  • That's true. Geopolitics never strays far from this kind of thing and WHO is partially in the pocket of China, in my opinion. https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/02/china-coronavirus-who-health-soft- ...
  • Something to REALLY play in the imaginings of the doom-sayers.  The 1918 flu actually likely began in 1915 as a weaker strain.  The virus came in three waves and the third wave which hit in 1918 ...
  • How do they determine what the base really is? I remember when they brought in a artificial 100 ISO (when most cameras were 200 native) and it wasn't much of an improvement if at all image-wise ...
  • But WHY are they clogged, when 800,000 people in the space of 3 months were hospitalized with regular flu?  How did they accommodate them?  That actually HAPPENED and wasn't some fanciful ...
  • That's a bet.  What is it worth to you to pin your hopes on the idea that 2 MILLION New Yorkers will become infected, or will you back-track when it doesn't happen and claim "isolation stopped it?"
  • During the Black Plague, certain cities in Western Europe went unscathed.  No one really knows why so trying to be 100% accurate in saying what will work and how it will work is a waste of time.  ...
  • You know what's going to happen? It won't result in anywhere near that many deaths and you know the doomsayers will say at that point? "See, we told you the lock-down would work!!" But someone ...
  • It's the economic version of the war in Vietnam.  Started with (mostly) good ideals, and ended up a morass.   And just like  that war, we will feel the negative economics effects of years, or decades.
  • 3:2 ratio is a stupid waste.  4:3 is better.
  • Anecdotes and aberrations are the media's and politician's weapon-of-choice.
  • I think the thing to remember are the numbers. We've basically destroyed the economy and will make most people's lives miserable for a few years over a disease that has killed few people, ...
  • Too many.  Technology will take care of it.  If all cars could "sense" drunk drivers and shut-down, it would cut auto deaths by 1/3.   BTW, how long would you be willing to stay in your house?  ...
  • Sure it is.  Organ transplants. Mutations prevent outright cures.  Flu vaccines are about 50% effective.  In 2018, 40M got flu, 800,000 went to hospital in the U.S., 61,000 died.  NO LOCKDOWN!!
  • If there is a real base iso below 100 that is.  I'd be all for that.
  • You can minimize accidents, but never eliminate  them with current auto technology.  So, again, we sacrifice lives for personal freedom.  And we all agree it's a good thing.
  • We've killed MILLIONS in wars for less gain per person than that.  WW2.   The Germans never threatened the U.S. mainland and the Japanese could never have defeated the U.S. but it didn't stop the ...
  • Also, even though radiation doses are somewhat cumulative, regeneration and healing of impacted tissue takes place over time so some of the build-up is mitigated by that.  The studies done in ...
  • And even more people don't understand how epidemics actually work and why "exponential growth" just does not keep going.  Meanwhile, the people who get paid to weed out the truth, reporters, are ...
  • That's the irony.  We'll go and kill people in some far-flung place to preserve our "liberty" but when it comes to things that really negatively impact our lives and freedoms, we often do nothing ...
  • Black and white may be antiquated in a way. B&W's height of popularity probably occurred in the late 80's, early 90's when Ansel Adams works sold $1 billion in books, prints and calendars.
