I am very thankful that Peak Stupidity has been able to safely let the subject go for a while. Let's see, it's been just over a month since the last post with the Kung Flu Stupidity topic key, but the last one about the hysterical panic fest, the real "issue", as it were, was back on June 3rd. I read this article on a site called Medical Express a couple of weeks back:
Man, who woulda thunk it? So, with this virus, see, if you get exposed to doses of similar virus, maybe in small amounts, your body can, like, fight off the current virus going around. Whaaaa? I took biology, but that was a long time ago. I do remember something about "building up your immune system" from my Mom, along with a roommate who told me how he used to throw hamburger meat on the ground before eating it* occasionally while on the hiking trails to build up his immune system, but I thought these were all old
A study by Stanford University School of Medicine investigators hints that people with COVID-19 may experience milder symptoms if certain cells of their immune systems "remember" previous encounters with seasonal coronaviruses—the ones that cause about a quarter of the common colds kids get.The middle of the article gives the details about the antibodies, T cells, peptides, and so on that I'm sure I should have heard about from the HS Biology teacher, if I hadn't been perusing the female reproductive system chapter so much during class. It really is amazing stuff, all these complicated goings-on that happen in our bodies while we are only concerned with the female reproductive system part, eat all manner of crap, and go around with our mouths and noses all exposed to the AIR, and occasionally leave all manner of other things exposed.
These immune cells are better equipped to mobilize quickly against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19, if they've already met its gentler cousins, the scientists concluded.
The findings may help explain why some people, particularly children, seem much more resilient than others to infection by SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. They also might make it possible to predict which people are likely to develop the most severe symptoms of COVID-19.
After the science behind the idea of building up immunity is explained, we read:
As the pandemic progressed, Davis mused, "A lot of people get very sick or die from COVID-19, while others are walking around not knowing they have it. Why?"A description of the observational analysis performed follows. ("There's that fag talk again.")
Memory cells are by far the most active in infectious-disease defense," Davis said. "They're what you want to have in order to fight off a recurring pathogen. They're what vaccines are meant to generate."From everything I've read this "vaccine" is a lot more than your simple small dose of active or "dead" virus material that will bring out the right antibodies, memory cells, what-have-you. Speaking of memory cells, have people all lost those memory cells of theirs that had the knowledge about how the human body deals with viruses?
Killer T cells whose receptors target peptide sequences unique to SARS-CoV-2 must proliferate over several days to get up to speed after exposure to the virus, Davis said. "That lost time can spell the difference between never even noticing you have a disease and dying from it," he said.Right, so best to have been exposed to something before, which I have been. So, wait... then it wouldn't be so prudent after all to walk around forever with a face diaper on, because my immune system may not be ready for the next strain of virus? But, but, Doctor Fauci told me ... This is the guy that may have cured the common cold forever, as long was we only take the masks off for quick bites at 6 ft. Amazing, we can cure the common cold, but we can't even send a man to the moon ... anymore!
But, Uncle Fauci told me ...
Uncle Fauci told me, stories of a lonely,
virus with a deadly life to lead.
A narrative was dusted. Economy was busted.
the scientists are trusted while the story bleeds.
Now, on TV at night, no one cares....
Now, the TV at night, went insane!!!
Oooh, it's a sunny day outside my window...No, this Aerosmith song, one from the most excellent Toys in the Attic album from 1975, has squat-all to do with the rest of the post in my opinion too. It's just that once I wrote "Doctor Fauci told me..." it got in my head. Peak Stupidity has featured this band only once before, in the post called The Origins of Rap. Instead of the well known Walk this Way from the same album, we embedded the obscure song Adam's Apple. They do deserve to be on here. Some don't like Steve Tyler's style, I guess, but they put out some pretty good music back in the day.
Steven Tyler – Vocals, keyboards, harmonica, percussion.
Joe Perry – Lead guitar, rhythm guitar, slide guitar, backing vocals, percussion.
Brad Whitford – Rhythm guitar, lead guitar
Tom Hamilton – Bass guitar.
Joey Kramer – Drums, percussion.
* I couldn't get myself to do that on purpose, but I do remember an incident in which two slices of pizza slid right off the paper plate onto the floor of the busy pizzeria restaurant, unfortunately, face down, and I went ahead and ate them up for lunch with a colleague. No bad effects resulted, and keep in mind that this was the good stuff, NY style. Whaddya' supposed to do? You don't just go asking Mario "may I have some more" like you're Oliver Twist or someone. He was probably in with the mob, maybe a made pizza man.
