Did these same coaches say that sex weakened the legs?



No but if your blood sugar is high your blood carries less oxygen.

This would be the nefarious plan if there was one. Some call these kinds of things pretext, where people become taught to expect and have a reaction. Next thing you know, 3 years from now, another outbreak, but there is a vaccine or medicine right away. This would be the evil plan to sterilize or eliminate the rest of the world. Of course I have speculated before I believe in time, there will be enough power to do it manually if desired by drones. Funny how some countries are more accepting of a lockdown than others, just read something which said Canadian support was unanimous, don't think the US is unanimous.



Canadians do not have the same independence mentality that Americans have. America was born of revolution, Canada was just kind of given their emancipation. Americans are taught about Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death from a young age. Canadians still have a weird 1% devotion to the Brits.

That is just Canada. Lots of nations have a "do as told" population. Not the USA so much. It goes to so many levels, for example, Americans are prized as pilots by non-western nations for their ability to think independent.

Americans will lock down for a legit emergency, WWII restrictions for an example. But they will not keep doing it when no benefit is being seen.

Yes....the longer it goes, restlessness grows. Then the people will be looking for solid, known reasons to justify staying inside and watching netflix hour after hour.

Did any of these smoking studies consider reduced lung function of smokers? It seems to me that if someone isn't breathing deeply or normally or has lung function disturbed by smoking they may not be inhaling enough pathogens to take hold.

Anyway, that's my non medical based question. I never went beyond biology 101 in college. But I did play several varsity sports and the coaches always said smokers didn't take in as much oxygen... and maybe they don't take in as much Covid -19 either?



The lungs become coated with yellowed nicotine lung mucus which acts like insecticide would to an ant. Same crap long term smokers cough up regularly.

The nurses were a little short for smokes Wednesday night...........

I fear that the casino in Windsor will open before the ones in Detroit .... the area around and including Detroit has more deaths from this virus than all of Canada.

The Detroit area with a population of about 4 million compared to Canada 37.5 million . Canada 2150 deaths just the county that Detroit is in has 1400..... downtown Detroit is half a mile away from the front doors of Caesars Windsor. County Windsor is in has 31 deaths with population of 400,000

There's a story on the back burners saying that, although smokers fair poorly if hospitalized by Covid-19, they are far less likely to be hospitalized by it in the first place. Naturally this has caused a huge uproar.

If it's true, however, I think only smokers should be allowed in casinos for the first week or two after they reopen. Then once the smokers have made the gaming area's atmosphere sufficiently toxic with second hand smoke should the nonsmokers be allowed in to breath safe air.

Hmm... It appears the observation in several countries that smokers are far less likely to contract coronavirus is picking up steam and being tested in France. Will nicotine patches become harder to get than toilet paper? Strange days.

Full story at The Daily Mail


Fearing store shelves will be wiped out, France has now put limits on the amount of nicotine gum and patches people may purchase.

Wind Creek Casino email says that going forward , they’ll only allow patrons to come in if they make a reservation. This is for just coming to gamble. Not a hotel room.

”Once we believe we can accommodate more Guests, we will reopen to the general public. We will still be operating at reduced capacity and we don’t want the excitement of visiting our property spoiled due to waiting in line to get in. So we will offer a new reservation system for casino visits. This system will allow Guests to “reserve” a day and time in advance and will allow us to always keep the number of Guests and Team Members on property and on the casino floor at a safe number. Please expect more information on this system soon.”
