Pink Floyd. Them and AC/DC are probably the only two bands ever that you can’t ever reach maximum volume. The louder the better.

Anyone training in the gym without a mask ?
I live in NC. My gym opened July 6th under a loophole that if someone is prescribed exercise by a dr then they need to go to the gym. Of course any gym that opens under this guideline can’t ask what your medical condition is. And no we are not wearing masks while working out but are cleaning the equipment and social distancing.

What do you guys think of those under the desk pedals for increasing NEAT for those of us city dwellers who don’t get all the walking from our day jobs like we used to? I was probably walking 5-6 mi a day pre-pandemic and now I’m getting half of that if I’m lucky and making a serious effort. I always thought these things were bs but that was when other options were so readily available. Now it seems they may have a use?

haven't been following this thread very closely and if someone already mentioned this i apologize...walmart and kroger stores nationwide will begin requiring masks starting next week.
As of July 6th, The governor here in Maine made it mandatory for all businesses to adhere to and enforce the wearing of masks. Our overall compliance was been relatively high from the early stages, and I can’t think of a major retailer that wasn’t already on board. So yeah, now it’s officially mandatory regardless..

The tricky thing is that she expects these businesses to be responsible for enforcing this, which we know can be much easier said than done with some people. It’s a lot to expect from these businesses and their associates. My girlfriend works at the biggest supermarket chain in the state, right in my hometown which has essentially zero crime.

It’s quite interesting that store management has made it clear that while the masks are mandatory, they do not want anyone to enforce it if they have a defiant customer. They are afraid for the welfare of their employees if someone were to get aggressive or even open fire. So what’s next, do we place cops at the door? That would open another can of worms, not to mention an increased need for police officers. We all know that’s not in any immediate plans.

grab that cash with both hands and make a stash....words of wisdom from the floyd
At first I thought you were quoting George Floyd. I was picturing a book of quotes by George Floyd circulating around. I’m sure it won’t be too long before that happen! There must be plenty of content form his multiple conviction records alone!

For some reason i thought you were talking about Floyd Mayweather 😂
So i am also guilty
never really enjoyed his style of no risk, defensive boxing, but admire how well he was able to do it....floyd is a smart guy, some of the stuff he says is actually quotable...but he aint no PINK FLOYD!!!!

If we are mixing sports and Corona virus... did anyone see video of Dr. Fauci throwing out the first pitch? Oooofa. Sparked a lot of Internet jokes about his "accuracy".

One of my gyms finally reopened and it feels amazing to be back at it. Hopefully it stays open.

i wouldn't get my hopes up.
There hasn't been too many people using it in the early mornings - just the wrecking crew. Also getting an antibody test tomorrow and if that comes positive I'll return to commuting to my Mecca. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed either way.

if you get the 1st gen test i've heard there is discomfort involved...one of my wifes friends said they told her it would feel like tickling the brain, but she said it was worse than that---but then again she is a drama queen.

Yeah, I saw a news report today (I don’t have a source) that it’s not expected that gyms will survive through this. Partly because people will have discovered that they don’t need them or wish to go them anymore. While I don’t think that’s entirely true, it’s pretty safe to say we don’t have a timeline for anything these days, and life will never be the same as it was in 2019.

Ah that’s the PCR test which is testing for an active infection. I’m getting the antibody test which is just a blood test to test for past [presumably asymptomatic/mild symptoms] infections. My friend got a 2nd gen PCR test at CVS and said it was entirely painless though.

My brain can’t even wrap itself around what is happening there. I’m literally incapable of understanding it.
Which part? I’m pretty far removed from the news, so I’ve been getting most of it through this thread lol.

I think so 🤣

Luckily, I think the majority of people share the same sentiment. 100% of people I have had conversations with about it in my personal and professional life feel likewise, and aren’t buying into the bullshyt. Even random patients at work bring it up in conversation and can’t believe the hypocrisy of it all. In the end, I remain hopeful that our country won’t succumb to these brainwashed lunatics and the good will prevail.

On another note, I wonder how long it will take for Trump to get blamed for the Sahara dust storm?
My gym closed for a good reason

Just the ongoing over the top riots/protests, vandalism, and targeting police etc. On a good note, I see that “undercover“ federal agents are using tear gas to remove rioters from the streets. They should feel lucky it’s only tear gas IMO.

I realize the right to peacefully protest is part of our constitution, but everything the “peaceful” protests encourage and lead up to is surely nothing anyone would consider to be peaceful. What’s worse is the underlying message remains bogus, and they are promoting a way of life that nobody would want.

Closed initially or opened back up and had to re-close?

The post of mine you quoted was in reference to BLM/turn police into the enemy protestors, not the China virus. Unless of course your gym closed down due to anti-mask protestors. 😬

Yeahhhh I’m not wearing a mask at all...Not even to walk in,...It’s empty when I go 8-10pm...(Mask is ‘recommended’)
DC area has no masks mandate by law? Surprising if so since it is the center of bureaucracy.

a cat has been the first pet to catch it in the uk (couple of days ago). Hasn’t died but the first recorded case of an animal getting it here apparently.

on another note the press here is displaying the USA as pretty fucked still from covid. Over 1,000 death daily etc (for reference we are either below 100 or between 100 and 150). Gov here **** scared of the Spanish situation though (big increases there - talk of second wave etc)

Decided to go to the beach today! EVERYONE WAS AT THE BEACH.... There were NO parking and huge crowds with no masks. After 7 different beaches with no luck, we just went home. And the casinos are open!!!!! Why can’t the gyms be open, too?!?
