Wikipedia made a guide on their move over to @liberachat I certainly learned a few things.
Now is a good time.
But indeed there could be something specific about releasing it from muscle cells. But that's tested in the phase 3 vaccine trials by monitoring volunteers for problematic symptoms and rejecting the vaccine if a problem like that is found.
@jb55 sometimes I find Bret and Heather get a little too carried away with the need to be contrarian and challenge "the narrative".
And covering a paper that they just got 2 minutes before the recording (maybe from a cynical listener anticipating their reaction and audience size) wasn't a smart move imo.
@jb55 I also don't really get what they meant with "by accident". Figuring out problems with a vaccine, and all its components, is the whole point of phase 3 trials. So afaik we only got lucky in the sense that otherwise we might not have a vaccine. But that's not news; it's generally considered a combination of luck and resources that we got the vaccines in a year rather than decades.
@jb55 they covered this in a couple of episodes. But eventually converge on at least one obvious point: you probably get a lot less exposure to spike when you take a vaccine than when you let the virus itself replicate.
What I did miss was an analysis of the dose: how much spike did they give these animal models, compared to how much is in a vaccine vs how much is in a natural infection. Everything is bad at *some* dose.

This week @AaronvanW and I explain what happened with the "OFAC compliant" block (tl&dr: nothing).
It's not a very technical episode, but all the more dystopian. Is this the beginning of the end of Bitcoin? https://nadobtc.libsyn.com/mara-pool-and-mining-censorship-nado-37
Everything you wanted to know about the difference between Bitcoin Core's v0.21.1 Speedy Trial and the independent LOT=true release... and probably more.
@AaronvanW and I explain.
Warning: some thinking out loud and confusion is involved...
Bitcoin Core 0.21.1 release candidate 1 available (with taproot activation)
