    No. It absolutely is not. RT is complete garbage.

    Any legitimate source (such as a study) that is saying it doesn't prevent infection? Yes, we know that none of the vaccines are 100%, but that has always been the case with vaccines.

    Vaccines are terrible and a Chinese plan to infect the world with a virus that can be activated by a high energy pulse. No one should get the vaccine. I would definitely not sign up for it.

    That is not how you are supposed to read the data. They tested over 180,000 people and “thousands” still became infected, numbering 6.6%. Pfizer claims up to 95% efficacy which would yield a 5% infection rate. That is in the same ballpark of what Pfizer states and indicates that it is acting as designed. RT reports data like this because their articles are usually unflattering to the US and it’s products, especially given that they have the competitive product Sputnik V. Most likely the infections of the 6.6% were much less severe than without having had the shot. Sometimes “media” can report the truth and still leave a negative impression.

    2021? Jeez, some hope of a quiet wet ang sa bay bay just as the sun sets over Negros. A gently simmered prawn molee (its Indian) bubbles away over smoky coals as the wife dons her silken bedtime threads and beckons sutrily (is that a word?) as the last gasp of a Don Papa slips past the tongue.

    Nope. I’m consigned to the ever present symphony of chain saws, karaoke, tricycles, screaming bata and the bleat of Noys kanding as they munch their way through the lovingly prepared veg patch. There is no hope.

    Nay has a boil, ate Maribeth has igit, Kuya Juan who should be on duty has a ‘family emergency’ (the manok seem to be bemused by Philippines Got Talent n haven’t laid), Noy Paulo has fallen off the wagon (again) and is begging kuarta to purchase Emperador before straightening things out with the neighbours wife. Um, according to Paulo she’s a fine looking woman who shouldn’t be married to that worm. He’s gonna brave it and tell her. My money is on the broom and two or three broken limbs. Que sera. Should be entertaining.

    A firefly drifts past. I reflect. As Wreckless Eric once wrote: when I was a young boy, my mama said to me: there’s only one girl in the world for you. And she probably lives in Tahiti.

    Near miss C. At least I got the tropics.

    Great writing skills - I almost gave you an off-tropic but you saved it with your very last word. Sneaky.

    Talking about vaccines, if somebody wishes to go to the DOH FB page this afternoon and find the schedule, you might go an idea (and report back to us :-) I cannot do it in the 2:00-5:00 pm time frame.

    I have complete faith in the Pfizer vaccine. Let's not forget, this is the company that made Viagra.

    If Pzifer can raise the dead, I'm quite sure it can save the living!

    So what about 2021 then?

    Mirror mirror on the wall, will we be able to travel in 2021?
    Will the World run out of ink to print bank notes?
    Will people still care about Climate change?
    Will we finally find out if the moon is made of cheese?
