This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

There's also the effectively unverifiable assumption I've heard that the unvaccinated are less likely to subject themselves to testing (excepting those that are hospitalized). It might make sense in a gut feeling sort of way, but it's not something that can really be studied in an effective manner.

Our congresspersons have probably bought more Monsanto stock 2 days before this went public.

Don't confuse a non-preferred treatment with an off-label use.

  You know what else?  Horses and dogs drink water.  I hope no one out here thinks they are a horse or a dog and go around drinking water.  Like out the toilet.

Is that a real tweet? I don't use Twitter,  but I think you're lying.

It's a parody of the childish tweet the official @US_FDA did make on August 21st:
"You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it."
When literally billions of humans have been prescribed Ivermectin.

Quote from: slightly edited to remove some repetition and well, uhs
We had just done something absolutely extraordinary. Public health had adopted this lockdown, this quarantine order, for a very large fraction of the population. A healthy quarantine at population scale, I don't think has ever been done before, and we had to justify it. [If] this is not a 3% fatal disease but in fact only 0.2% fatal disease, the costs, the harms of that are enormous. And we've seen the harms... the harms of the lockdown are devastating, orders of magnitude worse than whatever marginal benefit you think you might have gotten from it.
Don't waste an hour on this interview with Jay Bhattacharya. He's a Ph.D. economist and(!) M.D. from Stanford who has done most of his work with the NIH and the FDA. He was involved in studies of Sars1, was a co-author on one of the first studies showing the infection fatality rate of Sars2 was far, far lower than earlier reports (which has since has been verified by hundreds of other studies), and was one of the three authors of the Great Barrington Declaration. So he's clearly unqualified in every possible way when it comes to the pandemic, and you should not follow the link and should instead turn on CNN or listen to your favorite politician to understand the Science amen.

The serious, symptomatic cases of Covid=19 have been declining for the past 3-4 weeks in central Florida.  I was averaging 4-5 per shift the previous month, now it's down to 1-2 per shift and I even had one shift caring for 0 symptomatic Covid-19 patients. That's not to say we didn't have some in the ED on those shifts under the care of others, but it's definitely on the decline. From my own sampling, those that are still coming in with symptomatic infections have almost entriely been the unvaccinated.

But, looking back, we get this information that contradicts the idiots' narrative that Covid-19 is just the sniffles: https://www.healthsystemtracker.org/brief/covid19-and-other-leading-causes-of-death-in-the-us/

In the Movies and Inspiration forum, we've talked about films where Rotten Tomato's critic consensus differs drastically from the audience rating, by up to 30 points or so. It sometimes just reflects a film school graduate's appreciation for technical merits vs. people just wanting a fun story, but a lot of the more extreme examples are clear censorship by the Powers That Be Red and Round, where they delete or ignore negative reviews in slavish service to the big government statist side of the culture wars.

But there's a new film that blows every last record out of the water: As of this post, the critics give it a whopping 92% ... and the audience score is 2%. No, I didn't drop a digit. It's a 46-fold difference.

Why am I posting this in the covid thread? Oh, that. It's the Fauci documentary.
