  1. My in-laws have a 50 year anniversary and it was previously decided we'd celebrate in the early summer. Well, my wife got a call yesterday and plans changed, they are now planning a 14-20 person (that we know of) celebration at a restaurant Sunday - against state restrictions. Not that restaurants in their county care about such things re: the overblown pandemic, GB rural counties. Major guilt trip laid how my wife is the only child not coming, that it's harmful to social development of our own children to keep them isolated from cousins, etc. Wife has been crying off and on for 2 days. It bot
  2. Having watched Bateman and Johnson through their Gopher careers, I don't agree Bateman is more talented. I just haven't seen a basis for a statement like that. I think the NFL will be proven to be wrong if he's drafted that high. He was a good, not great, Big 10 receiver. Not even in the same area code as Michael Thomas (prior post), who I enthusiastically ranked as a top 5 rookie pick. (ETA: To be clear, I meant dynast rookie pick, not overall draft)
  3. at Republicans "demanding" witnesses in an impeachment trial. I had hopes the party would turn the page on Trump after this - like the majority of America has - but they are definitely going down with the ship.
  4. Can someone explain the new CDC guidance that those who are vaccinated do not need to quarantine after exposure so long as they meet certain timing metrics? Even in the guidance, CDC acknowledges transmissibility by those vaccinated remains "uncertain." CDC goes on to say "The CDC said quarantine recommendations for vaccinated people will be updated when more data are available, or when more vaccines have been authorized." Intuitively, guidance like this would follow the science and 'no need to quarantine' would suggest they are not any more a risk to transmit than anyone else who has unk
  5. Pretty depressing to see this... one of my favorite dynasty threads. One of the few that could be found at that time. RIP F&L, your spirit lives on.
  6. Out of curiosity, any reason you skipped past the home equity suggestion? I've been considering the same dynamics you describe re: timing of buy/sell and just assumed I'd bridge with home equity (which would be quickly repaid once the house sells) and never even considered doing anything with 401K.
  7. This thread is encouraging. I probably began <> 220 Jan 2, and have been doing exercise bike 45 min a day since, and have incorporated arm curls and abs as I gain momentum. Hoping to get down closer to 200 by late Spring. I won't have much to contribute in terms of progress reports because I choose not to weigh myself during these routines (getting back to a baseline every 2-3 years). It's motivating for some, but the 'no progress' scale days undermine my ability to maintain a longer term view. I just trust the routine. I don't do much in terms of diet food, measuring quantities, watchin
  8. Right, perhaps thanks to a open letter from a 10 former defense secretaries.
  9. Myanmar following the Trump/Republican playbook I see. This is why it matters for democracy.
  10. Right, apparently this is going to be a "Did you order the code red!?!" "You're @%$& right I did... because rigged election!!" trial.
  11. I'm not sure that too much is being made of it. I think it is necessary for people to understand how vax does/does not work. Case in point, I have avoided some in my circle because I know them not to be safe in their conduct. I got a text saying they will be getting vaxed and we should get together soon. If their vax leaves me exposed to their conduct, obviously that's info I'll want to understand.
  12. What was the specified goal before Jan 20? How much outrage about no stated numeric goal? That's my point. Goals are meaningless. Action is meaningful. Communicating delivery schedules to states is crucial. Ensuring that states have funding and resources to effectuate administration is crucial.
