  1. It occurred to me that the RAN needs nuclear subs not to fight off China, but to hunt down people trying to escape the quarantine.
  2. An elected leader talking directly to the press without filtering/interpretation by the WH press secretary? You people really are just apes in bowler hats.
  3. Very interesting! I stand corrected. AFAIK, no changes in ODs in my AO. Gang bangers have been off the chain last two months, but the local crime town had a record number of homicides last year but it's looking like 2021 will have half or less the homicides. Weird. I have found stats on suicide attempts up to 2019, but not 2020. 2019 had fewer suicides than 2018; it was trending slowly up, peaked in 2019 in the stats I've seen. Here's something maybe not surprising; https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34138833/ But that is a niche demographic, unlikely to be correlated with general pop.
  4. Don't know. The exercise of calculating excess deaths and attributing to COVID is a non sequitur, IMHO.
  5. https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/09/rule-breaking-elites-let-the-mask-slip-on-covid-protocols/ Been a couple more partying maskless of late.
  6. The only confusion the elites experience is that they don't understand why an elite would be expected to follow rules.
  7. No way to tell. Here in the US, for the better part of the year people weren't going to see specialists; cardiologists, oncologists, etc. Plus, suicides and overdoses are way up.
  8. The nice thing about viral standards is that there are so many to choose from.
  9. https://www.science.org/doi/epdf/10.1126/science.abj9853 Upshot; Moderna vaccination seems to be lasting longer than 6 months. Also, the heavier dose shots appear to work better;
  10. I'm beginning to wonder if the J4J6 thing was mostly a troll job by 4Chan or whoever.
  11. If it uses the Lightning connector, they'll spend so much time trying to find a compatible charge port the pandemic will end.
  12. Average Tanknetter, circa 2021;
  13. Some interesting content at Forbes; https://www.forbes.com/sites/williamhaseltine/ You only get 4 free articles, but I have heard on the grapevine you might work around that via the Print Friendly extension for Firefox.
  14. It would make sense to hospitalize only those who have symptomatic infection to the point of needing hospitalization, but I guess we can't do that. It would also make sense to publish the applicable lab stats when publishing hospitalization rates, but we can't do that either for some reason. Data on the cooking of books has been documented outside the NHS.
  15. https://dailysceptic.org/2021/09/18/a-doctor-writes-the-nhs-is-concealing-important-information-from-the-public/ Comments section is rife with Bill Gates conspiracy theorists, but the cooking of books re hospital case counts seems to be a common thing in the Anglosphere.
  16. Don't think too far into the future. Some idiot archaeologist will open the wrong sarcophagus sooner or later.
  17. Don't think of Feebies as street cops that go to the ground with perps. Think of them as accountants with guns.
  18. The mile is inherently Imperial, Roman to be exact.
