    RIP Austin1972 1972-2020

    I'm late to the thread, adding my condolences to family and friends. And Sail4Beer captured my thoughts. Gentleman. Rest in peace, Matt. You left too soon.

    holy fuck... beirut

    I work in the UN. I know bureaucracy. This ain't it. They'd been warned. Several times. It's not bureaucracy that stopped anything from being done about it - it was criminal negligence and dereliction of duty.

    holy fuck... beirut

    From when I worked in Beirut, I made friends. In this blast, one lost her teenaged son, another lost his wife. Many suffered structural and material damage, and almost everyone I contacted had some degree of physical injury. Horrific.

    @Ed Lada Wishing the best for you and the Mrs. Please keep your distance within the household and avoid sharing towels, utensils, etc to limit the opportunity for you to be impacted. Please keep us posted - we're all pulling for you.

    Mindless movies

    Not a movie, but the 2 seasons of Galavant are good mindless comedy.

    a terrible horrible day

    I'm so sorry. All that needs to be said has been said best by others above. Just adding my voice to the chorus, so that it's a bit louder in those tough moments, and you'll know you're not alone.

    Winning something off of Teaky's desk? Or the epic, long-ago archived Cancer thread - SA's first (and only?) safe space. There were some enduring friendships forged in those days.

    a terrible horrible day

    Adding my 2 cents .. Tell your sister. Straight up. She will never forgive your "compassionate omissions" FaceTime or WhatsApp video if you can so she can see your Mom and your Mom can hear her voice. It's possible your Mom is hanging on until she knows your sister is safely out of surgery. Especially if they're as close as you say. Get your own discomfort out of the way of two people who sound tightly connected. You'll likely be surprised how well they both handle it. All I'm hearing is your discomfort, and quite honestly that's the least important component here. That said, I'm sorry you're in the situation at all - illness during COVID sucks. Hang in there.

    "2019-nCoV"

    More news about post-infection effects https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/the-hidden-long-term-cognitive-effects-of-covid-2020100821133 I was told of a FB group for "Long Covid" as it's being called. It helps to read (albeit after the fact) that so much of what I've experienced in the past 5 months is part of a broader shared experience. I won't say Normal because nothing about this is normal. On the upside, many seem to be seeing some of their side effects reduce by around month six post-infection, if we go by stories shared on the site.

    Eyeballing it, but looks like about 3ft from the handle, to me. Isn't that the code? (smh, yes of course sarcasm font)
