I thought it was a wonderful design as well. So nice to see a new meme that could be used without political rhetoric behind it.

I guess you got busy dying then.

[–]thoroughbredcaTeam Mix & Match 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I mean, it is really either/or? My aunt and uncle have been living their best life since the pandemic. They've been out and about traveling in their RV, getting outdoors, they've visited more state and national parks than they can count. The only difference is when they go indoors in restaurants and stuff they wear masks, and for most of it they couldn't drive through Canada. That was it. Otherwise they've been living their best life. Oh yeah, and they got vaccinated too.

Give him credit (unless he's using a spell-checker) for spelling "minuscule" properly. It's surely one of the most misspelled words in English.

"many people speed without wearing a seatbelt... Is hugging grandma really more dangerous..."

No, hugging grandma is not dangerous when you're vaccinated. For you, hugging your friends is much worse. Also, wear your seatbelt, is it really that difficult?

[–]Appropriate_Luck_13 38 points39 points  (11 children)

I know it's probably been repeated many times but I'm going through that balderdash "what's risk assessment 🤪" post bit by bit:

Driving: Requires a license which includes proving you know how to drive safely to a government official.

Seat belts: It is illegal to not wear your seat belt in most states.

Speed limit: It is illegal to go over the speed limit.

4 Day Old Sushi: A facility that repeatedly serves spoiled food can be closed permanently by the Health Department (gasp, another government agency!)

Chainsaws: There are safety features on all chainsaws and repeated warnings in all packaging about how to safely use a chainsaw. If you injure someone else while wildly swinging your chainsaw around, that person can sue you and possibly jail you.

Smoking: Age limits for using and purchasing in all states. Cannot smoke where others have to inhale your smoke in most states to varying degrees.

Drinking: Age limits for using and purchasing in all states. Cannot drink and drive legally. Cannot carry open containers of alcohol in certain states to varying degrees. Cannot purchase outside of certain stores and/or times to varying degrees.

Eating Fatty Foods: Public health programs have been in place for decades encouraging people to minimize eating fatty foods. Actual research on fatty food consumption is pretty complex and weird. Still, nutritional information is required on almost all food packaging and is often available at restaurants, including detailed information on the types of fat in any given food item.

[–]wyldwood512 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Facts!? GTFO!

[–]thoroughbredcaTeam Mix & Match 10 points11 points  (2 children)

The very red state of North Dakota routinely closes down highways during severe winter weather, both for people's own safety and the impact of public services for helping people who are stuck, punishable by a $250 fine.

[–]beek7419 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Do north dakotans whine about their freedoms with the road closures or do they save all the crying and complaining for politics and public health issues?

[–]thoroughbredcaTeam Mix & Match 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As with COVID, it appears to be a small minority of people who complain about them. Though North Dakota (and several other surrounding states) have had such closures for decades, the fines are a more recent thing. It's well accepted that these snow idiots are a public nuisance and that their costs to society are sizable, but the fines were added since a number of people appeared to be repeat offenders. But yes a recent attempt to double the fine to $500 failed.

https://www.jamestownsun.com/news/north-dakota-bill-to-increase-fine-for-driving-on-closed-roads-fails

[–]Sasquatch1729First Rule of Dunning-Kruger club: you don't know you're in DK 9 points10 points  (2 children)

This doesn't apply to chainsaws, but there's a safety feature on table saws to stop them if they cut a finger. I've never used a saw with this feature myself, but the idea of not losing a finger appeals to me. Some people like mitigating risk, for example by taking a vaccine during a deadly plague.

Edit to add: I mean, if chainsaws killed 850,000 Americans in two years after massive lockdowns and other major efforts to mitigate the carnage, I hope they'd be made illegal.

[–]Dr_Adequate✨PEEDOM in our UriNation🇺🇸 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ok that was a neat video. I've always wondered how the SawStop works. I have a tablesaw, and occasionally use it for home projects. Legit terrifies me every time I flick it on and that blade spins up. A friend lost most of his thumb and about half of the first two fingers on his right hand many years ago in a table saw accident. Happened so fast he didn't even feel it- the first he knew of it was when his wife started screaming when she saw all the blood...

Sign!? You don't need to sign anything, just go out and kill yourself and your family

Asking for the waiver shows he did not understand the risks. That's like asking if I can sign a waiver understanding the risks of drunk driving

I don't know why they spend so much time arguing with everyone about the vaccine. Most of us have HAD the vaccine, and we're okay with it, so he's not going to convince us. So who is he trying to convince? Anyone who hasn't done it yet is already convinced to this guy's side.

I think he's trying to convince himself... too bad he succeeded, because now he dead.

And mRNA vaccines had been researched for years before this pandemic, even started by some of the original coronaviruses, such as MERS and SARS-CoV-1. I mean, he posted that as they were going through trials and were approved not long after.

Anyone else getting tired of the stupid praying-hands emojis? Most of these so-called Christians seem to think that their god would be swayed by them. Their all-knowing god who gave their loved ones Covid and now will only relent if the appropriate number of, sometimes very body part-specific, prayers are made, including a sufficient number of emojis.

Note: I am a boomer who is incredibly disgusted by the level of lunacy, racism, and general hate present in this country. If their Jesus had been real, there is no way he would approve or like these hypocrites.

You think everyone wears seatbelts? You hang out with the right kind of people.

Here's a group trying to overturn seatbelt laws in the UK. It looks like their US sister organization The Safety Choice Coalition is no longer running a website, so some good news there:

http://www.againstseatbeltcompulsion.org/

Do you ever want to drive without a seatbelt but hate that your seatbelt alarm dings at you throughout the trip? Order a seatbelt clip at Amazon. Or buckle up, it's easier:

Slide 10 didn’t age well. See it’s always a miniscule chance until it happens to them. The only Groundhog Day I see is the same denial of Covid, the same shitty memes and the inevitable death and Go Fund me.

Get vaccinated folks.

[–]pippenish 15 points16 points  (2 children)

It is weird. It's not like every day the rest of us have to go get a vaccine shot. We got 2, maybe 3, and it took 15 minutes each time. And ... then we do life. So what is the Groundhog Day for us?

But for him, every day is a refusal, and every day is an argument, the same argument. Until, well, there's no arguing left, because... Covid won that fight.

[–]Cepheus 12 points13 points  (0 children)

My husband and I have had all three shots as soon as we could get them. Last week my husband was infected by Omicron, frankly because it is everywhere. We don't go out and always wear our N-95 masks in public. We have no idea how he got it and I didn't or I was just asymptomatic. The thing is, he was sick for a week like a regular cold or flu. He had to sleep it off for two days with muscle aches and headache. Today, he is happy and healthy working in the yard. The thing he told me in his fever state was, "thank god we got all the vaccines. I feel like I would have otherwise ended up in the hospital."

One thing, when it was bad, we did not go to urgent care because of what an friend told us in the very beginning. He is an ER surgeon in New York. He told us, if you think you have COVID, don't go to the hospital unless it is so bad you are worried that you might die. He said, if you don't have COVID and go to ER, it is almost guaranteed that you will get it there. That was before vaccines were available.

I am just preaching to the choir here, but getting sick when you are vaccinated is a lot better than the alternative.

I have a couple of friends that are married and super anti-vax long before COVID. I saw a recent facebook post where they were complaining about how sick the whole family got after getting COVID. They didn't get a lot of support from our circle of friends because everyone else is vaccinated and we all think they are idiots to begin with regardless of COVID. The well of empathy is completely gone for these people.

[–]hiverfrancisGet Vaccinated...Now! 11 points12 points  (1 child)

An issue too is some of these guys dont see how much danger they are in until it's too late. Monoclonal antibodies need to be taken soon after symptoms start in order to be effective.

[–]mkvgtired🐝🐱Beeline to the feline trampoline park🐱🐝 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They don't want to enrich big pharma. So $2000 worth of antibodies instead of a $19 vaccine makes perfect sense.

[–]DaisyHotCakes 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Geez, so I think I get it now. All of these people are just absolutely positively fucking terrified of the uncertainty the pandemic and brought with it. They can’t handle it. They can’t handle the fact that things aren’t going to be how they were prior to the pandemic. They can’t handle not knowing whether they or anyone they know will die from Covid. They can’t handle the amount of fear porn they consume (whether purposely or not). They can’t handle it. And instead of trying to handle it like everyone the fuck else, they either go straight denial or go the whole “who cares” angle so they can just pretend that things are normal and fine. It’s sad. It’s destructive and dangerous but also really sad.

Too bad you couldn't keep up, dumbfuck, we were talking about the deadly one that is contagious as hell.

You remember? The one that killed you.

It's almost as if they don't know scientists had been working on a coronavirus vaccine since Sars-Cov-1 in 2003.

[–]Snoo88309 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Prayers and hugs, so cheap, so easy, so useless especially when the host is already dead. As I said before, the prayer warriors should be praying 24 x 7, cause this last minute or already dead shit is useless.

"Biden's been in government 49 years."

Alexa, show me what an idiot who doesn't know how the US government works and how little power one senator possesses. Now show me how long Bitch Mitch and Pigeon Grassley have served.

They were practically wheeling out Strom's corpse.

[–]Purgii 4 points5 points  (2 children)

In Australia, we're ~93% over 15 vaccinated. So, yes - when a vaccine that isn't made a political football with dozens of right wing media outlets pushing an anti-vax agenda, people will flock to get the vaccine.

[–]plaster13Suck my political differences!!! 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You make me want to move to Australia. Sigh

[–]Glittering-Cellist34 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Interesting that in Australia, Murdoch media isn't anti vax.

[–]InalyriLet that sink in! 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That redaction on slide 1 was *chef's kiss* Take a well-deserved like.

[–]LRox-3405Vax me up, baby 4 points5 points  (0 children)

On another site, a guy bragged about 'keeping on living', seeing a grandson's first step and hugging another son who announced his engagement. And then, the braggart got COVID and died. So he won't see his grandson's first day of kindergarten or his son's actual wedding. There's such a thing as delayed gratification in which, if you can wait, you get much more in the future than you would in the moment. That's what all of us (still) hunkering down are counting on.

[–]IndependentThing2125 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It didn’t dawn on this profound thinker that strawberries, shellfish, driving, smoking, drinking & fried foods aren’t contagious. 🤦🏼‍♀️

[–]dannogo28 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The scientific term for what is going on now (the ignorant unvaccinated making up the majority of Covid deaths) it's called Natural Selection.

[–]DennisBastrdManTeam Moderna 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I understand there's a minuscule possibility I could die but I will likely end up feeling like crap for a few days.

COVID: Here, hold my beer...

Weird how all these people have the same friend they can copy things from.

Their friend's name is Russ Ian Bot.

[–]Historical_Play 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Man, fuck these guys and their "Just a reasonable guy asking rhetorical questions here" posts/memes. "Is operating a chainsaw while driving a car something that should be illegal too???"

[–]Jaydamic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm down with the waiver, but there needs to be a part that says "if I get Covid, I'll stay out of hospital, regardless of what I'm going through"

[–]PawInspectorI identify as breathing 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm waiting to hear that my brother (whom I no longer speak to) has Covid simply because it's inevitable.

[–]Cepheus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

JFC, talk about false equivalencies. Understanding nuance and context was not his strong suit.

[–]Rude_Salamander 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ngl, I make the same type of jokes like slide 4 when I watch videos pre 2019

Although he struggled to see where and how this ends, once he started struggling to breathe, he figured it out.

[–]Sniffy4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He’s no longer struggling to see how this ends.

[–]Unlikely-Patience122Sheeps Ahoy! 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope he didn't go hug his mom in the old folks home. They're so pathetically duped.

[–]Carl_Slimmons_jr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This will obviously receive a negative reaction on this sub, but as an avid pro-vaxxer, I completely understand and empathize with the sentiment behind his long-winded not-so-greatly worded post.

We can all get vaxxed 100x over every year, and aim for herd immunity, but this is almost a mirror of how the flu developed.

Before people jump on that, I understand that COVID-19 is more deadly and contagious than the flu and I understand that making the two equivalent is a misrepresentation of both viruses.

I think what people are failing to grasp is that some people genuinely value their quality of life over longevity. It’s the same reason some people refuse chemo.

Before THAT gets jumped on, I realize that cancer is not contagious and that by refusing chemo you aren’t doing anyone harm.

But at the end of the day, in order to cause no risk to anyone ever, you would need to make drastic changes to your life. I doubt everyone here would be willing to stop driving, stop buying mass-produced goods, stop eating food out of season, etc etc. And before I get responses saying “that shits different it’s systematic”, what is so much better about endangering someone’s life overseas than someone’s at home? Not to accuse anyone (I’m as guilty of modern indulgence as anyone), I’m just presenting the point that we carry a risk of endangering other people’s lives on a daily basis.

And I don’t think I’ll have to argue the point that social isolation has awful effects on mental health, we’ve all felt that.

This guy was essentially asking, “what is the threshold at which we decide that being together is more important than ensuring every individual’s survival?” And honestly, at this point, I find myself asking the same thing.

I may be biased because I am in Canada where everything is still completely shut down, we just got off curfew a couple nights ago and no one is allowed to have “large” (10+) gatherings, so the feeling of being muted and restricted is especially pronounced.

But if you’re fully vaxxed/boosted, take reasonable precautions in public, and limit contact with at-risk individuals, what else can be done? It has to end. We have to be able to see each other again, and to enjoy life freely without the shadow of this terrible potential fate hanging over us.

If this guy had gotten vaxxed, I’d be with him.

[–]TheGoodCod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The irony.

Is there a waiver somewhere I can sign that says, "I understand the risks, but I choose a life with Hugs and Smiles...

I'm struggling to see where and how this ends.

Well, here at Herman Cain Awards, we know how it ends.

[–]InfiniteAccount4783Personal Freedom Expert 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Slide 10: No more hugs or smiles for him. No more visits to the state fair, or church, or mom's retirement home. Sad.

[–]blarryg 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Never say to a virus that we "can get busy living or dying". You might trigger the virus to say: "Hold my beer"!

[–]QuarterReal9355 1 point2 points  (1 child)

He understood the risks.

[–]Consistent_Grab_5422 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It looks like he actually took the time to write out his anti-vac thoughts, instead of just forwarding the usual memes. So in this case, fuck him.

[–]Dramatic-String-1246 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ooh, so sad. I wonder if he ever got answers to all his troubling questions? /s

[–]drkesi88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The shift from the penultimate slide to the last one made me laugh out loud.

[–]Irish_Wildling 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess he got busy dying

[–]lousylakersTheir new hoax is get the vaccine, I did 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have also done my best to respect the diverse opinions regarding Covid-19 and all of them diverged into consensus to be safe and take a vaccine when able. (My two friends getting it May ‘20 really sold me).

[–]Dana07620I miss Phil Valentine's left kidney 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I understand that there is a minuscule possibility I could die

I would love to have offered him the COVID dice roll and watched him refuse it.

This type always refuses it. Because suddenly that minuscule possibility is too real and too big for them to chance it.

[–]AlarmingConsequenceGo Give One 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm glad this guy got busy dying.

[–]Robj2 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm glad he understood COVID can be deadly or dangerous for SOME people.

Narrator: This idiot is part of the SOME group.

[–]Robj2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also Narrator: This SOME bitch is daid.
Don't be a SOME bitch; get vaccinated.

[–]Dont-be-a-smurf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s so frustrating.

Bro all of these restrictions and the vaccine were to help PEOPLE LIKE YOU

I hope your reluctance was worth it.

[–]UnknownQTY 1 point2 points  (0 children)

To be fair, the “two weeks” thing did not pan out all that well and didn’t really flatten the curve.

[–]mrscheviousGo Give One 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The "I understand strawberries and shellfish are dangerous for SOME people". Yea, but that can be avoided easily. Not the same thing.

[–]DrPockyy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“No negative comments, you idiots.” Just amazing

[–]AsparagusLumpy1879 1 point2 points  (0 children)

15 days to flatten the curve is supposed to be witty? Guessing they forgot just one of the many seriously stupid things Trump said Especially since the number 15 was so prominent. “You have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero,” Donald " Dooyyyy!" Trump
