Re: USB power pack

Another +1 for Anker. I have two, had them for a few years now and they're both holding up well!

Re: Who's getting the vaccine

Mrs K has read that a reaction to the vaccine shows you have a good immune system, which is good for me, but less so for her. Not necessarily. If your immune system has seen the virus before, it will have a stronger reaction to it (so you will have more side effects), which is also why there appear...

Re: No jab, no job

More nonsense from the Covid fanatics. I still haven’t decided if I’m having the vaccine yet, things like this make me more suspicious, I’m sure I’m not alone with that thought process, I’m less likely to do something if there is coercion or threats regarding freedom, whoever is pushing this agenda...

Re: No jab, no job

There's literally no reason to not have it (unless you have had allergic reactions in the past). Not having the vaccine is a selfish idiotic thing to do. I'm glad someone finally said it. What seems to be lacking in some of the above posts is that with freedom comes responsibility. And it is our re...

Re: No jab, no job

If you want the vaccine, have it, If you don’t want the vaccine, don’t have it. If you’ve had then vaccine you’re all safe and happy, I would presume. Why would anyone who has had the vaccine be concerned about wether or not other people have had or are having it? It’s not a legal requirement to ta...

Re: No jab, no job

Just have the damn vaccine (unless you're prone to allergic reactions to vaccines)

Re: Mix and Match Covid Vaccination

Also, a quick google on the author's name reveals he's a bit of an anti-vaxxer. I've not dug into him (Peter Doshi) any more than a cursory google search, as I have actual work to do and i'm not a researcher. But this is the blog post I read on him: https://www.skepticalraptor.com/skepticalraptorblo...
