Enough of your goofy diversion tactics. Did you even watch Dr. Drew's interview with Dr. Vladamir Zelenko?
I watched it, he basically whined about the medical community not taking anecdotal evidence (presumably his) seriously enough.
Apparently he submitted a study on July 3 on his hydroxy claims for peer review so there is and should be more feedback on whether his claims may have some merit. https://www.preprints.org/manuscript/202007.0025/v1
An example of one of the comments about his study:
Received: 23 July 2020
Commenter: Ken Madden, M.D., Ph.D.
The commenter has declared there is no conflict of interests.
Comment: Unfortunately, the lack of information on the comparison population greatly weakens any statements regarding efficacy of the proposed treatment. There are many potential reasons for differences in hospitalizations and mortality between treated patients and an unmatched retrospective comparison group. The treated patients all evidently presented to a Family Physician office. If other patients in the community were presenting to Emergency Rooms or Urgent Care, one would naturally expect sicker patients and a higher percentage of admissions. Others have pointed out the potential higher ages within the comparison group, which would certainly slant that group toward worse outcomes. Other differences in risk factors between groups could do this as well.

Such criticisms do not diminish the possibility of benefit of the proposed treatment, which this report argues is a relatively safe one. However, it should not be considered substantial evidence of such.
It would be great if the hydroxy cocktail actually worked, I'm all for useful treatments for covid. So far the claims of success including Zelenko's claim seem to all include a caveat that they don't work on people with serious, advanced symptoms but work great on people that aren't that sick. If the ones that don't show a positive result are erased from the study as being too far advanced in their illness for the treatment to work that is cherry picking results and is dishonest methodology.
There is no way to tell whether those people would have got better without the treatment unless you conduct large scale tests using rigorous methodology. Further, you would need to test to see whether zinc alone, zepac alone or zinc and zepac together worked as well or better than with hydroxy. If I remember correctly, and that may be as unreliable or worse than the average anecdote, one preliminary small study had the cocktail with poorer outcomes, than no treatment, and zinc alone as slightly better than no treatment.
As for my "goofy diversion tactics". If someone is frequently wrong, has a history of dishonesty, or is an attention whore that runs sensationalist pseudo therapeutic reality show like "Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew" or "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew" I consider it as a red flag for their reliability and a good reason to question their claims.
Here are a couple of studies from back in the day before HCQ & Zinc et. al. was deamonized (sic) as "dangerous" & "uproven" & "unsafe" (add whatever big pharma denigration you care to for great justice)

From 2005 Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread

From 2010 Zn2+ Inhibits Coronavirus and Arterivirus RNA Polymerase Activity In Vitro and Zinc Ionophores Block the Replication of These Viruses in Cell Culture

So when some tried using it (with zinc) early on patients suffering from the Wuhan Flu (or COVID 19 if you are a ignorant idjit) they reported good results.

Cue in much weeping wailing & knashing (sic) of teeth and a slew of studies showing that toxic dosages when the patient was already in critical condition was inefefctive and viola!

A cheap drug was in reality the spawn of satan! Take this expensive drug (only $3,000 or so per dose) and STFU and we have this [bogus] study in the Lancet (now retracted because they made up shit out of thin air when they did not pull it out of xir ass) to prove that getting any where close to the spawn of satan meant your gonna die a horrific death.

Personally, I blame Trump Derangement Syndrome.

YMMV

Yep - I know that Trumpo's team will be loving this - laughing about putting people inside for weed, then laughing about using it; fixing evidence to get people put inside/stay inside. There will be an endless stream of shit flung at her, and you can expect the Tulsi clip to be shown forever.

This is enough to make you want Dopey Joe kept alive if the Dems win. Though she'll be running the show anyway.

Still surprised. Guess Biden's nurses are figuring that Orange Man Bad is sufficient to keep the base agitated and voting.
Kamala dropped out of the primaries after her polling sunk to 2%, and her campaign simultaneously ran out of money and fell apart at the seams over internal acrimony. She viciously ambushed Biden in a debate, only to have her legs blown off by Tulsi's Tellermine. But most of all, Kamala is one of the nastiest,vilest excuses for a human on the planet. People sense that.

Also, while Kamala is mocha-skinned, she's not African-American. Capital 'B' Blacks don't accept her as one of their own. A chocolate-easter-bunny-dark woman like Val Demings or Stacey M1 Abrams might have motivated black voters, but not this Jamaican/Punjab, quebec-montessori-attending, Eikk-marrying, blunt-smoker-busting fraud.

Susan Rice is corrupt and ruthless, but aside from the Benghazi B.S., which doesn't register on most voters' radar, she was a non-entity. Biden is nominally ahead in the polls right now by remaining a non-entity and forcing Trump to run against Trump. Now Trump can run against a nasty bitch who cackles are her own obtuse jokes. It's the next best thing to having Hillary back.

It ain't sufficient - there are a few things (UBI, Medicare expansion, etc.) any one of which will sink Dopey Joe if done at the right time (i.e without sufficien time for the Dems to counter). TDS is strong with them, but they still don't care if it's Trumpo or Dopey Joe. As long as the Kleptocracy stays in control.

None of this should be a surprise to anyone. It was obvious that there was a lot of crazy shit going on. My prediction from trial.....

Prepare for a new spectacle of riots. :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:
I pretty much agree, but I don't know what the fall back charges they could be convicted of would be. There is no evidence of any malice in the communications among the police, they realize he's having a medical episode and, at least by their communications, are genuinely trying to do what's in his best interest while waiting for paramedics. Unfortunately, instead of the 'excited delirium' they assume it to be, it's a fentanyl overdose with its attendant breathing problems. Most likely, it was the pressure on his torso rather than the famous knee on his neck that did the most to facilitate his death. I don't know if any reasonably objective juror can equate this kind of misdiagnosis by police officers to the depraved indifference to life generally required for manslaughter. But I don't expect this jury to be chosen based on its objectivity.

I can't blame them, only the lame excuses for schools they went to.
I agree, but it's because people are idiots that I would want to keep public health advice as simple and evidence-based as possible. Social distancing, isolation when exhibiting flu-like symptoms, and frequent hand washing/sanitization give nearly all the protection it's possible to get short of hazmat suits, and are completely proven and non-controversial. For the general public, masks in general provide at best a tiny extra benefit at the margin while potentially screwing with the basics by making people feel more secure and compromising social distancing and hand washing. And if they're re-using surgical masks, or not washing fabric masks every day or not being extremely careful not to touch the surface of the mask when taking it off, they're almost certainly making things worse. Much better to keep things simple, and get 99% of the potential benefit with a regimen even idiots can stick to, than try for that potential tiny gain, complicate the situation and rely on idiots not to mess things up. This is the primary stated reason why Scandinavia's public health authorities oppose general mask recommendations.

Speaking of which, I wonder what it is about Scandinavia, a region that I generally prefer Canada and the US not emulate, that makes their public health authorities respect the current state of epidemiological science and its uncertainties without papering over the uncertainties with extreme negativity bias, and most importantly not cave to political pressure.

It's almost as if we are dealing globally with an emerging issue of some complexity. That is, there are no simple answers or unchanging answers over time as more information comes in, and anyone who promises there are should be tarred, feathered, and run out of town.

4) The CDC sets safety standards so high that no US schools can open. The American Pediatrics Association says schools should be opened even if they can't be perfectly safe. School administrators will not open any school if there is any risk at all.

and you are picking on Americans for saying fuck it? Come on MAN!

Who should you look to for leadership after I'm gone -- Did Ed see himself as a leader?

Caustic, mean-spirited, pompous blowhard who injected leftwing politics into secularism at every opportunity; will not be missed.

Regardless. Where Ed leads PZ should follow ...

My definition of 'PsyOps' is loose. Includes Saul Alinsky tactics, for example.

I had an unsettling experience, a few days ago. My brother & I rarely speak to each other. We talked on the phone. Conversation shifted to facemasks. He has a PhD in archeology & is fine with his university's mask rules... masks all the time everywhere on campus... even outdoors... even if no one is within 50 feet. His university is in a high-altitude dry desert, hot year-round, with plenty of space. Even on his archeology digs-- students will social distance and wear masks at all times. Seems excessive to me.

Over the years-- he has been kicked-hard by the university bureaucrats-- but he completely trusts their wisdom in this policy. Is hostile to my skepticism..

Then we talked-about his son's kindergarten's rules.

I said children aren't at much risk. He said I should look up the 85 infants "on respirators" in Nueces County, Texas.

I already knew about that-- it's fake news.

viewtopic.php?f=31&t=553&p=497317&hilit=nueces#p497317

He became exasperated with me. More-so for being right, than if I had been wrong. We probably won't talk again for quite a while.

Conflicts like this gnaw at me-- but I shake-it-off more easily than he does. He's more prone to high-bloodpressure anger & grudges. I think back to a formative time when I walked away from our parents' bullshit-- was free but outcast. He compromised & salvaged their relationship-- but at a cost to his mental autonomy. I'm cooler & more distant-- he takes things personally, gets tangled-up.

I hate that we live in a time of psyops-- designed to exploit & heighten the differences between people-like-him & people-like-me. Divide us, to amass power & control.

In other fake-indian news, it has been 84 weeks since Snopes said it was "Unproven" that Nathan Phillips claimed to have served in Vietnam as a "recon ranger" "in theater", only to be called a "baby killer" and be "spit on" when he returned home.

Snopes's fact-check still stands:

So does the video of Nathan Philips saying that shit:

BethAnn McLaughlin has been in the news previously for #MeToo & tenure denial shenanigans.

:popcorn:

PS Haven't posted for a while. Glad to see the 'Pit is still active. What's been happening?
She stated: “I apologize without reservation to all the people I hurt.”

If I was apologizing for being a fake Indian, I wouldn’t use the phrase “without reservation”.
The important thing is she apologized. Now it's time to bury the hatchet.
