  1. That Pfizer trial had 44,000 patients. 

    100 total people contracted COVID. 

    Only 8 were in the vaccine group. 

    Great for the vaccine...but hold up.

    Why is the positive rate reported around the world close to 15% while in this study it’s .02%?



    This is early evidence (not proof) that the general reported numbers are either cooked to exaggerate the outbreak, or the general testing protocols are shit.

    Because under the clinical trial standards they’re orders of magnitude lower. And I trust the standards of the trial more than the moving goal posts different locales are setting up to count cases. 

    If you’re @Quintus and @The Big Man you should be keeping an eye on this discrepancy. 

    We’ll know more once the actual data and study are published...

    If trends continue I expect the new President to order masks in place nationwide.


    Gykyer can say what he wants but in 20 years on my job I have never had 3 friends and co-workers die within a month of the same thing. Nor have I been the only healthly one able to work in a 6 person office. 2020 gives whether we want jt or not.

    I don't know anything about the Reset Theory, but in terms of a reset, there is something I'd like to see. It's for more men, specifically White Men, entering a workforce in the wake of ChinaVirus alongside millions of people affected by this to have to broaden their horizons, not take soulless IT computer or service industry jobs and opt for a masculine trade. Become laborers, join a union, do construction work. Put down the mouse and pick up a hammer. Blue collar workers, not just a bunch of cubicle farmers.


    More this:




    Less this:




    Are you blue-collaring it?

    These whackjobs get some creepy weirdo schaudenfreude from seeing businesses collapse and people chronically out of work. It's bizarre.

    Another lockdown coming in for us by the sounds of it. Whatever it takes to keep the strain off the health service, plus hopefully I'll get to spend some more time at home (fingers crossed). 


    Like chopping your hand off to take the edge off metastatic cancer at this point.

    You’re the big man, I think. I don’t know, maybe you’re not, but you’re the big man, I think. Your son said we have to give 10 per cent to the big man. What’s that all about? It’s terrible.


    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. Number of people testing positive for antibodies has dropped by 26%, after only months. Big clue that there is no long-lasting immunity. 



    It looks like immunity lasts around 7 months...




    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 bet is to mask up and try not to get a huge initial load, IF you have to get sick before there are cheap, seasonal vaccinations available. Big viral loads are how you get fucked up. 


  9. 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.

  10. 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 a slice of time, like Quintus, still think lockdowns weren’t necessary early on because they are not as necessary today.

  11. 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!

    You don't get to set arbitrary time frames for everyone though, especially when it's suggested during a rubbish attempt to mask your own back-peddling. 


    Why would I back pedal? I was and am right all through. 

  13. 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.
