HOUSTON — As the state reels from increased hospitalizations being driven by the rampant delta variant, a major Texas hospital system has confirmed its first case of the emergent COVID-19 lambda variant.
Houston Methodist Hospital, whose network includes eight hospitals, confirmed the case Monday involving what the World Health Organization has deemed a “variant of interest,” ABC News reported.
Coronavirus: Texas hospital system confirms its 1st case of COVID-19 lambda variant – WFTV
It is now officially annoying and pissing me off. They do not care about health or the vaccination but the constant injection of fear and “trust the Feds and its allies” with a dose of “eliminate the heathens that do not heed us.”
Coming soon: Covid 22: Electric Boogaloo.

My primary care doc and I were joking about this a few weeks ago. She said perhaps we’ll be allowed to be normal after the omega variant; I pointed out we could then just move to the Hebrew alphabet, like the mathematicians did.
Both of us laughed, then both of us realized it really wasn’t a funny-ha-ha conversation.
Remember: This is the hospital that went to court so they could fire any employee that opted not to get the vaccine
After Greek and Hebrew, there’s Ancient Egyptian, and Ogham, and Linear B, and Old Norse….
Imagine the hysteria we can have when the Ѭ, ॠ, 𓀜, 𐂄, and ᚘ variants are making the rounds!
Dear god! He’s going to go full emoji!
Hey, those are legitimate characters in one alphabet or another! Even the Linear B horsie and the Ogham picnic table!
… Using emojis as variant designators does open up some horrifying possibilities, tho’. Oog. I’d just stumbled across a poster from the Scarfolk Council. Lemme just look for it on line….
Here we go. By the time it reaches FLOPSY BUNNY it will be too late!
Linear B, now there is a nice obscure script. (Not an alphabet — a syllabary. Just to be pedantic.) For extra credit, how do you pronounce that character? 🙂
Hey, just using the Chinese character set gives you thousands of symbols to choose from…
I’m gonna claim I have Covid-19 Omicron, which gives me the uncontrollable urge to headbutt people.
Let’s see how it works.
I have Chinaflu-40, which causes me to want to spray 40s at fascists.
They made this movie, it’s called Songbird.
A local forum has a rather long, ongoing discussion. A lot of members are on the older (a lot of boomers, a few Gen X’ers, and next to no one younger than an “elder millennial”) and a lot of them have bought hook line and sinker into the paranoia and constant fear. That someone would go about their lives and
Quite a few seem fully on board the “everyone should be vaxxed and anyone who isn’t should be burned at the stake or, at minimum, excommunicated,” movement.
If this all ever goes away (I used to say “when this all goes away” but I’m less certain that it will by the hour), it’ll go down as the greatest PsyOp in history.
Yes, it’s quite alarming how many people seem to want to live in a deimocracy. (After Deimos, of course: the Greek god of dread and terror.)
All the thrills of a dystopian novel and a horror movie combined, only there’s no end to it. Maybe they just assume that they’ll always be safely playing the audience role?
Here’s the thing no one in the mass media is going to tell you: Coronaviridae is a family of viruses. SARS, MERS, Covid-19, diarrhea, hepatitis, encephalomyelitis, and the common cold are all caused by viruses from various subfamilies within the Coronaviridae family…
The entire family is known to incredibly widespread and subject to fairly quick mutations. Famously, this is why there is “no cure for the common cold.”
They can (and probably will) be finding new variants of the SARS-CoVID-2 strain for centuries to come… On the bright side, the mass media will probably stop pushing the panic porn over every new variant as soon as they have a war against some third-world brown people the Democrat Party and/or Labor Party want to launch.
But, you see, SARS-CoV-2 has extra-special symptoms: fever, inflammatory response, and blood clotting. We can’t expect pharma researchers to come up with some miracle drug that treats all those things, so we could just take two pills and call our doctors in the morning! We must prevent infections at all costs!
The other thing the fear pushers want us to ignore is that viruses in general, and airborne coronaviruses in particular, trend toward is greater contagion but lower severity. Sick people in bed or dying don’t easily spread the disease. Otherwise healthy people with sniffles do.
And I have to ask as well, exactly HOW are they differentiating between “variants,” how can they tell the difference between a Rona mutation and a common cold, and how accurate ARE these tests? I never see these addressed; there is no logic or evidence, only fear pushing.
This virus is endemic, and is never, ever going away. I hear rumbling the White House wants everyone back in masks now, even the vaccinated.This isn’t going to end until enough people collectively tell “health officials” like Fraudci to go to hell. I’m not doing Covid for another winter. Or ever again, for that matter.
I think too many alpha particles have already hit their brains… We’re F¥€%#d!
