    Favorite Album - Led Zeppelin

    Very underrated album. Achilles Last Stand is their best tune, IMO.

    New official "I contracted Corona Virus Thread"

    Thanks, guys. I'm doing well so far. I just wish I knew one way or the other whether I have it. Like I said, I've been kind of hoping I have it, but then I'll read a story about someone who had mild or no symptoms, then a few days later, they're dead.

    New official "I contracted Corona Virus Thread"

    My 24 yo daughter tested positive last week. The previous week, a co-worker of hers had symptoms, and got tested. My daughter came home on March 20th to do her laundry. I hugged her hello, and ate lunch with her at the kitchen table, and hugged her goodbye, all the while kind of joking about coronavirus. The next day, she came down with a fever and chills, and also found out her co-worker tested positive. My daughter took the test last Monday, and found out on Thursday it was positive. She's fine now, just a scratchy throat. Her live-in boyfriend went to get tested, found out he had a $100 co-pay, said screw it, and went home without getting tested. He's feeling fine, but assumes he has it, so he's self-quarantining. I have a slight scratchy throat and dry cough myself, but no fever. The wife just feels tired all the time, but no fever. If this is all it is, I'm hoping I have COVID-19, just to get it over with and get some immunity.

    I think it's time to purchase a gun :\

    Correct. The one gun I own, took less than an hour...on a Sunday.

    Who's out of a job?

    3 of my 4 kids are laid off, at least temporarily. Wife is a teacher's assistant at a local school, so she has a 3 week (at least) paid vacation. My daughter that is working had a co-worker test positive last week, so my daughter just had the test this morning, and she's on quarantine nonetheless. If she tests positive, I'll be on a 2 week quarantine since she came home last Friday to do laundry. I'm working from home 2 or 3 days a week, but it's tough to get alot done from home in my job. I work for "Big Pharma" in manufacturing, so we're an "essential" business not subjected to the 2 week shutdown that Massachusetts is implementing at noon tomorrow (if you look at the list of exempt businesses, it would have been easier if they just listed who has to shut down).
  13. Watching the Pats-Eagles 2005 Super Bowl right now. Watched a little bit of a 1990 Bruins-Whalers playoff game last night. Nice memories

    I sneezed in 7-11

    I was in Home Depot a couple of weeks ago. I'm walking down an aisle in the paint section. About 20 feet in front of me, this guy looking at one of the shelves sneezes without even trying to cover it. I could see every drop of spray spewing out of his nose and mouth. I stopped dead on my tracks and turned around. Focking loser...even without this Coronavirus, who sneezes in public without putting their arm up to their face?
