Wuhan Virus

Well we are all boned over here. Apparently there is a 2 week dormancy period on the virus. And they shut down direct flights from Wuhan to SFO only a few days ago.

186049 Hillary blasts Sanders. 186095 Sanders surges ahead of Biden in poll. "The Hillary Effect" This is only kind of a joke. The backlash against her for saying that was kind of a message that Sanders could, in fact, be the candidate for real. I personally think Warren is more unelectab...

The guy needs serious help. For sure. I'm struggling to think of someone in professional sports who has fallen as hard and fast as he did? Ricky Williams did something sort of similar and picked weed 24/7 over football, but he wasn't as big of a star as AB was/is. He didn't burn any bridges either,...

Because only one person could drive after dark and EVERYONE is still trying to get laid. Duh.

Which screen? Those new 38-49" curved ones are crazy.


My buddy has one of those, it looks pretty rad. I'll probably go cheap, I can't imagine paying that much for a monitor.

The Witcher

I'm on to book two, and my full shipment of books came in this weekend. Book 2 notes that that Witchers cause magicians/wizards to have a tingly, pleasant, physical reaction when they touch each other. Basically, Geralt is a giant magical walking dildo. Makes you think. Not sure what, but makes you ...

Heat and humidity for sure - but also bugs - when you don't have windows and doors you can close - the bugs in Florida at night will eat your shit up. Way less of a problem in CA. e: not that CA doesn't have bugs, heavens no, slugs are bugs right? I've killed about 300 of them in the last few weeks ...

Insane California idea floated last month: Park a cruise ship in the port of Oakland and house homeless people there. Sort of sounds insane. Even got some push back from the Nimby's and the do-nothing groups (and the port). But that push-back got a much stronger push-back from newspaper write-ins an...

Started the books. Good, and different in a few ways to the show, like GoT First book still has the scene with Geralt bringing a dead monster into Blaviken hoping someone will pay for it. On consideration, It’s very meta open world game commentary. Encountering the monster and lair before you even g...

His abilities are done the same way, with very little explanation. I wish he'd use them a bit more in his fights though. Reflecting a bit I really liked that line/scene where Triss? Yennefer? talks shit about how weak Geralt is with magic. And objections aside, I get the Triss character choice afte...
