"Her family said the 44-year-old was treated for blood clots days after her first jab. She died on Friday."

What do you find especially tragic about it? That evil scientists killed her?

incompetence, arrogance and lack of empathy kills much more than all evil combined, just check a few of your dinner plates ;-)

Sounds like a monologue interior TBH..
We're all going to die of something; doing nothing is also a decision.

The only reason I got the jab is because I want to travel at some stage.

"TBH" The Black Hole do not kill on purpose, to be honest; only by accident! But yes also I suspect it has a monologue interior!

The extra risk of blood cloths due to covid vaccine (or probably most vaccines for that matter) is negligible for your age group. In mine it grows significantly (besides the risk of death from covid is much lower than from flu). Not to mention the vaccine escape mechanisms which people in my group likely enable with potential detrimental consequences for all. We are not all created equal!

Btw, So far I travelled without problems without any vaccine.

Brothers in crime.

A man went to Heaven and got a tour from Petrus. He showed a room, here's Jews in that corner, the Moslems over there etc. You get the idea.
Man: what's behind that big wall?
Petrus: oh, that's the Catholics, they think they are the only ones here.

Steven Weinberg, 88
physicist, Nobel Prize laureate

Prize motivation: "for their contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles, including, inter alia, the prediction of the weak neutral current." 

My physics curriculum missed him completely. I had his 3 tomes at home. Opened one. Once. Rest in peace.
