    I seriously wish they would just get on with declaring martial law already. Tell everyone to stay home for four week and the National Guard will distribute food. If everyone would stay home for four weeks, everyone who has it would get over it, everyone who was exposed will get it and also...

    Very interesting. Everything I have read is that the testing is very complicated. And getting a good sample is not always easy. There are apparently five ways they can get a sample - they range from a nose swab (which is what most of the drive-thru testing is doing) at the low end of accuracy...

    I got this one. Price is currently $37.95, which is almost double what I paid, but it is available now on prime (three left!): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003TJH3LI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Edit: Not sure why the link says "Robot Check" but it's a link to Amazon...

    Oximeters can be bought on Amazon now for under $20. I just picked one up. I think in a few weeks when this widely spreads, they will be completely sold out and gone. They are a good effective way to self-measure the intensity of your respiratory illness, should you come down with one (COVID or...

    Okay, since this is the conspiracy thread, let me float an interesting conspiracy theory. Remember in January/February when there was a rash of unexplained vaping-related deaths? The CDC suspected a vitamin E supplement used in the liquid mixture, but even they were never really sure...

    Generally, Omaha steaks (and other products they sell) come frozen in individual wrapped plastic bags, which are themselves in boxes. They ship these in big thick styrofoam coolers with dry ice, more than enough to keep everything frozen. I've had nothing but good results from them.

    Try OmahaSteaks.com -- they have some very reasonably priced value packs where you get a ton of frozen steak, burgers, chicken, etc - delivered by mail. It's a good resource if you're looking to stock up so you can stay inside a bit without having to go to the store. PS -- look for coupons...

    To the original poster: You actually may not have it. One interesting stat is that so far, less than 20% off the COVID-19 tests are coming back positive. That means that a lot of people are showing up at doctor's offices, presenting symptoms and case history than actually warrants a test, and...

    I'm in Austin and it seems to me that 1/3 of the population thinks this is all a liberal hoax and another 1/3 is stuck on "meh, it's just the flu." Kinda surprised it isn't worse here with all the tech industry travel back-and-forth between here and the Bay Area, CA.

    How to Teach the Gibson Bully a Lesson

    I think as long as Gibson keeps suing, spending, and losing the suits... it's all good with me.

    This is nuts. I'm 100% in favor of the lockdowns and shutdowns we've seen... but out on a golf course, in the corona-killing UV light, spread out hundreds of yards from other groups.... golf seems like a perfect refuge. My course shut down the clubhouse, then a few days later shut down the...

    Speaking of the accordion -- where the hell is Weird Al?! The country needs him now more than ever! "My Corona" instead of "My Sharona" "COVID-19" to the tune of "Come on Eileen" Weird Al -- step it up, man!

    Actually, there are a number of laws that give both federal and state health authorities the right to call for and enforce quarantines in the interest of public health. Completely constitutional. Here is a list of US federal laws, regulations, and executive orders regarding quarantines...
