  • Coronavirus / COVID-19

    One thing Covid has shown me is how little self control the average person has, all over the world and particularly in the U.S. All it takes is a little restraint to be safe and only make essential trips, but so many people either don't care or lack the willpower to make safe choices. Following some simple rules shouldn't be that hard. It explains why most people in the U.S. don't have anything saved for retirement and are compulsive buyers of anything that costs money. Just to be clear I'm not trying to point the finger at anyone, I'm talking about seeing this from people in my family and my wife's family who are for the most part pretty normal people. Going to weddings, eating out at restaurants, refusing or complaining about masks, etc. 

    I really fear what the holidays hold for us, because most people seem to be acting like things are fairly normal. It seems to be true that the majority of U.S. people won't act responsibly until they either die or know someone who dies. Even then it's no sure guarantee, a family member kept saying these deaths are no worse than the flu and people dying from it would have died due to other reasons any way. So who knows, maybe even if a close family member dies they'll convince themselves it was for whatever conspiracy theory is out there. 

    The whole thing has really made me disappointed in humanity.

  • Gattaca (1997) - Spoilers!

    I haven't listened to the pod yet, but this is one of my all time favorite movies. Thanks for commissioning it! 

    One of the lasting images I remember from the movie:

    So, I'm somewhat satisfied that the Rays are beating up on Houston, but at the same point I hate the Rays. So double edged sword, at least one team I hate will play in the World Series.

    This is real painful, but gotta admit it's one helluva at bat. Can't take anything away from the guy, he won that game.

    Super excited about Yankees and Rays game five. Pitchers going on short rest, lots of hate between the two teams, mostly tight games so far. Should be fun.

    I hope whoever wins goes on to destroy the Astros.
