This is very funny.

Does anyone know if this person is actually a doctor?

Or has somehow just managed to get through medical school without noticing how science works?

If someone makes an allegation, one can

(a) ignore it,
(b) conduct experiments to test for it.

Click on it, scroll to a random point, and realise that actually, you are very fortunate to have received an education.


So, should we get special, "other", disposable, people to take it, before we do?

Are people who enter clinical trials "fools"?

We just sponge off their altruism, shall we?
I noticed that after my first Jab, I got into a heated argument with Matthew Shun-Shin, and called him a dimwit, for his advocacy of the Oxford Comma.
Since the second, I have repeatedly lambasted James Howard for his preference for the single quote over the double quote, in Javascript.
I think I am gonna sue the Jab makers.

Money grabbing bastards, working all hours to come up with ways to cut COVID mortality by 90%. It's all part of the conspiracy, I tell you. I would rather be intubated, and my elderly frail relatives die, than have this bill-gates-nanobots!
How can they ...?
Dear @JoshCasper,

Probably because their brains have higher melting points.

Everyone who dies of Covid today, got it from
Suppose on average it takes 10 days from a person being infected, to that person passing it on to the next person in the chain.

Let's say we are about 500 days into the pandemic.

If I get it today, how many people long is that chain that led to me?
The mortality of Covid infection, without vaccination, is around half a percent.

Suppose the Covid I get today, kills me.

How many people in the chain of ~50 that let do me, on average, would you expect to have died from it?

I see Prof Chloroquine has decided to sue Elisabeth Bik for annoying him by pointing out the dubious features in his claims.

A question that I thought was simple, has had enormous pushback from respondents. 50:50 are ardently espousing an answer I consider to be obviously wrong.

Suppose there is a shop which only lets you in if you bring exactly ONE child.
Each person going shopping has two children, and chooses one child to go with them, but ALWAYS takes a boy if they have a boy.

For a randomly chosen customer in the shop, if their accompanying child is a boy, what is the probability that the child at home is a girl?
Let's give it a few days to see how people vote.

Please don't give the answer away, as it will spoil the experience.
