    The problem, as I see it, is that people won't think that hard. The powers that be are training them to accept more and more invasion into their lives and even worse to police the rest of us who don't want to accept that invasion. I fear the ticket-able offense will easily advance from not wearing a mask to talking smack about masks and encouraging others not to wear them. All they have to do is bullshit the majority into thinking masks are The Answer.

    Medicine’s Uncomfortable Relationship With Math: Calculating
    Positive Predictive Value

    How dare you question our medical professionals and politicians!

    75% of medical students, residents and attending physicians (mostly from top institutions like Harvard) were unable to correctly use basic statistics.... the same type of math that is needed to correctly interpret WuHan Flu test results.

    How many of our politicians would get this answer correct? How many of our health advisers? City council? Police officers? How about Fauci?

    The initial take was actually "masks don't do anything unless you're in a highly controlled environment like a hospital, so don't stockpile them and deprive our nurses and doctors of PPE." It's like these morons have never been in any type leadership role in their lives.

    Doing an about-face like they did on the masks is a great way to lose the trust of every single person worth a damn.

    I share these concerns. This is one reason to support legal defense funds of those that are willing to challenge authority early. Don’t wait until the fight comes to your shores, support those that are on your side and the side of liberty.

    The job description of a clinician is very different from that of a public health official, and it is not surprising (though disappointing) that a sample of clinicians struggle to calculate a PPV. It’s not something that is of much use when you are taking care of sick people, so even though you learned it in medical school, it falls away with disuse, like many skills.

    Quite understandable. And it wouldn't make any difference if so many of them didn't hold forth about such things with absolute confidence.

    Doctors need a couple classes in how the world really works so they can protect their patients from it.
