  1. What makes things so bad is that Covid patients, for the most part, are in the hospital for awhile. Especially, the ones that have been intubated. We’re talking 14+ days. So, it’s creating a terrible cycle where more Covid patients are coming in, declining, intubated on the floor, and we’re having to create room in the hospital. Or worse, waiting for someone to die to get an ICU bed.
  2. I never understood the logic for anti-vaxxers to pick this up as the next medicine to be the magic bullet. Ivermectin isn’t FDA approved for treatment of COVID-19 and it’s mainly used for animals to treat heart worms. People were buying literal barrels of the stuff from Tractor Supply and other feed stores. The vaccine is free. I just can’t anymore with these people.
  3. Same. I have quite a few co-workers that share that same sentiment. They won’t get the vaccine, because they feel the antibodies they’ve acquired are strong enough to defend them from getting Covid again. Basically, acting like the ones that keep saying God gave them an immune system and it’s strong enough to defend any disease. Winners, I tell ya.
  4. Pretty much. I’ve heard everything from God gave us an immune system to Ivermectin being a miracle cure. The last one really bothers me, because it is being pushed really hard by this clinic in Carrollton as a prophylaxis treatment to prevent COVID-19, yet it is also not approved by the FDA as a treatment for COVID-19. In fact, they’re going to have a COVID-19 Health Fair next month to push Ivermectin and other treatments they deem are helpful.
  5. It’s a hot topic at my hospital about a possible mandate. I’m all for it. Anything to help protect patients and co-workers, I’m for. However, we do have a lot of people, nurses included, that are losing their collective minds over it saying they’ll quit if they’re forced to get the shot.
  6. Weezer will always have a special place in my heart thanks to their first two albums. I have to listen to the Blue Album like I have to watch the original Star Wars trilogy every once in awhile. Probably one of the most fun bands I’ve seen play live.
  7. I’m all for a Bill Walsh College Football remaster.
  8. Gus is getting paid $21.45 million to go F off.
  9. Soda and ice cream are the two things I can’t give up. Alcohol was very easy for me since I was just a social drinker, but if I order a pizza or get a burger, I have to have a Coke.
  10. Much better effort in the second half. Despite the ineptitude in the first half, they still had a shot to steal the game.
  11. My FB feed is full of people claiming unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud. I mean, really?
  12. Agreed. They do a phenomenal job. Toughest job in the hospital.
  13. Nursing is probably one of the most difficult jobs out there. Not many jobs can compete with nursing as far as the mental and physical toll it puts on the human body.
  14. I want Joe Brady as HC. Give him a veteran coaching staff around him and I think he’ll be great. The Panthers offense will improve as the season goes on and I think the Falcons should snag him before he becomes too hot of a candidate.
  15. Honestly, it’s more fun on the outside of Wrigley and Fenway than inside to watch a game at both ballparks. Fenway still has wooden seats in some sections, which is a literal pain in the butt to sit in for over 3 hours.
  16. Wow, this is something that MacGruber would do by packing loaded C4 in a van with his own team. Oh wait, he did do that.
  17. That’s how I feel as well. The rush to end it was unnecessary to me since HBO seemed like they were comfortable keeping the checks blank to keep it going. If seasons 7 and 8 had 10 episodes a piece, maybe there would have been a better payoff.
  18. “Man, I’ve had a rough day and I hate the f****** Eagles, man.” But on a serious note, I as well dislike them with a passion
  19. Other than Pantera, At the Drive-In, and ZZ Top, there aren’t a lot of Texas bands that I would be considered a fan of. California definitely has the market cornered on rock bands.
  20. Yeah, it was pretty bad. I live in the area as well and before this I thought the dumbest thing to happen today was that a massive traffic jam was caused because Pilgrim’s Pride was having a sale on bulk chicken.
  21. I think the Cochran hire is a home run hire just for the sheer fact that he’s in the program. There’ll be a little bit of a learning curve sure, but now he can go on the road and recruit which is another nuclear bomb in the arsenal since he’s great at making relationships with his players. I’m loving this off-season.
  22. That’s what I was thinking as well. Thanks for the confirmation.
