Feels like OSU might be the only thing standing between us and a Clemson - Alabama national championship

At my school we have a 70 year old and heavy art teacher. She hasn’t missed a day of school. I consider her pretty unhealthy. We have a technology teacher who is very very obese (dangerously)....very diabetic and severe heart issues and breathing difficulties. She’s missed just one day.

School is going. We have zero current cases yet our county has turned red and everyone going apeshit. 1 case and schools canceling many sporting events and shutting down schools to clean and everything else.


School feels like school. It’s great quite honestly. IMO the best start to the year in many years. These kids DO NOT WANT VIRTUAL....they yearn for what school gives them. High school is different but the high end kids say they aren’t getting anywhere near as much virtually...they want to be there.

Same here. School district I’m in are going back hybrid this coming week (two days school, three at home). They had been all five at school. The county went from orange to red or something. According to the dashboard DeWine tweets out, there’s been 312 cases since 9/30, in a county with population of nearly 170K. Just ridiculous.

Teachers are no different then all the other professions that are going out and interacting with others currently. They risk their lives driving to school every morning just like the rest of us do. There are tens of thousands of them back in the classroom and they're not "dying".  They're not heading off to the front lines on the battlefield. If individually they are high risk, exceptions are being made at every single open school I've read about.

So what did they decide about Saban? Did he have a false positive then?

Anyone know the difference between the $100 jersey and $150 jerseys. 

$50

I’ve worked 250+ hours on the Covid floor at work and another few hundred in the ER where you’re unknowingly exposed often. My wife has worked dozens of hours on the Covid floor at her work. I feel like everyone in my house has had it already or been exposed plenty.

Kinda like we had to bite the bullet and not get together for Easter, mother’s and Father’s Day, summer holidays. Bite the bullet and not go on vacations or have weddings and parties or go to sports games. Bite the bullet and homeschool our kids. Bite the bullet and not get together for Christmas or New Years, either.

the health dept just came to my house..presumably because 1 of the 4 tests my fiance took came back positive.  They had called her a few times but she didnt call them back.  She didnt answer the door.  it has been 12 days since that test anyway so im not sure why they are stressing it.

This sounds really bizarre they’re so persistent, especially given the timeline and that they probably have thousands of others to follow up with. Is she dodging them for a reason?

Remember when we were evil people according to S&L because we couldn’t just stay indoors until May

BYU is warning students against intentional contracting Covid so they can sell their plasma.

Well, maybe you could lower your tuition prices, then, instead?


Officials at Brigham Young University-Idaho are warning students against intentionally contracting Covid-19 in order to sell plasma that contains antibodies, despite no evidence such schemes are actually underway.

You better not be doing what we have absolutely no proof we think you’re doing!

Don’t they have a throat swab test now or am I just imagining this?

I posted a link on here a couple months ago about some breakthrough oral swab and never heard anything about it again.

Absentee. Got it in the mail yesterday. Not sure if I’ll mail it back in or drop it off.

I feel bad for restaurants. We were in Frickers Saturday night and it should have been busy. NBA finals game, college football, and maybe baseball(?) all going on and after 10pm it was pretty empty. There’s no point in being there if you can’t drink. It probably closed at 11pm. I agree with a lot of DeWine has done but the 10pm alcohol rule needs to be done. He’s going to murder these places once the outdoor dining goes away. 

friendfromlowry replied to "Dining out in the age of covid" at 10:19 am

We do it all but not much. Only indoor a couple times. Been drinking on patios several times but I suppose that’ll end soon. Not sure what we will do this winter but doubt it’ll be much.

It got him?  Like severe? 


Idk, just saw on ESPN he was positive. I assume he’s fine like most athletes are.
