Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The only logical counterargument I can think of is that if even 1% of the population ends up in the hospital system it will be overrun so that people will die who would have otherwise survived. Are the lives of a very small minority worth more than the livelihoods of the majority? Are we properly a...

Re: Would you wear a mask?

Maybe just cover your N95 masks with cloth on the outside to hide the print?

Predictions on How Lockdowns Will Be Lifted

I'm curious how all of you predict things will play out after the peak is behind us. Hopefully I captured most of the main possibilities in this poll.

Re: Would you wear a mask?

Honest question since I have very little experience with masks: Other than the boxed "N95" printed on the outside of the mask, is there another obvious way to tell at a glance that the mask is N95 and not some other variety? I'm basically trying to figure out if I can spot someone wearing an N95 mas...

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? For example, Scott Adams wore an N95 mask on his live stream ...

Re: Stock scream room

I cannot see this bounce being sustainable, but of course that's why I don't trade! Completely agree. I think enough economic damage has already been done by the global shutdown that, even in a best-case scenario, it will take longer than we think to completely "re-boot" everything back to where it...

Re: YouTube: Harry Browne's The Money Show

HB's radio show is great. Craig's podcast IMO was even better. Did he leave them archived anywhere? I haven't been able to find them. This web page lists some of Craig's podcasts, but the streaming links don't seem to work: http://www.digitalpodcast.com/feeds/43771-crawling-road-money-show-podcast

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Just returned from my daily walk, and in front of one of the homes in my neighborhood I saw a police parking enforcement golf cart. You know, the kind that drives all day through neighborhoods and issues citations for literally every parking violation, no matter how minor. Never have seen one of th...

Re: Would you wear a mask?

LOL, those pics are amazing.

My wife was joking yesterday that she should make a mask using a cup from one of her old bras.

Re: Would you wear a mask?

I also ran into the problem of my homemade cloth mask gradually sliding down my nose when I talked.

Another problem is that my glasses fog up with every breath. When I went grocery shopping yesterday, I had to take off my glasses and squint my way through the store in order to see anything.
