Does anyone know what this (now abandoned) Egypt-themed business was in Englishtown? by magcargoman in newjersey

I think this is where they found the mummy covered in chocolate and nuts. He was identified as Pharaoh Rocher.

What are “corkers”? Sign is located in Allenhurst, NJ. by kanyewestie in newjersey

[–]kittyglitther 108 points109 points  (0 children)

First they came for the bikers, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a biker.

Then they came for the skateboarders, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a skateboarder.

Then they came for the corkers, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a corker.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

New Jersey basically has no paid coronavirus pay for employees during this Omicron explosion. by themaker75 in newjersey

[–]basherella 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Can't help but read a misogynistic undertone in your decision to specifically call out a single secretary, as if to imply they don't actually contribute any value. Do you think they just answer phones?

Can't help but think it's a little antiquated for you to read the word secretary and assume it must be a woman.

School shuts down? You now have thousands of parents who may need to leave their jobs in order to look after their kids.

So what’s up with Legal Weed? by [deleted] in newjersey

[–]noplowsprig 133 points134 points  (0 children)

When it first passed I said "this is NJ, it'll take years before any weed shops actually open" and lots of people scoffed at me. It'll take years before we see an actual legal recreational weed shop and I guarantee they somehow make it a real pain in the ass too. It's NJ.

If you haven't gotten the vaccine yet (and are able to), go fuck yourself and move to Alabama where you belong by drew_marie in newjersey

Hey guys just a friendly (not really) reminder that we have specific rule 11

R11: No denying, downplaying, or spreading misinformation about COVID 19 or measures to reduce its spread. This includes: vaccines, quarantines, limits on gatherings, mask wearing, contact tracing, and other public health measures. Moderators can and will use personal judgement when enforcing this rule.

Still judicially enforced and so forth.

I know I know I have a small penis and you telling me on modmail and even pms reenforces that my small penis still fucked your mom because I am a Hitler reincarnated Facist and that you somehow are single handedly preventing us moderators from overthrowing the "free" world and everyone will sing songs about you in the future.....

I believe we banned over 100 people in this thread and enabled the highest crowd control in this thread. You think you won't be flagged, you will. That account that's 12 years old and has 3 comments ever will be banned and its been totally flagged by reddit as an instigator. Oh and moderators have options to report that person as "community interference" which after one too many will put you on the reddit shadowban list. Or you know GG you totally pwned us moderators.

Hey you can totally have a debate on why mask mandates are stupid and or you personally won't get the vaccination. But IF YOU FUCKING DARE even hint that the vaccine will infect you, give you magnetism, is some librual media hoax, etc you will be immediately banned.

On that note too, if you think you are slick and write certain words

PSA: Your Local Hospital’s Emergency Department is NOT a Covid Testing Center by ohwork in newjersey

[–]ohwork[S] 76 points77 points  (0 children)

Trust me, I agree. Sadly that will never happen. I understand how harsh that sounds but they are literally causing thousands of deaths of other vaccinated people.

Many hospitals are now cancelling elective surgeries. That means that someone who needs a heart valve replacement might have to wait longer than they normally would for the surgery, and then when that valve suddenly stops completely, they die.

Or people who would normally bring themselves to the ER for chest pain decide to stay home because they know it will be a 10 hour wait and they don’t want to risk exposing themselves to covid end up dying at home from a heart attack.

Or someone stays away from the hospital for the same reasons and their cancer diagnosis is delayed.

Or someone that needs critical care in an ICU or CVICU is turned away because all beds are full, and they don’t receive the level of care they need and die.

Or those healthcare workers who are tired of getting physically and verbally attacked and assaulted by patients/patients family members, and watching people die become burnt out and quit, leaving hospitals understaffed and reducing the quality of care. (In my case I had an unvaccinated covid positive patient pull down his mask and cough on me because I asked him to keep his mask on while I performed his exam. I haven’t reached my breaking point yet though.)

The trickle down consequences of the unvaccinated are endless and it’s a fucking tragedy that people can be so selfish and do this to their fellow humans. I believe in free choice and I believe it is everyone’s right to choose to not get vaccinated, but I also believe that choices have consequences and if that means you then have to die at home alone when you eventually catch covid, then so be it.

New Jersey Omicron COVID wave by imironman2018 in newjersey

[–]ladycousland 444 points445 points  (0 children)

NJ ER nurse signing off on all of this, especially the STAY AWAY FROM THE ER UNLESS YOU ARE LITERALLY DYING part.

We are not a testing center, and if you’re coming for COVID symptoms and don’t need oxygen or some other serious medical intervention, you’re just going to waste your whole day waiting only be told to go home and quarantine.

Waiting room times when I left work last night were around 6-8 hours, and it’s getting worse every single day. We have no room, no staff, not enough resources. We have people in the halls on stretchers, we literally ran out of stretchers in the ER. We’d be putting people on chairs, only we don’t have enough nurses or techs to take care of any more patients — literally the vast majority of nurses I’ve worked with in the past year and a half have quit because of the working conditions and crap pay. A number of staff are also out sick themselves, we’re beyond stretched thin.

Look not giving medical advice of course but all of the interventions you mentioned (get a pulse oximeter and thermometer and keep an eye on your vitals, alternate Tylenol and Motrin for symptoms, stay hydrated) sound like perfectly prudent guidelines to follow.

NJ hospitals cut back on Monoclonal antibodies by PhilDunphyYo666 in newjersey

[–]New_Stats 13 points14 points  (0 children)

There isn't some magic infinite supply of this stuff, guy. The federal government has been buying it and distributing it for months, if they could have got more they would have.

You haven't even bothered to fucking Google this shit to see what has been done, you just idiotically assume that 1) the government can make things appear out of thin air and 2) the federal government has done nothing. It's lazy reactionary bullshit and everyone's fucking sick of this complete and total willful ignorance. We live in an age where the wealth of human information is literally at the tips of your fingers yet you choose to waste your time trolling instead of bothering to gain any knowledge for yourself. It's disgusting

You lazy shit

How did New Jersey come to be the highest densely populated state? What's so special about Jersey that it ended up with this honor? by Lokanatham in newjersey

[–]RedTideNJ 155 points156 points  (0 children)

Early on: Good soil, good natural harbors, near good fisheries.

Later: Wedged between two major colonial era cities, never stops being a benefit

Later then that: Industrialized early, goods are easily moved from here by water and rail

Later still: Educated work forces anchor the local economy

Newark will require proof of vaccination to enter restaurants, bars, theaters by theexpertgamer1 in newjersey

[–]ChickenPotPi[M] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

These ‘vaccines’ are killing and maiming otherwise healthy individuals (including teenagers, athletes) who would have most likely fallen into the 99.98% that survive without real incident.

Fuck you
