You don't trust something that's based in fact, and statistics, but trust you won't get sick based on hope.


What other thing in this world functions on similar principles?

California is the only dark green, nice.  Pretty hilarious NYC is red lol.

 

I just got my flu shot 3 weeks ago.  And was sick this past week.  Wasn't the flu but a common cold.  At least I didn't pay for the shot.

I had New England in my parlay.  That game broke it.  So B.S. they call that penalty on the first FG attempt.  I swear they just make up stupid rules on FG plays.  I'm still upset about it right now lol.

Because that basically never happens... 

 

People that get the flu anyway, likely got the strain that wasn't covered by the shot that researchers had predicted would be the dominant virus that year.

 

Coorelation doesnt always equal causation... it's staggering how many people don't realize that.


I totally disagree with this statement.

I was witness to a woman that had not been sick in over 20 years and never ever got the flu. She got talked into getting a flu shot by her Doctor and ended up with such a severe flu she had to be hospitalized and missed over 2 weeks of work. She swears she will never ever get another flu shot again.

And NO I do not believe she had the "virus" before she got the shot, her medical history of her body being able to fight the flu virus and thereby never getting the flu before the point of getting the flu shot, overrides it.

1st, I said correlation doesn't always equal causation.

 

2nd, New mutated strains happen every year, the fact that they fought off other strains or avoided it doesn't mean a whole lot. Stranger things have happened. Without hard proof, you can't rule out coincidence.

Hmmm, since the flu virus so easily mutates, and "new mutated strains happen every year", I would say her medical history of being able to fight off each new strain every year, pretty much is hard proof and not coincidence.

Nope, I base my trust on my daily regiment of a good diet (plenty of vitamin C), exercise, wash my hands regularly, wear weather appropriate clothing.

 

There are always alternatives.  Your logic isn't always the only logic...
