How I learned to stop worrying and love/hate the face diaper
Further to the point I made earlier with you on mask effectiveness.
N95: yes. Anything else: virtually pointless unless you just want to "feel" like you're doing something.
Missed the why thing. Like JVL, detest Gorka, mask writing spot on
Man I missed the show! This is why we can’t have anything nice.
Damn Matt, I see the crazies have arrived. They really don't get sarcasm, irony or nuance, do they? It is so binary with them. 'It must be this or that and if it isn't this or that then it's the other or nothing or everything'. Although I have relatives like this, I have really enjoyed your articles. Forget the crazies and just know that I will continue to enjoy your writing. ALSO . . . I am a PAYING customer! Tee-HEE.
It's astounding the efforts people will go to convince, coerce, and or force others to do something in the case of this pandemic, whilst at the same time being lethargically inept when it comes to lifestyle changes that will allow one to survive not just covid, but lower ones cancer risk, prevent diseases, and increase longevity. Antibiotics/Overcrowding in factory farming? Only a small subset of people care. Added sugar (inflammation) in everything? Only a small subset of people care. A nationwide lack of exercise? Only a small subset of people care. These three occurrences being changed would reduce not just covid deaths, but also the deaths caused by diabetes, heart disease, cancer, antibiotic-resistant infections and more, but once again only a small subset of people care. If I go out of my way to lead the healthiest life possible, why should I have to wear a mask, to prevent the spread of an illness a vaccine is available for?
CDC already said that 6% of claimed covid deaths were actually from covid.
Being on a ventilator in ICU is the same as listening to Xmas music. You poor soul, having to suffer so much trying to catch your next histrionic breath.
In the past two years the US had had 1.2 million deaths due to cancer.
That’s just two years!
In order to make a proper comparison, you need to have the correct denominators. Covid deaths in the USA = 788,000. USA population = 334,000,000. Covid caused 0.2% of the deaths. Grossly, the Covid deaths are greater, but the percentages are different. 16,000,000 Americans served (not all of those fought, so were not at risk of death) in WW2. 291,000 died. WW2 killed 1.8% of the Americans who fought. The Civil War killed 7% of those who served. The point is, you're not comparing apples to apples, and your statistical analysis is way off. The total number is greater, but the risk of death is much less with Covid. Statistics are being used to scare the masses,
You’re comparing teens and 20 somethings who lost their entire life to 80 year old boomers who feared and cowered their entire lives, especially death.
Bad math bad article. MrNasty is the image of the beast in the bible.
Matt where did you get your math education?
-The civil War "alone" is 618,222. 360,222 from the North and 258,000 from the South, this comes form the Civil War museum at Gettysburg.
-Defense Casualty Analysis System notes 58,220 deaths in Vietnam
-WWI American deaths: 116,516, source Smithsonian.
-World War II- 405,399: source Smithsonian.
- Greek Civil War 1944–1949: 06: source Smithsonian.
-Chinese Civil War 1945–1950: 164 source Smithsonian.
-Korea -36,913. ABC news
GRAND TOTAL OF DEATHS: 1,235,430
Keep in mind I also kept out the 'WARS" you did: American Revolution, War of 1812, French and Indian War, Spanish American War, American Indian Wars.
Where did you get your numbers? R/
While we're talking about killing, it is a known scientific fact that silver and copper each kills bacteria and most viruses (to include COVID) on contact. I have a copper infused mask that (based on pure science) outperforms all others.
Most MD's, pollical leadership, and talking heads (MSM) ignore science.
Then there are the many cheap drugs that wipe out COVID, again ignored by MDs, MSM, and pollical leadership.
I can't believe the afore mentions people so da-- dumb. Or are they just out for power and the almighty dollar?
Google the topic. And see
studdd prose again buddy!
The Spanish Flu, if it killed 675,000 Americans, killed .006553 of the population of 103,000,000 in 1918. Covid, based on the death count in this article and American population estimates for today, killed .002377 of the population. Populations change over time. Proportionality in this case is more important than pure numbers of people. Meaning in a much more urbanized and interconnected society, covid still caused a much lower deaths per capita and is likely to do so, even looking at the next years ahead. Of course the covid pandemic death toll was tampered down with the vaccine, but in consideration of all points in this article, if the vaccine does indeed save lives, are we still to wear masks forever? If you choose perhaps, but most do not.
Poor research on US war deaths that a simple Google search would have cleared up...
