Re: Berned Out

Stocks higher on news that Bernie drops out of race. I guess stocks think Sanders would have been bad for the economy! ::) Wow! I wonder how long the boost will last. As I'm listening to him speak live on C-Span I'm reminded at how overjoyed I am that he no longer has an kind of formal national pla...

Re: YouTube Junkie

Nice for you that your world allows that. In my world, if I don't text, it takes hours if not days to get a response by email.

I can get everything else done that a cell phone can do better or faster or both in some other way. ESPECIALLY when I am home.

Re: YouTube Junkie

Vinny, you and my GF must be the only 2 people left on earth that still use ipods rather than their phones for music. 2001 called and wants their music player back.

Re: Predictions on How Lockdowns Will Be Lifted

I almost chose the lift/reimpose option, but I think unrest will win out.

Re: Would you wear a mask?

I see some people walking around with N95 masks. That really ticks me off. In some cases, maybe those N95 masks are used or the material is slightly expired, so hospitals can't accept them as donations but the owners can still wear them? ...

Re: Predictions for covid case count 12:01 AM 3/22/2020

There are a lot of variables to be sure, like increases in test availability, but it looks like the wave effect is real. Are you still predicting the l...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

This thing just keeps getting more real by the day. I didn't realize that Vancouver had become the Fo...
