Good, lets get this over with. I'm guessing the average weight of the patients to be ~450 lbs.
be a good boy for big pharma and do everything possible to prevent herd immunity
Masks work at preventing the unfettered spread of airborne pathogens through respiration, coughing, and speaking. That's why those of us who work in Science-based medicine wear them in places like operating rooms in order to protect our patients. The same principles apply to protecting others in public spaces when we can't maintain enough distance and air circulation to mitigate airborne pathogens.
Wear masks. They work to protect other people - and if those other people wear them, then you are protected, too.
That dood is hella mentholated
Usually by this time I'm already thinking and planning for next winter (as if I ever stop), but this year it feels so far away and unreal to even think it'll ever really come.
That why bike season is so important now.
Can someone from Seattle explain what is going on there? I can’t believe anything from our piece of shit president.

don't know why any reasonable human being would take a grain of Drumpf's updates for anything going on right now as fact.
Or any news outlets. I was hoping for some EL eye witness accounts.
Watching snowboarders that I don't think are particularly good, do things that I can't do really bums me out. For example, TJ from SnowboardProCamp/Board Archive, can do a handful of rail tricks that I can't, and on features that I no long want to hit.
note: I don't mean to talk shit about the guy- he's a fine rider. I guess I just don't think he has any style and looks kinda whack when he does most things. Personal preference/opinion.
all vloggers/YTers suck in their own way.
@velvethammer I haven't been to the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone", also known as CHAZ, but it's only about a mile away from my work and I have several friends who have been to the protests in that area over the last couple of weeks, including the big one this afternoon.
From what I understand, shit got chaotic and violent, mostly due to strong-arm tactics by the police, up through the beginning of this week. At one point on Saturday evening, a random guy charged the protesters with his car, shot one protester who dove through the car's open window to stop him, and he he then turned himself over at the police barricade without incident. After that, the police seemingly used the presence of the gun (in the hands of somebody ATTACKING the protesters) as an excuse to teargas/flash bang/pepper spray the crowd. City council leaders, who were in the front lines of the protests last Saturday and Sunday nights, were teargassed and maced. They shared photos and videos and a belief that theses actions by the police were not justified. The next day (on Monday evening) one city council leader fronted a march on the the Eastern Precinct police headquarters and then City Hall. There was some minor vandalism, but things were mostly peaceful and consisted of speeches. Local political pressure on the mayor and police chief spiked, and the police decided to abandon the East Precinct building and vacate the area, leading to the autonomous zone. Since then, it has mostly been peaceful and the police have agreed to let the autonomous zone stand.
