re: The only randomized control trial of cloth masks vs surgical masks - Flavius Belisarius
[quote]There was no comparison to a “no mask” group Correct your title[/quote] Corrected, my bad. I did not have access to the full text, I assumed the control was no mask. The point still holds. The authors found a higher infection rate with cloth masks, which seems patently obvious. A 97...

re: The only randomized control trial of cloth masks vs surgical masks - Flavius Belisarius
[quote]At least add this was done in hospital specifically looking at health care workers[/quote] That’s why we study questions that seem to be empirically obvious. In this case, wouldn’t a barrier of any kind obviously because better than no barrier? Alas, the opposite conclusion was reached, n...

re: Liberal journalists all over twitter saying it was white nationalists? Where is proof? - Flavius Belisarius
Shouldn’t they all want a massive police and military response to crush the nationalists and foreign invaders? The way you know this is false is that no one is calling for a harsh and swift end to the riots. Supposedly 70K protestors are expected in Minneapolis tonight. If it was really white...

re: Hot Sauce War - Flavius Belisarius

re: T or F, we'd be better off if we hadn't shut down and went about life with no change - Flavius Belisarius
[quote]false a lot of hospitals would have been overrun with cases, the subsequent shutdowns would have been far more severe, and the economy would have taken an even more massive hit b/c of it.[/quote] There’s literally not one piece of data to back up this assertion. The models that predic...

re: How are those recall and rescind projects going for you guys? - Flavius Belisarius
[quote]Ya'll making any progress, brahs? Inquiring minds want to know.[/quote] It takes a special kind of a-hole to gloat when people are losing jobs, homes, businesses, retirement accounts, college funds, etc. so that our state cans suck $150 million out of the government tit. People like ...

re: If IF the LA legislature overrides JBE things are going to get very interesting - Flavius Belisarius
[quote]Absolutely. Let the Republican House run with the ball! Open this mother fricker up right now! NO RESTRICTIONS![/quote] We’d reach herd immunity in a month, and be the envy of the south, if not the nation. Our hospitals are at such a low utilization rate, it’s laughable. There is no just...

[quote]Still you, boss. Go back one page. I already explained it in this thread[/quote] Not even sure what you’re arguing at this point? That the Imperial College model that fueled the panic overestimated deaths by a factor of 20, so was so far out it wasn’t taken seriously? Doomcasters lik...
