Luckily I don't need to hire Amazon delivery boys so I don't need to worry about what they think. :) 

I took that job to get into shape for a few months, because I had another job lined up delayed due to covid. Could have stayed home and collected unemployment and didn't. 

 

Nice personal insult though man. 

We should have a discussion about this outside the next g2g. You should come

Wasn't their state travel restrictions early on? 

We don't have domestic vaccine manufacturing so we had a slower start, but just over 30% have a first dose now. It's much better than many other countries, but not as good as the US, the UK, or Israel. The daily rates lately are similar to the US. 

I never suggested that what Atlantic Canada did could work there. 

I just think it’s kind of unfair to compare the two places. There is a ton of people packed into a very small area in mass, especially eastern ma. I’m not defending mass and their approach, just saying it’s difficult to compare to very different places

Read the conversation, this whole thing started because people started dunking on Nova Scotia and Canada in general. It's amazing that people who lived in Massachusetts would have the gall to do that.

That was my point about more population inside 128. No comparison. And 60 plus % of deaths in Mass were in LTC facilities, just like most states in the US.

That was a low blow by Phin. Everyone’s gotta work. Amazon drivers make decent $$

I dont actually believe it's a population issue for this purpose. We're geographically isolated and implemented travel restrictions. Newfoundland literally had no community spread for months. Massachusetts has always had an endemic level of disease since like Feb 2020.

first fever in 12 years, lol. it took a little over 24 hours 

Second shot? 20-24 hours is about right. It’ll go away pretty fast. How high is it?

You can take Motrin for the fever and aches if you have them. If it gets worse, you can switch between Tylenol and Motrin every 3 hours.

The countries with very few COVID deaths tend to also be the countries no one cares about... they can lock down tight and the world doesn’t even notice. 

Traveling abroad you get a very different vibe than people are jealous/care about us... people seem to watch the U.S. because it's so entertaining, in a controlled dumpster fire type of way.  But they like the quiet countries.

It's funny, they assume we are all pompous assholes. Hard to see where they get that opinion from though.

Girl that delivered a package at my house before Christmas said she was getting $30 per hour, not bad for driving around dropping off packages.

The girl that drove our route last summer was front lawn camp out worthy just to wait on her. Guys up and down the street ran out to get the packages when she stopped. :D
