Re: Pandemic: Life on the ground

Yes, please do! One of our friends got the 3rd Moderna and had side effects for 2 days. I'm very sure he's much older than you though so that may have a lot to do with it. I died for 4 days on the third shot of Pfizer but really, it was only fatigue. It was exactly like any time I return to altitud...

Re: Are school shootings the price we have to pay for the second amendment?

1. Improve access to mental health care. 2. Something-something about liability insurance for gun owners, training requirements for licensing, tighten up state and local laws, and charge irresponsible adults as appropriate. 3. Metal detectors in ALL schools. (I'd go as far to say all public buildin...

Re: Pandemic: Life on the ground

It's interesting that more people have died of COVID this year under Biden than died under Trump. Were the low number of deaths during the Trump administration due to the fantastic leadership of Andrew Cuomo? But just out of curiosity now that we're a ways into this, what percentage of working age ...

Re: The Benefits of Living a Mormon Lifestyle

Mormonism-related topics in the “Mormon Discussions” fora, non-Mormon discussions in the “Non-Mormon Discussions” fora. Rule of thumb for my moderators, in whom I am well pleased: If it feels like 51% or more of the opening post is one or the other, you may move the thread accordingly. Thanks for t...

Re: Uh, Alec Baldwin just shot and killed someone

Yeah im watching the game too. Apparently Baldwin was directed to just cock the hammer back, in that scene. The camera wasnt rolling as he was getting instructions from someone on how to cock it back. He said he pulled the hammer back and when he let go of it, the gun fired. His finger wasnt on the...

Re: The Benefits of Living a Mormon Lifestyle

LOL! Good luck with that one. The clone of Shades part requires us to consider all kinds of things that Shades has said over time in numerous posts to the mod board. And even those have evolved over time. Language is slippery, and even things that look crystal clear at first glance may actually be ...

Re: Thread for discussing climate change

Climate change is a political issue only because certain industries with a metric crapload of investment in fossil fuels politicized the science as a tactic. As I detailed in a previous post. From this interview , the history of climate change science: The industry's been following this issue for a...

Re: The Benefits of Living a Mormon Lifestyle

Yes, I said you read the rules correctly. But Shades also created the forum designations. As clones of Shades, I don’t think we would simply ignore our own forum descriptions. But what I think is moot, as it’s been kicked upstairs to Shades’ attention. Got it! Thank you! If I'm in error and this th...

Re: The Benefits of Living a Mormon Lifestyle

I think that’s a correct reading of the rules, Mike. But we also have to take into account the forum descriptions. The board is divided into two many sections labeled “Mormon Discussions” and “Non Mormon Discussions.” Each sub forum has a description that it’s for anything non-LDS related. Being my...
