Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
that doesn't explain the excess deaths worldwide very well. i do know ppl who didn't believe covid much but got sick. they'll tell u it wasn't just a cold.

covid ain't killing many immediately. but the damage to internal organs is killing many slowly.

even the mutations that the vax is causing won't just stay in the vaxed population,. they will mutate more to infect others too.

As of yesterday, I know 3 more people with COVID. Thus far, nasty cold symptoms, but they are all young and healthy.
 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith

It's been increasing among our circle of family and friends as well, same as you describe it. Mostly nasty cold symptoms.

There's a part of me that wants to believe this virus is going to mutate itself down to where it's manageable like the Spanish Flu did, but I just can't forget that this thing escaped from a level 4 biolab and showed indications of genetic manipulation. That's why I'm not letting my guard down just yet. We'll see what happens over the next 18 months or so and then I might start to relax.

If we're still here, that is.
 Quoting: Riff-Raff


I remember back in the day, when 'nasty cold symptoms' were simply just a 'cold'.

The only thing that escaped from the lab in China was media driven fear.
 Quoting: Reebl


COVID is definitely real.

What I find curious is why it is just an obnoxious cold for some, but death for others. It killed 2 of my friends last year who were fit and healthy. One lived in a small town, other in a very rural area. So, no exposure to crowds and such.

I know several, in spite of being careful, have had multiple infections. Others with repeated exposure, not careful at all, but have not gotten it.

The entire thing makes little sense. No solid recognizable patterns. To me, it is lab cooked. Nothing else makes sense.

RIFF how well does it work for u? i hear those cat's require u to burn super dry wood.
 Quoting: JAZZz50


We've only been able to have one fire in it because it was installed so late last year, but it was amazing. You need dry wood to get it started, but once it reaches its full temperature, anything you throw in there burns regardless. They said I could even burn pine in there if it was fully seasoned, which I probably won't despite their assurances.

But the catalytic combustor is like an afterburner for fireplaces, and bumps the temperature to about 1100 degrees with minimal smoke visible from the outside. We can easily heat our entire house with it. Cleaning the fireplace is a little more involved with the catalytic in it, but it's worth it in my opinion.

 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith


I tend to agree with this. While we can detect patterns in mutation rates and general infection rates, what isn't predictable is how it will affect somebody once they have it. The fact that it can range anywhere from people not catching it at all despite being exposed to heavy viral loads all the way up to death within days for people that are fully vaxxed and boosted makes it a bitch to deal with. And a second infection can affect a person completely differently than their first infection.

I remember clear back in January or February of 2020 the Chinese government was desperately searching for a female technician from the lab in Wuhan. They believed she had gotten infected in the lab and then went to the wet market which is where everything started spreading and going to shit. I also remember that China locked down 11 million people over 300 deaths from the virus very early in the pandemic. That alone told me they knew something about this virus that they weren't sharing with the world. And they still haven't told us the truth on its origins. But the evidence supporting the lab leak theory is pretty heavy. Also, GLP knew about the lab connection long before MSM started asking questions about it.

So, Covid is indeed real. Now, it's fair to debate its origins and what it is exactly, but the virus exists. It completely ignores some people; some people get infected but never know it because they never develop symptoms; some people experience mild symptoms; some people experience severe symptoms, including Long Covid; and some people die. And there is no discernible pattern for who experiences what.

The efficacy of the vaccines is also fair to debate. I waited a full year before getting my first shot, and I've had three boosters since then. I still got infected two weeks ago. Symptoms were mild, like a sinus infection, and I've completely recovered. My wife also got infected two weeks ago (by me), but her symptoms were more like bronchitis, and she has fully recovered. So, did the vaccine have any impact on our symptoms? I don't know. But I don't think they made anything worse.

There are valid questions about both the virus and the vaccines that need to be answered, but most of what is posted on GLP regarding them, like the conspiracy theories about the vaccines and 5G, is pure bullshit.

interesting, ROB from "little house off grid" has done several videos on this. he says wood has to be below 20% moisture. more than that and it is hard to light and maintain a fire. so wood has to b seasoned a lot longer.

he had issues the 1st winter after moving into the tiny house. his glass broke 1 day, think from over tightening it.u may want to have a backup glass just in case.

I agree LJS.
Given my infection and current living arrangement I have no idea how I got it so easily yet those around me did not.

It’s almost as if one has to be primed to receive it and for it to be primed to be received.

It makes no sense that something so infectious does not attach itself to an entire group.

Also agree with you on the severity and outcome. Only thing I can say is that it will exploit whatever weakness it finds. So perhaps those you knew that were healthy may have had something unknown that the virus found. Sorry you have lost so many.

Guythu, I still maintain that 25 years from now they will discover that susceptibility to Covid is dependent on a specific gene sequence that is completely random and unrelated to anything else.

That's not to say that I think this virus was created to target a specific human genome. I just think that's how it works.

Mystery 'tomato flu' outbreak sparks panic as children suffer 'monkeypox-like' symptoms

HEALTH authorities in India are on high alert after a mysterious illness has broken out with symptoms similar to monkeypox.
...
... Similar to the monkeypox virus, infected children are observing symptoms like the appearance of large rashes on the whole body, in the form of round and red blisters which are extremely painful and contagious.
...
So far, there have been no reported deaths from this virus.

However, doctors have so far not discovered a specific treatment for this illness and are currently only tackling the symptoms of the flu.

man in TX went to the hospital after garbage bag melted to his skin. was trying to avoid the pox.

so they don't sound racist, MP will b named GATOR pox and blamed on FL to make sure their governor doesn't beat JB next election.

due to the badd parents being upset and posting online, the President ordered all schools to have DC styled fencing. the parents demand their children b allowed to come home. students are all under 3 week quarantines for the pox.as cases continue to surge, the isolation has stretched into summer vacations across the country.

remember the screw up of the Obama Healthcare bill with the system crashed? this tops it. the way the bill was written- all hospitals with a case of MP had to self quarantine. this ment the whole staff and building. this led to ambulances having no where to take any patients. the med workers who had the day off when the bill was passed are wondering if they will b paid since they can not go to work. what a mess.

due to MEXICAN workers getting infected, CA has stopped ALL food shipments out of the state. what's for dinner? nobody knows.

the CDC is still undecided bout who their mascot will b. gators don't wear masks well with their long snouts.

COVID is definitely real.

What I find curious is why it is just an obnoxious cold for some, but death for others. It killed 2 of my friends last year who were fit and healthy. One lived in a small town, other in a very rural area. So, no exposure to crowds and such.

I know several, in spite of being careful, have had multiple infections. Others with repeated exposure, not careful at all, but have not gotten it.

Good job, OP. No AC is a great start to any discussion.

Block AC viewing as well.

As of yesterday, I know 3 more people with COVID. Thus far, nasty cold symptoms, but they are all young and healthy.

I agree LJS.
Given my infection and current living arrangement I have no idea how I got it so easily yet those around me did not.

It’s almost as if one has to be primed to receive it and for it to be primed to be received.

It makes no sense that something so infectious does not attach itself to an entire group.

Also agree with you on the severity and outcome. Only thing I can say is that it will exploit whatever weakness it finds. So perhaps those you knew that were healthy may have had something unknown that the virus found. Sorry you have lost so many.
 Quoting: Guythu


Guythu, I still maintain that 25 years from now they will discover that susceptibility to Covid is dependent on a specific gene sequence that is completely random and unrelated to anything else. I think some people are genetically immune to it and some people are genetically susceptible to it. Severity of infection might also be decided genetically.

That's not to say that I think this virus was created to target a specific human genome. I just think that's how it works.
 Quoting: Riff-Raff


Could explain why several of my half siblings, and their children, have caught it, but I have not, nor have my children.

I have no full siblings.

Could be like the whole Black Plague thing. There is a specific gene that 10% or so of Europeans have that makes them immune to HIV. They are decedents of people who survived the Plague.

Possibly the same type of thing?
 Quoting: SpinalCracker


Correct. I think that susceptibility to severe COVID is due to certain blood types. If I recall correctly, there was a study about people with type A blood that had it worse. Someone can correct me on that, though.

I've been binging Mercy Me lately. I didn't pay too much attention to them when my kids played their CD's over and over again, back in the day, but they just make me smile these days.

I'm glad you liked it.
