What is going on in Georgia right now is an utter shitshow. I have information from old friends that a hospital south of Atlanta is not testing patients who may or may not have COVID-19 for strep or influenza to rule those out. They are just being told to quarantine. That hospital is setting up temporary shelters and Read more

I had hoped when I heard Falwell was reopening LU that I was being trolled. These covidiots are going to get a lot of people killed

I got a little irritated at work. My boss told me to take an experimental approach that I had been taking and he had told me to stop. He admonished me to think about what I was trying to do. >:( Read more

Underreported deaths is disappointing af. On Worldometer deaths were lower on the 26th than the 25th. The number went up as the day progressed ( not unexpected) but the growth rate was stymied. I was thinking that was great news.

Re: changed comics. The Sailor Moon section was hilarious and exactly the stupidity I expect from Americans editing foreign films for kids.

Our slope in increasing deaths/day is higher than countries who have already maxed out their critical care capacity. We have barely started triage in our worst areas like they are in Italy and Spain and we are still managing a higher log scale slope. Read more

Dan Patrick is a shitstain. He became Lt Governor by running against this hard core conservative, party line Republican named Dewhurst and won in a landslide. Their official policy positions were all but identical, but Dewhurst was not openly racist, homophobic or sexist enough for Texas Republicans. He then proceeded Read more

The thing is, I don’t want to move. But I feel that since they don’t have to screen me or offer me bonuses that they should just offer me the rate they are offering new tenants. But I know that isn’t how it works.

Apartments sent me terms of lease renewal which are less generous than those offered new tenants. I’ll start shopping because I think this is going to be a buyer’s market.

I am wondering if the lawless hotels AirBnBs start closing if rents will drop. Comparable units to mine in this complex just dropped $50/month over the weekend. The disadvantage is I will have to move myself rather than hire movers for reasons that should be obvious. Read more

Oh, and remember when, after witnessing some army fuckwits in online game chat, I said it seemed military personnel were going to be killing lots of people? The counts of confimed cases in San Antonio did not include the Join Air Base at San Antonio. Here is a picture of airmen finishing basic training yesterday,

The main problems with lockdown are (1) getting food because there is no way I will have enough on hand for lockdown duration and (2) the animal colony at work. It needs continuous upkeep. Everything else I can handle just fine.
