Chimpanzees are believed to be the source of HIV, from hunters coming into contact with their blood after a kill, not fucking...but, who knows what those African hunters were really up to? 😉

I wonder if their version of HIV is more mild? Since chimps fuck each other fairly indiscriminately, you'd think their primate community would all end up with it and eventually be wiped out as a result?

Monkeypox seems to be more prevalent in the gay community.

N-G.com take note.

China is still locked down right now so there’s little risk of monkeypox.

Assuming LoneSage’s unofficial marriage wasn’t to a monkey.

The doctor confirmed my neighbor has covid. Doc told him that he's the 6th patient today that has it.

Another of my coworkers tested positive for Covid yesterday, right on time, about 2 weeks after the last incident. Probably only a matter of time before somebody brings monkey pox into the facility too...

Missed my end of the year work party and a friend's retirement party. Someone brought some covid to share at the staff party on Thursday and most of those people were at the retirement party on Saturday. Now a bunch of teachers and their families have covid.

So glad I couldn't go!

I was planning to get a booster every six months because that kind of seemed to be where things were headed. Well, it's six months now. Why can't I get one?

Maybe you don't need one?

Yeah, I don't know how badly I need one. It seemed like scientific consensus was building around 6 month back when I got my last one, although efficacy was dropping off around 2 months. I had already accepted my fate, just like getting a flu shot every year.

So is the government just going to ration these forever? Seems like there should be plenty for those who want it.

After 6 months there’s little protection left from getting covid. You still have decent protection from getting super sick from it though. Still. I’d rather not get covid. Are we supposed to just pass it back and forth?

I’m sure we’ll see influenza and Covid boosters together come autumn. Last two years we’ve seen reduced importance on Covid during the summer.

US Government is currently spending all its money on fighting our proxy war in Ukraine.

Yeah, actually that's what it is. They're saving the supply for fall, when they're expecting the next wave.

Apartment complex locked down again. Worse than before. Can't go walk outside.
