I honestly think I'd rather prep for a colonoscopy.

Let's do some experiments. I've got this secret facility in Hungary where we can test you without any outside interference or knowledge that might interfere with those tests.

We have 8 people from my workplace on PTO waiting for test results.

This took longer to hit us than I expected.

As of May 20 all 50 States are in the process of opening. I can be back in homes as of next week pending testing and training. I'll likely be tested 2x per week.

Yeah, my boss has it. I just got the nose thing, so I am working in isolation until results come back.

Our state here (Qld) is opening up from today so anyone can go anywhere within the state now, but the borders are still closed between the other states. We've had 0 new cases for several days now, and only 1 or 2 or 0 for the last few weeks. Only 5 active cases at present. I think our state governments in general did well in containing the virus, but our federal government are a joke. If it weren't for the state Premiers, we'd be in a mess right now.

My business has tanked though. No weddings or parties for a few months, and almost all of the weddings from this year have moved to next year, so financially things are pretty tight except for the financial packages available through centrelink (our government welfare office). Things are starting to pick up a little bit now that there's a little more certainty. So that's good.

Is the competition - an instant Las Vegas wedding featuring Elvis - back in business yet?

Romanian shoemaker makes size 75 shoes for social distancing

Grigore Lup, from the Transylvanian city of Cluj in Romania, has been making leather shoes for 39 years.

When the pandemic hit, the shoemaker, whose shop “relies heavily on custom orders from theatres and opera houses across the country, as well as traditional folk dance ensembles,” according to Reuters, saw his business impacted.

However, according to Lup, as restrictions eased across Europe, he realised that people weren’t taking social distancing seriously - so he came up with the lengthy shoes as a way for them to keep their distance.

“You can see it on the street, people are not respecting social distancing rules,” Lup told the outlet. “I went to the market to buy seedlings for my garden. There weren’t many people there but they kept getting closer and closer. ...

Me, too. But there's still six months of 2020 to live through, or die from.
