Captive audience. Venting for therapy - at the big "W" where I ring up vast piles of crap for endless lines of consumers - it is unbelievable how many brainwashed, braindead wingnuts in a row using SNAP cards and wearing MAGA hats and professing the evils of Biden and the glory cheato boy there are. I have to be in a neutral position because of being in my official capacity as a cashier at work. So sure, it's easy for the "get a brain morans" to flap their traps - and arrrrg! it's stupid cowardly to pick a store employee (captive audience) who really can't express an argument about much while on the clock. I just want to finish my shift and get home. BUT the rest of the non-twisted are nice and dont bring up their politics - the facts are - it is the INSECURE who make the most noise. It's just noise. Mentally scrambling to justify their f'd up personality cult hoax they've been sucked into. Down deep, they DO know better. Such a cruel game to play! - i feel a little better now, thanks for reading!

I work in a small village shop in the middle of England. I’m so glad I can generally speak my mind. It’s not so bad now, but we had one particular antiva who would come in and proclaim loudly that masks don’t work. Every time he came in without a mask, I would hand him the box and he would put one on protesting vociferously. He got covid, gave it to his vaccinated parents. Immunocompromised Dad died. He’s still refusing the vaccine for him and his kids. I did hear on the village grapevine that his teenage son got himself vaccinated on the quiet.

Love to hear that kind of stuff. Proves that the apple sometimes does fall fare from the tree.

u/HotPinkLollyWimple Phucked around and Phound out Aug 16 '22

Working in the shop, people tell me all sorts of shit that they should probably keep to themselves! Seems to be even worse than working in village pubs. I smile to myself when I hear this kind of gossip - especially love it when the bullies, idiots and arseholes get what they deserve!

u/PoliticalECMOChamber Super Shedder Aug 16 '22

Years back I had some neighbors that were legit white supremacists, and they were not even shy about it.

When their daughter turned 18 she moved out of their apt. and into her Latino boyfriend's house. When the son moved out, he started dating a smoking hot blasian gal.

Sometimes, when you try to cram a ton of hate into a growing mind, that mind grows up to completely reject your bullshit. Wish there were more kids like that out there, but a few here and there are better than none.

UK is the first country to approve a new vaccine that targets the original covid and the omicron variant.

For some reason they’ve called it Spikevax, which will absolutely trigger the antivas and their cries of vAccInE cAusEs sPikE sHedDinG.

SpikeVax is the generic name for the Moderna Covid vaccine. It’s been around for a while. Pfizer named theirs Comirnaty.

As far as I know I haven't, despite pretty much all of my family getting it. My SO is at extra risk if she does catch it so we've definitely been as careful as we can without being 100% shut-ins.

Wife and I have avoided it so far. Every co-worker in my workgroup has had it. Every immediate family member on my wife's side has had it. I'm working remotely, still, and my wife only sees her family every six months or so (they live 2-1/2 hours away).

As far as I know I haven’t, but I had a sibling test positive (incidental test for a doctors appointment, had no symptoms) a few months ago so it’s possible I had an asymptomatic case.

Me and DH. (Knock on wood) Vaxxed + 1 booster, wishing we were eligble for the second booster. Masked up with N95 or KN95 both indoors and outdoors, and we try to avoid eating out or crowds. If we eat out, it's usually take out to dine at home or in a quiet park. We both work remote most of the time too, though the pressure to go back to work in person is increasing.

u/Fiz_Giggity Team Bivalent Booster Aug 17 '22

I hope not, but "feeling weird" was my number one symptom - kind of out of body, mentally foggy type feeling. Next day, it was like a stomach virus for me - but instead of one day, it was about 4. I had a dry cough for like 2 days, lost smell and taste for two months, and bad stomach pains on and off for a few weeks.

u/LongjumpingFarmer478 Aug 17 '22

Oof I hope you are doing ok now!

I am pretty well thanks, only "hangover" has been occasional bouts with the stomach, and being tired much more than usual. I'll get there, I just don't as quickly as when I was young.

u/PoliticalECMOChamber Super Shedder Aug 16 '22

Me. I think. My doctor suspects my complete lack of side effects from all four shots could be due to me having had covid already. If that's the case, I sure as hell didn't notice it.

My last flight was at the end of June. I was one of about 10 people who masked up on the plane, so yeah. But I have flown 4 times since the pandemic started and used N-95 masks each time - no Covid! May the odds be in your favor.

She's astounding. Lol. I love Tahani the best of course, hands down. That character is written specifically for fans of British humor lol. Obviously I also have a major crush on Tahani. I also have a major crush on Chidi. I swear I relate to every Mc on that in some way. I'm adorable trash like Eleano(loved her since Verónica Mars) , I think way too much about humans and their responses, I'd definitely have my own Tizzy Sofa, and I'm seriously naive about certain things.

Also, I've loved Ted Danson since Cheers, I love Becker, and my heart is singing that he is back doing a classic sitcom but modernized and he's Still. Fucking. Perfect. Working with a spunky blonde once again!

I'm gonna be so sad when I get to the final Ep, lol.

I also, and this is a first, have not looked up any trivia yet. This is the first show in a long time where I do not want spoilers, I never care if I'm spoiled but I want to savor this for all its worth. I love heaven and hell stories so much, I actually wrote my own 20 years ago in the form of a comic book that I'm going to illustrate soon. Good Omens is my second favorite book. Any goofy afterlife stuff is jsut my favorite thing ever. If you haven't, I highly recommend Dead Like Me & Reaper. I guess it's the hospice/Deathwife in me, I consider myself a friendly Reaper too even... Lol. /messorem!

ETA - my favorite thing about Bad Janet is her outfit is Sandy's from Grease. I think it'd be a great Halloween costume this year bc I also love Olivia

This was in /r/worldnews:

https://www.vice.com/amp/en/article/m7gb5y/queen-romana-didulo-citizen-arrest-qanon

It's about the self-proclaimed QAnon Queen of Canada telling her followers to arrest the police in Peterborough, ON.

Let's all remember that this is about more than just vaccination. It's a war between cruelty and compassion. These "Freedumb Convoy" fucks are hateful, spiteful bigots.

You can read about it here:

https://xtramagazine.com/power/anti-lgbtq2s-hate-ottawa-truck-convoy-219239

We aren't just working to defeat COVID. These people use COVID as a way to gain support for radical, hateful agendas. People go "Yeah, hey, I don't like the mandates, I'll lend my support", but it's really going to people who want to get rid of things like marriage equality or welcoming non-white immigrants.

We see this over and over again on their HCAs: they are just cruel and hateful bigots. Take a moment to remember that COVID is literally a symptom of a bigger disease and we often get too caught up in the arguments about what to do in regards to COVID when the elephant in the room is that these people are dangerous fascists with a lot of money and guns behind them.

Today's ad is for the "Patriots Breakfast Club" and shows 5 bags of coffee. "Biden is sleeping on our country! Don't be a Sleepy Joe and drink the coffee made for patriots by patriots."

There's a bag that says FJB on it. When I clicked through, it stands for Fresh Java Brew. Other top blends include WTF for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, a medium roast. Perhaps you'd like a nice cup of The "Right" Blend, Sweet Victory, Got Your Six, or Red White and Brew?

My small ongoing issue: I have a good friend who has an intellectual disability. Thankfully is vaxxed and boosted, but does spend time with the public for work and programs. She wants to hang out with me as it’s been about a year since we last saw each other. The issue is that our Before Times hangouts have been me picking her up to go grab lunch and then hang out at her place. Only my boyfriend is in my bubble due to Omicron, he’s the one person I spend time indoors unmasked because he’s easy to vet. Between the eating and being the driver it would be tricky to make it low risk. It’s hard to explain to her though. She has never been super open to any alternatives besides our usual routine and lately the weather has been hot trash.

Considering we have literally three movies' worth of thundering incompetence on the part of the Empire, you have to wonder if they've ever seen the movie.

My personal favorite is the meeting in the opening of the first movie where a guy insults the religion of a seven-foot cyborg with a laser sword with full license to kill. Clearly we're not dealing with the galaxy's brightest minds, here.

EDIT: Bonus points for the moment in the fifth episode of Obi Wan where two people who should know better than literally anybody else in the galaxy that you always check the body just walk off chuckling.

They clearly haven't been paying attention to what's going on in Ukraine either.

The Russian bear is getting its back broken. Turns out its spine is not as stout as the world has been mislead to believe.

Seeing as that guy got choked 20 years after most the jedi were killed it's probable the first time he saw the Force being used was when he was choked.

Its not unreasonable to believe the common veiw of most people was that Vader had adopted the lightsaber and belief in the Force to present an image to people. And that any reports of his "sorcery" were lies or exaggerations.

Even at the hight of the clone wars there were only 10,000 jedi knights in the entire galaxy. Then add Palpatine supresion of the Force. It's easy to see why the galaxy saw the Force as a myth. Even the rebels use of "May the Force be with you" points to a belief the Force was just superstition at 0 ABY.

So what? It doesn't matter if he thinks the Force is a fairy tale. He is still insulting the religion of his direct supervisor, who is a seven foot cyborg with a laser sword.

Furthermore, he is a seven foot cyborg with a laser sword who has absolutely no problem murdering his direct reports, on the spot, for displeasing him over even minor issues, which everybody in the room is presumably aware of by now.

Maybe Admiral Dumbass thinks Darth Vader can't choke him to death with his mind, but then again, Vader doesn't need telekinesis to kill people, it's just convenient for him and presumably there was a memo about morale/corpse disposal from the desk of Sheev.

So if Vader says the Death Star is nothing next to the power of cuddly kittens, or his sick metal band, or dat ass, the smart thing to say is either "yes" or nothing. That Admiral Dumbass cannot figure this out and yet still has a senior position speaks volumes about the overall competence of the Empire's bureaucratic structure.

That guy actually survived until the death star exploded, probably because even darth fucking vader knows something about morale.

Anyway, he has a funny 'canon' name ('Conan Antonio Motti') because it was 'revealed' - made up on the spot - on the Conan O'Brian show.

Considering Vader's other antics it's probably more just he got distracted and didn't go kill him.

It was early days of canon. A franchise can go two ways, no three ways: a character gets more 'extreme' as it goes on (flanderization), gets more 'nuanced' with more information, or both depending on author(s) over long stretches of time.

Putin World Declares ‘Our Agent Trump’ Is Irreversibly Screwed

I don't think he was a knowing agent (a useful dolt is another matter) and this is them just trying to stir shit, but it's still very funny.

u/PoliticalECMOChamber Super Shedder Aug 17 '22

I concur. Trump doesn't even seem to understand why shit should remain classified.

My only child just went off to her first day of high school today, and I'm a wreck because even though our school is very progressive, hardly anyone was masking at back to school night, and non of the faculty were. I know it's hard enough to be a teacher as it is, but is their plan really just to get COVID over and over? Actually, I'm sure the issue is just that they're telling themselves everything is fine and dandy so they can get through the day, but ignoring problems never, ever makes them go away. I feel so hopeless.

u/Cultural-Answer-321 Deadpilled 💀 Aug 16 '22

Don't worry about it. reddit has many subs that are just RWNJs.

reddit also has many that subs that are cool.

Let the RWNJs circle jerk themselves. Covid has no fucks to give about their gaslighting and bankrupt ideology.

u/Unlucky_Profit_776 ✨Typo Mary🖤 Aug 16 '22

Agreed. I've been on r news for a year and never had a problem. Odd

That was the first place I got kicked out of a year ago. :)

For the same reason. They don't like facts over there.
