NO. It is a Google image of a Lisfranc fracture This injury is easy to get wearing boots that have a lot of flex in the midsole, which, again, is the current trend in boot design (and wrong IMO). It would be pretty hard to get it wearing GX-1s, because ... more »

You are oversimplifying things a bit. You need to also differentiate between soft, "so comfortable" boots and boots with real midsole and shaft rigidity. An entry price Gaerne GX-1 has more of both than the current most popular boot model in the world.

No one ever questioned your greater point. As of now, still no one has. People only questioned your numbers. Despite the apparent simplicity of math, your numbers are now closer but still incorrect. I don't intend this with ill will - despite some of ... more »

1. I never said you were biased, I just pushed back on you saying that I was. 2. I am starting to get sick of the lockdown, because people are starting to get wound up about it and that worries me. 3. I think it was smart initially, to get out in front ... more »

Ok, so the article that I cited said "There are also 1,939 hospitalizations associated with the disease." and you said "338 hospitalized". Now, why would my number be different than yours? Could it be confirmation bias or some other reason? BP

OK let me get this straight: you said 250, then when asked said YOU WERE SURE THAT WAS RIGHT , then went to a different number as if you never misspoke the first time, then used the snapshot current total which is not in correct context, then skipped ... more »

Less than 250 hospitalized in the entire state? You sure about that? Because it seems like you pulled the number from a single county to make this point. BP

I get exactly what you meant, see that FB is different than a forum, but technically they are both social media. BP

IDF, what you just said is exactly what cognitive bias is. Seeking out an opinion that supports your own preconceptions, instead of reexamining your preconceptions to see if they are correct. Using cognitive bias to define social media while posting ... more »
