Re: What Does Life Look Like For You Now?

With all this weight lifting talk, just curious: Who here has lost or gained more than 3 pounds? I consider 2 lbs to be insignificant due to salt intake variation and whether or not a recent poop has taken place, March 17th was the last day I've been off my property. Do my daily weights and fluctua...

Re: Healthcare jobs, which are best options for career change

Is she crazy? No one is hiring and layoffs/pay cuts are happening everywhere. The hospitals and outpatient centers & practices of all kinds are going broke. Pugchief gave us a nice inside look into what's happening to his small dental practice. Plus, in the era of EHRs and oppressive regulation, ev...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Yeah, it's difficult to justify qualifying a liquor store as being "essential" while deeming any other business to be non-essential. I was a bit surprised, though, by the news of Georgia allowing restaurants to reopen. I would have figured that restaurants would have been one of the *last* business...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The whole concept of "essential businesses" is so maddening. Who is to say what's essential? In Michigan, gardening supplies were not deemed essential but liquor was. In New York, physical therapy sites are not essential but liquor stores are. ... I see nothing wrong so far. O0 No seriously, that a...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Corto, it's tough to tell what's real/fake nowadays, but from what I've read people are being classified as coronavirus deaths even if they died of something else but tested positive for coronavirus. I'm taking the statistics with a grain of salt. I think Sophie touched on this when a large number ...
