The covid skepticism thread was not for his outlandish nonsense. You can be skeptical and also sane. That thread was for the type of thing you shared in your follow up. Skepticism of the "world is ending" math.No.
Bohter is a niche poster.
I'm saying there's already a thread specifically for his very far outside the mainstream posts which have become more like spam/off topic in this thread.
While I'm certainly not promoting recklessness, I'm not sure this bug warrants the hysteria. There doesn't seem to be a rational voice anywhere in leadership, and none of the docs I know are overly concerned that this presents an imminent threat to the population at large. It's just not...forum.surfer.com
it shows how selfish, stupid and fractured our species has become.
maybe this is will be nature's way of getting rid of us cause this won't be the last pandemic and there will be worse diseases to come.
It was so simple all we had/have to do was these four things:
1. Wear a mask when in the presence of others
2. Maintain separation from others and don't gather indoors
3. Constantly clean your hands or find a way to stop touching your face (face shields)
4. Stay home and more importantly isolated from others at the smallest signs of sickness (stay abreast of changing symptoms)
But we as a species couldn't do it
our human weakness/need for social interaction/acknowledgement proved greater than our will to survive more importantly to preserve our economy.
people think they can just magically will it away and make everything the like it was.
That's not going to happen
life as we knew isn't coming back
things will be different when this is all over
one thing that needs a serious re-examination will the current ease of global travel in the future
I can see the idea of quarantines after traveling to certain parts of the world being adopted in the developed world just like we adopted TSA screening at the airports. No more free virus transport on planes, trains and ships.
It was bound to happen anyway.My area is very rural and also very old. We have little health care infrastructure. This has been the busiest summer probably ever. Beaches are packed. Town is packed. Lines at the gas pumps all day. Plates from every different state. Large groups travelling together.
We are now seeing community spread of Covid in this county. So surprising.
Yes. Already max capacity breaks in socal are now overflowing. Parking is non existent and you'd be lucky for 4sqft of sand to pop an umbrella up. Meanwhile it's 100 degrees for the next week with rolling blackouts in LA and all of the inland empire and valley are heading this way daily. Going to be a sh!t show for the unforeseeable future.Have all beach towns been overwhelmed by crowds of poorly behaving tourists/daytrippers nationwide during this mess?
