    I just finished watching the new Netflix documentary Seaspiracy. It's about a man who sets out to make a documentary about one thing, but ends up finding out some really bad truths about humans over fishing habits. I don't want to get into blaming any countries or anything like that. I was just wanting to see if anyone's watched it yet and what you think about it. In a nutshell, humans are egregiously over fishing our oceans. We're almost at a tipping point that's going to completely damage the ocean forever.

    I'll also say that the documentary was pretty sensationalized. The guy that made it really liked to make it seem like he was in danger at certain times when you could clearly see he wasn't. Also some of his numbers and data he refers to may or may not be true. One thing is true though and we've known it for a good while. We're definitely over fishing our oceans and hurting animals that live there.

    I've been a germaphobe my entire life. I hate going to restaurants and touching the menus, the glasses, silverware, the chairs.... everything. I even feel similar to my own house. I just don't like germs and do whatever it takes to atleast feel like I'm controlling them. When people found this out about me they'd usually give me a little bit of a hard time about it. They'd say you can't control it and to get over it. Well.... I bet some of those people are now changing their thoughts after this year. They've pretty much been forced to live like a normal germaphobe for almost a year now and the thoughts will probably now never leave their mind. Not saying that's a great thing, but it's a little nice knowing that people can better understand it now. I wonder how many people are now forever germaphobes after this year.

    Rutgers has announced that they will require all students to have the vaccine before returning for fall semester. This only applies to those who are taking on-campus classes, so all online students will not be required to get the vaccine. This new mandate makes Rutgers University the very first to require the vaccine for their students. They also said they will allow students to apply for medical and religious exemptions.

    What does everyone think of this? I'm sure many people will have a lot to say about it, but I think it's a great move for the time being.

    I'm hoping to put some solar panels on my home pretty soon. Trouble is I have a townhome and not really sure how to go about it. The first step in the process is to check with my HOA to make sure it's all well and good, but I noticed I have neighbors that have them, so I'm guessing it'll be fine. But now that I'm looking into it I'm not sure if the tech is affordable enough vs what you get out of it. I was hoping to get to a point were I'm actually producing energy instead of consuming it. I've seen many people make that possible with pretty similar setups. Does anyone use solar power? Specifically on a townhome?

    I've been getting out of the house quite a bit lately specifically with it in mind just to move my body around. The more you sit around the less your body is getting to do the things it needs to do to keep you healthy and in good shape. I recommend to go for a walk outside to get some sunshine atleast once a day.

    I actually saw a paper on this today. It's the pfizer vaccine that they are trying to make into pill form.

    It's amazing how fast we can change stuff once there's a working prototype or fully functioning final product. Once it's proven to work in one state it can be successfully changed to another extremely fast. I hadn't heard of the pill form of the vaccines yet but I wouldn't put it past the experts to be working on this.

    StarLord Wrote: I don't think it is. My wife drove to another state to get hers. As long as they have a steady supply - I think we should emphasize getting as many people vaccinated as possible. So I don't see anything wrong in you travelling to get it.
    Same here. I say go for it. If it were me I'd just make sure there's no issues with their quantity first. I don't know how you'd do that, but it's worth a try to make you feel better.

    The last time humans stepped foot on the moon was in December 1972. Since then we haven't really made any attempt to get back up there or do any more research at all. Sure we were able to collect a bunch of data and study the lunar surface quite a bit with Apollo 11, but that was almost 50 years ago now. What happened? I would think if we were able to do this in the early 70s then we'd easily be able to do it now. We have the manned mission coming up in a year or two now, but it's wild to me that we haven't gone back in so long. It's a shame we have the technology and know how but yet entire generation hasn't seen a manned mission yet.

    I don't think it's unethical at all. If they are letting everyone get the vaccine in that area without many regulations at all, then they're probably not running too low on it or they have plenty to go around. I say go for it.
