In tonight’s episode of ‘who in the f**k wants to live on this planet anymore’, the deranged are amping up their efforts, mounting Herculean efforts, working feverishly day and night to plunge the dagger into the mighty cornholio.
And if it takes the sacrifice of 500,000 sharks – well, that’s just the price that must be paid to get the poke in the arm readied for millions of obedient lolcows to sidestep this dastardly clever virus.
Scientists are racing to create a cure for COVID-19, but the toll on sharks might be irreparable. Conservationists estimate that half a million of the predators may be killed to supply the world with a coronavirus vaccine when one is developed.
Shark liver oil is primarily made of squalene, which helps regulate a shark’s buoyancy in deep water. The compound is also found in plants, humans and other animals. Used as a moisturizing agent in cosmetics, squalene also creates a stronger immune response in vaccines, making them more effective, reported Science Times. – via ecowatch.com
Scientists racing? What f**kery.
Racing for what?
On September 10th the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its estimated Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) parameters to include age-specific data.This data demonstrates that almost all people who contract the COVID-19 virus actually survive.The way the Democratic Governors, other elected Democratic politicians and the media discuss and report the virus you would think most people who contract it die.
CDC’s new IFR survivability estimates after contracting the virus are broken down by age as part of the agency’s “COVID-19 Pandemic Planning Scenarios” Scenario 5: Current Best Estimate are as follows:
- 0-19 years old survivability rate is 99.997%
- 20-49 years old survivability rate is 99.98%
- 50-69 years old survivability rate is 99.5%
- 70 years old or older survivability rate is 94.6%
To put that in a different perspective the CDC’s new estimate for the death rate after contracting COVID-19 by age are:
- 0-19 years old death rate is .003% or .00003
- 20-49 years old death rate is .02% or .0002
- 50-69 years old death rate is .5%% or .005
- 70 years old or older death rate is 5.4% or .054
What do these numbers show? They show the vast majority of Americans face no risk, virtually no risk from COVID-19. For people aged one year to 69 years, the survival rate post-infection with COVID is over 99.5%. For young people under the age of 20, which is most college students, who are being thrown out of school for hanging out outside and congregating with more people than their government allows them to, the survival rate according to the CDC is 99.997%. – via wbckfm.com
Total insanity has settled among the unwashed.
Forecasting here at the Asylum has never been a strong point. But, this aged shitposting writer lays odds that some flavor of total desecration and destruction will be visited upon the believer’s of government and media hysterics before the holiday season. And sadly, not just with the believer’s, but with all innocents.
Depressingly, the world at large has lost it’s ability to recognize freaks:
“Whenever I’m asked why Southern writers particularly have a penchant for writing about freaks, I say it is because we are still able to recognize one” – Flannery O’Connor
