Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I don’t know the feasibility of it or if it’s really even possible but I’m kinda surprised hospitals/clinics (especially ones with large networks within a state) haven’t dedicated a few of their facilities for non-rona procedures and practices. I know at the start the thinking was they’d be overran...

Agreed. It's all high fiving puddy cuz Sue Ellen isn't wearing a bra again, or sitting around with Bryan Cranston watching the Elaine and Peterman show... No real downsides

Re: The Cooking Thread

My girlfriend and I are both pretty good home cooks, though I usually end up QB'ing most meals with her chopping, saucing, plating, etc. She handles ALL the baking, mostly cuz my 'let's not get fat' plan revolves around NOT having sweets in the house but she's a heathen who disagrees with this notio...

Re: Video Game Thread

Played about an hour into the FF7 remake...hitting all the nostalgia buttons, although I do miss the old turn based combat. There's a classic combat mode, but it's not the same. I get where you're coming from with the combat controls, but the new active controls really grew on me a few more hours i...

I just had a booze delivery from Bitter Pops in Roscoe Village/Lakeview. If anyone is near them, I highly recommend checking them out. Ordered at 2:11PM. They were at my door at 2:20PM. Granted I'm like 6 blocks away, but still, I've seen breweries offering delivery in their neighborhoods for next ...

Sony released some info/pics of the PS5 controller today... Looks straight outta Oblivion (the Tom Cruise movie, not the elder scrolls game). I like it, though I was hoping for standard back buttons, oh well. https://blog.us.playstation.com/2020/04/07/introducing-dualsense-the-new-wireless-game-cont...

Been slowly working through a 30 packs of Hamm's as a beer back for an old fashioned or a mezcal bloody mary since shelter in place started.

Evidently Trump called ARod and JLo to ask their advice on the crisis. Also today called our governor "Half" Whitmer. At least once a day I marvel at the fact that this guy's face will be all over documentaries done about this time in our lives a couple decades from now. I know she will n...

I'm sorry you can't get tested. Hope it's nothing and that you and your family are safe. It must be very scary to be in your situation. Yeah, the stress of not knowing is as bad as anything.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Looks like it's a 6M signing bonus for Graham, meaning the 9M guaranteed is 6M this year against the cap, and 3M next year if we cut him... Still very much not a fan of the move
