    Other than that, no. Flu isn't very dangerous to healthy middle-aged people. Plus the shot only has like 50% efficacy, so fuck it.

    COVID is a different story. In fact, a study of the biggest difference between flu danger and COVID danger showed that there are two points where they're farthest apart -- in infants (flu is substantially worse) and people in their late 40s through mid 50s (COVID is substantially worse). After that the flu starts catching up to COVID regarding being deadly.

    So basically the "it's just the flu" line is least true around my age.
    covid isn't dangerous to people in their 50s, no matter how much you try to justify your basement dwelling situation, the numbers are clear, you're in no danger

    you're not fat, you're not unhealthy, you're fine

    Main reason I am not getting 2nd shot is the reported 80% after 1st dose. Even with all the confusion from the media if 1st was only 55% as first thought I would get the 2nd

    I don’t think the upside is worth the risk. Now fake news talking about a 3rd booster shot. WTF I thought 2nd was a booster. We will just continue to wear mask only when going in big box stores. I will let the dust settle and see how these vaccines effect people in next 6-12 months
    This seems crazy for a bad day, for someone who already got one, not an anti-vaxxer.

    I understand I got no side effects, but I would have taken a day of cancer again, which far exceeds the worst flus ever, to just be done with it. I don’t care about any third booster. I’ll happily get that also.

    It’s less time consuming than any appointment ever. I was out before my scheduled appointment. I’d suggest YouTubing rather youthful guys getting out of hospitals after 100 day stays and weigh that against a a really bad day that you may not even have. The choice is yours of course, but not much of one imo given you already have first down. I might only get one if I already had Covid.


    To answer thread, I’ve been looking into trying to take my dad to Scotland for a golf trip. I have wanted to for a few years, but I want him to be able to play it and enjoy it while he’s still strong and healthy. Not just hitting balls 100 yards down the middle like an old man.

    I’m waiting to see if my buddy can get the time away and join us. I intend on booking it pretty soon. I’ve been checking the historic courses and stays. It’s surprisingly easier for the public to play some of the great courses there than it would be here.

    It’s always easier to have a third playing partner so you don’t get paired with strangers, so waiting on my buddy to see if he can work it out, and he basically grew up at my house as his father passed young, so is essentially family.

    Don’t know if it will be first month I book as Scotland is still under restriction, but first major thing I’ll do other than back to normal life.

    It should be glaringly obvious I consider you a subhuman retard by this point. I don’t know why you bother replying to me.

    I can’t fathom anyone sweating a bad day, I truly can’t. Strikes me as the biggest pussy thing ever. If one is crazy about the mRNA aspect, I thinI that idiotic also, but already having one, that’s not the issue.

    I can do whatever I want. The world is largely open. If masks are mandated for the vaccinated, it will suck, but has no effect on a golf course or restaurant or anywhere else I’ll go.

    I was at a bar for a brief time the other day and no one was wearing one. I don’t get the we can’t do anything crowd. Very little is prohibited at this point here. I grasp you live in the worst present state, but from my understanding, it isn’t even locked down. It’s recommended.

    Lol at a chart that covers months and doesn’t even equal a bad day of Covid during its peak. You truly are retarded and don’t understand basic math.

    BCR let me put it this way. My way of thinking. They say I am 80% with 1st dose. 2nd dose you go to 90-94%. Just not worth the risk of being very sick getting 2nd IMO

    If you mean the lockdown crowd in US, Iíve asked everyone here what they canít do and no one ever answers.


    If you mean the death, any death is tragic and I feel bad, and Iíve never been one to claim there wonít be any death associated with vaccine. I took it and thought itís possible to be one in a million.

    I tend to over exaggerate what I think might happen, and itís a minuscule fraction of the deaths that Covid brings. Covid is the equivalent risk of smoking two packs a day for 40-50 years death wise for walking through the virus at the wrong time. Any side effect deaths or breakthrough cases are closer to deaths from falling out of bed per year. The risk/reward seems rather obvious.

    I get that. Itís not nearly as crazy as not getting it at all, but they donít have any clue how quickly that 80% dissipates with one, while knowing youíre good for at least six months with second. The reaction on second for half the people tells me itís significantly a compounded thing. Whatever, obviously your call, and youíll likely be fine either way. I guess having been tremendously ill for years in my life, a bad day of anything is a laughable inconvenience to me.

    I couldnít wait to get it, I was very happy when they opened to my age group. Just donít like what I am hearing from the media. Fully vaccinated still wear mask WTF. Donít make sense. If 1st dose was only 55% as first thought 2nd would be a no brainer. I still have 4 days to change my mind but unlikely I will

    Obviously it’s your choice. Clearly your state is going to err on the Republican side of this issue, so unlikely to have passports and such. You’ll be fine there. So as long as you stay mostly there, you shouldn’t have any issue. I expect other states to allow private businesses to insist, it’s already happening, and one shot won’t be good.

    I think you’re probably fine. I think anyone that got one is highly likely to be fine as far as worst case scenarios for their life, but I don’t know that to be a certainty. My thinking is they drew a heavy correlation in the T Cell immunity of people who had previous corona strains decades earlier as a protectant.

    So logically, I would guess this being the actual Covid strain, even one shot would be protective from worst case scenarios. They are going to measure antibodies and those will dissipate and they’ll definitely recommend boosters, but there is no telling if we NEED them. It’s such a little thing to me that takes less time than a normal doctor appointment and I’m 100% confident in the science, so no brainer personally, but I’d guess you’re fine and probably will remain so. You might get discriminated against though outside your state.

    Got the Johnson & Johnson shot Monday. Don't see life changing any as far as what I'll do. I've pretty much just lived my normal life the last year. Been to Vegas 3 times since August and took a poker trip down to the Hard Rock in Tampa too.

    What BCR said. Monday afternoon then that shit blew up Tuesday. Walked into a Publix pharmacy to see if I'd get in with no appointment and that was all they had.

    Start doing in-person shopping again and seriously dial down the usage of these fail shopping services


    Go to a Dodgers game with Ben

    Go to a weekly home poker game I used to be part of

    Go to restaurants

    Get cavities filled at dentist

    Go to two non-urgent doctor appointments

    Have contractor over to house to do a bunch of work I've needed for awhile


    Also possible:

    Go to Las Vegas

    Go to Commerce (depends on then-current mask/food/drink policy)

    Go on small trip where we stay overnight somewhere



    Then of course I will take my Colorado trip in the summer & hopefully attend WSOP in fall if their mask policy isn't oppressive.
    I've been doing the highlighted above as per usual since the outbreak. The only difference would be the mask and distancing. Air travel will be my number one.

    Get my first shot May 5th.
