A very thoughtful reply.

I think you are a better/more empathetic person than I am. I don't reach out or worry about taking care of others very much.

But I am very sensitive to concepts of fairness and justice.

It infuriates me that sellouts go about their lives and purposefully exclude you under strawmen like "well, you made a choice".

No, you NPC, I didn't make a choice. Some tyrants made one and depersoned me.

Well normies love that meme "Freedom of speech isn't freedom from consequences".

No, actually you NPC, that's EXACTLY what it means.

Thanks. I was referring to the thread title.

I got confused about 90s music.

I looked it up after I posted and I was thinking about The Verve song but confused it with another CD cover art.

None of my family members are doomers at this point.

I do find it very disappointing though how none of them see any problem whatsoever with people like myself being completely segregated from society while they continue to frequent establishments enforcing vaccine passports.

And the solution to their cognitive dissonance is just not to invite me or not to tell me at all about social events even taking place.

Their justification is "I'm not going to stop living my life"

Durden was reportedly paid $80 per day to work as a substitute teacher from Nov. 8 to Nov. 17 at Crest Middle School in Shelby, N.C.

....

A Cleveland County Schools spokesperson told WBTV that Durden met the requirements to be a substitute teacher in the district because she is over 18 years old and graduated high school.

A substitute teacher policy shows that preference is given to teachers that are licensed but that the "school system will employ substitute teachers as deemed appropriate by the administration and in accordance with State Board policies."

It seems a least part of the problem is that the school board is going cheap and cutting corners by paying unlicensed substitute teachers like minimum wage Burger King employees.

Oh shit dude, I replied and didn't even read the username to see that it was you posting.

I wouldn't worry about the "sound mind" part.

If they really wanted to push things, they would have to request a third party "capacity assessment". But these are usually reserved for the elderly with dementia or people who are mentally disabled.

My neigbour is constantly traveling around doing these assessments. They must be pretty boilerplate as he's a marriage counselor with no medical or psychiatric training.

I don't dislike Peterson.

I just wish he could answer a simple question without going down a five minute rabbit hole of biblical and communist philosophy verbal diarrhea.

I was pretty disappointed that he cucked so quickly for the vaccine as well, especially since he already had natural COVID in ?Serbia.

But then again, he is of advancing age and his health status was a lot more grim earlier in the year.

I'm a physician.

The list in your title is pretty all-encompassing. The only other exceptions would be infectious diseases that you can be compelled by public health decree to take directly observed therapy like Tuberculosis.

For everything else, a person with normal capacity has the right to refuse all treatment or workup as long as the treating physician believes they are of sound mind and understand the consequences of your actions.

So, if you can elaborate to your physician that you understand the natural history of your disease (ie the expected course without intervention) and are willing to accept these risks, there's not a whole lot else that can be done to you even if they act butthurt.

I watched a lot of the trial this week.

I'm fairly certain Kyle was with a group protecting a garage/dealership.

There was another group guarding the gas station that he interacted with, but only after he got separated from his patrol mate.

Kind of like how "97% of doctors" agree with whatever COVID BS they come up with next because they fire and pull the license of anyone who steps out of line.

That's an interesting concept.

In genetics, it's more-or-less accepted that the Y chromosome is a shriveled up useless chromosome and geneticist males only have one functional sex chromosome (the X chromosome) while females have a functional copy and a backup.

Which is why so many sex-linked mutation diseases disproportionately affect men (it only takes one mutation in the X chromosome to express the disease).

But in terms of real world phenotype, there definitely seems to be many characteristics and advantages beyond the concept of male being one X, female being two.

I've taught female family members the "break the vacuum seal" bottom slap and the "dent the lid with a bread knife" techniques so many times over.

Still, they can't do it because "my hands are too weak". Too weak to tap a bread knife?

Some women just never want to learn how to fish.

This seems more like a stunt to gain more OnlyFans subscribers than a serious legal case with merit.

Well, I never owned or received a Windows boot CD-ROM with any of the desktops or laptops I ever purchased retail from 2001 onwards.

So I find it hard to believe it was "just the budget notebooks that didn't.
