i saw this floating around somewhere on the net and confirmed it last week, but forgot to post it.

if you go to google, you can take ANY number you like from 2 to 10,005+ (i dont know where it ends-- ive been looking) and add "cases" to it and have a corona number pop up.
if you go to about 14,000, you need to add "corona" to the search for the numbers to appear. i tried typing in the number in quotation marks and i get a corona result every time: "77777" cases corona yields a result.


granted, the results do say "new cases" or "total cases", but here is the question for the mathematicians: is it even possible for every single number to come up in the results?
I think it was @Frank Badfinger who posted a video showing how it works that way. I wouldn’t doubt it..where do they get all their numbers from anyway?

The poison of polarization has clearly infected enough people to spark a partisan pandemic in which incessant hysteria will no longer be in good-faith concern for the public's well-being.

I’ve had covid symptoms since april. Have my occasional weekend where I feel fatigued, sore throat, burning eyes. Got tested out of precaution with my wife being pregnant. Results came back negative the three times.

I don’t know what defines covid anymore. But the quarantine and such has created a loneliness and boredom for some. Trying to keep my 8 year old son engaged has been hard this summer.
