Week Off

Well, where did that week go? It's flown by.

Oh well, my alarm is back on, ready for the morning...



Irrational

There is a supposed hysteria around COVID-19 that people are struggling to maintain.

Panic-buying toilet rolls and then attending professional sporting events in a crowd of tens of thousands of people is not rational...

However, I'm glad to see some sense taken by the Formula 1 sport in banning live spectators from the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Sad

Kim put out pots of Hand Sanitiser and the sign below on her Burger Van last night. All the hand sanitiser was stolen before Midnight. How sad are these people?

This has made me angry and disappointed

Disappointed in fellow humans

My disappointment with my fellow humans was deepened when I went to do my weekly shop.

  • The shelves of Toilet Rolls were empty, yet the shelves of Tissues were full.
  • The shelves of Hand Sanitiser were empty, yet the shelves of soap were full.

And then I overheard a woman say that they should buy vodka (the selves were almost empty) because "Alcohol kills coronavirus". 40% alcohol solution will only get coronavirus, or any other microbe, drunk. And you don't want coronavirus on a drunken rampage, do you?

Oh, and 80 proof doesn't equal 80% alcohol by volume (ABV), it equals 40% ABV. Morons.



Tupac Lives

Deepfakes have been around for a while now and they are getting better. The video below shows how a deepfake was made of Tupac Shakur, who died in 1996, rapping in 2020 alongside Snoop Dogg. You may not like rap music and you may not care for the language and marijuana use, but the technology is fascinating.
