    I always figured a tell for him lying was his mouth moving.

    Who Pays the Coronaman? - Covid #8

    I saw this video on how the virus spreads. Extremely informative.

    What's for Dinner part 8.

    Actually the show was one of the funnier takes on a global pandemic killing off almost everyone in the world.

    A freezer full of bacon? Wasn't that a plot point in The Last Man On Earth?

    And the Berlin Wall was to keep people from sneaking into the DDR.

    UK Politics: Life in the Johnsonian Dystopia

    Losing medical staff who actually treat those who are ill would be worse for the country.

    So What Do You All Think of Zack Snyder?

    The creators were Jewish boys. One from Cleveland and one from Toronto.

    Will We Stand The Corona Test of Time? - Covid #7

    I am retired from a hospital. I have seen it all, working there and as a union exec there. A complete racket.

    As someone second in line and a long line forming behind him, his perceived importance is negligible. His actual importance is even less so. Visiting hospitals and getting in the way is not a reason for getting tested.

    The world after the pandemic

    We have had a lot of different diseases over the centuries cause mass epidemics. The unknown plague that just about killed off Athens during the Peloponnesian War certainly changed Athens but in the long run Athenian culture is still the basis for much of western civilization.

    Making a v with your first two fingers was first done by Churchill and meant victory in war, not peace. The symbol for peace was the symbol of an inverted v with a perpendicular line through it and came from nuclear disarmament. In the 60s the upright v became a peace sign in response to the war in Vietnam. Wonder Woman predates all this. Read a bit of history before spewing all this crap.

    Canadian Tire in Barrie was 67.9 cents/litre. No line up at all. And then just a mile or so from home in Aurora, 63 cents. I was just cleaning up my tools and such now that I am retired and found my old respirator i used when weld noxious metals. It is an N99 respirator. Welding and safety suppliers should have these and the replaceable filters. I used to have a cartridge respirator when I worked with noxious gases but I got rid of that when the cartridges expired and I changed jobs. I have a box of dust masks but they are rated for nuisance dusts only.

    Plague Lit...

    Judging by the speed at which it kills, Poe could be describing Ebola. Especially the bleeding from all orifices.
