  1. It’s going to be like the flu shot....those who need will have to get every year...updated versions for each common strain etc. don’t see a way around it....hoping flu and Covid get combined in one shot
  2. It’s funny that the “honor system” is in place. If it was really this serious and deadly, do you think so many states would just instantly shut off the mandates without a prior plan and say “go use honor system”? Again it just proves the point...they know it’s not going to make a difference on who masks as long as the vulnerable are vaccinated and that it would be a huge fight otherwise. This way they just hand it over to the retailers, who don’t want to divide their customers. It will all be blown over in a month with this plan and quietly goes away. until this falls booster i
  3. Haha all this and I just realized in WA state they followed CDC and removed mask guidelines for fully vaccinated. They have no plans to issue state guidance on a vaccine card or passport apparently from a quote from The governor and are leaving it up to businesses...which at this time are taking everyone’s word for it. I think this will pretty much be the beginning of the end of masks and the issue will go away....woohoo
  4. Great excuse to buy guns now before they go up more, and they will hold value honey it just makes financial sense to invest in more of them right now, can’t you see I’m doing this for us?
  5. The more the government or politicians try to tell you something, the reality is typically the opposite....There is no inflation here, it’s just a temporary increase and will go back down, nothing to see here....that’s when you know to worry.
  6. I would suggest some sort of weight training as well to maintain muscle mass. Clean eating. Walks or cardio. Apple Watch or a similar device can encourage you....scales that communicate with your phone and track your progress may encourage you.... could spend no money or lots of money, depends how self motivated you are. set realistic lead and lag goals. If you want to lose 40 pounds that’s a lag goal. What daily 1-3 things can you say you need to do each day that you can measure and obtain that if done will lead to your lag goal? Example...1. Walk 3 mil
  7. Some responses here prove my point exactly. Must be nice living in imagination projection land.
  8. From Tucker, it mirrors my interaction with family at a funeral last week-not Covid related...exactly below is what I see in every day real life...it’s like people that want to be a victim all the time, or people that want everything to be about race...they ignore reality and create their own that fits the narrative in their mind... “Pollsters at the Morning Consult just did that. Here’s what they found: Americans who have been vaccinated against COVID are more afraid of going outside than Americans who haven’t been vaccinated. Much more afraid. Only a quarter of vaccinated adults
  9. small pistol primers were in stock, sportsmans outdoor I think it was, 119.00 per thousand
  10. near Seattle just filled up for 3.99 yesterday for 89 octane. Have seen as high as 4.69 for premium but most is around the 3.75 mark. Glad I had the vision to purchase a 40 mpg AWD CRV a month or so back. Now is a great time to start looking at buying a truck...wait just a bit more until summer gas prices are in full effect....
  11. So for surveys....they take them seriously and have promoter and detractor scores. So if you give a 9 or 10 it’s a “promoter” score most often. If you give a 7 or 8 it’s a neutral and anything less is what the call a “detractor”. Many times they have year end pay or other bonuses structure tied to how well they do. long story not so short, 9s and 10s good, anything else is bad in auto or similar retail industry surveys.
  12. Most favorite breed = German Shepherd...smart, loyal, puts family before food Runner up = Belgian Malinois...smarter, more athletic, more drive.....but pushes owner a lot...like a German Shepherd on crack and too much drive for a family dog in my opinion least favorite = Newfoundland....sample size of only one but dumb as could be, constant digestive issues, wanted to lay down, eat, or sleep all the time....Food was primary driver in its life and I hated that dog for the messes it made in the house every single day. I happily had it adopted by a pair of doctors who had
  13. I keep thinking house prices can’t keep rising...but input costs are crazy. Not sure if high house prices are causing the increase, or input increases due to shortages/constraints are maintaining the high house prices. heard electrical components are very high as well. I also know one person who was supposed to be moving into new house already and it’s still just a basement as they couldn’t even get lumber.
  14. Get a mac love my Apple stuff...hate paying for it but man it just works. my work PC is windows and if I didn’t have a full IT global support team working on it 24/7 I’d be hurting.
  15. They have loads of vaccine and tons of appointment availability in most places now. Many are actively recruiting more to come get shots as they have opened up to 16 and above. military probably doesn’t hurt, but vaccines are about to go on sale with deep deep discounts
  16. We just bought a new CR-V hybrid and I had to work hard to get no add ons and 11% off msrp. Used cars are stupid high right now and new cars aren’t as bad but with parts shortages are getting there, so especially with a Honda better off buying new now.
  17. Sure looks nice! Wife won’t let me get a sports car...some nagging about a vehicle to fit all of our kids....
  18. If you are sitting on a used, no longer needed car and don’t want to hassle selling to private party tire kicker lowballers now may be your time to shine.... Was looking at trading in my Hybrid minivan and couldn’t get dealers to give me more than “x” even though book showed quite a bit more. I filled out that Carmax 2 minute quote online to sell then my car and it was 5,600 more than the highest dealer offered...drive it down there and they are writing me a check with about zero hassle as we speak. basically with the insane used car prices the value was way up, almost
  19. I find the small frame revolver trigger in general very hard for me to use accurately with 38 loads, and find 357 to be painful at some time. I love the medium and large frame revolvers, 454 and 480 hurt less than a 357 in a 2” 23 ounce package. to an earlier posters point, unless something super close I would not be very effective, accurate, or fast with one....so the idea it’s a good fun for anyone would be hard for me to get behind. Maybe if you had never shot any other trigger in your life you would be good
  20. Love to see pics when done, I’m picturing walls lined with guns like in Tremors...
  21. Well good news is new plans to help get people to take the vaccine: https://babylonbee.com/news/10-great-ideas-from-jen-psaki-on-how-to-get-dumb-hick-conservatives-to-take-the-vaccine
  22. Curiously Doc, polls show medical personnel at hospitals where not mandated with over 50% opting not to take and in cases over 60%. like you said though, numbers all over heck. And we don’t all need to agree, just agree to disagree:)
  23. I got to thinking about this as it seems about every day in the news something with the vaccine related problems pops it’s head up....wrong mix manufactured, labeled wrong, blood clots, not effective, etc etc... Keep in mind this is making the news despite the fact the media is downplaying any adverse impact of vaccines and overplaying Covid impact. again, not judging anyone for getting it based on circumstances, but as I see more and more calls for vaccine passports and no fly lists please continue to consider those that chose not to take the greater perceived risk.
  24. Common denominator....broken laws, outstanding warrants, failure to comply....99% have these in common. Eliminate any of the first 3 and an unnecessary death doesn’t happen. No one will focus on first 3, everyone will focus on the 4th thing. Put yourself in a position that if a mistake happens you don’t die....pretty simple.
