Good morning. Starting of with this nugget of news:
Now for the cartoons:
Also, check this out:
This is an open thread.
Morning…that Luckovich 3am cartoon is damn good. Be safe today.
And so it begins:
This thread about monkey pox is something to read:
I don’t know if all this is true…but it makes you wonder…
Yes. Live virus occurs in saliva. So it can spread by _droplet_ infection. Meaning fairly large particles that are too heavy to go more than a few feet before falling to the ground. (Where they would still be infectious, if you touched the ground for some reason.) It apparently does _not_ spread by aerosols, so being more than 6ft away from someone on public transport would be pretty much safe. Masks and eye protection like glasses would help a lot more than they do for covid (although even for aerosol transmission like covid, masks protect the wearer quite a bit).
So none of that is wrong. Monkeypox is spread by close contact. Including sex. Not limited to sex. And not limited to any particular kind of sex.
The thing about the gay community, at least this was true in the old HIV days, is that once they’ve understood that a practice can spread disease, they change it. Not like some non-mask-wearers I could mention.
Rest in Power my childhood role models!!!
Oh no. I know. Nobody lives forever, etc etc. But some people should!
I am ashamed to the same species as this man:
What a POS
Well, there’s a third now:
Damn, I’m tired of all these people I’m so fucking fond of dying left and right…they are dropping everywhere!
Two giants gone:
I loved Nichelle Nichols… my parents were trekkies when I was little and one of my first memories is being in a stroller and seeing her at a convention. She had that much of an effect on me… I was out most of the day, but when I came home and found out she had passed…it was very upsetting.
Two shining stars. Never saw either of the be anything but ALL CLASS through and through. Mary Alice also just passed. SHe didn’t quite have the star poer of the other two but she was a fine lady nonetheless.
There is no bottom to the smoldering burn pit that is Donald Trump.
Now he attacks the effort to exchange Britney Griner for some Russian crook.
Couldn’t be because she is a black lesbian woman could it?
She is a member of three groups that he hates and that his base will reward him for hating publicly.
Oh and she is a star athlete, another group that pushes his jealousy button.
What a dog turd he is.
