    I'll bet Kirby Smart doesn't want him anywhere near the Georgia football program these days.

    In a Eugene, OR incident from November (for some reason just now coming to light) two morons walk into a cookie store without masks (legally required) specifically to challenge the owner to serve them despite the lack of masks, assault the owner when she tries to get them to leave, video the assault, then flag down the cops to show them the video in an effort to get the cops to arrest the owner. It did not go well for the morons. I'm thinking this could have been posted in the Future Darwin Award Winners thread too.

    Not true.

    He was granted an exemption to play in the Australian Open.
    This exemption had no legal status allowing entry into Australia.

    ........

    But there are questions over public appearances he made at this time.

    If Djokovic went out knowing he had a positive PCR result, it would be a "clear breach" of Serbia's rules, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic told the BBC.

    Border officials are currently investigating whether Djokovic's travel entry form included a false declaration in stating that he had not travelled in the 14 days before arriving in Australia. Social media posts appear to show him in both Serbia and Spain during that fortnight.
    Djokovic doesn't think the rules should apply to him.

    Abul Rizvi is correct.

    I've had 7 PCR tests and 3 rapid test - all use the Qtip. Of the 7 administered by medical personnel, only one was horrible. I actually yelled at the nurse. All the others made me sneeze.
    Even those I did myself, the rapid tests, made me sneeze. It should not be painful. It should go up slowly, and gently rotate against the inside of the nasal cavity. It's more of a tickle than anything else. Next time, you may want to say you had Nurse Ratched last time.....and if she smiles, run.

    Coronavirus loses 90% of its ability to infect us within 20 minutes of becoming airborne – with most of the loss occurring within the first five minutes, the world’s first simulations of how the virus survives in exhaled air suggest.

    The findings re-emphasise the importance of short-range Covid transmission, with physical distancing and mask-wearing likely to be the most effective means of preventing infection. Ventilation, though still worthwhile, is likely to have a lesser impact.

    The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, suggested that as the viral particles leave the relatively moist and carbon dioxide-rich conditions of the lungs, they rapidly lose water and dry out, while the transition to lower levels of carbon dioxide is associated with a rapid increase in pH. Both of these factors disrupt the virus’s ability to infect human cells, but the speed at which the particles dry out varies according to the relative humidity of the surrounding air.

    And separately, I hope the Australian Minister of Immigration cancels the visa.
    Tennis star Novak Djoković claims that he tested positive for the coronavirus on Dec. 16. But the digital test result suggests otherwise. This and a suspected false statement could create new visa problems for the athlete in Australia.

    Conservative Activist Dies of COVID Complications After Attending Anti-Vax ‘Symposium’ (yahoo.com)

    A well-known conservative activist in Arlington, Texas, who peddled COVID-19 vaccine misinformation has died of complications caused by the virus—just a few weeks after attending a “symposium” against the shots.

    2 friends and I had to deal with a total jackass for June, July and August. Unquestionably a sociopath. I saw a face I didn't recognize (but thought I did) a few days ago in the news. Yes I admit to being completely uninterested in tennis. "Wtf, what is Dave doing in the news?" Oh - it's someone famous.

    Same sneaky look in the eyes. You don't reach my age and be around the blocks I've travelled and not acquire more than a few "street smarts".

    Go with the medicine/ethics argument and they send him home. Go with the business of business (enhancing the tournament) and he stays.

    I think the 'smart' move here is to rest his visa on whether he lied about having it and then knowingly exposed others to it.
