Question of the Day:

If given the chance... will you take the COVID-19 vaccine?

Not for a "virus" with a 99% survival rate.
In regard to the mRNA vaccines currently being rolled out? Hell no.
Once a more traditional style one is rolled out (Astra/Oxford) and has been vetted, I may consider at a future time.
Fuck yeah I'm getting it!  Survivability rate is high yes, but there are still the people out there with long term lung damage who were endurance athletes.  I don't want to deal with that shit when I'm pedaling from Durango to Moab  our out on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and pedaling up 16k vertical feet a day.

The reality though is I won't be getting it for some time because I'm only 46 and in the top 10% health bracket for my age.  So I'll be waiting for all the high risk folks to get the vaccine first.

Best defense to this virus is being physically fit with a strong immune system but still I'd get the vaccine at my first opportunity.

I will likely wait at least a year or two.

share a general responsibility for all humanity,
our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful."

No, most likely not the first go around.  Too new.  Need more time with the study.

Question of the Day:

If you're a fake dip user, where do you buy it? Do you order online or do you have a favorite brick and mortar location?

Looking to build out a list on the main site as well: https://www.killthecan.org/where-do-you-buy-your-fake-dip/

I'm an online guy primarily. Links to most of them can be found here: https://www.killthecan.org/your-quit/smokeless-alternatives/

When I do buy in store it'll typically be WalMart (SMC has national distribution) or Giant Eagle (grocery store)
I could never find Baccoff around me in a brick and mortar location. I always had to order it from Amazon or dipstop.com.
I always got my Jake's Mint pouches direct from their website
ABQ= Always Be Quitting

My HOF Speech

Question of the Day:

Is there particular CONSPIRACY THEORY that you think is most likely true?

More discussion here (if you dare ;) ): https://ktcforum.org/index.php?topic=269.0

This is a rabbit hole that I personally love to go down. There's a bunch of them that I think have validity...

For the purposes of this discussion I'll just say I don't think there's a chance in hell that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself.
^Absolutely.

I love to read about conspiracy theories but don't believe most of them. The one I do think is true relates to the moon landing (or lack thereof).
I think that one is too big, with too many moving pieces to keep it a secret for 50+ years. Also, my father is a design engineer at Goodyear for those same 50+ years who has worked on tire substitutes for a new lunar lander. Cannot imagine a corporation that big would put a senior engineer on a project built on a fallacy.

For one I put some faith in, I agree whole heartedly with Chewie on Epstein
You make an interesting point. But with all the advancements in science and technology, just curious why we haven't been back there lately. Seems like its a lot of work to get people onto the ISS. If it is that much work in 2020, to get to the moon back in the late 60's and early 70's seems improbable. And that is just my reasoning. There are so many inconsistencies when you dig into this one it's hard not to scratch your head.
Rumor has it that we (NASA) has lost track of the millions of pieces of paper and data files that worked out all the necessary math to make it happen back then. And we no longer use the tech that was around back then.. I know that doesn't help my stance, I just find it interesting.  We stopped working on the lunar program because there was nothing to see or do up there? Why try again now then?
