Spam killer run.
|20200406 18:50||Deacon Blues||I found out that running from the police is not considered social distancing.|
|20200406 18:45||Alaska Paul||Deacon---If you were royalty, we would properly address you as Your Fecalness, heh.|
|20200406 18:35||Deacon Blues||The kid I hired to pick up the poop in my yard just realized I don't have a dog. Out of TP|
|20200406 08:29||Deacon Blues||Gonna ask my Momma if that offer to slap me into next year is still on the table.|

|20200405 16:55||trailing wife||Pollen? It’s coming in to pollen season, here in Cincinnati — Mr. Wife’s allergies are starting to change over from the molds and mildews of early spring. So based on this we should start seeing a fall in infections at the south end of the state|
|20200405 16:35||3dc||Think sticky particulates:|
Waiting for a friend from Chevron to post his analysis of aerosols of virus like this one. It's wild.... BTW best thing NYNY could do is park smoky diesel buses on the street filling the air with diesel particulates . Pollen is also good. Inside candles burning is good.
The particles have too much surface tension to vaporize and are too small to be stopped by HEPA filters. The clue was stewardesses getting the virus on long distance air trips. The air on planes is too dust free and clean so the virus makes it through the filters.
BTW he is one of the top industry experts on filters and aerosols. Works at big Chevron plant in Houston. Aerosols and filters including masks are among his specialties.
In order of help least to best:
2) burning candles
4) Diesel exhaust without CO.
along with HEPA filters and facemasks.
|20200405 13:49||Frank G||He does them mid-week as well|
|20200404 19:25||Dave D.||I look forward to reading Steven Hayward's The Week in Pictures feature over on PowerLine every Saturday. I haven't missed a one since he started. Fantastic!|
|20200404 14:15||SteveS||Seen over at PowerLine:|
All countries got Coronavirus eventually, but China got it right off the bat.
|20200403 22:55||trailing wife||Varmint Splat, I looked for you here in the O Club, but you didn’t post. Shall we try again?|
|20200403 12:21||Dave D.||House arrest, shelter-in-place, quarantine... not much difference methinks.|
|20200403 09:59||Deacon Blues||Word of the day: beholden. After work I like to beholden a beer.|
|20200403 09:34||Deacon Blues||People who are just now getting off house arrest are probably really pissed off now.|
|20200401 14:50||Alaska Paul||Good to see you up again, Badanov.|

|20200401 12:27||Alaska Paul||Congradulations, Grandpa Glenmore! I have six grandchildren, and one more scheduled for June.|
|20200401 12:26||Alaska Paul||On the malaprop front:|
"I love you more than life itself," she said with a voice full of emulsion.
|20200401 10:32||Deacon Blues||I thought you already were, AP.|
|20200331 17:35||Frank G||Congrats!|
|20200331 15:42||Glenmore||I am a grandpa again!|
|20200331 11:35||Alaska Paul||May I join the Society of the Dubble Meaning now?|
|20200331 10:10||Deacon Blues||Love it, AP!|
|20200330 19:59||SteveS||> "Is anyone in the O-Club considered to be corrigible? |
If corrigible/incorrigible is one of those deals like flammable/inflammable, then the answer is yes. If not, then the answer is yes.
|20200330 19:12||Alaska Paul||What happens when you eat too many spaghetti-o's? You have a vowel movement.|
|20200330 19:09||Alaska Paul||Good one, Deacon? How about this?|
A scarecrow says, "This job isn't for everyone, but hay, it's in my jeans."
|20200330 17:40||Skidmark||Well, the aquarium pump concept was good but the pilot failed to launch.|
I found a recipe for hand sanitizer at the liquor store today and it looked so good, well without the soap, I thought "why waste it on hands!"
Bong breathing is now in the concept workshop.
|20200330 17:29||Deacon Blues||I ran out of toilet paper and began using lettuce. That's just the tip of the iceburg. Results romaine to be seen.|
|20200330 17:23||Dave D.|
"Is anyone in the O-Club considered to be corrigible? I yam doing a survey."
If I were corrigible I wouldn't have stuck around here for 18 years.
|20200330 17:02||Deacon Blues||I wanted to go to Wal Mart and was told all I needed was a face mask and gloves. They lied. I needed clothes, too.|
|20200330 16:04||Alaska Paul||Like Jimmy Durante used to say, "Everybody wants to get into the act!!"|
|20200330 08:46||Deacon Blues||As they say around here, it's a compelshun.|
|20200330 03:40||Grunter||I’m corrugated and corruptible.|
|20200330 03:30||Skidmark||Ah'm inflammable...|

|20200329 18:08||Alaska Paul||Glenmore---population densities in epidemiology seem to be analogous to cross sections in fission (nuclear physics).|
|20200329 11:13||Glenmore||Got to looking at the data on this Wuhan Flu & a couple of things came to mind. 1) Despite what people keep saying, the growth rate cannot be exponential, because there is a limit to its growth - the growth rate must eventually fall as the total population gets infected. 2) It reminds me of nuclear fission reaction - needs a high enough population density for a virus particle (neutron) to interact with a vulnerable person (fissionable atom); thus the higher growth rates in places of higher population densities (cities, especially public transit focussed cities) , especially vulnerable population densities like nursing homes, Italy and Iran.|
|20200328 10:22||Dave D.||I like being incorrigible. It feels good!|
|20200328 10:00||trailing wife||You lot are incorrigible. :-) |
|20200327 19:59||Dave D.|
I value tradition, Deacon, so I'm staying on the same end of the couch I've always sat on.
|20200327 19:40||Glenmore||I see some 9000 retired medical personnel have responded to the call for assistance; as retired commissioned officers couldn't they be called back to active duty involuntarily? Or is that what they mean was done?|
|20200327 17:54||Deacon Blues||I promised myself I would do things differently today so I'm sitting on the other end of the couch.|
|20200326 20:21||Skidmark||It's all based on body demand and lung capacity|
This device is NOT FDA certified nor Rantburg recommended.
But it will give one overpressure @3000cc of air/min for $14.00. Just about the trickle of O2 one gets from a nose tube. If you add nose tubes.
X-peer-I-meant underway, if you don't hear from me. I may require more air than a bubblestone.
|20200326 19:56||Skidmark||Here are some specifications on a CPAP fan, Skidmark.|
Sufficiently vague specifications, AP.
|20200326 19:24||Alaska Paul||Oh Gawd, Deacon, yer killin' me!|
|20200326 16:47||Deacon Blues||I just noticed two large bumps on my car battery so I had it tested. One came back positive. I hope it's not terminal.|
|20200326 16:44||Deacon Blues||Finland has closed it's border. No one is allowed to cross the Finnish line.|
|20200326 16:34||Deacon Blues||I tried making hand sanitizer. It came out as jello shots.|
|20200326 09:44||Deacon Blues||Good one, Steve S!!|
|20200325 15:11||Glenmore||"It is just a matter of time before congress critters all come down with the disease." |
You say that like it's a bad thing...
|20200325 13:10||Deacon Blues||The pundemic will continue.|
|20200325 13:08||Deacon Blues||I ran out of toilet paper so I started using old newspapers. The Times are tough.|
|20200325 10:17||Deacon Blues||Lincoln described how democrats used to place the blame on republicans: “a highwayman holds a pistol to my ear, and mutters through his teeth, ‘Stand and deliver [give me your money], or I shall kill you, and then you will be a murderer!’”|
|20200324 18:58||Deacon Blues||What do clouds wear under their clothes? Thunderpants|
|20200323 18:10||Alaska Paul||However, Skidmark, I think that a muffin fan will do the trick. Occam's razor and all that.|
|20200323 18:06||Alaska Paul||Here are some specifications on a CPAP fan, Skidmark.|
|20200323 01:37||Skidmark||AP, I was thinking to funnel-up the fan on my PC because I spend so much time here, then a 3/8 hose on the funnel throat to my nose.|
Anybody on a sleep apnea compressor already has a solution.
|20200320 18:16||Skidmark||I must be hungover.|
Ah've got a angry, apathetic cloud in my head.
|20200318 07:47||trailing wife||Good morning, all! Welcome to the first Wednesday of The Distancing.|
