Talking to my mom about Austria just now. "well, I don't think I'd want to go even after the lockdown cuz it wouldn't be safe cuz of all that Covid"

"mom, you're vaccinated, you have nothing to worry about"

"yeah, but vaccinated people can still get sick"

"yes, but they won't die from it and you won't get really sick. You don't need to worry about this stuff."




anyway, I guess I'll be having that conversation many times.

Hey DJ, did you delete your earlier post? It looked really funny.

so, i found the description for Skyrim Very Special Edition which runs on Alexa:

Description
Players: 1
Bethesda Game Studios is proud to present Skyrim... for Alexa. Yes, that’s right, the version of Skyrim you never saw coming has finally arrived on the platform you never asked for.

For the very first time ever, take your rightful place as the Dragonborn of legend (again) and explore Skyrim using the power of your own voice...your Thu’um!

Prepare to:
● Quest and explore the dungeons of Skyrim
● Master your weapons, spells and shouts
● Encounter people who constantly need your help
● Guard your knees against arrows
● Fatally harm mudcrabs
● Fight dragons
● Die
● Fight another dragon
● Eat sweet rolls
● Fus Ro Dah
● Chase butterflies
● Burn spiders
● Walk straight up a mountain instead of going around
● Vanquish malevolent evils
● There’s probably mead somewhere in there
● No goblins, though
● Soul trap woodland creatures
● Victory or Sovngarde, whichever one you prefer
● Also cheese wheels and a fork
● Fail to collect all stones of Barenziah for like the 5th time
● Talk with guards
● Unleash the power of your Thu’um
● Open wooden doors
● Open iron doors
● Other epic things
● And more!

I’d say the strongest argument in favor of restrictions is tied to hospital beds. Think with where we’re at with vaccines available, the only point I (being vaxxed) care about the unvaxxed is when hospitals fill up. If I get in a car accident or something crazy, I’d like to have a bed available for me. If hospitals aren’t in danger regarding capacity, I don’t care. I think that should be the primary concern with restrictions, and the target goal when putting them into effect.

With respect to endemic - it’s inevitable imo. I don’t see it going away, and once we’ve all caught it (imo we will, many times over in a lifetime), it won’t be the same threat it poses as a novel infection. More like Just a Flu Bro. Prob be some similarities with seasonal flu shots that will be particularly important for elderly and folks with underlying conditions to keep antibodies up to date, but don’t envision need for reoccurring lockdowns. Focus on keeping hospitals from getting overwhelmed should be the bridge between now and then.

Is Hawkeye any good? I crush a bit on Hailee Steinfeld so I’m curious. I bet it’s anywhere from
a 6 to a 9.

The show is not good so far, but might get better.

Give lowest priority to the unvaccinated? But, seriously, fair point I suppose.

I have always had a real hard time caring about bow and arrow superheroes. Hawkeye and Green Arrow (and their sidekicks) never interested me. Never got into their comics. Could never get past how impractical bow wielding is in superhero context.

If you're wanting to see any skin, it's not gonna happen. Otherwise,she's the main character.

If Poet had been like, « She’s featured predominantly in the first season and has a few action scenes as well as two shots of full penetration, » I would have missed work today
