Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

I think Covid will become a fact of life like the flu or a cold. The one hope will be that when it does circulate again it won't overwhelm heath systems. The fact that people get sick and some die will be tolerated, like yearly flu deaths, as long as it doesn't overwhelm us again. Its the surge that...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

So my understanding is that UFA KHL players cannot be signed until April 30th and after. Does Tryamkin fall under this rule? Reason I ask is because there seems to be a few Russians getting signed by NHL teams before April 30th. There was a report when the KHL cancelled their season that players we...

Re: NHL Season suspended - Now what?

My question is this. Expiring contracts expire the end of June 30th. If your playoffs go past that date what do you do with those players. The NHLPA won't let them play past June 30th without a new contract in place. How can they sign a new contract with a team other than their existing club and the...

Mutation just means it adapts to survive and thrive.
Nope.

A mutation is an accidental random change in the genetic code.

The vast majority of those kinds of changes tend to make an already deadly virus... less deadly.
Oh fuck off

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

What drove the panic was the fear of overwhelming the healthcare sector. We are seeing reduced mortality rates exactly because we put into place stay at home and social distancing and closed everything down. Had we not done those things I think we would have seen uncontrollable spread, a collapsed h...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Was there not a dispute as to how he got injured? Didn't the Jets claim he passed his exit physical and he injured himself in the off season and he was claiming it was hockey related? If I remember correctly, and I often don't, the dispute began as to how he was injured and they refused to pay him s...

He has his ring, he has his money. Whatever else is going on in his life overrules any desire to be a pro athlete. All the power to him, walking away when he wants.

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

NY State added to their death count presumptive deaths which the CDC still won't count so there are two death numbers in the US. Meanwhile Trump is accusing NY State of intentionally inflating their numbers with bogus death reports. Calling it shameful and political.
