  1. You really need to stop talking, right now. This post is disgraceful. You have no idea what you are talking about and this is completely unhinged. Someone earlier mentioned insulting doctors in a context in which it didn't make sense, but this is a really insulting post. You should be ashamed of yourself. You said in another post that the "study literally cherry picked high risk patients and withheld the drug until it was too late" but this is not what happened at all. Did you even read the study? Patients weren't picked to receive treatment or not for the study. It is a retrospective st

  3. Just a quick update on Mrs. GM.... She was really, really bummed after her 5K. To the point where I felt horrible for getting her involved in this to begin with. I had already texted @gruecd afterward that she wouldn't be joining us for any further events. She was particularly aggravated because she ran the long run 4 days earlier and knows she wasn't in the right shape to run the 5K even though she had an excellent run. I also think she's much more of an endurance runner (she always does better at longer distances) than a short distance runner, just the opposite of me. Well, I

  6. Just want to give one more shout out to chet. I've been buying and selling CYDY (mostly holding, though) since October when it was sub-30 cents. Sitting on 7000 shares at a cost basis of zero. That's a cool (unrealized) gain of almost 20 grand. I thought it could never get any better than Mansion (that was either worth $1000 or $2000, I don't recall) and it more than makes up for the cobalt disaster. You're the man, chet.

  8. This will be my last response to you on this, but you and a couple of others in this thread insist on following only the experts that fit your position. I am not talking about Facebook post, etc. It is the complete dismissal of potential conflicting ideas. And yet we continue to be told we don't know enough about this virus........So which is it? We know enough to dismiss alternative ideas outright? Or we don't know enough and even the "experts" positions need to be looked at as not set? This point is getting bogged down with all the I believe I had it in Jan/Feb. We should absolut

  12. Ok, feeling the need to post as it seems some in here are seeing this as one side vs. another when in reality it is undoubtedly a continuum of perspective that we each fall upon. This has truly been one of the greatest threads I have ever participated in on this board and that's because I think for the most part many of us see value in ALL the posts, learn from each other, and don't take it personally when our post is questioned by one person or another. As someone who has "liked" posts from those across the continuum and has had some of my posts both liked AND critically questioned, I can o

Comparing the president to random guys on a message board is a big part of the problem. I would have hoped you expected more from the President...

  14. Thus the problem with many in this thread. If you do not believe in their "group" think you are dismissed and ridiculed. Why you ask? Because "the"(ir) experts said so. And yet at times in the same response they will say we don't know enough about Corona.....it is a novel virus. I have tried to point out this dichotomy and get rebuffed. Bottom line is we do not know enough to complete accept group think and dismiss anything that does not follow the "experts".

  15. It's quiet, because you have latched onto every fringe possibility, and many of us got tired of responding. You latched onto the Stanford study early on and touted the "as early as November 17th" as the most likely finding. You talked on and on about how hospitals were overrun in December and January with flu-like patients - yet offered no evidence to support that. Then you went on with just about every other post linking to the benfits of hydroxychloroquine. I can't speak for everyone here, but...

  17. The only point I agreed with regarding lock downs was to keep the medical system from being overloaded. Sure, I consider myself a risk at the moment and will SIP, but as far as opening back up, as long as our systems do not get overwhelmed, I just don't see how anyone can argue we shouldn't work towards some sort of normalcy. We cannot stop this virus from spreading in some fashion, and our main focus should be making sure no one dies from it that didn't have to because of inadequate resources. If we can maintain a status which keeps us above that threshold, I don't understand why people think

  18. Had to watch this one twice to get some of the nuances. Weird to see Kim be more Saul than Jimmy with respect to planning out next steps with Howard -- I think we now know how she gets the money to pay the vacuum guy to disappear -- force the Sandpiper settlement, take the 20% cut of HHM's end, and convert it to freedom for Kim while Saul toughs it out until he, too, needs to bolt for Nebraska. Man, my heart sinks for Nacho. What a bad situation, and I fear we just saw the root of Jimmy's quote "It wasn't me, it was Ignacio!" -- and that we're going to see his demise really soon.

  20. It's like xmas in April for most of us, both fantasy players and NFL fans in general. A chance to bury ourselves in the cave, have a few drinks and escape. Especially since it's been rough on everyone lately. I could use the escape right now. Hell, work's been harder on me since I started working from home everyday than it was when I went into the office. I've been burning the candle on both ends with the current project I'm on. I'm looking forward to tonight to say the least. I hope everyone else enjoys it too.

  22. Can't go so far as to say he's wrong when his exact words were "IT'S CLOSER to the flu than many thought". When the timeline starts being lengthened (as it's starting to) then this actually does start to mirror the length of the flu season. It's still much more of a problem than the flu due to it's contagiousness but we've known that for quite awhile now. But as more is learned it truly does begin to share more and more with the flu including a narrowing gap between their respective mortality rates. When the US has 61,000 flu deaths, approximately 1,567 of them would be New York City

  23. Justaflu bros won't ever be right. This is far more contagious than the flu. The problem is the "justaflu" label gets applied far too broadly. Justaflu bros are the extreme and low populated group of people who are congregating in the tens and hundreds demanding we open everything today and that this was all a hoax. A segment here and in other places wants to toss anyone who disagrees with them into that same bin. What's really funny and goes to your point is the fact that scientists and doctors have used the flu to compare and contrast from the start. Yet when anyone cited them, they drew the

  25. That reminds me - you mentioned some of the negatives about taking up running later a few days back. As someone who tends to at some times be over-competitive, one of the nice things to me about being a later in life runner is that there's no younger, faster me to compare my times to. At some point as I age I will have to come to grips with slowing down, but for now year over year improvement and new lifetime PRs are still well within reach.

  26. Yep, it's been awfully quiet here regarding the emerging news that the timeline is being shifted by the professionals. I got blasted by the usual suspects for suggesting it was in California in December and Nevada in January. The ongoing Stanford study was mocked for suggesting the same. Yet look where we are today... New virus timeline: California had 2 deaths weeks earlier Gavin Newsom now thinks there is reason to look back all the way to December... But I was told that wasn't possible? What could be the reason why earlier cases were missed? Hmm, the below so

  27. it's a fair question but I think you're overrating the Redeem Team a bit. The Dream Team's frontcourt advantage would be a big deal. Dwight Howard was never the kind of transcendental talent that people thought back then - he was huge, super athletic and a great shot blocker, but he was also always a mental midget who cared more about partying than winning and didn't handle pressure very well. Ewing and Robinson were a million times tougher and meaner than Dwight, and they would have worked him over and made him quit, imo. And if Dwight goes to the bench, we'd be asking guys like Bosh and Booz

  28. If you bother to look at the science, which of course you won't, you'd see that if it was held to the same standards as other drugs, not some cherry picked absurd standard, it's performing as well as any other. All of them have to be introduced before the patient is too far down the road to have the sterling results this drug is expected to have. Yes, that's an agenda. When some people are trying to warn that it's too risky to use a 60 year drug with a safe track record as an early measure, they're setting it up to fail and then running to scream about it when it does. You don't have a clue of

  29. Did I mention that good news/results does not fly well in here as long as Trump is POTUS? You better believe that if this was happening under Obama every single on of these posters would be touting how great it is and glad that Obama was talking about it. It's only because Trump is in office that they are ridiculing it. In absolutely no way would they be accusing Obama of having blood on his hands.

  30. Just wore these shoes for my 3 mile run. Not knee "pain", but I could feel "something" in the same spot while running today despite doing what I could to make sure I landed more on the inside of my foot with some pronation. That wasn't there yesterday at all. Reading this and seeing what happened today, I wonder if these shoes were the culprit. It seems it was forcing my feet to land differently from the start (likely using different muscles and the subsequent soreness after a couple miles). I'm going to hang these up at this point and stick to what I know. If I go back to the K

  35. Dearest Popeyes - I believe I owe you an apology. I played poker with my dad and two teenage sons last night until 10:30pm. Though we ate dinner before we played at 7, we worked up quite a hunger and I ordered my son to drive us to your store for late-night take out. There was no line, but you were open. I eagerly ordered three of your spicy chicken sandwiches and 6 of your biscuits. I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with just one bite....until now. And now, I can't stop thinking about your sandwich. The spicy chicken worked in perfect concert with your special bun.

  36. Yeah, that's a pet peeve of mine. I try to limit running talk with non-running co-workers, but if I mention I, for example, have a 5K coming up, the typical response is "oh, that will be easy for you". Not if I'm running as fast as I can...

  37. That official was Dr. Nancy Mesonnier, whom Trump apparently threatened to fire. This whole situation highlights one of the core aspects of Trump's leadership style: he fires subordinates who bring him bad news, which causes his subordinates to suppress bad news, which then allows him to avoid responsibility by firing subordinates who failed to bring him bad news. His supporters cheer this method because, in part, it creates an illusion of power and decisiveness -- Trump appears powerful by threatening to fire Mesonnier or Fauci or whoever. And that's all that really matters. Th
