Although this sounds pretty hard, it doesn't really comport to what former SEAL Jocko Willink has said on various podcasts. He actually went into SEAL training being able to do most of that fitness test and found it woefully inadequate. IIRC, he said training has involved hundreds of pullups, thousands of pushups and situps, 20 mile runs, etc.

PSA: The West Wing has been streaming on Netflix for a while now. It features an excellent ensemble case anchored by Martin Sheen, and Aaron Sorkin's dialog is so smart and snappy. Very entertaining, and also a nice reminder of how a "normal" administration is supposed to operate.

The first is certainly happening and is very significantly reduced by wearing a mask. The second would come straight out of the air without the droplets, this is what the "report" or whatever you want to call it is claiming, which masking might reduce, but less effectively.
Are you guys joking? We know this in the EU since March - why you think full face masks are MANDATORY here?

Shrill Liberal: The sky is falling!
"However, the health agency said the evidence for the virus being airborne was not convincing, according to the NYT. "
Wrong again, as usual.

Including blowing up the daily infection counters, you managed to get in 2 days, what Germany took 5 months to get Bravo I say

What's the point in merging servers? With all the cross-server technology, you always were playing with people from other servers, anyway.

I said I'd like to learn one, I'm not sure it is practical at this point. My brain is surely more set in its ways now than it was forty years ago.

Guess I'll learn how to play guitar or speak German.

Allow me to completely destroy you both
Because I have a memory that works. (Well, and that was the only reason I bought it, I wanted to build space platforms ,p)
And I liked Factorio well enough... just wished it had become more than just a soulless sandbox with irrelevant enemies.
Btw. I missed they canned his back in 2018 ... Well, I didn't play unmodded Factorio since.. ever. So I wouldn't know.. currently only playing it with Krastorio 2
eRe4s3r wrote on Jul 3, 2020, 21:26:Wow, really? I think Factorio is fantastic building game. I have a couple of thousand hours in it. Didn't even realize the campaign was supposed to be anything but a teaching tool. Definitely didn't know anything about a shipyard and ship to space. Are you sure you aren't confusing games?
You know, I was hyped for this game.. a year ago. Now I don't care anymore... so much happened since then, not a game I even want to play currently (same for Factorio, which I am actually even a bit salty about after they just flat out shit-canned the PROMISED campaign and entire POINT of the game (Orbital platform, building a space shipyard and ship to get from the planet).
Anyway, I am glad building games like this make at least 1m sales.. now please someone make a proper one, a mix of Diablo, Factorio and Satisfactory....... mhhhhh
Cutter wrote on Jul 3, 2020, 20:26:Is he a top ten QB? No. Is he better than 10-15 of the starting QBs in the league? Possibly. He isn't playing because the owners thought hiring him after the kneeling situation would be bad for their bottom lines. His ability to play or not, was not much of a factor in their decisions.
Do you even watch football? Kapernick sucks. Which is why he isn't playing. Him not playing because he's black - and I've never understood that because I always thought the guy was Arab - is like saying the reason Tim Tebow isn't playing is because he's an evangelical xtian.
