Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Update from The Netherlands: Quaraintine has been extended until the end of April. No surprise of course. RIVM (the Dutch CDC) has mentioned one or two weeks ago that they expect the outbreak to peak in the middle of May, so I'm fully expecting having to stay at home until June at least. If I'm goin...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Bug-in day 14 (Netherlands): Today it was my turn to do the weekly groceries. Limits have been placed on the amount of people allowed to enter supermarkets but because I went during working hours (lunch break) it wasn't too busy. However, because we have to keep 1,5 meters distance (about 5 feet) ap...

Re: Are we prepared for this?

My husband is not a prepper. At all. He gets cranky because I feel nervous if the pantry isn't fully stocked. ...he cleaned tools off 2 of the shelves in the hall closet so I could put up some more stuff, and hasn't said a word about the extra things I've been acquiring. Then again...he also doesn'...

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

About two weeks ago I made a prediction in this thread about how things would look in two weeks. How did I do? ... In the data so far, the lag has been pretty consistent: the number of known outcomes was approximately the total number of cases from two weeks prior. If that trend holds, in about two...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

One odd thing today: cell reception was really wonky. Overall coverage in our normally strong areas was poor, and where it is usually poor we had nothing. Friends reported they were having problems and I had two calls dropped - and I have never had that happen. Maybe today was a fluke? We'll see if...

The Netherlands First day of bug-in and it's simply uneventful. Went for a walk in the woods near my house during my lunch break from WFH. Saw a puppy and steered clear of its owner. That was fun.

So if you'll excuse me, I now have to slightly remodel my home office to suit two people instead of one. :awesome:

Re: Easy Foods for Weight Gain

This is exactly why it confused me. It sounded like a perfect prescription in a context of "America has an obesity problem, lets find ways to gain weight that don't risk obesity." However, it sounded like obesity is the very last thing Anianna's kiddo is dealing with. In fact, it may be a stomach(?...

Re: Easy Foods for Weight Gain

Just adding some input based on my weight lifting/baking hobbies: the diet's the doctors have prescribed, with the fish, lean meats, wholemeal breads and whatnot is a high protein diet typically used in bodybuilding/powerlifting routines. Which also surprises me why woodsghost hasn't heard of these ...

Re: Get your teeth fixed!!!

So why do root canals (with crowns, sure) cost an excess of $1000 there? Even without insurance my root canal was €280 (no crown, though.) Surely that translates to $350 or something, but what the heck?

Re: London trip

I greatly enjoyed Westminster Abbey (very pretty statues) and Notting Hill (Portobello Road Market). I can definitely reccomend those. Do try to find out what day the actual market is at Portobello Road Market, because that's when it's most fun.

Sadly Lynxian the people had their say when they voted to join the union and gave up part of your nations sovereignty to a bunch of unelected technocrats. The people are noonger part of the process.

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Everything is going to plan... Both sides are convinced that somehow an election will resolve the deadlock by handing one party the trifecta and make the choices clearer. Of course, it is very unlikely to do either. Or: neither side want to make the tough decision since that means they won't get el...

Not just in regard to the story, but also certain gameplay elements. I just found out some things I would've found cooler to find out by just playing the game.

In true Skyrimesque fashion: I also took friday the 11th off. Local game store said I could pick up Skyrim on the 10th already, so that'll mean a Skyrim setting from thursdayevening all to sundaynight. Sweet!
