    I'd recommend that Zeke look at how Oklahoma State handles it, and do the opposite.

    LOL - proper internet etiquette. How else do you get attention on a message board? "I know something you don't know...but I'm not telling"

    Habit of dropping the occasional puzzling match....he lost 5 matches his last three years of college wrestling.  Marinelli, I-Mart, Marinelli, Mekhi, Marinelli.  Hell, his losses as a freshman were Subjeck, Isaac Jordan, I-Mar, I-mart.  That's one puzzling loss in his whole career and it was in his second match as a freshman.  Pay your debts.

    I'm in Seattle and watched someone fall about 4 feet off a narrow hiking trail while trying to avoid being near someone over the weekend. Funny part was, they both had masks on. Like watching a set of magnets. Agree there's a value to precaution, but we've crossed the line into the ridiculous in many cases.

    Dude - you're nuts if:
    1. You think that any information coming out of China on this topic, or any other is accurate. I mean, from concentration camps (https://www.businessinsider.com/video-chinese-ambassador-confronted-over-blindfolded-uighur-muslims-2020-7), to COVID cases (less than most US states) - there's a well documented history.
    2. You'd trade this for that. I mean, life sucks sometimes in the US, but at least you get to live it without worrying about the government disappearing you because you're suddenly out of favor.
    But, as I'm reminded frequently, some people like different stuff. You might honestly prefer that, and that's ok.

    It's not a false dichotomy - the individual stated a preference for one over the other. Personally, I disagree (as noted), but the dichotomy is very real - I prefer this system to that one, and cu155 views the other as a worthwhile trade off. I'm not sure how to make that one simpler.
    "People can argue about 'freedom' all they want but the reality is that someone in China currently has much more freedom to go to school or a restaurant or a doctor's visit without fear of contracting and dying from Covid than someone in the US.  Not a bad trade off."

    Unfortunately - that's the world we live in. If you want to put forth a proposal to regulate things so that there will be no potential fires, I applaud your effort. However, the same could be said for wood burning stoves, those that accidentally start fires while cooking, or any number of other potential fire hazards. You can want people to live their lives by your standard - but you might consider wanting in your right hand, while defecating in your left and seeing which fills more quickly....

    Well, if you want to get technical, in all likelihood, it's the bank's house - so no, you don't get to wire it however you want. On the chance that you own it free and clear, yes, I think you should be able to bizarrely wire it to your heart's content. That does seem like a reasonable ask.
    The further you get into regulation, the further it can potentially go. For example - drunk driving accidents could be easily prevented by simply outlawing drinking, right? It'll be regulated and safe - unless you have a clear stop, I think folks like Tbar would prefer you not start.

    Japan and South Korea are homogenous societies, so they tend to work together better than we could ever hope to in the USA. One nation is an island, and the other may as well be an island given its only land border is closed shut. Both populations have an extremely low percentage of obesity in their countries. 
    I read an article a while back that said Japan only had loose lockdowns and experts couldn't cite a single set of their policies that could easily be implemented elsewhere. 
    Analyzing just how Japan defied the odds and contained the virus while disregarding the playbook used by other successful countries has become a national conversation. Only one thing is agreed upon: that there was no silver bullet, no one factor that made the difference.
    “Just by looking at death numbers, you can say Japan was successful,” said Mikihito Tanaka, a professor at Waseda University specializing in science communication, and a member of a public advisory group of experts on the virus. “But even experts don’t know the reason.”
    One widely shared list assembled 43 possible reasons cited in media reports, ranging from a culture of mask-wearing and a famously low obesity rate to the relatively early decision to close schools. Among the more fanciful suggestions include a claim Japanese speakers emit fewer potentially virus-laden droplets when talking compared to other languages.

    LOL - so now, we're going to use the government to destroy the industry, then have the government subsidize the industry that they just destroyed. It makes sense if the goal is to put government in charge of everything...
    And the South Korean/Japanese response has been robust. However, it's not in the American tradition of individualism and self determination. I think you'll be hard pressed to make that work in our society, regardless of efficacy.

    This made me chuckle....you hear soooo many stories about coaches/older wrestlers "breaking" young newbies in the Gable era Iowa room (Lewboo talks about it all the time), it was almost considered a right of passage, yet when somebody else does it in another program the coach has an "ego issue".

    Not to get away from the focus, but it seems like this would be an ideal opportunity for someone like Flo (not that they will), to push the idea of wrestling being allowed to continue in more of a 'bubble' style. Hell, we weren't making money from the spectators anyway - and with football off in the Big10, it might be a chance to pick up a whole bunch of fans.
