@Marc2mrkt -- Yep. That's more evidence that it's just not easy to transmit when asymptomatic via air.

I'm sure it's POSSIBLE, but not easy.

But fecal/oral is ridiculously easy any time there is surface/surface contact with someone's body. Remember polio had an R0 of 5! That sounds INSANE but it did, and it was almost-exclusively fecal/oral transmission. In fact of all the "nasties" I believe only chicken pox and measles score materially higher.

A large percentage of the cases of polio (nearly all in fact!) were either asymptomatic or very mild flu-like -- and that conferred immunity. Sound familiar?

But the few that weren't got into the nervous system and fucked you HARD, and just like this bitch the older you were the more-likely you were to get fucked too.

Interestingly enough part of why polio got to be so ugly in the US is that with greatly improved plumbing and water systems little kids didn't get a dose of it when they were very young, where the risk was almost zero of it getting them the bad way. But they'd eventually get exposed. So, rather amusingly, "white man sanitation" as it rolled through the nation fucked people with polio as instead of being exposed to it by the time they were toddlers they got hit by it as older children or adults.

"Perhaps you can keep things together and advance playing DIE games.
Or perhaps the truth is that white men w/IQs >= 115 or so built all of it and without us it will collapse."
