The COEXIST with a swastika is a plot twist that I didn't see coming at all.

Normally yes, but on that car, where I'm pretty sure the owner is disappointed Man in the High Castle isn't reality, seems right.

Definitely notice they have added more to the car since, but totally the same car

OKC was 2.5 tons compared to 2750 tons.

Yeah just read that (finally have a little time to catch up). Makes sense on the literal several orders of magnitude difference

It is easily the largest non-atomic explosion I've ever seen on film. Just insane.

I agree it has to be something like ammonia nitrate or the like, I would imagine munitions would more explode in waves, not all at once. Like OKC was just a ryder truck of that crap, that is like silos of it.

Is it dumb to suggest getting rid of the debates? Sure, but like, I am not scared, not should anyone, the "debates" are not going to change people's minds at this point, unless it's utterly catastrophic for either candidate, which is equally permissible IMO, so WGAF. We live in a world that is unquestionably worse off that 4 years ago, that's all you gotta say.

It's amazing how little they believe in personal accountability.

I think the more accurate statement is they believe everyone else has personal responsibility, until they are required to do it themselves.

What was KSU-W's prediction again? 40k? I mean his modified prediction, of course. I believe his initial prediction was around 10k.

That was def his first prediction, it was stupid as hell. I do think he revised to to 40 or 50k.

I will say barring anything spectacular one way or another, I think by the end of 2020, we'll probably be pretty close to 300k (and at least past 250k), and by full calendar year (March 2021) I think we'll be probably around 400k. Now that we have entered the nearly 1000/day average pretty regularly we'll unfortunately probably hang around that value for several weeks.
“Assuming nothing crazy happens,” I think 300k by year end would be highly unlikely.   100k more by March seems even more unlikely.

Schools? People now being cooped up inside? It seems more likely to me, and this thing has powered through summer pretty well and is still slowly building.
Yeah I want to walk that back.  When I wrote that I was miscalculating how many days were left in the year. :blindfold:

300k by year's end is certainly possible.  I'd bet against it, but i'm chronically and incorrectly optimistic about this.

Hey, I don't want it to happen either, but yeah, I can understand that it seems damn near impossible that this year still has over 150 days/5 months to more to go. Feels like the end of the year should happen like two months from now, but it was like when we crossed the "100 days to election!" a few days ago and I'm like, "100 days? holy crap this is still forever away"

That's just where my calcs (guess) came from, I will admit I think 300k is probably on the high end, but like, not that high.

Herman Cain and one of the Turning Point USA guy dying of this is more like the ultimate tragedy. So unwilling to do anything but make this a political thing and grift beyond grift and then to ultimately succumbing to it. It's like thinking you're Hercules but you're really Sisyphus and instead of the rock just rolling back down the hill it rolled over you. It's the ultimate willful stupidity perpetrated by those who absolutely knew better.

That doesn't mean I'm sad about it, nor do I think people who laugh about it are really that bad, but I ain't going to laugh at it, and Cain & TPUSA guy got the ultimate and IMO a proper comeuppance, and I'm sure the devil is enjoying two new souls to his realm (if you believe in such a thing). Their actions may not have directly lead to someone dying (and hard to prove) but they definitely added and emphasized an atmosphere of callous disregard to the severity of this, and that most assuredly lead to more death and suffering.



I am a bastard, what can I say

We go over 155K today.

The Sept Death Poll is going to be a challenge to get right.

And it has happened

Wow, that wall pic is just pathetic

I'm in favor of opening schools with optional virtual but this is also a good take


It was the same when the KS Supreme Court met to decide about churches back in April. It was like, "if you have to do it this way, the answer should be obvious" which thankfully the court unanimously agreed.

Thank breaks down for me:

Language: 24
Education: 25 (I'm sure it'll be, how else would I have gotten 2 visas this far using engineering, which makes it super easy)
Work Experience: 11
Age: 12

That's 72 before even the job offer part. I'm sure I could get that arranged if need be.

I’m at 67 right now before the 5 bonus points I think I’d get for adaptability, but I lose a point every birthday. I think I’m going to apply ASAP. You can get streamlined if a province wants you, and maybe they would if I promised to work remotely there where americans are paying me but I’d be spending my money there. :dunno:

I know a crown corp in Saskatchewan that would make it be a slam dunk. I just don't want to live there. But yeah, might as well go for it. Vancouver would be a pretty easy jump

drove by a Kobach sign that said

"Vote Kobach"
"Build the Wall!"

Lol it's true, all the ones I saw down I70 have em.

Yeah I think the general populace would be well served to acknowledge that this is a tough problem with significant drawbacks associated with every available solution.  I don't feel too strongly about it one way or the other, and I get annoyed by those who think any solution is obviously the correct one.

100%. I am just tired of the one side who wants to keep kids at home generally not realizing that is not a viable solution to most people, and it also is generally from people who value education, but obv aren't thinking about how most people in this country actually work and live. And that teachers are being put in this horrible spot and they are some singular victim of this, as if grocery store clerks, food workers, sanitation, etc hasn't already been dealing with that sort of crap since day 1. Heck my office has been pushing for us to go back (and we have been back). No one is acting like we're some sacrificial lamb unto the alter of society (more like we can still do this from home, why are we going back? oh because you want to, I see).

On the flip side, it's rich seeing those who would rather Besty DeVoss this crap and act like they are doing a solid for students and "caring" about education, without recognizing/caring about the real dangers and concerns of faculty, staff, and well, it's not just kids who get sick too, they will carry it to others at home and to said faculty and staff. But those the breaks in this crazy fight. I feel for the parents first, kids next, then teachers, then everyone else involved in this.

I've been trying to sort that balance in my head (without a clear conclusion), is what we are asking for teachers to do higher risk than waiters, bartenders, other essential workers. I think it probably is, but I'm sure there are some areas that are worse (meatpacking or some other manufacturing that can't distance and involves a lot of people indoors).

I guess the difference is teachers have to be accredited and have more leverage as employees (not like it's job that can easily attract new employees quickly).

For sure, I'm usually always about balance, but i just have a hard time in my head finding that without significantly changing school or how we approach things like childcare, which I don't think will get resolved in a month.

FTR, I also don't overly "blame" the schools per se on not having a good approach to this, because there are a) a ton of considerations that have to be done and take time to iron out and b) you're basing those considerations of a whole slew of different scenarios based on potentially how bad this is/not is, and all of those are subject to national, state, local, regulations potentially and how the parents and teachers feel. I do think they should be able to figure out something though.
