Re: Good Coronavirus / COVID-19 Article

Bit of a mea culpa on my part - I called Trump an idiot for putting in travel bans so late, saying they don't matter any more. That's only partly true - they don't matter any longer to stop the initial spread of infection, but they WILL matter to prevent infections from coming back to the US after w...

Re: Good Coronavirus / COVID-19 Article

That was a good article, thanks for sharing it. Goes to show how easily 1 infected person could infect 50 others over something random like a skiing accident. As far as China numbers go, we should definitely be skeptical - but also remember that China took more draconian measures. It's a lot easier ...

Re: There we go

Unohana is still the most bitter memory of Bleach I have. All the build-up, none of the delivery. SS arc was so good, it's a shame the rest of it just never went anywhere.

Government using Coronavirus as an excuse to track people. This is super helpful to the CDC, but 100% a god-awful idea to let this fly.

Re: There we go

I’m woefully naive on matters of finance and economics. Are you saying if I get a Covid-19 stimulus check I’ll have to pay it back next tax season? And will I even get one considering my job never shut down? They did cut our salaries/hours. Here's an article with helpful information: https://www.ny...

Re: There we go

Haven't done any reading into this, just casual glance while I'm at work: The Senate bill would attempt to help address the immediate economic pain by expanding unemployment benefits and disbursing $1,200 checks to Americans who earn less than $75,000. The payment would be slowly phased out for inco...

Re: Good Coronavirus / COVID-19 Article

I guess I should have put a tl;dr… the bill doesn't have a number, it won't be voted on. Pelosi was a part of the Senate bill discussions. It was never intended to pass. Government bullshit, but not the kind you mentioned. It's a dumb as hell PR/optics move. Most all of the ones he mentioned are in ...

Re: There we go

Watch Contagion yesterday, I feel it's an exact copy of real life right now. A bit more to finish though cause I got side track with bbq and baby duty stuff. I don't know why they were recommending people not to watch it on my local radio, its a great movie to watch now. Also Queen and Slime was a ...

Re: Good Coronavirus / COVID-19 Article

Plot twist, Harvey Weinstein blood can make a serum to cure all women of COVID19. Oooh, here's a fun ethics game. You've got three choices: Harvey Weinstein's blood works as you say it does - a cure for COVID-19. But he's only got enough blood (if you drained him entirely) to cure 100 people. Do yo...

Re: The Promised Neverland Chapter 172

I'm way behind on this one... really thought it would have wrapped up by now though. Is it slowly moving or is it actually paced rapidly? Last I recall...

The queen died and the ratris showed up.
That was a few months ago though.

Re: Good Coronavirus / COVID-19 Article

I'm not seeing those trending anywhere. Can you send me a link? It looks like they voted the package down because it gave the Treasury department sole oversight over who the money goes to bailout corporations without any limits (unlike the TARP in 2008, which did have limits). There were provisions ...

My building in NY has been doing everything to get people to still come into the office. Now three people have tested positive. Even this morning they wrote that "X person who works on the 19th floor has tested positive. The floor was deep cleaned the day after he last came into the office, he's bee...

Re: There we go

The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies — part of a push for new powers that comes as the coronavirus spreads through the United States.
Good times.

I use the index fund (VTSAX) vs the ETF (VTI). Or are you talking VTIAX vs VXUS?

You ever think about investing in emerging markets aka non-US stocks? I'm a big fan of JL Collins and the Stock series ...most of the heavy hitters in the US markets are already so heavily monetizing in international markets that I don't see the point. There was a time years and years ago where I t...

Re: Good Coronavirus / COVID-19 Article

If only our leader had a brain. Sounds like your leader's is gone too. Travel bans would have helped... months ago. Now it's pretty much futile. Every little bit helps, but it's also why the market tanked immediately after Trump announced the ban. The ban does nothing to help detect and stop it, esp...

Re: There we go

Giant shitshow up here. Mask shortages, doc shortages, people telling the wrong people to stay home instead of come to their appointments...

Meanwhile we can't even get tests for everyone with symptoms.
