    The Pfizer blue pill has Apple microchips, the shot has Microsoft microsoftchips.  That's the main difference.

    No one wants their microsoft from a blue pill.  Duh.

    Were your ancestors from the Caucasus? Maybe they just made that designation up in the day… My nephew from Hispanica told me that.

    Is Potuguese to mean Portuguese?  If so, given their turn at world domination in concert with Spain, before the UK stepped in, and their influence in-out of Central America, perhaps you are Latino?
    Of all the options at your disposal I'd go with Irish.

    If there's a race/culture/tribe name where all the people subside mostly on gin, that's a possibility.

    I think Fish mentioned something about working with a bunch of Caucsuckas but that doesn’t seem like quite the same thing.

  • I'm guessing the bride called off the wedding because she didn't buy the "my balls are swollen from the vaccine!" line from the fiancée.  

    What a time to be alive.

    Just the cost of the monoclonal antibody drug infusion is $1,250.00 not counting cost to administer it. The same places that give the infusion give chemotherapy for cancer. If they are doing one they can’t be doing the other. The cost of the vaccine is $20 to $33 per dose for the two shot mRNA varieties and $10 for the single J&J vaccine. All that is assuming not further care is required which is unlikely for the infusion patients but quite likely for vaccination break through cases which is again a small fraction. As I told someone once “math may make your head hurt but it doesn’t lie”.

    im hearing that shipments of rebar are now out 1 year from placing the order. so much for any real infrastructure projects. sick of all the traffic from bridge repairs in the area anyways but no rebar is not a good sign for construction

    i dont buy the stuff, just what i heard from an architect down the street that works with a concrete construction house. from my end with higher alloys, 310 is getting hard to find and 309 stainless is pretty much just usa product coming into the shop which i havent seen in years, looks to be about 30 percent higher than last year

     Reason I said bs was after I looked at rebar news.  Prices are still high, but people are eating it on futures and the prices have been trending down a little.  Base steel and material to make it prices are global, availability regional.  A year out from a vendor means he's not taking any more orders for a year (at least on a commodity material, special alloys and proprietary products are a different story).  A distributor can request an import shipment and pay the tariffs if they need it bad enough in much less than a year.

    That said, we need to get those driverless tucks on the road, there's a serious shortage/bottleneck of truck transportation.  Goods piling up, can't get where they are needed.

    not sure what it is in this particular case. was recently looking for 3 feet of a high temp alloy tube, china wanted to send a container full, found it in india but i think the guy wanted to charter a cruise boat to get it here, found round stock locally, i can make a tube
