There's a reason Sim City doesn't show parking lots.
Wow! Although I sorta assume that this isn't super stable.
Before you ask, no the pop-ups aren't for sale (copyright issues obviously).
Of course! Once their weight / storage ratio gets too bad, they're not useful for transport, but they're still useful.
This is the first I've heard of "Antibody imprinting", the idea is that once you get a vaccine for a specific variant of a virus, any later vaccine against a very similar virus will end up having the same effect as if you'd just had a booster against the original variant. This is all in the context of the recent Omicron-specific booster not performing any better than a normal booster. The author's main other takaway was: "if a variant comes along that's horrific enough to show major immune evasion, that very property will make it something that a new vaccine booster is likely to be able to target usefully. Omicron isn't it, though". Finally, there are further studies that still have the potential for an omicron-specific booster that beats the original.
If you look at the full set of images, I'm concerned that some of these architects may not have intended their dollhouses to be used.
