    I would love to be able to get my vaccine shot right now, but it won't be my turn until the end of June at the earliest. And I probably won't be among the first of my age group who will be called up to receive their shot anyway and with the way things are going I fully expect yet more delays.

    Almost everyone in our four offices got Moderna. Several had issues of just feeling generally really crappy the day after the second one, but that's about it. I'm guessing the unable to use the shot arm for two days is rare, but that's just a guess. Hoping you don't have any ill effects, but thought that bulk of anecdotal evidence might make you feel better.

    I'm not worried... Okay, that's a lie. I'm worried about a lot of things.

    But this is not one of them.

    I just want to know what the side effects are, which I've done research on, and to be prepared in case they happen.

    Anecdote not data, etc, but for me at three days after getting the shot - injection location developed significant soreness a couple hours after injection. That lasted for most of the day after receiving the injection. Day after, the always-there soreness faded, but the shoulder was still notably painful if moved - trying to raise my arm was unpleasant, but if I didn't have to actually engage that muscle it was fine (I could manipulate things with my hands and move from the elbow without issues, it mostly interfered with lifting motions or needing to move my arm up from the resting plane.) Two days after that pretty much went away as well. There's still some residual stiffness in that muscle, but it doesn't register as 'pain' any more - it's more like what you get when you've overworked a muscle and it's in the recovery period where it just kind of feels tired and tense.

    Pfizer vaccine here yesterday. My arm is tender if palpitated, and sore if I lift my elbow above the level of my shoulders, but I ordinarily don't do either of those very much. And I have a swollen lymph node in the armpit nearer the injection site, which apparently occurs about in about 10% of cases.

    A great deal of ideas that come to me involve some variation of hiding/sleeping in a box while a remoly controlled/piloted/projected something something does stuff in your place.

    Like, a few years ago when TeamFourStar was doing their "Metal Gear Retrospective" in the first stream of Metal Gear Solid 2 in the tutorial level they hide in a locker and the thought that pops into my head is a MGS style game where most of the "infiltration" work is actually being done by a remote drone that you're controlling, but it can only get so far away from you so s good chunk of the gameplay loop is you trying to find places to hide and deploy the drone from and then using the drone to either find your objectives or find other places you can hide that are closer to the objective.

    So basically it amounts to a guy hiding in a locker or a closet or something using a VR headset to operate a drone and explore the building he's in.

    Are there any phonetics geeks here? What do you call a consonant with its manner-of-articulation being "throughout the esophagus" such as a belch?

    I know there aren't any real languages that include that sound, but it is entirely possible to belch on purpose, so there could be, so it needs a formal name.

    Not a phoneticist, but I can find reference to Esophageal speech as an airstream mechanism, rather than an articulation point. It's used primarily by people who've had their larynxes surgically removed. Also by children who have been drinking sodapop, or "burp juice" as we used to call it.

    Made an improvised home made pasta today.

    Well, I started it. Made the sauce part of the meat sauce and started boiling the pasta but the heat got to me, I had to sit down for a minute, and mother took over. Only asked her to watch the noodles for a second while I got my bearings but she started frying the meat and you know how it goes.

    I think I burned the garlic and it's a little more tomatoie than I'm used to but the sauce isn't half bad.

    a bit of diced onion and a clove or two of minced garlic sauteed on low in a tablespoon of (real)butter until the onion is caramelized, then add a small can of tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of water, and salt and pepper to taste. Also added what I think was a tablespoon of white sugar at mom's suggestion. Stir to combine and let cook for a few minutes then kill the heat and lt it sit for a few minutes, if you wanna try it.

    Pour the sauce over the cooked meat when the meat is done.

    ...maybe leave out the water, it's a bit soupy.

    "Hot" and "cool" are synonyms when casually referring to (for example) a mixtape, but antonyms when referring to temperature. Wat is the term for this phenomenon? It isn't "contronym" because that's just a fancy way of saying "single word with two opposite meanings"

    Is there a word for "pair of words that share a meaning and also have entirely- or mostly-unrelated meanings that are coincidentally opposite each other"?

    Google needs to fix its ad algorithm.

    I am not a nurse.

    I have never been in a nursing program.

    I have never once looked into a nursing program.

    I do not have an interest in a nursing program.

    I do not have the stomach for a nursing program (I get queasy when people start talking about human waste).

    I heavily, heavily respect anyone who goes into the medical field, but that is not me and never will be me.

    Well you know what they say, if you can't stand the heat, maybe you've got your ring on too high.

    As I make homemade tomato sauce a lot in going to give my advice: salt your onions as you fry them, start with a 400g tin of chopped tomatoes, add about half a litre of suitable stock, bring to the boil {the only time you want your ring on high), reduce to a simmer and let your sauce reduce for at least an hour stirring at least every thirty minutes. Add the herbs near the end. You could also use a thickening agent like cornflour, remember to mix it with water before adding (and noteb that it changes the taste), I think some people use oil for this purpose.

    I had the sauce on a low simmer the entire time it was ont h heat, except when it was poured over the meat when it was on a medium simmer for a few minutes.

    The pasta, however, was on high becuase it needed to be brought to a rapid boil.

    Also wasn't feeling well yesterday, so...

    I originally intended to cook it all one at a time(sauce, then pasta, then meat) but my mother told me to get the pasta boiling while I was still cooking the garlic/onion/butter mixture and...

    Too much at once when I wasn't at 100% in a hot kitchen, basically. Had to sit down for a minute and then mom just kind of took over.

    My stepfather tried some of the combined meat sauce and said it was pretty good, but my stepfather also has some... Odd tastes, so.

    I propose the term antosynonym.

    I've been writing stories for quite a while now. So far I wrote 40+ Chapters of my Pathfinder Fan-Fiction Story. I'm also planning on writing Pokemon/Dungeons & Dragons Fan-Fiction Crossover Stories. I was going to post a what-if the situation on the Media Forum but I don't want to risk combining my battles forum.

    Ah, so I take it that you've taken our advice, have stopped using Grammarly, and are trying to work out your issues with grammar if you've written more than 40 chapters of a fanfic?

    I'm still using Grammarly and it has helped me so much.

    I sincerely believe that anyone who honestly says "You're going to look back and think of these as the best days of your life" to someone in their teens has lived a very sad and unfulfilling life.

    All of the best moments in my life either happened in elementary school or after I graduated high school. My teen years fricking sucked.

    With all due respect, it really hasn't.

    It...hasn't. We've told you repeatedly that it hasn't. The post I quoted before this one had grammar issues.

    Anyone who said that either had the best teenage years ever, a really awful adulthood, or both.

    I think the stereotype for that is someone who was the star of their high school sports team, really good at whatever flavor of sportsball was irrationally important to that town(in my town it's American Football) but wasn't very good at academics or course work... And turned out they were coasting by becuase one or more teachers were fudging their grades so that they woulnd't end up academically ineligible to play for the team so they're really bad at academics and never got any actual help to improve.

    Then they get to college, possibly on a scholarship, and flunk everything becuase at the college level nobody gives a crap, they drop out, end up working a dead-end job and in their 40s they're still telling anyone who'll listen about how they made the game-winning touchdown back in senior year becuase that's literally the only thing they have going for them.

    That'd be the stereotype. Not sure how often things like that happen in real life, but I've heard stories.
