    Here is from the article. This is from last summer. Realize that the test for it is very unreliable.

    On Friday, the CDC updated their Provisional Death Counts for Coronavirus report, which revealed an extremely low number of people contracted COVID-19 and died solely because of it. All Americans need to hear the following conclusions from the report.

    The CDC wrote, “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned.” 6%. This means that only about 9,857 of the 164,280 deaths were caused by coronavirus alone.

    But that’s not all. The disease control agency continued, “For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”

    The other 94% who were marked as coronavirus in fact died with an average of more than 2.5 comorbidities. Among the most common pre-existing conditions the CDC found were deadly health problems such as varying heart diseases, respiratory illnesses, influenza and pneumonia, organ failure, cancer, obesity, and cognitive diseases.

    Yet, every single one was still added to the overall COVID-19 death count because they had coronavirus in their system at the time of death. Sadly, these people who had two to three deadly comorbidities were already dying or on the brink of death. To include them in the coronavirus death count is a gross misrepresentation to the public of how fatal contracting coronavirus really is.

    To sum this, basically you are saying all of them were dead meat anyway and covid being there was a happy accident. Look, people have health conditions. It doesnt mean they were going to all just up and die anyway during the last year. While I can speculate as to what the criteria is for declaring a death as covid related, its kinda rich to look at a cdc report that is saying covid played a critical part in these people dying, then to conclude it really wasnt.

    I think this is a case of us looking at the sun, I say its a star, you say it just appears that way when its really a chicken.

    Sounds like that old Dylan song Tombstone Blues. "The suns not yellow it's chicken" Let's not get into astronomy here, because i have info that would blow your mind. I agree with the article that says the death numbers were inflated. Remember the flu was basically 98% down and the amount of deaths in the US was about the same as any other year.

    Those points of light are not stars. It’s all part of the simulation. So are you

    Do you believe this happened? Wouldn't the tires burn up from the heat?

    OMG. You just went there. You must be trolling.

    I'll try to explain. Heat is a product of molecules interacting with each other vigorously via colliding with each other, primarily in a gas where they are free to move without much restriction, we call this an excited state. However, gas particles need to actually be there in the first place. Space is essentially a near perfect vacuum, and though there do exist gas particles out there, they are far too few and spaced way too far apart to conduct heat. Therefore, space is not hot. So, yes, this is real. Yes, this car can be in space without tires melting.

    Melting rubber is'nt as simple as it sounds either. Tires are not pure rubber, but a mixture of various substances. Certain melting processes actually involve basically freezing the tire and crushing it, then firing it at over 1000 degrees fahrenheit to finally burn the tire. This is why tire recycling typically involves shredding them, not so much melting them into soup. Try again.

    The better question is, why do you not believe it?

    Not buying it. Even the car parts would burn. Even Elon Musk said it looks so fake it must be real. It's a fake photo though.

    Not buying what? The second law of [email protected]? Can you actually prove its fake or are you just saying that? That is literally Flat Earth debate tactic 101.

    It occurs to me that you don't believe in satellites, or that we sent Voyager on its way. Is the Hubble fake?

    Oh, that is cute!! I can see we are on the edge of an abyss here!

    On re-entry to the earths atmosphere (or any other planet with an atmosphere), a BUNCH of this car and it's occupant would be burned up due to the friction caused by the airs molecules hitting said solids at thousands of miles per hour, thereby generating heat (see @Draconomics ) much more accurate description). But leaving earth, no, it just gets colder and colder the higher you go until you are in outer space, where nothing is going to burn up from heat because it is REALLY REALLY cold. And on launch the car was mounted on the top of the rocket, far from any engine heat sources.

    Anyway, the real conspiracy here is, who is the driver. Immediately after the launch of this Tesla roadster into space, I figured it out!!! Call it a conspiracy theory if you like, but until you can prove me wrong, I am a true believer. That is actually David Bowie's body in that car, inside the space suit. I theorize (not really conspiratorially because no harm was intended to anyone therefore not really a conspiracy, just a theory) that DB made a deal with Elon to bury his body in space. I wrote a song about it (on Feb 10, 2018) titled "Helio Orbit" that I have yet to fully produce and release, but here are the lyrics. Enjoy my crazy thoughts if you dare!!

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Helio Orbit - Copyright February 10, 2018 - ANO Publishing, LLC - All Rights Reserved

    Remove my dead body
    From the cryogenic chamber
    Put me in a space suit
    Though I'm in no danger
    Launch me on a rocket
    Towards the black star
    Put me in a red roadster
    To check for life on mars

    (Admiral Stardust positioned for launch)

    Starman sailing
    In a helio orbit
    Arm out the window
    Don't panic

    Starman rolling
    In a helio orbit
    One hand on wheel
    Leavin' planet

    (Payload configured)

    I made the deal
    And wrote it in my will
    That I would have the most
    Funeral surreal
    EM told me
    He'd be happy to help
    And now Davey Jones body
    Plays the cards he dealt (Oh Hell)

    Starman rolling
    In a helio orbit
    Arm out the window
    Don't panic

    Starman sailing
    In a helio orbit
    One hand on wheel
    Leavin' planet

    (Pyres lit)

    Try to collide in this system
    With nothing solid
    Airbag deploy vector alter
    Could prove fatal
    Don't look straight into the sun
    Without your visor
    Radiation Protection Factor
    Recommended

    (Calm screen initiated)

    I made sure nobody
    Could ever mess with me
    That is why we buried my bones
    In a star filled sea
    And to ground control
    The circuits never dead
    Major shifting to the next gear
    In the stars above your head
    In the stars above your head
    In the stars above your head
    I cruise the solar system
    In galactic fantasy Tesla red

    Starman plays in
    In a helio orbit
    Arm out the window
    Don't panic

    Starman sailing
    In a helio orbit
    One hand on wheel
    Leavin' planet

    Theres a Starman
    Sailing through the sky
    Theres a Starman
    Winking from up high
    Godspeed Starman
    Racing from our times
    Farewell Starman
    We wave to you goodbye

    (Go Falcon Heavy)
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Of course, part of the photo supplied by Tesla is fake!!! DB would not be seen dead (literally) driving a left side drive vehicle, which is why the photos I did for the artwork on this song are much more accurate!!!

    One also needs to ponder how this car could still be moving! Wouldn't he (David Bowie) have run out of gas already!

    Dear Post-Collegiate Doctoral Candidate:

    Bzzzt! You've all officially been appointed collegiate alumni. Your test grades have come back negative which means you're free to enjoy restaurants, bars, open-mics, and music venues. Unfortunately, your request to enroll in post-collegiate doctoral studies has been turned down by our board of regents. President Cathy Lee said you wouldn't fit in with the doctoral studies crowd.

    Sincerely,

    Oscar B. Ferdberner
    President of Walden College

    That's what happens when your IQ test comes back negative. Can't even make it into a for profit online college.
