I was visiting a friend in the Shire three days before this lockdown and a friend of a friend of hers, ‘M’, popped in. She’d left Queensland after seven days during a 14-day lockdown; and did anybody mind?
I was too shocked to answer, and she asked if anybody had been vaccinated – we had been – and she said she was worried she’d be in danger with us shedding on HER! I said that shedding was rubbish. If she knew anything about it she would know that the vaccine doesn’t have live virus.
She argued that a friend of hers, vaccinated with Astra Zeneca, held a magnet over the injection site, and the magnet had stuck, proving that electric forces came with the injection. Her friend had held a magnet to her forehead and it stuck there too, showing even more dreadful side effects. I said there was no way a magnet could stick to the injection site, but it could stick to the forehead due to the effects of the coefficient of moisture. This seemed to satisfy her and she stopped rabbiting on.
When I was a boy, around 12-years-old, we used to stick small pieces of thin metal to our foreheads. We’d secretly lick them to make our magic work. Pressing the metal to our skin made a vacuum between the metal and the skin and it stayed there until it dried out. We’d remove it before then, because it did impress the girls. It would not work on a curved or soft part of the body, e.g. cheeks or the top of the arm.
Incidentally, there is no such thing as the coefficient of moisture. But it sounded good at the time!
