We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Yes, he's a bit of a conspiracy nut, but that kind of mentality is what gives him the boldness to present the facts in this article.

This guy is an actual brain surgeon ... can you dispute any of his medical/scientific facts as presented in the article? :mex:

BTW his eventual-euthanasia concerns are not explained in the Wiki page, and the link to further explanation is broken...

Did you catch Dr Henry yesterday? She said homemade masks are the least effective means of prevention and should only be used if you are symptomatic, caring for someone who is symptomatic, or for very brief times when social distancing or engineering can not be utilized. A couple of days ago she was adamant that she would not be requiring masks.

I think the biggest issue is their misuse.

Grocery run yesterday, elderly couple in black gloves handling everything they see in the store.

4 active cases in Interior Health.

Canada should send teams from Ontario, BC, Quebec, and maybe a Alberta/Sask/Manitoba Prairie team for the World Cup or whatever the next best on best tournament would be. Give the other teams a chance.
Even though Canada tends to be the favourite in most tournaments, and quite often win, the record does show that we do have a chance.















We actually lost this one, after playing five full periods and hitting the post with less than two minutes remaining of the fifth, but it’s perhaps the best international ever played.

Fantastic game. Make sure to watch it! (this is part 2, but part 1 is also available on youtube)


And here is some very rare footage: Sep 17th 1972, an all amateur Swedish team takes on the best paid professional players from Canada in a preparation game ahead of the Summit Series and manage to get a draw, 4-4, despite taking a lot of injuries.
Basically the Swedes were better skaters, but the Canadians were more physical.

Roughly half of the players later ended up in the NHL and/or WHA, so I guess the Canadians were impressed.

The clash between two very different brands of hockey. The full game. Enjoy! 8-)


...and just for the heck of it... ;)

Cannabis extracts may help to prevent coronavirus, preliminary study suggests

Canadian researchers are studying the potential for marijuana to be used to prevent coronavirus infections.

Researchers at the University of Lethbridge in Calgary are studying more than 400 strains of cannabis and have determined that at least a dozen may offer potential as part of treatments to prevent coronavirus from infecting a host.

According to the researchers, the effective strains have, in some instances, managed to reduce virus receptors, which reduces the chance for an individual to catch coronavirus.

"A number of them have reduced the number of these receptors by 73 per cent, the chance of it getting in is much lower," Dr Igor Kovalchuk told the Calgary Herald. "If they can reduce the number of receptors, there's much less chance of getting infected."
Oh Canada! The Brown Wizard is going to live forever! :shock:

If we're lucky, Trump will drop the hydroxychloroquine and start smoking dope! Can you imagine the WH briefings!?

Yeah, even Fox News freaked out a bit over Trump admitting to be taking hydroxychloroquine, but I support his right to do so!

His body, his choice! :D

Heck, if he wants to inject disinfectants straight into his lungs and stick a UV light up where the sun don’t shine, I’m fine with that too. :thumbs:

It’s still a free country (despite several attempts of overreach from the executive branch). :look:

5D chess...


Ladies and gentlemen...the great Ben Harper:

Let us burn one
From end to end
And pass it over
To me my friend
Burn it long, we'll burn it slow
To light me up before I go
If you don't like my fire
Then don't come around
'Cause I'm gonna burn one down
Yes I'm gonna burn one down
My choice is what I choose to do
And if I'm causing no harm
It shouldn't bother you
Your choice is who you choose to be
And if your causin' no harm
Then you're alright with me
If you don't like my fire
Then don't come around
'Cause I'm gonna burn one down
Yes I'm gonna burn one down
Herb the gift from the earth
And what's from the earth
Is of the greatest worth
So before you knock it try it first
You'll see it's a blessing
And it's not a curse

If you don't like my fire
Then don't come around
'Cause I'm gonna burn one down
Yes I'm gonna burn one, duh
Witchcraft... Oh, but it IS. A dark and terrible magic...
