Honestly it's not that hard
Incredible how trying to slow or stop a pandemic has become a topic of political division for some
@The Landshark , this is honestly a microcosm. If the media and the experts was honest from the start this wouldn't be happening. Not to mentions the Karen's on both sides that are exacerbating things. It would take a while to explain in detail.
@The Landshark , a pandemic is defined by spreading around the whole world. The flu is also a pandemic. Its something that once started cant really be stopped.
@The Landshark , it’s because it fundamentally has to deal with caring about the health and lives of other human beings. Which right leaning people simply don’t.
@That one lurker, at the start, no one knew anything. They shared information almost as soon as it became available. Compare the speed of information sharing in this COVID outbreak to the SARS outbreak - it was months faster. Part of the challenge has been that it was too fast - people wanted any information, right or wrong. Then, as we learned more, some info was shown to be accurate, some inaccurate. Then monday morning quarterbacks, with 20/20 hindsight, complained that the media and experts were "not honest from the start". The problem is not the media or the experts, it is the demand for immediate, accurate information without using the prudence of time to sort out the reality.
@occasionalmutant, I get what you mean about hindsight bias, and the accuracy of information when it first sutfaces. But those in power in the U.S. were informed of a concerning outbreak in the beginning of January, weeks before we saw our first cases. I'm not trying to make a big point or anything, but people knew of this well ahead of time and failed to act
@Chifilo, Right leaning people do care about the health and lives of other people. As far as political policies go, they just favor self reliance over government reliance.
@Chifilo, says the guy who just told someone they deserve to die... Guess we know which way you lean, huh?
@occasionalmutant, I'm not exactly sure how new you are to the discussions. China has been a major player throughout this entire ordeal. Both in the origination of the disease and the active spreading of it.
A bold claim I understand, lend me a minute.
The virus originated in China, at an out break point with in a half mile from a centre of control and disease research facility. Symptoms of this problem was starting to be noted back in September of 19. In December China stoped all incoming flights before becoming officially aware of the viruses existence. The official papers states January. The reason why we know about earlier subjects is whistleblowers in the media as well as doctors reaching out of China. A single doctor was forced to recuse himself and say that there was no virus. Once China officially recognized it, they started to lock down hard, even locking people into their homes to starve them.
@occasionalmutant, in the US, we was in the middle of an impeachment trial. The moment that Trump start talking out against it in Jan, the medie and the Democrats dieting the WHO. Deemed there was no problem. This was during the time when the WHO was taking point with Chinas policy, complete and utter obstipation. Saying it was not a big deal, until the panic from the outbreak in Italy and Iraq. This is the time we started seeing the first few cases here in the US. In the beginning of February trump shutdown travel from China, he was excoriated on this, with opposition stating racism as reason. During this time high ranking Democrat politicians in both California and New York, proclaimed that's a trump was targeting specifically the Chinese to force them not to celebrate the Moon Festival, they then encourage people to go to the Festival to not be racist.
@occasionalmutant, there is literally too much information to give on this particular subject. 2020 is reiff with problems of every other year.
The worst part of it all it is really hard to start looking into this stuff. My information comes from a guy by the name of mister metokur, if you're willing to watch though a few livestreams then you can find him on minds.com. He got flagged from YouTube because of a harassment campaign from the diaper furry community.
I'm not joking.
That would be a fair place to start, for fallow up, I'd say Timcast on YouTube is a good source. He sections groups of videos by date, and leaned heavy in covid as it has come out.
@The Landshark , while I do think the pandemic is an actual threat I think the whole thing is a multi government scheme and was released for political purposes. I just think that the virus itself had been humanly manipulated and there are number of reasons for people wanting to shut everything down.
@The Landshark , shoot all the stupid people we don’t need them and the deaths will force the others into compliance and silence yes I’m a monster but I am a monster that prefers results over empty philosophy when it has the potential cause me and my family harm
@Chifilo, not true at all. You expect other people to care about your well being and vis versa. I believe you should look out for you and make the best informed decisions for you and those you are responsible for. Every single disease has a kill rate. Nothing 100% curable. To be scared of a disease that is essentially the flu, symptoms and all, is just baffling to me. Scary phrases like "stay home, stay alive" are programming people to believe this is the plague. Did you know that the common cold can kill you if you are high risk? So why aren't we always shutdown? What about every flu season? Just saying your mask theory whether they work or not is irrelevant to the fact you are being conned.
@The Landshark , the whole shut down became a political piece of crap. It seems to continue.
Bold of you to assume I care that much about you. I dont. Get wet.
@Pang, Piss on me daddy
@TriangleTesticles, does @Pang look like R. Kelly?
@Pang, woah R kelly
@Pang, that's why this is a poor analogy. Id rather pee on someone else then my own leg
@Pang, people like you deserve to get the Rona and die. Please do so
@Chifilo, 98% survival in the US. I won't but u sure hope your grandma does ;)
@Pang, bold of them to assume I pee uncontrollably...
But how else will I claim my territory and assert dominance?!
@Whole Inn Juan, power top
@Whole Inn Juan, you cannot, fear is to be your master now.
I don't like this analogy
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, because they are trying to make you wear pants?
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, put them on, are you're pissing on grandma.
@Empshok, hits too close to home.
A fart is definantly the better analogy here.
Oh ya, Covid is spread from piss we shoot out of our nose.
@RecoveringVegan, it’s called speaking and spit, you may not be aware but when you cough or sneeze or even drool a little , and you speak and it gets places, that people touch and then it spread thus making others sick, and they could Inturn infect some at home. So be considered or don’t leave the house simple
@DrSin, you do know this is called funny pics right?
@RecoveringVegan, I may have found my new fetish...
@Whole Inn Juan, just do you man, just do you.
@RecoveringVegan, exactly and when we do we cover it with our elbow. I don't just cough or sneeze in people's face!
Ohhhhhhhh so that's why we wear pants, there's not a single shred of evidence that says wearing pants completely negates the chance of getting piss on me, same with covid
If masks worked this well and Covid was as bad as the media portrays we would have bio containment bins to dispose of all PPE. Also there would be no need to inflate the numbers of covid cases and deaths. Regular flu season didnt happen this year because all of those cases were rolled into covid statistics. Yes covid exists, yes people died from it. Yes regular flu exists, yes people die from it. Yes cars exist, yes people die from it. All I'm saying is its not the irrational bs boogyman that the media portrays. When this started CDC/WHO said dont use masks unless you are tending to sick people. Last month the WHO once again said the same thing. So if you want to wear a muzzle thats your choice. I have already had covid and recovered so leave me alone. Also millions of others have also recovered and fvck off with the "you can get it again" crap. IF, IF I do my immune system will kill it quicker this time. God Bless America and everyone have a good day.
@mycatsanahole, also, I agreed with you. Also, what’s really stupid about this meme and you don’t have to agree with me but I gotta say it is that it’s really a bad analogy. But people will eat it up. Walgreens. I love Walgreens. They make you wear a mask. But for what? The cashier wears a mask and gloves. But I give her my credit card? And so do hundreds of people a day? And I get it back? And I push buttons on the keypad? And I pick up the bags she hands off? And I use the items she touches to put in the bag? But the mask protects me? K.
@mycatsanahole, yeah people dont realize how easy it is to fvck up with a mask. If you wear it for 8 hours and at any point adjust it you now have the infection on your hands. According to cdc guidelines if you take off or touch your masks for any reason you need to wash your hands. I garauntee you basically no one is doing that. You scratch your face once and its on your hands. And anything you touch after that is an infectious surface.
@mycatsanahole, oh and yeah, me touching all the place with my hands apparently if I wear a mask it also protects other people from me.
@mycatsanahole, plus God's chosen expert Dr fauchi has said that masks don't help, then said masks totally help and everyone should wear one. The information is all over the place and if you trust what the government tells you at this point, you're a damn fool.
@mycatsanahole, glad to hear you recovered and to each their own but I'm not patronizing any business that doesn't require masks. I've got an at-risk son at home and I would very much appreciate everyone not BAAAAing me and intentionally coughing on my wife like a bunch of assholes.
@No Lollygagging, anyone that intentionally coughs on you or you wife should be charged with assault whether they are sick or not. Common courtesy. My mother is also at risk so she and dad has self quarantined. I take groc to them, spray the containers with lysol and leave them on the porch. Its individual responsibility to take care of yourself my wearing a mask or not isn't going to save you.good luck and God bless
But if you can't change out of said pee pants you get pee blisters
in which case urine trouble
This would be a great example if we were talking about liquids, and not microscopic droplets that can permeate most materials
Shjt analogy since I WANT you to pee on me.
If this were a segment of Steven Crowder's "change my mind" you would have successfully changed my mind
Finally a honest mask meme. Mask don't prevent u fully from the virus but if u wear one u don't spread it
If I don't want to get peed on, I'll just move out of the way. I don't need to violate your freedom to not wear pants.
@Doctor Yak, if you’re not wearing a mask, you’re the one going around peeing on everybody
@Cpzombie, but my bladder is empty. How can I be the one peeing on people if I have no pee?
@Doctor Yak, because symptoms can appear long after exposure to the virus, the whole thing is that you don't know you have it until you get symptoms. Once you do, it means everyone you've interacted with or been near for the past two weeks is now also at risk.
@Simetricwl , I'm reasonably certain I don't have it. I hardly leave my house, and I hardly interact with other humans.
Wear a face mask or urine trouble? Did I paraphrase that correctly?
Some people pay a lot of money to get peed on though.
That makes sense
Well. Wearing most pants won’t actually help keep you dry but hydrophobic pants should be reserved for those working in high piss settings. Besides, it’s hard for two people to piss on each other while they are both wearing pants and that’s what we’re really trying to avoid.
