My localities situation? I dunno, I stopped paying attention. I wear the mask. Gonna wait on the shot because I never buy the first model of anything. Honestly, I think there's something weird about the entire thing. Can't put my finger on what exactly and I'm not saying there isn't a virus. But something doesn't add up. Call it intuition I suppose. Or stupidity. Guess we'll see!
Me too! Somebody somewhere is making his children and grandchildren wealthy beyond their wildest dreams. I'm not smart enough to figure out how or who.

Yeah I definitely have thoughts on the matter but after I made that last post I actually felt like I probably shouldn't have. I probably would have deleted it in hindsight. I decided I'd rather just hang out in the shooting cans with steel section. Way more fun over there and less controversial.
Everyone remembers Thanksgiving as the day the whole family got together and an argument would inevitably ensue about one thing or another. These days we've turned almost the whole internet into Thanksgiving, minus the pleasant food and the coma on the couch in front of the football game . I'll just stick with talking about Wham-O's and PP's and Pickleforks and other oddly named slinging things. There's a little piece of paradise over there, don't wanna ruin it for myself haha! Oh, with the exception of the cow dung joke. That can stay.

"Playing nice" is what has got us to where we are today.

Indeed. I'm very thankful for all that I have, including this great community.

I love this forum, in part because it is an excellent example of common ground. People who see some topics at opposite ends of the spectrum still share a love of slingshots. It's like I tell my kids, nobody is all bad or all good. The worst will surprise you and the best will let you down once in a while. And the smartest will glom onto idiocy now and again while even the most moronic will get it right once in a while. So better to be patient and understanding while celebrating common ground and letting some of the other stuff slide now and then- especially when it doesn't affect you directly.

I think one of the great aspects of this forum is people with very diverse opinions on other topics realizing they have at least some overlapping interests and likes. Would be nice if more of the country had experiences like this, we might end up less polarized over a small number of issues.

Avoid catching the Wuhan flu by avoiding contaminated areas for continuous periods of time if crowds are present,,,,so we want you to go stand for an hour or two in a building with a crowd of individuals some of whom may be contaminated and get a shot to prevent the virus. Hello , I'm from the government and I'm here to help. :hmm:

• If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

• Somehow it's un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America .

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

• It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but was an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquired about it.

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

• Immigrants with tuberculosis and covid are welcome, but you'd better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang member or terrorist who jumps the southern fence is welcome.

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for "free" health care is not.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan for us.

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

• Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.

• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?!

Just a few months ago, our "positivity rate" had gone up to 8%.

And now it's 2.5%. And dropping. Thank you Chinese Vaccine, thank you Micro-Lockdown and most of all, THANK YOU Face-Mask.

The "positivity rate" is how scientists and policy makers measure how your country is doing. It's "how many tested-people out of a hundred tested positive". It doesn't matter if you tested a few hundred or a few million... the number remains accurate.

World average is or was 7%-12%. According to CDC, America's positivity rate has also fallen below 3%.

Pakistan donated emergency Covid supplies to the US last year. I didn't know that.

A pallet of protective masks sits at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, May 21, 2020.

The masks were part of a donation from the Pakistan Government, which included 100,000 protective masks and 25,000 coveralls to help support the United States as it combats the coronavirus pandemic.
