Thread: Las Vegas casino temporary closures

  1. #1
    Wynn closing for at least two weeks. MGM properties closing until further notice.

  2. #2
    Stupid mob mentality decision.

    You knew this was coming. Some people still don’t get it.

    COVID-19 is just a “Super Flu” but it’s is highly contagious and the elderly are at risk.

    The mortality rate for COVID-19 is almost 20% for the 80+ group.

    I am at risk due to my age group.

    Mickey Crimm is at HIGHER risk due to his age group and the fact he had a heart attack recently.

    In Italy, the plan is to let those who are 80+ & really sick die.

    Here are the facts: We just don’t have enough doctors, hospitals, ICU beds to treat COVID-19 if it became a full blown epidemic.

    Here is one source of current COVID-19 mortality rates by age group:

    Vox is partisan garbage, but here is a neutral site which breaks down the difference between coronavirus and other diseases we've dealt with recently:

    https://www.healthline.com/health-ne...)-flu-pandemic

    Cliffs:

    - Can't compare with 1918 Spanish Flu because medicine was in the dark ages in those days, even though it was only 102 years ago

    - Can't compare with the 2009 Swine Flu because that had a 0.02% death rate, and most of those deaths were those who were already vulnerable. The average person had almost zero point zero chance of dying from it.

    - Can't compare with 2003-04 SARS because that could not spread easily. It had a much higher death rate once you got it, but it had just about zero chance of spreading rapidly because symptoms were severe and quick, thus people who had it could be identified and isolated.

    - Can't compare with 2014-2016 Ebola because, like SARS, it wasn't easily spreadable. Most of this was spread through body fluids, and it also had very severe and quick symptons. Again, these people were not walking around in society spreading it. Like SARS, it had a very high death rate, but again, not many people were likely to get it.

    - Can't compare with the typical seasonal flu because that flu has a death rate of 0.1%, mostly concentrated in the already vulnerable. Again, the average person does not die from it, and even the vast majority of the most vulnerable recover from it.


    COVID-19 is unique combo of a high death rate (though not nearly as high as 2003 SARS/2014 Ebola) and high likelihood of spreading quickly (like the 2009 Swine/H1N1 flu). We have never experienced anything like this before.

    It also seems to have the ability to kill people over 40 who otherwise appear healthy. While this is not typical, it is happening more often than with the seasonal flu.

    The only less-threatening thing about COVID-19 compared to the seasonal flu is that it doesn't kill children (or babies), while the seasonal flu does. However, this actually makes it spread more because children can carry it while being asymptomatic, and then spread it to adults. Children with the seasonal flu are usually kept home and away from most of the population.

    Finally, the politicizing of this needs to stop, and I'm talking both sides.

    This situation would be just as bad right now if Hillary or Bernie had won the 2016 election. This situation would be just as bad if we had socialized healthcare. Blaming Republicans for this is idiotic.

    On the flip side, this is not a "media hoax" or "Democratic exaggeration in order to win the 2020 election". This is a serious threat which must not be dismissed. Too many Republicans have come to believe that this is all a phony manufactured frenzy in order to beat Trump. It's not.

    Vox is very partisan, but the article was very reasonable, not political, and data driven.

    Perhaps you should read something before you dismiss it by implying it is politicized?

    Does that not seem like something you would criticize someone else for doing?

    Outside of this I think you've dropped some pretty good info on both of the sites.

    I've seen posts describing at least a few DT casinos using some social distancing by reducing the number of players at a table and shutting down every other machine.

    Nice post Dan.

    Dan wasn’t criticizing anyone; he simply expressed his views on Vox. He is sharing with me that he doesn’t think Vox is a good source.

    This is a forum for people to talk, share ideas, etc. Not everyone is going to agree with everyone (about Vox article, etc). I asked a question about feedback on FarmVille and some wing nut started a flame war based on his/her warped views about me. The problem is when people cannot tolerate different views.

    People can disagree (but there are limits). Sharing a personal opinion (on Vox) like what Dan did was not a criticism. Most people would say that was feedback.

    I used the Vox article because it had data on mortality rates based on age group. Looking at the average mortality rate of COVID-19 is simply misleading, especially in the case of the elderly.

    Here is a website on data on COVID-19
    https://www.worldometers.info/corona...-demographics/

    So if you are male, over a certain age, have cardio-vascular disease as a pre-existing condition, your odds when infected with COVID-19 are NOT good.

    You just can't help yourself can you, moron? You just have to criticize. You just have to politicize. You think your opinion is the only one that counts around here. You're a lame-brained idiot. Where the hell do you get off saying he didn't read it. That's an insult of the highest order. That's all you are doing here. Insulting people for no good reason. Dan should ban you.

    Nice post Dan.
    This precaution would have the same effect as pissing in the wind IMHO (and you may have the same opinion).

    With the slowdown in Vegas I would be looking at the bingo halls. Fixed payouts but low attendance.

    Hey! That's one of the best gambling/corona tips I've seen.

    I'd just add to make sure you sit in the back and as far away as you can from that 86 year old grandma with 32 trolls surrounding her who's chain smoking and hacking up a lung every few minutes.

    Hazmat suit is optional.

    I have witnesses and the forum has time-stamps of your post, e.g. 01-22-2020, 11:05 PM

    We saw you started the flame war like the village idiot that you are. Once a fraud, always a fraud.

    tableplay, you like to lie but keep getting caught (by time stamps).

    Ex-Ap, you can't win this one. I specifically remember you flaming tableplay first. Shouldn't take long to find the offending post.

    As promised: https://vegascasinotalk.com/forum/sh...ll=1#post96067

    Ex-Crement you will ignore this post or not address the fact that you fired the first shot if you don't. And then, when you think the coast is clear, you will dip your feet in the pool again (i.e., sneak in some insults) just like you tried to do this time. This foot dip in the pool is proof in and of itself that you are a troll, since things had been quiet for a couple weeks until this "wingnut/Farmville" bullshit you posted last night. Naturally, you have tried to obfuscate what a sack of shit you are by your virtue-signalling posts about how much you care about people getting corono-virus. Most evil fucks choose to make new socks, but I guess you figured, you'd go the Florence Nightengale route. You also wrote several derogatory things about Mickey Crimm, who never did a thing to you, you fuck.


    Anyhow, rot in hell.

    So let me get this straight. Dan politicized this by dismissing the guys article because it comes from a website that is partisan when dealing with politics. I point this out, and I am the one politicizing!

    Fail reasoning in full force.

    Micky, your name from here on out is going to be Mr. Kruger, first name Dunning.

    Also - You keep calling me the bitch and now you are wanting Dan to ban me. What happened to coming at me 4x harder? lol. Typical of a man who would follow Trump like you do. I think we all know who the real bitch is.

    Mickey one day out of the hospital would kick your ass like you have never seen in your lifetime. Because he is like that and you would deserve it.

    And people like you who donít like Trump are angry, jealous and full of hatred for a lifetime of bad decisions. You truly hate successful people who did it their way and thrived.

    You probably should go over to WoV and hang out with the other liberal losers like BillyBoy. You seem to have a lot in common with him.

    By the way, Go Fuck Yourself you liberal bastard! 😀

    Welp we stayed on topic for a few posts before the usual fight club.

    Hey Boz can we please get a zenking style rant if the government temporarily severely restricts or shuts down your business?

    You must have missed some of my recent posts. I sold my business and retired at 55 in December. Still feel bad for my employees who will be losing income that they cannot afford to lose because of bad government decisions.

    As for me, I have homes in 3 states and have been traveling across the country since early January. No fears on my end about this. Currently in Florida doing my part to support small business.

    Only regret is the profits I put in the Stock Market, but I feel good that if we survive this, opportunities will be everywhere. I am already thinking of ways to exploit this when it’s over, just like 07, the smart will find ways to make money.

    My retirement hasn’t exactly started the way I wanted, but I’ve always lived life to the fullest and expect it only to get better.

    Winners win, losers look for excuses.
