  1. The mods are clearly doing something more worthwhile with their Friday nights than we are.
  2. I believe it is disputed actually. One of the article links above has an interview with an immunologist who says there is mounting evidence that the vaccine is more effective than natural immunity and that natural immunity plus vaccine is also more effective than just natural immunity. However, statements like "mounting evidence" means there is not enough data/analysis of data to make a definitive statement yet.This makes sense to me since the vaccine is only months old.
  3. I may be a wrestleknownothing, but I am a mathknowsomething.
  4. Nope, that is just one ton. He used plural. I want to know how much weight he thinks has been fired. Say its two tons. Assuming an average weight of 150 lbs that is only 26.66 people. Seems fine.
  5. The key difference is that polio, measels, etc do not mutate so a vaccine is very effective and a disease can cease to exist by being denied the hosts it needs to live. Meanwhile, things like the flu and Covid actively mutate, so any vaccine is aiming at a moving target. This is why the flu vaccine has such a relatively low effectiveness. Epidemiologists need to guess which strain of the flu will prevail this year and they have to do it sufficiently in advance to allow for the manufacture prior to the start of the flu season. One of the key arguments for gettung everyone vaccinated against Covid is to deny the virus hosts because it is only in the presence of a host that it can mutate. There is an excellent book by John Barry called The Great Influenza that is all about the Spanish Flu pandemic (that actually is now believed to have started in yhe US). It explains alot of the epidemiology too.
  6. I'm partial to Kid Dynamite. Just has a ring to it.
  7. Fixed my part, but I'm pretty sure you can put an ACL in your back pocket. Perhaps not advisable, but possible.
  8. He got the high school tear replaced. And then re-tore it in college. He has not gotten the last two replaced.
  9. And lets not forget that 7-0 was against a guy who looked like his goal was to not lose by 8. Courtney looked like he used that match to work on his cardio.
  10. I don't like your logic. You start by saying you don't know, but then you proceed like you do know. That is the kind of reasoning that always derails these threads and turns them into political arguments.
  11. So you admit you don't know if its true, but you still want to condem it? Often in error, never in doubt.
  12. Seems unlikely they would bump Michigan given their lofty dual ranking. If you are going to bump a team, bump one of the bottom ranked. Seems more likely Michigan pulled out for whatever reason.
  13. I feel like I have read that somewhere...
  14. I hope it is possible (but doesn't happen). I want to know Peter Pan exists.
  15. Yep, high school senior Micic beat high school freshman Nick Lee. Now they finish college together. Would have been better if Micic finished after.
  16. Now that is a training table I can support. But that red cup feels like a missed opportunity.
  17. That's interesting. Michael Phelps won in 2003, before he had won any Olympic medals.
  18. The press release was from 7 weeks ago and had Michigan. Michigan is no longer going and was replaced by Penn State. So the press release was accurate when it was released.
  19. Sadly it doesn't help the gene pool because most are of an age where they have already contributed.
  20. Or.... We are looking at a press release from Aug 3rd. It is not Aug 3rd anymore.
