Re: Orange is the new President

Well, Honda is quitting Formula One. I guess that is the big news for the day.

Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

What the fuck, people? Joe Biden was in Congress when I was in grade school. You think that old, addled moron is going to make anything better? I will once again not vote. Fuck these politicians. And fuck you too if you take this shit too seriously.

Caster is not female. She is intersex. Caster has a Y chromosome. That's the way the ball bounces very infrequently.

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

It's about the dog. I have enough experience with single, childless women in her age range to know this. That dog occupies a place in her mind that normally is filled by a child. If a stranger in a park offers her child a treat, in this crazy day and age, she gets upset. Don't fuck with her dog or e...

Re: Random covid-19 observations

There's 10 million people in the county, more in the metro area. Several hundred thousand infections is still less than 10% of the county. The lockdown has worked. Whether it's worth the cost involves a value judgment about tradeoffs, but if this thing is as transmissible as it seems then I am pret...

No. They are scared shitless of going broke if they burn a little cheap gasoline. We allowed our incompetent political class to crater our ec...

We were at the park playing with the boys today and an NHS nurse walking her dog yelled at us (and presumably others) to go home.

So I don't know if my mail carrier is quarantined, if the USPS is in a slowdown or on strike or something (you'd think that would be big news even with the virus coverage), or what, but we have not gotten any mail in the last 3 days.
