  1. I mean...I agree that Trump was terrible to lead it. I get the reading there though...that the travel ban was racist/xenophobic. It very well could've been...and Trump got lucky. But I really didn't notice that much criticism, because it quickly became apparent that it was a wise decision.
  2. I keep hearing this brought up, and I pay pretty close attention to politics, but I really don't remember that. I certainly wouldn't call him racist for attempting to stop the spread of a pandemic. (He had plenty of policies that were racist...but that wasn't one of them.)
  3. Having 0% of your net worth in crypto is betting against it ever being a thing...and it definitely seems like it's going to be a thing. Having even 1% is hedging against inflation.
  4. To paraphrase a friend, it's probably riskier at this point to not have any crypto than to have at least some.
  5. So some good things have been happening. Crypto's really killing it lately.
  6. Huh. First I'm hearing of this. Also, there was a radio station playing Christmas songs like 2-3 weeks ago here. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/christmas-music-season-data/
  7. Same ol', same ol'. We went back to partial "in-person", though I only have one student there. Work load has been kind of light due to some students being absent, so that's kind of nice. Going to be around here for Thanksgiving, and then we'll likely go up to my hometown for Christmas.
  8. Hope everyone's doing well. I got sick for a few days the weekend before last and was Covid-worried...but test turned out negative.
  9. Before my nephew, I had a few relatives that had it...but it took 4-5 months for it to really reach my circle. I wasn't even advocating for anything policy-wise. I was just saying, "Hey, let's not completely dismiss the notion that this thing is going to only affect old/immuno-compromised people." As for me, my sister is immuno-compromised, and my wife also doesn't have the best immune system...so we've done the best we've can to be careful and minimize exposure.
  10. He hasn't been hospitalized and hasn't had trouble breathing or anything, but he has just generally felt awful (throwing up and sweats) for a couple of weeks. (He tested Covid positive.) I think part of the concern isn't just death...it's that a lot of these folks could have long-term health effects. So even taking the somewhat cynical/pragmatic view of looking at things from an economic perspective...that's probably not going to help us.
  11. My otherwise healthy nephew is 18 and has been having a hard time battling Covid for the past two weeks.
