Ah, but the real question is- how many cards does he have?

I think he had one but as my memory is somewhat vague on that I could very well be ambiguous on my answer.

I left here a few years ago because of a few posters. I'm here today because of a few posters over at the other place. I think I'm leaving all together until after November 3rd. I have lived 1/3 of the last 35 years of my life at a firehouse, I am not sensitive, but, it is totally and utterly impossible to go anywhere anymore and NOT have politics rammed down your throat in some form or another, I don't need it, I don't want it, and, I can debate you all day on it if I wanted to, sorry, is it not the new normal, it was never normal and never will be. Want to stir the pot? Go to the arena, COOL. Want to talk about politics? go to the arena, COOL. Got no problems with that. Leave the religion/politics/hot topics/controversy out of posts and threads not in the arena. The other place doesn't have an arena feature. Might be a good idea for them. Maybe start a whole new COG forum featuring nothing but links to political stories and religious debate. Great! I'm real close now to just leaving, everything, forum, COG, rallies, tech sessions, etc... i'm not sensitive, I just don't want to go to a place thats about a great bike and all the people who ride it and be bombarded with politics. But, like in life, when that happens, I simply walk away and it's looking that way. I'm so glad and blessed we live in a country where that's still possible.

But people do not talk politics on tech pages. The tech threads on here and the other forum seem to be free of politics. Just don't go to the non-tech posts and you'll be fine. Don't give up on us just yet!

And there is nothing wrong with being sensitive. Chicks secretly dig sensitive guys.

I remember when I first heard of the Vid. I wondered if that would become political.
It's funny, I wondered that right away. I don't even friggin' vote!

   No they don't, but keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel manly.  8) 8) 8) 8)

..as in co.VID'

Oh, thanks.  I have never heard of/seen COVID-19 being called "the Vid".  I thought it was about some kind of infamous video :)

Calling it the "VID" is a take off play on words from the term "HIV" referring to the virus that causes AIDS, pronounced like "him" but saying the "V" which is popular in more urban settings.

Since HIV is an acronym, and vid is a syllable, I don't think that is quite right...but I'm no urban linguistics expert and I also may be overly sensitive to forum topics.  ;D  :stirpot:

English was not my strong point in school, well, actually school was not my strong point.

COVID means  Corona Virus Disease, which I would call acronym

Is COVID a word or a acronym?

Call it whatever you want downtown. ;D
