OK - but we all know the younger you are the more shit your life will be.Generational politics are the worst divide and conquer tactics going.
Yah, lots of "they're just doing it for a day off school" haha.OK - but we all know the younger you are the more shit your life will be.
i know 'cause i'm older then you.
e.g. last October at the height of Boris Johnson acting like a dictator and
Trump doing a great job (of being a prick). I was surprised the amount of retired
folks i met that were criticising Greta Thunberg and the youth climate activists
purely on the grounds of their age.
was stunned anyone would buy into that.
i pointed out lots of kids were famous for acting, dancing and singing to no avail.
Interesting!Austria are talking about relaxing their lockdown measures
I am a little bit too, though tbh I think it's mostly cos we have an extra person staying in the house - Mrs. egg_'s sister, who is lovely and great with our kids and helps out with the housework and all, but still ... just having an extra person around all the time is a bit of a strain, I findI'm going fucking stir crazy in all honesty.
Sweet, dessert is one of my favourite thingsBoris very well might die and that could be a big deal if it happens we may subsequently see the end of Trumps office also and enter some sort of post Corona economic dessert we ourselves are still early into this thing so the next couple of weeks will be crucial.
It sounds like maybe Austria have a good health service and haven't spent the last 10 years telling it to go and fuck itselfInteresting!
"Health Minister Rudolf Anschober said that the country's doubling rate of confirmed cases fell from 3.6 days in mid-March to 16.5 days last week." I guess that's why
Austria are doing considerably better than us, proportional to population, on death rates btw. If you look here Coronavirus Update (Live): 1,287,465 Cases and 70,558 Deaths from COVID-19 Virus Outbreak - Worldometer you can sort by 'deaths per million population'. We're not doing that great on that measure (about 10th in the world, if you exclude the tiny countries) - a little worse than the US, though WAY better than the UK
Look I know its a shock and whole change of life and all that jazz and basic civil liberties and a grand neglect of level 3-5 on the old Maslow scale.Same. Today was bad.
Dude seriously?Look I know its a shock and whole change of life and all that jazz and basic civil liberties and a grand neglect of level 3-5 on the old Maslow scale.
Considering it is temporary, maybe a year, maybe less do take into consideration that for a lot of people with disabilities in the chronic pain region (LIKE ME FOR EXAMPLE) this is what life is like for months or years at a time. I'm sailing through iso because it is essentially a more liberal version of what my day to day life was like intermittently from age 25 - 34* - I have twice as much money as I did then - disabilty benifit is inline with dole in Ireland generally with a few 'perks' - Like half a million people were just put on covid dole at basically twice what disabilties are expected to live off for life - but stuff like being in the house for 14 days straight, not going to the shop because it could land you in bed for a day, avoiding the world at large - that is all very very normal for chronic pain types. Add in that normally you are in iso and nobody else is in iso so you've got sexy young people** skipping past your window every day enjoying life to the full without a care in the world.
* essentially till accupuncture
**people your own age too
Sure, it is hard, a huge change in life, a pause that is tricky, but maybe just take a bit of it as an opportunity to gain an education about how a huge portion of the country live thier entire lives - this is a temporary trip for most people.
Well yeah I left out the part about being either in pain or exhausted or a combination of both most of the time but pretty much.Dude seriously?
I dunno man, it reads like something Jordan Peterson or Steven Pinker would say. Like, i'm sure Bernie doesn't give a fuck but COME ON, we shouldn't have to hack our limbs off to be allowed feel a bit shit.Well yeah I left out the part about being either in pain or exhausted or a combination of both most of the time but pretty much.
I did get very good at fingerstyle in fairness.
And look honestly, I'm just pointing it out here because the citizens of thumped are actually reasonable enough to take on information and give it a chin stroke or two. I wouldn't go near the wider social media circles with a post like that. wouldn't be worth it. I'm very much not saying that if you are having a tough time with iso that you can't talk about it on thumped - Its a great outlet for this mad experience and don't let my level upping discourage you, Its just what I think when I scroll through the likes of twitter these days. Those pricks really piss me off with their camradarie wolk off. There wont be any fucking video/zoom parties for the spoonies* once this stupid virus fucks off.
*i hate this term but am using it for brevity
