  3. Ah, shit. LOL. My fault. I got you and DosXX confused. You have the same positions. DosXX, my apologies. Negatory, I meant to insult you with that post. 😆 And I agree. These issues are somewhat important to me, but not enough to make permanent online enemies. I don’t want to go any further down that path. We’re only disagreeing on one or two issues. We’re not solving anything here. I’m going to try and keep that in perspective.

    Mick Schumacher in at HAAS. Hope they can give him an awesome car. Magnussen leaving F1 for IMSA. https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.breaking-mick-schumacher-to-race-for-haas-in-2021-as-famous-surname-returns.66XTVfSt80GrZe91lvWVwJ.html
  5. I hate to follow up my own post, but I had to stop this halfway through just to share it here. This is amazing. This vid has officially become my position. LOL
  6. Not only do you create fake statistics, you create fake awards too! Well done. Way to be consistent!
  7. You want a math problem? 😆 What is 300,000 COVID deaths minus 200,000 COVID deaths? Think you can wrap your head around that one, Capt Calculator?
  8. How are you making these assumptions about what the risks are? The effectiveness? The only pieces of information you could possibly use to derive that conclusion are pharmaceutical company press releases. Remember this?
  9. Great. I think your number is perfectly acceptable. Even though we've demonstrated we can wipe out flu deaths, you're willing to return that number to the historical norm to live a normal life. Me? I don't have a line. If I were to select an arbitrary number of deaths as being acceptable, you could easily argue "why not 1 less?" or "why not 1 more?". Which is what I'm doing with Prozac. I know it's an unwinnable debate. I just want to see if he'll throw a number out there. Sorry, Prozac. What I would say is there is a minimum level of freedom I will accept. I'm more than happy to mak
  10. Ok, I misunderstood the extent of preventative measures you are in favor of. No lockdowns, but no schools, restaurants, or concerts, either. Fair? Apologies if I am again misunderstanding, but I think you're saying even after a vaccine arrives, you still believe there should still be severe restrictions. If we continue to have severe restrictions after the vaccine, is it really reasonable to say the economy will get back on its feet?
  11. You sorta didn't answer the question. I don't want to put words in your mouth, but 200,000 is about where you draw the line. Less=unfortunate, but life goes on. More=Lock it down. Good news. You're correct. 65,000 doesn't have to be as high. The COVID response effectively eliminated flu deaths. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–2020_United_States_flu_season So now let's say you get the vaccine and COVID is a non-issue. Are you cool going back to business as usual and accepting tens of thousands of flu deaths as a cost of living? If not, which precautionary measures would you ma
  12. Did you happen to look up the results for the states you listed? It seems like you're suggesting 10% is a "tight" race.
  13. Did you take these same precautionary measures 1 year ago? If not, what was your personal magic number threshold? 65,000? https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm
  14. Weird. I haven't been to a concert, but I've literally done all of those other things multiple times. I suppose the virus hasn't decided to lock the doors and turn off the lights where I live.
