    Of course that was just the flu.

    You'll see those numbers again this year. Then a little later you'll see even worse numbers.


    I'm guesstimating half a million dead in America by the end of the year, barring a miracle cure. Europe will see between 100k and 200k deaths. The rest of the world... Millions upon millions.

    Lemme say that again... I don't care. If. The accusations against Trump. Are factual. Or not.

  • Yes. There should be a reckoning... The Chinese government may not have unleashed this thing on the world, but they sure as hell did their damnedest to help it spread, and tried to sabotage the response to it by other countries. The Chinese government needs to be destroyed.

    Why would you think the USA would be hit harder than Europe?


    Spain and Italy have as many cases as the USA, add Germany and France, and Europe seems to be getting hit harder in case numbers.

  • WWIII. That's your solution to a pandemic.


    Jesus Fucking Christ.

    You do understand that those countries were exposed to the virus weeks before we were... don't you?


    And that a lot of those countries were able to test far more people, far earlier, and quarantine them?


    Why is that not obvious to you?

  • They're really bad at math, twat.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis

  • Europe is far more authoritarian. Shelter in place here means shelter the fuck in place or the cops will billy club you half to death and fine you a year's wage worth.


    Liberty comes at a cost... Well worth it in my honest opinion, but it does have its disadvantages.

  • I moved house today. The real estate company had to send one of their company vans with the paperwork to escort me and the Jag to the new apartment. It was like a mile maybe and the cops stopped us twice.


    And this is in a city that still only has one confirmed case, and one suspected.


    When European countries go martial law (ish) they go medieval... It's a strange place to be right now let me tell you.

    If I have country A with X amount of cases, and country B with X amount of cases, and a 2% mortality rate, which country will have more deaths?


    I have problems predicting with unknown unknowns, you apparently do not. An interesting trait for an engineer.


    I certainly cannot predict a number of fatalities from say Germany without the proper data.

  • I have problems predicting with unknown unknowns, you apparently do not. An interesting trait for an engineer.


    without the proper data.

    You had no problem predicting that I googled something,with or without any unkowns.So much so you had to waste time googling something to find out if it was even on the net.......That's for SURE.... But you were convinced you had the proper data.


    Life's just funny like that.
