(Detroit Free Press)   That big Fourth of July party on the lake has led to a Covid-19 outbreak. No, the other party on the lake. No, the other other party on the lake   (freep.com) divider line

It's helpful that this party was specifically in the news as an example of what not to do, before news of positive cases resulting from the specific party. It's harder to blame the "libs" for cherry-picking stories after the fact.

On the other hand, most of the people I know who insist COVID is isolated or overblown will maintain that position until the moment they test positive. So this news has no effect.

It does not matter what a human "thinks". They will invent something to think their way to "your right to paarrty!" if one is not provided by an orange clown on TV.

I should of specified that this was a photo of the 'Pottahawk Pissup' - an event on the Canuckustani side of Lake Erie.

All I could think looking at the drone footage was a couple 500 pound bombs and a few strafing runs for survivors would really improve the world a ton.

My mom was getting on my nerves. We spent way too long at the groceries yesterday. WTF. Let's go.


Nevermind I didn't like being in a car with her. But. It been weeks since I seen her.

Oh, look. A bunch of young white people most likely climbing all over each other and passing drinks around to their buddies. "B-B-But protestors!" I hear you cry.  Yes, but they were not passing around booze, were not standing on top of eachother, and were mostly wearing masks (either because of Covid or in anticipation of the inevitable teargas.)

I hadn't noticed how much of a sausage fest that was.  Upon further review of the photo, the male to female ratio is pretty high.

I was assured, just this morning, by certain Fark posters, that the spread of this disease is solely linked to BLM protesters not wearing masks. This is obviously fake news.

That is a yearly party.  Usually there are "burger barges" but, because of the"rona" not this year.  The local police make a fark ton of money arresting under age drinkers, lots and lots of drunks.  It's fun to watch but, being an old farker has made that kind of stuff fond memories.

The older I get, the less I want to be in public for anything....and that was BEFORE COVID-19. At the indoor pool, I noticed how many people go straight into the pool without a shower.....even after taking a dump. At the gym, too many people sweating on the equipment and not wiping it down. For music, nothing bigger than a local club - and then, only if it's not crowded.

/my lawn, get off of it.

The first thing I thought when I saw the pictures was "but what if you have to poop?".

Do you just paddle off a little ways and poop in the ocean? Seems like people would know what you were up to. I'll never own a boat that I can't poop in privately.  Just looking at the pictures I bet 20% of the boats have that option.

Couple of things, Michigan is not connected to an ocean. They're called the Great Lakes.

Second, the first rule of fight club is you don't talk about fight club. The first rule of a boat is that you don't shiat in the loo.

Well, Michigan isn't on an ocean, but it is surrounded by an inland sea. Michigan has more registered boats than any other state, more than even Florida or California, and by far the most per capita.

They're connected to the Ocean via substantial waterways, so it isn't a huge stretch to see them functioning as freshwater seas. Some of the U.S.'s most significant oceangoing / naval shipbuilding operations are located in Wisconsin. New ships just drive out to the Atlantic once they're complete.

I'm aware of that, I'm just kidding around.

And in theory, you could swim from Lake Michigan to the ocean, but that's a long way to go to take a poop.
