Once the virus has already entered the body, spraying alcohol on your boy or drinking it cannot kill it

WTF did I just read?

I don't know about the virus, but it can certainly help me in avoiding the currently overblown hysteria

Yes, but it is just a matter of how much.

Coronavirus kills the weak cells.  Alcohol depletes that food source.

With a name like Max Pooper, getting pissed pants drunk sounds within the norm.

How about drinking Sterno. Asking for a friend.

Alcohol lowers your immune response.

Look at all the preparation that went in to that spontaneous display of exuberance!

It's a new virus and the science could be flawed so I'm not taking my chances

You see, "your boy" is a colloquial way of saying "your friend," particularly used in urban communities. They mean don't spray alcohol, such as champagne, on your friends for sanitizing purposes, particularly when out at the club.


Or it could just be a typo.

If you are a sloppy drinker who spills a lot on himself, and drinks Everclear, it might  help.
If you don't light yourself on fire.

I can't help but notice, they said nothing about its effectiveness as a preventive. I'll keep up the heavy drinking and let y'all know if ot works.

/so far, so good

Same here, just took a trip involving the busiest airport in the world, had a few drinks each day & I feel fine.

In the interest of thoroughly eradicating any leftovers I think I'll spend the 14 incubation period with a similar treatment.

Agreed, if the virus cannot survive in a poisoned ecosystem then effectively cannot become infected.

My theory: If 60% alcohol hand sanitize can kill it on the outside,
Then if 60% of what I put inside me is also alcohol, I should be fine.

I mean, it's not a good theory, but it's what I'm going with.

It's testable and therefore science!

Alcohol kills human pathogens. I drink heavily and I cant remember the last time I was sick 🤔

Personal experience tells me to keep on doing what I've been doing!
