Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I went into a big chain hospital today. No masking requirements for entry or otherwise. I gather that this is still not the case in some US states? In my part of Western Massachusetts it is always masks for anything medically related. I think that might be the only places where that is the case.

Re: New Ideas about Sleep

There was an AOM podcast on sleep last year where the guy basically says to forget about setting bedtimes, just wake up at the same time every day. So what I've been doing is setting an alarm every day, and if I'm not asleep in time to get 7.5+, I'll stay awake long enough to make it a <6 hour slee...

Re: Tucker Carlson: Biden is Done

Re: Silver

I didn’t realize until today that you can get the silver Britannia with either Queen Elizabeth or King Charles on the obverse . I think the King Charles ones are pre-orders. You keep giving me vocabulary lessons. From the context I thought I'd determined what it meant but I saw I was wrong once I r...

Re: Renewable electricity sources are now a no-brainer

I think you're over-analyzing. :) What you end up with is never going to perfectly match your calculations and predictions. At a certain point you just have to take the plunge, if it's something you actually want to do. My take? - Get a 6 kW system for a bit of wiggle room (always build in wiggle r...

I assume every one of his "entertainment shows" are as laden with this one with half-truths, lies, exaggerations? Thereby rendering it of no intellectual value other than whatever entertainment value one can derive from it? That's it? We don't get any analysis, facts, or even elaboration, to suppor...
