Re: Is Denninger right about the coronavirus?

But you know, he uses too much bold, italics, and all caps so... And his bare-metal HTML website with low-res animated smiley GIFs is straight out of Geocities circa 1995! Bare-metal HTML can be a valid minimalist design choice, but when combined with the various combinations of bold, italics, unde...

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

And as to why the cases come in waves, I think that's because they are the results of mass infection events like the jamming of thousands of people into a small space for hours on March 15th (https://ktla.com/news/coronavirus/some-u-s-airports-jammed-as-returning-americans-wait-to-be-screened-for-t...

I believe I saw a more current photo of you, tech, when you linked to an award for three-misses (not be confused with the Mormon project, Three Missus). That was you, wasn't it?

Corto - that's it! That's the guy I was thinking of.
Yes that’s me.

I am also guessing this is a late, late 70s, early 80s picture?

Vinny
I think it is earlier than that actually.

Or just add it to cash.
Yes, and rebalance when you hit a band.

Re: Presidential poll

I will never vote for a Democrat again until and unless the Democrat party is completely demolished and rebuilt as a pro-American party. This would be a cool development. It certainly would. And I think it is possible after what I expect to be an epic disaster for them this November. I think a more...

Re: Internet Comments

Pseudo-anonymity and not having to look a person in the face certainly enables a lot of this behaviour. I once read a book about online behaviour and I believe there's actually a name for this: online identity disassociation. We should all do a test. Who'd be willing to put a real picture of themse...

Re: Internet Comments

I'm sure a lot of you read Zero Hedge, Fox News and other sites where comments are allowed. If you think these types of comments are only found on conservative sites, you aren't paying attention. The internet is a wasteland riddled with toxic comments from anonymous trolls of all types. Agreed, but...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Boris Johnson says that China has perhaps dozens of times more cases than claimed. I wouldn't be surprised if that were actually the case. Given the tenuous relationship between the Chinese government and the truth. https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-boris-johnsons-government-reportedly-fu...

Re: Presidential poll

Can we please switch to the alternate timeline to the one in which Harry Browne became President? He would have been very good. Smart, sensible, very quick on the draw. But as big a fan of Harry's as I am, if he had been subjected to the same constant attacks that Trump has, I'm not sure he could h...
