    Yeah, that's a common lie among places that masquerade as news sources and print falsehoods under the aegis of opinion. The CDC wants doctors to assume COVID is a cause of death among deaths that meet the clinical criteria for CoVID death. That makes sense, because if there are multiple...

    Coronavirus Thread

    So my wife was exposed at work and she went to get a test at a drive thru test center. The NP stick was provided and she was told to do it herself and not let me help her. The instructions were to insert the tube until it became uncomfortable. The CVS test person did not mention to insert it...

    That is incorrect.

    The ACC will delay the start of competition for all fall sports until at least Sept. 1

    They play football in Michigan? Wait, nevermind that. They have higher education in Michigan? Are you sure?

    Might is a dangerous word. The difference between discerning God's creation and falling into idolatry is wrapped up in our ability to parse might. The apostle Paul tells us that the Greeks, having not the benefit of the law, but perceiving in the nature of creation the mandates of the law...

    General Investing Discussion

    You should expect that result from the Buffet's thesis. His whole schtick is buying fundamentally undervalued stocks. He's not so foolish nor so vain as to claim to find undervalued stocks AND the moment the market realizes it's valuation was irrational.

    I suspect you have hit upon the heart of the matter here. Skepticism is not a sliding scale to be applied to each issue as seems fitting to you. What you know or don't know is as true for each thing as it is for any thing. Hell, I'd advocate for a somewhat more lax standard than traditional...

    Sorry about the double post, but this should be answered too. It's because God saw fit to give me a brain, and to ask questions like "how do the total number of adverse reactions of the drugs on this list compare to the total number of patients prescribed hydroxychloroquine at all? Or the...

    In the end I suppose you never really know, do you? I hope that I'd have the courage to die as I've lived, confessing the gospel of Jesus Christ and those parts of creation which God has seen fit to reveal to me. I hope I'd ask why my doctor suggested hydroxychloroquine, just the same as I'd...

    Korean Pop at Bobby Dodd

    It's fun because Mercedes Benz is well known as a venue of last resort for concerts. Oops. Guess they should have included those acoustic engineers in the design phase. BDS will happily accept your failure money.

    So When Will Practice Start Again??

    You know, I'm starting to think there may be a fundamental conflict of interest between the system we've built and the college athletes who make it work.

    Wow. This is a moment to maybe step back and ponder the choices you've made.

    I'm sorry, you want me to believe that that you got out with a EE? Even the most zappy power engineer knows the difference between a language and a program. And respects the applications and beautiful memory allocation transparency of Fortran. Yeah, but that's a fundamental result of market...

    Ahmaud Arbery murder case

    This is the most likely outcome. If they do get him, it will be because he was dumb enough to admit to doing it to other people.

    No. That's just flat out wrong. The study examines regionally coupled and high frequency increases of unemployment claims. The frequency domain is not the same as the time domain. I suppose the fundamental hypothesis is that unemployment is a time invariant system. That actually seems...

    Come on, Supersize. I know you're a smarter guy than this. Analgesics, nerve pills, heart pills? Only two antineoplastics, and the two most common ones? No antivirals at all? It's because it's a list of the most adverse reactions. A number that's highly influenced by the number of total...

    Dolla Dolla Bill, y'all

    The only cash I've kept for like the last 10 years is for tipping. And then I keep forgetting to refill it. Use card, wipe with isopropyl alcohol. Keep it outside the wallet after it's used. Wash all contaminated clothing.

    It's also important to note that despite governor Jeanshorts refusal to act in a timely manner, Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville all took extremely quick action to implement social distancing. That largely arrested the spread before it got to the nursing home belt and gave those communities time...
