Or... itshe weekend, and reporting is jacked.

Besides, you look at the trend over multiple days, not just three.  The otherall trend is up, and not by a little number.

Oh noes, whatever will humanity do once the training ground for apex douchebags turning into a fatal trap that ends up weeding them out of the gene pool?

Oh noes, verily shall our species suffer from the loss of snotty, beer soaked rich kid meatheads spreading STDs from sorostitutes around.

Oh noes, what will happen to our economy when all those upper management positions left vacant because someone's stuck-up privileged brat died horribly and now they may just have to pick someone to fill that role who is actually competent instead?

Truly America will suffer when all the fratboys die of the plague.  Oh woe is us.

i heard the frat nerds came up with a covid cure, but the frat jocks broke into the chem lab and stole the formula. then a nerd discovered wearing a bra cup makes the perfect mask, so all the girls took off their bras, and the nerds won.

Heh.

Seriously, though, there are some messed-up algorithms out there.

I've lately been repeatedly getting ads for "Haircuts for over-sixty women to make you look younger!"

I'm a middle-aged dude, and I can't imagine how.

The libs like to counter my claim with their "moving average" or some other math crap. I don't need math to see the cases tumbling, tumbling towards freedom.

Because it's impossible for frat boys to spread it to the cook and custodian and professors and Dads and Grandmas or anyone else. Once a frat boy gets covid they can only spread it other frat boys.

Good think diseases don't spread! If that were the case, we might need to worry about clusters of disease. But since diseases don't spread, we can just point and laugh at people we don't like who get sick.


I guess you should go talk to the frat boys then, rather than the people mocking them on the internet.

MegaLib: I live / work in a small university town.  We need to stay with remote learning until there us a vaccine.  No schools should reopen now.


Same. They've been testing the wastewater here for COVID and it's spiking already. It's already spreading among the student athletic teams, but they're still reopening with some hybrid half of the class in one day, half the next bullshiat that won't work.

The state college here is testing students (mandatory) once when they get here but no other mandatory testing, and while they are doing contact tracing, students are already saying they don't want to do it for fear of being ID'd as "the one" in their group that got it first and spread it. The two-year school I work at is doing no testing. We are requiring masks but allowing exceptions, so I expect many students will suddenly have breathing issues because mama Karen told them masks are for libs and their little angels are not wearing masks.

They are trying to end classes by Thanksgiving, but what in the meantime? Forbid them from leaving town at all? No trips home to see parents? Make them stay in their dorms or apartments when not in class? No socializing at bars or restaurants without masks? Good farking luck with that.

Online teaching sucks compared to in-person class but even mild cases of COVID can lead to long-term health problems. I am considering quitting and getting training in another field to get the fark out of education.

That is a separate issue. "All the fratboys" are not going to "die of the plague". In fact I think one of the trickest aspects of this disease is that those most likely to spread it are also those least likely to suffer from it.

I'm still trying to figure out what she has been doing for 3.5 years. She has enough money so that she didn't need a no-show job, but aside from a couple of evil things here and there, it doesn't seem like she has done any real work, and certainly nothing to improve education in this country. Maybe that was the whole point, to raise another generation of stupid.

Long story but some of us wanted to party and some other people wanted to turn it in to Oprah's book club.  They called the national fraternity and ratted us out and that was that.
We didn't tolerate any sort of shiat like roofies or anything like that though.  At all.

Yeah Greek houses are pretty close to worst case scenario for infections disease with respiratory transmission. It's basically dorms but with more interpersonal contact since everyone tends to hang out in each other's rooms to play xbox, study, and in some cases consume mood altering substances.

Universities should not even be entertaining an on campus fall semester for lecture classes. Most lab classes should probably move to demo format. Another poster nailed it, college is a worst case incubator then those students travel home on break.

A vehement ring-winger secretly fascinated by teh ghey? Surely not. There would be some sign, like a username indicating an obsession with the genitalia.
