    2020 Presidential Election Debates

    I honestly think it's a trick of the lighting and a ruffle in his shirt. Look at Trump's shirt in the exact same moment. Screengrab taken at 0:06 from here: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4910770/user-clip-biden-wire

    Most likely BS. I'm way more inclined to believe it was this: (you can see them clearly at 2:24)

    2020 Presidential Election Debates

    ^ This 1,000%. Everybody is just focusing on the "stand back and stand by" part, which in and of itself is a bit terrifying as it seems like a veiled threat/orders, but not bringing up that he immediately followed it up by saying "but someone has got to do something about Antifa and the left"...

    Politics Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Wasn't reinforcing your point, I was reinforcing that your % was wrong and downplayed the severity. Let's assume (without a vaccine) a 60% infection rate needed to reach herd immunity. 60% of the US population is 196.92 million people, going with your numbers, the result is 787,680 people dead...

    Some percentages listed in this article, but the data is limited at the moment: https://www.advisory.com/daily-briefing/2020/06/02/covid-health-effects Tl;dr: One study found cardiovascular damage in 12% of patients, another of 415 cases found 19% had it. Another study found 77% of patients had...

    Politics Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Out of reported cases, globally, ~3% of people who have contracted it have died. In the US, that number is 2.91% (or approximately 7 times the number that you're claiming). That's without factoring in those who don't die but suffer longer-lasting effects from the virus. Source...

    When are all these cutbacks not about COVID anymore?

    It must be nice living in a different reality. Yes, COVID is still a pandemic and yes there's still a large risk of catching it in places with lots of people. Our college is currently online only, but some students still couldn't get out of their off-campus leases. We got up to the first weekend...

    Politics Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Not 100% sure of NYT's methodology, but it seems like they might be using the upper bound threshold for excess deaths from the CDC's chart as their baseline. EDIT: After a closer look, NYT is using the "Average expected number of deaths" as the baseline for theirs...

    Politics Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Glad your dad made it through okay! I don’t get the comorbidity argument that some here are trying to make. As has been shown in other posts, we’ve had *much* higher than expected death rates for most weeks of this year. If people with comorbidities were going to die anyways, they would’ve been...

    'Twas a joke mainly, but also, with some slight tweaks, you most likely could get Magic Bands to handshake with nearby ones, no park beacons needed.

    I like how some of the people who have issues with technology-based contact tracing (such as Bluetooth handshakes that don't expose personal info) are probably the same people who go to Disney and go "Look how cool this Magic Band is! It's great, I can do everything with it". We should've just...
