    Oh look, yet again they're bringing up the alternative approach which some of us argued for many months ago:



    The crucial difference being that the media is now also coming around to that way of thinking. Funny that. 


    It is up to the elderly and the other higher risk groups to use their common sense and avoid risky public spaces. The rest of productive society can no longer continue to jeopardise their own futures for demographic groups who are largely capable of looking after themselves, with help measures put into place. There shouldn't be an expectation from the elderly that the rest of the world will put themselves damagingly on hold indefinitely, just for them. 



    Many months ago you were wrong.

  2. 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 the expense of the taxpayer.

    At least 8 people who attended the Rose Garden Event have been infected. 99% didn't wear a mask or respected social distancing. In fact, they pretended if as COVID-19 doesn't exist. Talk about 'karma'!

    You've said I hate it. When that's not what I've said at all. I like it. It's just that it's nothing new, so there's not much to say about it.

    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!

    Wtf? The man has a deadly incurable disease and we're not allowed to wish him well? What kind of evil voodoo mental gymnastics is this?

    You don’t need a Twitter meme to do that. Keep your Twitter crap out of here!


    Low effort reposting is annoying.

    All of this discussion about the gunbarrel cue...why hasn't anyone pointed out it's just a minor re-arrangement of Newman's gunbarrel from SPECTRE, which is a re-arrangement of Arnold's version of the Bond theme from Casino Royale. There's nothing to analyze here!


    Why don’t you leave the thread then?

    What's weird though is there's a high proportion of blue check mark types who engage in that filth, and are obviously considered by Twitter to be individuals who occupy a certain level of prominence and high profile.

    All those quick to mock Trump for catching the virus are being very short-sighted: it's quite possible he could experience only minor symptoms before returning to the campaign trail - his scepticism and ambivalence towards coronavirus more dangerously solidified than ever before. 


    Yep. The balance of probability is still in favor of his survival, even though he’s way more likely to die than say you or I. Not accounting for the fact that he has access to healthcare and treatment options Quintus and Blume do not have. 


    I hope he recovers but with enough of a bite to show him he needs to take care of the vulnerable population.

    I can hardly breathe in the fuckin thing. Get rid of them.


    If your lungs don’t got what it takes, you’re off to the glue factory, Godzilla!

  10. In the South, we don’t have people giving each other the stink eye. Almost all people are wearing their masks and going about their day. When they get far from each other, they take em off and breathe. We even dine outdoors without masks while distanced from others. 


    Australia, like California, must be a nation of cowards.

    Better than avoiding triggers and then one day snapping and burning a neighbors shop down as a “protest!”


    Besides, our struggle filters the weak newbies.

    Casting a line for Blume [FLAME ON!!!]...



    I naturally agree word for word with Prof. Sunetra Gupta at the beginning of the report. Like untrendy garments, everything eventually comes back into fashion.


    How I now picture Blume because I uttered the "H" and "I" words again:




    Bro, read what I've said in this thread. "We don't know if herd immunity is possible with this virus" ≠ "there is no herd immunity."


    Nothing's changed yet. We still don't know nuthin about herd immunity and COVID When you don't know, err on the side of being careful. The only evidence in favor of it is that Southeast Asia is fairing shockingly well, but that seems to be herd immunity acquired over time to other varieties of coronaviruses. 


    If you are a blind worshipper of the Church of Herd 'Munity, rally together and go screw some HIV+ people and let me know how that Herd 'Munity works out for you.

    Comment as-tu appris francais Blume?


    Mme Blume parle courament. Je lui apprends le Mandarin. Elle m'apprend le Francais. 


    Avec Francais, je connais cinq langues. How I impressed Mrs. Blume! I knew English and German growing up. Added Japanese around high school. Good way to pick up women back then in college. Picked up Mandarin while I was a salaryman having to go back and forth to and from China.
