Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

A lot of folks also forget a few minor details, like the size of the US when compared to most other countries, our population size and density And the non-homogeneity of our population density. The nationwide population density is in two digits per square mile if I remember correctly, but the major...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

It's too soon to know THAT is what I think we need to hear more of. IMHO there has been far too much certainty on every side of this argument. Seriously, I've seen the results of a small test group, with no control group, cited as proof positive that a certain drug works in certain sorts of cases. ...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Reports i've seen from various knowledgeable sources {i.e., epidemiologists and disease experts} say that COVID-19 has a fatality rate anywhere between ten and thirty times that of seasonal flu. If an epidemiologist says something like that, I'm inclined to trust it. However, if an epidemiologist s...

The limitation is that if there were another new-and-never-seen-before cause of ten of thousands of deaths worldwide in 2020 Well, there was another new cause of deaths - the economic oppression of the lockdown, where willing buyers and willing sellers of goods and services were told not to associa...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Well, if it's "probable" covid-19 deaths under discussion, then pretty much by definition some are and some aren't. CDC is wrong to insist that they all be counted as covid-19 deaths, same as if they were confirmed. The states that refuse to count any of them are equally wrong. But without the abili...

Re: semi-OT: When a man loves...

And the musical (or at least some music): http://request-a-song.com/songs/viewsong.php?songid=45 I also found a first-person story of a girl with a centaur (shapeshifter) boyfriend, but I'm afraid that the first chapter is written the way some teenage girls talk. Apparently the main character had no...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

At some point you need to choose between perfection (vaccines for all now!) and the risks of life in public. While realizing that the lockdown is also killing people - but they are harder to identify and enumerate. At present I am pretty confident that the disease has killed more people than the lo...

As always, Garbage In, Garbage Out. Counterpoint to the CQ Doesn't Work study. Summary: the media have been pooh-poohing a number of previous reports because they weren't proper controlled clinical studies of a representative population, and they did agree with President Trump. The same media are l...

I am an American Citizen, and while I must assume an amount of responsibility for Donald Trump being in office, It is my opinion he is a terrible President and we are worse off with him at the wheel. The sad thing is, I think he's perhaps the second-best President we've had in my lifetime - and I a...
