    Damn. I never thought I'd say this, but: I wish I could see what Ron posted.

    If they never infected rational people, and stayed home and prayed instead of seeking medical help, it could work.
  3. Does that particular Wally World include a grocery? Colorado went into full stay-at-home mode yesterday, but groceries are exempt.
  4. Even Brazilian drug traffickers have more common sense than that: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/25/brazil-rio-gangs-coronavirus

    So if a reporter researching a story gets information from a source that proves to be false, he should still report it, because to do otherwise would be censorship, right?
  6. TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) was signed into law on October 3, 2008. Now think about who signed it.
  7. Have you ever taken a math course in which they taught what the slope of a graph means?

    In fact, my preferred gloves (for greasy mechanical work) are the Harbor Freight vinyl ones. They cost less than nitrile or latex. They don't have the latex allergy issue. And most important for me: They are available in XL size to fit my hands. BTW I just noticed today that the postal carrier was wearing nitrile gloves when she delivered my mail.
  9. Well, people here keep feeding him, so he keeps coming back.

    Here is what an actual leader sounds like in a health crisis, (as opposed to a mentally-impaired clown):
  11. That is a bogus scenario, that I have heard too many times. I have never had such a situation in decades of driving, nor have I ever heard of anyone else experiencing it. The car should do what any rational driver would do: Stay in your lane and apply the brakes. Swerving would be done only IF there was insufficient distance for braking, AND there was no empty lane to swerve into. A human driver has no way of knowing the ages/genders of the occupants of nearby vehicles, nor would an autonomous car.

    And a reminder: This is from a Republican.
  13. You're driving a load of TP??? Aren't you worried about being hijacked?

    What is more likely? a) No one told Trump of the limitations of the CDC testing. b) Trump was just spouting off bullshit that sounded good in the moment, just like the other 16,000+ lies he spewed before. Think: Occam's razor.

    Ahhh...that explains it!
  17. Here is an article from The Verge, published yesterday, on just that topic: https://www.theverge.com/2020/3/23/21187076/cruise-line-industry-bailout-trump-coronavirus-us-companies-tax

    How the hell is that relevant to the fact Trump said “anyone who wants a test can get a test”??? You would have us believe that a false promise can be defended by proving the promise was false??? What kind of logic is that???

    But there is also the certification process for any medical equipment. I'm thinking Tesla may be acting as a subcontractor for an existing design for an existing mfgr with certification.

    The governor also noted that Tesla chief executive has also made good on his promise to provide 1,000 ventilators to address an anticipated shortage in intensive-care units. The ventilators, Newsom said, were delivered in Los Angeles. Source: https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/03/23/coronavirus-california-needs-50000-more-hospital-beds-governor-says/ Huh? How the hell did he do that so quickly?
