  1. Logically it isn't such a remote hypothesis IF one adds in laboratory animals who became "the intermediate" hosts as opposed to it happening in a wet market where there are the intermediate hosts - the animals. However, the WHO doesn't explain this and the reporting all around has been pretty shoddy for well over a year. Either way the virus came from the original SARS not out of nothing or outer space (not that you said that last part - I'm just adding it in for others who think the virus just developed out of nothing - it did not, it would have mutated from SARS 1 but whether it did
  2. Hmmmm, interesting. I think my network provider is really good then. I did a quick Google search on Second Life and Timing Out which brought up an old archive and some thought perhaps a router issue, but OP says not a router issue.
  3. I don't have a superb custom-built desktop as it was built for SL specs (SL's recommended) by someone who just looked up the specs here on the SL website about three years ago now and I have an integrated chip and cannot run EEP now because of my low graphics integrated card but I NEVER crash, never. I get the 'viewer not responding' when I need to shut down and that's it. This is way weird. Why my lesser machine fine while the super machines crashing? o.0 I have no teleport issues whatsoever either (and I zip all around for Friday sales and the Saturday and Weekend Sales events), only du
  4. I'm not sure of what all the governments did as too many involved, but the WHO blame is directed at the WHO in the second sentence in the article with the copy/paste below. However, from posters in this thread, some countries left "WHO" and decided to act on their own closing their borders way before others, etc. The WHO was the one who knew about the original SARS how could they not know about how quickly these zoonotic viruses spread? The organization needs an overhaul badly. The WHO only declared it an international emergency. It was their call. I don't think the blame is out of order
  5. There was a new article out this morning about the coronaviruses, the first one and then this one, the current pandemic, and whether the transmission was through animals in the wet market or if the latest COVID SARS-2 was created in a laboratory accidentally. The thing is, that's preposterous. Because 1) the ORIGINAL SARS was deemed to be from the wet market. So, if SARS-2 was accidentally created in a laboratory it still came from SARS-1 the original from the wet market. So, either way it came from a wet market even if the 2nd one mutated in a laboratory. https://www.msn.com/en-us/
  6. Yes, the article did...right here. Plus, there are other articles out now. The WHO should have declared a global emergency earlier than it did, its report said, adding that without urgent change the world was vulnerable to another major disease outbreak. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-57085505
  7. Oh, ok, well, never mind. It's not a subject I'd like to discuss but I will just say I don't think the door has completely closed on the extreme health hazards of wet markets and maybe someone else would like to read the above.
  8. I don't know what wet markets all over the world has to do with anything in particular to what I said? I've read about wet markets. The Wiki below also describes the type of wet markets where animals are slaughtered right there in the market place. Link to the Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wet_market If sanitation standards are not maintained, wet markets can spread disease. Those that carry live animals and wildlife are at especially high risk of transmitting zoonoses. Because of the openness, newly introduced animals may come in direct contact with sales clerks, butchers
  9. No, lol. You and your words, Finite. No I meant fresh meat as in they pick it while the animal or even say a turtle swimming in the turtle bin is still alive, that's far fresher than a grocery store but wet markets are an extreme health hazard as blood an excrement can contaminate the other food in those wet markets. I was responding to Jackson's wet market statement. If you don't know what a wet market is, you can Goggle it. And, I'm mostly vegetarian, so this is a tough subject for me and I don't really want to talk about it anymore.
  10. I'll never forgot "wearing a box". LOL I stood there at least five minutes not knowing what the heck to do and thinking what am I supposed to do with this stupid box? Then, help came to rescue. I had to go to a sandbox. I got a home shortly after that so I could change in private, etc.... I think SL should at least come with a basics pamphlet.
  11. Yep. It's also surfacing in some articles that the Director of the Who is a little too cozy with China. I think he coddled them at the expense of the rest of the world. It was his watch and his call though. But we had rumors of all freeways were going to be shut as early as Feb. 9th. March 19th is when lockdown happened, over five weeks later. What stalled? It's sounds like the real truth was silenced by someone, plus there is an original SARS, this is the second one to my understanding. So the WHO director should have known something.
  12. I'm not so sure that has been completely debunked. Blood is very, very dangerous. Poaching of exotic animals or game is a status symbol in parts of Asia for the wealthy and Asian's mostly only eat fresh meat from what I've heard. Asian's usually pick out their meat alive. https://www.google.com/search?q=when+did+sars+start&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS784US784&sxsrf=ALeKk0284iUyVza0V6k9j8jIytokdLDuIw%3A1620945886638&ei=3qudYPCsJtTa9APc66zoBA&oq=when+did+sars+start&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAMyAggAMgIIADICCAAyAggAMgIIADICCAAyAggAMgUIABCGAzIFCAAQhgM6BwgAEEcQsAM6BAgjECc6BggAEBYQHjoFCAAQ
  13. Knock, knock, Luna. We are discussing the two articles that just recently came out I think yesterday. Phil and I got almost the same news yesterday. Phil's is from the BBC, read and bit back in this thread and you will find it. It's two different articles but basically the same facts re: WHO's to blame. I still say no payment. Yeah sure, the WHO wants "immediate" payment. Again, yeah sure. I hope Biden is strong enough to stand up to this WHO guy. The Director of the WHO needs to resign. "Immediate" money, I don't think so. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/world-could-hav
  14. I didn't see a date on that article as I cannot see well...so what date was it? I'd like to compare notes here as I will not forget the date I was told "they may shut the freeways down" for all of Los Angeles and the greater Los Angeles area. I will never forget how scared I felt when I was told that. The date was February 9th 2020 California's governor was thinking of closing all the freeways. It's quite aways away from February 9th to March 19th when lockdown did finally happen and all that air travel kept going on from Feb. 9th thru March 19th. I've often wondered why the freeway closu
