    Here is an analogy for health care in the United States (in my situation anyway): It's like jumping out of an airplane with an antique parachute you found in the hayloft of a barn. Will it slow your fall a bit? possibly. Will you have broken bones when you reach the ground? likely. And the best part is I'm paying about a third of my pension for the "privilege" to have that rotted old parachute.

    The possibility of Covid19 re-infection

    I was wondering if anyone else was making a MikeW/Hawke connection. I keep trying to place Hawke on a spectrum & having to add in some BravoBravo to the mix (minus the stupid memes of course).

    One month after opening, Covid 19 spiking

    Interesting, I have actually cut back quite a bit also, though today is a little bit of an aberration, just finished off a can of Reuben's Brews pilsner & it's only 14:30 here. Going to have a steak dinner tonight & will quite likely wash that down with M&J African amber, might have a nightcap with the other Reuben's I have in the fridge which is a summer IPA. The big change for me is I quit the Saturday night bourbon, it's somewhat expensive (for a half gallon anyway) & I'm trying to trim some weight, always been partial to a mixer with my liquor so there went some sugar I didn't need. And no more potato chips!

    The F1 2020 thread

    Had kind of senior moment when I 1st checked the broadcast time, 5:55AM?!! It was when I went upstairs & checked again that the light bulb came on Austria & the Craft Beer King, wait that's not right it's the Dreadful Thing, err um I mean Red Bull Ring, that's what I meant. All good though, got a mind like a steel flap, I mean crap, I mean trap!

    This reminds me of a Mexican restaurant chain in these parts, but relates to the placement of urinals, the 1st time I visited one of these establishments I was struck by one pisser at toddler height & the other at something that would suit a 7 footer comfortably, since it was my first visit I assumed it was simply someone that couldn't read a tape measure. Until I visited another one of their restaurants in a different locale, same exact setup, kind of a weird gimmick when you think about it (I used the "tall" pisser, some what manageable at 5'-11).

    Why does the shopping trolley jammed under the bow in the 1st pic make it all the more sad?

    ^this, certainly Doug was tedious with his dare I say, trumpery of his ideas & accomplishments, but this other guy? let me put it this way, nobody would be happier than me to see Amway Magic crack in half & sink to the bottom, the howls of how it is SO-O unfair would be pure GOLD!

    Brother, I hear ya, after 40 plus years in the Iron Workers I have had my fair share of scary ass ladders! The 2 dumbest things I ever did was using a step ladder as a "lean" ladder (a tall fucker too, at least a 10 foot) installing a cap in the bottom of a tank, cap spun off & lost my balance, I jumped & landed between my boss & another hand that caught me under the shoulders to break some of the fall (I went into shock & had to lie down for a bit after that!). The other was welding while straddling a step ladder probably as tall which was set up on some 6X12 timbers which a carpenter I was friendly with flipped another timber onto the base my ladder was on & launched me & the ladder, which thankfully came back down safe & sound! (I was pissed at the fucker too, he'd been bumming chew off me for weeks!) By way of perspective on just how dangerous things could be, of the guys I broke in with on my 1st job as an apprentice, the guy I carpooled with was killed on the Alcoa project in Wenatchee, another guy that elected to not join the apprenticeship was killed shortly after my 1st job, he fell down an elevator shaft (& that fucking job was the Ace of Spades, 3 Iron Workers killed). And then there was Darren Maddy, again after that 1st job (Scott Paper Mill Expansion) he took a welding call & fell off ladder & lit on his head, never the same after & shortly after the last time I saw him he died by his own hand. Not to neglect, another guy from that project that had a hand severed & re-attached, & of course my salmon fishing sensei who shattered an ankle, yeah I have dodged a fuck of lot of bullets considering I am whole & mostly uninjured.

    Top pic, NICE! I know that Toho's film were always a way bigger deal but always had a soft spot in my heart for Gamara because he's really neat & full of turtle meat! Bottom pic, amateurs! without even checking pretty sure that's 1st avenue in my own city.

    Wow, I used to be in kind of "smug mode" thinking I lived in a part of the country that was intelligent, that just shriveled up & died.
