    It didn’t measure the weather; it became the weather – for a few seconds anyway
    Informative article and some humor. That line is hilarious; it made me laugh.

    It will not take longer than three months. One of the major consequences of this whole thing is being hooked on the 24/7 news cycle, which makes you rapidly lose faith in your fellow citizens. Which, I assure you, is completely unwarranted.

    Cringeworthy Study Debunked: There Was No 'Sturgis Superspreader' COVID-19 Event

    In a report titled “IZA DP No. 13670: The Contagion Externality of a Superspreading Event: The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and COVID-19,” claimed that “large crowds, coupled with minimal mask-wearing and social distancing by attendees” turned the rally into a “superspreader” infecting 260,000 people.

    Authors Dhaval M. Dave, Andrew I. Friedson, Drew McNichols, and Joseph J. Sabia concluded that “the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally generated public health costs of approximately $12.2 billion.”

    The public health risks of Sturgis were so rigorously studied by the authors that “no medical journal would touch it,” as bestselling author and public health writer Alex Berenson noted on Tuesday. Instead, the report was posted on the website of the obscure Insitute of Labor Economics, a leftwing German thinktank.
    Fear porn: Tylenol side effect: Acetaminophen may cause people to take greater risks

    This may be the dumbest thing I've ever read.

    “Acetaminophen seems to make people feel less negative emotion when they consider risky activities – they just don’t feel as scared,” explains study co-author Baldwin Way, an associate professor of psychology, in a university release. “With nearly 25 percent of the population in the U.S. taking acetaminophen each week, reduced risk perceptions and increased risk-taking could have important effects on society.”
    Why, whatever in the world could they be referring to?

    Stupidity porn: Hollywood’s transrace hypocrisy | Spectator USA

    Oscars' woke quota will backfire on Hollywood spectacularly

    To boil down the long, complicated new rules: To be eligible for best picture, a film has to check two out of four boxes. One is to represent glorious 21st-century American diversity in its casting (a problem if your movie is set in, say, pretty much any other time and place); another is to have two minorities or women as heads of departments; another is affirmative action in the marketing and distribution departments
    The Academy Awards will be even more exciting than ever.

    Oh shit, I've been taking acetaminophen for this shitty cold I've developed. I need to be careful not to skateboard jump a gorge or something.

    “Causal inference”...by inspecting the magnitude of regression coefficients, of a model which has many more parameters than observations, relative to “controls” very different from the treated population, without any validation on held-out data, nor a shred of humility about methodological limitations, posted to the web with an incendiary abstract.

    You know, par for the course.

    Its about 200,000 right now. It will be around 300,000 for this year I'm sure. That cannot be denied.
    You forgot to mention the 80 million people that died as a result of Europeans stepping foot on the Americas--roughly one fifth of the world's population at the time. This has been denied by the layman, and COVID-19 ought to be as well. It also ought to be easier to do so given that 94 percent of deaths had an average of 2.6 commodities. According to your insightful chart, that puts us between the Korean War and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Gain some perspective.

    How Jared Kushner’s Secret Testing Plan “Went Poof Into Thin Air” | Vanity Fair

    This is full of fear porn, hyperbole, and non-Truthъs, but this line immediately jumped out at me:

    Today, as governors and mayors scramble to stamp out epidemics plaguing their populations, philanthropists at the Rockefeller Foundation are working to fill the void and organize enough testing to bring the nationwide epidemic under control.
    It's like they want the Conspiracy theories to become the most likely explanations for the CoVid madness, trumping simpler motivations like incompetency and the selfish goal of remaining in power: why ELSE would the Rockefellers suddenly get involved??

    Gloves are off down-under. Bracing words.

    I’m hoping the meta analysis is relevant and holds up.

    The point about Zinc is recurring. CNN’s Cooper smeared Lady “voodoo doctor” who said she used the same regime successfully with a few hundred patients. His sanctimonious tongue-clucking dismissal of her was bias-above-all. Which, as a journalist, qualifies as Public Nuisance.
