  2. Michael Bay’s new movie is about a bizarro alternate universe where the US government is mishandling a pandemic, but I did the math and I’m 95% certain the virus would have died out by killing all of its hosts too fast to find new ones under the conditions portrayed in the film.

    • @mrmattimation Wait, really? Not that he'd botch the math, that I super-believe... But the whole-ass movie??

    • @scribus yeah, look up “Songbird” sometime. Written at the very beginning of the pandemic and filmed almost entirely by the cast with cell phones, it takes place in 2024 in a world where COVID mutated into a deadly super virus which kills 50% of the people it infects, anyone who gets it is automatically reported to the government via smartphone tracking, and they’re quarantined in a concentration camp until they either die or get better. I’m no virologist, but I’m pretty sure that under those conditions, the virus would have been dealt with a long time ago.

    • @mrmattimation I mean considering what a 3% mortality rate did to us, I must be inclined to agree, one way or another...

  4. One day I’ll have to answer for a few of the people I used to associate with and I can’t really think of anything better than “I had bad character judgement skills when I was 19”

    • @mrmattimation I mean, I really don't see (especially after time has passed) why people can't accept "saw what they were, told them to split/split myself." The whole "Crap the uprising failed, uuhhhh Sowwy?" move is obviously weak, but I mean really! 19! NOBODY is good at 19!!

    • @scribus The one I’m really worried about does backend stuff now for a certain wildly popular (especially with teenage American girls????) animated web series and I don’t wanna be the dickhole who sets that team back again so I’ve been thinking about getting in touch with the current show runner to let him know what I know so that it doesn’t bite ALL of us in the ass at some point in the future.

    • @scribus honestly, it's twenty minutes to get to the metro station which takes me into the district proper, longer if you try to drive into the district. I live really, really close to the city BUT there's pretty much only one bridge going into and out of the city on the Virginia side, not sure if it's the same story in Maryland. And traffic on that bridge is always, always terrible. I used to drive into Alexandria once a week for school - Alexandria being one of the two cities that borders Washington on this side of the river - and even THAT is a complete nightmare. Definitely not as bad as going from, say, Glendale to Los Angeles, based on photos I've seen, but still pretty bad.

    • @scribus This is really just a bad habit of mine. Any home console games where you could manipulate things on-screen usually ended up getting pushed to their very limits by me. Special mention goes to Fallout 4 where my game was perpetually running at sub-20 any time I was in one of my settlements.

      • @scribus Majority infection will be the eventual outcome, slower or quicker.
        There are two ways to beat a virus: you either completely isolate every infected individual and anyone who is physically capable of contracting it for at least twice the lifespan of the virus, and I'm talking full lockdown, napalmed when opening the door; or you wait until almost the entire population has been infected and developed herd immunity, at which point new infections become very rare if the virus survives at all to mutate over following years.
        Full lockdown wasn't done in time and in any case it is impossible considering the social paradigms of any western country, so the option that remains is the latter. Containment can only be reasonably used to slow spread to a rate to which the health system can handle it, but won't stop the spread, no matter how much a government insists on it. And it also vastly increases the number of deaths from existing conditions untreated due to lockdown.

      • @nerthos @scribus In short, don't lose your mind over it too much, there's nothing to do about it. Just make sure you're taking care of your personal health so if you get infected you have high chances of recovery.

    • Well, I got off the phone with some dork local politician. Told him four times now I'll never vote for him; might still, haven't looked into his positions. But, he needs to be punished for daring to spam me. E-mail, said "Leave me alone." So he calls, I say "Seriously, no." So he has some rando volunteer text me. Like I said, maybe he is the best guy for the job, but he's still an asshole and mango him for that!
