Following on from today’s earthquake, the Victorian government has admitted their roadmap possibly has a few cracks in it!

If we weren’t an international laughing stock, we are now. Only a matter of time before North Korea offers to send peacekeepers to Victoria.

There is a direct statistical correlation between individuals of low cognitive function and vaccine hesitancy.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8133799/

“In conclusion, people with lower scores on standard tests of cognitive function reported being less willing to take up the future offer of vaccination for COVID-19. It is possible that erroneous social media news reports have complicated decision-making. Special efforts should be made to communicate clear information about vaccine efficacy and safety so that everyone—including those who report being less likely to choose vaccination—can make well-informed choices.”

Which group are you in? For or against? Those still pushing the it’s my right not to be vaccinated crap are effectively saying I’m a bit slow on the uptake here yet reinforce the Dunning Kruger Effect of believing their own bullish t.


Watching the moronic behaviour during the Melbourne protest yesterday, it was obvious that the cohort was at the bottom end of the gene pool when intelligence was handed out.

Im not too smart to think how smart I am but certainly not dumb enough to think I’m smart.

Be careful.

We’re several months behind the rest of the world, but it will be like this soon if you don’t get vaccinated:

Sorry Anti Vaxxer

Herman Cain Award

All the people featured on those two sites thought they were safe, not elderly, not at risk, had a healthy immune system so no vaccine needed. They weren’t going to be part of a “medical experiment”, they weren’t going to be “sheep” and “blindly obey Dr Fauci and Bill Gates”. They didn’t fall victim to “big pharma” and the lies of the “lame stream media”.

And after all those posts there’s usually a post about testing positive but no need to worry as they have a “healthy immune system”. Then a post asking for Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine. Then a post from their partner or family member informing everyone that person is in hospital on a ventilator. And then the ultimate post of their demise.

This should be a wake up call, these are people aged between 30-60 who maybe healthy or have minor underlying conditions like high blood pressure or being slightly overweight (the overweight BMI is lower than you think) that a large number of people who think they’re otherwise healthy have.

Please, do the right thing by yourself, your family, your friends, your community, your workmates and your industry and get vaccinated.

There is no doubt that Borders will not open probably for the foreseeable future.
I see QF group will go into administration, wipe most of their debt and come back leaner and meaner, watch this space !

I tend to disagree and remain more optimistic about the future than ever. Why? Most Joe Bloes have had enough and share similar views to me.

For those of us who have had both doses of vaccines we want to live our lives and are no longer concerned about contracting COVID. Sure I’d rather not get it but if it kills me in the process after being double vaccinated so be it. Truth is Australia still living under a rock 18 months on is slowly killing all of us.

Largely because ~ 50% of the eligible population are NOT yet double vaccinated.

and is the fault of the federal government. If we accepted the pfizer deal we'd be laughing right now, instead we're way behind the rest of the developed world.

...and if the crystal ball had been more accurate and predicted the media misinformation misrepresentation beatup ****storm about AZ things might have been different.

You'll have your chance to "stick it" to ScoMo sometime in the next 8 months or so.
Don't think you will succeed though, enough time for ScoMo to put lipstick on the past and I don't think enough will vote for Albanese....but how about we wait and see, wouldn't be the first time I've misjudged things.

Reading posts from people who can only bang on about the past - and jeez it's been a brutal 18 months - is just outright depressing.
If your intention is to feed on that depression - free razorblades anyone?? - then press on, you're being unfortunately far too successful in your pursuit IMHO.

For everyone else there is today (you're alive, beats being dead surely?) and with vaccinations ramping realistic expectations that 2022 should/will be heading in the way of "normal".

Cheers.

Galdian, well said mate. And completely agree, the media have done just as much harm to this country while trying to navigate COVID than any Fed/State Govt (Lib or Labor). Saying that the media also appear to be turning a corner in favour of living a life beyond COVID.
