Politics And Current Events

The "I aint wearin no mask" population is extraordinarily small yet we act like it's an enormous group and the reason for the spread. I legitimately don't know a single person thats anti mask and I'm mostly surrounded by conservatives. I’ve got a coworker who tried walking into Walmart without one ...

COVID-19

So when schools reopen and a kid gets diagnosed with the virus. What happens? How many days would have already passed where it would have spread? Do you close the school and clean? Do you close just the rooms he is in and send those in the classroom home? How the hell is any of this going to be man...

COVID-19

I’m not understanding the relevance of all cause deaths as it relates to Covid deaths. If you normally have 40k deaths per month then have 60k, 50k, 40k, 30k, 30k and so on, you could make the assumption that possibly something accelerated the people's deaths that were more than likely to die in th...

COVID-19

I don't get it, cases would have been higher where? The NE? Is the contention that what's going on now in FL, CA, AZ and TX is not an uncontained spread in those states? That what's happening now is not a demonstrable change from what they experienced in the Spring? That it's "stupid" to imply that...

COVID-19

"The administration is forcing schools to open" Everything must stay political. Are we just glossing over the fact that national testing is 5x what it was and positive result rate has halved? The "herd immunity" claim is a stupid one unless you only use raw case numbers to formulate your opinions. ...

So, I keep seeing this position: Libs keep pushing BLM but what are they doing about inner city violence. You know what I don’t see? Any ideas put forward to do that. BLM protestors may be chanting defund the police, but at least they’re putting ideas out there on how to reappropriate funding to bet...

There are sprays on the market, but I've always gone with the beetle bag. The bad is when they fill the bag they wreak to high heaven, and that the bait can actually attract them from quite a distance. The good is they basically all go in the bag and meet their demise. I had a swarm, no joke, a week...

Man, I can't believe a temporary move to online only should necessitate being removed from the country when they'd still be eligible to be here in the spring if in person classes restart.

Not to derail this, but I'm going to, in the 4 major sports, what other team names could be considered offensive and pushed to change? Redskins are the obvious. If you had to grade 1-4: 1: Very offensive, change 2: Border line should be reviewed 3: Meh, probably not 4: Don't be a snowflake NFL Reds...

Every time you hear “the Left” say Conservatives suck because nothing happened after watching Sandy Hook, remember the lack of effort focused on this violence too as innocent kids get killed on their sidewalks and beds. We talk about ancillary things that’ll help the culture in the next ten years, b...

Motorsports (non-NASCAR)

Ouch. Congrats on surviving Thompson, looking forward to the video.
Also, you could see that one coming with Lewis and Alex. Alex squeezes him there on the opening lap, and you had to figure Lewis would try to return the favor.
Difference is Alex had position to do it on lap 1 and Lewis didn’t.
