covid-19, pandemic 

After talking to @smarimc and thinking about it a bit, one metric importance became obvious: days-to-herd-immunity.

Here's a decent explanation:

So it's all about slowing down the spread. How much?

hey, remember Orkut? this is a song that TV's Spatch, an internet acquaintance and (at the time) fellow Orkut fan, recorded and sang waaaaay back in... 2004?

covid19 reminder 

hey if you're worried about corona and are trying to self quarantine and stay home and all that stuff, just remember - you can go outside and like enjoy the outdoors still. it's not like disease is floating through the air. get out, get some vitamin d and read a book or something. make some lemonade or some iced tea and enjoy the sun. forget about the state of panic and all that, because you can still *exist*. just watch yourself around others and leave if you feel uncomfortable.

I just remembered that when it was time for me to shake hands with my new bike repairman, he turned it into a pinky swear.

then I had to ask myself sternly if I was making up this memory. but no! he extended his pinky and I "shook" it!

i'm going to give up the domain after 19 years. does anyone want it for free (you pay your own domain registrar for the transfer ofc)?

starting to think that my neighbors are actually worried about me because sometimes when I'm stretching really profoundly, joints cracking, things realigning, I yell MOTHERFUCK!!!!!

I kind of feel bad now

People take pictures of each other
And the moment can last them forever
Of the time when they mattered to someone
