Out of the Blue

Happy Black Friday, an "occasion" that's taken on less significance in the era of online shopping. But it's certainly still a thing. So if you are reading this from the middle of a mob fighting over the last sale TV in the store—well, enjoy! For those shopping at the widespread online sales today, here's hoping you can avoid a virtual trampling.

Obituary: Mr Goxx, the cryptocurrency-trading hamster, dies.

5 times as contagious as Delta, potential to evade vaccines.

*gulp* Welp...
President Biden announced a travel ban for South Africa and 7 other countries, citing the new variant.
Whatcha wanna bet it's already here.

It was already in Belgium, Egypt and Hong Kong I think.

So that South African travel ban maybe will only slightly delay/mitigate the initial spread, but it's already out of SA so... *shrugs*

You're probably right and since you guys down south are going "bare skin" already for the most part and the Canadian border with the US is open with testing restrictions partly lifted ( don't have to if you only spend less than 72 hours in the US before coming back, plenty enough time to catch it ), let's brace for CovidCalypse 2 I guess?

Damn I hope I'm wrong here and the vax is still efficient enough for it.
