Take me away, far away. If I'm not done in by this virus, then surely the eventual anger-induced cardiac event brought about by the observed stupidity of my fellow citizens will do the trick.

Per some evangelicals, if you accept Donald Trump as the appointed instrument of God you'll be raptured into Heaven at the imminent End of Days. Would that do?

 

If that's the case. Then we've been doing it wrong for most of human history.

I'd rather stumble across a sylvan portal to some fantasy world with sufficiently advanced and widespread magic. With any luck, I'll find a secluded village of kindhearted gnomes I can reside with.

I got my test back. Negative. I was on the downside of symptoms by the time I took it, and it's not an approved test, so there's a chance I had a mild case. Then again, there's a chance I didn't.

 

On the down side, I threw my back out Tuesday morning and can barely move. So, I'm missing a second week of work regardless. Going to have to burn that vacation time to make it up.

Fingers... crossed?  :think:

 

Meanwhile, we're at 70000 new cases per day, which translates to around 700 dead/day in three weeks.  Unless hospitals become overwhelmed.  Then it'll be more.

it is terrible that having a debilitating injury requires you to burn PTO if you want to feed the rest of your family while you are unable to move without intolerable levels of pain. Especially if that means you can't take that time later to get well-deserved rest and recreation or do something significant you can't do the rest of the year.

I am a Christian, who doesn't believe in that rapture.  I find a get out of jail free card for the end of days goes against the whole persevere against the testing of your faith throughout the rest of the teachings.

Aren't gnomes just ewoks without fur?

 

I might could go for this

As an aside, our family just finished reading the New Testament last week. And I have to say, there were several times in the Revelation that I couldn't help but think, "Well, this seems familiar...."

It'll take a death toll in the millions for this to be taken seriously.

I don’t think it would be taken seriously even then. 

 

It'll be taken seriously when people with millions die.  Many people with many millions.
