The P&R Plague Thread (Covid-19)

Recommended Posts

Not that complicated to figure it out... Probably would have been better as three sperate lines starting from zero though.

The better graph I found was on a cdc website that has the actual deaths every month. There is a very clear and distinct spike over the last several months.

Wanting to get drunk and party is not as important as wanting people who look like you to not get murdered by the police. 

 

On a personal level, my mom is having surgery in a few weeks. I’m going to be going to a hospital and picking her up and then living with her for awhile. But in the meantime I don’t go visit her face to face unless we’re all going to keep our distance and I don’t hang out inside her house. Some things are worth being more risky for.

i have seen newscasters commenting on that.  it isn't being ignored if that is what you are trying to say.  but as mraine said...some things are more important then others.    i also noticed many people WERE wearing masks at the riots.   some people will follow the rules even when rioting.

I am gonna guess that any of them that were smashing windows, stealing and hurting people were not thinking "s#!t, I better make sure my mask is on, I don't want to hurt anyone by spreading germs"

 

I will go ahead and concede that the others, the actual peaceful protesters, that they were wearing masks because they were following rules.

Keep in mind that no one shot tear gas at the peaceful protestors with their AR15's at the government buildings...

 

But somehow, they have shot rubber bullets and tear gas and concussion grenades with no provocation at the peaceful protestors now.  Of course, most of them aren't white...so I guess that tells us something.

I watched video of a dude spraypainting the columns of a building downtown while not wearing a mask and then look straight at the camera. So there’s also that special group of people who are just dumb.

I know it's already happening a little.

 

But it's gonna be weird when we have an outbreak and the people who were saying Covid wasn't a big deal blame it all on protesters and on nothing else, even though they would've been fine with people going to sold out sports events and concerts.

Has anyone seen anything linking beach openings or park openings or golf course openings with greater rates of infection? That started, what?  A month ago?  And there was quite a bit of uproar over it, but I'm not sure if there's been a direct correlation between those events and infection rates.

 

The last few weekends my friends have been getting together at a local park on the weekends. We bring our lawn chairs and hang out with our coffee and catch up. It's been great, and I don't feel the least bit guilty about it.

I'm very curious about this.  I keep seeing/hearing comments that infection rates are going up, but if you look at Worldometer, it's been going steadily down.  The deaths have dropped off to almost 50% of what they were.

 

My wife and I just talked about this at noon.  We feel we will start living our lives fairly normally, but we still don't have any desire to go some place with big crowds.  Last night we were at some friends house having a few beers....but, we don't have a desire to go to a big concert or Husker football game type of event right now.

 

Golf league is starting tonight.  There are a few restrictions put in place, but others they said they were going to do have been eliminated.  I'm fine. 

 

I guess I have the feeling that so many people are saying "f#&% it" and forgetting everything, that it's sort of put up or shut up time.  It's either going to fade off like some people think, or it's going to come back and slap us in the face really hard.  I hope it fades, but then, I guess we will know.
