  1. From what I can tell that poll was posted before the game this morning.
  2. Will these institutions of higher basketball learning flourish once the NCAA changes the rules and allows players to make $$$ off endorsements and such? It will become even more important to play at a highly visible university to maximize your earning potential.
  3. I don't think it was. You just seem to see everything as an all or nothing fight instead of as a discussion. The post I responded to initially quoted a doctor who said the drug has bad side effects and needed to be studied more before being touted as a cure by our President. I agree with this and chimed into share an anecdote about its side effects. However, if my doctor prescribed me the drug, I hope he would only do so because the FDA studied it and approved it's use for Covid-19 as called for by the doctor quoted in the article.
  4. Wow you are sensitive. My post did not mention anything about banning the drug or state that it is a new or experimental drug. My post was just an anecdote that related to the post it was linked to which mentioned that the drug has pretty bad side effects. I was making no judgments just sharing experience. I would take the drug in a heartbeat if I had Covid-19 and my doctor prescribed it.
  5. Of course it is encouraging and I am happy about it. It proves that many governors, like Cuomo, Pritzker, Inslee & Newsom, and mayors, like Lyda Krewson, did the right thing by enacting stay at home orders early on. Don't you agree?
  6. My wife has actually taken hydroxychloriquine for arthritis. The side effects were so bad that she quit taking it after a week. Made her feel much worse than her arthritis did.
  7. I did not see this posted earlier. Missouri governor Mike Parson announced a statewide stay at home order yesterday. https://governor.mo.gov/priorities/stay-home-order
  8. This is easy to say when you are not the one who needs help.
  9. Well, now Jared Kushner is in charge of the government's response to the crisis. I am sure that will go well...
  10. Old Guy didn't the HIV curve flatten because of changes in behavior? Had people gone about life as though HIV wasn't really a big deal and made no changes to behavior, what would the curve have looked like?

  12. I didn't say anything in my post that you quoted other than to suggest you read the article about the similarities and differences between covid-19 and flu - which you asked about. Did you read the article?
  13. Covid-19 is not a flu, it is a coronavirus. I have attached a measured article that explains the similarities and differences between influenza and Covid-19. It answers your above questions and thoroughly explains why Covid-19 is different. https://www.livescience.com/new-coronavirus-compare-with-flu.html
