up on the bench, while talking to others.

Stepper or stepmill for me, those are a real workout. I got a gym quality stairmaster for free on Craigslist, it skipped but I fixed it with a 5 dollar chain, bingo $1000 machine.

Yes it is uncomfortable getting hit on by gay guys in the locker room especially naked. Happened to me in college. Not a big deal but I wasn't ready for it. In hindsight it's flattering. He was definitely on the tiny girly side so at least I didn't have worry about my safety.

I've never been hit on at the gym, just had to walk around the "conversation" to get to my locker many times. Never understood how that was 'normal'. Come to think of it, not sure a girl has ever hit on me either :cry:

They probably have you were just oblivious as most guys are, I know I am.

The gay guy made it obvious, follows me from Sauna, pees next to me, Im like ok thats wierd but there are only two urinals. Then follows me to the gang shower with literally 50 shower heads and starts showering right next to me, we are the only ones in there. And then starts asking me about working out....

I was so surprised it was just like uhhhhhhhh...


Back on topic, 4000 deaths yesterday, can we get to 5?

Impossible. Restaurants there have been open (and busy) since mid May, and kids are in school. Their case, hospitalization and death numbers have to be far worse than ours.
If Minnesota had allowed the same restaurant rules as Wisconsin has since May, and the result was a 10% higher number of hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and deaths ... would that have been a better outcome?

I would say that would be a worse outcome. I'm happy to sacrifice my indoor restaurant dining for a year, so that some people won't die.

All States are in the same boat. This is a poor attempt to explain away why they are ranked 35th in the US in % of shots received that have been given. MDH thinks we are all suckers, I guess.

I dumped her before she needed a new job. Now if Kayleigh was available.......
I have a feeling her 30 second "issue statement and run like a coward" press conference today was her last. She's available.
