    I hope you can find another food source before winter! We'd hate to see you turn to cannibalism.

    Pfizer and German biotech firm BioNTech announced Monday their coronavirus vaccine was more than 90% effective in preventing Covid-19 among those without evidence of prior infection, hailing the development as “a great day for science and humanity.”

    “I think we can see light at the end of the tunnel,” Pfizer Chairman and CEO Dr. Albert Bourla told CNBC’s Meg Tirell on “Squawk Box.”

    Too late for some who regularly eat their girlfriends. I assume that includes you. Hell, you and Mickey will eat anything.

    I had about 30K in a bear market ETF (DUG), but I sold it Friday for a little profit when it looked like Biden had won. It's down 28% this morning. I'm in shock that I didn't engage in my usual buy-high/sell-low transaction. I can afford new tires for my F350 now; plus a fifth of a smooth single malt scotch. I've tried bragging up my foresight to my wife but she keeps pointing at the times I was wrong. That's not nice

    Doing well with electric car companies NOT NAMED TESLA.

    Nio is chinese based, but I have a feeling they will come to America under a Biden admin. Fisker has been around for a while, they are a more niche company. Recently moved to Manhattan Beach to set up their main office.

    I actually used Walmart for the first time to buy stuff. Got a coffee maker made by Instant Pot that does both Keurig Kcups and Nespresso pods. I heard they are really making a push to get a bigger online presence compete with Amazon.

    As Black Friday is spread out over the whole month now, they will probably try to get loss leaders to entice customers to start using the App. Its installed on my phone, I actually got a doorbuster yesterday but cancelled teh order ($150 lenovo laptop, which was half off).

    As more people buy their gifts online they could get a lot of growth.

    More than an 1000 people are dying per day. STILL.

    Just staggering when you think about it how normalized this has become.

    And it would be 100% warranted. Just need the stimulus.

    We are reaching yet another wave with decreased available beds and hospitalizations are thru the roof every single place.

    Corona virus finally effected my job. I am going to make out like a bandit though. I was going to take early retirement on January 15th anyway, but now I'm going to be on administrative leave until January 30th starting in two weeks. Then I get 20 weeks of severance pay and reduced cobra till I go on Medicare June 1st. Talk about fortunate timing.
