  1. I'm still good with my pick.
  2. It won't save him from Decomp's corruption
  3. The CDC has updated its guidance about when a person should get the coronavirus vaccine’s second dose. The recommended time between doses is 21 days for Pfizer and 28 days for Moderna’s vaccine. The CDC says while the second dose should be administered as close to the recommended time as possible, the dose can now be scheduled up to six weeks later if necessary.
  4. Please DM your pics to Lenny for approval.
  5. That's too advanced, we are busy double subsidizing fields of giant windmills and claiming they are "competitively priced" compared to our current options.
  6. Nuclear is the best option imo. I think the Japan power plant scared some people but if you build inland, they would be really safe and cheap. They are planning a natural gas plant on the west side of my state. It will be a couple of years before they start construction I think.
  7. We have a coal mine and power plant in central ND. All of the power is sent to Minneapolis and Wisconsin. The plant was meeting the Paris Climate Accord standards before it was ever signed but Minnesota is pushing towards renewable energy. The company that owns it wants to shut it down and use the existing line for wind power. The landowners got together and said they didn't agree to put wind towers on their land. They obviously want to sell their coal and the plant is basically keeping a small town alive as it employs 260 people. Now the company is trying to sell it instead.
  8. Gas and Diesel engines are also greatly advancing. The new Chevy Duramax Half Ton Pickup gets a legit 30 mpg on the highway. My friend has one and took it on a vacation which was about 440 miles roundtrip. 4 people in the vehicle plus luggage. He still had a quarter tank left when he got home and it's only a 22 gallon tank with the reserve. Total cost of fuel on the trip, about $40.
  9. Exactly. The infrastructure isn't there. People seem to think that we have infinite, cheap electricity. The more we transition to renewable energy, the less available power we have and the more expensive it gets. They are just not as efficient as our current power plants. There are still issues with cold weather and batteries. It's freezing in a big portion of the US for 4 months out of the year and Lithium batteries still don't like the cold. They tested a Tesla in 2019, it used double the anticipated power while driving in 10 degree weather. The base model Tesla 3 costs $40,000 and in the winter the range will be 130-150 miles. I will gladly spend the extra $1500 a year on gas when I get double the range.
  10. It's OK if he lies at every turn as long as he speaks nicely to people. $4 gas is going to be fun to have again.
  11. Collectively, about 727,000 electric-drive vehicles were sold in 2019 — and just under half of those were plug-in electric cars capable of operating on electricity alone. For comparison, a total of 17 million new light-duty vehicles were sold in 2019 according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.
  12. I know you are excited about your Tesla stock but there is zero chance we are EV only in 9 years.. There are 270 million cars in the US. The actual percentage of fully electric cars on the road in the US is extremely small compared to gas engines. California's target to sell only EV vehicles is 2035 and that's been said to be ambitious. AKA, it will never happen.
  13. In other new Seattle and Portland are still ****holes. In Seattle, about 150 people marched with large banners that said “Abolish ICE, no cops, prisons, borders, presidents.” Some spray-painted buildings with an anarchist symbol and broke windows, including at a federal courthouse. In Portland, about 200 people clad in black marched to the local Democratic headquarters, where some of them smashed windows and tipped over garbage containers, lighting the contents of one on fire.

  14. Agreed, I think it would have previously but now neither side has a lot to gain so who knows.
  15. From what I understand a few Dems are against it as well so unless they fold they will need more than 10. IMO it's a waste of money. There are ways to target the people that need help without giving everyone money.
  16. You're an idiot. Due to the large amount of mail in voting, a lot of votes were cast before the person died.
  17. Probably His ex wife was the one with all of the money. She started some online business and crushed it, he was just leeching off of her.
  18. In 2020, Americans continued to move further west and south, according to the study, with Idaho, South Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota and Arizona rounding out the top five inbound states. "United Van Lines' data makes it clear that migration to western and southern states, a prevalent pattern for the past several years, persisted in 2020," Michael A. Stoll, economist and professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, said in a release. "However, we're seeing that the COVID-19 pandemic has without a doubt accelerated broader moving trends, including retirement driving top inbound regions as the Baby Boomer generation continues to reach that next phase of life." Where are all these newcomers coming from? Among the states experiencing large exoduses, New Jersey and New York topped the list along with other East Coast states: Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maryland. But California, one of the top states Americans moved to in 2019, made the top 10 outbound states in 2020. https://thehill.com/changing-america/resilience/smart-cities/532787-many-americans-left-new-york-and-new-jersey-during?amp
  19. The minnesota cop thing was BS made up by his ex wife. It was proven that he wasn't there and I think was on duty on the other side of the city. 2 people from an extreme right group are facing charges though.
  20. I can ban him but to be fair I will also have to ban idyb and his wall of spam along with him.
