Zorch, RangerJoe I really wouldn't bother. He's clearly enjoying his five minutes of fame and appears to be getting off on the numbers rising higher. He knows that if this thing does prove worse than we are currently being led to believe then he can be the all knowing sage - and if in time the numbers prove to be lower, then he can use his 'mathematical formula' as his defence.
You do not know what my motives are. All the above is a lie. This is some sort of "shoot the messenger" syndrome.
I note he hasn't broken his numbers down by country - after all that would expose the absurdity of his 'methodology'. You mention 100% Zorch, but the US is around 50% death rate (according to him) so instead of telling the active cases in the US they have to die, just tell them they need to flip one of those coins he keeps banging on about before knowing what is the appropriate course of action for them to take.
Breaking it down by country would be data manipulation. The virus didn't originate in the US. Sick people were shipped here from elsewhere. The US can't be viewed in a stand-alone way. The Worldwide numbers are the only ones that matter.
One thing that is clear is that he isn't going to stop, he's on a roll and loving it. So in responding we are just going to get the same thing everyday; The poor man's grim reaper pipes up with his daily shock headline based on selected, cherry-picked data for maximum effect, then calmer, more measured heads take exception, and others get angry that the same conversations are being had.
So perhaps the "ignore him and he'll go away approach" is best?
Just more lies. Again, you do not know my motives. For the record, my motive is that I am very concerned about the figures I'm getting. Yes, others are arguing against them, but not cogently.
