Today could be the day I get COVID-19 and die.
But if it isn’t, it will be yet another day in which I ignored every single piece of medical advice handed out on “CNN Plus” and suffered no penalties as a result. Of course, the whole staff of Riverside Green is fully quad-boosted, but let’s just imagine for the sake of discussion that I never allowed Pfizer or Moderna to inject me with an experimental drug. The vast majority of my vaxxed co-workers have gotten COVID; a few of them have gotten it more than once. The more they get the vaxx, the more they seem to get COVID. Most of my triple-vaxxed friends have gotten it as well.
My son and I traveled across the country several times over the past few years. Other than skipping a few international flights because the borders were closed, I never stopped traveling; hell, I was literally staying in New York’s Chinatown when the first panicked “stay home” demands were made, and I’ve returned to NYC a few times since. I attended a zillion “super-spreader” events, stood in lift lines from West Virginia to NorCal. Never got it. My kid never got it. My wife never got it.
All of this, despite the fact that I am so susceptible to pneumonia that I have almost died from it twice. I once literally dragged myself out of a hospital against medical advice with nine fractured bones and a burned-out spleen just because I thought I was starting to get pneumonia symptoms. I am terrified of pneumonia and do not think I am in any way immune to diseases of any sort.
I’m not saying I’m smarter than anyone else. I am saying that the iceberg bulk of what has been said, written, and propagandized about COVID-19 is provably wrong. But why listen to me, when you could listen to an actual data scientist who thinks the same thing?
