Grinch time

Busy busy busy…

I and RooBeeDoo are currently editing stories for the Christmas anthology. Has to be quick, it needs to be out later this week in time for the Christmas rush. That’s going to be worse than usual, all post and delivery drivers are overloaded this year.

Also, tonight is the last night of the author payments quarter for Leg Iron Books and there is always one who buys a book in the last five minutes before midnight. Always. So that has to be sorted too.

This anthology has ten authors, thirteen stories. At least it matches Underdog Anthology 13, so that’s not too bad. My story is, naturally, on the dark side… well on the moonlit overcast winter night dark side, if I’m honest… but I’m not alone.

So I will be silent here for a few days.

I did notice, however, that there seems to be a massive debunking of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine for Covid. You know, the one that is actually a traditional style vaccine. They are really pushing the autoimmune disease mRNA vaccine and have now admitted that it uses a virus vector for delivery. Well it had to, there’s really no other way to do it.

They claim the vector cannot replicate.

So how did they grow it?

If I absolutely have to have one I’m taking the Oxford one. I am not touching either of the mRNA ones.

I’d rather not have one at all but it’s increasingly looking like that might not be an option.

  1. It remains an option for me. You can take it or leave it. I’m not doing this. All I have to do is stay indoors, or at least within the bounds of my garden.

    I don’t like people very much so it won’t bother me if I never see another person.

    Twenty five years ago it might have mattered but no one was interested. So you can stuff it now.

    Corona Virus has suddenly made me interesting? I don’t think so.

  2. The BBC are making the following statement about the Pfizer/Moderna vaccine in an article on its website today:

    “Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna’s vaccines use bits of genetic code to cause an immune response, and are called mRNA vaccines.
    These do not alter human cells. They only present the body with instructions to build immunity to Covid.”

    Is this bit about not altering human cells an outright lie?

    • Now, there is a lot of info that’s been condensed out of that BBC statement.

      Messenger-RNAs are always being transcribed, from your own DNA, all the time, as required by any operating cell, to produce the proteins and other entities that it requires at that time.

      However, m-RNA CAN, under certain circunstances, be “retro-transcribed” into DNA, and in some cases this ends up in the human genome. “Retroviruses” do this thing regularly.

      The other point is “which” human cells, if any, might be “altered” in such a way. If it was immune-system lymphocytes (white blood cells, for short), then we’d be in trouble.

  3. Dad told me tonight that he wanted the vaccine and I said you’re rushing in arent you. I said give it a few months at least to show up with side effects etc. Im resigned to probably taking it. ( not that I want to but I want to travel Whether I do or not is another story)
