    How about studying the science? It's disappointing to see this discussion continue to revolve around politics. I doubt political preferences could be demonstrated to have any relationship with virus origination and transmission.

    The earliest known evidence of SARS-COV2 was found in samples from March 12, 2019 in Barcelona Spain. The earliest known evidence in China was November 17, 2019 just about the same time as the earliest known evidence in Italy. I'm sure those dates will be refined over time, research is ongoing, but this is what scientific investigation has revealed at this point.

    I wouldn't call this the Barcelona Flu or the Italian Flu. Not sure why a region has to be part of the name of a virus other than international finger pointing. Sure is a good bet this or any other virus could care less what language the host speaks or who was in an executive office at any time.


    So it was the Spanish Flu?   again...   haha.

    The virus should have not been made political from the start.  But someone insured it would be that way.

    Thank you for adding some facts to this discussion.

    A travel ban (greated with derision and smears),WARP SPEED and the EBA.

    Stopping Chinese nationals from entering our country while thousands of infected Americans came home from Asia without tests or quarantine.  Yeah, that was really effective leadership.  :inocent:

    Oh, forgot to mention, the European strain which largely infected the east coast and spread throughout the country.

    Warp speed....  Come on now.  With or without the help of the govt, those vaccine manufactures would have done largely the same thing with the same results.  They are in business and compete against each other.  No doubt the funding was helpful, but they would have done it anyways.

    I don't think it derogatory.  Kung flu( or Kung fu) can kick your butt if you're not prepared, grasshopper.

    It is an apt description.

    If you want to conflate it to a slur against certain peeps that's on you.

    "Hate is the tomb you weave. It will not save you from your suffering" ...(Caine)

    What you think matters very little.  The facts are now that Asian Americans are being targeted and attacked in much higher numbers due to some jackass' hate speech.  Your ignorance is astounding.  But we all knew that.

    I always wondered why guys that believe the virus was deliberate are also the ones who won't do anything to protect themselves from it.

    Seems like if I really believed the virus was an intentional attack on our country then I would be doing my darndest to fight it.

    The irony.  :nutty:

    ...and you are a fool.

    If you don't believe the CCCP let this loose on the world.


    I find it to be a very logical and deliberate move on the part of the CCCP, if that's what actually happened.

    When you have a group of people who are good at 'playing the long game', then it would make perfect sense for them to hit us when we were weakest.  And what was our response?  What ever it was, it was weak.  Why?

    It's interesting how quickly they have recovered as they race to dominate the globe.  But here in 'Murica...  People want to argue about how 'woke' someone is, or isn't....   LMAO.

    Should I skip shot #2 tomorrow?

    Did you get the J&J vaccine?

    I just got back from getting my second shot of Moderna and I feel fine.  Time will tell, but the odds are in my favor.

    I posted the article above to point out that there are real instances of reinfection even after vaccination.   The vaccines are only 90-95% effective, so roughly 5% could be at risk.  90% is far better than zero.  It's not all about prevention of infection.  Studies have also shown the vaccine greatly reduces the severity of symptoms which almost eliminates hospitalizations.

    Oh thankyou! I not as woke as you.

    It has nothing to do with being 'woke'.  Whatever that's supposed to mean....  ???

    It has everything to do with your continued use of a term employed to cause more division and is blatantly false.

    Covid-19 is a corona virus, not influenza.  You should know that.

    The rest of it is a derogatory term and I take personal offense.  My wife and kids fall into that group and half of the people I consider family as well.  If you were bold enough to utter that garbage in my presence, I would be standing in your face.

    Do we understand each other now?

    I believe the gooddoctor mentions something about  not having a cytokine  storm if D is in good supply.

    Peeps are still catching the (former president's virus) whether they've been vaccinated or not. But we are in an endemic in most Southern  states. Infections are dropping.


    I corrected your statement to make it less ignorant.

    Then you are saying that  vitamin D is not important?

    He says it is.

    That qualifies  him as a kook how?

    Even as important as vitamin D may be....  and how much we know about it....  large percentages of the population are still vitamin D deficient.

    Good thing the vaccine is effective whether you are vitamin D deficient or not.  :party-smiley-027[1]:

    Can I use a hand pump style BILGE pump to empty holes filled with water?

    Is it mechanical?

    You should probably go and ask the forest service rangers, they will tell you for sure.

    Maybe implementing a big sponge is the way to go?

  10. Well I guess I'm a smug prick.  :D

    I'm in good company though.  Everyone I know with more than a couple brain cells has been, or is planning to be vaccinated.

    I'll be in line for the booster next year if that's what it takes.  :thumbsupanim

  11. I just copied and pasted directly from the article you provided.

    Prevention should always be preferred to treatment.  In this case, simple mask wearing is an effective countermeasure against the spread of the virus.  Since people don't want to wear masks forever, vaccination will help to ensure infection rates get down to an acceptable level.

    Personally, I never put much thought into treatments for the virus because I put the effort into prevention.

  12. However, Covid would be able to cause an infection again once the cold had passed and the immune response calmed down.

    Dr Murcia said: "Vaccination, plus hygiene measures, plus the interactions between viruses could lower the incidence of Sars-CoV-2 heavily, but the maximum effect will come from vaccination."

    I wouldn't claim it or trespass. You  could always respectfully ask for permission.

    It's worth a shot.

    But if it's the same guy I'm thinking of, then he'll probably offer to sell the claim since that's his 'business'.  If it is in fact the same guy, he hung a bunch of paper over an area I was working and then sold a few claims to some people from California.  Now, every 'winter', those people come out and 'camp' on that land for months at a time.

    Thanks for your input man...I'm going to read that!  There's no placer claim on this wash, just a load claim....so I'm still confused as to weather or not they have any rights to placer gold in the wash.  I'm thinking I can still detect in there based off some of the stuff I read on here....just cant claim it...?  If they wanted the placer gold they should filed a placer claim im thinking....am I wrong?

    By your logic...   What's the difference between placer gold and lode gold?

    If you're detecting and find a target and start to dig, will you stop digging if the target is in the bedrock?  If you dig it out of the bedrock, was it placer or lode?  Will you put it back if it wasn't what you wanted it to be?  Will the claim owner listen to your argument?  Is the trouble worth $20 of gold?

    The simple answer is....   if it's not your claim, placer or lode, then you shouldn't be there collecting minerals.

    I bet I can guess the name of the guy who claimed that wash.  :aw-shucks:
