Depending on the quality of travel restrictions: Fly them in, have them tested (if required), do the rig with masks, fly them back. Are all the contestants from the US? If someone would be from Canada would of course be much easiert.

Is Canada this strict, still? No entering at all for non-citizens?

As a US citizen I will say that I wouldn't want to be on a plane with some of the idiots in this country. We've had in total 14 million confirmed cases during the pandemic, not worth the risk. Winning a contest is awesome, LMG did a really good job considering the situation, and the choice to not fly people around was the best one.

True that. That being said, I am again and again surprised by the amount of passenger planes that are still regularly operating in the US. Everytime I check sites like flightradar24.com I ask myself the question whether there is an actual pandemic going on over there or not, the map is full of hundres of aircrafts over US soil.

Imagine the liability of flying someone over, them getting COVID, and dying.

What?? As long as you give her the choice and she decides to come, why should they be liable? If her plane crashes down, you also sue LMG because they were the reason she took the risk to go on a plane? This is nuts.. But maybe this is an US-legal-only thing I am unable to grasp.

 

Besides this, the chances of someone her age (unless she's in a risk group) even getting any strong symptoms are basically zero. Every car ride holds a much higher risk.

OMG!! He's giving her such a hard time! It's cringing! :(

I know, right! She actually seemed to kinda know what to do but Linus just kinda treated it like a joke or something. Although, I feel like if it was in person, it would've been a lot different. I mean, there would've been no reason to watch the video if it was just him building a PC with someone just watching, you know? But when he kept putting in the cpu incorrectly as a 'joke' it kinda pissed me off ngl. Although in his defense, the virtual thing is new, and they have to find a way to keep viewers interested and stuff and theres still a lot to learn.

hahaha I have depression haha lol. But also i'm Tanjiro Kamado's husband

Few reasons for this, flying within the USA is not banned (like in Canada) but not advised therefore flights still can happen, in fact unlike the US Citizens Canadians can cross the boarder freely (assuming the US guard likes you or likes your resons). The bigger reason why you see large amounts of plans in the air isn't because the pandemic is "fake" or none of that nonsense, it's because airlines have legal obligations with airports to keep their spots. This means if say Delta parks all air crafts they would eventually loose their rights to park their planes at airports for passenger use or pay fines/fees. So even when large lock downs a few months back were in play you could see hundreds of passenger planes in the air for that reason, now what many companies are not telling you is they are doing everything they can to limit their losses. Every plane has cargo space right? Well if you are forced to fly to airports regardless to keep your spot there and flying basically empty your belly of the plane can carry X tons of goods. See where this is going? That commercial plane might have 0 people less crew on it but could have millions of dollars in merchandise going from LA to NY in its cargo section (and apparently seating areas, which I didn't know till today). Not as efficient as a UPS plane etc however if they are flying regardless why not?

Hi!

 

Jumping in here to clear some items up. 

 

Travel between US + Canada is on lockdown unless it's considered essential need I believe, but primarily we don't want to run a risk of someone getting while they were traveling to or back from our offices regardless if they're in Canada or the US. 

 

We felt this was the best alternative instead of picking 3 local Vancouver BC winners only.

To build on this. I live out in remote Alaska. I work with a few people from a town called Haines. Their major shopping is historically done in Whitehorse. In order for them to do that, they have to call a head(it's about a 5 day wait currently), have an itinerary pretty much down to the hour on where and when they will go places. If they are caught out of those places it's a huge fine and possibly jail time. They aren't allowed to overnight in YT. Just under 5 hour drive each way and they HAVE to be back out that night. 

For the people who want to drive to Alaska. There is a set route you have to take. If you are caught off that it's fine and possibly jail time. You can only do this with prior permission and an Alaska state driver's license to prove residence and that you're not just a snowbird(someone who lives up here in summer then goes down to the likes of Arizona, California etc for nicer winters). There's actually quite a few people who are "stuck" up here. They used the exemption in spring time thinking this would all be over with by winter. Now they can't drive to winter homes because their license says they live up here. That makes the trip turn into a tourism trip and not essential. They can fly, but then motorhomes or vehicles are stuck up here.

 

So yes. @Dracarris Canada is this strict. 

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

ROG RIG Reboot is an event they do once a year where they choose 3 winners based on video submissions to build a gaming pc with linus. This is the first of the 3 winners for this year. Assuming they do it again next year and you live in a country included in the give away, you can enter next year.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Loved this one!! :D (#HireEmma :P Linus did say---oh wait, that's on floatplane early access right now, no spoilers.)  I think she mentioned wanting to stream, I hope she's able to get started soon, maybe I should follow her. :)  (I've already followed Madison and popped into a few of her streams now and then in chat.)

 

Hey does anyone know when the next episode will be up on YouTube (and posted on the forums)? I'd like to respond with a few pictures, because I'm apparently not the only one who---- (ah, uh uh, remember? no spoilers! :P)

Speaking of Linus hiring people.... is it wrong that I'm struggling / trying to not have TOO much of a crush on Sarah, like I may or may not have had on Max? 😆 I guess I was the only one. 687474703a_f6b2e706e67_TwitchKappa.png.680a0e65e332d15e305dead859f05e58.png

So yes. @Dracarris Canada is this strict. 

They have solutions for moving motorhomes and vehicles across the border. The snowbirds can still make the trip with their motorhomes and vehicles. They have to fly into the US and their vehicles will be waiting for them in the US. The basic jist is commercial drivers are considered essential workers and can cross the border for commercial endeavors. So they are able to bring the RV or vehicles across. Since you can still fly commercially into the US from Canada this make a loophole that can  be used to circumvent the issue of being stuck up north. 

Here is a link to one company that does this: https://www.tptrucking.ca/2020/07/is-your-boat-or-rv-stuck-across-the-canada-usa-border-during-this-covid-19-pandemic/
