Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: The End of Meat
« on: Today at 05:39:15 PM »
It's an interesting topic that I've thought a lot about. I'm honestly not particularly concerned about the ethical side of the argument (outside of egregious treatment), but the environmental impact is important. I love meat too much to give it up, but my family is careful with portions. While we have meat most nights, sometimes it's just a little sausage mixed in a pasta or rice dish. Usually we'll have one or two meatless meals during the week and almost all of our purchased meat is from local suppliers. We have a little of everything: poultry, fish, beef, pork, and chicken.

I could probably give it all up, but I'd really struggle for awhile without chicken. Thankfully I love, love, love veggies.

People should keep in mind that part of the reasons why smaller towns/cities haven't been affected as badly is because there's been such a concerted effort to reduce even in-province travel. The more relaxed things get, the more likely people are to go to their cottages and such, the more likely things will spread outside of the problem areas.

As a lot of people smarter than me have said, if strict containment measures work then you'll get people questioning if they were necessary because they won't see the damage that was avoided.

You're right on here. I'm up in Northwestern Ontario where we've not been hit hard with the virus at all. Despite the relative feeling of complacency (i.e. knowing there's a very low public risk here at the moment) people here have been surprisingly vigilant with following the guidelines and rules.

There is a general sense of anxiety though as we're basically waiting for the shoe to drop.

Our hospital emergency department usually runs at 115% capacity but has been running at less than 60%. It's starting to climb up into the 80% range now.

In our city of 110,000 (maybe 150,000 in the district?), we've had only 81 confirmed cases. There are only 2 active cases, with one deceased and the rest resolved.

What's that got to do with the price of eggs?

More importantly: how am I supposed to feel about this?

I made the mistake of showing Phantom Menace to my partner.  She had not seen any Star Wars and decided she wanted to watch them 1 through 9.  We may have hit our limit....man watching it again for the first time in a few years it is a really bad movie.

Ya, we watched all of the movies with our son last month. It was so bad. I feel bad for the actors.

I'm not defending Hayden Christensen's awful performance, but in fairness, they even managed to make Samuel Jackson terrible.

Wait, LK said he's sorry. So, it's all good now. Welcome back!

He'll make sure his disgusting comments stay private for now on.

I'm surprised, actually. I didn't realize that many teams were carrying that dead weight. I've always been annoyed by that carry-over, but it really doesn't look bad in comparison.

It's fun watching Yuskkevich highlights. He was such a great, well-rounded player, but half of the highlights are clearly penalties. He's pinning guys to the boards for five seconds 20 feet away from the puck.

I remember loving Berezin when I was very little, but his time with the Leafs came just before I really started paying attention to the team. Looking up his stats again now and he had a pretty strange career. Had a career year in his 3rd season in the NHL at the age of 26 with 37 goals and 59 points (guessing Sundin had a lot to do with that).

I could be way off but I'm not sure that tracks. Sundin mainly played with Thomas that year and, if memory serves, either Johnson or Modin. Berezin was on Korolev's line for most of his ES time. 

Berezin wasn't really the sort of guy who fed off his centre anyway. He was more the "I'm going to try and deke around all 6 guys" sort of scorer.

Yep. He was so fun to watch, but he was mostly a lone wolf in the scoring department.

I'm all for destroying someone in NHL20, but it has to be on Xbox. I'll have to renew my gamepass to get Rocket League again.

I'm BullfrogJG.

So how's everyone doing? I'm starting to go a bit stir crazy and starting to feel the effects of social distancing.

I just want to go to the Circle K and buy an f'ing chocolate bar. I know it's still allowed, but I'm obviously avoiding frivolous trips like that.

I'm not sure "mild, flu-like symptoms" makes an ideal bio-weapon.
