  1. Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions happen every 20 years; the last one was in the year 2000. But these conjunctions aren’t all created equal. The 2020 great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest since 1623 and the closest observable since 1226!

    The conjunction arrives on Cephalopodmas, |Kilauea erupts |, | new plagues stalk the land | and the Mad King crouches in his chambers plotting mayhem. |

    It's not too late to purchase some | HPL Insurance. | Better hurry before that Thing on the lawn fully materializes, though.

  2. You know how I always whine that I work with idiots? (yeah, yeah, like I am not A Idiot myself…) Well one of my co-workers tested positive over the weekend for COVID. My boss just sent out an email. That nameless person is staying home until they can show they have tested negative again.

    Well fine. But his email also said that all of that person's co-workers who work in their vicinity have been sent for testing and must stay home until they show a negative test result. OK fine. but one of my co-workers who has been walking around all morning in my end of the building, I just heard her out in the hallway saying that she is not supposed to be here, that she is going home, but that she came in to take care of some paperwork for a request from a client. Then she called one of the only two other people who work in my end of the building to come down the hallway to look at something, and so I could hear her down the hallway saying, "Did the cleaning lady know to sterilize in here?" and the person from my end of the building saying, "Hmmm, I don't know." WTF?! The first person should have never have come in and possibly exposed us since she doesn't have a test result back yet, and she never should have gone near the second person, or any of us. And the second person, what the fuck? Why would she know what the cleaning lady does or doesn't do? She has nothing to do with the cleaning lady and should have told the first person to stay in her own office at least and to go home at best.

    What's more, by dragging the second person down the hall and into a specific office and pointing at a specific desk and asking if the cleaning lady knew to sterilize it, she has revealed exactly who is the person who tested positive, which should be protected health information, a private matter that the rest of the office shouldn't know about.

    This really drives me nuts. Seriously I spend a lot of time telling people here don't to this, don't do that, thank you for trying but you did this wrong, doing it wrong has consequences and possible legal action so please do it again and do it right this time. And they all gossip amongst themselves that I am a picky nuisance who should be pleased they tried at all and I should not harsh their work mojo. But this is why I do this. They are all fucking idiots. They are going to get someone killed.

    1. Good to hear from you and know you're (relatively) safe. These people drive me mad and will be the exact reason that this pandemic will linger and surge way past its time. Ideally, adults would be able to educate themselves and behave responsibly, for the good of themselves and society, but today's persistent anti-intellectualism and Libertarian selfishness makes it difficult. All the more so with the messaging from Mr. Power of Positive Thinking coming out of the Twitter machine.

      About every month or so I swear I've found the solution to the Fermi Paradox and it's always something like this.

  3. And now I just heard another person from that end of the building walk down the hallway, apparently talking into their phone, and saying mid-sentence, "well this covid-19 stuff is getting old." and then go into the office of the infected person and shut the door. Sigh.

  4. Great. Now someone has left the front door unlocked and some random person just now walked in and was asking general questions at the front counter. And then I heard him say, "I'll be right back" and he walked out the door, but did our receptionist lock the door? No. She is still sitting at her desk. Why are people out and about asking questions in person that could be answered over the phone, and why the hell did one of our idiots leave and forget to lock the front door?

    I am not kidding when I say no one here takes this seriously.

    Sen. Nancy Binay appears to shade PNP chief Debold Sinas after Tarlac double murder

    The people expect the police to be their defenders, not their offenders,” Binay said in a statement.

    “Rather than being the people’s assurance of law and order, lately, many of our cops are becoming the face of terror and impunity, blatantly disregarding the rule of law and spitting on our values.

    Reminder that if you buy an advent calendar the day after Christmas when they're heavily discounted you can now count down the 25 days until inauguration day with chocolate.

      (perhaps our souls are being devoured as we speak, but the process is so slow and stupid that we don't notice)
