duh, until most have a vaccine in person instruction is stupid because we chose bars and restaurants over schools.

It looks all red to me, but if there is a green spot around plutonium don't let dotard see it or he'll think about nuking the whole country, starting with Cali and NY

I would totally watch some PPE related "Adventures with Bill" vids. And frankly, a Covid Special episode would probably have great one-liners about shiat like TP shortages and pre-existing conditions.

Hopefully easier to suss out than the state's red/green/Xmas chile fishing regulations

Plutonium - ain't that the area where the giant ants and spiders and shiat terrorized small towns in the 50's?

Marty, I'm going to 2020 to stock up on plutonium. It is hard to come by in 1985 but will become available in every drugstore to prevent covid.

One county there is shaped like an upside down bird finger.

They're going to lock down the whole state?

So, I guess the governor is planning a big social event without masks, since that seems to be the pattern with Democrat politicians who announces major lockdowns...

That green chile double cheesburger I had a few years ago at a Bernalillo McDonalds of all places tasted way better than it should have.

It was carved out of parts of other counties.

New Mexico had 9 original counties from when it was a territory, and other counties were created from all or parts of those counties. There are lots of weird geographic features that make for odd boundaries, but since the state is mostly Santa Fe and Albuquerque as the population center, the rest is a God-forsaken wasteland in the desert.

Los Alamos county was created in the 1940s from parts of two counties, and was administered by the federal government as part of the Manhattan Project. Eventually it was returned to the state (with the exception of federal properties) to where it's a county of equal status with the rest of the counties.

Because of the high concentration of educated people.

She will probably get her hair done, at least.

Toward the beginning of the pandemic she used the Riot Act to lock down Gallup: https://cv.nmhealth.org/2020/​05/01/gov​ernor-authorizes-gallup-lockdown/

Yeah, here in ABQ the health care system is overwhelmed. One of my kids has test results pending but she's not showing much in the way of symptoms since Wed.

This effect is why rich people have a rural vacation home and a city home.

The schedule is to leave the city at the beginning of the pandemic.  When the rural part catches up and overruns the scare resources, move back to town.

Not in this formula is when the rural sick also come to overwhelm the city hospitals with their guns.

Just two colors? In CO, they added a color above red recently just to avoid locking down everything.

It's red to yellow to green in New Mexico.

I think some of it is for rural counties to take responsibility for their numbers and stop biatching and moaning that the mean lady governor is punishing them for a city folks disease. (Mostly i mean the eastern and southern rural counties-the Texas-inspired counties.)

I have full faith in their ability to create a persecution complex, but I like it in theory.

The persecution complex started in March with the first shutdown, even though the first to die from it in New Mexico lived in Artesia and got it from a doctor in Roswell who traveled to New York without quarantining.

I call that area west west-Texas. I work with a guy from Roswell that was annoyed by the Texas reference. He is an unrepentant asshole (he likes "joke" coughing on people lately, or using his hand when he "forgets" his mask, so funny!), so I was glad to observe that it was disparaging even to such a person.

The county with all the scientists understands science.

They also know to stay indoors when told that there is massive contamination outside.

Viruses and bacteria are actually, in general, extremely resistant to radiation compared to humans.

The means by which high energy (meaning anything with a wavelength of about 280nm or shorter) radiation kills viruses is usually by the "single critical hit," in which it cleaves a C-C bond in their DNA/RNA, usually creating an excited local state that turns into a molecule that polymerases can't read past.

The thing in, in a virus or bacterium, the ray has either 100nm or a few um of path length in which to make the fatal hit. In a human, it has somewhere between 10s to 100s of cm.

So e.g. tests have found that ssRNA viruses like sars-cov-2 will remain over 90% "alive" (infectious) even after exposure to 10000 Sieverts of radiation. Which is about 1000x the fatal human dose, and enough to break most non-hardened semiconductor devices.
