Really anyone who gets their information from published studies rather than so called fact checking websites.

Also, the claim that mRNA spike protein is found in the blood is not debunked by claiming it's not dangerous.

I did not claim either of those things.

It's like the FDA saying "yeah a few maggots in your food should be fine." It's definitely in there. The maggots in the food, and the spikes in the blood. That's just how it is.

Except it's not.

We've known for a while that that is completely false. All components of these mRNA injections have been found to circulate in the bloodstream, and the spike protein itself could be detected in blood for months.

Who's this 'we'? You and the other Facebook University alumni?

His rhetoric is tired. His only achievement will be to cruel the chances of the GOP in '24 by exacerbating the civil war inside the GOP.

Their memories of being bombed by NATO are still fresh in their minds. I still remember NATO destroying the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, killing innocent people inside.

One wonders whether you also remember the circumstances that led to NATO action.

14 ? 15? Attempts to elect their candidate… speaker elect restrained from physically attacking another member… said member nominating Trump only to get one vote (lowest ever apparently)…. Boebert on TV asking the interviewer if she should put her on the ballot…

Yes, let’s listen to these guys try to convince you they’re the adults in the room.

Absolutely clueless. No answers for the problems facing America, just petty power struggles.

No, because party always comes first for the Democrats.

Your side ran and still support the inveterate liars Herschel Walker and George Santos strictly along party lines. Are you seriously trying to tell us that these are strong or deserving candidates? Physician, heal thyself.

It’s fun watching the Right wingers here try to tell us that everything is fine, that they’re a viable party for forming government, while their party implodes into civil war. They are at the mercy of the extremists and their culture wars because of their historically narrow majority, which ironically is the reason for the small majority in the first place.

When you enter a country knowingly breaking the law and attempt to conceal, lie and use your fame to try and worm your way around the rules, I’m not sure how aggrieved you can seriously be when you’re unceremoniously booted out.

Took the high road. Nice to see after how he was mistreated.

Posted in: Man gets suspended sentence for causing plane to divert after refusing to wear mask See in context

Temyong

Inside a jet plane is an enclosed environment and masks won’t do you any good. The size of the virus is astronomically smaller than the size of particles masks can block. It is like a grain of rice being thrown out of the window. Policy is not really based on science but for control.

Apologies for the length of this reply, but this misinformation has been debunked time and time again,

The virus that causes COVID-19 is about 0.1 micrometer in diameter. (A micrometer (µm) is one one-thousandth of a millimeter.) The holes in woven cloth are visible to the naked eye and may be five to 200 micrometers in diameter. It is counter-intuitive that cloth can be useful in this setting — it’s been compared to putting up a chain-link fence to stop mosquitoes. However, that analogy is wrong in many ways.

According to aerosol science, whenever liquid hangs in air it is technically an aerosol, but other disciplines use the word “droplet” to mean a coarse particle five micrometers or larger, and reserve “aerosol” for fine particles smaller than five micrometers in effective diameter.

When we breathe, talk, eat, cough, sneeze or sing, we emit particles across a range of sizes, both coarse and fine, and the virus is in those particles. Even though there are gaps between the threads in cloth, the threads are usually wider than the gaps.

Also, at this microscopic level, the thread has thickness, or depth, so the gap is more a tunnel than a window. Microfilaments from broken or irregular threads project into the gap. The particle is not like a mosquito, which can redirect itself to avoid obstacles. A particle with momentum will run into a fibre, even though the air stream is diverted around it, like a ball hitting a wall — this is called impaction.

But at the microscopic level, there are two additional processes in play. Particles also fall out of the air — called sedimentation. Some particles are moving randomly and this random motion brings them into contact with fibres — called diffusion. Finally, cloth can be used in multiple layers, adding a second and third gauntlet for the particle to run before it reaches the other side.

The point is not that some particles may penetrate the cloth, but that some are blocked.

The midterms have become a nightmare for the GOP. They've managed to kick off the long predicted civil war between the militant Trump cultist base that they can't afford to ignore and the rest of the party which realizes he's dead in the water and are now jumping ship. Added to that, Murdoch is shifting his focus towards De Santis and none of them have a clue how to deal with an overwhelming rejection of their culture politics by young voters beyond suggesting that the voting age be raised. Grab the popcorn, folks...
