    Yeah.
    Yeah

    A week ago it was a tenth of that.

    So I have a bag of M&Ms. A bag of ten thousand of them.

    Last week, one would make you sick if you chose it. Would you eat from the bag?
    This week there are ten that would make you sick. Would you eat from the bag?
    Next week it’s a hundred of them that’ll make you sick and one that’ll kill you. Would you eat out the bag?

    Your analogy is a few factors off... but sure, we can go with your odds, for this.
    Would I eat out of the bag? Absolutely.
    What I wont do - is allow anyone, including the gov, to take the bag away from me, or prevent me from buying another bag.
    All life is a risk, everyone knows that.
    Does that mean I'm going to intentionally expose myself to covid? Nope.
    But I wont trade my freedom of choice (whether or not to eat an m&m) for the 'safety' of not having that choice...
    No matter how much the government wants me to suck on their teat.

    I'd rather live on my own terms and fail, or even die, than live on another's terms - and survive.

    Hey @MountainGirl .

    Explain how my factors are out please?

    I think you need to check your figures further up.

    1000 per million is 1 001 000
    And 91 per pillion is 1 000 091

    1 in 10 000
    Is 10 in 100 000
    Is 100 in 1 000 000

    Happy to play math and statistics with you

    You are absolutely right!! My error!!


    1000 per million is 1,00
    1,000

    91 per million (Italy) is 1,000,0
    91


    Thanks for the correction!

    So - how about you? Would you eat one of the m&m's ?

    Oh no you don't.
    You set up the hypothetical, that means you get to play too.

    Would I eat one?
    If it was just to get sick? Yes.
    Chance of death? I’ll pass.
    But I, too, would not like to be told I couldn’t eat one or have the bag taken away. I’m also someone who thinks if we took away all warning signs and notices for twelve months we’d solve an overpopulation problems.
