its not conspiracy, its ineptitude, complacency, scientific illiteracy and an insane level of greed. thats what results in a shit show this big.

yes MSM is owned by unimaginably rich corporations who use their power to skew things how they want.

yes big pharma etc

but its not conspiratorial, at least not in any sense beyond the desire to keep the hegemony going

I'm hoping for a giant shake up like Peter Zeihan and Scott Galloway predict.

but i doubt it.

PS wearing masks is stupid and if you're wearing one I'm confident you can't think critically.

Ignorance is bliss.  

Bliss sounds real nice.

and i didnt really come to this thread for that...

 

has anyone read the snowboarders journal?  is it any good?   magazines in general seem outdated but i do like the surfers journal.  that said, most of the articles i enjoy from there are about something historical or tangential to surfing and i'm not sure what those would be for snowboarding.

It seems the existing resorts may be busier due to closure of others and also, sporadic snowfall.

The places I go, that I have to travel many hours to go to use to have a lot less traffic, but are a lot busier now because of the erratic snowfall and warm melting spells at the more local hills.

less participants overall. But more people trying to get fewer resources?

i guess you get get lower demand and even lower supply and see crowding.

feels like a resort is proposed (and then fails to materialize) around here every few years.

It's stupid if you think you're protecting your own ass with it. Here no one wears one. If everyone wore one, something that's good enough to block the shit coming out of your mouth, it'd make sense.

Kind of... I've never really checked it out, just because I get the mags and always have, but there is some online content that is not in the mag the subscribers only can get to, like a paywall, and I've check some of that out, vids and stuff.

thats literally what 99% of people think.

people who at risk (and we know who they are) should wear the type of mask that protects them, when the need applies. The people who come in contact with those at risk should also take certain precautions.

making stupid, nonsensical recommendations that affect entire populations with no valid reason is stupid.

jesus fuck you're the worst thing about this forum

 

Literally, if I ever decide to say fuck it and pull the plug it's because I'm tired of reading your words.

Mask supposedly reduces the amount of virus you shed in to the air. Thus, if you are infected but have no symptoms and are unaware, you protect those around you. 

It's interesting though how Western governments and media have gone from 'masks don't work, don't wear them', to 'wear masks, if you don't you're being inconsiderate towards the health of others' in about 8 weeks.

Worth picking this one up: https://whitelines.com/uncategorized/whitelines-snowboarding-magazine-issue-121.html

While there is 2020 gear and not 2021, solid articles and interviews.
