    .
    missed a big one
    Spanish Flu 1918
    From wiki
    "The death toll is estimated to have been 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million"
    " It infected 500 million people around the world, or about 27% of the then world population"
    Contrast how American Samoa kept itself free of that flu while many died in Western Samoa .


    Chinese online sellers are now using Corona Virus as an easy excuse for not sending goods (that they dont actually have) . That p8sses me off a bit .

    Quite the reverse, It would be preferable for the virus to catch Trump. He will probably seek to claim glory for curing it in a Senator's cat, or more.

    Should we ban people and flights coming from the USA, too?

    Well, if you belief that, that's absolutely fine! But I don't.

    I do belief, however, that the USA death toll is >12,000 and still increasing.

    And, if you think that 12,000 death toll is OK, so be it. .. I won't be going to the U.S. at least in the near future, anyway.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Well they do have a population of 372 million. Thats a fairly low percentage, as always mainly elderly, babies and the already very ill succumb.

    But yes, I wouldn't go either, more likely to die from being shot.
