    From the past thread:

    The answer is both. There are some who flat out are saying they take all of it seriously and he should not be the nominee because of it. (and will accept Bernie or Nothing...if you want to get inundated with that stuff follow John Cusack on Twitter you will see the stuff Fade and I often talk about) Others not so much. All of them are grifters spreading the message of revolution above all else. If division and a repeat of 2016 are the virus, they arent fighting it they are basically acting like Governor DeSantis.

    I know you're smarter than that, so that's why I'm curious what you're getting at.
    I wasnt getting at anything except to show what the numbers would be if, in a hypothetical situation, everyone in the country became infected. All I was doing was extrapolating the numbers out to show what we are talking about if this thing spirals out of control. (and obviously not taking into account any other factors because we cant know most of them until after we are done with this)

    So basically I am not proving anything, just throwing out some numbers based on what we currently know and expanding it to the population at large. It is a worst case scenario. Not scientific or meant to do anything but kinda put in context the numbers we have so far.

    you can't really use the % testing positive now to extrapolate the total population that eventually becomes infected. Some of those testing negative now can and will become infected later.

    If it's a celebrity that's one thing. Anybody who takes a celebrity seriously on matters of public policy is begging for Darwin for breakfast.

    When you cited "public figures" and "media" I was thinking it was reporters, analysts, or staffers. That would be 1000x worse since those people ought to know better and are serving something larger than their own Q score.

    I saw a statistic that a new virus' first wave burns out when 80% of the population has been exposed. I'm assuming:

    80% exposed
    20% of exposed infected
    02% of infected dead

    For the world:
    9 billion population
    7.2 billion exposed
    1.4 billion infected
    29 million dead

    For the US:
    330 million population
    264 million exposed
    53 million infected
    1.1 million dead

    For comparison, the CDC estimated 38-54M flu illnesses this season, so down to the level of infection the numbers check. The trick is to keep the number of deaths closer to what it is for the flu (60,000) than it would be if we had absolutely no immunity or vaccine (a brand new virus).

    I went to the DMV to renew my drivers license. They had orange pylons set up six feet apart in the lobby (of course they did.) I was worried they were going to make me take a driving test.

    I get that, I'm saying I actually have sympathy with people who queue up and forget. Unconscious behaviors are unconscious. When I see the tape it's a reminder I'm grateful for. It's also a message to the Republican behind me not to invade my space regardless of whether he believes that God sent the virus to punish them homos so it won't hurt a Christian. Anything that means I don't have to interact with him is a godsend, so to speak.

    The only thing I know about CH2M Hill is they’re the ones who bought out Veco Alaska, the company responsible for a huge bribery scandal a decade or so ago.

    1/3 of what, 2%? That's still close to an order of magnitude worse than influenza.

    Also, all of this downplaying of this virus and comparing it to common influenza- I've been around for over 50 years now, and I can't recall anytime in my life time that the common influenza ever overwhelmed multiple hospital systems all over the world at the same time.

    So can we stop with that stupid comparison and just get on with what we have here?
