    My coworker is going. He's the only fabrication guy we have. If he gets sick we're hosed. Nobody else can do the welding and fab work he can and that division is slammed. Should be interesting..

    But I'm eagerly anticipating Rambo's sharing of, "What he knows that we do not." It could change everything...

    In other news, I took my first Covid test today as part of our back to school protocol. We start 8/24 and probably have the perfect combination of relatively small student body and huge open campus to make this succeed.

    The smart money is betting that a few students will screw it up for everyone and we'll all be remote by "murderer of indigenous people's day."

    Thanks,

    I freaking HATE teaching online and will be very disappointed, but not surprised, if all the planning to be back with a reasonable set of safety protocols blows up due to the irresponsible action of a few.

    College students acting irresponsibly, I'm shocked that there's gambling going on in my establishment...

    The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has sickened more than 16.5 million people across six continents. It is raging in countries that never contained the virus. It is resurging in many of the ones that did. If there was ever a time when this coronavirus could be contained, it has probably passed. One outcome is now looking almost certain: This virus is never going away.

    The coronavirus is simply too widespread and too transmissible. The most likely scenario, experts say, is that the pandemic ends at some point—because enough people have been either infected or vaccinated—but the virus continues to circulate in lower levels around the globe. Cases will wax and wane over time. Outbreaks will pop up here and there. Even when a much-anticipated vaccine arrives, it is likely to only suppress but never completely eradicate the virus. (For context, consider that vaccines exist for more than a dozen human viruses but only one, smallpox, has ever been eradicated from the planet, and that took 15 years of immense global coordination.) We will probably be living with this virus for the rest of our lives.
    On a more hopeful note, the article suggests that it will become less deadly over time, becoming another seasonal flu.

    once a vaccine is developed, it will just be another ingredient in an annual flu shot, I ain't worried. It really isn't that deadly, survival rate in the US, is something like 99.8%, the deaths, are mostly people that are already on deaths door

    the biggest problem we've had so far, isn't the disease itself, but the political fear mongering that has come with it, pitting neighbors against each other

    That's not a disease problem.

    We have a politician who calls most of 160 million people give or take enemies.

    That makes supporters angry at non supporters, which turns non supporters angry at the audacity of calling them enemies and having their neighbors consider them enemies.

    Remember guys, he’s a scientist. He know climate change isn’t man made. And the overwhelming majority of climate scientists are wrong.

    This is why old people need training wheels for the internet.

    Jitterbug was also a name for a home-made tractor. During WWII farm tractors were in short supply, so farmers made them from cars. There were kits available, the most popular called “Doodlebug.” The ones I’ve seen had two transmissions (for gear reduction) a truck rear axle, and large steel-rimmed or truck rear wheels. Workmanship ranges from haphazard to amazing.

    Here is a recent scientific study. Valved N95 works about as well as most other masks. In fact the only ones that didnít work at minimizing the transmission of droplets were a bandanna, and a fleece mask.
