Bennie Crabtree: If you look at the racial demography for covid victims you get a pretty decent idea of the obesity demography for North America. There is a correlation.


No, you don't. Blacks are twice as likely to die versus whites, despite blacks being not only a minority but only 10% more likely to be obese. Have you actually looked at racial demographics of covid and obesity? It literally took me longer to write this than it did to find the statistics.

If you looked at maps with poverty, poor social infrastructure, and historical racism you'll find that a lot of fat people live there. It's literally more correct for me to say that coronavirus and voting for Republicans has more correlation than covid to obesity.

Stibium: Chain Smokes Freely: I would argue that we are addressing the epidemic of morbid obesity. We are throwing everything we have at them to try to protect them.

"If you look at the United States of America with our epidemic of obesity as it were, with the number of people with hypertension, with the number of people with diabetes, if everyone got infected, the death toll would be enormous and totally unacceptable," Dr. Fauci said.

I would argue that if you were actually trying to argue in good faith that you were literally a moron. But I know you aren't arguing in good faith so it's all good. Bland, weak, and transparently obvious. Honestly it's just a self-reflection of an insipid and pathetic nihilist who doesn't believe in anything except his immediate surroundings.It's like all the stinking desperation of trying to act like a good lil' MAGAt with none of Trump's aplomb: very sad and low energy.You must be one of the new guys!


I've spent a fair amount of time in Rhode Island. The population is not a very healthy population. Lots of drinkers, drug addicts, processed food consumers. It's not a bad faith argument to question why the world should lock down to protect people who have spend a lifetime killing themselves. The other population at risk is the elderly population, but even there the mortality rate is low. In fact, a majority of the people who have died with COVID in this population are older than the life expectancy age.

You can throw up all the temp field hospitals you want. That's easy... it's not even like you're gonna be bumping off anyone else from using the convention center at this point. But it's not going to magically make the doctors or nurses you need to staff them appear, though.

The American medical system is headed towards a simultaneous overload-induced crash shutdown everywhere, all at once. In March, they were shipping doctors and nurses from across the nation to New York to help them hold on and keep providing care. Now, there is nowhere to take from that isn't worse than that already.

And the mass deaths that this leads to that *aren't* covid - in the form of untreated (insert medical problem here) turning fatal - you can be absolutely sure the lying, sociopathic liars will be out in force lying about how they "don't count" as being due to covid.

I said drug addicts. And that is a firm affirmative ... lots of heavy smokers. So far I haven't seen too many news articles about vegan fitness freaks dying from COVID. There is the odd super-stimulus headline about a 20-something who died "of COVID" but when you read deeper you find out there was an undiagnosed (sp?) heart condition or something, so the death was really "with COVID".

Don't misunderstand me. I do not think COVID is a hoax. I just think it's a fraud by over-reaction.

SteveGrogansGoat: You don't get it. Everyone wears masks around here with zero drama. Thanksgiving was via Zoom, and I cooked the first turkey in my life. Christmas is cancelled, and probably New Years. We take this stuff seriously, and we are getting level-decked with this thing. I'm grounding my aged parents, I will be doing their shopping, as my little nuclear family all caught it in April and have mostly recovered. Antibodies, I hope. But my Dad had both his knees replaced before the Surge, and has to have physical therapists come three times a week. They all wear masks, and direct the exercises from across the room. We stand in line at target to get in.

That's how we do in Rhode Island.

It's going to be a bloodbath in Texas and Florida. The Little Red States with isolated communities sooo far away from any hospital and incompetent leadership have no idea what's coming for them. This thing is going to kill more Americans than WWII.


Well, yeah, masks help but they do not protect like latex gloves. The longer this plague lasts, the more people will get infected as the virus slips between nose and mask, or gets carried inside on somebody's coat, and so on. I believe you. I also think your report is important because it should remind all of us, we cannot stay home too much. Every minute we are at home and alone, the better.
 
2020-11-30 11:38:59 PM  
Not many people who to go into field hospitals get better, they are going there to get some palliative care to make dying suck a little less, perhaps also to lower the likelihood of spreading the virus to family members who would become defacto care givers. People who claim COVID-19 is no big deal if you get proper treatment should be last in line to get any treatment, IMHO.

So you're fine with people who have undiagnosed heart conditions dying?  You think worrying about their lives is an overreaction?

I'm just trying to understand where you're drawing the line, here.  Are you saying that we are putting too much effort into trying to save the lives of people who, through no fault of their own, are vulnerable to dying from Covid-19?

Chain Smokes Freely: It's not a bad faith argument to question why the world should lock down to protect people who have spend a lifetime killing themselves.


Then you should ask that question. My answer to that is that lockdowns and mask mandates aren't for the tiny minority of addicts and people who have terrible diets. Lockdowns and mandates are there so fewer people in general suffer lifelong complications, which dwarfs the immediate short-term societal costs of having most of the elderly and otherwise sickly culled.

Death is preferable to surviving with nonfunctioning kidneys and lungs that are worse than 90 year old chainsmoker. That holds true for society in general.

It's like someone who wonders why scientists don't just shoot the water into the sun so sea level rise won't happen, and because we can't or won't we shouldn't do anything. Considering the societal costs, it would have cost far less to have started serious alternative energy endeavors fifty years ago than it is now, but even though that is true we should still do it now because it's even more expensive to sit on your ass and watch TV until the tide literally rolls through the front door.

Most people who were admitted in Wuhan when this started didn't smoke (it was like 80% of patients were nonsmokers), which is curious because half the men in China smoke and covid hits men harder. Then there's the immunosuppressant factor of alcohol which could mean alcoholics are more likely to have mild to moderate symptoms.

Also, when you shoot people with cancer, the coroner writes down "homicide" as the cause of death, not "lead poisoning (with cancer)."

If a doctor had to chose to examine a person, but could only chose one article of PPE, do you think he's going to take the mask or the gloves?

That's a chart of excess deaths for the year - i.e. those in excess of the average for the year across the previous 5 years. We are currently around 350k excess deaths, or the entire population of either Anaheim, California or Honolulu, Hawaii. For perspective, imagine every one of these buildings full of corpses, and nothing living in the city limits:

It's also equivalent to the entire population of Hiroshima, Japan, at the time of the dropping of the atomic bomb.

You are really bad at looking at the root cause of things, like poverty, geography of social marginalization, the somatic responses to abuse, and the like. You're very spirited, and very quick on the draw, but not good at the kind of analysis that you seem to be reaching for.

You are correct, it's more akin to the doctor seeing many patients all day. So again I ask, if a doctor were to be examining patients all day and could only wear one article of PPE, would he chose the mask or the gloves?

I mean, seriously, have you even given a moment's thought about what you said? How many people touched that gallon of milk you bought the other day? A handful? I suspect the truth of the matter is that you actually cross within 6 feet of 10 times more people than in a single trip than all the people who touched the milk between when you put it in the fridge and when it came out of the cow's tits. I also suspect that you probably aren't doing mushrooms 24/7 so you are aware that things on the shelf don't actually breathe, and that people do, which is important to remember when dealing with an airborne pandemic.

It would indeed be nice to live in a world where coronavirus spreads primarily by surface contact, but that is unfortunately not at all the case.

This is not a new problem that has spiked in the last few months.

I'll help you: He does. He's one of those who does not believe hospitals are full. He does not believe anyone has died of COVID, or at least not very many. And he does not believe that people are getting sick who weren't already suffering from "something else" like being overweight or oldness, or drug use, or smoking or over-youth, or heart disease, or vegetarianism or carnivorism, or, you know, whatever it was that they had that killed them besides COVID.

I realize you are Just Asking QuestionsTM, but if you asked the right people, say, who work in Emergency Rooms in NYC and Philly, they will, after sighing and resisting the urge to punch you square on the nose, assure you that this is very real. Just the other day my cousin's wife (ER nurse in Philly) said on a Tday Zoom that it's starting to feel like it felt in springtime when they had people dying in the hall.

If you want theater, you should check out the "Hearings" Rudy G is having, which at face value, are too ridiculous to describe.

Yeah sure. Obese people never existed before Murica in all of human history. Obese people are not normal. They have mental issues. Basically every single obese people I've known in my life was deeply sad and literally ate their feelings, eating is the only comfort they have... and of course by the time they get obese and ugly, you get rejected even more and you eat even more. its a never ending cycle until the mental part is there.

Obesity kills a million people a year and people are still in denial thats its a problem. Denying your mental illness and the effects it has on your body is good and all but it doesnt solve shiat.

Basically every single obese people I've known in my life was deeply sad and literally ate their feelings, eating is the only comfort they have... and of course by the time they get obese and ugly, you get rejected even more and you eat even more. its a never ending cycle until the mental part is there.

Obesity kills a million people a year and people are still in denial thats its a problem. Denying your mental illness and the effects it has on your body is good and all but it doesnt solve shiat.


And as we all know from posters here, it's highly contagious.

SteveGrogansGoat: You don't get it. Everyone wears masks around here with zero drama. Thanksgiving was via Zoom, and I cooked the first turkey in my life. Christmas is cancelled, and probably New Years. We take this stuff seriously, and we are getting level-decked with this thing. I'm grounding my aged parents, I will be doing their shopping, as my little nuclear family all caught it in April and have mostly recovered. Antibodies, I hope. But my Dad had both his knees replaced before the Surge, and has to have physical therapists come three times a week. They all wear masks, and direct the exercises from across the room. We stand in line at target to get in.

That's how we do in Rhode Island.

It's going to be a bloodbath in Texas and Florida. The Little Red States with isolated communities sooo far away from any hospital and incompetent leadership have no idea what's coming for them. This thing is going to kill more Americans than WWII.


You're only a few dozen thousand away from that number as it is right now.

gadian: To be fair, that's largely what covid care is, in general, once people are so sick they're admitted anywhere.


It's not quite that bad. About 10% of COVID cases require hospital admission. About 10% of those require ventilation in an ICU, and about 80% of those die.

Thank you.  We need to hear from more adults like you.  You give us all hope.

lolmao500: bobbyjoebobby: Stibium: Bennie Crabtree: If you look at the racial demography for covid victims you get a pretty decent idea of the obesity demography for North America. There is a correlation.

No, you don't. Blacks are twice as likely to die versus whites, despite blacks being not only a minority but only 10% more likely to be obese. Have you actually looked at racial demographics of covid and obesity? It literally took me longer to write this than it did to find the statistics.

If you looked at maps with poverty, poor social infrastructure, and historical racism you'll find that a lot of fat people live there. It's literally more correct for me to say that coronavirus and voting for Republicans has more correlation than covid to obesity.

And the reason you blame obesity and not your company is?

Chain Smokes Freely: Is it possible the hospitals are at "capacity" because of the hypertensive diabetic obesity epidemic in the United States? I think this whole thing is nothing but theater.


One would assume that your username references cigarettes. One would be wrong.

Looks like a repurposed warehouse. I'd be more worried about the ventilation than the cold.

Convention Center.

I can tell because looking at that picture, my first thought is to scan for what looks like an out of the way bathroom.


You are correct sir. Not like they're using it for anything right now. Place is about 25 years old now so who knows what the 90s ventilation will do....

It's a repurposed office building.

Right down the street from me.

And yet our infection rate is nearly 9%.

RI has one of the worst infection rates in the country right now.

So, not everyone is doing as you (and I) are
