Out of the Blue

I keep meaning to mention the significance of the Black & White themed logo that popped up here last week. This is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of this god game from Peter Molyneux, Steve Jackson and the rest of Lionhead Studios. It feels like one of those "where does the time go?" moments, as the game was first released on March 30, 2001. As always, hats off to Walter "2" Costinak for creating the original logo, and a thank you to Scott for fixing it to work properly with our current format.

I bought Black & White. Completed the first level, never played it again.

Populous it wasn’t.

Yeah, I tried it twice. Both times I didn't get very far. The box was very cool though.

Sugary beverages consumed in childhood can lead to memory loss later: Study

I drank six cans of 7-Up a day as a kid, and my memory is fine.

Biden set to announce he's moving deadline for all US adults to be eligible for Covid vaccine to April 19.

I get my second dose the day before. In my state they're definitely going too slowly, and there's a lot of excess capacity. They should either open it up fully, or ratchet it down by 5 or 10 years per week.

Sounds like a scientific study to me.

Brazil has become South America’s superspreader event

For weeks, César Salomé, a physician in Lima’s Hospital Mongrut, had followed the chilling reports. A new coronavirus variant, spawned in the Amazon rainforest, had stormed Brazil and driven its health system to the brink of collapse. Now his patients, too, were arriving far sicker, their lungs saturated with disease, and they were dying within days. Even the young and healthy didn’t appear protected.
The new variant, he realized, was here.
“We used to have more time,” Salomé said. “Now, we have patients who come in and in a few days they’ve lost the use of their lungs.”
The P.1 variant, which packs a suite of mutations that make it more transmissible and potentially more dangerous, is no longer just Brazil’s problem. It’s South America’s problem — and the world’s.

Isn't WannaLog from Brazil? I hope he's staying safe.

100% efficacy. Problem, science?

W.r.O.n.G.
According to the GQPs finest, lindsey graham, the super spreader event is at the border where Biden is personally letting people come in untested and obviously covid sick and busing them all over the United States.
Plus it's Dr. Fauci's fault being as he's the new punching bag for the vacuum filled brains on the rightwing.

Most people under 55 won't be getting first shots anytime soon here - or around the rest of the planet for that matter - so you're lucky. Second shots are scheduled for four months from the first shot, fucking lol! That probably won't happen either and Canada's medical community is opposed to stretching it out that far too. Now the B1 variant is gaining traction here, there, and everywhere. God only knows what's coming down the pipe in the next year but I suspect it's going to get a metric fuck ton worse. So vaccines may not even matter. Fuck man, I so feel like Hudson in Aliens right now. "We're in some really pretty shit now, man!"

I think we may just end up having to let it run its course and hope the planet gets herd immunity before the zombie apocalypse starts. Partial vaccination of the world is going to make things worse, not better.

Yup, F cancer. Lots of awesome research in the pipeline though, so here's to hoping humanity can kick its ass.

IIRC it's approved in Canada and Mexico, but not in the US. So, yeah, we should be giving those away.
