My friends and I used to get these massive drinks called “fish bowls” at some local bars with like 10 straws in them. Essentially death by rum punch. I miss those late nights of the communal drinking from the same well haha

Someone I work with has family in France and was there for the holidays and her mom tested positive like a two days before she was supposed to fly home and she had to flee immediately. She couldn’t imagine having to work on the other side of the world with no monitor. Didn’t even think of that.

Accusing anyone who isn’t vaccinated of being “anti-science” shows a fundamental misunderstanding of both the vaccine, and of science. I crack up watching people rationalize each extra shot, and each more restrictive measure. Don’t worry tho! Just keep doing what you’re told, like a good little drone, and someday life will go back to normal….Hahaha sike. Suckerssss. I pity people living in blue states. It’s only gonna get worse too.

Genuinely confused as to why so many state and local governments are dropping all covid safety measures. Things have been trending downward, and that’s great, but almost the entire country is still at high community transmission levels. I don’t understand the metric they are using to gauge things all of a sudden.

I’m triple vaxxed (with booster) and wear masks everywhere (except for when I go for a run outside). I’m very cautious, because my wife has asthma and is pregnant. Just found out today I tested positive AND had passed Covid to my wife (who is staying at home all the time). we are waiting but I might have also spread it to my 90 yr old parents whom I’m visiting for Christmas. Like WTF? I feel like I had been lied to by these big pharmas..I’m praying my wife’s condition doesn’t get worse

I am scheduled to fly from NYC to Mumbai via Paris next Wednesday (Jan 5) for a ~10 day trip. Have any of you, your family, friends, etc. flown a similar route (I.e. from US to India via Europe) in the past week? If so, what is the arrival process (Covid test, quarantine requirements, etc.)? I’ve had all recommended vaccine shots and I’m only in Paris for a 2 hour layover (not leaving the airport). Any information on this would be greatly appreciated!

Does anyone else feel like Education is a joke right now?
