    Well - our family now has a Covid casualty. My wife's grandmother caught it in the Edmonton Good Samaritan Care Home and passed 5 days after testing positive. Kinda opens your eyes a bit. My kids are doing online learning for the 1st quarter of school as they're scared to go.
    I'm sorry for your loss bro.

    April-May was the first time my wife and her co-workers felt they could provide proper care in a longer time than most could remember or had ever experienced.
    Either people were afraid to visit the ER because of covid, or they decided to stay home because it wasn't life threatening and made an appointment with their doctor - which is how it should be. I'm guessing more of the latter. Ladder? Later?

    He isnít wrong in that, while this definitely isnít the flu and affects the body in different ways, that for the overwhelming majority of the population contracting a severe covid outcome is somewhere up there with getting hit by a bus
    Speaking of unknown long term effects, we don't know the long term effects of smoking pot, yet the feds legalised it because of an election promise. Smoking cigarettes gives you a high probability of cancer, along with the countless other diseases. You don't even have to smoke, you can just as easily die from second-hand smoke which kills hundreds of Canadians each year. We don't do enough to eliminate exposure to non-smokers. What about the 64% of Canadians who are overweight or obese along with the long-term health risks of inactivity and food/sugar abuse? It seems like we've chosen that covid is so dangerous we must change the way we live and function as a society, when there are things we can do to save Canadians in other areas, that we don't care about. People abuse our healthcare system because of their own choices, like poor dietary habits, lack of exercise, smoking and abusing alcohol. However god forbid someone catches coronavirus and could or might have unknown long-term effects.

    You actively chose a lifestyle. Unless you lick every door handle in public, nobody chooses to infect themselves with COVID except for human challenge trial.

    There are people who actively try and infect themselves with various diseases including HIV. Obviously a tiny minority though - look up 'Bugchasing'.

    Not trying to be judgmental for once, but lemon parties are way safer than chicken pox parties.

    Yeah me too! My sister and I both got it at once. When my kids were little they both did too as well as a couple of their friends who played with them before they had any symptoms. I have also had measles which I found to be more annoying than the pox, but maybe that was because I was a teenager then and was just more aware of it being a pain in the ass. Funny enough, I was immunized for measles a few months before catching it. Just didn't work for me.

    Did a serology / antibody test for fun (mostly just curious) and still negative. Had much worse allergies this season than in the past and was curious if maybe it was related but guess not.

    We already know the long term side effects of smoking pot. It's virtually the same as smoking cigarette's... which are still legal. Without banning smoking cigarette's, you don't have a leg to stand on for banning joints.

    I don't think that's the argument he was making but ok. People keep trying to call out the comparison arguments, because they think it isn't relative since people don't choose to infect themselves with covid. Which is irrelevant to the argument, but I digress. If people want something comparable, the one I've been seeing is that Tuberculosis still kills 1.5 million people a year, spreads the same way covid does, but is actually curable and preventable............... No fucks given by any body about all this tragic loss of life. Yet we are pretending covid is the worst pandemic disaster in the last millennium.

    I have no idea what you got as your search results are personalized to your search history. I get a young woman washing lemons in a tub while her friends are making lemonade for their picnic. She is probably better known as tubgirl.
