Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

We were deemed essential, because we do military and networking equipment. Even so, the CEO gave people the option to work at home, which about 80% of the people have been doing.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Even so, the CEO gave people the option to work at home, which about 80% of the people have been doing. (I come in every day) But it is coming to a head. He needs/wa...

Re: Xanax please

Par for the course. We should expect it from him. The crazy uncle who says crazy stuff, but just so happens to be president.

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Any Stargate SG1 fans out there? When Trump talked about disinfectant and/or UV light in the body, I thought of the Go'auld Pain Stick.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

What do you describe as "healthy"? If I had to pick one thing, I suppose a BMI not in the obese range.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I assume most have seen the NY antibody testing results, showing about 10x more people have already had it than have tested positive? https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/23/new-york-antibody-study-estimates-13point9percent-of-residents-have-had-the-coronavirus-cuomo-says.html With math, that means the curr...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

The graphic below I posted in the CV discussion as well. I had thought maybe this was partially because of wanting to derail Trump. But the more I think about it, I bet a lot has to do with people in power not wanting to be wrong. Seeing a projection, scrambling to try to make things happen to deal ...

Re: What Does Life Look Like For You Now?

Life is strangely the same, except for:

--My daughters being home all the time
--Not being able to get samples at Costco
