Coronavirus Mega-Thread.


Message added by Grumpy Owl,

This topic is for all general discussion regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. There are of course numerous other related topics for discussing specific aspects of this pandemic in more detail. And there are other parts of this forum for more 'off-topic' discussions.

Psych people out, to make them weaker perhaps.

Yes - they couldn't have picked a more sinister looking 'destination'. I see Soviet style concrete blocks going up all over South Birmingham and though this was well before Covid-19 came on the scene, I remarked to numerous people how these buildings looked nothing like student accommodation and more like torture centres for some future Dictatorship.

 

I might have been closer to the truth than I imagined.

Just been listening to todays U.K column news. The new defence secretary in the U.S is reported as saying he will get all Americans vaccinated weather they want it or not. Things like this make me think yes we are fucked. A lot of people on here tonight are very despondent as I some times feel also. Some days the situation does seem hopeless. So glad I joined this forum last April whilst furloughed. It does help to know I am not alone. Fortunately my wife feels the same about this fake pandemic as I do. We are in a minority, but we do have hope. While we have hope we potentially have every thing. As sickofallthebollocks said earlier "STAY STRONG". Don't let the bastards grind you down.

I was feeling rather down a few days ago . Whilst I see this situation as still very bleak i do see a glimmer of hope that i had lost sight of recently.they are overdoing it and more and more people are fed up.

It's becoming so absurd it seems desperate. They either want to push people over the edge and are wondering what's taking so long or they are getting desperate and sloppy. Were in for some fireworks these coming months.

It's a "beautiful" Stalag for covid trouble makers who break home quarantine.   To get an idea what is being said, switch the subtitles on, the white screen symbol on the bottom right, and then click the cog symbol thing and select the auto translation to English in the menu.

 

Wir müssen die Covid-Skeptiker ausrotten?

Haven't seen a doctor in years? Always keep healthy?

 

You, sir, are not a good citizen - it's people like you who stop our healers buying big cars and new golf clubs. As a non-participant in the National Disease Service, you help to keep the share price of Glaxo in the doldrums!

Sensible and hard exercise plus a diet on the Spartan side. To be honest though, the sudden change in our stability of living and exposure to threat, makes me better understand why monks in China did martial arts. The philosophy was purely defensive but I guess it was effective.

Texted a Dutch fella I met while travelling out of curiosity, asking what's really going on over there. He said a lot of people are now waking up in a big way to the fact that this is not about a virus.

 

While that's great I'm a bit split on the violence. On the one hand it hands them an easy excuse to crack down harder, on the other hand it's better than peaceful acceptance of destruction of countless lives and livelihoods. The best way by far is to take off the masks and open businesses but at this stage that's real unlikely

I've also never been to a GP for years , in fact not since I dodged a vaccination at six. Fish, lean meat, salad and fruit are the most prominent items in my diet, plus lots of vitamins/minerals.

Yeah it's a tough one. Mass noncompliance would be the ideal choice. I was talking with a couple friends who are in the uk about this last night. One thinks violence is the only way out of this, the other said its exactly what they want.

 

What's for sure and I say this as a pacifist and a believer in the teachings of christ that when I think of the idea of forced vaccination,  forcibly removing people, using fear to manipulate and worse then I think although I agree with friend number 2 that certain tactics are certainly called for.

 

Like I said to someone earlier, if people want to live in fear, wear masks, go get vaccinated and hide away that's their prerogative.ill give my opinion but each to their own. Second someone wants to tell me to do these things we have a problem and its absolutely fair enough to reply with force. Might not get you very far but surely it's the only logical conclusion for any being with any soul still intact.

I'm sorry people to make you suffer this I literally sent a family member a BBC article saying that people the have been vaccinated could pass on the virus. 

 

I got sent this meme back. I mean you could not make it up could you? I'm not sure if this is supposed to be funny. Clearly a dig at me. Are people really this stupid?

Good job I don't use Amazon.

Anyway, I'm pretty certain drivers are open for negotiation if you bribe them. ;)

This is really bad man. Really bad. This is Nazi Germany all over again. All we missing now is the trains and the "showers".

I received a letter today to suggest an opportunity to get vaccinated at my doctor's. Snag is I haven't seen a doctor in years. Never have flu jabs and my only weak spot is chronic hayfever. My decision is already made that I have no plan to vaccinate, whether for flu or this latest virus. Rather than preach my opinion, the only argument I can make dead simple is that "officially" it's now stated the vaccine doesn't stop those who opted for it speading the virus. So, I ask, what is the point. I don't perceive any threat to myself (assuming that's the aim of the letter). As I said before I am not in the same tight spot as those people who are employed. I was already a bit of a social misfit before all of the hysteria kicked in so am used to battling my own corner. I sometimes wonder when push comes to shove, how many of those who often tell me they won't have the vaccine will give in. Not that I would judge them in any way. As a psychologist, I know how social conditioning makes it very hard for most people to defy authority. Conditioning, of course, starts at school and it was only effectively challenged by the masses in the mid sixties - turn on, tune in, drop out. Now, my guess is social restrictions will follow those of us "witches" who refuse to follow the crusade. Not sure how many there will be - mabe many like me, who knows?

Just bin the letter. If they harass you with text etc.... reply with one word "Decline". It's an offer...right?

Seen the covid hotels they been building in Germany?

 

Any who speaks German it would help if you could give us a rough idea of wtf the reporter is saying:

 

 

 

Frankly it looks scary as, man.. 

looks more like a prison than a hotel. Why would they need bars unless they expect people to try and escape what shit starts happening when they’re in there.

There are two things we want to avoid I think: total compliance or a little bit of violence/rioting.

 

With 100% compliance they will take the piss and continue to do so indefinitely. WIth a little bit of rioting they will bring in the heavies and use it as an excuse for even harder lockdown.

 

With mass rioting or mass peaceful non-compliance they will have a real problem on their hands.

Seems to be a global movement underway. In short, governnents are being recognised as corrupt and anti-democratic. The balance of trust and compromise has faded. Worldwide people are seeking genuine representation. In Russia and Belarus this has come to a very serious head. People there want more from government and the younger Russians are now very alike Europeans. It's the same desire everywhere. People need a proper constitution and legally protected civil rights - crisis or no crisis. They need fair elections and multiple parties. Not the same old faces at the top year in year out. A lot more should have been done to keep employment mobile and functional. I.T. was allowed to destroy real jobs. I mean, in my day young people got secure jobs in factories and then socialised. So much went wrong. The snag is politicians are neither trained or capable to reform the system. Sorry this is a it jerky but the idea is there.
