  1. Quarantine won't work if wealthy carriers move around as they please. Without exception, all new infections in affected countries were from the wealthy class who flew around the world as they pleased. Even when borders were closed, already purchased tickets on private flights allowed wealthy carriers to continue infecting virgin areas. Notably, all new infections in small towns under lockdown come from wealthy carriers fleeing infected areas. In comparison, you could almost draw an economic line between businesses allowed to stay open and those that aren't. Virtually all low paid workers can't work.
  2. I hear football is literally (not figuratively) life and death for some people in Europe...
  3. I was surprised to see govnerners from the South (where I live) to now or soon enforce stay at home quarantines as strict as California, because those infected in the South now have apparently the grimmest outcomes. High blood pressure and sedentary lifestyles is a good indicator of Coronavirus mortality. I would have guessed the isolated suburban automobile living would have protected the South a lot, but hypertension trumps lifestyle. So it goes In reference to Spain's government not doing a good job...how should it have handled the outbreak? It seems to me locking people indoors and fining outdoor people is pretty strong.
  4. This might not be important because it doesn't talk about severity of the disease. https://www.forbes.com/sites/claryestes/2020/03/20/what-the-relationship-between-blood-type-and-coronavirus-susceptibility-means-for-future-treatments/#95b1671677c8 But why would someone’s blood type make them more susceptible to COVID-19? The answer, Petri explains, has to do with how proteins on the surface of Coronaviruses bind to the different sugars on the surface cells, which go hand in hand with a person’s blood type. “We know some of the Coronaviruses that infect cattle have proteins on their surface that bind to sugars and sugars are what dictate blood group antigens*. If you are blood group A, you have an extra sugar on the surface of your cells called anacitosal glucosamine, which you don't have if you are blood group O.”
  5. I've been cleaning out the garage with soap, simple green, a powerwasher, and a scrub. I am not happy with the amount of mouse poop I have found. It took over four hours to just do 1/3 of the garage. If something is older than six months and hasn't been used, I pitch it with few exceptions.
  6. Is there a correlation between sugar consumption, obesity, and diabetes?
  7. The fourth train is Japan's low sugar consumption (historically extremely low). The Coronavirus's effects are more severe the higher the blood sugar is. Older people usually have high blood sugar...except in cultures that don't use much sugar. Italians love sugar but Japanese do not. Diabetics are severely affected.
  8. It pains me to admit it, but the megachurch's members have exactly the appropriate response. Let me explain; most megachurch members are the working poor although there's quite a few exceptions. Without work (or soon to be out of work), breaking quarantine is a form of civil protest. If you break quarantine, you'll probably suffer fever and a bad cold for a few weeks...but you aren't likely to die, and you'll be immune. Meanwhile, all members infected many others, enough so that a quarantine is useless. And 500 people is huge. Consider this one man who attended several festivals infected over 40,000, and that's just one person! Christians using a biological weapon for a cause, you don't say?! If I was a person with an unstable job, needing to pay mortgage and groceries, and I wanted society to get back to normal, and I knew I had a .5% chance of dying, sure why not? Christianity teaches fortitude under adversity after all. TLDR. 1. Get infected. 2. Spread infection. 3. Everyone's infected. 4. .5% die. 5. Healthy survivors. 6. Back to normal. That's not a bad plan.
  9. This megachurch held its gathering. Their pastor stated they had deployed over a dozen anti-bug machines that zapped viruses at over a 100 mph. "We brought in 13 machines that basically kill every virus in the place," Howard-Browne said. "If they sneeze it shoots it down like at 100 miles per hour and it will neutralize it in a split second." https://www.fox13news.com/news/tampa-megachurch-pastor-arrested-after-leading-packed-services-despite-safer-at-home-orders.amp TAMPA, Fla. - The pastor of a Tampa megachurch is facing charges after refusing to close its doors despite a "safer at home" order in effect in Hillsborough County, meant to stop the spread of COVID-19. The sheriff says up to 500 people were in attendance at Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne's Sunday services.
  10. The inability to count is infectious, unfortunately, and despite the vast amounts of educational funding governments spend.
  11. Speed determines injury severity. People are too concerned about who was right or who cut off who, but those things aren't important because the interaction is psychological. What should be of concern is the damage caused when two people collide, and therefore a collision that causes little injury is more desirable. A driver who rams a pedestrian at 40 mph will almost certainly kill the pedestrian, and yet 45 mph urban speed limits are extremely common.
  12. Older people are taken aback by how gleefully vicious younger people are with Coronavirus killing old people. Such mirth is entirely justified in property tax-free California and rent-controlled NYC, and to a lesser extent in everyone who has looked at their payroll taxes. While everyone loves their grandparents, no such obligation is extended to stranger's grandparents.
  13. I've been thinking of getting this "Boomer Remover" hoodie. https://www.logikalthreads.com/products/covid-19-boomer-remover-hoodie
  14. Since almost everyone has been sent home and most businesses are closed, what projects are you now doing? Personally, I'm rotating between my violin, my piano, my guitar, and my ukulele. I'll do 10-20 minute lessons, switch to the next instrument, and so forth.
  15. While the below examples are of people also unable to count, their country's media and their scientific institutions seem able to count. However, from top to bottom, Chinese seem unable to correctly count. It's bizarre, since the Chinese put so much effort into beating up and jailing reporters and doctors who are counting. I just have no idea why Chinese can't count. They do so well in SAT and other standardized testing.
