Krazikarl: And just to give an example:

Under California's "Stay at Home" order, it was perfectly fine to do many outdoor activities as long as you could social distance.  This included jogging and hiking:​virus/list-outdoor-activities-allowed-​in-california-during-stay-at-home-orde​r/2283995/

Going at people for doing something that was legal and safe is a classic example of "you're not helping".

So, have you reached your goal weight, or given up on the jogging already?

I'll be staying inside all day today. Inside the boat. Unless I get out of it to swim. But you doomers don't forget to duct tape those window cracks.

And that's how the Maine Yankess say it also, without the rhotacism, or with rhotacism, I think they are the same damn thing, actually.

Ka-TAAAAAAH-den. You have to be born Mainer or at least Yankee. Some Brits might manage it.

If you can say ayuh, you can say Katahden...


Yeah, but you have to give the flatlanders and Summer Folk a chance...

Old fat people climb that mountain in great numbers every year. It amazes me to see the people who do it without breaking their necks. Not surprised at all that some do.

Talked with a ranger years ago who described waiting for a helicopter with a guy who didn't speak English and had fallen backwards, cracking open his head. The guy used his limited language skills to beg the ranger to kill him for hours while they waited. I try to be careful myself :)
