    TV SERVICE

    Atlantic Broadband is my only choice, but 99% of the time it works perfectly. I pay $60/month for YouTube TV and it has everything I care to watch except the History Channel (I miss Forged in Fire and a couple other shows but I can do without them). Waaaaaaay less than we used to pay DirecTV...

    TV SERVICE

    Forget them both. Get YouTube TV if you have broadband internet. We've been MUCH happier than when we had DirecTV, which used to be great but then AT&T screwed it all up. If you search the forums, there are several threads about TV in the last couple years, with a lot of good advice.

    Charles County Board votes to open schools with virtual learning

    I really can't tell what you mean by that, but I'll take a guess that you are implying parents are generally idiots.

    Charles County Board votes to open schools with virtual learning

    Anything that gives parents a greater role in their children's education, and the state less of a role, is an excellent thing. Sure, there are bad apples. But on average it will benefit our society greatly.

    BJs hand Sanitizer Recalled

    I know you were trying to be funny, but it's not just drinking it that is a problem. Methanol is also well-known by the medical community to be absorbed through the skin and cause toxic effects. It takes longer exposure than drinking methanol, but when it's hand sanitizer that's being used...

    Weekend fireworks in huntingtown..

    Oh, how easily offended... What I posted was informational ("this is what was on the sign we're discussing"), analytical ("this is how some people perceive it") and a suggestion ("this billboard seems like it was intended to offend, and that's not a good choice"). Not one of those things said...

    Weekend fireworks in huntingtown..

    The sign makes a point of emphasizing a phrase ("All lives matter") that offends black people who are trying to fight for equality, and it ends with a dig at liberals ("From all your deplorables in Calvert County"). If you're a conservative white person, that probably is pretty funny. If you're...

    So When do the Masks Come Off?

    Unfortunately the false positive rate on COVID tests is less than stellar. The FDA reported that one common test was at 3% false positive. Not enough to really impact the overall assessment of risk, but leads to scary days for plenty of people and a lot of unnecessary work for contact tracers.

    So When do the Masks Come Off?

    Right. Because an outflow valve eliminates the value of the mask at protecting other people from the wearer's possible infection. When I'm sanding drywall, I don't really care if the drywall is exposed to my germs.

    Sheetz in Great Mills Closes After Employee Positive for COVID-19

    Yes, actually. The human body is rather bad at permanently dealing with coronavirus colds. These articles were written long before COVID-19 showed up. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/11/171127105937.htm https://medicalxpress.com/news/2012-03-dont-immune-colds.html...

    House fire

    Thanks for the explanation. 2:25PM on July 4th... I wonder if a grill caught the siding on fire.

    House fire

    Watching the video, I was very surprised how far the fire progressed AFTER the crews showed up on scene. There didn't seem to be any attempt to spray water on the roof or into the broken windows until after the roof was fully involved. I don't know anything about firefighting, but it seems to me...

    So....TP?

    I'm waiting for the day when Clorox Wipes are freely available again.

    House fire

    Guess you didn't read the linked article. The last paragraph states: "Approximately 2 months prior to this, on Thursday, April 23, 2020, at approximately 9:25 p.m., more than 40 firefighters responded to 22390 Douglas Court in Great Mills, for the reported house on fire with subjects possibly...

    House fire

    Those two houses were built (or at least first sold) in 2013. I'd be surprised that a builder-level electrical issue showed up in two houses after 7 years, both about a month apart. I'd be MORE inclined to believe arson.

    So When do the Masks Come Off?

    I'm with you on this. But apparently we're in the minority, at least on this forum. Most of the rest of the people are all like "I can do what I (&^^&%$ well please, and you can go (&^&^%$ if you don't like it. Ain't nobody telling me what to do."

    RISKY BEHAVIOR FOR COVID-19

    I'm well aware of that. I was choosing to reply in a friendly and informative manner, not to the name calling and insults. They don't help any conversation about important topics.

    RISKY BEHAVIOR FOR COVID-19

    Name calling is juvenile, sir. I'm not paranoid. I am appropriately cautious, given what we medically know about COVID-19. You and I simply disagree about the medical knowledge.

    RISKY BEHAVIOR FOR COVID-19

    Well, I'm glad you agree with me for a change. I only described one aspect of my personal position, but I do nearly always mask up when around anyone other than my direct family. With a doctor and a nurse in my family, I have plenty on information on mask effectiveness.
