posting wildly wrong inferences is how you roll.  Remember when you predicted weeks and weeks ago that 20% of the world's population was going to die from Corona. In other words the equivalence of one China.   Fair enough for people to buy into the early modeling mistakes that is not their fault, but you took it to a whole new level of absurdity.   

The annoying part is these people will double down on their hogwash. 

Total sheep.

On Friday I went on a walk toward downtown Toronto for the first since my last Corona beer back in mid-March.
 

Destination: Staples.

List of items: yes.
 

For the most part, I felt safe. I’d say the Friday afternoon density looked like that of a Sunday afternoon.

 

80-85% of everyone regardless of category wore a mask. The walk was also through Chinatown, where I’d say 90-95% wore masks.

 

I noticed two types not wearing masks: those who were embarrassed by not having a mask, and surely will get one very soon, and those who were categorically and proudly defiant.

 

Out of that category, most were in their early 20’s or mid 50’s, which really took me aback.
 

Both women and men were displaying this “affront” in their deviance, as if we’re all wrong.

 

In terms of which culture was more defiant, nothing really struck me as more or less defiant. However, by going through Chinatown, it is obvious that people there know what’s going on.

 

Seriously? I'm out and about every day. Work, leisure, travel, etc.

Never wear a mask or gloves.

Pretty much it.   No one ready knows what will happen in the future.   The politicians are really winging it.   I saw an article the other day saying an effective vaccine will never be developed and covid 19 will be among us forever like the flu.  If that is the case, what next?   You can't have a lockdown forever.

 

Probably just continue life as it is. The mortality rate is very low. BC's recent studies were very telling.

No guarantees, I think we can all understand that, but we can be hopeful:

Yup. Approaching 100K dead in US in 3 months. Nothing to worry about. Just a seasonal flu... not. Keep caring for just yourself, you are a great Canadian citizen. What a Don Cherry calls "You people".

That is one hell of a different view than I thought that Ozarks looked like after watching the show!

Here's the thing, how many were near death?

You should read some of the studies coming out. The mortality rate is very low and the sheep buy it hook, line and sinker.

I hope that people aren’t feeling over quarantined, while taking out on others. Please let’s make margaritas, do one push up at home, a BBQ. 

Everything will be calm in my world once I finally get the call with my hair appt date ... my mask is ready :)

Funny but serious question how come we never social distanced, dressed up silly and acted silly for the flu? I mean if the point is not to infect others and cause deaths why didn't we?

How come China welded their citizens doors shut to keep them quarantined? How come people died on hospital floors and in the streets when the hospitals were overrun? How come they had to build massive make shift hospitals to take care of the overflow? Nobody knows? It's a complete freakin mystery?

If a hundred years ago you would’ve gone up to someone and said one day we would be riding a sky train while connected to the entire world on a 3” by 5” device with which you could communicate instantly with anyone in the world and even with the people in space...

 

...you would’ve been put in a straight jacket in the back of a horse carriage and brought to the asylum. 
 

But they did dress up silly until vaccines became a way to predict the next wave of such a phenomenon.

The people that can't answer a simple question are so obvious.

Sorry mate. strawns is one of the most coolheaded, realest, even keel posters on this site, and I’m sure he’s a pretty cool teacher to.

 

I’m for Mr. A.
 

Take someone else’s apple.

 

Mr A taught two of my kids. I don’t feel sorry for them at all. They still talk about him in positive terms.
