So this means the incubation period is now somehow doubled?

After a doobie or too, you eat so many Doritos it kills the virus dead.

Given that the study was conducted in Oregon, should we really be surprised at its conclusion?

Clankie--Here in the Southwest we have some hot peppers that will kill any virus. If some new virus comes along a kills, you off after eating these peppers, there is some hope that in the afterlife your taste buds will return in operating condition and not be smoking.

So Cheech and Chong were medical pioneers ?

Le Pet, I had Covid right before Christmas, and the chills prompted me to launch into jalapeno overload. I was back to normal in two days.

Rod Nunley, I'm glad you're feeling better now.

Snoop Dogg will never have a sniffle. Neither will some guys I went to college with.

Rod Nunley---There's nothing tastier than an order of jalapeno poppers. I was referring to ghost peppers, habaneros and mainly the Carolina Reapers, that have an SHU of up to 2 million. I was taught that the Scoville Heat Units (SHU's) were an auditory scale. Wesley Scoville is a research scientist who started measuring how loud he screamed after eating a test pepper. Any peppers under a million SHU's were just moderately hot. I am told that after eating a Carolina Reaper, Wesley Scoville overloaded his tester which exploded and destroyed his laboratory. This event forced him to retire to a rehab center until he recovers.
