Welp, I'm about to go out and hit the grocery store. This will be my 2nd time doing major grocery shopping. The wife's shopping list is hilarious (because the first time didn't go so well).

Directions like: olives - from such and such and aisle, next to the pickles.

Because I'm a dumbass who just grabs the first thing that says olives and calls it good.

Wish me luck.

35 Reminds me of The Barbarian Invasions, an early 00s Canadian drama about an older man dying in the hospital and his son who navigated around the red tape of the system to help his father.

Well, not the movie itself, but some of the reaction. There were some leftists who were pissed at the film because it showed the Canadian hospital as overcrowded with patients lining the hallways.

As a reminder, Presidents don't generally want to behave as if the right of a free press to have access to him is being infringed.

Second reminder, the guy was just impeached over a big fat nothing. They WILL impeach him again if he starts tossing out the press, and one might say they might actually have a case if he does.

Third reminder, take care of your mental health. It's crucial to your overall health. If... IF you let this thing get to you, your body will start to break down in ways that will make you more susceptible to things like wuwu virus.

As I got older, I was shocked, SHOCKED!, to realize that that Midway footage, or whatever, could not have been Midway footage, or whatever, because those planes were not available in 1942, or whenever.

Fake news, it's got a pedigree. Incidentally, if I remember right, Walter Cronkite hosted The Twentieth Century. Shoulda been my first clue.

OK, is it possibly criminal? I think if we show the MSM has embarked on a campaign to help in the coup, and at the same time produce China propaganda (a racketeering effort, funded by China at many levels) ... then we have Criminal, they are not "news", they are agents of China, and they have not registered as such


(gee, didn't our FBI/AG under Obama, attack Flynn/Manafort/Stone ... others under that very charge? ... while ignoring others (Podesta) that are doing the same?


If we get more O'Keefe style confessions, of deliberate deception by media outlets to harm Trump, via lies and this style deception, I think there are surely conspiracy charges to be brought, if not outright espionage. (or whatever the opposite of stealing info is ... I mean, deliberately building FakeChinaNews .... dangerous and deadly propaganda even as China kills us in the grey zones.

content) showing the ACTAUL CDC stats which reveal - -that this years
there are fewer deaths overall and fewer deaths from pneumonia than any
random normal year - -FAR fewer, in fact:


There was some interesting related discussion on Twitter. A lot of people are reporting having had a worse-than-usual flu in early January this year (I had it, and it was all over my work). I think Corona really did go through the country a lot earlier than people think, and for most people it wasn't really a thing.

223 What's really great for the media is this is normal stats so altho they can and have gotten the virus the odds are against it thus they are at little risk no matter where or who they talk to.

224 Imma repost this I wrote in JJ's thread. We need to get over this "Fauci is just trying to screw Trump mindset."

267 Let's look at the numbers on Fauci's 100-200k deaths statement. Before that, let's also note that he had lots of caveats with that, like saying "Don't hold me to this."

At a 1-2% fatality rate, that means ~10M-20M cases.

That seems unlikely given we are at 142k cases and 2500 deaths.

BUT.

Looking at the graphs on worldometer.info, you can look at growth on a logarithmic scale.

US grew from 100 cases to 1000 in 8 days. 1000 to 10000 in 8 days. 10000 to 100000 in 9 days.

10x growth in 8-9 days. If that growth rate continues - as it has for 3 cycles for just 2 more cycles - then we are at 10M cases by April 15.

The death graph is similar - we went from 100 deaths to 1000 in 8 days - if it continues, then 100k deaths by April 15.

Note the caveat there - if growth continues at the same rate.

And that is why the President extended the guidelines to the end of April.

Now some good news - it looks like over the past 2 days the growth curve is bending on total cases and deaths. We will have a better handle on it this week.

226 I have a feeling a lot of 83 year olds who are sick and close to death will suddenly catch BeerVirus in order to spike the numbers. I mean is anyone ever going to check that everyone who is said to have BeerVirus actually had it? No. They just take the word of hospitals as gospel. Also whats to stop deep blue states from adding an extra zero to the days totals? There will never be any audit of this bullshit. The numbers mean nothing. Fake news all the way around.

Relatively early on, in the HIV epidemic (or whatever), there were lots of breathless reports, coming for orgs like CDC and WHO.

One of the alarms that went off was the number of hetero cases coming out of big cities like New York and San Franny.

Well, a researcher went to New York, tracked all the supposed hetero cases, and asked follow up questions. About 2/3 of the cases subsequently admitted to having gay sex and/or needle sharing.

And if I recall, the researchers made it clear they didn't necessarily believe they were being told the truth by the 1/3 who didn't recant.

Point being, the numbers we get, all of them, are subject to ALL SORTS of distortion, not least of which is over-inflating numbers to make things look whatever way the gatekeepers in those orgs consider to be in their own best interests.

Root cause: identical.

Trump was a threat to them because he's a nationalist. He is not a small-government guy or a small-government-spending guy (my biggest complaints about him), but he is big on the nation-state concept and the free-market concept. He is also good at delivering his message.

They have had little luck attacking Trump but they have capitalized BIGLY on this opportunity to attack what it is they actually hate. Trump is just a major, effective symbol of the thing and not the thing itself. They now have the opportunity to go after the thing itself and they are pursuing that avenue now.

293 on the death rate thingy ... in the US it slowed a little 2 days ago, then half as many yesterday as the day before. I was rejoicing, with caution (just one day) but hope that this was the HCQ effect showing up (it works quickly)

The worldometers.info numbers reset at midnight (+0) GMT ..so they reset at 7PMcentral time yesterday ... so we are almost 17 hours innto today, and USA shows only 33 deaths. This is fantastic news ...


Sure it could be a blip for some other reasons ... but I think it could also be the end, my friend, so let's keep dancing. to a better song. fingers crosses, prayers said, virgins sacrificed ... if it continues, only reason I foresee is the NCQ approval and usage ... but that is my view looking through all the smoke and haze of fake news

I'm not worried about this virus. Either I catch it or I don't - and either live or die. But I am concerned about the reaction to it - and the absolute delight some are taking in not only doing exactly as their told, but making sure you and me know how important it is to do exactly as we're told as well.

I doubt it. It would have been too hard to pull off. I think this is a case of the Press doing what they *always* do and completely losing control.

They hate Trump. They love Trump's enemies and China (since China pays their bills). They have the volume knob on their hate-spewing machines superglued into the "11" position, as it has been for years.

This time, though, it worked and they promptly lost control. Contagion is scary as hell, in a way that "Muh Russia" or "Muh Ukraine" or "Muh Immigration" just aren't. They were at a fever-pitch anyway and glommed on to this just like they do everything.

Between that, and the YUGE Chinese response to this in January, they created a panic loop and then they promptly lost control of it. Now, I do think they're capitalizing on it bigly, but they didn't plan it. No one probably could have planned it. They just did what they always do.

They have been playing with matches for years, and they finally managed to set the place on fire.

4) They didn't know what was going on, and reacted the way they are used to reacting - through violent crackdown.

I suspect it was primarily a knowledge problem. They remember SARS 1.0, what it did, how they allowed it to come into being, and the reaction to them in the world for suppressing it and allowing it to spread. When faced with SARS 2.0, they ran the same playbook (suppress knowledge and destroy those who went off-book) but then when it became apparent that word was getting out, they pivoted and did *everything* they could get away with to try to avoid a humiliating repeat of 2002-2003.

474 Looking at the data ( scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for graphs ) the death rate appears to be about 1.5% of the people sick enough to know they need to be tested. This obviously does not include those who are asymptomatic, and don't even know they have the disease.

3. constantly cover for what the Chinese are doing
4. slow-walk anything that Trump and the loyalists in his Cabinet try to accomplish (RESIST!!!1)

Part of the argument against panic is that the virus is far MORE infectious that previously thought.

If it's much more infectious, then it's infecting a larger part of the population, but only a small sliver of people are actually showing symptoms, especially symptoms bad enough for hospitalization.

On top of that, we now have this brain dead nincompoop, who is less capable of sentient thought than any candidate since Mel Carnahan died in a plane crash.

And this whole thing.. this virus time, I guarantee there are campaign handlers who have no freakin' clue how to manage a campaign in this setting. None of the prior strategies are applicable.

I'm of the opposite mind: there isn't enough shared misery. People always seem willing to make others sacrifice; hence closing bars, restaurants, various other businesses. It's for the greater good! If there was a near universal shut down and stop-work order and virtually everyone had to figure out how to pay their creditors with no income, this shot would be over a.s.a.p. Skin in the game is the key to limiting draconian measures. A majority is always willing to vote for someone else's ox to be gored.

To really enjoy, you need at a minimum a force-feedback wheel, pedals, and a good sized monitor. The trick to make everything feel right is Field of View. You want to trick your brain into seeing things at "real size" by setting the game scale to match the monitor size and distance from your face - so everything looks "right".

Here's the good news - you can do that with a $250 set of new pedals on sale, just about any good sized monitor, and a desk. The demands on the PC are not that intense - this isn't a graphics driven game. I used to run it on a laptop before I built a rig.

Speaking of Jeremy Diamond, she described the team dynamic as journalists vs. Trump: "I have to say thank you to Jeremy of CNN for giving me the opportunity to ask my second question. We know now that covering President Trump sometimes is like a team sport. We have to have each other's back in the press corps and Jeremy had my back today."

No, you're supposed to report the news - not be a cartel that plays for one side against the others. Fuck off, shut up, fuck off again, quit your taxpayer-funded job, continue fucking off and then fuck off for the remainder of your life.

589 Don't worry, relatives aren't allowed into nursing homes anymore. You can trust the staff is doing everything within their power to make sure your elderly relatives are being taken care of. Such as cleaning their room in the same manner a child might for their elder mother, washing your dad's favorite coffee cup, making sure they have plenty of kleenex.

603 The virus, it goes in your lungs. Your lungs go to work making more virus. Your lungs get sick.
Japanese data points to massively higher infection rates when indoors. The virus is concentrated in restricted air spaces.
First proof. Church choir with no symptomatic persons gather to sing in Washington State in EARLY MARCH. Now all are infected after deeply inhaling and exhaling while in close proximity.
Assignment: Do a similar analysis of populations trapped in a carbon fibre tube for an hour all breathing the same air. (100 points)
Bonus: Come up with a method to prevent cross contamination in the following scenario. You are on a light rail train in a car populated by 35 people. Everyone is breathing. Killing everyone is not viable. (25 points)

The problem is that the data isn't random. There's a major bias because almost all of it from the US is people who are self-reporting and showing up at a hospital with symptoms.

It wouldn't be the hardest thing in the world to create a random sample. You'd need something like 1,000 tests and a way to generate a random set of people to test from. And then you track their progress for a month or so.

They are not because the residents all get flu shots and live in (for the most part) hygienic situations with very few outside visitors.

A lot of nursing homes require DNR/AND (Do not resuscitate/Allow natural death) for residency so it matters not how they expire.
