That is basically what we've been doing (the gloves and mask part) but thankfully I ordered a UV-C lamp a while ago, so outside stuff gets put under the lamp for a couple of hours.

A plane has five passengers on board: Donald Trump, the Pope, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Hillary Clinton, and Greta Thunberg

The plane is about to crash and there are only 4 parachutes.

Dr Fauci: “I need one! I have to help develop a cure for the global health crisis that is Covid-19!”
He takes one and jumps.

The Pope: “I need one! I have to help spiritually guide people through the global health crisis that is Covid-19!”
He takes one and jumps.

Donald Trump: ‘‘I need one! I’m the smartest man in the USA!”
He takes one and jumps.

Hillary Clinton says to Greta Thunberg, "You take the last parachute. My public life is over and yours has only begun.”

Greta Thunberg: "Don’t worry, there are two parachutes left. The smartest man in the USA took my backpack."

A plane has five passengers on board on the day before Election Day: Donald Trump, the Pope, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Glenn Greenwald and Joe Biden.
The plane is about to crash and there are only 4 parachutes.

Dr Fauci: “I need one! I have to help develop a cure for the global health crisis that is Covid-19!”
He takes one and jumps.

The Pope: “I need one! I have to help spiritually guide people through the global health crisis that is Covid-19!”
He takes one and jumps.

Donald Trump: ‘‘I need one! I’m the smartest man in the USA!”
He takes one and jumps.

Glenn Greenwald secretly hides the last parachute and gives Joe Biden his backpack, then jumps with the last remaining parachute so that he can survive and scream at everyone for being neoliberals while Trump enjoys a second term and then names himself President For Life.

Poor Biden. He should have drove one of those ‘vehicles of change’ instead of flying.

i'm working from home. Have to "check-in" hourly via a Google Doc and input what I did the previous hour. Have a daily department conference call at 11:30 a.m. I have to send my manager a "good morning" and "good evening" email when I start work and end work.

I'd rather be back at the office, thanks.

Well, I'm going to be more active, now, as I just got banned from that "other" place. Yeah, me. Rational, humorous, even-keeled, little old me.

What were you banned for, having actual thoughts? Using facts? Being from another tribe?

Honestly, I believe it was because I'm from a different tribe than the moderator involved. That, of course, was not the excuse used. I made a joke about Trump, but I invoked a moderator's name who was participating in the thread.

The moderator in question was complaining in the thread about derisive language being used against the president. (She swears she's not a fan, all evidence to the contrary.) One of the other posters pointed out that Trump uses derisive language against perceived opponents:
Quote:
And calling him a snake, lol. :roll:

What a petty, vindictive, low-brow, small man we have for a prez.
---End Quote---
Don't tell that to *nota*, she'll have to give him a penalty for ad hominem attacks against the Governors. Oh wait...
The last was my comment.

I was dinged for "discussing moderator's actions in a forum". Now, in any rational world, what is the object of the joke? Is it "moderator's actions," or the language of the president?
