Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

That math looks as dubious as 6.93 does. That's basically 117,000 in the first 4 weeks. Is that what you're saying? I made that number up. :D Actually, it was 48,767 in the first four weeks, 100,000 in the first 8 weeks (by May 22). So about 36.5% in the first 4 weeks, about 75% in the first 8 week...

Re: 2020 General Election

My thought on Kanye West running if he really does it is that he wants to help Trump. He is a Trump fan. My thought is that he may think having a Black guy run would move some Black votes to a third Party candidate. If that's what he's thinking, though, I don't think it'll work.

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

I don't think the demographics matter. Also, I think that testing frequency is likely to rise as infection rate rises. I think it likely that, if more people start expressing symptoms themselves or are exposed to other people expressing symptoms, there is likely to be more testing. In other words: ...

BTW, if you look at the EU countries that have higher per capita testing rates than the United States you see the same thing as you see when you look at the EU overall. You see cases peaking in March or April then declining. There are some, such as Portugal, that show some resurgence. But nothing li...

Because more people die or have long term health effects. They’re also equated to reopening businesses. Even the dumbass governor of Texas might be starting to get it.

There's a HUGE difference between predetermined outcomes and "fake," JSO. If you think professional wrestling is "fake," just ask Owen Hart. Oh, that's right, you CAN'T.

Re: Kane Votes Against Mask Measure

There is no way I'd ever vote for a WWE professional wrestler. I mean, such a person has made his living by being a fake. Great if they make money. More power to them. But I never have understood how anybody could vote for somebody like that. Thought the same with Ventura. Why would you do that?
