Re: Solar & Survival?

I have a couple Waka Waka lights that I've used for both light and recharging a cell phone. They work pretty well, and the company donates one to a shithole of your choosing when you buy one, which is very cool of them.

Re: Help Find Pro-Gun, Low Property Tax Regi

Tennessee is modified no-income tax (6% on interest/dividends), but will get rid of that by 2021, but they're also a low property tax state the last time I looked into it (I was thinking about moving there a few years ago). Seemed very cheap everywhere except Nashville (I was looking in the eastern ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Well, three out of the three times I tried to switch on NPR today and yesterday, they were focusing on how in the U.S., African-Americans represent a disproportionately large % of the deaths from coronavirus. Not a surprise, because of diabetes stats, etc. But the way they talk about it, I feel lik...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I don't mean to belabor the point, but I'm really not understanding this position. If you take the entire CoVid critical care population and subtract out the people who are going to die regardless of whether they receive the best hospital care money can buy--then subtract out the very elderly and t...

Re: EE Bonds = 3.5% 20-Year Treasury

I have some that my grandparents bought me when I was younger, but I haven't looked at them much lately. Maybe I should.

Re: Podcasts

But as far as history podcasts go, Darryl Cooper's " Martyrmade Podcast " multi-parter on the Israel/Palestine conflict (called "Fear and Loathing in New Jarusalem) is possibly the best History Podcast I've ever heard.

Re: Would you wear a mask?

Oh, I guess I don't know much about them. They're all wearing ones like this: https://the-drive.imgix.net/https%3A%2F%2Fapi.thedrive.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2020%2F03%2F23423432.jpg%3Fquality%3D85?w=1440&auto=compress%2Cformat&ixlib=js-1.4.1&s=32bc4569fbe6121fdf3c1422652b3f50 Are there non-N95 ...
