    Like I said, **** you and your superiority complex.

    C) Nice that you vetted the data source so carefully, but dig a little into the article and then tell me what it implies. The article discusses the data source. That picture agrees with their finding that about 2% of the people who responded to a facebook survey said they had a PhD, and that 0.46% of the people who responded saying they were hesitant to get a covid vaccine also said they had a PhDs (in something).
    So does it actually prove that 23% of people with PhD's were hesitant to get a COVID vaccine prior to March? And if it does, in your opinion, what does that mean?

    edit:
    I hadn't read the below quote before I posted, so I didn't realize you had misunderstood the implications of that paper. It was supposed to be joking, but now it seems arrogant. I apologize, but it doesn't say, imply, or demonstrate what you seem to think it does.

    Doctors only make up .25% of our population.

    Since you guys are so intelligent, do the math.

    It amazes me how easy it is to hand you guys your asses. And you think you are the smart ones. LOL

    I'm actually getting bored of owning you guys with facts vs your feelings. Have fun in your circle jerk.

    I so much admire that you still have the energy to dig into this stuff. I'd assume you are great at your job because of these curiosities. I don't have the energy anymore when it comes to most things Covid. Although I must admit I dug into some ivermectin meta-analysis the other day because it's a topic I haven't explored. The data was horrible and how the findings were presented was downright misleading. After that I've seen a few other ivermectin is the best thing for Covid "studies" or infographics but I don't have the energy to look into them all, as I figure it's more of the same, just like the demographic data this gentleman was posting. I enjoy having you ITT because you do the work I am too lazy to do. And I realize part of that is probably just you get through it quicker being more intelligent, but still, appreciated. May your Volvo keep you safe for us.

    Thanks. Could be I just get bored reviewing pharma data after about 30 minutes and need a lot of breaks lol.

    What I didn't realize before my now snarky sounding post was that he, and apparently a few other people, look at the graph and think it says 23.9% of the people who were hesitant to get the vaccine had a PhD. How could that be possible? It does kind of say 23.9% of people with PhD's were still hesitant to get a COVID vaccine in March.

    To me, it says .46% of the people who said they were still hesitant to get the vaccine on a facebook survey also said they had a PhD. So 1 in 200 people who didn't want to get the vaccine and were willing to say that also said they had a PhD. I think the data source is reasonable and the group and CMU is probably very good at looking at their data. But even if I believe it's accurate, it doesn't mean much until you spin it. I'll be interested to see how it evolves though, because that may tell us something about how rigid people can be in their thinking.

    Thanks too for the kind safety wish, but my kids have the Volvo's. How'd you even remember the Volvo thing though? Impressive! I've still got my wife's 2014 hand me down Durango, and I like it. It has the ventilated front seats for our NC summers and I can abuse it and not care.

    You would have gotten a kick out of the Ivermectin infographic that was floating around the misc not long ago. Had about 20 "studies" which varried in sample size from single digits to hundreds. The larger studies actually showed zero to negative effect of ivermectin in treating Covid yet the infographic said something to the effect of 70-80% effective based upon the fact that 70-80% of the studies showed positive effect, meanwhile total patient effect was probably insignificant at best if patient data was pooled. I didn't even bother to do the math or to look into the individual "studies" once I saw how the data was being presented. Yet 90% of miscers instantly grabbed onto it as truth and absolute reason ivermectin is effective at treating Covid. That same infographic was shared in these forums for days. Again, the vulnerable to misinformation sharing with others vulnerable to misinformation.

    You can definitely get a Volvo for yourself with cooled seats. You deserve it. Treat yourself.

    France probably did that because they are not able to contain the level of socialist resistance they are seeing. Don’t need anymore crazy’s going there, it’s been intense. I guess those type of hooligans are everywhere…. People that think they should be able to decide their own medical decisions or caste. SMH

    People are becoming crazier and crazier if it's even possible. Antivaxxers saying they hope vaxxed will die and the vaxxed saying the antivaxxers shouldn't get medical care. I'm not even talking about just the misc but mainstream media. It is just insane. I love Jimmy Kimmel but how can he say even jokingly that people who are not vaccinated should die at the side of the road? I don't have TV so I don't really know what's going on but I see little clips and I'm shocked. I thought it was just misc but it's not.
    If someone hopes me to die, I would never listen to them. I pretty much block 99% of the misc out for that reason. But do they think they'll get people vaccinated by saying hope they'll die if they don't? Like that's a good stragedy? I want you to do something so I persuade you by saying I hope you die if you don't. Do you think anyone would listen someone like that after that. Like ever? About anything? I wouldn't.
    I know people are saying things out of frustration too but I don't think media or people in charge should show that.

I love Jimmy Kimmel but how can he say even jokingly that people who are not vaccinated should die at the side of the road? I don't have TV so I don't really know what's going on but I see little clips and I'm shocked. I thought it was just misc but it's not.
    If someone hopes me to die, I would never listen to them. I pretty much block 99% of the misc out for that reason. But do they think they'll get people vaccinated by saying hope they'll die if they don't? Like that's a good stragedy? I want you to do something so I persuade you by saying I hope you die if you don't. Do you think anyone would listen someone like that after that. Like ever? About anything? I wouldn't.
    I know people are saying things out of frustration too but I don't think media or people in charge should show that.

    I agree it's sad to see the division and hatred.





    Rhetorical question

    If there is only 1 ICU bed available. A Heart attack patient and an unvaxxed Covid patient show up at the same time buth requiring it ASAP, who gets the bed?

    that wont happen

    covid beds are already spoken for, even if empty. would be best to have some ER staff chime in.

    the heart attack patient will have to wait for an ICU bed and the covid patient for a covid ICU bed

    Well I could ask the same rhetorical question what if there's a person needing ICU cos lungs collapsing, should the smoker get it or the one who never smoked?

    Or two heart attacks and one person is obese and another one a gym rat? Are we treating the gym rat because he has made better life choices?

    I'm all for it.

    This was my point. If you call someone an idiot, do you think they'll ever listen to you? I wouldn't.
    So my point is what are people trying to accomplish by calling people they are arguing with names, hoping they die etc. Like what's the point?

    I wasn't calling them idiot for not agreeing with me and my opinion, i was calling them that for the way in which they argue 1 way or the other.
    We seem to have 2 tribes and no gray area, and i occupy the middle ground or gray area.
    I have read the science , talked to as many people as i could and have ideas and thoughts, but i do not really care what others do because i know my body very very well.
    A person could have the best , most compelling argument ever constructed and still a group will shrug and say, eh no bueno.
    18 months into this, why bother!?

    Just frustration with the other side. The reality is at this point nobody on either side is going to change their minds regardless of what they see or how they are treated at this point,

    That's why I don't argue with people who are that level. I can't lower myself any lower lol.

    Can you imagine Jordan Peterson arguing with someone and the other person is trying to beat Jordan with an argument and you're holding onto your seat just to hear Jordan's rebuttal..thinking now he's going destroy his opponent and Jordan goes "you're and old ugly hag who will die alone". It would be funny though..

    I know it's frustration and I doubt anyone really wants anyone to die etc. but it's not getting better, it's just getting worse to a level that's scary.
