Re: Whitmer Lifts Seasonal Load Limits

I'm just thinking for things that really need to get shipped... bread, toilet paper, etc, that there's no way you could jam enough into a semi and get near the load limits. Water, maybe and perhaps some cleaning supplies that are mostly water-based, but even then it would have to be packed to the gi...

Re: Current Surges Due To Reduced Usage?

123 vs 120? I can't imagine that would be an issue. I'd be surprised if there is really any instability in frequency or voltage from a general drop in utilization. Right as they pull the plug on a H*** local current consumptor, maybe, but unless you're right on the same distribution line as them you...

Re: The media wants you to panic

I don't see why, unless they really don't have a clue, and then they shouldn't be running a company that big. They don't have to go into details that specifically discuss their own properties, just a bit of the picture of what they are dealing with and some of the steps they are taking. Wouldn't do...

Re: Media doing social separation

I've noticed some of the stations (national, like CBS this morning) are closer than 6'. Maybe down to 4' They could easily hold hands if outstretched. I'm surprised I haven't seen a lot of switching errors, as they have to constantly switch cameras when folks are in different rooms or reporting from...

Re: Why Did Channel 4 Stop Reporting Coronavirus Exposure Locations????

I think it's useless information anymore and probably more damaging to overall containment. Probably too many folks thinking "well, I didn't go there so I haven't been exposed", instead of making the assumption that everywhere you go or everyone you encounter may have been exposed.

Re: Trump attacks our Governor?

I saw clips of her on this weekend's talk shows crying about the feds not doing enough for her. Seems like her and the other weaker democratic governors are are wanting to rely on the feds for all the big decisions instead of taking the leadership themselves. She hasn't done a bad job so far, but sh...

Re: Whitmer Lifts Seasonal Load Limits

I don't really have a problem with this, but was it really necessary?

Are there issues with supply trucks going unfilled solely because of the weight restrictions?

Is it possible to put over 4,000 cases of water in one semi-truck trailer?

Thought this was an interesting site. It gives you levers to use to model different scenarios of containment or growth:

Re: John Bolton Speaks

The Deep State doesn’t actually exist... it’s kind of like Santa Claus. So what you actually have are people who know the way things have worked for a very long time, know what the radical Trumpians plans will do to the country and they resist slightly because the directives don’t make sense and do...

Re: The media wants you to panic

It would be really nice to see some of these reporters actually get someone from Kroger, Walmart, Meier, or any of the other grocery stores actually talking about their supply chain and deliveries and what they are doing to restock shelves, instead of the same old stories of "the shelves are empty!!...

Re: John Bolton Speaks

Who can blame Trump for not believing the Deep State? They have been trying now for over four years to get rid of him. And the Sheep State believes the Deep State if it helps get rid of Trump. Ever hear of The Democrat Who Cried Wolf? The Deep State would gladly eliminate the "Deplorables", one way...

That idiot Rod Meloni was on the news this morning telling folks to cash out their retirement accounts!!! What a MORON!!

If he said that a month ago it would make sense.

I've been following this for a few weeks now. It does look promising and even a small dose to delay the virus from overtaking your lungs before your body mounts a defense is a H U G E step. It still allows your body to combat this and build an immunity (which is good) but just helps you get through ...
