Re: If a coronavirus/Covid-19 vaccine is developed and approved by late 2020/early 2021, will you get it?

Re: XLIII Random Pic Thread, The Knights Who Say "Ni!" edition.

Love the fact that Spielberg in the background (wearing the red jacket standing with Zemeckis) is such a technical film geek that he'd show up to supervise even mundane B-unit shots like this one.

Re: The Killing of George Floyd Thread

Re: CBS brings back Sunday Movie Night

I love the memories of ABC’s Sunday Night Movies. The sweet spot when I was 8-12 years old coming home after a long day of playing outside in the neighborhood (and beyond) COMPLETELY UNSUPERVISED,...

Re: I just bought a Costco membership

Gas is very fast, constant high turnover and prior to our current situation the lines for fuel at Costco (our local one anyway) were always long. I'd assume membership is a big "pure profit" money...

Re: I just bought a Costco membership

Went tonight to the La Habra, CA location. They had almost everything in stock, at least their dry-erase board didn't have anything saying out of stock. They even had toilet paper, not Krikland brand...

Re: I just paid $2.97 / gal for gas! Hoo-ray!?

Paid $2.22 at Costco in La Habra, CA yesterday. For geography purposes La Habra is located on the Orange County side of the Los Angeles/OC border. I could only dream it'll remain this low but thanks...

Re: Which of these potentially scares you the most about this crisis?

Yes, furloughed but under the impression they would be returning to a job when they reopened. And that's just the parks, this "re-tooling" is now company wide. Basically 1 (or more) in 4 will not be...

It's dangerous to trust a chart that has any data from China.
