COVID-19

But you get why it's unnecessary to throw a jab at someone out of nowhere right? Especially in a thread that's supposed to be devoid of politics. Claiming that you think PHDs and MPHs aren't smart because you have an aversion to science isn't a political take imo. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/An...

Shyster's thread of Spaaaace.

I was pretty excited to be able to show my daughter Mercury last night. It's usually very hard to see, although over the next couple weeks it will be pulling further and further away from the Sun in the evening sky. Meanwhile, Venus is getting less visible after a few months of pretty awesome views....

Her thread was fine. It wasn't any new information at all, and it's basically what the CDC has been saying all along. Calling out a user by name was unnecessary. Just looking for a fight for some reason. Exactly. I wasn't referring to the Twitter thread, hence why I said "post". I actually liked th...

This is a good thread, but she's a master of public health, so Freddy might not want to read: https://twitter.com/meganranney/status/1264589288659922945?s=19 This is a needlessly instigating post. Do you think an MPH automatically makes someone an authority on, well, everything in healthcare? There...

Thank you!! The Weird Al show was fantastic. My wife outdid herself this year. She got me: -A really nice Audio-Technica turntable for my office -A retro vinyl storage case with six LPs in there (including Rust Never Sleeps, Hot Rocks, Invisible Touch, and Master of Puppets) -A bottle of Blackened, ...

Military Affairs & History

I have no idea if this is advertised or what because the friend of mine who did this seems to always find unique things to do. But he was in France a couple years ago and found a company who will take you up in a biplane and fly you over the trench lines. He said it was insane how clear it was from...

Colossal TV Show thread

Eh it makes the whole thing feel totally disingenuous now. While the audience was sending in stories, videos, original content to John, he was fielding offers from major corporations. Obviously sponsors have been a big part from MLB to AT&T but those were done in a charitable way. There’s nothing c...

OK I finally got around to starting to listen to this. It's great stuff. Under the Table and the first track are fantastic. Haven't had a chance to listen to anything past the first 5 but I'm impressed so far.

Is the assult on Brecourt Manor still taught as a small unit tactics masterclass? I know it was at the time the show was made. Sure is. There is a documentary on it that came out about 10 years ago, that was done in conjunction with an event honoring Malarkey. Thanks in large part to their actions,...

Apparently Kobe's wife is the only one of the surviving family members that is going after the pilot's family for damages; the rest declined and are only suing the company. That seems tremendously shitty.

Well, played my first round of the year today. By and large it was bad, although as always I hit some fantastic shots that will bring me back next time. I did hit the pin from about 110 yards out, which was exciting.

This is a shameful display of whataboutism, even by CNN's low water-carrying standards. They actually used the "some say" line.

Wife and I continued our (long) catch up in the MCU last night....watched GOTG 2. On the whole I enjoyed it... I know the tone is deliberately different than the other MCU films but at times it was jarring and even distracting. The exchange about putting Drax's dookie in his pillow comes to mind. A ...

Love these Gaucho. I just finished my re-read of the Thrawn Trilogy for the first time in 20 or so years. Man, what a fantastic ride. As far as I'm concerned, the books in the Star Wars EU are canon, despite Disney saying otherwise. I forgot how much I loved exploring the wider world of that univers...

I have not had more than two drinks in about six months. Tonight, my daughter went to my sister-in-law and her husband's house until Sunday.
