Is the takeaway really that Schumer doesn't know how to wear a mask, or that he walks around with it like that all the time?

I wasn't deliberately going out of my way to bash him or anything. I just have it a good ole lol. Now if it was trump who made the mistake every mainstream media outlet would be playing it(I can't find a video of it anywhere, just in a reply to a Twitter thread), and everyone would be using it as an example for how big of a moron he is. I just have it a chuckle.

It looks like the left blew it big time with this pandemic(politically, both democrats and media). They've been wrong about everything or taken the wrong side/stance-- hydroxychloroquine bias, not pointing out the blatant lies of WHO/China, ignoring the fact that the models have been drastically off for covid-19's impact on the US, etc. They're the ones that tried to use it to their advantage the most, too. The right will come out as the "winners" but not credited to any victory, instead to the left losing superbly.  :raincloud:

'Meanwhile in China no deaths were reported'

Translation: "Comcast is our parent company and they have dealings with China, so China good. PS. Orange man bad"

Please tell me this is photoshopped!

Well no wonder they kept telling us masks don't work.

The clip in that reply is the only video I see of it. Schumer walked up to the podium like that, lol.

Go to 18:00 for an anecdotal story about hydroxychloroquine

I went behind a boat yard and scooped up a truck load of pallets (with permission) for free. Building stuff out of pallets is popular these days, but to make it a lot more practical ya need to get them from a place like I did. There's like 20 different kinds of pallets opposed to the standard 4x4ft flimsy ones. As an example I got one yesterday that consisted of 6 2x8's with no gaps in between the boards. Bracing them together underneath are 2 4x4's. All solid oak and it's some quality lumber. That frame I used for the floor of the tree house is just an XL pallet about 5x9ft. All oak 2x4's and 1x6's. I haven't started yet but I'll pry the rest of the 1x6's off with a crowbar(I had already started) then I'll reattach them so there's no gaps. I got another 5x9ft pallet just like that one so I'll have plenty to finish the whole floor.

Trying to finish my indoor honey-do list fast so I got a couple of hours to work on it. Rearranging EVERYTHING in my living room, sitting room, and kids room. The "sitting room" is really a dining room that we repurposed, so we're changing it to actually be a dining room now. My kitchen table will go in there, then where the kitchen table is now we're going to make into the kids play area. That way my wife can watch them while working in the kitchen.

Today I started on another project. A tree house/fort.  I set 5x5's and leveled the frame for the floor so far.

I've been feeling pretty bad for my 4 year old not being able to do much so I built him this slide out of scrap wood and pallets. I added a balance beam the next day to it.

I've been avoiding going out at all, but I'm considering putting on a mask and going to the local pawnshop down the street to see if I see any good deals on firearms. I'll probably hold off though.

Looking at crossbows right now. I've actually never fired one, but the idea of shooting targets in the yard and hunting with it seems fun. I found this one that looks like a good deal:

Butcher box I give an 8/10. Good quality stuff, although grass-fed beef doesn't taste like a prime grain-fed, that's for sure. Ribeyes are very mild in general so they're ok grass-fed, but you DO taste a tiny gamey taste if you have a bite of fat in it. There's a crap ton of iron/extra hemoglobin in grass-fed so it has more "beefy" flavor basically. I bet I wouldn't like filet mignon that already have a high hemoglobin content from the start. Grass-fed tenderloin probably tastes like liver.... Which isn't horrible but not what I'm looking for. The chicken is great.

Another issue you can have with grass-fed beef that's vacuum sealed is if it sits in the package for awhile and wet ages. Lactic acid interacting with the hemoglobin ramps up big time and it'll amplify those liver-tasting notes. You'll have the same issue with elk and deer sometimes so you wanna freeze it RIGHT after it's been sealed.

My wife's best friend takes hydroxychloroquine for Lupus. The recommended dose is typically < or = to 6.5mg per kg body weight, and trials are typically giving patients 200mg twice daily or every 8 hours. People that take this drug go in for routine eye exams to check their retinas out, but issues are uncommon. I think the valid concern is more so it's interaction with taking zpak alongside it and not so much hydroxychloroquine.

It seems to be producing results in both Wuhan and NY for both recovery time and making it so patient's conditions don't worsen. If you were to become infected with covid-19 I'd at least consider taking the appropriate dosage. It's tough to chant Orange man bad while intubated.

Local company got a grant around 8 minutes from my house. A tiny bit of good news. I don't mind having the option at least of signing whatever waiver to to be a test subject for hydroxychloroquine trials.
