re: How much will this pandemic change the world going forward? - Mohican
Our relationship with China is definitely more openly adversarial now, which will work to split the world into its traditional East vs. West. They will become more imperialist. Thankfully, many Eastern parts of the world have adopted Western values and are more aligned with us culturally. But I see ...

re: Coronavirus and the Collapse of Our Imaginations (some positive vibes) - Mohican
Since servers moved to clouds there has been one beneficiary that I’ve seen. Starbucks. People want to get out and mix it up with other people. They will do it one way or another. They [i]need[/i] it. Also there’s an intangible human element that managers need to see and interact with. ...

re: What's happening to the trend of people dying from the regular flu right now? - Mohican
I think a real question is what is the difference in P&I (pneumonia and influenza) vs PIC (pneumonia + influenza + COVID-19). The CDC only keeps up with the former year to year. How does that number change as a result of Coronavirus? The difference will tell us what the true effect of this ...

re: For all you quarantine fans, every single one of us will be exposed to COVID at some point - Mohican
This is a huge cost/benefit scenario. You either believe the cost of shutting down the economy is worth the benefit or you don’t. Furthermore, if you DO believe it is, you have to have an answer as to when the cost becomes TOO MUCH and when we open back up again. Many, myself included, think...

re: UK Official: 66% of Chinese coronavirus victims may have died this year anyway - Mohican
This is a point that too few understand as it requires second level thinking. A large portion of Coronavirus deaths would have died of pneumonia from some other source, be it a Rhinovirus, the flu, or a different strain of Coronavirus. We also don't know how many people die from Coronaviruses ...

re: Random thought - would doing extra cardio right now help if/when COVID attacks? - Mohican
It wouldn’t hurt. I wouldn’t overdo it but when your lungs are more efficient and your body processes oxygen better then if you contracted the virus it would give you more margin as opposed to a 70 year old lifetime smoker. It won’t make you immune to the virus, but exercise is a proven immunit...

re: What will the perception of coronavirus be in the future? - Mohican
[quote]The US death count will end up exceeding 9-11, so I think it will certainly be remembered in the end. [/quote] How many people die from pneumonia every year in the U.S.? Do we need a news ticker for every car fatality? What we lack is context. Coronaviruses as a group are est...

re: My conspiracy theory about all this - Mohican
[quote]Well, this is killing the opens borders argument and building nationalism here in the USA.[/quote] National socialism maybe. There’s no doubt this virus, from a timing standpoint, seems almost too good to be true. Human element couldn’t bring him down, maybe a virus will. Unbelieva...

re: Where do we go from here with Corona Virus? - Mohican
I don’t think people will go much longer holed up in their bunkers unless they see first hand a real impact that matches the hysteria. At some point people have to psychologically feel the pain before true alteration of behavior. That being the case, we’ll either see a spike at some point this s...

re: People saying the flu is worse. - Mohican
[quote]In 2019 we only had 7428 deaths attributed to the flu. That works out to 143 per week. COVID-19 is already above that weekly rate after ONE WEEK! The other thing to keep in mind is these numbers are from the full 52 weeks of the year. The numbers for COVID are only for at the most, a couple...

If we tracked “Coronavirus” cases and deaths every single year like this year, we would probably shrug this off as a slight uptick. ...

re: Do businesses not have saving anymore??? - Mohican
Overnight the CDC basically shut these businesses down for 8 weeks. No, they did not prepare for their government to do that overnight. Regardless of whether that was right or wrong. We’ve never decided artificially shutting down our economy was the answer to a pandemic. Maybe in the future ...

re: Wow---what do you think this will mean for small employers that try to stay open? - Mohican
The CDC basically required us to shut down for 8 weeks. Now they’re requiring us to process this. They basically just said frick you to every small business in America. Oh, we’ll get assistance after our business is shut down and after we’ve filled out mounds of paperwork. We’ll get penni...

re: Who All Caught The Flu in the last 12 months? - Mohican
No flu or barely any cold for me this year. Did not take the flu shot this year but the wife and kids did. My wife was in the hospital with severe pneumonia around New Years and is just now fully recovered. She tested negative for the flu twice. ...
