Out of the Blue

I've been getting around pretty well on my twice-sprained ankle thanks to some help from a neoprene brace. The itch of healing is starting to make me nuts because it's below the skin, but it also hasn't healed up enough to put it through much without a brace, and I can't really say when I'll get past this point, as the last time I had a high ankle sprain it took ages to recover, and I was much younger at the time. Actually, if I'm smart, I'll continue to wear the brace for a while after it's no longer a necessity, since it helps remind me to be careful on it. Besides, I think the orthopedic look is in this year.

Hopefully this will finally put an end to discussions about unnecessary and economically damaging mass quarantines. The media fear mongering of this whole situation was absurd.

Can you imagine the Millions per death spent on Ebola vs the nothing spent on the 20,000+ that die every year from the flu? Something something great intentions something something missed the mark something something......

20k is nothing. And that's only the very old and very young. I've had the flu twice in my life and both times was down for only 2 or 3 days. Hell last time was about a decade ago, and it was on a weekend so I only actually missed one day of work. And a good friend of my mom's was one of those people who took the vaccine and got paralyzed. Spent years in therapy learning to walk again and all that. Fucking nightmare. And you also never hear about the billions the taxpayers pay for when that shit happens. If I recall it was almost 3 billion last year in the US. Thanks, but I'll chance getting the flu. And the government really needs to stop being so generous to Pharma with our money.
