  1. In a truly civilized society guns would not be an issue, just like 60 years ago. What changed?
  2. "gun stolen unlocked car" 27 results 8 million with no quotes "criminals buy illegal guns" 162 results, 106 million with no quotes Absolutely, one should never leave a gun in an unlocked car or even in sight. And a poster should research his point before leaving it in a public view!
  3. There's a graph for that, from Cambridge: You are right, about 10-20% will test positive after 10 days! Even at 14 days, 1 out of 100 will test positive. I read about 4 to 10 testing positive during quarantine almost everyday. So even now, 1 will test positive after quarantine every 2 weeks, like the thai lady did. So Anutin's thinking: as a new wave sweeps the world, make sure 20% get in. Lord almighty, a concrete worker, responsible for immunology, for a Thai military government.
  4. Old nonsense. Check out EU hospitalization rates, setting records. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/10/22/world/europe/europe-hospitals-covid.html Check out the now rising deaths in Spain and France. Death follow hospitalizations. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/spain/
  5. It's similar to the earlier post about the mutation 416G, which was more infective and one reason (among others) that COVID-19 spread so easily in the West. 416G was in wave 1. Now there is a new dominant mutation from Spain 20A.EU1 which is quickly replacing older strains. Its too early to know (always is with scientists) if the rapid spread is because of the new mutation, seasonal changes, or travel patterns, etc. The rapid spread and replacement of the older strains hint it may spread more easily. I found a paper that was just released, some graphs and charts.
  6. New coronavirus variant spreading across Europe, scientists warn The Irish Times A coronavirus variant that originated in Spanish farm workers has spread rapidly through much of Europe since the summer, and now accounts for the majority of new Covid-19 cases in several countries. "From the spread of 20A.EU1, it seems clear that the [virus prevention] measures in place were often not sufficient to stop onward transmission of introduced variants this summer,” said Emma Hodcroft, an evolutionary geneticist. [the properties of this new mutation are not yet fully und
  7. Scientific, not political. Europe and the US were hit with a much more infectious strain named 614G. Asian countries were hit earlier with 614D. 614G is up to 10X more infectious but not more severe. This made it much easier for the Asian countries to clamp down and near impossible for the also somewhat less prepared Western counties to stop it. Being more infectious, 614G eventually dominated 98% of all cases as seen in this graph. According to an early Chinese paper, Wuhan, oddly was hit with a more infectious strain right after the clamp down
  8. Thank God climate change will reduce the Santa Ana winds both in intensity and duration. Geophysical Research Letters Volume 46, Issue 5 2019 Dry and gusty Santa Ana winds (SAWs) drive the most catastrophic wildfires in Southern California. Their sensitivity to changing climate has been a matter of uncertainty and debate. We have assessed the response of SAW activity to global warming and describe these results in detail here. The overall decrease in SAW activity robustly projected by downscaled global climate models is strongest in the early and late seasons—fall and
  9. Fun people those CCP folk. In an earlier presentation Wray described how the CCP gave some US resident Chinese two options: "return to China promptly, or commit suicide." https://www.fbi.gov/news/speeches/the-threat-posed-by-the-chinese-government-and-the-chinese-communist-party-to-the-economic-and-national-security-of-the-united-states
  10. They have the instruction manual, which they refuse to release.
  11. Check out EU hospitalization rates and get back to us. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/10/22/world/europe/europe-hospitals-covid.html
  12. Going vertical. France alone is now beyond the entire EU first peak. Belgium, not shown, is off the charts.
  13. What fluid? They only found skin cells, on the sleeve, from at least 4 people. How often do you brush against something? Skin cells are everywhere, you shed 40,000 skin cells per minute, they are a major component of household dust.
  14. Pence to doctors, "Give me whatever you gave him.", pointing to Trump. Trump to Pence "I told you to stop touching stuff."
