  1. Was at two baseball tourney's today so little later than normal on Travis County update. Big case day (compared to what it has been the past couple of weeks) with 226 cases. Age Bracket <1 1 to 9 10 to 19 20 to 29 30 to 39 40 to 49 50 to 59 60 to 69 70 to 79 >80 Total New Cases 9/25 vs 9/24 0 4 36 58 36 37 28 13 8 6 226 % of Daily Change 0.00% 1.77% 15.93% 25.66% 15.93% 16.37% 12.39% 5.75% 3.54% 2.65% % of Total Cases 0.49% 2.94% 9.21% 26.86% 21.06% 16.03% 11.38% 6.46% 3.21% 2.35% 29,130
  2. Holy shit. I was driving home from my kid's baseball tournament and heard the 75 yard run and was like "WTF!!!!!" and then somehow Texas miracles this comeback?? Unreal. Happy for the W, but holy shit is there A LOT to clean up.
  3. What happened? Am at baseball tournament
  4. Alright. Back at it again. Games in Georgetown for older boy and Taylor for the younger. Looks to be great weather all the way through the weekend. Little bit of normalcy back in the world. Hook ‘em Horns. One downside to fall baseball is it fucks up live football viewing)
  5. 159 cases in Travis County yesterday, largely in the 20 to 49 groups. Folks >60 are below their normal contribution which from a deaths perspective is a positive. 20 hospital admits yesterday. Age Bracket <1 1 to 9 10 to 19 20 to 29 30 to 39 40 to 49 50 to 59 60 to 69 70 to 79 >80 Total New Cases 9/24 vs 9/23 0 1 12 60 27 22 18 11 6 2 159 % of Daily Change 0.00% 0.63% 7.55% 37.74% 16.98% 13.84% 11.32% 6.92% 3.77% 1.26% % of Total Cases 0.49% 2.94% 9.16% 26.87% 21.10% 16.03% 11.38% 6.47% 3.21% 2.35% 28,904
  6. Just so half ass. Go and drop off athletic forms last night for football for my 8th grader at OHMS. The boys haven't been allowed to even meet and do PT together (at a distance etc) Yet we round the corner to drive off after dropping off forms and there are the cheerleaders doing some cheer in front of the school. No idea why that is allowed and the boys going on a 100 yard football field to run sprints & other non-pad work that can be socially distanced isn't. Also drove down Burnet last week and at Lamar Middle school it looked like they were in full pads practicing. (if not them someone else who looked to be middle school size/age was) Just WTF? Zero consistency and no communications. It's not a City of Austin thing as both of my boys have had baseball practice at indoor facilities over past couple of weeks. The inconsistent application of who can/can't practice is enough to drive you crazy.
  7. notch over 100 cases in Travis County yesterday primarily in the younger age groups (which should bode well for deaths/hospitalizations) ~75% of yesterday's cases where from folks <30.(compared to ~51% overall). There were 9 new hospital admits yesterday marking a steady drop over past couple of days from the 23 admits on 9/21 (9/22 as 17) Age Bracket <1 1 to 9 10 to 19 20 to 29 30 to 39 40 to 49 50 to 59 60 to 69 70 to 79 >80 Total New Cases 9/23 vs 9/22 1 3 21 38 11 11 10 5 2 0 102 % of Daily Change 0.98% 2.94% 20.59% 37.25% 10.78% 10.78% 9.80% 4.90% 1.96% 0.00% % of Total Cases 0.50% 2.96% 9.17% 26.81% 21.12% 16.04% 11.38% 6.46% 3.21% 2.36% 28,745
  8. Here are some obesity rates: (BMI >30). (From WHO's web site) USA: 37.3% China: 6.6% Japan: 4.4% We are a nation of fat people. I could easily find a ton of links from pre-Covid time that were around how being fat was ok and fat shaming evil, and how you could be fat and still be healthy etc etc etc The thing is if you are fat and catch CV19 you have a MUCH higher chance of dying than if you are not fat and catch it. As the US is just full of people stuffing their faces with fast food and using scooters and extendable ass wipers it should be no shock that more people in the US are dying from CV19 than in places where everything isn't "supersized" and people actually eat vegetables every now and then. By no means am I saying the US didn't fuck this up. Not fully protecting nursing homes is one key mistake (NY State sent 6,300 recovering CV19 patients into nursing homes for fuck's sake), not stopping air travel MUCH sooner, not having a national mask rule, not being clearer, faster on just who tends to die from this (82% >60 years old eg, impacts of obesity). etc etc A new study was just released that aggregated multiple other studies as shows across these multiple studies (totaling 399,000 patients) that obese people are 113% more likely to land in a hospital with CV19, 74% more likely to land in ICU & 48% more likely to die (even if younger). Maybe this will be wakeup call the USA needs to get healthy again.
  9. You are forgetting Bourbon. They have given us Bourbon.
  10. What is the R-Squared value for having a neck tattoo and also being arrested at some point? I think tattoo artist should force neck tattoo nimrods to sign some kind of waiver that says "you realize that having one of these will almost guarantee that you become involved in some sort of criminal activity?" Just nuts
  11. This is where being a nation full of fat asses and cramming our old somewhere out of sight (~25% or so of all CV19 deaths are from nursing homes/assisted living centers) is coming home to fucking roost.
  12. Low case count for Travis County yesterday with only 54 total cases. For first time in a couple of weeks the 10-19 cohort's contribution to the daily case load was lower than the overall to date contribution. In standard Travis County reporting news the <1 age group went down a case. No idea why this happens as often as it does. Age Bracket <1 1 to 9 10 to 19 20 to 29 30 to 39 40 to 49 50 to 59 60 to 69 70 to 79 >80 Total New Cases 9/22 vs 9/21 -1 2 2 15 13 3 10 6 1 3 54 % of Daily Change -1.85% 3.70% 3.70% 27.78% 24.07% 5.56% 18.52% 11.11% 1.85% 5.56% % of Total Cases 0.50% 2.96% 9.13% 26.77% 21.16% 16.06% 11.38% 6.47% 3.21% 2.37% 28,643
  13. No shit. Dirty 6th, right by I-35 homeless encampments. Only time you could go there and not deal with complete BS was super early. Just a terrible place to put a place to eat.
  14. There are no bikes but there were at one point a fuck ton of dipshits on Bird/Lime scooters. If this gets those fuckers out of the road then ok. Better to call these "Homeless drunken stumbling buffer zones" vs bike lanes. Adding 3-5 feet so a drunken/drugged out homeless person can fall off sidewalk onto the street is actually probably a higher demand on Congress than bike lanes. Maybe we could pad these stumbling buffer zones so when people fall off sidewalk they avoid injury. The $ spent on cushions is offset by reduced ambulance roll-outs.
  15. Picked up a bottle of Yellowstone & Kings County yesterday over in Travis Heights. Haven't had either one so looking forward to giving them a shot.
