Ah, the blood of children. Is there anything it _can't_ solve?

Smoothies - really the way to go.

Perhaps we can just drink breast milk. Breast milk and child blood smoothie, anyone?

Subby, what do you mean start?

You haven't? Why do you think they call it a bloody mary?

If that's the case, we atheists should have a built-up immunity by now.

I think their carriers. Daycare centers build hyper immune systems.

Yellow fever kills adults almost half the adults it infects. In children it's a mild flu.

Beats me.  That's little Oscar in your cocktail right now.

This is so sad.

A child should never outlive his/her parents.

It's not that I don't like children, I can just never eat a whole one.

I've seen how this turns out. Freaky episode.
 
2020-02-20 10:20:13 AM  
That's misleading.  Children still develop the pneumonia known for its 'ground glass' inclusions.  They're just better at dealing with it.  Secondary infections are still possible, and without supportive care they may die. The advantage they have is that an immature immune system is far less likely to experience hypercytokinesis ending in death.

wasn't there a Star Trek episode with a planet where all the adults died, and children ran things, and when they hit a certain age, they would get sick and die too?
 
2020-02-20 10:25:56 AM  
Huh, those with a young vibrant immune system are better able to fight off infection than frail old people or those with compromised immune systems...who knew.
 
2020-02-20 10:26:32 AM  
This proposal seems modest.

Professor, without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for our viewers to crack
each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?

I'm pretty sure I saw this movie description while sleepily scrolling through Netflix, looking for something to watch.

No way! That's a stupid idea. Star Trek would never stoop so low.

The dietary fiber helps stabilize your blood sugar levels.

Recoil Therapy: Huh, those with a young vibrant immune system are better able to fight off infection than frail old people or those with compromised immune systems...who knew.


Yep. Though this is even more dramatic than normal. Of all the under 10 year old victims so far, some 500 if I remember the study correctly, exactly 0 died. Between 10 and 39, CFR is 0.2% (which is five-to-ten times the seasonal flu, which has an 0.02-0.05% CFR). 40-49 is 0.4%.

Older than 49? It starts ramping up. 80+? Almost 17%.

This is why I grumble at "this is just another flu." It's a flu that kills an order of magnitude more young adults, and spreads vastly faster.

I'm up for pizza.  One Hillary Special with a side of Pelosis Bread sticks and extra 'dipping sauce'.

Small child + everclear = alcoholic blood of children.

The Spanish Influenza of 1919 disproportionately killed more healthy young/middle aged adults than it did children and old geezers. There are a couple of sounds theories as to why, but nothing full-on proven.
