Interesting article

blahblahblah bullshit article about hydroxychloroquine, now proven to be completely useless against COVID.

BCG vaccination is used in a lot of developing countries. SE Asia and sub-Sharan Africa in particular. Both are areas with oddly low CV-19 death rates as well.

Keep in mind I still think type A blood and Vitamin D deficiency, along with obesity, are far higher risk factors than things like the BCG vaccine can provide protection for.

Random pseudo-scientific nonesense theory pulled out of ass about non-related vaccinations and COVID. Might be a point about vitamin D, and obviously obesity is a mortality risk factor, but not relevant to spreading the disease.

Interesting study

another "interesting" study about the now completely debunked non-cure.

Apparently "interesting" is a new way of saying, "I have no actual knowledge on this topic but I have the internet so you should not trust doctors and scientists"

Another interesting article on a possible treatment drug that doesn’t appear to have panned out.

Omar should just keep translating Peacedog's posts in case there are other poor Swedes or Brazilians reading the stuff here for an actual understanding of life and death issues.

But your jokes aren't funny, and they aren't meant to be. Look at your last joke. It's a smear. Even though I have stated I am not a communist, you are calling me one, or, invoking the fact that you have called me one. Same with your jokes about Omar. You try and present yourself as some rational thinker, posting studies. This is despite the fact that the people you are siding with here, perhaps even defending/shepherding, already agree with you, but, more importantly, all the rest of us have seen your penis hanging posts; your posts where you have claimed to psychically induced women into ecstasy; posts where you push overtly white nationalist and jingoist agendas; posts where you blame the faults of American greed leading to the deaths of innocent persons as being the fault of "the natives." We have seen them. They aren't and cannot be divorced from each other because they speak to who you are and your perspectives.

Should I lighten up? Probably. But, you are completely full of shit.

An interesting article on the use of antibodies from recovering patients in the newly infected.

The takeaway is that it needs to be applied early on in disease presentation.

man the stock market is going crazy. s&p500 hit all time high, mostly driven by tech stocks.

but people seem to think (irrational exuberance) that all the covid woes will be gone soon.

that, or cheap money means there is not much better investment vehicle, relatively speaking

Real Estate market is spiking too - at least here in the promised land of Texas.

AFA stocks are concerned I am only staying in the market until we hit another peak. Then I'm out. I suspect all of this government spending is like eating cheap carbs. Yeah it gets you high for a sweet minute, but doesn't last.

Real estate is all gone in my area. Everything is under contract or already sold. I've never seen anything like it. Being an hour out from two major metropolitan areas I guess it is a convenient "live in the country and telecommute to the city arrangement."

Undeveloped land has gone from roughly $10k/acre ten years ago to $30k/acre two years ago to $75k/acre as of last week. It is insane. And definitely not sustainable. My guess is the land prices will crash in a year, or two, when the hysteria dies down.

real estate market is crazy here (NC) as well. interest rates are really low, people with the WFH jobs are apparently getting paid quite well, too many people moving here, and of course limited, finite amount of land and property. it all makes sense. alas, I'd be a terrible real estate investor at least in any hands-on way. Roger, I'd love to move back to TX, but it'll be way too expensive! maybe I can just get rich from stocks then afford it.

peacedog - yeah keep cashing out a little when the bulls go crazy like this seems like a good idea. OTOH, I was definitely thinking of buying some "reopen" stocks (airlines, travel, etc.).
