Discussion: Things I don't get

sure, but women don't need more than two squares for any one incident of the number one variety. that's barely a rounding error.

 Apparently there is no pandemic-related short supply of mansplaining.

Pregnant women should demand a $500 stimulus check. You either get it, or force a Repub has to acknowledge that a fetus is not a child !

Seems to me that we are in the midst of an unprecedented disaster and we need to cut teachers a little slack.

I will say that's it possible that somebody is pumped on drugs.

 Not in any everyday way.   The thought is that for this one-time performance they worked out a plan to get him in the best shape possible.  Possible parts of that could include giving him the questions ahead of time and practicing them, having a wire in his ear (which was detected with Bush on a only debate),  making sure he had a tremendous amount of sleep before hand and maybe some vitamin shots.  giving him some drugs to include alertness, focus, etc. and maybe some other stuff.

 touche, forgot about that part.

 You forgot the whole part about lecturing other people about how to attend to the hygiene of anatomical parts you don't have.

Discussion: Keeping Grown-Ups Sane During Social Isolation

Like Hatsoff I felt really low yesterday.   I had gone to the store for some fresh fruit and veg, but made the mistake of looking at the TP and cleaning products aisle.  I was so saddened by the empty shelves and worried for people who really needed those products, but couldn't get them.

Then I went for a walk and admired people's gardens.  A number of families are displaying their kids' art projects in the windows and on front doors.  That really cheered me up.  I also had a random conversation with another walker (don't worry 6+ feet apart).  It was good to feel that human connection.

My husband and I are slowly working through the backlog of shows on our DVR.  Ken Burns' Country Music series was great!

I'm also trying to read actual books to rest my eyes since I have to stare at the computer screen for work.  Yesterday I went for "comfort food" and revisited Jane Austen's Persuasion.  

MOL is also a source of comfort.  Knowing that you are all out there - complaining about our usual issues of bad parking and thoughtless drivers, as well as offering suggestions for music - it helps a lot.

I hope that people have taken this opportunity to examine their TP usage patterns and have worked to minimize usage if possible. Due to previously wasteful habits in the before time, I've been able to cut my usage by a good 50%.

A square in the hand is worth two in your butt.

Or something.

I hope it doesn't last for long but we are going to become numb to the death reports.  Those of us of a certain age remember watching the news every night with body counts of U.S. and Vietnamese dead.   It became white noise.
