Dan Bongino [Ep. 1262] reports a theory that the anomalous drop in cases after the lock-downs ended may be attributed to half the population having immunity gained from common cold[s].

No transcript; it was in here somewhere

The lock-downs eased a week ago. It can take up to 2 weeks for symptoms to appear, and certainly much longer for a new outbreak of spread. My explanation is math and time.

Also, sunlight.

Wisconsin did more than ease the restrictions, and a little over 2 weeks ago. And now we're seeing record cases and deaths. That's from the medical journal DUH. The real question, given that the originally stated (and most reasonable) goal of all the lockdowns was to buy time and flatten the curve, is can they sustain it? The hospital 20 miles from me has 6 ICU beds. Let's be stupidly optimistic and say people only need a week on a ventilator before they're magically better- that means one new bad case a day will overwhelm the hospital. Which is in a city of over 30,000, and the surrounding region's population nearly doubles in the summer.

We've got to do it, but it sucks. Me, I'm just thrilled with the idea that it's been spreading faster than we thought an most cases are asymptomatic. That, and the news that surfaces are bad at transmitting it. That's cool.

Did they get those things tuned up so they aren't [effectively] a death sentence? I think I heard that they were using too high a pressure or something.

If I understand the mechanism involved, oxygenating the blood is more utile. Unless the Healight™ is added. That must work because the press hated on it.

My speculation is that a vent is not useful beyond a week, and only useful as a very last ditch effort when someone cannot breath on their own. It weakens the body's respiratory muscles from the moment it's switched on, so if the underlying reason a person couldn't breath was lack of respiratory endurance, it makes the problem worse.

A case where a vent might help is if a person normally has enough respiratory endurance at rest to survive, but is battling infection which has raised the amount of effort needed to breath at rest. If that person can beat the infection within a few days, and return to normal breathing effort, a vent can help.

My grandfather went to the hospital with a broken leg, was given a UTI and C-diff while there. He then went on a vent for about a week since his base level ability to breath was only adequate to function at rest. When the vent was removed (several times), he didn't have the endurance to breath.

The main takeaway; people should take some responsibility for their own health by training themselves to a level of health capable of handling slightly above resting conditions, and not being obese. These are conditions most people are capable of addressing.

My personal victory the last few days was installing an in-window air conditioner. From the wheelbarrow I managed to press it overhead without falling over backward.

This isn't the first time in my memory that cities have burned. But circumstances are different, and there are still six months until we can expect any respite. It appears that the 'boogaloo' isn't left vs right, but left vs the State. I can't seeing that taking six months, so what's next? Alien Invasion hoax?

Hong Kong is falling. But they pioneered the use of back-pack leaf blowers against tear gas.

edit:
I listened to Scott Adams Episode 1009. He commented that in a country with '50 Trillion' guns (his estimate), why weren't there any used. Tim Pool showed a screenshot from the video of a white van impersonating a C-130 Puff the Magic Dragon.

I headed up to PDX at 4:30pm last night to help the friend I sold the Prius to. The problem was that it was out of gas. Traffic was light and pleasant, but I learned that PDX is still not "open".

Then I visited another friend who lives somewhat close to the rioting. Since I don't follow news, I had no idea it had been happening. We got to watch areal views of the crowd movement to see how close they were coming.

I have a feeling one day I'll have a place in Montana.
