    Re: YouTube of the day

    I have deep respect for those people who walk the walk before they talk the talk--even if I happen to disagree with them.
  2. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    You've made my point into a straw man. I'm not suggesting that we sprinkle Mercer and Ebola onto our breakfast cereal in order to beef up our immune systems, and obviously it is neither advisable or...
  3. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    This is the most common rhetoric coming out of the "just go along to get along" crowd--when it comes to wearing masks and/or gloves and/or social distancing and/or full on quarantine. However, there...

  5. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    Diet, exercise, and sleep all help people to have a stronger immune system (it's true), but you've forgotten maybe the most important one: constant exposure to new viruses and bacteria.

    You're...
  6. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    I can't help but notice a pattern that countries with totalitarian governments all seem to want to down-play the impact of this virus (China, North Korea, Nicaragua, etc), but that countries with...
  7. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    There may be some people who would benefit from this treatment, so I'm okay with someone developing it and making it available to those who want it. As for me, I opt to allow my immune system to...
  8. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    The malnutrition is a problem (there are no two ways around that), but aside from that one factor, Nicaragua has everything going in its favor. It's hotter there (bad for the virus). They get more...

  10. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    This is an accurate statement, but even so it made me wince. It comes a bit too close to the line from Scrooge, "If he be like to die, he had better do it, and decrease the surplus population." ...
  11. Re: Pandemic: geography, politics & death rate stats

    The word "willing" suggests that he has any control over how many people die from this virus. He doesn't. The idea that he might is a coordinated lie by all of the political opportunists on the...

    Re: Meandering during a pandemic

    Another way of interpreting that exact same study is that the initial data that they used to create the percentages that you keep referencing were wrong. Obviously if way more people have already...

    Re: Rumor...

    Yes, the use of the word "defeat" was overly simplistic. In fact, I'm not happy with the format of my entire last sentence. It's clunky and malformed. That being said, my point is that of course...

    Re: Rumor...

    All of human history is the scientific proof for herd immunity. What more do you need? Do you mean that we haven't proven that we can defeat this one specific virus yet? I suppose that's...

    Re: Thoughts on the current Pandemic

    In some hospitals, they don't even have to test positive for Corona upon death in order to be counted as a Corona death. They're counting everyone who died with similar symptoms without even...

    Re: Thoughts on the current Pandemic

    I didn't mean to imply that the vaccines for the flu are a cure. What they are is a weakened form of the virus that allows people to develop their own natural immunity to the weakened form of the...

    Re: Thoughts on the current Pandemic

    This variety of virus cannot be contained. It is pointless to try. We've know this truth for a long time. It's why we develop flu shots--because we understand that we can't stop it from spreading...

    Re: Thoughts on the current Pandemic

    Yes. We need to expose those who are most likely to be able to survive it and to build up an immunity. The only people we should be protecting are those who would be likely to succumb to it.

    Re: test

    This is only a test.

    Had this been a real TRN article, then the word test would have been followed by emoticons, acerbic commentary, and links to unrelated YouTube videos.

    Re: Old Dichos Never Die

    I didn't know that definition of fundillo. I use "fondo" often to talk about the bottom of something (a tube or a barrel) or also to reference the background in a photo, "Alla en el fondo." I...

    Re: Looking for a cheap nature "retreat"

    You can get an inexpensive room in Moyogalpa or Altagracia on Omepete for very little. I rented by the month, and I paid around $120 while I was there. These are cities (as opposed to remote cabins...

    Re: Looking for a cheap nature "retreat"

    I vouch for the Boom Cabin. The cabin itself is nothing special, but there is no beating the location. I posted three articles (with pictures) about the days that I spent there.

    I'm on board with what you said with the exception of this bit about higher CO2 levels not boding well for the life forms that inhabited the earth at that time: source needed.

    Re: Save El Porton Verde (and my son!)

    I thought that there was a passable road (of sorts) from Bramadero to Robledal. I remember seeing the turn off when I walked by Bramadero on my way back from Yali, and I saw it from the Robledal end...
