    Yes but left unchecked this thing could get out of control in a hurry, totally inundating our healthcare system and racking up 2.5 million bodies in its wake.

    So I watched it.
    At first I was surprised and shocked at what I was watching.
    Then what I was watching started giving me ideas.
    That surprised and shocked me.
    So I put down the bowl.

    I'm still in skeptic mode. These deadly projections serve to flatten the curve and that's good in its own way.

    Not drinking the media Kool-Aid otherwise. Fucking liars, the lot. They want us plugged into their data needle exactly like a pusher wants you to buy his stepped on junk. Nope. Not this Irish nimrod.

    Written by Hoyt Axton, whose Mama wrote Heartbreak Hotel. Good bloodlines there.

    You mean like how they said masks originally had little/no protective value for regular folks like us, but now suddenly that do now that the health care workers have enough of them?

    We don't have any evidence the social distancing is working.

    It's tough to make me want to see a bitch die more than I want to see Jane Fonda die ... but this axe wound Pelosi has achieved that honor.

    The fact that some stupid fuck of a priest actually gives her the Eucharist baffles me. I don't take communion most of the time because of my rage & verbal rancor ... but Pelosi actually does evil & still takes the host.

    Fuck her eternally ...

    Received science changes everyday.
    And everything is literally the end of the world.
    Sensibility is way more stable.
    And it's been defeating Darwin's dad since forever.

    actually there is data that supports it. California saw cases earlier than most states and went on stay at home fairly quickly and the trend is steady while states like NY waited 6 days after California to stay at home are getting hammered. Of course there are other factors at play in NY.

    Florida which failed to follow stay at home until yesterday, has an exponential “fast” growth rate.

    Now, once we lift stay at home and people start to interact with each other again, we will see a second wave and ultimately, this shit will be a seasonal virus to deal with in cooler months.

    just the beginning I’m afraid.

    I think the fever data from the smart thermometer company is really interesting as the fever rate seems to have fallen within days after stay-at-home orders. But this isn't conclusive and there may confounding factors.

    The fact that we are for the most part only testing people that are hospitalized means we probably have to wait another week to see if the stay-at-home thing is working. Incubation is 5 days, and hospitalization is usually about 10 days after onset of symptoms. So really would take 15+ days to see the results, which is right about now. If cases level off in the next week, it's a really good sign.
