    Gotta say Mad Dog, that's quite the imagination you have there.

    We did the "gotta say" joke on the podcast recently. Always funny.

    Without engaging in the character debate, the fact of the matter is that, hypothetically speaking, if you were to receive no paperwork for having gotten the vaccine (maybe if they were to track how many people got it and where rather than who specifically), I would bet that you and many others would not have gotten it, and it would much more difficult for the medical establishment and media to convince people that the vaccine has a net positive impact on your health over the long term.

    So there are two questions for the people who otherwise not have taken it. What is your price to compromise what you think is good for you and your health (i.e. is being able to coach jujitsu worth potentially compromising your health— if not now, possibly long term)? Second, how much of your health/freedom would you compromise for that price (i.e. how far down the slippery slope of compliance are you willing to fall in order to do/have those things)?

    Interesting that you equate freedom with violence. I think that tells us an awful lot about you and how you think and why we will probably never agree.
    And that's true, I did keep it general and impersonal. I see no advantage to detailing my personal skills or exploits in public. That goes for most things I do. I don't Insta my PRs either.

    Many of the people who immigrated here either did so because of austere conditions or because they were fleeing tyranny. They were all brave people. You don’t get on a vessel the size of the Mayflower and puke your guts out for months if you’re not brave. It’s in our “cultural DNA,” if you will.
    Excellent! You said what I was trying to say better. It's just part of who we are as a people, even if some have forgotten that it doesn't mean we all have.

    That's why I say we're talking past each other. He can't seem to understand this and keeps arguing as though we do. Which I find to be a cultural curiosity. As Frank said, it's practically in our DNA but wal can't get his head around it. It's like we're different species. But we aren't. I'd love to know how to get the wals of the world to let go of their attachment to authority.

    And crime is a factor in that decision for you, is it not?

    33 to 47 murders, when people were locked jnside half of the year constitutes “somewhat” of a crime increase?
    I'm just measuring crime in the same way the annual reports measured crime for easy comparison. I would not equally weight each category of crime--murder should certainly be weighted higher.

    I would guess a big factor in that increased rate is because of the pandemic rather than in spite of, as you seem to suggest. It'll be interesting to see what the 2022 and 2023 rates end up being.

    I pay attention to local crime reports and local safety reports on social media (nextdoor, ring, citizen). You don’t live here and your “data” doesn’t do anything except prove my point.
    It's not my data, it's the city of Austin's data. What you're suggesting is going by "feeling" and not being objective/systematic. You cannot get an accurate picture by your incidental exposure to crime/safety reports on social media.

    But, hey, go get your concealed carry permit. It's America after all, right?

    Now that you mention it, isn't that what a tough outlaw would do?

    Are you seriously suggesting that the City of Austin's data is objectively true? Can be trusted as objectively correct? Have you learned nothing this year?

    No. I'm suggesting that an individual cannot do better.

    No. But thank you for saying that because now everyone can see how shallow your understanding is.

    This is an interesting question. For me, getting the papers is a deterrent, not an incentive. I could have legitimately gotten the vaccine in the first wave (occupation and medical), but I waited by age group, which was Monday.

    The “paper” is literally a piece of paper with the blanks filled out by hand. Exactly like my yellow vaccine card I carry in my passport. Both are objectively bull shit.

    In the balance, I am proud of being considered trustworthy and would prefer an honor system. But we are not honorable apparently. So I worry about other things.

    Without domain experience, you don't have data. You just have bits. You performed calculations, not analysis.

    It's now unfashionable to question the provenance of data. Had it been 2014, and you had phrased your viewpoint as "VCG is the new max", he would have nodded approvingly. But in 2021, you're just crazy Uncle Rippy.
