I changed my text notification tone to the tone that plays when you get DoWed in EUIV.

I've been jumping all day.  It's kind of great.

Mine was the MGS guard-alert ping for a couple years.  I should replace my stock text message notification with something positive or soothing, these days - maybe a level-up or victory ditty from something, but brief of course.

More importantly, the virus has brutally forced the FDA to approve drugs that target generic corona viruses, which it has specifically stonewalled in the past. (Demanding specific diagnoses, specific efficacy testing, et al.)

Merck recently released a drug called molnupiravir that wrecks rna virus replication (as in, generic rna viruses as a broad class) , specifically due to covid.  It increased chances of surviving severe covid 50% in their human trial.

Should it ever become OTC, the common cold is done for.
Also yes this sounds really cool  :)
Somewhat relevant XKCD though not actually the same thing:

Just had to do a little area-to-volume calculations and decided I'd ask Google for some help. That led me to this very helpful site "SensorsONE.com", which is apparently the website of a company that sells all sorts of sensor and measurement tools. Awesome! So they probably know their stuff!


Calculating...
5 meter height, times
5 meter length, times
5 meter depth, equals

125,000 litres.

...uh. Lemme try this with some different measurements.

Calculating...
5 foot height, times
5 foot length, times
5 foot depth, equals

125 cubic feet.


...

Okay, so, maybe don't buy SensorONE brand volumetric measurement products! :P

Yeah, no, turns out that was absolutely a me problem. My head thought "Wait, a 1x1x1 cube is 1 m, so a 2x2x2 cube is obviously 2 m!"

In my defense, I've been kinda zonked out the past couple days and brain hasn't been braining very well. Apologies all around

My antimask colleague is firmly antiracist, he just had a big yellout with some spiteful old lady. He even got vaccinated but I'm not allowed to tell the others. People are weird animals tehee. When imbibed in US politics that seems like such a thing that isn't on the menu... Y'allz political landscape lacks diversity.

I think it's probably more the case it is so diverse, it just looks like a uniform sludge. Like when you melt a box of crayons, you end up with a uniform brown color.  How apropos.  ;D

Yeah maybe it's less a lack of diversity and more an issue if size and expression. The US is so large that it follows from that a disability to express diverse political opinion on a meaningful level.

And when viewed from the outside the problem then seems like there is no diversity.

And that's putting aside the fallacious thinking of "we have diversity because this one person I interact with irl is complex. They, of whom I don't interact with anyone at all, are all the same".

Could be worse. You could have a system like the UK where you have a plurality of parties whose candidates all come from two Universities; you can be red, blue, yellow or green, as long as it's Oxford or Cambridge

Could be even worse, like a single party here, with a fake oposition party made only to mantain the looks of democracy.

Uniform sludge? More like inescapable dichotomies.


Man I brought an iphone 4 home that didn't look broken thinking it might be a valuable object. It would be comical how useless it actually is, if it weren't so sad how much money people spend on these. Those pretentious rich suckers really love to sacrifice any kind of convenient feature for a workflow that provides the illusion of convenience. The damn thing decides for you what can be used on mobile data and what can't, and who needs an sd card slot, forget about tethering or hotspots - and oh - you wanted to just drag and drop music files in there? hahahaha


whatever reason I could come up with to justify using it, the thing is like nope, lol wtf people pay so much money to be disrespected like that

Agree, plus that's about the LAST thing *I* want to see from this kind of game - author spending valuable development time on useless graphics.
