  1. I was just reading about this. Horrible, awful. Witnesses are saying the cop who shot her didn’t try to deescalate at all, but at least there’s body cam footage already under review.
  2. Dude in his Fuck John Wayne shirt is my twitter banner.
  3. Right, but talking chance is still oddspak no matter which type of clotting you're discussing, so I don't think there is another way. Poo-pooing on someone for bringing up comparative clotting issues with the pill, or pregnancy, or general covid in comparison is still a borderline asshole thing to do. I mean, John Q. Public, unfortunately, really isn't going to parse the scale between how serious the AZ clots are and say, DVT. They're just not. AZ is in, it's out, wait no, under this age it's fine, but now only over that... government messaging has fucked it sideways. An example would be a relatively local clinic here in Canada that was set up to deliver like 6000 doses per day [of AZ] and only a couple hundred people showed up. You can totally have both conversations, and yeah, ideally they'd align, but at the end of the day? The general public will more readily understand odds, so that's got to be the ground game, imo.
  4. Anticoagulant lifer here, but prevalence of incidence is the point, not the comparison per se, ergo- a comparative disarmament of AZ hesitancy.
  5. Agreed. It really doesn't parse with her character as established so far. On multiple occasions Sharon bent or broke the rules to stay true to values she holds higher than duty to country, or any oaths she may have taken as an agent. I was being flip when I speculated earlier that this Sharon could be a Skrull as a lead in to Secret Invasion, seems much more likely this is an in-the-open but undercover type situation.
  6. Would be a moment if the Sharon we've seen here is an oblique lead in to Secret Invasion and she's a Skrull. Anywho, my favorite episode thus far.
  7. iono if anyone's posted this yet [apologies if so] but could this new covid treatment be as good as it sounds? from the link: i. patients with a self-administered nasal spray application found to have reduced SARS-CoV-2 log viral load by more than 95% in infected participants within 24 hours of treatment, and by more than 99% in 72 hours ii. trial concluded that treatment accelerated clearance of SARS-CoV-2 by a factor of 16-fold versus a placebo iii. randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial evaluated 79 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the majority heavily-infected with the UK variant iv. no adverse events were recorded in the group v. submission for Emergency Use in the UK and Canada for the treatment and prevention of COVID-19 is planned immediately
  8. A post-utopian shift Elseworld mini in the above vein could be interesting, maybe. For me, anyway. Not sure how much commercial success there'd be in some disillusioned but otherwise carefree soul seekers looking to Old Man Clark on the Mountain for... stories about the good old days. Like, at that point Kryptonian tech would've built a shield around the earth, amirite. I could quibble [Ma and Pa, in particular; materials and production capacity requiring directly ponderous involvement in international relations] but I don't think you're entirely wrong. There are drawbacks to canon, and what the audience wants. Rip on Superman and write it. I'd read it.
  9. Sure. But, you're extrapolating that Clark could do these kinds of things because of Kryptonian tech when Jor-El, Krypton's preeminent scientist, couldn't save his homeworld. There's clearly technological and sociological limitations. And of course Marvel has the same issues, but if we took everything to their logical conclusions there wouldn't be much to write about, would there.
