Re: A Battery Question

Lithium batteries don't like to be left fully charged for long times... It's better to leave them at 70-80% if storing them for long periods.

Do you (or can you) leave a fridge running and leave them in there? Doesn't have to be a cold fridge... Just "not hot"

Re: 7.3 audio issues?

Well, I probably should have just lived with this issue. Now 7.3 is noticeably lower in volume than 7.2 or 7.1 on all my sets.

Annoying when you're flipping though channels.

All it takes is a rather gentle foot on his back. That is not me that is my daughter the cop.
I'm inclined to call BS on that. Probably OK for the Village of Beverly Hills or Birmingham, but not in some sections of Detroit or Flint. Not sure about that section of Minneapolis.

Re: Oh, just another white cop kneeling on a defenseless black man’s throat until he dies

Has anyone seen the video between the time they first confront the man and the later video where the cop has him on the ground? Not me...yet. I saw him handcuffed and upright walking. As to what happened after I don't know. But the guy was handcuffed when he was on the ground so there was no cause ...

I simply asked if you have a problem with Twitter effectively taking sides and filling the shoes of a politician's opposition. Apparently you don't.

Re: Michigan artificially inflated COVID-19 numbers

I would not say it's "inflating the numbers" to combine the two test anymore than them using the total confirmed number as the "current" number of cases. They never subtract out the "recovered" cases, which should be done so we have an actual "current" count. It's just one data point to see who's al...

Re: Trump. Like Kwame Kilpatrick.

Except that Trump gets stuff done to make the country better... Kwame? Not so much. Nothing for the country and nothing for the city, aside from a few house parties. I cannot believe Mike Duggan was supporting Kwame and it looked like he was rooting for his release. Sounded like he might have even g...

Re: The Palace

The Palace was a pain in the butt to get to from the West side of the metro area. Other than that, I did like the place. The company had a suite there so I could get free tickets if I wanted to ensure the commute. It was a mess getting out of there, especially when you were forced the wrong way by t...

7.3 audio issues?

Does anyone else watch 7.3? There are a few times recently when I've experienced intermittent audio dropouts. The dropouts are short - less than a second - and occur every few seconds. On one TV it's more pronounced than the other three. If I change the channel and come back to 7.3, it seems to go a...

Re: Gov. Cuomo Says Coronavirus Projections from Experts Were All Wrong

Does that mean there's a set of "alternative facts" floating around out there?

Folks (like our Gov) have been treating all the models as scientific fact when in reality they are all just opinions, with some only slightly better than a Magic 8 Ball.
