Re: Help Find Pro-Gun, Low Property Tax Regi

I honestly think you should look at a nice suburb or exurb of Houston or Dallas. I understand the property tax thing though. +1. Property taxes are high, but you'll also be able to find a house closer to the bottom of your range than the top. So in absolute dollars it may balance out even before yo...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

And, now today we are hearing that this virus started incubating and spreading in New York City in January and the New York City flu origins were from Europe. You're misinterpreting...they're saying, based on analysis of viral mutations, that the virus arrived in NYC from Europe. Presumably, it arr...

Re: Kat Klub

Now comparing yours to my Mink it seems they have different shaped heads. And, yours has the shape of some distinctive breed, like a Siamese? Or, not. But certainly some breed. NOT a common cat. He's a stray that showed up and adopted us a few years ago, so I'm not sure about the breed. But now tha...

Re: Kat Klub

Ah, these iPhone (and other smartphone) cameras really have gotten great, haven't they? I have an iPhone XS, but it felt too big for me to comfortably use one-handed, so I switched back to a smaller iPhone SE. But I think I'm going to move back up to a newer model to get the better camera, because ...

Re: Forum Members with COVID-19

I suffered a sore throat and cough with a bit of chest tightness while feeling really hot. But I never had a temperature, and eventually I noticed that it usually happened after dinner. It turns out I have a few food allergies I wasn't aware of. Benadryl did the trick. And now that I'm staying in an...

Re: Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories

The whole hydroxychloroquine episode is actually nothing new as far as medicine goes. Something comes up that is promising based on lab and some crappy/anecdotal/observational clinical studies, so you do a clinical trial on it - preferably more than one, so that you can show the results are reprodu...

Re: Where do TIPS fit into the PP?

So why would anyone ever prefer cash to a TIPS? Because a nominal bond always pays more in interest than TIPS of the same maturity. Everything has a tradeoff. The tradeoff with TIPS is that they pay lower interest rates compared to nominal bonds. That difference in rates represents the anticipated ...

Re: Would you wear a mask?

I do find the mask-wearing skills of our political leaders pretty amusing.

Re: Predictions for covid case count 12:01 AM 3/22/2020

I heard that non-COVID ER visits have gotten a lot scarcer. Everyone's wondering, what happened to all the strokes and heart attacks? It's weird. But I guess some people are just riding it out at home because the idea of going to an ER packed with COVID patients is not so appealing. I've been track...

Almost every politician is a narcissist. Trump just doesn't bother trying to hide his narcissism.
True. But other recent presidents didn't hide it either. People just chose to ignore it depending on their political preferences.

Obama references himself 392 times in one speech
