  1. In regard to the question in the thread title, no, I don't think this was the fix we all hoped for. I'm in no way mad by the results of what the shot achieved, especially being developed and deployed so quickly. But I can put myself in other people's shoes and understand the hesitancy. The term "vaccine" in my head growing up meant you got a few shots and you didn't get the illness that it protected against. The Covid vaccine was definitely presented as "get this shot and we can all get back to normal". Did they know the efficacy would wane after a few months? That info definitely wasn't out there at the start. I mean I understand if they didn't know. This shit is all new. But now it gives that whole other crowd of people the ammo they need to feel like they don't need the shot, "since it doesn't work". Then you have the whole crowd of people who have had Covid and are unsure if they should still get the vaccine. The CDC says yes, but within a minute or two of googling I end up here: https://wexnermedical.osu.edu/blog/covid-19-vaccine-after-having-covid-19 COVID-19 vaccination may not be needed after a moderate or severe COVID-19 infection "If you’ve had a moderate or severe case of COVID-19 and are not vaccinated for COVID-19, current data tells us that you may have strong and durable enough immunity to protect you from reinfection without getting a COVID-19 vaccine." Another thing I've heard is maybe people would only need one Covid shot if they've just recovered from Covid. The natural immunity mixed with the shot immunity could be better protection. Just too many uncertainties for the millions of stubborn people out there. I got my 2nd shot in July. I'm not sure if I'm going to rush out and get a booster in a few months. Things might be more different than anyways. Just taking it one month at a time.
  2. Just finished watching it. Definitly agree with what @johnnysaid but it was still a fun ride. The end left me with a lot of questions until I looked it up and there is still a movie after this (Halloween Ends). So we'll have to wait until next year to see how it wraps up.
  3. Thanks for mentioning this! I have Peacock but haven't used it lately and had no idea.
  4. I haven't seen that movie since it came out. I've kind of wanted to go back and watch it but am unsure. I still remember coming out of the theater thinking it was pushing the limits for me. Very brutal.
  5. Can't say much that hasn't already been said. I was excited to watch but then the gay/transgender bit pretty much turned into the whole show and fell flat. Definitely not funny or creative enough to carry the show.
  6. Stories like these just boggle my mind. So much wasted time and effort. I understand some residents or the association may not want to see old crappy shoes laying out in the hall. A simple fix could be requiring the guy to pay for some sort of small metal box/cabinet that he could store his shoes in outside his door. It would be out of sight. He's got a medical excuse. They have decided its a better option to turn this situation into a years long legal battle at the cost of all of the other tenants in the building...
  7. At the Florida airport we were in, there was a police officer riding around on a Segway. He found some guy sitting with his mask around his neck and yelled out from about 50ft away "Sir! Mask up!".
  8. MicroClimate MICROCLIMATE.COM AIR™ is a new wearable that creates a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for the individual. The device also protects surrounding bystanders from the person wearing... Air2 for max protection. Plus you can pretend you're going for a space walk.
  9. I think I'll definitely check out the first 3 soon. The wife and I are finishing up all the Nightmare on Elm St movies right now (man did those take a dive after the first 3 ). I noticed the 8th movie- Hellraiser: Hellworld stars renowned gamer Henry Cavill. Description sounds pretty garbage. "Gamers who participate in an online role-playing game (MMORPG) are invited to a rave whose host plans to show them all the truth behind the Cenobite mythos." Maybe watch the first 3 and then throw that in for a laugh.
  10. I noticed a lot of signs are disappearing in my area from store fronts about wearing masks. The only signs I do still see say "masks recommended" or "masks required for any unvaccinated person". But otherwise the grocery stores are filled with mask-less people. I didn't know if any rules changed or if businesses are just tired of trying to enforce it. About a month and a half ago we visited my wife's cousin in Boca Raton, FL for a week. We went to a lot of places and did a lot of activities wearing masks indoors. Her cousin said people laugh about masks in Florida and nobody wears them. We survived 4 flights total, along with a 4 hour layover. Ate at a shitty airport restaurant. Nobody got sick. I will say, when you spend over 4 hours in an airport you realize how fucking gross people are. My son was nervous about flying so we made multiple extra bathroom trips. Visited the restroom 6 times because of his uncertainty in that 4 hour period. I feel like I saw at least half of the people who came in not wash their hands afterwards. People leaving stalls and heading right out of the door. Or the people coughing all over the place or blowing their nose in front of the mirror. No hand washing afterwards. Thought for sure I was going to get sick after vacation but nobody even had a sniffle.
  11. Are the Hellraiser movies worth watching now? Never saw any of them. Before googling, I would have said there were 3 Hellraiser movies. Little did I know there were 10
  12. Things you take for granted when everything is working normal. Years ago I used to love tinkering with everything. Now I dread most of it. Just don't have the time. Like your situation, it ends up becoming half a day project.
  13. I'm in the camp that believes these ridiculous prices are just cover for money laundering. The art is getting shittier because anything can be art, why bother putting any effort into it?
  14. This has been a damn busy Monday so far. We got this, the Facebook shit, and the island of South Dakota and its billions of dollars. Any natural disasters hitting too?
  15. Part of me wants to read through all of this because I find it so fascinating and slightly infuriating that people are getting away with this. Then the other part of me is like why bother. What would really change?
  16. My wife has a friend whose whole household has a ridiculous cold. Husband, wife, 3 kids all have it. Been 2 weeks and they are finally improving, still coughing stuff up though. They got Covid tested twice and still negative. Hope you get better sooner rather than later.
  17. Yeah what the hell is up with trailers these days? Are people really out there saying they want the entire storyline in the previews nowadays? I watched the Halloween Kills trailer a while back and felt like I saw the whole movie. It's gross.
  18. I can see people buying the N64 controller. But $50 for a Sega Genesis controller? Ehhh... no thanks.
