    Coronavirus - Doomsday

    It is probable that you are correct. There have been 50 people with the disease outside of china so far and so far none of them have died. This is also further evidence that the mortality rate may lower than published. The problem is that China has a history of covering up epidemics like SARS, so you cannot say with 100% certainty. I believe if our government officials thought this was more serious they would stop all international flights from asian countries. I think youtube, twitter, and tabloid journalism are fueling the panic.

    Coronavirus - Doomsday

    That is what my link was stating, that the number of infected is much higher than reported so that the actual death rate is much lower. Another thing is that this kills people with pneumonia, you would expect that china would have more people with hidden lung issues due to the extremely high rate of smoking and poor air quality in the major cities. Assuming that my previously linked article is correct, this is probably less than 1% mortality in China and it is possible that we would have a lower mortality rate in the US. Below is the link again. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7933719/Incredible-footage-shows-Chinas-1-000-bed-coronavirus-hospital-taking-shape-four-days.html

    This seems like poor journalism. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jan/26/coronavirus-link-china-biowarfare-program-possible/

    Sensitive Teeth

    Try to find a better dentist? Maybe there are micro-fractures in your teeth that can be repaired.

    Coronavirus - Doomsday

    I think it is up to 2% mortality and slightly more contagious than originally reported.
  7. Good idea in theory, but how will they define fake news. I would worry that it could become political in nature and do more harm than good.

    Movie Theaters...

    I have been to the theater less than once a year the last decade. It is alright, but most the time you are better off being patient and watching at home.

    Goodbye Eli

    He was part of 2 of the best Superbowl plays against the best franchise of the last 2 decades He deserves in the hall of fame, even though he is a slightly above average qb. There is something to be said for pulling off the amazing play on the biggest stage when you need an amazing play.

    Coronavirus - Doomsday

    It may be as deadly as the swine flu, but the sample size is too small. From what I have read the corona virus is more difficult to spread than the flu, so while it may have the same mortality rate, the actual deaths should be much lower. Remember when MERS(middle eastern respiratory virus) was big news 4 years ago for a week or two. It is a corona virus as well, i currently expect this to have a similar trajectory. Panic in the media, followed by indifference. I am wrong alot though.

    Nickelback tour with STP

    I used to think I liked Nickelback. I would stick up for them, but then I got Sirius XM last year. It turns out I like Seether, I thought all of Seether's songs were Nickelback. Embarrassing, but true.
