Re: Right now I'm reading

I'm certainly not a holocaust denier, but I am interested in the idea that action by the US and our allies caused or at least accelerated its execution. My mom says I'm not allowed to talk about the Holocaust. And really, it's beside the point. The real idea is much bigger, in that we are all like ...

Re: "Free Trial" VR Headset: Oculus Quest 2

My adult gaming experience consists of playing Eve Online maybe 6 years ago, which is essentially the opposite of VR. But finding a clever way to blow up some...

I have lived long enough to observe all manner of insane depravity, but until this thread I had no idea that anyone would make BBQ sauce with mustard or mayo.
The road to Alabama is a path to many culinary tastes some consider to be unnatural.

"Free Trial" VR Headset: Oculus Quest 2

If you order an Oculus Quest 2 from Best Buy, you can return it an any point until mid-January. I did demos of Magic Leap (and it was obvious that wasn't going anywhere), Oculus and HTC Vive when it first came out, and have been excited to see what's coming but didn't want to invest in a gaming PC t...

Re: Is foam rolling a meme?

I got a regular foam roller in my early 30's and thought it was bullshit. "You need firmer foam" I got a rumble roller and found it to be bullshit.

COVID Safety Gear Available

My local small chain hardware store had both N95 and P100 respirators available today. I realize among some folks there is a question of mask efficacy, but for N95s you are definitely getting inbound protection, so they may be worth considering if you have vulnerable family members or people who res...

No party has lost the Presidency after one term in over 100 years.
1980 was, let's see, gonna go with less than 100 years ago. 1992 was even more less than 100.

I think this leaves out the fact Trump is almost certainly going to be prosecuted for several crimes (no pardons for the state level ones), and has terrible lawyers. His current antics will get him banned from Twitter once he's no longer President, unless he can get some message discipline (LOL). He...

Re: On behalf of Sangoma - who is going to win the election for US President?

Trump can come back but would lose if counting of votes stopped now. Looking at how razor thin many of the states are is kind of unbelievable. And, some obscure 3rd party candidate in one state could literally be responsible for who does and doesn't win the presidency. Part of this is the sequence ...

You didn't read the document, yet again. Hit CTRL+F and search on "Joe". Go ahead and cite. They often refer to him as Vice-President. But they do helpfully include a list of key findings on pp 4-6.

The best thing about going to places like France is you realize they're incredibly racist about completely different things.
