  1. The stock market and ridiculous amount of stimulus is clouding the real economic pain out there. It’s there. As you said, retail is crushed. A good number of restaurants are crushed. Commercial real estate is crushed (they don’t know it yet). Logistics and the structure behind getting goods to consumers will end up being the backbone of our new economy. It didn’t use to matter if it took an extra day from strawberries to get from Mexico to Georgia. Now it does. This is a true paradigm shift in the economy. We will never go back to doing things the way we did before this year. In all honesty, I don’t know how resilient we are. I fear this winter.
  2. Biden will not win South Carolina. Also, Jo20.
  3. Does the police officer even recognize that it’s a taser and not a firearm? Is it realistic for a cop to wait to find out if the gun is a taser gun or a toy gun or a hand gun?
  4. Easily the most creepy quote by Trump was “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter perhaps I’d be dating her.” The nutty thing is he’s made that comment at least twice in tv interviews.
  5. I was on a ****ing ladder for 3 hours on Sunday. I’m pretty sure she wants me dead.
  6. Wait until the blood dries, it’s easier to clean up.
  7. https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/adult_bmi/english_bmi_calculator/bmi_calculator.html That’s the link for BMI calculator in men. Obviously muscle mass skews the calculator. At the same time, there are plenty of people within the normal range of BMI that are extremely unhealthy. No single indicator will ever capture the whole story, but there’s enough evidence out there to definitively say elevated BMI puts people at risk for serious health problems.
  8. Yes. Obesity is preventable and people use excuses for their lifestyle. Like literally everything in life, it takes actual work to obtain positive results.
  9. https://apnews.com/a2154b643d53afae2a3654f722a9b60a About 4 in 10 American adults are obese, and nearly 1 in 10 is severely so, government researchers said Thursday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention findings come from a 2017-18 health survey that measures height and weight. More than 5,000 U.S. adults took part. The survey found that the obesity rate was 42% — higher than the 40% found in a similar 2015-16 study. The severe obesity rate was more than 9% in the new survey, up from the 8% figure in the previous one. Those increases aren’t considered statistically significant: The survey numbers are small enough that there’s a mathematical chance the rates didn’t truly rise. But it’s clear that adult obesity rates are trending up, said the CDC’s Cynthia Ogden, one of the report’s authors. A half-century ago, about 1 in 100 American adults were severely obese. Now it’s 10 times more common. The obesity rate has risen about 40% in the last two decades. The findings suggest that more Americans will get diabetes, heart disease and cancer, said Dr. William Dietz, a George Washington University obesity expert. It also will be increasingly difficult for doctors to care for so many severely obese people, Dietz said. He has estimated that on average, every primary care doctor treating adults has about 100 severely obese patients. “How’s a provider going to do that? Severe obesity really requires very intensive therapy,” he said. The CDC did not report new obesity numbers for kids and teens. That may come out later this year, Ogden said. In 2015-16, 18.5% of kids and teens were obese and just under 6% were severely obese. Dietz faulted the government for not pushing for more measures to promote physical activity and better eating. Building more sidewalks and passing a national tax on sugary beverages could make a big difference, he said. Obesity — which means not merely overweight, but seriously overweight — is considered one of the nation’s leading public health problems. Full Coverage: Health It is measured by the body mass index, or BMI, a figure calculated from a person’s weight and height. A BMI of 25 or greater is considered overweight, a BMI of 30 and above is obese, and a BMI of 40 or above is severely obese. A person who is 5-foot-4, the average height for U.S. women, is considered obese at a weight of 174 pounds and severely obese above 232 pounds. A person who is 5-foot-9, about the average height for men, is deemed obese at 203 pounds and severely obese at 270. ___ The Associated Press Health and Science Department receives support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.

  10. Welp, that’s all she wrote.
  11. I always drink it neat unless it’s 100 degrees outside. It was at a tasting room in Louisville. Had the black (I think) and definitely 1783. Didn’t care for either. I’ve since had 1783 again and still didn’t care for it.
  12. I actually had the same reaction. Didn’t love Evan Williams either.
  13. Actually yes that’s what I was thinking of, not double barrel. Had it at the distillery. It was delicious. Maybe too delicious?
  14. Woodford Double Barrel Select too. I did the bourbon trail from Louisville to Lexington in October and hit Woodford toward the end.
  15. To me there’s Woodford and there’s everything else. Costco sells the 1.5L bottle here for $47.50. I also have Basil Hayden, 4 Roses, Blanton's in my cabinet and I like all of them, particularly the Blanton’s. But quality for price, Woodford Reserve is hard to beat.
  16. Have firearm deaths been increasing? Is there a correlation in the US with the number of guns and the number of firearm related deaths, both on a local and national level?
  17. PR’d a 5k this morning. Previous PR was 2007.
  18. Regina King is awesome. She has deserved a leading role for a while.
  19. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1065366 I would personally flip the switch on this dude.
  20. Dumb ****. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2016/11/10/politics/trump-quote-facebook-trnd/index.html There’s already so much dumb. Why lie?
  21. I see nothing wrong with 8:30-4:30. I’m a 9:30-5 guy myself.
  22. The first one changed cinematic history.
  23. The death penalty should be reserved for heinous cases of absolute certainty with regard to guilt. In the Roof case, he’s still not remorseful, he’s proud of what he did. A jury decided he should die. I totally get the argument about the victims families not wanting him dead, but 12 people already listened to their thoughts still managed to muster a death penalty verdict.
  24. Who is on deck? https://www.postandcourier.com/news/now-that-capital-punishment-is-back-dylann-roof-s-execution/article_764cb004-af0c-11e9-b949-a7d20c2c791a.html
