Great question. I I’m surprised to learn how inaccurate these tests are. I’d take a doctor’s opinion after an examination as the best indicator, so I’d be interested to hear a doctor’s perspective on the role the tests play in his diagnoses.

Opens post like This: “This is what l'm hearing as well” Then says: “If everyone would stop posting the idiocy they hear from friends or bullshit they read on social media we'd all be the better for it.”

I’m guessing you don’t see the irony of making a statement about evidence without evidence. In any event, saying something like “no conclusive evidence” or “little evidence” may be supportable. “No evidence” can be easily refuted with a single piece ... more »

This post expresses pointedly the tensions that exist when trying to navigate something like covid. Harm will result from pretty much any course of action - too many restrictions result in economic hardship, not enough result in too much spread of the ... more »

Reading others’ comments, it seems that there is a tendency to equate talent with technique. Technique is usually the product of much practice. Both the smooth, technical rider and the aggressive, balls to the wall rider can be equally talented. If anything, ... more »

Added reply in a thread A possible solution. 3/18/2020 9:04 AM

The possibility of virus transmission is only one consideration. Another is that motocross is a high risk activity - which we all know and accept - which means holding a motocross event will very likely result in situations requiring medical care. If ... more »

I work in accounting for a big 4 firm. We haven’t been told to work from home yet but I’m guessing we will be at some point. We have unlimited sick days so if someone is sick there is no reason for them to be at work. Businesses still need accounting ... more »

If there is an asterisk on Tomac's title (if indeed that is what happens), the question is: So what? It's not like an asterisk due to steroid use or something else that he did wrong. If it's simply to inform people who look up the information in the ... more »

That's very concerning. The problem is that this is the kind of information that can cause panic. People feel like they have some measure of control of the situation if they believe that they can prevent transmission with hand washing, hand sanitizer, ... more »
