I'm pretty much fine now. Much less than the flu. If I didn't test positive for COVID, I would never have known. I had another virus last year that lasted a couple of weeks and made me cough, etc. That one was much worse and it tested negative for COVID
Maybe one or both of your tests gave faulty/false results?

Glad to hear you're pretty much fine now.

Was it like a cold, or had other symptoms?

Michael Jackson causing problems in Canada.

"The CBC reported that Michael Jackson appeared on a web program called “Live with Laura-Lynn,” where host Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, formerly of “The 700 Club Canada,” supported the disappearing dad’s decision. The little girl was put in front of the camera to deliver a statement.

“It can change your DNA,” the child said. “I don’t believe God wants me to. And it can make you sick and kill you.”

It has actually. Well for most people anyway and the ones who have been infected are probably better off and less likely to get serious complications and die from a cytokine storm.. I don't care what anyone says I'll admit I had my worries and doubts but since having my first shot earlier I am certain their is nothing wrong with the vaccine.
Little soon to celebrate eh ? I wish you well tho brother

The vaccines are ineffective at preventing transmission and infection of corona.

The MRNA vaccines do not change DNA.

Do you mean Indigenous, first Nations, etc.? If you go on reddit.com/Canada there is a lot of racism and hatred towards natives with people thinking the natives get everything for 'free', etc. But what they do not realise is that the housing, health-care, schools, etc. on the Indian reserves are not good at all, compared to the rest of Canada, and the police do not like natives and for decades I read and heard how when it is super cold below freezing or a blizzard or ice storm police would take Indians who were drunk or just in the wrong place far away into the middle of nowhere away from any town, city, reserve, shelters, etc. :(


First nations people have been utterly shit on by europeans. There is no possible way it can be undone or patched up. The only hope, is for the First nations people to decide to forgive.

Most of us are not giving them a reason to and it is breaking my heart.

Almost exactly a month. Had two shots of Astra, then a Pfizer booster. I didn't delay any of the shots, so this is the highest level of protection available in Australia and it still didn't transmission of the virus despite masks and other restrictions.

I'm pretty much fine now. Much less than the flu. If I didn't test positive for COVID, I would never have known. I had another virus last year that lasted a couple of weeks and made me cough, etc. That one was much worse and it tested negative for COVID.

Maybe the booster is to thank for the mild symptoms. I don't know. I'm 40 years old. Not overweight. No other health conditions that should influence COVID. Got a good immune system, generally.

It's weird getting "the" virus after all this time and it being a total non event.


you had a little cold and you feel better now

2 years ago, you wouldn't have even mentioned it



so you still going for shot 4 and 5? i say fuck it, you might as well

sorry but could you break this down for me and tell me what does all this mean?
the tweets were about jeremy farrar and others, who when they first saw sars-cov2, floated the hypothesis that it was man made because one specific part of it (that makes up 12 bases, i.e. letters out of 30000 in its genome, which corresponds to 4 amino acids- a very tiny part of a protein) is extremely well adapted to bind to certain receptors on some types of human cell.

now people are taking these tweets as evidence of a cover up and that scientists do think its man made. however, it is usual when you detect a new phenomenon to float every hypothesis possible- lab origin was pretty favoured by these people so they thought it was quite likely- and test each one. upon further testing, they determined that it was not of lab origin for several reasons.

firstly, the same protein containing the very dodgy looking part also has some decidedly sub optimal characteristics. so, if that protein were engineered, you'd think they would have tinkered with that.

secondly, no viral species used in the type of research that could potentially create a virus like this are remotely similar to sars-cov2. it makes no sense to posit a lab origin because we can't find the original wild reservoir, when you don't have the original lab virus either. that creates more questions than it asks- since we have good explanations as to why we don't have the exact wild reservoir. i put more explanation as to why we probably won't find that, and further reasons why sars-cov2 is almost certainly not man made here: https://bluelight.org/xf/threads/court-orders-vaccine-data-released.914539/post-15406457

I don't think anyone can say with any certainty whether it was or wasn't made in (or otherwise leaked from) a lab.

indeed. i think a lab leak is possible, though still unlikely.

but there is literally not one piece of credible evidence that its made in a lab. if there was someone would have jumped on my offer to replicate the analysis that demonstrates such. tbh i didn't expect anyone to because afaik, and i've looked there isn't any, published or unpublished but i'd hope that someone would at least try to demonstrate that they have some reasonable basis for the views they expound on here. so i'd be happy at estimating the probability of it being man made at ~0.000000000000001%.

it would help if china were more co operative, but we need to accept that won't happen and work with the information available to us.

tldr: if you take a bunch of hemp (specifically CBDA and CBGA) and squeeze out the noids without heating them (decarboxylation) you might be able to prevent COVID.

I think it might be a large amount as well, not sure exactly how much maybe heroic doses idk it's just a theory based on one example.

Knowing that China is probably just being who they are shouldn't push you towards believing them or trusting the lack of evidence. If the government wants someone to disappear in China, they disappear. It is precisely because I do not trust them that I lean towards believing the virus is man made.

You can't say it's unlikely. You said almost certain earlier. Now you've put a silly number on it, which I assume is intended to be silly.

There is no evidence it wasn't made in a lab. God knows what modern science is capable of when you don't have to abide by ethical standards or concern yourself with accidentally killing a bunch of people. I do not assume to know what China is capable of in terms of viral warfare.

You were certain initially. Since then, there is a shadow of doubt. The scientific world acted similarly. At first, the idea of it coming from a lab was absurd and conspiratorial. Then, one by one, experts started saying they weren't sure. What was it that changed?

I've been smoking weed like crazy since I got COVID. It seems to have less recreational effect but it also treats the sickness nicely. I've been smoking green joints and hacking my lungs up. Good times.

Considering how mild the virus has been and how strong natural immunity is, I will have another Pfizer jab when I'm legally required to... but I don't see why I need to keep getting jabbed forever honestly. I will admit... getting the virus has changed my perspective a bit.

There have been multiple outbreaks at work. Severely disabled people who are vaccinated are pretty much fine. Maybe it's like a bad flu. That's the worst we've seen. So, the vaccines protect them. They should vaccinate themselves. End of story.

The world needs to go back to normal.

I don't even know why I have to isolate at the moment. I mean, I don't care. I'm playing my new XBOX Series S. I'm getting paid to stay home. I just don't see the point?

Omicron has changed everything.

Everyone is going to get the virus.

Those who want to be vaccinated have had more than enough time.

i just said that they will not be co operating fully or being completely honest.

You can't say it's unlikely. You said almost certain earlier. Now you've put a silly number on it, which I assume is intended to be silly.
when did i say it was almost certain? its almost certainly not and i've never believed it almost certainly was. yes the number is intended to be silly.

distrust of china is one thing. its completely different to believing that they, while collaborating with international researchers, hid entirely new viruses for use in gain of function research, and then developed technologies far beyond what anyone else anywhere around the world has, and used this to engineer a virus.

i have outlined the technical reasons why it is extremely improbable, as close to the point of certainty as you can get with the given evidence, sars-cov2 is not man made over and over again, recently in this thread and the other, so i don't feel like rehashing them.

At first, the idea of it coming from a lab was absurd and conspiratorial. Then, one by one, experts started saying they weren't sure. What was it that changed?

you have this the wrong way round. at first, some very eminent virologists thought 50-50 or 60-40 that this came from a lab. they then did further analysis and found no support for this hypothesis. in fact, they found strong evidence against this hypothesis. sufficient to abandon it.

Covid was made in a lab though. Funded by the NIH to the Wuhan lab in China by the criminal Fauci for political gain.

The vaccines are ineffective, and acquired and natural immunity are better as defense strategies than experimental genetic treatments.

Cannabinoids are better to combat a virus intent on replication.

The elites in Washington are funding research to keep them wealthy, and steal money from the pockets of those they aim to infect.

Perhaps their reasons for abandoning it were not wholesome. The very people who probabky cooked this up were probably first on the scene ton hide their own finger prints.

Because I have omicron and zero vaccines I am a good example of what natural immunity looks like. I wouldn't take a asprin for this.

For those who are immune compromised lets make them a vaccine and if they buy it, then let's give that money to the vaccine makers, not everything and a bunch of new printed money too.
