Rowdy youth torch Covid-19 testing site in Netherlands as nighttime curfew triggers unrest (VIDEOS)
This is the tiny town of Urk Adam spoke about on the sunday No Agenda show. Many people are totally unhappy with the endless lockdowns and now even a curfew. None of it makes sense. Various protests in different towns today. From peaceful mass gathering in like Amsterdam with the police beating up everyone again to riots in other towns.
We also learn the reason there are multiple vaccine doses per vial - a shortage of vials.
"If glass vial supply was unlimited, manufacturers wouldn’t fill multiple doses into a single vial"
A lot of trivia in this article. My fave so far:
"Regulatory limits exist for the amount of dry ice permitted on planes because releasing CO2 into an enclosed space can have undesirable side effects such as confusion or unconsciousness for the people in said space. The US FAA has [...] also shared some advice to airlines such as how to avoid suffocation from the released CO2 and how to account for sublimation-induced weight loss when calculating the planes center of mass."
This is not to fearmonger, I'm just struck by the similarity in form and function.
This is a companion piece to the one that "reverse engineered" the Pfizer mRNA vaccine a few weeks ago. Reading it, I started thinking about what a virus is: a bit of nucleic acid (RNA or DNA) wrapped in a protein or lipid coat that uses your cells to make more copies of itself. The mRNA vaccine is also a bit of nucleic acid in a lipid coat, but just the code for a spike protein, not the whole genome, and it uses your cells to replicate itself. So, a virus? Thoughts?
Fascinating essay on the changed attitudes towards gov't from colonial times to the present. Walter E Williams: “The moral tragedy that has befallen Americans is our belief that it is okay for government to forcibly use one American to serve the purposes of another.”
