Coronavirus | COVID-19 | Global Pandemic | PLEASE KEEP DISCUSSION TO THIS THREAD

Recommended Posts

Not quite defending CNN here but there's nobody on CNN who feeds more lies/propaganda and bullshit to the masses than Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity.  Watching even a couple minutes of those programs will have me wishing I lived anywhere else.

Sometime earlier this year, deep in the Staff Room of Box Office Theory:

 

"For heavens sake, can we have anything... ANYTHING else to talk about on this board besides all those interminable Fanboy War posts that are infesting every single THREAD!!!"

Mood-wise that's quite a good shout. People trying really hard to hang onto normalcy but knowing it's not normal.

To me, Joker by far, the perfect metaphor of what the western man has become.

No wonder a bro, son of a boomer made the film.

The movie of the poor little eternal victim that refused to become an adult that blames his problems on the bad society, here evil society is covid.

Politicians in the west are not adults anymore.

It s not their fault you see.

They don't really understand the sense of the words responsibility.

And sacrifice.

And duty.

 

The Joker is like most of our politicians facing this crisis right now, afraid little children incapable of taking adult, harsh decisions.

These politicians don't lead, they react, which is the worse thing.

Governence is being able to foresee.

Not so long ago, Dads used to teach their sons life is pain and misery and responsibility and civility.

Those were the days ...

 

If the situation really goes south, I wouldn't be surprised to see some members of some governments leaders fleeing their countries in choppas ...

During the yellow vest riots last year in France, one week-end, things got so bad Macron had an helicopter ready to exfiltrate him from the Elysée ( where the french president lives) : true story.

Watching Macron's speeches right now betray him, you see the fear in his eyes.

He was never raised or prepared to lead a war.

Bad luck.

He forgot a saying as old as time itself

 

History is tragic.

Always.

Even when you have I-Phones and modern medicine.

 

Sooner or later, you will have to deal with utmost tragic events.

 

The Joker wouldn't have lasted an hour in a trench during World War I at Verdun.

Me neither if I am being honest.

The Joker just needed some ass and risperdal. 

 

He didn't need to fight in WW1. The boys who fought that war wished they could watch Deadpool and play PS4 instead of breathing mustard gas to pass some arbitrary manhood test.

CNN is garbage if you watch the Canadian or british TV channels.

 

Fox.news is then like watching north korean news in comparison.

Ummm...108/10000 = .0108 which translates as a percent to 1.08%...

The mortality rate will be less than 1% when we take into account all the infected people who haven't been tested or show no symptoms. If 80% have such mild symptoms it's likely most haven't been to get tested. Those 10,000 cases is realistically well over 50000 so that mortality rate is actually going to be very low

Just got tested...they used what was once a huge gallery. It was all very organized and everyone was helpful. But it honestly seemed like something out of the movies. All chairs were at least a meter apart from each other...kind of reminded me of when we used to take standardized tests in high school.

 

But damn, they put a swab in my nose and I think they tried to stick it so far up they wanted to get to my brain. 

 

It's been 12 days since I returned from the UK...no symptoms and I doubt I have it because if I did, my parents would be showing symptoms, too. Hope all goes well!

Testing in NSW only results in 1% confirmed case rate. Seems very low.

But, conversely, we are very early in the outbreak, and it will take 2 weeks for the exploding newly infected to get to a point where they recover...or don't...so it's also early there...

 

PS - See SK, which has now hit the 1% death rate...and is unfortunately, also seeing an uptick again in new cases...the old religious cult cases are just starting to resolve now...

Its close to home now, a friend of mine has the virus after being tested. He's happy as he gets to play Warzone for 2 weeks. Ive actually seen a number of people wishing for the virus just to enjoy the 2 weeks home from work  

 

Unfortunately even if i got ill i'd still have to force myself to work

In France, my workplace has put us on forced paid leave. I keep going out despite the lockdown (printed 3 authorizations yesterday alone : groceries, running x 2) and nothing has happened. I don't see why the government should be allowed to prevent me from going where I please. I want to remind people that there are probably 10 times as many cases in the wild compared to the official numbers, so the morality rate is probably around 0,3%.  It's ridiculous how people are willing to accept totalitarian-like measures just because of fear and media propaganda. 

 

I must say I do enjoy the empty streets.
