Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
Now is the winter of our discontent etc
Should be good fun
I'm staying at home and if I see friends, it's outside, fairly brief and socially distanced. Take care.
Our company is working from home which is rather pleasing other than my Wife going bananas from time to time over every tiny infringement
;-) My sympathy.
I live by myself in large house with a fast computer and satellite TV. Bliss.
We have been married for 36 years and for most of that we met every 3 weeks or less when I could get home .
It is generally OK but from time to time she throws a wobbly and more importantly can remember things from 36 years ago
Spanish Flu, that was the name in 1918. Why are now people, especially whitey millennials, so squeamish about Chinese Flu/Wuhan Flu (COVID-19)?
Because the Spanish Flu did not originate in Spain. US soldiers spread it.
And Covid 19 has always been the name. It was never changed to Covid or Coronavirus FROM the China Flu to be politically correct. Calling it the China Flu or Wuhan Flu, or Kung Flu is doing so JUST to be a dick.
And a stupid dick at that, given it is NOT a flu.
Not unlike the idea of giving hurricanes or typhoons names ?
Actually quite different.
Diseases are named through scientific process.
Storms are named by looking at which level of the alphabet you're up to and picking up a baby names book.
