At least if you're going to lower yourself to sarcasm you could do me the service of not hiding your username when doing so .
Made yourself look a right tit there, eh? And MC apparently decided to thank you for it.

I don't try to impose anything on anybody (unless you care to give an example?), just trying to inform.
You omitted the "mis" in front of inform

Careful, you're on thin ice here....you'll get on a list of some sort. I wouldn't like to see you get hurt by the old boys club.

Well, there are always friendlier places one could retire to in extremis.

It’s not about me and what I know or don’t know about your beliefs, a casual reader just won’t get that you intended it as sarcasm.
The claim that xyz is fake and only serves to control the people (or some other dark aim) is probably the most often called-upon and longest-living conspiracy theory of them all. Heck, it may even be older than the innerwebs!

It's not my problem if a grownup has never heard of that.

Reminds me, Norway and Denmark have announced they are opening their borders but with the exception of the Swedish border.
Now, why would that be?

Every day makes me laugh!

I know you like ETH studies so you will welcome a new one that forecasts the Swiss coronavirus second wave will bring at least 5,000 deaths.
Myself, I find this scary

Re: Coronavirus

I find it very sad that this thread has nothing more to offer than bickering - perhaps a new „facts only“ thread should be started for those looking for information.

To that end here is an interesting angle on Covid-19 suggestion it might be a blood vessel disease. My main question in why has this come to light only now.

It hasn't. They knew about it in April.

Medical science is really slow, painstaking work.
A hypothesis will be tested again and again to ensure that test data is valid.
Scientists don't tend to jump to conclusions and make public unproven theories - unlike ignorant presidents.

Thanks! Good link! Can only think there will be a run on blood thinner drugs soon.

They've been using blood thinners on hospitalised covid patients for quite some time. As for how it affects blood vessels, there have been a few tv programmes about this in the UK, and the matter was discussed in some detail with the link between covid and Kawasaki disease in children, which affects the bllod vessels.

A couple of links for anyone interested on how covid affects blood vessels:

I'll happily join you if you need a drinking buddy marton, not to escape the virus, but to escape the covidiots. There's a couple of people who've gone short of a slap this week, mind you, they were probably idiots before this happened and I was never been blessed with patience at the best of times.
p.s. I'll bring my own vodka unless you have a good supply of Chardonnay

Welcome, three brands of Chardonnay in stock; Woodbridge, Hardy's and Beaumont.
