Missed y2k and a few end-of-world prophecies.

Y2K is the only one people predicted 'end of the world' for and this guy didn't even get the arm patch. COVID has 2.85 million official deaths in a year and a half. Pretty big numbers for a disease in an era with antibiotics, antiviral medication, vaccines, instantaneous communication, high manufacturing output, and knowledge of the importance of public sanitation. But whatever. If you acknowledge that the situation is bad then you are a coward and gay to these people. It all comes down to making people know you are brave so no one will think you are a gay.

Maya 2012.

Remember when you were freaking out and calling for border shutdowns during that Ebola outbreak in Africa? I'm glad we can look back and laugh together at how utterly irrational you were being.

Would adding Hale-Bopp 1997 be in poor taste?

Covid: Brazil has more than 4,000 deaths in 24 hours for first time
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-56657818

Hospitals are overcrowded, with people dying as they wait for treatment in some cities, and the health system is on the brink of collapse in many areas.

The country's total death toll is now almost 337,000, second only to the US.

But President Jair Bolsonaro continues to oppose any lockdown measures to curb the outbreak.

He argues that the damage to the economy would be worse than the effects of the virus itself, and has tried to reverse some of the restrictions imposed by local authorities in the courts.

The number of U.S. suicides fell nearly 6% last year amid the coronavirus pandemic — the largest annual decline in at least four decades, according to preliminary government data.

Death certificates are still coming in and the count could rise. But officials expect a substantial decline will endure, despite worries that COVID-19 could lead to more suicides.

People last year were screaming about an epidemic of suicides over the economy. It's interesting to learn that the overall rate may have dropped. Can't wait to bring that up for sure to the people who harped on about that, who coincidentally ended up not committing suicide themselves. They already don't really have an answer for the major corporate profiteering.

I don't think it should be used to discount lives and livelihoods ruined during 2020 though. Or ongoing effects of mental stress that may manifest later.

As a kid I may have enjoyed a year of not having to deal with the constant downpour of bullshit from other kids. It would have probably gotten old eventually, though. I'd look forward to going back, but not before the vaccinations had all rolled out wtf.

The top comment on reddit was something like "It turns out other people were the problem". Which I think might be on the right track.

“Yippee!!!”: Emails Show Trump Appointees Celebrating Lying to the Public About COVID-19

Too long and formatted to repost here, but fairly condemning.

Efforts by the Trump administration to push virus misinformation weren't exactly secret in 2020. Pressure was exerted across various departments. Do you really need a document signed in triplicate by three witnesses and analyzed for several months by cybersecurity experts to believe that one of Trump's men would write a tasteless email amidst their efforts to make the virus smell like a rose.

All pales into nothing compared with the disinformation peddled in the runup to the attack on Iraq.

Cheney was running private email servers, 20 million white house emails 'lost' etc.

The Republican White House tweaking expert reports to suit their agenda seems to be SOP.

i'm just pointing out that one media posting about another media posting about an email supposedly obtained by a house committee which was allegedly written by member of a certain political camp all parties involved spent 5+ of last years shitting on means exactly nothing. unless, of course, it was sufficiently investigated.

At the time I read it, the people involved neither confirmed nor denied, and refused to talk to the press? "Hey I didn't write this and I think an investigation will find that I didn't" shouldn't be too difficult, unless of course he did write it which is probably the more likely of the two. Why are you so doubtful that a man who strove to achieve a specific objective was elated when that objective is met. What is this all of a sudden, really?

"Sure I'll take a bunch of stuff at face value on the forum, but this...THIS pushes the limits of credibility!"

Donald Trump appointees with no experience in public health celebrated when they managed to wrangle changes in warnings and reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in order to underplay the danger of COVID-19, according to emails obtained by a House subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis.

“Yippee!!!” gushed Paul Alexander, science adviser to the Department of Health and Human Services, to HHS public affairs chief Michael Caputo after he pressured the CDC to modify warnings about coronavirus risks to young people, according to one of the emails.

Alexander also plotted with Dr. Scott Atlas, the controversial White House coronavirus adviser, to help him write an opinion article dismissing a CDC report on risks to young people as “timed for the election.” Alexander added in the email that the point of the op-ed would be to “blunt the edge” of the CDC report.

More than 560,000 Americans have died of COVID-19 since the pandemic began. Trump’s COVID-19 task force leader, Dr. Deborah Birx, said last month that “hundreds of thousands” of those lives could have been saved had the Trump administration followed CDC advice and provided “consistent messaging” about social distancing, masks and business restrictions.
In another email correspondence, Caputo told Alexander last May: “I know the president wants us to enumerate the economic cost of not reopening. We need solid estimates to be able to say something like: 50,000 more cancer deaths! 40,000 more heart attacks! 25,000 more suicides!”

Caputo added: “You need to take ownership of these numbers. This is singularly important to what you and I want to achieve.”

Caputo, a onetime top official in Trump’s 2016 campaign, has no medical or scientific background. He claimed at the time that his battle against CDC information was a defense against the imagined “deep state” trying to undermine Trump.

On my reading things are going really fucking badly.

Globally we're on the cusp of a new peak, each trough exceeds the pre-preceding peak.

And India is proper fucked, the Ganges isn't going to cope with the bodies

https://i.imgur.com/bHfd9ww.png

I'd like to know how it is when people coming into Aus are supposed to have a negative test, yet they're arriving infected.
Hospitalisations have gone up since a negative test was mandated.

https://i.imgur.com/gvUFCkR.png

I'm guessing Indian test certificates aren't really trustworthy.

Wuhan lab leak is my preferred answer, apparently they do make chimera viruses which survive longer in a lab so are easier to experiment on - but are also more transmissible and don't need to evolve and adapt.

The wet market was a secondary transmission site.

Anyway, this was all suggested six months ago.
