    What was the magic number of deaths that people thought would make the quarantine worth it? I remember someone saying 100k and others higher. We're at 92.6k today. And yes I know the sources are being manipulated.

    How many were reported to have died from Katrina? 8 Million including everyone in the Super dome (who turned to bestiality and cannibalism, why they f@cked the animals and ate the people instead of the other way, who knows)?

    My answer was 100k - but I will say I have all along meant actual deaths due to the virus, not the asymptomatic who got counted anyway or the guesses.

    Steeltoe What's my move?

    Close enough. If it wasn't for the politics. Events appear to be perpetually doomed though. Don't see a way around it. :(

    It looks like other countries are swabbing the inside of the mouth when testing for Covid.

    Why do they put the Q-tip way into peoples noses in the US?

    Not sure , but I thought I remembered seeing that swabbing of mouth was the antibody test .

    So they have a justification for using a test if the symptomatic person tests negative.

    Someone at the hospital: "Why did you use a test kit on that patient?"

    Dr. Dadjoke: "I thought it was COVID-19, but it's snot."

    :D

    100,000 people dead in two months? Nothing to see here, it’s just the flu.

    All died with covid, not all from covid...a minor distinction with major implications.

    pickled egg Art is subjective

    And how many died for lack of medical facilities?

    82%. 82 fucking percent of MN deaths are from residents in long term and convalescent centers. Meaning the death toll outside the old folk homes is less than 200. In a population of 5.6 MILLION.

    As I sit in my van in Shittyapolis, ready to start a day’s work, and NOT wearing a fucking mask.

    Not all....they only had to have some symptoms, not be tested....according to our health director here.

    And that is true. A freind`s grandfather passed 3 weeks ago; had previous (2 yrs) lung issue, and had no symptoms and was never tested...they tried to label him civid. His wife said fuck no.

    I had to wear a mask for the first time yesterday, Mendards won’t let you in without it. It’s weird how the mask has become political in some way. I hear you on the numbers, I’m just saying the “flu” people were off on the death toll.

    How much do you cost for a day? I’ve got a house full of electrical issues. I’ll even pay you for Beeb time.
