I was hoping to get some discussion on my anecdote about the old lady in my building  :lol:. I imagine most of the 70+ are getting their shots but there will be some who refuse. I think it makes for a bit of an interesting moral debate.

From what I've been seeing and reading, it appears as though the youngsters are the most likely to be un-vaccinated.

 

My mom is 87 and she got both of her shots as soon as they became available.....but she was a hospital worker, so she might not be the best example.

I think it's ridiculous that she puts the onus on you to mask yourself. If she doesn't trust the vaccine, which she's well within her rights not to, she shouldn't yell at someone without a mask indoors without knowing their situation. Her approach is really hypocritical.

That's her own problem.  Good friend of mine is using a similar line of logic; he's not allowed to come visit me until he changes his mind.  Pretty hard to fix stupid at this point.

I think it was ITT somebody posted an article citing a study that found the demographic most likely to refuse the vax in the US was middle-aged men from the Midwest. Up here though I believe you're correct, it is the U-30 or 40 crowd that's most likely to refuse it. Not sure there was much of a difference between men and women though.

 

IIRC I saw something like 80 or 90% of the older crowd was getting their shot. The vast majority of them no doubt, but that leaves some of them without a shot and not all of them are declining it for medical reasons.

That was kinda my thinking too. I mean, I'm relatively young at 27 and I've got both shots. The 70+ crowd has been able to get their first shot for about three months now and their second for at least a month if I'm not mistaken. As far as I'm concerned, if you're eligible for your shots and refusing it then I feel no responsibility for your well being.

I might mask up around her for my own safety though.

Personally, I support a person's choice to make whatever decision works for them regarding this situation. Some consistency in thought is what would be nice. 

 

Refusing the vaccination because she doesn't trust it is her right, but why wear a mask and demand that others do as well? Also, she seems like a bit of an ass to argue with you that the mandate hadn't been lifted when it had been. 

 

Were you both in an elevator when the "discussion" occurred?

JO can be pretty dam funny at times but yeah, at times he can definitely be a bit much. I find his segments to be pretty informative though if you don't mind a hard liberal slant :lol:

Oliver is a much watch every Sunday night for me.

 

He seems to do one of those awkward sexual things every season, for comic relief. (a lot of his topics are pretty heavy) Last season, he had this running thing where he was crushing on Adam Driver. Of course, at the end of the season, Driver Face Times him and reads him the riot act....:lol:

 

This season he's doing this thing where every time he snaps his fingers, George Clooney magically appears, doing whatever he happens to be doing at the time. (very much like the Bugs Bunny cartoon, with Aladdins lamp)

I never watch his shows tbh, the only one I ever do watch if I do watch one is Trevor Noah, but it's been a while since I've watched one.

Now that Conan's show is off the air, I have no want to check out any late night talk shows.
