Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Things are looking VERY good so far for hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin. Both are long-approved medications with significant amounts in existence and significant production facilities already operating. Could you provide some citations to the tests and trials you've seen? I haven't yet seen any cit...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Meanwhile, my employer is now deploying a reduced bus service as of Monday. Fortunately, everyone still keeps their job (for now), as well as their current pay. Until June 15, that is. After that, the agreement with the union runs out, and we'll have to see how the situation develops, to figure out...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Ya know, most of the articles I've read about the idiots who swallow fish-tank cleaner say that chloroquine phosphate is an additive in the cleaner.

I wonder what else is in that cleaner, and to what extent the various ingredients are contributing to the damage.

Re: What about the Vivaldi browser?

Firefox and its various forks have one specific feature I rely on: one can put tags on bookmarks, and in many ways use the tags as if they're bookmark folders - the critical difference being that a bookmark can be in only one folder but can have multiple tags... Do any of these other browsers have t...

Re: Library Apps?

The closest I can come to specific suggestions is for ebook reading software... more general advice follows. It's okay if an app goes to the internet to acquire data, e.g. look up info on a book that you just scanned for the first time, but I expect the app to then save that data itself - not to go ...

I got to agree with the nay sayers on this one. The tacos are bigger than he is.
I've known some dogs that were this optimistic about their stomach capacity.

Although some dogs take a different approach.

Re: Kinda Jumpy 2020-02-07

Get a box of chocolate and two cards. Make sure their envelopes are different colors, red and white. The red one gets a romantic theme where you spill your true feelings. The white is a fun one where you put goofy stuff in. Put everything in your backpack. On the big day itself wait to see how Shaw...

Granted, I have offered to help with bills in the past, and they kept telling me they don't need help (though they would also later bitch at me for not paying any of the bills). Suggestion (ignore it if you prefer): go around them. Take proof that you live at the same address, go to the electric co...

Now this is a good hobby for young Pickle to learn both patience and precision while making tiny carved statuary instead of carving canyons in plutonic bedrock or something. Good for her!

Re: More stuff to not work with...

For some buyers/eaters, "sweet" is a big part of the attraction. The initial taste of sugary sweetness from the powdered sugar is more of a draw then the taste of the donut itself. I find that powdered sugar on the surface of a donut has a slight negative effect on its sweetness - not enough, thoug...
