    That's a very memorable story which I would also say is a short story but reading is like hiking. Some may think a 3 mile hike is arduous but it helps to humor the person to encourage further...

    The vaccines are rated by efficacy (which is different than effectiveness). Even at 95% efficacy, that leaves 5%. (1 in 20, no work for you) Given the current widespread prevalence of the virus...

    First pic, something came down on the tree and tore the bark off that face, never fully recovering on that section. Drove the leader down and may have stayed on top of it for a bit of time. The...

    I think he would cook them not pour boiling water on them. At least half the container is air, so extra bulk.

    Let's clarify a little and then leave it at that so we don't have a big Vaxxer anti-Vaxxer debate. Effective and safe vaccines widely accepted will make the trail better for everybody.
