Re: To Whom Would You Be Rude?

I'm generally pleasant to anyone I find myself face to face with, but there are certain people that I will go to lengths to steer clear of. Sent from my SM-J810Y using Tapatalk :nod: I'm pretty much the same way. I've also had a couple of people I've encountered where a mutual dislike occurred imme...

Re: CS Book Club, Spring 2020

Just started "The Decline and Fall of the British Empire 1781-1997" by Piers Brendon. Seems interesting so far, but the author is from England and can't spell right.

Re: What is more of a "Wasteland"?

I opted for the burbs and pee in the butt. The blighted urban neighborhoods seems like an obvious answer, but I see potential there. Maybe. But if they met their potential, they would become non blighted. Most to least "wasteland": -Blighted urban neighborhoods. -Miles of tract housing and strip ma...

Re: Old Dominion cuts wrestling

Wrestling is cool, but really an outlier sport at many schools. App still has it, but participates in the Southern Conference for it. So we never really left!

Re: WWII vs. COVID - Big Government in Action

Let's face it, the states have been more proactive in this than the federal government. :suspicious: 1. The states have been far more REactive then PROactive. 2. The states have their responsibilities, and the federal government has their responsibilities. The only problem is that an event like thi...

Re: WWII vs. COVID - Big Government in Action

Plenty of places have run out of PPE. Where? The worst hit is NYC. Cuomo a day or 2 ago said NY is ok now, but could run out in a week. Depends on how you define "run out". I've read where nurses in Michigan were issued 1 PPE mask and given a paper bag to store them in for reuse in future shifts. T...

Re: The Great Onerous Curtailing of Our Freedoms Thread

It seems like the restrictions here are about the same as elsewhere. Definitely an inconvenience, but nothing outrageous. I'm not very social, so being able to go to work, the grocery store/pharmacy/Dr.'s office and outdoors to run is all I need for the short term. I hope it doesn't turn into the lo...

Re: Coronavirus

I've said before that I honestly interpret polls whether they indicate what I wish is true or they indicate what I wish were not true. Now we have Trump doing better than he's done since February 2017 with respect to his job approval/disapproval. He's only down by 2 right now in the Real Clear Poli...

Record low? Are you really 22?

Record low adjusted for inflation. I lived through 39cent gas in the 70's.
I can buy that. :nod: I remember 29 cent gas as a kid and a free glass with 10 gallons purchased.
