Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

On my aircraft everyone has a mask on. I can’t speak for other airlines.

Again I can’t speak for delta or southwest, but we require a mask, and must be worn unless they have a health issue where a mask cannot be worn. I personally have not had a single passenger not comply with this. Nor have I seen a passenger without a mask on when I commute.

The ultimate plan in Outbreak was to incinerate an entire town. Cuba and Dustin saved the day. Donald played a great as*****.

minor details. I was more referring to the beginning. They quarantined the town relatively quickly.

Better than scraping ice off your car in pitch black at 6am in 12" of snow and -2* to get to work. Eff. That. Noise.

People have not yet come to the realization that there are cameras. Everywhere. The Minneapolis police did not, the riot police do not, and this unfortunate soul did not.

I lived in the mountains for 4 years and did that. It did get to zero a few times and I used studded tires and 4x4, the whole bit. I loved living there and want to move back, especially now that I don't work and wouldn't need to commute.

So, Bah Humbug, though I thought that I was settled on getting a TF Maboroshi, I now find myself sorely tempted to pick up one of the new Konosuke Fujiyama FMs -

Also, I love how the new sharpener, Myojin Naohito, looks like he just stepped out of a Final Fantasy game.

I am continually amazed at this, but this fool saw the camera and was in such a blinding fury that the inevitable consequences meant nothing to him. It's a level of dumbass beyond even the insufferable woman in the Central Park Ramble!
