Re: Mask, skirts, and protest....

Although on youtube I do see a lot of clips of TV shows where american TV presenters are just as good as the Brits at nailing their politicians. Maybe we are the same but different? It used to be, not long ago, but lately our elected officials seem to have obtained a certain God like following. So ...

Re: Here we go again...

Ugh. I have a looming php 7 upgrade myself - but it comes with it a completely redone stack in AWS. Covid has sorta pushed that upgrade to the back burner, but I really want to upgrade so I can use a different apache MPM. I feel your pain!

Re: Corona Virus

As bad as the economy looks, the stock market keeps going up. I can't figure out why other than anyone who has any money doesn't have anywhere else to put it. I can't think of any other investments and I don't understand why certain stocks; Amazon, Tesla, Google, Apple, etc. have done so well. Some...

Re: Corona Virus

Michigan is about two weeks from opening up, but they are starting to relax things a bit - both the legislature and some pending lawsuits have - I think - forced the governor to ease up a bit. So far nothing has worried me - I think the opening up that has happened has been sensible, though I think ...

Re: Corona Virus

My sister and her friend (a nurse) agree on everything - except the reopening. Her hospital is near capacity, but Detroit, Livonia, and I think Northville are still bursting at the seams. Her nurse friend is against. They are both conservative (since the news/politicians have politicized this, thou...

I'm pretty sure it was Rodman too. I read the original comment early in the morning, and thought, "Did I somehow slip into a parallel universe?"

Re: Corona Virus

Tennessee is about to open their state here shortly, I am surprised by how many conservatives I've spoken to here in meatspace that seem opposed to that. Those who aren't flat out opposed seem to have a look about them that they just aren't sure governor Lee is doing the right thing. Time will tell...

Re: Corona Virus

We see pictures of parts of the USA - not sure whereabouts - where people are protesting about lockdown, denying the existence of a pandemic, and claiming that some deity “a higher power” will sort things. Incredible. You couldn’t make it up. We - Michigan - had one in the state capitol. I honestly...

Re: Corona Virus

The far left as well as the far right media have made it look like the US is burning to the ground but rest assured we are not. I take the news with a side of laughter as it is all bullsh!t. Last night I was watching a news broadcast and in the space of 3 minutes the commentator counterdicted himse...

Re: Corona Virus

The problem is many of the restrictions imposed upon us by our governors/tyrants are nonsensical. In some states people are not allowed to fish. Why? I have no idea - maybe the state doesn’t want to have dnr officers out making sure limits are enforced (or whoever enforces limits). So people who mig...

Re: Are you using the remain in place rule to your advantage?

Mask guidance appears to be mixed. My take on it is: 1) A mask/covering will reduce the amount of virus reaching your airways - may not prevent catching it, but may reduce the severity of the disease. There is limited research on other viruses in this vein, but not something I'd bet money on. 2) Asy...

Re: Corona Virus

What's missing is the number of recoveries -- in other words, how many now likely have some immunity or at least resistance to re-infection, and that's going to take a while to ferret out. Check into how they classify a recovery - in Michigan it was reported it just means: "Recovered is defined as ...
