Bar Trek

A lot of actors crossed between these two franchises. In Deep Space Nine they actually wrote in a character who was a regular at the station bar, a fat alien named Morn (an anagram of Norm). They kept the tradition alive through the run of Frasier, too. In addition to Frasier’s Klingon speech, they also did this:

“Supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said that hasn’t been checked but you’re going to test it. And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way, and I think you said you’re going to test that, too. Sounds interesting. And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute, and is there a way we can do something like that? Like injection inside or almost a cleaning because, you see, it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that. You’re going to have to use medical doctors, but it sounds interesting to me.”

Let’s put it in a way they can understand. Kentucky has 4.5 million people. About 100 MAGA snowflake crybabies protested the quarantine. Quarantines are the way we do things in America. If you don’t like it, you can fucking leave. 100 people is 0.002% of Kentucky’s population. In America, 0.002% doesn’t win elections. You don’t get to decide what is good for the other 99.998% of us. If you don’t like that, again, you can fucking leave.

A butthurt conservative with very poor reading comprehension commented that these people have the right to protest. True, but irrelevant. I never said they didn’t have the right to protest. I said they were snowflake crybabies. They don’t like the way we do things here in America, and they want us to change our way of life to suit them. Well, I say if they don’t like the way we do things here, they can fucking leave. The last I heard, Turkmenistan still hasn’t reported any COVID cases. I’ll happily buy any of these whiny, un-American pussies a one way ticket, my treat. If they don’t like the way we do things in America, they need to get the fuck out.

We have plenty of hard working, patriotic taxpayers here in Kentucky. We can easily live without those 100 losers. Grocery stores and restaurants are hiring here at an unprecedented rate to meet increased demands. If they can stand long enough to walk and protest, they can fill out a job application and stock shelves or work a drive through. Instead they chose not to work. I don’t call that supporting their families. I call them parasites. If they’re too lazy to work, they can get the fuck out.

A different butthurt conservative with very poor reading comprehension commented that I was unpatriotic because I didn’t support the Electoral College’s decision. I said nothing whatsoever about the Electoral College. I don’t even know how the fuck that idea popped in their tiny, little brain. But if you think people who dislike the Electoral College are un-American, then there is some evidence to support that claim.

I have also looked through a hundred or so pictures of the protesters, and none of them have signs that mention the President at all. Not one. I don’t think there was anyone there with those signs. I did find this excellent example of the intelligence of these protesters, however. Despite her lack of spelling skills, are we to believe that a registered nurse could not find work now, during a pandemic? Bullshit.

And this non-contributor who seems to think that any old piece of random cardboard with letters on it is a good protest sign is a fine example of the kinds of people protesting. The two on the left are able to lift their arms above their heads, while the one on the right is obviously able to carry a large load on his back voluntarily. These people could literally walk into any number of grocery stores and get a job as a stock worker TODAY. The only reason they aren’t working is because they don’t want to.

Get Off Of My Cloud

Am I the only one who is genuinely going to miss the quarantine? I thought about the possibility of the governor lifting it today and my immediate reaction was sadness accompanied by the thought, “No, not yet!” I don’t think I’m done with the quarantine. The beautiful lack of traffic, the working from home in my underwear for a week at a time, the guilt free delivery of junk food, the quiet of a largely empty office, the rediscovery of the bizarre and eclectic world of eBay… and the peace. My world reminds me of The Rolling Stones lyrics, “It was so very quiet and peaceful, there was nobody, not a soul around.” I am aware that it is hard on a lot of people, and that people are sick and dying, and that business are being devastated. I’m not oblivious. And I know it eventually has to end. But in my little patch of this Earth, right now, in this moment, it’s kind of wonderful. And I can’t be the only one who wishes we could somehow just let this quarantine ride out through the remainder of the year.

I also know it’s just a matter of time before something widespread and massively idiotic happens that makes me wish we had saved a lot fewer lives. I don’t expect anyone to agree with me – in fact, I expect to be straight up excoriated for saying this – but a part of me can’t shake the feeling that the coronavirus was our chance to thin the herd of a lot of undesirables. The very people protesting and breaking quarantine for political and religious reasons are people whom I largely feel we would be markedly better off without. I’m worried the quarantine may be woking a little too well. A lot of the real shitbags that need to die are simply not doing so as quickly as, nor in the numbers that, I was hoping. When we look back and wonder how many people died during the pandemic, I’m worried that my only honest answer will have to be, “Not enough.”
