    By contrast, coronavirus killed more than 62,850 people in the US from the first known death in February through the end of April.
    So from February 6 through April 30, an average of more than 739 people died per day from coronavirus in the US."
    It is very interesting. But is it useful? It can be for the media and the various governments, who desperately need to keep us all very afraid of this disease. First, look at the numbers from the NYC Health Department, from the "hotbed" of the virus in the US:

    Now, the media:

    THE FUCKING WORLD IS ON A FUCKING KNIFE EDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe it would have been four times as deadly (twice again) if we just went about our lives. Maybe even eight times.

    In your opinion Shea, was it worth destroying the economy of the whole world?

    It's about 6x as deadly overall.

    In other words these numbers are EXACTLY like 2018 for respiratory diseases

    Rip, we like you. You’re worth at least 1200 jobs. More, if we get to pick who loses them. Way more.

    If 62,000 people died from the flu between October 1 and April 4, that means the US had an average of about 331 flu deaths a day.

    So from February 6 through April 30, an average of more than 739 people died per day from coronavirus in the US.
    How many of those deaths post April 4 would have been recorded as flu deaths in lieu of the current crisis?

    I am not a perfect person. I have many flaws, I think the dark triad of narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy was a blueprint for my entire being. But this does not change the fact that the very foundation of my being knows what is coming by this state by state narcissism. Interestingly enough, 5 million of my ancestors, 2 million roma gypsies, and 3 million polish nationals were murdered in the Holocaust. To add insult to insult, Soviet socialism took the opportunity to overthrow and take over these countries after world war 2. To date, my great grandmother will still murder a communist in cold blood just on principle.

    You faggots who think that this is a mathematics game have no idea what is in store for you. What makes it even more repulsive is my grandfather from northeastern America liberated Jewish prisoners from concentration camps and this is how (they) repay us. He even spared the German guards of the camp. Additionally all my ancestors have emigrated to America post 1920 so we have never held slaves. If these woke motherfuckers actually care, why am I not a protected citizen? But the fact of the matter is that all this mathematical learned ignorance is a cover for fuckheads who want to enforce a new world slavery order and they believe that everyone who dies adds to their spiritual power. It is no longer a question of what is right, but what is might. The only miscalculation is that I am the baddest motherfucker ever to walk the planet and that if you fuck with Mark Rippetoe hell is the least of your worries, there will be a whirlwind to reap and you will not enjoy the consequences.

    I will double-down on the fact that you made the wrong choice and overstepped your bounds and heads on a stake won't even make me bat an eye. You started this shit, and you're afraid to finish it...... Not my problem in the famous words of Communists. You fuck with the gypsies and we are going to remove your soul from your being without a second glance

    These are videos of hype for real men

    “Like” is a strong word.

I didn't want anyone to accuse me of blindly accepting information from a single source without checking other sources as well.

    Flu deaths vs. coronavirus deaths: These reasons show why Covid-19 can be more dangerous than the flu - CNN

    You’re missing the part where people are dying from fucking anything and it’s been coded as a covid-19 death on a massive scale.
