Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

But at that point drinking it was serving a goal. Gasp, I hardly ever drink anymore. Beer in the early days was a means to an end, like Vinny states. There are a few beers I am ok with (Guinness, Blue Moon and Shock Top), but I will not go out and buy beer for myself, only if we are giving a party....

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Didn't you go to UIUC Corto? All we drank there was Everclear in Hawaiian Punch, or beer. Although as a freshman, I do remember ordering Tequila Sunrises, Whiskey Stone Sours and Sloe Gin Fizzes in the bars. Ick. Yep. Everclear. Ahhh, yet another night, that if I did now, I would most certainly hav...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Namely, too few cases means it's more likely that Trump will win. Well, that's not going to happen. I am curious what people will make of Europe getting hit with a big second wave. I assume masking in general is probably much more adhered to in most countries than the US? If so, what's the reason? ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I think part of the issue is hospital capacity. This is a legitimate concern if many recoveries are due to improving treatment options. Would Trump or Christie have lived if they hadn't had very prompt hospital treatment? That's a good question. If the case numbers climb to a point that prevents tr...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Why is everyone so fixated on test numbers here then if they are so fraught with problems? Why not just look at excess death stats? Can't we compare years worth of data and compare to 2020 to give us a pretty good picture of what is happening? Yes...WHY? Why are news outlets so focused on cases? If...

game is rigged against him.
He's built a lot of that rigging with his attitude and attacks, which is the main reason I did not vote for him this time.

I am not the only person in the US affected by how he operates and have changed their mind from 2016.
