  1. Wow, that is not short. It basically lambastes everyone. Conservative, liberal, organizations, nothing is really spared. A little heavy handed a maybe some cherry picking here and there, but doesn't seem too biased one way or another. To be fair I did skim in parts. Thanks for the read.
  2. There is a point on the curve where loosening up restrictions results in outbreaks that overwhelm hospitals just like we are trying to avoid. The risk is another lockdown where we have to start from scratch. In any case, my point before was there is benefit from delaying us catching this illness. A month ago if you were in critical conditon with it, you were put on a ventilator and more than likely you were going to die. Now they prone you and turn you over and give you oxygen, and your chances of survival appear to be much better. Nearly everyone with knowledge of how this stuff works is saying opening now is too early. I hope for everyone's sake they are just being overcautious.
  3. It's not just about preventing the overwhelming of hospitals. It's also about giving us time to study the virus and develop better treatment plans, giving us higher % chance of survival.
  4. From what I understand, our testing equipment can do something like 75-100 tests per day as they do one at a time. South Korea and other countries have a machine that can process 10,000 tests per day, and in fact they have offered the US use of that testing equipment. The FDA shot it down and decided to go with their own. It didn't work out well, so now the guidance is to to test only health workers and patients who are admitted. These reported cases are definitely not the true infection rate. Keep in mind this info is from my brother who is working as an ER doc, and who likely already had the virus and got over it but they won't test him at this point so he isn't sure. He is on the front lines, but isn't necessarily in a position where he has all the details. Fun fact - the hospital where he works had a shipment of PPE stolen off their dock, so they are getting 1 mask per week and essentially no other protective gear. He says intubating patients with nothing but a regular mask is horribly risky for a doctor, but the CDC is telling them to just do it. One doctor already quit because of it. The sad thing is, the hospital he works at in Foxboro, MA is just starting to ramp up with COVID-19 cases. I can't imagine what it'll be like when it really gets going.
  5. Plus, it's kind of wrong. Last real action movie with a female lead I saw was Atomic Blonde, and I thought it was pretty good. Made 100 mil at the box office, not huge but not embarrassing either.
  6. I don't understand how this movie is supposed to be losing $100 million. How on earth do you figure that? Only looking at the domestic gross?
  7. I laughed at the guy that picked the Patriot's D in the 8th round in a 10 team league.
  8. Now imagine someone said that to you about the Yankees in 2003.
  9. They knocked it out of the park with this Joker/Sesame street parody. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqpak5lFxvs
  10. PC police? I don't get it. I don't think you said anything different than I did. I agree about the boy respecting the girl 100% (everything consentual). Although it didn't come across in my post, it isn't sexist if you teach your sons and daughters the same thing. Moral values are different depending on religion, culture, etc, but taught equally to boys and girls is great. This discussion I think is more toward the overbearing dad who high fives his son for bagging the cheerleader while threatening the boys to stay away from his daughter. That being said, I think telling either a teenage boy or teenage girl to keep it in their pants is an entirely pointless tradition we somehow manage to pass down from generation to generation. It works once in a great while, but hormones and the natural predisposition for teenagers to rebel are far stronger than anything we can do as parents. Our best bet is to teach them how to do it safely.
  11. I think it can be sexist but doesn't have to be. Men never (or at least very, very rarely) have to think of altering their behavior to avoid being raped. Women do, all the time. It is natural to be more protective of a child that had a higher predisposition of being assaulted. The schtick about the dad with the shotgun is sexist, though. Tell the boyfriend that anything that happens between them needs to be consentual, sure. But trying to be the gatekeeper of her sex life is super sexist.
  12. Not if he has no personality. Part of streaming is being good at the game, part is being interesting enough to want to watch.
  13. Oldest guy to qualify was 24. It's a young man's game.
