If that is even remotely close to being true, I'd be very happy for him and I'd be willing to stop plugging a Patreon page. Based on what I've read about what ads pay, it would be somewhat surprising, but not beyond what is possible.

Yeah, it seems unlikely that he makes anything close to that, which is why I keep bringing up Patreon. Beam

Relax. Have faith.
Faith doesn't pay the mortgage or put food on the table. That said, if Blue were really hurting, I'm sure he would do a Patreon to keep the site afloat.

A case where people's beliefs quite literally kill others.

Not unlike the Spanish Inquisition.

Precisely like that.

I'm pretty sure he's been resisting that temptation for going on like 6 years now.

Whatever you do, however you do it, we appreciate it!

And I'm with RedEye9, bring back T-shirts. Or Patreon or something to let us show our appreciation!

We, on the committee to bring back blues t-shirts approve of these changes.

T-shirts make great Patreon level gifts too.

10. Interesting article about the immunotherapy tablets Apr 9, 2019, 13:35 Creston
 
But it doesn't mention how often you have to take those tablets, or how much they cost? Is that a continual thing, or do you eventually come to a point where you can stop using the tablets and you're still immune?

A bottle of anti-histamine costs like 30 bucks for 500 tablets. Kinda hard to beat.

I'm in for 2 shirts plus a $5 month patreon or is it a better deal to do a one time patreon $60 dollar payment after cc fees, taxes and patreon charges.
Inquiring minds and all that...

Town admits 'a poor decision was made' after baseball field set on fire to 'dry' it more quickly.

Ok, did anyone read that and not automatically assume it was some state in the south? Well done Connenticut for an outstanding 'Hold my beer' play of the year.

too bad they euthanized that python, i'm sure someone out there would have had the tank and ability to care for it. maybe not for the 74 eggs though... that's a lot of hatchlings.
...and now i have the Zerg theme stuck in my head
