    Chinese markets are still selling bats and slaughtering rabbits on blood-soaked floors as Beijing celebrates 'victory' over the coronavirus.
    Egg on my face if this is fake news.

    They have been suggesting the wet markets have been back running for a few days now so I doubt it's fake. Although I'm sure they could have gotten a little more sensationalistic with that headline if they'd tried.

    The numbers are all made up absent testing everyone for current infection and anti-bodies from past infection, or at least a large, randomized sample.

    I've moved back to my hometown for the time being and am working remotely. I'm in an area with pretty low population density. I go outside once a day to get some exercise. I ride a bike and do various bodyweight exercises. A little stressed about not being able to go to the gym! I'm also starting to think I should have my groceries delivered instead of going to the store and walking around where people are not keeping their distance!

    I recognize the need to do some serious social distancing for a while, but I am really getting irritated with all the virtue signalling, bad moral reasoning, and power grabs going on right now. The trade-off we're making right now is not between grandma's life and some abstract thing we call the economy, but between grandma's life and people's ability to put food on the table, to live decently flourishing lives for the foreseeable future, and some of the very important rights and freedoms we enjoy here in the US (and it should go without saying that these things can also easily be a matter of life and death). Moreover, we already tolerate a non-trivial amount of risk to people's lives in order for society to function normally anyway. So when people reduce economic and political concerns over this whole thing to simply "You want grandma to die!", I get f*cking irate.

    Anyway, working remotely and being on lockdown has saved me a grip of time that I'd usually take traveling to and from work and doing various other things throughout the day. I have a lot of time to write. I've also started making synthwave music. Because why the hell not? Use this time to do some shit you wouldn't have had time to do otherwise. Read something you've been meaning to read. Learn something. Make something. You probably won't get a chance like this again. For me, that's the silver lining to this whole thing. Everything else about it sucks.

    Don't forget to invest in the stock market if you're not already an active trader. This is one of those once in a lifetime opportunities to make some really easy decisions that are like 95% likely to lead towards profit.

    Guess black Chicagoans are getting lit up by the Corona. Twitter people think this will get the attention rather than that decades of disproportionate gang violence :lol:
