Beautiful gold, so-so silver, & shameful bronze

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

I've personally always found it weird the criticism that Silver got for 2016, particular when he gave Trump nearly a one in three shot of winning. Compare that to other models, that had Trump at...

Re: 2020 NBA Playoffs Thread -- The Coronavirus Bubble Edition

I pretty much agree with Red Dog. Police brutality and disparate treatment toward minorities is a significant issue. It does need to be addressed. Boycotting/Postponing/Cancelling games can help...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Maybe this is just a semantics issue, but "partial herd immunity" does not seem to be a thing. Herd immunity is one of those either/or situations, either it exists or it does not. Much like the...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I'm not even sure what you are arguing here. Fauci was asked a medical question. He gave a medical answer. That covering mucosal surfaces is better than not covering them. As eyes are a mucosal...

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

Don't know most state's laws offhand, but don't most just require a ballot be postmarked by election day? Not received by the state? Also not clear what is meant by "round trip", unless you're...

Re: political campaigns using music w/out permission

I think the short answer here is that is is complicated. Why hire a lawyer and fight over what is really something of a novel issue when you can publicly shame them? The type of licenses that ASCAP...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

​​​​​
I don't really see any "extremist" laws being passed. But masks DO help solve medical issues. It helps explain why all people wear them in an operating room. For medical reasons.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I don't believe that's true. There's no data to say how effective masks are. But there is data to say they have an effect. It might be minor (again we don't know). But it does help

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

It's a fair point. But it seems this is the byproduct of situations like what happened in Orange County. People complain enough and/or make enough death threats and you get no masks. So then the...

I'm not even sure what you are arguing for here. People who are eating literally cannot wear masks (or at least one without a hole in it, which then really isn't a mask anymore). People who...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I hate to respond to this obvious attempt to get a rise out of others, but this response didn't even relate to the original post. Which was about determining how long it takes to get an accurate read...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Just to add to the confusion here. The basic legal definition of assault is the threat of harm. Battery is physical contact. You can have one without the other, though it's not common. But one...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

In retrospect, it may prove true that there were better ways to handle the virus. The Swedish model has gone reasonably well, though I would point out two things about it:

(1) it does require some...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

It seems inevitable that most States will pass some sort of legislation. But its also important to know that places aren't strictly liable for this kind of stuff. You still need to prove negligence...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I agree with you. It seems weird that most states locked down in March/April and by May they all opened back up to some degree. But little really changed. So the same threats are still there. You...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Sounds like a good problem to have. Though if somehow that did happen, one should certainly try and figure out why. As it would go against what the experts expect and basic common wisdom. But if the...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

In the broadest sense, everyone has biases. So nothing's perfect. But I don't think anyone would advocate to trust no one. That's too extreme. And you likewise shouldn't trust everyone either. In the...

re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I can't say I understand it at all. Around here, it's often one of the first things people make a run on when there is a predicted storm. That and milk. Not that storms around here are usually bad. I...

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

I believe it was actually closer to 1 in 3, as Trump got up to almost 30 percent likelihood by the end. So yeah, not really the same.

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

So basically Sanders won his home state (Vermont) and all the states that vote by mail (Utah, Colorado, and a decent chunk of California). So people who voted 1-2 weeks ago preferred Sanders. Biden...

Did that Washington Post thing and ended up with:

Biden 14
Bloomberg 14
Buttigieg 14
Klobuchar 13
Steyer 12
Warren 8
Gabbard 8
Sanders 3

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

Not sure if that's true and I have no hard evidence to back it up, but it does kind of seem that way. On the spectrum of most liberal to most conservative states, places like Maryland, Massachusetts,...
