Re: [Phys-L] Awareness and the Most Vulnerable Coronavirus Population

Just my thoughts. Curious what others think...

I think we need a culture list that is populated by physicists. One of the main reasons I like phys-l is that it has permitted somewhat off list posts.

I was kicked off tap-l twice, the second time banned forever. The first time I clashed w/ the previous list owner regarding the success of a US fighter. which, IIRC, he claimed won the war. I pointed out that the Soviet army essentially won the war when they won the battle of Kursk, which was before the Normandy invasion. Later a poster asked for equipment donations for the Boy Scouts. I posted that I would not do, so as they were a homophobic organization. That was the last straw. As you all, I assume know, the BSA has filed chapter 11, to protect themselves from abuse claims. This is, I think, an example of Freud’s reaction formation.

One question I have regarding Bill’s claim that homosexually oriented persons are more vulnerable to covid, why?

bc. one of the more guilty of posting “off list”. BTW, he’s added more to his covid site, and expects to do some major date upping, as about a week has passed since...

And regarding JD’s importance of unknown cases: ”As many as half of those with the coronavirus could be asymptomatic, Fauci says.”
