    We can only hope. Because he is going off the rails even more and seems to pulling out all the stops. Like taking out the Post Office for mail in ballots (or because he hates Bezos or both)? He has too many months left and he will tear it all down like the toddler he is. Sorry, unfair to toddlers.

    This is the quintessential human flaw. A social animal that is by nature fractious and rebellious. It is the reason we evolve ideas and behaviors so rapidly, but also why when uniformity and solidarity is required, it rarely happens. The world will burn and there will be people capering about with matches and gasoline because it is their right to do so.

    It is also why so many things like the following will probably never happen (recognizing these are some of my ideals, and not everyones):
    True recycling with near zero waste
    Elimination of religion
    Move to mass transit in America
    World-wide peace with cessation of weapon development
    Reduction of gun ownership to near zero
    Reduction of meat consumption and the industry's impacts

    'Two of biotech company Moderna's top executives dumped millions in company stocks just as the value peaked by 30 percent on news of early success in clinical trials for a COVID-19 vaccine. But right before medical reviews suggested that the results weren't as promising as had been hyped, the company's chief financial officer and chief medical officer sold off $30 million in company shares through an automated system that reads futures on certain volatile stocks. [...] Moderna says that because the sales were executed under a so-called 10b5-1 plan established in advance, they are not suspect. Former Moderna director Moncef Slaoui recently left the company to lead the White House's vaccine development effort.'

    That is not suspicious at all...

    I am still wondering how you can develop a vaccine for something people don't readily remain immune to (or at least as far as I am hearing). This also makes me wonder about the herd immunity mentality. Has anyone seen convincing articles for either consistent immunity or herd immunity yet?

    EDIT/Side note: There appear to be plenty articles on the rapid development of IgG and IgM antibodies to COVID. I am wondering how protective these are and how long they last.


    Last I read there is no evidence of neutralising antibodies yet. There is also no evidence that they are NOT produced either. So a vaccine could be a scientific impossibility. Or at least only protect us a bit. Apparently a pre-pandemic coronavirus vaccine study actually worsened peoples outcomes when they did become infected because the immune system was primed for an overreaction so inflammatory symptoms set in faster. Yay.


    Huh, that is horrifically interesting. Yeah, I figured you and some others on the forum would be far more versed in the immunology than I even begin to be :) . Thank you.
