He seems like a genuinely nice guy.... Someone I would love to simply sit down and have a beer with...

But his character doesn't believe in you.

Slaxl: Losing taste and smell doesn't really defy the descriptions since it's a covid symptom isn't it? Or was this before that was more widely known?


Wow, that's a pretty breathless headline just to have Parsons report that he had symptoms that were pretty well known in late March. Given the headline, I expected to read that he'd been really sick. Thankfully, it sounds like his symptoms weren't too bad.

Eh, what gets me overall are the people who claim it's "basically the same as the flu."

As a percentage of the population, the number of people who get full-blown, all-the-aymptoms flu is pretty low. I've had it, and holy shiat, it was awful. Actual flu isn't the same as a bad cold, it's in a class all by itself.

Make me want to give the anti-mask idiots 5 across their farking eyes for being so goddamn stupid.

He's an actor/artist who lost two of his primary senses for an extended period of time.  It's going to be a difficult sensation to articulate fully.  Sure, he can say "lost taste and smell", but that doesn't do a particularly good job of conveying the experience.

It's probably worse without the laugh track.

Trik: Been awhile since I watched BBT what's it called when Sheldon got sick, a Code Green?


Code "milky green".

With or without fever.

I hope he recovers.  I'm not a fan, but I wouldn't wish this on anyone.  And I'm still not over covid taking Adam Schlesinger.

I wanted him to play Mr. Rogers in the biopic.

JAGChem82: "knock knock knock COVID knock knock knock COVID knock knock knock COVID"

How did you miss the obvious tagline, subby?


Just resubmitted under this headline, it's not like they look for that kind of thing anymore. Two threads referencing in awful sitcom is par for the course these days.

Well, this happened in March, so apparently he's recovered and hitting the promotion trail for his new whatever.

peachpicker: I developed anosmia a handful of years ago as a result of a sinus infection, couldn't smell or taste a thing for several weeks. It's a pain in the ass, and fairly discouraging. When the act of eating is reduced solely to solely a textural experience, it's a real adjustment. Green beans, for example, become a rubbery nightmare...


Become?  I think lack of taste would improve green beans.

Great. Now there's 2 different ways to go to oblivion.


Well, when you die you will expel gas.
