  1. I find the show interesting but I can’t binge watch it. After watching each episode I feel like I need to bathe. The people for the most part pretty creepy.
  2. Being in a structure really makes a difference. my son just happened to be under a shelter in a park and he noticed it because the shelter started making lots of noise. The first thing I noticed was lot of noise coming from above me in the apartment above, after that I felt it at ground level where I was. If I’d been outside standing on grass I’m not sure what I would’ve felt
  3. I think I felt a couple aftershocks today. I was sitting in the kitchen on the same wooden chair I was sitting on the day before when the real earthquake happened and suddenly the floor and the chair just vibrated momentarily and there’s no good reason for that kind of stuff to happen. If I’d been sitting on a cushy couch of some kind I don’t think there’s any chance I would’ve felt it.
  4. Yeah everybody’s OK, thanks. It’s just weird. What was worst was that after 10 seconds it trickled to almost nothing and then came back with this rolling feeling that grew and grew and the rattling and the rumbling grew and grew and I knew if it kept growing it would rip my building to pieces. Glad it didn’t.
  5. At 5:53 PM MST Boise, Idaho today I experienced a 6.5 earthquake. There was first a large rumble and I thought “wow the people upstairs are making a lot of noise.” Then the floor was shaking the table the shaking the windows were shaking and it started to roll and build and get worse and worse and it did all this for about 30 seconds. It was like the earth had waves in it and you could feel every wave as it went through your body. As it got worse it was really frightening. When it subsided my heart was definitely in the aerobic target zone. Earthquakes are not common here by the way. The picture, is not truly what happened but it’s what it felt like. I have a tendency to be a bit dramatic. But without any exaggeration it was quite an event, simply due to its novelty.
  6. This sounds like something that requires energy and focus, things that I don’t particularly enjoy doing. I am however willing to enjoy the fruits of everyone else’s labor.
  7. This is actually quite fascinating but like much of what happens here it’s kind of over my head.
  8. I’m not so sure I’m going to die help the stock market. Are infected people going to go into nursing homes and infect people? At least they ought to make it fun.
  9. In Idaho where I live the county where the Sun Valley ski resort is located, Blaine County, has seen a tremendous irruption of positive tests, with 14 new positive tests recorded overnight, and 35 within the last week. Initially it was all within the ultra rich jetsetter crowd who have their 5th or 6th homes in Sun Valley and who came into contact with the disease because they are world travelers. All the new cases are local people with no record of recent travel who got it locally. Finally, something from the elites has trickled down to the rest of us.
  10. I’m glad that people care. The main thing is that without the baseball side there’s not a lot of reason for me to show up here, and I am an a-hole in the political form like everybody else and I don’t like playing my hand that way so I don’t show up there either.
  11. I’m doing a lot better Deran. Today’s the first day I’ve felt almost normal. I was really sick for a couple weeks. I haven’t had a sickness like this in years. I’ve been in self-isolation for nearly 3 weeks. Today is the first day I haven’t had a constant, serrated, hacking cough or felt lightheaded and emotionally skewered. I only had the chills for about a week. I never had a fever or shortness of breath, so I’ve never qualified, in this country at least, to be tested. In one week Idaho has gone from having one positive test to 50. It’s really taking off here. I’m 95% sure I had it but I wouldn’t test positive for it now I think.
  12. This didn’t make me smile but it made me laugh. It’s sort of the penultimate expression of idiotic pandering Clickbait. And yes it was on this forum in the Mandalorian thread. I’m not getting Anastasia ads or ads for tight-fitting women’s apparel anymore so this is just hilarious.
