    Thank you. This needs to stop...now.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    That's not what I meant. I meant are people that don't get very sick having lung damage, other organ damage like people who do get very sick? Has anyone looked into this?

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    You could say that about everything at this point. I don't think that we can say we know anything about covid as a fact other than things that can be established so quickly. It took nearly a decade for them to establish complete info on HIV. They started to take it seriously in 1985 and they really didn't know anything beyond anecdotes until the early 90s. I'm only comparing HIV and Covid in their early stages of knowledge, because they're completely different viruses in both how they spread and lethality.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Has anyone done a study on effects of Covid infection on people who don't need to be hospitalized? I'm wondering if some of the same long-term effects are happening to people who don't even get very sick as those who are hospitalized, on oxygen but never get sick enough to have to be ventilated.

    That's my sense, that the frequency of my questions rubbed them that I'm too needy. I was going to mess with their production website so I had better ideas of where to look this week, but I never got the opportunity. Also, sometimes I have momentary lapses where I forget the scope of the project, mostly due to misinterpretation of directions. That bugs some people.

    No. They let me mess around with the website for an hour, told me that I'd used up my hours for the week, and then they messaged me on slack and said that I wasn't a good fit for their company. That's as far as it went.

    I was in a software testing role, I just wanted more specifics about which features that needed to be tested. Like the feature within the feature. I've done it long enough to know that it's really hard to find stuff in exploratory testing without knowing where to look. I didn't even have enough time to learn the ins and outs of the software.

    I honestly have no idea......I could have unknowingly broken the social rules, but I really have no clue what the hell I did. I had 2 zoom meetings with my managers on the first day and then the second day was on 100% on Slack. All WFH shit. The next day they brought me in just to fire me. I guess asking for more detailed instructions might have been an issue, or sending a slack message late at night on day 2 (I had forgotten that the guy wasn't on the West Coast so I momentarily thought he was 2 hours behind me...It would have been 7pm in that case....I wasn't expecting it to be answered immediately anyway. I don't remember doing anything so inappropriate as to get fired in 48 hours...unless I did do something in which I have no idea what it is.

    Now that I found out that Crochet is a likely reliever, I hope that Detmers falls or they take Kjerstad.

    No, there isn't. I'm convinced it's HR in their ear telling them not to say anything because they don't want to work with a person on the spectrum, and they have to protect themselves legally. Those were my words, not theirs. I know what it is, the job didn't have a lot of structure and I didn't have enough time to acclimate, and they didn't want to wait for me to do so.

    Just my opinion, but anyone who is working away from home and around other people right now should get hazard pay. I don't care who it is or how much they're getting paid. The players aren't being unreasonable at all. If you have enough money to own a sports team, you can pay your players for playing in empty stadiums.

    Nope. Just told me to go away.

    Got fired after 2 days yet again...idk what the hell I'm doing to get whacked so quickly. I don't even have a chance to adapt to the environment before they've already made their decision. WTF? Anyway...on to the next one.

    Which Team Was Better? 94 or 05 White Sox?

    Ah yes...Javier Vazquez. The guy who only had a good year on shitty teams. Could have been an ace if he could grow a pair, but Javi no tiene cojones.

    Absolutely. I have no problems agreeing to disagree. Makes life fun, I agree.

    Not going there with you. This has been discussed on this board ad nauseum.

    That's how every business is run these days. Privatize profits, socialize losses and rake in the dough. Fuck everyone but me.

    I didn't know that the chances of him remaining a starter are so low according to scouts. Not that that has stopped the Sox before, but Fulmer is a cautionary tale there.

    Anyway, I never started that job because of Covid, but I found another one doing the same thing in the same format that I can work from home and pays significantly more.

    They would have coasted to a division title if they had spent money on one more starter.

    They said that about Sale too. They can be wrong.

    Not sure he'll be there either.

    I'm still on the Crochet train. If he hits, it's Chris Sale part deux. A plus slider and Changeup with a 100 mph fastball from a 6-6 low 3/4 delivery from the left side. This is one of those calculated risks you take in the spot where the Sox are picking. Could lightning strike twice?
