Twits & Pieces

Here's a bunch of things which, while interesting, just really can't be full posts.

McDonald's introduces its new "Double Big Mac," replacing the former menu item called "two Big Macs."

Millennials are taking advantage of the current low airfares.

"I feel like if the coronavirus would get even more serious and like wipe out a large amount of people, I might as well be somewhere having fun," Henkel told NBC News in a message.


David French is making very transparent -- and dishonest -- arguments about why Joe Biden should refuse to debate Sanders.

It's because French knows that Biden is senile, of course, but wants to help the Democrat Machine hide that from voters.

Did Jesus appear to you and tell you that Biden must cancel the debate, Pharisee?

The left continues whining that it's so uncivil to notice Joe Biden's obvious creeping (galloping?) dementia.

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi continues claiming Trump should be "tested" for any neurological defects.

I'd like to see this sagging whore tested for something.

This is the way I like to see the New York Times:


Note: Soothsayer points out that this is from 12:45 am -- you know, in the middle of the night. This is a cleaning crew. What's the panic?

More on the media's deliberate attempt to create mass hysteria for political gain.

The CIA used to do this.


Leftwingers and media hacks and NeverTrumpers -- but, as always, I repeat myself thrice -- really have all their eggs in this Chinese Flu basket.


The Brother-F**king Illegal Immigrant Fraudster is claiming that saying "Chinese coronavirus" is "racist."

By the way, you fucking illiterate: It's proper to say "Chinese coronavirus" because coronaviruses are common but it's only this new Chinese mutation we're concerned with. The rest cause stuff like the common cold.

The New York Times can't decide if it's racist to call a flu originating in China a Chinese flu:

This guy had a good Twitter thread showing that the media is "gaslighting" us, first calling COVID-18 "the Wuhan flu," "the Wuhan virus," the "Chinese coronavirus," etc., before lecturing us all that their previous nomenclature was racist and that we all need to Be Better.


Now, this is racist: the Iraqi Islamic "scholar" who claimed that coronavirus was God's vengeance on the infidel has now, get this, contracted coronavirus.

The coronavirus is Islamophobic.

Be better, coronavirus.

No laughing matter here: Italy is being ravaged by the Wuhan Flu.

All out of My Dog Ate My Homework and Gave Me Coronavirus excuses, and with a judge quite beyond the limits of his patience, Hunter Biden settles with his babymama.

In related news, Burisma is proud to welcome its newest member of the board, Hunter Biden's Stripper Bastard. The eight month old infant will be handling Burisma's natural gas futures portfolio. And-- DINOSAURS!!!

Update: The New York Times editor who thought that you could divide up Michael Bloomberg's $500 million campaign spend among the 320 million people in the country and give them each $1 million says that making fun of her innumeracy and ignorance is -- wait for it...! -- racism.

Five days ago:

We laughed at Brian Williams, too.

Was that racist?

Or should we just have made fun of him and avoided making fun of you for... reasons?

True: The #Woke Identity Brigades are making it very clear that the only group for whom achievement and accountability are demanded are Straight White Men.

So why hire someone from a group with Infinite Excuses?

++++++++++++
MATH! How does it work?!

Unless the mortality rate is very very high, then this *will* happen as you start testing. At the beginning, you test really sick people. Many have it. Many of those die. They you test sick people. Many have it. Far fewer of those die. Then you test lots of people at scale. Some have it. Few of those die.

Unless the mortality rate is extremely high, wider-scale testing will reduce the mortality rate because it *has* to or the numbers don't add up.

53 Scoff all you want but let's face reality: The general, non-ideological electorate is fickle and ill-informed.

Blame Trump, praise Trump; it doesn't matter what the two sides do. In the end, the general populace will turn sour on him if the media narrative is allowed to perpetuate into the fall.

Doesn't matter how good the economy has been these past several years, or the jobs numbers, etc. None of that matters today.

Republicans laughing at the Democrat implosion are in for a rude awakening if the virus story doesn't die by, let's say, labor day.

"Mortality rate dropping as more people are tested" - YES! Of course! It's a simple mathematical function. People are taking incomplete data and making mathematical calculations, which are of course worthless unless you have COMPLETE data! Without complete data, any calculations can be off by a full order of magnitude up or down.

post from last thread:

424 A typical seasonal flu has a mortality rate on the order of 0.2%. This thing is something like five or ten times as dangerous as the flu if you manage to contract it. The 1918 Spanish flu was pushing 2%, so 1.5% would be pretty damn dangerous for a flu.
Posted by: Ace's liver at March 11, 2020 04:42 PM (wGeit)

that's only if you assume that everyone who's contracted the virus has gone to a hospital and been diagnosed. But if there is a significant number of people who've contracted it without experiencing symptoms requiring a doctors care, then all of the mortality rate numbers so far are skewed far above what they actually are.

I think this could be called a Category Error - the assumption that because we have some knowledge of a situation, we have Full knowledge of a situation, and that just isn't so. And of course we will all say oh yes, we know we don't have full knowledge, but then go ahead and make mathematical assumptions when they could be wrong by a full order of magnitude up OR down.

Good question. There's got to be something else going on behind the scenes. I've just looked at a chart of infections/mortality worldwide and only China and S. Korea are topping Italy.

EXACTLY! What have we been saying here for Days? Italy's public health system is giving palliative care only to the elderly in order to eliminate these heavy resource users from the system. Now they're campaigning openly to just give a couple of aspirin to anyone who's elderly and who's got the virus, and tell them to go home and die quietly.

Socialized Medicine, in a nutshell.

we all pray this is just a flu season type thing and when the weather changes...

but we don't know

it's good to be pre-emptive because hind sight is foolish

Trump moving on this right away was the right thing to do, no matter what these tools say. Saving us time to get on top of it. That is the mark of a true leader. Thinking it could be bigger than ever and acting on that. This is a simple thing for a real leader. It's instinct. Always think the worst and act. They do not hesitate to do what it takes, no matter the naysayers. We will never know how many lives he may have saved with his quick actions.

Sick of the left. Sick of the nevertrumpers who are drooling fat idiots. And watching Bernie get on tv and lie and lie and lie with the rest of them. Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler, etc. They all make me sick.

Just looked it up. The media age of the Italian population is 47.3 compared to 38.3 for the US. Mortality rates are not age adjusted, which they should be for a proper comparison. If your population is much older, you're going to have higher absolute mortality rates for anything.

Also, if you get a cluster of some disease in a given area, the mortality rate will rise because of the stress on the local health care system, taxing the resources.

This is what is happening in Northern Italy.

Well, in a sense, yes.

The people panicking are not those who have a reason to panic, since most (well, a large number of the panickers, at least) do not fit into these categories.

Everyone should have care and be safe, but on a practical level, there is a great deal of biological deadwood in modern society. Thanks be to God there is, and that we are compassionate and caring as a society.

But Mother Nature is a stone cold bitch, and will scythe through the infirm like a hot knife through butter during an epidemic. In this case, most people will be fine, so there's not the same need for panic.

It's not a "trivial math error". It's 6 orders of magnitude, but that's not the point. The point is it's a fundamental error in, hell, reality based thinking.

To come up with "1 million dollars per person" and not immediately think, "heck, that can be right, there's not that much money in the world by a long shot" is the problem.

This shows the lefty "eat the rich" mentality. They really think that the world's billionaires and "rich" have that much money. If it could just be "equitably redistributed", all the world would be well off.

You can misread my posts however you like.

If you provide for your mother carefully, keep her isolated, and don't breathe near her, she will be fine. That's the harsh fucking truth of it. The disease spreads by breathing (not even cough or sneeze), stays in the air for hours, and remains viable on surfaces for days, maybe over a week.

Everyone who interacts with other human beings over the next two months is going to be getting the goddamned bug.

Coronaviruses are the family of viruses that
cause Colds - not the flu - which is a different kind of virus.
Covid-19 is a particularly deadly version of a cold virus.


It is not
Smallpox, which was far more contagious and a far more hardy virus,
existing with the human population for thousands of years, and killing
1/3 of the people who got it. We beat Smallpox, and we will beat
Covid-19 and much more quickly.

419 there are so many China Virus factors we don't know with any certainty ... the dooms
day forecast takes the worst of each factor and multiplies them out for end of the
world, inescapable scenarios. They call all that doubt them "stupid,
uninformed" ... etc.


Better treatment as S Korea seems to be
doing has their death rate below 1% ... a milder strain is discussed,
might reduce the rate further ... public awareness may protect the more
vulnerable as they self isolate from crowds ... warmer weather may
shorten the life span of the virus on surfaces (it prefers 48 ) ... Americans may well be more healthy in general, better informed and more concerned about protection ... and have better care facilities at the ready ... new effective treatments advancing by the day ... could be several factors that completely change the equation.


All
that might reduce real ChinaVirus death rate down toward normal flu levels (say
maybe 0.2%), but with only 10% of the national infection rate (compared to flu) since we have
restricted travel and it is not nationwide. But sure, we
should continue to monitor and advise ... act if necessary.

People do tend to make these decimal errors with big numbers trying to do them in a calculator who haven't had experience. They try to key in all the zeros, lose track and mess up. Or just mess up how many zeros to put in.

Say we want to divide Mini-Mike's whole fortune amongst the total US population. That's 60 billion over 327 million.

There's no need to worry about the zeros, just think in scientific notation/powers of a thousand. A billion is a thousand million, and cancel out the million.

We have 60K/327 = 183.49.

457 "The disease spreads by breathing (not even cough or sneeze), stays in the air for hours, and remains viable on surfaces for days, maybe over a week."

No, the virus needs to be carried by droplets either of mucous or water. It isn't airborne of its own accord. As far as circulation in air, it's like any other. It can float around as an aerosol for about an hour or less, typically less. It's viability in mucous/water outside the body isn't that high since it is an ssRNA strand and external RNAses will devour it quickly.

That doesn't mean its spread won't be high (like flu/cold), but it isn't a superbug. It isn't ebola or bubonic plague.

Then we need to define what third world means.
Do they have modern plumbing, electricity, easily navigable highways and an infrastructure to support a population that generates a thriving global economy? Does the population enjoy an easily available food source that they can consume without having had to get it as a result of their hard relentless labor in the fields? Do their children have their own clothing and toys and not have to depend on hand-me-downs? Do they go to school and graduate high school at least without being consigned to work on the farm at an early age?
I can't answer those questions for China and India. But I know that in Italy all those conditions apply.

GDP per capita is the better metric, but this can be skewed for places that are tax havens and have large financial centers. I think Luxemburg and Lichentstein have ridiculously high GDP per capita because of this.

You also need to normalize for purchasing power when you convert to a common currency unit by using the price of a common basket of good. Depending on the basket, you get slightly different values.

Italy is roughly #33 on the GDP per capita, compared to the US which is #10. There is some variation in rank.

And that Italian GDP per capita is about twice the mean for all countries.

517 457 "The disease spreads by breathing (not even cough or sneeze), stays in the air for hours, and remains viable on surfaces for days, maybe over a week."

No, the virus needs to be carried by droplets either of mucous or water. It isn't airborne of its own accord. As far as circulation in air, it's like any other. It can float around as an aerosol for about an hour or less, typically less. It's viability in mucous/water outside the body isn't that high since it is an ssRNA strand and external RNAses will devour it quickly.

That doesn't mean its spread won't be high (like flu/cold), but it isn't a superbug. It isn't ebola or bubonic plague.

Glad you've spent some time studying this particular coronavirus, since the actual infectious disease epidemiologist who was discussing Wuhan virus said something very different from you, Doctor.

559 I learned something astounding recently:

In California, it is ILLEGAL to give an IQ test to a black person, due to a lawsuit the state lost several years ago, in which a black mother complained that the test given to her son (which determined him to be mentally retarded) was "racist." The court agreed, and forbade any future IQ testing of black students.

As a result, when various school districts try to determine which students need "extra help" (i.e get put in the bonehead classes), all the non-black students are given IQ tests to help determine their "placement" -- while the black students are not given a test, BUT ARE PRESUMED TO BE MENTALLY RETARDED ANYWAY SO THEY CAN BE GIVEN THE MAXIMUM LEVEL OF HELP, because the goal of the "extra help" system is to "eliminate the achievement gap" by inflating the grades of black students.

I was told this, quite casually, by a left-wing "remedial instruction" teacher at a local high school.

As a result -- some huge percentage of black students in California are deemed to be retarded by the left-dominated education system, "for their own benefit."

The mind reels.

560 After looking at Mara Gay's whining...

Elevator Pitch to Hallmark Cards:

We need a "I'm A Victim" intersectionality advancement cards.

Since Millennials and the Left have absolutely no empathy or regard for the well being of others they are not likely to identify another person's misfortune and send them sympathy cards.

So lets create a class of cards that is intended to be bought by the victim and the hopeful recipient of misguided sympathy AND to also announce one's own self promotion in the intersectionality ranking order.

In Mara's case, as a black woman, she is higher than black men and white women, but to advance she needs to, at a minimum, gouge out an eye, come out as sexually confused or become a Muslim. Sometimes these transitions require actual effort and life style changes which are too inconvenient.

So here we have a line of cards that a wanna-be victim can purchase and distribute announcing that they are victims of racism, sexism, age-ism, scared by a MAGA hat or some other offense to Wokeism.

Potential victims can purchase cartons of these cards and pass them about year round to signal to others their need to recognize their advancement among the intersectionality status scale.

578 In California, it is ILLEGAL to give an IQ test to a black person, due to a lawsuit the state lost several years ago, in which a black mother complained that the test given to her son (which determined him to be mentally retarded) was "racist." The court agreed, and forbade any future IQ testing of black students.

So if we can come up with a consensus about what defines a third world
country, I am very happy and willing to continue this discussion.

649 I was listening to the sports guys on the radio this afternoon. The Golden State Warriors are going to play without an audience on Thursday. The guys made an excellent point. There is no logic to what is happening based ont he numbers. Many many more are put at risk by destroying the economic life of this country. Putting people out of work, destroying businesses, pushing everyone who has a sniffle to run to the hospital to get tested causes far more harm. Many many more people get the flu which is highly contagious and many people die but we don;t close schools, cancel conferences and performances to quarantine people who are sick.
I got multiple notices today from stores, from my congressman, from my office going over all the crazy gyrations everyone's doing to be woke.
What are parents supposed to do when they close down schools? How are artists and musicians supposed to make a living? There seems to be a total disconnect about the financial disaster telling people to not go anywhere and not do anything and patronize anyplace.

Nicely written, directed and acted so far.

Subtle foreshadowing worked into the goings on and dialogue, which you recognize only after the foreshadowed event has happened....so, very nice. That's something I like.

That is what happens when a 500 bed hospital suddenly is overwhelmed with 1500 very, very ill people with pneumonia.

The US system most reminds me of the Thai one - a corrupt, lawless gangster republic where a handful of factions wrangle for control of an increasingly unstable State apparatus, while a more-or-less functional civil service at the lower levels keeps day-to-day life from flying apart at the seams. For the time being, anyway.

But it certainly is not an actual, functioning Republic of the type we used to associate with first-world status.

What are parents supposed to do when they close down schools? How are artists and musicians supposed to make a living? There seems to be a total disconnect about the financial disaster telling people to not go anywhere and not do anything and patronize anyplace.

664 imp: "It's a persistent, adapted (possibly manipulated) virus with long term survivability outside the host, and the ability to be airborne and infectious from breath alone."

It's a virus. Period. It isn't a gas. This boils down to physics and microbiology.

The virus replicates to the point of bursting somatic cells. The virus and its proteins spread along mucosal membranes and cilia to be expelled, by expiration, up the respiratory tract. It's not a gas; it's whole and partial virus in a suspension of mucous. Respiration of significant enough pressure expels droplets with virus into air and it settles like any other dehydrating mass.

That it is ssRNA as source nucleic material makes it relatively weak and highly susceptible to ubiquitous RNAses compared to dsRNA and dsDNA.

You don't need to be an epidemiologist to know this and you don't need to bow to an authority just because an authority said something.

It's not an overt appeal to authority qua authority, it's relying on a specific authority int he field who has studied the particular recent cases of an unknown disease. Hep C can last 4 days, other coronaviruses up to NINE days on surfaces. So your theory is fine, but it's unfounded theoretic speculation at best.

693 The metric prefix system uses power of 1000, like the short scale, so everyone has been encouraged to use the short scale.

The trouble we had with metric prints was that if a mistake was made, it almost always resulted in an error of 10. Misplaced decimal points are scarily common.

The American System of measurement is superior in that any math errors are usually less than an automatic 10. Plus, we put guys on the moon with it.

Jeebus Tapdancing Christ, I don't think the virus is even all that serious for 90% of the population. We might MIGHT have a fatality rate approaching 1.5% overall. MAYBE. It's not hysterical to say that a disease that spreads while the carrier is asyptomatic, that lives on surfaces a long time (we don't know, but it's more than a few hours) and that appears to infect at the slightest proximity is very, very infectious.

I'm not even worried about getting it myself. I have no risk factors, am not bathing in sanitizer, still touching my face, and just taking normal flu-season precautions.

702 rd: "Can you expand on this in short declarative English sentences please?"

Virus nucleic material is either DNA or RNA. It can be long or short in sequence but remains, structurally, like any genomic nucleic acid.

Viruses can store this nuclear material as either single-stranded or double-stranded which is to say one strand alone in sequence or two matching strands bound together but also in sequence.

Of the nucleic acid sequences in nature, single-stranded RNA is the least stable and least thermodynamically stout.

In nature RNAses (proteins) are ubiquitous and attack RNA rapidly and cleave the nucleic acid with vigor. Cleaved RNA is essentially powerless as its coding is pretty much destroyed and any ability to translate is gone. Your fingertips, for example, are loaded with RNAses. RNAses are tough little buggers and have a much longer lifespan on biologic and artificial surfaces.
