Are there any strains that confer super human abilities after being infected ? I don't mind if there's an odd weakness, every origin story has to have that.

I am sure in the next 100t years there will be a strain of Sars-Cov-2 that will spike an ability by chance. But in this early seconds of the virus lifetime it only has managed to achieve negatively:
- your brain becomes ten years older in a week
- you are loosing hair
- you are loosing smell sensitivity

And only with 10% of the ill infected persons the virus can do this.

In the county which I reside, there has been a whopping .0007% of the population infected.

Total.

Germany never had a hard lockdown. You should not flock together with strangers for some weeks ....
But the messaging for guidance is key for success. As it is misguidance for failure.

As follows like during the Fall of the Roman Empire (*):
Intelligence of the people is sinking due to brain damage the virus brings. And the loss of foreign students and expert immigration. This loss of brain power at a point brings you a less capable government. A spiral the american voter chose knowingly from the start.

(*) Loss of brain power during the late Roman Empire was caused by led in drinking water.

NUTS. Relating the Roman Empire, the virus, immigration to a supposedly less cable government in the US is ideological nonsense.

Peter piece of schiff DeFazio will most likely win.

This is the first time in my life I have donated money to a political campaign. I detest DeFazio that much.

Based on the number of tests with positive results? Is there a break down of people having multiple tests, and an error rate? It's supposedly bad and highly contagious, so I'm doubtful of reported low infection rates.

Old School lives in the mountains full of trees. He sees less other american guys in a year than me when taking the tube Hamburg/Germany. 35y ago an indian cult installed a KZ in that state without notice for a decade long. And the .0007% is the guy who visited Tulsa to see Trump.

I was tested for anitbodies about a month ago. Result was negative, but that test has about a 50% false negative rate.
That's an info from earlier times, because the antibodies test has a fail rate of 2%. Which adds up to: 4 % positive tests in a population of only 2% infection rate.

Nowadays the U.S. has 3 million positively tested persons. If the real infection count is 12 times higher than the positively tested count (we can calculate from the dead body count of 130t and assuming 0.3% fatalities rate) you get an antibodies test that is telling you an 80% righteous result. The test is working better everyday in the U.S.

Sounds like bullshit to me.

Yes.

There have been 3 fatalities attributed to covid in my county.

Good that it is not higher, but I doubt the accuracy of the numbers given likely flaws in reporting. I think it is likely to be "better".

Also, with regards to your bio-terrorist, I had forgotten it was Oregon. I was thinking it was California, although the entire coast is now resembling a Dick plot.

There were fake hunting tags going around at the time to "Bag One Rajneesh."

Bag One.... Bhagwan.... get it? :wink:

The Rajneeshies would take buses to Portland and pick up all the homeless people and register them to vote in Umatilla County to try and swing elections. You could always tell a Rajneeshie because they dressed all in red. It was fun times in Oregon.

Bhagwan was big in Germany. The girl friend of my friend visited Oregon for a week to see his delightful smile for a few seconds out of one of his 10 Rolls Royce. We also had to hear the gurus lectures from tape afterwards.

Sheela works for elderly care in Switzerland. She defensively doesn't know how she got there to organize the crime.

The video covered an election which gained them a lot of control, but I don't recall if they mentioned busing. Seems like more fun than now.

What exists is not a virus pandemic but an enemy propaganda. COVID-19 propaganda is propagated by your enemies.

You are experiencing the highest art of warfare. The highest form of war involves deception of the highest degree and doesn't have to involve bullets. It may involve mass global food shortage.
Black Lives Matter is funded by your enemies consisting of mainstream media, gigantic corporations, george soros, bill gates, and governments.
Your enemies are the global controllers. The global controllers are waging a deceptive war against individuals.
It's a war by propaganda.

Governments and the police sanction Black Lives Matter riots while suppressing other kinds of protests under the pretense of suppressing pandemic. Black Lives Matter is an army against humanity.

You are deceived into thinking that your enemies are your friends. When you think your enemies are your friends, they can take your life or enslave you without beating you or shooting you.

Your enemies cut down food supply through lockdown and want you to starve to death or eat insects. Once your enemies control your food, they can control you.

My investigation of the so-called COVID deaths // The conclusion is that virus is a huge hoax.

One cult is as good as another. Adolescents, and certain weak, defective adults, will fall for any cult that comes along, whether it's Rajneeshpuram, Jimmy Jones, or Democrat Woke circle-jerk.

The one thing they all have in common is the desperate need for deprogramming.

This message is approved by ulenrich :)

You can use as many sociological / economical / psychological / biological theories as you want. This makes your view on the world more free. As long as you don't forget the deprogramming with an opposing theory ...

This only works if you are using explicitly thoughts from theories you know the whole theory of and the margins where another theory works better!

President Trump’s advisers undercut the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, over the weekend, anonymously providing details to various news outlets about statements he had made early in the coronavirus outbreak that they said were inaccurate.

Astounding. The administration is smearing it's own experts. If they honestly thought he was wrong, they would fire him and replace him with someone better. But they know that nobody would take that seriously.

@richk449
If I was citizen of the U.S. I would call every politician who supports his presidency a traitor. Like the Republican Party members of the Lincoln project do with their ads. As Kelly Ann Conway doesn't stop supporting Trump, I cannot understand her husband who is in this project why he doesn't divorce.
