It's a video about the Einstellung Effect. Something you're all exhibiting right now.



The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it.

Interesting video, SIX. I assume that you mean it to apply to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the solutions that "people" apply to the situation are mechanized. It emphasizes the importance of eliminating mindset (bias, assumptions) when tackling novel problems.

But there is one thing that separates the stupid-stupid people from the smart-stupid people: a novel, elegant, non-mechanized solution.

So, what's your solution?

I think, for starters, you would do yourselves a lot of good if you started handling stories that you read regarding the Coomph with at least the tiniest shred of skepticism.

So where's your big solution to the problem, SIX? You haven't even been able to predict the course of this pandemic. You started out posting it was nothing worse than a cold, now you're posting "If you're weak, you'll die". Talk about moving the goalposts!

I said it wasn't any more serious than the flu, and that most people will only suffer cold-like symptoms or not even realize that they have it.

Nothing that I have originally said about this virus hasn't already been proven true.

I said that they should shut down all flights from China and even Europe. Not only was I called racist by some here, but JSF even ragged on me for that and said I wasn't being "patriotic" when that would mean barring US citizens to return here.

I said they shouldn't let people back from cruise ships... but they did.


I said that living a healthy lifestyle, eating right, exercising and taking vitamins are going to go much further in protecting you than a stupid mask ever could.


Circumstances have changed now since it's literally everywhere. It's too late to "keep it out". It's here. It's everywhere except for Antarctica now. It's never going to go away. And like the common cold, it is now part of the air that we all collectively breathe.

You WILL get it. If you are weak, then you will die.


Hate to break it to you. I've been right about everything else, and I'll be right about this too.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

That's true

Not true, your very first statement was wrong.

Quote:

All returning citizens should have been quarantined

Quote:

Should have been quarantined. Instead, they stuffed them on a plane with uninfected people. Now THAT'S not taking quarantine seriously! https://www.snopes.com/news/2020/02/27/coronavirus-plane/

Absolutely brain-dead wrong. About as stupid as saying that you won't get smallpox or polio if you eat right and sleep well.

Not really. The sun deactivates it, so there is a natural cleansing process. About as stupid as saying that malaria comes from "bad air" instead of a spirochete. (In fact, that's where the word malaria comes from. Mal, for "bad" in the Latin.)

Fixed it for you.

So, where's your big solution to the problem, SIX? The one that shows us that you're smart, and not just oppositional?

That would be hilarious.

Unfortunately the joke is already ruined because the amount of people that are going to die from The Coomph even if every single human being in the world gets it won't even put a small dent in the much larger longterm problem of overpopulation.

Guess you're going to have to see what's on Netflix tonight for yucks instead.




In the mean time though, maybe you can get a little chuckle thinking about how the world really is suffering from a plague whose defining characteristic is opposable thumbs.

360,000 babies born every single day.

Nearly 37 Million babies born so far this year.

https://www.theworldcounts.com/challenges/toxic-exposures/polluted-bod
ies/how-many-babies-are-born-a-day


Here's a friendly little clock to remind you of what the REAL problem the world faces is.


The Coomph, combined with every other single thing that is killing people every day in the entire world combined isn't even close to keeping this even.

Even if The Coomph were to start killing 100,000 people per day worldwide, we'd still be making 105,000 more than are dying.


That's still another 38 Million lives this year outpacing the death rate.


You'd have to have 205,000 people dying per day of The Coomph every single day for the rest of our lives just to keep equilibrium.




Are you catching what I'm throwing yet? I've said it about a half dozen different ways here. Any one of them getting through to you?

Says the hypocrite who didn't want his GF to have an abortion.

Everyone but Catholics know overpopulation is bad. If you'd like to do something about it, you go right on and do that.

Would you like to bitch about anything else that won't be fixed in my lifetime??

You just proved my point, hun.

I don't even have control over the life of or death of a baby in our society that gives women 100% control over every single decision.


I didn't make this virus. If I did, it would be doing a much better job at what it does.

It would have to maintain 200,000 dead every single day, forever, to even keep up with the birth rate. And that's not even including the people it's knocking out that were already going to die soon, so you'd need more than that.


The response to The Coomph is the most overblown and irresponsible "leadership" we've seen in our entire lives.

It's not about symmetry, dummy.

I had better not see you whine or post any links about the damage we do to the environment when the number one cause of it is overpopulation.

Even with The Coomph, we're looking at 10 Billion people on the planet by 2050, compared to around 7.2 Billion right now.

That means that 1/4 of the population in 30 years will not have even been born today.



YOU might not want to talk about this issue today, but one day very likely soon we're all going to have it forced upon us like these lockdowns we're all currently under.

You better get used to it.

Fuck no. Hillary Clinton wouldn't have done any better. Nor would Uncle Joey.

I'm not a low-IQ single issue voter, and this virus means nothing to me. When the economic fallout from the overreaction that wouldn't have been needed if Democrats allowed flight to be shutdown instead of calling racist becomes apparent, you're going to need somebody competent to try to put it back together again. I sure as hell don't want a Democrat handling that job.

But if Trump is going to win anyway, he doesn't need your vote. You can vote for whoever you really like. That's why here in deep, deep blue California, I felt free to vote for 'not the democrat'. It was going to Hillary anyway.

That's a bad prescient to set right now. It's what the Legacy Media is banking on. They're hoping that enough negative stories will allow them to get Uncle Joey in, as well as sweep some seats in Congress. If you make people change their minds about Trump, maybe they'll just stay home and not vote down ballot either.

Not going to happen.


I will be voting out the Governor of Indiana as soon as I get a chance though. There have been no Federal mandates fucking everybody right now. That was done by the governors and other leadership of individual states.

Eric Holcomb's political career is likely over after this.
