Just a reminder to the disc golf community to take things serious and now is not the time to let our guard down.

Lol ok 14 minutes in he claims that we still dont have trials for chloroquin. The Trump myth that has been debunked in dozends of trials. Does he get his news from Fox?

LOOOL ok at 20 minutes he starts peddling his wunder immune system booster pills. Hello Alex Jones.

It really is staggering how much crap he spews. It’s good that he makes it clear that he’s openly speculating by constantly saying “maybe” and “who knows”, but then you have to ask yourself, why the hell am I wasting my time with this? Anyone can make up their own narrative completely divorced from science and data and post it online.

That one video from a few weeks ago where he postulated that a 15% infection rate was good enough for herd immunity was especially egregious. He opened his next video by apologizing for it, but then just plows ahead with more nonsense. Pretty dangerous if people are following this guy as if he’s an authority.

Orange is me. You're stringing together quite a chain of assumptions to get to that conclusion.

i must say it's funny that people have so much faith that "COVID" is real and and a serious problem when they haven't experienced any evidence of it in real life.

I don't know anyone who ever died in a plane crash. Plane crashes are obviously fake.

I didn't know anyone who died on 9/11/01. Clearly that's all fake also

Some statements are so stupid they don’t warrant any response.

There's plenty of groupthink to go around on both sides. People on both sides seem bent on their version, with a complete willingness to ignore any data that doesn't support their view.

Take the trajectory of infections. A novel virus released on a virgin population should grow exponentially until one of two things happen, you reach herd immunity, or there is an intervention, either medically or socially. This has been the basis of all the dire projections released early on. Yet here we are in September and things haven't exactly happened as expected. Sweden enacted minimal interventions in March and have done nothing since. Yet their cases have plateaued and plummeted. They are now one of the safest countries to be in europe. Similar trends are observable in the US. Many of the southern states dropped their lockdowns in June. Daily cases predictably began growing exponentially but then unexpectedly plateaued in July and have dropped significantly since then.

This should not happen. It goes against all of the science about the spread of a novel virus. If you don't do anything it should grow exponentially. Have we seen any explanations in any of the media or from any of the covid tsars? Absolutely not. Any reasonable explanation goes weakens the lockdown narrative. We were constantly reminded in the past of why these places were "doing it wrong", yet now when things turn out differently than expected, there is silence.

As an aside, some good news about masks:
