Coronavirus COVID-19

Vox's Explained docu series on Netflix does a good job of explaining the bird flu from the 90s. Animals and humans in close proximity that share viruses that mutate into versions that can infect humans. This sounds like a similar situation.

One more reason to stop eating meat.

I eat a plant based diet. Animals eat plants, I eat animals, thus I eat plants. It’s only logical.

While the seasonal flu is still more deadly...waaay more deadly.... no, not worried. Yet. 

Apparently, when you're infected with this one, you'll start to dance a lot.

First musically transmitted flu?

China doing things to the extreme to keep this locked down:

Since it's already outside Wuhan, that adage about closing the bar door firmly applies.

Anyway, 700 cases and 17 people dead? That's not even a rounding error when talking about the world's population.

Yeah mostly seems to be killing the frail right now.

China would be fairly used to treating these health crises by now. Even with the relative political dominance of their Communist Party, the domestic issues that government regularly has to deal with would probably send a lot of western leaders insane.

It is certainly not in the realm of Ebola, the mismanaged Sars or the recent Asian influenzas just yet.

      A lot of monthly electronic nights and special events that were coming up are now streaming rather than occurring in a live social setting. There are too many events make a dedicated topic for each one, so let's post them here and WATMM's can tune in as they happen.
      So I'll start. Vic Acid is a monthly braindance series in Victoria B.C, Canada organised by Hrdvsion. Tonight's edition is streaming now (in light of the social distancing directive) for the next few hours. Tune in here:

      So As these occur to you all just keep posting them so we can tune in during our evening Internet browsings!

      Languishing is not merely in our heads — it’s in our circumstances. You can’t heal a sick culture with personal bandages. We still live in a world that normalizes physical health challenges but stigmatizes mental health challenges. As we head into a new post-pandemic reality, it’s time to rethink our understanding of mental health and well-being. “Not depressed” doesn’t mean you’re not struggling. “Not burned out” doesn’t mean you’re fired up. By acknowledging that so many of us are languishing, we can start giving voice to quiet despair and lighting a path out of the void.

      Thomas Dolby's kids (god I feel old) created a parody song based on his 1982 song, "Europa and the Pirate Twins":
      Here's the video for the original song:
