    I understand that medical companies have to charge more than just the materials cost to recoup their research and development including manufacturing costs. But a 100,000% mark-up is total highway robbery according to my monkey brain. Pricing for Epi-Pens are crazy, too. You can buy a syringe of epinephrine (adrenaline) for $20. But put that drug in an auto-injector and you get charged upwards of $600. Never mind the fact that the US military already paid for the research and development of the auto-injector for atropine.

    The people dying in my white community are F A T Texuuns and Californians. These collective dumbfucks believe wearing a god damn piece of clothing stretched across their F A T faces impedes on their illusion that they have freedom. No one in America has freedom. Are you fucking kidding me? Anyhoo, these stupid fucks do not deserve any medical treatment for being stupid. Let these F A T motherfuckers DIE on the steps of any local hospital and then kick their bloated bodies out of the way for the maggots to dine on their F A T sweaty flesh and then film that for your CNN/FOX/Corporate cock sucking sound bites.

    Maybe then these shitheads will learn.

    There are many delicious decaffeinated coffee varieties that are just as rich and flavorful as the regular brands.

    I don't know which is more useless... decaf coffee or non alcoholic "beer".

    Decaf. I hate both...but there's something so utterly offensive about decaf coffee.

    I've never accidentally bought near beer. But I've accidentally bought decaf one or two times and my wife and I ended up with massive headaches before we finally figured out what the fuck was going on...

    Private gatherings will have to include no more than 6 persons.
    There are currently 80 casualties from covid a day here, and 3,000 new cases.

    Authorities want to avoid general quarantine like in March and April, for economical reasons, no doubt that.
    But those measures that were announced are just stupid IMO. What effect will limited gatherings have on the circulation of the virus, while elementary, middle and high schools alllow it in big scales?
    We are over 1,500 people where I teach, students, teachers and employees, all wearing a mask but potentially spreading the disease around in many ways.
    Cases occur among students every day. But those daily massive gatherings don't seem to worry the government. What's the use in limiting the number of persons at home?
    "What about large families?", of of my students asked yesterday. Indeed...

    I'm just pointing at illogical decisions made here, I'm not obsessed with the virus and don't worry for myself. It's just that it seems their fellow citizens' health matters to them as long as the economy isn't at stake.
    My coworkers are growing more and more mistrustful towards decision makers, and anger is swelling...

    I read the same comments here every day Jérôme especially from my friends who are teachers.

    France and Britain are making the same mistakes again. If you are half assed all that happens is that it goes on longer, more people die and you have to go full lock down in a few weeks anyway. Both countries should have just shut everything at the start of the month including schools for a couple of weeks - that's what the scientists said to do.

    This new 3/4 assed approach seems to be the worst of all and people are getting pissed off.

    I agree, Sesh. Half-assed measures, taken in the name of holy economic growth, no matter how much harm it may cause to some people.

    I'm in a doctor's waiting room just now because I have fever and feel tired and like black and blue - but still can smell.
    If I caught the virus, no doubt it was at work. But I don't think it is covid though, just classic flu.
    I have to make sure.

    A staffer at our high school tested positive. This has created a whole shitstorm in the village. I don't have kids so there is no effect on me.

    With the current increases reported around the world... I've come to the conclusion that the medical, scientific and epidemiologist experts still don't have definitive answers to competently advise... policy and decision makers aren't making the best choices...

    Appears the humans don't have a handle on this... not sure what's up with the Scandinavian countries. Are they really that low of infection rates or are they not testing at the same rates other developed countries are... or just damn lucky..?

    A funny parody on the policy and decision making process.

    Funny video...

    That guy who made it is a spittin image of an old buddy of mine Mike... who back in 78 lost control of his Harley doing about 80 MPH and crashed through a dental office. He and the bike passed through 2 exterior walls and the lobby. He lived to tell about it...

    After 2 years in the hospital and massive reconstructive surgeries, I picked him and we were sitting in my car on the cliffs of Capitola, California catching up and a cop checks on us to see if we were partying, which we weren't. Ran our ID's and arrested my buddy for a failure to appear warrant from his wreck 2 years ago. He still had a full cast on his leg and we showed the cops his discharge paper work from the hospital... a 2 inch thick folder's worth. They had to call an ambulance to take him to the jail because they couldn't fit him and his full leg cast into the police car. I followed them and bailed him out 30 minutes later...

  17. Thanked ZahZoo for this KICKASS post:

    I get that there is due process and legal procedures, and it's an oversimplification to say this, but it's asinine the cops basically arrested him to shake down for bail money.

    I've talked to people that live there and there are a few reasons. Scandinavians are real sticklers for rules, if the government tells them to do something they really fucking do it. It's to do with social contracts and so on, the government helps them and they help their government.

    Secondly Scandinavians don't hang around in bars that much. Thirdly they already maintain more social distance at normal times, they aren't as fat, they have fewer comorbidities and excellent government healthcare.

    All that said, they aren't that happy with the way things worked out.

    HERD IMMUNITY CANNOT WORK WITH THIS VIRUS.

    It is unachievable because you don't get enough antibodies.

    Read an article that Sweden is considering localized lockdowns as their infection rates are up 170+% and are experiencing one of the highest death rates per capita in the world.

    Maybe they were just lucky and it ran out rather than they had an effective approach...

    I'm half-Swedish and have visited maybe 10 times. I agree with much of your post...but I will say that my cousins spend a lot of time drinking in Swedish bars.
