Awww.was the frame too wide for his short little arms? Bless him...

He looks to me to have a 6’3ish wingspan anyway.

Transparency in the group and event selection process is one of those on-the-wishlist-but-will-never-happen with WSM. If you had seeds then a random draw it would sort out some of the controversy.

Three brits in the final. Good result

Front hold also a very frustrating way to decide such a tight group. ~3 seconds of holding a comedy Pickaxe out in front of you the difference between automatic qualification and elimination? Dumb.

Anyway, hopefully Luke can beat Faires in the stone off. Though feel bad for any of the top four who don’t get through in that group.

Seems Pritchett has some injuries so I think Bish will take it. Even so, think Jerry’s not amazing at stones (relative to how good he is at most stuff) so I think I’d favour Bish either way.

Well possibly I suppose. It is strongman after all. I’ve had a torn bicep tendon and I couldn’t straighten my arm. Or maybe I could’ve if I hadn’t cared if it totally detached.
Anyway good luck to Tel.

I’m sure a 360lg deadlift would have straightened it out Wink

I’d love Felix to make the final. He’s pretty good at stones so there’s a chance I guess. Obviously not against Trey but apparently stones aren’t Singleton’s strong suit?

macroth said:Comparing countries to evaluate the effectiveness of lockdowns is unbearably stupid. None of these so-called studies even pretend to be able to account for demographics, compliance rates, initial case/death rates and all the other confounding factors, let alone how you define "lockdown".

Agree. Somehow though, in looking at Sweden, people seem to think it’s ok just to point to Norway, Finland and Denmark as if that makes a case. It doesn’t, either way.

macroth said:
The only valid question is, what was happening in a given location before the lockdown, and what happened after?

The simple fact of the matter is that in countries where cases/deaths were rapidly increasing and a lockdown (of some sort) was implemented, daily cases and deaths almost immediately leveled off or started to decrease rapidly.

Surely this is a post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy? The same trends can be seen in non- locked down places, too, and in typical flu season peaks and troughs.

macroth said:
Reducing human interactions slows the spread of a virus among humans. Claiming otherwise is idiotic

Sure, but to what extent? And what impact does in/out/in have on numbers vs not locking down? Perhaps the integral is the same with longer, shallower curves.

Clearly, lockdowns as practically implemented in real life are not the same thing as a theoretical mathematical lock down. (The extreme and ideal mathematical lockdown would solitary confinement for the entire pop!). The question is whether real lockdowns work, not theoretical ones.

All that said, still the most important question remains—presuming they do work (I imagine even bad lockdowns work to an extent, despite the lack of clear evidence), are they a good idea? That’s a much harder question to answer.

Basically no videos though. The few years previously you could watch a lot live from various Instagram accounts
