They especially love the bugs that live in cow poop.

Haven't been in a movie theater in years. I can count the number of concerts I've been to in my lifetime on one hand. I really hate crowds, always have.

Not so sure about restaurants. Will depend on which one and how much space they provide. For now, carryout is just fine. My last road trip was just as the shutdowns were starting so I avoided all restaurants - I was in the land of the Waffle House. That made me sad to have to pass on their breakfast offerings.

I do miss my fitness center. Mine has plenty of space and at the time I go, there aren't a lot of people there. For now, outdoor activity is fine, but come the dark and cold winter mornings, it will become a major issue to get outside before work. I also miss the weight machines like leg press and lat pulldown. I also miss the variety of hand weights. My 5 lb and 8 lb dumbbells aren't doing the job - I borrowed them from my lab at work. Not feeling the desire to invest in workout equipment for what I hope is just a few more months away from the fitness center.

Not sure when we will be back on campus. I'm having some anxiety about meeting with random students in my very small and poorly ventilated office. So far the video options are working out okay for doing advising. I am having much more anxiety about doing cardiopulmonary exercise testing in our lab with the students when we do return to campus. I've raised this issue with administration as they are looking at all aspects of bringing students back to campus.
I see people with biking cardio workout as very low risk of infection.
I was getting off my bike a few hours ago to enter a convenience store for a sammie. A woman came out and commented on biking, ("I should really get mybike out and ride") She had a heart transplant 12 years ago. She is at risk because impaired immune systems. She blamed genetics.

Unfortunately, infectious disease has always overwhelmingly affected the poor and disenfranchised.

While the virus may not care about someone's race or SES... the people pointing the virus at them certainly know what they were doing over the decades and decades of disenfranchisement.

We're thankfully doing okay in Jersey. Work was pretty hellish for a couple of months there. I really feel for my colleagues who are being forced into a situation that was completely avoidable because people decided to politicize a public health issue instead of pay attention to experts that spend their lives training for a situation like this.

Agreed!

In my defense, it was chicken finger at popeyes that I dropped on the table that had just been wiped down.

Huge line to get in, and everyone had to sanitize their hands before entering.

Not sure what the post above is trying to prove.

Are you saying that someone can't be smart or educated and be experts in their field because of what they look like?

When you have to explain the joke, it loses its punch!
