Hello again from Tinkletowne! I gotta say, I'm down with wearing a mask, if it'll stop your grandpa from blowing his rusty sheriff's badge apart on the bowl - not like I've got anything better to do! - but you wouldn't believe the number of decrepit old coots that go staggering and shuffling right under my nose outside te Tesco's, ignoring the five feet of clear sidewalk immediately adjacent. IDGAF, just saying, coof's not gonna scratch my magnificent dusky hog, but it might touch their shrivelled WW1 veteran peckers right up!

I try to phase backward through the bricks like muh favourite Marvel movies but it dun work.

Then again, some of these old-timers were at war with Literal Hitler² (that's "Literal Literal Hitler"). I guess they DGAF either, and who can blame them? Me old nan's neighbours got blown to pieces one night, and it made her viciously racist for all her days. 3:< I suppose I kinda hate China now. How do you eat a bat you sick motherless Alibaba fucks. Image

Just kidding, it's not the worst thing I ever heard. Bloke fucked a monkey, apparently.

Well chaps I'm going to pop off before Cyber Plod shows up to give me a right good talking to. Stay safe!

The US had 193,000 new cases in one day? That's a serious chain we got going.

I actually flew into the eye of the storm to spend Thanksgiving, the shittiest holiday ever, w/ my GF. Not going to even dream of seeing my mother. I have learned through a sobering facebook reply (not post) that a friend from my Tokyo days lost a parent to Covid. Shitty.

The attitude towards masks, shut downs, and all that shit largely depends on the area, although even parts of California are throwing caution to the wind and telling Newsome to fuck the fuck off. Apparently Santa Clara, which was killing it and got down to the orange tier, is on track to run out of ICU beds in less than 2 weeks. Meanwhile I have "friends" (ex-colleagues that wear MAGA hats and are all of about 26 years old) that state openly we have crippled the economy to give only a couple of years of enjoyment to the elderly or "people who have made bad life decisions". This guy lives in Utah, so yeah, not exactly reality. :-/

Meanwhile, the leader of the free world is conducting a fucking circus, bolstering the cult of personality he's already made.

If you're still interested in the excess mortality figures, there's a good link here : https://ourworldindata.org/excess-mortality-covid

This is the scary shit. CDC said US was at 300k excess mortality when the official count was 230k.

There was a post on the dataisbeautiful subreddit a couple weeks ago that was comparing Covid deaths to war deaths. I'm sure it's not the first/last.

While I in no way believe that a disease is the same thing as war, I was unsurprised to see that many people took issue not with the whole concept, but with the fact that Covid deaths are just old people or weak people and those deaths (and lives) were not meaningful, especially compared to young men in there 20's who can do battle.

Kind of makes me feel sick to my stomach.

As Covid ravages the 70+ demographic, I imagine a fair amount of those that died from it DID do battle... so we could argue about fucking video games on the internet.

As usual, our policy for "saving everyone" falls almost completely on the backs of the poor. Can't wait to see what Biden and Kerry cook up for climate change.

Of course, mentioning these realities is strictly verboten.
