  1. An old Rancher is talking about politics with a young man from the city. He compares a politician to a "post turtle." The young man doesn't understand and asks him what a post turtle is. The old man says, "When you're driving down a country road and you see a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle. You know he didn't get up there by himself. He doesn't belong there; you wonder who put him there; he can't get anything done while he's up there; and you just want to help the poor, dumb thing down."
  2. Yeah, I hear ya. I originally bought a high end lcd. It had the best picture rating outside of Oled and Qled tv's at the time. Watching hockey and football I would see vertical banding every time the camera panned quickly. It was frustrating because my plasma had such a great picture. I ended up exchanging it so many times they eventually issued me a refund which was lucky because the oled happened to be on sale for roughly the same price. Couldn't be happier with the picture quality. Well, maybe a 4k plasma if they existed.
  3. Calgary has got their own Carol f#$%in Baskin? Also the husband looks familiar, like a local journalist or sports broadcaster. I can't put my finger on it
  4. I've had a 65" Oled for 2 years now and I haven't noticed any burn in at all (touch wood). My kids play a lot of video games too so if it was going to happen to anyone, it would be me. Oleds do a pixel refresh after so many hours of viewing as well, so that may help.
  5. Can you still get a 1080p tv? Although most cable is still broadcast in 1080, most new series stream in 4k and there is a huge difference imo. After my kid threw buzz lightyear through my plasma tv a couple of years ago I've been searching for something comparable as far as picture quality goes. Oled is the only thing that come close. The LG smart tv interface and magic remote are amazing as well. Keep an eye out for sales at costco, they go on every couple of months. You can't beat their extra year of warranty and the extended warranty is the cheapest of any retailer by a long shot as well.
  6. I told my kids to watch out for Canadian geese whenever I took them to bird sanctuary. We now refer to them as jerk ducks.
  7. Infections and Transmission Among Children It is unclear whether children are as susceptible to infection by SARS-CoV-2 compared with adults and whether they can transmit the virus as effectively as adults. Recent evidence suggests that children likely have the same or higher viral loads in their nasopharynx compared with adults7 and that children can spread the virus effectively in households and camp settings.8,9 Due to community mitigation measures and school closures, transmission of SARS-CoV-2 to and among children may have been reduced in the United States during the pandemic in the spring and early summer of 2020. This may explain the low incidence in children compared with adults. Comparing trends in pediatric infections before and after the return to in-person school and other activities may provide additional understanding about infections in children. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/pediatric-hcp.html Children over age 10 spread COVID-19 as much as adults, study finds https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/coronavirus/children-over-age-10-spread-covid-19-as-much-as-adults-study-finds-1.5030231

  9. A friend of mine is an elementary school EA and both of her kids are very ill at the moment. They have both had covid tests and are still waiting on the results. She called her principal to see what to do and she was informed that the protocol had changed and if she didn't have symptoms then she should come in to work. He also told her to call 811 for clarification and they said the same thing. What happened to asymptomatic carriers, is that not a thing anymore? Anyhoo, we're effed.
  10. I can tell you that in Delta there is no online or hybrid option. If you choose to have your kids stay home the only option is home schooling and there is no teacher support in this scenario. If you choose this option you are also basically forfeiting their spot at the school until the following school year. Classes will be damn near full.
  11. You can't put 30 kids in a classroom and keep a 2 meter distance so rather than reduce class size they change the protocol.
