    For example, the US/Mexico World Cup Qualifier (soccer) was just announced to be in Cincinnati. Without hesitation I booked a hotel for 4 nights. But there is also the realization that it's a 50/50 shot as to whether sports will be "normal" come November. I'm peeved that I did everything with this right, but I am being denied opportunities because of a special kind of stupid.
    You touch upon a larger issue.

    I wasn't that upset in the first year of the pandemic over the stuff I missed out on, other than normal human emotion of missing things. After all, it's nature. We had no control. No different than having your life turn sideways if a natural disaster hit your area.

    But now, at this time of the pandemic, we do have absolute control over our destiny, and can overcome nature. I repeat that again. We turned the tables. We have the control. But absolute morons want to concede that control and give it back to nature. Why? That's why I have such contempt towards the unvaccinated. For once, humans can control nature, and you're ****ing it away.

          I may be seeing thing wrong, but I see companies trying to open back up to vaccinated. Countries as well- Canada is opening back up to vaccinated, and I expect Europe will be doing the same.

          So all of the "restrictions" are just as voluntary as not taking the vaccine.

            At the rate we're going, I fear mandatory restrictions will be back in place. And international travel is still severely hampered.

            And as far as Europe is concerned, the Netherlands just started to cancel a bunch of large public festivals, putting the much anticipated Dutch GP in jeopardy.

                You gotta figure Florida is the prime breeding ground for a virus like this.

                Half their population old and probably not in the best of health, and a bunch of the rest poorer black and brown people.

                      It's like that final scene from Twelve Monkeys where they show the airlines all spreading the virus out continent to continent.

                      We could actually wipe humanity out if we did with anthrax what the Dumpies are doing with COVID.

                        This is a good point. Maybe one which every space-faring species eventually faces. Insofar as you eliminate other predators you develop the instincts that will cause you to destroy yourselves. Then, insofar as you come to control your environment you develop the technology that will allow you to destroy yourselves.

                        The only way out of that box is to engineer the instincts out now that you don't need them anymore. So you create civilization. Then it's a race between how quickly you civilize and how quickly you technologize. If civilization wins the stars are yours. If technology wins you leave a smoking crater.

                        It comes down to kindness / compassion / inclusion vs fear / greed / tribalism. But the latter enjoy all the advantages of violence so the former have to be very, very careful.

                        Fighting the Nazis is somewhat analogous. How do you deal with the intolerant when you are tolerant, and the vicious when you are gentle?

                        • It's not that you develop the instincts. It's that the instincts you biologically have to discern such dangers to you atrophy.

                          Life gets too comfortable, too easy, you get lazy, you are no longer exposed to danger and predators every day, and so your instincts that warn you of such, your basic survival instincts and skills, just wither away, generation after generation, until they no longer exist.

                          I've said it before, our forebears went from one side of this continent to the other with nothing but the stars to guide them. Now we can't find milk in the supermarket.
