Re: Increasing The Odds Of High-Quality Longevity

75? That just gives me 4 more years.

AFAIC right now my benchmark is when I can no longer wipe my own ass.

Re: I had no idea peaceful protests could be so expensive!

This is another very sad story of a "mostly peaceful protest". Apparently this man named Jake Gardner chose suicide over being the next George Zimmerman. https://www.indystar.com/story/news/nation/2020/09/20/jake-gardner-james-scurlock-shooting-omaha-nebraska-suicide/5848139002/ Gardner shot and kil...

Re: Increasing The Odds Of High-Quality Longevity

My parents lived to 92 (Dad) and 98 (Mom). Neither one had Alzheimer's despite high carb diets with non-diet coke being their favorite drink and a bowl of ice cream every night before bed. Grandparents on both sides had the same longevity with my paternal grandmother dying a few days before her 100t...

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I see that Biden has promised to nominate a black woman. So there you have it. Are the Republicans going to continue to perpetuate systemic racism by putting a white woman on the court in a seat that should rightfully belong to a woman of color? I guess it wouldn't be 2020 if the race wasn't all abo...

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I think a confirmation hearing would be a very entertaining and enlightening spectacle for the American people to watch just before the election. It will be interesting to see how they are planning on sliming Amy Comey Barrett if she is nominated, which it's sounding like she will be. She has adopte...

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Does anybody here believe for one minute that if the Dems were in control they wouldn't be doing exactly what the Republicans are? Of course they would. They're all politicians and hypocrisy is the name of the game. Exactly. Shame on them for what they would probably do. Speaking of hypocrisy I jus...

Re: Woke content

There is industry chatter that the Netflix pipeline of productions was stopped a few months ago after the George Floyd killing. The reason - to re-shoot scenes for introduction of "woke" content and diversity. This comes at the same time as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced ...

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

According to NPR, there are at least 5 republicans that will not vote until after Jan 20. We're just a few hours in. I'm not buying that NPR has a hard count either way before the bargaining and arm twisting even starts. We'll see. Agreed. According to Tucker, NPR was also reporting that her dying ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

@Sophie: Now that weather is getting colder and people will be moving inside, would setting up a fan to circulate air be helpful or make things worse? I don't know the answer to that but I wonder if the ultra violet gizmo the A/C repairman tried to sell me when I had my yearly maintenance done migh...

Re: When someone's opinion differs from yours...

I once closed my accounts at Bank of America when I saw photos of the executives sitting in luxury suites at the Super Bowl after they took bail out money from the government in the TARP program. Don't think I'd do that just because of a difference in opinion however, especially when he's expressing...
