[quote]I've got the scars but I made through...somehow.[/quote] It's just been very odd to me. I don't dismiss all millennial claims of grievance. While I opposed many of the things they complain about, it is absolutely true that on the whole, my generation and older spent too fricking much mone...

[quote]But I'll say this, your generation has had two massive kicks to the balls. NIH got a kick right out of the gate. I only had the normal setbacks (divorce, booze, drugs, pussy) that could be overcome with some effort. The things you guys are dealing with are bigger than an effort issue.[/quote]...

[quote]Generals can win wars in a day, but we don't let them because of a host of other factors that come into play when you escape the realm of unified thought. [/quote]A very good analogy really. A General's job is to win the war. If you say, "General, go win the war......that's what you're be...

[quote]Again, this board upvoted a comic from Ben Garrison [/quote]I honestly haven't even seen said comic. I will say another thing that the medical "experts" suck at. They suck at articulating statistics and, of course, the media happily plays along. LIKELIHOOD matters. Yet, to these...

re: Dr. Fauci chuckles at Trump’s economic advisors pleas - ShortyRob
[quote]Okay, but people on this very board are ripping the likes of Fauci, Birx, and other docs who have a pretty good grip of statistics. It's happening in this thread! [/quote] In those cases, it's not their issue with statistics. It's the fact that they are single minded. Which, honestly, on i...

[quote]Most Docs are awesome at being docs. [/quote] One funny note in this is that I can recall reading multiple articles several years ago about the need for doctors to take more business courses in college because of the high rate of failure in private practice. Doctors didn't actually know ho...
