They just have to cut you off from the internet to keep you from your funds, of course that approach works with most traditional accounts too.

Texas can and does get power piped from other states. What independent grid means I do not know, but it does not mean that power can't be brought in.

Been looking at outage reports and maps all evening, neighboring states to Texas are also having major problems, rolling blackouts, etc,

reported that their tap water smelled like mothballs. The city began investigating and advised customers of its water system not to drink, bathe or wash their hands with their tap water.

Wonder how hours of bureaucratic time was spent deciding not drink water that smells like mothballs.

I think he is trying to coin a racial slur, ignore him. Mark Cuban's mom is Jewish apparently.

For those who do not recognize his face, the pathetic fool in question is apparently 70s and 80s rock musician Bruce Springsteen.

Actually, I read once that the higher transmission rates in some parts Africa have been partially attributed to a practice where the vagina is dried out with rags before sex(which makes it somewhat more painful for the woman) it causes microcuts in the vagina that increase heterosexual transmission rates considerably.

That was actually what made me give that example, but obviously it didn't apply to gay sex, because men don't have vaginas.

Well, as the td.w title implies it may have had nothing to do with AIDs, but...

Lets say he discovers that they do so weird sex act he has never even thought of before, like cutting your dick before you have sex or something, that would greatly increase transmission rate.

Even knowing whether anal or oral is more common might have helped then, as we didn't really know yet that anal sex had a much higher transmission rate than oral, just that it was more common in gay neighborhoods in gay men.

Not watching it, but to be fair, I think the NFL is pretty low on our list these days. Then again, I haven't been paying attention to them the past 6 months.

Far more important to boycott google, facebook, twitter, amazon, walmart, fox news, forbes, and on, and on than the NFL as far as I know.

Means testing leads to perverse incentives.

Why should states/municipalities without restrictions get far less money than those with restrictions?

Why should someone who struggles with a job(perhaps even one they got as a replacement for the one they lost in 2020, or just lower commissions, working unpaid overtime because they know their employer will go under otherwise due to COVID troubles) not get a check when someone who just happily retired 2 years earlier than originally planned does.

There were some of our people. Hell, why wouldn't there be? Cops were chatting mildly while standing at their posts in some videos.

But several people inside the capital have been identified as Antifa members.

Annexed Czech (east)

Then invaded Poland (east)

THEN Britain and France declared war on Germany, then Hitler attempted to secure a peace treaty with England and France after Poland fell, but Britain and France refused(somewhat understandably)

Then Hitler invaded the west.

His plan was to invade Russia and sell off the stolen land to repay the debts he had taken on building up Germany. He had backed himself into a corner where that was the only way to repay his financiers. If the money ran out he would have faced too much internal resistance. Looting France ended up staving that off for a while anyway, but Russia was actually seen as the softer target before 1940.

Or better yet, since Hitler's plan was originally to invade east, and was only forced west by brinksmanship on the part of the west, it would have been better England and France just let Russia and Germany destroyed each other. Would have sucked for Poland and Czechoslovakia, but not any worse than it already sucked for them.
