  1. IIRC, Ceka lives in a deep red state Trump will win by at least 20 points and walk away with all of the electoral college votes unless the world ends in the next three weeks. In that case, a vote for Biden and a vote for Vermin Supreme are more or less interchangeable as far as the EC goes.

    They'd restructure it before getting rid of it.. It'll never come down to the popular vote.. We'd have less states counting than we do now..

     

    The national popular vote is restructuring the electoral college. It's a compact between states to give their electors to the candidate that wins the popular vote. That way the winner of the popular vote wins the election. The election wouldn't be about winning states the, it would be about winning the most votes.

    Yea, I'm just not into  either of the choices we have now for president.. I'm just showing up for the congress votes and local stuff more than anything..

    I'm not thrilled with either one, but one gives me significantly less thrills. I'm voting more to run up the popular vote total to help give the national popular vote movement a little more momentum so we can kick the idiotic electoral college system as it is today to the curb.

    Bunch of typical responses from people here in the forums. Sarcasm and rudeness to anyone to ever says anything disparaging about sl or about leaving because sl is no longer what they liked.

    Sounded to me like bringing out the snark was the whole reason for the post.

    I think that depends upon whether one can prove knowing and purposeful negligence. And that probably would be difficult to actually prove in court.

    It would be super difficult to prove a leader's state of mind and that they were deliberately lying. Such a leader would have to do something like state they knew the dangers of the disease early on and deliberately withheld that information from the public. It would take a real moron to do something that idiotic. Doubly so to let someone record them saying it.

    Are you seeing more cases but less deaths lately?  Johns Hopkins is listing almost 1000 deaths in the US Friday..

    Yes, in the United States daily deaths peaked in late April/early May at about 2500/day. New daily  cases dropped until June, then went through the roof, and have been consistently higher than they were when deaths peaked. Now we have about 33% more new daily cases than when deaths peaked, but less than half the daily deaths.

  7. It seems more likely what's changing is more people are taking actions to prevent the spread that also reduce the severity of infections when they do catch it. Wear a mask, less of the virus gets into your nose hole and you get a milder or asymptomatic case.

    Which brings up my gripe to vent about. People who think mask mandates don't apply to them and businesses that encourage them. If you actually have a condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, you probably shouldn't be out in public right now. If you can pull an eight hour retail shift then you don't have a condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, idiot.

  8. I used a Logitech G600 for a while. It's their take on the MMO mouse like the Naga. I just programmed a few keys to do common tasks like open inventory and stuff. It works fine for walking if you remap the WASD keys, I don't know about driving. I switched back to a G502 because it's more comfortable and I like the scroll wheel better. It's chunkier than the G502. You didn't say which had your friend is using, like most mice the G600 is only going to be useful in the right hand.

    Actually there is a way to do that using the FS viewer. You can increase the size of the cache beyond the 10GB limit but it basically requires the use of another computer to do it efficiently. You can increase it up to 1TB if you really wanted to doing it that other way.

    Yeah, I tried that. I was hoping for a more modern and slightly less arcane solution.

    From numbers I have seen, democrats and minorities had/have higher incidences of contracting Covid than conservatives in the USA. 

    It couldn't possibly be that more densely populated areas that were hit the earliest happen to be more democratic and minority than less densely populated rural areas. You don't get to count all those deaths in liberal New York City because most of them happened before the protests started.
