My sister-in-law's brother died of COVID today.  I never met the man and believe they were estranged.  Before that, I learned a long time pal 's boss is in the hospital with COVID. 

Sorry to hear that.  Bluesad You're near the epicenter.

It's okay, I don't know these two people but obviously it's close.

Thanks; to be clear, the sister-in-law I mention is NOT my beloved Gayle who passed in 2014.

WTF is Taki magazine- and why should I believe it?  Question
That's some magical thinking there. Wow.  BounceGiggle
Don't believe everything you read on a website.

And in the long run- who gives a f**k what the Chinese eat? It spread faster in China because they are packed like sardines in cities. Lotsa folks. Up in Mongolia- well- they don't give a f**k. Nobody goes or lives there. Except maybe folks who are smarter than any of us! It ain't about nationality- it's about population .

I love this one- from the same webpage!

They call Joe BIden 'Rapey Joe"!  Twirling
I really think this site is a parody. It has to be!  Buggedout

https://www.takimag.com/article/rapey-joe-gets-fingered/

Yup! That's some 'Hard Truths" there! Holy Gawd Dam! Talk about fake news! This makes the old Weekly World News look like punks  BounceGiggle!

The Flu pandemic 100 years ago was thought to have started right here in the USA (millions died worldwide). 
I would like it if nobody ate "exotic animals" but, I ain't eatin' horsesh!t.   TeddyR

RC - its a right wing site. what part of it do you disagree with?

don't attack the messenger

and Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault recently https://www.vox.com/2020/3/27/21195935/joe-biden-sexual-assault-allegation


so how do you guys think the epidemic started? I'm very curious because most people in the world believe it came from bat sold in a so called "wet market", very similar to how SARS and Bird Flu started

lets hear a logical disagreement thats not just the jumping up and down emoji

All of it. Talk about 'fake news!"
Ssh! It's all conjecture and plain old bulls**t. It's like watching the 'Ancient Aliens' show, just making up s**t and calling them 'facts' to fit their belief system.
I don't have the answers- but I don't pretend to, either.
This isn't about politics, and and shouldn't be. It's too late to place blame on anyone. I've heard theories that it was a chemical weapon developed by the Russians, fer crying out loud! And who knows?
But all this conjecture is not helping matters at all.

one problem thats not addressed in that story is how the bats, which are not native to the area, ended up in this "wet market".

https://thebulletin.org/2020/03/experts-know-the-new-coronavirus-is-not-a-bioweapon-they-disagree-on-whether-it-could-have-leaked-from-a-research-lab/

after SARS the Chinese govt set up a research facility in Wuhan to study animal to human transmission. so some people, including scientists from China, have speculated that THAT is how these animals ended up there. possibly taken from the lab and sold to people who like to eat "exotic" animals, which is the gimmick of these markets.


prevention this from happening is the key. we can't shut down the entire world every couple months for one of these things. We won't be able to "flatten the curve" every time, human imperfection being what it is

I don't know how or why it's here. I'll leave that to the scientists. Not by listening to unproven theories.

I will agree that eating animals like bats and monkeys  and rats is a stupid idea. They carry lots of germs.
Hell, they eat fish if not cooked right will kill you!  Buggedout
