There's starting to look like there may be a correlation with metabolic disease, i.e, people high blood pressure, cholesterol, etc which may be why COVID-19 is killing people who otherwise wouldn't seem like they're vulnerable (e.g, people in their 30s).

For example, if you're too young to have thought about checking your vascular health and suddenly your immune system goes into overdrive you could find lungs filling up with mucus - this could mean smokers and/or people who live with smokers would be at extra risk, etc

course all of this is super preliminary...

Looks like we've got ourselves an oil war:



Theory is that the Russians are driving chaos and delivering a body blow to the US shale sector

Well geez, now Biden is just out and out calling himself a placeholder candidate:
"I view myself as a bridge, not as anything else" [nods to Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Gretchen Whitmer] "They are the future of this country."

See this is why I have a problem with him.

If he is a placeholder, why vote for him? lol

I think that would be the best reason to vote for him!

On a different note, I'm filling my car up with premium unleaded that is only $2.33 a gallon.

Short answer is, he's not Trump; longer answer is due to how management and administration works and the fact that, in professional management, there are no savior candidates, only savior process ... which is also super boring and nobody wants to hear about process.

For example, Ed Deming was a genius level manager who saved industries but the key is not to hire Deming, it's to just implement his process. BOOORRIINNGGGG.

A good candidate is typically a great salesperson, but a shit manager and administrator so they need to hire a great team to do it - AND LISTEN TO THEM. Biden is simply openly saying this: I"m the candidate, but i'm going to build an awesome management team from the next-gen.

(you might remember that the only reason we know who is Elizabeth Warren is, is because of how she managed the 2008 bailout)

The best president is someone with lots of experience administrating - Biden has that, having helped turn the Great Recession into the longest bull market in history, so that's a pretty good indication of his ability to hire the right administrators to run the country.

Trump, on the other hand, is a con-man candidate who believes his own bullshit, so he hires horrible administrators willing to actually try to make bullshit a policy pursuit.

Well... looks like Mr GrussGott is, so far correct.

Now lets just see if the general population is as smart.

Must watch for your REAL Corona risk (listen for "healthy people in their 40s dying", "primary transmission route is just breathing") - this guy knows his shit 1000%, and I tell you that from personal experience

Are you that surprised considering how incompetent Trump has been these 3 years?

Then we have a smart ass Utah Jazz player purposefully touching everything at a press conference, then tests positive for COVID 19.

I LOVE irony and I love seeing people get their comeuppance. I am not perfect but I also don't act like an know it all jackass, thinking being in the NBA makes them somehow immune.

It's definitely a keep your kids home / work from home / don't go out without
a N95 moment. Horrifically hard to do, so the question is, will the US be more like Italy or more like South Korea?

Plus, a few things people forget:

(1.) COVID is not in place of the flu, it's in addition to the flu and you could get both.

(2.) It's possible to get either or others multiple times

(3.) We don't know why in some people covid migrates from their throat to their lungs causing pneumonia, which means nobody is really safe.

(4.) Note on stats like "80% chance you'll be fine" - there's a joke in health care: the average person has one tit and one nut. Which means, if you're an 80 year old with gene x then your risk could be zero ... and if you're a 30 year old with gene y your risk is 90% - it's only when you average those that you get 80% overall.

And even then, think of it this way:

Say you're prepping to board a flight of 200 people heading to Chicago. The captain greets you and says, "Afternoon folks, a quick announcement: on this flight today, 40 of you will be hospitalized and 6 of you are going to die, but good news: That's only a 3% death rate and there's an 80% chance you're fine!!"

Would that be a flight you'd take?
