    covid-19

    aaand now I need to check the info on receiving a 2 dose vaccine after already having the J&J 1-shot.
  3. Deliberately messing with a system as complex as the atmosphere seems like a TERRIBLE idea. The consequences for getting something wrong could be catastrophic and I just don’t believe we understand it well enough to be considering something like that. Hell, we can’t even predict the weather reliably.
  4. He'd hang them back up on the trophy wall in half a nano second if it looked like Trump would do well again and he could be vice.
  5. They were not allowed to be in there. If security personnel ushered them in then that doesn't make it legal. It makes those security personnel culpable. oh, and lets not forget the people beating on cops, stealing stuff and shitting in the rotunda. Or do you just do that on every tour where you're from?
  6. ah. Although I wouldn't have been entirely surprised.
  7. Someone from here was in the storming of the capitol?
  8. I can actually believe paying to decrypt the files, double checking to make sure you’ve got any critical data and then restoring from known good backups. Because a criminal hacking organization would 100% be on the level about giving you back access.
  9. They were saying the same thing 5 months ago https://nypost.com/2020/12/05/covid-19-could-cause-erectile-dysfunction-doc-says/?fbclid=IwAR0KAVji4oKoQBjbdB5x0OoZwEOTRpC6QbxbLfUEhbGQDc8anrQTnS1HlWM Didn't get any traction then, won't now.
  10. I saw a video of a woman filling PLASTIC BAGS with it and putting it in her trunk. To be fair, she did double bag, so that's totally cool.
  11. Aw. No SHTF until the next blip.

    It's not surprising they're still behind Trump - he's shown them a whole new way to work and proven that they can get away with it next time. Direct communication, lies, hyperbole, fear and showmanship are more valuable than statesmanship and experience when all you're interested in is power.
  13. I have too much other stuff to get stressed by to worry about what happens here. Sounds like you need a drinking partner. Pretty sure I've got some good Plantation rum around here. You're in the Caribbean aren't you?
  14. Have you been drinking? Nothing in my (or YOUR) life stops if you can't instantly access this website. At least, I don't think so? Getting a flat? It actually changes what I need to be doing. I typically don't just go out for a drive just to pick grammatical fights with assholes and shout my opinion at everyone I pass.
  15. It honestly doesn't bother me. I can get shit done rather than posting here. There's nothing so important that I feel that by being delayed the ability to post about it for a day that my world changes, even one iota. YMMV.
  16. That's a joke of a suggestion. It's straight out of fantasy. What sfzombie is suggesting is the absolute best possible outcome. You have to consider what happens if the throw misses. Or doesn't distract the assailant enough. Now you've got the same situation with someone getting stabbed and I guarantee you that every single one of you would be on here absolutely CRUCIFYING the officer when that bodycam footage was released.
  17. Irrelevant to this situation. We're dealing with what actually happened, and what should happen in America. Cops aren't going to be disarmed here, ever, so it's a pointless conversation to compare a completely different policing and cultural structure. A better question would be 'did the cop follow procedure, and if we think those procedures are wrong how should they be changed?' Given that the police force will always be armed in the US, how are the procedures written for an armed police force in a way that protects both the civilians and AND the police to the best ability.
  18. There’s been a shit amount of armchair quarterbacking going on around this case before any evidence was seen. Including in here. Your post sums up my feelings on it, having seen the video. Tragic but justifiable use of force.

    covid-19

    Dude. A year ago you were a poster who I thought was worth reading - your posts were generally well constructed and thought out. But you've lost the plot on this vaccine stuff to the point where in my mind you're now fringe-lunatic on the subject. You've doubled down on your misunderstanding of the science for the past 7 months or so, with no sign of stopping. Look at what you're typing. In the same paragraph you go from 'half of americans have taken the vaccine' (which is demonstrably wrong with even the simplest google search), to 'literally the entire population has taken it'. You're not even consistent in your attempt to get your crazy across. Science uses facts, not hyperbole. I get it - you want people vaccinated. So do I. But this isn't the way to get your message across. I don't want an argument. This is my one attempt to try and get you to see that you're not in a good place when it comes to posting on this subject. If you choose not to believe me, so be it.

    I suspect they did, but won’t admit to it - at least not to their neighbors. I’ve heard of a load of that going on.
  21. I don’t envy the job of the prison warden and guards trying to make sure he does.
  22. I'm no lawyer. He said it was the 'Merger' doctrine? I'm looking at the message now and he says ' he may or may not get sentenced on all three charges' and 'if one offense is essentially a lesser included offense of another, you can't be sentenced on both' and that it comes down to the statutory elements of the charges which may be something the lawyers and judge hash out during sentencing. If you know the details of why he's wrong let me know and I'll pass it on, but I'm not just going to say 'some dudes on the internet say you're wrong' to him.
  23. He may well only get sentenced on one charge. If someone is convicted of theft and armed robbery as two charges, for example, they only get charged for the armed robbery one as theft is a subset of that and you can’t be charged twice for the same crime. Double jeopardy and all. At least that’s how a lawyer friend explained it to me.
  24. 20 years in jail or packing tandems? Tough call.
  25. Really? You want that on you? Rather you than me, Joe.
