Re: My personal count

I know several people reluctant to get the vaccine, because vaccines rushed into production have a fairly bad track record. (Swine flu, anthrax.) I have no intention of getting it. Could you please provide evidence of the ‘fairly bad track record’ of the H1N1 and anthrax vaccines to which you allud...

Re: How long have you been without power at your home?

For me it was a few days at most. For other parts of the county it was over a week after a derecho. The power company restored the electric power to the county seat first which then made gasoline available at the the two stations in the town. The store farther out wasn't able to pump gasoline until...

Re: You've been assimilated by the Borg.

There are plenty of brands other than Gen-wreck around. (Honda, Kohler, Yanmar, and Honeywell come to mind-Cummins or Kubota for big ones.)

Re: Darwin awards/CSB/PlanB, bit of history

Congratulations. When will Hen return? Has she been living with her mother or her daughter while down under? Looking at July at the moment, but that may be wishful thinking. She's living with he mother, but spending as much time with Hatch as possible. So...you're in Britain and she's back in Austr...

Look, juts to save argument, just remove all gender qualifications from sport. Everyone competes on an equal basis, no "men's" or "women's" teams or events.
No, that would never be acceptable!

Re: Weighted blankets

I've always believed that the use of any substance which adversely affects your job performance can be a valid reason for discharge (or your employer can choose to get you rehab or other help); if not, it's none of your employer's business. Unfortunately, many employers believe otherwise; I once le...

Re: Here's Your Chance to Blow Up Trump

Casinos were never known for taste. And again: 40 years seems to be a fairly typical casino lifespan. The Sands lasted 43 years. The Boardwalk lasted 40. Dunes/Oasis 28. The Landmark less than 30. The Stardust lasted 48 years, though its tower annex <20. The SIlver Slipper lasted 38. The Silver City...

Re: Here's Your Chance to Blow Up Trump

It’s disgusting that a building only 40+ years old has been allowed to deteriorate to the point where demolition is the only viable option for it. 40 years for a hotel is a fairly typical lifespan...renovating it often costs more than demolishing it and rebuilding something else, especially since e...
