An inbound call

I guess Chinese spammers have gotten so lazy that theyʼre not even bothering to hide their caller ID anymore.

The rest of the world: “Thatʼs the definition of democracy.”

China: “Hey, look! George Floyd!”

One of Darcieʼs friends in Kowloon has started stocking up on toilet paper. She says that everyone is stockpiling supplies, especially paper goods, because of the flu thatʼs spreading on the mainland.

My spidey sense tells me this is going to be something big; especially if people in Hong Kong are that worried about it. Iʼm going to start picking up extra supplies, just in case. Paper goods, I guess. But also canned and boxed foods. Itʼs not like I donʼt have the room for it; and if nothing bad happens, Iʼll just save it all for the next earthquake, flash flood, or other natural disaster.
