    This is a cookbook, too.

      “Serving Man”

  • cb

    It’ll be interesting to watch, via drone cam, thousands of highly pissed off Haitians willingly get on planes to return home. Thousands more in the pipeline on way here no doubt. Just another day in the Covid Zone.

  • JTC

    Beautiful little vignette, and a deadly accurate indictment of the weaponizing of a designed disease. But carry it further, much further into the darkness that is…let’s call it a malevolent cabal…with operatives in every facet of societal control and an incredible episode waiting to be told and exposed.

    The covid thing is truth, but that little Serling intro is a thing of beauty. The B&W cameo and that entire first paragraph are a template, with the power and panache to be a whole series…worked for Rod.

  • Kafiroon

    Great scene!
    But in our case, this Twilight Zone episode will Not end about 40+. minutes.

  • Pamela

    At least they haven’t gotten to the Serve Man phase with the crap they’ve been cooking up.

    • Bill G

      But are the soi-disant “Noble-Thinking Greens” upset by Soylent Green?

    • JTC

      Henry rightly called it a cookbook right at the top.

      Probably more virtual than literal, but to mix some movie metaphors, who knows if their godhead is of the Morlock persuasion…certainly plenty of eloi.

  • Jim Smith

    Nicely done, Chris, and oh-so-accurate. My favorite touch, however, is that cigarette….

    Each measure from vaccination to masks has a risk reduction ratio. For the first approximation they can be applied one on top of the other. If A gives you a 1 in 5 chance of infection and B gives you a 1 in 20 chance of infection then together they give you at least 1 in 20 and possibly 1 in 100 chance of infection. Masks give you a massive 8 in 10 to a modest 5 in 10 risk. Separation with poor air circulation at only 6′ gives you maybe 1 in 2. More separation with outdoor air circulation (and Sunlight) give you very high protection. Multiply them together with a little judgement thrown in where it appears measure 1’s method and measure 2’s method overlap. Masks probably are not worth it on a personal basis. They MIGHT reduce spread of the disease enough to avoid overloading hospitals. as is happening in some cases. (This is likely due to Biden parking infected illegal aliens in red states.)

    Vaccinations are a complex affair. Worldwide data indicates they reduce your risk of infection dramatically but their strength seems to die off with time. They provide different levels of protection to risks of infection, hospitalization, ICU residency, and death. Stale vaccinations still offer between 1 in 2 and 1 in 12 protection from infection. The provide much more protection from hospitalization. And as much as or more than 1 in 1000 level protection from death. Note that officials in some countries have declared the disease to be endemic and presume everybody will get it. This means between 1 in 10 (delta variant) and 1 in 100 (original) of the people who are not vaccinated today are going to die if they cannot manage to survive with other measures until after their vaccinations.

    Note that if you can get it Ivermectin is (or should be) very cheap. India brews it up in millions of doses batches. India reports it helps prevent COVID infections and reduces their severity when used as a prophylactic measure. This does not prevent infection by any means. It limits the probability of infection. Note that Ivermectin seems to have help India avoid COVID infections destroying the nation. Get real Doctors advice on the dose. Do NOT use Internet doses. Some idiots presume if a little bit works a lot would work better. Alas, a lot has unpleasant side effects.

    Hydroxychlorquin also appears to work if administered at the first sniffles. I don’t have much more than anecdotal information on it.

    Vaccinations have risks of their own, around 1200 deadly reactions in around 240 million doses administered. That is about 1 in 20,000 per dose or about 1 in 10,000. COVID kills many by the same side effects as vaccination, with a higher probability by a factor of 1,5 to about 8.

    The delta variant of the disease SEEMS to be hitting younger people more severely. This may be an artifact that they are generally the unvaccinated high exposure low lying fruit for opportunistic infection. I note that the lists of death rates for COVID infections by age seem to have flattened out dramatically from the original experience.

    Add this all together. Confirm the facts. Visit pages in India, Britain, New Zealand, Israel, Oz, all of Europe, and even the US. Look at reports as well as trends. Ignore the politicians. They blather without understanding. Then make your decision. Good luck with it. Oh, also keep score of the people around you who have suffered an infection and who have died of it. The number of people I can only remember today indicates to me that this thing is not a hoax. And my more suspicious nature suggests this was either biowarfare from the beginning or was converted into biowarfare after an accidental release. It seems tailored to attack Americans, specifically the more conservative among Americans.

    And, no, I am not going to suggest an action beyond perform the research and make your own decision and live with it.

    • Norm

      An excellent, factual summary. None of the scary woo woos from either side.

    • Greased Shadow

      JDOW: excellent factual presentation. Unfortunately anti-vaxers can’t do math and have great trouble with logic, I am cancelling my long-time subscription due to the comic’s trend toward conspiracy-science.

      • Roland Deshain

        Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out! There IS a conspiracy you idiot!

    • Halley

      Thanks jdow. About the hoax part – my BS meter sprung past 11, not at the news of the virus (virus gonna virus), but the minute it became clear the outbreak was being exploited (suspiciously as if by plan) to tank the Trump economy. From March 2020 on, the Wuhan bioweapon was the DNC/MSM political weapon (if it wasn’t from the start) and that’s where all the hoaxing was and still is. And exactly as first felt 3/20, the enormously dark power the Left has shown in inflicting this evil is something we’d all hoped years of MAGA success had at last decapitated, but clearly hasn’t.

      As an old Cold Warrior my Professional Paranoia alarm went off the moment I found out the disease was only found in Nature in bats.
      The Paranoia? We think Covid has to be a weapon against the West, and it is, but has anyone thought that it is primarily a weapon against Communist China itself?
      Here in the West we think human life is sacred, but in the lights of Communism human life is State Property and rightly is disposable at the convenience of the State.
      Covid kills, almost selectively, old people, who are in fact _burdens_ of the State _not_ assets.
      Lock-downs, invented in prisons in the first place, are notorious for amplifying the effects of airborne disease by increasing the initial dose exposure. And let no one be fooled, the Communists were the first to apply the procedure to their own.
      Covid is a bioweapon and is not an accident.

      • Bill G

        It’s an excellent weapon for tyrants, killing off the ‘nonproducers’. It’s quite efficient at that.

    • JTC

      Following TLDR version says it all, only question is what to do about it…

      β€œ…biowarfare from the beginning…tailored to attack Americans…”

      Everything else; treatments, jabs, masks, restrictions, stats, is all white noise that distracts from the fact that genocidal war is once again being waged against us, and the question of our response -if any- to that root cause, as opposed to exclusively and exhaustively debating and dealing with the effects.

      I mean, did we concentrate 100% on assessing damage, treating casualties, refloating boats and rebuilding Pearl Harbor, or did we do all that while actively bombing the fuck out of the Japs?

  • TBeholder

    If seat belts work, why speed limits? If speed limits work, why belts?
    You still don’t understand probabilities and believe in “silver bullets”, do you?

    • Kafiroon

      Same reason we do in race cars. Sooner or later someone else will do something stupid or just lose it, and you can pay the price in violent crashes. Lots of times the culprit can be you. Love 5 harnesses and roll cages.
      Especially if you are upside down.

      • TBeholder

        Exactly. The name of the game is redundancy.
        Obviously, efficiency is bound to drops a lot when doing the stupid thing is made mandatory at some other point.
        As in, cardboard cars. Or “dealing with pandemic” by herding the diseased to nursing homes.

    Marc Scott Zicree is doing “The Twilight Zone” shorts on his YouTube channel. He wrote “The Twilight Zone Companion”. He also wrote an episode for “Star Trek” when it was good and is making his own show “Space Command”. He calls it the Best “Star Trek” show you are not watching. Also, he talks about Heinlein quite a bit on his channel. “Mr. Sci-Fi”. He’s more middle-of-the-road and doesn’t inject his politics into things. I believe that he did “Friday Night Tights” on Nerdrotic.com. Those guys savage cancel culture and Hollywood all the time.

    CM, with permission, I am SO stealing this to post on FascistBook. I wonder how long it will stay up, and how quickly I’ll be in FB jail (again)?

    • Oldarmourer

      You can have my cell, it’s probably still ready and waiting…
      I used to spend a fair amount of time chatting and exchanging jokes and cartooms like this with people I haven’t seen in years and probably never will again face to face, but I got tired of being ‘banned’ for things that someone else posted on my page years ago and I haven’t been on there in over a year, don’t miss it at all. The ‘please come back so we can ban you again’ messages go to a disposable e-mail account I don’t check so I don’t even have to see them πŸ˜‰
      When their ‘fact checkers’ are all of the purple hair or headbag wearing persuasion (or both, although I don’t see how that’s even possible given the requirement for the bagwearers to throw said purple haired screechers off of high buildings) ; it’s pointless pointing out that they can’t read and don’t know history so they don’t understand the references you used and just banned them because they didn’t parrot the approved ‘newspeak’.
      I got tired of dealing with them and gave up and don’t feel deprived for it in the least.

  • Harry

    Excellent!

  • Lucius Severus Pertinax

    Dan Ackroyd could do a great Rod Serling πŸ˜‰

  • Denis Wolowiecki

    Brilliant. Day by Day is the highlight of my morning out here in AZ, and we have great sunny mornings.

  • Pete

    Bravo! But still well below the zone capacity of wearing a $10K designer dress saying tax the rich to a $30K per ticket gala. How can you even speak to that? If you can come up with a way I’d be mightily impressed.

    • John

      The irony here is that the Left, because of their arrested development to the moral equivalent of children (fairness and caring only), are the ones trying to wish us adults into the cornfield.

  • Lewis Paul Snyder

    Marvelous!

  • epador

    Do you want to see something REALLY scary?

  • I mostly agree with what JDOW wrote. But from the many medical papers I have read on ivermectin, and quite a number of real world observational studies, it does indeed also work as a prophylaxis. A preventative. No, I won’t give out “internet dosages”, but you can visit the FLCCC site and get them from their protocols. Charts exist online showing how much ivermectin is in the pony paste, and in the 1% liquid. That being said, I am keeping my 4 bottles of Agri-mectin in reserve, and have found that a solid regimen of vitamins and supplements have worked for me so far, along with daily oral rinse/gargle with original Listerine and a nasal spray using 0.5% povidone iodine. I’ve been doing this for more than 18 months now, and haven’t had any kind of illness or allergy attack the whole time, which is a miracle for me.
