Well, where did that week go? It's flown by.
Oh well, my alarm is back on, ready for the morning...
There is a
supposed hysteria around COVID-19 that people are struggling to maintain.

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.
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.
Like Yin & Yang
It was Jojo's 50th birthday at The Herbert last night. There was some costume weirdness going on...
