You should never ride a motorcycle again if you understand probability.

BTW, what is the grandma count from Sturgis as of today? Up to about 5000 deaths and 10 billion in healthcare costs right? Or do we need to wait 2 more weeks?

Sounds like you're mad?

lol


Edit: I understand probability, it's why I also wear gear when I ride a motorcycle - being safe or practicing "the illusion of safety" is another discussion and not 100% relevant. But, to your example: I wear a mask like I wear gear for a motorcycle, the only difference is, my mask is protecting YOU. If we both wear them, we're all safer.

Do you have a dirty unwashed asshole? I apologize if I made you defensive with my post.

It would be safer for both of us if you rode a bicycle instead so that way the crash would be less violent when you hit me in a crosswalk, and also your exhaust emissions will not pollute my air and create climate change killing us all.

Your stake-raising examples demonstrating probability are muddling the point and are what the "just-a-flu"ers cling to for supporting their justifications for not observing smart pandemic PPE procedures.

Wear a mask. Argue numbers all you like, cry chicken little all you want, laugh at the libs who cower in fear - but wear a mask. You're on the wrong side of science, and likely the wrong side of history.

Also, I stand by my post, people are dirty motherfuckers.

He put a response to this in the Georgia thread (for reasons he notes) if you're interested.

North and South Dakota continue to be the nations leaders in New Cases (519 and 459 per million 7 day average). The next highest is Wisconson at 359.

But, nah, probably not related...

The one that really puzzles me is Colorado which was supposed to have been one of the major sources of attendees.

From the start, they've never really had a high peak either in the spring or in the summer.

Why read if you don’t care??

I am still interested because of the scale of the event and obvious fuck it attitude.

So far the fuck it’s have shown it is not as big of a deal as expected. And... if more protocols (mask /distancing) were followed probably would not have been a big deal.

That bodes well IMO.
