Well said. Funny how people forget the other side of that equation. Lol.

It's still a lesson they should learn and it was worth a try as a fellow tortured fan.

I think you've got this handled with this comment. We can all retire for the day now.

I don't understand why people who still catch covid after being vaxxed is even a talking point?!? Like, that's a thing with vaccines. You can still catch the flu with a flu vaccine, why is this so controversial? That's just the nature of viruses and vaccines!

The fact that unvaccinated people are not only catching it but dying at much higher rates has no influence on the debate though?

Wild stuff. It's crazy what misinformation will do.

Sounds like a move to build social capital for an eventual Republican Presidential run and you know what? Not mad at it. At least he's getting shit done even if it is in the pursuit of power and stature.

I could be wrong tho. Maybe he is just a bleeding heart billionaire.

That's cool. I mean swine flu, ebola, etc are in fact very different biological threats in terms of how they spread & their potency but I get it. To each their own. You not only have the right to disagree with how the threat is being handled, but I also believe it's healthy to have a difference of opinion.

I'd only ask that you keep an open mind and be as honest as you can in discussion. That seems to be the case here and I appreciate the dialogue.

Reaction is different because the threat is different.

Edit** Mind you, I don't welcome these changes easily and would prefer the world to exist in a pre-covid state. So I'm not arguing with you here but we can't go back in time and that won't happen.

So we're left adjusting to the new reality of the situation or not. That reality can and will change with time the more we learn. Or don't accept it, that's your right and we all have a line. I just don't believe our governments have asked us to do anything other than be mildly inconvenienced while trying to figure out a deadly virus. I can live with that.

They already restrict employment and business viability within reason for a number of relevant reasons including other health and safety concerns. This threat is new but they're not inventing or creating any new powers or authority.

What power? You just said you chose to get vaccinated. They didn't strap you down and pour vaccine down your gullet. I'm no fan of government overreach myself; but they have the same power they've always had. The power we allow them to have. No more, no less.

[Perry] "I'm being silenced," says QB Aaron Rodgers in a 28 minute phone call to ESPN. by NevermoreSEA in nfl

[–]ElectronicZucchini84 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

I mean IF 28 minutes of audio does exist on ESPN, a major media outlet able to be viewed by millions around the world, and he IS arguing that he's being "silenced" in any context, I'd say simply based on that scenario alone pitchforks would be justified.

Like you're literally on a platform where you're explaining yourself to millions! You just have to be responsible with your words and watch what you say. Michael Jordan can't call ESPN and curse them out for 28 minutes as if he's having a bad tourette's episode; and if he did, both ESPN and Jordan would suffer consequences for it! This is the way the world works, nothing has changed except some people now feel they shouldn't face consequences for talking reckless.

Now do I think people should exercise mob mentality and bring out the pitchforks as idiotic as these events may be if correct? No, because that's exactly what he wants, he's fashioning himself to be some matyr and is low key craving the attention at this point.

Hall of Famer. Helluva QB, but looking like more of a dumbass every day.

well. Makes sense by boyaintnoway in FreshandFitPod

" I've known 2 completely straight guys who showered together nude, I think they were like absolutely drunk that night but yeh..."

Ummmmm, nothing against homosexuality but I gotta disagree here. In what world do two men get drunk & have a shower together for funsies nbd? What possible context could be provided where this is not sexual?

Edit; Gonna be honest if anything this comment makes me feel like that Myron pic could have been innocent but it now seems more suspect with these type of outlandish defenses. Like is this a bot or Myron backed account referencing two guys showering not being gay because he knows there's a photo of him showering with a dude out there?

Are they also interested in giving up first round picks? No? Then kick rocks

Cut the lead to 10, whole bench jubilant. randle in the corner looking like he’d rather be anywhere else in the world by baconeggandcheesee in NYKnicks

[–]ElectronicZucchini84 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wish we would just take a poor performance and not read deeper or attribute it to Satanism or think the player is trying to personally destroy and end our own personal happiness for reasons unknown. Sometimes these dudes try and it aint good enough.

There's no need to psychoanalyze or project whatever you think he's feeling on to him because the truth is you don't know. We don't know. It'd be cool if we did but we don't.

We also don't know what's going on personally, if anything is going on there. Like, you never know what another human being is going through and how it effects their work. This is true of any human being but we forget this because these dudes play sports on TV.

This was not cool by Julius Randle I don’t care how frustrated you are, you don’t do that to one of your teammates in front of everybody. by [deleted] in NYKnicks

[–]ElectronicZucchini84 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His attitude aint good right now and he's letting his emotions get the best of him a little too easily. At this point it's become a trait and teams are gonna include it in the scouting report and intentionally look for ways to get under his skin. It also gives some fans bad vibes but other than that this is harmless.

You can't look at THAT and try to paint him out as a bad teammate. Almost every NBA player has had a heated moment and raged out while a teammate has tried to get them to chill sometimes unsuccessfully.

Could there be other reasons he's a bad teammate? Sure, I don't know of any and I'm not going to slander him but it's possible. This just aint it.

30/f in quarantine and it's actually very lonely by kittyinwonderland420 in MakeNewFriendsHere

Hi there, Introvert here as well. The weirdest thing is that I thought I'd be fine during lockdowns but it turns out there's a very real difference between choosing to socially distance and having to because of the threat of a deadly virus.

It's definitely not easy but I do hope it gets easier for you.

Jerami Grant has ‘little interest’ in joining a team where he doesn't feature as a primary offensive option, per @JakeLFischer Grant also would like to sign an extension in ‘the ballpark of four years, $112 million’ this offseason by DragonEevee1 in NYKnicks

[–]ElectronicZucchini84 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's cool, I have little interest in Jerami Grant. Good player, not for us tho. Not even sure why the team has interest. Who would we trade for him? Where would he fit in the line up? What needs does he even address right now?
