Who is who? I reckon @Gronk is $BW.
Piss of ya f**king rabbit
But when IALB posts about kids and bikes...
Welcome to...what was it...the rational centre...?
I was talking to a real estate agent about the coming fall in house prices (my 20% fall prediction is looking more likely by the week) and he was all, like, "Everyone keeps saying that but in my 20 years in real estate it has never happened!"
When I replied with "But we haven't had a recession in 30 years..." it literally crashed his brain, and he stammered and did the "I have to go now" routine.
Everyone who lives what I call "The Instagram Life" just has these blinkers on and has this attitude of "Just get this temporary inconvenience over so I can go back to my old life". You seriously can't reason with these people.
Ever thought that the "I've got to go now" routine might have had more to do with the fact the he suddenly realised he was alone in a house with a man in a robe who started talking about pedophiles and pizza parlours and looking for signs of lizard people in the bathroom...
You’ve misinterpreted the posts, Einstein.
Mine was a reflection on the apparent dumbing down of the paediatric mortality when it comes to the covid. Kids die every year, so ....
The bicycle post was dumb because we have compulsory PPE for bikes n scooters here.
Are you saying that kids don't die riding bikes in Australia?
No they tend to die when hit by a bus.
Maybe you'd best take it up with the ABS.
When infant deaths are included, there were 1,473 child injury deaths between 1999 and 2003. Children who had died from injuries were more likely to have died in transport accidents, than in any other way: 587 children aged 0-14 years (40%) died this way between 1999 and 2003. This was about twice as many as died from accidental drowning, the next most common cause of child injury death.
Boys were consistently more likely to have died in transport accidents than girls across all child age groups. The difference was greater among 10-14 year olds (150 boys compared with 77 girls) than among 1-4 year olds or 5-9 year olds.
In most deaths that were the result of a transport accident, the child was either the occupant of a motor vehicle (44% of deaths) or a pedestrian (35%). The remaining deaths were in accidents where the child was a pedal cyclist (5%) or motorcycle rider (4%), or were other transport accidents (12%). Children were much more likely than adults to have been a pedestrian in the accident (16% of people aged over 15 years). remaining deaths were in accidents where the child was a pedal cyclist (5%) or motorcycle rider (4%), or were other transport accidents (12%). Children were much more likely than adults to have been a pedestrian in the accident (16% of people aged over 15 years).
That’s what I said. Kids die when they get hit by buses. I get it now. Because kids die on their way to school, that makes it ok that they die from the covid. How am I going ?
Nearly every kid rides a bike. Not nearly every kid gets COVID. That's why it's a dumb comparison. Move on.
So all the kids that were classed as bicycle accidents were actually hit by buses and therefore they aren't bicycle accidents at all?
Nearly every kid will be exposed to Covid-19. In the US, whose stats aren't all that different to ours for bike accidents, most probably have been exposed. I suppose you also think the comparison between flu deaths in children is dumb too.
There's a lot of assumptions in that post.
