Have you ever wished that all the stupid people would just kill themselves?

They're doing it.

Exactly, they're not dying in any meaningful numbers, this isn't the Spanish flu, they're being willing hosts that carry the virus far and wide, killing your grandma, your kid's English teacher, or my sister-in-law the ICU stepdown nurse.

People who organize things like this should be held responsible if anyone dies from it.

Damn I guessed wrong.  I did not pick Jackson as the location. Not were I typically associate entitled rich folks in my state..  They need to keep that shiat North of Trenton

FTA: "I looked out the front door and all I saw was droves and droves of cars just coming down, and packs of kids, young adults walking all along our sidewalk...." neighbor Karen Levine

Oh noes - on the sidewalk???????

Don't even need to make this shiat up.

Of course...

Don't get me wrong; the party was definitely a stupid move, but they couldn't grab ANYONE else for a quote?

We need to build covid concentration camps. Caught at a party? Don't want to wear a mask at the supermarket? Publicly call it a hoax?

Now you get to live in a building where COVID-19 is pumped through the ventilation system at full blast until you get the 10X viral load.

The ones who hosted the party are black. FTFA, Patience Guanue, 23 and Alicia Hinneh, 22, both of Newark, NJ, who did this with the intent of celebrating "Liberian Independence Day the right way".

So question about AirBNB, hearing what we've heard about people trying to walk out hotel rooms with everything from ashtrays to paintings to TVs to actual furniture, wouldn't an unsupervised Airbnb be worse?
Also what can be done?

Jackson has full on become Lakewood.  It's been absorbed. Check out the name of the guy who owns the BNB.

A small (but noticeable) uptick in the 7-day average for NJ. Then again, there were a couple lab reporting irregularities that might have skewed things, but still enough new cases that NJ went from a 7-day average of 200 new cases/day to 400 new cases/day.

NJ will end up on NJ's own quarantine list.

Ocean County is a lost cause. Lakewood is a pit, and has been since forever. If I told you why, I'd be called an anti Semite and banned.

/all my Tribe friends & girlfriends in high school hated Lakewood and the people in it...so there. From what I gather, they're not too fondly appreciated in the Motherland, either.

Yup, South Jersey.

Meanwhile, in a saner part of the state, here's a bear, walking up my neighbor's driveway:

meanwhile airbnb is apparently no where near any named legal trouble for this, even though an actually licensed transient/temporary lodging business in that municipality would have been in serious trouble risking their business license there to do so.

Private individuals making money are the least trustworthy humans on all of planet earth, that's why we fooking regulate and license business operations.

uber and aiabnb and all the rest are just libertarian wet dreams being rubbed out openly in flagrant disregard for the public saftey/public trust.

3700 sqft is a McMansion???      When did they change it, I missed the meeting.

How big is a Mansion then?  1800-2400 sqft?

A McMansion is SMALLER, not bigger than a real mansion.

1800-2400 sq ft sounds like plain old house. 3700 sq ft could be a McMansion, though I think there is an age (newish) and property size qualification (smallish) for one too. I think the term Mansion applies when the bathroom count is in double digits.

I thought McMansion was more about the garish cheapiness than the square footage?

Build quality as well.  Cheaply built, corners cut everywhere, cheap finishes, typically large national or regional builders squeezing every dime they can out of the build.

Jackson just started the process to ban short term AirBNB's and daily pool rentals.  It will be challenged and likely killed.

https://www.nj.com/ocean/2020/07/town​-​where-700-person-airbnb-party-was-held​-wants-to-ban-short-term-rentals.html

Daily pool rentals are a thing.  Porta Potties get set up in a McMansion yard with a big pool, and they alternate days or hours on who can come in and charge for entry.
