Re: Chauvin Verdict

In the aftermath of the verdict I'm getting the impression that a lot of people on the left, both politicians and the MSM, are actually disappointed. So go figure. They immediately released more reasons to riot right after. There will be riots. An excuse will emerge. The excuse is immaterial. I try...

Re: Optimal Diet

Yellowest teeth I’ve ever seen were on a guy from west Texas; I worked with him in the late 60s, early 70s when we lived in the Houston area. He said it was the result of a lot of fluoride in the water when he was growing up. He also said he had never had a cavity. He was 45 or 50 when I knew him. ...

Re: Chauvin Verdict

That's possible, but I'm an engineer and got selected to serve on a jury a couple of years ago. In that case, the attorneys seemed more interested in dismissing potential jurors who possessed bias (or the potential for bias) against their side. Mainly people who had close relationships with people ...

Re: Chauvin Verdict

I'm finding it kind of amusing that when I considered myself a Lew Rockwell ant-state type libertarian I held much the same view of the police as the left does today, only without the rioting and violence. Too bad technovelist isn't here to comment on that. I believe he was big on the idea of abolis...

Gotta stop wearing masks too. I was in some businesses over the weekend that didn't require masks.....Florida.
Still seeing masks most places I go but at Lowes they had a table with hand sanitizer and a sign that said "Clearance Sale, while supplies last".

Thought that was an encouraging sign.

Re: Vitamin D3 Cold Remedy

Gonna try this tonight because maybe what I'm thinking is an unusually severe seasonal allergy is something else.

Unfortunately I only have 2000 IU pills so I have to take 5 of them and for some reason those tiny little pills always get stuck in my throat.

Once again....the best way to end this pandemic is to stop testing. Stop it all.
That's what they finally did with H1N1. Doubt it will happen with COVID. Can you imagine how the MSM would scream if their fear porn was taken away?
