Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

This is also not great news, though not particularly surprising: Hong Kong appeared to have the coronavirus under control, then it let its guard down But this latest lesson may be a bitter pill to swallow, as it indicates that quarantines and social distancing must continue well beyond the initial w...

Re: Joys in the time of Quarantine

Oh and we're watching Julia Childs' The French Chef. It's a lot of basic stuff most people already know yet every epsidode has some new little thing we learn.

(BTW, regarding the great french onion soup cheese controversy, she put swiss and parmagian on her french onion soup.)

Re: Joys in the time of Quarantine

Cleaning my room. Getting the garden cleaned up, feels like a moment when growing our own food is going to be more important than just a hobby. Going down youtube rabbit holes guilt free. I mean I would not normally spend an afternoon watching Buckethead videos, yet here we are. After another day or...

Re: Thar's Silicon In Them Thar Hills - Westworld w/ spoilers

The whole "break the simulation" thing by making the computer perform an illogical operation was already old by the time Star Trek TOS's run ended. To be sure there are quite a few too many "oh c'mon" moments, but I'm enjoying it anyway. It *looks* great if nothing else. Also, Game of Thrones World!...

Re: This is how you get guillotines

I hope Rand Paul fully recovers. But how did he get a test without symptoms or contacts with a known carrier “out of an abundance of caution” while people with full blown symptoms are pleading for them? No shit.

Re: Twitter!

Calling it the "Chinese Virus" is absolutely appropriate. This thing is wreaking havoc upon the world because of the monstrous behavior of the Chinese government . And not the Chinese people, much less Koreans or Japanese who live in the US, who also are catching the vitriol. Damnit Warren don't ma...

Re: Twitter!

Naturally, Muphry's law strikes! Certainly the virus doesn't care what we call it, and as long as people know what they're talking about it doesn't really matter. For the layperson, the pedantry around it is absurd. OTOH, I have Asian cow-orkers who have been yelled at in public and reduced to tears...

Re: This is how you get guillotines

IMO, the fact that they sold stock isn't nearly as bad as the fact that they lied and downplayed a potentially deadly virus to uphold their stock value before doing so. I agree. Burr's crime isn't selling, Burr's crime was sounding the alarm only to a small group of rich connected constituents, kno...

TBF nobody under 50 watches Fox News, so they're just playing to their audience.

You keep being you, Fox News. They take the same chart everyone else has and manages to find and trumpet the least important thing about it.
