  1. Yeah, of course, I hope people follow the public health recommendations but the point is that , in relative terms, this is not a significant event.
  2. Well, so what? Cancer kills more than WW2, heart disease kills more too. That's a stupid statement. Smoking, not wearing seatbelts, impaired driving, eating at MacDonald's 5 times a week probably all kill more than WW2.
  3. Was just going to post the same thing but see that you have beat me to it. I don't live in Ontario and DF is not "my" guy but kinda looks like he's doing a pretty good job dealing with this issue. Some reporter today tried to get him to criticize Truedope and he wouldn't take the bait. (Good thing they didn't ask me!)
  4. Wow, didn't realize there were so many fans among our aviation community. It's a little unsettling, TBH - it's like when you realize that your boss actually understands your Monty Python references or finding out he texts with emojis.
  5. Nope. Traditional Chinese Medicine. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traditional_Chinese_medicine
  6. You haven't been paying attention - every bio-med company in the world is working feverishly (yes, I got the pun) to develop, or expand their testing ability. This, for the public good and also because there is HUGE money to be made by the first company that can provide such a test. Personally, because of all the spare time I seem to have in my schedule these days, I have been watching this area because it's one of my investment interests. A person who bets right, by buying shares in the winning company, would be rewarded greatly.
  7. Yes, that's it. Good luck changing the beliefs of a billion people about TCM however.
  8. Yikes! That video should carry a warning.
  9. Yes, Zaphod was a character in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". Congrats on knowing/finding the reference to Rich, J.O. and Marshall but you guys still haven't got the significance to the reference. It's just something that occurred to me and, obviously, not some earth-shattering revelation but calling Trump "Zaphod" works on many levels. - Zaphod was the President of the Galaxy and Trump is the President of the USA - that's one. - Zaphod was described in the book as being "hedonistic and irresponsible, narcissistic almost to the point of solipsism, and often extremely insensitive to the feelings of those around him." I would say that's a fair description of Trump as well - that's two. - Zaphod is boorish, immature, impulsive and prone to temper tantrums - that's three. - Zaphod was briefly the President of the Galaxy (a role that involves no power whatsoever, and merely requires the incumbent to attract attention so no one wonders who's really in charge.) This refers to the idea that the President of the USA (which changes every 4 or 8 years) is relatively insignificant to the "real" control which is held by the military-industrial complex - that's four. Anyway, I've never heard anyone else call Trump "Zaphod" so maybe it's just me that sees the similarities but I thought it was funny.
  10. Nope, not close enough. There's lots more.
  11. Yes, you are correct in the source but what I was asking is do you get the meaning of the reference?
  12. President Trump is the perfect Zaphod Beeblebrox. Anybody get that reference (without looking it up)?
