As of May of this year, the average monthly rent for a one bedroom in the US is $1,827. Almost every complex/landlord requires you to make x3 the rent a month to apply. The average US income is $31k a year; less the half of what’s needed to apply.

Fuck this clown world.
Yeah my dude, it's almost like unfettered capitalism is a corrupt and oppressive system that hampers social mobility and progress. Got me scratching the old noodle here.

Daily reminder that if a woman is raped and impregnated at gunpoint the assailant with the gun is now *legally* more protected than the rape victim, according to SCOTUS.

I guess It’s a good thing overturning Roe vs. Wade doesn’t do anything against abortions by itself otherwise you might have me here.

okay, but think about what you just said there

if you're willing to draw a line of equivalence, joking or otherwise, between overturning an election and overturning roe v. wade, DESPITE the fact that you are not opposed to abortion, then it follows that you'd probably be okay with drawing any line of equivalence—even if it betrays your own beliefs—as long it allows you to dunk on the libs, right

i just can't imagine having no qualms with abortion, and making that post
You do realise red states will immediately criminalise abortion via trigger laws when Roe v Wade is overturned right?

Either you're a soup brain that didn't know this or you think it's acceptable for millions of women that don't live in blue states to become medical refugees. Not quite sure which is worse.

I remember the munchkins on old Bnet frothing at the mouth over Reach when it first came out. Looking back now it's aged like wine and the hate was totally undeserved given the subsequent games that followed.

Skyrim is not nearly as bad as it's made out to be. Is the combat clunky and the gameplay very handholdy? Sure. But to call it a poor elder scrolls or even a bad game in general is pretty unwarranted when you consider the amount of content it has.

You yanks tend to be a bit behind us bongs when a new wave kicks off, so if its any consolation we've reached the peak in the UK and case rates are stabilising. The doomsday scenario of the Omicron wave was never realised and with the exception of a relatively fair bump in hospitalizations, it seems Omicron isn't nearly as bad as delta or alpha.

But who knows, you guys are lagging behind in vaccinations and boosters in comparison, so you might be in for a kick in the teeth again.

Must say, I have been thoroughly enjoying Pattinson's career progression into the giga chad of kino. The Lighthouse, Good Time, Tenet and now this.

The two trailers have been great, not really sharing other folks' sentiments here. Looks like Matt Reeves has managed to blend Affleck's murderverse Batman with the aesthetics and cinematography of the Nolan trilogy.

Colin Farell channeling his inner gabagool energy is surely worth the price of admission.

If you're that skeptical about vaccines then you might as well just question the entire body of medical science while you're at it.

That wouldn't actually be a bad thing. The intended use of the scientific method and in general practicing science encourages skepticism for the sake of refinement.
Skepticism is fine when it's applied to things that we're not yet 100% fully aware of yet. It isn't fine when we have a verifiable, ironclad solution to the hell we've been through the past year and a half that could potentially send us all back to square one if we let the floodgates open on mistruths.

This is an interesting way of ignoring what I actually said, which was that medical experts in the UK are questioning mandating vaccines for 12-17 year old boys as the vaccines apparently are showing them more risk than COVID, and natural immunity is more lasting and effective than the current vaccines.  Did you not read this?  You seem to be responding to me in ways completely unrelated to my post.  Actually, that said you didn't quote me, so tell me if I'm responding to you in error.
Medical bodies have suspended the Astrazeneca vaccine for under 30s out of safety reasons whilst implementing other vaccines to compensate. What exactly is your point here? The proper medical procedures are being implemented to mitigate risk whilst ensuring that vaccine intake is on top of the virus breaking through the chain of immunity. You do understand how immunity and vaccines work, right? Or are you that much of a brainlet?

I'm not sure what in my post you think this is contradicting or addressing
You plucked some random ass figure out of the air and I'm simply responding accordingly. Vaccines benefit everyone across the generational lines.

Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, etc, essentially the current online public forum will certainly do so and have done so.  I'm not sure where in my post I suggested this backwater forum was doing so?  This place does not matter, the important places certainly do.

Sorry, I must actually be responding to you when you didn't respond to me, because I didn't mention any misinformation in my post other than the misinformation spread by Fauci when he lied to congress on gain of function research.  Or the misinformation spread by Fauci when he lied to everyone and said masks were not effective at stopping the spread so that people wouldn't rush out and buy masks, creating a shortage for medical workers.

Something something fauci, something something George soros, something something da joos. Yawn.

Yeah, you literally didn't read my post and you're not responding to it, because I said right in the post that I and almost everyone else who has been paying attention have already been vaccinated.  I'm not anti-vax.  I've had my Pfizer shots, and I've had every other vaccine for every other thing.  I am completely consistent.  You seem to be delving into some sort of insane tinfoil hat conspiracy theory that anyone who hasn't drank the Kool Aid being poured down their throats by Jimmy Kimmel is a scary anti-vaccine operative looking to sabotage public health.

Sorry for giving you this big response when you obviously didn't actually read or respond to my post.  Nothing you offered was contradictory or contributed new information that would detract from the points made, so I can only assume I've made a substantial and embarrassing gaff here typing out a response to your post here, when you weren't even referring to mine.  Apologies but it will give you a cool exclamation mark up in your top corner, we all love those.
Nothing of substance is being argued here. You've had the shot and you're crying about people taking the shot. Bore me later.

It's really interesting hearing the perspective of someone who thinks we live in a Jason Bourne movie. Think you forgot to take your Brain Force supplements this morning.

Parking that bizarre conspiratorial diatribe aside, I reiterate my point once again. 5 people have died in the UK from the vaccine, all of whom were probably about to kick the bucket due to age or had pre existing conditions, out of the hundreds of millions of doses administered.

Unvaccinated people are 11 times more likely to die from covid than those that are vaccinated. We're at the point now where we can confidently proclaim that the pandemic is now a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

Nobody is banning you from questioning the efficacy of vaccines. You're literally doing it now on a backwater gaming forum. The reason that media outlets are averse to airing these opinions is because it's misinformation. Misinformation is dangerous. How many times have we seen some middle aged wine mom in the news regret their decision to not get vaccinated because they read a Facebook post claiming the vaccines give you seizures. All the while their lungs are collapsing in on themselves in the ICU.

See, I'd have more respect for you and the anti vax "truthers" if there was even just a micro granule of consistency to your opinions. If you're that skeptical about vaccines then you might as well just question the entire body of medical science while you're at it. Every medical treatment has risk involved, from dollar store painkillers right up to chemotherapy.

>heart problems

See, this is my beef with these right wing rags that disgorge misinformation for clicks. "Heart problems" is such an amorphous and vague term that doesn't really elucidate what the actual condition involves.

A known and considerably rare side effect of Pfizer and Moderna is yeah sure, heart inflammation. Despite the alarming terminology, and what these toilet paper pieces don't tell you is that heart inflammation as a result of vaccination hasn't been proven to be morbidly serious and can be treated with rest and a couple of painkillers. Very few cases actually result in requiring serious medical treatment.

How about some actual data? The EMA analysis of cases found:

Pfizer-BioNTech - 145 cases of myocarditis and 138 cases of pericarditis out of 177m doses given

Moderna - 19 case of myocarditis and 19 cases of pericarditis out of 20 million doses given

Five people died. The review said they were all either elderly or had other health conditions.

The UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has also been investigating the link.

It reported: "A consistent pattern of cases occurring more frequently in young males and shortly after the second dose of the vaccines.

"These reports are extremely rare, and the events are typically mild with individuals usually recovering within a short time with standard treatment and rest," it added.

Take the soccer mom ideology out of my thread please.

Take note of pericarditus. It's a disease I picked up back in november(which is apparently a possible obscure side effect of covid)

Carditus isn't lethal, but there's no cure for it. There's an operation where they scrape enflammed tissue from your heart but it's a low success rate. It might just be because my heart's already damaged, but the carditus is constant and it throttles the fuck out of me. It straddles me into a fine line between being disabled, but mobile enough not to qualify for disability.

Carditus comes in many different flavors of severity as well. Although the chances are low from getting it from the pfizer shot at least, it's a really shitty mid-tier side effect to roll. I'd honestly tell you that if I had a choice to take a vaccine to possibly stop me from getting enhanced covid but get carditus as a result, I'd just ask them to kill me instead.

You know, we can talk mathematical chances and odds all day long, but life's showed me repeatedly that no matter the odds you never take chances on anything. One percent chance doesn't give a shit about you when you're the sorry fuck who rolled it.

I admit the toilet paper pieces are garbage, but I think dahuterschuter's reservations touch onto an issue that's not talked about. The advertising campaigns about the vaccinations aren't being straight with people.

I challenge you to go out and talk to people and ask them what they think "immunity" means when they get the covid shot. You might find a higher number of people think they can walk into a cloud of covid particles and they won't get sick. They'll also tell you that the adverts mislead you about taking the vaccine when pregnant, stating that it is "safe" when there's actually no proof yet. At least out where I am, that's the case. A massive amount of mistrust stems from the government's shit ass handling and presentation of everything.
I'm really not sure what you're point is here? All medicines have a cost benefit analysis attached to them, including the most mildest of treatments. You can get potential liver damage from paracetamol, aspirin can thin your blood etc.

The question that medical professionals then have to ask themselves is; do the benefits of said treatment outweigh the potential risks? It's pretty much irrefutable at this point that the yielded benefits of vaccines dwarf any exceptionally rare health risks they may pose to an incredibly small demographic of the population. I don't understand why people have to treat vaccines as this special enigma when they probably take a plethora of other medications unfazed.

Hello, what is situation with vaccination  in U.S.A? Is there a lot of side effects and if there is what are they?
Death, miscarriages, possibly spike protein accumulation in various areas of the body.
