You mean like Trump being reelected? Or Biden being elected?

Either is terrible, but I don't see how we can avoid both.

I had a doozy of a dream this morning. I dreamed that I was back in grad school and took an outside job working for the local office of a big company. The local office was very peculiar. In particular, the manager was a woman in her 80s. She made me and another male grad student her boyfriends witho...

i will have to remember "walk-in" fridge, should i ever win big in the lotto, or some african prince bequests me his fortune. Once nice thing about a walk-in fridge is that you could potentially have two entirely separate cooling units for it so that if one fails, you can start and and us...

I made a previous mistake in this post.I misinterpreted an article. I previously said Blake's son was paralyzed,the article was from the point of view of Blake's father and I missed that. The fact is that Jacob Blake is paralyzed from the waist down. It has also come out that Blake has a pending co...

Let's see... We have climate change being ignored as we are being flooded with storms and having our forests burn down around us in record breaking heat waves, a deadly pandemic, economic ruin, racial tensions coming to a boiling point, and perhaps we are on the verge of a third world war or second...

My primary workstation can do a shutdown and reboot and be ready to log in in about a minute. As far as desktops go, it's not all that advanced. I bought it used for under $300.

Even John Bolden says it didn't happen and he is definitely not in Trumps fan club. That's somewhat inaccurate. John Bolton didn't say that it didn't happen. He said that he was there for a discussion and didn't hear Trump say it at that discussion, but he did not rule out the possibility that it w...

"Candidate Biden helped start actual war, leading to deaths of thousands of brown people and loss of trillions of dollars" VS "Candidate Trump may or may not have said something in private" Whether it was said in private or not is immaterial. The very fact that a President would...

That's interesting. Most people I know with facebook accounts seem to use their own names. My sister is an exception to that -- she uses a nickname. After I created my facebook identity and got signed up, I ran across a more interesting spelling of the first name for the account but I guess it is ki...

I didn't realize that this is an old thread. I'm really curious now how I even found it. I meant no disrespect of Joe90. I apologize if it was interpreted that way. With facebook, I'm always surprised by how many people use it with their real identities. I would never use it with my real name just f...

I buy most of my computers from Discount Electronics in Austin, Texas. discountelectronics.com I think.

I've never had a problem with anything I bought from them and if I did, they warranty their computers for a year.
