Day 273 and still no sign of the Zombies--beginning to think the whole thing was just another Q-anon hoax. Meanwhile, in the real battle against COVID-19, where these weapons are utterly useless—225,000 souls have been lost in the US alone. Moral of the story: wear a damn mask.

Today's numbers from https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html Also good if you haven't seen it yet: https://dangoodspeed.com/covid/state-by-state-new-cases-by-date (the other charts are interesting too -- the red state vs blue state COVID 19 death tracker got a lot of attention but it's just one of the chart options at this site. )

Especially liked Dan's COVID chart; very informative.

This sight is the best! Old people telling me what to do to protect themselves. Stay home if your scared, let us young people work and move on with our lives. A few unhealthy and old people might die just like in real life without Covid. Young people will be screwed for years to come because of lack of work, poverty, depression, suicide, drugs and whatever else will come our way as a result of locking down a capitalist country. This government is gonna help you if you fall off the path. Get out of here with abide the law and let your politicians bend you over and make your decisions for you. Protect your damn selves and quit telling each other how to live. I love that the same government that stole Hawaii and held the queen at gunpoint and forced her to sign over her land and people to this government, is what I need to listen too. This government does not have mine or your best interests at mind. Stop telling people what to do and calling each other names if they have other points of view. I'm gonna do what's best for me and you do what's best for you.

Not sure where it went off the rails between you and @reswright but you found your way in, I assume you can find your way back out? Come back if you change your mind.

Yeah, no, the NEJM says no such thing, unless it did in the spring. You know you can quickly search that database for abstracts, right?

This is a comment on the pic and not the virus: what's that pistolized-carbine above your Glock? But since I'm already heeeere...these comments are painful to read but I am thankful that you take the time to attempt to educate (or at least inform) the tin-tin-foil-hat-wearing members on this site 👍🏼

I just hope Ray buys a shotgun before the zombies pop round. I'm worried that he is being lulled into complacency by jousting with these sullen brownshirts. They're a completely different kind of threat. You can keep those at a distance with a scoped weapon and he def looks to have standoff capability nailed down but those handguns aren't enough for mid to short range defense against a swarm attack. You need buckshot.

My freedom doesn't end for your false sense of safety, if YOU are scared then YOU wear a mask or stay home and let others make their own decision about their health.

Sigh. The party of Lincoln has been become a toddler refusing to wear his raincoat. Don't wear a mask if it makes you feel powerful. Whatever.

No doubt Peterroller369 has discovered some urgent task elsewhere and that's just keeping him from thanking me for linking all the science he said he wanted to read.

Yeah because masks made of hobby lobby fabric Tshirts and kitchen towels are totally effective against microscopic viruses. If anyone thinks there is not a private firm like the Tavistock inst collecting data on this mask shit their head is in the sand. Data like who is wearing masks so they dont infect grandma vs who is wearing masks so they aren't judged by their peers vs who is wearing them only because thats the only way they can conduct business in public. All this data will be used and analyzed to find the most effective way to control the masses. If anyone thinks masks are effective again a virus that is drastically smaller than the pores of a mask then why must i wear one if you are. Shouldn't your mask keep you from inhaling my germs?

"Written from my Android/iOS device, between two Facebook visits, just before using Google Maps to get to the doctor I found on Google" (yeah that's only hypothetical, but I'm sure I'm pretty close).

I was going to point this out. These people who think they're smarter than all the doctors and researchers and literally people who have spent their entire lives learning about infectious disease - it always always boils down to them being ignorant of some basic thing that they didn't even know was a factor, and when that truth emerges, do they go 'oh, maybe I don't really have all this nailed down'? No, they slink off and go somewhere else and just repeat the same damn thing again, because for them this is not a reasoning exercise, it is a social grouping exercise.

In the US, 8.2 million souls have been infected. almost 220,000 lost. Still a big number and yes, wear your damn mask.

You forgot the part where you said "soles" -- I know you meant what you said, but it's still souls.
