Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Do they have pre-determined names for variants in alphabetical order like they do hurricanes? If so, we're up to O and there are only 10 left before they start using numbers. You may count 11, but I read somewhere that the letter X would be ommitted because it would be the "Xi" variant and they didn...

Re: Would you wear a mask?

If there was one good thing about the masks, lockdowns, forced closures of "non-essential" businesses, and mandatory vaccines it's that it seems to have reminded a lot of people of the quote from Benjamin Franklin, " “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, d...
