Nope. Not a prime number.

Okay, fun game. but neither of the original numbers are prime...

I think I have a mental disability, because I am likely to spend the rest of today trying to come up with a next number that establishes a pattern.

see, the sequence I saw was 13(prime) 14(prime)


14 is not a prime number

flart blooger: amigafin: Read this as well about the flu death estimates:

https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/o​bservations/comparing-covid-19-deaths-​to-flu-deaths-is-like-comparing-apples​-to-oranges/

that's like comparing scientific american to popular mechanics.


Yeah, if I want to learn about virology, I read Popular Mechanics.

Florida is HUGE... we had more than that many per day in my county alone a while back.

thedingoatemybaby: Oh and BTW, the state is releasing some BS numbers on antibody testing. Guess about what number of Floridians have "positive antibody tests". Hint: false positive rates of similar tests are 5-10%. Go ahead, take a wild guess...


I would be interested in knowing the answer to that. I know people who still think they're going to go to Florida for vacation. I also read someplace where the Covid deaths are being under reported in Florida but like 58%.
As for my wild guess, I'll say 50% just to pull a number out of my hat.

donh: RoboZombie: Can someone help me out? I got int an argument with a friend ast night who said that the flu kills 60,000 people a year in the US and we never have a lockdown. I cannot find that number anywhere though....Seems high to me.
Also, I do know that this "season" for COVID is just starting, but I want to be able to address the 60,000 number

The CDC site reports https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fasta​ts/deaths.htm 55,672 deaths from influenza AND pneumonia in 2017.
Note the figure is two causes of death and for a whole year, not three-four months.
Y'all have fun now.


OK that's a good site. I was looking at another but could not figure out the  numbers. I'm dumb. Anyway, I got a hold of my BIL who is a doctor and he got the numbers for the last decade and it looks like 2018 was bad(~61,000), but an average over 10 years was more like 35,000. So maybe my friend(yes, he does watch Fox "News") was using that figure

Looks like they have room in the hospitals and that was what flattening the curve was supposed to be about. As long as that holds true let the knuckleheads do what they want.
