Most ridiculous in price.
Possibly an understatement. When does a price increase become price gouging?
When they try to charge $32 for ten rolls of toilet paper?

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

The Alabama shut down order closed sporting goods stores like Academy Sports but not gun shops. Academy sells a metric ton of guns a month and is the low cost guns and ammo dealer in the state. I am guessing someone really politicked well to get them closed. The gun shops can now print money. I agr...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

My follow up is what would it take in terms of it actually happening? How serious would the virus situation have to get before they would shut down state to state travel? And at what point would the public accept it? You are asking for opinion based upon conjecture. I think it is sufficient to say ...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

I don't expect you to, but what would need to occur to achieve that restriction in America? A state of emergency? Martial law? An agreement between governor's and state troopers? Martial law would likely do it, but I expect there would still be legal challenges. I'm not an attorney, nor did I stay ...

Just for a little perspective that may help. We pay around $400 a month for our power bill. Here in socal. And we live in an 800sqft home. The electric company turned private some years ago. And they, of course, have raped the consumer ever since. Just another reason we are moving. Very few can affo...

AT&T is allowing customers to push their bills out to 5-15-20. I would think other carriers and bills may be doing the same.

Re: Affordable Zippo leak proof case.

Well it's official as of yesterday. This thing held fluid for over 2 months. And it's still going strong. I don't think I'll use a regular Zippo case ever again. At least not for my daily use Zippo.
