Quoted from PinJim:

The local Kroger (Louisville, KY) had brisket and pork ribs on sale for $2/pound last week. I’m still kicking myself for not buying brisket. Our damn freezers are full. I did buy and make some ribs, yum yum...[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

That's beautiful. I loves me some baby backs. And yours look superb. That will become a staple if times get seriously sideways.

I was chatting on WhatsApp today with a good friend and colleague of mine in France. A friend ours and her family are battling with COVID19 at the moment. Her son has it rather mild, her case was kind of medium and they are both on the mend. Her husbands case is much more serious, but they think he is going to pull through (although that was questionable up until today).
Appearantly one of the side affects some of them are experiencing is loss of smell and loss of taste (even after recovered) as well as trouble breathing and getting tired (winded) easily.

I was well aware that this can cause permanent lung damage, but don’t recall people discussing loss of smell and taste buds.

Maybe some of the members in the medical field can chime in if this is a common thing?

I think they wear them more as a response to smog & pollution in their country though no?

They wear them even when they travel, we get many visitors here from that part of the world and it's common to see them walking around here with masks on at the beach communities.

Quoted from Jaybird815:Did you book one?

No dude. Because I'm not stupid. That said, I'm on the phone with my dad on the daily imploring him to not book another cruise. To his credit, he did cancel his June voyage. But if cruise lines are trolling the way Levi posted they are, fuck. 80 year old people are susceptible to that BS

It is. I don't have immediate sources, but I recall anecdotal descriptions of this phenomenon. IMO, If you suddenly have a loss of smell or taste, call your doctor and consider every precautionary measure you can take.

A look at Micro droplets suspended in air. A must watch video if you want to see how easily this can transfer from one person to the other.
Has a good view of how just talking will spread droplets through the air and how they linger through the air.

TB vaccines help against covid? Hopefully we'll see stats soon from Africa, S. America, and India - places where you'd expect to see massive casualties, but many of these places have universal TB vaccinations...

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

o
Unless these are like 4 week cruises, I mean, WTF? Should anyone that got on a cruise ship after the first week of March be given any special consideration whatsoever?

Remember there are hundreds of cruise ships cycling all the time. The main ships are never idle unless in refurb. The ships that are out there mostly did leave right before the shit hit the fan. Some of these were cruises that were supposed to be 2 weeks... trips all the way down south america etc.

Don’t forget how quickly this situation escalated in the US... days.

That was an old story... basically boilerroom talking points on their sales agents in one call center. It was from the start of the crisis before the shutdowns were starting.

Ok, but critically speaking, why bail out a floating party, with a third world flag, when parties on land can easily replace them? Seriously, the cruise ship industry is really, really low on any list of priorities here. Feel free to debate otherwise.

There is so much going on in this.

Total discipline and also you know the lady had to be expecting it. So many countries are taking this way more serious than here.

Could you imagine how many Americans would try to sue? The person with the spray is doing them a favor, because he could technically sue her for attempted murder, if this had taken place in the US.

I think in the coming years, it will become a thing where people will now consider coughs or sneezes as attempted murder.

I just found it interesting.

I think you mean his ex-wife who took the kids to their "cottage". I think the 7 figure buy off of that under-age fling he had in BC is coming home to roost.

Quoted from cait001:

It seems like these should be charted based on the population size. The maximum death day will likely be much higher in the US than Italy because there are so many more people in the country (US has 6 times more population than Italy). Our chart will start to plateau as soon as the social distancing takes effect which is after the pre-social distancing infected people die or recover or at least get half way through that process.

Also, it does not help that the most populated countries such as China and India have fudged their numbers. The US does not really have any other country to compare to on the chart to do a direct comparison because of the population size and not having valid data for other comparable population sized countries. We are only left to extrapolate what we can from smaller countries with lesser medical systems and different aged populations.

#7080 9 months ago

Ive decided on this dual purpose Coronavirus protective gear. Helps protect against airborne virus and pretty much guarantees that others will comply with social distancing. Going to wear it next time I have to go to the grocery store.

This has been discussed earlier in the thread. There isn't a use in having the data per capita as per the type of data were studying. The explanation was from the data scientist who does the charts.

#7083 9 months ago

I know someone who is slowly recovering from Covid, and they said they lost smell and taste early. They are just now starting to get it back. I believe it is a very early warning sign that a person has it.

And the US hasn't? Our numbers aren't even close to being accurate, we have way more cases than are being reported. South Korea and Germany are like the only major countries with accurate testing.

We're going to be over a million by the end of April. Regardless of how you want to graph it or spin it, we've handled it very poorly. Like all aspects, testing, shutting things down too late, ignoring the problem, not enough supplies, etc. And the worst part is about those issues is, despite being issues for a month, they're still just as big of problems now, like we've solved nothing.

Our current plan is:

1) Social distancing
2) ?????
3) virus gone

That didn't work so good for the underpants gnomes either.

Yeah tired of hearing about our awesome, accurate, sweeping testing and rock solid honesty in all things counting Covid in the U.S. in comparison to those sneaky little devils in other countries who are totally fudging the numbers.

I know - personally - at least 5 people who probably have/had it, and never got tested. There's probably tens of thousands of people like that.

I agree the numbers are fudged. Why are you saying that people you know had it(with no test)? Talk like that brings on burn the witch! Pitch fork and flames.

False. There IS a use and value in that type of data. Any and all data is important when evaluating anything...the more information the better.

There is a MAJOR difference between inaccurate numbers due to the amount of testing performed and “fudging” numbers. Inaccurate numbers can be a result of things such as inadequate testing, asymptomatic cases, those that had minor symptoms and never got medical attention, or those that already had the virus before testing began. “Fudging” numbers is knowingly being deceitful for many of various possible ulterior motives.

My Smoke Vault is a damn nice smoker. My father in law gave me a masterbuilt and it doesn’t compare. I added the steel braided hose and a needle valve to the Smoke Fault. It’s an awesome smoker. I’ll probably sell the masterbuilt...

And at this rate the US will hit 1 million infections in less than two weeks time. Which is roughly the apex for North America. The next few weeks will be nerve racking. Canada is not fairing much better right now and we are consistent with your infection curve (on a smaller scale).

This site uses the John Hopkins dataset and plots it in a way where you can compare each state vs. any other subset of states. (So MN vs. TX, MN vs. All, etc. )

Also has some global data. Both log and linear scale.
