This could be of value for out-of-state pilots who want to visit…
Some restaurants have re-opened for dine-in service. Since this weekend I have binged on: Sizzlers, Olive Garden, Denny’s, Chili’s. Others also offering indoor dining: El Pollo Loco, Applebee’s, IHOP, Red Robin, BJ’s, Coco’s. The list is growing, but waiting on my favorite local Thai and pizza places. Note: Most (if not all) drive-through places have remained open throughout.
I called some motels/hotels near Marshall, and about 1/3 are open to the public, while others may only accept essential service workers.

Mitch : ” The Covid hoax was based on a projection of 3.5% infected fatality rate”.
Bille Floyd here — And i could really care less about “ALL” that sh!t ; what
i know, is that fricken Lil bug , (it almost took me Out) like
preeminently, as in Dead . You believe anything Ya want ; that
corona bug , is fricken Dangerous !!!
The % rate for Death , per number infected, here in Las Vegas
has bin holding at 2.07 % average, since the middle of
last month ; doing the math that’s 40% off the mark of 3.5 % projected
but still , “Quite” high. Here , do the math for the 30’th of Sept :
Infected : 67176 , dead : 1391 = 2.07 % death rate.
What is the death rate for the Flue ? Answer : about 23 X , Less !
BillOctober 3, 2020 at 12:03 PM #10334
That is interesting ; but it’s almost like Trump , was the one who directed the
CDC to say that !
That link said :
For the first time, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has given a realistic estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, which in its most likely scenario is 0.26 %.
Divide that .26% , by .o9% for the seasonal Flue deaths ; that still makes
covid-19 , 2.88 times (More dangerous) than the flue . Lets not forget about
the fact that covid kills old people like me ; at a way higher rate than it does
the younger people, (and you left that part out, in your argument).
I had Covid , and lived through it ; i had to fight Hard , to do that
and now i probably got Tuns of antibodies, to fight it off again, if needed.
A Bunch of people in the world ; they weren’t as Lucky , (or Healthy) as Me (.)

In the last 9 months, over 200,000 Americans have died from Covid-19. That’s between 4 and 6 times more than typically die from the flu in a given year. And it clearly isn’t over.
There haven’t been this many deaths from an infectious disease in a single year in the US in over 100 years.
As for if it is “more deadly” than the flu or not, consider this: The vast majority of the populace has some immunity to the flu. We’ve been exposed year after year, and a significant percentage of people get the flu vaccine. And there is some carry over immunity from strain to strain. That is not true for Covid-19. It is different enough from other corona viruses that there is very little, if any, cross immunity. Thus, many more people will get it without precautions. The evidence shows that also, not just reasoning. So even if Covid-19 was only as deadly as the flu, assuming no precautions, there still would be far more deaths from it just because a higher percentage of people would get it.
Even with precautions, we’ve seen the results: 200,000+ dead in the US alone, in just 9 months. And it isn’t over yet.
When it comes to infectious diseases, I’ll listen to the scientists, epidemiologists etc., not hang glider pilots or politicians.

This is the worst thread ever.October 8, 2020 at 8:49 AM #10365
And another 13,000 dead. I keep hearing internet trolls claim that the deaths totals are exaggerated. Actually, they are under-reported. If you look at year-over-year respiratory deaths there is a significant excess this year that interestingly, tracks with the locations of heavy Covid-19 infections. And the current administration has taken the counting away from the CDC (You know, doctors and scientists) and given it to the Department of Homeland Security (You know, spies and police.) That makes so much sense.
Mitch is an excellent hang glider pilot. Not so much a scientist or doctor. I’ll listen to the scientists and doctors, thank you very much. Remember, there’s a saying: “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” Or making up stuff, or … For medical information I never, ever, trust the internet except specific, scientifically validated web-sites. CDC, WebMD, etc. Not a random comedian or web troll.
Oh, and by the way, arguing that you have a right to expose others to a deadly disease by not wearing a mask in public? What does that say about your values? My right to be unencumbered by a mask overrides your right to live. How selfish is that? Even if the numbers were lower than reported (which they aren’t.)
I’m out of this thread.

Conspiracy theories?? Really guys?
Conspiracy theories are the lowest form of intellectual enterprise. Suggesting that our government and institutions are either incompetent or have malicious intent spits on the millions of people who are working their hardest to keep us safe.
If you are not exuding an atmosphere of fear and anxiety to everyone and everything around you at all times because of this invisible monster thing, you are not with the program. You are what is called a narcissistic, naïve, bad person.
You think you’re smarter than the experts? Shame on you. Experts have something called science, and you don’t, so argument destroyed, loser.
Experts have never been wrong, ever. Asbestos is a great insulator. Smoking promotes health. Lead in fuel is safe. Mercury cures syphilis. See? Science.
And the masks? Those have been a complete and total success and are super duper effective. They totally don’t give off this vibe of living in a nightmare dystopia, at all.
Government would never lie to you. They are not at all predatory and are here to help you. Stop resisting. They have your best interests in mind.
If you even so much possess a molecule of doubt in our government, let me promptly get rid of it by informing you how much government has improved our hygiene.
Think of all the cavities that have been prevented by putting fluoride in the water. The government cares so much about you they put chemicals in the water just for your dental hygiene. How kind. I love being medicated without my consent.
Tap water is also very healthy and good for you, and is totally not above or on the border of the US EPA’s max contaminant level in the majority of US cities. It has all the electrolytes the body needs. The birth control and beta blockers are just a bonus.
Too much testosterone in the population and people get angry at stupid things, like blatant institutional malevolence or psychopathic policies that would surprise even Orwell, and we can’t have that. Consequences for malfeasance and treason are irresponsible.
Without politicians and experts, who would keep us clean from all the bad things? Without their guidance people might start doing crazy things like drinking raw milk or eating raw eggs like their ancestors did. That is gross!
And think about how much cleaner our newborn baby boys are now that we have expert ancient abrahamic advice. Everyone knows the best way to greet an innocent infant to this world is with some good ol’ genital cutting. I’m sure that won’t leave any long lasting mental trauma on the population.
The notion that there is very straight and satanic cabal ruling America and the world is absurd, and quite frankly deplorable.
The sooner you online trolls stop peddling this nonsense, the easier the thought police will be when in 2024 they find your old forum posts and force upload your consciousness to cyberhell for wrong think.October 11, 2020 at 6:55 AM #10394Dan DeWeeseGeneral MemberCSS Instructor
