Re: COVID survivors

You should do what you feel comfortable doing. But if you're going to hole up you probably should sterilize everything before it enters your home, change and wash clothes after going out, the list is endless. You know what you need to do. I think I caught it from a nurses coat who was the school nur...

Re: COVID survivors

I agree with you adhoc. And Sweden didn't destroy it's economy and yet has a similar result healthwise. One can't help but think there is another agenda at play in the countries that did.

But question it and the folks who bought into it get very angry.

Re: COVID survivors

And if one is female and has an O blood type statistically you're less likely to contract it. The worst possible combo? Be male and have anything other than O blood type. It's not a guarantee, just a statistical trend.

Re: COVID survivors

Sam, do you have a blood 02 meter? You might find what you see to be interesting. Lightheadedness is what clued me in that my O2 was headed south. It's been 11 months for me and just last month I saw my old O2 levels back in my body. Give it time and if you can't do something put it on the shelf. Ta...

Re: COVID survivors

Sam, I lost my appetite too. I was in ketosis so it was no big deal for me. My wife was upset that I wouldn't eat for 4 days. I just looked at it as a great weight loss program (seriously). Got huge lower GI distress too, but that also could have been from my med's that I take. I have no idea if I l...

Re: COVID survivors

It has a survival rate of 99.87 or some such. Good that you were one of the survivors. I had it in early - mid February '20. I didn't know what it was and neither did my Dr. . Similar symptoms to yours. I was going to make the call on O2 levels if I saw 90% which is low for me. No problems breathing...

Re: Gem Single Edge razors

Yup.

It's been years since I had a DE shave and I don't miss the flexible blade at all. I keep a few DE razors in the cabinet but it's been a long time since one has been used.

Re: Matching soaps & creams with most effective brush fibers

When I was more active on the various forums I would run across this theory fairly often. I was puzzled about it then and still am. I have a rotation of 30 some odd brushes; badger, boar, synthetic, hybrid boar/badger, and basically I felt then, and still do, that it just comes down to knowing the ...

May your 2021 be better than 2019 was. (I skipped 2020 since doing better than it sets an awfully low bar.)

Re: What do you want for Christmas?

LabRadar unit to take the place of my older chronograph. It uses doppler radar to measure the speed of really fast moving objects if I understand the way it works.

Re: Face masks

The virus can fall out of the air and into the eyes. From the eyes there is a passage to the nose and throat. So if a face mask is used it needs to have a barrier of some sort that prevents cooties from falling from above. Cloth masks aren't so much for the wearer but for other folks. Fauchi (sp?) n...

Re: Astronomy Anyone??

Lots of eye Drs might not follow that either, IDK. I mentioned it on another forum MANY years ago and an eye Dr to be came back and stated that I knew more about the eye than he did, at least as far as that. He had to research it. But advanced amateur astronomers know how to do it with practice. No ...

Re: Astronomy Anyone??

A dobsonian light bucket would make for very good viewing and not cost an arm and a leg. You can make your own too. I haven't looked in to it, but you might even be able to purchase finished mirrors. That way you'd build the housing and the formica "bearings". They have no drives so all of the cost ...
