This is how a non-science person writes a 'science' article about Quercetin

Excerpt: "Researchers in Québec are hopeful that a drug derived from plants could be the key to curing infections caused by the novel coronavirus.

The broad spectrum anti-viral medicine known as quercetin has already proven successful at treating Ebola and Zika viruses, says Dr. Michel Chrétien, a researcher at the Clinical Research Institute of Montreal."

Rin's response: Hey, fucking idiot writer, it's not a DRUG, it's a flavonol from the flavonoid group of polyphenols. Here's something for you and your stupid editing team to read ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quercetin ). This is not a DRUG, it's a food supplement or vitamin, which is not patentable as a drug where one needs to synthesize (yes, that's a term used in the field of chemistry) in a lab and scaled up in a factory.

Excerpt: "Some patients infected with COVID-19 are currently being treated with a variety of anti-viral drugs, some with a price tag upwards of $1,000 per injection, Mbikay says. Quercetin, by comparison, would cost just $2 per day."

Rin's response: What are you shopping for? ... some Lamborghini brand of a vitamin! Try more like 20 to 40 cents per day ( https://www.amazon.com/Quercetin-Powerfully-Cardiovascular-Bioflavonoids-Celllular/dp/B07H9LGDPM/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=quercetin&qid=1601765848&sr=8-6 )

Yeah, let's just hope that their test subjects are into seaweed and oysters.

What's become painfully obvious is that the Covid crisis did not result in a Dream Team, as in the 1992 US Men's Olympic basketball team's response in Barcelona.

Instead of the following:

You literally described every Covid, global warming, etc article out there.

FYI, for those who don't remember (or see the the gif clearly), that was a behind-the-back pass from Michael Jordan to Larry Bird, from half-court, for a corner 3.
