I'm not sure exactly what states are all affected by this, but I feel like a big Get Well Soon needs to be given out. This flu epidemic is getting so severe, at least where I am. If you have come down with the flu, I really hope you feel better. Hospitals near me cannot take any more patients because they are so full of flu cases. People are being sent out of town city to find a hospital that can take them. Please do not take this sickness lightly. Wash your hands after you've been in a room with lots of people and especially after using the bathroom. Many people have come close to death with the flu in recent weeks. I sincerely hope you do not catch it, and if you have them I really hope you get well soon :)

Electro!! Did you eat my subject?! Again?!

I don't live in America, but where I live, a couple schools have closed because of the "flu". They say it's something more severe than that. Apparently it's called "The Aussie Flu" and you need to be vaccinated to avoid it. My mum is taking me to take a vaccine-shot tomorrow just to be safe. I suggest everyone does the same, as many people from all over the world are dy.ing. This flu season is one of the worst. Anyways, I wish all countries well! Be safe! <3

I AM A PROUD ELDER IN THE CRAZY CLUB!!!! I'LL SAY IT LOUD AND I'LL SAY IT PROUD!!

 

My name is Valasari, Viking from the Isle of Vanaheim. Home to the sick and elderly dragons who make their final pilgrimage to this sacred land. Not many Vikings have made it past the unblinking Sentinel gaurdians, who have stone-like statue appearances and have the element of surprise upon unsuspecting Vikings. They are actually blind, therefore rely on their hearing & smell. They have better hearing than most dragons because of their blindness.

   ABOUT ME

 

I come from the Isle of Vanaheim. So far, the Sentinels have trusted me enough to live among the poor old dragons on this sacred Island. Of course, my Dragons are with me. They had to prove that they were trustworthy, as well as loyal. I have sadly moved away from Vanheim to live in the School. My goal is to become an Ultimate Dragon Trainer and then go back to Vanaheim!! I wish to see the Sentinels again....someday, after I have achieve my goal.

 

   ABOUT MY DRAGONS

 

I saved Saharii from a devastating situation. Dragon Hunters had caged him, but Hiccup and I rescued him just in time.

Now, Zeena, on the other talon, has a wonderful life, I am making sure of it. I wish to befriend more dragons. I hatched her from an egg and raised her. With some help from Saharii.

 

Join me in my quest to save dragons from scum like the Dragon Hunters and Viggo. And as far as dragons are concerned...I wouldn't trade them for anything.....Would You?

Funny things

 

I'm NOT clumsy. It's just that the floor hates me. The tables and chairs are bullies and the Wall Gets In The WAY!!

 

 

When someone told me I was in a fantasy, I fell off my Unicorn.

 

Friend: Did you fall?

Me: No, I attacked the floor.

Friend: Backwards?

Me: I'm freakin' talented!!!!!

The morale of this story. Just believe the cold truth that you're a Klutz. 'Cause I sure am.

 

If a robber broke into our house to search for money....I would laugh and search with him.

 

I hate it when people text me and it says "call me". One day I am going to call someone and say "text me".

 

I can't dance to save my life, but when I step in dog poo, I can moondance better than Michael Jackson. =)

 

 

 

Dad jokes:

 

 Dad lookes at me....."You know hon, I couldn't find a single shoe shop today". I breathe in a sigh of relief, knowing that he won't make a bad joke. Dad: "They only sold them in pairs". I bang my head on the wall.

 

Dad dances around in front of the ATM machine. Me: what are you doing? Dad: Just checking my balance. Me: *walks away to the car*

 

Dad in the morning: You know I stayed up all night wondering where the sun went....then it dawned on me.

 

Dad: Yesterday I ate a clock..it was very time consuming...especially when I went back for seconds!!

 

Dad: What's the difference between a piano, a tuna, and a pot of glue? Me: I don't know. Dad: You can tuna piano, but you can't piano a tuna. Me: What about the pot of glue? Dad: I knew that you would get stuck on that! Me: OHHHHHHHHHH

 

Dad: Did you hear about the guy in KC who was addicted to brake fluid? Me: No..... Dad: Good news! He can stop at any time.

 

Dad and I were at the store and he picks up the velcro: I wouldn't buy anything with velcro....it's a total rip-off.

 

Mom asks dad at Thanksgiving: How does the turkey smell? Dad: Through its nose, I guess. Me: I'm going to bed.

 

Dad after a nice hot shower: You know..... Me: Here it comes. Dad: Singing in the shower while washing your hair is all good 'till you get soap in your mouth.....it then it just becomes a soap opera....

 

That's All Folks!!

for now.....(evil laugh)

From What i've Heard the

From What i've Heard the Vaccine has a 10 percent chance of working. and if you do take it, and get sick anyway you're 600 More times contagious. So i wouldn't advise getting the Vaccine.

actually it's 30 and you should still get it. This is like the same argument that "vaccines get you aids" you aren't actually sick with said virus. Don't try and convince others that getting the thing that may save their lives is a bad thing.

gods the forums went downhill

1) people don't "get" autistic. Autism isn't like a flu, or a broken bone. It's genetic and something that individuals are born with. Your friend may have not been presenting many steryiotypical symptoms and got a diagnosis after they got a shot, but corrolation does NOT equal causation. And the idea that vaccines cause autism is 1) completely fabricated by a doctor who skewed a study because he was paid to create propoganda and got banned from the scientific community as a result, 2) extremely dangerous for people who are too ill to get vaccines and so rely on group immunity to not die, and 3) extremely damaging to actually autistic people, who keep being told that because the way they process the world is a little different they have some sort of "evil disease" caused by their parents' actions.

 

And in case you think I'm making this up, here is the actual CDC statement on vaccines and autism.

~Time Is Fleeting~

That's actually pretty true. People are afraid that anti-vaccinators are going to spread illnesses to those who get their sh.ots and make the world sicker than it is, but studies show that anti-vaccinators don't get sick any more than those who do get their vaccines.

 I don't usually just believe what I hear, but I've seen pro-vaccinators VS. anti-vaccinators and the anti usually get sick less than the pro.

 Never the less, whether you believe the statement above, some of the best things to do are to wash yourself as much as possible, stay away from those who are sick (or stay away from those who aren't sick if you have the flu-- don't go to work or school if you are sick, you will probably infect others), and take vitamin C whether you eat an orange or you take an actual vitamin. <3

They are passing a bill in my country that will make sure children won't be able to go to daycare and primary school without being vaccinated because antivaxxers keep killing babies and young children due to the ridiculous idea that group immunity is not a real thing.

hmm i wonder why

Man it's almost like the people who most adamantly press for community vaccinations... are the people who are most at risk and have compromised immune systems?? How dare they ask "healthy" people to stop getting them sick constantly. 

 

Stop spreading misinformed propoganda to gullable children and do some actual research.

There is a shred of truth

There is a shred of truth here, you know. Vaccinations against the flu are not 100% effective. They only target the specific strains that the yearly data THINKS will be the hardest hitting strains every year. Sometimes they hit the mark, and sometimes they don't. Supposedly getting the vaccine anyway can reduce the severity of the symptoms if you manage to get sick anyway, but.... I haven't seen any significant data to back that up. Anyone who has is absolutely welcome to bring it to my attention. The thing about influenza as opposed to other viruses is that influenza is CONSTANTLY mutating into new, more efficient strains. By the time flu season starts, the flu virus being passed around might not even vaguely resemble the strain they prepared for anymore.

It seems like this year in particular, they were pretty far off with the initial vaccine. Almost everyone I know who got the vaccine at the start of flu season got hit hard anyway, including me. Maybe after people started getting wrecked, they made a new batch to target the current strains, but I very much doubt that. When they create vaccines they usually create at least enough to meet demand for the entire flu season. Freak accidents like the H1N1 thing are pretty few and far between.

Personally, I usually prefer to go without the flu shot. Since it mutates so often, and for some reason I ALWAYS get hit anyway, I'd rather go without rousing my irrational phobia of hypodermic needles if I can help it. Herd immunity is absolutely a real thing. It just doesn't work even a fraction as well as vaccines for less... volatile viruses. For measles, mumps, rubella, polio, smallpox, ect... they work phenominally. Anyone who is at risk should definitely be getting the vaccinations though, as well as those who are exposed to at risk populations with some frequency, like nursing staff, day care workers, ect.

Wolf

 Art was done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests, Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair Viking and she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Lynx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud. She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal-like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is naturally good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability to be able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion towards humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

..............................Lyra

 .....................Art was done by Marg The Loony and Chameishida

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She suppressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely sarcastic at times and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity, and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. She values her self-preservation. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and sarcastic attitude towards everything that breathes. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and finds their interests. The second reason is that she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show-off. The problem is, natural talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given Viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx buried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get-togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoff-ness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aeryn

 Art was done by Tosilohi

Aeryn also has a sense of show-off-ness, an over-the-top, dramatic character. She takes any given situation, brandishes it with a flare of sarcasm and performs, drawing attention to herself all the while managing to act edgy or sweet, or however she wanted to be perceived. This need of hers to put on a show made her invaluable to the man while she was on his side. Like the theatre kid she should be, Aeryn has expertly crafted this skill of taking on different personas, and she isn't afraid to add in some cliche drama to her dialogue and actions. Constantly referencing pop-culture, Aeryn is interesting, but the tiring person to be around. The problem with her extroverted, boldness is that few get to witness the actual Aeryn, not one of her many characters. In a sense, it is quite similar to the multifaceted personality disorder, only, Aeryn recognizes her many personas. She chooses not to show anyone her true colors due to some insecurities. These different personalities are the shields she has put up for emotional protection. With Aeryn, you never know if her reactions are genuine or just part of the show.

I hope everyone recovers as well as they can from this epidemic. Everyone needs to keep their head up and hope for the best. All my love goes out to the families with the flu, and I hope they get better quickly.

oh no, that sounds awful. Hopefully it isn't the same epidemic that stormed thtough parts of the EU for a while, because I caught that one at the end of december last year and I'm still kind of recovering from it after getting better in January. My disc is still herniated from all the coughing |D

I hope the people affected will get better soon. Flu is very much an underrated virus and should not be taken lightly.

 

This reminds me... I should get a flu shot, actually. I don't see why I shouldn't, except that it costs more money for people my age.

Today on: Y'all Got No Idea What You're Talking About

Ah, a thread about illness already bubbling with people who don't understand how vaccines work! Allow me to brief you all on their functions!

- A vaccine will inject a patient with a dead or weakened version of the pathogen

- An immune system response is triggered, where white blood cells and antibodies will attack the invading organisms

- If the threat is new, the immune system will develop some memory cells that stay around after the infection is fought off so that the body knows how to fight it if it sees this (or something similar) again.

- When a vaccine 'fails', it does not make you contagious since the lab-bred pathogen cannot duplicate itself, or duplicates too slowly to increase in number.

- Vaccines strengthen a large defense mechanism in social animals (like us!) against disease called Herd Immunity; the more individuals resistant to a disease, the less likely one who isn't resistant to it will become infected! Depending on the pathogen, different percentages of the population must be resistant to make Herd Immunity effective.

 

Bonus! Myth debunking

- Vaccines do not include mercury, and even when it did in the past, that was in compounds and not pure element mercury. Kind of like how there's chlorine in sodium which is what salt is made of, but it doesn't poison you!

- Vaccines have never caused autism in a person, ever. That 'study' was forged (meaning faked) and its publisher, Andrew Wakefield, lost his medical lisence soon after. No further evidence for this connection between autism and vaccinations has been found.

- Also, autism is currently believed to be largely genetic in the scientific community, meaning it is passed down through a family. It also tends to be far, far less fatal than a virus or infection.

 

 

Also my sources used in an assignment last year about vaccinations in children and the importance of them, plus one specifically on the mercury thing.

The Alpha Trilogy

Reign of the Deep Queen | Refuge of the Blue King | Age of the Midnight Prince

https://image.ibb.co/ji115w/trilogy_card.png  

(haha see i can edit)(sort of)

We know that Vikings settled in the Archipelago a little over 500 years ago, but what stopped them before that? In the Dragon Nest, a stolen child must try to overthrow a tyrant. Her descendant, a volitile soul, runs from revenge until he cannot go any further. His son, a strong-willed leader, takes on a new name and builds his own empire until the past catches up with even him.

(Progress on this will be slowing down since I've become comfortable with my writing skills and styles and I am moving into original works and more ambitious projects. AotMP will be finished in the same style it is currently in, but RotDQ and RotBK may be shorter and lower priority, if I decide to do them)

Characters!

 

the super-duper rough draft

 

Ebony (v3) and Flies With Storms (v2)

(is this a self-insert-babies-first-oc type character?)
(absolutely, what do you think i am???? quality content creator?? u fool....)

https://i.imgur.com/KntmXPM.png

by me(left), and Chameishida (right)

Dramatic and petty with no impulse control to speak of, some would say her intelligence is wasted on revenges over small things, always done in very unique and specific ways. That’s not to say she’s a bad person, or easily angered; but with an oddly selective memory, she can sometimes have a (unintended) threatening presence. Storms, on the other hand, has a far more calm demeanour and often acts *begrudgingly* as a vent for Ebony, be it random ideas or long-winded complaints.

 

--BACKSTORY UNDER WORKS--

 

 

Pallus- the liberated Roman

- has a terrible memory (especially with dragon species names)

- generally avoids conflict

- chills with ebony on her adventures

 

Yzar and Lochiel

https://i.imgur.com/gb2HP12.png

- hey who wants some immortal quakens?

- thats right, these lovely ladies have surpassed time to be together

- only got art for Yzar so far, but Lochiel will be gettin some tasty eye-treats soon

- i love them so much.

Yes, but the flu vaccines are

Yes, but the flu vaccines are still pointless. Just a scam by pharmaceuticcal companies who realized they can't make a business if they don't give you a shot regularly. In other words when there was no demand for their products, they invented it. It's a traditional American practice.

That sucks! Get well soon to anyone who has it!

Wow that's horrible it's getting so bad wherever u live! Well wishes to anyone who caught it! I hope they have a good and fast recovery! I live in America too, and I've heard a couple familys that I know caught it, and that it's nasty (puking, just feeling horrible for weeks, etc.) but luckily no one in my family has caught it, and it's not as bad as it is where you are. Hopefully I won't catch it at school because I haven't had the vaccine...

My Viking OC

 

More about my viking soonish...

 

Name: Geveda

Apearence: scroll down a little and you'll see the artwork!

 Personality in a nutshell:

- friendly

- compasionate

-loyal, but it takes time for her to become loyal to others/trust others

- weird,but in a good way

- (sometimes strange) sense of humor

- avoids harm to others when possible

-  can be somewhat socially akward

- tends to talk to much 

Long version:

Personality: freindly, but socialy akward, loyal, compasionet, weird but in a good way, its part of her charm, with a sense of humor that sometimes leaves her standing akwardly when no one gets it. She is a very loyal person, and will not switch to the opsoing team, give away information, or help them if she is on the side she knows is good. However, while she is very loyal, it takes some time to for her to trust someone, and until then is figuring out if they are a good person to trust. There are reasons, however, that will get  her to break the rules, for example, going off to free trapped and caged dragons from dragon hunters despite being told not too (thats how she met CloudStream). She hates any kind of serious harm to people, which is why her arrows (more about them later on in siggy) only freeze the targets, not hurt. She also will try to get people to aviod injuring others when possible.

An incredbile animation of CloudStream by TosiLohi! (-squeels- E-)

 

About CloudStream: She is protective, loyal, and compasionate. She thinks of others before herself. She never shoots to kill, only injure if needed to protect. Cloudstream rescued her rider, Geveda, when she was attemting to free dragons out of cages in a dragon hunter camp. She was rather closed up at first, but warmed up to Geveda after Geveda proved to her she was trustwothy, and they formed a close bond. She loves speed and feeling the wind in her face, and often does stunts with her rider (however she pushes the limits of how daring they are, as Geveda is more catious than CloudStream)She, liker her rider, is very loyal. Her main and first loyalty lies with Geveda. It takes time and good actions for her to trust others. She is very determind and has a strong willpower.

Weaknesses: Sometimes she doesnt listen and does something anyway if she is determind to do it, which gets them in trouble sometimes. She does not give up easily, which can be bad if there is a need to stop.

I attend school every day, which, in my OPINION is one of the germy-ist places on Earth. Every day I walk in through those doors i feel as though I am playing Russian Roulette with my health.  Every time my skin comes in contact with any surface  (especially metal) I bathe in Hand Sanitizer. Every time someone coughs in my direction (even if I am across the room, coughing and sneezing travels very far), I retreat behind a veil of hair and run to the bathroom, cover everything in soap (including my face) and wash everything.  Its been a total nightmare.  My teachers are starting to notice how many times I leave the room.

Im the least germaphobic person my friends know. Its actually freaking them out. No, I dont mind getting sick (you get to stay home), but, some big tests are coming up and I dont want to have to take them with a head-ache, sore throat and stuffy nose. Every time a large test comes up, I get conveniently sick, so, i have to make it up.  Once this passes, i cannot wait to getting back to normal.

Over time, antibiodics stop working. Sometimes, doctors throw out antibiodics for inappropriate reasons. If you have the influenza, you don't need antibiotics. Come a time in the future when you actually need the antibiodic for something it can heal, it may not work. Best think before taking that antibiodic.

Not only do they stop working, if you take them when you shouldn't or don't finish your treatment there's a chance that whatever bacteria is infecting you grows immunity to the antibiotics due to being exposed but not killed by said antibiotics. This can be so incredibly dangerous, and with how antibiotics are so readily available people tend to do this more and more often. They're literally strenghtening bacterial diseases and making them hard to kill.

 

...And then other people d¡e because of those people. It sucks. It's a real problem.

yup

This is very true! If you want to learn more about it and the laws trying desprately to do something about it, look up "carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae." Essentially, because we use broad spectrum antibiotics too often, there are some bacterial infections that can't be weakened by any treatment, and so people with weaker immune systems that get those bacterial infections are doomed to die!

 

Always finish your antibiotics if you are given them, and tell your doctor you only want anitbiotics when absolutely necissary (to fight bacterial inflammations and NOT viral infections).

I have a hypothesis.  It needs backing but, I think that Human immune systems are weakening.  With all this medicine we have at our disposal,  our immune systems arent working as hard. They dont need to. Its not helping that sometime in the (near) future, hospitals will be able to inject us with microbots which will be able to live in our bloodstreams and support our immune system.  No evidence (too lazy to do research) just a thought that popped into my brain.

Not exactly. Due to the fact that people don't know how to use medicine containing antibiotics, bacteria mutate to resist them and become stronger. It's not like our immune systems are weakening (to the contrary, if you count vaccinations), it's that bacteria are slowly becoming more restistant and also deadlier in the process.

 

Microbots sound cool, but we still have a long ways ahead of us regarding that. I'm putting my faith in CRISPR, which is basically gene modification and also  really interesting as it can be used to target other conditions like genetic illnesses as well.
