All I know is that I'm glad Steveoh hooked me up with some over-priced butt wipe. I'll leave the saber and test tube rattling as well as the conjecture to others.

Only problem Kevin, the photo is of an "in-heat" female!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

It's only a problem if you 'let' it be a problem. Here in NorCal us rednecks have learned to be accepting of our inner feminine side. Sort of metro-sexual country boys. It's okay to express yourself as who you ARE. We're ALL welcome and loved.

That being said, I've hit on (and unfortunately succeeded) hairier and rougher looking chicks than that back when I was drinking.

Well, Kevin. Every female I ever met, looked darn good when the last call for alcohol was announced! I say that with tongue in cheek, as I was never in the bar scene. Roller rinks, grocery stores, bowling alleys, to be sure. But bars? Nada!!

I don't think its extremest to at least be suspicious of the Chinese government in all of this. Their government is really morally terrible. Really. That's not racist, that's just a fact given their sea of human rights violations they engage in unapologetically every day. They're the 1933 Germans of our times in a lot of ways. Their government is truly fascist by the textbook definition of the term. A sort of secular, patriotic, religion based on national identity where private enterprise exists but in lock step with the regime who has ownership interests in many private businesses. Where people considered undesirable are either executed outright or carted off to concentration camps by the millions for either slow death in slavery or "reeducation." Where they invade their neighbors and commit genocide against the native populations. They really suck, as a government. Not necessarily as a people. But their government is truly evil.

As such, their government is morally low enough to engineer such a thing. That doesn't mean they did, or if they did, that doesn't mean they released it on purpose. Its well known that researchers from the Wuhan bioweapon lab often sell their test subjects at the local meat market to make an extra buck.

Or some local just ate a wild bat...

What is very likely is that China has lied about their own death toll. Its highly suspicious that in a country as populous as China they only lost 3300 and Italy has lost 11k already and climbing. There's lots of evidence that China has covered up their real death toll, which would be a significant piece of misinformation relevant to reaction to the disease.

The reason we tolerate China's plethora of human rights abuses is because all of our governments and many of our major corporations and tech firms are economically in bed with them. We can look the other way as long as it lines our pockets.

I wouldn't be too proud of that Chinese medical cooperation Bob, that equipment was made with the blood of oppressed peoples and citizens from all over China. As was the iMac I'm typing from, and which I wouldn't be ready to give up on moral principles... because its a nice piece of tech and I like nice tech. So I'm right there with you. Just don't kid yourself about what the Chinese government is. If they don't care about their own people enough to be so cruel to them, they don't care about Canada either. They just care about the economic and military strategic advantage they get from being friendly with key nations.

I have little doubts about the morality, or lack thereof, of many countries on this globe.... I can't do anything about the conditions under which medical equipment, or as you point out, technology, is produced.... However, I am grateful that in this time of need supplies can be shared worldwide....  8)

Im mighty sorry theres a corona virus /covid etc. I hope all you guys dont get it. I doubt it just happened on its own but im not a smart man .Corona tastes like piss smells. Bourbon ftw :). Awesome place you got here folks , i enjoy reading these threads and nobody seems to be really hateful even when they disagree, the world could use a lot more civil discussions & less "im right and if you disagree youre a bad person"
i've done a lot of stupid things in my life , but i'm probably not quite finished :)

This is why I feel the Guild has the best 'neighborly' vibe of all of the AG forums. There may not be the volume of posts but the small-town feel and the genuine-ness of the folks here is superb.

I have had a couple of disagreements with a folks here and with very rare exception it's other immediately diffused or (God forbid) I've manned up and said I was sorry for either a) jumping to conclusions, or b) just being an over-sensitive little bitch.

Great place to network. A prime example is the fact that I'm receiving some bullets on Tuesday from a Guild member whom I've never spoken to directly via any medium. He saw a post I made inquiring about a certain bullet mold and he offered to send me some to try before I purchased. This happen elsewhere I know as well, but here it's the norm rather than the exception.

All families bicker from time to time. But as Kevin mentions, most of the time we kiss fist bump elbow each other, and make up.

I have sharp elbows. Ask the kid in Jujutsu who took a cheap shot at me that time. I bet his rib still hurts. :)
