I know they denied it as well as a lot of our Allies.
Can't wait for declassification, when we learn that like in 2003, the "massive evidence" is actually intel reports saying "we see no evidence."
How much higher is that than usual?
Is shipping free?
Hasn't killed me yet.
2003 taught me a tough lesson on'Blind Patriotism'.
We actually have a decent scene out here. We have three rinks, all with D, C, B, A leagues.
i play in two of the A Leagues.
We have 4, maybe 5, REALLY good goalies. The rest are your normal C/B guys
That's meaningless without context. And there haven't been 48K suicides in the US this year, that's the total for 2018.
Products - Data Briefs - Number 361 - March 2020
Though the highest rates are in Red States that tend to have the most liberal gun laws.
Hmmm, connection between suicides and guns, guess that's a strong argument for gun control?
The question is will there be ADDITIONAL suicides above the "norm".
Without COVID, around 50K would have committed suicide in 2020, so to even be comparable to the COVID death toll without a lockdown (the 80K with a lockdown so far would probably be 200-300K without one and rapidly climbing), the suicide rate would have to double or triple.
So far there is no evidence of an actual rise in the suicide rate.
Wait, i'm a bit late, did Cuomo really call this the European Virus or are people just losing their minds on twitter?
I’m not sure. I wasn’t debating that. Just saying that other things are killing Americans.
I have heard that suicides are getting a massive bump in numbers but nothing I can quantify.
There is a rise in calls to mental health and suicide call centers, but a lot of that is anxiety over COVID.
But the most likely person to kill themselves is a white male in a Red State who owns a gun (seriously). And they don't make those kind of calls.
There are no stats that I can find on suicides in 2020, these numbers are often a year behind, so we may not know until 2021 unless there's a dramatic spike.
He did. Tbf he’s claiming he got hit by a strain originating in Europe.
On the same page, “Europe’s Virus” tHaTs rAcIsT!!!
Can she make pretzel buns to use with burgers? I'll buy some.
If you go to that table, and hit the link for "source"
Their data only goes to 2017. And the country data is from WHO 2018
So I think the table is mis-labled.
Pretty much, but I dont smoke, take pills, or even drink liquor (other than at weddings for the liquor)...beer only... so I gotta get my poison somewhere.
Most of the US got hit by the New York Virus.
This is a really strange thing. It just feels like a partisan war at this point.
I apologize, the year at the top of the chart mislead me.
That's the problem. Does the number of lives lost to suicides outweigh the number that would be lost to the virus?
I have no doubt there's going to be an increase in suicides but IMO opening up too early will cost more lives.
you need to recharge your phone btw
He’s basically trying to get in the mud with Trump with that comment. It’s all irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Like it doesn’t change what’s currently going on.
It's a shot at the "Blame the foreign non-white Chinese" coming from the nationalist front, and I don't know if it's terribly productive for that to be coming from a governor. It's a bit of smartassery that should be made, but from someone else.
For anyone interested in the next grim milestones, 104,813 deaths is the point where we surpass KIA in the European Theater of WWII.
Or about 92k will surpass Vietnam and Korea combined.
Maybe I'll try putting together a fun positive thing to do in the next thread to balance out...that.
