  1. Sorry, i haven't been following this much lately. I was under the impression that she said masks help but aren't perfect. Not sure what you mean by glory holes but Albertan tourists are Ok if they never leave their vehicles. (That was a joke) My sister lives in Calgary, are you saying she can never visit her family ever again?
  2. I believe them, especially Dr.B but i don't believe a damn word that comes out of the states right now, especially NYTimes or CNN. NYTimes is the national enquirer.
  3. Hogwash? Dude, they say right in it that some masks that are sold aren't effective. If you feel so safe with it on, go into a spray booth with only that on. They conclude by saying those tests proved they kept droplets out while talking, thats great if you have a drooling problem but when you sneeze, it comes out with such force that droplets are then atomized. They go right through a speedo mask.
  4. Those masks don't do much. If you want to keep particulates out, you need an N-95 mask on. You'd be breaking WCB rules if you showed up to work in a spray booth wearing a speedo on your face. So you're at risk of ingesting toxins at work and the WCB has rules to make sure you don't get sick. They wouldn't say ' oh yeah, just put a glorified doo-rag on your face and your good to go.' You need a respirator with fresh filters that need to be changed every 8 hours while dealing with vapours and you need a N-95 mask for dealing with particulates, That being said those hokey masks are better than nothing, just be aware that they aren't stopping much of your sneeze from coming out. It's giving you a completey false sense of security.
  5. They do that to avoid paying overtime too. Hopefully they fix that problem. Thats really bad considering what the care workers have to go through now. Big thank you to them for sure.
  6. Didn't you watch it, GetBackJoeJoe? Get Back To The USSR, can't you hear the balalaika's ringing out? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balalaika#:~:text=The balalaika (Russian%3A балала́йка%2C pronounced [bəɫɐˈɫajkə]) is a,wooden%2C hollow body%2C fretted neck and three strings. This was a far better response than GetBackJoeJoe's. I heard of the multiple care home workers quite awhile ago, i guess it takes awhile to reschedule every care home. Did you watch that video? That guy knows his stuff. Triple board certified MD.
  7. There has been doctors who've spent their entire careers studying infectious diseases saying these things and youtube deletes them? Do you know more than this guy?
  8. Why is to that there's been tons of outbreaks at nursing homes after they've been quarantined from their family's for 3 months, not even being allowed to say their last goodbyes on their deathbeds. If they aren't getting it from them, where do they get it from? Did one of them escape? The workers are also quarantined from their family, so how is there all these outbreaks after 3 months of quarantining? Many people have pointed out that family members that were corona cases died from other ailments, why does youtube and FB take those down as well as medical professionals that have uploaded vids of what they see at work? I saw half a dozen doctors say that malaria Q drug works, their opinion isn't good enough? Being on the front lines, they're not allowed to upload a video of what they see? Why doesn't the virus effect BLM protesters or Chaz but it does Trump supporters protesting the virus? Is it being used for politics by the dems? Sure seems that way to me, considering how many cases in the US. Someone please give me a rational response and not some FB memes, please? Change my mind by using reason, not an emotional knee jerk reaction.
  9. Of course you'd agree, Comrade.
  10. You people love our milk and honey, maybe buy a poppy or something.
  11. Cool, my great nephew plays for the Parksville Sharks, he also plays hockey with the Parksville Outlaws. My other great nephew played hockey on the Yale Lions, midget team. Same team that Virtanen played on. He's going to move up to jr A next season, committed to play in SJHL. He played in 6 games in the BCHL last year. I can watch every game on hockeytv.com
  12. Wow, that's cool. I knew Jason'Kicking ' Bird. He was the Northern pacific Mauy Thai HW Champ back in the 90's. I lived in Whiskey Creek for awhile and there was a lot of kids into it. I got another great lacrosse story from the 80's. I had a couple cousins that played for my dads jr.b team in Parksville. One of them made the Nanaimo Timbermen and he was a wild man. Scraped almost every game, he got into a stick swinging incident, the other guy hit him in the head first and cousin got him too good. he had blood coming out of his ear. needles to say, my cousin was suspened for the rest of the season. During his suspension, him, one of my other cousins and two other buddys one t to watch the same team play the Timbermen. They got drunk and harrassed the other team and when the game ended, they met them in the parking lot. 4 guys were beating up that whole team. my cuz was fighting two guys while backing up, he tripped on something and the coach of the other team saw this, ran over and kicked his face in while wearing danton's My cuzes cheekbone was shattered and in fragments. A few weeks after that on his brothers 19th birthday, my uncles got him falling down drunk, which was tradition for all of us when we turned 19. My cuz, the one 19th birthday one, got too drunk and they were trying to put him to bed when he round house kicked my other cuz right in the same spot. I think there was another brawl that weekend too. I have alot of story's about my wild family. Those aren't even the best ones, just the lacrosse ones.
  13. I grew up in Nanoose Bay, went to elementary school on Morrelo road, How's that for some ancient history. i remember those fun sandcastle brawls, some of my friends were the best scrapers in Parksville back then. Those riots that happened were crazy, what happened was the beer gardens and Dance at the hall ended at the same time. Thousands of drunk people leaving at once. My first memory of a Parksville beach brawl was when my dad coached Jr. B Box Lacrosse, this was in the mid/late 70's and i was just a little kid. Parksville went right to the finals that year and played Bella Coola i think it was. Anyway the other team had a ringer, a huge, at least 250 pounder around 18 or 19, His jr A team was eliminated so he was eligible to play for the jr B team. He ran through our team and Parksville lost the Championship game. The fighting started in the Arena and carried out to the parking lot, it was absolute mayhem and one of my earliest memory's. My Uncle, who was assisstant coach, drove by and said something to the kid and his family. The kid nailed my Uncle right in the face with the wood end of his Lacrosse stick and his dad and uncle pulled my uncle out of his vehicle, held his arms behind his back while the 250 kid light him up. My dad, who was at least 270 at the time, saw this, ran across the parking lot, spun the kid by the shoulder and landed a massive haymaker. KTFO the kid, then beat up his dad and uncle. Like hockey, Box Lacrosse was crazy back then. It's a much different world we live in now.
  14. Age shaming isn't cool bro, of course i've heard of William Shatner. Seth Rogan isn't Canadian and his first names Joe not Seth.
