I'm sure you'll run through many more, given time.


You are such a dullard.

So, yeah, air pollution in Italy not to mention Wuhan which is one of the world's worst places. It may be the numbers are going down in Wuhan because the pollution is down due to the shutdown.

How Does Air Pollution Affect the Lungs? Breathing in air pollutants can irritate your airways and may cause shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, asthma episodes and chest pain. Exposure to air pollution puts you at risk for lung cancer, heart attacks, stroke and in extreme cases, premature death.


What the fuck, call it COVID-19.

Not the angle I'd take but with a little bit of imagination and curiosity one could think that maybe the troublemaker is the pollution rather than the elusive novel coronavirus.

Hmm, this looks like a challenge to conventional thinking and may be interesting for someone with a whit of curiosity.

First of all it was all a big hoax (you claimed that on Feb 16th, which is where your endless garbage started).

Then it was influenza.

Now it's pneumonia, caused by smog.

Next week it will be.........


Have you ever thought that if it is pneumonia or flu, then every single health care worker in the world that has dealt with this outbreak (just imagine how many hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, that is), every single Govt worker, every single member of every Govt, absolutely every person that has claimed to have this contagion and every single one of their friends and family ...... all of them, thus far, are involved in this 'conspiracy'. Just imagine that,if you please. And then, most importantly, ask yourself - why? What do they possibly get from this? And then realise that what you are claiming they are all doing this for is to help "Big Pharma" rip every last one of us on the planet off?

Just have a think about that. And stay off the websites. And come back into the real world.

But then here is a legit German virologist saying how this whole thing is horseshit - but saying it in German (with subtitles).



And whatever reasons I may have attributed to the fake pandemic are due to 1. my innate skepticism of big pronouncements and 2. what I have read i.e., pollution, big pharma profits, bio-weapons, bad tests, etc. Rather than knuckling under and understanding that almost everyone is right so I must be wrong, as hard as it is to believe, I still think almost everyone is wrong and I am right. The German doctor thinks so too.

And there is this too.

Anytime you fancy answering this, I'll get back to you :

Your question is a really good one and does cause me to double think what I am doing here. But then I thought I had told you the answer. I think I'm right and all those workers, etc., are wrong. Maybe inside they know it's horseshit too but they're all just going along to get along. I really don't know. How does an army attack? How does a nation elect a moron? How can there be so many techno fans?

As to why, it could be Big Pharma. It could be a drill gone live again. It could be a bio-weapon attack. But from what I am reading now this is likely a bad flu season and the hype surrounding it got out of hand but precedent shows how this thing will end and probably soon.

Read the "Corona State Of Mind" thread.

viewtopic.php?f=47&t=146517&p=4065544#p4065544

It's not 'just flu' and it's not 'pneumonia'.

More importantly, it's not a fucking hoax either. So far 7950 deaths from 198,000 infected.

Why waste your breath on twats who are more upset about their gym being closed than they are about thousands dying and millions losing their livelihood, DD?

The way things are going, you may well need it for more important things later on - struggling to stay alive for example

Hoax, no.
My nephew has it apparently.

He caught it on a school trip to the hospital in oxford.

He is young and fit and I’m sure will be fine.

I’m in hospital as we speak - for something completely unrelated! - and a medic told me that you either get it bad or mild there’s no in between.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

I’m in for a minor procedure before I start dialysis - great timing!

I think my nephew is on the mend now.

Dialysis will give me something to do in lock down.

They couldn’t dig out the tube they embedded in me in December soooo, I will have to come back on Friday for them to dig around with me under a general anaesthetic.
What larks!

Lovely people at the RD&E though as always.

There are Sakha totem poles near the town of Gualala (wah-la-la) that were built in 2012 and 2014 by people from the Sakha Republic who came over to celebrate the 200th anniversary (2012) of Russian presence on this part of the California coast. We are staying a mile or two from Fort Ross which was a Russian fort back in those times but still a little surprised to come upon those totems further north.
