    A lot of the house and safety regulations don't make sense locally.



    Hundreds of people are able to gather without much Social distancing or without Masks to shop at a winners or home depot or random stores near me.



    However if 6 people Gather in 3  to 4 cars in a parking lot and remain social distanced.. 10 cop cars show up and give everyone 750 dollar fines lol



    I would say they need to relax the rules on Gatherings because first of all people are breaking the rules left right and Center anyways as frankly it makes no sense.


    This seems awfully convenient doesn't it? What a cash grab.

    This is bad news:


    He experienced a severe reaction to Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine candidate. He’s still a believer




    Yeah, no thanks. I read something on Twitter about there literally being more of a chance of experiencing a negative symptom from a vaccine than actually getting COVID-19 and that the person would let nature decide. Makes sense to me.

    I don't even love Nolan's movies, and I agree on the above @excel1


    This trailer appeals only to hardcore NOnlyFans, at this point.  It's too pseudo-science-y for your average paranoid freedom-loving mask denier...and ironically, that's the audience they'll need most, right now...if it still gets released this summer...or this year, at all.  Either way, my bet is that this will not be one of Nolan's highest-grossing movies. 

    "Mask denier". Lol, that's a new one.

    re: Mask wearing and bubbles.


    Be careful of confirmation bias.  When I've been going out to stores locally I see casually upwards of 80 percent of people wearing masks.  Now I'm in California so for several reasons our mask wearing usage might be up.


    And this isn't just ancedotal evidence either.  There are various surveys that mask wearing is WAAAAAAY up in the US.  


    Now of course, the wording of the survey is tricky and doesn't devote to whether or not folks usually/always wear a mask when they go out.  But while it might be my own confirmation bias speaking, I wouldn't use the screenshots of folks at a part or a beach be that indicative of how many folks are wearing masks then they go to shopping centers or other indoor places.


    You're right. It's completely anecdotal. As Lordmandeep pointed out, I live in BC where people have been able to go out and do lots of things and the curve has stayed the same. When I go shopping where I live, I maybe see a small handful of people wearing masks. No employees wear masks. They do wear gloves though. 


    It really does vary depending on where you are.

    Issue is BC had tens of thousands of people at beaches 1-2 weeks ago and no jump in cases but community spread in BC is non existent. 


    Ontario and Quebec have been getting 100's of cases but as i said we have seen deaths mostly in old age homes so younger people feel its not warranted to stay locked up at home. 

    Makes sense. Have to take into account the difference in the activity of the virus in each province. 


    On the whole though, it seems like most people want to simply let nature decide. I'm not saying whether that's the right or wrong mindset. It's just the sense I get from folks in my circles and on social media.

    Today I saw some people doing bicycle alone in not a not crowded at all section of a bike path with masks, some inside there cars (both a bit over the top that I personally do not do).


    But in a sense if the goal of the activity is just to take sun in a park, maybe wearing a mask destroy the point in the first place, while maybe we would see a lot more mask where taking air isn't the point of the activity (say in an crowded outside market).

    I think you nailed it. For instance, I would wear a mask in a movie theatre. Absolutely.

    Canada is a funny mix of Europe and America.


    There is a greater trust in govt to do things for the greater good "Public health care" but we dont really get strict laws and really value individual rights at sometimes the expense of the community like America.



    I think the mass park gatherings are just plan stupid ...


    You can meet friends and family with social distancing. 

    I would like to know if the powers that be will be able to trace possible future cases (and, God forbid, deaths) to this gathering. On the flip (bright) side, it would be nice to know that zero cases resulted.


    Basically, you hope that everyone who decided to congregate there in such close proximity all calculated the risk and made sure they weren't sick and hadn't had any signs or symptoms for a long time prior.

    Lockdown has pretty much gone out the window here in Toronto


    It was expected... many parts of Canada are frozen from Novemeber to late April, so the idea people will lockdown in the summer is a non starter. 




    Yeah, that photo is all over my Twitter timeline.


    Whether you agree with it or not, it's clear human nature is prevailing.

  9. The virus definitely isn't a hoax. That's prepostrous. 


    I do however believe some folks are a little too paranoid about it. Emphasis on the word some, though, because almost everyone in my community at least are rarin' to get out. Doesn't seem to be much reluctance around these parts. What about you guys and your communities? What's the vibe in terms of re-opening and ending the lockdown?


    @TwoMisfits I imagine the kids are bouncing off the walls!

  10. I agree with the sentiment about it just being nice to have new trailers. My passion for movies has never been more clear than during this lockdown during which I've been starving for news, trailers, numbers; anything and everything movie related.


    If cinemas are open and this does indeed release on July 17, it's' going to be a great day!

    Read the WHO situational report from Jan and then tell me the WHO did not give plenty of warning of what was coming...




    It gets old people blaming everyone but themselves and their governments for what has happened.


    Anyone with half a brain that kept up with the expects knew how bad this could be.

    That's not even what I'm getting at.


    Like I said, I'm not going to get into it. Shouldn't have even said anything in the first place so my bad.
