Water Parks in AZ?

What's next?

A ski resort in Kuwait?
We have a bunch of water parks, not sure I get the joke, its hot, water helps cool you, slides and pools and such are great. I know where you are trying with the joke, but it really makes allot of sense here, and the can open earlier and closer later in the seasons because of our weather.

And all of them are lame and absolutely terrible.

Great job, Gov Douchebag. Arizona did a decent job wave one, and he proceeded to say the flatten the curve stage was to prep for wave two... and then opened up Pandora’s box.

This is what barely any governor understands. A flatten curve isn't going to do anything other than prime you for a huge spike. You have to break the curve down and have a real curve not a plateau. Basically every other country understands that.

I think states that are going to try lock down again are making a big mistake and only delaying the inevitable. Only then, it's gonna be worse because it will be flu season.

Hope I'm wrong.

All of the data is showing that it's trending younger and younger and, again, this is a culture. You simply will not get the young people to comply with wearing masks in the numbers you need them to. I dunno what else to say about it, but that's just the way it is. Young people do NOT care about the elderly in this country.

So....take care of yourself however you gotta.

The longer you can push out the waves the better. Monoclonal antibodies will be tested in July. New or repurposed drugs could get results from clinical trials at anytime.

This should be a wake up call for Bar owners. If they are just going to pack their establishments and not create ways to naturally create social distancing then will just open and shut down until we have a vaccine administered to the masses.

Masks have their place but it doesn't matter if your young or old, masks wearing isn't happening at bars and restaurants. They need to space tables and stop movement/interaction between groups. Ventilation systems need to be adapted for more fresh air.

Even without the flu, the winter is going to be real hard for bars and restaurants because of how heating systems work and how buildings are designed.

Bars and restaurants might just need a bailout and just move to carry out and delivery until the end of the pandemic if solutions can't be found or agreed upon.

It's true in the reverse too. Older generations shit on millennials for years. Whenever they aired their legitimate grievances, boomers told them "suck it up you snowflakes." Now all of a sudden, those people suddenly need young people's help to combat a virus that poses essentially zero risk to them. The contempt young people have for the older generations is well-earned. Now the shoe is on the other foot and they need young people's help (after doing nothing to help them), so it should be no surprise that young people don't give a shit about them either.

None of this matters.

Protests are still on-going everywhere. No one is distancing. Just saw a massive gay pride gathering in Boston. If people can't go to the bars to gather they'll do it this way.

And it's only going to exacerbate the problem if you shut things down again. People are gonna listen less and less and less.

None of this was handled correctly from the start. We're a huge country. When NEw York City got blasted, that didn't mean Arkansas needed to shut down. Shutting places down that had little to no infections was wrong and it's backfired.

Until death numbers start climbing in some sorta drastic fashion, seeing the age go down should be considered a win towards getting through this in some type of way.

Not sure how true this is. There's a very low risk of death for sure, but we still don't know the long term effects. Rudy Gobert said he's still having trouble with his sense of smell.
My cousin (only know her through her uncle) who is in her 30s and had no known underlying conditions got it around 6 weeks ago. It hit her hard and fast with high fever, body pains and breathing issues. She was in the hospital for like a week and bed ridden for a couple more. I heard she was doing well a week or so ago. Well now I hear she is back in the hospital and not doing well. I'm not sure what the current issues are but....
