  1. I looked on there....not sure if they are fake/bad products though.
  2. That's maximum federal level allowed. Actual products contain far less, as they are tested and there are always variances in harvested product. Anyway, 0.3% is a subclinical level. It produces no observable effects.
  3. If COVID-19 had happened in 1919, it would probably have killed more people than the Spanish Flu. Thankfully, the state of medical sciences has greatly improved over the past 102 years.
  4. You guys are lucky. I get nothing because of the income caps. The only time the IRS is interested in me, is in the tax it wants me to pay.
  5. Hello Friends My wife's younger sister has suffered from seizures all her life. She has controlled it with phenobarbital. But the side effects have been awful, making her a low functioning human being. She has always been like this. Phenobarbital is a barbiturate with sedative effects. During Christmas, we sent the family a balikbayan box. In the box were a couple of (expensive) bottles of CBD oil we got for her. As you might know, CBD is non-psychoactive and legal in the US. It is extracted from hemp plants that don't have any THC, etc. It has been used with great success to treat seizures, to such an extent, that a British company won regulatory approval for its proprietary preparation in order to treat certain forms of pediatric epilepsy, before which it was able to demonstrate greatly reduced seizure incidents in young children. Long story short, the CBD appears to have changed my sister in law's life. She takes a couple of drops a day, one morning, one evening. She's been able to cut back to half her old phenobarbital daily dose, and she's like a different person now, starting up a fish business and actually starting to be able to take care of herself and her children much better. She's not the dull drugged out woman of before. And really, she's been maintaining a low dose to make the stuff last. I think a higher dose might mean she can cut out the phenobarbital entirely. I don't want to see her relapse to her former state. I don't know what the legal status is for CBD in the RoP. But sending some in a large package seemed like an acceptable risk. One small problem, however: she's running out of the stuff I sent her for Christmas, and I need to know if there are local sources, since it can take months to ship her more in a BB box. Any advice or recommendations will be sincerely appreciated. Reboot.
  6. Hey everyone. Don't come here as often as I used to. How are you doing in the middle of this? Hope you're all well and happy.
  7. I have a friend over there where the outbreak started. His mother collapsed. He took her to the hospital. They turned them away. They don't have enough people/resources do deal with this right now. Plus I read that Germany screwed them. The Italians ordered a bunch of supplies, face masks, etc, and PAID for them, and the Germans just seized it at the border for themselves.
  8. Italians saying 99% of deaths are people with pre-existing illness. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-18/99-of-those-who-died-from-virus-had-other-illness-italy-says
  9. I hope not Tommy T. We get no guarantees in this life. Stay safe and healthy brother!
  10. The stats are far from perfect. Firstly, the confirmed cases are not reflective of the true rate of infection. That's almost certainly way higher. But they are enough to go on in terms of this being a serious situation.
  11. Hey everyone. Just popping in. I've talked to some of the people who are considered experts. Some have even met with the US President. It's in my line of work. It's my non-expert but well-informed opinion based on a good amount of evidence, that if you're in the Philippines, you'll be OK. Community spread there shouldn't be in the same degree as it is in more northerly, colder, and less humid latitudes. The weather there isn't conducive to a big spread of the virus, moreover, the government is taking measures (all though in the RoP, we all know how that might work out). Just don't do stupid things, OK?
  12. I have one of those expensive pineapple fiber ones from when I was the groom. Set me back about 4k.
  13. In my house, bagoong and dried fish get cooked outside.
  14. Cases have tripled over the weekend. Nearly 3000 confirmed. Stay safe over there guys. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/third-us-coronavirus-case-confirmed-orange-county Moderator's Note; Added link as some like to consider the source.
  15. Part of this problem is the filthiness and lack of respect for others that exists in mainland China. Makes it easy to go viral. Part of preparing for the beijing olympics was merely pushing these people to stop spitting in the streets, to cover their mouths when they cough, and use soap to wash their hands after using their hole in the ground squat shitters. The upside of all the filth and inhumanity is that they've produced a human strain so robust they have to back up and run them over again 2 or 3 extra times to make sure they are dead, as often happens in that country.
