Sitting next to a Harley engine over a lifetime is bound to erode what little brain power those imbeciles could muster up.

I would be fine with this if they could just put up a big tent for 6 weeks around sturgis and then run exit interviews on how people felt about the virus hoax and masks.

Unfortunately though these peeps are going to ride back into communities all over the place with their super spreader beards and "angry is the new smart" attitudes.

Our government is incompetent and we rely on the general public; the majority of which you wouldn't trust to even drive a car, to pick federal representatives.

Anti-intellectualism has ruined good faith governance, there needs to be serious political reform or nothing will change.

I have many thoughts on this matter but I don't want to type a whole novel here.

Some skepticism of government is good and healthy but when its driven by anti-intellectual bias, it becomes toxic, especially in situations like these.

I'd read at least the first few sentences of your novel and form a snap opinion and spread it on social media.

Got wiped out by a couple of dogs that crashed right into my legs while running in the park, the little **** came back and licked my face clean as I was down too. Now I hope there is no swelling overnight.

I'm currently furlough'd anyway so if I get canceled I'd be in basically the same spot.

NZ have reported something like 70 cases in a cluster recently. Auckland's put back into lockdown to snuff this cluster out.

They still don't know where it came from and the man (patient 0) that contracted it did not come into contact with anyone (especially seeing as NZ has been COVID free for over 100 days).

They think it might been through a cold packing plant that brings in frozen food from the US/Canada, whereby the lowered temperatures the foods were packaged in might've harboured still-alive virus

David Crosby of Crosby Stills and Nash came into the studio to see about doing some work.
He said "play me a song", so I picked up a guitar and he said "no play Steely Dan on the big speakers, I don't want to hear your music"
hahah oh well at least he likes our work and is doing his next album with us.
