  1. I haven't seen a cathode ray tube in ages. Why all the fuss just now?
  2. August 13 is the date. Waiting. . . .

    Maybe not Einstein. https://quoteinvestigator.com/2017/03/23/same/ And quantum mechanics suggests that doing the exact same thing and getting different results is quite likely. Heisenberg would probably agree.

    covid-19

    Very irritating that vaccinated people are bearing the burden of trying to protect their fellows by wearing masks, keeping distances, etc. while unvaccinated idiots prance around, publicly burn masks, wave anti-vaccine signs, conduct disinformation campaigns, refuse to mandate mitigation measures, and blatantly discourage anyone from taking any action to protect themselves, their kids, their relatives, their friends, or their fellow Americans. I have zero sympathy for the unvaccinated who are ending up in the hospital whining and full of regret. But there is a small percentage of vaccinated people who are getting sick because the unvaccinated are allowing the virus and its mutants to continue to circulate freely because it is finding plenty of unvaccinated hosts.

    I am shocked, I tell you.
  7. Darwin doesn't need any help from me. Governors DeSantis, Ducey, Abbott et al. are doing just fine.

    Fascinating that the very folks who are most adamant that the government should not tell them what to do wrt masks and vaccines ("my body, my choice") are for the most part the same ones who are adamant that the government should tell a pregnant woman what she may or may not do with her body.
  9. This urban Chicagoan living in a 90 year old home and oftentimes driving a 76 year old MG looks forward to having storage capacity. (At least my house is newer than the one next door, which is 120 years old).
  10. Can anyone explain why conservatives only worry about the debt and deficits when a Democrat is president? Anyone? Bueller?

    Florida reported a record number of COVID cases and 30% of all cases nationally. So moRon DeSantis decides to overrule local school boards and outlaw mask mandates in schools.
  12. The USA has been in debt continuously since Jackson was president. The sky has yet to fall.

    Those of us who have behaved responsibly by wearing masks and, since the vaccines became available, getting vaccinated, should not be held hostage by those who can’t be bothered to do the same, or who are too deluded by misinformation or desire to "own the libs". . The more inconvenient we make life for the recklessly unvaccinated, the better our own lives will be. Time for some serious shaming. As far as I'm concerned, Darwin can take the recklessly or willfully unvaccinated and good riddance.
  14. The Great Lakes are at record high levels. No water shortages here and lots of nice lawns.
