    FYI: Spanish flu most likely started in America and was spread to Europe by US troops (researchers even believe they have traced patient zero, a army chief who caught it on a duck farm, and who's movements correspond to the first outbreaks). It only got it's name because Spain was the only Western county affected by the early outbreaks that didn't censor it's media due to World War One. In America and other affected countries News of the new disease was suppressed so as to not damage moral. Basically Spain was the first place with a unrestricted press that had cases, but it really should be called American soldier flu.

    isn't being mad at the crocodile guy while you live in a playground for people that used to be a playground for various species and is unavailable to anyone but humans and their pets the pinnacle of hypocrisy? I'm just right up against the brink of having no fucking idea what you're talking about. Yes debt, yes New York City, no animal pets, no tourism to animal places, hatred for folks that live out in the sticks. I mean if you could pick something you actually believe in and weren't just talking shit on what the heck would it be? You used to mean a lot to me now I just honestly have no idea what means anything to you. Sorry spoke too soon your investors must be big tech. Hey let's spend a shit ton of money on tech to track what industrial farming fucked up rather than roll back to what was right in the first place and let's just keep using this bullshit pandemic to scare people into big tech solutions. You're an honest fuck.

  • steampunkman

    Having kids go to schools without masks during a pandemic especially ones that are over ten could potentially be the same to the virus as factory farming. This might lead ti younger people being the new targets for covid 19 type illnesses. 🙏hope this isn't very likely.

  • steampunkman

    And maybe we shouldn't be working in labs to enhance these viruses and program the to be bio weapons which can take weeks to show symptoms in humans and therefore spread globally before detected and mutate and become more and more successful. Humans sigh.

    I completely called it. Last year. No one listened. I wonder what happens if there's a global tech/manufactory/industry shut down for a month? Everyone are back to their most basic, all phones and comps all shut down for a month. I knew it back when the news are counting the numbers everyday, and I kept noticing, places with the most industries, the most pollution, most developed urbanly, so it made sense the cause isn't with bats or snakes, but with pollution. It's an air-borne virus that started in one of the most polluted most manufactories and heavily populated in the world, and they are not letting anyone in to investigate the source of COVID-19. And btw, this is coming from someone who was already concerned about Asians in American society in the future about a year ago. No one listened. Everyone thought it's not gonna be a big thing. Now we have stopasianhate movement. I was watching something about japanese forced labour camps in America during WW2 last year, and I thought something like this, especially the news talking about troubles in China a year ago, will happen. China is already sending troops circling around Taiwan, what's gonna happen next, I wonder?

    If it’s really as dangerous as you say, why isn’t it happening a lot more often? The reality is that viruses don’t just jump from species to species (in the sense that the virus can infect the new host’s cells and replicate in there). Certain mutations have to happen for it to be possible.

  • Manuel

    So why is it ok to call it Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain fever but Wuhan virus is somehow not okay? COVID should be called Wuhan disease.

    I think the pandemic has taught people a big lesson, having one stream of income is not really a good idea cause your job doesn't secure your financial needs.

    Rapid increase in human population should have been dealt with to begin with. We are uncontrollably growing in numbers. However, we humans never take this issue serious and shove it under the rug like dust. The governments know they cant solve or get a grip of this problem in short term. Instead, it used preferred to be used as leverage in negotiations with pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, privatized health care systems and more. In fact, responsibilites of taking care of people doesnt end there. Food needs to be provided and this brings new sets of problems like the evolutionary biologist Dr. Rob Wallace in the video says 15:22 Anyone who knows about the rat population experiment should understand that there is too many of us on the Earth.

    Two things: 1. Say the following to any person...any person at all, and watch the adolescent, denial-rich, excuse they vomit out back at you: "Covid didn't happen To us...Covid happened BECAUSE of us." We knew it would happen...Our budgets are for military's instead of mainstreet's...and the rich love when the price of everything (including life) goes up. Number 2. You ain't seen nothing yet. Wait till the next pandemic hits during a climate event...or when a climate event TRIGGERS the next pandemic. You think "Borders" are an issue now??? Oh fuck oh dear. Dumb ass human beings: the definition of when "the really dumb part of the brain controls the really smart part of the brain - instead of the other way around." -Elon Musk
