All the geniuses complaining that bowl games are in warm climates and unfair.
As opposed to the Tinkerbells that don't think that the Green Bays,Pittsburghs and New Englands don't have a cold weather home field advantage

I don't know that I'd enjoy living in China long-term, but I really do enjoy visiting.

I'm on the fence. Sometimes I think it would be awesome and sometimes not so much.  What did you enjoy?

To be fair, I've only spent time in Shenzhen and Shanghai. I've spent much more time in Taipei, but obviously that's not China. 

So Shenzhen and Shanghai are obviously very modern cities. Shanghai in particular is basically glittering because it's brand freakin' new. 

But in general it gave all the advantages of a large city but had its own unique feel compared to where I've traveled in North America or Europe. Business-wise, it seemed to have a more free-wheeling "let's get sh!t done" aspect than anything else. I feel like the Chinese do business much like Americans do business, where the Japanese do business much more like Europeans do business. It's all about results and less about tradition. 

I personally love the food. American Chinese food doesn't hold a candle to the real thing. Here everything is over-sauced and too sweet. Over there you get all sorts of complexity that I think is dumbed down at your typical American Chinese restaurant. There are certainly things that are "unconventional" to western palates, but I never went into the heart of China for the really outlandish stuff. 

That said, while I enjoyed my time in China, I really find myself enjoying Taipei even more. It's a really unique place--a mix of indigenous population, Chinese expats who fled the revolution, Japanese influence from their conquest in WWII. Then as it grew as an economic power outside of communist China, it attracted a bunch of other folks from the region. It's a smorgasbord of cultures and cuisines and people. I'd love to go back there...

No, not a large % at all. There's something like 52M people in the US who are 65 or older. We've had ~160K COVID deaths and if you assume 80% are in the 65 and over crowd, that's 128K deaths.

That accounts to 0.25% of the 65-and-older cohort in our society.

I don't want to get into cases because I doubt our ~5M cases are equally distributed across age groups. It wouldn't surprise me at all if our cases actually skew much younger than flu cases because it's the young people going out and being dumb these days while the older people hunker down more.

So there is still a HUGE proportion of people still alive who are vulnerable to the flu. And it will be COVID mitigation that protects them from the flu even more effectively than it protects them from COVID.
I appreciate the math and the effort and all, but you're going way overboard.  I was saying that those killed by Covid are the first ones a bad flu would get, not that a large % of old people have died.  I must've worded it pretty badly for you to make that leap.
