You Want Chips With That?

Yesterday.

It’s a win win.

Meanwhile…

While Krispy Kreme is offering free doughnuts to people who are vaccinated against Covid-19, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is betting dollars to those donuts.

The state will give away millions of dollars to vaccinated people and full scholarships to vaccinated children through special lotteries.

It’s just the latest and perhaps most extreme of efforts being made by governments, employers, sports teams and others to motivate more people to get vaccinated.

Others have tried free doughnuts, beers and gifts cards. Now, Ohio is betting millions to improve its vaccination rate (CNN)

    DeBlasio is a tool! At one point last year 2000 people per day were dying of covid in New York during March/ April, there are new studies showing that a huge percentage of the dead were over weight or ate junk food regularly. So promoting vaccination take up with free junk food as a reward is completely dumb and irresponsible. They should be giving free Gym memberships as reward, something helpful.

    We’ve become so used to seeing obese people that we forget that humans never evolved to look like that. Every single obese person is seriously ill, if they catch an infection, their immune systems are so compromised that to say the infection killed them is like saying it was the last donut that made them obese. Two medical scientists discussing the Sars02 “pandemic” noted that shutting all fast food restaurants would’ve been more effective than lockdown in reducing deaths. They then went to point out that anything less than 24 feet social distancing was a complete waste of time. It’s hard to treat the “vaccination program” as a serious medical effort when politicians who know treat it like the joke it clearly is.

      you do talk a lot of poop, but you’re right about obesity, bodies in crisis look normal to us, I’d say especially after lockdowns.

        No Janet, I know what I’m talking about, if that bothers you, it’s your problem. Would you care to point out one innaccurate thing I’ve said? You can’t. I know every single fact or figure I mention is simply the truth, I worked damn hard to be able to quote statistics & factual information about Virology. Stop aping the monkeys here who spend their entire time throwing their poopy-poops at other people & thinking that’s clever, you’re actually not as dumb as them.

          thanks for the compliment …I think….
          I actually enjoy your comments, but you have to admit you do go to town on the style occasionally, artistic license ?

          Most of what you said is inaccurate.
          a) Every single obese person is seriously ill,
          b) anything less than 24 feet social distancing was a complete waste of time.
          c) It’s hard to treat the “vaccination program” as a serious medical effort when politicians who know treat it like the joke it clearly is.

    We used to give a glass of Guinness to people who donated a pint of blood to the Transfusion Service. Up to the year 2009 I believe.

      We used to spray children with DDT, give Thalidomide to pregnant women, hell, I used to smoke. The stupid shit we did in the past doesn’t excuse the stupid stuff we’re currently engaged in. The history books will not record this era as a series of giant leaps for mankind but rather the beginning of the end of the post-war Western European experiment with Liberal Democracy. You’ll miss it, when it’s gone.

      Wasn’t that because there is iron in Guinness? And giving blood leaves you low in iron? Maybe I’m wrong on that one.

      Those were the days.
      Go to give blood, say you hadn’t eaten – and they gave you a sandwiches before. Give blood; get a free pint (2 if you asked nicely), and a woozy walk home.

      cheap night out!

        Many years ago I went to give blood – they said “sorry you’re only 17 we can’t take your blood but you can have a pint if you want since you bothered coming in”. So I got two pints and a bunch of sugary cake… good old days…
