If anyone in here is into bicycles, right now is the best time to ride I’ve seen in a long time since nobody is out, I rode all over the city last night, all through downtown too, normally would be insane on a friday night but there weren’t any cars at all, it was great
That would be great, but where I live people are not allowed to go further than 200 metres from their homes. Fortunately my bike was stolen months ago.
That sounds pretty rough man
Well I have flatmates, so it’s not that rough. But we now have police drones controlling the streets, and that’s kinda… worrying.
But at least bikes are not being stolen anymore. There’s quite a business behind it where I live.
Anyway, enjoy your rides, it must be cool to ride through the city with no cars around.
If only I had a calculator that had notes …
Plot twist: KAOS doesn’t even have kids

Apparently there’s an adult-only ballpit in Bristol.
With new registrations coming in at double and triple the normal rate, the mod team has plenty to stay busy. However, my personal recommendation is to read a non-go book. See Book Club and What non-Go book are you reading right now? for ideas.
Now and again I explore YouTube for recitations of favorite poems. The Listeners by Walter de la Mare has a huge number of renditions, mostly bad, but four are excellent. Two use music very effectively, as you describe. The other two, without music, are just superbly dramatic. Here they are in ascending order of excellence (IMHO): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlKgIXHETmU, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdkluBVNEEc, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X35HAvwGFoU, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0QGHT8s9pw.
I have recited this poem myself (at an office party), and it was a difficult job (I practiced every day for a week), so I really admire these performers.
So… to help us with our boredom, would you mind posting some of your mineral/rock specimens?
I will try to get that done, but not until after this is over, I’m afraid. I am mostly incompetent at IT stuff, so I will get mu daughter to photograph them and upload the photos.
Minerals, poems, Go, massive scholarly knowledge… Conrad is the grandfather everyone wants
Oh my. That’s me blushing.
You can train your stone handling.

At some point, you accept the fact that you are bored and look for solutions that could be good or could be bad to solve this problem of being bored. My TV watching has gone way up recently along with my screen time, partly because everything is online now for me, and partly because I will go online to find something to do.
