I still don't personally know anyone who's contracted it, but I do know someone who lost an uncle and aunt to it.

Here's some stupidity.  You remember when Arizona and Florida were shooting through the roof in their case counts?  I have an in-law who went on a "girl vacation" sort of thing to both places in the middle of that.  They all went together, flew, and went drinking in bars and other nonsense.  Got unknowingly infected.  Then she met up with her 65+ year old father while he was on a road trip in the area.  Got him sick.  Then they flew back to recuperate, confirmed with COVID, without telling anyone on the flight about it.  And infected multiple other family members once they got back.  So yeah, I know 5 or 6 people who've had it now...

None of them died thankfully.  The father was feeling absolutely awful for weeks, but is on the mend and doing better now.

I am not scared of contracting Covid for my own sake, but I'm very nervous about unknowingly passing it to my parents, who are in their mid 70s.

or it cold be that covid is weakening. lots of college students coming back to school have tested positive and virtually none of them even required hospitalization.  these things do run their course

I guess I wonder what you mean, exactly.

Some organisms change and become less virulent, or else we change our defenses (like with vaccines and other public health measures).

Some wishful thinking, but not logical.  We've known for a while that the young people seldom die and don't get pneumonia from covid as often.   It's basically a linear graph of age and comorbidities correlating with severity and death.  That hasn't shown any sign of changing.

i remember what i wanted to say one of the side effects that Colbert was saying last night of the drugs he's on is burning ass. i''m not even joking he said that. well he knows all about being one so it's fitting that well... 

as for the science i'm not sure how that would work if it's gotten stronger or weaker on how i read it awhile back it's gotten stronger cause as you said it's mutated.  but who knows maybe i'm wrong i dunno that's how i read it as

I've had a couple passengers who've had it. it doesn't sound like fun, but obviously they lived.

i have an uncle who died of it and he  was living in a nursing home he had been ill to begin with but catching covid didn't help the matter though. honestly i forget he even had died and it's a great uncle actually who i've met only like once or twice in my life and that's about it. i am not sure if any other relatives have died from it though

Steven Miller- the bald head Nosferatu guy who tells Trump what to say- is Covid positive.
That makes at least 10 people in the White House that are positive.
And some Pentagon officials too.


Gotta love him!



If either one of them smiled their face would crack up and split. Like a wax mask. I bet even money they crawl into a closet after they have sex and cry! Likely has more fun if a leather queen is beating his ass!  :tongueout:
Of course that's all JUST MY MIND. I may be wrong!

i don't care what trump's doctors say i think he's still got it and i would not be surprised if he was forced to give him an all clear, Covid does not get out of your system that damn fast.  i was watching a video about this yesterday and they were giving his heart rate or rather were talking about how the info we now have about how Trump's imitation of a heart is doing. from what they claim he has the heart of a 25 year old Athlete and we know they thing he picks up other than a golf club is a cheeseburger and some KFC.

he's gonna infect more people and he just simply does not give a rat's ass who dies not that he ever cares to begin with. but this is just murder and he's of course getting away with it which is just screwed up beyond belief

Oh dear...

QuoteAntibodies are a key part of our immune defences and stop the virus from getting inside the body's cells.

The Imperial College London team found the number of people testing positive for antibodies has fallen by 26% between June and September.

They say immunity appears to be fading and there is a risk of catching the virus multiple times.

now Casper Pence has as of yesterday anyways 5 people in his office that have it and he still refuses to take precautions that's not at all surprising but it disgusts me how everyone who seem to work for that family including the family just does not care about infecting anyone, anyone at all nor do any of them care if anyone dies from it either regardless if they have it or not.

QuoteAfter suffering financial trouble because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 58-year-old former construction worker didn't know what to do with them at first.

Should he take money out of his retirement savings early, making it possible to keep caring for his dogs in rural Northern California? Or should he give them away to ease his economic situation?

"I couldn't find a place to rent that would take dogs," said Crowe, who works in a warehouse making $17 per hour part-time after his hours and other work options were reduced this year. "It was horrible."
