You don't use as much toilet paper if...

...you use both sides.

I just found out that people are only using one side of the toilet paper.

Well, duh, if you use both sides, you only use half as much.

Leading US PPE Manufacturer Still Fighting Against Verdict Obtained By Michael Avenatti

(Reuters) - In 2017, before he became a household name, Michael Avenatti won a jury verdict of nearly a half-billion dollars for a class of California medical centers. Avenatti, at the time a name partner of Eagan Avenatti, was the court-appointed lead counsel for the class, which claimed Kimberly-Clark and Halyard Health were fraudulently marketing surgical gowns that failed to block communicable diseases.In 2017, before he became a household name, Michael Avenatti won a jury verdict of nearly a half-billion dollars for a class of California medical centers. Avenatti, at the time a name partner of Eagan Avenatti, was the court-appointed lead counsel for the class, which claimed Kimberly-Clark and Halyard Health were fraudulently marketing surgical gowns that failed to block communicable diseases.

The defendants, which have always denied the class allegations, persuaded U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee of Los Angeles to slash the verdict to about $26 million. That judgment is now on appeal, by both the class and the defendants, at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

If you enjoyed Christine "I'm not a witch" O'Donnell....


...then Delaware has yet another gift for you.

We now have an honest-to-goodness white nationalist running for the GOP Senate nomination in Delaware.

Lauren unwittingly participated in the pharmaceutical industries agenda which led to the nationwide opioid addiction crisis. Ironically, she found herself hopelessly addicted as well, and even worked for drug cartel families and illicit organized crime gangs from Detroit.


Where to begin...

Lauren will re-divert welfare programs, into an incentive program for marriage and children. Married couples with 3 or more children will receive financial stipends. Those who divorce will lose all benefits. These benefits will far surpass any potential child support received after. Single parents who marry will be grand fathered into the program for a period of 10 years, after which the benefit will only be applied for those who marry and have children together. End no fault divorce nationally.

Hey DU, I realize it must be the Rambling Lunatic Hour again on TV, but...

...could we please just agree that a lot of infuriating, bizarre and downright jawdroppingly stupid stuff will be said?

I'll catch the highlight clips later, but why do people subject themselves to this every day?

Call it "break time" and do something good for yourself.

The 1976 Daytona 500 (no spoilers, please)



If nothing else, just scroll to around 1:03:00 and watch the last couple of laps.

Whatta cliffhanger. How did I miss this the first time around.

More on Chloroquine/Azithromycin. And On Dr. Raoult

More on Chloroquine/Azithromycin. And On Dr. Raoult.

And we’re missing a very important aggregate number indeed: a control group. How would a comparable group of patients have performed in these RNA tests for contagiousness under another standard of care? Even with or without azithromycin, if you can’t stand the thought of not giving them hydroxychloroquine? We don’t know. Without matched controls, and without being able to look at individual patient data, we just don’t know how good this treatment was or frankly if it was any good at all. We may be seeing a notable effect size in what is still a small trial, or we may be seeing something that’s not that remarkable or the result of a poorly controlled protocol.
