It can’t possibly get any worse!
Has anyone made a gif with the scene from Airplane yet? 2020 would be the passenger getting beat up with a long line of this shít waiting for their turn.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, someone get on this!
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, I think they did it in March, def needs an update
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, it’s been made. I’ve seen it on Reddit.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, yeah, I have seen it here, they didn't see the riots coming though lol
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, 451811, give that a whirl
How dare they protest against police brutality? It's like black people want to be treated like human beings or something.
@Depressed Retail Guy, while I agree with the intent of the protestors and that there needs to be change, it still stands that corona doesn't care about your ideals and while protest is necessary, it will definately worsen the covid situation.
@Ruckleschtik, One of my best friends died from Covid so I get where you're coming from. I wish the protests could be done at a safer time in our history but that's not the case.
@Depressed Retail Guy, the protests are fine. The riots are a different matter. It was a big middle finger to any black right advocates of the past
@Depressed Retail Guy, they're undoing months of isolation. I get it, and I agree with you! I do! But we gotta use a little foresight here, otherwise everything we've done will have been for nothing.
@Ruckleschtik, haven’t you heard? Covid is a white supremacy issue anyway, that’s why black people were getting infected
@Ruckleschtik, most of the protestors here are wearing masks. So there is protection regarding it there.
@Cloverleaf, masks are significantly less effective when yelling, singing, or chanting. The force of the air means more viruses can escape out around the edges of the mask. So if a person is unknowingly infected and wearing a mask, but speaking loudly, they will still spread the virus. So even though people *are* wearing masks in the protests, it's highly likely the protests will cause a spike in infections.
@roseleaf, That's probably why the cops are starting them.
@Amethyst Sky, so you think they do absolutely nothing? As you said, it’s likely ‘less effective’ when yelling, singing, chanting, etc. but it’s still far more effective than absolutely no protection. You’re saying less effective like it means ineffective.
Also, we’re only about now starting to get to the point where we’ll see spikes in it from these protests. We were starting to see spikes again from the opening process a few weeks ago.
@Cloverleaf, and if you don’t believe me, do some simple math. If the average rate of infection is 4 (one person infects 4 people) then a simple way to consider spread is to look at a table of how many would be infected over say, 10 cycles of infection.
1 infects 4, 5 infects 20, 25 infects 100, 125 infects 600, 725 infects 2900, 3625 infects 14500, 18125 infects 72500, 90625 infects 362500, 453125 infects 1812500, 2265625 infects 9062500. End number: 11328125
Now let’s say masks were only 25% effective, that reduces the average roi to 3.
1 infects 3, 4 infects 12, 16 infects 48, 64 infects 192, 256 infects 768, 1024 infects 3072, 4096 infects 12288, 16384 infects 49152, 65536 infects 196608, 262144 infects 786432. End number: 1048576.
A roi reduction of 25% means in the same number of cycles the total infected is reduced by a little over 90%.
@roseleaf, In my opinion the riots are fine, as long as it is public property and the money lost comes from the government's pockets. Looting is wrong, but when peaceful protests fall on deaf ears for 100 years and the government does damage to your body and community the only way change will happen is with riots. Going in during a riot and stealing is looting and wrong. You use the situation for personal gain. So I also think that these youtubers going out and videoing the riots for clicks and not helping or protesting are looting in a sense. Using the cover of a riot for personal gain. FTP ( just the racist ones and the ones who cover for them)
It's started by memorial day stupidity not the protests
@Davrial, that and being locked up for a month with nothing to do
Don't forget about the new outbreak of ebola.
@Assetone, and the war brewing between India and China
@Hot Coffee, damn, I forgot about that one on my 2020 apocalypse bingo card
Italian doctors have gone against orders and decided to perform autopsies on a few Covid patients’ bodies. They found valuable information learning about the bacteria that causes the illness and are better equipped to create a vaccine. Remember kids, question authority and disobey because there’s a good chance they tell you what they do to keep you in the dark and dying.
@Chifilo, ....this is a virus, not a bacteria. Please don’t spread misinformation.
