Bears are masked.  I feel safe.

I keep telling them to take off the mask and it’s ok, the bear said the last human to say it’s ok was seconds before he got hit in the ass with a tranquilizer dart.  Doesn’t trust authority.

I remember the good  ole days of regional wars on this board. Those were great and inspired by the back to back Ninas of 07-08 and 08-09. Kevin called Phin, “Phinweenieintheass”. :lol: 

Lol.. did I do that? I vaguely remember that one. It sure sounds like how my mind and sense of humor works. That’s fantastic. Hope Phinny appreciates that one

All she did was stir sh!t up

There is now a thread in OT for COVID where she is posting (along with Hoosier shaking in his boots over the latest case numbers out of Bulgaria and Bahrain). Her thoughts on COVID are just about what you'd expect. LOL

He did hate us. They all did. Before the sub forums there was all sorts of posts. JI posting a thread saying “tracking latest coating to rain event.” 
Metfan posting “obs for slushy inch to rain event” Kevin posting “obs for WSW snow to mix event, weenies rise from southwest to northeast.” :lol: that was real. It was basically your post amid a funeral of threads.

When Ian and her conversate on Twitter , I happen to see some of her tweets from his democratic feed and her tweets are enough to make her family wake up one night and leave her alone asleep for a new life and high five each other for the rest of their lives

I wonder if that thread was the reason Ian and Dendy and Randy broke the forums up. It was almost like they just couldn’t handle the hurting . So break em’ up so we don’t admit SNE wins. That is not far too Off from what happened

Dr. Sallis has been very frustrated by this. He believes that many lives would have been saved throughout the pandemic, had health authorities gotten the message out that something as simple as exercising greatly reduces the risk of getting severely ill from Covid.

LOL....60% of this country is overweight and they've been asked to lose weight for as long as I can remember.  Not gonna happen.  Goobermint can't tell them what to do.

Actually Dr. Sallis' study was about physical activity level, not body weight. He controlled for all the known risk factors like overweight/obesity, heart disease, smoking, diabetes, etc. The study found that physical inactivity was the biggest modifiable risk factor for severe Covid, even greater than obesity. The study showed that physical fitness level is the most important thing. It makes sense because we know that exercise strengthens the immune system, heart and lungs.

I was in a conference call from 2-3 in a small collaboration room since we have open concept office. The email telling us to mask back up came in at 2:30. I got physically ill somewhat. 
By the time I got off my call, my histo tech had gone down to the lab and brought up a box of surgical masks. All my folks were sitting at their desks with their mask down around their chin. De ju vue from May. That’s what we did before. Pull the thing down somewhat and when we got up to move around we pulled it back up. 
There is no distancing. The conference rooms are full capacity. We can remove the masks in the lunch room when we are all eating together at the same table. But as soon as we go back to our desk or 3 of us in a conference room taking business, it’s mask up. Management is supposed to be made up of smart people, yet this is what we do?

What pisses me off even worse is Massachusetts and Cambridge isn’t under a mandate. Baker said he’s comfortable where we are with our vax rates, low hospitalizations, and low death numbers. Yet a private company is kowtowing to a CDC recommendation. 
Multinational corporations are letting the government tell them how to run their business.

The government is using private industry to enforce rules they legally/constitutionally cannot.

You see it with free speech all the time. The government can ask the largest online platforms to silence anyone who speaks out of turn against the narrative. It's literally happening all the time now. 

Now they are doing it with physical access to major businesses.

A couple years ago, this would have scared the crap out of Americans. The issue of equal access and protection under the law was settled decades ago during the civil rights movement. But now we are moving backwards on it and no one seems to care because COVID is super scary.

Easier said than done. They pay my salary so it’s either suck it up or quit. All the local pharma put mandates back on. Merck and Astra Zeneca put there’s back on yesterday. Bristol Myers Squib and Pfizer put it back on last Thursday. I was just waiting for ours. I figured it would be yesterday honestly. 

Pfizer, lol. Of all companies to put an office mask mandate back on vaxed people. The irony.

I love the fresh smell of virtue signaling and pointless hygiene theater in the morning.

Yea, that’s the worst part.

I have been warning people about the government outsourcing certain functions and responsibility to private industry so they can get around legal restrictions, but people call that a "conspiracy theory" too.
