That would appear to mean we have very low homicide and murder rates. But our current murder rate is up to five times ...

Re: An Undiscussed Pandemic As Likely As COVID

Also somewhat anecdotal, but I believe violence was less in the ‘wild west’ of the late 1800s when most people were armed than today with all the gun regulations. I could not accept that belief without some facts being presented. My belief is that life was definitely far more brutal in the "wild we...

The only time I remember seeing someone black out in front of my eyes was the result of Everclear. It's an impressive beverage. If by impressive you mean causes violent vomiting and horrible hangovers if you drink too much of it, then yes, it's an impressive beverage. :P That’s an old fashioned com...

The aftermath of a real nuclear war would likely be far worse than any horror film cooked up by Hollywood. If they start tossing around the big bombs, I hope the first one lands right on my house.

Wish I could take credit for this jewel, but I can't. . . "There's a spike in CoVid cases because they're doing more testing. If they did more IQ tests, there'd be a spike in morons." Maddy, that may be the quote of the day, week, month, year. You get full credit for sharing the jewel with us! O0

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I've pondered this myself and am really quite stumped about how--in light of all of the actual facts--people are still running around acting like the end of the world is nigh.
