Re: Is Anyone Just Tired?

I'm pretty thoroughly exhausted. Still trying to put my routines back together after getting my ass out of the UK on March 16th, which was, by my rough approximation, 3 years ago. Took a 3-day weekend from the PhD work, which means that I worked on 3 fewer days than normal. (Normal = 5 full days, pl...

Tony earned a full scholarship to Regis High School, a Jesuit school in Manhattan.
The only way you can attend Regis is by winning - and maintaining - a full scholarship. The criteria are both academic merit and financial need.

Re: New Diseases - Coronavirus

I'm sure that this is a dumb question and you guys will tell my why. Why not use the self-inflating bags that they carry on ambulances to use on people that paramedics they intubate when they run out of respirators? It would take a lot of manpower, but they could make a lot of them very fast and yo...

Nor here. Sorry, not sorry. We hammered the idea hard; I fail to see where we personally insulted the guy who posted it. The idea of stocking up on medication you may or may not need, when there are people to whom it is now medically necessary and who would suffer from a shortage of it, needs to be...

No, he is dead on, and you should be ashamed of yourself. The point is, it is hideously irresponsible and damnably selfish to ask for those drugs so you'll " have them if and when you get sick ."

Do you know how many American flu deaths have happened so far this season? 14,000 (by the lowest report, it usually averages 30,000 but the season isn't over, etc) Globally(so far), the death toll from Covid-19 is less than that (about 10,000) With 250,000 confirmed cases, or so.
