Good speech so far. Just hope there's people still willing to listen.

If you told me 12 years ago that Joe Biden would be President one day I'd have no trouble believing you, but if you told me I'd be more worried about an assassination attempt at Biden's inauguration than at Obama's, that I wouldn't have understood.

A portrait of Trump hung upsidedown above a toilet might be fun. Incredibly petty, but fun.

I wonder if they'd prefer that he cope with his stress with alcohol, drugs and wife-beating?

It is very suss. I know how I'd challenge it under Australian insolvency law (I have done insolvency at some points of my career, although not for years at this point) but US insolvency law is outside my knowledge.

They're phoenixing to dodge the lawsuits. Shut down original NRA so that all allegations against it are legally against a defunct entity, start up new NRA.

A little story on the effectiveness of masks.

The latest outbreak here in Victoria began with someone from the current NSW outbreak infecting someone here (probably travelled before the border shut again, unaware they were infected).

They gave it to about 15 people at a Thai restaurant on the 21st of December.

The cluster levelled out at 27, all other cases being close household contacts of the original infected from the restaurants, despite a laundry list of "possible exposure sites" advertised over the following 3 weeks to encourage people to isolate and test - shopping centres, trains, supermarkets, you name it.

Something so infectious that patient zero can spread it to over a dozen people at one place, but nobody else then got it even though they were unaware until about New Year that any cases existed in the state or that they needed to start isolating.

The difference is that nobody wears masks at restaurants while sitting to eat, while everywhere else we have compulsory masks in situations with a risk.

Wear masks, and in places with known outbreaks, stop encouraging crowded indoor dining. It's that easy.

If they do, I hope the person doing the survivor protocol is not Kiefer Sutherland.
