I loved Bashir’s concern that he may be his own grandfather when he meets the hot yeoman.

“Trials and Tribble-ations” is a barrel of fun in every way. It is both a take-off and a heartfelt tribute. Read more

And the writing was so much better than most of the subsequent trek outings. So much classic scifi nuance. Just one little aside from Where No Man Has Gone Before:

It also might be incorrect, as these things get a bit complicated, but the point is SOMEBODY ELSE takes office, and Trump goes to jail.

There wouldn’t be a Speaker of the House, the House would be entirely vacant because if there’s no presidential election, there’s no Congressional election either.

What tends to be missing from that level of hand wringing is any discussion of all the people and entities that *don’t* support Trump. You know all those States, who have their own courts LEOs and militaries, that aren’t already in lock step with these guys. The federal military that clearly doesn’t like the guy and Read more

But if no election has taken place, assumedly that means there has been no congressional election either, so her (Nancy’s) term ends on 2 January, 2021. So it will devolve to Chuck Grassley, president pro tem of the Senate, who will still be in office.

If all Federal elections were cancelled, then Pelosi’s term would also end when Trumps did (she was last elected in 2019), so that would leave Mike Pompeo (gross), Secretary of State, as the acting President until elections were held.

I and others have called for creation of a tri-partisan commission (Democrats, Republicans, and people affiliated with neither major party) to resolve presidential election disputes. Such a body must be given broad powers, including authority to postpone the election or call for a re-vote in the event of a failed Read more

You’re not out of touch. Well, maybe you’re out of touch, but only in the sense that you were unaware of how insane the offended-by-everything crowd has gotten. You probably only associate with rational people. Read more

Wow am I out of touch, I thought that meme was just a joke about being stuck inside with your spouse for too long. Never occurred to me at all, that there could be racial overtones.

The antibodies are disease-specific. We’re usually not testing for random antibody levels, we’re looking for whether your blood serum is reacting to a particular disease (or allergen).

My mom had something like that in December too. They told her a bad cold with a lingering cough was going around.

Influenza was pretty bad this year. Not saying it is impossible you had covid 19, but I would lean toward flu.

Please remember that this hasn’t been a light Influenza season (for either A or B strains) and that SARS-CoV-2 and FluA & B have similar clinical presentations.  If you’re in a younger cohort (sub-40yo) and you had an Influenza-Like-Illness before March (USA), you probably had Influenza.

My memory is also a little fuzzy. From what I do remember, it started with a stuffy nose, sore throat, serious fatigue and a fever around 101. It seemed to be mostly done after few days, and I normally wouldn’t have thought much of it. But then the fever returned for a couple of days and I developed a cough and some Read more

You’ve touched on the part that makes me begin to suspect my own reasoning/recollection — was it just a bad cold that I had? My nose was runny sometimes, after all. My fever wasn’t ever over 101, either. I would want to get the test, even if it shows that I didn’t have the COVID, if only to 1) be more vigilant about Read more

I’ve been wondering the same thing about a bad cold that I had in December.
