Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Remember that the virus has mutated. If 100 persons on average spread the disease to 200 other people (without any vaccines), you need just an effective vaccination rate of more than 50%. But if the...

You might get wind mill cancer just by looking at that cartoon.

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I like you Decker, but if you had tortured and killed a COVID-19 patient, you probably would still have done more positive than Tucker Carlson has done.

Re: The General LBGTQ rights (or lack of) thread.

I actually envy people that can go through life like this, just rationalizing things to support their gut feelings.

If this person is ever denied service because he is white or straight or because...

Re: The Official Former President Trump Thread

Even if they didn't, he wouldn't have delivered on it, because he promised a wall free of charge, to be paid for by Mexico.

And no, he didn't mean it in any other way. He thought that, because of...

Incidentally, 'our' CoronaCheck app was launched this week. It generates a QR-code on the screen of your phone when used, or to be honest two: one (presently working) for national use (e.g. concerts)...

To the credit of these anti-vaxers, it's "lo and behold".:p

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

The assertion that three scientists got sick came from an official US fact sheet. I understand that US intelligence is nog infallible, but they should easily find these people if true. It's a limited...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

With regard to DNS sequences, that is basically an intelligent design argument. Intelligent design is not considered to be scientific because it is not falsifiable.

Or it's comparable with the...

Re: The One and Only Global Warming Thread, Part 11 (CO2 Kills 10 Billion People Edition)

I assumed he was trying to make a point by being sarcastic (as in: little distortions in the rotation can have a significant effect and, because we can't change that, why do anything at all).

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

That doesn't make fully sense. That way, it is a virus derived from nature and it then could (and would) have jumped from the bats to humans as well.

You may remember that indeed SARS did at one...

I don't think that is fair. They can solve crimes from 30 years ago with DNA analysis. Just like they can tell you are the son of your father with DNA analysis, even if you have been living in China...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I hate that. Although sometimes people find that I am arguing in a rather combative style, I just like discussing things objectively and in good faith (and in a language which is foreign to me).

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

You are right, but I was talking about some explanation for (just) the increased case numbers.

And the best defence against a new variant is having not too many cases. Every case is like a ticket...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Well, the UK has administered a lot of AstraZeneca shots. And because they chose to go first for a one shot strategy, their protection may be less because of that too.

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Thanks for posting that. You are right about the ratio of people getting their first and second shot.

However, that also has a negative side. It seems from those numbers that the 32 million number...

Re: The One and Only Global Warming Thread, Part 11 (CO2 Kills 10 Billion People Edition)

Although I don't agree with countries like North Korea and Iran going for these clean energy options, it's refreshing to see a post in support of Iran going green.

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Thanks for posting that e-mail. I think it's pretty revealing, in the sense that it shows that scientists are well intentioned, but that it also shows why it's essential to rely on peer review to...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I would disagree with this assessment. R(0) works on every level, so it doesn't really matter where you have your benchmark (i.e. you could define the disease as only being restricted to hospitalized...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I am not sure if I follow what you are saying. If 37% is unvaccinated, for that 37% the virus does not change. It's just that there is less chance of catching it because others don't have it (or at a...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Yes that's good news, but it all depends on the region and circumstances. Israel probably has a better climate and the current time of year also helps.

But what vaccination rate you need, is...
