Scaremonger versus lockdown sceptic. Wherebee versus Stunley Andwin.

Recommended Posts

Things got a little feisty on page 220 of the April main coronavirus thread.

Quote

Anyway, I'm still up for that bet where if the global death toll by end of 2020 is under 10 million I give 100 bucks to a charity of your choice, and if death toll is over 10 million you give 100 bucks to a charity of my choice.

I don't like betting for money so suggested that the winner chooses the loser's forum avatar for the month of January 2021.

Are we doing this? Shall we use the figures from Covid19info.live, also known as wuflu.live?

hello!  I don't think things got heated, really.  I can never get upset with people that are wrong.....

:D

 

anyway, avatar change for a month is fun, but money makes it hurt.  if you can't stand losing 100, how about losing 10 quid?  We could do both avatar and quids.

I live in Thailand, betting/gambling for money is strictly illegal here. People are imprisoned for it.

Let's get this show on the road.

I live in australia - pubs have gambling sections and machines in them to encourage people to gamble when drunk.  

 

See the difference?

Well the likelihood of me being caught is minuscule, lower even than the likelihood of you winning this bet. :Jumping:

But I would still rather not take the risk.

Why doesn't one of you just label the other one a "denier"? That usually wins any argument.

Yes.  Scaremonger / sceptic is leading language.

It's especially unnecessary in a situation like this where the picture is literally changing on a daily basis.  If the deaths per day on April 19 and 20 had each been up towards 900 then the graph would look very different and that's just the last two days.

This thread needs a poll.

Scaremonger.

Vs.

Denier.

No fence sitting, wishy washy, namby pamby, nuance.

Its eiher overblown bollocks or literally Armageddon.

2020 total deaths Vs an average of the previous decade.

My money, and what little reputation I have left, is when the stiffs are counted they'll be little other than statistical noise in difference.

I'm 100%, iron clad, positive, emphatically sure that I can't decide.

Well, I think it is somewhere in between.

Wherebee has put a number down so I will as well, I predict between half a million and a million deaths, as per covid19info.live

Edit: But I still win when it is under 10 million.

Instead of "Winner' and "Loser' how about we consider the bet from the perspective of whether these 10m people die and the souls depart their body or not...

Then it could be Leave vs Remain... we've not had that before!

I foresee the count being an issue - there are countries where they want to pretend it's not happening, and countries where they'll want to call every death Covid19.

I think it'll be a big number but deaths will still be ongoing in Jan 2021 as that's winter season in the northern hemisphere.

If we count deaths down to the economic fuckwittery then 10 million will be an underestimate IMO.
