Re: Had a coroner in my backyard yesterday

It can be anything really. My gf had a medication interaction that caused her oxygen saturation to drop to a fatal level. Almost too late before we knew anything was wrong, she wasn't completely unscathed either so the first responders were regular visitors for a while. Being in our late 20s my neighbours must have assumed we were on drugs or something.

Possibly my favorite quotes from an Re-Open America protester:

"We're living by science and data, not our constitution. That's wrong. We are not safe if we are not free."

They don't understand freedom.

Literally nothing people do surprises me anymore.

Humans are fucking stupid and you should always have the absolute lowest expectations of everyone because you'll never be disappointed or surprised.

I'm not saying you should walk around being negative with doom and gloom all the time, but you just have to expect people to be dumb, because we are.

Re: What the HELL is everyone doing right now to occupy themselves? I'm going crazy...

I hardly socialise or go out to begin with. Still at work so long as it's busy enough. Still getting out for rides, hikes and other hobbies. Gf's birthday turned out pretty nice.

Interesting thought, the virus may kill you but starvation will kill you....

Me, I gonna' become a farmer in my back yard.

What's easier, carrots or broc-holy?

Tomatoes don't last long, but in the summer if you have tomatoes and a rotating crop of lettuce you are eating fresh salad every night.  I have tomatoes, lettuce, and peppers in a raised garden on my deck where I get the most sun.  I use totes and built a wood frame to hold them.  You need holes in them for drainage.  Then I have potatoes, carrots, peas and beans in the back yard garden where I don't get much sun.  Squash grows like a weed down there too, but it takes over the whole garden so I am skipping them this year.  If you have room, grow them somewhere else.  Pumpkins are the same.  Since my daughter is not in school that will be part of her learning program.

Man I can't wait to have the space to grow some fresh veg & berries. My parents have an acreage with a small orchard and a big garden & greenhouse, it's just the best.

Re: life at home 24/7

I've been going into work, nearly caught up now. Staying home from now on until we have a better picture of the situation on Vancouver Island. I figure by the end of next week we'll know a lot more. My expenses are very low so I'll be okay.

Re: Whats your brightside POV from COVID?

Air is fresher for sure, much less visible pollution over the South coast.

Re: Shimano brakes

My XT M8000 brakes have this issue. Running genuine Ice-tech pads, 203mm rotors and mineral oil. Seems to be heat related for sure as the rear is always the first to act up. Bite point ends up too far out.

Re: do you have daughters?

Haven't had cable for a decade, sounds like I'm not missing much.
