re: Pick 1 stock for 2021 - S1C EM
BlackBerry interests me. Tell me more about their foray into being a software company. I want to believe, but the analyst ratings are 10% buy, 80% hold, and 10% sell. Talk me into it....

re: If masks are the difference in possibly contracting COVID and possibly infecting others... - S1C EM
[quote]That's essentially what you're arguing.[/quote] Not at all. I'm pointing out the absurdity of complaining about one, single risk mitigation measure. [quote]You want to "mitigate risk" for something that poses very little risk.[/quote] This is entirely relative. YOUR experience is n...

[quote]My dad died of heart failure during routine surgery at age 59. Did you have a point?[/quote] Sure. One person is on a vent because of choices. The other was more than likely related to either genetics or diet (also choices). I mean, let's all stop cooking our food, too....

[quote]I've already had it. I prefer to not live my life in fear. We take risks every time we leave our houses, every single day.[/quote] That's great. Tell it to my former mechanic laying unconscious on a vent right now for day 14 (he's 57, btw). I'm glad you enjoy Russian roulette. Don't wea...

[quote]Again, so fricking what? The virus doesn't do dick to 99% of the people out there, aside from some sniffles.[/quote] Good luck with that thinking. My friends will tell you it's not worth the risk. They thought like you previously. They regret it now....

re: If masks are the difference in possibly contracting COVID and possibly infecting others... - S1C EM
[quote]In that last 3 months I've spent significant time in Lafayette, BR, and NOLA....pretty much all over South LA. There is at least 80% mask wearing when I go into stores, restaurants, and other businesses...so yes they are. [/quote] Again, you've already said most of them probably aren't ha...

re: If masks are the difference in possibly contracting COVID and possibly infecting others... - S1C EM
[quote]Your issue is that you focus solely on risk, and not the severity of that risk. Yes, I'm more at risk where I spend time in a single spot. So fricking what?[/quote] I am absolutely focusing on EXACTLY the severity of risk. Your risk of contracting COVID while making a quick in-and-ou...

[quote]Now if doing it wrong is enough of a hinderance then calling for the mask wearing is doing even more than not helping...it is hurting.[/quote] Was going to add, but hit "submit" too soon. You might be right on this. We really have no way of knowing. All I can be responsible for is me an...

re: If masks are the difference in possibly contracting COVID and possibly infecting others... - S1C EM
[quote]No it's not.....but to expect 330 million people in the USA to do that....yea good luck.[/quote] My friend, I DON'T expect that. I'm simply explaining to you the myth of "masks do nothing". They are at least somewhat effective, but they are far less effective because of how people who sa...

[quote]IF 80%+ of people in Louisiana are wearing masks[/quote] They aren't. And for those that are, at least 50% wear or handle them incorrectly. We've already established that based on your own response. [quote]AND More people are getting COVID now than anytime during the Pandemic[/quote] ...

re: If masks are the difference in possibly contracting COVID and possibly infecting others... - S1C EM
[quote]So now we are going to expect people to handle their masks similar to how scientists in a BSL-4 lab would?[/quote] Is it so hard to walk to your car, sanitize your hands, remove it by the EAR LOOPS, and hang it on the coat hook in your car? It's really not. I do it all the time. Yes...

[quote]Bull shite....you'll never be able to show me any empirical data that shows that you are more likely to get COVID from a family gathering that from going to a non-family gathering at WalMart.[/quote] You want to know how everyone with half a brain knows you're retarded?

[quote]o where did the person that brought COVID to the party get it from?[/quote] Most of the idiots who will do the above have been doing it in numerous other places. My best friend and about eight others in his family contracted it from a Christmas gathering. His parents, who attended, took ...

[quote]Look at the number of mask being worn statewide in LA....it's a pretty high percentage overall....yet we are still contracting COVID at an incredibly high rate....It seems pretty simple to me that masks simply don't make much of a difference one way or the other.[/quote] Okay, now do how m...
