  1. Glad you are on the job! That material is going to be needed in the days and weeks ahead. Good work!
  2. Y'all making that over at Valway? Rock and roll brother.
  3. True. It's a new world. I'm calling a spade a spade. There's no logical reason to compare a QB who has won an MVP, is known for 4th qtr comebacks and taken his team to the SB to a rookie who has never thrown a pass in the NFL. No one is fooled.
  4. Actually it isn't. It's a non-subtle attempt to denigrate MR. We all know it is.
  5. I let the GM worry about that crap. Nothing we can do about it one way or another.
  6. Why draft a K?
  7. Cap. Hit. /thread
  8. World Update: As of March 20, 2020, 13:41 GMTFrom 0 to 125,000 cases: 14 weeksFrom 125,000 to 250,000 cases: 9 days #CoronaVirusUpdate
  9. It's not the deaths that are the major problem per se <at the moment> ... it's the severity of the cases that require ICU treatment and/or ventilation that overload the medical systems. There is a measurable lack of hospital beds in most countries because we don't need the capacity in regular times, but when Covid sends far more people into our medical care system than we have capacity for then things get chaotic and the fatality rate increases. We are seeing that in Italy. The US has less than 3 hospital beds per 1000 citizens. Those aren't ICU beds, those are all beds. Many of those beds are already filled with non-Covid patients. The math is not in our favor, and it is simple to calculate.
  10. Dude, I'm not a scientist but I've been following this closely since January. This is a serious disease. Please don't dismiss it as the flu. Worldwide it is tracking at around 2.5% - 3.5% deadly to people who catch it on average ( the seasonal flu kills .1% - yes there is a '.' in front of the 1 ). Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions are affected more harshly. Flu takes 2-3 days to develop symptoms. Covid-19 takes 5 so it easier to spread unintentionally. Italy is tracking with 12% of their patients needing ICU beds currently.
  11. Not a vaccine. He signed off on using chloroquine and remdesvir to treat the disease. There is no proven vaccine at the moment.
  12. Swine flu didn't send 10-20% of the people it infected into the ICUs on ventilators.
  13. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/19/does-coronavirus-only-kill-the-elderly-covid-19-myths-busted Claim: ‘Face masks don’t work’ Wearing a face mask is certainly not an iron-clad guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can penetrate masks. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly fivefold protection versus no barrier alone (although others have found lower levels of effectiveness). If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have been diagnosed, wearing a mask can also protect others. So masks are crucial for health and social care workers looking after patients and are also recommended for family members who need to care for someone who is ill – ideally both the patient and carer should have a mask. However, masks will probably make little difference if you’re just walking around town or taking a bus so there is no need to bulk-buy a huge supply.
  14. Agreed on the hoarding, but this false narrative that masks don't help needs to die, and it needs to die fast.
  15. Stay strong, brother.
