    If everywhere else was closed but parks were open, guess which spots people would flood to? Crowded outdoor places are still a risk. I actually went on a casual hike at a nearby park recently and felt pretty unsafe because it was packed and there was no way you could navigate those trails while still keeping 6 feet away from other people.

    Again, it's much harder to spread it outside and you are not 85 years old. Probably best if you do get it and recover from it so you have antibodies. The adverse effect of social distancing is preventing herd immunity which will prolong the pandemic.

    Without the lockdown or social distancing measures the death toll was estimated to hit 2.2 million people in the U.S. alone. Instead its now closer to 100K and on track to end within the 120K-240K range they originally predicted. How the hell can you call those measures pointless? :D 

    I'm not saying it was ALL pointless. Im saying some of the measures went too far and do no good for anyone. Closing parks? Why? We know it's much harder to spread the virus outside.  Inside is where people are getting infected. Sun exposure also kills the virus, so again, why close parks, campgrounds, and beaches? It's not hard to keep your distance outside. But Wal-Mart is ok? 

     

    I guess if you're a hermit and love being inside it was just dandy for you. Being stuck inside is shit for my mental health. The fact I couldnt drive to a provincial Park because the parking lot was closed to prevent spread of a disease that wouldn't be spread in a place like that is fucking retarded

    number pulled out of your ass. 

     

     

    OMG you can't go camping for a few months.... teh horror, your life is over:lupe:

     

    Those at risk for complications from COVID19 is anyone.  You don't know how your body will react until you get it..... Yes older people and people with underlying conditions are more at risk..... but anyone can die from COVID-19... hence the stay at home orders to slow down the spread. 

     

    Things are opening back up... you will be able to go hike broke back mountain again soon enough. 

     

    What I'm saying is.. It was fucking pointless to go through the measures that were taken. Logically they make little to no sense you just go along with it because you like being told what to do cause you're a good little bitch bottom boy.

    Hey numb nuts, the numbers reduced because of the stay at home orders, without out it the death toll would be much much higher.   (It's already too high as it is already) 

    And 97% of the deaths comes from long term care facilities. So how does me staying at home help them? What should have been done is constant testing of nursing home employees and making sure they only work at one facility rather than multiple.  Me not going camping because a park is closed is not helping helping those at risk for complications from COVID19.

    I didn't want Biden, but he's who we are stuck with. He's definitely lost his fastball but anyone is better than Trump. 

     

    This is like having the penguin and the joker running for mayor of Gotham city. One wants money and is a bit sneaky. The other wants to see the world burn and enjoys the suffering of others. There is a difference. 

    No "anyone" is not better than Trump.  Have some standards.

    You're on the beach drinking Corona while on System Wars ....you're proving me right that you lack common sense:lawl:

     

     

    I'm putting up a grill in the backyard of my new house :whew:

    Shelter in place lacks common sense when you actually look at the totality of the epidemic and who it affects most. It's a reactionary policy made on the fly, we now know the virus is far less deadly than anticipated and we should be focusing on how to enhance our immune systems so when we do get the virus it does as little damage as possible while also getting the benefit of immunity from antibodies through exposure.
