    Cobblers,viruses don't just become resistant to vaccines,antibiotics though are useless on viruses,two different things.
    The new parliamentary democracy,it's not the will of the people that counts but the will of 650......will come back to haunt them.

    I fully accept that there will many be localised, short term shortages of all sorts of items from corn plasters to sprouting broccoli, from white port to masking tape, but I do find myself distrusting the prophets of doom promises of a never ending stream of human misery that will befall the nation on the 1st November.
    This country f's up without a cause. Imagine what it would do with one! The little darlings' brains will not be able to cope with a change of routine, never mind the challenge of thinking for themselves where they need to. Copy the next man they say, but when the first does not know, they are b'ed!

    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

    That's true.
    The way viruses get around vaccines is to mutate into a slightly different one that the vaccine does not cover for. They are constantly doing this.

    It's splitting hairs. The virus mutates, and the mutation makes it resistant, but it's significantly the same virus. Human genes mutate all the time, but we don't form a different species.
    those princes have accomplished most who paid little heed to keeping their promises, but who knew how to manipulate the minds of men craftily.

    A lot of it is just cleanliness. For example, the easiest way for a virus to go from one person to another is if you share a cup. It's relatively difficult for viruses to infect through the air. some can and some can't, but make it easy for them, and you just make your own problems.
