Hoax or Real? Please, let's have a civil and courteous discussion.
POLL: Just the Flu or This shit is Scary?
 It's just a flu. That's all.
 It may be a bit worse than the flu, but All is fine.
 This is a lot worse than the normal flu!

If you've seen any of my threads over the past weeks here, you probably know that I'm on the "it's real doom" side of his discussion. Put that aside for a moment.

After watching the Project Veritas, O'keefe video from another thread, I really have to wonder what the fuck is going on...

I've always been the kind of guy that thinks "by their deeds, you shall know them..." So, when the guy in the video, with a full hazmat suit on is saying, nothing to see here, just the normal flu, my logic says, WTF!?!?!?!

So, yeah, my mind was already set, and you could easily say, confirmation bias. OK, yes... But, I'd like to discuss and get some rational opinions. I know it's close to impossible, here on GLP, but lets try to have an adult, courteous discussion about COVID19.


Thanks for taking part and and stay safe... hf cheers

You're only going to get the same split as always.

My wife works in the NHS and was tested today, she gets a result tomorrow.

As far as I can see its real but the extent is still to be determined.

I've got no idea. 1dunno1

But I have to say most evidence seem to point at the whole
thing being about the counter measures - not the virus itself.

What I do know for a fact, is that real trouble starts tomorrow,
for a whole lot of people of the underclass.

To borrow the phrase from the earlier debate: "Just give it a
couple of weeks" and people will start dying from the non-
medically related effects of the p(l)andemic.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78356839


Mr Trump's behaviour is a total enigma.

scratching

He seemed very confident, when he initially talked
about it being nothing and "going to disappear".

Then he started to look like someone who knows it's all
baloney, but is forced by circumstances to play along.

And then todays press conference...I'm clueless, again.

1dunno1

Any which way - people accepting total Police State without
asking questions is way more goddamn disturbing than any plague, imho.

No way in hell things ever go back to the way they were,
experience says.

This is a diversion!!

A meteor hit in Nigeria March 26 if that had hit New York there would of been a lot of deaths. The meteor still destroyed 100 buildings and created a large crater. If there are more fragments coming the best thing to do would be to program people to stay home and stock up on supplies. A larger fragment could take out the grid then there’s no food coming for months or longer.

Worst case is possible NEO on April 29th. Strange how they extended the shut down till April 30th. Why so many respirators and masks needed? If there is a major impact there would be a lot of debris and noxious gases thrown into the atmosphere.

I don’t post often so I don’t know how to attach links but if your interested check NASA web site for exercise last year. It specifically mentions these dates and scenarios.

Coincidence maybe maybe not.

thanks. obviously, i've been watching the numbers too. we're on track for doubling the rate of dead in less than 6 days at this rate. we hit 32,000 on the 29th of march and are on track to hit 64,000 on by april 3rd, if not sooner. so from my perspective, the exponential growth is accelerating.

with that said, that would be expected with the entirety of the USA now in the midst of this. i'm still hopeful that the social distancing, quarantines, and potentially new cures, we might be able to turn this around.

stay safe. cheers

Thanks for starting a discussion on this without all the back-and-forth arguing and political party distractions.

I, and no one else, don't know for sure what is real or fake any longer. Everything is so clouded with false data, fake information, possibly doctored photos and videos...it's just impossible to know and the ones in the "know" aren't permitted and/or willing to tell.

However, I do know that at the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is we cannot be a united while being divided on personal levels. Fighting within our homes, communities, towns, states, nations, etc. It's not getting anybody anywhere in the big scheme of things.

I really wish people could focus on how to open the lines of communication for real dialogue, problem solving and healing. I'm afraid I won't see that in my lifetime and my descendants probably won't get to experience it either.

I hope your thread gets as much attention and responses as the ones with everybody arguing ad nauseum.

ok, i would add that option now if i could...
that was supposed to be the "it's just the flu" option.

so, if so, why?

and, before you say, to get trump, realize there are many countries that don't care about if trump will be here for another 4 years or not. i personally, will vote for him again.

but, if it's a hoax, there has to be a better reason, as far as i can see.

Re: Hoax or Real? Please, let's have a civil and courteous discussion.
Here to repeat for the hundredth time that I had covid and got over it already. It wasn't a big deal for me, but after having first hand experience with it I can see how it kills people and how it's going to wind up being a bad time as the infection continues to spread.

So, that random national guard guy is just saying what he knows. He's not wrong, its mortality is probably equivalent to the flu, though it feels and acts very differently from one. But it's a "flu" that's going to infect just about everyone and probably hasn't even reached 3 million people globally yet by my very unscientific estimations.

Thanks to social distancing the spread is certainly slowed, but it's not going to stop. It's going to burn for many more months to come, killing a small percent of those it touches, one by one. That hazmat suit guy will probably change his tune once this reality has really set in.

[x] It's a real hoax
 Quoting: Yo Adrian


ok, i would add that option now if i could...
that was supposed to be the "it's just the flu" option.

so, if so, why?

and, before you say, to get trump, realize there are many countries that don't care about if trump will be here for another 4 years or not. i personally, will vote for him again.

but, if it's a hoax, there has to be a better reason, as far as i can see.

thanks cheers

If you truly want to know the truth the truth will find you when you have opened the door to let the truth in.

They are ramping up production of body bags.

Body bags made of plastic and canvas.

So are fake bodies.

They are fairly heavy too so they even FLOP realistically.

Factories are flat out.

Soon you will see ten people in a bed in a room for hundreds.

But the room will be full.

Only ten of the peaple are real.

Placed closer to the camera to move and whatnot.

No one will focus on the background.

And then comes time to "load the bodies" into them trucks.

Like I said...they are heavy enough to pass as corpses.

So as they lift them you will see strain.

And thats all the convincing the flouridites need really.

Anyone see the movie "saving private ryan?

Remember all them "bodies" littering the beach after the main doom scene was over?

All of them were BODY DUMMIES.

And hollywood is NOT using them right now.

So...who IS?

So next time you see "bodies" lying around or being loaded into trucks..

Keep this in mind...

I was noticeably sick with it for about 3 weeks, from the end of February to the middle of March. The same symptoms you hear from everyone else that didn't get fucked over by it. Fever and chills, pain/tightness in chest with shortness of breath, sensitivity to light (i don't think you hear this one too much but it was really standout for me compared to how minor most of the symptoms are), erratic blood pressure, and low O2 levels.

Only feared for my health a few times, the most alarming moment was when I almost collapsed due to a combination of extremely low blood pressure and the reduced O2 levels. Never had an experience like that before and it was scary, but it was brief. That happened at the start of the third week. By the end of the third week the fevers and chills had completely gone, the light sensitivity had reduced, the chest pain was still bad but had clearly started to reverse.

So, long story short: Not the flu. Very different, in fact. Not really any worse either, though. Again, the real danger to this virus lies in how contagious it is. If you take the flu statistics for any year and scale them up to the hundreds of millions or billions, those death numbers are sobering.
