Careful. I'll bet there are many reading your post and thinking, "Exactly!"
Keeping an open mind here, I do have to consider the possibility that exactly 10 months after the shot, we all suddenly self-destruct.  An idea suggested by Tom Lehrer, in his song, We Will All Go Together When We Go. 

Trigger Warning: Very black humor.  Written in the 1950s when people worried that a nuclear bomb would destroy the entire world.

A famous doctor said 75% of people who took the mRNA shots will be dead within 2-3 years. I'm not sure exactly how it's supposed to happen, and if it will be spontaneous, but that's not a lot of time either way.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Probably true if hes referring to one of the first cohorts of those eligible; nursing home residents with only a as couple years life expectancy on average to begin with.

In the early days of Oholei Torah, the Rebbe said R' Elye Chaim Roitblat should remain employed, even if not as a teacher, just for students to see him.

R' Pinye was that modern-day old-school eltere chossid who taught and inspired just by being.

He was my tutor in misivta ( as a Bocher I did not appreciate what I had). One thing I vividly remember that he thought me. I would always bring the Gemara close to me half on the table and half against my chest. He would push the table closer to me so that the whole Gemara was on the table. He explained, you need to bring your self to Torah, not the Torah closer to you.

The whole thread is great, but "deceptively simple" captures a whole lot
