They didn't. Not unusual. Had delayed reactions after my second shot.

Same. Mildly sick for two days a week and a half after the second shot.

Riddle me this, about 10 days ago my boyfriend started having flu-like symptoms. A few days later we took the mandatory PCR test, he tested positive, I tested negative. A few days later I stared having the same symptoms, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, headache, random slight pain in the kidney area, knee pain etc. All rather mild thankfully. I went to take another test on the first day of my symptoms. Negative. Another one 6 days later. Negative again. He took another test after 8 days, negative.

So either his first test was a false positive, if that's a thing, or the ****ing PCR tests are insanely inaccurate.

A professor welcomed students to class by calling them ‘vectors of disease to me.’ He has been suspended.

Psy, do you think you could please stop linking stories from websites, magazines and newspapers that demand you sign up for membership before you can read the damn article? I can't get past the Washington Post's ****ing one-time offer to read! There's no cancel, ignore, continue anyway, **** off and leave me alone option at all. Completely pointless posting the link if nobody can read the story without signing up. Thanks.

They want you to buy a subscription for reading something you can probably get on CNN anyway. All the American papers do that.

I don't see any of those offers or pop-ups at any of the news sites I post links from and if I did I wouldn't bother posting the link in the first place. And I don't subscribe to any news sites at all, so I'm not posting links from a site that I subscribe to. Maybe you just need a better ad blocker for your browser?

No my ad blocker is good. But the Washington Post definitely put up that "join now" thing and would not let me go past it. Other sites have "warned" me I'm running ad-block software and asked me to "disable it for their site", which is, of course, why I'm using it, to disable it for every site that doesn't like me using it.

I didn't get one of those "join now" ads/paywalls when I was reading that Washington Post story. I do encounter them once in a while (along with those "please disable your ad blocker" requests) at various other sites but when I do, I just leave the site and look for the story elsewhere if I want to pursue it. Not sure why you got hit with one and I didn't.

Most of the papers will give you a limited number of views per month (I think the Post is one of them) then you get the pay wall. I get that a lot on both the Washington Post and New York Times not to mention tens of other papers.
