    On milk in the US: In west Texas, we could get whole milk (homogenized), as well as 2%, 1.5%, 1%, and 0.5%, but not skim (non-fat). 0.5% has enough fat to taste okay. I have powdered milk for my sourdough...

    [citation needed] because the "forced conversion" seems to have been court-only and people reverted as soon as possible....

    AIUI, he was looking into Pompeo and his wife using his staff for doing personal errands - personal corruption....
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Election scientists have found that two-party systems are a misfeature of FPTP voting. I can see that if the GOP party in the US collapses, or becomes more of a minority party than it already is, the Democrats would split...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    L.A. County is locked down until August. They sent *everyone* ballots because they didn't want people to have to go out to "voting centers" where they'd be around others. Voting by mail is easy, here. (I signed up for vote-by-mail...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I checked the bottle that I have, and that's correct for 500mg tablets/caplets. (The only time I've come close was several years ago when I had shingles and was alternating acetominophen and ibuprofen, every two hours. I Do Not Recommend...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    There's a question about what kind of testing is being done - if it's the fast-test kind, the results are, um, less than reliable. And Himself would cheerfully lie about his results, because he believes he's perfect in every way....
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    The final volume of that report hasn't been released yet (supposed to be out in July). Their proposed "unclassified" version is about a thousand pages....

    They're generally fairly hands-off anyway. They have far less control than the conspiracy people want you to believe. What they *have* are database, money, and structure that candidates can access....
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I'd give it about a 1% chance that it happened. She has a long history of stories that aren't actually truthful, and get increasingly embellished in her favor over time, among other problems....

    I've done it - but I save in Word format. (I'm using Word 2007. I have Word 2010 available, but I don't like to upgrade it without actual necessity.) LibreOffice is better with large files than MSOffice....
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    My antidepressant dose isn't quite enough this year. I keep trying to not turn into a lump on a log, but I seem to need more human contact than I've been getting....

    They seem to really like the second. For now, anyway....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    In that part of North America, you need steel plows to do the kind of farming that Europeans recognize. Plowing tends to be done in the time of year when the wind blows, and so does harvesting - neither is...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    A lot of the almonds are growing in arid lands that weren't planned to be irrigated, along with other luxury/expert crops like pomegranates and pistachios. (No thanks to "Wonderful" and its owners, who have bought several politicians, including the governor.)...

    Another post on "how long" - best estimate several years, possibly much much longer. But not this year, unless you want to trust untested vaccines.... https://www.skepticalraptor.com/skepticalraptorblog.php/coronavirus-vaccine-race-operation-warp-speed-disaster...

    AIUI, the contamination was vitamin E oil, which is toxic as a vapor. (A lot of the things allowed in vaping substances are likely to be toxic if overheated, which apparently happens fairly easily.) And yes, they heavily marketed the...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Making life with the virus more interesting in the US: AG Bill Barr is threatening to sue governors who keep their states in lockdown/social distancing. Note that he's from the same lot that yells "states' rights" when the government tries...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Most of the cases in the Navajo nation can be traced to a revival meeting. Funerals are another source....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    There actually are laws that define it more narrowly - the popular usage is now much more general than the actual legal definition. Apparently it now requires a declared shooting war, among other things, even though it isn't that way...

    MM *did* invent the "no confirmation during the last year of a president's term" thing....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    AIUI, COVID-19 patients tend to be hypoxic, and the main bodies of the lungs are toward the back, so lower pressure ventilation and having the patient lie face down ("proning") seems to help....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    There are towns where you have to go to the PO to collect your mail, because they don't deliver. (And places where they deliver, as the boxes are 10 or 20 miles from the PO the mail goes through. But...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    The very-much-rural county where I lived in west Texas (35K people, 1000 square miles) is asking people to wear masks, and business that are open can require them to do so. They've been locked down for about three weeks, at...

    Thus his refusal to properly fund the USPS (which is at the edge of going broke, because of PAST efforts to privatize it at public expense). Trmp believes they give Amazon special deals on shipping, therefore hit Bezos by hitting...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I did a market run yesterday morning, and in my area (northwest L.A.) the mask-wearing rate appears to be well over 90% - businesses can decide whether to require masks, and some do. So it's easier to wear them the...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I heard of one district where they moved all their buses with WiFi to locations where largish numbers of students can use them....
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Too damned many people haven't read the Preamble since they were in school, and a lot haven't read the Constitution itself since then, either. (And way too many apparently think that US government is based on the Declaration of Independence,...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Joe isn't silent - he's been doing podcasts for a month (from his home office), but they don't get media coverage because he's *sane*. I don't see where the DNC did anything more than they did for Bernie, either. (They...
