Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Well done Adam.

On a ( slightly ) related note, it's possible to raise your blood oxygen level by breathing in through your nose and out through pursed lips. I think this has the effect of raising the air pressure in your lungs and increasing oxygen uptake.

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

The govt daily briefing says that the new variant is more dangerous than the original, with mortality rate up from 1% to 1.3%, and some studies indicate it could be even higher. Apparently the hospital mortality rate is unchanged, so I'm guessing that hospital treatment negates the extra danger, per...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Does the question "with covid or from covid ?" become more relevant now that it has spread a lot further into the population ? I suspect it does, and that the covid death stats will become a less reliable indicator as it carries on spreading. The "excess deaths" figure might be m...

Re: 30 minute summary of the big picture

Perhaps I'm missing something important, but I can't help thinking that a big investment in nuclear power some decades ago would have left us in a much better situation.

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

So, 50% of people will, in fact, make it to 89 and BEYOND At last. So now you've grasped the "life expectancy" thing, how do you feel about this: Since when did people get so entitled thinking they have a God given right to live past 82, and that everyone should suffer for that right? Rea...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Ok, I am clearly going to need to spell this out for you. If you are 80, you have a one in 2 chance of making to, say 90. In other words, 50% of 80 year olds will not make it to 90. Which really is not surprising. Would you like to guess why? Go on you know you can if you try. Okay, I'll spell that...

Re: Saudi Arabia to build 150km linear city

I suppose that if conditions made it impossible to live on the surface a mostly underground city might be useful.

Re: Saudi Arabia to build 150km linear city

Why build a linear city ? Circular would be more sensible. Unless you want a city easily controlled with barriers. Ghettos one end, Royalty the other, checkpoints in between.
