D&D and the rising pandemic

A bit too close to the truth for comfort there:

Gamma World thought of that (minus the disease part) back in 1980. They are overdue.
Great. That sounds great. Thanks 2020 :confused:

I made the difficult decision to not meet with my mother for an undetermined time. This news will land hard with her so shortly before her birthday, but it is the best thing to do at the time. I care deeply about the people around me, and I don't want to put them at risk. There are people in my street who can barely walk after 'recovering' from COVID. This is a scary disease that leaves people with permanent damage to their muscles. If certain people in my life don't take it serious enough, it is dangerous for me and those I care about, to hang out with them. If she believes it is fine to have parties and be in one space with large amounts of people, then I can't trust her to behave carefully elsewhere. And that puts me and my friends at risk.

You made the right- though clearly difficult- choice. Your priorities in order.

My barber of the past decade+ lost his brother to C19, and passed on going to the funeral because he knew others with the virus were going. He’s just had a kid with his 2nd wife- no way in hell he was going to jeopardize his newborn.

Incredible. That is such a difficult choice to make, but clearly also the right call.
 



This is like daring the cosmos to make it even worse. "Oh, you think this is bad? Try this...!"

Our issues this year are almost entirley of our own collective making. If this is the worst timeline, it is our own darned fault.
That's the worst part of it.

Now, whether they’re going to ENFORCE the order is another matter entirely. There’s at least one sheriff in Ohio who has publicly stated he won’t enforce such ordinances and actually ordered his deputies to go about their duties unmasked. Similarly, sheriffs in Denton, Houston, Montgomery, Gillespie, Upshur, Kerr, Gregg, Nacogdoches and Panola counties in Texas have likewise refused to enforce the Governor’s masking order, citing “unenforceability” and logistical issues. So far as I know, none of those 10 LEOs has gotten any kind of reprimand.

Add Utah County (Utah) to the list.
