In three days will be unemployed and in a ten days I'll be leaving my state and going to grad school. Classes start in four weeks. I have a place to live, one bed one bath, with a nice balcony facing east which should be good for plants.

It's all happening so fast I'm so not ready but I'm going to have to make it work. That's the story of my life so far and I'm just going to keep winging it until I have a job post-grad school and can like relax or something.

I mean there are some incredible whole concerts out there. Queen at Wembley. The Band's The Last Waltz, Allman Bros. Live at Fillmore 1969. One More From the Road is legendary, but damn there are a lot to pick from. That rendition of Tuesday's Gone will always be the best though.

Did person with known prolonged exposure ultimately test positive? If not, you'd be a contact of a contact through that chain of transmission and that wouldn't count as confirmed contact and we'd look elsewhere for exposures. I also wouldn't be so quick to jump on the blaming of JnJ versus Moderna when you could have had exposure elsewhere. But glad to hear you're improving and glad you enjoyed the birds!

Eh. Case counts are super low right now so percentages get artificially high. The change on 10 to 11 is a 10% increase but 1000 to 1080 is only 8%. I'd take the 10% change there every day. Thing are going up, without question. But sometimes it can be better to look at raw numbers over percents. A lot of epidemiologists use cases/100,000 in the US or cases per 1,00,000 elsewhere as it gives a more accurate representation of things.

With Biz Markie no longer around, I've been on an old school rap/hip-hop kick.

There's undoubtedly romanticizing of the past, but the parts about the internet being built to sow discord and anger I think hold true. And I think it's valuable to think about why we act the way we do online and make a conscious effort to just be better to others online. There's a lot of negativity online, but us as individuals don't need to add to that.

Also the news story is incredible. The blurring of the cesspool of 4chan is awesome. Reminds me of "who is this hacker 4chan?" from a few years back.

If you got like 5 notifications for that sorry, that's what I get for using Amtrak wifi

Great! Glad everything is coming along. A lot of people come and go in waves of activity, but we normally don't get newbies back if they leave.

Lol "fake boujee" -- we're not kidding ourselves. There's literally a white trash TV show (excellent watch btw if you can) in which the costume designer went to local Wawa stores and took pics of people to use.

Good to see you back though! Sorry that the badging for chat feature didn't work. Hoping you stick around, you're good company, even if you are under the false impression anywhere is better than Wawa, because, and I cannot express this fact enough, Wawa is undeniably the best convenience store, except some weird place I've never been.

Also, I've never seen a fan-made Sheetz song...
