    Itís not underfunding of the NHS thatís the real problem, itís the mismanagement of the budget spend by the inefficient bureaucracy inherent within the NHS system.

    Before you ask me questions, have the courage to answer the simple questions asked of you previously. If you donít, go away and start a website called ďStarting CowardiceĒ - you appear well qualified to lead such an enterprise.

    I think the word nutjob can also be validly applied to an adult who seeks public praise and a medal of honour for extending basic kindness to their mother which you sought in a previous post.

    Let's assume he's correct, and that there are severe flaws in testing methodology, and that there is no pandemic.

    How does that fit with the fact that there are spikes in severe pneumonia around the world occurring within the same time period?

    Some interesting observations from the past couple of days:

    As with many states, mine has been inundated with hordes of Californians and New Yorkers seeking to spread their failed culture by force. They are very very vocal in their insistence that we all stay under house arrest and impose stricter measures, constitution be damned. They will threaten you with physical, professional or legal harm if you disagree.

    Others in the state are actively disobeying the house arrest orders.

    In a bright spot, I have seen several reports of the local police refusing to enforce the mayor's unconstitutional house arrest orders.


    In general half of the population seems eager to enslave the other half. This is what happens when 51% gets to decide it's OK to oppress or steal from 49%. I believe it is called the socialist spiral of slavery; or as the communists call it: the will of the people.

    So when will the Starting Strength gyms open their doors in direct opposition to any of these 'directed health measures'? Rip, what is your tipping point?

    I am the owner of WFAC. I do not own Starting Strength Gyms or any Starting Strength Gym. Unlike the various governments involved, I have no control over anything I do not own.

    Fair enough...what is the status of WFAC?

    Have to wonder if this might explain some of the early reports that certain blood types were far more likely to survive. Also might explain some of the anecdotal reports of people who engage in intense aerobic exercise getting especially sick, and of patients suddenly going hypoxic in the waiting room.
    Another bit of evidence that COVID-19 is more of a cardiovascular disease than a respiratory one.

    In the past few days, both Italian and American doctors observed that, despite very low blood oxygen saturation, lung mechanics (i.e. lung gas volume) remain intact. COVID-19 patients do not really have ARDS; the typical use of a ventilator, at high pressure, is probably iatrogenic. This makes the "early vent" strategy look pretty bad.

    (This illustrates how a poorly-understood disease has greater potential to overwhelm than a relatively well-understood one.)

    Rip,

    I just received this from a friend:

    My company closed down the physical office two weeks ago and laid off or furloughed 90% of company. We had 128 highly compensated employees, mostly programmers. I'm one of 14 left that is still employed but working remotely. In the meeting of everyone who was left, they said they don't think they'll ever open the office again. WHICH MEANS - I am now free to work from anywhere!

    I think there is a very important, not so obvious, lesson here:

    How long will it be before everyone else starts wondering why they are spending so much time on the freeway commuting to work? How long will it take to realize they don't like the boss breathing down their neck all day long? How long before they realize they can have two computers on at the same time at their home office desk...one with SS videos (or Facebook)?

    Considering the above--how long will commercial real estate survive?

    I think commercial real estate is in a death spiral and is about to sink lower than whale dung.

    You are more involved in the commercial real estate world than I am...what are you thinking about all this?

    Maybe you could do a Mandatory ďbuy backĒ too?
