Friday beer consumption has commenced. No telling how long this may last?

The Beer consumption...? Or something else?

I'm pouring myself some whisky on ice.

So there's a red sun today through the haze here in L.A. Looks like something out of a movie from another planet.

This must be what Shakespeare meant when he wrote:

Quote:
“These late eclipses in the sun and moon portend no good to us.”

Re: Lounge Summer LC Thread: Welcome to Looters, Lowlifes, Layabouts, and Lollygaggers

The air is a special kind of acrid in LA. I thought the 112 degree days were bad, but at least you can run the a/c and get away from that.

Just read that Oregon has 10% of it's population under possible evacuation orders, which is just incredible. Sending my thoughts to everyone north of us.

Can we have just one event in 2020 that isn't extreme, or if this continues, can we break the record for something that is positive, like, idk, most ice cream eaten in a single summer?

i live in portland. granted, these are just 'major' cities and there are lots of smaller towns that have it much worse than we do right now.

Re: Lounge Summer LC Thread: Welcome to Looters, Lowlifes, Layabouts, and Lollygaggers

Yeah, seeing photos from up there is pretty extreme. Didn't see any of the red-sky photos specific to Portland, but seeing them from Oregon and the Bay is pretty wild.

Be safe.

(I know Shuffle said he saw red skies, but I think he lives closer to Malibu than I do)

Re: Lounge Summer LC Thread: Welcome to Looters, Lowlifes, Layabouts, and Lollygaggers

its going to rain on monday all is well except for those that got burned down or up.
air quality will get better it already great at the coast. except for the fog.

every time there is a big fire someplace that place has worse air than any place else. that's naturally.
he is on first of course. no he isnt. then who is.

Re: Lounge Summer LC Thread: Welcome to Looters, Lowlifes, Layabouts, and Lollygaggers

I was in Beijing in 2005 and the normal smog was so intense that my throat was raspy and raw at the end of the day, especially if outside all day. The same for Mexico City many years ago in the early 1990's. It's still bad here but I'm doing inside work on my house and shop. The ever present bluish haze is cool and I like the apocalyptic atmosphere it radiates. The sun is a beautiful orange ball that is pleasant and soothing. It's the end of the world as we know it, and I Feel Fine.

Could be worse. 12,000 people died in London from choking to death on sulfur dioxide fumes during the Great Smog of 1952.

Yeah, that overdramatised the chaos at the hospitals somewhat, but mostly accurate in all other respects, I understand. That's what happens when pollution and the weather conspire to engulf a city in a cloud of sulphuric acid.

Is all this from a gender reveal party faux-pas, or what?

The gender reveal party caused the El Dorado fire, which is the fire on the right side of this map, next to San Bernardino:

Here is a size comparison of UK and California:

And here is the current fire map from Cal Fire:

It's mostly nature doing what nature does.

The sight and sound of a young healthy Doris Day, or even a milfy 1960 version, can still get me going, I swear to God. Signs of life!

I'm getting better at not reacting to provocative stuff. Stacking day on top of successful-day biting my tongue. Maybe soon it'll be less of a challenge lol. Bring on the reward.

No, Fall won't be any better.

I emailed my department today, and I believe most everyone has lost their sense of humor and a good portion of their humanity.

Anyway, we still be dancing in September!
