Avatar 🗒 4:12am Don in Tampere:

Unfortunately, Germany has an unusually large number of anti-vaxxers, and it has been reflected in overloaded ICUs there, especially in the east where there are lots of right-wing AfD voters.
Avatar 🗒 4:13am Don in Tampere:

Oh cool, I don't think I've ever heard Chas Smith on the radio, even on WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am Brian D:

Hey @Don. I actually played that clip because of the discussion on the comments board last week, where someone (you?) mentioned that the anti-vax movement was a mix of people from the far right and the eco-left.
Avatar 🗒 4:15am Don in Tampere:

That is still true, but the correlation with right-wing politics seems to be stronger. But yes, there are also a fair number of new-agers in the A-V ranks too.
Avatar 🗒 4:17am Don in Tampere:

Also, in Finland there is a strong correlation between being unvaccinated/not wearing masks and voting for the True Finns party,although the esoteric AVs exist here too.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:17am Jim the Poet:

Love this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am Brian D:

Think those correlations are universal, Don. And good morning Jim! See you in a bit.

G'day** WTF auto correct 3??
Avatar 🗒 4:23am Don in Tampere:

Funny though, I don't remember any controversy when we all went to the polio vax center in the local elementary school and got our sugar cubes. Though it's also possible that I was too young to be aware of any discussion
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24am Brian D:

I don't remember it either, Don. I'm sure there was some, but that was before social media was around to amplify it.

I had to check the year, and apparently the "Sabin Sundays" were in 1960, so I would have been only four. I'm surprised I remember it at all

Thanks for the translation link. And good for the topplers! I wonder when Atlanta will rename Ponce de Leon.

Brian, I lived in County Armagh for a year. & worked in a Psycho Geriatric Nursing Home here for 2 years. So I have a thread of understanding mate. My parents are in their 80's, & I see some tells appearing.

Why is the end of life so cruel
Maybe this is why
the ancients considered
death in combat
as
glorious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55am Scott67:

Actually, County (L)Derry. It was over 30 years ago. The confusion is because my Dad discovered his great grandfather was from Country Armagh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57am Scott67:

LiX, I think it's why I drink like I'm in combat mate.

Behold, the people is one,
and they have all one language;
and this they begin to do:
and now nothing will be restrained
from them,
which they have imagined to do.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24am Scott67:

Fred, it's like a never ending story mate! I was in TRASH CULT Venue Saturday, to get help from a guy. When the laptop shutdown suddenly, bad battery. But took the drivers down with it. Long story short. This Saturday seems too soon to get shit up. It'll be Sunday 6th Feb here, my Birthday. So was hoping to make an occasion of it. But also discovered today that the Knave in Melbourne, who's Show is on in same slot on Drummer Stream. Shares the same Birthday. So I will enjoy spending it in his Show instead.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36am Scott67:

LiX, cool mate, I get what you meant by it. Just the attribution of existence by a deity cheapens what humanity as a Species has really achieved. And excused what it has not.

I like the big dusty book.
It’s full of stories
that many recognize and have
certain meaning attached
depending on their experience.
So
when I quote something
from the big dusty book
it’s never because I want to
evangelize.
It’s a color on the palate

Skipping is a complex movement
Ability to skip comes rather late in child’s cognitive development

Robn, Jim is subbing for Carol next. But he's a great bloke too.

yea and then you reach a certain age & society says “no more skipping for you” if you skip, we will laugh at you and assume you’re a nut. so unfair.
