    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    I can't believe those guys are still relevant. I listened to them when probably 20 years ago. Then one day their schtick just lost it's appeal for me.

    Camping & The Great Outdoors

    Yeah, we found a small park—old property that used to have a quarry, but there's a beautiful stream that winds through it. It's close and the kids just love it. It's an easy hike, you could do the loops and take about 2 hours. Nature is just great to get back to.

    Camping & The Great Outdoors

    Sweet. About 2 hours north are a bunch of state parks in Central PA. Bald Eagle state park has some nice trails. There's a fly-fishing-only stream near Penn State's campus called Fisherman's Paradise. About an hour NW of Rocky Gap is Somerset, PA. There's a bunch of great, little state parks there. About 3 hours north is the Allegheny National Forest. I'm pitching these because there'll prob be less mosquitoes and cooler temps than what you're used to even in VA. Also, 3 hours north of Rocky Gap is Cherry Springs State Park—it's the darkest place in PA, so it's great for viewing stars.
  4. Yeah, I've rethought going for a run in my neighborhood. All the people I've met seem decent enough, but you never know what BS they harbor. We do live in a Trump county
  5. As a PoC, I think the time has come for me to wear a body cam full time.

    The Parenting Thread II - Advice, Tips, Etc

    Agreed. And even if you don't do the coding yourself, you need to have an idea if it's being done efficiently or correctly.
  7. Yeah, that's how it is. Well, countries with good medical care systems have got the death rate around or under 1% I believe your number is slightly backward. 20% of infected would need hospitalization, 5% would need to be in the ICU. It's all for show. Everyone around him has to wear a mask off camera. HIs staff gets tested daily. If he thought this thing is ain't no thang, that **** wouldn't happen.

    When Are (Real) Sports Coming Back?

    slapping video... I think there's some questionable shots. Getting the ear vs the cheek makes a huge difference. Using the palm vs the butt of the hand is a big deal too. I dunno.

    The Quarantine Thread

    30 Rock has held up. Community, for me, has not. If you like 30 Rock checkout Unbreakable Kimmy Shmidt—Another Tina Fey co-creation. "Da Fuan" is a lead in this one. It's pretty funny.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    Now we know why GRRM hasn't finished the books. Too busy writing the screenplay for 2020.

    DIY Home Improvement Thread..

    Laid down 600 sq. ft of landscaping rock this afternoon in under 4 hours including cleanup. Lucked into an impromptu crew of 3 college-aged neighbors who were willing to work. Compensated them well and they thought they were just volunteering. Loved how they did a great job.

    The "Re-Opening" the Economy Thread

    I don't know how to personally feel about this stage. So in Western PA we only got mildly hit, unlike the eastern part of the state. So we've managed to avoid the crush of cases (not to say we couldn't get hit). The area is good about masks and social distancing. We're in the yellow phase-so gatherings of up to 25 people are allowed, etc. I, myself, don't crave to be back out. I'm happy working from home. But my wife and kids need the social contact. The isolation was meant to flatten the curve. We weren't waiting it out until a cure is available. We were buying time. Locally, as long as we keep masking up and distancing I think we will limit the spike and can handle it medically.
