Jesus Christ. We put in as much as Europe combined, but we're only 60% the size.
Twice as much as China, despite being 20% their size.
Jesus Christ, you read way more into what I was saying than I actually meant.
Well, the choice is water, or fingers.
I prefer no-touch car washes, myself.
And this is why I don't watch anything from Hollyweird anymore.
If you can't be a good example, at least be a cautionary tale.
Warm weather kills virii by making the air inhospitable.
Absolutely could if we came up with some kind of open source distributed self-structuring network whose entire goal is to maintain privacy. Imagine such a service in an apartment complex when you see 500 m SSIDs, for example.
My phone can already make VOIP phone calls. If that distributed service enabled internet connectivity and provided wifi access to user devices it could work quite well.
I was going to disagree with you before, but fair enough.
Nothing you can do as long as telecoms record which cell towers you connect to and what your signal strength was.
Only way to handle this from a privacy perspective is something conceptually like what is done in the Monero cryptocurrency where IDs for phones are distributed, exchanged and randomized between peers. You can track where one ID goes, but it will become lost in the noise and not contain meaningful data.
Alternatively, we the people could demand private, distributed ownership of cell towers, or a service like cell towers.
Civil war, yeah right.
They've already got the wool over 98% of our eyes.
The biggest thing I've learned from this panic is how gullible America is.
Never before has both 1984 and the Matrix seemed more accurate.
I've already said what I think about the "quarantine."
We say it because it's true. He says it because "lol fuck the little people."
DeSantis is showing his true colors.
So... if you have family like that... don't put them at risk?
That shit has nothing to do with our economy and tens of millions young and healthy people working.
Fun fact: 15% home mortgage interest rates suck no matter whether 17 trillion dollars is a lot or a little money.
Another fun fact: home mortgages were 15% in the 1980s.
A third fun fact: fed borrowing $2T overnight will reduce liquidity in the credit market and bring all your variable rate and new fixed rate loans up. Yay!
"Money is the root of all evil" is commie propaganda. It makes perfect sense why he's being downvoted.
Lust for power is the root of all evil, not money.
Money is just the left's convenient scapegoat to obfuscate their search for unadulterated and unbridled power.
I actually believe their death rates, except I believe them to be a clear and indisputable sign of just how bad China's air quality is.
One thing that's clear from this virus is that it kills you if your lungs aren't in perfect condition when you catch it.
But yes, those motherfuckers are most definitely asshoe.
The Diamond Princess cruise ship had a 0.167% death rate despite a 19% infection rate.
Man, it sure is a night and day difference in the opinion on this here vs. Plebbit.
Much better here IMO.
I find it sad that people value their lives over their principles.
Isn't this some existential struggle that humanity has battled with since the dawn of history? Yet here we are, giving it all up for what amounts to comfort.
We claim to be advanced, but clearly not in any way but technologically.
It's disingenuous as fuck.
Sorry, if you drive a car, you're accepting the possibility that you might kill someone.
It's not even that someone might kill you, it's that your "selfish" actions might result in the death of some innocent person.
We already statistically measure deaths in dollars, and on a personal scale.
Joe Schmoe thinks it's very unlikely that he'll kill someone driving, and that chance times the price of that potentially killed person is less than the value he obtains when going through a drive through in the evening to pick up dinner.
He may not now or ever be thinking about that cost, but the same exact logic applies when he gets drunk and has the munchies.
Based on the cruise ship Diamond Princess, 1/6th of 1% died.
Hoooo excellent point. Hadn't even thought about that when I was arguing with people on Plebbit.
Exactly. And based on the cruise ship death numbers, 1/3rd of one dot would drop out...
The cities of Miami and Ft. Lauderdale... (sigh)
