  1. Yeah, neither I nor my wife have a steady enough knife hand for that. Ceserean x 4. Transient tachypenia is also really hard to treat in the woods with no oxygen or cpap. WOW!! this is a dumbfounding movement.

    No worries. I’m nearly impossible to offend; I can be easily confounded though. Everything goes through a prism of intellectual curiosity for me. I desperately hope I can get better at social interaction though. I despise having a weak spot.

    Women’s prison and men’s prison are very different. Also, the level of manipulation practiced by incarcerated individuals is astounding. Objectivity is far more important with them than empathy. Also, just because I don’t feel the emotion, doesn’t mean I can’t simulate it perfectly to the majority of people in short interactions.
  4. Based on those numbers it’s a 1.2% hospitalization rate and a 0.02% death rate for positive children. If those numbers hold, that would be a lot of hospitalizations and somewhere around 1000 deaths for the 4.3 million or so 0-18 year olds in Florida. That’s actually pretty bad. Ugly. Way worse than the flu, but way better than the adult death rate.

    I wouldn’t issue people condoms with holes or that had a high rate of breakage failure in them and tell them it was better than nothing. That’s my problem with cloth masks. I agree the DPA should have been used. Do it right or don’t do it at all. The book is so awesome. I’m near Milwaukee now. This area is amazing!

    I don’t mean to sound cold, but my personal opinion is that weighed in the balance a million or two of lives is a small price to pay to not destroy the economic future of a generation. The suffering is meaningless to me. To be honest with you, living in a lab and researching is so incredibly appealing to me. If it paid better that would be my goal. Lastly, I will level with you as to why I have so little empathy, etc. My latest therapists opinion is I have high functioning ASD, formerly Asperger’s. That’s how I was able to do all the didactic coursework learning for a demsn program in 9 weeks with no background in the sciences. I’m not normal. It’s hard for me to communicate with others. I use forum interactions like this to learn what does and does not offend others so I don’t share those opinions in public settings. I often offend people or am misunderstood and have no idea why.

    I was attempting to simplify the representation I was taught in Prescott’s Microbiology and Pathophysiology by Porth.

    That’s not what convalescent studies of SARS-Covid and Covid-19 recovered patients indicates. T-cell immunity was an important aspect of past vaccinations and is a field being explored for future vaccinations. This is a very interesting read: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3246649/

    I’m not a professional yet. I’m just very well read.

    Herd immunity remains to be seen. I am hopeful for a vaccine based on the most recent results; a robust immune response with beta and theta cells present after the booster. Very good indeed. I have no problem wearing a mask during clinicals. Just part of the uniform to me. I have a problem with people being forced to wear inadequate protection giving them the illusion that they are protected, which leads to them ignoring social distancing, hand washing, etc. people are stupid as sheep mostly, and they are dumb enough to think a cloth mask equates total protection. The government should be mass producing kn-95 masks and giving them away free.

    HIV infects helper T cells preventing them from becoming memory T cells, effectively hijacking and destroying the theta cell aspect of our immune systems. That’s why you eventually die of another illness. Immunocompromised people can self isolate and use grocery pick up. You can’t punish the whole country because a few crazy people cough on infants. Those sickos should be jailed.

    ^^^^ This. So true. I wish I could go back and un-catch it. Recovered in March/April, still not feeling right. Still having trouble breathing. Still, I don’t think anyone should have the right to force mask wearing upon others. But curbside pickup seems like a fair trade off.

    So if I were a political party, all I would have to do to control free speech is make sure all the platforms were owned by people affiliated with my party and ingratiate myself with them... oh wait.

    You advocated stifling the voices of dissenters via facebook, etc. it’s a slippery slope. No drugs needed to see the connection between the lines of thought.

    My guess is a bunch of old rich politicians sat around a table, crunched the numbers, and decided the deaths were outweighed by the economic value of the young continuing to work, and they knew that they personally could isolate until it all blew over. Plus they get the added bonus of wiping a group off social security and Medicare that sucks up a lot of resources. Hence the lack of guidance, and outright intentional encouragement of spreading the virus. It is a horrible thought, but to me that seems likely what happened.
