    I guess the Faculty Lounge is the go-to "safe space" where all the beta males go to chill.

    Note to Thought Leader: Since you're out of the basement, can't you toughen your bunch up?

      Certainly don't think I'm the center of the universe. However, since about the third post between us back in April, you've hid in your closet because it's obvious you know you can't win the debate. Literally, every time I've challenged you on a salient point regarding the virus, you have refused to actually answer/address it with any type of logical, substantive, or data supported response. It's always some right-wing, the cure is worse than the disease trope. So trust me, I understand exactly why you didn't/wouldn't respond directly. And, I promise, I haven't lost a wink of sleep over it either.

      What will be interesting is how you respond when the world changes on Nov. 4th. Remember, 60+% of the country identifies themselves as left of center. If they all start to turn out in a consistent fashion, your side won't win a presidential election for a very long time. Like Kepler says, it's only a matter of time before your side dies off...

        And I didn't spend 23 years of my life helping defend this country to let a bunch of right-wing, science denying, Russia loving, misogynist, tiki-torch carrying white nationalist Nazis squander it away....

          It’s very telling how political this virus is to you. You tie it back to politics just about every chance to you get. Even when the post you are replying to doesn’t involve politics.

          And then you try to back yourself as some Science Guru who wants a strict lockdown for 6 weeks.

          Back in reality.

          A binary Yes/No approach to the interpretation RT-PCR unvalidated against viral culture will result in false positives with segregation of large numbers of people who are no longer infectious and hence not a threat to public health.

            So yeah, that's four (4) similar outbreaks in a century. Did you experience the last one? I did.


            It's funny, I used to think the whole "safe spaces" thing to describe sensitive sorts was overdone.

            Emphasis on "used to". But in deference to your sensitivity, no bolding this time.

            You gonna be OK, sunshine??
            Thanks for sharing. Perspective is key and we have lost any form of it.

            Good thread of information about Sweden and neighbors. Context and perspective are key and the themes apply universally. Otherwise you just have hysteria.

            75% of deaths were in nursing homes and elder care. so ask yourself: "how much good could having locked all working age swedes inside possibly done on covid deaths even if lockdown were 100% effective?" pretty much none. certainly not enough to justify the price.

            • Some said it is unfair to compare New York State to Sweden. How about comparing Stockholm City to similarly dense cities in the US? Despite no business lock downs, no closed primary schools, and no masks, Stockholm City has had fewer deaths than similarly dense US cities. How?

                    Since Sturgis is in S.D. I doubt anyone going there showed up in ND.
                    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                      Given how many are asymptomatic I’m sure a lot of people with it traveled there and spread it. Sadly contract tracing here isn’t nearly sophisticated enough but heck that’s why you don’t allow these sizes to congregate

                              I remember someone telling me on this board that they wouldn’t see a huge difference in coronavirus cases distinguished between red and blue states.

                              that’s... a lot of red states at the top of the fastest growing per capita and overall per capita numbers.

                                Not everyone catches the flu on the same day. Not sure why anyone is surprised that different locations eventually see their turn as the “hotspot.” You want to predict where the next one will be? Determine who hasn’t had their turn yet.
