What if we find out being hammered all the time is the only way to prevent infection?

cleek: stay tuned for my new soon-to-be best-seller, Darwin Shrugged


Would it be just as stupid as Ayan Rand?

Synopsis: Libertarian internet troll and I.T. desk jockey, John Gulp, works from home at full pay. He laughs at the rubes who refuse to stay home during a pandemic.

He orders all his food from Grub hub and the local supermarket, laughing that those idiots who prepared his food for money, like some ancient caveman. He enjoys the electricity those idiots at the power company supply him through hundreds of thousands of miles of copper ad labor for money. What doofuses.

He orders all his fancy toys and gadgets from fellow Mega Genius and part-time dragon hoarder, Jeff Bezsos. Who employed an army of barely above market value slaves who can't afford rent and work 12 hour days in his many warehouses.

One day John Gulp looks out his window to see a caravan of wandering homeless people evicted from thier houses. He pulls out his Walmart megaphone and yells at them from the window "stop spreading plague you poors, go back to your homes!". They answer back "but I haven't had a job for 6 months!" some shout! Others cry "I'm on my way to work on foot, for I missed my car payment from my second job getting canceled."

John Gulp, in his infinite I.Q. has a gotcha question just for them. "But, haha, I saw on the news, just this morn! I read a headline that everyone in London, England and Miami, Florida are partying it up. You are all a bunch of MAGA fools!"

One shouted back "Wouldn't it be physically impossible to fit 2 million people into every pub and bar in either city?". But too late, John went back to his EZ-Boy XXXL reclining computer chair and had closed the window and was reaching to his tub of Jerguns.

Once Lord Darwin, winner of internet arguments has killed all the proles, ot would be him and his fellow I.T. professionals to rebuild society. An army of robots would do all the farming, infrastructure and manufacturing. It will be a Utopia.

Now on sale on Amazon. $35 hardback, $10.99 U.S. $12.79 Can. paperback.

Prank Call of Cthulhu:

Jeebus Saves: Says the guy who shiats his pants at the sight of someone not wearing a mask.

Right. The person advocating the use of safety equipment is the one who is shiatting his pants, not the milquetoast who is going to pass out because he just feels like he can't bweathe wif the big mean mask on. You plague rats are pathetic.


Do you wear a helmet at all times?  Wait, sorry.  You probably do.  But you keep wearing that mask while you order a pound of ham at the deli.  Keep thinking you're saving the world.  You are totally making a difference.

OgreMagi: I think people are just getting stir crazy.  Everyone's been cooped up in their homes with little interaction with the real world for so long that they're becoming more willing to take chances just for the opportunity to do something.

That's not even taking into account all the people who've been unable to work and have burned through whatever savings they might have had.

StoPPeRmobile: Just kidding. Wear your mask to demonstrate your compliance and submission. Buy Chinese-made widgets for some dopamine and strengthening of china's economy and military might. The only way for everyone to be safe from something that affects a tiny portion of the population is to enable our "future" overlords, not question our orders, and submit with absolute compliance.


do you feel the same about shirts?

I wonder if this line of reasoning can be used so that women can walk around topless like men.

That sounds like my kind of weather. Depending on the time of year, both are shorts weather.

when you get used to 0 to 25 degree degree F for a month or two, 40's feel warm enough for shorts

42 degrees F right now outside. Windows open. The breeze is nice.

/my rigged up 2nd filter (wet rag on the output) on my shopvac blew out as i was cleaning up durrock debris after cutting/fitting the last bits of my living room. Dry concrete dust went everywhere. Wife is out. I really really hope most of it clears before she comes back.


I hope the couch is clean if not.

Almost -- Londoners decide drinking and partying is more important than YOU living. Most morons seem to assume that THEY THEMSELVES will be perfectly fine, and don't give a rat's arse if their poor choices puts OTHERS at risk....

Which is exactly the same reason the US has such atrocious numbers, "mah freedumbs!" trump your right to life.

Animatronik: If you feel like partying or protesting, google a few stories about ectremely fit people 25 to 35 who either died or wound up feeble and sick months after getting infected.

That'll sober you up right quick.


And if you google it, you'll only find a few stories.  It's no wonder a bunch of fat, old farkers who drink too much and think exercise is something douche bags do are so worried.

Somebody call Alanis Morisette.

I'd do it as it is a local call, but I am too lazy to look up her phone number. I wonder if she sold that apartment yet? It was quite nice. Full of chinoiserie, with three or four stories so she could have high ceilings in the entertaining rooms.
