Feel free to share any conspiracy theories you have, or have heard about, that relate to the novel coronavirus in some way. Here are a few I've heard: The virus is engineered and was i...

Have no idea who Kyrie Eliison is. Kyrie Irving for certain I know but not this other person.
It’s an ancient Greek liturgical prayer meaning “Lord, have mercy.”

Re: How do you think the housing market will be affected by COVID-19?

I got a video update from my mortgage lender yesterday. He told all his current and former clients that a lot of homeowners are currently looking into forbearance right now. Hot topic.

So it sounds like home values may be headed down in the near-term.

I’m guessing the actual number of infected Americans is at least 10x higher than the tested and confirmed number, so... rise and shine?

Re: I shared fake news and feel like an idiot

Is sharing fake news really that big of a sin in the modern world?

We’re practically drowning in fake news. So we’re bound to swallow a few mouthfuls of it as we flail around to stay afloat.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Seems like all know who this "Till Lindermann" is? A few minutes ago reading it in this forum is the first I've ever encountered the name. I didn't know the name. Had to look it up. But I'm definitely familiar with his band (Rammstein), so once I saw that he's their lead singer it immediately click...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Whether we decide to focus on producing more tests, treatments, or ventilators, why does Trump need to convince companies via Twitter to help? Why not invoke wartime powers to forcibly convert certain factories immediately? This pandemic is a world war with a virus, is it not? As to why he doesn't ...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

One thing Trump seems to be doing really well during this pandemic is recognizing the importance of hope and psychology as part of our overall strategy. He seems to be doing his best to give at least a glimmer of hope to the American people regarding the return to work and daily life. This isn't jus...
