(The Daily Beast)   A Georgia school refused to hold the usual High School Homecoming dance so parents went ahead and did it themselves. Class yearbook will likely be double-sized thanks to all the full-page tributes   (thedailybeast.com) divider line

That happened here in PA too.  The next Monday there were over 20 teachers that called in sick and refused to teach.  They called in for three days in a row.  The parents in this community were pissed at the teachers and not the idiots who hosted the stupid super spreader dance.  apparently having their little high school girls felt up by sweaty boys while disregarding mask guidelines is more important than preventing spread to the vulnerable teachers.  Idiots.

Normally we encourage high schoolers and their teachers not to spread around eachother.

These days it's hard to tell.

FTFA: "The dance was nine days ago," Knight continued. "I have not heard of anyone testing positive who attended the dance. Kids need to have some normalcy to help with anxiety and depression. Don't you agree?"

I'm going to go out on a limb here, but based on what I read about Ms. Knight in the article, I don't think kids are going to get a lot normalcy around her.

I blame video games for the violence, rap music for rude conversations, tv and movies for sexual impurities, etc..  Thank goodness you have the fine upstanding conservatives and religious leaders of the south of setting the example of do unto others...

To be fair, the CDC has explicitly said multiple times that there's no confirmed link between clumsy and timid fingerblasting and COVID19 spread.

"nine days ago"


I have been saying since March; COVID-19 is an IQ test based on a single question. Can someone process the fact "10 days asymptomatic and contagious"?

There is a whole shiatload of people failing right now.

havocmike: between clumsy and timid fingerblasting


All these kids did was sit on the sofa, and shoot selfies and posted them to their favorite social media sites. No one has time for any clumsy and timid fingerblasting.

the selfie is way more important then that.

If this is how we, as a society, behave during a pandemic of a virus that kills roughly 1% of those infected, imagine how many will die if this virus mutates to something more deadly? Or worse, imagine how many will die if something far nastier hits us. 

Part of me almost wants this thing to turn deadlier, even if it means I lose my own life or worse, loved ones. I think the American people need a metaphorical smack to the face to snap out of this stupid...brain cloud...we've shrouded ourselves in. Then the rational part of me interjects that this moronic populous wouldn't change unless the death toll was in the millions. 

That got me wondering. How many dead do you think it would take for Americans to finally wake up and realize that there is a problem in our society? One million? Three? Five? More? If you had asked me this time last year if 250k dead would have been enough to move the needle I'd laugh at how high the number was. Now...? I don't even know anymore.

alitaki: f this is how we, as a society, behave during a pandemic


Trust me on this...The terrorists and other enemies of the US are paying very close attention on how we're reacting to this covid mess.

Biological warfare is real...and look how quickly this covid took the us (and other places) to their knees. Over populated hospitals, not enough places to bury the dead, the impact on economic and political issues.

They don't need to drop a bomb or crash planes anymore...Nope. Just send a virus.

We have two different friends that hosted a grad party for their seniors in October because their kids missed out on that. Neither of the kids wanted the party. The parents wanted $ for their kids.  We did not attend either.

Suspend anyone who attended for 2 weeks + 2 negative COVID tests (the earliest test must be after the 2-week suspension is served).

Do not allow any make-up work.  The just fail everything they miss.

"Dancing it off," one apparent attendee posted on Instagram, squatting in front of a wall, with students in black and red dresses behind him. "This do be our last hoco," wrote another student. ("Hoco" appears to be the vogue term for "homecoming.")...

...The pair said they helped plan the dance but were afraid that press coverage would "ruin" their football team's efforts to compete in one last game of the season on Friday.


Oh no. If they die who is going to work all the unskilled moron proof jobs they're creating nowadays?

Jobs?  Seriously? If there's any bigger covid waves coming, its going to kill any local jobs. Restaurants will close again, no one will be delivering food. Mom and Pop stores (if there is even still a thing) will close down.
 
2020-11-25 8:31:16 AM  
It's the perfect metaphor for us Americans. I have seen it everyday my entire life. In the supermarkets. On the highways. During my tenure as a teen working in the food industry.

Most of the general public are not only lacking common sense, but they are selfish. Half are very stupid even though they are educated. This virus amplifies it.

You must wear a mask and social distance to keep others from getting it.

I'm not saying all people are like this. Unfortunately, it appears to be a slight majority..
