Predict the FINAL NUMBER of confirmed Coronavirus cases/deaths in the U.S. (Predictions ONLY)

You forgot providing for his family and raising his kids in a good neighborhood.
I'm sure hes a good guy when sober and probably a good dad. Was only responding to him calling me a narcissist constantly. If I am a narcissist then he is as well was my point.

Onto Railbird. This is a private enterprise this forum. If it chooses to allow someone to say they hope minorities die of covid because it helps someone get elected and they feel that is fine so be it. I dont have to read it or respond to it. If someone wants to call people fags and let the N word fly and this site feels again that is something worthwhile to allow. I have no say in the matter.

I have a choice whether I'd like to support that company by reading, posting and contributing to the growth of said company. However I do feel its flawed to make that individual the face of the site. Giving that person the spotlight and giving them freeroll opportunities in highlighted contests etc.

If a site has no growth for 10 years and continues to lose posters, advertisers and things that allow a revenue stream maybe it'd be in their best interest to eliminate what's causing such things. Forums are far from dead, they're thriving. When reddit sports betting forum has a record increase in threads in a football season and ras slack gains 3k people in 5 months you can't tell me something is a miss here. The score chat app has 1000s of people chiming in every game by the second for gods sake.

I really miss when this was a place where you could learn a thing or two from someone about capping and +ev plays were the norm and there was a place for congratulations and questions about games and answers given. I keep stopping in to see if that's the case again. Someone alert me when that takes place again.

Been in the SlackChat a little. My impressions are that it sucks.
Sure it is cool that it is real time but not any more real time than the forum. You can check it once per week just like the forum.
The only reason it is mor popular is that it has more topics of discussion.
Except for the fact that Ed is releasing plays in there and it is clever for that.

    You've got about 10 guys in there and as you would expect they are posting about COVID 19 and Trump. Their opinions are a little more high brow but basically the same stuff.
    Everything goes away after a week.
    You've got some out of the cool crowd that don't get responded to
    Ed is trying to get people to post picks with write ups but the cool kids don't post picks.

number 21 oldsandbag seems to be on pace for spot on numbers.....why is he in last and listed as 'uni'

he's going to nail the death count.....probably high on infections but at 50k a day never ending number it might get close

that's not going to happen, we're at 31 million infected right now, the true number is prob 125-150 million, even now at 50K/day the true number would be at least 250K/day, with or without the vaccine the pandemic would burn itself out, just like the spanish flu did.

well the contest doesnt end until fauci says it's over so it might go 5 more years......oldsand says 1.2 dead and we are already at 550k.....i say he nails that.....100million is a stretch but he gets half that i'm sure.....i'd put him as the fav but bob has him listed as 'uni' and i dont know what that means so maybe he's eliminated for some reasom

The contest ends when the WHO says COVID-19 is no longer a global pandemic. Fauci can say all he wants but it's irrelevant for contest grading purposes.

fauci is the who.....you can believe that cap

don't know how bob figures sandbaggers totals are unlikely....this thing is 5-10yrs from being considered no longer a threat or whatever...theyre still wearing 2mask here in cali..

they set off fireworks in ontario over the wkend celebrating going from purple tier to red....which means inside dining at 15pct capacity.....they fvcking celebrated that with fireworks

still 3 more colors to get thru before being all open no restrictions.....years away

i demand comp bob remove unl from sand bagger and put him in the top 3......theres 60k on average ever day testing positive....thats 1m per month....12m per year for a virus that wont be called off by fauci for 5yrs.....that alone is 60m so add the 30m were at and thats only 10m short.....death rate of 1.2 is as spot on as you can get..

sandbagger nailed this mthrfvkr a mile away.....he's being denied of his glory because of some problem cb has with him or the virus

we're at a norm right now, it will be the norm for a lifetime.....50k infected a day and 500 dead......that's 1.5m a month and 15k dead....18m a year and 180k dead

the 'who' wont call call off the dogs for at least 5yrs.....there are still people wearing 2 masks here in cali....i work at a high school and i see kids on my way home a mile from school walking by themselves still wearing a mask....i want to pull over and ask them what is it that keeps a 15yr old kid wearing a mask outside alone...

anyway, all that to remind you that oldsandbagger has this in the bag and computer dipshit still has him at unlikely...

Unfortunately I think you may be right. There will be flare ups everywhere.

Except we wont have 50K/day cases or 500 deaths...other than that he's spot on. Today we will have about 30K cases, although sunday is the lowest day of the week. Testing of children and college students will end in a few weeks, cases will crash hard at that point.
 
The death numbers that come out are not indicitive of current situations either, FL had about 30 today listed, but 4 of them were from last july and Aug, others from early this year, only 4 were from the last 10 days.

4/29 - 1 4/27 - removed 1 4/26 - 1 4/23 - 1 4/22 - 1 4/21 - 1 4/17 - 2 4/16 - 1 4/15 - 1 4/14 - 3 4/13 - 1 4/12 - 2 4/10 - 2 4/8 - 3 4/7 - 1 4/5 - 1 3/22 - 1 3/19 - 1 3/5 - 1 1/31 - 1 1/13 - 1 12/16 - removed 1 8/23 - 2 8/22 - 1 7/18 - 1
