Oh, this is not a scarey [sic] virus. Its not even close.


Oh my god. These are two of the worst misstatements (lies?) I have ever seen on this board. But yes, I agree and am glad this is not AIDS II.

No, not at all. Inhaled steroids are not the same as systemic steroids and antivirals are not antibiotics. Even his local colleagues think the tech grad is a quack.

I'd love for there to be a football season but to base our hopes on the delusional utterances of a tech grad is hoping too much!

Man, are you ok?

Me? Fine, thanks. Just beyond tired of this virus being minimized, especially by those who should know better. The path to having sports—never kind a functioning economy, and functioning schools—is taking this virus seriously. The USA overall is not doing that. And facile—if not downright stupid—analogies to AIDS are preposterous.

After you have worked 12 or more hours shifts for 28 out of 31 days a month for 5 now going on 6 months in an ICU going toe to toe with the Angle of Death, then come talk to me. Elderly people with chonic diseases dying of this virus isn't camparable to watching a young healthy man die a slow gruesome death. My perceptive is this I see pandmic down in the trenches. I don't have the luxury of watching edited clips on TV. I don't worry about catching this virus as much as sweating the reuslts of my Western Blot (HIV test) knowing if its positive I'm a dead man.

You watch your first boyfriend die, then come back and lecture me some more all about your superior knowledge of AIDS.

Your statements minimizing this pandemic are wrong. And dangerous.

That had to have been quite nerve racking.

I don't want to demean the AIDS epidemic in any way, because it is heartwrenching.

That said, I do think it is fair to point out that at it's peak, 40K people in the US died from it every year, while this epidemic has already seen 130K deaths.

Not quite....masks do protect you. One of the ways people get the flu and COVID-19 is sticking their fingers in their nose and mouth before they have a chance to wash those grubby paws. A mask can be an effctive deterent to sticking fingers into mouths, noses, biting fingernails, etc...

Not sure if you're talking to me or to ponyte. If to him, he can reply for himself. If to me, I'm fine; that happened a long time ago, in 1994. And I agree with your comment--this is in no way analogous to AIDS.

AIDS was not nearly as scary because if you were not sexually active or were at least in a monogamous relationship you had nothing to be concerned about whatsoever. This disease is much more scary in that you can die by simply going to the supermarket. Of course, context is key for everything.

Dukie when you were copying and pasting all the quotes of different people you must have made an error because the quote above was not something I ever posted.
