      I'm far less concerned about the testing at this point than I am with actually treating it.  Case numbers will only go up, treating it and lowering the death toll stat is what I'm worried about.  And people are stepping up to help manufacture equipment and find treatments and get that moving.

      @Redux If you're pinning your hopes on treatments being found in a timely manner, well, good luck with that...

      Obviously not.  The 18 month pipe dream is not happening either.  But I'd feel kuch much better hearing updates on that front instead of everyone complaining about test numbers being factual or unfactual.

      Can infowars really be called a news source?

      @macroboy So long as there are people who treat it as such, yes.

      infowars had white house credentials given to them.   someone was treating them like they were a news source.

      My youngest son's father in law had a band years ago that opened several concerts for KR. They were supposed to do several more but their van died on the way and they couldn't get there. That ended that gig.

  4. What kind of car would you drive to commit a bank robbery?  Asking for a friend.

      ^^^Ding, ding, dingwinner, winner chicken dinner.  I'd use someone else's vehicle, probably a rental.  It'd have lots of DNA evidence from others in it.  Of course I wouldn't rent it myself.  I wouldn't want to be on camera associated with that vehicle.  Instead, I'd steal it from someone else who rented it.  It might even be a good idea to use a truck—like a pickup truck or small moving van.  A pickup truck would be best.  That way I could have a dirt bike strapped down in the back in case things went haywire.  Also, pickups are a more comfortable ride.  They better on the back for tall guys like me!

      Sucks.  Buddy owns a bar and it is tough times for them.  The only things recession proof is usually bars, education, and medical.  I guess pandemics is a whole other ball game.

      I'm thinking it might be a good time to open a bar in a couple months or so: Cheap labor to help build out the space right now while everyone else is closed; Plenty of bar tenders and waitresses looking for work; Quite a few establishments are going belly up due to being closed for so long.  (Is is evil that I think this way??  lol)

      I'm doing outdoor activities all year round,  I keep a emergency bag of supplies, toilet paper included in my truck, boats,  on the atv and snowmobile, but in a pinch in summer, button weed is ideal,fall winter and early spring is when I come home missing a sock.

  7. So ... what ARE the odds of Nebraska winning the next Superbowl?

    1. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      IDK but it has to be similar to the odds of the Denver Broncos winning it.

  8. Khalil clocks a 4.76.  Fasted 40 time since 2003 for player over 300 lbs.  Brother Carlos clocks 4.82.  Both all time top ten times for players over 300 lbs.

      I saw a few minutes of this Saturday. Daniels was closely followed by one of the Davis twins.  The announcer made the statement " Nebraska has 3 DLmen at the combine and they still couldn't stop anyone."

      Heh, it might've had something to do with the guys standing right behind them.   The operative word there is "standing".

      I've heard 84HuskerLaw has access to all results of Husker conditioning.  I'm not saying everyone should send him a PM asking for them but I'm also not saying everyone should send him a PM asking for them.

      Really, it should be called 'late signing day' now. And there's not much reason to attach the word 'early' to the December signing day - it's the normal signing day now.

      Not high expectations.  But not dead last either.  (Actually NW is behind us in the conf. standings.  Their only win was us.)

       

  16. Does the National Do Not Call Registry work?  I've been reporting calls for a year and a half now and it seems like I get just as many junk calls as ever.

      So, the short answer is no, the DNC registry does not work. I would encourage my legislators to make telemarketing a capital offense punishable by death to any and all who work for that telemarketing company. And then we can start on the television advertisers who exceed the sound level limits they are supposed to comply with.

      Dude, that volume level one is honestly the biggest issue with this country today.

       

      That and the "soap opera" effect that TV's have.

      Soap opera effect is probably just Husker football

      Not for long. Mahomes gonna  get paid and some of those pieces will start to disappear.  We will see if he is an all time great when he has to play over his salary to overcome roster deficiencies. Right now they probably have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL.

  19. KU vs KSU.  A few guys will miss games over this.

      De Sousa is lucky he couldn’t find a Kstate player to hit with that chair. If he plays again this season (bench warmer, they’ll make an example out of him), it’s a shame.

    1. Mavric

      Two max but most likely one - save the other for a transfer.

       

      WR or DL is most likely.

      Half the board falling over themselves to either justify, normalize, or minimize child pornography in the Mo Washington thread - perfectly fine.  

       

      Just don't joke about the subject.   That's crossing the line somehow.

      Even if a call like that had helped out Nebraska I'd be able to acknowledge it's a bad call.  I think most Husker fans could.  Or I hope so anyway.

      @NUance IMO, I can’t believe they overturned it. I thought for sure it would’ve stayed with the call on the field.
