  • We’re all questioning recent illnesses right now, but based on the behavior of COVID-19 in China, SK, Europe, New York, etc. this virus has not been circulating in the US prior to February of this year. I look forward to the antibody tests being br…
  • PCP = Primary Care Physician
  • Wow, I leave for a few hours... @JamieT I hope you’re okay, or even if you’re positive that this is the worst of your symptoms. I’ve read about all kinds of non-standard symptom sets being positive for the virus with the only consistent thing being…
  • Not to just shoot stuff down. I think we could get through this by guaranteeing medical coverage and a universal basic income at the poverty line for every person/family until the employment market recovers to a reasonable level (like 6%-ish). Put i…
  • Jim said: Giovanni said: Denmark's stimulus plan: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/03/denmark-freezing-its-economy-should-us/608533/ Basically, if a company keeps a worker on the payroll rather than lay them off, the gov…
  • Alkaid13 said: Dispatch from insanity-ville: Just had an impromptu meeting that was supposed to “cheer me up” somehow after I expressed some concern about the current state of the country; it was “explained” to me that, apparently, 5G “break…
  • Teresa from Concord said: Shum said: Salt Lake City was hit with an earthquake this morning, so that's the end of rational thought around here... Both Goldfield and Magna. I live in Cali so of course I have an earthquake app. And t…
  • Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, The BBC, Washington Post, Washington Examiner, New York Times, Washington Post, Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, The DNC, The RNC, CDC, WHO, all of Europe, Australia, China, South Korea, Singapore, etc. …
  • Tom Hanks would have to be in on it. Inconceivable!

  • Also, I’m constantly irritated by the use of the term panic. This is not panic. This is just some fear. If we use panic to describe what is happening then what do we call actual systemic/societal breakdown with violence, looting, arson, etc. Buying …

  • Disappointed, but I’d rather have them not do a follow up than force one without strong ideas. Maybe he’ll come back to it in a few years if something strikes him.
  • Just for perspective despite all the gut punches like GoT and the learning experiences like Starburns we did have a good stuff in 2019 like True Detective, Deuce, Legion, Stranger Things, Mr. Robot, Chernobyl, Groundhog’s Day Marathon, etc. BM TV h…
  • It’s not the first time a studio did a limited end of year release to qualify for awards. It’s a marketing strategy, now it’s a Golden Globe winner when it goes wide release which will help the box office, and they may get another bump of it does we…
  • Looks like Iran hit unoccupied areas of the military bases as a statement that they could hit us, but without an insurmountable provocation. Also looks like someone was able to get a leash on Trump so he didn’t initiate a knee jerk response. Both s…

  • I don’t think the Jedi being rare would result in them being unknown. They’d be like Superman. Everyone would know about them, but their deeds and abilities would be twisted in gossip, myth, and legend because so few would witness them firsthand.
  • Fantasy, and magical science fiction, only work in the long run when there are consistent rules around the fantastic stuff. They don’t need to be spelled out in the story, but the author(s) need to know them and stick within them even when it’s not …
  • Keri Russell’s character (Zorii) is all: I want to see your brains splattered in the snow Poe, and the bounty on this Rey girl will just almost get me out of the whole you dug me into!Then she’s all: wait a tick, I actually like Rey now, so now I li…
  • I’m not diabetic, but I do insurance underwriting and it’s a common malady so I run into it quite a bit. Also my sister was diagnosed type 2 a couple of years ago and my grandmother had type 1. Your doc may try some additional/different meds if you…
  • I pulled up a conversion chart and that 13.9 mmol/L is 250mg/dL which are the units we use here in the US. You won’t be able to cure through weight loss. Just try to stay on top of it and don’t get discouraged if you need to take some medication in …
  • That kind of ketosis/binge-break/ketosis/binge-break cycle is bad for diabetics. It’s easier to control a diabetic with a consistently bad diet than one who cycles like this between good and bad unpredictably. End up either over-treating while you’r…
  • Some Type 2 diabetics can control with a careful diet regimen, some Type 2 can be “cured” with significant weight loss if you’re overweight. Some Type 2 diabetics can’t. I’d encourage you to find a diet that works for you on a sustainable basis as t…
  • Agree they did an admirable job of adapting a difficult book. Chad Coleman was there, just not for very long.
  • They dropped it a little early on Amazon. Just finished Ep 1

  • JaimieT said: @Murderbear - "Obviously if you have eyeballs or have paid attention at all, it's obvious why someone would fall in love with Angela as she is an amazing badass." Nothing about why Doctor Manhattan would do anything is obvious …
  • cdrive said: Anyone else ever see Coherence?  If you liked this episode and movies like Primer, which Jim and A.Ron have mentioned multiple times, you should check out Coherence.   I saw it, and agree it’s of a piece. I’d add I’ll Follow Y…
  • JaimieT said: Can someone tell me why the fuck DM is with Angela? (I stopped watching the show and this is hard to find on reddit.) Much appreciated. I like to think that she’s his “type” because she has gone through so much unlikely trage…
  • I know this is a dead horse, but if he doesn’t know that something is going to happen in the future, then what about giving Angela a rundown of how they will have a 10 year relationship that will end in tragedy, and they will have a fight six months…
