Re: Tomorrow I Fly

The H1N1(Swine Flu) numbers were much worse than COVID-19, yet ... You must be looking at different data than I've seen. H1N1 had 3,433 confirmed deaths(1) in the US; COVID-19 has over 227,000(2) and rising by about 700(3) per day. (1) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_swine_flu_pandemic_in_the_Un...

Re: Can man look good in dress?

I think this dress looks good for me, although my wife calls it a "jumper" it's different from the British "jumper." DSCF5626cs.jpg My wife likes it better with the sweater on, so it's not obvious it's a dress. DSCF5625cs.jpg My wife made a positive comment on it that she likes the emboidery. DSCF56...

Re: Out in Left Field - Food for Thought

That's not "left field" at all, but an entirely valid observation. The problem is how "education" is prosecuted in the modern world -- at least in the US. It's entirely focused on having the individual regurgitate, in a Pavlovian way, factoids that have been imparted on the individual. It has preci...

Re: The Electoral College-How It Works

Thanks for the link to the platform. Worth reading.

Re: Dress number two

Looks good; I wouldn't have guessed you've just started sewing garments. Maybe I should try, also.

The hairy legs help the look. Don't let people convince you to shave them because that's what many women do.

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Here's what I wore to outside, socially distanced church this morning. The shirt was tucked neater than this quick snapshot. No comments from others.

Re: The Electoral College-How It Works

It is an interesting article, but misleading and unconvincing. The headline is The Supreme Court Just Confirmed The Electoral College Is Here To Stay. It then admits a constitutional amendment could abolish it. Kyle Sammin discusses the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact saying, Furthermore, e...

Re: Skirt Wearing by Women Increasing?

I have asked women why they don't wear skirts or dresses in really hot weather and I have been told it is because of their thighs rubbing together. I haven't done a study in women's thighs, but is this due, then, to obesity? I know my knees hit each other long before my thighs could even when I'm a...

Re: SOMETHING TO PONDER: George Carlin

Snopes credits the Paradox piece to Dr. Bob Moorehead, former pastor of Seattle’s Overlake Christian Church. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/the-p ... -our-time/
To me that makes it better, rather than worse.

Re: Old Woman Patriot

If the old lady's father died in WW2, he was born around 1915-1920. The old lady would have been born around 1937-1946. She can't be born after 1946 because WW2 ended in 1945. Taking the 1937 year, she would have been 13-16 during the Korean Conflict which ran from 1950-53. So her husband would not...

Re: Old Woman Patriot

Threatening to brutally assault someone for a friendly gesture is sick in my opinion. People enjoy this story because they consider those of a different political opinion as enemies to be hurt. This is the opposite of patriotism, which will seek a nation of people that cares for one another.

Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

In the US, hate crime laws give a chance to prosecute when local prejudices prevent local protection. I agree they would be unneeded if prosecutions were fair, but they're not.

Re: Non - US views on last night’s election debate

A popular vote would each person EQUAL voice in the election. With the electoral vote, a voter in Montana has about three times the voice of a voter in California.
