Re: My gift to all of you for 2021

Funny thing ... ... multi-ingredient pain killers with Tylenol + NSAID have been on the market since 1960 when Excedrin was introduced. But it is way more profitable to sell scheduled drugs via prescription than generic OTC powders. Free market economy and all that. My go to is Tylenol + Naprosen.

Re: Theme Suggestions for 2021

Not a bad theme IMO.

Once you discard the whole introspection blather pushed out by the BORG, it got some Fury Road flair to it and a splash of piracy.

Maybe some raids and land grabs will be in order.

What I really want to know is if Paiute is already plural and adding the “s” is superfluous.

Re: CoVid-19 and the 2021 Burning Man Event

It would be a mighty experiment in culture for the BORG to just open up pre-registration for tickets and actually know how much demand there is. The survey is really unreliable for that kind of stuff. Even if they survive to hold another permitted Playa event, I’d expect it to be reminiscent of the ...

Re: socks - cotton, silk, wool or bamboo

I like bamboo socks. Dryness is a bit below wool but durability is better.

If they were more affordable...

Wool still has an edge in my book.
