    Coronavirus

    Yes, it looks like the number of new cases is still rising linearly worldwide but linear is far better than exponential. I also noticed the increase in the number of deaths actually is slowing down. You can clearly see it here: We're probably getting better at treating this, which is good...

    Coronavirus

    Brazil is now in the number two spot for number of cases. Number six for number of deaths but that's rising so rapidly I'd say they'll be at number two in less than two weeks. They may even ultimately give the US a run for its money for the top spot. So much for the hopes the virus doesn't...

    Coronavirus

    Of course not. It's just a little humor. I wanted to photoshop bat wings on her as well, but I couldn't get the end result to look credible. Cats can actually get covid from humans but my understanding is they can't pass it to humans and they don't show severe symptoms...

    Coronavirus

    It looks like my cat caught it. She's fine other than for some very strange side effects.

    Coronavirus

    You're probably right. A lot of Democrats are hypocrites where they might do stuff like give lip service to climate change, but are driven everywhere in limos, have huge houses, and constantly fly. Of course they don't want a true progressive to come to power because it might knock one zero off...

    Coronavirus

    Totally agree with everything. Biden is better than Trump in the way a glass of lukewarm milk is better than sour milk but seriously, what an uninspiring choice. The Democrats complain about Trump winning, but maybe if they ran and picked better people in the primaries this wouldn't have...

    Coronavirus

    Yep. I've noticed the same. For what it's worth narcissistic personality disorder leads exactly to the kinds of brutal dictatorships I mentioned under the right circumstances. Thank goodness for our system of checks and balances, at least so far. Give Trump another term though, and he might find...

    Kind of like some other people we know from history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Stalin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mao_Zedong https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idi_Amin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pol_Pot

    Coronavirus

    If nothing else, this might make the election a nonissue. If he kills himself taking this, I doubt Pence will get enough votes to become President. I know Trump wasn't the brightest bulb on the string, but this just shows the depths of his ignorance.

    Talk about a case of the worst timing ever: https://www.tmz.com/2020/05/07/2020-us-quarters-fruit-bat-bad-timing-coronavirus/

    Coronavirus

    What I'm finding really interesting is that there are countries with extremely low case fatality rates. Singapore has 25,346 confirmed cases but only 21 deaths. That's a case fatality rate of only 0.083%. Qatar has 26,539 cases and only 14 deaths, for a CFR of 0.053%. Both of these countries...

    Coronavirus

    Or it mutated into a strain which spreads even faster but is less lethal, and this displaced prior strains. From a Darwinian evolution standpoint this would make sense. In fact, as a general rule viruses generally mutate to less lethal forms, which in the long run could be good news for us. It...

    Coronavirus

    :ROFLMAO::LOL: Trump is busy rewriting history to increase his chances of being reelected. Now I'm no fan of Biden, but I'll take him over Trump at this point. Last thing we need is someone in the White House in the middle of a pandemic who is clueless about science. Trump is a legend in his...

    Coronavirus

    I'll go with the vodka. After all, it supports the opinion of that great medical expert our President that taking disinfectants internally might be a cure for this.

    Coronavirus

    It sounds like our only option then is to remain in lock down forever. Without an effective vaccine we're not returning to normal. Getting to herd immunity is unthinkable given the mortality rate. So what's left? Hope the virus mutates to a much less lethal strain and that strain displaces...
