The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. Vaclav Havel


Quote II

Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people. Arthur Schopenhauer


Quote III

What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like. Saint Augustine


Quote IV

There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.' C. S. Lewis

Lighten up Sugar Tits.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially stopped being senior members of the British royal family on Wednesday months after they announced their decision to step away and move to North America. Now, Meghan is reportedly planning to make her return to acting, but she’s determined to only do so on her terms.

An inside source told Daily Mail that Meghan, 38, only wants to work with A-list directors in the hopes that she will secure a breakout role that will finally get her taken seriously as an actress. She is reportedly worried that critics will be especially hard on her, so she wants to make sure that only the best of the best directors are attached to her projects.

The source said that Meghan has “been telling her agents that she wants Ava DuVernay involved, and that they need to find the right script.” While Meghan has already been flooded with offers, the insider said that “she thinks the majority of them are cheesy and beneath her.”


Here is the Horde's opportunity to cast Meghan and create the movie titles she could/should star in.

Good attorneys always know the answer to their questions. But what about stunts?

This Lawyer Fell Out A Skyscraper Window To His Death While Trying To Prove It Was Unbreakable

On July 9, 1993, Toronto lawyer Garry Hoy was doing his favorite party trick: hurling himself at his office's windows to show their strength. But this time, his stunt failed.

Sure. This is handy now. But it will also be handy when everybody is home the next time.

Chances are, your home internet is under a lot more strain than normal at the moment: With schools and workplaces temporarily closing all across the globe, you might well be fighting with your family or your housemates for any available bandwidth. If you want to limit buffering and maximize speeds, we’ve got a few tips to consider.

The basics
First of all, there are all the internet optimization tips that apply no matter how many devices you’ve got connected—we’ve covered these in detail in the past. To summarize, get your router hub somewhere central, and consider wiring up certain demanding devices (like consoles and streaming boxes) if possible, with Ethernet cable.

Oh to be young and in love, or not.

This one was just too hilarious to ignore, although I’m guessing she doesn’t think so,

My bf (21M) really wants to live in a van after graduation and I (19F) dont know how to tell him that I’m not sure if I want to.

Ive been dating my bf for over a year now, and we get along really well. However, these past few weeks my bf has gotten really into the idea of buying a van, remodeling and traveling the world when we graduate in two years. All he does now is watch van life videos, car repair videos, and other travel vlogs in way of preparation. He has the make a model of the camper van he’s going to buy all planned out, as well has the company he plans on hiring to refurbish it. He’s also starting to passively aggressively judge me for not prepping for the van life with him, saying that he shouldn’t be the only one planning all of this. The thing is, I never explicitly told him that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him in a van. Im guessing he assumed so because we have been camping several times in the past and both really enjoyed it. I might have expressed support for his desires to be a nomad in the past, but never any direct affirmation.

Everything is Kung Flu even our Genius Award Winners.

A RANDY couple were caught on camera "having sex" in a London park by a passing jogger during the coronavirus lockdown.

The female runner was out jogging as temperatures soared on Saturday when she spotted two people lying in long grass in South Norwood Country Park, Croydon.

She stopped and filmed 13 seconds of the encounter - and said she was furious with the "disgusting" couple.

"At 2pm, during my afternoon jog, I spotted two morons having sex by the woodlands in South Norwood Country Park," she said.

"It was in plain sight and children were around.

"So much for staying home and saving lives.

"Disgusting."

Meghan Markle's best script would be the one about the rancid bitch that swooned a mentally weak guy and got him to willingly give up his life of being a Prince for Life, because blowjobs. Really good blow jobs, combining with the mixed-race sex fantasy.

69 Ava DuVernay? Of Wrinkle in Time fame? I mean, Selma was good enough as far as "serious and meaningful historical films" are concerned, but it wasn't terribly memorable.

I guess I don't see the appeal of DuVernay as a ticket to the A-list, but she's a female, black director, and maybe that's all that matters.

Meghan's gonna be lucky to end up starring in her own Hallmark Channel movie franchise.

Suits wasn't exactly a top shelf television show, y'know? Sure, nine seasons, but it was basic cable. Same channel that airs WWE RAW every week, FFS.

148 @112: "1. The Hollywood idiots will do something splashy as a vehicle for her."

I was joking when I said Hallmark Channel movie franchise upthread, but I just looked at her wiki page, and I'll be damned, but her last two movies in 2014 and 2016 were Hallmark Channel originals, and the movie posters are as cringe as you'd expect.

Hollywood won't even give her something splashy. There's not enough long term financial upside to making her happy. She's a B-list royal, and barely C-list as far as celebrity actresses are concerned.

Disney cartoon movie voiceover work might be her best chance, but she might not be talented enough. They gave her a documentary voiceover, but that seems like that very least they coulda given.

9/11 directly affected it's immediate victims, their families, emergency personnel and then later, recovery and construction folks, and ultimately, the .mil and their families.

For most of the rest of the nation, it was something they watched on TV.

At worst, they lined the streets with flags to show respect for a fallen soldier, coming home for that one last time.

*THIS*, has directly affected every Man, Woman and Child in the United States of America.

The "front lines" are directly outside the front door of everyone. And for those so unfortunate as to been hit by the bug, well, it's on the inside of those doors, too.

In the end, there's going to be an awful lot of people who know someone who either got sick or died from this thing.

I think the memory of this will "stick" much more than 9/11.

And if Trump can maintain the pace on the Press Briefings, then three major messages will have been successfully conveyed to the American People.


1. The Press is Assshoe!

2. China is Asshoe!

3. Democrat Party is Asshoe!


We're fortunate here, in that the press is doing EVERY POSSIBLE THING to drive Point #1 home.

The ACME rake factory just had to put on a 3rd shift.

That's interesting because Alice Cooper once had an accident during the rehearsal of his fake hanging. There was a wire alongside the rope noose, that prevented the noose from strangling him. It was a bit shorter, so that when he dropped the noose wouldn't actually strangle him. Well, they had used the same wire so many times that it had weakened, and during a rehearsal it snapped.

21 videos, I counted.

Oh, there is a Lou Reed in the middle, guessing it was because I linked it in a comment last week, a single Keith Moon video (have no idea why), and a single Bob Dylan video (that I listened to about a week ago).

So only 18 out the 21. Guess I over reacted. Never mind.

265 @213: "Pretty much what Ohio's governor did."

The difference being Wisconsin's elections weren't just primaries, but a whole bunch of state offices, including the supreme court, so it's a little more fundamental in terms of law.

There's nothing stopping the legislature from giving the governor authority to move things around in case of emergency, but they gotta codify that into law first.

She finds out that being a royal, especially a British royal is nothing like being an A-lister. There are perks, but also tremendous responsibilities and work that is required.

There there is only one perfection in the universe - God - everything else is imperfect.

I think the miniseries, "The Peacekeeper Wars", which was the conclusion to Farscape, was actually quite better than a lot of the Farscape episodes themselves - I thought this was one where they did a really nice job of wrapping up the entire series. The homage to 2001 featuring "Harvey" (the implant in Chrichton's head, itself an homage to the Jimmy Stewart movie) was extremely well done. Very enjoyable for any fan of the Kubrick original.

I have considered Farscape. But it is by turns, depressing and weird. Weird is fine, depressing, well I gave at the office.
Posted by: Aetius451AD at April 06, 2020 10:57 PM (A5zUN)

I think the miniseries, "The Peacekeeper Wars", which was the conclusion to Farscape, was actually quite better than a lot of the Farscape episodes themselves - I thought this was one where they did a really nice job of wrapping up the entire series. The homage to 2001 featuring "Harvey" (the implant in Chrichton's head, itself an homage to the Jimmy Stewart movie) was extremely well done. Very enjoyable for any fan of the Kubrick original.

Here's the problem with the demand for diversity in the movies and Meaghan's demands. I like going to movies at the theater. I like the whole experience, including popcorn and pop. Between the ticket prices and the concessions, it ain't cheap. You have to really want to see a movie to go to the theater.

Just looked it up, they've stopped all aircraft production. People were telling me I was crazy 2 weeks ago when I was saying that Boeing was going to have to shut down production for 1 - 2 years because of this. I have no doubt the Government will give them handouts to keep them going, but there's not going to be anything for the workers to do except some refurbishments or maintenance.

The banjo boy was indeed normal, smart even. He was just cursed (or blessed) with a face that looked like an inbred genetic train wreck.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsC4kf6x_Q0

IIRC, he couldn't pick a banjo for shit, and in some of those scenes that had a real picker just reaching around and playing the banjo, or attempting to.

The problem is if you don't know how to play, if you fake playing, it looks stupid on camera, so they always want someone who knows how to play to do it, even if they're gonna dub the actual audio.

except some refurbishments or maintenance.

Within a month of the grounding, there was a very good analysis by an aeronautical engineer that was online, quite long and detailed. Short version was that he thought that by making the engines larger and moving them forward without re-engineering the airframe (long story why they did that), that they made the MAX inherently unstable, and they used the software, which could override the pilot dozens of times per second, to counter the built in instability.

He felt that yes, it was the software that caused the crashes about once every hundred flights, but that *without* the software, the MAX probably couldn't stay in the air 30 minutes without crashing.

It's a death trap. And if it could have been fixed, it would have been fixed by now.

647 616 MAXes can't be fixed? Isn't it mostly a software thing?

----------

Sort of.

The problem with the 737MAX is that the engines are far too large and powerful for an airframe that debuted in 1966.

The performance profile of the 737 has expanded continuously beyond the short-range, low-capacity mission of the original design. Economics dictated that rather than coming up with a new airframe more suited to the mission, the 737 would be pushed beyond its limits. The MCAS system was required to make it all work.

And the MCAS system was completely bungled, with an unfortunate tendency to fly a perfectly fine aircraft into the ground.

Chartered flights (Space A) are cheaper than civilian, sure, but if they owned their own aircraft to do, say, the weekly rotator from Seattle to Tokyo? That might be some yuuuuge savings.

And how the fuck am I supposed to resolve this? Not like they sell masks at truck stops. Can't fucking drive to a pharmacy in a big rig. So I can't grab a bite or take a piss because I don't have a flimsy piece of fabric that doesn't do shit?

Reminds me, reading (dragging myself through a very odd book on the eastern front) - Death Ride. Author clearly is pretty well read on the topic, but just chock full of hobby horses of varying silliness.

My favorite, what I think I see emerging as one of his major themes, is that the Soviets didn't *really* win. At the moment, he's dismissing the way the Battle of Moscow turned out because the German casualty figures were not high.

Now I can't stop, because I want to see how he handles the Soviets bumbling into Berlin in '45. I'm sure the Red Army missed a spot up there in the corner or something.

P-38 pilots didn't. One of my dad's old friends got started as a pilot in early 1942. (he ended up flying a P-47 in Europe) His qualifications were that he was 19, and said he wanted to fly, that was it. They sent him to a training base in the midwest on some old planes the army had (biplanes, I think), gave them a few hours of class room training and said, have at it. He said in those early days, trainees either had a feel for it and picked it up, or they crashed. 1942, about half of the new pilots didn't survive the first two weeks of training, but those that did went on to be pretty good.

also, training for a new plane that came out in those years was basically, there it is, why don't you take it up for a bit and see how it feels? You'll figure it out.

770 On July 9, 1993, a reception was held for law students interested in apprenticeships at Holden Day Wilson. Garry Hoy was giving a tour and decided to demonstrate his favorite party trick: throwing himself against the windows of the Toronto-Dominion Bank Tower so the students could see just how resilient the glass was.

Hoy had performed the stunt to audiences countless times before. As well as demonstrating the strength of the windows, it was clear that he enjoyed showing off a bit.

The first time Hoy body-slammed the window that day, he bounced off as he had every other time. But then he threw himself at the window a second time. What occurred next happened all too quickly and no doubt left everyone in the room utterly horrified.

Instead of bouncing off the window as he had the first time, Hoy went straight through, plunging 24 stories down toward the building courtyard below. The fall killed him instantly.

The glass didn't shatter immediately, but rather popped out of its frame. It quickly became clear to police who arrived on the scene that Hoy's death was the result of a tragic freak accident.

If a dog has a sensitive throat, collar only is not advised, same if head configuration is such the a collar can permit wiggling out by backing away from the leash holder.
A harness permits more effective positive control without either of those problems, which may be critical in an emergency situation.
A well trained dog can do either collar or harness safely, if the master is also well trained!

786 Much myth and rumor abounds as to the 737 Max, and it's failings. I'll list 'em here.

* There's nothing inherently wrong with a dynamically unstable airframe, just so long as the computer systems are up to the job of flying the plane SAFELY. There are more up there flying than just the MAX, but they're not crashing, so you don't hear about them.

* Boeing went cheap as to the above, and the "base level" MCAS system was a SINGLE CHANNEL input from ONE external attitude detector vane.

* You wanted a 2nd external attitude detector vane and corresponding use of the 2nd channel in the MCAS computer, you had to buy the "Safety Package" as an upgrade.

* Boeing's "in the works" refit of the MCAS now features a Four Channel (and four vanes) MCAS system, as standard.

* Boeing "hedged" the selling of the MAX as Aircrew Interchangeable with the earlier 737-800/900, by NOT requiring simulator time and teaching MCAS In Flight Failure Drills, which would have PUNCTUATED the entirely different weight and balance aspects of the airframe.

* The correct procedure for MCAS In Flight Failure, was to turn the MCAS system OFF, turn the Auto Pilot OFF, and hand-fly the airplane to the first diversionary airport. Test flights showed this could be done, but only by hand-flying.

* The 2nd crash showed the pilots DID turn off the MCAS system, but then TURNED IT BACK ON, (it is thought that they presumed it "reset") and it pitched the MAX down to the crash.

* Proper simulator time to train the Pilots how to manage the DIFFERENT Center of Gravity and related flight envelope was not required by Boeing, before putting otherwise qualified pilots into the MAX cockpit.

* U.S. based MAX flight operators were already screaming bloody murder about these things, BEFORE the two overseas operator flown crashes.


Short version.

Upgraded MAX *will* feature 4 channel, redundant MCAS inputs and computer to "check" each channel against the others. A wildly differing reading will be disregarded by the computer, and warning lights and horns will be triggered.

Pilot training will require THOROUGH simulator time, and FAA Flight Examiner sign-off.

Pilots will require an additional 737-MAX "Type-Rating" to attach with their Pilot's License.

The physical upgrades to the MAX are maybe 4 to 5 million per airframe.

Training upgrades will likely run $100k +, per pilot.

Lawsuit settlements will involve sums heretofore unimaginable in the aviation world.

I would not care to have been a Boeing Shareholder, BEFORE the Chy nah virus. And especially, not now.

799 Apparently the US military in South Korea are doing a COVID 19 pre-screen with vinegar.

One of the common first symptoms is stuffy noses, so they test if you can smell vinegar



'We are now performing random smell tests at the entrance gates of
Camps Walker, Carroll and Henry to help better detect personnel who may
be infected by COVID-19,' the garrison said Friday on its Facebook page,
using the virus' official name. 'Those personnel who cannot detect the
screen will be further screened.'

Officials said Sunday the test began on an experimental basis at Camp
Walker this weekend and would likely be expanded to the other bases in
coming days.

Medical organizations have pointed to mounting evidence that anosmia,
the loss of smell or taste, may be an early indicator of the highly
contagious virus, although it has so far been largely anecdotal.

809 ..Re dynamic stability. That's the main problem with the 737 MAX. As someone posted above, that's not good for a freakin' passenger jet.

Fancy fighters and military aircraft are another story, within limits, but not a passenger or other commercial aircraft that's not going to be doing fancy shit.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at April 07, 2020 12:23 AM (rCwaK)



Not a few of the higher-end bizjets up there are dynamically unstable, (or right on the ragged edge of it), and the computer exists between the pilot and control surfaces, just like an F-16.

Done correctly, it can provide for a wider range of CG changes, approach and landing speeds and smoothness in turbulence at altitude.

All the cool kids are doing it now.

"Operator Flexibility" is a huge watch-word in the jet flying world today.

It was Galileo. He actually rolled his objects down ramps because of air resistance. Rolling them down ramps slowed them down so differential effects of air resistance were negligible. I always got caught up in physics problems that said "ignore air resistance" because I couldn't imagine how?

Wonderful question. It's why he used a hammer as the heavy object. They hammer had to go anyway, for busting rocks for the geological experiments. The feather was the only thing additional needed. It was a falcon feather, because they had named their LM "Falcon".

In the general case, it's a polynominal function of speed. In some cases, the square is the dominant one and others can be ignored. In other cases, it the linear term.

You usually take "drag" to be proportional to the square. For very low Reynold's numbers, you can go with the linear F = bv relation.

So, if we were to take a cork sphere, and an iron sphere of like size, and drop them both from the Leaning Tower, would the effect of air resistance be great enough to notice?

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at April 07, 2020 01:01 AM (miJU3)

865 That was easy for me. Assume a vacuum. Air resistance is hard to calculate. And is a function of a square of the speed, IIRC.

I know, right? I was so unsure of myself when I was taking physics that every silly thing in a problem threw me. I remember one problem that said something about two places being so many kilometers apart "as the crow flies." I had no idea how to get started on that one. WTF does THAT mean??? Well, now I know but back than there was no internet to ask. It goes to show you that doing well in problem solving is really tied to confidence in one's ability to do problems. I should have knwn to just use the formulas in the chapter and get started.

And now the Commies have ruined something else perfectly decent. No public sneeze will ever be the same again. The spiritual among us will no doubt say "bless you" with extra fervor and a wry look, and probably get a laugh, but honestly if you sneeze in public from now on you are basically going to be Public Enemy #1 and anyone who does bless you is going to have everyone looking at them, too.

That said I'm a germaphobe, exacerbated bigly by being immunosuppressed, and actually think it's good if we can now shame idiots into sneezing in their elbow like a considerate human being. But my point is, another mundane, predictable social interaction is completely out the window. Commies win.

Probably. If your material gets too light, even small drag forces will throw it off. Drag forces depend on shape of the object, not mass, and speed. So it's the ratio of drag to weight compared with the finally velocity you're going to reach.

Experiments like this are usually done with relatively heavy spheres of different weights.

but I digress...


why are we all in terror over models and numbers that have not even come close to projections...serious, next 2 weeks and people are going to be asking some serious questions.

Like....Why did we throw our entire economy into 1930's destruction?

Over what?


Why did you do this to us?

918 >> is the Leaning Tower of Pisa high enough that falling objects would accelerate to to enough speed

Okay, let's do the Romper Room physics on this. Warning, there is going to be math following, so avert your eyes. Leaning tower of Pisa height is about 57m.

Free falling object (in vacuum) distance vs time.
x = 1/2 g*t^2,
velocity v,
v = g*t.

We solve for the time when it reaches a certain x, to get distance vs velocity:

x = v^2/2g --> v = sqrt(2gx).

For 57m, that's 33 m/s or about 74 mph.

Now, I'm gonna look up the drag/terminal velocity for a sphere and see what that works out to be.

Like engine-turning? I have seen the look you describe. No, I got some premixed texture paint, and a roller sleeve in the form of a 3-dimensional random mesh. I am just going to roll it on, and expect a rough texture with little peaks and valleys. If it covers most of the seams, nail holes, cracks, and screw heads, it's a win. Ceiling panels are mostly quarter-inch plywood, and a few pieces of Masonite. I will probably use a small brush to daub texture paint on problem spots before picking up the roller.

939 Now, for the drag on a sphere. I'm going to use the turbulent drag assumption. The formula for terminal velocity there is

V^2 = 2mg/(pAC), where p is the density of the fluid, air in this case, C is the coefficient of drag, and A is the cross sectional area of the object moving through said fluid. Note this ratio of weight to the drag force.

For a sphere C is about 1/2, 0.47. Density of air is about 1.22 kg/m^3.

Now A. I'm gonna figure something the size of baseball. That's about 0.04m. It's cross section area is thus about .005 m^2.

Now, multiply that all together and divide by 2 and we get a denominator of .001.

Now, what's the weight of a cork baseball, thus. I come up with .06 kg (0.13 lbs).

Ratio of that to the above is .06/.001 = 60.

Square root of that is 7.7 m/s.

942

So terminal velocity for a cork baseball is just 7.7 m/s or 17 mph. Compare that to the vacuum free fall speed for the leaning tower of 33 m/s, and we conclude that air resistance would be a very significant factor for a cork baseball dropped from that height.

A lead baseball would hit the ground well before a cork one would.

This assumes my arithmetic is accurate. Too lazy to check it.

Y'all heard hepa filters are bad, didnt you? they are made of glass fibers. Carbon air filter is better because charcoal is neutral and is you friend sanwiched between layers of fabric.

Like engine-turning? I have seen the look you describe. No, I got
some premixed texture paint, and a roller sleeve in the form of a
3-dimensional random mesh. I am just going to roll it on, and expect a
rough texture with little peaks and valleys. If it covers most of the
seams, nail holes, cracks, and screw heads, it's a win. Ceiling panels
are mostly quarter-inch plywood, and a few pieces of Masonite. I will
probably use a small brush to daub texture paint on problem spots before
picking up the roller.

Are they giving her the HCQ cocktail, and if not, why not? Also look into Ivermectin. There was a report that a lab in Australia tested it, in vitro, and it killed 98% of the WuFlu virus. Ivermectin is used in humans for parasite control, and is safe. If i were sick with the WuFlu, and could not get the HCQ cocktail, I would sure bum some Ivermectin off a local cattle raiser, and take a shot of it. Human-appropriate dosage, of course.

Let's look at perspective on WuFlu vs flu. Flu is a regular thing, it's built into the system. We deal with it. 30K people die from it per year, spread out over 12 months.

Let's look at WuFlu. Death toll is now 10, 900. On Mar 1, there was exactly 1 death. The deaths thus have increased by four orders of magnitude in one month.

On March 15, the daily death rate was around 10 per day. It is now on the order of 1000 per day. That's two orders of magnitude in around 20 days.

That is not something to sneeze at.

While agreed, it appears that this Corona based thing has a greater rate of "infected/dead" than either the flu that we're used to, or the cold on which it's based.

I do quite believe that it's a "somehow released" strain from that damned Chinese lab.

The slow growth of it on the West Coast resulted in a bit of "herd immunity".

Then, it caught fire and multiplied, everywhere.

The Swine Flu of '09 and '10, was deadlier. On a case by case basis.

This thing though, burns brightly.

And that's why I think it'll also burn out, more quickly.

Bonus. The really sharp docs on this one sussed out which meds already in use, had already proven effective against it's close viral cousins.

And it seems, they've been right, all along.

And one more thing: blood transfusion, whole blood, the entire supply, if possible. The WuFlu fucks up the ability of hemoglobin to carry oxygen, and that is the root of the lung scarring that torabora mentions. Suck out the bad blood, pump in some new, and that might buy her time for her immune system to get ahead of the bug.

as far as ivermectin goes... im a horsewoman and its familiar stuff.

The IHME put up a detailed explanation of what changed in their model projections. Basically,they got much more real data, and that changed thing significantly:

http://www.healthdata.org/covid/updates

The latest real data showed some differences in assumptions that greatly affected the resource usage numbers. First, for those who die, they die quicker than thought. So the bodies get out of the hospital quicker.

That's bad, but good for resources. For those who live, they take much longer than assumed to get out of ICU.

Those who don't have to go to ICU get out a lot earlier than previous estimates. This is the biggie.

Reporters, for the most part, are not born stupid.
But they are immature people who like to play games. Their favorite game is Gotcha. They also like to report news that is not news at all but are lies. Thus, they cannot be trusted. And they hate it when a mature person spanks them in public.(Trump). They cry a lot. So I see reporters as adult children with a liberal bent on life and who take themselves way to seriously.

But I understand why they're building this aircraft after it's taken off - that's the deal, it's a new bug, and info is scarce.

Of course, just like the reporters today who couldn't let go of the IG report re testing, and imply that tests for brand new bugs should just magically appear instantly in adequate numbers, many apparently don't understand that new pathogens require new models, and you modify them as you gain more info and insight, and thus projections can radically change.

1018 RE: "Social Distancing"

After leaving the house during the day for the first time in three weeks I was surprised how many people were out and about. Shopping, going for walks, construction crews working within feet of each other, etc. (This in Maryland) Made me wonder if we'd better off with 10 days of super strict lock-down instead of several weeks of closing most businesses and recommending people stay home. I'm talking about telingl everyone that they must get food and medicine for 10 days and may not leave unless for medical emergency. It would only be 10 days but most who'd already had the virus would be over it after 10 days, and any new people would develop symptoms to know to keep staying home by end of 10 day run. In most states we are still seeing increasing numbers of new infections after three weeks "at home" so obviously people are still catching it outside the home. Somehow. Maybe a more severe, but shorter, order to stay home would be better for public health and the economy.

1027 Serious Cat, that exact approach has been at least considered in other places where it was more practical - briefer but near-total isolation. Depending on incubation and infectious duration, it can be a decisive measure against a communicable disease.

The leverage of isolation (really just a kind of variable quarantine) is maximum at the earliest stages (which one almost never knows, only diseases for which there is mature and ongoing surveillance are detected "up front"), and declines rapidly.

If the various measures adopted mostly in mid-March had been adopted right around the time of Trump's end to admissions from China (1/31), we'd be dealing with much smaller, almost negligible, problem. But yeah, try to imagine that in the real world.

The old Charleston accent is fading away. It's only the old timers would really still have it. It (and Savannah, too) were unique and quite distinct flavors, and there were reasons for that having to do with being a port city back in the Colonial days or something.

Also the low country r dropping think is going extinct as well.

My mother, born in Saluda, has a little of that trying to come out. She mostly talks Upstate, but in her old age, a little of the r dropping thing is coming out. Saluda was on the border of the r dropping line.

1066 The story of the couple screwing in the London park reminds me of one about C S Lewis and Charles Williams. They were walking, and saw a couple going at it. Williams, though, said it wasn't certain they were doing so. Lewis said "His arse was pumping like a fiddler's elbow".

It's in Lewis's letters. Many don't know that CSL had a very bawdy sense of humor.

1153 >> Anyone have an explanation why so very few kids under 10 have gotten coronavirus?

Hypothesis/SWAGs on this are: WuFlu virus attacks cells via the ACE-2 receptor. Children generally have less of these in the lower respiratory tract than adults. So, children likely don't have as much attack deep in their lungs.

I think what really people want to talk about is, were talking about people dying here. Were talking about significant health disparities. I think thats what people care most about, Lightfoot said, trying to deflect. The woman who cut my hair had a mask and gloves on so we are, I am practicing what Im preaching.

I think the haircut prohibition is going to become a big issue soon. Making it impossible for the public to get a cut for weeks on end while elected officials and media personalities look well kept on TV is going to annoy a lot of regular people. The Governors and mayors are going to have to make rules accommodating hair cutters.

1198 Good morning all.

I was sent a very interesting article discussing a new theory wrt how this virus works. It's published at medium.com but the direct link 404's. The link I was sent is via the wayback machine; the article was published 2 days ago and is now disappeared from what I can tell w/o too much digging. This is the link vis wayback machine:

https://tinyurl.com/rg7pl3r

titled: "Covid-19 had us all fooled, but now we might have finally found its secret."

An excerpt:"The past 48 hours or so have seen a huge revelation: COVID-19 causes prolonged and progressive hypoxia (starving your body of oxygen) by binding to the heme groups in hemoglobin in your red blood cells. People are simply desaturating (losing o2 in their blood), and that's what eventually leads to organ failures that kill them, not any form of ARDS or pneumonia. All the damage to the lungs you see in CT scans are from the release of oxidative iron from the hemes, this overwhelms the natural defenses against pulmonary oxidative stress and causes that nice, always-bilateral ground glass opacity in the lungs. Patients returning for re-hospitalization days or weeks after recovery suffering from apparent delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy strengthen the notion COVID-19 patients are suffering from hypoxia despite no signs of respiratory tire out or fatigue."

Searching that excerpt, I find a link to the original cited article, also at medium, published yesterday, titled:

"Mounting evidence for Covid-19 treatments"

Nah she's not that smart. She thought being a British royal would give her more status and freedom to run her mouth and be seen as being important. Then reality struck and the queen smacked her down and it was likely an ultimatum to shut up and fall in line or lose your status. And Harry is so whipped he chose to lose his status and she's trying to go back to what she knows now along with an even more inflated ego. I bet she was pissed when she found out the Canadians didn't want her. And it will be worse once she discovers her no longer royal status means dick to hollywood elites.
