    I hate Benoit Paire !

    Yes thanks, I noticed. 67 percent of men in America have no facial hair, so conforming is not the issue. (Had I been under a massive rock I'd probably have one hell of a beard)

    I hate Benoit Paire !

    Your dislike of Paire is wasted. Men who grow large or elaborate beards are psychologically often expressing a disregard for what other people think.

    Falling apart - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Most people drink at least a little and don't seem to wind up with cirrhosis, so lets' not be overdramatic here. Lowering sperm count seems a good thing to me, but here again, we've never heard of social drinkers being unable to reproduce. The only thing I'd agree on is that there's probably...

    Falling apart - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    A number of clinical studies have shown that up to about two drinks per day can reduce the risk of both dementia and heart disease. No, the studies were not industry funded.

    Will Iga Świątek be as successful as Agnieszka Radwańska?

    Try to be better prepared in the future! Some one week tour events even have those five matches on consecutive days, Wednesday to Sunday.

    Will Iga Świątek be as successful as Agnieszka Radwańska?

    Not impressed. A slam requires you to win 7 matches in two weeks, most tour events require you to win 5 matches in one week, a more demanding task

    If you're not part of the cure, you're part of the disease.

    in the journal Science Translational Medicine in 2018 you can find the study showing enterococcus strains not killed by hand sanitizer. This was, and will be, inevitable in the future. The antibiotic situation is even more dire as many bacteria for which there is only one effective antibiotic...

    If you're not part of the cure, you're part of the disease.

    I suppose there always have to be exceptions, but a clinic usually has plenty of places to wash hands, and the time difference between washing hands and spreading on hand sanitizer is literally seconds.

    If you're not part of the cure, you're part of the disease.

    DON'T!! 1) you're creating the next pandemic. Was reported a few years ago in medical literature that some potentially dangerous bacteria, such as enterococcus strains, are becoming resistant to the effects of hand sanitizers. And as resistance to antibiotics is also increasing, it's little...

    Who owns Donnay?

    Owned by the British Fraser Group, which also owns Slazenger. This fellow Howie seems to be their US distributor, and one has the sense he does that entirely by himself. I've wondered if his assertion that he can be reached at his phone number 24 hours a day 365 days a year has made his...

    Will Iga Świątek be as successful as Agnieszka Radwańska?

    Will Iga Świątek be as successful as Agnieszka Radwańska?

    Typically this board is absurdly slam-centric. Iga has won all of 2 tournaments, albeit as a teenager, so has a long way to go. Aga won 20 tournaments and nearly 600 matches, reached #2 in rankings, all before her early retirement at age 29. Iga has great potential but the tour has been...

    Henry Cavill is out as Superman in the WB Superman Franchise!

    Good news for Henry! George Reeves was hopelessly typecast by the role and suffered for it. Sean Connery got out of his gig in time to resurrect a serious acting career.

    If you're not part of the cure, you're part of the disease.

    Don PPE 5 days a week and bring hope, succor, and high quality medical care regardless of ability to pay to the wretched, the dispossessed, the alientated and the craven ill, with no qualifications for race, religion, creed, national origin, gender(s), or favorite member of the Big 3.

    Fed won't do well this year with the crowd (or lack thereof)

    Thread fails from the first sentence. As Zeb points out, we've never seen Fed play without a crowd, so assuming he needs the crowd makes absolutely no sense

    RIP Christopher Plummer, one of the GOAT Actors.

    1) Greatest classical actor of our century is a stretch. A very good actor. 2) A guy who points out he was drunk during filming of some scenes of "The Sound of Music" disrespects his own profession far more than I do

    RIP Christopher Plummer, one of the GOAT Actors.

    I read well, thank you. Regenerative doesn't mean you started the thing, but that you perpetuate it.
