Flab: FarkQued: Kioto and Paris accords are not being followed, burning that much wax at one time may significantly warm or change the climate!

CNN Headline if Trump had done same.

When do we hear the real death numbers from China, India, Russia?

Your attempt at deflection has been noted.


Wait, that was a real comment? It was so stupid that I thought it was satire.

I can't help but think that if everybody was 100% on board with masks that we would have fewer deaths and most if not all businesses open.

Mr.Poops: I can't help but think that if everybody was 100% on board with masks that we would have fewer deaths and most if not all businesses open.


I was opposed to the idea of MLB playing at all last year.  But they did.  And since they did, they proved that, it turns out, (a) it's REALLY NOT THAT FARKING HARD to make a serious dent in the destruction this thing causes, and (2) They *should* have been used, loudly, as a massive life-saving lesson and platform for good societal practices for all of us.

All you _really_ have to do is:  Wear a mask.  Wash your hands.  Stay the fark out of restaurants.  Stay home as much as absolutely possible.  Minimize group gatherings that mingle regular contacts.  Be careful.

Proper testing and quarantine regimens are even better, but, really, wear a mask, wash your hands, don't gather in large, careless groups.

500,000+ lives would have been saved, SO FARKING FAR, if just basic, ffs *BASIC*, practices had been adopted when this thing broke loose in Jan/Feb last year.

If Trump had just stayed the fark out of the way and let doctors and scientists do their thing, he would have been reelected in a landslide.  It's too bad he's too mindbogglingly stupid and narcissistic to realize that, or we could at least know it was causing him pain and regret.

Last Good Friday, my church did their usual vigil. Typically, it's a standard in-sanctuary vigil, lasting from sunset Saturday to sunrise Sunday.

Last year was a solo vigil, single people in the sanctuary, and basically tagging out and in as the night progressed.

I took my Book of Common Prayer along, seemed appropriate. I let it fall open in my hand, and it fell on the rites for the dead.

Eerily appropriate.

...and everyone dies with or without bleach.

My point was you're a farking idiot spouting conspiracy theories. Bleached brain and all.

Which one was the conspiracy?

A) the fact that we have seasonal counts for every other illness
B) that we used to track medicine using science?

You never answer anything do you? You just post screen shots from unnamed sources that most people with a bit of intellect would find it immature and filled with fake bravado of what you think political discussions are about. It's really sad. Who is your hero? Please tell. Not that you won't be laughed at.


That is s link to the screenshot in the post.

Unright: fark'emfeed'emfish: How many flu deaths have there been since... Say 1900?

Seasonal counts are used for many crucial reasons when we track medicine using "science."

This is one of the dumbest spin I've ever heard.

Imagine demanding "seasonal counts" for a disease that hasn't been around for multiple years yet. Then putting science in scary quotation marks because you don't understand how a calendar works. That's a brain that doorknobs are too complicated.


Hmm it's 2021 right?

See how that works? You vould even go with a yesrly count if you honestly think there's no overlap between the flu and covid... It would still be a new year wouldn't it?

/Saving yearly counts of EVERY OTHER DEATH for some other clown.

solokumba: fark'emfeed'emfish: B) that we used to track medicine using science?

Can't wait for the answer.
Waiting.


You don't thin that we used to track medicine using science?

I mean heres a list of the top 10 causes of death in 2019 from the WHO.

It's clear he beats off to videos of Ben Shapiro, Steven Crowder and Tim Pool. But then again, maybe not. Maybe they are played out and there's someone new his ilk worships. Someone even more imbecilic and edgy. A new denizen among 'actually' incels who is five foot two and has an even higher pitched voice and an even greater Napoleon complex than Shapiro.

Because fark compassion and empathy. He'd rather be a dick.


You're myopic if you don't recognize that a global overreaction will impact millions more than the actual virus would with worse consequences... much like the cytokine storms that killed so many in treatment.

Your misguided empathy will pave the road to hell for 10s of millions of people who were already literally starving.

erik-k: fark'emfeed'emfish: solokumba: Somebody told me that the pandemic would suddenly be over when Joe took office. I think it was a butt hurt republican.

Weird, i thought it was a starstruck democrat.

/Nobody meant it would simply vanish though...
//But you knew that.
///You knew that right?

Wrong. No takesie backsies are granted on your previous lies. Attempted retcon denied.

Right wing plague rats, and you here in particular, were absolutely *adamant* that as soon as the election was over, the media would stop reporting about it, because they only cared about covid because it was part of the conspiracy of apparently literally everyone and everything to make Trump look like a horrible person (as opposed to the obvious truth that he is).

Then that did not happen because that was not reflective of reality.

As case numbers kept exploding and we were losing a 9/11 of Trump murder victims a day, the new fantasy became "as soon as the demmycrats is in power the media will stop reporting about it."

Now here we are starting our second month with sane adults in charge and it turns out *that* wasn't the reason it stays in the news either, so now you're trying to shift to "nuh uh we never said they'd stop talking about it."

Don't you people ****ing realize that other people independently remember what you said previously? This is adorable when it's a 4 year old child telling mommy she didn't take the chocolate that she just now moved to holding behind her back on AFV, not so much when it's an adult with a personality disorder trying to gaslight people.


When, exactly was tge election over again?

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: fark'emfeed'emfish: Seasonal counts are used for many crucial reasons when we track medicine using "science."

OK, I'll play.

It's clear that the COVID-19 "season" mirrors the influenza one, so we'll split at May 1

[cdc.gov image 582x349]

(Data from Worldometer)

Deaths in first COVID-19 season (inception to 1-May-2020) in the US: 67369
Deaths in Second COVID-19 season (1-May-2020 to present): 454,224* (Season not yet complete)

Deaths per flu season 2010 to present have ranged from 12,000 (2011-2012) to 61000 (2017-2018)
Average deaths per influenzaseason since 2010-present is 35,900.
Average deaths per COVID-19 season since inception: 260,800.


Yeah, there you go. That's a small part of what we're used to not seeing daily in broadcast news.

I dare you to look into lower respiratory infections, just do it for yourself.
