I watched part of your broadcast. I almost said "Greetings from the pyt!" But then I thought that was probably a bad idea... haha. I was only disappointed that your lead singer was not really Jack Black.... I thought it was Jack Black!

Started thinkin bout quantum leap the other day. Told my service dog already.


I think FtB / keyboard SJW mindset is like the plot of quantum leap. Always striving to set right what once went wrong.




But somehow they always find an excuse to do SJW shit or wear a dress.

... you aren't a very careful reader or because you are just a hot headed cunt that decides that someone that doesn't immediately agree with you must be an SJW or a marxist.
:think:

Fuck you, you MAGA hat wearing Qanon dumbass. Your mother probably fucks your horses.
Meh. PA always did it much more panache. And Cunt was an artist.

The point that I have disagreed with from the start is the claim that the virus was created in the lab as a biological agent instead of it developing from zoonotic sources.
Yes, and you bashed that strawman for weeks when the rest of us were focusing on an accidental release from a legit scientific sample.
I am putting forth the theory that covid19 could have been circulating in the countryside for some time and was brought into Wuhan from a traveller from an infected region.
That's plausible, but purely suppositive. The explanation that most parsimoniously incorporates all the mounting evidence, is an accidental leak from the Wuhan lab. Yet for some reason, you still cling to the 'somehow somebody musta brought it from somewhere at some point' theory.
You claim to know that the CCP knew the origin and apparently patient zero. That coould be correct but I don't take it as a reliable fact partly because there are so many "facts" floating around and there is little way to reliably corroborate them.
My strong assumption is that the Chinese gov't knows the true origin. The facts aren't 'floating around'; they've been suppressed or destroyed by the CCP, while anyone from the West interested in uncovering them -- journalists, CDC experts, et al. -- have been expelled from or denied entry into China. That might mean they don't know it came from the lab but only fear it being so. But as Jugheadnaut pointed out, it's not unreasonable to presume the worst in the motives and actions of a paranoid, totalitarian regime like the PCC.

Mrs Screwtape was in Kenya in February and early March (made it home just in time), and got caught up in the riots and roadblocks over Chinese workers being flown in en masse for work on the Mombasa railway. A few bribes and the workers were being let in with no passport checks and no health screening, despite it being obvious what was coming from China. That's the way they do things. All people, and especially foreigners, are an expendable resource that is there to be used to further their economic and political goals.
'Rape' is not too strong a word to describe what China has done to Africa the past decade or so.

It's only rape when white colonialists do it. African pimp governments held down their people and helped lift their skirts in return for some cash and a chance to stick it to imperialist whitey. Maybe I'm being too harsh, what else is a government to do after they've plundered the nation's coffers dry and someone comes along with a wad of cash in hand? Citizens Pension funds aren't inexhaustable after all.

Matt quoted you, and when I tried to quote him quoting you it fucked up, so I screengrabbed instead.

He accused you of strawmanning, but if anything I would say you were ad homineming.

I believe my arguments were strawmanned, while I personally was misrepresented. But I'll get over it.

As I see it, no ad hominems were perpetrated.

Funny you should say that, I've had similar thoughts about them (and other groups) for a while. "Baroque" being my word of choice.

NS now has seven dead of Covid-19, and 13 dead today at the hands of a crazed denturist.

I've never met a denturist who was entirely right in the head, FWIW.

The white paper makes scant mention of the global shutdown, and the shutdown doesn't contribute to the estimates it gives. I fail to see why, in a Tweet where Lomborg is merely sharing and quoting from the paper without elaboration, he should be acknowledging something that's not in the paper. The paper discusses issues related to the estimation of IFR (which is a useful statistic, but not directly measurable) from CFR (which is a directly measurable statistic, but not particularly useful due to sample bias).

The main purpose of the shutdown is to reduce the rate of infections, not reduce IFR. IFR is largely independent of these efforts, except that reducing the rate of infections will keep health care systems from going over-capacity and limit deaths due to lack of medical intervention.

What he said.
Lomborg is a trickster who likes to use numbers to keep himself at the centre of attention and push whatever POV keeps the funding coming.

What fucknuts doesn't acknowledge is the IFR in the absence of doing something.
The white paper makes scant mention of the global shutdown, and the shutdown doesn't contribute to the estimates it gives. I fail to see why, in a Tweet where Lomborg is merely sharing and quoting from the paper without elaboration, he should be acknowledging something that's not in the paper. The paper discusses issues related to the estimation of IFR (which is a useful statistic, but not directly measurable) from CFR (which is a directly measurable statistic, but not particularly useful due to sample bias).

The main purpose of the shutdown is to reduce the rate of infections, not reduce IFR. IFR is largely independent of these efforts, except that reducing the rate of infections will keep health care systems from going over-capacity and limit deaths due to lack of medical intervention.
Wot I meant to say.

Because, as you probably well know, Lomborg sees himself as Loki incarnate, a trickster who likes to use numbers to suggest that actions are overreactions.
I see. So your response had nothing to do with the paper or Lomborg's tweet, it was just a chance to lob a grade school epithet on someone you have a fantasyland opinion of. And doing work to 'suggest that actions are overreactions' (i.e. cost benefit analysis) is crucial when laughable climate alarmism untethered to any scientific underpinnings is routinely proclaimed by activists and signal boosted by credulous media.

I'm sorry, I must have mistaken this site of erudite intellectual discourse for the Slyme Pit.

Yes that is an interesting (non peer reviewed) ongoing analysis of data as it is received. The real population level CFR and IFR won't be known until sometime down the track. At the moment we have a virus that is highly transmissible, with a high proportion of the population that may be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic but still vectors of transmission, and a smaller proportion of the population that are susceptible or highly susceptible.

What was Lomborg's purpose in highlighting "a presumed estimate for COVID-19 IFR somewhere between 0.1% and 0.36%"? I argue that he is being mischievous, hence my reference to the trickster of Norse mythology. He has form in underplaying risk i complex systems in order to promote a contrarian or, contrarily, an establishment status quo, view.

Mine was a tactical observation

Yours was simply extraordinary.
