      Be happy and be well. Please be careful about Covid. Viral load matters for infection, spending hours in a house with people is a great way to get infected.

Oh FFS 🙄

People need to calm their tits already.

There are a bunch of students from The Far Side’s School for the Gifted branch in Florida who are protesting that gyms are not open. They’re doing squats and pushups on the sidewalk in Florida’s full sunshine and warmth. Hey, if they were in Pittsburgh, where the temp today is a balmy 43°F today, I could see where they might have reason to grumble for a few days. But it looks like paradise down there. All they need to do is schedule their low impact aerobics and toning classes in a park where they can spread out.

This must be a conspiracy to make Floridians look stupid.

Then there’s the coming showdown between Gov. Gretchen Witmer and the real conspiracy to whip up the rage of the ammosexuals to go rampaging through Lansing, Michigan with guns a-blazing. The “grassroots” group supposedly has 400,000 members.

Ok, fine. Go exercise your freedom to do whatever the hell you want. I think we established last week that protesters can invade the statehouse with their guns and dorky camo costumes. Those guys haven’t seen a boot camp in forever.

I can’t wait til they start watering the trees of Liberty with the blood of tyrants. Thanks to the ample warning and broadcasting their plans to the world, the battalions of extraordinarily well equipped, armored and trained police will make short work of taking them out. I mean, if it’s just a battle between which group has been itching to try out their arsenals on a hostile crowd, I’m going to give the edge to the officially blessed professionals with the real artillery, body armor and tactics.

It should be interesting to watch the legends in their own minds, gun totin’, QANON types finally see what they’re up against. Hopefully, they’ll all be scared s}#%less, say they made their point, declare victory and go home with fresh cases of Coronavirus.

There really is no other option. They don’t want to go there. No, they really don’t. It’s not going to be pretty. Better to just let their fantasies play out in their heads than actually see the Patriot Act in real life.

  1. Off topic: I had to have a filling replaced today (the old one was partly chipped off May 1, IIRC). The new one is expected to last several years.

    No, it wasn’t like this. 😛

    • Only several years?? Is this planned obsolescence on fillings? Mine usually last decades.

      • I think the dentist said at least 5-10 years. It’s a resin filling; he said an amalgam filling would not stay in. He said I might need a crown eventually, if the filling did not work. It’s always possible I misunderstood what he said.

        • Why didn’t he just build a composite filling? You know, bake it with a UV lamp until it’s as hard as concrete.

          • I didn’t know such a thing existed.

            It’s in, it seems to be working, and I don’t know enough to discuss the subject intelligently.

            I’m starting to be sorry I mentioned it. 🙄
