US: *nominates new Supreme Court Justice for the purpose of curtailing women's reproductive autonomy*
US President: *gets COVID*

Poland: *passes law severely curtailing women's reproductive autonomy*
Polish President: *gets COVID*

Christians: "If we were being evil, God would give us a sign.  Anyway this is probably the liberals' fault."

/had a former super-religious college classmate who had 6 kids by age 30 and then started miscarrying a lot so went for fertility treatment which wasn't working, and her family was begging her to stop having kids because she couldn't handle the ones she already had, but she insisted that "God will give me a sign" when it's time for her to stop having kids, and apparently the serial miscarriages and infertility wasn't it.

WTP 2: Dead on the River: Not wearing a mask is equivalent to screen doors on a submarine.

wearing a mask is like wearing a screen door on your face.
if you can easily breath through it, the virus can get through it.


A) Nope! Viruses are not smaller than air molecules. Furthemore, even if the holes in the mask are bigger than the virus (they are), that does not mean it doesn't stop some of the viral particles--Viral load is important. If you stacked several mesh screens together, it would, in fact, pass water more slowly (and catch some of the water) especially if they weren't aligned perfectly, because that's how physics works.
B) Just because the holes are bigger than the viral particles does not mean the mask doesn't stop them. At that size scale, electrostatic charge and other surface-level forces begin to have serious effects.
C) The ENTIRE farkING POINT of the mask is it makes it harder for an infected person to spread the disease. The mask provides the most protection to everyone else. And because this is a virus where you can spread it a good bit before you come down with symptoms, that's why it's important for everyone to wear a mask.

In short:

Not only are you wrong, you're wrong at almost every conceivable magnification in several ways! Congratulations for achieving Fractal Wrongness, now shut the fark up.

Alphax: Headline is worth a chuckle.

The chart of rising cases in Poland is rather horrifying.


But sadly not surprising, given their current GOP-wannabe government and its dismantling of decades of progress.

I was saying months ago that maybe after one or two world leaders got Covid that the rest of the world would go "OMG we better get our shiate together."

Nope.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: dbaggins: So, fascism-curious President downplays COVID, then catches it along with a huge surge in cases all across the country.  Sounds familiar.   Do your cops murder your minorities a lot?   Outlaw abortion?  deprive gay people civil rights?   well, on the bright side, let's see where Poland lands on the corruption index? oh. sorry.

Minorites in Poland? Doubt it.


Hitler and Stalin homogenized Poland.  For minorities, they make do with Ukrainians working jobs that Poles would rather do in Western Europe and the remnants of the remnants of their Jewish community, plus Kashubians.
