Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

This is the part that always angers me, not just in the CV world. Why don't people who smoke or are morbidly obese pay more for health insurance? Do they not? Every time I've applied for health insurance, the insurance company wants to know about all kinds of things like that. Life insurance too. L...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

So what if the hospitals are overwhelmed? So what if there aren't enough ventilators for the small, overwhelmingly co-morbid population who needs them, when we know that as many as 98 percent of those who end up on vents are going to die anyway?

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The data from New York is showing that only 1.8 percent of CV-19 deaths did NOT involve a serious co-morbidity. https://www.reddit.com/r/COVID19/comments/ftlqqx/nyc_health_only_18_of_deaths_in_new_york_city/ And for this the entire world economy has been shut down?

And I don't think it's a bad idea to incorporate the requirement that you are not contagious into international travel. *And for that matter, Real ID which will limit/track your ability to travel ev...

Re: Baseball?

I had never heard of Aaron Judge until I googled him just now. Not surprising as I grew up as a huge Cubs fan, and I can't even name 3 current Cubs off the top of my head let alone players for the Yankees.

Here's a thought: aliexpress.com--the wholesale supplier of every fly-by-night online seller. Here's an example-- 50 rolls of toilet paper for $98. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000823585033.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.38da6158p3oTiX&s=p&ad_pvid=202004021654212102027897697600019797509_1&algo_...
