    Catalytic converter theft

    VERY real problem, especially on trucks/SUVs. 60 seconds with a sawzall and they’re off. I know some people who have spraypainted their cats with high-temp paint to discourage theft. Scrap buyers who purchase converters are fueling this, IMO.

    Remdesivir for covid? Ya'll heard of it?

    They aren't a 100% silver bullet, but vaccines are statistically highly effective at preventing severe disease...unless, of course, you have the "classic COVID" conditions of advanced age, are immunocompromised, or have compounded comorbidities in which case they are still protective but less...

    Kung Flu is kicking my ass

    Are you experiencing fever/fatigue typical of influenza, or significant respiratory issues? As said above, don't F around with breathing issues - saturated O2 below 90% is a trip to the hospital RFN. Seeking help too late is the worst possible thing you could do. If you are within 7 or so...

    Covid death survey

    My local hospital’s ICU is 100% full…75% are COVID patients. Average age in the ICU is less than 55. They lost a 34 year old earlier this week, with no significant/common comorbidities, who was given ivermectin at family request.
