A man is spit on for removing his mask while EXITING a Costco. I hope she has to do at least a few days of jail, just because.

The first thing I do when I exit Costco is take off my mask, so I coulda been this guy.

Would he be legally justified in slapping her after that?  Hard enough to do some damage  angry

Her nose looks like it's been broken before.  I wonder why?

I've got a bright red Floor Warden hat which could be construed as being a MAGA hat.  I was tempted to wear it out a couple of days ago just for grins.

Then I got a rush of brains to the head and decided not to with all the self-righteous schmucks and schmuckettes running around loose.

This particular schmuckette proved me right.

Looks to me that she's a little low on endorphins. Any volunteers out there to give her an orgasm or two?  cheesy

She can probably spell it, but I doubt she knows what the word means.

Be nice to have a name attached to that story.  I bet he was in one of the vulnerable groups.

I still wear my "obedience training mask" when shopping or at work.

On occasion I also call it the "mask of humiliation"  laugh

The Chicago area is one of a few epicenters of mass neuroticism and madness of the crowd here in the Divided States of Diversity.

In clown world everyone is required to wear the clown mask.

If I run into someone like that, I'd prefer to handle it a little differently. It might be fun to keep asking them repeat themselves, and let them know you can't hear them, because of the mask.

What is the point of that linked article?   Huh?  It reads quite intelligent .... but claims covid19 disappears in the summer.  It's the middle  of July and not only is it still here,  in the hot hot south it's spiking!!!

Some of the article sounds good .... but I must question it because atleast one assertion seems erroneous.

But,  I'm not a biophysicist or a virologist.....   so what do I know? Popcorn

I'm not trying to be contentious but  ....

Does "spiking" just mean an increase in testing?

As I understand it, respiratory illness tends to be more acute in warmer weather. So it's not that the summer just somehow weakens or kills the virus; it just makes the effects less severe. Also, normally, you'd expect less contagion in the summer, because people aren't huddling together, at home. Still plenty of huddling at home this time around.

Well as most here know, I reject the reported numbers of deaths out of hand.

You, me, we, are flat out being lied to, they inflated the numbers and even admit to inflating the numbers. They are admitted liars. Fauci is a lying bastard, about several things actually.

The spike is in reported cases, reported cases go up with increased testing.

Hospitalizations and deaths have plummeted.

I don't deny it is a nasty virus that some folks have a hard time fighting off.

The overreaction and neurotic little girl panic that has been promulgated is so out of proportion to what has actually occurred is something out of a dystopian novel.  

I go along to get along because I live in the middle of clown world and don't need the hassle. But even here in clown world folks are increasingly getting tired of the nonsense.

Has anyone determined the percentage of positive cases vs amount of tests over time?  I'd like to know if there is a larger percentage of positive results for a given number of tests this month over last month and the month before.

I don't see daily info for the whole country so I grabbed some state data.

In early April we were looking at a rolling 7 day average of 4-5 tests per case.  That crept up to a peak of about 23 tests per case in late June, and has since fallen to about 10 tests per case.

Unsurprisingly, late June also coincided with the highest testing rates.  Current daily testing rates are almost half of peak testing.  Whether that is due to something like Charby's testing manipulation conspiracy theory or general change in test demand I don't know.

Daily deaths peaked in late April at about 13 new cases per death.  Daily deaths are trending clearly downward and are currently sitting at a rate comparable to late March - almost 1/6th of what they were at peak.  Not sure if that is due to fewer severe cases or better treatments.

Thanks cordex.

We can probably expect to see a rise in hospitalizations and deaths this fall. The virus is still spreading and the cold and flu season is when it will impact the most vulnerable.

On a side note, historically the response that worked the best during pandemics was to quarantine those who were already infected, limiting who they could expose. Then separately, quarantine those who were most vulnerable limiting possible contact with those who had the virus.

Instead we quarantined everyone shutting down just about our whole society.

Then governments forced facilities filled with those most vulnerable to take infected patients.

Historically during pandemics people understood that fresh air, sunshine and being outside was healthier than being locked in a building. Our government(s) locked down parks, beaches, millions of acres of "public land" even going so far as to harass people congregating too close together in their own neighborhoods.  

Now I get it, there are a lot of stupid people, especially in the poorer sections of big cities. They became the baseline by which restrictions were implemented along with the facilities of the most vulnerable where most of the deaths seem to have occurred. The majority has been lorded over based upon lowest common denominator.

The absolute inversion of what has actually always been known about pandemics is enough to make me question everything the government says on the subject.

Well,don't worry, even if you keep your distance, wear your mask, etc., you're still going to die because...

AIR CONDITIONING!

Of course, let's turn the AC off, make the Europeans happy, and we'll still die from the heat. But at least we won't die from the Beer Flu...
