Always going with your gut instead of math, and getting it wrong.
The liberal hypocrites are not going to stop complaining and lying and doing dumb shit.My older brother is a nurse practitioner in the NYC metro area, and he is in a high risk group.1. Almost 70 2. Asthma 3. Overweight I just suggested he ask for vacation or unpaid leave, and he said he would be terminated.He is not sewing people up, so he can be away from work and people won’t die.He actually values his cash flow more than his own health or life. I’m sorry for him almost.He’s got plenty of money, he just wants to not be out of work for even a month.His bosses obviously care more about foreign people and bums than about him.My self preservation instinct is stronger, I would probably take a leave, get fired, and look for another job later.
Paranoid?! No way... if this pandemic occurred in sept or October I would be damn accurate! You really think people would go to the voting booths in large numbers if Election Day were tomorrow?
WookieMan saysWhat math....??? Are you being sarcastic? We have estimates from "experts" that range from 20k to 2M death in the US, not the world.... How in the flying fuck are they experts or that is math? Clearly the point flew over the head.80k to 2M in US. Those are using exactly the same math, only different suppression. That's a factor in the math. What's so difficult to understand?

You know what the next thing will be, right? Trump didn't do enough for the mental health sector when it comes out that 10's of thousands of people above the average killed themselves because of lost jobs and businesses. It's almost like there's a script for this...

There's a difference between saying models are just guesswork, and concluding they have no value.
Confused Fake News out of step with each other on the Narrative Push.
I might be wrong, but R0 has dropped to about 1.5 a few days ago. We also need to distinguish those who die with Coronavirus will inflate the CFR as opposed to those that died from Coronavirus, which will deflate the CFR.This: https://www.epicentro.iss.it/coronavirus/bollettino/Report-COVID-2019_17_marzo-v2.pdf is in Italian but what they say is that out of 300 dead with corona, only 3 did not have major health issues prior to catching corona (Tabella 1)
NoCoupForYou says* Confused Fake News out of step with each other on the Narrative Push.One is Mar 6 and the other March 30. The fake news is whoever made this side-by-side.

Saying "major health issues" is a stretch. The main co-morbidities are hypertension, diabetes, obesity, ... very common conditions.
All the attention seeking antifa/sjw/tranny/alphabet pronoun people have suddenly lost their voice now that shit actually hit the fan. It's nice not to hear their daily bullshit and protests now that they are stuck at home with mommy and daddy. I was talking about the virus with some friends the other day and a black lady in our group turned this convo into an anti Trump, pro Obama, racists conversation. Since shit has actually hit the fan, I told her to shut the fuck up as it had nothing to do with Obama or race. She immediately shut her mouth as she realized all that racists bullshit they've been preaching the last 3 years has no room in our society anymore.
Around 2/3 of 60+ have hypertension, and 1/3 of other adults have hypertension, and they're not all about to keel any day now.
ThreeBays saysAround 2/3 of 60+ have hypertension, and 1/3 of other adults have hypertension, and they're not all about to keel any day now.Actually, yes they are at deaths door. You're exponentially more likely to die at 60+ from anything versus the rest of the population. Influenza or some other non-CV-19 pneumonia could kill them just as easy. Even a minor cancer diagnosis could knock them out in 30 days.I know life expectancy in the US is something in the 70's. The only reason it's that high is because babies and kids rarely die anymore at young ages. Getting to 60 alone is an accomplishment. Why do you think the social security age is where it is?? There's a reason.
managed by pills (often creating other problems) vs naturally (losing weight, exercising). It's a billion dollar industry to manage these conditions rather than treating the root causes and making behavioral changes.It is a billion dollar industry taking advantage of laziness. Every already knows the advantages of exercise. I remember long ago when I was in San Francisco, I saw that some guys were getting "pec implants." Why not just get in the habit of daily pushups or using the pec machine at the gym to build real muscle?
even many Ads for female clothing now feature a fat chick amongst average lookin plain janes
I often don't feel like exercising, but pushing yourself through the initial resistance is not that hard and afterwards you're always happier than before.Yes, nothing like the feeling right after the shower after a workout, especially cardio. Good habit to get into.
mell sayseven many Ads for female clothing now feature a fat chick amongst average lookin plain janesThere's an ad for a bra that makes the point that in 1977 three women sewed two jock straps together to make the first sports bra. 1977--what a horrendous year! That's when they had the famous National Women's Conference--don't you know the commies flocked to that one and I'm sure Bella Abzug and Gloria Steinam took center stage.
- All the silly BS social stuff is cancelled... kids birthdays, silly holidays, etc.. you know, the stuff you are obligated to go to but go reluctantly lol. I fucking love that part LOL

I just love it how one can at the same time have the attitude to downplay the rucking disease that every advanced democracy on the planet has shut down their economy to stop. AND at the same time speak with hyperbole about people who can manage hypertension for 30 or 40 years, as being at deaths door.
Managing hypertension for 30-40 years?
WookieMan saysManaging hypertension for 30-40 years?My mother didn't develop, or at least didn't discover, her hypertension until she was in her mid 70's in the mid 70's. She took three medications, but they would lower it so much she didn't have any energy, so she'd get off of them, the worst thing you can do because then it can skyrocket. Nevertheless, she was 94 when she died of a heart attack at home in '97.

The ankle check was of course after listening, ekg, etc, etc.
