um, excuse me everyone, but i thought it was maybe supposed to be that vaccines would protect us from having to mask and distance.
but now this lady who writes for “nature” and the NYT is saying that we probably need to wear masks and distance to protect the vaccines!
humans laugh at cats for chasing laser pointers, but man you should see what you guys look like trying to follow public health advice…

Sunscreens work better when you wear a big, floppy hat and stay indoors.
It’s probably true that the inoculation works best if you’re not exposed to the virus.
If vaccines worked, we wouldn't need masks. If masks worked, we wouldn't need vaccines. But since neither of them work, somehow we need them both. Have I got that right? I don't want to be cancelled or anything.
Finally—some honest reporting! They’re finally admitting this has all been about protecting the vaccine [manufacturers] from us pesky people.
Thank goodness there was a "PhD" behind Amy Maxmen! Otherwise, I might not have trusted her educated opinion...
Then. What. Is. The. Point. Of. The. Vaccine.
Vaccine efficacy probably depends on: profound stupidity; mass hypnosis; abject fear; OCD; Munchausen-by-proxy syndrome; Event 201; mainstream Mockingbird media and their shock-and-awe tactics; heaps of cash from Gates Foundation; big pharma and its lobbyists; censorship and suppression of alternative viewpoints/treatments; teachers' unions; power-tripping public 'health' officials, megalomaniac governors; sacrifice of kids; etc., etc., ad infinitum.
But that's EQUITY for you: equality of OUTCOME.
Safe and effective.
My umbrella works better if I use it indoors.
The government is criminal and as such illegitimate. These "experts" and "scientists" are paid off, and as such are criminals. These criminals will never ever stop until they are stopped.
And she's trustworthy too:
"During a Twitter debate about COVID origins, she claimed never to have met Peter Daszak, president of the EcoHealthAlliance, and when confronted with a photograph of herself side by side with Daszak, made the false claim that the picture had been “faked”. She subsequently corrected this false claim, but did not apologize for it." (via wiki)
Author: "Wow, this sentence really makes a definitive point confirming my preconceived notions!"
Cognitive Dissonance: "Sure does! Highlight the first half of that sentence and click send!"
Second half of sentence: "...although any synergy between masking and vaccination is speculative at present."
Author: "Case. Closed."
Another deranged PhD trapped in the mass formation psychosis. But the little boy is ADORABLE!
If it weren't so infuriating it would be laughable. You know what else makes the vaccine effective? If you move to the Arctic by yourself and have no human contact; also if you are dead, they are 100% effective. Assholes.
Latest preprint just released: Cessation of Respiration Improves Vaccine Efficacy to >99%
I'm actually A-O-K with them masking and distancing. You go your dingbat way and I will go my way of freedom and sanity.
The COVID Dumpster Fire has proven, if there was ever any doubt, that PhDs can be complete morons. (That was never in real doubt, but sometimes you just need an example or two!)
I noticed she has a PhD. It must be in that newly discovered (18 months old or so) branch of science known as "WTF."
And WE'RE the science deniers?
PhD = Phretty Dumb
My birth control works better when I don't have sex.
If I get a tuberculosis vaccine, I don't have to wear a mask or distance myself from people who have tuberculosis. That's the point of vaccines, they stop spread of disease by stopping you from getting infected. The fact is, is that these new vaccines simply don't work. They're defective products, and they're a fraud, and a very lucrative fraud at that, the makers are raking in billions, and they're immune from civil liability.
I've said it before, the virus would be gone if everyone would just hold their breath for 20 minutes at the same time. Zero people from then on would get it.
One idea I have been experimenting with to wake people up one person at a time is to use paradoxical interventions. It is important to note that you should not try and beat the enemy because you cannot. You cannot reach them logically or rationally. Some years ago, we used to intervene with families by using this technique. In one sense it is prescribing the symptom. For example, if working with a couple who are fighting all the time you might suggest they do more of the same because surely the fighting is a sign that they love one another, and more fighting will bring them closer together. In fact, you would suggest that they schedule their fights on alternative nights at a particular time, say 7-8 pm and keep notes of the issue raised. Of course, this seems absurd but in fact it makes the fighting conscious and something they now choose to do rather than do it automatically. It brings an awareness to the conflict in a way no rational approach would be able to, and because of this awareness it changes the dynamic of their fighting.
I think the same thing might work with those who are enthralled by mass formation. Let me give you an example. In an opinion piece in the NYT a commentator said that parents who do not vaccinate their young children are not responsible people nor are they good parents. Here’s my ‘paradoxical’ reply.
I totally agree with you! At our elementary school there is a proposal (widely supported) to make unvaxxed children wear yellow (for caution) wrist bracelets to distinguish them from the vaxxed kids. The unvaxxed will watch the classroom over closed circuit television from another room. At recess the unvaxxed must remain segregated and not play with the vaxxed kids and at lunch the unvaxxed kids must eat together outside. We think the school board will pass this proposal and most of the teachers are all for it.
Now maybe one person or some people who support vaccination policies will read this and think, “My god that’s extreme or even crazy.” Now once they have that thought you have broken through their hypnotized state and a possibility exists for them to re-examine their own bat-shit crazy behavior.
Wherever you see pro-vax comments posted denigrating the unvaxxed or the un-boosted take it further and use paradox to first agree with them and then take it a step(s) further. You will be surprised that nothing is too crazy to say. Moreover, try it in conversation with someone who is ranting about the unvaxxed. First, always agree with them and then offer some more extreme measure of dealing with the unvaxxed using their comments as the springboard. See how clever you can be. Please post you interventions to the site below and the results so I can keep track of what is working.
Here’s the full article
We should introduce these folks to the fact that, especially in Winter, being tarred and feathered 1) reduces the need for additional garments and 2) warms you better because you’re closer the the source of heat.
The "vaccines" work best if you never encounter Covid_19 at all. Studies show that no exposure to the virus confers high immunity leaving only the risk of injury and death from the "vaccines" themselves.
Your seatbelt protects my seatbelt.
I mean, you just can't make this cr*p up! It's exasperating, and if it weren't so deadly fu**ing serious, it would be hilarious. It reads like satire, except it's not. Am I the only one who feels like I've been zapped through a wormhole into some awful alternate universe???
To make the vaccines 100% effective, they should consider wearing thick plastic bags on their heads and tightly cinching them round their necks.
Cute! (The little boy, not the Madmen PhD obvs)
Example number bazillion why I am embarrassed to admit I have a PhD. At least I'm not an epi or MPH. I had almost forgotten about Lipsitch. Thanks for reminding us how much he sucks.
Clever career girl, that "Amy Maxmen, Phd". She has happily signaled her willingness to participate in lying with statistics, i.e. pretending to see "higher vaccine effectiveness".
* Door lock efficacy and burglar alarm efficacy probably depend on having multiple armed guards on premises 24x7x365 to catch all trespassers at the perimeter of your property.
* Toilet efficacy probably depends on not pooping into toilets after very big meals and on putting used toilet paper into a trash can.
* Non-stick frying pan efficacy probably depends on using a double boiler or microwave oven to cook your food.
* Anti-virus software efficacy probably depends on never connecting your computer to a network and on not plugging in any portable media device, e.g. a USB memory stick.
* Umbrella efficacy probably depends on keeping your umbrella dry and not using it outdoors when it's raining.
* Efficacy of anti-fungal and anti-mold additives in bathroom paint probably depends on never taking any showers and on keeping the bathroom door open at all times to ensure maximum airflow.
* Sunscreen efficacy probably depends on...
And so on.
“Probably” is doing heroic work there.
“Never confuse education with intelligence, you can have a PhD and still be an idiot.” - Richard Feynman
The bigger question is How in the name of all things holy and sacred did she get. PhD? Clearly stupidity is not a barrier to a fine career!!!☘️
This has to be a kind of confirmation bias. The NPIs were not effective in reducing Covid hospitalizations or deaths.
But somehow now they are magically going to rescue vaccines, which are evidently not as effective, nor as durable, as they promised us early on?
A fundamental precept of ancient wisdom was this:
“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.”
It’s really critical to distinguish between things that are under our control and things that are not.
There are severe limits to our ability to control a highly infectious respiratory illness. Our public health scientists just can’t accept that, so they engage in delusional behavior—trying desperately to control things they cannot, and causing enormous collateral damage in the process.
How did Pfizer and the FDA miss this.
How can the vaccine see if I am wearing a mask? If I wear 10 does it work better?
Tell me again why we need to vaccinate? These gizmos are worse than useless.
This just in: Scientists disclose that bullet proof vest effectiveness is enhanced if police avoid interaction with armed suspects.
You should check out the purple mask graph here: https://stevekirsch.substack.com/p/masks-dont-work In one graph, it summaries how stupid the entire world is. The graph was derived by getting the git repo with the Bangadesh study data from the authors, then doing the plot. It validates UC Berkeley Professor Ben Recht's work on this. Ben got it right. We validated it.
I really should know better than to look. Her twitter feed is a koolaid drinker's dream.
We should recognize a new winter Olympics event, in honor of the choice of China for the next Olympics: the Wuhan Gold mask - awarded to the country that imposes the silliest, most damaging, most insulting CoVid regulations. For now, my vote is for Australia with Canada and the UK tied for the Wuhan Silver mask. Can we get NBC to cover it?
I read an excellent comment on reddit. Some vaccine enthusiast from the UK was saying that the reason the vaccines are failing is because the vaccinated now ignore other covid measures.
Another day, another asshole...amy maxmen needs an enema, nuff said. phd my ass.
Wet pavements causing rain.
Mass psychosis. Mass freaking psychosis.
(Or Mask Psychosis if you prefer.)
would you look at that, even AP news is jumping on the bandwagon. telling the masses that the virus is “evading” the vaccine is probably as close as we’re gonna get to them admitting the vaccines doesn’t work.
The vaccine works best with quarterly boosters, hazmat suit, N95 even inside to protect yourself from family members and pets (shudder they have the rona!), permanent social distancing in your home, have everything delivered to your house, never go outside, and for good measure nail your windows shut as aerosolized corona could come in through your windows. The horror!!!!!
The UK has moved to introduce COVID papers, either vaccine proof or proof of a lateral flow, but through the hugely centralized NHS app.
I watched the debate and it was nothing of the sort. Group think, no original thought, no one willing to question the orthodoxy - just more masks, more "vaccine", more fear, more NHS panic.
I read they've added "vaccine" mandates for health staff, so they're destroying the NHS to protect the NHS. Or people will comply and the country I read about in history books no longer exists.
I fully expect lockdown in the new year. Winter is just getting started and it's clear no one is ready to accept vaccine failure.
I remember when having a PhD meant that you are an intelligent and serious scientist. I remember when Nature was a serious science journal. Truly embarrassing times indeed.
