Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

Viruses mutate to stay alive. Wrong. Virus mutations are random. Not so sure about that.... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5075021/ Our current knowledge of viral mutation rates indicates that viral genetic diversity is determined by multiple virus- and host-dependent processes, and t...

Viruses (and other life forms) evolve by mutating and having the most useful mutations carry on, yes.

Except in Mick's case, of course.

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

In any case I don't regard something from any one individual as being conclusive anyways. ....from credible, educated, well regarded individuals. I went with the plural to cover that avenue my friend. Give me something that's been peer reviewed and published in a respected scientific publication wi...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

That is the question of the moment, is it not? Whether the vaccine reduces viral load or duration. I haven't seen any conclusive study on that either way as yet, though admittedly I haven't been looking of late. I think we could both go online for 20 minutes and find legit theories for both sides o...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

Hey 5th...straightforward question. No ulterior motive. How is being vaccinated stopping infections or the spread of the virus? That is the question of the moment, is it not? Whether the vaccine reduces viral load or duration. I haven't seen any conclusive study on that either way as yet, though ad...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

When are they going to explain the reason for why this thing is mutating so quickly and all of these variants popping up? I'm subscribing to the theory that we vaccinated during a pandemic and have forced this before hitting a proper herd immunity to the original virus. Either that or they need to ...

I guess that's why we haven't heard reports of the much-vaunted players-only meeting.

Re: TV Shows: What are you watching?

The Richard Chamberlain one was an abysmal failure. Really? I guess it was a long time ago and maybe I didn't critique things as much as I do now, but that series got me interested in Clavell's novels. I can't recall if I've read Noble House, and I haven't read Whirlwind, but did read all the other...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 21-22

Green has mentioned that he doesn't seem to be able to get through to Petey ... I don't follow the McLinks as much as some here but I don't recall this statement. If true, how can this not be the death knell for Green? Arguably our eventual contender status is predicated on Petey achieving his ceil...

Re: TV Shows: What are you watching?

Just finished both seasons of Ted Lasso. Amusing.

Moving on to Yellowstone now.

Get Back is in the queue.
