  1. Who would want to walk into this mess at UC after the way this situation has been handled.
  2. Officials seem a little Bulldog friendly.
  3. 45-20 Baylor at the half. Houston looks like they've quit.
  4. Embry Riddle. Daytona Beach. Florida. Bikinis. Ocean. Then become flight command on @The Raven 's rocket to Mars.
  5. No need for a shot clock in this Iowa / Oregon game. Iowa is in trouble if they don't find another scoring option other then Garza.
  6. My favorite is the Newport Elks fish fry in Cold Spring, KY. They have a good filet with some of the best tartar sauce around.

    Getting some ice pellets right now in Southern Campbell County. This isn't the type of ice that will stick to anything. But the roads will definitely be in bad shape.

    How's the track of this storm playing out so far? Pretty much as you expected so far or has it shifted east or west? The last I saw it shifted west and had Indiana getting the worst of the snow.
  9. Thanks NWO for the updates. No rest for the weary! I filled up the gas and propane tanks. Got plenty of water and food. I hope everyone is prepared for this. 3/4 inch of ice accumulation is something that needs to be taken very seriously!
  10. I absolutely despise decorative pear trees. They've become invasive. Replace it with a yoshino cherry tree. Fast growing, prettier, won't stink, not invasive, better for the bee population.
  11. Trees down from some ice in the Wallace Woods area of Covington, KY. Power out in the area.
  12. My wife is a substitute and she is getting her vaccine this week.
  13. I'm feeling kind of gross saying this but.... go Browns! I'm taking a shower now.
  14. There are real scientific based studies that agree with exactly what I've posted. They're posted in the Coronavirus forum. Check them out and follow the science.
  15. Good question. I'd probably go with a figure around 25% effective for me to start wearing masks everywhere (I wear them to a number of public places already...grocery stores and basketball practices). Every mask study I've seen speaks to masks being 2-5% effective. That percentage won't put a mask on me. Everything that I've seen that says masks work have been opinion based and not based on significant scientific knowledge.
  16. The spike in numbers speak in my defense and nobody knows how effective masks are. Nobody.
  17. That's a horrible take and contrary to everything I've said since the start. I've never spoken in such a way. @Voice of Reason wouldn't agree with my takes on this, but I'm sure VOR will have my back regarding the "speaking in absolutes" comment. I will speak in an absolute and say that masks aren't effective enough for me to wear one everywhere. Success is measured in different ways. Let's say masks are 5% effective. Is that good enough for you to wear one? Because it isn't for me.
  18. I might be able to agree with mask effectiveness against the flu. The only thing I'm not buying is we have no clue if we've hit our flu season yet. Sometimes it is later (February/March). The jury is still out on effectiveness for Covid though. We’ve had masks since March. We didn't peak until late April. Then November hits and our numbers have been surging since.
  19. Ok. Let's say that masks are working for flu. It wouldn't appear that masks are working for Covid. Can we agree with that? Or is Covid spiking because we aren't wearing masks. I'm confused, because some are saying we have record low flu numbers because masks are being worn. Then we have others saying Covid is spiking because people aren't wearing masks enough. I don't see how you can have it both ways.
  20. Weak flu season... as in the flu strain is weak this year. We don't have a clue if masks are effective with the flu because we have no idea of how prevalent the flu strain is. We do know that Covid is prevalent. We know that at a minimum in public settings masks are being worn nearly religiously. Yet numbers are climbing everywhere. We can blame spread on the private setting all we want but Covid is making its way in the private setting despite distancing orders, work from home, distance learning, and masks. I don't think you can sell the effectiveness on masks based on low flu numbers while Covid runs rampant.
  21. Well for one, you can't say it's a weak flu season and say that masks work because look at the low flu numbers in the same breathe either.
  22. Then all sports athletes, pro all the way down to instructional should be wearing masks when they're playing or shutdown completely. Kansas sent a guy on the court against UK that had symptoms but I guess tested negative before the game. Still seems insensitive given what has transpired over the course of this year. Seems maybe some are taking this more seriously then others. We get to watch our celebs and athletes carry on, but I can't get my kids in a classroom while wearing a mask. It would seem some others need to feel the weight and responsibility but selfishly they get to carry on. Too many inconsistencies... it irritating to watch sports right now knowing my kids can't even get in a classroom while wearing a mask. I don't need to lecture anyone on how well my 10 and 7 year old are doing with tech based learning. We all know that tech based learning is failing across the country. As far as mask wearing in private, that will never be controlled. Never.
