From the country that brought us all Totally Drug Resistant (TDR) Tuberculosis, what could possibly go wrong?

These people should be made to treat the sick, dying, and bury the dead.

Too old for this bullshiat.

One thing Covid has shown us it the number of people on this planet who are just plain stupid.

You'd think Darwin could just run up the score, but what if he has a heart attack from the exhaustion?

Are you telling me that the people that call me and tell me that Social Security number was suspended, may not be all the bright.

Well I'm flaberghasted

Well duh, in a nation of 1.5 billion it really isn't too hard to find and hire some crisis actors

Why not, merit these days is based on followers/payers, not on actually achieving results.
People buy how you make them feel.
See also Goop.

As a person telling people "there is no get rich/thin quick scheme that is healthy, I can be of service to take the more solid actual path", it pains me to see the charlatans make shed-loads of money and myself building my base one person at a time.
I lament not so much for myself, but for those that pay to get their heart (and body) broken.

I suppose he could prove it by being injected with the blood of untreated covid and HIV patients, but he might survive the covid or even have an asymptomatic case, and the HIV would take too long to kill him, so it would probably end up backfiring.

As long as your chance of actually getting the vaccine is pretty much zero you might as well say "I don't want it anyway." At least that way you can have the illusion of control.

Look at a standard deviation curve of IQ. I consider anyone under +1 to be an idiot. You shouldn't have needed covid to figure out there's plenty of stupid to go around.

"So, you gonna believe me, the guy who grew up in a pile of dirt and never graduated high school? Or them fancy, smart, egghead lame loser doctors who spent years, even decades, studying this shiat?"

Same thing goes for mommy bloggers. Dumb biatches spread their legs and pump out kids after MAYBE completing an associates degree in art history before meeting Chad the former high school jock and current small town cop, and suddenly they know that homeopathy works, snd prayer is the answer. Her "Live Laugh Love," sign in the living room should tell you all you need to know.

Well to be honest, Overpopulation is what sparked the black plauge, so maybe this will help cut down on my robocalls

Every country does and it is amazing to see the stupidity and selfishness at work. Bad enough they hold these views but some of them are super-active spreading the brain rot around. It's too bad social media platforms scythe these morons down for the public health risk they pose.

At this point, I think even the good Sir Darwin is shaking his desicated head in disgust at the level of pure, unadultereated, STUPID in the world atm.

They just need to be taken out on a walk in the woods, and not brought back.

You need to have some empathy and compassion to treat the sick.

I noticed that I have been getting less of those calls lately, so there's that at least.

Alternative option, if the asshat has unvacinated children.

Smallpox injection, and polio.  Even if they survive, they are farked for life.

Brad from Federal Reserve Law Enforcement hasn't been calling me as often lately. So, thank you COVID-19 for that?

Not wrong, but India's always been India, As in farked up, So is Nepal a few hundred miles upstream.


Basically the United States 40 years ago, or the EU 30 years ago.

I can't find it online, but Viceland aired a segment on the funeral pyres last night that was quite harrowing.

These two articles are a week old, but were very similar.

The human ability to deny reality when it'shiatting you right in the face is without limit.  I learned that watching my ex deny anything was wrong.

Covid is turning into the self-fulfilling prophecy that some of these morons have been going on about [ the elites want to reduce the population].  They're kinda doing it to themselves, or at least helping it along.

Auto-corrected/filter owned.  I left out the space in "it'shiatting" and it fixed it up for me.  It works.

Yeah, now.

And in that wishy washy "oh people should get it, of they want it. But a lot of people are saying..." blah blah rambling nonsense.

He starts his nonsense with  "According to me..."

At least he honest to that point. None of the "Many people believe..." or "Some people say..." crap

This is not a denier.  This is a quack trying to make a buck.  Has been going on forever and COVID is just the latest  news for them to jump on.

Yeah, but they are Bollywood crisis actors. One moment the guy is weeping in front of a camera, then the next he leaps 100 feet into the air, punches a helicopter out of the sky, and then lands in a group of 100 women, and they all dance for 5 minutes.

This is almost the definition of a self-correcting problem, unfortunately for the people who are going to be the correction.
