you aren't telling strangers you are "Vaxxed and Waxed and ready for action?"

Rich - The above is what you wrote and I highlighted the term "post-Corona" in both your posts.  That is all that was being responded to, in context, by Orik, me and then others.  No attempt was made

No, because I don't think the restaurant industry (at least in NYC) is fueled by people like you and me and the rest of us here.  It's fueled by people who are desperate to get out of their apartments

I am sure this is obvious to everyone, but every time I hear the argument about "my rights" being infringed by being told to wear a mask, I think of the equivalent argument that "my rights" are being infringed by being told not to drive drunk.

I heard "The science should not stand in the way of..." and figured since gravity is pretty science-y, certain people should demonstrate that science is not the boss of them by jumping off something very tall.

Please keep in mind that science doesn't currently provide a full explanation of gravity, relying on ether-like dark matter and dark energy as crutches. 

Also it's easier to take a bus to the edge of the earth disc and just jump off

Husband's rant about people who do the wrong thing under the banner of claiming their {rights" is that they ditched school the day they mentioned that the obverse of rights is responsibility.

I knew that. Or anyway, I remembered it as soon as I read your post. Still fairly confident that if I jump off the Williamsburg Bridge, the direction I am most likely to go is down.

We can't know anything for sure. Once they install 5G cells on the bridge, your chip might alert central and a drone will pick you up before you can figure out which way is which.

It's fascinating to read the early pages of this thread.    The prescient wisdom as well as naivté, the wistful hopes veiled as expectations.    Where we were then and now.

While we currently read excited posts about re-openings and re-vamping the restaurant scene, I have to wonder how much our experiences of the last 14 months will change our attitudes and behavior.    To what extent will the kitchen confidence gained by many color their willingness to pop for similar plates at multiples of cost, served with plexiglass and masks?

I could always pour a beer and make a cocktail; doesn't mean I didn't want to go out for a drink.

I cooked a ton and enjoyed it over the last 14 months. I was out for just a handful of outdoor dinners during that time. Once we were fully vaxed we went out 3 nights in a row and loved every minute of our experience. Not once did I ever entertain the thought that I could have made any of what we ate or drank at home.

so far there is nothing at all to suggest that people aren't going to go back to their old ways of behaving as fast as possible.  Indeed seems like "Hot Vax Summer" might be insane.

Like other than the timing of the reopening - there isn't much that we said a year ago that isn't turning out to be kinda sorta true.
