  1. https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/why-who-chose-omicron-not-xi-for-new-covid-variant-20211128-p59cu0.html In a statement, the WHO said it skipped Nu for clarity and Xi to avoid causing offence generally. “‘Nu’ is too easily confounded with ‘new,’ and ‘Xi’ was not used because it is a common last name,” the WHO said, adding that the agency’s “best practices for naming disease suggest avoiding ‘causing offence to any cultural, social, national, regional, professional or ethnic groups.‘”
  2. I wonder if the semi has been moved by the heavy equipment. Can't imagine no significant internal vehicle impact to the driver.
  3. A very late boomer, too late to have really taken advantage of the swinging 60s. I remember in the 60s there were lots of WW2 based movies and TV shows, like Combat, McHales Navy, etc. And that was really just 20 years after the war. Most kids dads were vets of WW2 or Korea.

  6. Unless he was reckless, relieving a skipper because of a mishap would seem to replace a guy who may have learned some new insights from experience with a guy who just hasn't managed to f it up yet.
  7. PA stuff is killing this site.
  8. A friend lost his dad on Thresher. The Thresher ball cap he gave me has a spot in my office. Sad times.

  10. You posted it in the first place.
  11. Capitol police family members would disagree.
