Say goodbye to that - it's gone, dude - like car keys in lava or tears in rain.


What kind of lava?

If we conquer this virus, it will not be through science or strategic planning or any kind of intelligent, tactical decision-making, but through blunt brute force.

I know I've said that on a thread or two around here - the people calling it hoax and hype will pretend they never done so rather than admit to being wrong about it and reflecting that fact.


I only know of one person who did that - some of his FB posts early on were "this is a cold, it's nothing."  He runs for minor local government roles (and sometimes wins) so that comment mysteriously disappeared.

I worked for the guy back at the end of the 90s.  Him being a deceptive little weasel comes as no surprise.

Having said that, a friend's NYC father died from Covid and antibody tests came back for the people who live in the house - his wife, their son, and his wife.  All tested positive.  The wife was really sick in February.  The daughter-in-law was sick in February and March.  The son had zero symptoms.  All tested positive.

I was at a doctor yesterday and he was telling me that they had a shiatload of people presenting Flu symptoms from December onward that tested negative for Flu.

I am convinced that a couple years from now the 20/20 hindsight will show it was here in the US a helluva lot earlier and a helluva lot more widespread than is currently being reported.  The "first case" is listed as late February when it's known tissue samples from a woman who died in Cali on 2/5 tested positive.  That was 3 weeks before the Washing ton State nursing home OMFG incident.

Which is why I don't waste my breath talking politics to any Trumpers. I've been around a bunch of decades and while political disagreements have always existed, I have never before seen the soul-burning stupid we have today.

I wonder if those sign makers realize they are advocating eugenics.


I'm more disturbed by the shop owner's hugging fetish.

Conspiracies aside, there are people less prone to severe COVID-19. It goes by blood type:

https://www.newsweek.com/blood-type-c​o​ronavirus-covid-19-1492890

It is legit as far as I can tell and there are plenty of legit news sites carrying this info.

After that, males are hit harder. So there you go. A large group of Americans may not be immune to it, but there are large groups with a lot better odds than some.
