COVID-19

We're merging the two engineering locations back together sometime this month, with the addition of plexiglass shields to separate the two desks on the long end of our dogbone setup and a new air filtration system. The Varsity stayed in the mezzanine office while the JV team had to setup desks in ou...

My wife didn't regain the workforce after taking the stimmy and unemployment funds. But she's in school again, about to graduate, and has been offered two positions in her field. So in a way she is kind of that unicorn who did take the pandemic to improve her station. That said, the only reason it ...

927328 Out of three stimuli I received somewhere around $15k total. Do you believe this to be "the norm"? No, I was just providing a number to go by (and I've been corrected that it was actually closer to $18k). Besides I don't know anyone who would consider that enough to live off of for very long...

This is why I think the stimmy check argument is mostly stupid. There's not enough money to make it a month if you're a family, unless you're living free on rent and spacing out that food rations with 99 cent ramen noodles all the time. I just don't think the money offered gets you far without a jo...

Creepy, not sure on the sexist part. Somebody was trying for photography style points I think rather than capturing the people themselves.

There is an inordinate amount of vaccine hesitancy in the African American community, because of historical malpractice. I get that. Let me rephrase that: 5 months ago I got that, but I do not get that now. Tens of millions of people have gotten the vaccine(s) at this point, do you really think tha...

There is an interesting transition happening from being cautious to just being a big dumb chump that wants to remind the teacher to give everyone homework. An...

COVID-19

Our son is out of COVID quarantine and can re-join society. Pretty uneventful week minus working and watching him at the same time. No major known issues, and didn't seem to bother him at all. Hopefully there's nothing down the line that gets discovered.
Great to hear!

What’s the deal with Rodgers? He doesn’t like what the team is up to or he’s done living in a bottom rung part of earth? I think that Schefter bombshell was purposely timed by Rodgers to try and pressure the Packers to draft on offense. Clearly, that strategy failed. Apparently this take was close....

Maybe. It seems that schools and children were a large source of spread in Michigan due to the new variant. I wonder if we didn't see much spread amongst children because the majority of the schools were closed or in hybrid model. Now that we're opening up more, kids are playing a role in the sprea...

honestly I feel like he's being a diva. I think he's upset that they drafted Love, which is, you know, the same exact thing that happened with Favre and him way back when Right, and he answered with an MVP. It's Garrapalo in NE all over. I just proved that I'm still a BAMF, so send this numpty (Lov...

I have not thought about when it'll be appropriate to vaccinate the kids. We're still in this land of kids don't spread it as well as adults and aren't as effected by it, so we'll probably be later adopters than we were with ourselves. If they were teenagers I'd probably be pushing for it, but at 7 ...

They must really think they’re getting Rodgers to pass on Fields there, or else we’ll have to put MiMH on suicide watch.

Meanwhile, what seems the most interesting to me is that there's not so much as a trailer in the infield, doing it Saturday ni...

If the 49ers traded the whole way up to #3 to take Mac Jones I will vomit.
Yeah I'm sure you are nervous. On top of my skepticism about his ability vs. a Justin Fields, for example, he has the off field issues to boot.

Our house was finished almost 2.5 years ago at this point. New development going in up the road and a house of similar size is “starting at” $10K more than our final price after add-ons and upgrades.
