Results for covid was "not detected". My brother in law said that means 60-66% chance I do not have it.

Meanwhile, the fevers for the last few months are baffling my doctor. We both don't want to bother the infectious disease unit with my symptoms while a pandemic is going on. I was tested for a lot of things back in November (thyroid, etc) and that was negative so I'm to keep an eye on my fever spikes.

Thank you all for your concerns.

Trump won NC by 3.8 points.  7 points would be nearly an 11 point swing.

An 11 point swing coincides with the swing from McCrory 2012 to Cooper 2016...

And Obama won NC in 2008 by less than half a percent.

Seems feasible. Probably an outlier, though.

Biden doesn't need NC.  He flips Michigan, Pennsylvania and literally anything else and he wins.


Fark that. I want Biden to steamroll and humiliate that orange prick.

I once pulled a few tubes not long after starting a prescription, along with drinking a Guiness. Walked to the quicky-mart for smokes, came back, and...

Fell on the couch unable to move. I was conscious, completely lucid and actually had a pretty good conversation for the next few hours, but was completely unable to move. It was kinda scary.

Some of the beaches are already considered public parks.

I do agree some of these places are going to get creative.

Also, today at work my inventory of XL nitrile disposable gloves was running low.  The usual supplier is out.  I checked other sources including e-bay and they are really hard to find in something about 6-8 mil thick, box/100 or more for a reasonable price.  So, I called an off beat supplier that we don't usually source PPE from and boom they had twenty packs left at a great price.

20 boxes are shipping from Alabama.  2000 gloves, 1000 pair $250 or so plus shipping.

BDR459: TBC: Wine.

Today's terrifying experience: Had to go let a client in to the building and bring them to a provider's office. This client is familiar to me, and it's clear to me that he's in a rough place. Filthy, experiencing homelessness again, but doing what he needs to do to collect documentation so he can get his medical marijuana card. That's cool. *shrug* I'm just here to help. So I go let him in, wearing mask and gloves. We ride up together in the small elevator. He starts talking about "this virus everybody's so scared of." He tells me, "It's fine. It's really not that big of a deal, and the only people that die from it anyway are the ones who take ibuprofen. The ones who recover are the ones who didn't take ibuprofen. If you take ibuprofen when you have this, you get hypothermia and pneumonia at the same time, and that's what kills you." I asked him where he got this information, and he said, "This guy on the internet? On YouTube? He has a friend who's a medical doctor, and he's been studying this stuff."

Sooooo yeah. BBQ and wine. Silkwood shower. This is my evening.

That's simply terrifying.

/take care of yourself


Trying my best. I feel like a redshirt every time I have to go downstairs to let a client in. I love my clients, and I'm doing my best by them, but it really feels like I'm the only one in my office who's taking this seriously, but I might be getting through to my boss. Which is good, because the Relapse Prevention guy thinks he's cute by fake-coughing in my direction.

So yeah. Scalding hot shower, scrubbing with an italy towel so I remove a couple layers of skin while I'm in there, and every single precaution I've taken so far is feeling justified. Cuz goddamn.

My wife looking at the pie recipes I'm considering over my shoulder: "Cool, so it's a custard with a crust. Good luck!"

Me: "Awesome! That sounds both easy and yet easy to screw up royally! Fun!"

Other things I've learned: if a videogame has a unique pie in it (Undertale, butterscotch-cinnamon pie), there will be a hundred recipes for said pie online. None of them will have much in common with each other. At all. There also seems to be some debate as to whether or not "butterscotch" necessitates butterscotch chips to melt in, or a bunch of butter, brown sugar, and anywhere from 2 to 8 egg yolks in a recipe for a 9-inch pie pan.

Local news (I think) had a story on last night with some guy that thinks he had Covid back around Christmas because he had mild symptoms and his parents got sick afterwards.  So he got an antibody test which came back "Positive for Covid-19."

Occam's Razor says he had a regular coronavirus and the antibody test was a false positive.  But at least it filled 4 minutes of air time.

Meanwhile ... I really, really do not want to go to the hospital but the second dance with COVID here is starting to be a little tougher. Oh sure I have the hacking cough and the lung tightness and the spaciness and the slight difficulty breathing -- but had a temperature earlier. That was the "Go To Hospital Now!" command from the CDC programming but alas my brain glitched and decided I needed to stay around to pay the rent. Paying the rent requires me going to the bank and depositing a check and then returning to either write another check or use their new online portal. It was extremely fortunate I got that damned stimulus yesterday so I could do this -- in case i need to call 911 at night. it always gets worse at night. HOWEVER I have a secret weapon against all lung infections. Wasabi! A couple hits of this stuff and Harooomphabooble my nose is CLEAR! Also my eyes! Also my brain is on fire aiiieeeeee! Whew ... that should kill anything.

Auntie Cheesus: Spice Must Flow: Auntie Cheesus: Spice Must Flow: I'm guessing there are lots of folks from Elko looking forward to becoming the Lavoy Finecum of the Haircut Tantrum movement.

You mean Elko now has more than one motel, one mediocre coffee shop and the Chevy dealer these days?

When I left it had four brothels and the dive bar where I used to work. They even got a fancy picture show.

Did you know the toothbrush was invented in Elko?
If it was invented anywhere else they would've called it the teethbrush.

Yeah, we used to take the customer transport fleet from the Mustang over to the dealer in Elko for maintenance and that was where my dad would pick up his leased vehicles that were registered in Nevada.


I used to freelance for the Elko newspaper, until I moved in March. My article about the Silver Dollar closing, which opened a week before Prohibition ended, got picked up by Associated Press.

Not a bad little town, which I moved to at random when it got too expensive to live in Sonoma County. But three years was long enough there, and my opportunities are so much greater in Reno, even amid the Shutdown.

So, I recently moved from smallville Nevada to Reno (right before the Shutdown) and lots of folks (at the homeless shelter I'm stuck in) are saying, "Well, Las Vegas is 'talking about' opening, so why can't we?"

But the Facebook news group from Elko has been full of people who have been posting thing like, "There's no LAW telling us to stay inside, or keep our businesses closed - and they can't fine allof us!" A few days ago folks started posting, "Protesting does nothing, it's time to rebel." And today folks were posting a link about Michigan's pro-plague cosplayers, saying "Listen up Nevada!"

I'm guessing there are lots of folks from Elko looking forward to becoming the Lavoy Finecum of the Haircut Tantrum movement.

TBC: BDR459: TBC: Wine.

Today's terrifying experience: Had to go let a client in to the building and bring them to a provider's office. This client is familiar to me, and it's clear to me that he's in a rough place. Filthy, experiencing homelessness again, but doing what he needs to do to collect documentation so he can get his medical marijuana card. That's cool. *shrug* I'm just here to help. So I go let him in, wearing mask and gloves. We ride up together in the small elevator. He starts talking about "this virus everybody's so scared of." He tells me, "It's fine. It's really not that big of a deal, and the only people that die from it anyway are the ones who take ibuprofen. The ones who recover are the ones who didn't take ibuprofen. If you take ibuprofen when you have this, you get hypothermia and pneumonia at the same time, and that's what kills you." I asked him where he got this information, and he said, "This guy on the internet? On YouTube? He has a friend who's a medical doctor, and he's been studying this stuff."

Sooooo yeah. BBQ and wine. Silkwood shower. This is my evening.

That's simply terrifying.

/take care of yourself

Trying my best. I feel like a redshirt every time I have to go downstairs to let a client in. I love my clients, and I'm doing my best by them, but it really feels like I'm the only one in my office who's taking this seriously, but I might be getting through to my boss. Which is good, because the Relapse Prevention guy thinks he's cute by fake-coughing in my direction.

So yeah. Scalding hot shower, scrubbing with an italy towel so I remove a couple layers of skin while I'm in there, and every single precaution I've taken so far is feeling justified. Cuz goddamn.


The high level administrators at work aren't wearing masks.

I've begged for us to get masks.

There are apparently f*cking N95 masks available for the high level administrators who aren't wearing them but us peons who have to a) handle tons of equipment and b) travel between multiple sites can't get them.

Now cannabis isn't entirely illegal anymore but the fact remains. I've known one MAGAT mechanic that was not a drug users in his life. The other two dozen yes. Hell all of the mechanic shops around town are open as they are deemed essential -- get your car fixed and your meth or opiate fix too. So fark that guy.

Trump won NC by 3.8 points.  7 points would be nearly an 11 point swing.

An 11 point swing coincides with the swing from McCrory 2012 to Cooper 2016...

And Obama won NC in 2008 by less than half a percent.

Seems feasible. Probably an outlier, though.

Biden doesn't need NC.  He flips Michigan, Pennsylvania and literally anything else and he wins.

Fark that. I want Biden to steamroll and humiliate that orange prick.

On the credibility of the Biden accusation:
https://www.yahoo.com/news/why-im-ske​p​tical-reades-sexual-223755888.html

A take. A lawyerly take.

There's a number of items that seem counter to the narrative, or appear to be directly refutable. But this part seems to be the crux of the deniable mindset (not motive toward a false claim, that comes in the next paragraph):
'In the 1990s, Biden worked to pass the Violence Against Women Act. In 2017, on multiple occasions, Reade retweeted or "liked" praise for Biden and his work combating sexual assault. In the same year, Reade tweeted other compliments of Biden, including: "My old boss speaks truth. Listen." It is bizarre that Reade would publicly laud Biden for combating the very thing she would later accuse him of doing to her.'

It's one thing to avoid bringing up a painful subject, or even to say nice things about someone who had done something to you, but to directly praise someone for an action against you personally that would undermine that praise you yourself gave? If she had formally complained about Biden's behavior THEN, why would she care to protect his image in later years, to turn around and accuse him after? It's not the question of why women wait, or feel marginalized when exposing men in power... it's that if her story were true, there's no compulsory need to praise. It doesn't threaten her social standing to NOT praise Biden. There were many other candidates and/or liberal politicians to promote. In 2017, it wasn't that she needed to retweet Joe or never work in this town again.

I guess it's a believability thing. There's no actual evidence that can be submitted that prove or disprove Biden committed sexual assault. What's left is hashing out corroboration that complaints were made in '93, and how close they speak to assault.

I'm not sure.  I'm going to check with my safety manager tomorrow because latex would be a lot easier to source for general use.

However, for the shop I need more chemical resistance (nitrile=synthetic rubber) for the grease and brake clean, parts washing fluid, oils, and other hazards.


Also, that's why they are thicker than normal medical gloves.

Normal medical nitrile is probably 2-3 mil and the mechanics need 6-8 mil depending on preference.

It seems that while I was in quarantine all of the XL nitrile stuff was shut down or spoken for by homeland security.  And they grabbed the thick ones also because "whatever it takes".

When I was on Amazon.com today all of the nitrile gloves were on some sort of special hold for medical use only.

Dad's very expensive not-chemo drug arrived via UPS today.  Retail is almost what we paid for our car a few years ago.  But it does come with a free box of Immodium, for the diarrheal side effects, so it's got that going for it.

Trump won NC by 3.8 points.  7 points would be nearly an 11 point swing.

An 11 point swing coincides with the swing from McCrory 2012 to Cooper 2016...

And Obama won NC in 2008 by less than half a percent.

Seems feasible. Probably an outlier, though.

Biden doesn't need NC.  He flips Michigan, Pennsylvania and literally anything else and he wins.

Fark that. I want Biden to steamroll and humiliate that orange prick.

Today's terrifying experience: Had to go let a client in to the building and bring them to a provider's office. This client is familiar to me, and it's clear to me that he's in a rough place. Filthy, experiencing homelessness again, but doing what he needs to do to collect documentation so he can get his medical marijuana card. That's cool. *shrug* I'm just here to help. So I go let him in, wearing mask and gloves. We ride up together in the small elevator. He starts talking about "this virus everybody's so scared of." He tells me, "It's fine. It's really not that big of a deal, and the only people that die from it anyway are the ones who take ibuprofen. The ones who recover are the ones who didn't take ibuprofen. If you take ibuprofen when you have this, you get hypothermia and pneumonia at the same time, and that's what kills you." I asked him where he got this information, and he said, "This guy on the internet? On YouTube? He has a friend who's a medical doctor, and he's been studying this stuff."

Sooooo yeah. BBQ and wine. Silkwood shower. This is my evening.

That's simply terrifying.

/take care of yourself

Trying my best. I feel like a redshirt every time I have to go downstairs to let a client in. I love my clients, and I'm doing my best by them, but it really feels like I'm the only one in my office who's taking this seriously, but I might be getting through to my boss. Which is good, because the Relapse Prevention guy thinks he's cute by fake-coughing in my direction.

So yeah. Scalding hot shower, scrubbing with an italy towel so I remove a couple layers of skin while I'm in there, and every single precaution I've taken so far is feeling justified. Cuz goddamn.

I had someone recommend hdsupplysolutions.com (they split that off from Home Depot a number of years ago) for a light bulb during the Obama light bulb crisis.  They might have something.

Well, you can also look at napalonline, grainger.com, ebay, try mcmaster.com for small gloves. zoro.com isn't bad, harborfreight.com,

So far I've only had trouble with XL gloves through those.  But they have to be nitrile.  I've also looked at a couple places that supply stuff for people who service gas stations such as heinrich and JM ellsworth.

You could try people that supply oil field stuff!  So far I'm sticking to vendors we normally use.

JulieAzel626: California Governor Gavin Newsome ordered all Orange County beaches shutdown beginning tomorrow at noon. Original reports and leaked documents reported late Wednesday suggested all beaches in California will be closed.

This action has set off a standoff between various Orange County government officials and Newsome.

Huntington Beach held an emergency meeting Thursday to decide what actions they could take to "work around this order."



Are they allowing people to go in the water if they close the beach?

It's loosened up a bit here to allow walking/exercise on the beach if maintaining distance, but no sitting around or sunbathing. But from the get-go they've allowed folks to get in the water to swim, surf, etc.

Fun Fact: Thanks to a forward-thinking state supreme court chief justice in the 1970s, beaches in Hawai'i are considered public land up to the high tide line. So there are no private beaches, even if the only way to get to the beach without crossing private property is from the water.

I've begged for us to get masks.

There are apparently f*cking N95 masks available for the high level administrators who aren't wearing them but us peons who have to a) handle tons of equipment and b) travel b ...

Me and one other person are the only people in the office who wear masks. We both have only ho-made, non-filter, fabric masks. Can't find gloves in town, work is providing a box of vinyl XL gloves, but I have tiny hands. No smalls to be had. I left a message at my fave local tattoo shop hoping desperately that they'll actually listen to their voicemails, asking if I can buy some gloves from them, cuz I know they have nitrile gloves and likely more than one size. There's no hope for N95 masks for us, though I did ask my boss if maybe she should talk to the company that does our UA processing if maybe they can hook us up with gloves that are sized correctly.

Most of my clients don't wear masks. Many of them couldn't access them anyway, but there are a number of them (like the gentleman I mentioned in my previous post) who wouldn't wear them if they did have access.


Ho's gotta do what the can to make money in this economy.

I know lots of Trumpers in Michigan. I know lots of gun owners in Michigan. I know lots of people upset w/ the govt in Michigan. Not one would bring a gun to the statehouse. GOP leaders would be wise to renounce this fringe lest they lose every suburban mom from Oakland to Kent.


But, they won't

Today's terrifying experience: Had to go let a client in to the building and bring them to a provider's office. This client is familiar to me, and it's clear to me that he's in a rough place. Filthy, experiencing homelessness again, but doing what he needs to do to collect documentation so he can get his medical marijuana card. That's cool. *shrug* I'm just here to help. So I go let him in, wearing mask and gloves. We ride up together in the small elevator. He starts talking about "this virus everybody's so scared of." He tells me, "It's fine. It's really not that big of a deal, and the only people that die from it anyway are the ones who take ibuprofen. The ones who recover are the ones who didn't take ibuprofen. If you take ibuprofen when you have this, you get hypothermia and pneumonia at the same time, and that's what kills you." I asked him where he got this information, and he said, "This guy on the internet? On YouTube? He has a friend who's a medical doctor, and he's been studying this stuff."

Sooooo yeah. BBQ and wine. Silkwood shower. This is my evening.

That's simply terrifying.

/take care of yourself

Trying my best. I feel like a redshirt every time I have to go downstairs to let a client in. I love my clients, and I'm doing my best by them, but it really feels like I'm the only one in my office who's taking this seriously, but I might be getting through to my boss. Which is good, because the Relapse Prevention guy thinks he's cute by fake-coughing in my direction.

So yeah. Scalding hot shower, scrubbing with an italy towel so I remove a couple layers of skin while I'm in there, and every single precaution I've taken so far is feeling justified. Cuz goddamn.


Relapse Prevention guy would get punched in the face. *Don't do this.*

Good on you for taking care of your clients

*I don't give good advice right now. Number or farks to give is nil.

I dunno, I figure good riot music would make for a good theme.  Which almost means endless hair metal.

I am so pissed off that asshat has a pot leaf on his clothes. It's very well known but not reported that most MAGATs are illegal drug users. Now cannabis isn't entirely illegal anymore but the fact remains. I've known one MAGAT mechanic that was not a drug users in his life. The other two dozen yes. Hell all of the mechanic shops around town are open as they are deemed essential -- get your car fixed and your meth or opiate fix too. So fark that guy.

/ May his motorcycle shop explode from a failed hash oil venture.

It's Michigan.  Recreational use is fine in Michigan.

Has been for a long time too. Made it to Ann Arbor in the late 80s for a legalization protest. That was a blast.

/ Funky drive back through Wisconsin to Minnesota.


No, rec use in Michigan started with a vote in 2018.  It's just that Ann Arbor has always had a Hash Bash and Hemp Rally, because Ann Arbor is a whore that needs its drugs.

Yes, this is a thing, lay on your stomach, not your back and not sitting up in a chair if you're having some difficulty breathing.  If you start being confused, your lips and under fingernails are blue, get on the phone to the doctor or hospital because you're probably gonna need some O2 and medical care.

What show/movie is below one from. I've seen films from it before.


I know I've seen that glasses guy. Though I did have to do a double take; there's a weird form of Poe's Law afoot where it's increasingly hard to tell people making fun of Trumpers from the actual Trumpers.

They HATE Linux and I can't use their "Streaming" dreck on that machine. I must have Windows or Apple's OS ( whatever it is and I do not care ). No exceptions! I was having no problems until just a moment ago. WTF?

CrazyCurt: Meanwhile ... I really, really do not want to go to the hospital but the second dance with COVID here is starting to be a little tougher. Oh sure I have the hacking cough and the lung tightness and the spaciness and the slight difficulty breathing -- but had a temperature earlier. That was the "Go To Hospital Now!" command from the CDC programming but alas my brain glitched and decided I needed to stay around to pay the rent. Paying the rent requires me going to the bank and depositing a check and then returning to either write another check or use their new online portal. It was extremely fortunate I got that damned stimulus yesterday so I could do this -- in case i need to call 911 at night. it always gets worse at night. HOWEVER I have a secret weapon against all lung infections. Wasabi! A couple hits of this stuff and Harooomphabooble my nose is CLEAR! Also my eyes! Also my brain is on fire aiiieeeeee! Whew ... that should kill anything.

/ Besides me.
// knowing my luck I'll go to the hospital tonight and end up with SJF griping about the hospital food :)

Mycroft_Holmes_IV: Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Wow the Biden queue spammers have been going all day today.  Already multiple submissions have been completely scrubbed from the queue. At least 6 by my count.

I am leaning even further towards thinking the whole story is manufactured BS being pushed by shady people. Too much desperation behind it all.

It's finally making enough noise that NBC Nightly News had to give it 2 minutes.  Still sounds like BS.


Yeah, they are just acknowledging it's existence.....

Fox News had it as its front page story most of the last few days.

Good afternoon, fellow misfits.

I was reading up on warts and learned that they are caused by HPV. I'm an old dude so didn't get the HPV vaccine that is all the rage among teenagers these days. I wonder if it would do any good for a skin wart.
