No, the hygiene hypothesis is that as we live in a more sterile environment now, we don't get exposed to all the pathogens that we need to at the correct time, and thus, have a neutered immune response. Basically, the more filth you live in, the better your immune response is!

You seem to be a facsimile of what my phone does- pushes articles that fit algorithms designed to interest me. Its just links to websites over and again without any comment, much less substantive opinion.

Ok, someone in a movie says we should do our homework and not blindly accept vaccines. And that person probably hasnt done their homework on the issue at hand.

9 months ago, this was still the case- you could go 'pretty much anywhere'. Gun toting Trumpers dont make the country look good, but those morons werent keeping us from going 'pretty much anywhere' before the pandemic.
Seriously- 9 months ago I could have gone to AZ, NZ, anywhere with open borders in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, Europe, and even Canada if I had been desperate enough.
When the pandemic is over, an American passport will once again allow me to go 'pretty much anywhere'.

- Great Britain has the comical Brexit and all the Nationalism that has gone with it. That have that goof of a leader too.
- Russia has Putin, Oligarchs, and corruption beyond computation.
- China has human rights violations, totalitarian government, and so much more to be embarrassed for.
- South America and Central America have continued corruption, unstable governments, unstable economies, and nationalism in many countries.
- Africa has countless countries that are rife with corruption, human rights abuses, terrorism, and more.
- Europe is littered with countries that have rampant corruption and nationalism beyond belief.
- The Middle East is...nope, too much there.

Point is- this world is full of countries that are absolute crapshows. Trump has managed to accelerate the US being a joke in some aspects, but lets not pretend like we are the joke of the world.
Glass houses and whatnot.

Just saw this.
I am content with my view on shaming in modern culture and am not sore. Lions disagrees with me, cool. I appreciate that Lions was willing to post opinion/commentary instead of, you know, only posting some headlines.

4. The answer is 4. 3 in Europe and 1 in Central America. And while the Central American country is technically North America, it was culturally more different than the European countries so I'm counting it for your question.

So now that we have established me as a basically the love child of Carmen Sandiego and Marco Polo, why did you want to know how many countries I have been to?
Also, what is the proper number for my opinion to have value in your mind?

This is sad. if this is your version of offering up opinion/commentary, I take it back- I would rather see you plaster the forum with links to 'news'.

If any celebrity or actor is a leader of any kind, that would be news to me. I don't know whether or not Randy Quaid is alive. The last time I saw him, he was flying an airplane (or was it a jet?) into the underside of an alien space craft.

My observation of "community leaders" is that they are people who talk other people into giving them money for doing nothing but talking. The phrase, "Waste of oxygen" comes to mind.

The issue is that you are terrible at 'dishing' it. That wasnt funny, it wasnt hurtful, it wasnt anything worth posting. It was just bad. Do better, please.
Or you could, you know, actually discuss the links you constantly plaster here without comment. Its a wild idea, but it just may be good to try.

I do think its funny your post that claimed everyone agrees with you was deleted. That is also entertaining to me, but I didnt do it.


Here is the deal- You post links without any opinion or commentary and are effectively a glorified news bot.. Anyone who has managed to find their way to an obscure forum on a bike site can easily just google for news articles.
The forum thrives with discussion.
I clearly struck a nerve with pointing out how you continually offer no commentary. Change or dont change, do what you wish.
