Gosh Darn it.  Some of you have forgotten that getting serious on the web is just silly.  Let's share.  Let's play nice.

it's also not proven that it DOESN'T work
is double negative.  The Donald would be proud of you.  (And technically not possible.)  The absence of evidence is the absence of evidence and proves only that there is an absence of evidence.  See how logical double negatives are?

The big island number slowly climb but we're still under 10 active cases with no deaths or hospitalizations.

Here's a copy of the 4-7-20 Health Department Notice:

"This is a Civil Defense message.

This is a Coronavirus informational update for Tuesday morning, April 7th.

On the COVID-19 status, the total number of people tested positive for Hawaii Island is 26.  From this, 21 have recovered and cleared by the Department of Health.  The 5 who remains active are quarantined at home and monitored by the Department of Health.  At this date for Hawaii no one had to be hospitalized because of infection by the virus.

You are asked to do your share to prevent of the COVID-19 virus.  Heed the policies of ‘Stay at Home’, social distancing, gatherings and cleanliness.  And for now just say ‘hi’.  To all, practice everyday measures of prevention and keep yourself physically and emotionally healthy.  Do stay connected with your Kupunas, especially at these difficult times.

Thank you very much for listening and look for the full moon tonight, the biggest and brightest of the year.   

This is your Hawaii County Civil Defense."

I just might see Costco Thursday morning.

Yes mikenash.  Yes.  And enjoying it.  I find this site and many of the threads to be a nice start to the morning.  And the snowman18 is right up there as far as the enlightenment factor goes.  I may not agree with many of his reveals but I appreciate his faith in his own views. 

Rant on, brothers.

Hey glort,

Those numbers are very close to mine.  The page you showed doesn't subtract the out of isolation or "cured" people - about 18 which leaves about 5 active cases on the big island.  No deaths or hospitalization in Hawaii County - each island is a county.  And always throw in the third world math factor.

Oahu is a completely different animal with almost a million people there to our 186,000 and then you throw in their 186 sq miles to our 4,000.  Really different place.


Do you actually believe all that stuff or are you just teasing us with the stuff Fox News thought was a bit too out there?

What Fox news misses our girl Sarah will reveal to us no matter the personal cost (million or multi-million dollar book deals not included).

I once had six beers in the morning and felt much better the next day.  I'm cured.  I'm cured.  I'm cured!  Double blind randomized tests are for whips and little people that lack faith in their ideas. 

We're down to five active cases on the Big Island.  No one has gone to the hospital yet for Covid 19 but there have been three deaths on the other islands.

Boris, it would seem, isn't doing so well.  I hope your medical team gets it turned around. 

You know; I'm not going to Costco today or tomorrow.  Even isolated here on an island it's still pretty scary.  And poor Prince Charles.  Yikes, he's 4 years younger than I am.

Oh Yeah!  Just because you showed me yours I'm showing you mine.


Now are you actually going to take the word of thousands, maybe millions of people on Publicly circulated often blood thirsty competitive media all over the world or a half dozen "citizen" reporters on YouTube?

I wonder where they got their video?  (Is that Sarah Palin without makeup.)

I don't think the flat earthers will make much headway as a result of this temporary inconvenience but there will be changes for sure.  The British courts were loading the New World with indentured servants right up to the US revolutionary war.  The plague has over a 50% death rate when untreated.  That's at least 50 times greater than this scary inconvenience we're going through now. 

Is Australia better off or not now that the government doesn't require 50% of replacement parts on autos be manufactured in Australia?  I think we'll see some seeds similar to this happen in countries that actually hear the wake up call.

Have you noticed the air quality pictures.  At least we know have good evidence that bad air is our work and not a natural cycle caused by a wobbly planet or star.  Don't we?

Wow snowman18.  I didn't realize what an old stick in the mud conservative I am until I read your eye popping post.  Thanks.  I'll be sending them to a couple of friends that call me libratardacaded.

Nope; Not me.

My guess would be to reduce chips of paint being knocked off and to add a bit of snap to the appearance. 

What was the factory solution?

Who will win the hearts of these new countries as they come out of this pandemic?  The sellers of "cool", "fast", "easy", "sexy" and WANT or the ideas of "self sufficiency", "local", "repairable" and of course "work"?  Kinda scary.

I think it somewhat depends on how many die.  And how soon the next one hits.  It's like using the same plans to build a replacement house of one that burned or flooded.  Unless you want to experience another chapter of what put your back up against the wall you have to make a few changes.

I still shop a bit at Walmart.  I admire their training program.  Will they start shopping the world?  Will governments start requiring a certain percentage of goods be manufactured in the home country?  Will the wild pony / work horse market economy start getting some stronger bridles?  Let's not shoot the horse because the barn burned down.

Stay tuned boys and girls for next weeks show.  New settings?  New stars? 

I have only been off the farm twice in the last week (further than I can walk) and it looks like I may be in full hermit mode this coming few weeks.  Can you imagine being trapped in an apartment in a 250 apartment complex?  Well, I'm going over to another channel now to see how much of Rome burned last night. 


PS:  The big island still has less than 20 active cases and has yet to have someone put in the hospital for C-19.

Is this website amazing or what?

I'm kinda of with glort on this sea lever rise.  While there is little doubt in my mind that the water is rising I know nothing I saw, write or substantial information I provide some folks just ain't gonna buy it.  So why bother.

Some of us like street language.  I don't know why but I'm sure it's some sort of mality in our moral composition.  No Shoe Polish!

The Big Island of Hawaii has a few more verified cases but no one has gone to the hospital as of yet diagnosed with C-19.  T. Gabbard is working hard to keep us informed and tests are still very rationed.  New, faster, more reliable tests are on the way.

Where are people spitting on others?

I'm concerned that the cleaver wealthy and their adversaries are going to rob the treasure chests that are being opened by our governments.  It smells like corporations are getting two dollars for ever single dollar that goes to the people directly here in the states.  The hypocrisy of the conservative arena is simply amazing.  Socialistic actions are devastating unless it's going into their pockets.

As for the numbers.  The death numbers are for people that actually show significant symptoms not the entire population.  This is why we lose well below 1% of the population to the annual flu.  3 million would be 1% of the population in the states while we lose <40,000.  A crazy number that still has me falling backwards.

Be careful.

I'm pretty sure I like the poem more.  ::)

I know I read all of it. 

Thank you glort for putting the star things on the paragraph topic sentence.  They pulled me into two more of the paragraphs.  Pretty dark, brother.

The City of Miami is spending $400 million on raising roads and installing pumps.  Reminds me of the stories about the building of Holland.  Miami has a population of 463+ thousand divided into $400,000,000 = $863 apiece.  If it works then they'll spend some real money.

We're up to 18 verified C-19 people with 11 of them being clean for 14 days.  The other 7 are in home quarantine.  No hospitalizations as of yet.  This is out of a population of 186+ thousand.  A young fellow wanted to return from New Jersey to help with the farm and I had to say no.

This is a wake up call for many people.  I think we're going to see some pretty significant changes in Western lifestyle people.  Facing mortality is just a first step.

Shall we put our little gracy cells together and see if we can predict those changes?

Less or more risk taking? "I could be dead from a virus in two weeks.  Yeah, give me that rock climbing gear."

"Money in the stock market?  It all just runs away when times get tough."


Eating meat?

Will we move our manufacturing base back to this country? 

Political winners / losers?
