Yeah, it's all fake and certainly just another evil deed of the Inca Venusians. But worry not for national kid (Panasonic's madlad) is coming to save us all.

We of course all know that this is just a publicity stunt for Covid, the new villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If Thanos could get rid of half the people, imagine what a villain that can divide not only the Avengers, but the entire world, could accomplish.
Coming soon in theatres, when they reopen.
10/10 I would quarantine for an ad again
Virus-based superbeings would be a total ripoff of DC, though. :P
Though in fairness, we are getting a "New Mutants" film soon, and Warlock is a member of the New Mutants, and Phalanx/Technarchy entities do infect and consume at a cellular level.. Hmmm...
Well, we already had Cable in Deadpool 2, even though his techno-organic virus wasn't mentioned. So maybe it's a lead in to a Cable film?
Oh, how about Marvel Zombies? The Hunger Virus would definitely work.

Virus wouldn't actually be an appropriate term for such a usage (having both overly specialized application and a lack of firmly established metaphorical association for the context [or at least, one I'm aware of or can find via Google]- unlike, for example, the established usage of "viral"), but plague can reasonably be used to cover the range between <species> and <non-organisms> (that despite having more of an organic association than comparable words such as epidemic and contagion), and has an established metaphorical usage.
While there are several elements related to the topic that I find interesting enough to bring up, there's really only one point of real note: That's the fact that viruses, being non-living, require outside elements for reproduction.
Obviously, this would be an ill fit for humans, if one was intending to disparage them, given that their reckless spread is usually as much a point of criticism as their thoughtless destructiveness. In fact, "viral" works so well for memes and similar elements, given the fact that they're non-living and reproduced by outside forces. Applying a similar format to humans would seemingly absolve them of some degree of responsability, implying that they're just helplessly carried around by circumstance.
First off, note that featured Google results for definitions not only vary user to user, but don't necessarily pull from the most reliable sources. Further, I wasn't arguing that virus couldn't be used in the sense of [corrupting influence], I was noting that it didn't fit the usage you applied it to [which was less about passively corrupting/poisoning, and more about actively infesting].
"A harmful or corrupting influence.
ex. ‘the virus of cruelty that is latent in all human beings’ "
Finally, note that Lexico/Oxford, the source you pulled from, still lists a non-living-element-which-is-spread-by-outside-elements application to the term, thus fitting fully with the structure I introduced within my first post. Cruelity- insomuch as it takes effect as something which is spread person to person- does very much fit the concept associated with viruses. Humans themselves, however, do not, nor does the definition in question explicitly give any indication that they would.
In fact, the only application of "virus" which doesn't fit the format in question would be computer viruses, and that's entirely due to the term having come to misuse. Formally, the encompassing term is "malware", of which viruses are a subcategory, characterized by being unable to spread without user action. [This in contrast to, for example, worms.] However, due to the frequency of "virus" inappropraitely being used in place of "malware" to encompass all malware, rather than just viruses, that has come to be a soft exception to the standard application of the term.
Nevermind that my intention hadn't been to argue against your usage, in the sense of it being "wrong"; Rather, I was merely pointing out that your statement was coming across a bit oddly given that you weren't using a more familiar and/or natural word choice (this in addition to my intention of highlighting taxonomy and vocabulary considerations that I found interesting, of course). Otherwise, I'd have included a "Fixed." statement preceding the "more information" section.
Again, if it wasn't clear, I find language and communication and information in general to be fascinating and meritorious and enjoyable and worthy of being shared. If that's not the case for you, ignore the hidden sections. That's why I made a point of hiding them, in the first place. They weren't ever meant to be an emphasized topic. ^.^
Hey, it's all right. I just wanted to reiterate where I was coming from.
Realized that your google result didn't show the full dictionary excerpt, so I corrected the post with that quote. Whoops.
Probably a bit clearer, now that the "cruelty" aspect is properly referenced. ^.^;
I can't really effectively tone down my verbosity or the fascination with random info, but I do try my best to form my posts so they're non-aggravating. So, really, I appreciate it when things aren't taken to heart [as they're not meant to be, in the first place]. And, it's not like I was clarifying something relevant to a core topic, either so, yeah: Hidden. Ignorable. Not a bother to me in the least, anymore than it would be if I started talking about how great a game Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines was, and someone indicated it wasn't in their favorite genre. Their loss, y'know?
I mean, it's not like they said they hated cake or something. I mean, that'd be insane, right? o.O;
Viruses could escape a research lab or someone let it loose.
This was in the news before the outbreak which I found odd at the time October 03, 2019:
"She would go to the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory (China's newly certified Level 4 lab which does research with the most deadly pathogens) twice a year for two years, for up to two weeks each time."
Not to sound like a conspiracy theory entusiast but that would explain why the chinese goverment is so keen in doing cover-up, one thing is to fail at keeping a pandemic under control and a completely different one would be fucking up and releasing a virus like this into the population, that's the kind of bs that starts a revolution and causes the heads of those ruling a country to suddenly detach themselves from their bodies.

That site does not like my ad-blocker...
Thanks for the link :)
Yeah, I suspected it fitted too nicely into a narrative to be true. Reality is often kinda boring, awful but boring.
I would say that a thing having natural origins doesn't preclude it being advanced in a lab. It's a very real flaw in that specific article. It doesn't take the thought a step further. A thing advanced in a lab could then be released in myriad ways.
Whether it actually was is debatable, but that article doesn't take abroad enough view of how things could happen.
Well, I literally spread nothing. You should try comprehending what you read. Have a good one lol.
That is actually not irony, and I didn't claim it was made in a lab. So yes, try comprehending things better.
The problem is you stated something that had nothing to do with the actual content of my post, but then pretended you did. Hence the lack of comprehension on your part. Which fortunately, is plain as day for everyone to see.
Fun fact, did you know the worst farts have to be squeezed through shit?
LMAO poor lil guy blacklisted me.
Yes. That is an option available to me to use at my discretion. It's more funny that you immediately ran to check. I knew you would
No need to fight, but discuss information like robilar5500 pointed out its very possible that it has natural origins and also could be advanced in a lab. Why not just discuss all the possible info, put on a table and pick your own conclusion.
A few points we could discuss are:
The fact something shady did happen here;
I also believe Natural origins because wet markets have animals from different continents that naturally don't mix together in the same room stacked together in cages. Zoonotic jump is 100% possible there. Also wet markets have existed for decades in more than just China, which has thousands in itself. If terrorists really exist, why would they not take advantage of natural viruses and spread those? Follow the money and who benefits in the end.
The most interesting part is comparing the R-naught of COVID-19 vs Influenza.
Also the case fatality rate (March 15 it was 3%, now about 0-1% with 500k and many A-symptomatic)
Incubation period of Influenza in 2 days, COVID-19 reported as 5-14 days.
It's the Umbrella Corporation trying to hide the zombies on the streets. YOU CAN'T HIDE THE FUN FROM US, UMBRELLA! DO YOU HEAR ME!? YOU CAN'T HIDE IT!
I had been "warning" since the beginning of this year.
The coronavirus is lurking nearby.
I live in an area where the declaration of emergency in an oriental island nation was issued.
However, the number of infected people has almost stopped increasing.
The emergency declaration has also been lifted.
The total number of patients in the region is 169 throughout the period.
(Three of whom died)
Fortunately, your area isn't close to the corona “now” yet.
What you should play now.

There is no escape in the world.
Yes, "if the number of infected people does not increase," it is OK.
It is rumored that a scenario will be created in the near future that will help prevent epidemics.
Yep they're working on the new mode, they mention it in this post :)
Lol clearly the last thread didn't get you enough attention.
So he is just a random internet dumb dumb that wants to get attention?
What- did you miss the thread where they attacked Muslims (among others) and then deleted all their posts?
(Some quoted sections still remain, however, and they're.. precious.)
Not that I can be sure that that's the same thread Worst was referencing, given the user's tendency to "clean up" afterwards.
But yes, the threads don't appear to have any consistent basis outside of attention-seeking. The user just grabs a random bit of irrational, inflammatory nonsense, and then keeps repeating it for a bit (in ever more absurd ways), before pretending the whole thing never happened.
Maybe he is just mentally ill and needs help?
On top of that their English is so terrible, it's pretty easy to pretend that they might have meant something else. Actually ... all of this reminds me of Trump.
Edit: Seems it had the same effect on you, as I saw further below. ;)
Hard not to be reminded of Trump, these days.
I'll give him this: He can definitely easily compare to any previous president in terms of visibility.
Rather in much the same way a temper-tantrum-throwing child has higher-than-average visibility for their peer group.
Here is some info for you to educate yourself:

While [Jews] and [Liberals] could probably be read interchangably in the above quotes, that was a bit too dark for me to be comfortable with including directly into the satire (really, give them a fresh read with that in mind). It's still worth noting here, however, for the sake of emphasizing just how readily a given group can be made into a catch-all excuse and, further on, a sacrifice.

Poland right now with Duda and Kaczyński and PiS...
People who die from COVID-19 don't die from COVID-19...
Our main TV channel called TVP sponsored by government:
Coronavirus that causes severe viral pneumonia was not the cause of death because the cause of death was severe viral pneumonia:
(News only in polish, sorry)
Reminds me of the argument of "guns don't kill people, people kill people", when the initiating topic was actually "we should restrict gun ownership to dangerous people". It's pretty amazing how we let people get by with utterly nonsensical evasions, regardless of how much the facts within those evasions only further serve to support the initial assertions.
That is to say, regardless of how you format it, there's still a clear and obvious problem that needs to be addressed.
For me it is more like: "Well gun did not kill this guy. Having too much lead in his hearth and brain killed him."
Yep. Just another case of lead poisoning.
Clearly an unavoidable act of God, that.
Maybe they died because of death and not because of COVID-19?
The patient had the coronavirus.
Coronavirus causes severe viral pneumonia.
They said Coronavirus did not kill him - the cause of death was severe viral pneumonia.
Also we are not testing people who died in home.
If we did we would have about 30+ deaths right now not 16.
Right now our government forbid all doctors and anyone working in hospitals or labs to write or speak anything about coronavirus and pandemia or they will be fired. Only one person chosen by the government can make official statements. No one would fire doctors or scientists during a pandemia for writing anything on FB or speaking to anyone about pandemia.
We have presidential elections soon (10 May) and government wants for Duda to win. After first 6 died Kaczyński said that pandemic is not a big problem so the date of presidential elections should not be changed.
Fortunately basement trolls aren't affected by the quarantaine at all.
Filin, stylin' and profilin' and spammin'!
I've got COVID-19 from this thread.
hey u stuck me too with the virus,watch how u type : D
Comments should be more spaced to limit the spreading of the virus.
i dont even understand some of ur sentences. or i should probably say i can assume what they mean but wouldnt say that they make much sense
The answer is maybe
You've seen too much
Approximately 150,000 people die every day in the WORLD. About 100,000 people die due to age-related diseases, of which about half occur in the cardiovascular system. About 50,000 people a day die from heart attacks, strokes, and heart failu
What is happening now ? More than 1000 people are sick in Russia !!!! - PANIC in the media! People are different, someone believes the news, someone puts a dick on it.
I don't believe in the virus. But my vote doesn't decide anything at all. Cafes are closed. Shopping centers are closed. Everything is closed. The street is empty. It's like watching Hollywood zombie movies.
so? that means that this isnt dangerous? wake up. i think the deathcount every day shows how serious it is
This is the overall death statistics regardless of the virus !
People die every day. New death = new life. This is unavoidable. But the media... turned the world upside down by order. This is obvious.
Italy has so many additional deaths, they don't know where to put the bodies. You think those videos are all fake?
just stop, you seem to have no idea what you are talking about. but i also see where you are from and that the information you get is mostly shit in russia anyway
got six months of coffee storage here >:D
Hospitals are being completely overloaded and unable to keep up with the amount of people who need help, in the worst hit areas they're unable to take proper care of the bodies of those who died. Is that really just business as usual? Is this just something made up? Are all the health care workers in the affected areas just telling lies when they talk about the situation they're in? Because if the virus is fake, and all those people who talk about their experiences dealing with it, then this is one huge global conspiracy that they've managed to get millions of people to participate in spreading
You know all those numbers are actually people, yes?
You lack imagination. When this pandemic touches you or someone you care about, you will change your mind.
booooo. okay =D

Now turn your head and think about who benefits from this "open" statistics.
sir if I do that I might be in danger
At least, Konrad was fun. I miss him...
This guy used to be fun as well, but this time he's not even trying.
