    So just to be clear, is it pig's blood or goat's blood that I should be putting over my doorway?

    I think IIRC, it's pig's blood.

    Currently in Nebraska and not even the employees wear masks here. At least at the 3 places I stopped except for in Lincoln. Good job Lincoln Nebraska.

    If you're talking about the tenth plague from Exodus it was lamb's blood.

    This happened last summer too. (Although that fees like 30 years ago now) When all we had to 'worry' about just not going in wooded areas at dusk, and spraying bug repellent on if we were outside. Seems so quaint compared to this year.

    Wow. An antibody cocktail sounds so appetizing right now, I could really go for one.

    Seriously tho, it may not be as good as a vaccine but could be a huge first step towards an eventual victory over coronavirus.

    Yes, Juliet -- the Jews would put pig's blood over the doorway.

    Of course it's lamb's blood! (not goat)

    Also, in other news... NYC has updated its safe sex guidelines in the age of Corona...

    https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/doh/downloads/pdf/imm/covid-sex-guidance.pdf

    Gloryholes and "sexy Zooms" for everyone!

    The best part of that document was how the consent section came right after the "next safest sex partner is someone you live with" part.

    I would enjoy reading earlier drafts of this document.

    The next safest partner is someone you live with. Having close contact — including sex — with only a small circle of people helps prevent spreading COVID-19.
    But, and we can't emphasize this enough, not just anyone you live with.

    Thank you! My cousin kept saying pig's blood and I knew that was wrong. For some reason I completely blanked on lamb.

    Locally in Canada Ontario Stoney Creek, the Santa Claus parade that would happen in November was just cancelled due to Covid19. Did we just win the earliest cancellation prize?

    Could be. And while I know that stuff is coming, it is just depressing as hell. I seriously don't see how they even allowed Santas at the mall this year unless something drastically changes.

    They still have Santa's at the malls?? :eek:

    They're just gonna have to have a Santa Zoom call and tell the kids the reindeer came down with a something.

    And in a very grim milestone, we've just passed 2 million confirmed cases here in the states. :(
