  1. You mean like clicking "I ACCEPT" online to prove that you actually read the Terms and Conditions instead of just scrolling to the bottom and clicking the button? Sure...small quiz. Then we could sit here looking at thread after thread of people sharing the answers so they don't have to watch it....much like they share their bid information with the very people they are bidding against hoping that they can determine the "magic number" to bid to win the room?
  2. Yeah, but you are still in your seat (where you would be to take emergency action) to watch the video. The question was why not just show it in the TERMINAL. If you can't read and comprehend the point, you're just making the case for live in-person instruction.
  3. Dumbest thing I've ever heard. Based on your logic, should we, instead of having children participate in a fire drill at school, just show them a video of people walking out of the building? I mean, why walk them through the path to the exit and to the muster area when they can just watch TV, right? Just like on an airplane? Based on your logic they should just show airline safety on a continuous loop on the TVs in the terminal instead of explaining to us on the airplane. No reason for the flight attendant to physically point out the exits when we can just watch TV, right?
  4. Right off the bat... How would you ensure that people actually watch and pay attention to the drill on the TV instead of being in the bathroom, or sitting out on their balcony chatting, playing on their phone, or taking a nap? Part of attending the drill is to ensure that you physically know how to get from your cabin to the muster station location and, once there, you know specifically where to go to check in. How would that be done on the television?
  5. "For some reason"...seriously? You trademark something to protect your financial interest in it. Obviously RCL is concerned with their profit from the mask. Sad that they are looking at the profitability of a means of personal protection, but hey, profit before lives right? Glad to hear about Plexiglas dividers since there are a fullproof method of disease prevention. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32405162/
  6. Sorry, but the post I was addressing didn't mention what was practical, the argument was solely based on the logic of "whats the harm". And nowhere in your reply did you do anything but skirt that very issue. Why do you feel that the WHO guidance is outdated? It is the current guidance they are putting out there right now...today. And I wasn't using them to support my point, I'm using theirs to address the point of the person I was responding to. Based on your morality comment, then perhaps you should just advocate that everyone wear that full biohazard suit and stay locked in their homes forever...thats the most humanity you could have. Now I'm going to go unroll my eyes.
  7. Why worry about a clear distinction between a "mask" and a "facial covering" when we're not even bothering to be clear about the distinction between the "CDC" and the "WHO"?
  8. Well, if that is your logic, then why not just have everybody wear a full biohazard suit all day every day? What is the harm when you could protentionally protect others, right? Proactive is not always a good thing when it comes to medicine. Should I take medications for illnesses that I don;t have...just to be proactive and get ahead of it? Latest WHO guideance for masks: If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19. So if I'm healthy, and I'm not taking care of a COVID-19 patient, I need not wear a mask. Notice that the WHO mentions nothing about "whats the harm".

  10. Ignoring the fact that they are contracted workers whose wages are determined by the agreed-upon contract, considering that they are not working in the US where US wage rates apply, what does minimum wage have to do with anything? The real comparison comes in what they make on the ship vs the pay rates in their home countries where they would have to work otherwise.
  11. I'm guessing here that you don't consider calling someone "intolerant" and "bitter" to be personal criticism, right? ...asking for a friend.
  12. Another "mistake"? If there was any truth behind your claim you wouldn't have bothered to quote me to try to sell your "Cuomo never once..." story in the first place. Yeah..."I don't care what you think, I'm just gonna read it, quote it, and respond to it even if I have to stick my foot in my mouth to do so". You don't need an ignore feature...just exert some self-control and don't respond at all. But we all know that isn't the real reason. HGH.
  13. Wow...a SINGLE instance (not "a single instance") you say. How many instances are required to refute the claim that "Cuomo never once.."?? One seems sufficient for me.
  14. Well...if the tactic is useless, then why not just cancel it completely? No sense extending a useless tactic.
  15. Never once, you say? Here is a link for you directly to the Governor's Official website where the transcript is printed out and you can see that he did, in fact, call it just that. https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/video-audio-photos-rush-transcript-amid-ongoing-covid-19-pandemic-governor-cuomo-announces-23 "That is because of what the people in this state did. If you had said when we started this, yes we have more cases than anyone else, yes we had this European virus attack us and nobody expected it, but we are not only going to change our trajectory, we're going to change the trajectory more dramatically than any place else in the nation."
