Just what we needed!
COVID-19, that new tick-borne thing, Y pestis outbreaks ...

hmmm, so one major event can trigger many, many, many more.  Good thing that was for sure taken into consideration ever.

I just love dangerous diseases with an ironic sense of humor.

My USMC (Marine "Core" to some of you Farkers who have been around a while!) recruiter did two tours in Vietnam, served in Beirut (among other places), and spent more than a few years with various Marine Detachments. He said the only soldiers he never would have wanted to face were those of the French Foreign Legion, whom he met on more than a few occasions.

Just wait until COVID mutates such that it can be borne by mosquitoes.

I wondered what Taika Waititi was up to since he left home.

I feel like there should be a "My name is legion, for we are many" joke somewhere in here but I can't seem to put together something good.

I've been imagining these weird and dangerous diseases being like those animals in a shelter, escaping and unlocking the cages of the other's so they can all run amok.
How are these things getting loose? 🤔

I haven't gone to look for any yet, but I figure I may as well down a bottle of MD 2020 before the year is done. If I have to live this dumpster fire of a year, I may as well feel the burn just a little.

If you're serious it was probably mars, but I know better than to try and give you information. Look something up.

...Is one of the things I'd like to write someday from my star destroyer. I don't know. It's all I could glean from Sky Map. I suppose I could go outside an actually look at it... But... That just stinks of effort. I'll take my chances.

Nah. We've merely become a feast for her littlest creations. I know. Such a comfort as we're choking to death on our own mucus. But you know. Gotta go forth, be fruitful and multiply and all that sort of stuff.

Office was closed for a while, and they didn't run the water that had been sitting in the pipes for months out of the faucets before they let people back in. Pretty simple. Also pretty dumb

Remember when the CDC was actually about preventing outbreaks? Pepperidge Farm remembers vaguely, since the neurological aftereffect of the 'rona lingers and lingers.

" CDC offices close due to presence of legionella "

And if they get any closer, somebody's gonna need a condom.

It happens. It really likes growing on heat exchangers like in water source heat pump systems or chiller systems.

They are not maintained and cleaned, you get some weird stuff.

MD is a lot like drinking a bottom-shelf wine cooler. It's tolerable, but I also recall throwing up an entire bottle of the blue stuff into a bag of Doritos once.

And I was thoughtful enough to send out a warning text to the home crew to avoid the Cool Ranch, so no party foul.

If only they could have easily found some guidance on how to open buildings that have been closed for a long time.
