We (which should be I but I use we to make it more professional I guess) bring you another ten random thoughts about COVID-19, the event that may shape a generation, especially if we don’t get a hold of its meteoric spread! Wednesdays are shaping up to be this type of “Ten Random Thoughts” posts. Sometimes it may be more than ten like this one today. The Wednesday posts for April are in danger. Which is good for me as I am really busy with all the market volatility due to the phucking virus and tax season.

On Wednesdays I pull together ten random thoughts. I may be doing away with the Wednesday posts in April…
Most will be about the topic that is reshaping our lives these days. What else? COVID-19. I am going to do my best to post positive thoughts and this is not easy! Here we go:
This is no drill. At this time, it is Time To Pull Together. Prayers will not save us. Only science. This is an all out call to make it easier on scientists to save us!
The success of the world’s scientists—along with strong political and social leadership—will determine which scenarios unfold, so it is time to focus on what we can all do to help.
On so many fronts, this is a battle of a lifetime and a test of our responsibilities for each other and the strength of our compassion. For our part, Science will continue to report the news, and make research on COVID-19 freely available as quickly as possible, and we will also continue to support and advocate for the scientists around the world who are leading the charge. Let’s maintain social distancing, but pull together, hard. We must. We will.
I am not used to having wife and kids at home during weeekdays. It is hard in its own unique way. It is also kind of nice too. But hard, you know what I mean? Many of you may be “roughing it” at home so this may help: Coronavirus quarantine: 100 things to do while stuck inside due to a pandemic. Which one is your favorite (standard lame blogger question to increase engagement and page views and $$$…if only that was true here, sad lol)
Must click Twitter thread: LoveInTheTimeOfCoronavirus.
Another must click. Just do it, I mean, click it! Excellent Presentation on the Latest COVID-19 Research, Hygiene Tips, and Treatment Options.
Enough positive, time to freak you out. COVID-19 spread from January 23 through March 14th.
When your MD client says we are not ready, all who can must stay home to give them a chance to not become Italy, you know it is serious: The best thing everyday Americans can do to fight coronavirus? #StayHome, save lives. Apparently, this does not appear to be a hoax!
The ones I am really concerned about are the elderly right now. Reach out to them, see if they need anything but, and here is where it gets weird, do not go near them! Let’s let Max Brooks, the son of 93 year old Mel Brooks tell us why.
If you want to learn how we royally messed up the testing part of the Covid-19 crisis, I have the article for you: Inside the Race to Solve America’s Coronavirus Testing Crisis. Maybe we should not be yelling that we are #1 all the time?
Can you imagine if the wifi goes down? I don’t want to go there, unthinkable! So, lets get back to being positive: Resources for learning from home during COVID-10 School Closures.
Fantastic profile of the the Executive Director of the World Health Organization: The fireman of global health: The WHO’s emergencies chief is put to the test. Wow, very interesting life story.
Just hit ten items…Screw it, I am on a roll, lets keep going, you are going to miss my Wednesday posts! Inside the National Quarantine Center, There Is No Fear of Coronavirus. There Is Only Urgency. Meet some heroes putting their lives on the line for us. Why do we celebrate the armed forces and keep expanding the Pentagon budget and we under fund Public Health when they are protecting us from viruses shit huh, WTF!
The AofM Guide to Staying Home. AofM stands Art of Manliness. I always thought the name of this site is funny. Some good links in there.
Just saw all the people in Florida at the beach and people in downtown San Francisco without a care in the world and I am thinking we are so phucked! STAYTHEFUCKHOME PEOPLE, THIS IS NOT A DRILL! THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU, IT IS ABOUT ALL OF US!
Can I make it more clear? Do you understand? Ok then, how about this: The Power of the Individual in an Exponential Crisis. PLEASE do your part! It’s not like we have not been warned you know, WTF!
A collection of photos of the pandemic.
Before I leave you with the funny pic/gif at the end of each of my posts, how about a message from Matthew McConaughey!
And I leave you with this…
