really trying to project your voice would also project more droplets and aerosols,


That could describe much of the SW. But not all.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Also watched the Italian hooligan flick "Ultras" on Netflix. the main character looks like my 5th grade Math teacher, Mr Bellucci. at least this was better than Puerta7, a little better than The English Game, mainly because the score souned very Clockwork Orange-y/Giorgio Moroder-like.

Fantastic movie on Netflix. Got to binge watch Sunderland Til I Die now

According to a friend out for a run, Prospect Park is currently packed with idiots not practicing protocols. Makes me think we'll be dealing with rounds of suppression until a vaccine is available. 


RED. BULL. OUT.

I live nearby Prospect Park and had to stop even trying to go any time in the afternoon. People are (mostly) trying to keep their distance but its just too many trying to get fresh air at once. The sheer density makes it impossible to distance appropriately no matter how well-meaning you are.

The only people in Prospect Park not practicing distancing protocols are the people that congregate in the Drummer's Grove area (southeast corner). And they probably never will anyway. Other than that, the park was filled with plenty of people today enjoying the beautiful day outside, jogging, biking, walking and getting exercise, all mindful of each other.

So I'm not sure why your friend is trying to spread fake news but you should go for a walk around the loop. It's safe and a great way to blow off steam. It's completely unrealistic to think everyone is just going to sit inside this entire time.

Completely false. I've been there at various hours multiple times and it's not anywhere close to "impossible".

Ah, we are by that Parkside/Drummers Grove entrance but Reggie can be dramatic, I'll tell him to hush. I've been going after 8pm, and then its fine for keeping big gaps while biking laps. Will get tougher as it warms up and people get antsy.

Each run I've tried on the loop in the afternoon there's a handful of times where the road was so packed side to side with families and runners that passing someone with more than six feet of space was for sure impossible.

 

Most of the day its perfectly fine with people doing exactly like you said, getting out responsibly enjoy a breath of fresh air. I'm only talking about peak afternoon hours after people get stir crazy. I started hitting the park in the morning and its been totally fine, can't stress how thankful I am to have that space nearby.

 

We'll see how long the remaining parties last last now that Cuomo bumped the fine for social gathering from 500 to 1000, assuming NYPD actually enforces it.

They let trolls in the park???


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Yeah it will definitely get more crowded as it gets nicer. The drummers grove people are just congregating and smoking weed, like they always do, but they don't bother anyone.

I'm bummed they probably aren't going to have the free concerts this summer there. Hopefully smorgasburg can happen in some capacity.

You could always try Greenwood cemetery. Tons of trails, tons of space, less people (but no bike riding). There's a few ponds there that are nice to sit by.

I haven't heard of a single story of someone being fined with that. I don't think any cops would want to enforce it.

By peak hours do you mean like 5pm?

18% of the NYPD are calling in sick. There are not enough working to enforce that restriction, and those actually showing up do not want to get close to anybody.

Based on what? There are so many different projections out there now it's almost like you can find one to match anyone's fear.

We aren't even a week into April and you are ready to pull the plug on all sports this year? Seems alarmist.

based on what I do for a living I'm a Paramedic
And finishing nursing school


I work in one of the biggest ERs in Florida and have been in EMS going on 17 years....

I had to study shit like this in nursing school as well... This is not going to end with a snap of the fingers... The human body has no immunity to COVID19.. People can get it more than once and every time have a higher mortality rate.... It creates scared tissue in the lungs if you get viral pneumonia from it and if you survive you're left with scar tissue in the lungs which is COPD and then you are more susceptible to getting it again and worse than before
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

People really need to stay home.. Inside like as if there's zombies outside.

Because they're just acting as viral vectors

What is your proof that they are viral vectors?

 
What he mentioned in the post just before that. No immunity + long incubation period = people unknowingly being viral vectors.

That's why it's dangerous to assume you're virus-free and ignore guidance just because you aren't showing symptoms.
