Re: Would you wear a mask?

I feel somewhat differently about masks than I did before the vax came along. It was all we had. I don’t really believe that my non-N95 cloth mask is doing that much to protect me, but if i saw a maskless person on the train coughing, I’d think that was selfish. In the main, it’s a formality, someth...

Re: Would you wear a mask?

Rode Amtrak Northeast Corridor the other day. Noted without comment: the announcement included, “If we see you’re not wearing a mask, the first time we’ll ask you to put it on. The second time, we’ll ask you to get off the train. That’s only happened once in 10,000 trips…” On the outbound trip, I no...

I ordered these, online at Quest

$330 Pay on line. Drop in to a local phlebotomist for the blood draw. In and out in 10 minutes. Results by email in a day or two.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

So, it turns out that the immune system can actually do it's job in a pinch. I had some blood drawn yesterday (results arrived in my email today) and not only do I have horrible cholesterol and good Vitamin D and average testosterone and reasonably good A1c, but also I am over the charts on Covid a...

Re: What is Your Crypto Portfolio

My crypto portfolio is kept in BRD wallet (thank you again, b in the vp), which I really like.
Sad to see they’re moving to Coinbase. I don’t like change, and I don’t want to have another experience like I did before BRD, like having a nine-word passphrase and being asked for 12 words.

Apples to oranges. Maher is a comedian and Romney is a politician. It wasn’t a serious submission, hence the “J/K” for just kidding.
