Hey thread. I got a hosed up slow-mo trainwreck story for everyone!

My sister and I have lost the battle for reason with our boomer parents. They were never chuds, but "terminal boomer brain" is a thing.

They both work for school systems and have basically been on paid vacations since February. This whole time they've been itching to go relax at a dinky little condo they bought years back as investment property in Ocean City, Maryland.

For three months my sister and I have been reminding them to make healthy choices during the pandemic. It's been very difficult preventing them from going to visit family members who live in the same state, but we assumed a cross-country roadtrip would be enough to deter them. I live on another continent, and my sister is weeks away from having her second child. Neither of us can stop them.

Well, because Ocean City is now opened up for business, not only are both parents going, but somehow my immunocompromised aunt has decided to go with them. She had a transplant a few years ago and is on anti-rejection meds. She'd been so observant of social distancing that nobody was allowed in her house (groceries delivered on the porch). To add to it, their cousin has decided to hop in the car with them. Woo, vectors!

"Open er up!" is as toxic as the leaded gasoline and paint they were raised on.

My mom has worked as an RN in emergency rooms, private practices, and with the schools for more than 30 years. She informed me of the decision to completely boomer-out in the death cult with an email addressing me as "son" rather than my name. They'll "avoid" the restaurants and boardwalk unless "they're safe."

The email tells me they've all decided to go, and will bring groceries from home, only stay in the tiny 2 room condo the whole time, and wear gloves and masks when they stop at rest stops for bathroom breaks.

It makes no sense to me that they'd all be so cautious while not being cautious at all. I can only assume they all want to die. I can't stop them, so I'm just gonna learn to let go.

My sister has told them when she has her baby (in a few weeks) that they're not allowed in the hospital. Our cousin (child of the transplant aunt) is completely shocked their mom would make this decision to go as well. My sister and I are hoping nobody gets infected, but we're now suddenly at a realization that we should discuss inheritance, living wills, funeral arrangements, etc.

Tl;dr: terminal boomer brain is real, but the real treasure was all the chuds we met along the way.

So is this condo full of Covid? If it's been closed up since the last time they were there, did someone drill a hole through an outside wall and pump it full of Covid-positive air?

And will get re-elected.

When the Trump administration directed federal agents to intercept and steal shipments of PPE en route to various states, it looked like the PPE was most likely being redirected to a private company that was founded in March of this year by GOP fundraisers - Blue Flame Medical. Blue Flame Medical threw up a website and within DAYS somehow had an instant supply chain sufficient to provide bulk PPE at multi-state level of scale, during a time when established medical supply providers were back logged indefinitely.

At first, I assumed the goal was simply to resell the PPE back to the states that it was stolen from in the first place. However, the company apparently took money from several states and failed to deliver supplies. Which leaves me wondering what happened to the PPE these politically connected GOP bholes thought they had on lock?

I think there is a non-zero chance that the death cult decided it would be better to destroy the stolen PPE rather than profit from it. As absurd as it sounds, it is a scenario that fits the "we beat the plague, go outside and don't let anyone tell you to wear a mask" message the trumpaloompas are pushing.

Walmart has (free) contactless grocery pickup these days and I wholeheartedly recommend using it: https://grocery.walmart.com/

e: if the seizure/heart meds are prescription and not OTC, a lot of places can deliver prescriptions these days so it might be worth looking into whether that is possible for those medications

I wish that was the case here. They only thing they offer at this one is the Pickup@store orange tower thing inside.

You're assuming the grift here. It's also reasonably possible the stuff is somewhere else only god knows, and these guys are running a different scam of selling poo poo they dont have and praying they find the stuff they sold in time.

Either way they're bad news so I'm just being pedantic here.

There's a NY Times article about a Chinese covid vaccine that's showing some promise, and while you should obviously be extremely skeptical about each news story involving either a treatment, cure or vaccine, I think I'd cum if Trump ended up having to sell his base on 1) a vaccine made by 2) the Chinese. I think that would break the last icy slivers of sanity that remain with most chuds, and they'd just run howling into the night like a protagonist in a Lovecraft story.

It's a shame there will be no internet infrastructure in this future paradise where they can tell the rest how right and satisfied they are.

what on EARTH has led you to believe that this would happen? if a chinese vaccine actually did turn out to work it would simply not be used by america because it is not politically expedient to Trump lmao

stop with the small talk

This thread is making me incredibly happy that I'm in NJ and most people are sane enough to keep following protocol in stores and heavily-trafficked areas.

Of course walking my dog I'm one of the only few still wearing a mask on suburban side streets, but I'll see maybe 4-10 people on the whole 30 minute walk and most have been cognizant enough to cross the street when they see me coming. Maybe the 100 pound dog that looks menacing (but is actually a total hambone) helps.

Some guy on the NJ subreddit has been graphing all the numbers coming in daily and we seem to be on a good trajectory so far. Our governor isn't blowing his wad either and seems to have a decent phase-out plan for lockdown. Now all we need to do is close our loving borders so the morons coming in for our beaches stay the gently caress away.

You Americans have enough to fight over internally, congratulations, but in the EU there is now a fight on who will pay the bill.

Macron came up with a nice plan where Northern Europe finances a couple of trillions for Southern Europe, and of course Merkel thought that was a great idea.

No no no no, said the Frugal Four: Austria, Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden, we don't give our credit card away.

So now the fight is on, the little ones against the big bullies (but in the German press I read a lot of support for the FF countries position, it seems not every German supports Merkel in giving away that much money).
