Got a call from my primary doctor’s office.


They had to reschedule my yearly physical in April because the doctor would be out. So they had to move my appointment from like mid April to the week before. 


No big deal, the lady asked me what day/time and I said “it’s so far out you pick a time and I will be there/put it on my calendar.


All is fine.


Then she asks me…

“In the last month have you been in contact with anyone who had COVID?”

And she starts down her list of 10 COVID questions like my appointment was tomorrow.  


I said “ma’am, why does it matter if I have been exposed for an appointment 3 months from now?”


She went silent and said “I can’t make an appointment without answering these questions”


I said “ok, since the answers mean nothing for April, just make up the answers, as it would be nonsense for an April appointment.”


She said “hold, I have to ask my manager what to do”. 


A minute later she gets back on, she’s still confused like she doesn’t understand why COVID exposure questions don’t mean anything for 3 months from now and just starts asking again.  


I said “ma’am, just put whatever answer you want, the appointment is in April, not tomorrow. So if I was exposed I would have gone through the disease and cured of it like 2 months before the appointment. Just put all yes’s, all no’s, or any mixture you want, I don’t care.”


She was really confused and just started again with the first question. 


I said “ma’am, just put whatever you have to put to get the appointment scheduled, it doesn’t matter, put all no’s I don’t care”


She finally just answered them herself. 


The lack of understanding of reality by some people who then just go off a script is troubling.

The names I’ve seen floating around are both black women, as Biden has said he would nominate (Jackson and Kruger).

Only if she is an african american who is articulate, clean, bright, and a nice looking women.

None of that fun stuff? 

No "Long Dong Silver" or pubes on Coke cans either.

That said, I'm an absolute re(dact) so anything I say should be dismissed as total nonsense.

Biden calling that reporter a SOB is hilarious. Hope he starts with the mean tweets next.

Isn’t there supposed to be a news cycle about how the free press is under attack? I thought how this works.

Can I get a vaccine that prevents CRT talk in a Covid-19 thread?

Oof, I have heard that was typically a bad idea as your current company now knows you were looking and may start looking for your replacement.


Hope it works out for you and what I have heard is wrong.


Congratulations on the nice pay increase however.


I finished at 378% of my sales goal in 2021.  If they want to replace me, good luck.

I’m not betting against him getting another chance.


There’s a lot of things you’ll get endlessly forgiven for (Josh Gordon and substance abuse, for example) Seems like storming off the field shirtless in the middle of the game while hurting your teams playoff chances is a line you can’t cross.

Actually, fuck it, you’re probably right.

Thinks he’s playing with Baltimore next season, as if any team is giving him any more chances. 


I’m not betting against him getting another chance.

If CRT isn't being taught, why do leftists get so upset about the idea of banning it?

That was last month's strategy.  The new strategy is parents aren't qualified to have input into what their kids are taught.

I just got offered 20% by a competitor. I told the boss. He matched it within 24 hours.

You are conflating a course called “CRT” with modified textbooks and teaching seminars on how to convey history under the lens of CRT, which is DEFINITELY happening right now.


No one, that I am aware of, is saying “they have a class called critical race theory in my high school”.


However, the state board of education for Virginia, the latest hotbed for this topic, absolutely had it all over their curriculum and website about the lens in which certain topics are taught.


And geeblock don’t even come on here and try to conflate CRT with just teaching that slavery existed and so did segregation because anyone with 2 brain cells knows that argument is bull shit.


If CRT isn't being taught, why do leftists get so upset about the idea of banning it?

Add critical race theory

Ummm, pretending CRT is "just a graduate level law course" belongs in the CNN Gaslighting Hall of Fame.

Personally, I'm never locking down again.

mass format psychosis right wing conspiracy pool dividers


I’d bet my money that you and most of the right wing conspiracy theorists had never heard of mass formation psychosis prior to the doctor saying it on Joe Rohan.  Sounds the same as groupthink.  Mindlessly regurgitating the flavor of the week conspiracy sounds like mass formation psychosis.

For the love of God can we stop putting a microphone in front of Antonio Brown.

I find the theory interesting. Glad you had it all figured out in college.
