Re: Technology Chit-Chat

My Macbook Air battery won't charge, so I have that going for me. It's been at 85% for the past hour. I tried resetting the SMC and nothing has changed. Good times The batteries are not terribly difficult or expensive to replace. Nope, my wife is currently going through this. $699 at the Apple stor...

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

do you think the team will be okay without you though? Well, it's pickup. They'll have to rearrange the positions a little bit, roll the benches faster. Make do with 5 "guy who just hangs out at the blue line and cherrypicks for a breakaway" instead of 6. i played roller hockey growing up...

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

Yeah, the cold storage issue is being overblown. Is it ideal? No. Will it be more expensive and more of a pain? Sure. But it's not going to stop them from mass-distributing as fast as possible. Logistical problems can always be overcome with money and time to plan, and they've been planning on it f...

Re: The Politics Thread

I feel like you have a far better opinion of east coast elites then I do. I fully expect them to be welcomed back to those circles Not that I believe this is actually going to happen but this is an article I read regarding this last week: https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/14/politics/jared-kushner-ivanka...

anyone know how many AZ/Oxford vaccines have been earmarked/in production for US right off the bat?

it's better than that. the 70% is just the average of the one dose and two dose trials. if comparing apples to apples (moderna and pfizer are reporting on 2 doses), AZ/oxford's is right up there at 90%+.


yea I misread that, 90% after the 2nd shot

the flu vaccines are very different things Right, but I think he's just pointing out that it's amazing that we already have 3 vaccine candidates with success rates that far outpace how well the flu vaccine works even in its best years. Both that is incredible, and that there's still more groups to ...

Re: The Politics Thread

How can it be legal for the President to target selected state officials and try to bully them into overturning an election? One thing this election has showed me is just how vulnerable our elections are from within, rather than from the outside. There’s so much of it based on norms and a sense of ...

Ok, so there are definitely smart people that know Republicans are all full of horsefeathers and yet still choose to be one.

I understand the whole "playing along with the perception that he has power is only giving him more power" idea and I'm mostly not doom-bonering. But to the question of "what should people be doing," I'd like a little more planning on what *would* be done if he somehow succeeded...

ok so i didnt realize melatonin was a sleep aid or whatever so that probably explains how exhausted I get in the afternoons... If I take it before bed that’s almost what always happens to me.
