Wandering the information superhighway, he came upon the last refuge of civilization, PoFo, the only forum on the internet ...

Theories and happenings too odd for the main forums.

So the UK government, which pulled the country out of the EU, is also part of it.

However, what's the point, if I may ask? :?:

Guys I just saw this on youtube and honestly it is quite spooky. In this TED talk posted to youtube back in 2015 Bill Gates is talking about how an infectious disease could kill more people than a nuclear war. He uses as an example the Spanish Flu of 1918 and at time stamp 4.57 his infographic displays the total dead to be.. get this... 33,365,533 at day 263. Fuck. Start with the big number obviously there is 33 there twice but also the numbers in the middle are pretty freaky. 6+5 is 11 so you could read 365 as 3x6+5 = 33. The 533 at the end adds up to 11 which again is handy for making 33 out any of the 3s there. Even day 263 is funky because 263 adds up to 11 and if you divide the 6 by the 2 you get 3 which with the 3 on the end makes 33. That all could be just some freaky coincidence but where did he get such freaky precise numbers... Think about it, the Spanish flu happened 100 years ago all over the world. Most of the world is not keeping accurate records at that time, and they still are not today. There is no way you could have such a precise number or such a precise end date. The most accurate you could realistically be is to estimate something like 30 million or so after x months.

I tried to find another source for the number that perished in the Spanish Flu and I get this:

Nancy Bristow's book "American Pandemic: The Lost Worlds of the 1918 Influenza Epidemic" (Oxford University Press, 2016) explains that the virus affected as many as 500 million people around the world. At the time, this represented a third of the global population. As many as 50 million people died from the virus, though the true figure is thought to be even higher.

Note the loose numbers "as many as 50 million", "thought to be even higher". That is more realistic kind of language for the death count.

Call me paranoid but this is a bit whiffy.
the best experts put the death toll from the spanish flu from anywhere between 21 million and 100 million.. Bill Gates: 33,365,533 :lol:

That's freaky.

Alexa mentions Event 201 and that is apparently a real thing. It is some sort of joint exercise between our glorious benefactor Bill Gates, John Hopkins Centre of Health Security and the World Economic Forum.

They have a webpage for it:

Event 201
The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.

Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise

In recent years, the world has seen a growing number of epidemic events, amounting to approximately 200 events annually. These events are increasing, and they are disruptive to health, economies, and society. Managing these events already strains global capacity, even absent a pandemic threat. Experts agree that it is only a matter of time before one of these epidemics becomes global—a pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences. A severe pandemic, which becomes “Event 201,” would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions.

Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise
In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China. To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic. We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019.
