Re: A different kind of preparedness: scientific literacy

This is a great post, because I think a huge problem that is at very least equal to science deniers, is those that have blind faith in what people in positions of authority tell them is "The Science". It's becoming as useful a tool for political manipulation as religion is or ever was. I see T-shirt...

Texas has dropped mask mandates and re-opened 100% Controversial, for sure. But....we're heading into the warmer months, where sunlight is more available to kill viruses, people are outdoors, and warmer weather seems to slow the spread (some politicians in Florida seem to be taking credit for the f...

Re: The Stand (2020)

Finally found the 9th episode, and it was basically superfluous. Actually, all it did was totally cement that Alex Skarsgard's Randall Flagg was way weaker, more insecure, more impulsive, desperate, and less controlled than the original. Like if the original Randall Flagg was someone insidious like ...

Re: The Stand (2020)

My GF and I have been waiting on the 9th and final episode that was supposed to drop February 11th. Searching online, it looks like it was supposed to be a freshly written epilogue and update. I guess the show sucked so much they just gave up and didn't release it. Seriously this was worse than just...

How many plan to get it when offered? I have no issues and wife and I will get it when it comes around. IF not why? I have been offered the vaccine twice and declined each time by substituting others more in genuine need of it(due to impaired immune systems) than me. I do not want to cut the line e...

I'm still as of this time watching The Stand. Don't be like me.

Well, apparently The Stand jumped the shark. For those of you that have read the novel and/or watched the original mini-series... Trashcan Man is now an autistic/mentally challenged young man in his early 20s (possibly late teens). According to most critics, the character is woefully OVER acted as ...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

My girlfriend got the first dose of the Moderna vaccine yesterday. She was marveling at how not only are there no side effects, her arm didn't even hurt.

Her arm hurts a little today.

I am diligently monitoring her forehead for the formation of a second butthole, so far we're clear.

The part of the episode I watched was dismal. Whoopi Goldberg as Mother Abagail (i.e. the character blessed by God to lead the good group) is such a miscast role that it is pathetic. My bestie and I are not digging it either. Other than adding cell phones and mentioning Instagram once, this series ...

Re: multitool

I've had a Leatherman Wave for maybe 15 years. Absolutely great tool. However, I'm now partial to the Leatherman MUT. I think it's even more awesome. I know Braxton EDCs and senselessly abuses his MUT like every day for the past 3 years, so maybe he can chime in.
