Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

That will never happen. The FDA has pinned its reputation on the refusal to approve thalidomide in the 1960s, when other countries (including Germany and Canada) approved it. They are going to wear that as armor against outside approval until the heat death of the universe. Plus you will never lose...

Re: This is the thread for people who died, died.

Saw them, with Curley, in the early 80s at the Hartford Civic Center. It was maybe a third to half full, so there were a few thousand folks watching the show.

Re: Joys in the time of Quarantine

I'm in the food industry, so am considered essential. I even have a company pass that says so in case i'm stopped by cops on my way to/from work. :lol:

My free time is the same: some cooking, some reading, some tv, some vidya gaming.

WTF? Why wouldn't they want to test you? Is UK having a shortage of tests as well? Because it wouldn’t change the treatment right now which would be rest and isolate. He said I can get it if I want one, but not worth the expense (private doctor). He said he could send me a home test in the post. Fa...

Heh - back then the lunch boxes were metal, and came with a little glass-lined vacuum thermos. If you dropped your lunchbox, you had to shake the closed thermos before drinking to check for a broken liner. Can you imagine telling an 8 year old today to check their thermos first so they don't shred t...

RSN - I've noticed the traditional 'soup veggies' are always the first to go. Carrots, celery, onions, & potatoes almost depleted during emergencies. Same for whole chickens, or parts, and "stew meat".

Everybody makes soup 'cuz it's generally easy.

To maybe ride along with nicole for a bit, it boggles my mind how apparently so many kids are fed breakfast and lunch via the public school system.

Re: Dancing With the Dems

I just wonder at a mentality that could believe rich people, especially a single one, have so much money that they could give every citizen in the country a million dollars. The claim is completely outrageous. It's one thing to get fooled by something that sounds a little too good to be true. But t...

Re: Guns and Whatnot.

CT has introduced a bill to add a $0.35 excise tax per round of ammunition sold in the state. To help fund gun violence programs. There's also a bill to revise our red flag law that would allow petitioners to apply for a seizure warrant directly to a judge, and bypass an LEO investigation first. The...

Re: Casting The Stand: Prestige TV Edition

I was going to say I'm a fan of horror, but I think I'm more of a fan of the weird and strange that maybe more often than not results in horror or despair.

As to why, I guess I've always liked stories about people reacting to outside context problems.

Folks really didn't like Trashy bringing The Walking Man the ultimate fire? I thought it was perfect.

Yoshi the loggerhead turtle was dropped off at a South African aquarium by a Japanese fishing vessel. She had an injury to her shell, and the fishermen hoped the aquarium could help. They treated her and kept her as an exhibit for 20 years. As she neared breeding age, they rehabbed her for release a...
