    Virus in US

    The real economy killer isn't sports or concerts or parades. The economy is and will remain toast while schools, camps, and daycares are closed. Kids do not practice social distancing. Not only must parents work from home, but they have an extra job right now home schooling. Right now both sports and education are in the last phase of New York's reopening plan. I don't care about missing my yearly chance to watch the Jets lose in person. But this home schooling is killing me, day after day.
  2. I just took this personally bc I have a college buddy from Hong Kong. It's a mess.
  3. This could be rephrased as "Trump continues to abandon allies and fold to rivals around the world"

    Stadium capacity would need to be 1/3 to 1/4, with 2-3 seats between each person. I don't know how you'd make that work with season ticket holders or psls.

    @El Guapo this is not a flame because you've generally been thoughtful. As you acknowledge, the comparison to the flu is simply not one that holds up under scrutiny. The question is - is covid bad enough to justify the extreme measures taken to contain it? The answer here is most definitely yes. Over and over again this year, countries have tried to carry on. China. Iran. Italy. England. Sweden. In every case, these countries have had to modify their approach when it was clear covid will quickly get out of control. A related question is - can covid be managed with less extreme measures? Here I think answer is yes BUT you still need: 1. Some level of social distancing ie masks, no parades sports etc 2. A robust testing and contract tracing program The later is critical and also is right now an unfunded mandate to the states. The problem with some of the re-opening plans is they treat covid as something that is over, rather than as a continuous risk.
  6. The blip won't just be from earnings but also the shock of the second outbreak in the South. Generally though I believe the market has already priced most of this in. The economic shock will be felt by all the companies outside of the stock market. As things reopen these larger companies will clean up.

    This is what I'm afraid of - the South shutdown out of panic rather than science. And because they did the right thing only accidentally, it will take things actually getting out of control before things get taken seriously again. And thus I'm worried for my family working in healthcare and early childhood education.

    Montgomery, AL has no more ICU beds. Alabama continues to re-open. And on what planet is Clay Travis a reliable healthcare source? Leave this Marcus Mariota nut hugger out of the covid discussion!

    Tl;dr; the problem is getting worse in rural areas that are both ignoring the problem and ill equipped to handle it.

    But more seriously As the death toll nears 100,000, the disease caused by the virus has made a fundamental shift in who it touches and where it reaches in America, according to a Washington Post analysis of case data and interviews with public health professionals in several states. The pandemic that first struck in major metropolises is now increasingly finding its front line in the country’s rural areas; counties with acres of farmland, cramped meatpacking plants, out-of-the-way prisons and few hospital beds. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/05/24/coronavirus-rural-america-outbreaks/?tid=ss_tw
  11. He definitely underestimated the squirrel's jumping ability
  12. You def need a doctor. I used an online service once and it was helpful. Think it was teladoc but am not sure. Recommend urgent care, and definitely recommend calling ahead. Good luck and take care. Edit: to be clear: 1. Call your primary caregiver, ifvyou have one, for advice 2. Consider something like teladoc. It may cost money but can be helpful. Payment might be $75 3. Call urgent care to setup an appointment. Copay for urgent care might be $50 4. Call hospital to setup an appointment Dropping into the ER is always a last resort, it can quickly be hundreds or thousands of dollars. Now with covid you want to be extra careful. Take care. Find a friend or family member to help you out with all this.

    This is weak and you know it. Get yourself some PPE and take care of you and your own.
  15. It still matters, especially down ballot
  16. Everyone's vote matters, the psychology of elections just makes you feel bad if you lose.

    @Denali you are very mistaken on this on. It's a highly communicable respiratory virus that kills 1-5% of the people it infects. Nobody has any immunity yet. Everyone is a potential host. The virus kills young and old. Many people have said exactly what you are saying, and then months later hurriedly shutdown once people are dropping like flies. Face it, the world is a different place.
  18. I don't know where to start Last summer we traveled to Oregon. My son wanted to fish so we bought a rod and reel. We went to a pond stocked with trout. The fish wouldn't bite our line at all. Meanwhile, there was a 10 year old reeling them in one after another. My son made friends with him. His main tip was live bait, but even when he shared bait we didn't get anything. Eventually he gave us a few that we took back and cooked. We'll probably go fishing again, but in New Hampshire next time. There's also plenty of people who fish off Rockaway in NY, but that seems like a whole other level.
  19. Oh man, it was a trap! Fishing is definitely something I know nothing about. There's so much to learn, and it seems you can only learn it from someone who actually wants to teach you.
  20. Randy Miss is the poster child for never reach for a WR in the first round. Even if the greatest WR of all time joins a team with a Hall of Fame QB (Randall Cunningham, Tom Brady) and a great defense, it's still not enough to take your team to a championship.
  21. It's true, I have no sense of humor these days 😕 sorry!
  22. The families of ~86k dead Americans would disagree that it doesn't matter who's in the White House.
