    there is nothing in that article that even remotely says it was man made. It only says it didn’t originate at the exact spot they had thought it had. And in fact it’s the Chinese, who would have the most to gain from the market story, that are saying it happened earlier.

    The story going around was that the Live animal market in Wuhan is where the virus originated from.. Crossed over from bats to humans. (or maybe an intermediate host). Those who pointed to the very obvious Wuhan institute of Virology, a bio weapons lab, as the logical culprit, were shouted down with those who insisted that the virus originated in the Live animal market. Although the article doesn't say anything about the virus being manufactured, the mere fact it says it didn't come from the market is very telling in itself.

    The South China Morning Post is owned by Alibaba (Jack Ma, who is a member of the Communist party). This is a big admission from them.

    If you look at the coronovirus thread, I have been quoting the SCMP for weeks for that reason.
    But the fact that they are actually being open about it not originating in the market works against a conspiracy theory. It would be in their interest to claim it was animals, not prove it wasn’t. What is happening is that China took a ton of heat internally and externally over their install handling of it, and are working hard to regain that trust.
    Bottom line is that sometimes man is the victim sometimes and not the cause, we don’t hold dominion over everything, as much as we try.
    And again, every major health agency on the planet is looking at this virus, if it were manufactured we would have known a month ago to screaming headlines.

    Doesn’t say man made. Chinese scientist say to a Chinese newspaper it might be from somewhere else. Article didn’t explain it.

    Edit: oops. Late to party. See those above me said same thing.

    Oh wait... it’s only the Presidents fault when stocks go up. When it goes down it’s Bernie’s fault according to Fox...

    This based on the coronavirus. This isn't triggered because it is due (although we are due) or bad earnings.

    Getting beaten up again today, though not as badly. It opened higher, but quickly sank.

    Down 1,900 points in two days. Coranavirus seems be rattling the market big time.

    They are predicting it will cut 2% off China’s GDP. If it goes to an international pandemic, we are screwed.

    That's a fake tweet. The guy who did it had some fun with the misspellings and arbitrary quote marks though. I can see why people thought it was real. It reads just like a real Trump tweet.

    I think a partied with a Dow Joans at a kegger at the strip club on OBT. Those beer googles made her look really hot. From what I remember which is not much. :emoji_beers::emoji_confounded:

    the number of cases in China is already falling and it’s initial spread was due to a completely opaque Chinese system. But people gonna panic.

    I suspected it wasn’t real cause it was a pic and not a tweet link. It was funny though. And really it’s less crazy than most. Lol.
