    No, it evolves as it infects, hence "who was unable to beat the virus". If infection were brought down it could not evolve.

    My (entirely uneducated) understanding is that it depends on which vaccine you're getting. Some of them get squished by a strong immune system, others trigger a reaction from that immune system.

    Re: Gas Prices - outside of US

    Prices are always much higher in Europe than the US. Honestly, your prices seem crazy low to us. I've always imagined the difference is taxation but I don't know.

  34. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies
