From the Ars Technica article:

the participant was able to produce about 90 characters per minute, easily topping the previous record for implant-driven typing, which was about 25 characters per minute.
So it appears to enable typing at > 3x the speed of previous efforts. At least for this one particular person.

The consensus I’m hearing from epidemiologists is the mRNA vaccines should offer better immunity than infection. So it would seem the 8 month for immunity after infection should be a lower bound for the vaccine effectiveness.

Serious question: How can we possibly know this? I'm all for vaccinations (I'm going in for my second shot this weekend), but I just worry about commentary backed by intuition that doesn't carry sufficient disclaiming.

I had this exact question and asked around before finding out a friend's brother specializes in immunology. Apparently two separate exposures triggers a much longer lasting immune response, and because of the nature of the vaccine it's much more targeted to one specific aspect of the virus, and consequently more potent in a way. Moderna also made a statement that they expected their vaccine to last for 2 years based on their ability to measure the number of antibodies and its decline over time [1].

Rob Colbert | Pfizer COVID19 vaxx | magnet sticks to arm at shot site

My neighbor, who received both Pfizer shots, saw a video on Gab of magnets sticking to people's arms where they got the shot. He doesn't own a magnet and asked if we had one. I do. We use magnets to hold things on our refrigerator. So, they're not crazy industrial magnets. And, my neighbor is not greasy or messed up.

A magnet taken from my refrigerator sticks to my neighbor's arm. It only sticks to his arm. And, it only sticks to the location where he got the shot. It doesn't stick above it, below it, to the sides, his other arm, or anywhere else. It only sticks exactly where he got the shot.

He's a private person. There won't be a video. I - am simply done questioning. I just watched a magnet stick to the spot on my neighbor's arm where he got the vaccine.

Now we have a way to tell the replicants from the humans. No vaxxed allowed in the ethnostate.
