I decided to come back to the thread and offer a good read by a friend of mine. Stephen Fenech has Backpacked in 193 Countries Around the world And written 2 great books about his adventures. He is also an award winning filmmaker and photographer. Here is a picture of him at my house just before the virus hit. Please look him up! He is a very interesting person. I included a passage that mentions the notorious animal markets.

Cottagers flocking North here . I have noticed but don't care. These people paid for their properties and have every right to occupy their cottage. Northern people are chastising people who live south...on radio now a year round northern person vs a rich Toronto cottage owner. Close to yelling at each other.

These things freak me out

#13324 2 years ago

Just got back from Walmart. The vast majority 90% of people were not wearing masks And Practically no one wore gloves.
Most of the employees no mask or gloves. I happened to walk past the shipping area and inside no masks or social distancing whatsoever. I guess most people just don’t care and pretend too by standing 4 to 6 ft in line With no mask.
I was surprised to see the lackadaisical approach most people had. This is not going to work. I’m not going back to Walmart any time soon.

So I say hello blah blah. .cleaning away when a huge spider found its way to hang from my hand and I screamed like a combination of Ned Flanders and Debbie Reynolds. She really laughed her ass off at me and said I thought you were going to fall in the water.

#14865 2 years ago

Drove to the city of Toronto today, not downtown but 1 in 30 wearing a mask. I felt at least 10% smarter. Would my ratio be more like 70% because I wore my mask and gloves? Therefore is that not really bad news for all of us?
Why is not clicking in to people ??? The virus is still being studied.

#14867 2 years ago

Having traveled around the Midwest the last few weeks, the only place where I saw a majority of people wearing masks is my area, N Illinois. Everywhere else I’d estimate there was 10-20% of people wearing masks. With some areas that literally nobody was wearing one.

Same here ...not at all confident the west can get past our selfishness and ignorance

#15128 2 years ago
Quoted from dirkdiggler:I usually drive once a month to Alberta and stock up on cheap liquor. Of course brand of beer affects price. Bud, molson, Coors is all $40+ for a 24. I buy brewhouse for around $26/24 or sometimes PC brand is as cheap as $9.99 a case of 12. And it tastes good. Pilsner is always $29.99/24 or cheaper

Time we home brewed Dirk. Let’s do it! Surely enough info from fellow pinside

#15130 2 years ago

Another article on those unfortunate to have long term effects. Fun thing is they tend to be mostly healthy, relatively young (early to mid 40s) and women.
Kind of the opposite of the death statistics of tending to be pre-existing condition, relatively old, and men.

Quoted from Atari_Daze:

ACTUALLY, if you consider significant digits and rounding, 2.3 + 2.3 = 4.6 which rounds to 5.
Had a SPC prof who would not give me the A based on my average of 89.4.
Damn number guys!

Isn't 2 plus 2 22?

Quoted from RTR:

Nice - we still have 'both sides' arguments being made.
If anything - the article didn't place enough blame on the current administration that is currently in charge of pandemic response. If you think, "hey, we did a great/good/ok/acceptable job" - then perhaps a bias has clouded comprehension of the situation?
If I perform poorly on an important task - I don't look around and find other poor performers to commiserate with, compare myself to and make excuses or blame the task. I look around to see if anyone did better and if that is the case, then the task was not the problem - it was definitely me.
How did professional grievance, blame placing, projection, responsibility dodging, and pouty disgruntlement come into such fashion lately?

Well said RTR

Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

The good news: COVID death rates are dropping across all age groups.
The bad news: The researchers think it’s a combination of improved treatments, masking, social distancing reducing initial viral load and younger age patients in general due to older folks staying home.
So, no change in policy on the horizon based on this study.

Doc, Can long term effects be permanent? If so,
That's really bad news considering it's possible to be re infected again and again ?

Is it just me, or does that guy in the last image look like he is emptying a VERY full tank? That or having a VERY good time?

That's Jeffrey Toobin on a zoom call

Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

Antibodies that are not your own don’t last long and don’t confer any immunity over time. You have to make your own antibody producing cells for that.

Hi Doctor , sorry to slide off topic a bit but what is the significance of the new membrane discovered in our brains ?

Not sure this is new, I think Cypress Hill talked about this in 1993.
