What are your expectations?

Just curious. In this totally unscientific effort, I'm curious to see your expectations for the U.S.A's return to a semblance of normality. You know, you can head out to the mall, take in a movie, pick which restaurant you want to head to tonight, live sports are back on TV (or you scored tickets to...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

.... I'm by no means an expert on interpreting these charts, and my guess is that their surpassing the U.S. could be a function of the number of cases..... But, in retrospect, it really shouldn't be a factor. If a hailstorm hits a couple of adjoining apple orchards and destroys 300 of the 1000 tree...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

Sorry to return to my favorite chart (linear as opposed to the logarithmic chart) from a few posts above, but after a few days, we see Italy is now flattening their curve enough to surpass the doubling every three days milestone, somewhat paralleling China (and hopefully soon flattening out like Chi...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

The chart that I'm preferring to look at is the the middle (weforum) chart. Looking at either the logarithmic or linear chart, we, like many other countries, are doubling cases somewhere around every 2.4 days, very similar to the path that Italy took. Italy looks like they are now approaching the do...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

The fact that our world is so hyper-politicized has made this entire situation completely disgusting. Mis-information from BOTH sides designed to paint left or right as incompetent. Instead of people just issuing the fucking facts we have to cipher through bullshit. Drain the whole fucking swamp. T...

Re: Makar in NHL

Back in the lineup last night. Three assists in the 3-2 OT win. Pretty significant return.

I learned today that hockey assists are also known as apples.

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

I have long felt that the national elections should be a two-day affair with a uniform starting and ending time (say 8 am East on Monday to 8 pm East on Tuesday). Very few people would be eliminated because of work/weather/kids. And more importantly, we don't have the early returns coming in from th...

Re: Makar in NHL

More discussion on RoY. https://www.nhl.com/news/quinn-hughes-cale-makar-top-calder-trophy-picks/c-315932384 Hughes is making a strong case for himself and can gain more ground with Makar currently missing at least three games with another upper body injury. I like the NHL injury reports lack of det...

Re: Makar in NHL

Got one assist last night to end his (first) three-game pointless streak. 43 points in 50 games ain't too shabby. For a rookie. For a defenseman. https://www.nhl.com/player/cale-makar-8480069?stats=career-r-nhl&season=null And a discussion on the top rookies: https://thehockeynews.com/news/artic...
