Wonder where I'll be in a year?

Probably be sittin’ right here.

With apologies to Roger Clyne for biting his lyrics.

Others have noted there are a ton of “doom and gloom” posts here. Coronavirus. The economy. Politics in general. What’s a critical thinker to do?

I wonder just how much credence to give many of the posts that begin with “I’m an RN in XXXXX, and here’s what happened today”. Just as I’m not going to take any medical advice from a speaking orange anus that appears on my lawn in front of a helicopter and rants on my television from time to time, I’m also going to weigh 100% of the stuff that finds its way onto my computer monitor from an opinion board on the web. I’d urge everyone else to do the same, lest we become as unfortunate as the gent who mixed up a teacup full of aquarium cleaner in attempt to fend off the virus.

Read all of the posts that you like here. Take every one with a generous pinch of salt. For certain, don’t take ANY medical advice you get here, nor ANY legal advice you get here. There’s a reason to be concerned, and yes you should act accordingly. Don’t overreact. Especially because of what someone has posted here.
