I suck at the internets... but it shows all Covid deaths compared to nursing home Covid deaths.

That’s truly incredible.

Can’t wait for a new Deep Space Field picture with the jwst. The Hubble shot has been my phone and desktop background for years and years. It’s the most important photo ever taken IMO.

Re: Super Bowl Thread

Also, Brady is getting all the headlines, but man, the TB defense just destroyed KC's offensive line That was amazing to see. But also reinforces that the Bears are not a QB away from contending. Consistent pass rush is how you shut someone like Mahomes down in a big game. How many times have we se...

Why not the Bears? Playoff team even with stinky QB play much of the year, mediocre the rest of the time. Seems like Brady would be exactly what the team is lacking.

Re: Superbowl Thread

Ok, so the Chiefs can’t be doing things THAT differently. Is this just because you can’t do it against Brady? The first one I didn’t mind. The second one was inexplicable. 3rd and 10? Sure. Call it there. But not 3rd and 2. They’re totally in #32’s head. Chiefs can still come back but wow I didn’t ...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I *think* they're just trying to scare people into staying compliant. We've got a *long* way to go to come down from the highs, and loose behavior could reverse things pretty fast. It would be ideal if people stayed hunkered down for another month or two, and an accurate headline of "holy jeez...

None that I know of. What I've heard is that we are basically flying blind because we don't really test for variants. At least not up until now.

A couple of the more public experts like Osterholm and Gottilieb were making the rounds today really pushing a spring fourth wave due to variants. I can’t tell if they’re seeing something I’m not or if they’re just trying to make sure we don’t lose compliance too fast as things improve. I'd bet hea...

I read a couple interesting things about the J&J vaccine. First, it’s a one shot vaccine....for now. They are also doing a 2 shot trial that might boost immunity further. Also, J&J’s test was done against a later population than Moderna and Pfizer. It was a sicker population with a more comp...
