Very sad day for me today.

I just got back from the vet, I had to put my 17 year old orange tabby, Morris, to sleep. Iíve had him since I was 21 years old and heís been through everything with me. He slept on my bed every night and I donít know what Iím gonna do without him. Canít stop crying. RIP Morris, I love you and say hi to Emily, Natalie, Smokey and Tiger for me.

Question about Vermont

Why is it so blue when itís overwhelmingly rural? Almost all other rural states/areas are extremely red. What are the factors that contribute to the politics there?

Anyone here ever have any "paranormal" experiences?

Iím generally a skeptic but also open-minded about the spiritual world. About five years ago, I was staying in a hotel in Gallup, New Mexico and I had gone to sleep for the night. All of the sudden, I woke and there was a lady standing in front of my bed, clear as day. I initially thought she had broken in or went to the wrong room or something. But after about ten seconds, she vanished into thin air! I donít know if it was sleep paralysis or a waking dream or a genuine spirit but I was freaked out for the rest of the night.

Any of you have any experiences?

Today's news makes it clear that we must increase our numbers in the Senate.

Itíll be tough in an off year to gain Senators but itís what we must do to make people like Manchin (and Sinema) irrelevant.

Well, I finally caught COVID.

Not sure where I picked it up. Iím vaxxed and boosted and religiously wear a mask so Iím not quite sure how I got it. Iím nervous because I have many co-morbidities including cystic fibrosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, and apple-shape obesity.

Does anyone here who has had COVID have any advice as to how to minimize symptoms and/or increase comfort? Iím going to get the anti-body infusion later today.

Any chemists here, amateur or otherwise?

I need to make a liter of 7% hypertonic saline. Does anyone happen to know the recipe for such a mixture? How much salt specifically? Many thanks.

What streaming services, if any, do you have?

I have way too many. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus, Peacock, and HBO Max. I got rid of cable and like it better this way.

DC statehood requires constitutional amendment?

On another post it was said that in order for Washington D.C. to achieve statehood, it would require a constitutional amendment. Is this true? I hadnít heard that before.
