    I miss my girls. FaceTime is cool but it's not the same. I'm literally walking in circles here. I managed 11,000 steps yesterday without leaving the house

    I actually get this....  This is something that is kinda common among Cubans that never saw the world pre-Castro. 
    See, while a lot of U.S. politicians throw praise at Cuba and how it made life better for many Cubans (lol), or whatever the mythology is, reality is Cubans haven't seen a supermarket since 1961 or so... No local bodega, no  7-11 or convenience stores... Those don't exist for actual Cubans -- just for tourists, and those stores won't even accept Cuban currency.  Instead of being able to do something as mundane as shopping for groceries, they have to hope the goods become available.  Cubans get everything rationed, they are given a booklet they bring with them along with an actual container to a government dispensary where they stand in lines hoping to actually get the item in question..  One day it might be rice, the next it might be dairy, just make sure you get there early because once they run out you're assed out...  and if your ration of whatever never comes .... too bad, you don't get a rain check or get to swap it out for an item they do have.  "Viva la revolucion!  Viva Fidel!!"
    It's pretty common to hear stories of Cubans first entering into a supermarket then breaking down and crying...  So, it's likely just a case of him not even grasping the concept of a store full of food just waiting for you to show up and get what you want...  
    I don't care what your politics are guys... be thankful for all the simple liberties we enjoy.
    And in conclusion.... thanks again, Jerry.....

    no chance of this monopoly. if baseball is playing, then you can be damn sure the other leagues are doing the same, whether that be regular season, playoffs, draft, etc. 
    there's no scenario where baseball is the only sport playing.

    Wouldn't it be great if the season resumed in June or July to play 100 games and Canning and Ohtani were in the starting rotation?

    this comment reminds me of conversations i've had with my dad. i'll preface by saying, eat whatever the hell you want. my dad loves dollar menus. the cheaper the food, seemingly the better. my point to him is: it's literally the fuel you're putting into your body. how good could it be if they're willing to sell you a whole hamburger for $1?
    just speaking for myself, i don't care how cheaply BK or McD's, etc. want to sell their food for. i don't want it in my body. i don't make a habit of eating hamburgers, but when i do, then i'd happily eat a DD with fried mustard, pickles and heavy chilis. that's how i do it.

    i think this probably goes without saying, but never the less, in a rush to treat/cure this virus there will be mountains of data that will conflict with each other. the reason isn't fake news, but rather the simple truth that this virus is being researched in the public realm. usually this stuff is worked on in labs behind closed doors and we never know of their successes or failures of hypothesis or trials.
    that's just a reality that we need to deal with and adjust as best we can as new, and hopefully, accurate information comes in. one thing that is unchanging in all of this and can be counted on to help you and others is to wash your hands constantly and stay the hell away from other people right now. i'm still working and i can't tell you how many people just come around me and expect me to come inside their house, as if everything is normal. it's about to get real bad in this country and every single one of us will have our lives touched in a very impactful way, and i'm not talking about the financial impact.

    this is not correct. obviously a young healthy person is significantly more likely to have less complications, but we have seen very healthy people have very serious problems from this virus. she needs to remember the best advice that any doctor has given in this time which is, don't act like you're trying not to get it. act like you have it and you're trying not to spread it.

    There's a Wendy's directly across the street from the INO I go to. While there are usually 15+ cars at INO, I've never seen more than 2 at Wendy's.  90% if the time, there are 0.

    This is precisely why frequent hand washing is such a big deal. People at work get tired of hearing me talk about it, but this is why. It is the number one thing that you can do to protect yourself. The virus is not transmitted through the skin, but you can easily transfer it from the skin to a mucous membrane (i. e., around the eyes, nose and mouth). That is an easy portal of entry.

    it's going to get so much worse for far longer than what people are being told. i'm curios how it's going to affect the lesser populated areas of the country, but we haven't even seen the new york thing happen in any of the big cities yet.
    the cousin of a friend is a mother of two in her 30's with double pneumonia and they sent her home because she isn't a priority. i think most would feel as i do and be a little concerned at that treatment plan. i have a feeling that my wife and i may have had the virus early, but i won't know that for sure until there's a test for antibodies available.
