Sandbox (4)

Sometimes very active discussions about peripheral issues overwhelm a thread, so this is a permanent home for those conversations.

I’ve opened a new “Sandbox” thread as a post as the new “ignore commenter” plug-in only works on threads started as posts.

  1. phoodoo: slaughtering innocent people for its own interests.

    https://nationalawakening.org/press-release-uyghur-genocide-and-crimes-against-humanity-credible-evidence-submitted-to-icc-for-the-first-time-asking-for-investigation-of-chinese-officials/

    The crimes committed against the Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Turkic peoples which should be investigated include:

    massacres;
    mass internment camps;
    torture;
    disappearances;
    forced birth control and sterilisation;
    forcible transfer of children from their families to Chinese state orphanages and boarding schools;
    measures aimed at eliminating the use of the Uyghur and other Turkic language in schools;
    enhanced surveillance of Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples significantly beyond that experienced by Han Chinese;
    repressive measures against Islam; and,
    organ harvesting.
    The evidence of the crimes provided in the Complaint is detailed and shocking. It includes descriptions of brutal torture through electrocution, humiliation in the form of being forced to eat pork and drink alcohol, mandatory insertion of IUD birth control for Uyghur women of child-bearing age – of which there is recent evidence of a major increase, and an estimated 500,000 Uyghur children being separated from their families and sent to “orphanage camps” where there have been credible reports of attempted suicide by the children.

    That’s what you are supporting.

  2. phoodoo: Carpet bombing with agent orange just isn’t as respected as it once was. Unfair, unfair.

    If we want to go down that road, feel free:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_China

    Some of the numbers on there are frankly unbelievable. Makes vietnam look like a scrap in a schoolyard. 365,000 Vietnamese civilians dead? Between 1755–1757 China managed almost double that alone!

    The funny thing is the USA have a list as well

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_the_United_States

    but it’s mostly deranged individuals then acts of the state.

    And you want to talk about agent orange?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Alls_Policy

    In a study published in 1996, historian Mitsuyoshi Himeta claims that the Three Alls Policy, sanctioned by Emperor Hirohito himself, was both directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of “more than 2.7 million” Chinese civilians.

    You live in a state that places zero value on human life.

  4. Oh, shit!

    Just published in The Lancet: “Genomic evidence for reinfection with SARS-CoV-2: a case study

    Findings

    The patient had two positive tests for SARS-CoV-2, the first on April 18, 2020, and the second on June 5, 2020, separated by two negative tests done during follow-up in May, 2020. Genomic analysis of SARS-CoV-2 showed genetically significant differences between each variant associated with each instance of infection. The second infection was symptomatically more severe than the first.

    Interpretation

    Genetic discordance of the two SARS-CoV-2 specimens was greater than could be accounted for by short-term in vivo evolution. These findings suggest that the patient was infected by SARS-CoV-2 on two separate occasions by a genetically distinct virus. Thus, previous exposure to SARS-CoV-2 might not guarantee total immunity in all cases. All individuals, whether previously diagnosed with COVID-19 or not, should take identical precautions to avoid infection with SARS-CoV-2. The implications of reinfections could be relevant for vaccine development and application.

    Oh because I picked one that was not self inflicted? Shall I try again from the dozens on the list?

  6. You are right, I am dumb. I should have chosen one of these instead to illustrate my point.

  7. OMagain,

    If having a brain was a choice, would you choose to have one?

    “Let’s see, I know what I will do, I will just type Chinese atrocities into this thing called gloople, and see what it spits out. Hum didde, dum, didd dum, I am so dum…. Oh look what I found, 2.7 million Chinese killed, Hehehehehe, this will get um, …says here something about an Emperor, ha!

    I’m putting as much effort into this as you are.

    Is parody something you teach at the school for paid informers and trolls? If so may I suggest you take a refresher course.

    It’s also a good illustration of the m.o. of your standard creationist. Ignore all valid points until someone makes a mistake then gleefully pounce on that and spend more words on that they you have up until this entire time responding to the facts that disprove your claims.

    Is that something that you teach?

    Anyway, the fact remains that you have literally nothing to say against actual concentration camps operating in the country you call home. And you have nothing to say because we all know they’d take you away too were you to do so. Whereas I’m free to condemn such camps wherever they might be. And somehow you won’t admit that is the case.

    Just saying.

  9. phoodoo: You once again talking with zero knowledge is no surprise at all.
    I would venture to say that there is almost no one on the planet who has more knowledge of this subject than I. Do you know my job?

    But go ahead, keep sticking your chin out and pretending you know things.

    I can admit when I make a mistake. I learn from mine. Do you? Can you?

    Does this oh so important job of yours perhaps involves the letters PSI and FBI by any chance? Are you a double agent spying on the elites as they dream?

    What arrogant twaddle. Nobody on the planet? Well, you are a big bag of ignorance on this forum mate so I doubt that you are a world authority on anything apart from the smell of your finger.

  10. Tom English,

    Hey ho! It’s concerning, but with 30 million+ confirmed cases, possibly 10x that in total, there are bound to be statistical outliers. Let’s hope that’s what it is! It does confound my hypothesis that repeat infection, where it occurs, will be milder, but it does depend on dosage.

    Trump’s immune though, so there’s that …

    Agreed.

    Yeah, he’s going to be marketing his own line of monoclonal antibodies.

  12. phoodoo: As someone in the comments said, the American police would have shot her for her own safety.

    Whereas, collaborator, in China she would have been disappeared and her organs given to a high up in the party or a rich person.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/china-coronavirus-whistleblowers-speak-out-vanish-2020-2

    phoodoo, as a collaborator perhaps you can shine some light on what happened to Xu Zhangrun in the week he was taken? And the others not yet freed? Where are they?

    You can criticize the USA all you like for their coronavirus response but are they disappearing scientists who disagree with the government line? Are they smearing them with fake accusations of prostitution?

  13. I once caught Nonlin quoting an article in the Babylon Bee. “If gold rust what shall the iron do?”

    Trump retweets story from satirical news site
    President Donald Trump, who likes to denounce alleged “fake news,” retweeted a piece of satire Friday about Twitter shutting down over reporting on Joe Biden.

    Retweeting a link entitled “Twitter Shuts Down Entire Network To Slow Spread Of Negative Biden News” – which never happened –Trump said: “Wow, this has never been done in history. This includes his really bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this. Bringing more attention to Sleepy Joe & Big T.”

    Twitter did not do that.

    The story was the from the Babylon Bee, a satirical news site. The motto on the Bee’s Twitter page says it all: “Fake news you can trust.”

  14. Kind of random question for the smart people around here, if you don’t mind letting me know what you think, please. My dog broke his ACL a couple of weeks ago. He’s had it surgically replaced already, and the vet recommended physiotherapy. He had his first session today, but something about it seems fishy to me. Most of the time the therapy consisted on phototherapy and laser. For what I could gather, there’s zero scientific evidence that those treatments do anything at all. There were other red flags, like the fact that they didn’t even give me an invoice for my payment. What serious business does that?

    I know it’s a bit weird to ask this here, but I thought maybe some of you might have some valuable insight about it. The last thing I want to do is to fall prey to the Dunning-Kruger effect, but right now I can’t help being extremely suspicious about these guys. Thoughts, please?
