Please note Admiral BigGun’s Fanpost raising money for Special Olympics is highlighted up here, I’ll keep it on the front page until ABG reaches his goal. I mentioned yesterday that I was likely in the first wave of providers in the state I live in (Floriduh) to be eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine and that I was probably not going to take it; please note that is consistent with my usual Daily Norseman sarcasm and I will literally shove the CEO, CFO and CMO out of the way to get the vaccine. I did research the science behind both available vaccines and am confident in both preventing Covid 19 and causing a side effect of hair growth...j/k on the hair growth thing. I probably won’t get a chance to go hunting this year so that 6 point is going to have to do for the year. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and weekend eve, time the plan the beer menu for the weekend.

-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
