  1. Yeah, there's been a lot of stuff in here that I don't consider to be cancel culture. When people misapply "cancel culture" to an event, I think we should post their real name, home address, cell phone number, and employer in here in an effort to change their behavior and make this world a better place.
  2. It will be interesting to hear how they message the name change. If they say they are changing everything because it's racist, then it will be interesting to see how the NFL and broadcast partners deal with that in terms of showing past highlights. For example, can they say it's all racist and then still show John Riggins running for a TD in the Super Bowl and Frank Herzog's voice saying "Touchdown, Washington Redskins!"? Will they have a throwback jersey? Will the HOF do something to remove the name from their displays? My guess is they don't say it's changing because it's racist. I think they'll continue to say it was always meant to honor, but that it's just time for a change.
  3. Snyder has always figured out that money talks. The difference is that money is now starting to talk when it wasn't before.
  4. Not sure why direction matters. Closeness is the issue. I can be close or far regardless of the direction I'm going. If it's a one-way aisle, am I allowed to pass someone in the aisle in front of me? If so, I don't see why I can't pass them going the opposite direction.
  5. That's not what that graph is saying. It says 2% of all deaths are aged 35-44 (69/3778). The % of 35-44 year olds who have died is 0.2% (69/32987).
  6. Probably. But they did a review a few years ago, which I think included visiting tribes.
  7. I haven't read every post in this thread, but from what I've read, I don't see how this is your interpretation of what's being said.
  8. My experience is that more people are following local mask rules than followed social distancing rules (while in public) before mask rules. Everyone wears masks in stores where I am now. A couple months ago, social distancing in a grocery store was not fully being followed.
  9. I assume you think carve outs make sense in a world where people will perfectly follow rules but your assumption is people won't follow the rules therefore we need to a zero tolerance policy? I disagree we can't allow exceptions (I assume that's what carve outs are) in official policies/statements.
  10. I thought I heard that Hong Kong did masks without a lockdown with great success.
  11. I'm confused. How is that evidence not important to the question at hand, assuming the question at hand is: Should someone who has already had covid wear a mask?
  12. If already had it and have recovered, I'd probably still wear a mask because I think it would make others feel better. But, what's the current evidence about being able to get covid again and spreading it after already having it and recovering? Have there been cases of individuals contracting and spreading it a second time?
  13. Yes, agree. My only point was that there are places that are outdoors that masks aren't needed and that our country is large and has a variety of landscapes where a person might be outdoors. On Broadway in NYC, wear masks. Hiking in the woods by yourself, no mask needed. Somewhere in between, there's a line. I usually go on multiple 10-20 minute walks, either by myself or with the dog, each day in my suburban townhouse neighborhood. I can easily do that without coming within 50 or even 100+ feet of another person. There just aren't that many people outside at any given time. So far, I've been doing those walks without even taking a mask with me. I probably should start to at least have one with me because, yes, there are rare times that I might cross paths at a closer distance of maybe like 20 feet. In my neighborhood, I think I've only seen one older Asian woman who always has a mask on outside. There's one particular neighborhood nearby that I drive through a lot that has what I assume is a high immigrant/foreign-born population (mostly East Asian and Middle Eastern and Indian). That neighborhood has noticeably more masks outside, but still less than half of the people. Again, these are suburban neighborhoods with plenty of space and there's really no reason people can't keep their distance on these walks. As far as I can tell, my county's numbers are looking ok. Pretty much 100% compliance in indoor public spaces (grocery stores, Wal Mart, Target, etc). But, like I said, I don't see much outside. I haven't taken a stroll down any local main streets where there might be a little more pedestrian traffic. Maybe I'll do that soon or at least take a drive through one to see what I see.
  14. I'm specifically talking about outdoor areas. In NYC, outdoor areas have a lot of people in close proximity. In many areas of the country, outdoor areas don't have a lot of people in close proximity. Until this thread, I honestly haven't heard people arguing that masks should be worn at all times outside. It makes sense in NYC.
  15. NYC is a unique place in our country. I don't understand the reason for needing high compliance in outdoor areas in most of the country.
  16. Why wouldn’t it be available to everyone? Just short supply? In that case, I assume we keep masks until we have enough supply, however much “enough” is. I don’t know enough about this to know if Covid vaccine refusal should be treated like flu vaccine refusal or the vaccines that, for example, are required for kids to attend school. My guess is we’d treat it more like the flu vaccine and encourage it but not make a huge deal about and stop using masks even if we know people are refusing. Maybe local ordinances will be based on percentage of population who have been vaccined.
  17. Good question. A couple options I can think of. Until there’s a vaccine or until we’ve reached herd immunity through infection?
  18. For me, I do the same thing I do when I see people break other rules: Nothing.
  19. That seems unnecessary in such a vast country.
  20. I haven't watched YouTube TV in about 3 weeks. One kid has watched a handful of episodes of a show since then. I'll likely pause/cancel and then figure out what to do once sports are back.
  21. His analysis of wearing a mask seemed to be linked to the likelihood that it was helpful. That similar analysis doesn’t seem to be applied to buying lottery tickets.
  22. I didn't study it too much in college, but I believe this gets into Public Choice Economics. That's an area of econ that applies econ principles to the public sector/politics. It applies market economics to areas that have traditionally been thought to be outside of the market. But, it recognizes that markets are everywhere and all the same economic rules apply. Public servants are humans who respond to incentives just like humans who aren't public servants.
  23. I've always found it interesting when complaints that a company doesn't pay enough in taxes are directed at the company and not at the government. I'm sure the companies have done immoral things to help create those loopholes (or whatever causes this), but IMO more blame should be on government. It's government's job to not allow that to happen if it's bad for society.
  24. Well, obviously, a lot of people don't think it's an honest living.
