Where in the actual fuck am i supposed to get my rent money? More salient..where am I going to get grocery money? People talking so cavalierly about them just running it "another month" are scaring the fuck out of me. christ this is depressing. pray to the unemployment gods that they approve and pay me. thats all i got

Which means that all the "doctors will have to choose who lives and who dies" predictions were bang on. I don't know how you actually implement the process, but if there's an 85 year old on a ventilator and a 35 year old parent who needs to be on one, you have to make that switch.

(Related, we know a guy here who is on high/pure oxygen and I don't want to see if that means ventilator or not.)

That sucks, TT. What kind of employer were you working for? If it's a small business, they can take out a SBA loan and if they use that money to pay employees, that part of the loan will be forgiven. Are you in a position to advise them of this, so they can help you folks out?

Also, if don't have enough money to pay your rent, don't pay your rent. Though it'd be good to keep your landlord apprised of your situation (especially the fact that you got your unemployment application in). There's no way you are the only one in this situation, and the landlord has nothing to gain by going to court to try to evict you.
Excellent points. In addition to unemployment, you may qualify for Emergency Paid Sick Leave, though it's unclear if shelter at home work closure employees will qualify. The SBA loan Steve mentioned is the best option. Basically free money for employers to pay furloughed employees. New York and New Jersey have shut down the eviction process, find out if Texas has done something similar. I know banks are required to postpone mortgage payments for home owners out of work, not sure if some states have similar laws for renters out of work.

Last few nights I've had a series of nightmares - none of them are particularly virus-related but not fun. Because most of the time when I wake up, I stay up for a while.

Been up today since 5:30, taking the dog out soon.

But on the bright side, quarantine Saturdays were just made for napping.

Fuck me. I just returned from my first bike ride of the year. Feeble as hell but at least I didn’t come near anyone.

Now I have a cough.

And the new numbers show a 36% increase in positive cases in my county over yesterday. That’s the worst daily increase in weeks.

Presumably the cough is just from deeply inhaling pollen for 45 minutes. But fuck.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

But out of general curiosity - has anyone on the internets who has the cough and diagnosis but not had to be hospitalized taken the time to upload what the cough sounds like ?

From what I’ve heard it’s a pretty unique dry cough. If it’s not hurting a little to cough you’re probably OK.

I’ve heard that too - but that’s why I was wondering why there wasn’t a simple easily findable audio file of it uploaded somewhere.

Been listening in on my wife’s calls to positives. The ones that have the cough sound like shit, and I can hear that even though she isn’t on speaker. Only one so far had the runs, but he said it was non-stop. Not sure what that sounded like.

TB had it right. Old fat guy gets aerobic exercise for the first time in months.

I know the Corona cough gets really bad and painful ... but I assume it doesn’t start that way.

I've been WFH since 3/12, and thanks to remote desktop saving my credentials haven't typed in my work/domain password since probably that morning. MS Teams decided not to log me in automatically this morning and... I can't fucking remember what my current password is. I could work off the Teams app on my phone, but that's annoying and I'll eventually need the password to reset/renew anyway, so I had to debase myself by admitting this to internal IT.

Had this happen once before, years ago and with some secondary app (maybe our phone system, so I could redirect calls?) that I never accessed. Different guy this time (one of the VPs, wearing multiple hats because we're pretty small, and were even smaller back then), and he meant to reset it to "doofus2" or something like that but misspelled "doofus" as "dufuss" and I still occasionally make fun of him for that.

im just going to cut and paste the post from a pretty well known comic in houston and leave his name out to give you an idea of the kind of feelings about donations, and keep in mind that this guy is the booker for THREE rooms, so if he hates you you aren't working there...and he is by no means the only booker that feels this way.

Y’all should be ashamed of yourself for asking people for money to donate to you and most of these people on the same boat as yo ass... if you choose to do a LIVE Facebook show that’s your choice you doing that at your own risk but to charge people is fucking ridiculous... That’s my opinion and I said what I said 🤷🏾‍♂️

That's a very fucked up position to take. People aren't going to donate money they don't have to give. Not right now.

yeah, of course it is (disingenuous), as that had been established up thread. I was just pointing out that's not a very well thought out bit of bullshit.
