    An observation regarding mask wearing (totally a political).  I endorse the use of a mask where the elastic runs side-to-side around your head as opposed to over the ears.  I did the loop gig on a two hour plane ride in April and then tossed that option, reverting to the around the head configuration.  Much less irritation. 
    Besides, you can then lower it around your neck when not needed for a classy fashion statement.   B)

    Our school starts the week before Labor Day.  It’s primarily an orientation week, with serious class instruction starting when they go back after the holiday weekend.  This year it is a 4-day weekend because Rosh Hashanah is Tuesday the 7th.

    Just finished testing the 26" hedge trimmer I showed yesterday in the "What Are You Buying Now -Off Topic. This 80V trimmer is a beast.


    Edit- Don't know why two of the photos are .tiff files and where the second empty post came from. You say it best when you say nothing at all, I guess.

    Cringing and rejoicing at the same time. Both of my kiddos started school today. Masks on at all times. Socially distanced in the classrooms. Here we go. Hoping for a full school year!
    My oldest starts tomorrow. Masks while indoors. Did the same thing last year for the whole school district. Was not an issue.

    Ahh yes. But you aren’t in COVID hotspot Louisiana where our vaccination rate is sub 50% and there are plenty of idiots flat out refusing to get it. 4th surge underway
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 38,462
    There are a lot of sick kids in my area from covid, which is much different from the earlier waves.  We have kids on ventilators here.  And while they are still less likely to get extremely sick than adults, they can easily get infected and spread it at home where most parents in LA (for example) are unvaccinated. We've seen that in the past....all of us with kids would catch stuff they caught at school.  Given the hospitals are basically full here and there's a shortage of 6000 nurses and I don't know how many doctors in the state, your guess is as good as mine as to what will happen.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Another thing that's good about masks is that wearing one reminds you that you're in a pandemic and to be more aware or stay aware of surfaces, touching stuff and putting your fingers in your nose or whatever orifice.   With kids, they need all the help they can get.

    Just wanting to ensure I read this correctly, given it’s from the guy who seemingly has several new acquisitions on the “What are you buying now?” thread each and every day. Also the guy who owns what looks like an airplane hangar to house his many toys. 😂😋

    Local hospital stats…..

    hospital A
    112 COVID patients….some on vents. 94% unvaccinated 

    Hospital B
    146 COVID patients…..91% unvaccinated

    they’ve canceled elective procedures and those surgeries that could be pushed. My buddy is an ER doc and has one shift off in the last 20. 

    Understaffed and overwhelmed is an understatement he says

    And how many will die because their cancer screenings were delayed or their heart or cancer surgeries were delayed? You could say that refusal of vaccination is willful endangerment or possibly negligent homicide.

    My wife had a PI lie on their biosketch to skew the research data for a grant they were awarded. Luckily, IU caught it before the government entity did. My wife pulled the award and Legal is handling it now. Big no no and this person will likely be terminated.

    Speaking of that I just learned that my second youngest uncle has a large brain tumor. They are sending him by ambulance to a hospital at the state capital to see a neurosurgeon. I had to remind my mother that this was good news. If it was hopeless they would have just recommended a hospice.

    I bet we do.  I often find myself coming to understand exactly what someone did, and then asking myself “what in God’s name were they thinking?”  

    I also don’t share 95% of this stuff with the wife, because either it’s so crazy she wouldn’t believe me, or it’s impossible to explain without relaying so many details first.

    Not really, not without disclosing things that aren’t meant for public consumption.  

    I can however tell my wife anything and everything without incurring any jeopardy, but I don’t for the aforementioned reasons.  And that’s the rub.

    I am turning to you, my learned and esteemed Egg-friends to confirm my suspicion that despite being a little past my best - I still have it.  Otherwise why would this appear in my inbox?

    Am Jane and I’m 27 years, a wedded lady and I want a low-key guy for a casual hook up built on fun times with no strings attached. I’m just a displeased lady married, he should be at least thirty whether married or not, should be prepared for at home test, because I want it raw. No appreciation just enjoying satisfactory make love together, I will host.. 

    Points to clarify;
    1) I am familiar with displeased ladies - I have one who lives in my house already
    2) I assume a 'home test' is something to do with electrical safety, so no - I am not prepared but maybe some YouTube recommendations from you will help?  I hope it's not a memory test of why I just went out to the shed because all I remember is thinking 'why did I come out here?'. 
    3) By raw she obviously knows my steak preference, we call it rare but I can overlook that - initially anyway.
    4) No appreciation..... I think we all know that feeling.  Today I removed a dealer's sticker from the windscreen of SWMBO's car, including the adhesive and leaving no residue at all. Impressive right? What do I get "I didn't know there was a sticker"
    5) A little hazy on the bit between 'enjoying' and the comma. 
    6) She will host, great - I hope she has Sports subscription so I can watch the cricket

    Any advice you can offer would be gratefully accepted.
