If you say it enough times, it'll come true?
If you bash the USA enough times, will you find a better country?

Dead serious. Show me a better one.

I got my COVID test, that was not pleasant, both nostrils, count to ten, yuck.  I think I'm a wuss, but the wife complained about hers as well and she's not a wuss, at all.

Should get result tomorrow or Friday.  It was very efficiently run, just unpleasant, I would personally avoid having it done again.

The wife had her first PT today and it went well, they took off the primary bandage.  It the same PTist she had for her hip revision surgery.

So, I'm next, right shoulder, Monday 0615.

If I had to leave the US (Heaven forbid), Canada would be first on my list, probably Vancouver etc.  Switzerland is interesting, to me.  I hear folks like Portugal, my EU friends talk about retiring there, or some already have.  

I think we Americans tend to see all the bad and fail to appreciate all the good, of which there is quite a bit in comparison to other places.

If I had to live in another country Id pick New Zealand

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

I'd go to a tropical island in the Caribbean.

https://judithcurry.com/2020/07/27/why-herd-immunity-to-covid-19-is-reached-much-earlier-than-thought-update/#more-26449

A key reason for variability in susceptibility to COVID-19 given exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus causing is that the immune systems of a substantial proportion (35% to 80%) of unexposed individuals have T-cells, circulating antibodies or other components that are cross-reactive to SARS-CoV-2 and can be expected to provide substantial resistance to it.[6] [7] [8] [9] Such components likely arise from past exposure to common cold or other coronaviruses, or to influenza.[10] Not being specific to SARS-CoV-2, and typically not being antibodies, such immune system components are not normally detected in seroprevalence or other tests for immunity to SARS-CoV-2.

I will end with a follow up to my June 28th article focusing on Sweden. In it, I concluded that it was likely the HIT had been surpassed in the three largest Swedish regions, and in the country as a whole, by the end of April notwithstanding that COVID-19-specific antibodies had only been detected in 6.3% of the population.[11]

He's clearly never been anywhere else and just talking out of his internet ass.

I've been to probably close to 20 countries. And I enjoyed my travels in them all. But I would absolutely never live anywhere else but the USA. The only other place I could imagine myself living part time might be Barcelona. But that's it.

Every single country has drawbacks and negatives. Not just the USA. There is no perfect country and no perfect place to live. Out of all the places I've ever been, not a single one of them beats the US. We have it so good here, and you don't realize that until you actually get out in the world.

My company has facilities in the UK, Brussels, Frankfurt, Japan, and Singapore, among others.  I chatted with our coworkers many times and visited their homes.  The folks at the same level as me in the company had a significantly lower standard of living.  They would comment to me about that when they would visit us in our home.

It's certainly not a poor standard of living, it's not a hell hole by any means.  But it means smaller houses, smaller yards, smaller cars, more expensive energy, having walls around your home because the police (in France anyway) don't bother with property crime, etc.  My wife says the same thing.  

My buddy in France was President of the company and said he only moved back to France because his grandkids live there.  He had a much nicer house i Cincy than he does now in France.  He has some killer wines though.

https://www.clinicaltrialsarena.com/news/neurorx-relief-aviptadil-data/

Aviptadil is a formulation of Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide (VIP), which is present in high concentrations in the lungs and known to block various inflammatory cytokines. NeuroRx and Relief partnered to develop the drug in Covid-19 indication.

The drug candidate secured fast track designation from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat respiratory distress associated with Covid-19.

This appears to combat that cytokine explosion I have mentioned previously as a serious problem in seriously ill patients.  This probably does little for folks who are less seriously ill.
