    The movie Get Smart with Steve Carrell is a great flick.

    Today's fun language fact:. Irregardless is a word. It means "regardless "

    Definition of IRREGARDLESS

    So, irregardless of how you feel about it, people who use it are literally not wrong to do so. :)

    well, it changed it's meaning over time, due to misuse.
    Or became a word over time, as smart alecs tried to sound smart in their emails.

    Working out at 8,000 feet kicked my butt today.

    Perhaps I need beer, replenish the sweat.

    Oh wow... that sounds very difficult... I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. It's such a bizarre shifting-sands thing to try and get used to... over here is the same with the rapid changes.

    We've had massive spikes, been in the double digits for two weeks or more, and our state is very close to being the worst hit in Aus. 36 suburbs across our state capital have had to be put back into stage 3 lockdown.

    They're actually going door to door testing people in these hot spots. Over 10,000 people have refused to do the test :s

    Please stay safe.. and continue doing all the good and fun things!

    @granfire ... it has happened! ;)

    Found one at a decent price, keen to get back into it! Bought Zelda: ocarina of time, but have been looking around for pokemon games, been on the search for Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, gonna start with that and progress through the series I've missed out on. The last I played was Silver, so aLOT to catch up on[​IMG]

    Just found out last night a friend has it. She works for a correctional facility, so.... as with doctors and nurses this wasn't a matter of if but a matter of when. She's in Arizona - Phoenix area. Fortunately, the cough period had only lasted a few days. She is still running a low-grade fever. The worst of it is being tired - the fatigue is crushing. She is normally a vivacious bubbly person - but she told me she has been sleeping pretty much the entire time. She has three big dogs to take care for. They keep her company, but she's all alone and I don't know how she manages to have them walked in this condition (not to mention the hellish Arizona heat).

    Everyone, I am begging you, be safe, wear a mask, if testing is available in your area, get tested.

    Oh I'm so sorry to hear that... that's no good... hoping she'll be okay.

    And yes good reminder all to stay safe and hang in there. It's certainly not over..

    I need to get the last of the DS games. I kind of slacked.
    But you can't go wrong with the classics!
    (I loved Sapphire! some really neat features there!)
    I usually kind of fizzle out after the initial run through, unless the elgendaries are easy enough to get, I probably won't. In Emerald it was Rayquaiza. I am not sure I caught him (but I have a co-player who is more into collecting them all)

    we only just begun.
    Hubby talked to his doctor yesterday, He expects this to drag on, quite possibly for next year as well.
    So I might have to sew up them other 10 masks as well!

    It will continue until we have an effective vaccine and/or an effective treatment. It's fine and dandy to guesstimate how long that will be, but there's little or no basis on which to base such guesses. How long have we been trying to find an effective vaccine and/or treatment for the common cold?

    true, but the common cold doesn't kill off people at an alarming rate.
    It does not help that we don't have accurate numbers, never attempted (in earnest) to keep them down, and following this, we might not be able to use international data because we are breeding so many mutations.

    None of that actually has the slightest impact on our ability to develop treatments/vaccines....123
