“Not sure why the Bucks are wearing blue unis when everyone knows deer are green.”

“Recently there’s been the emergence of a small but distinct group of dudes (mostly) on here whom you might call anti-contrarians.”

“One thing some of y’all don’t seem to get is that if a very high percentage of people in a certain group are vaccinated, then a fairly high percentage of infections may be among vaccinated people, even if the vaccines are incredibly effective.”

“Hard to find a taxicab in New York City these days.”

“I also wonder if there are some tipping points. Institutions like academia have strong traditions of open debate, which helps them to be self-critical. But if you go from e.g. 80% of members preferring one political party to 95%, those traditions may get swamped by partisanship.”

“Nobody stays in their lane, which is fine—overall I’m in favor of less lane-staying. But when you have groups of experts and (in some fields) 95%+ of them are liberal Democrats, you’ll often wind up with a messy amalgam of actual expertise and partisan political preferences.”

“My theory here is COVID taught people how much they value everyday activities that they had to give up during the worst phases of the pandemic, and it will probably be harder to get people to give those up in the future if new waves/future pandemics hit.”

“Late night poker hot take is that they should bring the Tiger back (as described in James McManus’s “Cowboys Full”).”

“One consistent lesson from COVID is you should trust the experts’ evidence (e.g. studies that show mRNA boosters really boost protection in people who got the AZ vaccine) more than their proscriptive advice (e.g. “I wouldn’t get a booster) when the two are in conflict.”

“Another question: Given that Garcia barely edged out Wiley in the penultimate round before nearly catching Adams, does that mean Wiley has a path *too* once absentees are added? My guess is Wiley has a path, but it’s pretty unlikely one (see next tweet).”

“It sure seems very likely that people who got one dose of J&J would benefit from getting a booster of Pfizer or Moderna. Maybe another case where waiting for some incredibly high standard of “proof” before changing policy is harmful on balance.”

“You really wonder what the long term effects are when every donor pitch is like “contribute in the next 22 minutes or IS TOAST”.”
