  1. For sale here. https://greensboro.craigslist.org/cto/d/greensboro-1967-pontiac-gto/7304963595.html
  2. And? That makes her just like EVERY OTHER company head, including companies like Daimler.
  3. Okay so maybe it just seems obvious to me that they are referring to GM's numbers only.
  4. See the part in bold. “The Green Drive to one million EV's by 2025 with recognized leadership in North America will happen using gm's new Ultium Platform and Silverado's proven capability. GM confirmed”
  5. I don’t know that I would struggle with it, per say, but with my girlfriend being the way she is (medically speaking), I’m not rolling the dice. Now, if I was actually having to travel out for work, it might be a different story but for now, I have the luxury of waiting it out for just a bit longer. During H1N1, I was working at a residential behavioral health treatment facility with over 100 “patients”. 90% of the entire facility (students and staff) came down with H1N1 and they were offering shots then. I did not do it because by then, the entire event had pretty much run its course and I ha
  6. I would like to add that since I have the ability to work from home, I am not rushing to get the vaccine but not because of the vaccine itself. My girlfriend has an auto-immune issue and while she gets to work from home as well, me bringing in even a weakened strain of anything is a roll of the dice. The one and ONLY time I got a flu shot, I ended up as sick as I have every been, so I have to consider that as well. I am planning on waiting until we hit the 80% vaccinated number before I go. I also have a very strong immune system so I prefer to wait while the folks that really need it, get the
  7. Fort those that are still little confused about the COVID/Cold relation. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2759815 And for the record, H1N1 was more closely related to the flu than COVID-19.
  8. You sure you didn’t make the comparison? Then you had no frame of context, hence my statement. Also taken out of context.
  9. That was not the point at all and since it wasn’t directed at you, you are making an assumption about my intent. This was more a counter to the notion that because some folks died from the vaccine and that COVID really doesn’t affect younger people (or does), that we should just not give out a vaccine. By saying “be cautious”, you’re basically implying that they do nothing. We did that last year and it didn’t work out so well, hence the hasty need for a vaccine. And please refrain from comparing the flu to COVID.
  10. An otherwise healthy 24 year old man needed a kidney AND lung transplant due to COVID. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/colby-vondenstein-lung-kidney-transplant-covid-171805750.html
  11. Again though, there were years of data available to multiple companies and that data is what bright the vaccine in the first place. The FDA emergency release mostly just bypasses the long red tape laden process that hinders more than it helps.
  12. No offense but even with full FDA approval and years on the market, there is risk with ANY medicine/vaccine. Drew also covered, very thoroughly, why a lot of the supposed fears are just unproven hype regarding mRNA vaccines. The fact is that, for now, it is better than doing nothing at all and just hoping for this mythical herd immunity that some have suggested around here.
  13. Be careful with those facts David. Some folks might have an “opinion” about it. Jokes aside, that is really good information and that needs to come out more instead of the ridiculous propaganda and bias laden nonsense being put out there by the anti-vax/anti-mask/alternative facts crowd.
  14. Of all the examples from that era you could have given, you go with the ugliest pepto bismol pink beast you could find. This would have been a FAAAAR better choice.
  15. Edited in bold for clarification and correction.
  16. I was just about to point that out lol. Borderreport has been fear mongering for years because that's what drums up their target audience, as is the case with ALL Sinclair properties and outlets.
  17. Yeah. Let’s skip things like unrestricted spring breakers in Florida (over the last few weeks) who come from all over and then go back to their hometowns to hopefully NOT spread COVID. Let’s just skip the WHOLE year of 2020 where lax policies kept the previous surges going on longer than other parts of the world because we “might” lose our previous freedoms if we are asked to wear a damn mask. Just skip all of that and blame it on those dirty immigrants like @USA-1 is currently doing. Certainly served the previous administration well, hence them being shown the door by voters five months ago.
  18. Quite an accomplishment there. Drew presents you with actual facts and you present the exact opposite of it. Bravo. BTW, the latest COVID surge is happening all over the country, not just the border states so save the xenophobic blame game by blaming it on immigrants. That is a lie upon many lies you have told on this thread. Just skip the part where I lived in Phoenix up until fifteen months ago so I know that this immigrant surge talk (as well as your assumption that they are mostly criminals because I’m sure you asked them all if they were) is pure BS. Drew also did not
  19. A thousand times this!. I'll add this as well. Even if the deniers were correct on the survival rate, they fail to see the larger math problem here. Even if it is only a 1% mortality rate, that is still 3.4 million in the U.S. (based off of the 340 million we have in this country alone), dead and given the contagious nature of COVID, that is where it would be eventually if we did absolutely nothing and 3.4 million, in this country, would be a bare minimum number if we were to subscribe to the herd immunity "theory" presented by those deniers last year.
  20. A good friend in Germany has an otherwise healthy 17 year old son who got it back in October and while he technically recovered, he has massive issues with his breathing and his energy levels, and that was just for starters. I would like to add that some famous folks got hit hard too. Maynard James Keenan (Tool lead singer) got COVID early last year and six months later, he was still not sure if he’d be able to sing live again because it wrecked his lungs. Just a few examples of the struggles folks are experiencing during these unprecedented times. COVID-19 has never been a “black
  21. I’m just going to say this. Those who think that because some folks died from the shot, it is somehow comparable to folks who have actually died from COVID-19 itself and thus not worth getting, truly do not understand how this works at all. Furthermore, herd immunity only applies here when 70-80% of the population is vaccinated. It has been covered and explained time and time again, by folks who actually believe and understand science, why herd immunization (as it was being suggested last year) is a bad option. The fact that millions more would have died would be the number one reason for it n
  22. Luckily, I don’t have that “issue” lol. The acrylic plates on these are super smooth and they will never warp, which is a “win win” for me.
  23. This is the one I plan on getting for my living room.
  24. Belts are normally $5-10 but I get wanting to “up your game” especially since you said what it was 30 years old. Mine happened to be an older Sony but the belt was easy to find given that it was a common brand, at least. There are a lot of nice Bluetooth options out there.
