oh, the irony: The equine contribution to the new CoVID-19 vaccine
North Americans began receiving the CoVID-19 vaccine this week, less than a year after the novel coronavirus was identified. That accelerated timeline is a remarkable scientific achievement. And horse people may be gratified to learn about the small but critical role that horses played in making that happen.December 30, 2021 at 1:48 am #96545
Thanks all. I got serious laughs reading the comments today.December 30, 2021 at 1:57 am #96546
When you travel to the Sahara Desert in North Africa, should you rent from Hertz, a one hump or a two hump camel?December 30, 2021 at 1:58 am #96547

Leading “$cientists” say neigh on horse dewormer, but also say their vaccine has better worms,December 30, 2021 at 2:17 am #96548zerosumParticipant
1. Is Omicron overcoming all the diferent kinds of vaccines …. China, Russia, USA
2. Has anybody gotten Omicron more than once
3. How many people got Omicron if they were unvaccinated.
4. Are the result better using Ivermectin when treating the symptoms of Omicron, (drippy nose, tired, headache, etc.) with using aspirins, tylenol, vitamins.

you wrote, ” Help me understand. Am I missing something here?”
You’re not missing anything, but are adding (or assuming) something that isn’t there: you are assuming that Pfizer has an inate desire or intention to be fair, logical or understood. They do not. Their only desires are to make money by selling the vax and to avoid prosecution by very very carefullly managing the legal technicalities. For those purposes they are being deliberately dishonest, knowingly illogical and purposefully misunderstood . Vax given under the EUA is exempted from liability. There is no liability exposure from the Comernity because that “version” Iidentical in every way EXCEPT the legal technicality of its having a different name and thereby a different legal identity . . . bcause the Comernity version has not beeen been injected into anyone , and never will be.December 30, 2021 at 3:08 am #96550
i guess one hump – i wouldn’t want to stand out on a foreign model.December 30, 2021 at 3:36 am #96551
That depends upon the length of your trip, one or two weeks!
P.S. When I started to hear camel jokes at work, I knew my next assignment was going to be overseas!December 30, 2021 at 3:52 am #96552
I should add that camels are the fowlest, meanest, smellyest, orneryest animal on the face of earth!
At the beginning of the rainy season, farmers would pair a camel with a donkey to plow their desert fields. The camels two front legs would always be tied together by a short rope, so if the camel got any brilliant ideas about running, it would immediately trip and fall on it’s front knees! The camel provided the mass while the donkey did the driving! If anything went wrong, the camel always got the beating, while the donkey enjoyed the break!December 30, 2021 at 4:24 am #96553

“The thing with HELPING people, for real, is that it’s a VERY SENSITIVE, very touchy, very personal, very hazardous, very humbling thing. It can only be done one-on-one, person to person interconnection, to really get to KNOW that person, or to know each other really…. And then over various breaks, setbacks, addictions, heartbreak, they do – or don’t – find their own strength to build a new pattern FOR THEMSELVES, not one you might advise or command them to do. You can’t centralize that, and you can’t institutionalize it. What people most need in my experience is love and self-worth coupled with honesty and stability. For you to believe in them, and forgive and not expel them when they transgress again. How is an institution, and MONEY, supposed to LOVE?”
And THAT is why I enjoy Dr D’s rants, and a hat tip off.
Because we can have different ideologies and yet arrive at the same or similar or compatible conclusions.December 30, 2021 at 7:03 am #96558phoenixvoiceParticipant
“ some of us had no interest in injecting a novel, untested substance into our bodies. Period.”
I tell this to people and they behave as if I haven’t said anything. It’s as if “safe and effective” was pounded into their brains, and nothing else can get in.
