previous commenters did; why single me out?
  3:30am
Dr Chill:

wait, i think i know why!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am

Because I'm in Australia, & stating facts that do not aply to you.

cuz youre a bitter lefty lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am
diciassette:

I am very interested in the concept of competence/incompetence. It seems to me that if one has simple and clear objectives it's much easier to define a criteria as to what competence is. Is the objective met? Is the objective in line with my concerns? Does it really matter who gets fucked over?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am

Chill. If that simple delusion brings you comfort in your ignorance, so be it.

A new mask mandate went into effect tonight in Los Angeles...everyone, vaccinated or not, has to wear masks indoors now, due to the Delta variant. And we just reopened a month ago. I am fully vaccinated and lefty, I think this is a ploy to get unvaccinated people to get doses. Yes, we need more people to get vaccinated to reach herd immunity but not when it means continued chaos.
  3:55am
Dr Chill:

Los Maskeles
  3:56am
Blasted:

And UK isn't doing great. Your vaccinated health secretary just tested positive.
  3:57am
Dr Chill:

big deal; he has hardly any symptoms, cuz he is fully vaxed
  3:58am

Are you okay with lots of unvaccinated people dying?
  3:58am

as is everyone in the UK

That might not be true for long. I haven't checked the statistics for the UK lately, but the unvaxxed make up around 99% of new cases and deaths in America. Again, I ask are you okay with lots of unvaxxed people dying? I hope for the best for everyone.

Good on ya!
  4:06am

Yes, it's great around 90% of people in the UK have gotten one dose! But we need people to get both doses for the vaccine to be effective so we can reach herd immunity. Only around 65% of people in the UK have gotten both doses.

Did he just say he was feeling FRENCH?

I think you guys have moved on to other subjects...
I have a cousin from Colombia, South America. She flew into Miami & got her jab(s) about six weeks ago. She has a fever and frequent coughing. She has now tested positive for the coronavirus. Just found out Friday night. Details are sketchy.

Is it 10 and 25? I feel like it's important to know the Factory numbers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am

Sorry to hear about your cousin, Ciggy. My best to her. The vaccines aren't perfect, unfortunately.
  4:48am

Sorry to hear that Ciggy. I hope she feels better soon. As for reading, I love to read but haven't been able to focus on reading much of any for the past year. Can't even remember what good articles I've read lately!

I know the feeling, Blasted. My usual fare is crime fiction. Big fan of Scots writer -- and former London Records creative director -- Alan Parks' books.

For some reason your mention of crime books made me think of James Ellroy's The Black Dahlia (based on a true story)...read that around 15 years ago and thought it was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am
Brian D:

Ellroy is one of my faves. I've read EVERYTHING by him. His shopping lists, FFS.
  4:58am
Blasted:

Cool, that's the only book of his I've read. I don't usually read crime fiction. Maybe I'll try something else by him.
