Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Sophie, I'm fascinated that your sister, the ER doc, is still caught up in the hysteria, notwithstanding (1) the low mortality statistics in comparison to the seasonal flu and other illnesses that we consider just a part of life, (2) the staggering amount of misrepresentation and flat-out fraud that...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The lawyer's office where I stopped in yesterday had several signs taped to the front desk that read "This office respects the ADA and HIPAA. Our staff will not be wearing masks." I was glad to see it. One thing I keep wondering: For those people who insist that the sky is falling (I'm envisioning y...

Re: Mods silently deleting posts?

Here it is, posted to the forum on Friday, January 10, 2020: " My experiences here as well as in real life during the Trump era have left me fundamentally convinced that you must give no quarter to trolls, fascists, and any others with no respect for their fellow man or ability to hold rational disc...

Re: Mods silently deleting posts?

Well we caught a former moderator red-handed some six months ago. He decided that my conservative libertarian viewpoint was annoying and deleted my entire posting history. I maintain, to this day, that he did not act alone. That's the first place I'd look. Maddy, I'm not sure what it would mean for...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Seems like there could be a business opportunity here. I don't know if machines like this already exist, but imagine a small box with a glass cover that allows customers to see clearly inside of it. Any time there's a cash transaction, the customer would drop their cash into a slot in the top of th...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

My best friend died just over a week ago after her cancer, previously in remission for two years, returned with a vengeance. I was the closest thing she had to family, and I had her power of attorney. More on that later, because I learned some really important things about planning for incapacity. A...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

In what other context do educated, critically-thinking people debate the details of a proposition whose credibility has been strained to the breaking point? Does it make any sense at all to argue over whether the n of a particular study should have been 500 rather than 450 when the principal investi...

Re: The Permanent Supplement Regime

Good on you Maddie! Here's a substitute for your English muffin: microwave mug bread. Melt 1 Tbsp butter or bacon fat in a mug. Add 1 Tbsp coconut flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda, a pinch of salt, and a dollop of heavy cream (maybe a tablespoon?). Mix together, then crack in an egg and mix well. Optiona...
