    Thanks. I was already struggling to come to terms with it, but now I'm not even gonna get to do anything fun to distract myself. Just my luck.

      Aye. You just can't predict pandemics, Suzyn.

      I don't know how the numbers stack up today but I believe about 5 years ago, the USA had roughly 29 hospital beds per 10,000 population. South Korea had about 115.

        Happy 40th, Jenn!

        I got a PSVR headset for Christmas. Feel like virtual tourism could be a nice stopgap. Was planning on finally getting to Japan this year, but either it isn't going to happen at all, or it'll be super-cheap and they'll treat me like a foreign dignitary when I arrive. And I hate attention, so . . .

        Be seeing you,

          You glossed over a presidential address as “whatever” and get upset when somebody points out the flaw in that logic? Your indignation is misplaced, IMHO.

              So the Tom Hanks story that I shared earlier was satire. Apparently it originated with Australia's version of The Onion. Bummer. That was the only thing to make me smile today.

                      I think there might be virtually no one alive who has anything close to this. I think the Spanish Flu was kind of similar but that was over 100 years ago.

                          So Trump ordered that test kits not be produced in order to suppress the number of people with the virus to boost his chances at reelection.

                          I’d say this blows past the level of impeachable.

                          Make the GOP own this all over again. Fire it back up, House Democrats.

                            My son was supposed to have his first Little League baseball game tonight. He's only ever played tee ball. We just got the email that Little League has suspended all activity nationwide until further notice. Because of conflicts with soccer and that being his favorite sport, he may never get to play in a baseball game. This season was possibly his only chance. It's minor in the overall scheme of things, but we're pretty sad.

                                Just waiting for school to be cancelled for at least 2 weeks. Thats giving me more anxiety than the virus itself.
