Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

Sounds like some SERIOUS Orwellian 1984 stuff going on over there! But I shouldn't say anything, we're right behind you, and is one of the things the D's and R's agree on. As for drive throughs and parking lots, I'm not aware of any law forbidding using a cellphone while behind the wheel. They are p...

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

Back in 2015, I can remember driving back from the North Carolina coast on the beltway around Raleigh (the capitol city). If I'm not mistaken, the speed limit was 55, and I swear there must have been 10 lanes (five per side) on the road. We were coming through during rush hour, and I had gradually g...

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

The fastest speed limit in my neck of the woods is 70mph, (112 kph) though I've heard it can go faster out west, even here people push 80 to 85. Reckless driving is 80mph in my state. 70 is plenty fast enough considering the congestion, truck traffic, rolling hills etc. The GPS tracker on my work va...

Queer eye collection

Admittedly I have no idea what this is about... a Google search reveals it's some kind of TV show? At any rate, apparently Walmart sent me an email promoting "The Queer Eye Collection", which appears to be mostly furniture... Hmm... gay furniture... Dad's head is probably exploding right now... :twi...

Re: what to wear underneath?

In the interest of health I'll post this... On long summer hikes in the hills, often times cotton underwear with the little "opening" can cause a chaffing rash that last for days. I recall one time it got so bad even sitting or bathing was difficult. If I plan ahead I'll wear one of my pair of spand...

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

Getting around independently means usually car hire. One can specify an automatic shift, but on These Islands (GB/IRL) we drive on the LEFT, which many Americans have great difficulty with, but after the first 6 months you'll get good at it !! Not only must we adjust to driving on the left, but we ...

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

Just to recap... we now have two anti-vax threads active at the same time, and still nobody had answered my inquiry about the word "ironic".... :eye:

Yeah he's been a stinker.

You're al thoughtful man Faldaguy.

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

In the USA, I get the sense that you all unite behind the flag. You are - by and large - religious (Christian). You speak English, with other languages fitting in, notably Spanish. In moving around the USA, I never felt that I was in a different country. Hawaii was the closest to an exception. Ther...

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

That's fair Ray. But I do maintain that must of us do at least try to stay up to date on the events of the world, geography, history, etc. As for travel, I myself would love to travel around the world. Lots of us Americans often dream of that, and many of us envy other Americans who do. Someday I'll...

Well how absurd can it gat? You know what else doesn't make any sense? This song. I mean, what is it really supposed to be about anyway? Just a lifetime supply of lousy luck? It has no point, no direction, just one lyric after another of drawing the short straw... And is this really the correct use ...

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

What's the most obscene line ever uttered on US television? "Ward, I think you were a little hard on the beaver last night." That may have been true in the 60s and 70s but it is no longer true. Most of today's TV shows are full of swear words and sexual lines that you might think there aren't any l...
