We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

For example Wyoming, Montana, Hawaii, and Alaska are all doing better than Iceland in deaths per capita. Not surprisingly isolated regions are doing better. Thatís the only thing we can draw from the countries you listed.

Letís try countries more similar both geographically and culturally to each other and the US. Germany, France, Italy, UK, and Spain together have about the same population as the US. Together they have 120k deaths to our 75k.

The only one with lower deaths per capita than the US is Germany with the rest being way more than what we have.

Your comparison would be like someone in Italy saying they should have done whatever Alaska, Montana, Hawaii, and Wyoming did.

You killing yourself would be a net positive, I agree.

We've all read your posts. Nothing will ever be good again or enjoyable. The entire world is grey and on fire. You're wanted in rabble's "I'm depressed" thread.

I've been out fishing and mushroom hunting quite a bit this spring and shit is packed everywhere. I guess I should just be thankful I have some hobbies I can still enjoy when everything else is locked down, but shit, get outta my spots you assholes.

Jerking off is a good social distancing hobby, especially if you do it in public.

DECADES. While bodies pile in the street, the sun is choked out for months on end with chem-trail/vaccination/mind control mist.

I do like the straw man post though, very BEP-esque.

Oh wait...
You know, I donít think this country has the social cohesion to employ those strategies. Even if 80% are willing to do it, if 10 or 20% actively flout those strategies that is probably enough to cause them to fail.

I think the 20% has probably won. The 80% might as well admit defeat and open everything back up.

Pretty sure I said 'never' and I'll stand by it.

If I can find new employment I'll be getting the fuck out of town since it's going to be such a shithole.

So, that was more like a strawkid.... not a fully grown, mature strawman.
