Some of the boomers I know have been banging on about climate change since the 1980's.

Those boomers just pretty much did gently caress all about it. Well that's not entirely fair. some started very effective white middle-class activist groups like Greenpeace, WWF, CND, the Green Party, Ted Turner's Captain Planet and such. Those effective groups who have really been able to sell that conservation message over the last 30+ years.

Sometimes I work from home. Had to sell pretty much all of the cattle due to the current drought. Means I have some more office time though which is good because they have a shower there that isn't reliant on rain water.

I suggested to my elder boomer parents, who both still work preventing the melins from two good paying jobs - one in education, the other in medicine - that they might want to wind it down a bit and sort of isolate themselves from the riff-raff for a bit because you know, they are the viruses target group.

Iíve sold 90% of our livestock and if the southeaster doesnít provide at least 100-150mm of rain over a few days next week then I will probably get rid of all but a couple.

winter feed is pretty much gone.

water is at a critical low level.

we have about 5k litres for the house left, probably 3k of that is actually safe to drink.

ground is drier than it has ever been since records began.

shits getting real. we need these animals to eat once we get quarantined for several months because of the beer virus

Iím more worried about the outbreaks of mumps, measles and rheumatic fever that seems to be spreading through this land. Iím not over 65 so I donít really care about a contagious flu. I am more worried about god drat measles mumps and TB

the antibodies we create that recognise pathogens require unique antigens to identify. once our immune system can identify an antigen it can usually take care of it very well

our immune system is mental. it was described in university as something like a random protein generator and those proteins will ďstickĒ to things and are antibodies and they act like tags for other immune cells to swallow up. it was described as if the protein stuck to our own cells it could tell so it didnít use them (this always felt like an obscene simplification when it was taught) thatís what an autoimmune disorder is, where our immune system tags our own cells for destruction. itís possible type 1 diabetes results from the body creating antibodies for some kind of virus and those antibodies also bind to the beta cells in the pancreas so that the immune system attacks the beta cells thinking itís a virus. itís possible we will be able to immunise against this in the future

rheumatic fever can lead to a similar situation there the antibodies will bind to cells in the heart (to do with the valves?) and so the immune system will attack the heart so thatís why you get this weird situation where rheumatic fever leading to CV problems

the H and N in flu strands like H1N1 represent the two most common antigen families expressed on the flu virus, although they arenít the only ones

Iím not sure why some immune responses last longer than other though. why we can give the immune system dead cells for some things and live attenuated for others

and itís also worth nothing most viruses donít target all our cells but just a limited number. things like coronavirus attack the respiratory cells.

measles is nasty because it attacks our immune cells itself and is one of the worst viruses because it can ďeraseĒ some or all of your immune ďmemoryĒ


most common cold are either rhinovirus or coronavirus. why this one in particular is much more deadly is something Iíd like to understand


also sometimes in healthy people we can get situations where our cells lyse and release huge volumes of viral particles into our body and our immune system sees this as an extreme attack and can have something called a ďcytokine stormĒ and lead to shock and this is how you get very healthy people dying of flu, different to vulnerable people dying from respiratory failure from the flu


just some ill-remembered info for ya. itís probably all wrong now
