  1. The SS payroll tax reduction is also just a deferral. Any amount they don’t deduct from pay checks will still be due at the end of the year. That may also surprise a few people.
  2. Social media platform Facebook removed a post from President Donald Trump's page on Wednesday claiming it violated the company's coronavirus misinformation policy. It is reportedly the first time that Facebook has taken down one of the president's posts. Trump's post included a portion of video from a Wednesday interview conducted with Fox News. President Trump alleged that children should be able to return to public schools for in-person education because they are "almost immune" to COVID-19. https://www.newsweek.com/facebook-removes-post-trump-first-time-over-covid-19-misinformation-1523155
  3. I'm not waiting to find out. We had a choice between in person or online classes. Kids will be doing online classes for the first semester. My guess is the people who choose in person are going to end up doing a lot of online classes too.
  4. Get the Trump pen holder too. Has good reviews. https://www.amazon.com/Original-Dump-Trump-Pen-Holder/dp/B01KJJS8F0/ref=pd_bxgy_img_2/138-3626699-1728101?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01KJJS8F0&pd_rd_r=caf12b17-710d-4b76-a60b-9a725e2091b6&pd_rd_w=4tCgC&pd_rd_wg=DYCTg&pf_rd_p=ce6c479b-ef53-49a6-845b-bbbf35c28dd3&pf_rd_r=NTHBK6TY1NHEKZJNJ4XY&psc=1&refRID=NTHBK6TY1NHEKZJNJ4XY
  5. They have been going back and forth between meteor and volcanic eruption for a while now. Both are plausible causes. IIRC, they were looking at an impact crater under the Greenland ice sheet not too long ago. https://theconversation.com/new-evidence-that-an-extraterrestrial-collision-12-800-years-ago-triggered-an-abrupt-climate-change-for-earth-118244
  6. Dave has some good info, but also some niche advice and some is just out of date/wrong. He takes some good generic advice but I think he tries too hard to make a gimmick out of that to sell books to everyone. I think it's something that applies to a more narrow set of people who have difficulty with finance in general. Most people don't really need to do most of what he is saying. I still like listening to his show sometimes when I'm driving, but after a while it's very repetitive content. There are a few things he says that I just don't like. One thing is I always hear is him advising people to buy used cars instead of new. That is OK if you are mechanically inclined and like spending time working on cars, but for a lot of people who are not, you can end up sinking a lot of time and money into a used car too. The other thing he says a lot is to never use credit cards. Why not? My credit cards paid me more than $1000 back last year and I didn't pay a cent in interest. Why turn that down.
  7. I doubt that real psycopaths and narcisists would actually spend time taking the test.
  8. For bad satire, your first guess should be Babylon Bee. https://babylonbee.com/news/progressive-parents-disappointed-in-how-white-their-children-are
  9. Two recent studies looked at the relationship between personality traits and reactions to restrictions put in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. Researchers found that people possessing so-called "Dark Triad" traits—narcissism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism—were less likely to comply with restrictions or engage in preventative measures against the pandemic. However, researchers also emphasized the small role personality traits have in the overall response to pandemic restrictions, like face-mask mandates and social-distancing requirements. https://www.newsweek.com/narcissists-psychopaths-face-mask-requirement-mandate-social-distancing-covid-19-coronavirus-1519732
  10. It might have changed on Thursday. The July 16th executive order now states that indoor businesses in Colorado must refuse service to anyone not wearing a mask.
  11. Not directly Covid related, but this would be bad timing. CDC Takes Action to Prepare Against “G4” Swine Flu Viruses in China with Pandemic Potential https://www.cdc.gov/flu/spotlights/2019-2020/cdc-prepare-swine-flu.html
  12. Generally they cull animals due to the risk of spreading the contagion back to humans, either directly (by contact or handling), or indirectly (by spreading it to another species of animal).
