Nerd/nərd/noun: a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious.
There must be no real joy in the fields of medicine or medical research. I have expressed my gut feeling before that the fascist nerds controlling this psyop seek revenge on the non-nerd population for being hazed and belittled in school and in homes with multiple siblings. Sports and music events and other popular social gathering places like bars, restaurants, and political rallies seem to piss off the “white-coats” more than other activities. Skiing in now in the cross-hairs. Not many nerds out on the slopes craving that sensation of floating in bottomless powder (pow) or feeling “the need for speed.” How insensitive? How long should this bullshit go on?
“Dr. Daniel Pastula, a neuroinfectious disease physician at UC Health University of Colorado Hospital, said the outdoor element of ski trips is generally safe during a pandemic, but the virus could spread if people congregate in places such as lift lines, lodges, restaurants and bathrooms.
“I think you can ski smartly and safely. Again, not completely eliminating the risk, but really reducing it,” he said. “
Who is this clown? “…the virus could spread…” Notice, he didn’t say it would spread. Now that’s as arbitrary a reason to shut down skiing in 2020 as any I can imagine. This clown is former CDC, and worked on Zika, with a special talent for designing “track and trace” surveillance systems worldwide. Oh, how “neat.”
“Pastula, a neurologist, medical epidemiologist, and former Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officer at the University of Colorado School of Medicine has been working with CDC to investigate the link between Zika and Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS).
In February (2016), Pastula deployed from his home in Colorado to Puerto Rico, where he helped the Puerto Rico Department of Health establish a surveillance system for GBS. The goal is to track the number of GBS cases, determine whether the number of cases is increasing and, if so, whether Zika is the cause.”
Enough! If this ass-wipe is able to shut down the 2020-2021 ski season worldwide with no data and no evidence I may have to do a little track and trace of my own in my spare time this winter, which will be considerable since my annual season’s pass says “unlimited skiing”. I fail to see how needing a mask and “reservation” is the same as “unlimited.” I guess we’ll see, but sure as hell hope the greater skiing community rejects these Orwellian tactics before the sport is killed all together.
