  1. We know three of them are healthy. Odds are the rest are too, especially considering that they ALL are in the lowest risk group, even more so than most of us reading this board. That’s my opinion and what I’m hoping for. This is good news. Now let’s play ball. Rick
  2. I sat beside Dr. Bill Mercer and across the aisle from coach Gales and his wife on that flight to Salt Lake.for the game. One of the best times I’ve ever had as a Mean Green student & fan. Coach Gales was a sweet man. He represented our program with class and was always willing to answer any question. He and his brother dedicated their lives leading young men towards success. He will be missed. Prayers for his family. Rick
  3. But they (protestors) are not the reason behind the need for the military/national guard to be requested. Yeah,...explain that to this woman.
  4. By how much? We don’t know. But here’s a visual: After some grinding and sanding on my car, notice the dust particles (around 5 micrometers) on the inside of this N-95? 1 Micron = 1,000 Nanometers. Covid-19 = 120 Nanometers. My face inside the mask was probably just as dirty as the outside of the mask but at least it stoped SOME of the dust from being breathed in. Either way it’s not worth walking around in one thinking it’ll stop something a thousand times smaller,..especially if your outside in the heat and wind and not in a high risk group for Covid 19. Rick
  5. Hard to have an honest discussion with people who Are going to compare this.... to this..... Rick
  6. There’s not much else you can say when so many allow the dishonest news to frame the narratives instead of thinking for themselves.
  7. More great insight from the EXPERTS. https://www.theweek.com/speedreads-amp/917924/dr-fauci-feels-cautiously-optimistic-amid-search-coronavirus-vaccine So IF....there’s ever a vaccine created it may not even protect you for 6 months? Given this, if true, along with the fact that a third of the population refuses to get inoculated just points to the foolishness of worrying about it anymore. Rick
  8. Remember when this guy was a household name in college? https://utahstateaggies.com/news/2020/4/23/Jordan_Love_NFL.aspx Rick

  10. I’m thinking the so called Experts could use more common sense. Like the Experts who scared the hell out of everyone with the 2 1/2 million predicted dead and got nearly every prediction wrong since then? Experts that said “there’s no clear evidence of human to human transmission of Covid-19”? Experts who told us we needed to shut schools down despite the near zero risk to kids? Experts that screamed we don’t have enough ppe & ventilators...never mind, we’re good? Experts that said the antibodies don’t protect against reinfection, then said they do? Experts that said you can’t be in groups larger than 4, 6, 8 or 10. Can’t skateboard, can’t ride a bike, can’t jog, cant buy paint, can’t be in the ocean or on a lake, pray in your car in a parking lot with 20 other cars or be on dry sand. But you can be in the wet sand and purchase bread and boards inside enclosures with a 1,000 other people buying bread and boards and state with a straight face that these decisions were all based on science by the Experts? Experts that can’t seem to define what social distancing is,...is it 6 feet, 18 feet, the next zip code? Experts that ignored over a 100 years of experience that the sun & fresh air helps defend against viruses. Experts that claimed surgical masks and eye protection are mandatory, then just surgical masks, then N95 masks, then homemade masks, then bandannas? Experts that said the goal was to flatten the curve, then changed it to till there’s a vaccine? Experts that said masks work then said masks don’t work? Experts that said we need to stay locked down till there’s a vaccine, then said no we can’t wait till there’s a vaccine? Experts that predicted every state and local entity that didn’t shut down early, or opened too soon was absolutely inviting waves of death,..Liberty for not shutting down, Florida Spring Breakers, Georgia, South Dakota,....run-for-the-hills type of contagion death was headed their way,...didn’t happen. Experts that said the virus can be picked up from inanimate objects, hey guess what, now it can’t? Experts that forced the sick into nursing homes, now admit that was a tragically stupid thing to do? Experts that said the drug HCQ works,...then no it doesn’t and also....it’s dangerous and can lead to death just as long as you can ignore the fact that we are still suggesting it to be taken for those traveling abroad and that it’s even safe for young children and pregnant & nursing mothers? Or the Expert who said “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust”? I mean...are you kidding me? The Experts have been so all over the place on this thing,.....back & forth, back & forth like Borg vs McEnroe so bad it’s given us whiplash. After everything we’ve seen and heard that’s been wrong or inaccurate why would anyone take what the Experts say at full value without a skeptical eye? . Rick
  11. Good find @Harry I gotta admit it’s hard to hate La Tech sometimes. Rick
  12. I think it’s hilarious how you can’t argue without the virtue moralizing and name calling. You’ve been doing it since you first showed up with anyone you disagree with. Why your allowed to get away with it here is beyond me, ....but sticks & stones. And facilities is what this thread is about....as in outdoor football stadiums in the freaking wind & heat...., not in laboratory settings with intentionally created results. So in looking at your non-outdoor football stadium settings of FACTS.....I’ll pick just one. Let me pick.......this one. ”Airborne or Droplet Precautions for Health Workers Treating Coronavirus Disease 2019 ”Given the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral loads in both the lower and upper respiratory tract as well as the persistence of the virus in the air 3 hours after aerosolization in laboratory settings, airborne transmission is possible......” ..”there is no agreement on the definition of “droplet” route of transmission.”.... Conclusions This review reveals the limited scientific data to inform spatial separation guidelines and a growing body of evidence that droplet precautions are not appropriate for SARS-CoV-2. Hence, future work on carefully documenting and studying the mechanisms shaping transmission distances are warranted, particularly with experiments over a large number of subjects and a variety of conditions, to update current spatial separation guidelines and the current paradigm of droplet and airborne respiratory transmission routes”..... More possibilities, more guesstimates, more suggestions and guidelines for us to maybe follow, or maybe research more of.........especially if we football fans in a stadium are now to behave like health workers treating sick people indoors? RICK
  13. That’ll work too. Just before they signed off they said possibly Saturday but that the best weather outlook for launch would be Sunday. So that’s why I said maybe Sunday. Rick
  14. We couldn’t have been more proud of you. You had the Okie fans in the stands shitting their britches for 59:53. Rick
  15. “Experts believe,” “Covid-19 spreads mainly” ”Within about 6 feet” These are all guidelines, not proof.. And despite all the guidelines for 3 plus months the spread continued, not showing to slow down until warmer weather and herd immunity set in. Rick
  16. I would, but I‘d hope that my prediction was more accurate and not based on best guesses. Rick
  17. The original guy’s ....”Average pneumonia deaths in Florida from 2013-2018 for the same time period are 918”.... is wildly inaccurate considering Florida averages around 275 Pneumonia deaths per week during flu season. If you look four flu seasons back and compare the averages they should have around 5,000 Pneumonia deaths by now? The further this goes the more I’m convinced we’ll never know the correct numbers simply because Cause Of Death can be so tricky to decide. Rick
  18. “Danish PM 'falsely claimed health agencies backed lockdown” https://www.thelocal.dk/20200522/danish-pm-falsely-claimed-health-agencies-backed-lockdown/amp “Norway 'could have controlled infection without lockdown': health chief” https://www.thelocal.no/20200522/norway-could-have-controlled-infection-without-lockdown-health-chief/amp?__twitter_impression=true
