If scanning, just check out 3:11 and forward for views of cleared out cities. They show a New Jersey mall; an L.A. highway; Bourbon Street, N.O.; Times Square; Chicago's Bean; and the Vegas Strip. I'm glad I'm not an extrovert ;D

It's getting wacky. With everyone/everything shutting down, definitely have to worry about how sustainable this will be economically. A lot of people will have trouble making rent at the end of this month, and it'll only get worse from there.

The video keeps repeating over and over at the beginning.. apparently it's because they were showing the difference between the body camera footage versus the pistol camera's footage.
..Had to skip to 15:17 to see the aftermath. Emotional group hug at 20:20. Camera set down at 23... looks like it trails off. Skipping to 33 minutes, they talk about the damage to the suspect, including a broken femur from a bullet wound.

From the YouTube description:
"In mid-February 2020 a jury found Orellana guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public official, a level one felony in Texas. Orellana was sentenced to 40 years in prison, with a minimum of 20 years served before he is eligible for parole. Moreover - per Corporal Session - Orellana has yet to face his charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child, indecency with a child and aggravated sexual assault of a child. That 20 year minimum could get much longer. Session and Orellana have both recovered from their injuries."

Got the email earlier today that a coworker had covid. But by now I've been away from the office since the 13th, so I'm either probably fine or wasn't infected.

Hopefully you'll be okay! D: That should be a long enough time period since exposure.. No symptoms? You haven't had to go back?

No infections at my work, but every time my throat or nose feels dry, I start wondering myself :|

..
I can't find a source for this one:
(Tim Hortons customer spraying a coffee cup with disinfectant... while the cup sits on the drive-thru window sill..)
http://imgur.com/gallery/BjE7rKV
He seems to be smiling a little, maybe thinking it to be a joke or funny.. at first, anyways (audio would clarify).. But he just keeps going..

Comments brought up that he touches the cup while rotating it, but that wouldn't be an issue (he'd be touching sanitizer). More stupid would be the excessive spray coverage and his willingness to inconvenience the workers with his antics. He also does that gross customer drive-thru behavior of just dumping out excess coffee onto the ground in front of the window. I understand *why* people do it (to avoid spills in the vehicle and/or make space for creamer), but it's poor form...

I went back the next Monday for about 30 minutes to get the docking station for my laptop because the charger mysteriously disappeared. But I was never within 10 feet of anyone. And even that has been 10 days at this point.


That weekend, the 13th-15th, I was a wee bit dizzy, the "I'm ever so slightly sick" kind of dizzy. But I had no other symptoms of any illness, let alone covid ones.

A woman’s so-called “prank” cost a Scranton, Pa., supermarket $35,000 on Wednesday when she purposely coughed all over the store’s produce and on parts of the bakery and meat case, forcing them to throw all the contaminated merchandise away.

“Today was a very challenging day,” Gerrity's Supermarket co-owner Joe Fasula wrote on Facebook.

According to Fasula, the woman responsible was known by police to be “a chronic problem in the community.” Though they do not believe that she was actually infected with coronavirus, out of an abundance of caution they worked with the local health inspector to get rid of everything she coughed on. After getting her out of the store and contacting authorities, over 15 employees worked to clean and disinfect the areas she visited.

A man in Missouri has been charged with making a terrorist threat in the second degree after filming what was, at best, a very bad joke about the coronavirus.

The Warren County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Cody Lee Pfister, 26, on Tuesday after he posted a video of himself licking merchandise inside a Walmart, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.


Pfister — whom the Post-Dispatch reports has quite a rap sheet, including burglary and driving while intoxicated — “knowingly caused a false belief or fear that a condition involving danger to life existed,” court documents state, according to the Post-Dispatch. He also acted “with reckless disregard of the risk causing the evacuation, quarantine or closure of any portion” of Walmart.

my father took the plunge into Facebook & needed my assistance

i guess he managed to create an account on his own, but when trying to log in it claimed there was suspicious activity or something and demanded his mobile # to send a code (no option to skip)... plus demanded it in the specified format (w/ no specified format) which after some attempts was just the numbers all in a row (no punctuation)

then it demanded a photo of his face, claiming also a security measure... then it wouldn't let him log in until his submission gets reviewed

crazy!

i assume they are emptying his bank accounts or something

Same! Companies like Google and Facebook have really upped their demand for personal data. You'd think they'd calm down after privacy complaints, but no.. It's difficult to even make a new Gmail account if you don't give them your cell phone number. They just want more data points to mine..

People seem to be handling the constant policy changes well ;)

I wonder if it's an issue with information release in a post-cable news age? Most people get their info from online, but some of these .gov websites have awful organizational standards, so it can be difficult to find out reliable information.. and then the info changes. Hulu started offering free access to ABC News Live, but ABC does random special interest stories and stuff, so it's not like it's dedicated COVID-19 coverage.

I'd heard from co-workers that there's a mask order here, but finding the info from the .gov source required some digging. I went for routine groceries yesterday, and it looks like all shoppers were wearing masks, so it's normalized. We were already wearing masks at work — this was just the first time I'd been in public in a few weeks..

..
Can't remember if I posted this...

A few comments were blaming "women drivers", but, umm.. this was in the UK, so the steering wheel is on the right side, and the driver was balding with a beard.. so... :p

lulz. Someone in the comments posted this video showing cats using "direct registering", wherein they place their back paws in the locations where their front paws leave:

This was shown in part on the last John Oliver.. a sort of follow-up to penguins exploring an aquarium:

Onion pushed a 2012 article back to their front page as a subtle, "We told you so" ;D

"Scientists: ‘Look, One-Third Of The Human Race Has To Die For Civilization To Be Sustainable, So How Do We Want To Do This?’"
[Onion, Full Article; January 26th, 2012]
http://www...uman-race-has-to-di-1819573235
"“Hopefully, the people who remain on the planet will use the mass slaughter of their friends and loved ones as an incentive to be more responsible going forward,” he added."

lol. That's some kind of GTA stunt bonus, I think ;D

"... the car's tires."

I know, right? They had 4–5 minutes to think of things like that, but nope. No one slashed the tires, no one was able to break the window, no one thought to box him in... He ended up just getting bored ;p

Yikes... he couldn't even operate it in the first place, so that wasn't heading anywhere good ;p

"home invaders shot at"

Outright forced entries like that can be worrying... Glad that it turned out well >:p
