Not really. Some college.

Tied game here...

I've just realized that the FNR has lost about 100 people since I joined.

OOC: Holy sh*t, my corruption just went down from 87.84 to 79.24.

Now that's progress.

No. Real football is a lot better. *run away really fast*

Just realized that I have the smallest black market in the region.

Good Morning!

This weekend in football has been rough!

Id say I liked your old flag better but then youd use your magic god emperor powers of holy awesomeness to eviscerate me.

No, that's different. Those people aren't any more vulnerable than the rest of society.

I'm saying that if your child is so vulnerable, keep them at home and don't let them come into contact with people who haven't been vaccinated. Simple. Don't enforce your opinions on other people.

Problem is: everyone is vulnerable to dying because of a bad disease.

Who are "those people"? Do you realize that we aren't just talking about infants and elderly people? People have literally died from measles as recently as 2018, for example (maybe this year, but if so I never heard of it but I wouldn't be surprised.)

Also, how would you know whether somebody is vaccinated or not? As stated, a lot of people may be vaccinated for reasons that nobody can possibly know by looking at them. What if they carry the disease without expressing symptoms and pass it on?

You really can't promote actions that help the spread of diseases that kill people because of whatever "opinion" you may have (even though this has nothing to do with opinions, as opinions are for subjective topics, which this isn't. Opinions don't overrule objectivity.)

Nope

Regarding the poll:
Wow, seems like no one thinks that we are alone in the universe. That's good. The odds that we're alone out there are incredibly low.
Though one can interprete the question differently. Life at all? Complex life? Intelligent life? Civilisations?
Of course it's more likely that there's simple life out there. I'm pretty sure we'll find evidence for this within the next decades. Maybe even in our own solar system on places like Titan or by detecting biosignatures on exoplanets. The next generation of telescopes will be able to do this by analysing the atmospheres of plants many lightyears away.
I think even if we just find some microbes we can't say we're alone in the universe any longer.
Moreover, the universe is extremely large. We can't even know how large it truly is. Even if civilisations are extremely rare, there have to be some of them. Finding them is another thing. Maybe we're too far apart. Seperated by space and time. But that's an entirely new topic: The Fermi Paradox (and the large amount of ideas on possible solutions).

I like this RMB, it's like a huge sci-fi fanbase

Hi and welcome to the FNR! Thanks for the compliment. I'm sure our RMB appreciates it :)

If vaccinations truly prevent you from catching the disease, then get yourself vaccinated. If you choose not to get vaccinated and die, then that's your choice.

That implies both options don't kill you for some people. Sometimes, rights have to be sacrificed for the greater good.

The way I like to think of it is that Alien Life can be as small as a microorganism. And the chances of no potential life like microorganisms in plenty of habitable planets, I think chances are low that there is no life at all.

Part of the problem is also whether we would want to find them. Theoretically, the vast majority of civilizations we would encounter would be much more technologically advanced than our own. Though this of course relies upon the assumption that any society would pursue more advanced forms of technology, as ours usually has. Political and cultural developments of an alien society may not necessarily encourage technological development.

If you don't get vaccinated and my theoretical 8 year old child dies, that has nothing to do with choice.

You don't seem to understand that other people can get sick of you don't vaccinate.
