Something that makes a fairly dumb monster movie worth watching:

Kelly Brook

This Saturday night kind of sucks; I can tell the weather is changing

because my knees are bloody killing me.  Although that does make another reason to just sit down and do some research

A: "You're costing us big points in the polls, knock of the violence!"

B: "Holy shit, they're actually after US!"
And about damned time.  Maybe the EffingBI can actually do some good here.

Damn, it's hot & humid out there,

might as well still be daylight.  Ah well, data's in, so that might take your mind off the weather

But he's only a doctor, former director of the Institute for Immunology

at the University of Bern, a biologist and professor emeritus, so what does he know?

Coronavirus: Why everyone was wrong
 So if we do a PCR corona test on an immune person, it is not a virus that is detected, but a small shattered part of the viral genome. The test comes back positive for as long as there are tiny shattered parts of the virus left. Correct: Even if the infectious viruses are long dead, a corona test can come back positive, because the PCR method multiplies even a tiny fraction of the viral genetic material enough [to be detected]. That’s exactly what happened, when there was the global news, even shared by the WHO, that 200 Koreans who already went through Covid-19 were infected a second time and that there was therefore probably no immunity against this virus. The explanation of what really happened and an apology came only later, when it was clear that the immune Koreans were perfectly healthy and only had a short battle with the virus. The crux was that the virus debris registered with the overly sensitive test and therefore came back as “positive”. It is likely that a large number of the daily reported infection numbers are purely due to viral debris.
Which would mean all the 'X MANY CONFIRMED CASES!' could be just so much more bullshit.

Toon clearing

I may have some I've used before; I need to get better about clearing this stuff out
