Thread States to receive biggest boost yet in vaccine doses, White House tells governors
All of this great progress and hope was done in just four weeks of this administration taking over. Four weeks eclipsing four years of abhorrent governance from the last administration.


Thread Last Chance PS5 & XSX Pickup |OT| “I’m going dressed as bushes.”
Holy crap I finally managed to get one! Couldn't sleep so I used popfindr while browsing other stuff and noticed my closest Target got six this morning. Rushed to the Target and they confirmed they were in the trucks that just showed up so they took our names and phone numbers down (there were five of us including a cop) to call us back into the store to grab ours. Don't give up and keep using popfindr!


Thread White House: US expects to deliver enough vaccine this summer for 2-dose regimen for 300M Americans (91% of the population)
Imagine what can be done when a competent and functional administration takes over. Incredible the progress Biden's administration made and it hasn't even been a fucking week.


Thread Biden signs 1st executive orders, targeting Trump policies on immigration, climate change, racial equity and virus.
It's going to take me a while to adjust to reading the words "White House" without imagining the worst. I remember how huge of a heel turn it felt after 2016 whenever those words were uttered or written.


Thread Tracking the COVID-vaccines || 44 million shots given so far (Jan. 18)
Wow were there actually almost four million vaccinations in three days? That's awesome, we just need to keep that up. Also my 63 year old mother got her second shot a few days ago. Only symptom she had was pain at the injection site which vanished after 36 hours.


Thread U.S. president-elect Joe Biden is planning to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit via executive action on his first day in office.
I remember the opposite of this being one of the first executive actions Trump took in January 2017. Poetic.


Thread Biden passes 270 votes in the EC and officially wins the 2020 election; Trump no longer has any legal recourse to remain President past January 20th

Thread ABCNews: Trump blasts McConnell over timing of Senate hearing with postmaster general
"Crazy Pelosi called the House to question the postmaster general and they're not even listed on Zillow! Believe me, I checked. No one knows Zillow or Redfin better than me."


Thread Oxford University's team 'absolutely on track', coronavirus vaccine likely to be available by September
So if Oxford University's vaccine moves forward with widespread use in September, does that mean only the UK gets it? Not sure how its distribution works so apologies if it's a dumb question.


Thread Rumour: The unannounced project at The Initiative runs on Unreal Engine 4 and features "various weapons, gadgets, and a camera surveillance system"
Could they be reviving Black Tusk's stealth RPG before they took over Gears as Coalition?


Thread Cinemark reveals plans to start reopening cinemas on July 1 (will follow all local SD guidelines, lower ticket prices, classic films)
What I see as a viable solution for the next year is capping attendance at 50% and closing off every two seats. The lower cap is something AMC announced a week before the shelter in place hit California. That way every fourth seat has someone sitting in it, but only up to 50% of available seats.


Thread Do people really think everything’s gonna magically open again May 1st?
I think there's confusion on everything "going back to normal" being used interchangibly between full blown lockdowns/shelter in place and a loosening of social distancing restrictions. I don't think we'll be in lockdown/hardcore shelter in place mode past end of May/early June. What I do believe we'll see is a continuing of maintaining six feet apart, wearing gloves and masks, and capping capacity for any given place at 50% of what they typically are. I can see us returning to movie theaters this summer, for example, but capping attendance at half the seats. At least for the states smart enough to continue these types of measures indefinitely even past the shelter in place stopping. Those types of changes I see sticking until sometime in 2021 or when we have a promising vaccine.


Thread Trump in Ultimate This Is Fine Mode: "We can expect that by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery...a lot of great things will be happening."
"I love June, it's the best month of the year and I know many good months, let me tell you. Billions and billions of months."


Thread Anyone else having a hard time trying to self-isolate?
I've been feeling the same as you, OP. It's necessary, but it's definitely been daunting mentally and emotionally. The extent of my time out of the home has been to grab lunch or do grocery/supply runs. I think the closure of gyms has been the hardest. Nine and a half years of lifting 3x/week and a shelter in place is what took me down. I was expecting some major back injury or something to be what kept me from the gym for a while, but not this. :( It made me realize how much of a benefit lifting's been for my overall health beyond any body composition benefits.


Thread Medical experts at the White House have to patiently explain to Trump that his idea of using the flu vaccine to address the coronavirus will not work.

And where have they been this entire time?


Thread Secretary of State Mike Pompeo writes letter indicating he will defy congressional subpeona for State Department documents and block depositions
So if this isn't going to be reinforced, who will enforce it? Does the Military need to step in to get these people to actually follow the law?


Thread House Dems expected to announce formal Impeachment inquiry as early as today
And then the GOP Senate votes against it. So....?

Thread Introvert ERA: How do you cope with your personality?
The best advice I can give coming from a strong introvert such as myself is to try and find a friend who has matches you energetically. One on one interactions work best for us so if you can use that to then find someone who's not high energy as well will do wonders. It's nice knowing you can hang out with another like minded individual who also doesn't need there to be constant conversation or action in order to be present with you. Another useful strategy is to quietly pull yourself away from the group to recharge. Bathrooms work best for this. Then you'll have a little more energy to be engaging with them again. You could also actually try to engage with extroverts by bringing up something you know they'll be into talking about. Once they get going they won't stop. Eventually they'll tell you how enjoyable it is to be having conversations with you (when in reality they just finally found someone who lets them hear themselves speak to oblivion). Next thing you know you have a friend who does all the conversational and activity based heavy lifting.

Thread AMC A-List going up in price in 15 states to $21.95/23.95
From the second paragraph I have no doubt they'll add more next year. I suspect Regal will add their own, (they just started allowing any movie theater chain to have their own subscription through them), and Cinemark could (or rather, should) introduce an actual movie subscription program on top of their current discount-only system.


Thread MoviePass Discussion
I'm still distraught over not being able to watch the same movie more than once. That was the thing that got me into MoviePass and the thing that got me to cancel my annual subscription the moment they took it away. :( I'd be totally cool with being gated from watching more than 10 movies a month if it meant I could watch the same one repeatedly.

Well not having people who claim to know it all come in and manipulate newcomers into pumping their portfolio is a start. No one in crypto knows anything. This is the wild west and the sudden massive correction is further proof of that. Find a coin with a legit team, a proposal to solve a real-world problem on their whitepaper, high volume, and a reasonable amount of total/max supply (

Thread Assassin’s Creed Odyssey |OT| Ἄνδρα ἢ γυναῖκα μοι ἔννεπε, Μοῦσα
How close is this game to Origins? I absolutely loved Origins but I'm not fatigued or ready to move on from it yet so if it borrows a lot from Origins I'd probably stick to that for a little while longer.
