Blitz Q #134: Have we finally seen the end of internet “thoughts & prayers” during a national crisis?

This hit me a couple of days ago. I know many have mocked the concept of "thoughts and prayers" because it feels so hollow. Including me. Seriously, if we have a school shooting? Thoughts and prayers. Bombing? Thoughts and prayers. Tornado wipes out a town? Thoughts and prayers. Pandemic kills thousands around the world and … Continue reading Blitz Q #134: Have we finally seen the end of internet “thoughts & prayers” during a national crisis?

Q #132: What do the protesters saying “Covid-19 is a hoax” mean? (& other q’s about all this…)

I don't really understand the statement, "Covid-19 is a hoax" that people are putting on Facebook, Twitter, protest signs the past few weeks. Um, Covid-19 exists. Over 80,000 people have died from it and hundreds of thousands are carriers of it. It's been around and about all over the world. So, how is Covid-19 a … Continue reading Q #132: What do the protesters saying “Covid-19 is a hoax” mean? (& other q’s about all this…)

Q #130: If quarantine protesters are all about THEIR state’s rights, why wave Trump 2020 or Confederate battle flags?

(image from michiganadvance.com, Anna Liz Nichols) I hope these protests against lock-down go away quickly, and then the people can go home and stop prolonging the quarantine. You can't do what you're doing and expect things to clear up quicker, especially when you're blocking access to the institutions that need to keep working to do … Continue reading Q #130: If quarantine protesters are all about THEIR state’s rights, why wave Trump 2020 or Confederate battle flags?

Q #129: Another COVID-19 question: They keep saying “make ventilators”. Okay, but who’s making gloves, gowns, & other PPE right now?

A comment from someone that I read today prompted this question. I get the need for ventilators for all the people who are coming down with the worst bits of this coronavirus. Obviously, there's a need. However, the longer this goes on, the more it feels like it's just tackling a small part of the … Continue reading Q #129: Another COVID-19 question: They keep saying “make ventilators”. Okay, but who’s making gloves, gowns, & other PPE right now?

Blitz Q #128: Mass Covid-19 testing in the U.S.: How many can we really test & how long to test everybody?

I got to thinking about this a little while ago, because the more I look, the more confused I get. I'm assuming we can't test every single person in the United States who wants one right now, which rather stinks in my opinion. In a more-perfect world, a test would be great for the 300+ … Continue reading Blitz Q #128: Mass Covid-19 testing in the U.S.: How many can we really test & how long to test everybody?

Q#127: How can you effectively create calluses for guitar practice when you constantly have to wash your hands?

Thanks to Coronavirus and my workplace, I'm washing my hands far more often than ever before. I can't even use the fingerprint scanner on my phone anymore because it can't read it (unless I re-calibrate, but I'm debating on that). The one thing I heard when I first started guitar practice was the need to … Continue reading Q#127: How can you effectively create calluses for guitar practice when you constantly have to wash your hands?

Blitz Q #126: If you could nominate a song for Earth’s anthem, what would it be?

After seeing articles and pics of people stuck in quarantine or self-quarantine singing and talking to neighbors through their windows or balconies all around the world, it got me thinking about something. The reason I love music is, like math, it's a universal language (well, once you translate the lyrics, I guess). There are those … Continue reading Blitz Q #126: If you could nominate a song for Earth’s anthem, what would it be?
