    I'm not about the DVR life with football games, especially now.  I'm too linked in with the team via a bunch of social media channels, the game would get ruined for me so i try to watch them all from kickoff live.  I will be able to make it work wednesday but it's still weird. 

    I let the DVR record the first 45-60 minutes of a game before I watch it in order to skip over the commercials and other bullshit. It usually catches up to the live feed late 3rd-early 4th quarter.

    Definitely going to play my Steelers Defense in my FFL then. Jackson ruled OUT for the game.

    I see Benedict Roberts went with the libs.

    He did dissent, but not for the reason you may be thinking:

     CHIEF  JUSTICE  ROBERTS, dissenting:

    "I would not grant  injunctive relief under the  present circumstances.  There is simply no need to do so.  After  the Diocese and Agudath  Israel filed their applications, the Governor revised the designations of the affected areas. None of the  houses  of worship identified in  the  applications is now subject to any  fixed numerical restrictions.  At  these locations, the applicants can hold  services with up to 50% of capacity,  which is at  least as favorable as the relief they currently seek. Numerical capacity limits of 10 and  25 people, depending on the applicable zone,  do seem unduly restrictive.  And  it may well be that such restrictions  violate the  Free Exercise Clause.  It is not necessary, however, for us to rule on that serious and  difficult question at this time.  The Governor might reinstate the restrictions.  But he also might not. And it is a  significant matter  to override  determinations made by public health officials concerning what is necessary for public safety in the midst  of a deadly pandemic.  If the Governor does reinstate the numerical restrictions the applicants  can return  to this Court, and  we could act quickly on their renewed applications.  As things now stand, however, the applicants have not demonstrated their entitlement  to “the extraordinary  remedy of  injunction.”

    Right, I said development and I said US Govt. 

    True, but that kinda came across as meaning that Pfizer didn't take any US money, so I wanted to clear the air.

    In your defense, no pharmaceutical company, to my knowledge, received their vaccine funding solely from the US or Operation Warp Speed either, so it's a bit foolish to call any vaccine the "Trump" vaccine.

    Without operation warp speed vaccine wouldn't have been completed. Right or wrong the Democrats just have a different way of doing business. Look at the Red State Governors versus the Blue State governors. Do state Governors are much more proud just to lock everybody down and impose martial law on the citizens. And miles and miles of red tape which would make the vaccine months longer to produce if not years. Now how much that is due to the base desire to spite the president? I would guess a substantial amount.

    Trump vaccine.... hahaha


    Pfizer didn't even take money from the US govt for the development of their vaccine...

    Full disclosure upfront: I work in the pharmaceutical industry for a company that is actively working on a Covid-19 vaccine, so that is where I'm getting the following insights from:

    Every pharmaceutical company working on a vaccine is receiving funding from the government: Not to rain on Pfizer's patriotic parade, but they're not being entirely truthful when they say they didn't take government money for vaccine development. It is true that Pfizer didn't accept any US funding for vaccine development, with development being the operative word. They did, however, receive nearly $2 billion from Operation Warp Speed funding as an advance payment for 100 million doses of vaccine. Also, Pfizer probably didn't need development funding from the US since they've already received nearly $400 million from Germany alone and another $120 million from the EU as a whole for vaccine development. To be more accurate, BioNTech - the company that Pfizer is partnered with in making the vaccine - received this funding, but you'd be stretching the truth till it breaks to say they received no funding.

    INSANE is correct Vambo..... Mostly because Trump is proving- he is indeed INSANE. 

     Every (frivolous) legal challenge he's mounted so far has been summarily tossed out of court to to the tune of 0-12. But he's apparently OK with disenfranchising 100s of thousands of legally cast ballots on a technicality. 

    I don't think it's necessarily frivolous.

    I think it's pretty apparent that there has been impropriety in several states in this election that wouldn't be investigated without lawsuits. To what degree that these incidents have affected the results remains to be seen, but I think it's worth bringing them to light and scrutinizing them. Even if Biden comes out on top after the legalities have concluded, it will go a long way in legitimizing the results. As we currently stand, there is that cloud of doubt hanging over the election results and that is never good for a democracy.

    It doesn't matter who I voted for. We all ended up voting for trump in Ohio. 

    I've made it a point to vote for the loser in every election since I've been eligible to vote. The only exception was 2016 when every metric said trump would lose. That's why I don't trust the polls now. They fucked up my record. 

    It's all good, bruh. I voted for Gary Johnson in 2016 and I still don't know what Aleppo is.

    I voted for Jo Jorgenson so your insults while sufficiently petty fall a little flat on me...

    Did you at least pick up your free jar of hummus and your mood crystal necklace at the exit poll after pulling the lever for Jorgenson?

  9. I posted this on another thread somewhere, but I forget which one.

    I work for a large biotech company here in Ohio that is paying for COVID tests for it's employees. I took the free COVID antibody test last week and found out that I had contracted COVID sometime within the last 4-6 months without even knowing it. I never showed any symptoms, nor did anyone else in my family and friends group. I guess I'm in the lucky majority of people who get COVID and are asymptomatic.

  10. Realistically, it's highly unlikely the Browns are making it to the playoffs via the divisional championship route. And with the wins by Miami and LA Raiders today, the wildcard picture is looking a bit crowded.

    Browns are going to have to play lights out on the back 9 of this season to earn a wildcard berth.

    Regardless of how you feel about her, it is kind of a big deal still.    Shows America IS a land of promise, no?

    Actually, looking at the background and track record of Harris, I think she taints the ideal of being potentially the first woman President.
