1Acre = 4840 square yards
Total acreage of USA = 2.27 Billion
Current world population 7.8 Billion
2.27/7.8 = 0.291 acres or 1613 sq yards (4839 sq ft)
Average area of a "family dwelling" in USA = 2000 sq ft

1 sq mile = 640 acres
Land mass of planet Earth = 57,506,000 sq miles
Land mass of USA = 3,546,875 sq miles (6% of total land)
Planet Earth is 70% water
The total surface area of Earth is about 197 million square miles
The USA = 1.8% of the total surface area of planet Earth

The atmosphere of planet Earth is 300 miles thick

640 acres / 88 = 7.3 acres per person... Sounds like plenty of elbow room to me smile

Perspective is everything. If the entire population can comfortably occupy only 1.8% of the planet... then where are all the planet's resources going? If 20% of the population owns 90% of the planet's resources... then how does "supply and demand" factor into our current debt?

Here's some more interesting math...

The current global debt is 253 Trillion
If you could spend 1 dollar per second, that's 86,400 dollars per day, it would take you 8,022,577 years to spend 253 Trillion

It occurs to me that mankind has reached a strange time in its evolution, when the concept of "money" has outgrown the worth of the planet we occupy.

Hmmmm...

Total population of USA = 330,000,000
330,000,000 X $1,400 = $462,000,000,000
$2,000,000,000,000 - $462,000,000,000 = $1,538,000,000,000

That's a LOT of bacon...

more interesting math, and were still trying to get heard...


You’ll be stunned at how many songs are added to streaming music services every day.

The good news is that you can find just about any song you could want on the streaming music services. The bad news is that there are at least 35 million songs available. And that number is increasing every single day.

According to Hypebot.com, a thousand songs are uploaded to Spotify, Apple, Google Music, Napster, Dezzer, and the other streamers every hour. That’s 24,000 songs every day and 1 million tracks every six weeks. Extrapolating further, we’re talking about almost 9 million added to the streamers’ catalogues every year.

About half of the daily upload consists of brand new songs. The rest are older tracks that have been digitized and tagged.

In other words, the signal-to-noise ratio is getting worse by the second. You gotta wonder how many of these tracks will be heard even once. (By the way, there’s a site called Forgotify which will play you a stream of songs that haven’t ever been heard on Spotify.)

Yes, it’s possible to post your music to a worldwide audience for next to nothing. Cutting through the clutter? That’s another matter–and it’s why we’ll still need record labels for the foreseeable future. They specialize in relationships that get music into the hands and ears of the right people so they have a better chance of being heard. Not everyone can be Chance the Rapper.

It sure is, even if your math is a bit off since 22% of the population is under 18 and most won't get get checks and about 3.5% are undocumented immigrants and also don't get one. Then again, some of those youngsters will boost the amount their parents get. Multiply the total by the square root of your mother's age minus the number of minutes to type this before I started to wonder why....

Thanks for recognizing my point there Gavin. It's not like everyone with a birthday in the USA is going to get a check... but, even if they did, it would still equal less than 25% of the entire stimulus plan. Just think how much more could be done if the plan were more focused. Such as, a debt forgiveness plan across the board for everyone for the last year?

Just think how much more US citizens could get if all 1.9 trillion was spent on them. No matter what your political leanings are, everybody should be appalled how little the people actually get.

I wonder if Ill get mine, i havent gotten a stimulus check yet. Going back to Trump

If you haven't got one and you were entitled to it, you can point this out on your tax return and claim it when you file. You won't get a check with T's signature on it to remind you that he's such a great guy, but with a little self-discipline you can overcome that disappointment when it ends up in your bank account.

Sandy & I had our second COVID shot yesterday. We both woke up terribly fatigued. I also had a headache, body aches, and nausea. Basically, a mild flu. These symptoms seem to be diminishing this afternoon.

Anyone else experience symptoms?

Hey John,

From what I understand, it's an attenuated vaccine, in that it may give you mild symptoms of the actual disease.

Much better of course, than getting it for real and ending up in intensive care. I'm sure it will pass. smile

cheers, niteshift

My wife and I got Pfizer. At the same times. She had flu symptoms and I didn't. Passed for her in about 24 hours.

-Covid death toll approaching 600,000 in USA...
-Population USA = 330,000,000...
-That's 0.18% who have a severe reaction to Covid... (or almost 2 out of every 1,000 people with co-morbidities, and the stats drop drastically for people under 50y/o)

Check the math against the population "WHERE YOU LIVE" and see if it's right...

I know the math seems cold-hearted, but unless Covid manages to mutate into something much more lethal, mandatory universal vaccinations, quarantines, and shutdowns are not going to be the savior of humanity... Especially since 99.999% of children already seem to be immune. This virus attacks a very specific weakness in the human genome, and there simply hasn't been enough time for virologists to get ahead of it. However, this is still the first time in history that a virus and a vaccine have evolved simultaneously, and governments around the world keep assuming more and more authority and control. Covid 19, engineered or not?

Hey JAPOV, it has already mutated. The strain here in Fiji has a double mutation ( the one from India ) One case turned into 50 with 3 untraceable links.

These little pieces of RNA are damn smart. Smarter than me me I reckon, when I can't write a song because I only have one brain cell functioning.

Mutations are irrelevant unless they become more lethal... Math is not politically biased, math does not lie.

PS, who accused you of having a brain cell? smile

It would almost make you think that this virus was designed to take out the old and those that have underlying illness. Make it cheaper for government to operate and control.

Yes. I saw a quote that 40 percent of the deaths in the US were nursing home residents.

I dont like conspiracy theories. They fck up your brain and have people using far flung imaginings as a the foundation and basis that other far-flung imaginings rest on.
They enable twisted freaks such as Alex Jones to affect the minds and behaviors of thousands. Until conspiracies are proven, I have no desire to chase after them....

BUT

Imagining the following scenario seems eerily plausible....
Consider the people at the top eschelon of the Chinese Communist Party. China goes where they decide that it goes. All of their studies show a population that is so overwhelming that it is going to have dire and unsupportable future consequences. So they enact the one-child-law. They allow each couple one kid and are said to actually round up women pregnant with a second child and forcibly abort them. It becomes so unpopular that it threatens instability and they resend it. Yet their population problem marches on with the same dire consequences in the offing. Of particular concern is supporting old people into later and later years.

And then....a few years later a disease emerges that is highly contagious and essentially emulates pneumonia by attacking the lungs. Pneumonia is well known to kill off old people and "the weak."
The disease coincidentally emerges in China and coincidentally in a food market that is coincidentally close to a bio agent lab.

I wasnt there. All I know of it comes to me from 3rd parties in the media. Yet those dots SEEM so connectable. If anyone thinks that this is far fetched and absurd, read up on what Mao and the CCP were willing to do to bring China into conformance with their socialist visions. The CCP vision of how things work is nothing like an average soccer mom. There is a "greater good" to be concerned with and the only thing not subordinate to that are the fortunes of those in power.

The fortunate and powerful always believe what they do IS FOR THE GREATER GOOD... As a Desert Storm vet, and son of a Vietnam vet, I have a particular hatred for the insidious nature of biochemical warfare and how its lingering effects can be so easily ignored and politically dismissed. However, the thought of shifting from "battlefield crowd control" to "political population control" should not be so easily ignored as tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, considering how old and genetically advanced the science of biochemistry is today. Covid-19, with its highly focused morbidity factor and unnatural genetic markers for human contagion, make it a prime suspect for biochemical engineering. All we lack is proof, which could have easily been found or ruled out at Wuhan over a year ago. Now, just like Gulf War Syndrome, it's too late and too politically incorrect to investigate; But the effects will undoubtedly continue to be bothersome.

I see Covid-19 achieving several political functions, the least of which is killing off "old money" and old political dominion...

Eloquently stated Tony....

If...the disease was carefully constructed with targets and goals in mind, what do you think that those goals are? ...beyond culling the herd?

Lol... Now you're ASKING me to venture off into "tinfoil hat" territory...
Genetic science, designer biochemical engineering, eugenic aristocracy, racial superiority, global environmental equilibrium... These are not new concepts to those who would claim ownership and control of the Earth "for the greater good" and to ensure humanity's proper and healthy future...

You want "tinfoil hat"? Considering Covid-19's overall low morbidity rate, what if it's really just a test? What if its purpose was to simply determine how quickly the world could be infected? Now consider what someone with more malicious intent could do with it...

I don't think that it was a test. The world has had many pandemics. We came through this one with relatively few casualties. And the computer models worked reasonably well at predicting numbers. Dont see a need for a trial run.

Just cant help wondering about where it came from and the historical context of China.

Even if they did do it, we cant do anything about it. They have used highly productive cheap labor to usurp our mfg base so we cant afford to rock that boat or they will cut us off from everything, They have amassed profits from that labor and used them to build an army that we probably could not beat in a strategic war without nukes.

Funny you mention computer models... Even they indicate that, if the virus truly did naturally originate from bats, outbreak ground zero would not have been Wuhan... And that's not to mention, China allowed international travel despite knowledge of the virus, which they tried to "hide" early on by silencing internet informers. Then, they tried to blame it on US troops.

Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck...

Population of Fiji= 890,000
Covid 19 related deaths to date= 3
That's 0.00033% of the population that has an adverse reaction to the disease...

But all we ever hear about are the retirement homes in NYC... Getting my point yet?

The theories that the disease was designed to take out old people and facilitated by Mario Cuomo just got a boost from the Tony.

Lol... I'm no fan of Cuomo, but common sense dictates that the stats in big, dirty, overpopulated cities are always going to be alarming; but that doesn't mean that the same precautionary measures should apply "world wide". The only thing I see perpetuating the political animosity surrounding this disease is fear of the unknown... and capitalizing off that fear is unconscionable. Now, the stats are showing that immunizations don't really help the elderly or those with co-morbidities, and there are still "no stats" regarding the effectiveness of masks, shutdowns, immunization v/s mutation, or what percentage of the population has already contracted the virus and just doesn't know it.

Look, I'm not suicidal; and I really am just as worried about the fatality rate of this virus among the elderly as anyone else, considering both my parents are still alive. Good grief... they're too afraid to even leave the house! However, until there are some verifiable facts about this thing, I simply can't decide whether or not to allow myself to become an "immunization guinea pig", even for my own parents sake! There are far too many unanswered questions and politically biased opinions for me to comfortably make an intelligent and informed decision... I just don't believe the hype! The math doesn't add up!

Fiji is not as densely populated as NYC, and Cuomo made some really stupid decisions early in the outbreak just to make "Anti-Trump" political points...

Population of USA= 330,000,000
Deaths due to Covid 19= 600,000
95% of deaths were age 50+
16.5% of Americans are age 65 or older, that's 54,450,000
600,000 is 1.1% of 54,450,000. Or, that's a survival rate of 98.9%

So.... What exactly does this mean...?
"A CDC report published in early May of 2021 found that getting either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine was 94% effective against COVID-19 hospitalization among fully vaccinated adults aged 65 and older."

Lol, OK... Let me simplify the equation for you.....

If, according to the stats we're given, everyone 65 or older already has a 99% survival rate, why take an immunization shot that's only 94% effective?

Reinfection with COVID-19
Updated Oct. 27, 2020

Cases of reinfection with COVID-19 have been reported, but remain rare&#8203;.&#8203;

In general, reinfection means a person was infected (got sick) once, recovered, and then later became infected again. Based on what we know from similar viruses, some reinfections are expected. We are still learning more about COVID-19. Ongoing COVID-19 studies will help us understand:

How likely is reinfection
How often reinfection occurs
How soon after the first infection can reinfection take place
How severe are cases of reinfection
Who might be at higher risk for reinfection
What reinfection means for a person’s immunity
If a person is able to spread COVID-19 to other people when reinfected

What CDC is doing

CDC is actively working to learn more about reinfection to inform public health action. CDC developed recommendations for public health professionals to help decide when and how to test someone for suspected reinfection. CDC has also provided information for state and local health departments to help investigate suspected cases of reinfection. We will update this guidance as we learn more about reinfection.
Prevention

At this time, whether you have had COVID-19 or not, the best way to prevent infection is to take steps to protect yourself:

Wear a mask in public places
Stay at least 6 feet away from other people
Wash your hands
Avoid crowds and confined spaces
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why hasn't this been updated since last October?

Ok JAPOV, point taken.

Covid has a kill rate of under 1% , yet it overwhelms the health systems of the most advanced countries.

Ebola has a kill rate over 30%. Lucky it was not airborne huh ?

Lol... Nite, that's the whole point I've been trying to get across...
They've been focused only on "shutting down" and "immunizing". Why? Because they're in complete control and they love it like that! We have no idea how effective the damn masks are because we have no clue what percentage of the population has already contracted the virus! Don't you get it?!? It's all a bunch of manipulative, divisive, "party line" political bull$h!t!!! and the daily statistics are a Fu(k!n& insult!!!

Are they getting away with treating the population like we're too stupid to do the math, or is the majority of the population really that stupid?!? I just can't tell anymore...

How many times do I have to say it... This is the first time in history that a virus and an immunization have evolved at the same time...

https://youtu.be/Yhb4aazJMF0

If the virus does not have a natural origin, then what "SCIENCE" exactly did the immunization evolve FROM?
