  1. I asked whether hospitals were receiving a payment for reporting Covid-19 deaths in a status. I asked this because of the sketchy circumstances surrounding the sole Covid-19 death in the town where I live. I was told hospitals do receive a payment.
  2. I've not seen that Fox New video. And I haven't watched even one minute of Fox News in over two years. But nice try.
  3. I was responding to a poster who asked a question. This line of conversation came from a status in which I pointed out that a 50-something year old woman in my town was on hospice care, dying from cancer. She had a heart attack at home and was resuscitated. They took her to the hospital where she died. The hospital reported it as a Covid-19 death. Is this a case of over-reporting?
  4. If the government pays a stipend to hospitals for Covid deaths, then hospitals will liberally report Covid deaths. You realize that's pretty much how all people and organizations operate, right? If something is incentivized, it will tend to increase.
  5. Ha ha! That's exactly what I was thinking. On the far side it seems like they have people far enough to the right (even with the top of the down ramp) that there wouldn't be a problem. But some of those folks on the near side have more faith in the guy than I would.
  6. No front page banner for Cerni??  Punters get no respect.

      This positionism shall not stand, man.

  7. They come in different sizes. The one I have is smaller than those shown in Knap's video above. It wouldn't produce enough light for a porch.
  8. This is comparing apples to oranges since (presumably) the car would have killed her anyway. A better example would be pneumonia. Quite a few patients with serious illnesses have pneumonia at their end stage. Was it the pneumonia that killed them, or the underlying disease? Do hospitals record the cause of death as a pneumonia death? But the real point I made in that status that apparently got your goat is that, while I suspect there is some under-reporting of Covid-19 deaths, I'd guess there's probably even more over-reporting. Any time there's money involved it skews the statistics. If hospitals are getting additional funds for Covid-19 deaths, then the numbers will be inflated somewhat. We may never end up with accurate counts of the Covid-19 deaths--except for the comparison with normal death rate statistics. And even those will be affected somewhat by the shutdown and alteration of normal activities for the past couple of months.
  9. ha ha! Yeah, they are pretty cool. A client gifted me one just a couple weeks ago for a project we're working on.
  10. Gee whiz. Thanks for using small words so the humble rabble like myself can feebly attempt to understand the wisdom of your superior intellect.
  11. Looks like they found the right trainer. I LIKE some of those exercises!
  12. Ha ha! The OP video was awesome!
