Normies and coronavirus

Seeing how the normies still believe that the government is handling the situation well, I just wonder if the best would to let it burn, while having my cigar. I see no harm in normies being less fertile and broke.

And note what actually triggers them is seeing a mouth. You can wear completely ridiculous masks and nobody cares if they can’t see your mouth.
And it's weird because you'd think seeing a mouth would be a good thing in order to recognize facial cues but I guess not. As somebody who is somewhat lacking in social skills, I'd like to see the other person's mouth while I am talking to them.

Sometimes I have to pull my mask down because I am not the loudest speaker and the mask tends to muffle my voice. People do indeed get so triggered whenever I do this.

My wife, a RN, told me she's sick of seeing all her friends on Facebook brag about getting their first or second covid shot and then complain about severe side effects. They're all getting headaches, nausea, other flu symptoms (lol) and the self awareness is just not there.

I really don't think most people are that ignorant yet. My hope here stems from the fact that you're not allowed to question the vaccines on social media so you're only seeing the useful idiots.

I have a new one for you guys: I stopped down at the local country store after hours last night to chat with my friend (the owner). He knows that the covid situation is complete BS, and does not wear as mask at his store. There are still quite a few locals who shop there with no mask, but the number keeps dwindling.

He told me of a woman who lives right down the road from me, who was chatting with him about covid. She said she warms her oven up to 150 degrees F when she gets home from work, and sticks her head into the oven and breathes deeply because she thinks the hot and dry air kills covid.

He is the type of guy with a very flat affect and a good poker face, he suggested to her that she could save time and money by just pointing a hair dryer at her face and breathing. She thanked him profusely for this great idea.

The clown just never fails to amaze me.

I saw someone on Facebook make a post about how their healthcare-working family member has tested positive for the third time, yet has no significant symptoms. Lots of supportive comments ensued. And while it's heartwarming to see people display some empathy, I think it illustrates a number of worrying trends amongst normies:

1) Very few people are questioning the PCR test and how it is being used. The late Kary Mullis, inventor of PCR, stated clearly that the test cannot tell you whether someone's sick. He also said that "with PCR, if you do it well, you can find almost anything in anybody." So with the PCR test, you can in theory 'manufacture' any sort of disease outbreak you like, because you can take a sample and amplify any molecule you choose. PCR, in Mullis' words is a "process that's used to make a whole lot of something, out of something." It's primarily a research tool, and should not be used for diagnosis.
2) Normies and midwits are besotted with science. They seem to envisage science and scientists as being near-infallible, even though there's a replication crisis. When Nature surveyed 1,576 scientists in 2016 "over 70% said they'd tried and failed to reproduce another group's experiments."
3) There is an increasing trend towards a sort of scientific authoritarianism. "Let's follow the science!" "What does the science say?" "That can't be right because government scientists said that [insert reguritated MSM headline]." Yet this violates the very foundations of science, because it's meant to be a discipline which advances by asking paradigm-busting questions and breaking away from the status quo - not by enabling echo chambers and allowing a stagnant consensus to form.

Just going to the local supermarket can change my mood. I was looking through some food items in a cooler cabinet, taking my time, and a millennial couple just stood there 2 metres away, like pair of pathetic, obedient pooches. I carried on going through the items, looked up and still they're just standing there. I got more and more uncomfortable, then angry. I stood up, looked at them both and said, "well go on then, move past". I know I need to have a bit more tolerance, but these levels of compliance just irritate me badly now.
 
The first lockdown was scrupulously abided by most Portuguese.

The second one started two days ago.

I live in a calm zone. If you discount many using masks, the number of people outside at the moment is pre-Covid or even more. People are fed up.

Not great weather today where I live but, even so, the town was deserted. Niche food shops/delicatessens, which could be open, haven't bothered, because they weren't taking sufficient money to make it worth their while, according to another trader. A branch of a large, nationwide, High Street company, which was open 3 weeks ago, has simply upped and gone- no closing down sale, nothing. At least the market was largely present, so I was able to get some free range eggs.
 
People from the UK have hit ATHs for moronity... I met this oh-so-educated English prick yesterday... whose repeated rejection of any logical de-bunking of the bullshit was "well, I just can't be having this conversation".

That's the whole Icke thing with censorship... if you can't win the conversation, let's not have it.

He even genuinely started going down the 'I care about my elderly relatives' road.

Idiot.

Needless to say he was the only guy in the room fully masked-up.

I discovered a good angle to attack zombies with though.

I told him to google 'NCBI fauchi spanish flu' and told him that whole story... ending with 'so if they KNOW bacterial pneumonia is the big threat, why are they telling you to carry a mask around in your pocket?... and if they REALLY cared about your health, why are they not hammering that you need to change your mask every 12 hours?'

Stumped.
 

The lies coming out from the BBC now are so brazen, that if things reach tipping point (and I think they're about too actually, just check the comments under any YT BBC corona news video) then these guys are DONE.

They won't have shred of credibility.
