This is the thread for poorly executed tables, not poorly executed logic.

To the ignore list for you.
Apparently this thread is for arguing about scientific theory vs fact and not about poker tables at all anymore.

All because I made a hot dog joke.
Sorry I made @Dix and @BGinGA go on a tangent and derail a great thread.

I'd rather commit a minor faux pas than be running around with a Kotex over my mug & actually believing it's has any hope of "keeping safe" from a virus.

Anyone who actually believe that, & ends up actually dying from it, I'm simply chalking up to Darwinism at this point.

If you're soooooo smart my "are you smarter than a redneck" challenge prize is now up to $100... all you have to do is provide the proof. :LOL: :laugh:
I get what you’re saying about masks. Viruses are a lot smaller than bacteria and can go through mask fibres, however there is an argument that wearing a mask encourages people to socially distance and to maintain good hand hygiene.

As for climate change and passive smoking we’ll agree to disagree :)

You can’t eat a hotdog while wearing a mask. Fact.
Fact check ... false

"Evidence" would imply proof... for which none exists.... like human induced climate change & masks can stop a virus.

But then, we stopped teaching the difference between theory & fact a long time ago... hence the confusion.

You reap what you sew.... unless of course, the dumbing-down was a plan.

Drives me crazy when people refute mask wearing because "it doesn't work" / "it doesn't stop the virus"

Where, in the history of medicine, has anyone said these things stop transmission?

The point of everything that's being done is to reduce transmission/exposure, which masks and social distancing achieve.

Condoms "don't work", neither do seatbelts, defibrillators, life jackets, helmuts, or moonsuits

Masks reduce transmission.
Masks catch moist particles that carry the virus. The virus needs the droplets to carry it. Stop the droplets, which are much bigger and you stop the virus.

Masks dont stop stupid though.

However, ignore filter stops stupid - so I'm missing a number of recent posts.

Wow. As a biology major I have no words for you, except welcome to my first ignore.

Add a new twist to your home game. Every hour spin the playing surface and play the chips that land in front of you! Big winner or big loser? No one know till the last spin of the night. Who needs bomb pots when you have this! :LOL: :laugh:

I am sorry though that you view banning pubic indoor smoking to be "political correctness". It stinks. There is well documented evidence that second-hand smoke shortens life spans.

Quite frankly, those gentlemen may still be alive today because of smoking bans... and COVID bans. If the landlords/tax collectors can just accept that businesses cannot pay because they are closed for national safety, these places would snap right back when the restrictions are lifted.
I wasn't talking about public indoor smoking in general.
My point is about bars, places of unhealthy pleasures, off-limits to minors.
They anyway serve severely unhealthy beverages (hard liquor), only slightly milder than heroin.
We have seen what happened when alcohol was banned in the US.

My view is that vaping / heating should be allowed anyway in such adult entertainment places (no relation to burning tobacco).
Smoking could still be allowed in specific places for an extra tax, built-in to the price of the drinks.
I too hate paper (cigarette) smoke ('cause I can't enjoy my heated tobacco), but can happily live with pipe and cigar smoke.

As for the gentlemen pictured, these pictures come from the full-smoking era, and each one of them was still alive till the Covid era, to my knowledge.

I'm sure thought went in to this...but I just don't know what that thought was.View attachment 641601
Builder: I got an idea... a 4-player, COVID-friendly table. Each with individual felts to prevent cross contamination, and leg-barriers, so nobody gets too close to the table.

Player: How will we pass cards and chips?

They obviously don't want anyone to be using that table for anything. Not only with the 4 divided felt sections, but deliberately obstructing everybody's legs is the dead giveaway. The only thing missing is razor wire.
