    I started to believe I had it with all the coughing and spluttering I have been doing. Went to my doc and all I have wrong is some minor smoke inhalation issues due to the really bad air right now because of all the fires. Have a good thought in your head for all our firefighters that are dealing with these fires, I know my guy is tired as all hell when I talk to him. Plus these damn fires are cutting into my social life, in that I do not have one right now worrying about my smoke eater 😉 But that does not shock me we are number one seeing as tangerine twatwaffle did fuck all at the beginning of this like he should have, But hey, we’re getting tax breaks so that should cover it 🙂

    I’ve become dubious, at best, with lists like this.

    The UK might be second. On the other hand it might not.

    Different countries appear to have followed different methods of recording Covid deaths.

    Public Health England’s method has already been shown to have wrongly inflated the death toll.

    We believe these statistics or we don’t. I don’t, some do. Proving who’s correct is, currently, impossible.
