  1. Just a word of 'warning' with regards to taking supplements. Remember that your liver and kidneys have to filter all that stuff out at some point. If you are taking a lot of supplements, make sure you are drinking enough water. None of us drink enough water.
  2. It's been great chatting with you Weaver. I'm going to go outside and work on my suntan. Have a good one !!
  3. .....And that's where we get back to the point that more could have been done sooner. Should have been done sooner. It's almost like it was 'allowed to fester' to create a situation where 'they' would have leverage over 'us'. Who's in charge right now? The most powerful country in the world was 'powerless' to stop this virus from wrecking it's economy. Even if we had stopped it in America, how would the rest of the world be fairing? The global economy would still be hurting.
  4. No more than you would get from eating 'healthy food'. I've been drinking more whiskey than I was before. One theory that was presented 'early on' was the reasoning of why this virus doesn't seem to have the same effect on kids. It was theorized that kids are constantly bombarded with 'germs' at school and their immune response is already 'amped up'. Even though they are 'less susceptible', they can be the main carriers and that's why shutting the schools down was such a good idea.
  5. WITTES: He was writing about a tax dispute between the Pennsylvania General Assembly and the family of the Penns, the proprietary family of the Pennsylvania colony who ruled it from afar. And the legislature was trying to tax the Penn family lands to pay for frontier defense during the French and Indian War. And the Penn family kept instructing the governor to veto. Franklin felt that this was a great affront to the ability of the legislature to govern. And so he actually meant purchase a little temporary safety very literally. The Penn family was trying to give a lump sum of money in exchange
  6. So it's only your sources that are acceptable? Why don't you try to decipher the words in your link and tell us in 'layman's terms' how this quote applies to this situation. Take your time. I've got plenty.
  7. I agree with not being the guinea pig. But someone has to. Any volunteers? My wife just got back from going to get tested. She has had a nagging cough for the last month and a half. Usually it's 'seasonal' and could be allergy related. Our family has been here 'locked down' since March 16th when I got back from Gold Basin (skunked). We have been observing the 'rules' and I have been the one to leave the house to go pick up groceries we ordered online. As far as I can tell there is no way my wife's test could come up positive for Covid19. Unless.... The week before I
  8. So then you're ready to 'step outside', roll the dice and see how they fall? You know, for the sake of the economy. Here's a meme that my wife and I were crackin' up about a few weeks ago. It still makes me laugh. Maybe you'll laugh too? Sorry to those who are sensitive to 'bad words'.
  9. Nature has a way of working things out. Should we 'step out of the way' and let nature take it's course?
  10. All the advantages of a DNA vaccine look good. I was waiting for the disadvantages, and I guess the lack of immune response is still the hurdle they are tripping over. Hopefully they get it worked out soon.
  11. Did you just make that up? Edit: Oh, very clever Weaver. You quoted Ben Franklin. I'm sorry but 'your' quote is out of context. https://www.npr.org/2015/03/02/390245038/ben-franklins-famous-liberty-safety-quote-lost-its-context-in-21st-century
  12. Did you actually read the link you posted? This is the first paragraph: Note: Provisional death counts are based on death certificate data received and coded by the National Center for Health Statistics as of May 1, 2020. Death counts are delayed and may differ from other published sources (see Technical Notes). Counts will be updated periodically. Additional information will be added to this site as available.
  13. Here is where I got those first numbers for those who are also confused. https://www.bing.com/covid/local/unitedstates
  14. Hmmmm.... Well that's weird, since this one says: 62,406 with 2,349 new since yesterday. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html I think 37,308 was last week. That's how fast the number have been growing. Try again.
  15. I would like to apologize for my part in causing Mr. Soloman to feel the need to defend his character. Sorry Terry, I didn't think it was going to take a turn like it did. I'm sure you had good intentions.
  16. 65,435 fatal cases in the U.S. / 1,897 more than yesterday.
  17. Which is the reason for 'social distancing'. We don't know who is still spreading the virus. We can't begin to speculate on the unknowns. We do know that 31 people died in the hospital in White Plains, NY. according to what Terry reported. Would you do it while it's 'angry' and still trying to get inside the cave? Or wait until a time that's more advantageous?
  18. I can't speak for the validity of these numbers but.... Isn't that a 4.4% fatality rate? In other words... One out of 23 patients who enter the hospital with Covid19 have died. I don't gamble, but I don't think those are great odds.
  19. What did happen to it? Why don't you tell us? Having freedom of speech does not absolve the speaker from possible ridicule or embarrassment. Not sure either of those things have happened in this case.... I for one, am glad that Mr. Soloman gave us 'his take'. I think it goes to show the level of disparity in America today with regards to Covid19.
  20. This is not a debate about immigration. They weren't alone, until the very end. Their 'family' lives with them in the studio apartment. They know 'America', they work here. Are you suggesting they don't pay taxes or deserve anything for working in this country? How much does a pine box for a mass grave cost?
  21. So pretty much everyone in this 'conversation' except me. If I understand you correctly... Since these people are not 'supposedly' American citizens, their deaths are less significant? What difference does it make where they come from? They died on American soil doing jobs that are offered to them by other Americans. Did I misunderstand you?
  22. I think I know who you're talking about. If it's the same guy.... I purchased an 800 from him about 2 years back. A few months later, I was able to trade that 800 straight across for a 4000 and assorted coils. If it had been me, in your situation, I would have just bought a hat. Take care Mac.
  23. 328 million is a lot. Maybe if we subtract out 63 million, the task would be a bit more manageable.
  24. The brand name of your rear tire is a bit ironic. Nice gold !!
