Random question for everyone: do we think the mask thing is going to last the remainder of the year? Talking about weekend trips with my dad in the fall to the sportsbook and he’s convinced that masks being required is a given to last the reminder of the year - I say no.

You are consistent, Just the Facts, maam.

However, that data is a month old and doesn't include numbers since April 29. And the flu has vaccines and antiviral treatments, which cannot yet be considered for Covid-19. I wonder what these numbers will look like in a year, ole Clay may end up being correct.
I'm not arguing the validity of the CDC report, only that it doesn't say what Clay is claiming it says. So many people are quick to grab the first thing they think supports their position and run with it. I'm just bothering to see if it really says that. It doesn't.

It's like citing CDC deaths as evidence that far fewer have died than claimed. Folks grab the number they like from a tweet and run with it. If you look at the CDC's excess deaths due to all causes, there are anywhere from 74284 (based on official excess definition) to 88471 (based on deaths above average) excess deaths through the first week of May. That sounds very close to the Johns Hopkins official death toll on May 9th of 79202. Which means the deaths are real, and most likely due to the virus. You can argue the cause, but the data is what it is. It is also interesting that the CDC showed excess deaths for causes not related to COVID, yet there really wasn't anything else going on. Suggests that <gasp!> COVID deaths may have actually been under-reported.

Come on man. Really? NO ONE?

Roger Maris did it when dudes maybe lifted weights an hour a day.

Sosa and McGwire were fun to watch but, Mcgwire was a goon.

Bonds had a great swinging motion. But at that point it had lost its luster. Juiced balls and bats, steroids...guys throwing harder than ever. Ball flew further.

Total bull ****. Imagine if Ted Williams had juiced.
Don't forget Tony Gwynn here. If he had type of protection hitting behind him , he may have been the first .400 hitter since Ted Williams. Unfortunately he didn't and they did not have to pitch too him. Maris on the other hand had too great advantages. Number one Yankee stadium then had a very short right field porch and a long fly ball in many stadiums for an out was a home run in Yankee stadium. Then as Maris was at bat you looked at the on deck circle and there stood Mickey Mantle. They had to go at Maris, for if you walked him then that was bad news with Mantle coming to bat.

I don’t know about required, but I think masks will be encouraged for a while. If fans are allowed, I think you will see masks at football games even if not required.

Honestly, your probably more likely to die from this than covid
I find it EXTREMELY unlikely that hand sanitizer explodes in a car unless someone puts a match to it. I live in Phoenix, AZ. I've had hand sanitizer in my car for years. It hasn't exploded in my car yet, and we see temperatures of 115-118 degrees almost every year here. I don't leave it out in direct sunlight though. That would be stupid.

Seems like a "gotcha" headline that shows whether the person actually read the article or not.

At the very end,

"For it to spontaneously combust with no other, external ignition source other than self-heating alone, you’d have to reach over 700 degrees F!”

To recap: Yes, hand sanitizer can explode in a hot car — if it’s as hot as a commercial pizza oven. Otherwise, it’s safe to be sanitary this summer, drivers. Godspeed!"
