    We've had two high football head coaches in the area get covid AND the flu. I had no idea the flu was already that prevalent. One has been hospitalized

    According to the IHME model things are about to get much worse. Although I'm not sure I agree with their predictions because they're suddenly really high after being really low early on

    Do they think it’ll go up due to some easing in addition to flu season coming around? Or more one over the other?

    I didn't really read through their explanations to be honest. Think it had to do with schools and colleges opening along with colder weather forcing people indoors

    Schools just opened up and flu season is upon us, everyone knows the numbers are about to go up for the next few months.

    The virus has diminishing effects as long as re-infection cannot occur. That being said there a lot of isolation fatigue so I think that plus winter will create havoc.

    Youngest tested positive today. I feel certain now we got it from him going to school. The days he said he didn't feel well were before I started having symptoms. His resource class all got sent home to quarantine because two brothers tested positive before we had symptoms. My other son tested negative.

    Do you feel any better today? It's scary to hear people talk about how they feel better one day, the next day they feel awful, and then feel better again after that.

    I do feel better today. I slept for almost 9 hours last night so that helped a lot. It really is up and down for sure.

    My kid that has it felt bad for a few days and then was wide open all weekend. He is feeling pretty crappy today. He was born with pneumonia and was on a vent for a month so he usually gets more sick than my other kids.

    The claim is human traffickers have an easier time kidnapping and transporting victims because they can conceal their identity and evade amber alerts. I have yet to see any reported cases of this happening.

    They’re also running really hard with the sexual assault angle, which seems really insensitive to victims who actually had their mouths covered.

    My sister in law is fairly involved in the hiring at her company. They request access to every interviewee's social media. Some of the shit she tells me about is pretty hilarious. The Covid-19 outbreak has really made for some good stories...and according to her, made it easier to identify the morons to reject.

    Me either, although I hardly post anything. Now if they asked for access to my TMB posting....

    The type of work they do is pretty sensitive though, so I can understand. I think half of it is just seeing how they react to the request.

    Yeah, I started noticing these posts making the rounds on social media a couple of months ago. Idiotic for many reasons, but every amber alert I've received describes vehicle type and color and the victim and perp by hair/ eye color and physical build. So masks aren't super useful

    Doesn't matter to the right. Trump has literally made it cool to be stupid and ignorant. What was Woodward going to do? Even if they leaked the tapes the GOP would get behind him and say he's doing everything he can to fix the issue - which they did anyways. Trump has downplayed this shit while simultaneously taken credit for solving this crisis. There is no losing scenario for him. They're going to play dumb and act like Trump was just casually joking or something. It doesn't change anything. People were still going to die because this administration is run by scumbags and retards will follow them into their graves.

    If you let it get into your head that it's affecting your breathing, it definitely makes it worse. When you're going about your day and are sufficiently distracted, you stop noticing it.

    So my wife donated blood and her antibodies test came back positive. None of us in the household have had any symptoms or anything, so there is a chance it is a false positive. I'm donating next week so we'll see if it is the same for me.
