    Takeaway - even Rip’s images are tiny.

    One of my training partners didn't come to the gym tonight. Got a "booster" yesterday and has felt like shit since. 24 year old dude in perfectly good health. Got the shots and now the booster due to family pressure. Shit blows my mind.

    Happened to me.

    I posted a comment that got screened and cancelled.
    I think I speak somewhat authoritatively here. If I can post, I think anyone can. I have said some stupid shit in this forum (and the paid forum too). Rip has still let me post every time. The group here might not be very receptive to all perspectives, but they don't really censor much. Even some pretty angry shit on my part. So if something you wrote got tossed, I would believe Rip did it because it wasn't useful (as he claims).

    So after being the toughest on lockdowns and restrictions, some kind of common sense has come back to Australia and they've decided now is the time to push for herd immunity and to let the omicron strain become endemic.

    Every state bar one is basically open, politicians are saying we are going to have hundreds of thousands of cases but based on the South African data they expect hospitlizations and deaths to be low with the caveat that as long as the hospital system is coping, there wil be no further lockdowns or restrictions.

    Yes, of course it is, because we’re about as interested in “debate” as you are.

    The choir deserves preaching to.

    Fair point. That will help for the first wave of young idealogues, but eventually the ammo runs out, but the supply of true believers is endless. They will keep streaming in by the trainloads from the urban centers to knock on the door of the farthest rural shack, just like in Communist Russia in the 20’s. Don’t make this any more difficult than it has to be, Rip. “Your” so called property is not your property, it belongs to the State as the kulaks found out. In today’s world, “your” body is not yours, it belongs to the State and the State will decide what is best.

    When we are all sent out to the camps to be reeducated we can train together and finally meet each other in person.

    Obviously I am exaggerating but damn it seems the noose is tightening. Fortunately this thread gives me hope that there are free thinkers out there.

    They're mocking us, no other explanation I can think of.

    The masks would look better if the beaks were yellow, but that might make the charade too obvious.

    So what's the deal with the kid desk and the fake window behind Brandon? Last week the fake window had shipping containers in the background?!
    hahaha these are the famous ffp2 masks, they have been mandatory in Germany and Austria for a while. Outside of those, they are extremely useful, because anyone wearing them where there is no explicit mandate can just be called an ffp person. I mean, not really person, an f word.
