@Builder,
I note that you don't provide a link to the thread so you can cherry pick and not provide context.

Nice work Craig Kelly clone.

When did you turn into a person who asks stupid, insulting questions?

About the same time you became a complete conspiracy nut - coincidence?

For those playing along - here's thestart of the chat Builder and I had about sarscov2 - with links so you can check primary documents.

You posted this

It's COVID-19, and depending on how you ingest it, the result is actually a form of SARS.

To which I replied this

Not to disagree with most of your points saying COVID is a form of SARS is like saying cats are of a form of hyenas, in that they are both mammals.


After that it got even more fun.

And you're denying that the Lancet agrees with me?

You're about as much fun as stubbing your toe.

Present some evidence that SARS CoV2 is not COVID-19.

If you can find some.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a new beta-coronavirus similar to the SARS agent and has been identified as the causative agent of COVID-19. (Beta-coronaviruses also include SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV.)

COVID-19 is a disease.

SARS-CoV-2 is a virus.

And they're not the same thing, Walter? Is that your claim?

@Builder,
I only got a kind of crash course in virology, and even that is years ago.

Perhaps it has changed, but I'd thought that when a virus finds a host, multiplies, and spreads, it can become a disease.
So it's not "the same thing".

(Diseases are caused not only by viruses but by bacteria, fungi, or parasites as well.)

@Builder,
We've been here before

HIV is a virus.
AIDS is a disease.

Viruses are not diseases. They can certainly cause them.

Do you know what your poker tell is for when you sense you're losing an argument? You call those who disagree with you boring and painful. I'm sure that's at least half right.

@knaivete,
Thanks for sharing. My wife and I were subscription patrons of the San Francisco Symphony for 13 years, until I got tired of driving from Silicon Valley to San Francisco many decades ago. Heard some of the best conductors and musicians in the world.

Two Crocodiles were sitting at the side of the River.The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said, 'I can't understand how you can be so much bigger than me. We're the same age, we were the same size as kids - I just don't get it.'
'Well,' said the big Croc, 'what have you been eating?'
'Politicians, same as you,' replied the small Croc.
'Hmm. Well, where do you catch them?'
'On the other side of the river near the Parliament car park in Canberra.
'Same here. Hmm.....How do you catch them?' asked the big Croc.
'Well, I crawl up under one of their big Lexus, BMW or Mercedes cars and wait for one to unlock the car door. Then I jump out, grab them by the leg, shake the **** out of them and eat 'em!'
'Ah!' says the big Crocodile, 'I think I see your problem. You're not
getting any real nourishment. See, by the time you finish shaking the **** out of a Politician, there's nothing much left but an arsehole with a briefcase.

The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews was visiting a primary school in Melbourne and visited a grade four class. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
The teacher asked Mr Andrews if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy.' So our illustrious Premier asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'.
One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy."
"No," said Andrews, "that would be an accident."
A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone, that would be a tragedy."
"I'm afraid not," explained Andrews .
"That's what we would call great loss."
The room went silent. No other child volunteered. Andrews searched the room.
"Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"
Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher held her breath.
In a quiet voice he said: "If the plane carrying you was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy."
"Fantastic!" exclaimed Andrews , "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"
"Well," says Johnny, "It has to be a tragedy, because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great loss ... and you can bet your sweet ass it wouldn't be an accident either!"
The teacher left the room.

Front page "news" in Uncle Rupert's Aussie flagship, the C-Mail says facebook planning a change which will allow paedophiles on its messenger service to escape detection. AFP will lose up to 20K tip-offs a year about suspected child abuse. Calling Mark Zucker the "MOST CALLOUS MAN in the WORLD".

Looks like Rupert's feathers are a bit ruffled.

Notice this doesn't make the cut in Uncle Rupert's "news limited" in Australia? Never any advice about strengthening our natural immunity. Despite evidence like this.

Quote:
"Typically access to healthcare facilities, hygiene and sanitation is poorer in these countries and is often believed to be the contributing factor of higher incidence of communicable diseases there. It was not unexpected that Covid-19 would have catastrophic consequences in the low and low-middle income countries," says Dr Shekhar Mande, director general of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

India has a sixth of the world's population and a sixth of the reported cases. However, it accounts for only 10% of the world's deaths from the virus, and its case fatality rate or CFR, which measures deaths among Covid-19 patients, is less than 2%, which is among the lowest in the world.

Now, new research by Indian scientists suggests that low hygiene, lack of clean drinking water, and unsanitary conditions may have actually saved many lives from severe Covid-19.

In other words, they propose that people living in low and low middle-income countries may have been able to stave off severe forms of the infection because of exposure to various pathogens from childhood, which give them sturdier immunity to Covid-19. Both papers, yet to be peer reviewed, looked at deaths per million of population to compare fatality rates.

Seem strangely right that Australia's oldest surving piece of film is of a cigar smoking guy on roller skates with a hand print on his ass...
