    Google Chinese government killing its own citizens. 35,000,000+ since 1949. Recently, outspoken business men, scientists, doctors, researchers, have VANISHED for speaking out. The guy who tried to warn the government about COVID, two weeks before the initial outbreak was put into prison where he died from COVID. I know it’s scary world out there kid, but step out of your bubble and check out reality. This world sucks.

    So, does that mean you are endorsing China's governmental structure over the US?

    Btw, let me mention something here. A ton of information gets passed around by otherwise smart people like it is a virtual certainty or at least a high probability of occurring. Then it doesn't come anywhere close to happening. Think of the original projections for US and Worldwide deaths as an example. Another example is the stress to the health care system that was predicted last April. One institution predicted they'd have between 4300 and 14,300 inpatients from Covid at the height of the pandemic. The reality is they had about 400. Now fast forward to today. They are again predicting hospitals will be over run with Covid patients. That directive is inside the article I just posted above. Given the sheer scale of their prior miscalculation, should people just assume this time they will be correct? EDIT: Some guy said I will be on my deathbed claiming Covid was a hoax. Ok, that's ridiculous. But here is the thing. It's obviously NOT a hoax, but the reality of the virus should not give rise to brazenly shameless fear mongering either. People need to do the right thing, but they don't need to be fear shamed into compliance with "requirements" that defy logic. Why doesn't anyone, and I mean ANYONE, ever do a simple thing like put out a video on how to NOT wear a mask. If someone really wants to get more people to do the right thing, stop worrying about hikers and mounting runners and get these clowns that won't cover their noses in the grocery store mosh pit a better understanding of what needs to happen when they wear their masks.

    No but that's why i mostly focus on law and the parts of the "debate" on what CDC and various health departments say in their public statements. Such as "Alito is insane and unprincipled" and "the reason the Michigan Supreme Court ruled against Whitmer is because she is a Democratic Governor with a Republican Supreme Court."

    Man Mizzou looked really solid this weekend. O’Toole looks off the charts good. Edmonds is a stud and little Elam is legit and all freshman. Throw in their third champ Mauler who killed Demas in the finals and the future is bright. Smith might be the most underrated coach in the country.

    I’m not concerned about the results. I think it’s wonderful. I don’t think they stacked anything. It’s merely a small sample size. It was just funny, not in a conspiracy way, that Pfizer said “we have 90%”, then Moderna said “we have 95%”, then Pfizer said “we have 95% as well!”.

    Exactly as you describe, and this is how all vaccines work. They trick your body into thinking it has been infected by the virus already so now it has the tools to either prevent infections altogether or respond more rapidly in case of reinfection. Each subsequent exposure increases your ability to respond (this is why you get a booster shot. It’s not even worth speculating, as you are doing. We are talking about both Pfizer/biontech and Moderna/NIH reporting independently that their vaccines, which use the same technology, are 95% effective. The data will be published soon, but I guarantee you that these groups are accurately reflecting their results and the vaccine once widely administered will end the pandemic and provide immunity to those who receive it.

    Then what is your point of even responding to Janderson133?? Just to try and portray some sort of intelligence by using big words? To be a troll? Or would you care to provide your opinion on the matter? Here, I'll show you how to do that, in my opinion, the US could have done a better job but hindsight is 20/20 and it is super easy to play arm chair quarterback. To think for one second that anyone from the president on down WANTS people to die and PURPOSELY makes decisions knowing people will die is completely asinine. Even despite all that, I wouldn't want to live in any other country regardless of how "well" or "poor" arm chair quarterbacks think they have done in handling the virus. Especially China!!! Not sure how anyone could even remotely think China is "better" and/or the information come out of that country can be trusted. Heck in a free country like ours one can't always trust what is "put out there" by the news agencies and our freaking government. Anyway, all the freedoms and good things about our country FAR outweigh the bad...by a mile...compared to other countries. And one of the greatest things about our country...if you don't like it, you are completely free to leave. Guess what...that isn't true in China! See klehner...that's how you respond and answer questions. Or do you just enjoy being the troll?

    Thanks Hokie! The other part of the development of a drug/vaccine is the safety concerns and it appears neither are demonstrating any sort of adverse reaction or toxicity. Again, sample size is smallish and time will tell since there hasn't obviously been any 2 year long double blind studies on safety.

    Ok I’ll drop this and then sit back and enjoy the thread from now on. CoVID Vacccine November 9-10: Pfizer & BioNTech; incomplete results; 90% effective November 16th: Moderna; complete results with safety data; 94.5% effective; submitted for emergency approval Today, November 18th: Pfizer & BioNTech; complete results including safety data; 95% effective; submitted for emergency appproval. Without seeing the sampling procedures/criteria, I couldn’t tell you whether their samples are valid but I do know they were small. 30-40K in the samples and only 100-180, respectively, contracted COVID. Of the 170 who contracted COVID in the Pfizer trial, 162 were in the placebo group and 8 had received the vaccine. The data isn’t public, only high level overviews of the findings. Additionally, confounding variables, stuff that can contribute to an observed result, such as age, weight, other sicknesses/diseases, etc., have not been mentioned, and that may be purposeful, which is concerning.

    It's not a false dichotomy - the individual stated a preference for one over the other. Personally, I disagree (as noted), but the dichotomy is very real - I prefer this system to that one, and cu155 views the other as a worthwhile trade off. I'm not sure how to make that one simpler. "People can argue about 'freedom' all they want but the reality is that someone in China currently has much more freedom to go to school or a restaurant or a doctor's visit without fear of contracting and dying from Covid than someone in the US. Not a bad trade off."

    Dude - you're nuts if: 1. You think that any information coming out of China on this topic, or any other is accurate. I mean, from concentration camps (https://www.businessinsider.com/video-chinese-ambassador-confronted-over-blindfolded-uighur-muslims-2020-7), to COVID cases (less than most US states) - there's a well documented history. 2. You'd trade this for that. I mean, life sucks sometimes in the US, but at least you get to live it without worrying about the government disappearing you because you're suddenly out of favor. But, as I'm reminded frequently, some people like different stuff. You might honestly prefer that, and that's ok.

    You misread. I said 37.5% chance off pure numbers alone before factoring in ability. You can't argue against 3 divided by 8 being 0.375, or 37.5%. Also that was 37.5% that they MEET not that either or the other wins it.

    Since someone in your house is a professional, have them show you a simulation of the pandemic using EpiModel on R. If they don’t use R, or have access to epidemiology add-ons to for their modeling software, try out GLEAMviz. I’ll leave it at this, but think I’m going to take some time off this thread for a while after, I guarantee you, few people are listening to what the true experts, not the mouth pieces, spokesperson, media release writers, the true experts, the ones working 80-100 hours a week on this. This is vague, I hope, enough to tell. I began consulting for a state department of education in the south central United States early summer. I was to use my expertise in education, research methods, epidemiology, and biostatistics to help that state open schools safely. By the end of August, they refused to listen, told the school districts if they didn’t open by a certain date those districts would not receive funding. I expressed concerns, was told I could resign, I explained I would but they would be required to pay out the remaining, agreed up compensation. They agreed. I now consultant, as I like, for various other organizations and it’s pretty much the same thing. I tell them what I found, sometimes they agree and I keep going, sometimes they don’t and I get paid to leave. Please try to stay healthy and safe everyone!

    I do ask this question. This is why I wear a mask when appropriate. And not a flimsy cloth mask or gator sleeve either. I won't wear one when it provides no benefit on the side of a mountain.

    And you trust China because why? What evidence exists they are truthful with the outside world about literally anything? Btw, they literally welded doors shut to suppress people. That would never fly here. https://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1703503427818 https://www.the-sun.com/news/378365/coronavirus-patients-welded-into-homes-in-china-as-death-toll-spirals-to-813/ And this too ... The communist system, with its tight control of information and its accountability of officials only to their bureaucratic superiors, not to the people below, has been undermining social trust for decades. Citizens do not expect a volte-face in trust just because a deadly virus appears. But without trust, people’s immune system against lies breaks down.In the public sphere, all belief becomes ungrounded belief. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/mar/08/china-ill-not-only-coronavirus-communist-party-control

    Well you know how great China’s government is, so obviously it must of been meant in jest. I’m not getting into a pissing contest with anyone over politics, public health, or foreign governments killing their own citizens to meet their agendas. So no need to quote me and hit me with “well, ackually ...”

No need for conjecture to the nth degree. If this is the situation ... a bit lame. This is wrestling. They have called each other out. All you need is a mat. Let’s not be prima donnas about it.

    Is wearing a mask even an enforceable law? In Michigan, the Supreme Court ruled against Gov. Whitmer and her newest "order" is getting some serious blowback. She has "ordered" bars and restaurants to shutdown again and many are refusing since another lockdown will almost certainly shut them down for good and there is no funding available to fall back on. The simple truth is most of this is NOT legally enforceable and are SUGGESTIONS. Now, I personally am following the suggestions and they have done very well so far for my daughter(been attending school in-person since August) and my family. However, I CAN see how many others would see at least part of this as an infringement. As long as they aren't doing things to directly cause risk to others, I can see their side.

    How am I unwilling to defend my position regarding not wearing a mask on a mountain trail? And how well thought out was your flimsy assertion that AHamilton or I not wearing a mask far away from others outdoors would lead to the breakdown of civil society? And you making that assertion in a year when murders are way, way up in our major cities. We have far bigger problems than a guy running up a mountainside without a mask, which really can't be proven a problem at all. So it sounds to me as if you are the one waving your white flag. Btw, I DO wear a mask in the grocery store because I feel it has value to both me and everyone else. I don't wear one when sufficiently distanced on a mountain trail because I feel it offers no value to anyone in any practical sense. If a large enough crowd showed up on the top of that mountain sufficient to make social distancing impossible maybe I'd feel differently, but I have to tell you that I climbed numerous mountains this summer and almost nobody on the peaks of those mountains was a mask wearer nor was any crowd large enough to prevent social distancing. Those hikers were young and free people enjoying the great outdoors and I, the most at risk in that cohort, enjoyed the shared experience.

    CKWC would alao give them a run. The only guarantee HWC would have is 57 and that is IF Lee participates. 65) If there is an allowance and Pantaleo is manning this spot at 150lbs-ish or higher, I'm favoring him over anyone HWC puts out. Storr in and it becomes a toss-up with whoever they out out. 74) I am favoring this version of Massa over either Kem or Lunchbox at 74. 86) Taking Amine or Abounader over whomever they throw out. 97) Beazley-Warner would be good, although I wouldn't be surprised to see Abounader or Amine manning this spot too. I favor Amine or Abounader over Warner. 125) Parris or Coon or Hemida(haha) over Cassettesman.
