Addiction 2021.1

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I reckon it's gonna seem pretty random unless extremely thorough testing and tracking of every human (pos and neg) is performed.

Brush: synthetic badger hair (reduced badger suffering footprint, still great results)
Razor: RazorRock GameChanger .68P
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue. Wonderful blades - definitely among my favorites. 5th full shave with this particular blade - still smooth and sharp with no signs of slowing down.
Aftershave: Proraso Red
Alum Block: N/A - no nicks or weepers

I got distracted by other wuts and neglected this, but this is way too busy.

1) Lather
2) Shave
3) Get in shower

That's it, that's the process.

I've had it for years but have no trouble ignoring it even though it's gotten very loud over the years. Oddly enough, when I have my hearing aids in, I don't hear it at all.

Seriously. I might have to hunt for my face palm photo and then report myself. It would be worth it.

Got my second CV shot this morning and I'm starting to get a roaring headache same as I did after my first injection. Can the docs recommend which painkiller to use? Tylenol, Aleve, etc?

Are you sure it's because of the shot?

Query: is the discussion of aetheism (the lack of belief in a religion) a discussion of religion?

Just curious. No desire to engage in such a discussion.

schedules have a hit an all time low. First three days lately have been only one or two flights. A lot of just sitting in hotel rooms searching for a breakaway, then the last day a full schedule, which makes getting home hard. It should be reversed.

On the bright side my room has a working shower....

My wife was hit harder than I was. A short nap on the day after and I was good. Really just felt like a hangover. My wife felt worse.

I think you are right. The vaccine is supposed to help, but the demographic who are spreading the virus are not getting vaccinated.

The good news is the vulnerable people ARE getting vaccinated, so I expect the hospitalization/death numbers to not spike as much as last time.
