Well, I'm very disappointed.

Your stats don't seem to include how many "Hold my beer" deaths happen everyday.

That should concern everyone.


What scares the crap out of me is just two words...

Watch this!

My wife is prepping and it is funny as I have prepped and she has complained about it thinking it is silly. My prep is for something like massive electrical grid failure...lol I told her even if we got it, we are healthy and so it would just come and go like a flu at best.

Those are worldwide numbers. If you'd ever had a Taco surprise from a burrito street cart in Juarez, you'd never question the physical devastation of passing your entire lower GI tract out of your body in a single sitting.

30 Seconds in - The Best Cure for those who quiver in fear over minor threats, like CoronaFlu. (Or Trump being US President)



I really do not understand how you guys are still down-playing the coronavirus problem. A 20% hospitalization rate for 3-6 weeks is going to be a big problem. 5% of cases requiring weeks on a mechanical ventilator is going to be a big problem. Supply chain issues and drug shortages are going to be a big problem. Schools suspending classes for weeks or longer if this gets worse is going to be a big problem.

www.who.int...




13.8% have severe disease (dyspnea, respiratory
frequency ≥30/minute, blood oxygen saturation ≤93%, PaO2/FiO2 ratio 50% of the lung field within 24-48 hours) and 6.1% are critical (respiratory
failure, septic shock, and/or multiple organ dysfunction/failure).

Mortality increases with age, with the highest mortality among people over 80 years of age
(CFR 21.9%). The CFR is higher among males compared to females (4.7% vs. 2.8%). By
occupation, patients who reported being retirees had the highest CFR at 8.9%. While
patients who reported no comorbid conditions had a CFR of 1.4%, patients with comorbid
conditions had much higher rates: 13.2% for those with cardiovascular disease, 9.2% for
diabetes, 8.4% for hypertension, 8.0% for chronic respiratory disease, and 7.6% for cancer.

Not really.

There are a number of illnesses that will allow you to, quite literally, poo yourself to death as one becomes more and more dehydrated.

Not a pleasant way to go.

I find it hard to believe that more people die every day from diarrhea than car accidents, but then again this is America.

KFC is a genocidal monster.


I've come pretty close a few times. Therr's diarrhea, and then there's effin diarrhea.

The last time I had it was when I spent a minute trekkin through Mexico. I think I had a little too much ceviche. But I was bed-ridden for almost two weeks crapping my brains out every five to ten minutes. The whole time I was holed up in a tiny village with no medical care. I survived off of Coca-Cola, tortillas, and rice. I had headaches and body aches and joint aches so bad I couldn't sleep. It really sucked.

Granted it wasn't in the US, but diarrhea can really kill ya. I was so dehydrated that I could pinch my skin and it would stay pinched up. I looked like a skeleton, my tongue felt like a dry wad of cotton. My gums were drawn up. It literllay looked like I had died and shrivelled up. It took over a month for me to start feeling better and looking better.

Worst I ever had was in the US... from a high dollar sushi joint in Bellevue, across Lake Washington from the notorious urban Hell, Seattle. Ironically, it wasn't the sushi but rather a bad order of spring rolls. You ever eaten something and known a horrible mistake had been made within 5 minutes of eating it? The 3 block walk back to my office was horrible, how I didnt ruin my pants can only be viewed as a testimonial to the power of prayer and faith. Spent the entire afternoon in the toilet at work... then an extremely difficult Sound Transit trip to the park and ride where my Jeep was. A half hour drive from there to my townhouse.

Didnt eat for nearly a week after that. Was in bed with the shivering fever for 2 whole days living off of nothing but Gatoraide and imodium AD.

Conservatives. Now is the time to show those balls, let them swing proudly, instilling fear and feelings of insecurity in male liberals while forcing their women to hear the feminine lamentations of their own men while swooning over our right swinging grapefruit-sized metaphorical gonads.



Chiming in from across the pond here....

I've been too busy with the clusterfuq that is Brexit to pay much heed to US political affairs these past few months (assisting in the effort for Scottish Independence doesn't leave as much time for online debate as I once enjoyed and I'm more focussed on local issues). I'm still interested and still read when I find time.

This chestbeating bravado is something I've only seen with the rise of the Right and the installing of unlikely world leaders, who were openly mocked for years before Premiership (i.e. Trump and BawJaws).

A: Do you really believe that voting for Trump in any way increases your virility or manhood? Or even makes you a bigger man?

B: Have you been checked for metaphorical Gonad Cancer?

It saddens me that this attitude is creeping into British Culture and can be seen on these very pages. It's really not a good thing, politics used to be something of a gentleman's game (as a working class shcmo with an interest in debating it was never something I felt I could be involved in, until 2014 and I really became politically aware and then last year was the final straw, I became politically active), that gentleman's attitude seems to have gone out the window and politics is now discussed with spite and venom, and it should not be that way. It's understandable things will get het up but there's no need to slam everyone who voted against the Conservative movement as a traitor or to lower yourself to name calling, it serves no purpose but to reveal your own ineptitudes.

There are a lot of problems with the administration in the US and the UK and half the population of each Nation are blinded by a cult-like herd mentality that blinkers them to the problems of their chosen party. All too often they project this attitude onto others, assuming that the people who voted the other way did so with the same blind devoting and faith.

Too many people have sleepwalked us into this situation where the "oddball" Premieres and their cronies, all of whom are being well catered for in the new laws and legislations, are actually the very Elites that they voted these clowns in to protect.

And before you start slinging mud at me, just remember the US and UK Left are very different, I'm a proud Lefty but in US terms it seems my politics are pretty Centrist...

Every day my friend. I used to have an iron stomach, but now I've got some kind of serious dairy/lactose intolerance that will send me to the pot in no time. I still eat it though

One thing I don't mind though is that my stomach will immediately tell me I screwed up if I eat something not good for me. There's no guesswork about what or where I ate. If my stomach isn't churning in five to ten minutes after the first bite then it's all good. If it does I never eat the place again.

If you strangle stats you can get an outcome of doom or "not going to effect me".
If the outbreak is really from one focal point... then it is something to consider. If all countries built a wall, all those countries will still have flu cases and everything else mentioned but not this COVID 19

Nice but "wheres the beef" as in the who, what and why?

So the Chinese pull a 24 / 7 Chinese Fire drill and quarantine millions in lock downs never seen before in recent history. Nice but your numbers support the Chinese NOT doing anything about Coronavirus. However, that they did do something supports that something dire has occurred for some other reason. Thus the entire rational behind your argument has been offset by the Chinese. Actually your thread and facts actually supports that a conspiracy exists in this Coronavirus "thingy". What the Chinese and the WHO did is simply irrational and your figures support same.

Chinese aren't an irrational race like Americans. They are pragmatic about life. Just look at the sheet they eat. Gross.

[1] That being said have you considered a potential move by the fun bunch over at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and their push for Universal Vaccine Digital ID2020? They also have a joint venture with a biological laboratory over in Wuhan. They also own a patent on Coronavirus which on face value was developed for Chickens on the assumption that chickens become infected with Coronavirus en masse, "they" will have the solution.

I never knew Bill Gates had a thing for Chickens in China. Strange

[2] Bill Gates has delivered several speeches in public in which he mentions that vaccines can be used for population control. I heard him say so in three separate speeches in different years. So why is he saying that along with why such an interest in vaccines? I do know that he has said that there are too many people here on earth.

[3] In July 2019 several Chinese doctors and scientists were removed and expelled from a Canadian government National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg, Canada's only Level 4 lab that owned the Coronavirus that they bought from the Dutch. The Dutch acquired it from a dead Arab who died of Coronavirus back in the 2000's. To date there has been NO followup by the MSM. Strange.

Chinese researcher escorted from infectious disease lab amid RCMP investigation

[4] So where are the above doctors and scientists. They simply have disappeared off the face of the earth. Did they steal the Coronavirus strain that kills humans and head on over the to Bill and Melinda Gates Ranch in China?

So in this Coronavirus "event" are we simply acting as the Pied Piper of Hamelin with many minions to seduce whilst the real action is ongoing in the shadows?

So we need to take a look in the mirror and ask that question and see if the mirror talks back.

We have sir, an inconvenient truth out there. We just haven't found it yet.

politics is the same distraction as the virus

they just needed another distraction to keep you from losing faith in the primary distraction

yes but you are 100% right ,there are far more dangerous things affecting us daily than corona virus

Got to disagree with you here mate....anything leftist leaning is deeply frowned upon and in the good ol' US of A you would be stereotyped as a god damn pinko commie bastard.

Boris Johnson would be regarded as 'Centrist' in the States.

Is there really any wonder as to why americans dislike anything left leaning, when the USA spent nearly 50 years in a propaganda and cold war with the soviet union.

so I have to ask , how much of the USA's propaganda machine had an affect on how americans view left leaning politics and ideology .

If America hadnt had a cold war with russia, would America be a socialist workers republic today ?

True.
So many of them are intelligent and caring human beings....but just one whiff of what they deem to be leftist and they seem to lose all sense of reasoning and have such a locked in perspective.

I think its one of the best examples of how effective drip feeding biased viewpoints through MSM and government backed propaganda outlets can be.
The anti socialist/communist/leftist mind set seems so entrenched in such a large cross section of US society.

I'm not too sure about that but if you look at how popular FDR was and some of his policies prior to WWII it does suggest that the US might have been a little less Conservative.

I think its also worth noting that there is a long tradition of Libertarianism in the USA and I very much doubt anything would ever have changed that.
