He started this thread about the Chinese coronavirus asking if people are worried about it. The consensus seems to be that it is a good idea to be aware of the situation, but governments and healthcare workers managed to contain other outbreaks like Ebola and SARS.
It seems like he’s determined to stir up some panic somehow or other.
Post 7, he says it’s a bad idea to try something dangerous for the first time. How the hell does possibly having a snowboarding accident have anything to do with a virus? He also suggests taking antibiotics as a preventative measure, which is not only useless but dangerous because it creates antibiotic resistant bacteria that are then harder to treat.
Unfortunately I know a lot of people who think that antibiotics are always the cure for what ails you so I can file that one under “stupid.”
Post 53, he says that the movie “Outbreak” is the best way to learn how to handle a disease outbreak. I don’t think anyone’s that stupid so it’s gotta be trolling.
Post 69, he gets kind of snitty and threatens to slink away in shame because someone pointed out a mistake in a previous post.
Then https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showpost.php?p=22101412&postcount=133, the one which got me to make this thread.
Then Broomstick tells him that the women didn’t use a virus on Kim Jong Nam, it was nerve agent, and Charlie Wayne starts whining that he didn’t remember what the chemical used was.
IT SAYS WHAT IT WAS, THE COUNTRY WHERE IT HAPPENED, THE NAMES AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TWO WOMEN, AND THE CHEMICAL THEY USED ON HIM RIGHT IN THE SAME GOD DAMN WIKI ARTICLE YOU LINKED TO, YOU DIPSHIT!
So he’s either stupid enough to think that Kim Jong Un is getting revenge on the USA by dropping a virus on China, or he’s trolling. I hate to think that anyone is really that stupid, so it’s my conclusion that he’s trolling us with faked stupidity.
PS, please don’t tell me to stop reading that thread it he bothers me, because there are a lot of links to VALID sources of information, plus doctors and people who live in China offering their stories, and because I will sneak into your bedroom at night and leave a bowl of spoiled tunafish salad under your bed.
