  1. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Sigh... Seat belts do fail. In fact, at a much larger rate than you could guess (with 3 million failures and 40 thousands deaths cited online). No, we do not recall every single one of them. If this...
  2. Re: [Amendment] Patronus: The Third Class

    "Don't be a wuss" is also a well understood expression. Doesn't mean we get to use such expression as we wish. Thankfully, people are not left to what you decide to give them.

  5. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Nope. Many countries do allow travelers with a negative PCR test taken within a few days of travel.




    See above. In Israel's case, they not only require vaccination but PCR test as well. In...

    It's people who travel between countries that bring new variants. There is no vaccinated/unvaccinated distinction. Unvaccinated are not some group incapable of transmitting new variants to other...

    Only a small number of Citizens participate in voting on proposals. This proposal would diminish that. I don't see any point in having such a class and I believe it would diminish activity on the...
  9. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Having only a few cases with Omicron in Israel is not a valid data point. Any sensible statistician would simply ignore such data. All could be vaccinated or all could be unvaccinated. We're talking...
  10. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    I don't see a reasoning, only a description. You are also recipient of not just one, or two, but three awards that utilize 6 separate levels without the need to complicate it.
  11. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Yet, you still commented on the Texan situation, claiming that they had an option to go to a different one, when they didn't, as the mandate covered all Texan universities. You commented on it then...
  12. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    You did though, per your comment. This really isn't that complex.




    You didn't. I asked you. You made the distinction between rights you can live without and rights you can't live without. So...
  13. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    It is not in the sense you use it. Case in point: Moderator's Mace, Scribe's Quill, and the likes. Absolutely no need to divide each level into two separate levels. Just have six different levels.
  14. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    What's the point of having 3 different levels with 2 levels in each level?
  15. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    Ideally it should be 1/3/7/15/31 though nobody would get the last one in that case.

    3 - Major House
    7 - Great House
    15 - Kingdom
    31 - Empire

  16. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Exceptions do not set the rule.




    Not in the context you were commenting in, nope. You cared about having options in Texas, and then pufff, you didn't. Yes, the hypocrisy of your arguments...

    Sigh... You know I will be tedious about this and not let it fly as you wish, so why bother?

    You want me to ignore 75% of what you said and...
  18. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    Maybe 1/3/10/15/30 make more sense? Better to have incremental stages with more with each phase. Last one seemed a small jump while we do have imb39 with 30 patronizations.
  19. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    You didn't really say that, but sure. Texas doesn't just require vaccination for higher education. In fact, the vaccination requirement for lower levels is much higher. Did you not even try to Google...
  20. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    You kinda just did care a post ago. People these days abandon their arguments so damn fast... Telling a Texan that they can go to a university outside of Texas if they don't want to get vaccinated is...
  21. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Again, not an option for Texas. How were trenches outside of Austin? Did Heathen Hammer share his meals with you?
  22. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    You don't really get to pick universities like you pick socks in the morning. One those state universities I pointed at even uses a state senate bill to base a vaccine requirement on which included...
  23. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    A second it was about me not reading my own links and how I don't understand the difference between something being mandatory and recommendation. Clearly, a second ago, whether it was a university or...

    University of Massachusetts Boston:


    So on and on. These are not recommendations but requirements. The COVID19 vaccines were only recent additions. Your own...

    Nope. I understand why you try to tie your baseless drivel to Nazis though. Many different kinds of vaccines are already requirement for many different things. You can't go to most universities in...

  29. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    It's more like an other comment that is quite divorced from reality as we already do have many different medical procedures that you haven't argued about, let alone rise up against.

  32. Re: [Amendment] Patronus Award

    It doesn't have to be limited to 3 levels, though 3 can do fine I guess, and I think the first level should start with patronization of one Citizen. In itself, it's the start of a house.

    There is no award for patronization? There should definitely be one. Some people take the time to put forward Citizenship application and it would be nice to recognize that.

    Who actually here suggested Rittenhouse was a far-right white supremacist?

    I would oppose such an inverted approach as it jumbles up different criteria into a meaningless pile. Earlier you called 15 years with 1500 posts a very low bar and here you are suggesting 15 years...

    I'm confused. Just a post earlier you called 15 years with 1500 posts a very low bar. Now you're arguing that 15 years with no post count requirement is a good bar to clear. What am I missing?
