  1. Vaccines? Modern medicine? Average life expectancy was under 40 until 1900. This is a novel virus and the science will catch up with it. Until then...
  2. I suppose you are answering the question as to why any of this matters. But even if there is a political reason, many ballots were cast well before November 3. At this point, the entire theory is only useful for lining the birdcage because what else are we to do with it now? It wasn't too long ago that some people were worried about rushing vaccine development.
  3. "...conspiracy theories have attributes that set them apart from other types of causal explanation. Albeit to varying degrees, they are speculative in that they posit actions that are hidden from public scrutiny, complex in that they postulate the coordination of multiple actors, and resistant to falsification in that they postulate that conspirators use stealth and disinformation to cover up their actions...." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5724570/
  4. Too soon for "human challenge trials" https://www.abc.net.au/news/health/2020-11-24/do-coronavirus-vaccines-prevent-infection-or-disease/12905654
  5. I'm hearing from people on the eastbound Harmony TA that their onboard purchases have been canceled. ???
  6. He is right about the sanitizing. And some of the supermarkets near me have already given up trying to sanitize the carts. It's like they couldn't be bothered with it. Here's a wipe, do it yourself.
  7. It may be true, but it's unsupported by your post. So there's this: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/11/20-3299_article
  8. That "44 cases" study by the airline industry certainly doesn't pass the smell test. Here is the bottom line: air travel is considered "essential" and there is no appetite for overbearing restrictions on flying. It's that simple. If CDC imposed restrictions on airline passengers, there would be howling just as much as when restaurants and bars are shut. CDC is allowing the airlines to voluntarily decide what to do, including filling middle seats if they choose. Hawaiian Airlines is resuming non-stop service between New York, Boston and Honolulu. The scheduled flight tim
  9. Respectfully, I have a different understanding than you do. The virus doesn't care if you are on a cruise ship or at a wedding or in a movie theater. Contact is contact. On an airplane you are in a confined space for long enough to spread the virus. Why don't they test the passengers? All of the arguments I hear here are not persuasive to me. But that doesn't mean I "lack understanding." We just have different impressions.
  10. Airline - dozens of long duration international flights daily from around the world, crews exposed on multiple flights and at multiple layovers. No ongoing restrictions until Nov. 1, 2021. Yeah, I'm going to compare them. It doesn't take long for the virus to infect someone.
  11. They never imposed anything like this on the airlines.
  12. I don't disagree that the managers should have known better. But making false and misleading statements is a violation of securities laws. If there is any merit to this case, I don't see why it shouldn't be pursued.
