    Wow that’s terrifying how easy this spreads. And now with the riots and many states opening, we’re for sure going to see exponential death across the board. There’s no other possible outcome. Death will grow exponentially since spreading will do the same. Only 2 million people have it.

    Well here we go right? If we don’t see the exponential death in the coming weeks... gonna be surprising right? Obviously we should expect to see some growth since we simply flattened the curve with social distancing and staying home somewhat and never tried to snuff out the virus. But if we don’t see EXPONENTIAL death...how can that possibly be explained? Countries around the world opening up, but 90% of the populations are still vulnerable. We know how infectious it is. So here we go. Exponential death. It must be so. The narrative this whole time ONLY supports that particular outcome. So here we go. Buckle up. Stay home. This thing is about to be a brushfire.

    You’re always super calm and polite man. It’s admirable. You’d actually be good in any leadership position. Yelling, screaming, shaming, ridiculing - that’s children and the weak.

    It’s almost like our top experts knew this was going to happen so they decided on a flatten the curve policy instead of a quarantine policy.

    While true, I DO think waaaay more people have it than reported by many magnitudes, let’s not move the goal posts. I’m saying the plan around the world seems to be “let everyone get the virus”. Outside of a few countries, this seems to be the case, no?

    The plan isn’t to let everyone eventually get the virus? Sure seems that way. 🤔

    Outside of a few countries, it looks like the worldwide plan to let everyone contract the virus but slower is still right on schedule since the start. Still have people arguing about all kinds of different trees while the forest is right there staring them in the face.

    **Movies that we Watch** Thread

    My brother just started watching the old Bond movies and texted me that “every boomer whoever ejaculated over these movies should be shot and same with every woman that’s wanted to bang Sean Connery for the last 70 years. This guy couldn’t lift 10 pounds over his head.”

    Can you help me understand how it SHOULD have been done? You’re President Balta, it’s the end of January and Fauci is telling the American people between Jan 20-26 this is not something Americans need to worry about, that the risk over here is low, but that they are closely monitoring it. Not sure what he’s telling Trump but that’s the message out there. Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of people are flying in and out of China and Wuhan. What do you do to ensure only a few thousand deaths?

    So what does this mean? Is it accurate to say that 21300 people felt sick enough to go get tested and 2300 of them tested positive for Covid?

    What about the businesses?

    Exactly. Just because something is open doesn’t mean there will be participation whatsoever. Who the hell wants to go to a bar, restaurant, plane, train, vacation right now...basically anywhere that isn’t home or the Covid-infested grocery stores. There’s a ticking nuclear economic missile flying towards us and opening doesn’t stop it. Just think of all the restaurant pubs bars where some guy or group of people open it up and call it “John’s or Gametime”, or whatever the fuck they think makes it novel because it has TVs and serves booze. Are those places going to make it? Rent could be 5-20k alone for some of these places. It’s a shitshow. im really scared for when people stop getting that $600. Maybe it won’t be as bad as I’m saying? I feel like the only things that will stop it are a vaccine or some proof that most people have already been exposed to the virus.

    I agree, but I think you’d agree that the real shitstorm brewing is unemployment. People are not taking this seriously enough. It’s all roses and sunshine right now, but if the restaurant and hotel industries, and basically tourism in general, don’t return within the next two months, there’s going to be total mayhem. Once all the people who populate those industries stop receiving their little $600 poppers in July...holy shit. That doesn’t even take into account all the hundreds of thousands of businesses integrated with those industries that may not come back. Once the $600 goes away, unemployment won’t be enough to control the masses. That was the whole point of the $600.

    I wouldn’t mind giving him a Lucas Harrel start at some point when we are 30 games over .500

    But don’t we have mechanisms pushing back now? Capacity: Plenty of room for more at hospitals. It’s hard to tell how true this is or not, but it seems that way. Identify: Healthcare knows what they are dealing with now (vs March-April rush and total confusion). Treatment: Healthcare is getting better every day at saving lives. Not rushing to intubate any more, proning, oxygen etc. Supplies: Ventilator-gate never happened. PPE supply is increasing daily since the rush. Public Awareness: People are all wearing masks, making masks, social distancing, practicing way better hygiene, working from home etc. Yes there are morons too, but generally, everyone is being super safe. Sure there are plenty of examples of idiocy and failures in all of the above, but overall, this has been a pretty remarkable mobilization and adaptation of the American people over 6-8 weeks. I think the “real” flattened curve is whatever it looks like with people out and about but wearing masks, businesses open but with 6-10’ spacing, social distancing, washing hands, avoiding handshakes/hugs and generally isolating as much as possible. So yes I agree we will see plenty of spike, but 18 month quarantine doesn’t seem realistic to me either, or even beneficial. We went from “Totally Unprepared” to hopefully “As Prepared As We Can Be, Realistically”. You’re in Texas somewhere too, right? We are basically Sweden-lite, like it or not. That’s the path Texas has chosen. Do you think we’ll see hospitals getting overrun? It’s certainly possible, but it would come slower than NY right?
