The back and forth on this forum between the "it's over, COVID is done" vs. "humanity is certain to die out due to COVID-19" is nauseating (especially when in actuality, that's likely neither sides real opinion).
So....let's make this real. Right now there are 100K deaths in the US.
For all the people who are on side 1, pledge to give $1K to coronavirus victims campaigns if the final total of deaths is greater than 350K.
For all those on side 2,  pledge to give $1K to coronavirus victims campaigns if the final total of deaths is less than 200K.

What about those that say that we would have hit 350,000 deaths either way? Or those that say 350,000 deaths is an acceptable cost for avoiding a shut down and doing business as usual?

This thread:



*I post this gif with a heavy heart, knowing it may end up with the same fate as Chaim, who was stolen from me and has since been overworked, underpaid and abused.

How many DDFers does it take to move a goalpost?

This is uneven.

Side 1 hits 350k RL and they must pay out
Side 2 can just tell you to keep waiting for the second wave, or COVID-22 RL

How do you definitively decide side 2 lost?

Just one should do the trick.

101.
1 DDFer to move the goalpost.
100 DDFers to decide whether or not the goalpost actually moved.

How about excess deaths over the average?
Over what time period?

I think we need to split the Corona board into two separate boards. One for all the threads that are about reopening and shuls, and the other for all the civil discourse.

And the thread about reopening and shuls should be hidden from members with fewer than 500 posts, and also hidden from members with more than 500 posts.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

You forgot the DDFrs who will decide if it should move, when it should move, how it should move

And then
If it was moved correctly, if it was correct to move and was ot at the right time.

Maybe they should all be moved to just shmuz. Not like these conversations are setting polices

  • Location: As always, silence is NOT an admission of agreement on DDF. It just means that people lack the stamina to keep on arguing with made up "facts", illogical arguments, deceiving statements, nasty and degrading comments, and fuzzy math. - @yelped
