  1. I don't want to give away too much of what I do. Obviously I am an engineer and not a doctor or a nurse. But I have been working directly in the COVID response, and as an in-between among all of the associated professions. I see the front line people and hear their side. I hang out with the epidemiologists and modelers and talk projections. I talk with hospital administrators and help them put together their requests for medical supplies and equipment. I then talk to the suppliers and find out what is and isn't actually available (supply chains have been totally f'd up this whole time and don'

  2. Wife's family - Much better, almost 100% recovered Wife - About 90% or more. Has all her senses back Me - About 85%. Still some fatigue. I have some of my taste back (can taste when something is sweet. I can tell if something is salty or not, just can't tell what it is lol). I still can't smell at all. I'm slowly feeling better and better each day though. Son - No symptoms whatsoever. Been completely asymptomatic the entire time. So overall I'd say we're going great! Last week was awful. This week has been much better. I'm still under quarantine and report back to

  4. I can play this week. But we might also need to table the game until next week. I sort of expect RG to shut down the forum, or limit who can post on Thursday and Friday (due to the exams), and that tends to carry into Monday morning of the following week too. So maybe we wait until next week to play, maybe try to recruit some of the noobs that start showing up? @Dothracki won't be the FNG in a week

  8. Sorry for the late update. This government employee actually doing work, whaaaaaaat? --- The beeping in the emergency room seemed to be getting louder and louder as the time went on. "Doctor, are you sure there is nothing you can do for him?" asked @LyceeFruit PE tearfully from the visitor's chair. Their handkerchief was soaked, makeup looking completely untouched, and the air around them seemed to have some sort of Vaseline smear. In fact, only @LyceeFruit PE, the doctor (a bear with literally a stethoscope hanging around its neck), and the comatose patient @DuranDuran were

  13. Ok doubters, here is real data on total deaths in the US, by all causes. Look at this graph, explore the data on this site, If it's not COVID, tell me is it the common cold that has killed all these extra people this year? Car accidents? (and if so, why do I keep getting rebates from my insurance company supposedly due to fewer accidents this year?). A sudden surge in heart attacks caused by internet stress? Curious what your explanations might be. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm

  14. Ahhhhhh. Soap operas. They cover so many genres. I have no idea what's going on and I totally lied and did not plan anything this weekend like I said I was going to. Enjoy. --- “Don’t you understand! I loved you!” @tj_PE ripped off their apron, throwing it to the ground of the empty galley kitchen. Clean stainless steel bowls, racked after the final dinner rush, reflected them as they walked closer to the one who broke their heart. “I trusted you to be there for me, and you weren’t!” Sous chef @txjennah PE approached and laid a hand on @tj_PE’s shoulder, beginning to pul

  27. I am so glad that everyone here with professional engineering licenses can determine whether someone is an infectious diseases expert just by looking them up on LinkedIn, rather than making any effort to hear the data and studies they present!!! That is so encouraging!!! Please continue posting more articles about medical overlords!!!!!!!! Clearly I'm with the right experts!!!!!!

  28. A lot of this comes down to perspective. I don't know any of the specific people yall are taking about, but more generally so many people lack the ability to see things from any perspective but their own. I would say that the nurses and doctors on the front lines are the experts understanding the progression of the illness and treating the sick people. Epidemiologists and infectious disease experts are the experts when it comes to understanding how the disease is spread and what measures are needed to stop the spread. Those are two very different perspectives that can easily arr

  31. Just a few more additional thoughts, as we hit the 4 week mark, based on the source of all truth--superhero movies: 1. "We're in the endgame now"--Dr. Strange, Avengers: Infinity War Play time is over, ladies and gents. Things are about to get very interesting, very fast. 2. "You should have gone for the head"--Thanos, Avengers: Infinity War Remember this when you walk into the exam in a blaze of glory, brimming with power accrued from hundreds of hours of practice. Don't forget the fundamentals, and remember that portions of problems (just like normal engineering) are more impo
