Seeing as a lot of funeral homes around here are also very conservative, I had no idea if it was a joke or just politics.

I hoped for one, but feared the other.

Michael Flynn was apparently ranting madly yesterday that someone told him "they" were going to put vaccine in salad dressing.

I don't even like ranch stuff much, but still agree it would be an upgrade for most meds, yeah.

The typical response being "Have you seen the sort of people who are vehemently antivaxx? If you're going to sneak it into them you're not going to do it with salad dressing."

Counterpoint: Ranch dressing isn't really for salad, it's for wings.

If we could administer vaccines by mouth they'd have been in the corn / water / coke since before we all were born and no-one would bat an eye because only change is scary.

I don't care in the least if this story from a friend of a guy who knows another guy from work's brother who's aunt-'s lawyer's friend's cousin is totally fabricated, it's still perfect.

Not that I've never indulged in choosing to believe things about The Others, but the internet being 90% unexamined bullshit is actively destroying the rise of democracy. We should probably knock that shit off.

I'm not quite sure that "rise" is the correct word here.

:D

In any case, I don't really think I was presenting it uncritically. I just didn't type anything as banal as "Here is a thing. It may be true and it may not be true. Sourcing is obviously dubious. It's funny either way though."

As a bonus, those are looking like conventional small-molecule drugs, of the sort that the entire pharma industry is built around - so if there's not some particular gotcha in the synthesis, any reasonably capable contract manufacturer can crank these out in job lots, far faster than mRNA production and in many more countries. Also a whole worldwide population of process chemists to let loose on the production-optimization job.
