Let's play - what is living at my house now.

Every once in a while it gets a little Mutual of Omaha at the Snarkolepsy residence.

One time, it was a cat living in the crawlspace. You could hear it meow-ing from inside the house. I will try to find the link-back.

Then, I was trying to catch mice in the garage and wound up with an opossum on a sticky trap. He eventually freed himself. Thank goodness. I wasn't going to do that! 

Now........ drum roll....

I decided to grow those cucumbers that come in plastic at the store. They seem to be very finicky for my climate and I only had ONE and I was waiting for my tomatoes to sync up so I could make bruschetta. This thing was completely overdeveloped. It was a foot long and maybe a couple of inches around.

Last week I woke up and it just vanished and I'm trying to figure out if a raccoon just rolled up and put it under it's arm and walked off. I mean, it was sooooo big! What animal does that? No pieces anywhere.

I'm still bitter about it. Next season I need a trailcam. Because it would have been really interesting to see how they absconded with an item so big.

Because I am an awful human being.

Fully Vaccinated Former SecState Colin Powell Dies From COVID Complications.

Instead of fighting each other, we should be hoping for more of this. Clearly term limits are never going to be a thing. Everybody voted to return to the 70's politically. So.... this is all we got to hope for to get the dinosaurs out of office.

Two clowns having lunch.

One of the more charming things I've seen in months.

I've mostly tapped out of the grievancedemic.

It's just been a circle jerk of people screaming "I HOPE YOU DIE DIE DIE". And it's gross, and I'm exhausted. 

I prefer people didn't die...... but it's their choice and roughly  60 thousand people a month are now "free". That is half of my suburb every single month. Roughly 2000 people die every single day multiplied by 30days. I used to think that people were "mostly" good with a few bad apples. But now I feel like people would walk over your dead body and ask who you voted for. It's just sad. 

People are basically putting others in categories that dehumanize them so their life doesn't matter. They deserved it anyway.... right? That is America right now. We made so many strides in the last decades to extend peoples lives. It was a medical marvel. People can now live to 110 somewhat regularly. And children born with defects were able to have normal lives. But none of those people deserve to live because they are weak and age discrimination is fully acceptable now.

The vaccinated want the unvaccinated to die because they think they are spreading it. And not one single person has thought more than surface deep about it. Delta came from a mutation from India. It made it over the waters and is able to infect EVERYONE to varying degrees because the vaccine was designed for another strain. JUST LIKE THE FLU! It wouldn't have mattered if 100% of people were vaccinated because there are clearly breakthrough cases. This virus job is to try and evade immunity. (i.e vaccines and infection)

The vaccinated can have their smug time because the reaper is still their shadow too. It's seeming pretty consistent that the vaccine wears off after about 6-8 months. That's why they started popping out boosters. And that information has not filtered down to the general public yet. Its crazy. People in my real life think they can't get it because they are vaccinated.

And while everyone is prancing around doing the mother superior dance, we have ~sub-variants~ popping out. Delta is just so awesome at it's job, it decided to stick around and tweak itself. There are now reports of people getting infected with Delta, and then getting reinfected with a sub-lineage of Delta. It's likely why Singapore is having such a huge problem right now. A sub-variant has displaced Delta.

I don't have any of the answers because I don't make the rules. But until this changes - this virus is going to grind us to the nubs mentally and economically. People have to decide when this is over. Not politicians. And there is a huge reservoir of people who just want others to die. So on.

Just as a side note - I am not better than anyone. I also want some people to die, but they are mostly isolated to politicians.

Housing is about to get really interesting.

Mr S. pointed out to me today that I start conversations the way clickbait articles start. Which I found funny. I was not aware of that before..... but here we are.

There is zero percent chance they are raising interest rates. Not only because we are swimming in debt - but because houses are now sitting (on the regular) for 100-160 days. And it took a little longer than I thought, but it seems like everyone wants to sell at once.

On sept 28, I sent a message to myself about the inventory so I wouldn't forget. At that time my city had 72 houses on. My town has been running at 53 houses for as long as I can remember. Now there are 91. For my city... that is swimming in inventory.

Price reductions have started to come. But they have been slow because it's just totally norms for houses to go up 20% in one year. In the middle of a pandemic.

Recently, a guy I know told me the pandemic was costing him 10 grand a month. 

I'm like WOW! Is it disinfectants. Paper. What?

He says - I had to raise my wages 30% to get people to stay, and I have 10 employees.

So if you are wondering why there are 140 container ships off the coast and there are shortages of everything - that is why. At this point I would say it's a worker strike. And these people are going to prance themselves right out of a job. Oh! what am I saying? The government will just print 4 trillion dollars and everything will be fine.
