    Apologies I wasn't trying to be shocking or callous, but reading it again I can see how it appears to be that. As Apt says I was more observing that it seemed to me like the Republican politicians weren't doing their own base any favours. I wasn't saying it's a good thing and I was in no way celebrating more death.

    I'm sorry that it came across that way and thank you for pointing it out to me.


    Thanks for this. I apologise for reading your comment in the worst possible light.




    This comment from reddit has been shared around a lot since it was posted. It's reddit so of course there's not really any way to verify whether it's true but I've seen it resonating with a lot of people on different social media (honestly I'm feeling a bit haunted by this post, it's appearing a bunch of places).

    When there's an emergency or some other awful thing happening, I go into robot mode and just do everything that needs to be done until it's done and just absolutely break down afterwards, which I imagine is pretty common. I feel like there's been no 'afterwards' for so many people. With an accident or even ongoing illness there's a process (even if it sucks). The sense of the world continuing around you is kind of galling when you're in or have just come out of crisis, but also almost protective because there's a sense of normality to return to. But now there's no normal after the illness and the death, and the illness and death just keep happening. All the rituals around grieving that allow you to have people around you and to process what's happening (whatever that looks like) are just gone. It sucks so much this happened on an election year as well. People just don't get a chance to catch their breath.

    Then it's not only callous, it's inaccurate, considering the virus impacts people of colour at disproportionately higher rates in the US, and Florida is one of the most diverse states in the country. Florida isn't a deep red state, Desantis won by less than 1% in 2018.

    But you know, dead old people who theoretically vote for trump. You're really going to try and convince people that wasn't being expressed as a good thing?


    I just think it's so cute how many people went off at Amph in this thread for "fearmongering" when he expressed sympathy for the looming deaths in the UK because of complete government mismanagement, but speculating on potential dead Trump supporters is just 'observation'.

    That's a shamefully shitty fucked-up thing to say.

    TIL I learned there are badgers in North America.

    Honestly the thing I love seeing the most here is snakes, there are some common ones that are bloody enormous. Once I saw a juvenile hawk grab a meter long snake out the patch of bush outside my apartment (maybe it was a bit smaller, was kind of hard to tell watching is swing around like a helicopter as the raptor took off with it). Oh and I'm a bit obsessed with vultures because a two of them were chilling on my deck railing for no discernible reason (one threw up on the deck which was incredibly gross but kinda cool at the same time).

    (Please ignore untidy winter deck and also appreciate my ridiculous cat who couldn't decide she wanted to eat them or they wanted to eat her.)

    I'm unhealthily impressed by this. I think I would lose my mind if I saw a raccoon. I'm trying to think of anything we have equivalent to show off with but I'm coming up short. Badgers? Hedgehogs? Foxes are nothing special here.


    I did lose it when I saw my first (and currently only) raccoon. It was jogging across the road like 'get out of my way'. I would love to see a badger. And a bear.

    I nearly got to see a tornado a little while ago but it missed us. I guess 'see' isn't quite the right word, since I believe you're supposed to lurk somewhere without windows or whatever.
