So now this administration says the CDC isn't the right place to collect data on coronavirus hospitalizations, and instead will put it in a new database, not open to researchers, at the political level.

Vote these dolts out of office.

"Cancel Toxic Culture" is great as far as I'm concerned. The "toxins" seem to be whining a lot about it, of course. ^_^

Recent Covid-19 studies suggest that:
1. Human Covid-19 antibody response is short-lived,
2. Covid-19 can cause permanent damage to the brain, heart, kidneys, and liver.

This probably means that:
1. Populations won't develop "herd immunity".
2. Covid-19 vaccines might not work for long.
3. A person can get Covid-19 multiple times, and each instance can add more permanent organ damage.

If the idiot Repugnicans had encouraged everyone to wear face coverings and practice social distancing, their re-opening (aka re-election) plans might have had some chance of success. But, no, that would have made too much sense. Incredible morons, the whole lot of them.

Simple, safe, effective plasma shot can prevent Covid-19. But there's no money in it, so no one will fund it. Capitalism at its finest.

**Severe brain damage possible even with mild coronavirus symptoms**

"According to British neurologists, COVID-19 can cause serious damage to the brain and central nervous system, causing psychosis, paralysis and strokes, which are often detected in their late stages."

I wonder if the National Guard will have to clear Trump out of the White House with tear gas, rubber bullets, and helicopter rotor wash?

I have added Japanese people to the short list of things I really like, right after cats.

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.

I just had an idea for a social distancing belt. It has lots of little extendable rods with cattle prods on the ends. hm, or maybe an umbrella...

Make your own cat robot! I knew 3D printers would eventually be good for something.

Trump leads a GOP eager to sacrifice the health and lives of the American people for their own reelection. Traitors, every one.

Germany is the first major world economy to phase out coal and nuclear power. (Merkel has a physics degree.)

Not wearing a face covering during a coronavirus outbreak is like a badge of stupidity. At least we get to see who the really dumb ones are.

European police crack encrypted phone network, arrest hundreds of criminals including high-level organized crime figures.

K-pop fans keep pranking neo-fascists in various creative ways. Gotta love it. How long before Trump adds K-pop to his Antifa delusion?

Amazing. Quantum background noise can alter the position of a macro-sized object, in this case a 40 kilogram mirror at LIGO. This means that quantum randomness can affect human-scale phenomena. Holy Schrodinger!
