RIP Adam Schlesinger from Fountains Of Wayne, apparently from coronavirus.

probably my favourite songwriter of the last 25 years, and I'm not just saying that. him and the other Fountains guy, Chris Collingwood, pop geniuses.

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

But we *do* know that it originated in China, that the Chinese brought it here, and it is highly likely that the Chinese government is behind the whole thing.

Quote
In late November 2018, just over a year before the first coronavirus case was identified in Wuhan, China, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at Detroit Metro Airport stopped a Chinese biologist with three vials labeled “Antibodies” in his luggage.

The biologist told the agents that a colleague in China had asked him to deliver the vials to a researcher at a U.S. institute. After examining the vials, however, customs agents came to an alarming conclusion.

“Inspection of the writing on the vials and the stated recipient led inspection personnel to believe the materials contained within the vials may be viable Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) materials,” says an unclassified FBI tactical intelligence report obtained by Yahoo News.

The report, written by the Chemical and Biological Intelligence Unit of the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate (WMDD), does not give the name of the Chinese scientist carrying the suspected SARS and MERS samples, or the intended recipient in the U.S. But the FBI concluded that the incident, and two other cases cited in the report, were part of an alarming pattern.

^ China is ground zero for these sorts of studies, in large part because so many of the animal to human diseases originate there. It would not surprise me that they were transferring these materials to American laboratories

My brother was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/questions-about-accuracy-of-coronavirus-tests-sow-worry/ar-BB124KXh?ocid=spartanntp

"Chris Smalley, a primary-care doctor at Louisville, Ky.,-based Norton Healthcare, said the 70% estimate was gaining traction with doctors finding out how well the tests work in the real world, absent better data. He said several of his patients with negative tests went on to develop highly suspicious coronavirus symptoms and require long hospital stays.
Dr. Smalley said a negative result is more likely to be accurate in places like Louisville where the prevalence is low, but could be virtually useless in New York, where it is high."

Talking about the estimated 70% accuracy rating of current virus tests.

I am very proud of Tiana. She's taking all precautions, being she works in a nursing home.

I AM THE BAD PHOTOSHOP EFFECT!


« Reply #176 on: April 05, 2020, 12:52:14 PM »

I am dealing with the fact that it might be an entire year before I really feel safe to do anything outside and go to anything public again.  First, the peak date was thought to be in April, now their saying it might be in may or as late as June.   And since it might come back in the fall/winter, we may only have a few months of what could be called :  normal

My friends and I were planning an out of state trip in late July.  It still might be on, but I would not surprise me if it ends up getting canceled.

It was really nice weather outside yesterday...  I spend some time outside cleaning up some leaves.  I would have really loved to go to the zoo, or take a long walk in the park.  But everything feels like a calculated risk right now.

My family is self quarantining,  so I haven't seen my parents in weeks. We talk through facetime/skype.  While I'm more introverted then them, so I feel I can weather this part of the storm better then them, but I know they have to be a little upset.

I just want all of this over.

Stay strong. You will get through this and it will eventually be no more than an unpleasant memory.

guys i'm praying not in may but by June maybe weather it's early june or mid june that this hell we all are going through will be a memory for all of us a nightmare memory but a memory none the less. one does wonder how long this will even last or what kind of world it will even be when it does go back to what is considered normal. i had to laugh a little when it said that smog is down and while that is good news and i do hope that the people who aren't working or trying to find a cure and who are trying to save this planet will be able to help find a way to save it.

but what would really damn help is we didn't have these idiots who just don't give a damn and insist that the virus is fake news and trying to take a talking cheetoo out of the white house even though that is not the case. the whole world doesn't give a damn about him so... anyways sorry stupid people that don't care about others like safety just p**s me off that's all. i'm not trying to start a political fight here either so if i offended anyone i'm sorry

ya can edit this if ya like i don't mind
