I'm seeing more and more congregating going on every week. Also, this week actual stories about people getting together known by people I know. Quarantine fatigue is real and here, IMO.Before that you were saying May Day was going to be go time. I'd say you overestimate the general public.

It was the plot of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six before all the video games came out. At the 2000 Olympics in Sydney eco terrorists funded by billionaires wanted to use a biological weapon spread through cooling misters at the entrances just before all the attendees were to to leave to go home spreading it to every country in the world simultaneously.
Back in 2005-6 some Harvard Medical students did study the viability of using misters like that to decontaminate large groups of people exposed to small pox on airliners, public transit, and whatnot. No idea what their research determined.
Because it is not medical nor scientific, it is political.
Part of the problem is the stats are garbage because the data collection is sort of garbage they don't even really know how many people have actually been infected yet. They can only make models off whatever little data they have. Basically it's like political polling but probably far worse in accuracy.
I work at one of the hospitals in boston and listen to the daily teams meetings, the numbers were high but not "holy crap we cant handle it" high. they are starting to open up other aeras of the hospital again and research labs can come back as early as june 1stThe only stat that really matters is, unfortunately, the one Worldometer doesn't give us: hospitalizations. Lest we forget, THAT was the raison d'être for this whole shitshow in the first place: not overwhelming the hospitals. We can infer it to some degree by their "serious/critical" column. This is why when I do those charts for Connecticut in the other thread, I emphasize that.
Cases are a function of testing - we know this from the experience of Iceland. They tested everyone in sight, and thus have among the highest incidence of cases on the planet... HALF of whom they found were completely asymptomatic.
People use that term "Safe" or "stay safe" or "its not safe yet" like it was raining bricks outside. I believe these are the same people that are scared of their own shadow, and only because someone told them to be." Gov Baker just wants to keep things shut down a little while longer, till we are all safe"... I choked and blew my coffee out of my nose.. That f-ing hurt....Paul
$20??? Yikes! Although I suspect Joe to retire soon, or because of this and I'll be up to a man-stylist for $25 plus tip. And not be able to walk-in anymore. LOL8:00 on Friday is haircut time. I'll drop her a fifty for a 20.00 cut.
I'm not really trusting much of the intel from China. Ditto for Russia. We're to believe that in Russia, their death rate is a FRACTION of the rest of the world??? Like 1 of 100 that CATCH it are dead??? Instead of 3 or 5 or 10%???? C'mon.Interesting that more than half the deaths in Mass are women. Differs from early data from China about men being more susceptible.
Plus what they report. Again, looking at China and Russia. I don't trust their #'s. Heck, scientists estimated C19 deaths in Wuhan based on satellite data of crematoriums to be multiple times what was reported. I mean, it isn't hard to find the truth to their #'s.that's the magical property of statistics, it's like a condom, it takes whatever shape it needs to.
Worcester DCU closed shop as a backup hospital facility this week.

My barber charged $13. My daughter cut my hair yesterday. A little shorter than I prefer, but it isn't bad with the warm weather. I'm going to give her $10 and call it a day.$20??? Yikes!

Not to be insulting, but given your userid, and the recent "little shorter" haircut - I thought you had mange.Worcester DCU closed shop as a backup hospital facility this week. Maybe yesterday or the day before.

Are they doing that to feel better about themselves when they re-open?
LOL We're an engineering company (or used to be), but these metrics are being pushed and used by our senior manglement, most (all?) of whom haven't done any engineering in at least 15-20 years. These metrics sound impressive and scientificy, but 30 seconds of actual analysis shows they're crap.Are they doing that to feel better about themselves when they re-open?
Because most of that data is sh*t.
It'll only happen if we let it.When I hear the term "new normal" bandied about by politicians and career embedded apparatchiks (and already parroted by many of their subjects), I cringe in the same visceral way I did when I first heard Obama say he was going to "fundamentally transform America".
To the leftist if you don't like a thing, you simply change the definition of the thing. Normal doesn't include an infinite number of genders, it rejects the welfare state, it understands that if someone is an illegal alien they are by definition a criminal, that there is evil in the world, that there are winners and there are losers, etc.. Viola, the new normal will encourage all that was not normal, it is in fact the anti-normal. Probably came through the wormhole from that backwards running parallel universe NASA believes they found.
The statists and globalists have perpetual wood and moist panties and bless the Chicoms hourly for the opportunity the WuFlu has given them to finish the "fundamental transformation" of America into the "new normal".
OK, what are "K2 gelcaps"? Is this potassium?... Just give everyone a bottle of D3+K2 gelcaps and tell 'em to get back to work.
OK, what are "K2 gelcaps"? Is this potassium?
For some reason, I remember my mother taking potassium; either to help with blood pressure medications or maybe estrogen, not sure which, or both. I guess bananas have a lot of potassium also.
Vitamin D is an upregulator of calcium absorption. Fine and dandy, but it can find itself in places it doesn't belong, like arteries. K2 prevents that.I didn't see any mention of potassium in that K2 article. So is it NOT potassium?
Also, it mentions a lot about calcium. Lately, salsa and spaghetti sauce hasn't been agreeing with me (too acidic), so I'll take a couple generic tums some time around 9:00 so I don't get wicked heartburn. Those are mostly calcium. Is this thing saying calcium somehow isn't good for you? I figured if nothing else, it makes up for lack of milk drinking, so my bones stay strong. TL/DR.
