  1. This is so exciting! A beautiful day to go back to space!
  2. I think there’s definitely an element of chance and bad luck to this, but this isn’t the first time a disease has emerged from China’s wet markets. When the first SARS cases arose in 2003 they were traded back to a wet market in Guangzhou. And now of course we have the whole mess in Wuhan and the bat/pangolin origin story we all know. There’s a clear pattern at play here. Regulation of these markets isn’t all that strict, it’s not as if the FDA is walking around these and it’s pretty easy to set up shop. So while I’m sure there weren’t any bad intentions here there should be significant international pressure for China to shutdown or at the very least heavily regulate these places. Anything less is just waiting for this to happen all over again.
  3. I’m gonna link my Spotify playlist that I’ve made for just this purpose. It has a decent amount of classical and theatrical stuff, some of which has already been mentioned here, but if I were to point out one piece in particular it would be Wo Ist Übergang which is from Netflix’s “Dark”. A very chilling piece and it really encapsulates the mood of the show which is phenomenal btw if you haven’t seen it. I can’t recommend it highly enough. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4QJCmHbLKa2edBOJSLVNvi?si=AQlyb7DfS1O9eSqDsGf2CA
  4. I think the idea that there’s too many games for fans to to be invested for all of them is a great argument personally. I don’t think I’ve ever met a single fan who’s watched all 162 games. It’s something I tune into a lot throughout the summer and certainly if it’s a big series against a division rival, but there’s also a sense of comfort knowing that baseball is going on in the background as the summer months go by even if I’m not watching every single game. It’s a marathon, not a sprint and I’m content with how it is. Even if the season were to be shortened I’m not sure how you can get it to a place where every game “matters”. Does that kick in at 150 games, 100, 81? With that said, if we only get 81 games in this year, sure it won’t be a normal year, but no reason for it not to be a legitimate season, just gotta make do with the circumstances.
  5. Oh very nice! Good to see you’re still keeping up with the game!
  6. Don’t mind me if this is too personal Ran, but I’ve picked up you live in Sweden. Are you an expat living there or did you somehow get into baseball from across the pond? Also, apparently Manfred is saying MLB is considering playing 7 inning games to get in the amount of games they want to??? Just an awful idea imo, just accept you can only get in 81 games or so and go with that smh
  7. It looks as though the procedural vote to end cloture has failed in the Senate. Can someone explain the significance of this to me and why it isn’t going to pass/what needs to change for the next bill to do so?
  8. JFC, this looks to be the worst case scenario without any action being taken, but regardless this is not good at all. If that happens we’re looking at a Depression not just a recession.
  9. And it looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue
  10. Pennsylvania just closed all schools for the next two weeks, looks like I’m out of a job for the moment, for the best of course
  11. Bolsonaro is confirmed to have tested positive with coronavirus
  12. From what I’ve heard I don’t think there’s any foundation for this belief in waves of the virus. By all measures the virus is surviving just fine in warmer climes so there’s no real reason to expect it to die down once summer comes and create a pause between waves. Especially in places like Australia where it already is summer.
  13. I’ve been substitute teaching in Pennsylvania, and I wouldn’t be surprised if today happens to be my last day teaching. Ohio and Michigan have closed all schools, won’t be shocked to see PA be next. We have Monday off already as it is so that gives authorities some more time to make a decision.
