re: The season is in trouble guys - SloaneRanger
[quote].25% of nyc residents have died already so unless you think 100% of the city has had the disease and no more deaths are coming you need to go back to the drawing board on the math [/quote] Wasn't talking about NYC, Chief. Was talking about overall. Of course the rate in NYC is higher. W...

re: The season is in trouble guys - SloaneRanger
[quote]We had a real chance to beat this - like almost every other country in the world - and fricked it up royally [/quote] Oh, we're going to beat it to the same extent as most everyone else. By the Fall, deaths will probably be way, way down. But people are so squeamish at this point that...

re: The season is in trouble guys - SloaneRanger
Would rather just cancel outright than play in the Spring. Seriously, what will be different in February? So many issues with that. Am reaching the point where I don't care about these sports. Happy to end it all on the Tigers' championship....

re: Shooting at Riverchase Galleria - Child and 3 others shot -confirmed - SloaneRanger
Might as well implode that mall. With all the crime that has happened there recently, it doesn't have a chance. Too bad, because it was pretty nice back in the day. Unfortunately, there is a certain element of society that prevents the rest of us from having nice things....

re: US Media: Little evidence that protests spread coronavirus in U.S. - SloaneRanger
And it is not just the mass protests themselves. It is the traveling in groups, pre and post protest socializing, pot smoking, fricking, etc. You get the picture. The protests were the classic super spreader events. The attempts by the media to downplay this are comical....

re: Can someone explain why they would do this? Should Alabama just cancel school? - SloaneRanger
[quote]At this point, studies are showing immunity may be short term (just a few weeks after infection). [/quote] Well if this is true we are pretty much fricked, right? What does it say about the effectiveness of a vaccine?...

re: So no deaths from any players yet... - SloaneRanger
I would think that the number of player infections will be about the same whether there is football or not. Cancel the season if you want, but they will still get infected. Someone explain to me again how cancelling the season is supposed to protect the players?...

re: What's going on with Louisiana's "contact tracing"? - SloaneRanger
[quote]Korea did it with cell phone data which is quicker, cheaper and far more cost-effective than the US variant and doesn't depend on the veracity of individuals giving the data. [/quote] Has been tried here too, but the technology was a total fail. Was a big article in the WSJ a week or so ...

re: What's going on with Louisiana's "contact tracing"? - SloaneRanger
I don't know enough about South Korea to speak to that, but it has been a universal fail here in the US. Not surprising given how this thing spreads. And when you hear that contact tracers are being instructed not to ask about participation in protests, you just have to shake your head and laugh....

re: 2,089 new virus cases today in LA - SloaneRanger
Sorry, but it is time to quit with the panic and hysteria and get back to life, jobs, school, etc. This will be with us for a while and there is nothing we can do to change it. Hopefully it will run its course and burn out before a vaccine comes out, but if not we'll just have to live with it until...

Correct. Sweden is counting honestly. Many of its neighbors are not. Look at Sweden's mortality for the first 5 months of 2020 compared to prior years. No difference....

Talking about the US, Chief. We're not an island nation with the ability to easy restrict immigration. The ability to control this in the US was lost in December before anyone even knew it was here....

[quote]What's going on with Louisiana's "contact tracing"?[/quote] For a while, this was supposed to be the silver bullet to solve the pandemic. It was never realistic and is not working anywhere. It is a well established strategy that works for things like AIDS and STDs. Not so much for a vir...
