Quote from: Unbeliever on October 24, 2020, 01:41:35 PMI've never had to work out, I just worked, and that was enough excercize for me. All that physical labor left me with little energy for more. I did lift weights when I played football in school, but that was a loooong time ago!
Quote from: Mermaid on October 24, 2020, 03:55:45 PMI loved to run. It was a meditation for me. I can't do it anymore because my knees are destroyed, and that's just sad. I loved the post-run chills and endorphin rush.
Quote from: GSOgymrat on October 26, 2020, 01:36:16 AMOne of my coworkers returned to the gym in July but says he is not going anymore. He says up until a month ago people were conscientious about cleaning equipment and wearing masks but he says now people have slacked off. He said the final straw was there was a guy working out beside him with no mask and coughing uncontrollably.
Quote from: SGOS on October 26, 2020, 06:34:02 AMIf you want to open parts of the economy, at least do it with rules of safety. There are essential things we need to do, like buying groceries, but at least reduce the dangers. Talk about a compromise, not the best of two worlds, but still two worlds where safety and commerce coexist to the mutual benefit of each other. But people don't want compromise. Actually, I'm not big on it either, but since we need both, I'd be willing to consider it. It's pig headed and senseless to insist on opening the economy without any safety precautions.Back before the second wave of the pandemic, I heard governors reassuring that they were going to open the economy while keeping an eye (a close eye as I remember) on the pandemic. Whatever the Hell that means, I don't know. You can watch the pandemic surge until the cows come home, claiming you have your eye on it all the while. Clearly, that reassurance was political bullshit that never meant to actually do a damn thing about the pandemic other than watch it surge. "Don't worry folks. I've go my eye on it."
