  1. Not really why I'm drinking. Aren't most beers around 5% ABV? Wine 10%?
  2. Spot on https://mobile.twitter.com/atrupar/status/1264940139542970368
  3. Counterpoint: People not taking it seriously are going to make things worse for all of us. This is a new reality, we have to adapt to it to be able to successfully move about. If everyone was careful we could knock this thing down to a manageable size. It seems likely we are going to see an uptick soon because people want to pretend it's over. My point is we have to reopen society, but we don't have to crowd together without any consideration for the reality that this thing is still spreading and there is no cure or vaccine likely for months at best.
  4. It's risky behavior at best.
  5. I will add this, it's not just this one place. This attitude is likely prevalent in the area and you're going to have a ripe situation for something like this: https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2020/05/10/853468647/south-korea-records-spike-in-new-coronavirus-cases-after-nightclub-outbreak Do you have elderly relatives? Do you visit them? Are their interactions only with "at risk" people? Perhaps their caregiver is enjoying their weekend? Add: Or maybe their caregivers kid. I don't know how this is going to turn out, but it seems to me we could try to be careful for a while to see if it goes away. Acting on our desires may or may not cost people lives, but my guess is it will.
  6. You left out how many people the 100 will infect. Or what age they will be. And if they aren't wearing a mask there (or even being there), I'm thinking they aren't wearing a mask anywhere. Those people don't believe they are going to get sick. To be fair, 5 asymptomatic cases might be high, but the idea that some idiot who has a cold is going to miss out on drinking and chasing the opposite sex on one of the three big summer holiday weekends is optimistic. I used to live in KC. Lake of the Ozarks is going to pull a lot of people from KC and St Louis. There's a very low incidence in the local area but I suspect that will change after this weekend.

    The ObamaGate Thread

    I have a lot to say but i have to go protest for my right to not wear a mask in stores. More later.
  8. Yep, just checked his profile. He's been right wing for a long time but it looks like he's all in on the right wing lunacy money machine now.

    The Forthcoming Recession is Here. Enjoy!

    When people realize that this has changed consumer spending looong term watch out. Add: https://mobile.twitter.com/JasonOverstreet/status/1263453317650251776
  10. When's that bestseller by Bolton coming out?
  11. "End of public disagreements" looks like a suicide pact to me. The criticism they levied on the Ds for investigating Trump is small potatoes compared to doing this crap while people are losing their jobs and dying. The stupid thing is if Trump actually had it in him to exhibit empathy and non-partisan leadership he would most likely get a bump out of this mess.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Since early in his presidency when his supporters wanted to make a bet about him beating the Russia rap and winning in 2020 I had a condition where if he didn't show up to the inauguration I win, if he does and leaves it's a draw, if he does and stays they win. Point is I think it would be extremely tough for Trump to show up for a Biden Inauguration even. I think the odds are line 80/20 against. How can he come to any official event after that? I don't see him living to 90. Add: Though he would certainly show up for a Trump Jr inauguration, how's that for a dystopian nightmare?

    Presidential Election:11/3/20 - Jabba vs HQ Queen

    If Trump loses he's going to be in serious legal jeopardy. I'm not sure we do the pardon thing this time. I really don't see him being either physically or mentally fit enough to run in 2024 either. If he loses he is likely to have a breakdown. Hell, he seems pretty close right now.
  14. Not sure if this belongs here or buffoonery thread, definitely the merger of politics and pandemic. https://mobile.twitter.com/ResisterSis20/status/1261643347514589185
  15. Yeah, that's what I was thinking combined with the guy's over confident language. Hope we're wrong.

    I think there was a surge in spending at the beginning of this with people stocking up on certain things. Paper products and cleaning supplies certainly, probably electronics too. But when you look at the breakdown form today you see that a lot of consumer spending has to do with going out and impressing people - new clothes. etc, or even shopping as entertainment. That stuff is going to have a hard time coming back.
  17. When Trump tweeted he wanted Obama to testify I was instantly all on board. He even implies the House should call him in. I'm all for Pelosi doing so. I know it won't happen, but imagine how well he would do in a hearing. Brilliant chance to trash Trump's inept campaign, transition, and corrupt administration.

    The way this conference ended I think it will be another two weeks before he tries it again.

    Driving on the highway is probably just as dangerous. Add: ehh, maybe not, but not a ton of shark deaths on the east coast.
  21. Reading comprehension is a useful skill

    Absolutely brutal:
  23. She knew who he was when she married him. :shudder:
  24. I'm not going to wish this virus on anyone, but Steve Miller comes close.
  25. This is one of the things that I will be hanging back and watching. Sad thing is stuff like this will likely just make the economic and human toll worse. What a time to be alive. Add: Surprised Hogan is onboard with this.
