Don't play the corona card

This is definitely not a resume enhancement:

An 18-year-old woman from Hamilton has been charged after allegedly trying to get out of work at a local McDonald’s by submitting a fake doctor’s note claiming she tested positive for the new coronavirus, according to police.

McDonald's had to move fast and close their dine-in option. Hundreds of thousands of Canadians have lost their jobs. This teenage twit made sure to add to the suffering.

“The fake note was presented to a restaurant supervisor on March 19, 2020. The McDonald’s restaurant, located on Rymal Road, took immediate safety actions by closing the store and sending all employees home to self-isolate,” Hamilton police said in a statement. [...]

Police go on to say there was “significant impact” on the restaurant, local customers and employees.

Yeah. Probably, dozens of customers got called informing them of this corona clown who might have infected them. I can't imagine their stress and, now, anger.


Foods and supplements

Vox Day posts a translated message; an excerpt:

Anyone who has symptoms should take only and exclusively PARACETAMOL (except, of course, medical prescription), drink plenty of water, and very often (if possible sips every 15 minutes). We also have natural antivirals such as Garlic, Ginger, Propolis, and almost all aromatic plants (Mint, Melissa (Torongil), Rosemary ...) Cinnamon, Curcuma, Fruits with Vitamin C ... in direct infusion.

He adds:

I've also heard from various sources that large daily doses of Vitamins C and D3, as well as zinc, have been reported to be efficacious.

I've found that the following four foods / supplements provide a powerful boost to the immune system:

  1. Garlic or garlic powder
  2. Cayenne pepper or sauce
  3. Vitamin C (1,000 mg per day)
  4. Vitamin D3 (2,000 IU per day)

The combined cost is quite impressive. Under $2 per month!


Lethal pandemic

Yup. As the global health care system is overwhelmed, as it happened in Wuhan, the mortality rate will creep up. Those who could have survived won't because they couldn't get the necessary medical attention to fight through the infection. Worse, more people will die of other incidents, conditions, and diseases since hospitals, doctors, and nurses were too busy with Mr. Corona.


Low fatality rate = More deaths

At the moment, there are a total of 89,071 confirmed cases with 3,044 deaths in the world. That's a fatality rate of 3.5%. That's very bad.

Only 1 out of every 28 infected people die. The rest spread the virus! If it truly goes full pandemic, then we'll have millions of graves. Something that is simply not possible with viruses that look scary but manage a small body count. As one can see in that table, the two most fatal viruses, Marberg and Nipah, killed 771 people in total. The Coronovirus is just getting warmed up.


Mecca is closed

Saudi Arabia has halted trips to the holy sites of Mecca and Medina over coronavirus outbreak fears.

Riyadh issued the ban in an effort to halt the spread of the virus, suspending visits to the holy cities in response to Covid-19 concerns.

Smart decision. Millions of Muslims from over a hundred countries go to Mecca every year. These Muslims have saved money for years, sometimes decades, to visit Mecca. They're usually old. Add in the jet lag and many hours of walking, they're also exhausted. Then, after only a few days in Mecca, they go back. It's the optimal location for any virus to cause global havoc.

Of course, we won't see the following BS, retarded headlines from the Left and Muslims:

  • Why does Saudi Arabia hate Muslims?
  • Meet the Saudis: The New Racists!
  • SAUDIS = Hitler's Spawn

Why would they do such a thing?

Norwegian Cruise Line is banning Chinese passport holders from their ships:

Ming Yang, a permanent resident of Canada for 15 years, was supposed to sail from Florida on a seven-day cruise with nine family members and friends this weekend, but a new Norwegian Cruise Line policy states the company will deny boarding to anyone holding a Chinese, Hong Kong or Macau passport, regardless of where they live. [...]

"I feel I've been targeted just because I am a Chinese passport holder," Yang said. "The policy is very racist, and it's targeting a certain race."

Ding ding ding! You win the grand prize: fresh bat soup with monkey brain chunks!

The cruise line also states it will deny boarding to anyone who has visited, or was in transit through, China, Hong Kong and Macau within the past 30 days.

Quite reasonable, indeed.


Powered by a storm

Finally, something cheerful for Boeing:

A British Airways (BA) flight has broken the record for the fastest-ever subsonic flight between New York and London, reaching a top speed of more than 800mph (1,287km/h).

The Boeing 747 aircraft flew overnight from Saturday to Sunday and reached its destination in four hours and 56 minutes, as Storm Ciara sped towards the United Kingdom.

Wow. That route often takes over six hours.


There is no equality

A few years ago, I heard a woman who was talking about boys and girls. She said that the sexes are equal and the differences are "socially constructed". An older woman, a grandmother, seating nearby was shaking her head. That didn't faze the ignorant fool who kept on talking about the horrible oppression of society.

Her profession? Science teacher.

Of course, reality provides concrete lessons:

Your average guy has twice the upper body strength of a woman. After a few months in the gym, that guy can double his strength. So, now, he is roughly four times stronger than a woman when it comes to lifting, pushing, and punching. A man with gifted genetics and discipline can become more than ten times stronger than the average woman. He might as well be a different species at that point. Yet, we get stories in which women are stunned and surprised when their slim boyfriend gets to showcase his strength. This is what happens when you swallow the GRRRL power nonsense from the media.


Viral video fail

An Ontario man who caused a WestJet flight to turn around and fly back to Toronto claims his intent was to create a viral video when he suggested on the plane that he may be sick with the new coronavirus. [...]

Asked why he performed this stunt, he said: "Well, it was really just to create a viral video, to get something that, in my opinion, would have gone onto 6ixbuzz," a Toronto social media site.

Air Canada should simply send him the bill for all the extra costs.


It was a prank, bro!

An Air Canada flight makes a u-turn and flies back to Toronto:

Just two hours into a WestJet flight from Toronto to Montego Bay, Jamaica, passengers had their trips unexpectedly cut short on Monday after a passenger claimed he had the coronavirus.

At some point during Flight WS 2702 the man stood up, announced that he was recently in China and had contracted the disease, according to Peel Regional Police.

"That announcement was shared by the flight crew to the captain and a decision was made for the plane to return back to Pearson [International Airport]," said Const. Bancroft Wright.

No matter where you are, there's almost always one asshole.


A Pandemic

Glenn Reynolds on the coronavirus:

Some possibilities: (1) The Chinese are lying (or self-deluded) and it’s more lethal than their numbers show. Very bad. (2) Their numbers are roughly accurate, and it’s about as lethal as it looks. Bad, but not Very Bad. (3) The numbers are roughly accurate, but it’s more lethal in Chinese with lungs weakened by pollution and chain-smoking than it is in most other people. Probably the best case. At present, we don’t really know enough to choose. At the moment, (3) sounds pretty plausible to me, in which case we’ve got a very contagious but not very deadly disease. But (1) remains entirely possible.

Likely, a combination of (1) and (3). The Chinese are lying and the virus is highly contagious but extra lethal only for Asians. The coronavirus is super racist!


Intellectual Yet Idiot

Five people might die in car accidents today across Canada. A month later that number won't vary a lot. A contagious virus that kills five people today can kill millions a month later. It's sad that this simple, basic, and serious concept is beyond these "intellectuals".


The Chinese are hungry

I knew that they ate dogs and monkeys but this is crazy:

The Chinese food market at the centre of the deadly Sars-like virus outbreak has claimed they sold live koalas, snakes, rats and wolf pups to locals to eat.

The Huanan Seafood market in Wuhan in China is under investigation with officials believing the coronavirus originated from a wild animal that was sold at the venue.

So far the highly-contagious virus has killed 17 people and infected hundreds around Asia.

The scary part is the incubation period which is about two weeks! Tens of thousands of people could be infected. We won't know for sure till early February.


Canada. January. Life.

A snow storm rolled by yesterday in my area but it was nothing compared to the epic blizzard that smashed Newfoundland as you can see above. The only way it could get worse is that the snow doesn't have time to melt and then ... another storm hits! That's when the best way to exit the house is to simply walk out of the second floor bedroom window.

Records were broken:

St. John's and other communities in Newfoundland remain under a state of emergency after a historic snowstorm dumped closer to a metre of snow on parts of the province. St. John's recorded 76.2 cm of snow with the storm, crushing the single-day record for snowfall in the capital.

You can see more crazy photos here.


Oy vey!

Earlier:

I'm sensing a pattern here ...


The Wrath of Janes

New research in Social Psychological and Personality Science provides evidence that women strategically dampen signals of sexual permissiveness and desirability to avoid provoking intersexual aggression. In other words, the study suggests that women “dress defensively” by wearing less revealing outfits when encountering other women.

Shouldn't that be intrasexual? Anyway, almost everyone has been in the following situation at a social gathering where an attractive woman with tight clothing walks by.

What do the guys think? Nice.

Whereas the plain women hiss: Slut.


A tale of a tail

An Air Canada Boeing 777 clipped its smaller fleet-mate, an Airbus A321, as it was moving on the apron at the airport. The larger plane’s wingtip struck the tail fin of the Airbus, causing it to spin right around on the spot.

Strange. There is zero mention of the person who was towing the bigger plane. Probably, a diverse woman.


The Power of Meat

She feels and looks better after a month of eating healthy meat. Here are a few choice words from the hilarious comments section: sad, sell out, hypocritical, disturbing, mental help, dishonest, extreme, joke, pain, horror, nightmare, confused, disgusting, sickening, yikes, toxic, gross,...

I just had a steak. It was delicious.


A modern solution

So simple and clever:

Monkeys in India apparently can’t tell a tiger from a dog made to look like a tiger -- or at least that is what one farmer claims.

The farmer, identified as Srikanth Gowda, said he has been able to protect his coffee crop from monkeys by painting his pet dog Bulbul with black stripes, an Indian news outlet reports.

A dog named bulbul dressed as a ferocious cat. Gold!

Bulbul is the Hindi word for nightingale.


Don't mention the race!

The Greater Shithole Area:

A third incident in which a bucket of feces was dumped on a person has been reported outside a building at the University of Toronto and police believe all three are linked. [..]

The suspect, described as a man in his 30s wearing a yellow construction hat, a blue shirt and gloves, fled eastbound on College. [..]

The suspect has been described as a man in his 20s with a medium build. He was wearing a black hat, blue top, light-coloured pants and black gloves.

It's funny that they have photos of the guy in the article but still refuse to mention his race while describing him. Of course, he's not white.

Anyway, Samuel "The Shitman" Opoku has been arrested:

Samuel Opoku, of Toronto, is charged with five counts each of assault with a weapon and mischief interfere with property.


Are you not entertained?

Snowflakes come in all colors:


Intelligent predators

This behavior of birds is both interesting and, er, chilling:

“At or around an active fire front, birds – usually black kites, but sometimes brown falcons – will pick up a firebrand or a stick not much bigger than your finger and carry it away to an unburnt area of grass and drop it in there to start a new fire,” says Bob Gosford, an ornithologist with the Central Land Council in Alice Springs, in the Northern Territory, who led the documentation of witness accounts. “It’s not always successful, but sometimes it results in ignition.”

“Observers report both solo and cooperative attempts, often successful, to spread wildfires intentionally via single-occasion or repeated transport of burning sticks in talons or beaks. This behaviour, often represented in sacred ceremonies, is widely known to local people in the Northern Territory,” write the authors behind the find in the Journal of Ethnobiology.

Perhaps, there could be a sub-category of birds of prey: firestarters!


Mountains of Misery

For the past forty years, women have been demanding their relationships with men be free of traditional sex roles. Women said they can do everything themselves and “don’t need a man.” They wanted to lead and to be their own heroes. In exchange, they wanted men to be more like women: soft and nurturing and flexible.

Men listened and responded accordingly.

Those men are fools.

If traditional sex roles were truly passé, as the culture has insisted for years, women would have no problem finding a husband. If it didn’t matter which sex is richer or more educated, women would be perfectly happy in the provider role and would marry any one of the countless men of lesser status who are clearly and readily available.

But they aren’t doing that. And many of the women who are doing it are miserable.

Young women out of college think that they want to be STRONG, EMPOWERED, INDEPENDENT, and FIERCE. The perfect way to go about this is to get a mediocre job and become another obedient rodent in the soul-crushing rat race.

Soon, they yearn for a family but only with a taller, bigger, stronger, and richer man. Most guys, of course, can't meet the unrealistic standards. Result: tears.


Nature vs. Laboratory

The instinct should be to distrust new lab-manufactured "foods" but too many people want to try new things and share their experiences. They're basically giddy guinea pigs.


Crazy gold digger

Send her to jail:

POLICE in Brazil have charged a model who accused football star Neymar of raping her in a Paris hotel with blackmail.

Najila Trindade and her former husband, Estivens Alves, have been accused of perverting the course of justice and attempting to extort the Brazilian forward.

She set a camera to record and then assaulted Neymar to get him to hit back. Instead of retaliating, he just looked and sounded confused.


The significance of genes

Looks like it's physically impossible to be endowed with explosive speed and endurance.


The Last Straw!

An unexpected lethal weapon:

Metal straws may be eco-friendly, but a coroner has warned of the potential dangers they pose after a woman in England died last year in a freak accident.

Elena Struthers-Gardner, 60, sustained a traumatic brain injury after falling while carrying a mason jar-styled drinking glass that had a screw-top lid at her home in Dorset on Nov. 22, an inquest heard on Monday. [...]

When Struthers-Gardner fell, officials said the 10-inch metal straw pierced through her eye and into her brain.

I'll stick with plastic straws.
