Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

This is abuse!

Edit: oh. The version I'm more familiar with from a CD has the fellow walking into the wrong room, which turns out to be "abuse" where he just gets yelled at. Apparently that wasn't part of the original TV sketch.

Capital has been totally betrayed in the shale patch, it ain't coming back. Billions of dollars of capital have been incinerated.
I doubt I'm alone in having no idea what you're talking about. Could you expand on this for those of us who aren't in the oil & gas industry?

Is there an equivalent chart looking at deaths or hospitalizations? Total cases is more of a chart of how much testing is being done.

Re: Trying to make sense of PRPFX performance

PRPFX has been something of a thorn in my side when I'm trying to sell people on the PP strategy. They often do Googling and point to the performance of PRPFX as a reason not to invest. I always have to remind them that PRPFX is not the true PP. That find just annoys me. So much active management a...

Re: Sold out

I'm of the opinion that the very concept of price gouging is specious.

Re: Presidential poll

Vinny, you seem to love Hillary and can't stand Biden. Can you tell us what the differences are that you see between the two?

Re: Getting Into Linux

I'm really surprised to hear that you're into telemetry-loving Windows, Tech, rather than your-computer-belong-to-you Linux. I like the idea of Linux but the implementation is quite painful when I'm trying to do software development. And do you understand every line of code in that millions-of-line...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Police roadblock. Just like the kind you see on a Saturday night checking for drunk drivers. Except this was during the middle of the day. Speaking for myself, I've never seen a roadblock like that. I've never heard of losing your license for having a cell phone in a cupholder or $1000 tickets for ...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

The three hosts could not restrain themselves from outbursts of laughter as it was being played. Like how Fauci couldn't contain his laughter and had to cover his face after Trump cracked the joke about the "Deep State Department" during the recent press briefing? https://media.giphy.com/media/JmD9...
