  1. It’s all in your head, Joey. Scored by James Horner self-plagiarizing A Beautiful Mind self-plagiarizing Bicentennial Man.
  2. Smoking Bolivian chlorine dioxide boosts creativity.
  3. I agree with you, though, 21st century problems are physical problems, not digital.
  4. Too much estrogenic soy and pea-protein makes little Harry an anti-capitalist Harriet.
  5. Like chopping your hand off to take the edge off metastatic cancer at this point.
  6. I can’t believe you wasted your once every few days name change on this. The old name, it had character. It was sly. It was rebellious. It was exotic. Had humor. You look like the girl next door now.
  7. Does COVID spread through loads? COVID does not seem to spread through loads as far as we can tell. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/expert-answers/sex-and-coronavirus/faq-20486572#:~:text=There is currently no evidence,could be transmitted sexually. So keep your face mask on, but you can skip the Willy-mask... Of course these health sexperts also though masks didn’t work as part of a propaganda campaign a few months ago...
  8. Yep. From here to the moon.
  9. Number of people testing positive for antibodies has dropped by 26%, after only months. Big clue that there is no long-lasting immunity. https://www.bbc.com/news/health-54696873 It looks like immunity lasts around 7 months... https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2020/10/studies-show-long-term-covid-19-immune-response By comparison, the common cold gives you immunity for 2-3 years. The problem is that COVID can do cumulative/permanent lung damage. But hopefully the first time is the worst...we’ll see. Methinks the best
  10. At this point nationwide lockdowns in hard-hit places are a sham. They are not lockdowns. They can’t kick this thing out anymore. The window of opportunity is way past gone for that. Idiot politicians around the world missed their chance to control this when it was controllable. Targeted lockdowns in areas that have things under control are more effective. But locking down the country of France with skyrocketing cases...it’ll just take the edge off.
  11. Let’s get back on track and give Quint some shit! It’s amazing the difference a few months of learning about a disease does to death rates. Big surges everywhere but much more manageable on the death front. Probably multi factor: 1. Doctors are more experienced at treating 2. Masks and distancing are decreasing viral loads and severity of disease 3. The surviving ultra-vulnerable know to be more cautious 4. The virus is probably evolving to more contagious and less deadly? Unknown but possible. Golly gee. People who can only think in
  12. Alex, Sweden has had pretty strong lockdowns compared to the world. It just hasn’t been centrally mandated, that’s all.
  13. If you normalize France’s daily numbers to the US’s population, the US would have had close to 150,000 new cases today. How embarrassing for the enlightened Europeans!
  14. Starting the last chapter on a more subdued note is the most vanilla thing in storytelling. Just like that epic action scene at the beginning of RotJ.
  15. Why would I back pedal? I was and am right all through.
  16. I’m not triggered by mstrox talking sense about herd immunity in October 2020. It’s all about timing. You want to be cautious and slow when the fog is thickest and you can let down your guard speed up as the fog clears.
  17. Many months ago you were wrong.
  18. Trump still has a few days to go. 10-12 days after onset of symptoms is when you get a rough estimate if someone is going to go south. Regardless, the balance of probability says he is likely going to survive, sorry Cremers. P.S. While I appreciate the sentiment of his latest Tweet about not letting fear [of covid, in this case] dominate your life, most people also don’t get to be flown by helicopter to the world’s best hospital, with a staff of doctors and nurses dedicated just to them, the latest and greatest medical care, including classified treatments, and all at
  19. “Why’d we get COVID?”
  20. Just because something isn’t new doesn’t mean there’s not much to say about it. As you proved by saying some interesting things about the origins of the track!
  21. You can’t provide analysis if you say there is nothing to analyze! If you hate it, say you hate it.
