Aardvark-Vanaheim's COVID-19 Response

Hi, Everybody!

The new one: Attractive Cousins


The four different High Societys.

So Dave faxed me:
Click for bigger readability
And I faxed him AMOC's COVID-19 Response along with the update that my wife and the eight year old have the flu..

Then he faxed back:


Here's a version of the book Dave mentioned.

And here's Darth Vader reading the King James Version of John's Gospel. (You're welcome.)

Next Time: Oliver leaves his bunker to check Twitter for T.P. and bread. Wish him luck!

It's possible to get sick with flu even if you have been vaccinated (although you won't know for sure unless you get a flu test). ... There are many different flu viruses that circulate every year. A flu vaccine is made to protect against the three or four flu viruses that research suggests will be most common.

Goodluck with that California road trip especially Berkeley.

I'm pretty sure that I've never had the common flu in decades, and I'm sure that I haven't had a flu shot in that same span.

However, I will probably get the coronavirus vaccination a few months after the end of the world as we know is over.

BTW, I feel fine.

Jeff said...

As we know *it* is over.

Still feel fine.

David: Yeah, I understand that, I just have lost 30% of my ability to articulate. I miss sleep.

Jeff: Well, you're definitely going to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it's available, since the plan is to make it mandatory. But that's not gonna happen until May, 2021 at the earliest.

So, wash your hands, stay home, and read Cerebus.

The "1918 Spanish flu" actually ran, according to Wikipedia, from January 1918 until December 1920, almost three years.

This virus has been active perhaps 6 months; it's my understanding social media posts from the Wuhan area refer to some of the symptoms as early as October 2019.

The draconian measures being implemented now are an effort to PREVENT this virus from having such a horrific impact a year or two from now.

This isn't 'overreacting' if the measures prove beneficial. If the measures don't prove beneficial it really won't matter much, whole cultures will have to change.

Going to be some difficult years ahead; the ambulatory surgery center I work at is closed until at least April 3rd. We can use our accrued paid time off (if we have it), go unpaid, look for other work, and collect unemployment.

I'm better off than many: I have a good amount of leave available, money in savings, and relatively low living expenses for a family of four.

But it won't last 18 - 24 months.

And, at the risk of pinching the dragon, what definitive evidence is there that the Wescott and Hort translation does not also do mangling of its' own, for nefarious or benign purposes?

Steve, knowing more about it now, I see what you mean. Interesting about the different interlinears or whatever. I don't think it matters much if one can read whatever version they use (unless one starts dropping text and saying Paul's writings and more were wrong, like the United Methodist LGBT movement is doing, which has actually brought up a big vote to split the church at their next convention.).

Um, maybe it's me, but if one wants to be Christian at all, but totally drop out most of the New Testament, parts of the Old, and the Koran, or whatever else, I think they're just better off staying gay. How can one have both? Aren't they just quietly diving and conquering on purpose for the fun of it? Is it pay back for the churches doing the same for years trying to conquer others? Are the LGBT justified? Is just doing what one wants the better option. If that's dividing and conquering though, don't we have a problem?

Does one ignore them? Become like Rick kind of and quietly do their own thing, and if that leads to the others killing them (Isn't that kind of how Dave sees it?), ok? Or, something else? I mean, most people here like Dave and Cerebus. But, most don't care about his suggestions given here about what to do. But, most of us aren't hating Dave like the others.

But, I'm pretty sure Dave thinks most of us are lost. He's glad we're buying portfolios and helping him survive. But, in the end, Dave seems pretty happy with his choice. Yet, he admits he's terribly sad and hasn't experienced any joy like he did before he liked God. He agrees but has made a choice. One must choose bad or good. And, bad or good will be their reward.

"Dividing." Not, "diving."
