  1. Sorry to hear about the baby. With all due respect, I still don't see how any of this contradicts anything I've posted. The process is slightly different than I suggested, but it doesn't change the ~85% negative testing rate.
  2. Symptoms of, not positive tests for. Lots of things look like COVID, at least partially because COVID has a fairly broad set of symptoms that most people only get a subset of. This doesn't contradict anything I've posted mate, with the greatest of respect.
  3. Hyper-literal interpretation of sarcasm unacceptable.
  4. Interesting article (multiple sourced): A greatly-increased number of cremation urns are being ordered throughout China this year, giving rise to speculation that the official Chinese death rate might be low by a decimal order of magnitude from the actual number. https://www.newsweek.com/wuhan-covid-19-death-toll-may-tens-thousands-data-cremations-shipments-urns-suggest-1494914
  5. The Chinese are lying, and western countries are inflating the numbers by counting everyone who dies WITH the virus as having died OF the virus. That is, if you turn up at a hospital with terminal cancer and a bullet in your head, and you test positive for the virus before or after death, they count you as a COVID death.
  6. Feel free to point out what's not factually accurate about that post.
  7. Opinions vary. https://worldpopulationreview.com/countries/third-world-countries/ "Because Thailand did not initially join the Allies or the Communism Bloc, it is a Third World country. Thailand is considered to be a developing country or more accurately a New Industrialized Country. This means that Thailand has advanced farther relative to other countries, but has not yet reached the level of modern industrialized nations, such as the Western Nations. A large part of Thailand is still poor and rural." BTW, "get out of quarantine free" cards will only be as good as the tests they use to hand them out. If the tests aren't very accurate, they simply act as super-spreader permission slips. The best solution continues to be to quarantine the sick, the at-risk, and the likely exposed, and let everyone else get on with it. IMO of course.
  8. A guy I knew died about a week ago, and I suspect I had it myself. My mother is a ~90 year old cancer survivor. Because I think the world's reaction to this isn't rational, that doesn't mean I don't know that people die from it. People die from lots of causes that don't give governments an excuse to put everyone under house arrest and engage in fascistic take-overs of economies and businesses.
  9. A nice cup of Thai peaberry coffee from this company in the US: https://theexoticbean.com/organic-shop-coffee/
  10. Sirius/XM Channel 74, BB King's Bluesville. Just finished their Sunday morning acoustic blues show called "Front Porch". Been a smattering of old and new, e.g. Sleepy John Estes, Son Jack Jr., Keb Mo. Now back to regular programming: Albert King - "Let's Have a Natural Ball"
  11. So they don't see a doctor until they get to the hospital, at which point I assume they get tested. Not sure how this means that everyone in hospital is COVID+, but I'm not inclined to argue with you mate Other people maybe. 🙂
  12. Souinds right IIRC. I have her on Facebook but she doesn't post much. I might see if I can raise her on Messenger and check on her.
  13. She nearly died actually. Was badly busted up. Spent a month in hospital in Bangkok (IIRC) until she was well enough to return to Denmark. Multiple surgeries while there and about 2 years of recovery. She's starting to get around a bit now. She was in Pattaya when I was there in February but more or less confined to quarters because she still isn't really walking well. I was escorting a noob so didn't have time to visit her (he said guiltily).
  14. Everywhere it went anyway. It actually wasn't that bad, although we did eventually relegate it to the balcony. 🙂
  15. One afternoon I was sat at my computer, as usual at the time given I was still at least trying to make a living off my business. Anyway, I was on the phone with my partner as I recall, when suddenly a bird appeared in my field of vision. Nothing unusual about that given that I lived on the 15th floor of View Talay 1. However, this bird got bigger and bigger until, yep, it flew right into the condo. Clearly a racing pigeon from a club, and clearly exhausted and hungry, it hung out for about a week. We fed and watered it, and Lady R. gave it a name. I tried contacting the local pigeon racing club etc., emailed them pics of the leg tags, etc., no response. It disappeared as mysteriously as it came. Amazing Thailand.
