    Rode the hell out of it this afternoon.

    I am. And I agree. Idk how I went from being able to manage large 12 international datacenters remotely to managing one thats smaller than 1/6 of 1 of the aforementioned datacenters and I can only get 2 days a week at home starting next week. That among other reason is why I'm trying to leave this place. It's just not what I'm looking for in a place where I want to stay for 10+ years.

    Corona isn't Trump's fault. Ebola wasn't Obama's. SARS wasn't Bush's and only a handful of cases of herpes were Clinton's

    So...old guy here in the high-risk age group just vegging at home adhering to the social distancing guidelines when the ancient, dusty memory of a kids jingle we used to sing on the school bus to torture the poor driver popped into my head as a didactic metaphor describing the situation we find ourselves in. If you're as old as me, you'll remember it: "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. I don't know why she swallowed a fly. Perhaps she'll die. "There was an old lady who swallowed a spider that wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside 'er. She swallowed the spider to catch the fly, but I don't know why she swallowed the fly. Perhaps she'll die. "There was an old lady who swallowed a bird. She swallowed the bird to catch the spider...." on ad nauseum, ad infinitum, until she actually dies. Great little kid's ditty! So, we find ourselves in a world-wide pandemic that began as an isolated case of a novel virus from a relatively small city in rural China and rapidly progressed to country-wide lockdowns in Italy, Spain, Ireland, France, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, El Salvadore, and likely soon to include the US with increasingly draconian measures that threaten not just the world's economy but the social fabric of the human race.... ...ALL BECAUSE SOME DAMN CHINAMAN ATE A BAT! To quote the infamous line from The Big Lebowski: "This is what happens, Larry...."

    Just found it funny because in less than a decade we went from "it's illegal you will go to jail" to "it's essential" no problems with that just struck me funny.

    I read this morning that the number they're batting around now is a one-time payment of $1,200 per person. Wife and I don't need the money, so we will likely just cash out and keep it as cash on-hand for now. Parenthetically, I think Mike DeWine has been doing a marvelous job managing the many moving parts involved in this crisis. He is humble and personable, and has shown a warm sense of humor amid all the concerns COVID has caused.

    Now might be a good time to buy stock in cruise companies. Carnival dropped from about $60 to around $10/share.
