    Did Trump call it the world's largest plane?

    Aren’t you about to retire? How about max out Family Medical Leave act. Let doctors look long enough and they’ll find a problem to write up.

    Yes, I am about to retire. My retirement date is June 28th.

    As for FMLA, I have been using it for dependent care and military service disabilities. Since I am less than 30% disabled, I don’t qualify for “Wounded Warrior” leave.

    Yeah, it sucked that Mardi Gras was February 25th.
    It would have been a bold and controversial move to call it off,
    but it would have saved many lives. You couldn't ask for a better
    way to spread a virus; thousands of people from all over the world
    and all over the country packed cheek to jowl and totally carefree.
    The first confirmed case was thirteen days after Fat Tuesday.

    I'm still out there, albeit at a reduced presents. The nature of my job is that i seldom need to go closer the 20 feet to another person.

    The latest video from NTD News shows further evidence that China is lying about the death toll from the WuFlu. At the 4:50 mark, video and testimony show that many thousands of urns are being processed at the crematoriums, including one crematorium that had thousands processed on each of multiple days.

    Peak Prosperity also covers the same issue and covers a variety of media sources discussing the urn numbers starting at 6:50.

    A little WuFlu humor for my GT buddies. It might get me banned but here goes nothing:

    A suspected Covid-19 male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student female nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath.
    “Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"

    Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet."
    He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"

    Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and
    pulls back the covers.
    She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other.
    She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine."
    The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly,

    “Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very, very, closely:

    “Are - my - test - results - back?"

    I have never hated Communism so much in my entire life. I've said for years that I pray that I live to see the fall of Communism in China.....I might just get that wish after all. Hopefully, NK falls next, followed by the Iranian regime.

    China is SOOO lucky I'm not President. They think Trump says mean things to people, oh boy....I'd fill the news reels for months just ranting about Chinese communism.

    I haven't laughed that hard in a while, thank you. :cheers::animlol::bowdown::notworthy:

    For those of you who don't know, Sam Chui is a very popular, very knowledgeable and reputable airline and plane aficionado/reviewer. He travels the world on various aircraft; everything from large cargo jets to small passenger prop planes, and then reviews the aircraft, the airline, and the airport in question. I hope you find these videos interesting.

    I'm still trying to get caught up on all the post, so this may of been posted. I know several have asked about cleaning N95 mask and Duke University has released guidelines on how to clean them without damaging them.

    https://www.safety.duke.edu/sites/default/files/N-95_VHP-Decon-Re-Use.pdf

    The down side, I don't know that anyone has the equipment to be able to do it, I know I don't have a Hydrogen Peroxide room.

    This pandemic will end in the US by September, swine flu ended also. But by September tens of thousands will die. Two conclusions may be drawn already. The country should be better prepared for the next pandemic. China is an enemy, and should be weakened and dismantled into several states.

    I have been waiting like a 10 yr old on Xmas Eve for some reports from NYC on their use of this drug. They were supposed to start using it on Tuesday in controlled tests.

    Sounds like the good doctor knows what he is talking about.

    I’ve moved on. I’m now encountering many others who have also moved on from this. I’m not saying disregard common sense. Instead wake up.
