The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“The Bloomberg campaign’s hiring managers understood that potential applicants for field staff positions like the plaintiffs would be motivated to work for Mike Bloomberg 2020 because of their interest in working on the general election to defeat Donald Trump,” Alexis Sklair, Nathaniel Brown and Sterling Rettk vs. Mini-Mike Bloomberg.


Quote II

Bachelors know more about women than married men; if they didn't they'd be married too. H. L. Mencken


Quote III

When your refrigerator goes out under quarantine and your supplies begin to rot, do you really need another rant from Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.)—or do you rather need a St. Michael Smith and St. Uriel Mendoza to appear out of nowhere as the archangels from Home Depot to wheel up and connect a new one?Victor Davis Hanson


Quote IV


"We absolutely – as a lot of people in New Zealand do – consider alcohol as essential,"

"But stress drinking is not advised: Don't use alcohol to manage stress,"Linda Cooper, president of the Waitākere Licensing Trust

Whatever happened to rugged individualism? Suck it up Buttercup San Juan County Sheriff’s Department.

San Juan County, Colorado, Bans Backcountry
The San Juan County Sheriff’s Department issues a stern warning to all backcountry recreation users. The San Juan County Sheriff’s Department is prohibiting recreationalists from backcountry activities in the County due to the limited Medical, Emergency and Search and Rescue Services available currently due to the Coronavirus COVID 19 crisis.

The SJC Sheriff has also issued a policy/order prohibiting all but essential services in San Juan County. US HWY 550 is open to DRIVE THROUGH traffic and San Juan County residents only. Vehicles parked on the passes, and on County roads not registered in San Juan County Colorado are subject to fines and towing. This applies to all San Juan County Colorado lands and County roads, as backcountry skiers and snowmobilers unnecessarily increase the potential for emergency and medical team response.

On Wednesday March 18th, San Juan County and the Town of Silverton declared a Local Disaster Emergency Declaration due to the spread of COVID 19 in the State of Colorado.

Entrepreneurship is alive and well.

Picture the scene: a sickly young man lies prone on his bed. The mask on his face is doing little to stop the coronavirus from running amok with his immune system. His prospects look grim.

While he groans, a nurse walks in. She doesn’t look like stereotypical nurses look and her nursing uniform seems a lot shorter than regulation length. Apparently she has the cure for his disease.

What follows next are visuals that require a porn banjo for the soundtrack.

This is a real scene from a real clip on the popular adult entertainment website Pornhub, which in some countries has seen a massive spike in coronavirus-related searches since Covid-19 decided to take Aladdin up on his offer of being shown the world.

Where are the robots with capes?


If Robots Steal So Many Jobs, Why Aren't They Saving Us Now?
We've been led to believe that robots and AI are replacing humans en masse. But this economic catastrophe is blowing up that myth.
an amazon prime delivery vehicle


MODERN CAPITALISM HAS never seen anything quite like the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. In a matter of months, the deadly contagious bug has spread around the world, hobbling any economy in its path. In the United States, where consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of economic activity, commerce has come to a standstill as people stay home to slow the virus’ spread. Hotels and restaurants and airlines have taken massive hits; Delta has cut its flight capacity by 70 percent. One in five US households has already lost work. And that’s all because of the vulnerabilities of the human worker. When we get sick—or we have to shelter in place to avoid getting sick—the work that depends on people grinds to a stop.

Why haven’t the machines saved us yet?

This economic catastrophe is blowing up the myth of the worker robot and AI takeover. We’ve been led to believe that a new wave of automation is here, made possible by smarter AI and more sophisticated robots. San Francisco has even considered a tax on robots—replace a human with a machine, and pay a price. The problem will get so bad, argue folks like former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, we’ll need a universal basic income to support our displaced human workers. (UBI seems to have actually arrived, in a sense, with the Trump administration’s proposed payout to American households to weather the crisis: A $1,000 check for most, with an extra $500 for every child.)

Your employer sentenced you to work from home. The least you could do is show up for an online meeting.

As the world’s workforce continues to move online — working from home during the coronavirus pandemic — employees are finding creative ways to appear more online than they really are.

Take Zoom. According to its website, there’s a feature that, when turned on, can tell hosts if chat participants have navigated away from the active Zoom window for more than 30 seconds.


Too bad they don't put that much time, energy and creativity into their jobs.

SMH. MY TODDLER JUST ATE MY WEED. WHAT NOW? - The downside to legal, easily-acquired edibles: they look delicious (especially when you’re confined at home)

Oh no. Oh shit. Your weed is all gone, and your kid isn’t looking too well, and Christ, it’s going to be quite a day.

This scenario, distressing for at least two reasons (1: unwell child; 2: no weed left), is on the rise. As more and more states legalize weed, there’s a higher chance of it lying around the house in some sort of delicious-looking form. No kid is going to chow down on a jar of actual weed weed — it tastes nasty. But a brownie, cookies or gummies in cute packaging? Yeah, they’ll eat them.

And then they’ll get high. Real high.

FFS, the Kung Flu has even caused poor rationale for our Genius Award Winner.

A man arrested Saturday for auto theft claimed the coronavirus made him do it, cops say.

According to investigators, Alvin Rementer, 70, in late-January pawned his 2000 Chevrolet Silverado for $1500 at Pawn Depot in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Since turning over title to his wheels, Rementer has returned to the shop several times to “make statements of not possibly being able to pay for the pawn payment,” an arrest affidavit states.

While the pawn shop manager was “willing to work with him,” cops say, Rementer allegedly took matters into his own hand around 7 AM Saturday. Using a spare key, Rementer drove the truck away from the pawn shop (where it apparently was parked outside the business).

After the car was reported stolen, a cop spotted the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Rementer, who was driving the Chevy, reportedly confessed to stealing the vehicle, adding that he “freaked out over the ‘corona’ and the overall situation.

Yes, after scorning it for years, he got married at age 50 to a woman 18 years younger. It was a love match, and he was devastated when she died 5 years later.

"Mencken, who once called marriage "the end of hope" and who was well known for mocking relations between the sexes, had gone to the altar. "

Here's the debt to GDP ratio calculated as total public debt outstanding over nominal dollar GDP:

https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/FYGFGDQ188S

When that number is increasing, debt is growing faster than GDP. When decreasing GDP is growing faster. When holding its own, they are growing about the same rate.

Note the ramp up during Obama. Trump's Boom stabilized it somewhat. It's still growing, but only slightly.

I hear you. I knew a lovely girl, aged 13, whose parents were big potheads. Any talk about legalization or pot-smoking jokes, and she was all-in with talking points. "Better than alcohol" was one. By the time she was 17, she was a mess.

She wasn't the only kid who started smoking weed with her parents, but she was the one whose cognitive decline was most evident.

After legalization in my state, long-term studies started coming about how marijuana damages brain development in children and adolescents.

https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/FYGFDPUN

Now, it used to be you could modify it to do some transforms and reflect that in the URL, but now it's done differently.

Click on edit graph, and switch to percent change from year ago. That will show you the quarterly annual rate of change in debt.

You will see the change peaked at over 30% during the Crash. During Trump, it's been bouncing at 2.5 to 7%.

If you play around with it, you see you can do some pretty sophisticated stuff with FRED here, putting in your formula using their data series.

Mine is postponed until "things settle down". Corrective surgery for spine fusion that failed. Three of eight screws holding lower spine together have come loose.

266 Seems to me San Juan county and the rest of the square states can split the middle by "Use At Your Own Risk" policy. They don't need to shut 50 gazillion square miles down, simply point out that you're on your own. Which frankly is as it should be. People want a "Wilderness Experience" and get away from it all. Well guess what, part of "it" is helicopters and EMS teams and the rest of "it".

Interesting pic MisHum. Wonder if it's pre or post interesting weather.

Returning to ranks of the employee this week is invigorating and sobering at the same time. Onboard and work is all virtual. It's too easy to pit in 10-12 hours without realizing it. Cooped up in the home office I find that I don't get up and move like I used to at the prior corporate office space gig.

Have others here in the WFH era seen this happening too?

That would be sensible (I have a friend on facebook who takes the drug for lupus, and recently had trouble filling a prescription)


However, an article on the regulation includes this paragraph.

"The regulation prohibits the prescribing and dispensing chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for a COVID-19 diagnosis, requires an ICD-10 code on prescriptions for the drugs and limits the prescription amount to a 30-day supply for the drugs."

If they'll get infected and then self-quarantine for oh, 14 to 21 days, then they'll be doing humanity a great favor insofar as multiplying the Herd Immunity Effect.

Anyone think they'll have the maturity and presence to actually DO the self-quarantine. As in, for the rest of us?

The thought process behind the electives cancellations is that the hospitals are short of supplies.

Regarding Tonight's Zappaology class tunes.

Any Way the Wind Blows, I heard that as a kid about 12. Had no idea it was Frank Zappa. Trying to figure out where I had heard it. It wasn't the radio.

Memory serves it was at my older cousin's house, the radical one that lived in the city, and later got his picture in the paper for protesting the Vietnam War.

We lived in Puyallup, a small town at the time. It was kinda big deal to drive the 90 minutes to north Seattle to visit my Dad's sister and family.

My cousin, thinking back, was an ok guy, but he was a true long-haired hippie in the late 60's. Everyone else, shades of redneck.

He had the biggest stack of albums I'd ever seen, and he was even in a band, the trap set was in the basement.

It was all so surreal. Yep, that very same Zappa song.

Crazy effing memories.

345 It had been 34 days since SkyNet went active. The machines, after the initial pulse of destruction, set about in their methodical process of eliminating mankind. I was taking a breather in a semi-still standing convenience store.
I got lucky.
I found a six pack of beer, three hostess twinkies, and there was still internet connectivity. I logged in and sure as shit, the HQs was STILL putting up Zappa.
I drank the beer, ate the Twinkies, and went looking for machines.

350 I believe I found this place from Cathy Seipp's (RIP) blog, which was called Cathy's World.

After she died, Bradley J. Fikes (also RIP, just recently in fact) started up another blog in her memory called The Festering Swamp.

I still miss both places, although I have a hunch Cathy would have been very NeverTrumper, and that Bradley himself was also very NeverTrump.

365 I also used to post a lot at Patterico, but got annoyed because he didn't seem able to control the trolls very well, and also because he went radio silent about the abuses of liberal leadership in California, at least for a (long IMHO) time.

He's a deputy district attorney in LA County and I fear that he's been muted because he didn't want to run afoul of his then-boss, Kamala Harris. But that's just my wild-ass guess as to why Patterico lost his touch.

Now he's full NeverTrump, which is also keeping me away.

372 Denver story. Language warning.

Colorado reopened its liquor and dope stores today, because, well, because.

Because while you cannot go backcountry skiing from Red Mountain Pass summit (elev. 11,018', been there) because Wuhan, you must have your booze and weed, mostly your weed, and it's totes OK to form a line that goes three blocks to buy your limit of Casey Jones (my favorite strain when living there '13 through '17).

So the night before they reopened the stores, in in the city of Denver, up along a boulevard north of tony old Park Hill, a boulevard named for the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., it was known by the locals there was a liquor store selling out its back door. Or at least that is how our SIL entered the premises.

Looking to buy wine. The only white guy there, and he wants to buy wine.

The line at the register was long, most all slamming up armloads of Colt 45 and other malts, a lot paying with grubby cash fished out of front pockets, then back pockets, jacket pockets, shit, cash in all the pockets.

Our SIL's getting there with his handfuls of cabernet, while the line slowly moves, guys needing to fish for money, the cashier figuring change using a calculator on his phone.

The black dude (weren't they all?) behind SIL, who apparently knows the guy at the register, says, "N!gga, c'mon, start swipin' some PLASTIC!"

I remember that guy. I think the "punching down" thing made it into more than a couple of posts. What he never understood was that Ace stands astride the world. Every direction he can punch is down. Has to stretch to reach the NeverTrumpers, though.

437 Good evening MisHum,

Thanks for the sad news about the passing of drummer
Bill Rieflin due to cancer -- shocking, and I hadn't
heard about it elsewhere until now.

Rieflin was not R.E.M.'s original drummer, that was Bill
Berry, who "retired" after (IIRC) back problems. They tried a few different drummers after Berry, before
seating Rieflin.

I first learned of Rieflin before he joined Crimson, when
he led a trio session, _The Repercussions Of Angelic
Behavior_, with bass/Chapman Stick player Trey Gunn
and guitarist Fripp. After the mid-90's, the six piece
Crimson of that time had divided into several "fractals",
which were called "ProjecKts": 1, 2, 3, 4 and X.
That Rieflin trio was what would become ProjecKt 3,
with Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto instead. (In the
past, Mastelotto was the drummer for a pop band
called 'Mr. Mister' that had a couple of minor hits,
such as "Broken Wings").

Another 'side band' Rieflin was part of that I didn't see
mentioned in MisHum's link (compared to more famous
ones such as Ministry) was an improvising group called
the 'Slow Music Project', also with Fripp, R.E.M.
guitarist Peter Buck(!), and the late European keyboardist
Hector Zazou, among others.

RIP indeed, Mr. Rieflin.

Fauci knows even fast tracking a vaccine, 6 months out, maybe more, and we can only hope summer is a long, hot one to kick it's ass for the time being... meanwhile I occupy the entire 2nd floor of my job.....solo...cuz I'm the nurse...we can't phone it in and clients still need care and meds.

Now, they have managed to find someone who will take them in and buy food for them.

537 Saw Zappa live a number of times, the first time in late summer 1967 at some small outdoor venue in Warrensville Heights, OH.

It was him and the Mothers, and they did, among other tunes, Zappa's masterpiece, "Brown Shoes Don't Make It." Jimmy Carl Black on drums and doing vocals.

To us mostly all straight midwesterners, these guys, with their hair, beards, outfits, and attitudes, it seemed otherworldy.

I recall that while the act was quite physical, with band members jumping and running, it was very tightly orchestrated, and Zappa was clearly in control of superb musicians.

My roommate and I had just gone halvsies on a whole kilo, one big fat brick, of weed, bought for our own consumption, and we took our girlfriends to the show. They didn't get it. The dope or the music.

I'm not sure. I remember my mother talking about it (one of the daughters is named after my mother, so she keeps up with that one). These are 20 somethings, both of them.

IIRC, several months ago my mother mentioned something about them going on some "world tour" thing. They were in Spain, I think, and then went somehwere and wound up in India. It's one of those youth adventure things.

Corrective surgery for spine fusion that failed. Three of eight screws

608 Publius.

If they can't reach a U.S. Consulate, have them find a Sikh Temple, and name drop the late, great Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal.

About the largest crowd turnout for a slain Deputy here, ever.

This was news (and the OVERWHELMING support from every color of the Houston community), that reached far and deep into every Sikh Temple and Community in India and elsewhere.

Have them do enough Bing searches on the late Deputy so as to be VERY familiar with his story.

While alive, he actually was quite well known and popular here.

But the Sikh's will likely help, especially with the name-drop, more than any traditional Hindu there will.

If you need further Indian connections, the major local AM radio talk host here, Michael Berry, is married into a VERY well placed Indian Military Family.

Check out Michaelberry.com, and hit the "contact" link.

Tell your story, and see if some wheels can be set into motion.

Most important thing, for now?

Getting them transported to some place with a consulate or something may be difficult, I just don't know the details.
Posted by: publius


Hey publius,

your friend needs to contact State/Bureau of Consular Affairs, and request a welfare check on her daughters. She will have to give the exact town and any contact information she has for her girls, and then State will have the nearest consulate do a welfare and whereabouts check on them. If there is a way for them to fly back to the US, she will have to pay for it, but the consulate should be able to get them home unless they are infected.

If the girls ignored an evacuation notice, it will be harder to get them out. Prayers up for all of you.

They seem to come down to 2 types: businesses that want to stay open and people who don't want to go to work. In the first category, the owner of several "adult toy stores" called today. He fired his 18 employees so they could claim unemployment and checked with his lawyer who told him he could face fines or jail time by opening his business. Then he sees the pawn shop next door open and the liquor store open . . . long story, short, he wants to be declared an essential business. He tells me people are home with nothing else to do. He goes on to describe his social distancing and . . . lord help me . . . sanitation procedures. Told him I would check with my director and someone would call him back. Gave my director the message and told him I wasn't sure I could discuss the call without violating the government's harassment policies . . .

I had a sweet, little former stray some-kind-of cat (probably a Siberian runt) and after a tenuous start, they fell in love with each other. After "Dorkie Dork" (the kitty) had to have one of her back legs amputated, my girlfriend spent more and more time with her until she never left for any reason unless I was home. Dorkie Dork is no longer with us and my girlfriend is devastated not having her in her life anymore. I want to find someone who makes a locket (or is it a pendant?) that when she opens it there's a gif of Dorkie Dork inside (complete with meow). Has anyone seen anything like that?

I went to a local store last Thursday and all they had left were a couple of revolvers, a couple of very high end AR's, and about 8 .22 rifles. And almost no ammo. I'm thinking a lot of first time buyers with no training. I foresee a large number of accidental firearm accidents in the near future.

The Chicago Way. Illinois doctors are prescribing themselves large quantities of the quinine like drugs that may be effective.

There are similar trends in Miami and Houston and other places.

These are large prescriptions for themselves, family, and friends. Prescriptions of Z-pac are showing similar trends.

These docs are trying to hoard the drugs for themselves and their own families.

745 I read a newspaper story many years ago about two toddlers, age about 3, who swallowed about 50 hits each of LSD that their uncle had left on a coffee table. According to the article, the kids were taken to a hospital, and the next day they were fine. I saved the newspaper clipping, and once, out of curiosity of how they turned out in later years, tried to search their names on Google, but all I retrieved was links to the original newspaper article.

Because oddly, even though we are anti-abortion, we actually respect women, and would never allow our wives and daughters to be subjugated the way this series portrays.

I was about to hit my second bottle of that crap that makes you have diareah and I had not got the call from the hospital yet giving me the 3eport time. So I called my Dr's office and got a nurse to ask her if they had heard anything. She said no and had me hold while she called them on a separate line. They told her it was cancelled and they tried to call me but "couldn't get me". That was an outright lie because I sat right next to my phone and even carried with me in those shit spasms. The hospital we have here is the absolute worst I have ever seen anywhere in the country and I have seen a lot of them.

820 Those anti-malarial drugs are definitely effective
(against malaria for sure). But they can have some serious side effects.
I think the side effects are the reason that there's some reluctance to
use them. But if you are in ICU-shape, you may as well.

AIUI, not having done an exhaustive literature research, but especially with Plaquenil, the side effects stem primarilly from either high dosing, long term use (years and years) or both.

the regimen for Chinese Lung AIDs is normal dosing, with azithromycin, for less than a week.

and off label prescribing is perfectly legal, especially since the FDA authorized "experimental status" (paraphrase) for the medications.

Posted by: redc1c4, ONT Rx Tech at March 25, 2020 01:03 AM (vwf8z)

821 sure, but it was found to be very dangerous and not used other than in icu patients with malarial diseases?
Posted by: not so

Apples and dog biscuits. What works for frozen ball joints may not work for frozen oil lifters.

Chloroquine has substantial side effects, Hydroxychloroquine, a derivative, less so. In both cases the serious side effects are uncommon, but can be very serious in impact on eyes, heart liver. Less serious but unpleasant effects like sharting your eyeballs out. Sometimes the serious injury improves, sometimes not.

Also, lots of drug-drug interactions.

We have patients in my ICU on HQ right now looking for proof the risk benefit falls our way in larger cohorts. PRAYING it does.

Got a patient off the vent today, a win.

If I was mild sick I would not risk the side effects. Moderate and requiring higher flow O2 or pressure support, I would.

It's not candy to be put in punch bowls on the street corner. BUT a shit load is being used in experimental trials RIGHT NOW TODAY looking to prove efficacy and a positive risk-benefit, establish a dosing plan, see if the side effects are better or worse in CV19 patients than say RA patients, etc.

And praying. LOTS of praying. I work two places, one faith based. Every shift starts with a group prayer.

There are few atheists in ICUholes. Say a prayer for your medical folks.

Republicans generally have no idea of the lefty long game. They just put up some mealy mouth half-assed defense by incorporating the leftist premise to begin with. The leftists attack again with renewed vigor, and they fold. "We Shall Never Speak Of This Again". That's how we got in this mess.

I'm not bringing "all" the guns this year. But I'm bringing "more".

Was planning on building and bringing a small cannon.

But damn, this shutdown is playing hell not only on budgets, but on timing, too.

The cannonade may well have to wait till 2021.

It's not an inexpensive proposition, and the building of it will be challenging. I don't have to make the barrel or wheels.

Just everything else. At half scale, no one makes these things. I'll have to hand forge all the iron, and fabricate the wood carriage, from scratch.

I really want a year to do it all. Because I want to do it right.

Don't know if that's the way of my people, but it's damn sure the way of ME.

867 55" is now the smallest of the "standard sizes" for televisions now. Anything smaller than 55, most manufacturers won't bother releasing their top tier sets. But in 55 you can still buy the full gamut. If you can find a 2019 Q70R or Q80R from Samsung for cheap, get it. The new Q60T is shit, and the Q70T is somewhere between the 60R and the 70R, but will almost certainly cost much more.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUrvVkVPXHM

He discusses (about 45 days ago) 5 facts (via the CDC, etc.) about transmission. At the end, he mentions 8 actions to be considered.
- Isolation and Hand-washing with soap (NOT sanitizer), we all know and should be doing.
- Wearing a mask; obviously, he's correct, there's considerable merit to this, and Our Betters have been lying to us.
- Wear wraparound eye protection; ALL of my safety glasses, and the only ones I'll use, are of this type.
Eyes really are vulnerable to the after-effects of a cough or sneeze.
The next two are for if/when things get real stupid:
- Use disposable gloves (I saw 3 or 4 in the parking lot of my preferred grocery store).
- Wear a gown. This jogged my memory; I notice that many employees at the grocery store, and a few other places, are wearing pants, long sleeves, and a hoodie, or equivalent.
These items aren't really needed now in SJ-SF, CA, but they effectively constitute gown-level protection if peeled-off correctly, as they cover all skin. Skin sweat pores are potential virus entry points; low probability, but not zero

The power of Maytag will then help you.

- Stay informed, and ...
- Stay aware. Well, yes.

Then I saw this video:
COVID-19 Update 8: Zinc and chloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19? Medmastery Mar 17, 2020

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIymfznD7YA

A personal friend of mine has mentioned, more than once over the past few years, that when flu season starts, he starts taking zinc tablets.

Watch for the charts showing the effects of zinc on virus "stuff", followed by the effects of cholorquine when used with zinc. I suppose this information is true.

I checked Wiki; quinine is somehow related to chloroquine, and quinine is available in tonic water ... at my preferred grocery store. The amount (83ppm max) is probably way too low to have any measurable effect ...

OTOH, there are certain drinks that require tonic. Adding a 50mg zinc tablet to a gin and tonic couldn't hurt.

With my luck, the stores are out of tonic and gin.

I'm right in the middle of a growing controversy here.

My friend and a good County Commissioner said that COVID-19 came from China. He is under escalating attacks to resign from the Left. A local Acorn front weighed in, as well as our local idiot mayor who is running for Democratic Federal Senator. I know the elected official players. Today in the local Leftist rag, there was a petition from Chinese Graduate Students for him to resign.

Thinking ugly thoughts, and woke from a sound sleep because of this. I need to get a CC permit.

899 Hey Horde, your man in Hong Kong Publius Redux here, checking in now that the rest of the world is entering the "several weeks in" phase of the unnecessary global freak-out that is the Chinese Corona-virus, or Wuhan Virus. I can say, most definitively, that we have learned a great deal of lessons regarding this flu-like pandemic and they are as follows:

1. China is evil. For decades upon decades it has forgone doing the things that a modern civilized society /government should do such as ensuring public sanitation, a sanitary food supply chain and an eradication of activities that are high risk and patently unacceptable social behaviors (eating bats and exotic animals such as pangolins and having them in live markets next to green groceries and other butchered meats and fish for starters). It has purposefully done this because it has been laser-like focused on one thing and one thing only: projecting its economic power throughout the globe in order to achieve global geo-political power. Trying to hide and downplay the outbreak that their disgusting sanitary and personal hygiene habits, and government policy, created, more than any other thing, is what allowed this to become a pandemic.

2. Because of the above, China will more likely than not continue to be the biggest breeding ground for new viral outbreaks and it should be treated as such and isolated as much as possible

3. Having supply chains that reach into China, or exporting entire industries and heavy manufacturing to China is potentially lethal to the world's and, most particularly the USA's economic and political health, and those of corporations. It needs to stop and be reversed. A policy of common sense low taxes for corporations, streamlined regulatory approvals, low income taxes (state and Fed) and a throttle back on big labor unions in order to promote the repatriation of all manufacturing and suppliers of raw materials back to North America, should be instituted immediately

4. Air travel bans should weapons of choice numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 - all the way through 10 in the arsenal of ways to fight the spread of viruses. Had an immediate and widespread air travel ban on China been instituted (including bans foo travel from China through third party countries - such as wasn't done in Italy for instance) along with isolation of anyone who recently came form China in the month proceeding the ban, this virus would have been stopped almost in its tracks. the US bought itself some time by doing a ban - but other countries did not follow suit and hence the virus literally traveled the globe in just a few short weeks. Borders, as well "work" to prevent the spread of pandemics. Also it would have isolated the economic fallout to one industry- air travel, which then could have been targeted with a much smaller, focused bailout than is now necessary.

5. A complete shut down of the world's economy, hunkering down and behaving like this is the Zombie Apocalypse (TM) is, entirely unnecessary. Hong Kong did not do it. All that is needed is common sense regulations: (a) Wear masks on subways and buses and enclosed spaces with crowds. (b) Wash your hands often. (c) If you are sick, stay home. (d) observe strict epidemic/ID protocols with the elderly and geriatric facilities, as well as for other at risk patient groups. Easy peasey Japanese-ey.

6. The press is simply put, disgusting and is also evil, and has purposefully stoked the fires of hysteria in a coordinated effort both to provide cover for their Chinese corporate owner overlords and to attempt to "hurt" Trump whom they hate by attempting to destroy the entire world's economy.

7. the virus, although deadlier than the flu in certain respects, for the elderly and the at risk populations, is not really that different than the flu, statistically speaking and in outcome - altogether it appears slightly more infectious. However as a flu-type virus, it will, as Trump pointed out, subside in the warmer months and likely disappear altogether (or be subject to vaccination) . When bodies do not pile up, as the MSM gleefully is talking up (see # 6 above), there will be hell to pay, and that hell will come in the from of a very, very pissed off populace (outside liberal enclaves inside big city liberal bastions). Look for normal Americans to be actually roasting CNN reporters on spits at annual 4th of July barbecues this year - post "virus Apocalypse Hoax" no not meaning that the virus doesn't exist - meaning that hyping it up like the plague is a full bore hoax fueled by Nos. 1 and 6 above).

8. Democrats are evil and even low information voters are catching on. When Nancy Pelosi swooped in to try and take the relief/stimulus bill hostage - with all her little liberal wish list SJW items - she must have really thought that this was not the case. However, even internal pro-Dem polling must have put the fear of God into her and Schumer as hey did an immediate about-face. This speaks volumes. They know the jig is up and that, as such, they will try and circle the wagons, hope that the outbreak kills hundreds of thousand and that the economy tanks, like the evil ghouls that they are, because it is their only "hope" at derailing Trump. If bodies don't materialize I thin they understand that they will be roasting on those spits with the MSM folks on July 4th, and rightly so. I really do think it's going to be pitchfork and torch carrying mob time.

9. lastly, all those who are spending time in our society trying to say " it's racist" to call the Chinese virus the Chinese virus, including some of our own "concern trolls" are retarded as f*ck. First off - see lesson number 1 above. And always call it the Chinese Virus, as Trump is doing, so people do not forget who the real threat is on our planet. Secondly, no one cares if you call it Chinese virus but liberal wankers and so if you are saying it - then you are one, and therefore are part of the problem (see lessons 5, 6 and 8 above).

Anyway I wish I could say you don't have several more weeks of freak-out ahead but you do. Italy's numbers are finally dropping and we will see the same statistical picture in the US shortly. Have faith.

Sorry for the long post but had to vent. Keep the faith fellow hordlings and remember the main lessons: China evil, travel bans and borders work, plus Democrats and MSM are evil too, all work in Trump's favor in the fall. Bigly.

Oh and tell all your liberal friends: "Trump 2020! Because, f*ck you, too!"

900 Jim, I'd love to help you out, but we're strictly brick and mortar. We don't ship TVs. We have a small staff to deliver locally. But that's it.

Also, we're nearly wiped out of 2019 stock. I just have Q60Rs in 55", which is a solid general purpose TV with a better-than-average picture. The Q70R runs rings around it, and the Q80R gets close to plasma-like blacks. Of course, OLED sets have measurably perfect black levels, but they are susceptible to burn in, and don't look as bright in a very bright room. But they're perfect for building a home theater around.

Sucks for seaplanes, too.

Surface tension is not a hull's (any hull's) best friend.

And now you know why the fastest hulls in the world, the America's Cup catamarans, have 3-M films applied to the hulls which have "micro-scratches" applied longitudinally down the ama.

"Glass smooth", or "waxed" hulls create more drag than the micro-scratched surfaces.

Which create micro-bubbles along their length, thus lowering the "wetted" area of the hull, due to the cavitated air being released from the micro-scratched coating.

Frankly? I've not seen this experiment duplicated in the EAA world of Experimental Aircraft.

So far, waxing the shit outta the airframe and wings still seems to be the hot-shit application, there.

Anyone seen a fly-off between the two treatments?

Dimpled golf balls?
Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc

A short tutorial

https://preview.tinyurl.com/y92kejet

Excerpt:
Dimples also affect lift. A smooth ball with backspin creates lift by warping the airflow such that the ball acts like an airplane's wing. The spinning action makes the air pressure on the bottom of the ball higher than the air pressure on the top; this imbalance creates an upward force on the ball. Ball spin contributes about one half of a golf ball's lift. The other half is provided by the dimples, which allow for optimization of the lift force.

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at March 25, 2020 02:38 AM (CDGwz)

910 More:

Dimples on a golf ball create a thin turbulent boundary layer of air that clings to the ball's surface. This allows the smoothly flowing air to follow the ball's surface a little farther around the back side of the ball, thereby decreasing the size of the wake. A dimpled ball thus has about half the drag of a smooth ball.

I have kinda the same thing on my boat's Mast, it has vertical small ridges that protrude from the surface and effect the wind going over the mast into turbulance so when it reaches the sails it has flattened out and a
more effective flow over the sail.. they call them turbulence stimulaters..

Navy ships have used Prairie / Masker since the 1970s. Air bubbles along the hull and from the screw. My first ship had the systems. Do not know if this is still in use.

It could be adapted to other ships, like sailboats, but do not know if "rules" allow it. But sounds cheaper than every inch of a hull being specially treate.

947 I gotta say, I had a couple of good days Mon and Tues. Went shopping Mon, and golfing Tues. Felt almost human.

Found a par 3 golf course in Grand Bay AL that was open. Strangest thing. No attendant. You signed in, put your money in 'the jar', and the keys were in the carts. $30 for two of us.

We played 27 holes in 3 hours. The longest hole was 170 yards, and the green conditions could be described as "well, they looked different than the fairways".

We had a blast. A touch of normality.

Yes. I say I'm from Manhattan ... Kansas.

When I was in grad school we had a tough guy go into a bar and growl, "I'm from Chicago. I want that seat." People would get up. And he was a tough guy. Over 90 stitches after a lab accident, and no anesthesia. He was a sight, with glass fragments sticking out of his neck and arms.

Like I was saying it's usually user error that's why they now are built
stronger and have self cooling, i'm not up on American but the Euros definitely have turbo's down...There's not many without them.. One big problem is the oil, if you don't use synthetic then you get oil baking which leads to plugged oil gallys which lead to failure..

"He had muscle pains and was generally tired. He showed no other symptoms - no fever, no cough, no shortness of breath"

I'm surprised he even thought a need to get tested with those symptoms. I got what I think was a cold but another person I spent a lot of time with got a slight fever and chills after returning; the got tested and is waiting for results. I'll try to get tested if she is positive too.

1143

In terms of rates of increase, NYC, London, and now Madrid, Spain are the worst hit.

NYC itself is just under doubling ever day. London and Madrid were are on the 2-day doubling rate track. Lombardy, Italy (the worst hit region) was on the 2-day track for a while, and now has declined down past the 3-day track.

NYC looks horrible right now, in turns of the rate of increase. Lombary was never near 1 day doubling time. But NYC is just under that.

1146 I hear a lot of purists talking about the individual stimulus checks. I shouldn't get one, being retired and not feeling any reduction in income, but I'll sure as hell take it. I can also guarantee a 10% tithing to PDT's reelection fund. If Planned Parenthood can take tax dollars and give them to some commie, I can give some to our President.
