Out of the Blue

Happy Good Friday!

Frans made a cool addition to the Site Statistics Page, which now features a line graph showing the number of stories posted here per month. It features a neat function to scroll back and forth one month or one year at a time, as well as a month picker. And the scrolling animation is awesome, as the line morphs rather than jumps when you change months. There's also another new feature there, as it now mirrors the visitor counter that's hidden at the bottom of this page. Have an office pool going for when we'll hit the 1.25 billion mark? Now you can more easily check.

At this point it's probably worth buying a pre-built with a 30xx series card (if you can find one) compared to just buying a card.

Can you imagine a modern smallpox epidemic instead of COVID-19? Would certain states even be populated?

That's because, in part anyway, the Panama Canal is only just big enough for these big ships. If you have ever seen pictures of some of those ships going through they have a couple feet clearance on side.

Brilliant
TLDR If you live in a state full of smart people and can't get vaccinated. Go to a red state. They got plenty of unused vaccines. Just be sure to wear a mask.

Holy Shit, this just in the Daily Mail is reporting Greenburg turned on Gaetz and they were trafficking a minor between 14-17 years old ! Wtf
Indictment incoming!
arrest is "said to be imminent" after the unidentified alleged victim testified before a Florida grand jury this week saying
she had sex with the conservative Republican before she turned 18.

No kidding Redeye9, I've been telling everyone trying to get it here in Austin (shortage cause peeps want the shot) call a tRump county near by!

I'm freaking out about the cop at the capital but then another news site said both cops were injured, one critical.
So I was hoping they were able to resuscitate him!

IIRC, you'll be waiting a bit longer, since the IRS was tasked with distributing the checks from the American Rescue Plan.
