What do you guys do on here during droughts

Like, what would we discuss in the forum?

everything even remotely Yuzu-related, several times, moaning squealing screaming at ISU moaning squealing again and again and again:tumblr_inline_mqt4graWWO1qz4rgp:

If you haven't yet gone through the media thread, I advise ot start digging old content there (I stil find old interviews I haven't read), or maybe "catch up" with previous threads (like OWG one which was a roller coaster, yes, but a happy one):tumblr_inline_ncmif5EcBB1rpglid:

Basically everything, from ISU newest ideas and why they are bad to Yuzu's skin complexion and why we can't have one like that :shrug:

LMAO poignant summary:smiley-laughing021:

 

wasn't Kast working for streaming parties?

At worst, maybe we might watch a YT playlist together lol (a nightmare to be in sync tho with different connection speed)

tbh I still have tons of pics and vids to organize, kinda glad I have a reasonable time now. Also, I am in dire need of rewatching everything.

 

re: ice shows

Spoiler

I feel like April ones are out of question sadly, I just don't see emergency being sufficiently contained by then. May also seem already too close, tbh. For June... maybe, but it's telling that Japan is already asking for the chance of delaying Olympics. On the other hand, though, OG are 1000 times more "international" than local ice shows and involve way larger numbers of people crossing oceans, so, depending on how Japan holds on, they might decide it is safe to host events like ice shows, even if maybe with 4CC-like precautions... but since Yuzu would need to travel to get there, I wouldn't want for him to go if virus is still rampant in other places.

Sadly we can't make many predictions because a lot depend on whether warmer climate will really slow down this virus (not enough evidences to think so rn, but let's still hope for the best) and how much people and governments around the world will be able to implement behaviour and policies to defeat the virus (or at least severely slow its spread so health care systems don't get overhelmed). It will also be important to see what happens in China now that restrictions are being lifted and people are going back to their life

Anyway, since China took two months of draconian measures to reach that point, I guess that's the shortest timeline one can expect if local clusters aren't contained swiftly and efficiently.

Tho one can hope that people and governments are gradually learning from all the countries that "got" the epidemy earlier and skip that couple of weeks of inaction that made things bad and overcome things in a shorter time

I doubt it'll happen. To plan an event of that scale in what? A few months? It's impossible. Not to mention we have no idea what the virus situation will be in a few months. The ISU won't want to make the deposits without knowing if they'll have to cancel again. And you can't ask figure skaters to stay in shape throughout the summer. Many of them have to skate in shows (if they're even happening) to make money. There's just no way it'll be rescheduled because unlike 2011, you can't just pick a new venue.

 

An article I read with information from academics who are experts at making predictions about the spread of disease like this suggested that the virus would peak in Australia around August, and I imagine Canada is probably in a similar situation, just perhaps with further delay simply because it's further away from Asia.

 

Medical research teams everywhere are working on developing a vaccine and treatment options so we don't really know what could happen once that's figured out.

Before thinking about new programs...I'm watching Yuzu's free skate from Junior Worlds 2010 now - it happened 10 years ago today. :) It was a great skate and I love to watch it again then and now.

 

 

He isn't doing that super low sit spin with straight leg since Pyeongchang.:sadPooh:

It is winter in Australia in August.  most flus (and no one knows if this will behave like other coronavirus's and the flu) are a seasonal deal.  In the northern hemisphere, regular flu season is usually December through maybe April.  But, truly, no one knows if this will behave like other virus'.  There is a prediction that if it does dissipate in the spring, it will likely come back next season.  Unknown - but there will be no vaccine by then, so this could all be ugly again next year.

Wild speculation about our boy's next program layout, general sympathy for the state of Brian's hair or lack thereof, making up skits and songs, looking at Yutiful pictures, more wild speculation about costumes, watching bootleg YouTube of FaOI, and assorted merriment. 

 

It's going to be difficult this year because the drought will be long, but hey!  -> no damaged ankles to worry about this time! Silver lining.

 

Also wild speculation about Nessie & co.  Like, it's been ages since he said at ACI he tried quints in harness. Wonder if he's tried to land them out of harness.

 I'm not sure about the no vaccine. No vaccine deemed safe and thoroughly tested according to first-world medical research standards perhaps, but the whole world is affected and not every country has the same rules and priorities.

It is a fairly safe thing to predict it will be at least a year before a vaccine for this virus is able to be used.  First, they have to come up with one (or more) vaccines and then test them for a period of time.  There is no way to rush the science.  Maybe some countries will come up with something a little bit sooner but it won't be approved for use in the states.  Protocols.  The best we can hope for, really, is effective treatment soon. Especially for the elderly.

Silver lining - definitely more time for 4A practice. 

 

I'm expecting all ice shows to cancel, if they have not announced cancellation yet. 

 

So can we have our beauty blogger back during this drought?

Yes, but after the end of the season, everything moves down a row... so 2019-2020 is 100%, 2018-2019 is 70%, and 2017-2018 drops off the list entirely. So, because Nathan didn't go to 4CC, he doesn't have any ISU championship results from this season. (GPF is counted under Grand Prix results.) If my math's right, Yuzu will have 3786 points to Nate's 2880. And just eyeballing it, I don't think anyone else will be able to catch him.


Awesome. Only bit of good news from this whole fiasco. Still trying to get refunds from my airline

He'll have to think up more deathless revelations like "I like cats".....

This year, in "Beauty Tips from Center Ice", our mysterious blogger reveals that lip-syncing to J-rock is good for the complexion! 

 

Stay tuned as he confesses his love for video games! 

 

:LOL:

 

Ya gotta laugh. It's better than crying.

I can't see how they could do it then - and it would be somewhat ridiculous to even try.  The skaters would be beyond exhausted, I hope if the ISU did go that way a lot of the top ones, those IN the GP series, would decline to do both.

The Bizarro thought occurs to me that they might try to do it in lieu of SCI.

All that fuss about him repeating his programs AGAIN, I still remember vividly and now - he only used them ONCE! ONCE! 

I do assume that he will come up with the new ones for the new season.

I am sad but extremely relieved at the same time. I would not have been enjoying myself while be being wrought with worry that I could catch something and/or bring something back to my loved ones or colleagues. Honestly I'd been questioning if I was just going to eat the cost because the thought was making me so unhappy. Honestly I'm sure hearing about the NBA cancellations, Tom Hanks testing positive, and then flight bans from Europe would have put me over the top.  I just hated that the ISU was going to leave it up to me instead of doing the right, ethical thing. 20,000 people from all over the world rubbing elbows with e/o for up to 10 hours a day for a week during a pandemic is flirting with disaster. I would have been worried sick about the skaters too with crowds and gifts. And don't think that it wouldn't have weighed on Yuzu's mind that thousands of people would be there risking it to see him. Not to mention the well-being of his mom who usually sits in the crowd and his coaches too that are usually all around. And of course himself as an asthmatic.  Shame on the ISU for not doing it sooner.
