Which brings us right back to a concept well understood by people who come from where the work gets done. 85% of all problems are direct traceable to top management. In this case, a boss with a less than 30 second attention span. (As publicly stated by his close ally.)

No argument here.

Hell, his insistence that you hire doctors and researchers after the epidemic has already started is all you really need to hear about that.

But but free trade...

That's just ... great.
:(

Now second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth. Tragic. There's a nursing home(?) where most of the deaths have occurred,but some in the the next county. Governor Inslee has declared an emergency. Schools have been closed. No masks or hand sanitizer to be found. Read an article today about how to make your own hand sanitizer, 2/3 99% alcohol mixed with 1/3 aloe vera gel or vegetable glycerin.

It feels grim.

Masks: Three bandanas. Wear them around your face like you're robbing a train, change them out regularly, wash daily.

Sorted.

Be safe out there V. We are under assault from the plain old flu here but it's only a matter of time.

It's natural, it's organic, it's Libertarian, thinning the herd, culling the weak and unfit. Economic opportunity abounds, that $12 a week we were wasting on Grannie can be put to better use. Selling people what they think they need for obscene profits. Raise the cost of funerals to push people into buying insurance so we can raise the cost of funerals. The Soylent Green processing kills all viruses and germs.

PSA: you can make your own hand sanitizer, as long as it has as least 60% alcohol content.

Also PSA: Knob Creek makes a single barrel 120 proof bourbon.

We are still learning how this virus is transmitted. Through a stomach? Is 120 proof strong enough?

Why would anyone waste good bourbon on their hands? If you are going to go, then go happy.

xoxoxoBruce 03-04-2020 12:17 AM

120 proof is barely 60%, 750ml for $53.
A quart of 91% isopropyl is $2.59 at target.

Suit yourself.

Drink a pint of whiskey to get those viruses drunk, then open your mouth and stick out your tongue so they will stagger out to the end of it and fall off out of your body.

If the end of your tongue sticks out further than the rest of your body.

Mr. Clod's entire company just shut down their offices indefinitely; everyone working from home until further notice. They have a Seattle branch, but this applies to all branches.

We have 1 more week until spring break. I'd lay money on our school remaining closed after that.

glatt 03-04-2020 11:17 AM

Interesting.

I'm going to need to review our remote computing procedures. I do it very rarely.

Let's say you had a wedding scheduled for May 2 at Niagara Falls, with 25 people driving up to attend, including 3 people over 80 and 1 two-year-old. What would you do?
