Is there a reason you won't just put an active link to it directly in your post? Are you really trying to say "ignore my post. It's not worth reading"?

Ah the "Valid Data" myth of ITN/IBD. - tmiddles

Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn

You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.

The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank

:*sigh* Not the "raw data" crap. - Leafsdude

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

I'll play nice with him this time and just assume that he doesn't know how to insert a link. Here's the link to what he's talking about...

NASA's APOD.com picture from June 2nd

I'd still rather see a picture of the virus going through the pores of a mask, but maybe that's just me...

You don't seem to be very intelligent. For the most part it seems that the spores need a carrier, ie., mucus from your sinus cavity or possibly even phlegm from your throat. A mask helps to prevent these 2 ways of spreading the coronavirus.
They specifically cited close physical contact, ie., kissing someone on the cheek when meeting them as a very effective means of spreading it. You must dislike the US. Otherwise you wouldn't want something to be brought down to a 2nd grade level because that seems to be all that you are capable of understanding.

That was very kind of you.

That leads to the obvious question: How can you tell if you have COVID-19?
(it reminds me of a Skittles commercial).

I'm thinking that we'd survive if we were to become infected.

NEWS UPDATE: I ran into someone I know who claims she personally had the coronaflu and was off work sick for several days. So there you go. I discovered someone who actually had it.

She's perfectly fine of course, and back at work.

What's very kind is your wonderful artwork. This last one with us covered in COVID is one of my favorites!

Good question.

For all the while that I've been residing in Coronaville (aka "living my life normally, not bathing in hand sanitizer, not social distancing, etc"...), I've hopefully been exposed to the rice-a-rona by now. Have I actually been?? Idk...

I haven't shown any symptoms yet, but then again, over the past several years, I have hardly ever showed any symptoms of any sort of illness outside of getting a stuffy/runny nose once in a blue moon, and I'm sure that I've been exposed to quite a few viruses/bacteria over those years...

I'm thinking the very same thing.

Splendid!! My "rice-a-rona count" still remains at two (my nurse cousin and her husband).

So, that's two people for me and now one person for you (and all three had mild symptoms at most, and all three are perfectly fine and back to work). ITN, do YOU happen to know anyone who's had the rice-a-rona?

Cancer in microscopic imaging looks way cooler.

It's sad that American search engines provided no such results.

I went to top up my meds and asked the chemist about this virus and his answer was It is a virulent virus that is very contagious and the best defence is non contact and sanitizing.There have been middle age people that have died from it however 98.5% of casualties already had an underlying condition.By Isolating the state of Western Australia from the rest of the world we have achieved 2 things.Stopped the spread and discovered how the rest of Australia lives of the wealth generated by our mining sector.The trucks run to the border at South Australia and then the pans are switched on to local trucks so we still get products and mail.Queensland has been wanting to dig a ditch around their border and declare independance for the same reason for as long as I can remember

Hey... GOOD NEWS ALL!!!!!!

Soon we can carry UV light around with us everywhere we go and attempt to kill scary viruses and bacteria so that our immune systems don't get exposure to them... YAYYYYY!!!!!!!

Coming soon to a hypochondriac near you!!!

What a stupid idea... UV-C doesn't discriminate, it messes up everything living. It can be used for sanitation, but it's not healthy for people, or anything live to be constantly exposed.

Let's just say that I'm not about to carry around anything like that. I want a certain level of exposure to viruses/bacteria. Plus, I'd rather just "live life" than be too preoccupied with attempting to regularly sanitize myself and the world around me...

The device puts out UV-A, not UV-C. As far as I know, there is no LED that puts out UV-C.

You are already exposed to UV-A long term...every day (assuming you go outside at all). UV-A will destroy Covid-19, if it's sufficiently intense enough and long enough. As we move into summer, more of the virus is destroyed.

UV-A devices are already used to sanitize water in water distribution systems (they use a fluorescent bulb for that, similar to a suntanning bed, but it puts out a wider spectrum, including some UV-
. It is also used in food processing lines. UV-A equipment is used to harden glues and inks (as well as to disinfect). You will even find UV-A equipment in pools and hot tub filtration and pumping systems (saves on the use of chlorine or bromine sanitizing chemicals). If a pool or hot tub does not have this equipment, you can install one as an add-on.

Carry one around with you? Seems excessive to me.
