Re: Coronavirus has caused the postponement of the WSOP 2020! (Coronavirus quarantine thread)

its the same thing as analyzing poker data or trends with a db.. If you start with flawed data you're destined to come up with the wrong answer. Also if you dont break everything down completely, honestly and objectively you won't come up with the most +ev solution is how I see it.

ok lemme try again, I don't trust most other countries for honestly reporting data correctly or having the ability to do so and also dont have a very high opinion of their health care systems or personal habits which might make them more susceptible.. Is that any better? If you dont take care of yourself I shouldn't have to wear a mask to supposedly protect you.

No not all, quite the opposite actually. The people I personally know that weren't even tested but were told they tested pos and reported as such along with my own brain, logic, reason and life experience leads me to the conclusions I arrive at

Its unfair that I can't use safe, legal and cheap heroin to protect the small percentage that die from heroin use too.

From my camp's side and my personal point of view that's like asking what came first, the chicken or the egg? What's really affecting people, the politics or the virus? or both and if so what's the distribution of responsibility? 90% politics 10% virus or less? or 100% virus and zero politics?

Ask the 157,000 dead Americans. They died from a virus.
Ask what has been the federal response to the virus ? To what degree has it been protective of Americans' health ?
What % of the protective policies have been at the State level versus the Federal level, due to "politics" ?

The questions are rhetorical, as you apparently have a "camp" with a "side", I do not really care what you respond.

See you Nov 3.

I call BS as to this premise .... what your brain, logic, reason and life experience do with this apocryphal data seem "garbage in, garbage out" conclusions.

ok but seeing as how im not the only one saying the same thing, that know the people etc... You can pass off the whole "he has tbi brain is garbage nothing matters he's an idiot" argument but... Still wont change how I act.

I could say the same thing about you, garbage mind to start with fed with garbage news and garbage mental and physical health management most likely led you to the place of fear you're currently living in

You don't have to be living in fear to put something over your ****ing mouth when you're out in public. I am not afraid, playing live regularly, and have no qualms about covering my face holes. No shame, no oppressed feelings.
