    Common Sense* Anti Protest

    Uhm, no. The truckers in DC weren't looking for handouts or more regulations, they were protesting a sudden lack of broker transparency and brokers literally price gouging during an emergency.

    Yes. Dead people are entitled, entitled, I tell you, to have other people make special provisions for them, otherwise they are being discriminated against. Plus, real time closed caption transcription, despite benefiting more people, doesn't feel inclusive enough. Reminds me of that famous...

    Generally speaking, I try to avoid drinking vegetables (V-8 is a guilty pleasure, tho). Mainly because the missing fiber is what helps the body incorporate the nutrients. However, when I'm at home, I'll whole foods it up with my Vitamix, which keeps the fiber in the drink.

    For the record, I think Trump should wear a mask. And it should be orange

    Trump doesn't wear his super dooper coronamask with the Presidential Seal in front of cameras while at the Ford plant in Michigan. The Michigan AG is spittin' bubbles mad (which is probably why Trump didn't wear it). He was the only one in the building not wearing a mask, which is ultra low...

    If you Google "tonic water and zinc", the overwhelming concensus is no. Common sense (whatever that means) tells me it wouldn't. A clinical dose of quinine is something like 800mg every 8 hours, and a liter of tonic water has about 80mg in it. On the other hand, I know two people who swear by...

    When will freight come back?

    On the Top 10 list of cities with the most COVID-19 cases per capita, #10 is Sioux Falls. Of course, mosre than 80% of North Dakota's COVID-19 cases come from the outbreak at the Smithfield pork processing plant in Sioux Falls, so there ya go. From what I've seen here, masks are worn by maybe...

    Snopes cleverly reframed Zelenko's real-time anecdotal experience as a flawed and incomplete study with no supporting data. "His claims are unproven" simply means it wasn't part of a controlled clinical trial. It's 100% accurate to say that his results and conclusions are not scientifically...

    When will freight come back?

    Uncharted territory. Everybody is trying their best. We'll, maybe not Democrat governors, but everyone else. The Love's in Sioux Falls, that used to be a Pilot, they've got the self serve drinks and roller grill open like normal.

    The woman on the bed is TDS Patient Zero, Jessica Starr (her real name, not her porn name). You gotta give Trump the win on this one. The media won't go there, but if Trump can convince the cream of the crop medical staff at the White House to give him hydroxychloroquine, he totally wins the...

    After I'm done, I dump any residual salt water from the cup, and fill it with 6 or so ounces of fresh water and run that through the Sinugator (for when your alligator has sinus problems). I just stick it out the window and let it run. That should keep any salt crystals from forming in there...

    For the record, I'm generally doing just 2 rinses a day, one within a few hours of waking up, and a second rinse on hour or two before going to bed. That will probably change on days when I run loads, depending on the loads. They say don't to a rinse within an hour of going to bed. After you do...

    I got the same surprise. It says that on the outside of the box, but in the manual it's not as clear. In the manual, the page for the bottle, right there at the top it plainly says replace the bottle every 3 months. Same thing on the neti pot. But it doesn't say that on the Sinugator page. And...

    Everybody points to that deeply flawed and resoundingly pummeled VA study that showed pretty much everyone put on hydroxychloroquine died. The biggest problem with that study is everyone who was put on hydroxychloroquine had already been on a ventilator for at least 5 days. Every other study...

    When will freight come back?

    Freight should be picking up quite a bit in 4-6 weeks with the auto plants ramping up. But back to normal? 6 months at the soonest, probably a year.

    You know how Sweden has been touted as the shining example on the hill as doing it right, because they didn't shut down, and everybody on their own just kind of instinctively did the right thing with social distancing and stuff? Tucker Carlson even dedicated an entire show about how brilliant...
