This farken thing AGAIN.

Sorry farkers. This stinks of "Urban Myth" cautionary tale that did not happen.

it has all the earmarks of a urban myth.
1)A Friend of a Friend
2)No verification of the story
3)A confession of being a dumbass...then dying. (with no verification)


All it needs is a "And there was a bloody hook on the door" to get a story shared around the socially distanced campfire.

And yeah sure...the major thing a 20 something will talk about on their deathbed is "I WAS A DUMB ASS"

Share and Share And Share this story.

Also... My Chubachabra liked this story.

HI GUIZE. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT KID THAT WENT TO THE CVOID PARTY.
I CAN"T BELIEVE THAT ...I MEAN I"VE SUCKED SOME GOATS BEFORE ON FIRE ISLAND.
BUT I NEVER REALLY GOT SICK FROM IT.

yeah. when i read a version of this yesterday it said "a covid party is where they all go to the house of someone who's tested positive to prove it's a hoax and no one else will get sick."

today's version says "Someone will be diagnosed with the disease, and they'll have a party to invite their friends over to see if they can beat the disease." -oh. it's not a hoax anymore?

last week's version said a "covid party" is "just like a chicken pox party, where they all try to build herd immunity." (nevermind that wouldn't be "herd immunity" for chicken pox OR covid).

look, americans are stupid. often really, REALLY stupid. but i'm not buying this particular story of "unnamed 30 year old, told an unnamed nurse, who totally told me, he should have believed but now he's dead!!!" as real.

we have enough accounts of specific, named americans who called this a hoax, and fought against masks, and now sadly have died.

spreading "covid party" urban legends can only make people dismiss the genuine specific accounts,

so stop it.

Ok, so what exactly is the downside to believing this story? I mean yeah, we can look him up, see the nurse's testimony. But what if it's fake? What happens if we all wear masks and socially distance? What happens when we all take precautions and fewer people get sick and die?

... it's a verified local news story consisting of direct quotes from a direct, on-the-record source.

I'm not sure what your definition of "urban myth" is but you should consider investing in a dictionary.  It's a second-hand account, but you're not going to get a lot of first-hand accounts from dead people and generally speaking the attending physician would be considered a pretty reliable source for the circumstances of someone's death.

There is no downside to believing that young people die of COVID-19, because it is absolutely true that they have and will. We need people to take that fact seriously. Linking that fact to a TidePod challenge style urban legend is not helpful.

I have been informed by Top Farkers that laughing at someone who died of Covid after said person claimed it was a hoax and refused to take any precautions, makes you just as bad as the ICE guys who lock kids in cages.

I get the logic, it's the same as what do I have to lose when wearing a mask (if they are wrong, it's just a piece of fabric on my fave for some time)

But this article is called news. Where is the reporter calling the nurse to verify the story?

One of the things that was heart-wrenching that he said to his nurse was, 'You know, I think I made a mistake.'

I hope the nurse replied "Yes, and you've put me at risk, and everyone else you've come into contact with. Well done."

How f**king stupid do you have to be to try to comfort and assuage yourself by telling yourself this story is "fake"?
Even if the story is "fake", the danger to the stupid and complacent is just as real.
Guess what: the story of the little shepherd boy and the wolf was "fake", too.
There was never any wolf, or shepherd.

Is Dr. Jane Appleby fake? My guess is they don't have permission to release details that could identify the victim.

ArcadianRefugee: For those who care: video from Dr Appleby:

https://news4sanantonio.com/news/local​/i-thought-this-was-a-hoax-patient-in-​their-30s-dies-after-attending-covid-p​arty

Mind you, the story is still "I heard it from someone else".

https://abcnews.go.com/US/30-year-man-​dies-attending-covid-party-thinking/st​ory?id=71731414


Given that the story is buried within three layers of deniability -- "I heard from someone that someone told someone" -- I'm still thinking this is urban legend material. (And like, cmon, the emotional confession right before dropping dead, what, did they not bother intubating him or sedating him)

I think this is probably designed as urban legend material, in sort of a white-hat hoax sort of way. Like, the doctor probably does see young people with covid, and probably some of them do say things like "I was an idiot I shoulda stayed home", and she probably does see some people dying, and she's probably heard of covid parties, so she spun them up together into an urban legend and told it to the local press in the hopes that it would spread among young people and convince them to be safe and stay home.

What I learned from Fark:
1) If you are rioting and looting for a good cause like BLM then it's just protesting, and are immune from COVID.
2)  If you go to a COVID party you acquire COVID immunity.
3)  Time spent with German hookers gives you COVID immunity as their political system is better than ours.
4)This is all Orange Man Bad's fault.
