  1. I said WE (America) haven't reached herd immunity. I used India as one of several examples of other countries that saw some of their highest deaths of the entire pandemic in the past few months, thus disproving claims such as "deaths aren't up this year because the weakest died last year" and "Delta is weak."

    also for the record, I am a wrestling fan so I already knew that several countries forfeit to Israel in wrestling/taekwondo/judo. To get away from Biles, here's a pretty cool story - former Iranian that now represents Mongolia takes silver - https://www.timesofisrael.com/winning-judo-silver-in-tokyo-iranian-defector-mollaei-dedicates-medal-to-israel/
  3. Correct. We know their covid deaths have been woefully undercounted (as admitted by many in the GC in the "Screw India" thread). It's just a matter of by how much. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-57154564) https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-56969086 And yet even if you believe their numbers, my initial point still stands. They had a bigger spike in deaths in May of this year than any point last year. So what was that about all the weakest people dying last year again?
  4. Yeah India may have herd immunity. They also may have had 4 million covid deaths. https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2021/07/20/1018438334/indias-pandemic-death-toll-estimated-at-about-4-million-10-times-the-official-co

    can anyone explain what qanon is?

    If I had to guess, I'd say maybe 150k? Or about 0.2% of those that voted for Trump in 2020.

    So what’s your number? Zero?

    More than 1?

    Pretty much this (well I’m not in those types of groups). I don’t think anyone is saying the majority of Republicans believe it, but some definitely do (and several of them seemed to be in DC on 1/6). That’s kinda why I bumped this thread with that article about Parkland - it’s evidence that there are really seemingly normal people that go down the rabbit hole (and I didn’t feel like starting a new thread).

    She had the yips. Maybe if Rick Ankiel took himself out of the 2000 NLCS the Cardinals would have fared better.

    I think she said this was basically the problem. Apparently in the past she did it “for herself,” but now she felt like it was “for others” which was causing too much pressure. I don’t think she should be praised for “being brave,” but I think she should be praised for giving her team the best chance to succeed if she knew she wasn’t at her best. It’s better than a star football player or whatever that is injured and not near 100% but refuses to come out of the game.
  11. Weird, it’s only weak in countries with a high % of people vaccinated. I wonder why that is?
  12. Seriously. We have one thread claiming obesity is the greatest threat to America’s existence, but another claiming they all died last year. Gotta love the GC.
  13. And yet excess deaths have closely tracked with covid deaths in countries that actually counted covid deaths properly. Many countries saw significantly more excess deaths than covid deaths likely due to undercounting. The few countries with less excess deaths (including some less than expected overall) were largely those that locked down hard and/or had an overall good response to covid - https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/coronavirus-excess-deaths-tracker
  14. Japan did just off the top of my head. Regardless, what’s your claim here? They didn’t test everyone last year but this year they are?
