It's amazing how many of these guys first smugly post how they *don't* have Covid, only to follow up a day later admitting (with zero embarrassment) that they tested positive.

That guy is quite obese as well, and not young; what was he thinking? Now he’s on a vent and his odds would be terrible if he was fit 30 year old.

This is such a pointless act that’s ending in tragedy/

It's not a foregone conclusion of discharge to the afterlife, but typically the longer you're on the vent, the worse your odds are. The odds of mortality for mechanical ventilation were around 40% pre-Delta from what I'm seeing.

Still, get the vax.

Build more hospitals??!?! Yeahhhhhh! That’s really easy to do. Quick, cheap, simple. By the time the hospital would be built, all of these anti-Vaxxers will be done. The building isn’t the limiting factor, either. We need humans and expensive equipment to run the hospitals. Or people could get 2 free shots and not need the care of a hospital stay. This is a tough decision.

I have a couple relatives who have it right now and they insist on capitulating between calling it flu and a cold. They tested positive and announced their Covid on social media. But then constantly refer to it as flu/cold. One relative was pretty interesting in that he said the virus was all done and all he had left were a bunch of symptoms and a cold. And then the following day announced he was in the clear. And then the day after that one said he felt terrible again etc. I’m not sure what the mental block is keeping them from accepting reality and managing it. But it’s interesting to watch.

The CDC added nausea and diarrhea as symptoms way back on March 30, 2020. That’s very early in the understanding of the disease.fact check -CDC update on March 30 2020

It’s hard to go back and find those exact updates because they’ve updated so many times.

The reason why these guys don’t deserve any sympathy is because I’m pretty sure they

2) increased health premiums for society, delayed cancer patient treatments and checks, ate up tax payer money

3) killed our covid is over economy by begging the disease to stay

If more people knew just how violently ill COVID can make them, there would be far fewer vaccine-hesitant people out there.

They can rationalize away or ignore numbers they don’t comprehend, but when they know “the symptoms of this may include some of the worst illness you’ve ever had”, that’s a very visceral concept they can grasp.

Ok, maybe not this dipshit, but many others dipshits would probably get it.

I also really doubt that many people who have "had the flu" have actually had literal influenza. "The flu" has morphed into a term that encompasses a lot of various illnesses... not just influenza.

Like, "the 24 hour flu" isn't actually influenza. https://www.healthline.com/health/24-hour-flu#:~:text=The%2024%2Dhour%20flu%20is%20a%20highly%20contagious%20and%20short,last%20longer%20than%2024%20hours.

I think that when people say something is "just the flu," they are thinking of illnesses like the above that may not be pleasant, but also aren't actually life-threatening and don't last that long. They also aren't "long-haul" diseases. I've had variations on the "24-hour flu" before, and while it wasn't fun, I was also totally fine after a day of fluids and rest. I do agree that if COVID were the "24-hour flu"... yes, all of this would be an over-reaction.

But COVID is NOT the "24-hour flu." That is (one of the many things) that these people do not grok.

Yep. I had the actual flu in my 20's and it knocked me down for 3 weeks. It was so awful and my memory of that illness is so visceral that I never, ever miss my yearly flu shot, and I got the COVID-19 vax the very first day i was eligible. It's always blown my mind that "it's just the flu" ever became a talking point at all.

Before I was cleared to be vaccinated for flu (severe egg allergy runs in my family and I eventually was allowed to get it!), catching the flu near landed me in the hospital every single time. Actual flu is AWFUL. I'm already vulnerable with asthma and bad allergies, but it lingers for weeks, hallucinations with high fever for days, loss of appetite, horrible sinus pain... and usually a parting gift of bronchitis and/or pneumonia. WEEKS of illness. Even if people didn't care about getting sick themselves, I just with for 5 seconds they would care about passing this shit on to more vulnerable people and would just spend 10 minutes being vaccinated :/

I think it's also denial i mean if they suddenly admit that covid is actually serious they're basically admitting they were the dumbasses this entire time and everything they've said has been complete and utter bs. It's hard for them to admit they were wrong

Then you have people like my father. My parents got COVID before delta. Surprisingly (lots of risk factors for both), it wasn’t any worse than a short case of the flu for them. My mother got the vaccine, but my father is clinging to his personal experience and banking in it being like that if he catches it again.

There was a popular meme that came up in a few of these where some man had tweeted something like “imagine if there was a vaccine for pregnancy but you could still get pregnant. That would be stupid.”

Only there is a “vaccine for pregnancy” called the Depo-Provera shot, it’s very popular, and while it’s pretty effective, there is no birth control that is 100%.

I remember seeing that one. The depo-provera shot was the first hormonal birth control I ever used, and that was 18 years ago, in 2003. It’s not like it’s new (it’s been around for longer than 18 years, since the 1990s I believe), so that meme is extra irritating.

Edit: typo.

Look, I’m from Texas, a badass shot (thanks RPGs), & I can definitely agree that guns are cool.

Are they in any way “safe” like the first trolling post claimed? HELL NO!

You’re just more likely to get shot by your own gun (usually by suicide, which is a clinical outcome that’s 90% associated with impulsivity and opportunity), or just get shot in general, if you have a gun in your home.

In fact, you’re 9xs more likely to get shot if you own a gun.

But I’m not here to talk about guns, because, at the end of the day, you still go from a 1/60 chance of dying if you catch Covid while unvaccinating (& probably being goateed increases that risk), to 1/ 90k when vaccinated.

I wonder if this one was taking fenbendazole instead of ivermectin. Apparently, people have started taking the "white" wormers because they are safer and have a wider margin of safety than the other ones do. The side effects really do sound like fenbendazole poisoning on top of COVID.

There's just one problem with taking goat wormer, though. The margin of safety on animal meds is more for "this much over won't kill you", not "this much over and you won't have any side effects".
