    Pretty much what doctors said when Lister and Pasteur suggested you might want to wash hands between patients. One critic used to carry a flyswatter on rounds in case he saw any of Lister's little bugs trying to infect his patients.

    I think you are referencing Semmelweis. Only when it was noticed by many that Semmelseis's patients had a higher rate of survival did it occur to them that he was on to something. But then it took many years to stop bleeding ill patients.

    No, referencing a biography of Lister. But, hey, lots of people have resisted lots of science all thru our stupid history.
    It's a wonder we stopped cleansing houses of the sick with lark's tongue and boiled anthills, really, on the basis of if it doesn't work, no need to fix it.

    I read somewhere that the human immune system is really quite robust compared to othrr species on the planet. I begin to suspect if this is true, it's because other soecies either get better or they die.
    They don't have the third option of listening to stupid opinions or half-assed guesses, or half-remembered what-gramma-dids, forcing us to get better in fucking spite of dumbass ourselves

    Dumbass Jerry Falwell brought students back to Liberty University and now a bunch of them are experiencing CV19 symptoms.

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    I was raised Church of Christ and there is a sect among them that believe you have to use one cup in the communion. They believe the cup represents the new testament per luke 22: 20. They use grape juice instead of wine, so dont get any protection somewhat from alcohol found in wine. I wonder what the corona virus is going to do to them?

    Charles Darwin may be able to answer that one.

    For them it's a no lose situation. Even if they die they did it all for their Jesus. Gotta remember that the mother ship is in the tail of the comet.

    It sounds like some of them came from the NYC greater area. So Falwell brought Covid-19 to Liberty University. I suppose God does act in mysterious ways.
