  1. Where did I suggest that?? My post specifically suggests people aren’t against trying to find ways to treat it. But it’s preferable to treat only 20 vs treating 100. It’s just prioritizing. Prevention first, treatment second. Not saying you can’t or shouldn’t do both.
  2. I think the frustration is just the mentality of trying to treat the symptoms rather than the cause. I don’t think anyone is really against trying to find ways to treat Covid, but if you can reduce the case count by 80% through prevention, it does make a little sense. Especially when it is so easily achieavable, scientifically proven and the real world data supports it. When you have a bad section of Highway that results in 100 deaths per year, you don’t solve the problem by building a hospital there or have emergency response there on standby to pick up the bodies - you look at what’s causing
  3. “The whole story”. Good grief, with millions of scientists and doctors studying this and 10’s of thousands of studies, I am at least smart enough to know that I will never know the whole story. Glad you have it figured out.
  4. You’re totally missing the point. For many of the unvaxed , it is in fact one or the other. And the fact that they choose the other to avoid the one that is available now and works. I will gladly do whatever it takes once it has been shown to be effective. In the meantime I choose to keep my intestinal lining. I have an open mind. The 20% not so much.
  5. Meanwhile the pandemic rages on as the less than intelligent try to find any reason NOT to use a proven method to combat it in hopes of finding some other solution. Call it blinders if you want, but I will choose that every day over something that one “hopes” could achieve maybe a similar result. It is very simple math and defensible stats. But no, “the government” has some hidden agenda. I knew I shouldn’t have bothered. At least I can take solace in the fact that Canadians at least are showing they can use their brains and powers of deduction a little better than many other countries. Not mu
  6. Partial truth? It’s not that it’s funny, it’s just that the reality is, no legitimate doctor is going to prescribe a horse dewormer when an extremely effective vaccine is available, so people are trying to get around it by getting the non human version. So it’s not that it’s a partial truth, it’s just reality that there are that many stupid people out there. Which isn’t funny, but is quite frightening and very depressing.
  7. I am so tired of the NHL dog days of summer where media and fans make stories out of nothing. Bo - signed Sept 8 (or so) 2017 Brock - signed Sept 16 2019 EP40 - has obviously been coached by his agent on what hot button words/ phrases to avoid. There is nothing in his interview that is inflammatory. As much as we would love him state how much he loves it here and how he never wants to leave Vancouver, his agent would be maybe just a little annoyed. I’m sure he will be saying those things next month. I must be getting old/ impatient with media and their stor
  8. I’m responding to this post but really it is in response to all the posts with this narrative. I think what many with this thought process truly fail to comprehend is, try telling a group of 20 or so professionals to just “wait one more year” in a career that spans 5-10 years. Pretty sure I wouldn’t want to wait and waste a year as a player. All else aside, we are a much better team than we were 2 hours ago. I think the players will appreciate that. I like this house cleaning trade a lot and am stoked already. And who knows what else is going to transpire. Things are looking great
  9. “Fraser Blue”? I have a feeling these designers don’t cross the Port Mann much. “Mocha Mavericks” would fit a little better. In any case, being in the Wack I am excited to get out to many of their games this year. Love this relocation.
  10. Anyone know if Mcdavid and Draisaitl are heading to Latvia tomorrow? Just flicked by the Canada Germany game and not sure if rosters are locked now. I’ve never had a lot of interest in this tournament but sure looks like we could use some help.
  11. My money is on DOPS coming up with a new term. I am waiting for “The Shinning”. Even a props to the Simpsons with that one.
  12. I will be livid if Zack gets a game so Nurse is spared further humiliation on Saturday. But I won’t be surprised.
  13. Good grief. That has got to be embarrassing/ humiliating for nurse. K ew he was in trouble and bailed. Ugh.
  14. Yep. Should be a great third. Easy money is on Zack. Nurse has horrible fighting mechanics. And his bow legs drop him down 2 inches as well. Should be entertaining watching his face cave in.
  15. I’m really starting to get an unhealthy hatred of McDavid. Nothing to do with how good he is. Just how he plays dirty and gets away with it. And knows no one will really challenge him because of who he is. And refs let it happen. I’m not religious but am praying he gets several punches to the face by one of our guys. I will buy that players jersey.
  16. Good question. I’m hoping Miller explodes on him later. He’s about our only player that has some meanness in him. Need more like that. And yes, McD still needs a face punch. Please Miller.
  17. I have never realized what a punchable face McDavid has. With all his crap, whining and cheap shots, I am praying for a Canuck to help me out here. I’ll say it here, if Macewan punches him I am buying his jersey.
  18. This is one of the best posts I have read recently. Sonofa… I am still chuckling about it. Made my day.
  19. Same boat. Unlike others mine was pretty smooth. Registered April 6, got my text this morning (8:20) that I could book. Went online and there were tons of spots available today. Got it at 12:15. Pfizer. I’m 53.
  20. As great as McD is, I am extremely tired of watching how much $&!# he gets away with. Sure wish we had someone that would step into him.
  21. Who’s the resident meme generator that could creat one - objects in mirror type thing with Bo, Brock and QH Ccoming at you. Lol. Here we come Habs.
  22. Lots of good reasons to sign him if we can. Other than what’s already been stated: Anchoring - sign him, the gesture gives him an NHL paycheque and is a solid move to anchor him with the org Planning - in this cap world there are a ton of things to weigh. Seeing how he looks and may fit in the group will play a huge part in what we do in the offseason for trades, signings. Gotta know what we have before we commit for the future. - Fan engagement/ excitement. We all want to see him. We pay the bills. Nothing like being excited for the next season. That said I have
  23. Jesus Nucks. All I can say is I can relate. And I know the distraction part. As a huge Canucks fan and eternal optimist what I can say that isn’t deep, but something that maybe brings something to you and your mom - we are 10 points back on the oilers. We play them 5 more times. There is always hope. There is always something to look forward to. There is always something more meaningful. Live for the day. All the best to you.
  24. It’s the Oilers that I’ve been eyeing in the standings. Overachieving and winning with one player. And we play them 5 more times Fate is definitely in our own hands. I still believe. Especially with some key players coming back.
