    Fellow Unbelievers,

    Well, yesterday, I got my first Phizer COVID-19 vaccine, with the next one coming in 3 weeks! And all I had to do was go to the Pharmacy of a certain what I call Complicated Empire and ask!

    The Pharmacist Assistant said they had a free slot to be filled immediately, so I filled out the forms, giddlily took the vaccine, thanked her, and had no bad effects attributable to the vaccine!  I take regular vaccines, so I didn’t even have a sore arm!

    I was woozy some time afterward, but I chalk that to a sugar overdose.  A 30-minute ride on my stationary pedals cured that.

    No so-called “vaccine guilt” either!  I do feel like Robert Neville in the movie  The Omega Man surrounded by Matthias and his Zombies in “The Family”…but then again, I’ve felt like that since seeing the movie as a kid!”😁

    I highly recommend using walk-up-in-person-and-ask approach.  Apps are good at showing vaccine-available locations, but on available appointments, they are only as good as the data they receive and data changes fast with cancelled appointments.  (Adults, nota bene: This, of course, is true of any data on any site on the InnerToobz.)

    Three Cheers for Reason, Science, and God Damn Godless Free-Market Capitalism! (What’s left of it anyway!) 👍👍👍

    Pretty good movie even though Heston is in it. I can’t ever seem to forget he is acting. I don’t know, did he get buried clinging to his musket?

    Balls to the wall capitalism.

    Keep drinking the capital kool aid. The exploiters are happy to have the exploited express satisfaction at their good fortune. Reason? Does that involve questioning your views? No issues with capitalism? okay

    I’ve mostly forgotten his NRA and political activism legacy. To me, strangely, he’s a sci-fi actor and little more despite probably being more famous for Ben Hur and The Ten Commandments. Everything beyond Planet of the Apes/ Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green, and The Omega Man is sort of noise to me. I think these movies were filmed during the time he started making his political flip, but that’s before my time.

    When I am Legend (movie) came out, it made me think about Heston and The Omega Man. I realized I had almost the opposite issue with Will Smith, who will always be first and foremost the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to me despite the fact that he’s actually done a lot of A-list sci-fi films.

    Jake,

    Lemmie get this straight:

    I come to a Pharmacy asking merely for a first appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination, not certain when, if any, are available, not certain how long the queue will be.

    I, instead, get my first vaccination, my second appointment, a 15-minute monitoring for any bad side effects, and a smiling, friendly Pharmacist Associate administering the shot, explaining procedure, and attending to me all the way…and yet I am being exploited???

    You have a very weird metric for what constitutes “exploitation.”

    My name is Jake and i am considered a flake.

    Oh hey Enco, do you suppose your experiences in procuring a vaccine shot is a fair sample of transactions enabling you to assess capitalism? I assure you that capitalism is responsible for a great many ills.

    I got Pfizer #1 with no side effect beyond feeling a little tired for a while and the expected injection site soreness.

    Shot #2 is reputed to be the hard hitter and that proved to be true for me, though the side-effect was rather unexpected: a very bad case of diarrhea that hit at about 5 a.m., causing me to get out of bed and run for the throne room at least four separate times. While the bouts were further and further apart, they did occur all morning.

    I checked and, yes, this is a listed side effect of the Pfizer vaccine.
