Ok, but what I am really curious about now is what historical artifact are they looking at?

This poor kid had to be the grown-up, the parent, the man in the family, the one to literally pick up the howling infant & carry him outside, when his old man lost his marbles in the middle of a Tucson supermarket & went on an insane rant about face masks.

Vulgarity alert: extreme in both text & speech. If all you do is watch the video, mute the audio & don't read the text, you'll still get the idea. The guy in the blue shirt appears to be the "father" & the younger clean-shaven man in the light hat appears to be the son.

I decided to edit out the link because it isn't really appropriate for Nauvoo. Just Google something like "Tucson son carries dad out after supermarket meltdown."

I hope the young man won't feel embarrassed with his friends or peers, but can certainly understand if he does. He did what he had to do.

I'm worried about what happened after they left the store. That father seems difficult to live with since he has so much rage, and I can't imagine he would quickly forgive his son for embarrassing him.

I have been looking into the phase 3 vaccine trials, to see if I could participate in one of them. It would be a 50/50 chance of getting the vaccine or a placebo.

Moderna is an mRNA vaccine. Is close to their 30,000 enrollees. I did the screening questions and was denied. I changed my race to African American and I was accepted. So it looks like they do not yet have enough African Americans enrolled in the trial.

Pfizer is an mRNA vaccine. They have now reached their goal of 30,000 enrollees. They currently want to enroll another 14,000 in the trial to increase the diversity of participants, including bringing down the age to 16, those with stable HIV, HBV, and HCV. If those are the criteria, then I will not be able to join this one.

AstraZeneca is a protein spike vaccine. On their website they are not yet recruiting for the phase 3 trial. Maybe soon.

Jason, on Facebook, I'm seeing all sorts of memes about how bad an mRNA vaccine is.  Like it completely overwrites your DNA and would be passed down to your kids who are born after getting the vaccine. I know nothing about it. Can you educate me, at least a little, about mRNA and protein spike vaccines? Since you want to be in on the trials, and are an anesthesiologist (I'm correct, right? Are you a doctor?), I thought you might be in the know.

I actually do not know much about mRNA vaccines. They are a new type of vaccine. Quicker to develop.

mRNA is messenger RNA. It is the blue print code taken from DNA that is used by our cells' machinery to create proteins. mRNA vaccines would likely be a blue print for your cells to build proteins from the virus that your body will then launch an immune response against. But not a complete virus, just the outer parts that our body's would find most useful in detecting the invaders.

My thought is that they will not overwrite DNA, not in sperm, and especially not in eggs, as women's eggs were created while they were still a fetus, so those will cannot be changed. So I do not think they will become permanent parts of our species's genetic makeup. But again, I do not know specifics.
