BUT IT'S NOT CRAP-EATING!
[Comments enabled]

I hate it when I'm right.

Here's a Youtube from a doctor documenting what I suspected when it comes to actual transmission of this thing.

In other words it's nearly all ****-eating.

What was the protocol for presumptive interpersonal spread in a clinical setting where no physical contact had occurred?

30 minutes around said presumptive or actual positive person with no PPE.

How many times was this wrong?  Effectively zero.

So it's easy to spread interpersonally through aerosol, which is the entire argument for "social distancing"?  Bull****ing****!

So how is this thing being spread again?

What did Diamond Princess teach us?

What did I say when this started back in late January?

The same damn thing.

Of course nobody listened to that then and doesn't now.  "Social distancing" does nothing because almost none of the spread happens that way.  How's it spread nearly all of the time?

****-eating.

Wash your hands, you don't eat the **** and you don't get it.

Lock down the entire ****ing country over this when it turns out the spreading is happening in the ******ned hospitals because the people there don't wash their ****ing hands before and after each patient?  Then said person goes home to their family, spreads the **** and..... whoops!

Or, they get on the train, spread the **** and..... whoops!

Where do all the people with it concentrate?  In the ****ing hospital!

And they didn't spread it by breathing -- they're spreading it with their hands.

They're ****-eating, to be blunt.

Oh by the way, NYC?  Full of ****-eating immigrants; people who were never incultated to even the routine washing of hands after using the bathroom!  Washington and CA?  Same deal.  Gee, sanctuary city politics anyone?

One of those people gets on a subway, now the railing on the escalator is contaminated and so is the train.  Someone else touches it and eats ****.

Political correctness, illegal invaders, third-world "imported asylees" and similar and hospital workers are the ones causing these hotspots.  Anyone wanna bet on the demographics of the nursing home workers at Kirkland?

Then there's more.

NY, of course, "shut down their economy."  I said that was stupid and they'd never figure out all the interconnections.  Well, that flying dickhead Cuomo can't even figure out the obvious ones.

No funerals.  They're unnecessary and promote social gathering, right?

Guess what?  The ******ned morgue is now nearly full!  Why that's an emergency for DHS even though that dickhead Cuomo directly caused it by shutting down funerals!  DHS ought to tell him to shove the dead bodies up his ass until he can taste them.

Naw, it'll all be good if we shut down the economy.  We can do this.  We can manage to figure out all the essential connections and we've exempted them.  It'll all be ok.

At least this one only hoses people who are already dead.

Wait until the next one where it turns live people into dead ones.

The shutdowns are madness and must be immediately reversed.

Worked in food and pharma for a long time.

MOST people do NOT wash their hands. We kept getting ecoli in the product, and tracked down to a packer who said the since he had a skin condition, he shouldn't have to wash his hands.

Think about that. Skim condition, packing product, ecoli.

Of course, he was at first fired. Then he complained of discrimination to the union and we moved him to another area of the plant that handled prepressed raw material (let's just say that material is known to have all sorts of micro). Guy got sick, and he suddenly started washing his hands religiously.

That was just one we caught. We spent millions to try to keep the area clean, and one guy would walk in with crap on his hands and F$%K it all up after break.

So saying it is **** eating scares me. I have worked to long in industry to think otherwise. And more importantly, I know that the dreamers are worse than the normal workers.

Enjoy your take out ladies and gents. The stuff in kitchens is even worse.

Orwell's "Down and out in Paris and London" made an impression on me.
"Once the waiter on the third floor dropped a roast chicken down the shaft of our service lift, where it fell into a litter of broken bread, torn paper and so forth at the bottom. We simply wiped it with a cloth and sent it up again."

The book is a great read but check out chapter 14 for imagery you'll curse me for planting in your brain.

Excellent video by an obviously intelligent guy, but his ridiculous buffoonery at the end seriously detracts from the message he is trying to convey.

Why do smart people insist on acting like idiots?

I worked in software specifically writing software for surgeries, prescreenings etc. These centers were OBSESSED by patient satisfaction surveys. Why? Because they would get 40k PER DOCTOR from Uncle Sugar if they met their survey goals. Uncle Sugar incentivized the survey over the care of the patient. On top of that, if they got enough survey's, they would just not show the number of bad survey's under the threshold of what they needed to acquire. Oh and by the way.. those surveys? they are NOT anonymous. How do I know? I ****ing the wrote software to work with these systems at the company I worked with at the time and the 3rd party systems almost ALWAYS required an MRN or some unique identifier. Typically it was MRN or in some cases last 4 of SSN. Why? because they weren't allowed to send duplicates. Sometimes they proxied the UID's with another UID on their end, but hey.. it can all be linked back to a record.

Only paper was anonymous. Never take an online patient survey if you care about TRUE anonymity.

Thanks, Psmcd (I think). That chapter is reminiscent of certain very long chapters in Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle'" that described in stomach-churning detail the making of sausage.

Said Mr. Sinclair himself about his novel: I aimed at the public's heart, and by accident I hit it in the stomach.

Once all the iterations of this current COVID epidemic have passed, one would hope that Americans would vow to "eat less ****."

But I doubt it.

Yes, I agree mostly agree with Dr. Z.... SARS-Cov-2 has a high transmissibility via oral-fecal .. That's been obvious to me from the beginning. Respiratory droplets do spread the Chinese Virus Strains, but to a much lesser extent.

At least one strain has been in Houston for months. The RO was low. So, who knows how many people have been exposed..

Dr. Z had some great PPE. I think I'll wear Darth Vader PPE, too, so I can terrify the Mexicans next time I go shopping at Walmart..

Hey! How about those negative US bond rates? Darth Vader is giving orders at the Fed...

THANK YOU.

I've been saying similar since they started floating even the IDEA of mandatory shutdowns... they've not through it through, the ramifications aren't even close to being considered, and we're going to ASSRAPE THE ENTIRE ECONOMY BY DOING IT. Yes, I now know how it feels, and I'm sick of being right about this ****. Doubly sick of the ****ing scolds - which is easily 3/4's of the entire ****ing country right now - saying how wrong I am and that I just want to kill granny (and my own parents, apparently).

No, *******s, I just can think farther than next ****ing week and see how STUPID THIS **** IS, AND THAT IT WON'T WORK ANYWAY.

Sadly, I'm really, REALLY starting to think this is the all-in moment for the DC lifers (Deep State, if that's what term you want to use) to get rid of Trump and what he represents. The man does some stupid ****, says a LOT of stupid ****, but if this is their biggest play to date... well, it may work. What's more, they love power and ruling the subjects, er, citizenry. This gives them both.

They should ALL ****ING HANG for purposely giving the worst advice possible. I need a ****ing drink.

What Frat said. In spades.
Not just the part about needing a ****ing drink, but also the part about learning that people I thought were good friends, hell even SMART friends, are just so stuck on the "my gov will save me they'd never lie to me" bs that I doubt I will ever bother speaking to them again.

Yep.

My phone number is getting changed after this is over.

I can count the number of people who will get the new one on the fingers of one hand, and further, I'm changing my email filters in a REALLY BIG way.

As for what I do otherwise? Ha! You won't have to worry about me "social distancing" since there are so few people left I will be WILLING to spend time with that this will become both permanent and trivial. Forever.

@Kfell -- China did one before they reopened.

Think about that one for a minute. Maybe the light will come on. If it doesn't, well, I'll let that cat out of the bag (and maybe put him in the kettle) here in the coming days. Maybe tomorrow, maybe tonight.

I just WANT the boogalo to start at this point. I really do.

The sooner a major city goes bat **** crazy, cause there checks are cut off and no one is working. The sooner everyone else wakes up and decides we need to get back to work.

Granted, I have a ton of folks within my FB feed. All of them single theme park employee's (or LGBT childless couples) who are all thinking this is like a paid vacation and no worries at all. God I can't WAIT to see there checks and deposits get cut off.. **** will get REAL.

People think I AM NUTS when I point them to Karl's tickers, try to explain the damage being done... they just don't get it.

@Thelazer - Just put it this way.

Tomorrow, in NYC, your Dad dies.
Of a heart attack, not coronavirus.

You can't bury him (not essential)
You can't have a funeral (too many people; violates social distancing)
You can't even pick up the body, which they're keeping in a meat freezer trailer usually used to transport frozen chicken out back, stacked up like cordwood because the morgue is full due to the first two policies!

That's not hypothetical. It's happening right now.

MN joining the stupidity bandwagon. Governor is ordering SIP for 2 weeks starting Friday at midnight and keeping all service industry businesses shut until May 1. 6 weeks closed....what bar/restaurant/salon etc can survive 6 weeks of 0 income?

I'm social distancing-- I just don't want to get ill, with anything. Case in point: a chick comes in for a cleaning yesterday... and has ****ing Mono. What.the.****ing.****? She tells us after we are finished with her. Twat.

I want my immune system to be at 100%, so if I get exposed to Kung Flu, or whatever, I have a much better chance fighting it.

My squeeze commented that for the first time in months my hands don't look like a mechanic's (they usually do--auto repair has become a sort of hobby). I'm scrubbing 8x/hr at least.

Karl called it-- white man's sanitation. Now open up the f'n country and have psa's about washing your hands, especially in Chinese and Spanish.

Oh ya, first case is reported in nearby Nez Perce county. The health department says it's male under 60, and everything else is confidential. In other words-- an illegal.
