Quick answer: Yes, it sure can, if we let it. See below, in which we hear about the FIRST DEATH from OMICRON!
Another year of stupidity, and what have we done ...? Well, I'll tell you, per a promise made somewhere in a post or comment early this year - probably a New Year's resolution, haha - about updating the top banner, here you go, JIT, last day of the year. (You may need to ctrl-F5 or whatever to do a full refresh and clear the cache). Now this isn't much*, but just working on something may get me motivated to first get my "sandbox" up running, and then try to reprogram this site to make it more search-optimized and, more importantly, more user friendly.
Now, though, one can see that, through the use of quantum computer technology borrowed from the geek in the basement across the street, we have revised our mathematical models and we forecast Peak Stupidity happening approximately in the year 2026. We were wrong before, due to the work of an intern**. Though this site went on the air near the end of '16, a friend of mine had made the banner, per my specs, a couple of years before that.
How can it get worse though? Aren't things stupid enough yet for everybody?! Apparently, it can. There are great efforts being made in the West to bring Stupidity levels up to levels never imagined by the puny minds of our ancestors.
Here's the latest bad news to start 2022 off with: People are dying with or from THE OMICRON! At least one guy, anyway. That's a case fatality rate of, let me see, let delta approach zero, raise omicron to the power of iota + 1 .... and it approaches ... A LOT. People will die!. C'mon guys. Whaddya' need a refresher course? It's all Calculus-based stupidity nowadays!
OK, I gotta start this thing at one spot, but just move the time marker or mash replay to see it all:
(Virtual socially-distanced hat tip to Instapundit's Ed Driscoll.)
I went to the airport and realized I had no face diaper anywhere, not the usual one in my pocket and nothing in the luggage. Over at the ticket counter I asked for one: "Hey, can I get a new mask for this year?" They liked that - "here's a brand new '22 model". ... someday, this stupidity's gonna end...
* I didn't have any of the original parts to the image, do not have Photoshop, and didn't want to crank up Gimp, but I was able to back some stuff out, and use MS Paint to the fullest of its abilities. ("If you're not careful, you might learn something", as the man said.")
** It was that guy Josh in Bombay, who we mentioned in our about page. Turns out, his degree is in Sociology, not Computer Science, and even that, he got via mail order. The Peak Stupidity HR Department has been trying to fire Josh, but our hands are tied, due to Josh's minority and ungendered status, plus, what's the point of firing an intern? It's no fun - he doesn't lose any money anyway.
