Covid data 

Oh wait, Illinois is just trash at websites? Or are they cooking the data? Here is a different page on IDPH with just percentages...

Why is it different?

Covid Data 

There is a weird disconnect I am seeing: "...they don’t work against the omicron variant that now accounts for nearly all U.S. infections..."
This is the data in Illinois: 10% of tested variants are Omicron... 90% delta.
So what's going on?

Big ole glass of ‘it ain’t the weekend yet’ energy.

Me: C-Span is great. It's amazing for following U.S. politics.

C-Span: Glad you like it. Now look at this ad.

The Characters app in Gnome is really nice! It's saved me from random duck-duck-go'ing emojis.

If your like me and you use emojis like a teenager out on the town, it's very handy.

A credit for e-bikes seems like it will persuade bike riders to start leeching off the grid instead of swaying drivers to get a bike. Not sure I understand that credit fully. Maybe lets have a credit to buy bikes?

Ever read a headline and think you are having a stroke?

Themed everything in Dracula for the holiday coming up! I've got Nuke and Deadline set up nicely. Houdini is harder to theme... maybe when I have some time.

This vegan whipped cream is great. Tastes amazing and I got it at Aldi. Crazy how far vegetarian / vegan food has gone in the mainstream.

So id.ME won't let me register with a .ME email. That right there is funny.

Tulsa Race Massacre CNN 

CNN is reporting the Tulsa Race Massacre happened in 2021...
How does one mess up that badly? This is still live as of Jun 01 19:34:23 2021 UTC.

What in the open internet!? Just opened a link from Reddit that took me to CBS news. The site asked if I wanted to read it on the CBS news app or Chrome... like most crappy news sites do on mobile. But on my desktop... Is this a new thing? Gotta add CBS news to my blocklist.
