  1. @Zasada Couldn't find it with the search function, but managed to scroll back through posts and locate it - it's a Ragnar Race, Gettysburg to Washington. It seemed like the general consensus was to wait for 2022. I just checked the website, and they do have a countdown clock for 2021 although I wonder if it will actually go off this year- there are a lot of different jurisdictions to get approval from, and the areas it goes through tend to be on the stricter side compared to most of the country. If I have it up to date, the interest list is below: Probables (6) : gian
  2. He did manage to both draw a yellow and get smashed in the face with the ball in those 5 minutes, though!
  3. Yeah you nailed it, but they had a stop sign rather than a light as the street they were turning from has like 8 houses on it. If it was springtime and I had advanced warning of their approach, I probably would have either hopped onto the sidewalk and turned down their street or looked behind me and if traffic was clear I would have swung to running with traffic. As it was I didn't notice them until they were almost on me, but I'm not sure if it was because they were completely obscured by the snow bank or if I was partially zoned out. I generally try to run in such a way that even if
  4. For any armchair epidemiologists out there, the New Yorker has a really nice article on trying to figure out pandemic differences between countries.
  5. A hopefully unneeded PSA to stay vigilant out there. I had a bit of a close call on my run today. I was in the street running against traffic and as I started to pass a cross street from a cul de sac on the left there was a vehicle heading towards me. Maybe he was just braking late, but it seemed to me that he did not see me coming (we have a crazy amount of snow on the ground right now, so 3-4 foot piles at intersections are common) and was planning on rolling through. It was too late to make a left and tuck in beside him, so my only option was to swerve right and speed up to try to clear
  6. Pulisic on the bench in Champions League today. Hopefully he can make an impact as a sub.
  7. For those viewing the warnings as a trivial thing unworthy of being bothered by, unless you just put a warning before every piece of media I would suggest there is an inherent editorial judgement in what gets given a warning. For example, if a hypothetical retrograde media outlet put a miscegenation warning for any show that depicted different races living together, would that not bother you?
  8. Thanks, I had forgotten about that aspect. The two actions weren't that far apart in time, either.
  9. While I do have a scraper that was handed down by my wife's grandfather, I must admit that I own only two, fairly basic snow shovels that we bought when we moved into our house decades ago. I've been meaning to add because sometimes the kids will help and also the one shovel is a wussy girlie man shovel that just doesn't hold much snow. Good for not throwing out your back, but takes too many scoops to clear an area for my liking. My favorite technique with the larger shovel is to just barrel across my driveway like a human snowplow, then when I get to the side scoop the giant pile onto the
  10. Definitely a correlation. There are a couple of properties that I know to avoid as if they are cleared at all they will be cleared in lazy slipshod fashion. There's been a bit of a wrinkle the last year or two as township code enforcement started going around and trying to fine the violators a few times, so overall behavior's been better since then. Not sure what's up with this latest snowfall, as a decent amount of houses that are normally on the ball have uncleared sidewalks.
  11. Yep. I'd like to get in about 10 tomorrow, but I just got back from running over lunch and it was pretty crappy. I had three options: Run in the middle of the road where there is the most traction, but piles of slush that instantly soak your feet Run along the road shoulder where there is a small coating, and have your foot slip with each pushoff due to the liquid underneath Run on the sidewalks, which have ~1" if they were cleared this morning, but a sizable minority of homeowners didn't clear them at all, and it's surprisingly hard to tell in advance if the next property
  12. Agreed. I mean, is he saying that since they didn't openly defy his order that they are culpable? It doesn't make any sense.
  13. What I definitely remember him doing, and just found with a quick google search, is that he denied that he made the nursing homes take Covid positive patients, suggesting that they took them of their own accord.
  14. You're right, and other states (PA and NJ, e.g.) did the same thing. I do think it's worth noting that there was heavy pushback at the time from the nursing homes that this policy was going to result in preventable deaths of nursing home residents. Cuomo basically told them to pound sand. Which, there are ways to defend the decision given what was known at the time. But, if you're Cuomo and you make the decision over those voiced objections, you don't get to turn around and try to fudge reality at a later date (and I know you're not defending his action there). I think "murder" is maybe a
  15. Metric vs. Imperial Ratings F >> C, C is too coarse and is stupid miles > km, miles roughly equaling minutes for long car trips gives it a slight edge cm/mm > in, sorry Imperial, but nobody wants to measure things in 1/16's lbs > kg, close but kg is again too coarse g > oz, g is more useful and doesn't have a stupid conversion to its larger unit fl oz > mL/L, I mean what is a mL? you're either stuck with too fine or too coarse. dL would maybe work if people would use it. lbf > N, nobody wants to deal with the Newton, so you end up us
