  1. So do those pills really work? Just asking for my grandad
  2. If you want a succinct list https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lawsuits_involving_Donald_Trump Now I know you are going to say Wikipedia is in accurate but you can actually follow up the references for more authoritative sources. I have no idea how sound these law suits are and in fact this list includes cases where he is the plaintiff. But you are missing my point. I have no idea whether he is squeaky clean or not, those law suits will play out in the fullness of time, You put the proposition that My main point was the allegations against Hill
  3. One could mount the same argument regarding allegations against others for example Clinton and Biden's son. A sitting president cannot be prosecuted under federal law but after his presidency is a different matter. There are also many pending lawsuits regarding his past business activities as well as from financial dealings with his own family. https://www.justsecurity.org/72565/all-the-presidents-lawsuits-fraud-defamation-and-the-westfall-act-jean-carroll-mary-trump/ It is notable that every other presidential candidate releases their tax records. It should ring alar
  4. Which wars did Obama start rather than inherit?
  5. Just an observation on the quality of the information of this meme, I not that first on the Obama list is operation Ocean Shield. This was a NATO led operation to protect shipping from piracy in African waters. Should this be considered in a list of wars? An as for the other side I can see no mention of Trumps bombing of Syria or the drone attack's that continue. I would anticipate that if I could be bothered checking other items in these lists and it is difficult as this list is reproduced at a size that is difficult to even read. Wherever information comes from it is so
  6. Actually NASA back in the Apollo program used a mixture but most calculations were done in metric and then converted.
  7. My son owns a games developmemt company so he has all sorts of tech goodies. As soon as I can visit again I wiil spend some time on this.
  8. My son's flight sim setup.
  9. Other interesting youtube channels are Marcus House and Scott Manley
  10. Flightright what exactly is it you find funny. 911 health workers infected doing their job? People with health issues? Sorry but I don't really get what it is that amuses you perhaps you could be specific. I am always happy to have a rigorous factual debate and I am happy to consider any rigorous evidence but an emoji is not a debating point.
  11. No one is saying that younger people are most at risk, unless they do have a comorbidity. A comorbidity does not imply the someone is near to death and covid merely pushed them across the line a few weeks early. As a society we give health care to older people and people who have accidents or disease. We generally don't write them off to save a few bucks. Generally the comorbidities we are talking about are heart disease, blood pressure problems, diabetes type 1 and 2. These are people who are not necessarily on the way out in the near future. We are also talking about people who are h
  12. I am actually an optimist. I believe we will overcome this but not without effort. If you carefully read my posts you will notice that I am optimistic about recent vaccine trials and also treatments such as remdesivir etc. I am also not convinced that we are economically doomed either. I can actually be convinced of anything given rigorous evidence. There is quite a large uncertainty factor, we don't know how the virus will mutate, it good be for the better or for the worse.
  13. We have already reach over 700 in a day last week and this is with restrictions. remove those restrictions and the numbers can easily exceed those numbers. This is the nature of exponential growth. The number of ICU beds we have not only has to cope with covid patients but the background level of the usual accidents, strokes, heart attacks etc. Yes that is true, but they did this with pretty much the same measures we imposed here. The difference is we dropped the ball with quarantine guards. We now need to regain ground.
  14. I note that this article was written in mid april. We have much better data now regarding excess deaths. I am more than happy to link to the latest information if you wish. People push this idea that it is only the extremely old or people with preexisting conditions who are threatened by this. The idea seems to be that everyone who has a preexisting condition is only weeks away from death anyway. I wonder how many forum members are a few kilos over weight or have high blood pressure these conditions amongst many others do not mean you are about to drop dead. A large portion of our fo
  15. M61A allowing the virus to spread pretty much unchecked would produce a huge number of people of ALL AGES who may not die but still require hospital care. What do with do with them all? Your characterization of older people who die form covid as being close to death anyway from not looking after themselves is rather absurd. There would some people on this forum who have type 1 diabetes, expendable I guess. There are others here who may be being treated for cancer, expendable? Your right I do reject alternate methods that are proposed from ultra right wing or non medical experts. W
