Rubio, has exactly the same chance I have of being president.  IE zero.  Republicans don’t trust him, therefore, he is toast.  

Agree, but he doesn't think so.

John how many people actually live above the Arctic circle line (all countries)?  Quarter of a million is my wild guess, and I am probably high.  

"Only four million people live north of the Arctic Circle because of the climate; nonetheless, some areas have been settled for thousands of years by indigenous peoples, who today make up 10% of the region's population.[8] The largest communities north of the Arctic Circle are situated in Russia, Norway and Sweden:"

Alaska is not 24 hours of daylight.It is 6 months of 21 hours and 6 months of 21 hours of darkness.

It was just a joke. Sheesh.

Try again: "About 4 million people live north of the Arctic Circle, due to the severe climate. 10% of the region’s population is made of indigenous people, who have inhabited the area for thousands of years".

If you were to move a bit up north you could get that for a while during the year.

That is a bit of a surprise I must say.  Of course, John’s Kansas comparison put it into perspective.

Why are you here?

 

If you hate cruising, please go to the Greenpeace web page and leave us in our misery alone.  

I am not american but even I know this won't go nowhere. If you think this is gonna sway the CDC and whoever else needs swaying then to quote George Dzundza in basic instinct you got goddamn twitty birds flying around your head.

It will get no support because cruise ship are polluting floating covid hubs who employ about what 10-15 americans each NCL pride being the exception.

Oh so, the container ships that bring all the imported items you buy at Walmart and Costco and Target aren't polluters?  More of them than cruise ships and they are still sailing.

As for COVID Infection hubs, the the notable exception of the Princess Cruise Lines early on--the Diamond Princess, Grand Princess and Ruby Princess--none of the other cruise ships have had many cases relative to total passengers and crew and very few, if any deaths.  Diamond Princess had 712 cases and14 deaths out of 3,711. Ruby Princess had 852 cases and 28 deaths out of 3800 on board and Grand Princess had 122 cases and 7 out of 3500 people. Note  .the for the Grand Princess, 700

people tested negative.  And that was when early PCR tests were clicking out a lot of false positives.

That would be the best way to eradicate COVID-19.  Fauci said that Texas’ numbers are low because we are going outside and enjoying the weather.

He does have some great 1 liners in that movie.  Being serious though. There is more chance of the Miami Marlins facing the Baltimore Orioles in the world series final and each final game being  won with no hitter than there is of this senate vote doing anything.

At 6 months it magically swaps from 21 hours of light to 21 hours of dark. 🤔🤣🤣

 

Plus Alaska is huge, northern parts get more summer daylight than northern parts.

 

Any part of Alaska within the Arctic Circle gets 24 hours of sunlight on at least the June Solstice

That is too deep for me.Mrs,66 and I have been married 54 years.She does not share my desire for 24 hours of daylight.Therefore,it is a desire that shall not come to be.

What is sheesh ? Is that a real word ?

'Sheesh' is actually a normal word in the dictionary, and it means “to express disbelief or exasperation”. On TikTok, it has exactly the same meaning and is usually used to express shock, surprise or excitement in something.Mar 31, 2021
