    The COVID-19 Mega-Thread

    Terrifying how societies can be so easily ripped apart. Not only am I becoming anxious about the election but also the lead up to it. I am waking in the middle of the night from bad dreams. Also realizing Trump knows his goose is cooked if he loses and that his desperation will forment some ugly...

    It's Quiet Out There Today [2020]

    Getting very interesting on all these threads, the discussions here can be a bit pedestrian but for the most part I do learn much from all of you. The level of maturity has vaulted up tremendously since the beginning of the pandemic and strangely the American trolls seem to have disappeared.

    The COVID-19 Mega-Thread

    I have known many people in the phama industry and many benchers who devote their lives and careers to doing the right thing. This is an unprecedented time in human civilization and the pandemic has thrown us many different obstacles, many of which we won't see the outcomes of for many years...

    Big pharma isn't going to fudge findings under any circumstances, these scientists and their families will be taking this vaccine themselves.

    The COVID-19 Mega-Thread

    COVID-19 is evolving and it isn't going away anytime soon. Stories and accounts from friends from NYC are getting grimmer by the week. The one good outcome is that people don't have any problems finding parking spaces in Brooklyn anymore. In all seriousness it is getting very ominous for friends...

    The Donald Trump Thread [Politics]

    I just finished reading Laurie Garrett's OpEd in Foreign Policy and she seems to have been fed some interesting health info on Trump and she is more or less predicting that his early stages portend a very difficult several weeks for POTUS. Basically she thinks he's going to have a tough time...

    I have been doing some extensive research on masks. If you are wearing a cotton mask, throw it out. Make sure it is made with high quality tightly woven quilting cotton: two layers.
