Supply isn't an issue, so it's not really an either-or situation.

A Facebook friend posted it and I found it funny. I assume it is some pre-interview quiz, so perhaps that would influence what one should believe is the correct answer. If the interviewee was a little more ambitious, he might have answered the third one.

Yeah, I saw that meme and thought it was like saying "Instead of men getting prostate exams, women should be getting mammograms." Um, like, how about BOTH things should be happening?

It's not a matter of the shots being available, it's a matter of the focus of policy. The main focus has been mandating shots to those that don't get benefit, rather than figuring out how to get shots into the arms that do need it. The meme/post was about mandates. Instead of forcing little kids to take the vaccine, use that energy to track down elderly people that haven't gotten boosted yet, or that large number of over 75 that haven't gotten any shots yet. Those people have 1000000x more likely negative outcome from COVID than a small child.

But yeah, in your example, there are plenty of cancers that aren't talked about that kill at a higher rate than the more "popular" ones.

This is exactly the kind of internal soundtrack I imagine plays on loop in the mind of every coinbro and NFT drone.

I understood the concept of giving out clean needles to reduce the spread of diseases like AIDS, but handing out clean crack pipes? Is this a concern with carbon build up in old crack pipes?

Your question is answered in the bulletpoints at the very top of the article. You don't even have to look through a single paragraph!

Yeah, I'm too lazy to actually click through, but it's great that you did. But based on the article, it looks like they are trying to move people from injectable drugs to smokable drugs as the main reason, but yeah, still not sure about disease spreading crack pipes needing replacements.

It sounds as if the goal is to spread fewer diseases:

HHS said that the kits will serve to limit the risk of infection - typically users smoke out of glass pipes which can lead to cuts and sores that become infected with diseases like Hepatitis-C.

Handing out pipes is also intended to prompt users to smoke rather than inject themselves with some substances, like meth, as injection is far riskier.

Oh, I thought it was a joke and was commenting that it wasn't really a funny one. Fuck, I don't even know what news is real or a parody anymore, I'm getting mentally exhausted with all this shit.

I listened to that 20 second music clip. Any lingering doubt I had that the Western World was going to collapse completely in the next 10 years has now been erased.

Do you live in a world where little kids take care of themselves without interacting with adults or elders? Or maybe you think most are raised in the fashion of The Jungle Book?

Listening to someone rhyme “vag itch” with “bad bitch” may have you shaving off a year or two…
