This thought exercise seems fun.

So, if you, for whatever reason, had the absolute cure to stop the spread, symptoms, etc of this disease.

What would you do?

Would you sell it for a massive profit to the highest bidder(country) knowing they would leverage it against other countries(furthering mass casualties)?

Would you give it away freely to solve a worldwide pandemic?

Would you throw it away and let the world burn?

Freely and, frankly, anyone who answers otherwise is an effing jackass who deserves to be slapped to the ground.

It's a thought exercise. For me, I'd agree. I'd give it away. As much as Id love a good apocalypse I'd want to see the "enemy" coming. Yes, I'm talking zombies.

Nobody should have to endure this nonsense.

The answer to this virus isn't a cure.

It is having a good immune system in the first place.

Much like cancer, people will succumb to it because of crap eating habits, living in cities with crap water, crap air and crap lives.

It's cultural Darwinism taking place right now.

The "Cure" is is personal responsibility for our own bodies.

Which nobody really does right now.

See you on the other side.

I think they should have to give me a couple cans of Hills Brothers coffee for the cure, after all, it would take weeks of reading research to find the info needed to find the cure.

Obviously, but let stupid people have the chance to flush out their "logic".

I guess I'm out of touch with ATS now, I don't remember everyone taking things so literal.

My how a few months change things. I feel like a outsider who traveled so far only to find his home is gone.

Drink OJ, eat pills and such....

I would cure myself, wife, mistress, bit on the side and the 33 illegitimate children that live in seperate castles from each other. Shhh...
Then burn all the toilet roll ive stockpiled since 2012 in front of all those suffering from diarrhea. Live streaming over facebook, youtube and posting 257, 10 sec tic tok clips on twatter... before finally destroying the cure and every piece of evidence along with it whilst the world watches.

Then unleash the fricken sharks with fricken laser beams for anyone that disagreed!

The best part... id still take all the money, every single penny, promised by those wanting the cure!




Afterwards, id set up a gofundme or patreon, for my new channel with the aim of raising funds to help those affected cause im a real nice guy like everyone else

Patent it. Make it free for one year then start charging. I think that is fair. I should be able to profit from my invention just like everyone else.

So you'd patent it....

But give it away for a year for everyone to produce an inoculate the worldwide populace...and then charge for it(once everyone has been inoculated).......

ya, that sounds lucrative....



Just busting your balls(or eggs....or whatever).

I would share it freely with the world with one exception. Registered Democrats in California would have to pay for it. Celebrities would have to pay for it twice. Illegals would get it for free once they arrive back at the border. Yeah..I said it.

Drinking OJ and taking pills won't help at all right now.

It's too late for that.

Sorry I took your OP literally!

Really a stupid question.


For an interesting option, allow me to recommend the short story by Robert Heinlein, entitled Let There Be Light.

It's a thought exercise...are you not equipped to participate in that?

It obviously has one right answer and outside of the abstract there may actually be a country or countries that face this very possibility.

I miss the good old days, a decade ago, when you were the pinnacle of knowledge on this site. Now you just poo poo a simple multiple choice though exercise by "Stupid question".
