Good Morning, It’s Thorsday!
I finished working around midnight last night, got home and opened Twitter....and promptly closed Twitter. I get the feeling that Covid-19 is now a real thing to some people; although I don’t mind (or particularly care for) the Covid-19 discussion I do mind when politics leaks into the discussion. If you can’t talk about Covid-19 without bringing up politics then don’t bring it up. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thorsday - I was informed this is cultural appropriation, I’m not smart and still don’t know what that means.
Around the DN since our last open thread:

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to wash your hands, don’t touch your waiter’s face and Welcome Aboard!
