BBC - The YouTubers who blew the whistle on an anti-vax plot

 Dark antivax disinfo groups working behind the scenes. 

A mysterious marketing agency secretly offered to pay social media stars to spread disinfo about Covid vaccines. Their plan failed when the influencers went public about the attempt to recruit them. 

An influencer marketing agency called Fazze offered to pay him to promote what it said was leaked information that suggested the death rate among people who had the Pfizer vaccine was almost three times that of the AstraZeneca jab.

The information provided wasn't true.

It quickly became apparent to Mirko that he was being asked to spread disinformation to undermine public confidence in vaccines in the middle of a pandemic.

Idaho morgues are running out of space for bodies as covid-19 deaths mount

When you think about it, the potato state of Idaho is really a dummy southern state. Don't let the geography fool you.

And re. potatoes... Unless you got a famine or something (think Irish famine or some nasty war conditions), you should be eating lousy potatoes in moderation only... like once in a blue moon or something... or unless you can't wait for your teeth to rot.

If I had to survive on potatoes or olives, I'd choose the humble potato.

For the record, I'm not Irish or Greek.
