edmo: Not "could," "will."


I remember the good ol' days of predicting we would be at 9/11 level deaths on a daily basis by "next week".

Boy those were some fun times.

I'm guessing 5000+ daily deaths roughly two weeks before Christmas

But we can't cancel the big Christmas family gatherings and parties. It could be their last one!

I agree that there is dissonance in the messaging when you're saying  Uncle Bob and Aunt Martha can't come over for Thanksgiving but it's fine to meet them at Flingers for pizza shooters.

The solution to that mixed messaging, of course, is to close down the farking restaurants, not invite Uncle Bob and Aunt Martha over. But here we are.

Restaurants are still open here in the Socialist Republic of Washington State, at least.

Yeah, restaurants are open, but nobody is suggesting to meet up with people there. The common recommendation is to only go with people already in your unit and mask up any time other than seated at your table.

Actually, I confess my news is out of date. The governor has closed dining rooms as on Nov 15. I don't really care, because I sure as shiat don't want to catch covid, so I haven't been paying close attention.

I mean, I like "recommendations" as much as the next guy, but we can see how well that's been working.

The problem is, recommendations are the best we can manage since governors are getting hamstrung by the legislatures (and now SCOTUS) whenever they try to actually mandate safety measures.

You are correct. But when you and I hear "You shouldn't go to restaurants or have people over for Thanksgiving" too many other people hear "You can go to restaurants and have people over if you really want to"

There is no mixed message.
We would not stand for a real lock down. And business people taint all guild lines. In all likelihood they was advised much more stricter policies and cried about their profits. At every single proposal.
6 ft probably more likely to be 12 or 15.
and in all likelihood it was proposed that they strictly limit how many people are in any building in any given time.

And all likelihood it was suggested that all restaurants be closed.
Or only do take out.
Same with bars.


And all like the hood business concerns cried about all of it kicking and screaming .
Until everything was watered down and or inconsistent.

So please STFUYSMF

Based on the last ten days' average growth we're looking at just under 28,000,000 cases on inauguration day.  I predict that by Dec 5 the TG surge will push that over 30,000,000.  That means ten to fifteen million contagious people and God only knows how many in need of hospitalization simultaneously. It will not be good.

When every single day includes a headline to the effect of "$BAD_THING sets a new record", that's a hint that you might want to eventually start doing something about it.

Clearly you've never heard the term:

Bobby has no brains.

which is kind of odd because it should actually be more along the lines of Bobby has no brain.

And yet I've never heard it said like that.

It warms my heart to know that states that worship trump are getting their hopes and prayers answered.  They will get to meet jeebus as he sends them to burn in hell.

They voted for trump.  They want to die of a Democrat hoax.  I never have sympathy for the intentionally ignorant.

This dovetails perfectly with the "I went to a spin class at the gym and everybody wore masks before and after working out, how is it that everybody in the entire class got Covid?" story a month ago.

You're inside, without masks, spraying droplets by talking, while the air circulators make sure everyone breaths everyone else's air.

I kinda feel like the kid in the class that has been behaving while a couple others keep farking up and getting the whole group detention. What's my motivation not to fark up? I guess it's always going to be a thing of degrees so I won't act up but still, these people are literally killing folks.

IDK, maybe the half the class that was wearing the masks on their chin? At this point I just hope the cats do better with their evolutionary process.

Nope, it really is this stupid: they wrote masks *before* and *after* working out... not during.

Wearing a mask to go dine inside at a restaurant... EXCEPT when you're at a table, facing each other and talking, is almost as stupid.

It's not stupid for restaurants. People do spit large droplets which fall to the ground within a short distance. Wearing a mask will stop someone from delivering a large viral dose as they walk by someone else's table. It will reduce the overall chance of transmission even if it doesn't address the issue of the small suspended droplets drifting between tables as people eat.

I don't disagree all I know was that intro was so epic I found myself wondering why I bother with Metallica And then after the intro I was quite disappointed
