    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I wasn't suggesting a national program. State by state works for me. Does every state use the same DMV and voter registration software? Seems like a private company could have developed the program and sold it to individual states.
  2. Good start for teams from a football state.

    That would be the easiest. But a private company, university, etc developing an app that any state or local government could buy would also work.

    Note to our government. Next pandemic have an app for that. One sign up, and then notify people when and where to go. Or just have a nurse ride with an Amazon driver, they eventually go to every house except Balta's but he's a smart man and will find a vaccine somewhere. We had a year. Three drunk college students could have written the code in a month.

    Three weeks ago I was in mine with several hundred people, today I walked right up, no waiting. I'm not certain if that means YEAH! we've been very efficient and have vaccinated a lot of people OR BOO, too many people are not getting vaccinated.

    @Balta1701 this just highlights our differences. If five things are going great and one is still shit, you'll focus on that one and say nothing matters until everything is great. I'll see those five, be optimistic, and say we can beat that last one. I'm winning until defeated, you're defeated until you win. As long as we win, it's all good. The end result is what matters.

    Your choice. I see a light at the end of the tunnel. We have a President that takes this seriously. We have a vaccine that is getting into people. Our medical facilities aren't being overrun. No shortages of critical supplies. I'm optimistic.

I still see a lot of mask wearing and hand sanitizing. Hopefully the trend continues as we get people back working. Good feeling.

    My wife receives Pfizer part two today, I get it tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll not have too bad of reactions.

    2021 Catch-All

    -https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/17/us/marilyn-hartman-arrested-ohare-airport-trnd/index.html The last line made me laugh Reporters who have followed her arrests said the success of her evasive maneuvers depends on her ability to blend into a crowd as a seemingly harmless, elderly white woman.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Hospitals are able to schedule all surgeries. No hospital bed shortages. Plenty of hand sanitizer, toilet paper, alcohol wipes, beef, chicken, etc in the stores. I think we're closer to the "I stopped throwing up a couple hours ago and realize I'm hungry but I probably shouldn't eat that cold pizza" stage. We obviously have a ways to go, and could have handled this much better, but man a year ago it looked very bleak.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    When was the last time we worried about a respirator shortage? What areas are running out of hospital beds? Remember flattening the curve? We're in much better shape than a year ago. That seemed so long ago and it was less than a year.

    Probably more accurate to say Alt R or far right in this context. Although they over lap with Trump supporters.

    Coop on 670 The Score at 5:00 PM CT

    The idea is the swing coaches are teaching distance over accuracy. I spend five days a week on ranges and that's what the students will pay for. It's rare that someone calls a pro and asks for a lesson on hitting wedges closer (they do want to put some pro sauce on it even if the ball lands short of the hole). It's "how can I hit my drives twenty yards longer?" The progression today is teaching from tee to green. Teach the player to hit it long then figure out where it's going. A big difference from my days as a young player when you learned the game from the green back to the tee. Eventually the better players learn you don't hit a driver on 14 holes. But you don't need one when you hit a hybrid 250.

    We probably have different understandings of grip it and rip it. But for most of the past two decades distance has been taught far more than accuracy. 320 in the rough is preferred to 295 in the fairway with plenty of stats to back it up. Mark Brodie did some great work for his book Every Shot Counts.

    Thankfully those were all 70 mph fastballs, so not too bad?

    I had to do that for my ex wife. She'd have spun in her grave if she knew I received the overpayment. Lol

I'm assuming this is another in a series of PR opportunities for the team and Tony. I'm guessing it will be at a fever pitch by the time players report.

    I didn’t feel a thing with the vaccine, I joked that they scammed me and just said I was vaccinated. Friday I had a nuclear stress test and sweet mother of God that damn needle on the top of my hand was huge and it hurt like hell when they slammed that stuff in.

    Market/Financial Thread

    They are sticks and bricks with Home Depot, Macy’s, Dollar General, Auto Zone, etc. long on Amazon, Grub Hub, Etsy, Chewy, etc. I took a deeper look and they seem to have gotten out of the GME saga by January. I haven’t been watching too closely. CLIX if you are interested. They also offer an all on line fund and a all against traditional retail fund. It fits in my high risk high rewards niche.

  24. I directly responded to someone else. But it again highlights how a post can be read and reacted to by many different people. Once something is posted the op loses all control.
  25. Why did you think my post had anything to do with you?
