New virus theories (end of the world add on)
  • sht1O at 2020-01-26

    My theory on the Wuhan coronavirus and to generate more

    1. Mix animals together in a stressful place, eg a farm market with butchers

    2. Next cut and mix common viruses to make a new one (or lots of permutations)

    3. Be in contract with potential hosts that can regenerate and spread it (humans)

  • sht1O at 2020-03-12

    And if managing exposure to a new virus

    would it be best to allow 20% to get it ?

  • sht1O at 2020-03-15

    In the UK an expert has said that 60% should get it to prevent it from spreading, this fits a transmission rate of 2.5

    Transmission rates in other countries may vary, have not found any data yet

    1-(1/2.5) = 0.6

    Transmission from body is via coughing, sneezing, talking, breathing (more so if lungs are uncomfortable)

    Transfer is via hands, shared surfaces / air, (aeroplanes recycled air ?), food

    Receive it eating, kissing, hand shaking, breathing

    So don't travel to dine at a business meeting and talk

    Do school children talk while eating?

  • sht1O at 2020-03-20

    1918 virus data

    suggests unborn babies will suffer and their children also, (maybe children of boys and children of daughters of girls)

    It may mutate and have 3 waves

    Maybe strong immunity if you catch it 3 times

  • ypercube ★ at 2020-03-20

    Is this virus similar to the 1918 one?

    That's the first time I hear something like that.

    Also we have much more tools and research available since 100 years ago that I seriously doubt that the effects will be similar.

  • Sighris at 2020-03-20

    Also YperCube, we have antibiotics now, which do not directly affect virus infections but can cure infections which can come along as a side effect.  More info here:–then-and-now

  • sht1O at 2020-03-21

    new spreadsheet estimation (no allowance for real world)

    2019-11-10 back calculated start date for 1 infection

    daily reinfection attempt of 12% (fixed population of 7.7 billion, assume all will be infected)

    mortality rate of 0.4% (of assumed infections)

    2020-05-09 peak of 100 000 deaths a day

    2020-06-30 deaths drop to 600 a day

  • sht1O at 2020-03-24

    Be Vigilant (word from 1918 survivor), in the panic expect what was the unexpected

    Biggest danger is rapid transit systems (spread it to more, faster, further distances)

    Recommend that all mass travellers wear masks and gloves and only if body temperature is below 100 F

    Also reduce speed limits rail and road (to reduce spread and for safety reasons)

    Also use the coolest workers (body temperature is quick to measure)

  • sht1O at 2020-03-25

    Assume the virus is multipartite and don't collect overlapping parts

    Eg virus =abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

    You have abcdef on day 1-6

    You get nopqrst for days 2-10

    tuvwxyz days 4-9

    Efghijklmn day 6-12

    They reassemble full version which lasts for days 7-21

  • sht1O at 2020-03-25

    Two versions 30% s-type and 70% s-type

  • sht1O at 2020-03-25

    S-type and l-type (the worse one)

  • sht1O at 2020-03-27

    Would like to see cryptocurrency creation switched to projects to solve the virus

    such as folding@home

    Maybe need government powers

  • sht1O at 2020-03-27

    minimum safe distances from someone with head at same height (do tall people catch it later?)

    breathing    1m

    coughing    2m

    talking        3m (at a guess, it depends on background noise and hearing)

    sneezing    6m

  • Carroll ★ at 2020-03-28

    Can you send evidence of what you say, instead of babling by yourself? ;)

    Here is an interesting video on SIR simulation variants, maybe you can post your owns : by 3b1b

  • sht1O at 2020-03-28

    Babbling not babling

  • sht1O at 2020-04-01

    There must be a film (or will be) which starts with a pandemic

    And then when some countries reach breaking point and have to use military forces to help

    World war 3 starts

  • sht1O at 2020-05-08

    one thing I can't work out yet is does ACE2 (Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 {which comes from the X chromosome [so maybe faulty version due to stats that less women die from COVID19]})

    convert sars-cov2 into another version of sars-cov2 but maybe in different quantities

    and maybe further convert until the original is reproduced but in greater amounts

  • sht1O at 2020-05-15

    Covid19 social age:- the higher it is the more your group should shield (maybe government adjusts a shielding age)

    it is shared by all members in a connected group (usually a family) and is usually the adjusted age of oldest member

    adjusted age is more like biological age (see

    add more years if:-


    high blood pressure




    chronic kidney disease

    get sick/infected often


    bone/back pain


    impaired wound healing

    bone loss

    hair loss

    muscle pain

    have dark skin



    don't eat much fish/dairy

    live far from equator

    always use sunscreen

    stay indoors

     spend too much time online reading stuff like this

  • sht1O at 2020-05-16

    Renamed covid19 shielding age

  • sht1O at 2020-12-29

    Traffic light idea (babbling)

    Yellow:- been near/with someone with Red worn for 14 days

    Red :- worn for 14 days if you have virus or suspect you have it

    Green :- worn for first 49 days after wearing red, should still have recovery anti bodies, also 14 days after vaccine

    Multiple greens:- one for each virus/vaccine recovery phase, maybe very safe if you have 4 or 5

  • sht1O at 2021-01-15

    Slow the spreadReduce all road speed limits by 10 mph (also reduce accidents adding to health service pressures)Put more tax on road vehicle fuelsReduce speed of trains and increase fares, make all journeys booked via bank cardBan money, only allow bank cards to work within 20 miles of home or work place

    Can't think of any more Orwellian rules yet

  • sht1O at 2021-03-19

    New theory but no data

    The virus is less deadly to first born's (number 1 children) which China has many

    A way to reduce population size but keep generation sizes steady

  • spartacu5 at 2021-03-21

    The major genetic risk factor for severe COVID-19 is inherited from Neanderthals

  • Oakmoss at 2021-03-28

    I think I'm going to use that line and precede every non-sequitur statement I blurt out with “New theory but no data”.

  • sht1O at 2021-07-29

    Green card to last 4 months after having virus or vaccine

  • sht1O at 2021-10-01

    Latest theory

    To test the Emergency use Vaccines quicker

    Inject it into the blood stream, but make it random so it does not look like fast testing of side effects

    Backup no need to Aspirate (draw back on needle, if blood, then in vein, try elsewhere) by referring to outdated 2004 WHO recommendation

    The Emergency use Vaccine is an Intramuscular injection, which releases it a lot slower than if injected into vein

    What is needed is a world vote (but what is best platform)

  • Oakmoss at 2021-10-01

    I think we could do the vote with a show of hands in VRChat. It'll give me the inspiration to finally learn how to rig a 3D model.

  • Carroll ★ at 2021-10-02

    Who is sad ?

  • mmKALLL ★ at 2021-10-04

    “New theory but no data” or “no allowance for real world” makes these sound like random ideas. If the ideas are useful they might be worth telling to vaccine researchers, but I am skeptical about the Little Golem forum being the best way to contact said researchers :)

  • Oakmoss at 2021-10-04

    Little have we known that this whole time Little Golem has been borrowing our brain power to sequence viral genomes under the guise of abstract board games.

  • sht1O at 2021-10-07

    The stiff neck theory :-

    Usual cause, lymphatic system has to swell and strain unwanted cells into 'harmless pieces' (maybe)

    The biggest cells it deals with are:-

    1. Cancerous, more likely if older, male (only one X chromosome, maybe less immune able), smoker, overweight etc

    2. Bacteria, too many dead cells from covid, bad hygiene, dirty masks!

  • sht1O at 2022-01-04

    Next likely mutation theory:-

    Original:- If worst in deep lungs can kill

    Omicron:- If mainly upper airways = quicker to infect, spread and kills less

    Next Maybe:- Throat would be quicker still, but might not spread if it stops people speaking (except maybe New York)

  • Oakmoss at 2022-01-08

    Omega will infect just the lips and spread only by smooches.
