        I'm not sure competition among all pharma companies and government researchers in universities and charitable endowments, as well as entire countries like Cuba, would be able to act in concert so well as to block a cure to something.

        If this is a thing - a real thing - then maybe because it is quite unusual (a drug for a totally different purpose), its hardly surprising that in the first year of a new epidemic that nobody has yet got to it. There's so many drugs out there, and the most obvious solution is to develop a flu-based solution to it - vaccines.

        Testing these things takes ages. There's not some simple approach to automatically test all medicine. It costs huge amounts of time and money to run a valid trial. So why would a random drug for an unrelated illness have garnered any time or funding?

            That's a very heavy post.

            I'm under no illusions that pharma companies want what's best for the world, I'm sure they are almost entirely dictated by greed and profit.

            However, given the scale of this and the economic impact worldwide, if there was an already available and effective treatment for this, I very much doubt that the US for one would have ignored it because it was widely available, safe and cheap? Is this all part of the world cabal thing where big companies and governments want to oppress and terrify the population into submission?

            I just don't get it

                This is where, IMO, some form of conflation/ socialisation and deep seeded loyalty to a system that serves us kicks in (rich white ppl basically). Polarity insists this is represented, almost with a cartoon villian bondesque evil cabal type baddy. The baddy is money. Economics. Consumption. Greed. Have to produce to have value. Education systems. The works. All part of the same gig, that makes it so easy to dismiss anything that makes us face up or question to a system that serves us. Impossible to even gain the space to do so, or the capacity to in the hectic pace of the way we live currently. I genuinely believe there has been a mass shift in general consciousness. I think everyone on some level feels it. And in the next five years, our world will be more different than even the most imaginative and lunatical can imagine. Like any cultic shit, and the world functions as a cult essentially, simply saying, hmm that's a little odd, can we acknowledge that, is always extended to something else (form of gaslighty stuff) , as opposed to simply, there really are a lot of odd features to this.

                  This is the dawning of the Age of....

                  JBravado that shift was briefly expressed in the 60s The LSD generation , ironically through drugs . Drugs control a lot of the world .If we all had access to LSD the world would indeed experience a shift in consciousness .However it's not going to happen as we are too divided . We conquer ourselves with this division . If anything we have been dumbed down by apps and technology as opposed to powering up. There may hopefully be a new renewal post pandemic but s long we are predictable and ego driven things wont change.

                  I do see a mindset change in how we consume resources and animal processing. Hopefully that route will finally bring about change . I'm not so sure about this crazy gender revolution though.

                  In short we all need some LSD

                  Happy Friday .

                        There is definitely a massive trend since WW2 (it's not something that just popped up recently) in over-medicating the Western population - and it came at the point where pharma companies started employing marketing, not to the general public who actually consume their product, but to fucking doctors.
                        We like to think of doctors as being saintly pillars of the community but some of the shit they are complicit in is outrageous. I'm especially thinking of the opioid epidemic in the US, which thank fuck we seem to have swerved. Still plenty of people sucking down daily doses of pills that they fundamentally do not need though.

                        This book about the Sacklers and the Oxycontin is a serious eye-opener in that regard.

                        All that said, the vaccine program for covid is probably the great scientific achievement of our lifetime. So yeah, balance.

                            My dad has a few good ones about drug companies in the good days depending on your view of it.

                            One conference he went to he was flown first class with my mum to Chicago and put up in a savage resort type place where the conference was going to be held.

                            when they checked into the room there was a nice welcome basket with champagne and an envelope with 2k in it for expenses.

                            This was for a newly minted consultant in the west of Ireland so you can only imagine what the heads of big hospitals in the us were getting.

                            That spend had to come from somewhere so the idea that pharma companies are crooked big businesses is not a wild conspiracy theory.

                            That being said the COVID vaccine being produced at cost by Astra and the others not going full gouge does make me think that in this one case they are working more public than stockholders interest in this case.

There are too many talented, hardworking and decent people in the scientific community to allow this to happen on a grand scale. There will be outliers for sure but we always get there in the end because the essence of humanity won't \ can't change radically. You only have to think of the medical medical miracles we have witnessed in the last 20 years to put your mind at ease brother.

                                                What is the goal of the lockdowns? We were told to flatten the curve have done so correct? 13 people in icu who have COVID. There will always be a certain amount of it about. How long do you think is acceptable for people the country to be locked down ? You are a smart well travelled guy surely you have to question this government ? Varadkar a medical doctor celebrates 800 jobs opening at McDonald’s shit unhealthy food and he thinks it’s great half the country is overweight as it is. There will always be some scary variant that’s super start out there that does not effect young people but like many illnesses targets the old and weak. If we as a country get vaccinated abs still have draconian restrictions will you stil say I trust tony holohan he’s very concerned etc. How many businesses are gone or will go mental health issues people are on the edge. It’s the blind faith supposedly intelligent people have in our government and nhphet that I find bewildering. Not so many years ago you couldn’t question a priest a teacher or a guard plenty of lies abs corruption there too.

                                                    Might have to be an outdoor pint the way this Delta variant conversation is going.

                                                    Anyone want to put a price on a delay to the indoor opening?

                                                      I've just spent 4 days on the beer after winning a county final at the weekend and didnt have a problem with any place I went to. I always preferred to booze outside anyway so this "outdoor dining" is perfect for me.

                                                      Also 1 place in Ashbourne has a covered area with full bar and tellys so its grand.

                                                      Swans in Curraha (beside Tayto Park) the pick of the bunch for a variety of reasons if anyone finds themselves in the area looking for a pint.

There will always be a certain amount of it about. How long do you think is acceptable for people the country to be locked down ? You are a smart well travelled guy surely you have to question this government ? Varadkar a medical doctor celebrates 800 jobs opening at McDonald’s shit unhealthy food and he thinks it’s great half the country is overweight as it is. There will always be some scary variant that’s super start out there that does not effect young people but like many illnesses targets the old and weak. If we as a country get vaccinated abs still have draconian restrictions will you stil say I trust tony holohan he’s very concerned etc. How many businesses are gone or will go mental health issues people are on the edge. It’s the blind faith supposedly intelligent people have in our government and nhphet that I find bewildering. Not so many years ago you couldn’t question a priest a teacher or a guard plenty of lies abs corruption there too.
                                                          I don't have blind faith in either NPHET or the government. I probably have more faith in the NPHET doctors than the government tbh.

                                                          We have definitely fucked some things up in our pandemic experience; the decision to reopen for a 'meaningful Christmas' being No 1 (and led to an awful Jan-Apr), but compared to our peer group of countries we have definitely performed above the average. Of course being an island gives us a massive inbuilt advantage so some of the credit gets removed there.

                                                          Let me pose two questions back to you and let's see if we can get anywhere:
                                                          1. Which peer countries do you think have performed better than us in the pandemic and why?
                                                          2. If you think the current restrictions are unnecessary, can you explain what you think the government's motives are?

                                                            They've got 2 outdoor areas. One is covered and would have been the old smoking area for the bar. But its large, they've done it up really nicely and fitted it out with proper furniture and it looks really well now.

                                                            Then they fenced off the car park, got a load of outdoor furniture and fixed it up like a big garden. Loads of space there for kids to run wild while you have a drink and you can still keep an eye on them.

                                                            They dont do food but I really couldnt recommend them any more highly to stop off for a drink. They've put in a huge effort.

                                                                  lVgNShNm.jpg

                                                                  https://imgur.com/a/sgxZ6mX

                                                                  I think in general you can veggie up the meals you usually eat with alternatives or just cook new things and see what you like, make curries, burritos, bolognaise, soups, roast stuff potatoes/veg, lasagne, pizza, whatever. It shouldn't need to be too different, just using a few different ingredients like beans,lentils, buts, fake meat things like that. It's not a big deal if you slip up or whatever, just try to find some veggie meals you like and start adding to it as you go along.

                                                                  For breakfast I have smoothies (I'm sponsored by myprotein now so use a lot of protein powder and that craic, in smoothies or pancakes etc), porridge (with things on top like seeds, peanut butter, berries), granola with yogurt and toppings, scrambled tofu, avocado toast, or straight up have a regular lunch kinda meal. For lunch and dinner it could be anything tbh.

Took them 4 weeks to sort my landline and they keep sending me routers...what a complete disaster of a company. To top it off, im still being billed by the previous crowd. Cant wait to see the first bill from Eir either. They still think of themselves as a semi state with guaranteed jobs, obvs comes from the top down. Zero effort in customer support.

Major groupthink going on and most people at my level think it's going to be awful but I'm the only one speaking up. So far all I seem to have done is make management double down. Polish the CV time or is there a productive way to say no to something I know is going to be bad for our customers?

Explained the issue and he agrees it's a problem, and we've set up a plan for putting the brakes on. Very important not to overegg the pudding now, but hoping to put a stop to this thing over the next few weeks.

Of course being an island gives us a massive inbuilt advantage so some of the credit gets removed there.

                                                                                                              1. Which peer countries do you think have performed better than us in the pandemic and why?
                                                                                                              2. If you think the current restrictions are unnecessary, can you explain what you think the government's motives are?
                                                                                                              The Danes 2500 dead. But the manner in which COVID deaths are reported is up for discussion as well. I have no doubt if I blew my head off with my automatic shotgun and had COVID that would have been the cause of death. They had 25000 at a football match last week poor Holohan must have cried seeing people enjoy themselves. There government has said they will abolish face masks when they get 70 per cent vaccinated except for public transport. The current restrictions are way over the top come on surely with 40 people in the whole country that’s less than 1 in 100000 in hospital with COVID not from COVID the most blinded person can see this overreaction. It’s easy telling people who have not lost wages or businesses here. Young people have made a massive sacrifice for older more vulnerable people the ones who get sick from it. The delta sub continent strain is whatever percentage more infectious but is it worse for us than the other older less cool one ? The government’s agenda I clearly don’t know I do know that regardless they will get there golden handshake pensions and won’t be affected. They remind me of the union generals at the start of the civil war petrified to make a decision besides keep everything closed. I think they are traitorous cunts and should be treated as such the old fashioned way. Can you imagine our debt in the next few years what sort of a country are the children now going to have ?

                                                                                                                  I think in general you can veggie up the meals you usually eat with alternatives or just cook new things and see what you like, make curries, burritos, bolognaise, soups, roast stuff potatoes/veg, lasagne, pizza, whatever. It shouldn't need to be too different, just using a few different ingredients like beans,lentils, buts, fake meat things like that. It's not a big deal if you slip up or whatever, just try to find some veggie meals you like and start adding to it as you go along.

                                                                                                                  For breakfast I have smoothies (I'm sponsored by myprotein now so use a lot of protein powder and that craic, in smoothies or pancakes etc), porridge (with things on top like seeds, peanut butter, berries), granola with yogurt and toppings, scrambled tofu, avocado toast, or straight up have a regular lunch kinda meal. For lunch and dinner it could be anything tbh.

                                                                                                                  You seem to have a high ratio of female to male followers

                                                                                                                      IMO there are aspects about solidarity, social protection and healthcare that we can be very positive about but if there is an economic collapse as a direct result of the money spent then any gains and the trends towards healthcare for all and universal basic income will get the blame.

                                                                                                                      Anti lockdown sentiment remains a tiny but extremely loud minority, it will disappear in time and whether it lasts a few weeks longer than absolutely necessary is irrelevant.
