Stuff I said someplace else.

Hot again today. With the heat index, we made it to 101˚F. I went out back about 6 p.m., and it was still very hot. Currently, it's 84˚F, with the heat index.

Grim shit, everywhere I turn my head.

And insanity.

Anyway....stuff I posted on Facebook today:

Apparently it is becoming commonplace to refer to me as a "polymath." I suppose that I am flattered.

In 2020, our civilization has reached a point where you depend on science for, essentially, everything: the internet, medicine, entertainment, IT, food production, monetary currency, automobiles, water, energy sources, national defense, communication, travel, and the very fabric in your clothing and the materials used in the construction of buildings. But. Now you will not listen to scientists who say simply wear a lightweight cloth or paper mask to save your lives and the lives of others (and the economy and our way of life)? Your world would not exist without the fruits of scientific research, and if you fail to listen, it may not exist as you know it for very much longer. You don't get to pick and choose, America. Science is a package deal. You're either in or out. And you no longer realistically have the choice to opt out.

I all but forgot to eat today. I had half a peanut butter sandwich and a banana.
