Lake of the Ozarks

I see from afar that the St. Louis media are convinced that ZOMG WERR DOOMED LOL~!!!!!11!1!1 because there was a big outdoor pool party at the Lake of the Ozarks over the weekend where the participants were packed slightly more tightly than six feet apart.  One of the people peddling the superspreader hysteria is a physician who also happens to be St. Louis County Executive right now.  Meaning, someone who should know better.

Here’s why I highly doubt this will be a superspreader event, three factors are working against it at the same time:

(1)  Outdoors.  It has been documented all the way to the Moon and back that the virus we’re all worried about spreads far more easily in indoor rather than outdoor environments, all other factors being equal.  This was an outdoor party.

(2)  Warm weather.  It has also been documented all the way to the Moon and back that warm weather greatly impedes the spread of this virus.  From the video, if people were comfortable enough to be in a pool in warm weather pool-appropriate clothing, then the weather must have been pretty warm.

(3)  Asymptomatic individuals.  Presumably, nobody there was showing any symptoms, and if they were, they didn’t go.  So, the people who were there who were carrying the virus, and per the law of averages, I would bet that number is more than one, were asymptomatic carriers.  Once again, to the Moon and back, it’s close to impossible for asymptomatic carriers to spread the virus.

Because science.

All that ultraviolet radiation pouring down in summer, any virus is torn apart as badly as the cells of the Pripyat Firefighters at the Chernobyl reactor. Every-time I get sick I know exactly where I got it from. There is always a coworker, or in the old days someone at school, or a family member whom I was forced to spend a lot of time around who had something before I came down with it. You don’t get the flu etc from picking up an orange at Walmart.

This virus is extremely hard to spread on contact surfaces.

China Drafts Sovereign Immunity Bill to Fight Global Coronavirus Lawsuits

https://www.breitbart.com/asia/2020/05/27/china-drafts-sovereign-immunity-bill-to-fight-global-coronavirus-lawsuits/

China’s National People’s Congress (NPC), one of its two communist legislative chambers, proposed drafting a sovereign immunity law on Wednesday to allow Chinese people to sue the American state in courts, an act of revenge for mounting litigation against China.

This pool party even made the more tabloidy-sensationalistic parts of the news media in this country.

Finally made it up to the barber shop today. Found out something interesting. The outbreak in Audrain County is mostly beaners working at a hog processing plant. I’d already figured out why Saline County has the highest rate in the State. Marshal has two meat packing plants. Beaners again. Same with Buchanan County. St Joe has a meatpacking plant. Many of the rural counties have less than a dozen cases. Of those with more cases, it looks like it’s almost all spics. Joggers don’t seem to be affected in rural areas for some reason.

A story on drudge today says they were shocked — SHOCKED — to find that 95% of the pozzed in San Fran were spics, 5% gook/whatnot, and zero% honkey. And that they were low-wage Workers of Essentiality. (Thank you por your service.)

Just read that. It said “most lived in households with three or more people.” Even out here, they have twenty of them living in one house.

It’s worse than I thought. They’re actually shipping in Beaners from Mexico and keeping them in “housing” on the hog farm.

Hog farm employees are in the country from either Canada or Mexico on TN-7 visas. While the visas allow for immediate family members to live and study in the U.S., Brenneman Pork only allows employees at facilities and its housing in rural Audrain County, according to the statement.

Right down the road and I wouldn’t have known about it except for Corona-Chan. How many other places is this happening?

New coronavirus losing potency, top Italian doctor says

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-italy-virus/new-coronavirus-losing-potency-top-italian-doctor-says-idUSKBN2370OQ

ROME (Reuters) – The new coronavirus is losing its potency and has become much less lethal, a senior Italian doctor said on Sunday.

“In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” said Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan in the northern region of Lombardy, which has borne the brunt of Italy’s coronavirus contagion.

A little off topic, but why are the FBI agents in Ozark either Black and/or gay?

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
