The problem is most of the people that do these things are people I wouldnít want to have anything to do with 99.9% of the time. My family thankfully arenít that ridiculous outside of two or three that itís a conspiracy. Iím telling you all: get ready for the mask mandate coming soon.

Well no matter how much you want to be a controlling authoritarian dictator, you cant force someone to do something. All you can do is put out good information and make it available. It sucks that theres people too dumb to figure it out, but your gonna have that accross the board. Slowly but surely people where getting it on the jobsite i was on. When i got laid off on friday 88/1400 had got it. Which imo is pretty good. Basically once someone got it they would put people in quarantine for 14 days that where directly exposed to that person and roll on. Then once everyone is clear you would come back to work.

I do agree, but when "my freedoms" infringe on "your freedoms" or vice versa,
i think we have a problem.

its got to be an agreement, mandates put ahead of time that we say if an emergency happens, so as long as
cases x meet ratio for cases Y per population density for a given time, or until cases drop.

the idea of being so insular that you cant even look to your neighbor for ideas or to see how
better they are fairing because the neighbor has more than 2 cents. that annoys the hell out of me.

and its not just one political crowd, (though there us a concentration)
idiots across the isle that impulsively must have exceptional treatment.
rules for thee not for me.


rant over. I nerd sleep. the professors have some kind of menstruation cycle syncing but for tests.
all classes last week, full tests and quizzes, 2 labs, and a greater than normal level of homework.
the same is carrying over to this week because of thanksgiving. the weekend is almost here.

I was up til 5am completing labs, hw, and a pass/fail writing assignment that i misses a bit of the rubrick on, but still made it "work".
I started working 6pm the night earlier.
that

Worst thing is its not gonna go away until theres a vaccine. Which sucks whether thats in 10 months or 10 years. I know i wont be the first to run out in get it, until its proven safe, but hopefully we get one sooner than later.

Also GROSS, nothing is worse than getting waaayyy too much work jammed down your throat.

The big problem Covid exposed is how whiny and petty people are. In WW2 we had rationing for several years. If that happened today, the collective *****ing about how that infringes on "muh freedom" would be ridiculously loud.

During this crisis, people seem to really have trouble differentiating inconvenience and oppression. It's inconvenient to wear a mask, not oppression. Travel restrictions in states and prohibitions on large gatherings aren't oppression, they're designed to stop a catastrophic outbreak. We've just gotten to a point as a society where a majority of people can't see beyond their own pettiness to see the bigger picture and look toward the greater good.

I had to cancel my plans to visit my parents for Thanksgiving. PA enacted a travel restriction and I'd have to get a Covid test within 72 hours of going up there or quarantine for 14 days. Neither of those is desireable for what amounts to a two day stay up there. Does it suck...sure. Is it the end of the world...no. I'll see my family at Christmas or sometime next year. But I can guarantee that I'm not going to be transmitting Covid across state lines by not travelling. There are way too many Karens in this world.

While i agree for the most part, it is a restriction on your rights, however its only because of the people are too stupid to stay at home while sick, and dont give crap about anyone else. That basically falls into the rest of it though.

Thus sums it up exactly. It can be seen in how people lived before Covid, as well.


My wife says we're near a tipping point where there's not enough health care workers to handle all the people who need it....Country wide. She says recruiters are having a hard time finding people to come travel because everyone is already doing it or too burnt out to continue. Seeing how it's the Holiday season and it seems a large number of folks either don't care or somehow don't believe in covid, it means we're pretty well ****ed.

being fair the constitution says nothing about wearing a layer over your mouth during a pandemic.

The Constitution states that the federal government cannot restrict travel between states. However, state governments can.

It's not 100% effective with a surgical mask, but it's pretty good at stopping droplets. Wearing a surgical mask does very little to protect the wearer but it's probably can stop some of it from entering your nose/mouth.

If you want to protect yourself against morons, then yea wear an N95 or higher mask.

Well guys it finally happened. After six year my pod pack finally died. The Velcro for the waistband is giving out. I was running to a bunker and I guess my pack thought I was pushing to far up and decided to stay a bunker behind me.

Im still rocking my nxe camo pack, though i really hate strapless packs. That keeps me a lot on what ive got.

I have an older style NXE pack too and I’ve only owned two packs over 18 years which are the same NXE. The first one is a loaner now and the only issue is the elastic waistband is looser and one of the pull tab ends ripped off.

Our parts manager keeps marveling at my ability to keep a mask on at work. I told him this is why it doesn't bother me much... I've spent plenty of time in this crap.

I don't get easily annoyed with a mask unless it's too big for me, and starts to slide up into my eyes. I have a small head and it's an issue.

The only time my mask bothers me is if I'm somewhere that I have to wear it outside. The Florida heat and humidity make it kind of annoying, but luckily there are very few occasions where that has happened so far.

Yeah, I don't really like the strapless pack either. I kind of like the HK magnetic packs, but I'm not spending $100 on a pack.

In my experience strapless packs are great but have a limited life. The sleeves in mine eventually wouldn't hold anything but the biggest pods. So I went back to normal strapped pods. I went back to my HK strapped eject pack but when I was at the Hoth game back in February it had a blow out. Now I have a virtue one that's pretty solid.

speaking of packs, I've got a DYE vest and it uses MOLLE pack attachment. It's pretty much impossible to find them anymore. I found a box of them at d-day last year and I bought one of them, but i'm wishing I had gotten more.

Vests are seriously the best thing for any scenario game. The BT one I wear was something I won at a local game a bunch of years ago, can't imagine not having something like it for scenario/big games.
