    Should I have my 2013 Mustang converted into a Zimmer...yes or no?

    Caps/Lightning Game 7 at 8.
  3. Again, y’all. It’s a schtick. He does not believe what he’s telling you. He wants you to believe it. That’s the con.
  4. Same reason that twa has 25 posts about it the past week. 1). It plants doubt about the lethality of the virus. This ties all the way back to the “just the flu” garbage that Fox News/Limbaugh etc were spinning all thru Jan/Feb. If Maga doofuses buy in and continue business as usual, that’s good for the economy. And if they die, that’s fine too. After all, this GOP is a death cult and that just plays into #2 because... 2). It’s a long-game setup to play the “FDA/liberal over-regulation has blood on its hands” card. Which they absolutely will play in an effort to mitigate the political damage of 250K corpses. Pretty simple, really. And very on-brand.

    Seriously...Majesty is a crucial Bond film. Swiss Alps lair packed to the gills with smoking hot 60s chicks and Telly Savalas?!? SIGN ME UP!
  6. I can tell you that the hospitals in suburban Richmond anticipate a peak in the April 21-28 range.

    I ate too much Chicken Parmesan. Afternoon yardwork/guitar playing is officially postponed.

    The last movie you saw......GO! (After you read the OP!!!!)

    Speaking of Albert Finney, stayed up late last night and watched Wolfen. Really great Reagan era eco-horror.

    Bardem’s performance is garbage. If you’re gonna be Camp, be Camp. If you’re gonna be gritty, be gritty. Bardem in Skyfall was the equivalent of dropping Danny DeVito’s Penguin into The French Connection. Howlingly, embarrassingly bad.

    Quantum was drab and boring. Skyfall was derivative trash but gets special “Albert Finney points”. Spectre makes Skyfall look like North By Northwest. Speaking of which, North By Northwest is probably the 3rd or 4th best Bond movie.
  12. Evil is as evil does. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scorpion_and_the_Frog Very underrated musician. Hope he pulls through. "Dear friends, I'm sorry to report that I am among the growing number of Americans who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus," Cross announced in a message posted to his Facebook page. "I'm not in the habit of discussing medical issues on social media, but I do so in hope this will help other people to understand how serious and how contagious this illness is. Although I am fortunate enough to be cared for at home, this is possibly the worst illness I've ever had. For those of you who still do not believe the COVID-19 virus is real, or think it is a 'hoax' or part of some conspiracy, my advice to you is to understand right now that this is a deadly illness spreading like wildfire throughout the world."—Christopher Cross

    You’re better off trying Tom Jones karaoke than trying 18YO Scotch, tho.

    True story, I once tried my hand at Thunderball for karaoke. Damn near wrecked myself. Do not engage!

    I love James Bond movies. Especially the ones that haven’t aged well.
  16. Deep State is super sly like that.

    The Forthcoming Recession

    Fair enough, but it was only the presence of C4C that caused them to be traded in the first place. Can’t lose what you never had. The government brought the money and bought em up. And yeah, I remember pouring silica into the head of a very clean late 80s XJ6 Vanden Plas. A very odd feeling.
  18. I’m pleasantly amused that we have our very own Chloroquine truther here in the Tailgate.
  19. We will need hero banks to step in. No landlord has pockets that deep.
  20. When Liz talks, I listen. You should too.

    The Forthcoming Recession

    That is true. Wholesalers took the hits. Of course, wholesalers don’t pay sales tax or property tax or payroll tax. They employ no one and provide very little in the community. So, what exactly should they expect from the state?
  23. The complete opposite is true, of course. Very powerful, highly rated portions of our national media were selling the “it’s just a Flu” bull**** well past it’s expiration date. I don’t need to name them because we all know who they are. Fact is, we should’ve gone into lockdown sooner and should’ve started emergency preparations sooner. The “media” played a huge role as to why we did not. Furthermore, we still don’t have a national lockdown policy in place. The KushnerCowgirl scenario she’s selling is completely fraudulent on every conceivable level. As usual.
  24. As a 50 year old, I have been deeply concerned about getting the virus since December. I am even more deeply concerned abou spreading it to my 71 year old mother. My concerns were based on the fact that I’m not a complete sociopath. Media had nothing to do with it.
