  1. Make sure you send reminder please! Can’t wait to add to my squee collection 🙂 will it be on unearthed again?
  2. Very interesting. That analysis of the mortality rate seems to be in line with this article from the New England Journal of Medicine: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMe2002387 Note who one of the authors is of that article....
  3. WTF? Is trump running a home shopping network on the side? Lol apparently he displayed the thing upside down. But I still don't understand what the fuck he is doing advertising a product...
  4. Fired up the 2.1 system for the laptop at home, (Altec Lansing VS4121), worked fine the first day. Second day, right speaker isn't working. The headphone jack on the right speaker is working though. So I'm guessing that the problem in the chain is between the speakers in the cabinet and the spot where the audio cable routes the signal to either the headphones or the speakers. Any thoughts from people on here about how easy this would be to fix?

    It's very interesting that someone who was so close to the Buddha seemingly failed to understand one of his key teachings - that impermanence is one of the few certainties in life, and as such, death is not the end, but merely a transition.
  6. Thanks for sharing a very interesting read. I wonder if Kawabata practiced Soto or Rinzai Zen. Or if he was more sincretic in his approach.

  8. I have a lot of willpower, but not that much. Lol
  9. My dude, first of all, i'm sorry to hear about your friend. I hope that he and his wife recover. Second though, the Spanish Influenza infected about a quarter of the world's population. The very highest estimate of the final death toll is 100 million, but most estimates put it between 17-50 million. So maximum 5%, but more like1-3% which is still pretty fucked, but not 25%. Some studies show that the H1N1 pandemic of 2009 infected between 700 million to 1.4 billion, with a range of deaths between 151K and 575K, so we might have a ways to go yet. Also we really need to hope that MERS doesn't mutate, that one is deadly as fuck (approx 36% of people diagnosed with it die from it). Right now, it's a low risk for human-to-human transmission. We still don't know a lot about Covid-19, like what it's RO is, and what the percentage of case fatality rates is (I expect it to drop as more and more mild cases are reported). Finally, while the number of deaths from COVID-19 is scary (24,077), the number of cases recovered is good (122,672). So be cautious, take appropriate measures (wash hands, avoid large groups etc.) but take heed of Douglas Adams' advice:
  10. Damn, Slavoj is quite the capitalist. https://www.orbooks.com/catalog/pandemic/
  11. Germans. Just stay away from the bbq.
  12. Even if you don’t use a screen door, there’s still a clear delineation between inside and outside, right? I’ve lived in plenty places where it’s hot as hell year round, always take the shoes/flip-flops off before coming in the house... Do you hang up the rest of your clothes or just pile them on the floor? That's pretty fucking retarded. Irresponsible and dangerous.
