I am so glad my financial situation has allowed me to maintain a 3-6 month emergency reserve of all essentials. The only thing I scaled up for with the whole coronavirus thing was dry goods since I was already on cycle for a rice and bean resupply.

I hope one of the silver linings of all this bullshit is going to be people being a little more prepared for poo poo. But when people very understandably live paycheck to paycheck, that might not be realistic.

Speaking of eggs, a few weeks ago I started hearing reports of people stealing chickens from backyard flocks. I ended up adding weatherproof locks to my coop to at least make an attempt at protecting my girls and I'm thinking about adding another camera to the coop.

Well, that's what I was meaning. Set it up so folks can watch chickens and dangle toys at them or something. Maybe a feed button for dropping feed corn pellets.

then i could get a chicken youtube which turns into a chicken patreon and build the chicken rescue of my dreams

Had some of these guys drive by us while patio drinking, along with an absolute shitton of people on the way to the protest (and a few with trash bags full of t shirts to sell). I'm not on the cops' side, but I get their need to have these teams in place and be prepared, even if I don't like it, but for fucks sake don't have the dude with the loving suppressed AR (in addition to beanbag guy), or indeed anyone at all, just riding on the outside of the vehicle. If you present to people as wanting a fight you're likely to get one, though I'd imagine that's kinda their intent.



Less than lethal is often deployed alongside full lethal in case the less than lethal option fails. It's common practice with taser deployments since they have a pretty high failure rate. Also, I'd rather a cop use a rifle with optics if they're going to be anywhere near a crowd. If they absolutely have to deploy a firearm, it might as well be the one that can be operated accurately.

UNRELATED: riding on the outside of a vehicle like that is hella fun. I used to jump on the back of my buddy's disco and ride around like that like a total fuckwit when I was a younger fuckwit.

aw man cyrano is now a statistic in the spike in household cooking accidents

Captain Log posted:

I can tell you another thing - if a deep fat fryer catches fire and you pull it out of the kitchen onto the loading dock, it will get stolen in the middle of broad daylight in the rich white people part of town. The funnier thing? It would 100% catch back on fire when plugged up. It was gas powered. We were all watching the news waiting to see "rear end in a top hat HOUSE EXPLODES!" headline.

tweakers prolly dumped the oil down the storm drain and sold the fryer for scrap.

You get a lot of sizzle and pop contact burns but as long as you dont use the oil too long and keep the temp in check its nothing to worry about. Never had a fire on my watch. At least any big ones....

Oh I've worked kitchens and never had a deep fryer fire. It's just the whole vat of boiling oil thing that turns into big fire and the kitchen into a giant slip and slide.

Now that I'm home (early morning infusion is such fun) I can take a picture of my great grandfather's pen from the war. It's a Parker 51. These can be dated down to the quarter of the year they were made. I don't recall, but it is at least as old as the War.





I never got around to refurbing it. If anyone has a good suggestion for a company, let me know.

This is the truth. I was full-time remote from 2012-2019. The only way I made it work was with a coworking space, because otherwise you just feel super isolated and alone. It also makes collaborative work difficult.

My happy place is probably 80/20 remote/office. If I go back to full-time remote I'd probably find or start a coworking space just to keep myself sane.

I'm more of a 60/40 Remote/Office kind of person. When I'm not in the office every day I prioritize human interactions and get a poo poo load of planning done. Then my remote time is spent doing actual loving work without getting random flybys interrupting my flow. Right before lockdown, I was 40/60 remote/office time and even that was pretty dope. Since I have a long commute by coach bus, I prioritized my morning and evening commute to do actual work and make sure I can get poo poo done on my WFH days.

Having a dedicated work space/office for WFH is basically Rule #1. Not only to keep productivity up and distractions down, but it also affords you the opportunity to still remove yourself from your work environment at the end of the day.
Oh poo poo yes.

Gotta be honest just having a wfh comp can make the difference. I’m sitting at the same desk if I’m working or playing games but being on a 100% different desktop puts me in the “gotta be serious” mind space.

I ended up buying a second laptop just so I could do personal stuff on a machine. Unfortunately, my video game /image editing rig is in an unconditioned converted attic and gets fuckoff hot on sunny days so i cant just switch desks and still be comfortable.


fake edit: on hot days i go out in the back and work from backyard. it makes everyone jealous on con-calls.

I liked all of the meetings my job had when the folks who normally worked in the office were forced to work from home. I mean, talk about the newbiest of noobs. I poo poo you not, the first few Webex meetings we had? Some of them actually hadn't put so much as a Post-It brand adhesive memo sheet over the camera! I mean, they weren't even using the software to turn off the video. And they were still in Phase 1: Office Clothes. I bet they still showered daily, the fools.

There are phases of WAHs. My band's guitarist and I have had many discussions about this. (He worked for the Eminence speaker company for several years, and he worked remotely.)
Everyday I've worked since this whole Covid-19 thing kicked off, I've gotten cleaned up and dressed in my quarantine work uniform which conists of shorts and an aloha shirt, setup my backdrop area (bookshelf) so it is picture ready, and made sure i had nice off camerea lighting. I wanna stand out in video conferences, particualrly when I'm the presenter so people actually remember me. Also, aloha shirts are comfy as hell and my office gets hot as heck in the afternoon.

Question for the floor.

Apartment management left a note saying there will be mantainance people coming into my apartment later this week. Routine stuff nothing special.

I'm still sick and despite the test being negative I'm still acting as though I'm Covid-19 positive since I have nearly all the symptoms. I've messaged my management informing them of this but they never responded.

Think I should put a note on my door saying "Hi Covid-19 positive occupant take the necessary precautions before entering" in case management doesn't tell the workers?
