Right off hand, I would say short of a medical miracle, the suspect is dead in the capitol attack.

Also, there is going to be a problem with the narrative on this incident.

Brilliant bit of anti-authoritarianism.

(plus, the fact they're so easy to forge is good too)

Gee, why would the WHO and other health authorities ignore the science of aerosols?

Maybe because it shows very, very, clearly that disease transmission is heavily weather dependent? Which just might suggest that our lockdowns - at a cost of literally trillions of dollars and millions of lives - might not have done much?

Public health has become a scam.

Me: <posts article on astra zeneca blood clots>

Her: <rants about how media is sexist and giving far more coverage to that than blood clots following hormonal birth control because the misogynistic media etc etc oh and btw I feel personally attacked because you said I need to go outside my filter bubble>

Me: <points out the media is reporting that the astra zeneca blood clots are happening almost entirely in women, and some scientists suspect hormonal birth control may be involved>

Her: 👍

YouTube deletes an Italian channel with 14 years of history, half a million subscribers and two thousand videos.

In less than 24h it receives from its followers more than €150,000 needed to buy a national TV channel to broadcast throughout Italy.

#Byoblu's #DavveroTV will be the first case in the history of a YouTube channel that has become a TV channel completely crowdfunded:

"In other words, 20% of people are responsible for 80% of the viral load. This could mean that obese people are over sixteen times more likely to spread the virus than metabolically healthy individuals."

Republicans want voter ID laws.
Democrats want vaccine passports.

We're going to get the worst of both worlds where vaccine passports are required to vote.

"Over time, as expected, the likelihood of a healthcare worker being an index case had been falling as immunity developed. However, after vaccination this figure started to rise.

The Pfizer vaccination causes a transient fall in lymphocytes for the first three days after vaccination., The phase 2 trials of AstraZeneca similarly showed a fall in neutrophils."

Do you remember Vanitygen? VanityMnem does the same thing but returns a mnemonic instead of a single pair of keys. #Bitcoin #mnemonic

...and an unusually good video walking you through some of the details of a coal fired plant:

A few dumb things in this. But mostly very technical. Not "pop-sci"

In case you were wondering what digital vaccine passports will look like, I've done some research last year.

"The Wuhan lab director published studies about manipulating bat coronaviruses in a way that could make them more infectious to humans, and there were reports of lax safety standards at the lab.

Matt Pottinger: They were doing research specifically on coronaviruses that attach to the ACE2 receptors in human lungs just like the COVID-19 virus."

You don't say: politically-driven biotech mass experiments can be risky. I'm shocked.

Canadian officials have begun to stop administering the AstraZeneca vaccine over concerns there could be health complications for people under 55
