You're speaking out of your place. 

 

I'm up at 6 am cleaning up because I timed my sourdough poorly and I was gonna reread everything I said to make sure I stand behind everything. 

Sean will know I didnt mean it like it reads how I'm reading it now but it's kind of the snippy comment I've been getting so maybe it slipped out because of that. 

I apologize either way. I'm trying to be thoughtful and get others to be and that wasn't.

 

My bad bro.

I should add the word harmful in front of mutation.  Nothing reproduces identically.

 

Well that's the point and from the beginning the big problem and what's expected from this virus. It's ever changing symptoms and huge population that have no symptoms probably mean a ton of failed mutations that suck and will just turn into another harmless virus that humans host and doesnt hurt us until it finds some other host or is phased out generationally. 

This giant population will have undetectable amounts of the virus and probably have no chance of transmitting anything. If that's wrong, oops. It's super unlikely, but so was this virus moving so many species, and then into humans and then across oceans. Here we are. 

 Personally I hope it collapses due to its instability but we absolutely know it's not a stable virus. Falling apart sounds more likely to me. But I'm optimistic and as you said we are smart. Our health system can beat this. We just want to hurt as few people as possible and in case it is the worst, no one wants to say that they didnt plan and prepare for it. 

 

It could probably mutate into something that cant even hurt us. Its absolutely true.

I've found no reliable sources showing mutation proof or reasonings behind...or info on surface staying length beyond 3 days.  Not saying it isn't there but if it is I would like to read it.

 

Ok.. I must be losing it.

 

Above I mentioned that I was linking the cleaning recommendations from the CDC. We the link doesn't seem to be there now when I see it. And I didnt find it googling it now. But I am tired AF. Maybe the page changed again. They have been changing them a ton.

 

I'll ask the W for the data she might have to see if there is something bleeding fresh.  She might have a fast way to find it

It's all good.  As you know I research the piss out of anything and can't shop effectively because of it.  That has turned to trying to understand how to keep my parents alive and healthy through this.

mathematically there are too many unknown variables. My instinct tells me expect the worst and go from there. Humans are dumb in that we try to calculate things based solely on where we have already been. There are no absolutes other than death, and nothing in this life is a guarantee.

 the CDC has changed their surface recommendations. they are extending the expected life on different surfaces and noting that its mutating faster than the flu. 

Citation?

J the stay at home thing doesnt effect the modeling very much at this point. I am in the camp that it might hurt. But that's pretty flimsy. 

If it does happen from this point forward it's because of political or possible infrastructure problems. 

 

The stay at home thing is not intended to slow the spread of this virus. I think that might be the problem. Staying at home doesnt slow the spread of the virus too much but it may have an impact on the medical community. 

It doesn't at this point here in the US. If we did it better it would be more effective.

I know here in FL we see people doing the 6 ft thing in doses, but not like we should. Considering how densely we are populated, this will need to change. One way or another. Being separated DOES help slow/stop the progression of the disease. This has been shown historically. Combine that with proper sanitation precautions and you will see the numbers slow their rapid increase.

I'm being a bit of a dick.   It means I love yall, and I'm probably just hurt more by this than most. 

 

Here is a resource that is much easier to consume than the CDC white papers and so on and will give you information way closer to what we know and dont know that almost anywhere. 

Not that I should have to Qualify but my roomate when in national security classes for his masters had this guy as a prof teaching about this exactlind of outbreak. My roomate modeled redvs blue teams for his degree using pub health information that this guy is basically the most informed in the world. I have got to see him speak. 

He is also not correct 100% of the time and I dodnt readhis book. He may be a scientologist for all I know but in context to what you need to know, this is better than all the news sources I have seen.  Combined. 

 

And at least you dont have to read the white papers and fall asleep and you dont have to trust me. 

 

Fill your brain with this if you have to spend time thinking about viruses for a while. 

 

I totally get you feeling hurt by this more than most. Your current medical state makes you more prone than most, and for you ultimately more dangerous if you do contract it. I have friends, my parents (mom, step-dad, and dad), and other family in the same 'high risk' boat. It makes sense to be a bit of a dick and we love you too bro.

That being said, with your research on the subject, what would you do differently? I understand if we had a time machine a shit ton could be done, but for the here and now what do you suggest? I can guarantee you have read more than I have.

I sent it to Sean via text. I only get on here with a busted ass old phone. I'll do better at getting you guys that stuff. I did link it before but something changed. They have it under the pricess cruise and the classroom cleaning info pages. 

 

Also, as politely as I can request in reverse,  where are you hearing otherwise?  

I would love to read what you reader watch what you watch so I know better how to speak and convey hundreds of hours of reading faster than just shooting out vague info. If we focus on points your concerned about I can tell you why the science is focused where it is and how you can get your own data and come to your own opinion. I dont even mind if its different than mine,but I'm using my understanding and the understanding of the close personal experts in the field. I live with someone who mapped things like this and we are debating daily. I'm really happy to learn new information and correct my course.

I've been baking bread. Sometimes 8 loaves in a day and I only get on when I'm already exhausted and done logging onto the PC to game with friends and family who just got computers to play with me and the roomate etc. 

 

I need to focus on getting my login for this site to work on the PC or at least new phone.

I've been asked this alot because the science says the best thing, more than medication in fact, is healthy living and luck at the time of introduction to the virus. 

 

From there, if you get it bad, the virus gets stronger in you. If you have no symptoms and it just passes through you, that particular strain ends up weaker. 

 

This is all an oversimplification but the lack of sleep in the average American makes more difference in their outcome than medication for most of these viruses.  That's an unfortunate, uncomfortable,  painful truth that makes wealth inequality even more painful.  Those with enough money to just sleep in or work remotely can add hours to their sleep and give themselves a more than 30% better outcome chance. 

I'm not fucking around with the numbers. Your personal health impacts the heard more than most things. It's such a huge question that I need smaller bites, otherwise I want to snap back and tell you that you need a nap, a salad and a walk then come back to me.

This is important and why I sent that video. 

Gates did an interview on CNN and dropped only 2 bits of info and then pushed his agenda. 

 

Our current tests arent great. Some of the first ones were horrible and the numbers are not at all reliable, and that the modeling all projects doomsday shit or wonderful things because of the variables and the sliders you chose. We are at the BEGINNING of this.

Hope you and the fam are great. Those speakers are ungodly sexy. I do want.

Don't remember exactly where I saw the mutation, but this is from NPR so I trust it.

Although based on the fact they shaded bars I assume they know it and did it right, just aren't sharing and the devil is in the details.

Trying to keep family and friends with a simple comfort. 

 

I've gotten sourdough down to 3 steps. It's nice. I just need to decide my scalability and then how much I want to make but I'm thinking about charging at some point.
