If it’s as contagious as we were told when they locked society down then there will be a massive increase in COVID-19 cases from the global protests and the general abandonment of social distancing I see everyday around town. If cases don’t spike up ... more »

I’ve a close friend whose college age son had COVID-19. His only symptom was a total loss of taste and smell for 2 weeks. A minister at a nearby church who I’ve met a few times also had the virus. He was hospitalized and on a ventilator for a while. ... more »

That’s a fact. Increasingly there is collaboration between Law Enforcement, merchants, DOT, banking, etc., to network their cameras together with AI performing surveillance, detection, officials alerts, and record management. We demo’d a program that ... more »

Our story is very similar, Sumdood. I even had a FAI Corrective surgery. It was a major waste of money, pain, and time. I flew into Nashville to have a famous surgeon perform that one. What a mistake it turned out to be. At the end before the replacement ... more »

That’s good stuff, Benstone. You can also ask to keep your bone. Mine had been in the freezer since the surgery. Eventually I’ll push it deep down in a fire-ant hill and let them clean it up. Then I plan to install it on the end of a hiking stick. Pretty

Same here in Charleston, SC. They chose to show there has not been any rioting today after a fairly small and contained one last night. This sucks.

And I hope it goes as smoothly and successfully as possible. I waited far too long for the first replacement. The pain was so bad I could barely walk. Just because I thought it was best to “stay 100% biological until later in life”. I was wrong to sacrifice ... more »

I had both of mine replaced. I don’t race but can comfortably off-road. Much better now that the pain is gone. The hips were fairly easy. The knee I had replaced has proven more challenging in trying to get back to cycling and riding off-road. * Pick ... more »

Added reply in a thread IMDB Top 100 - What have you seen? 5/25/2020 6:57 PM

Yes, Airplane. The “Blues Brothers“. Aykroyd and Belushi were comic genius. “Stripes“ with Bill Murray, “48 Hours” with Eddie Murphy. Those are in my top 50.

Others have noted the absence of comedies in the list. Why do y’all think those are missing? Blazing Saddles, The Jerk, Hangover, Young Frankenstein, Animal House....

Chase Elliott is my favorite driver. Busch wrecked him from winning at Darlington and his own crew chief coat him the win last night. It was unbelievable seeing the 9 car turning down pit lane with 2 to go.

I fell thru the skylight of a mall in 1985. I had to pay a lot of lawyer fees to stay out of jail and to plea it down to a misdemeanor. I could have sued the mall?

For sure today is kinda empty feeling. The cookouts, parties, families hanging out together, swimming pools, kids running around, arguing with friends over who is the best driver, throwing frisbees & footballs until arms are blown out, all the while ... more »

It’s my observation that suicide is a grossly under reported statistic. I can count 1 relative and 2 close friends that were marked as accidental overdoses yet known to be suicides. They left notes. It’s really an act of kindness many times for authorities ... more »

If we’re to expand this topic to include remakes.....Cape Fear. The original was good while the remake was even better.
