Here is the COVID mortality thread:

and here is the general mortality trend thread:

I find it odd y’all are putting this stuff in here.

Well, it’s where the discussion was. Plus it’s one of the few threads where anything is pretty much on-topic. :laughing:

True enough, but if y’all have something substantive to say, it would be nice if you added to the other threads…

Now don’t start making requirements like “substantive”. If you did, I’d never post. :grinning:

Let me re-word – there are some substantive posts up above that would be really good in those other threads…

…but let me see if I can quote/place them in those threads and see what happens.

Okay, I tried it here, and you can see what it looks like:

Oh wow - clicked on the down arrow to open it up… woo.

now I have a different idea…

From the sublime to the ridiculous

Listening to a performance of Nutcracker Suite and singing the Smurfberry Crunch commercial song.

I bought new socks because I’m wearing shoes less often.

I had committed to buying more socks but got cold feet

I actually often wear my shoes while I work because it keeps my feet a bit warmer than just socks

As long as we have the heat on I don’t worry about wearing shoes or socks. I even take out the trash in flip-flops - a couple minutes of cold air on my feet aren’t worth the effort of putting on shoes and socks.

Got an ad on my Facebook stream that renting a private jet is finally affordable!!! Made me think of somebody… :face_with_monocle: :tophat: :moneybag: :man_office_worker:



And I got a blast e-mail for Ritz-Carlton yacht vacations. :dolphin: :tophat:

AO Fan’s furniture thread made me think how badly the office furniture rental business must be suffering.

I have various friends whose main customers were businesses… for example, one guy’s big thing was white boards (and their frames) which took a hit with offices getting closed… then he found he was selling a lot of the frames w/o white boards… various orgs were putting the clear plexiglass in the frames. So he started selling plexiglass + the frames.

Lots of interesting changes going on…

I forgot about that guy… does Brazil block GoActuary?
