With All This Corona Virus Crap...

...going on, and with me having wondered from close to the beginning of it all if this virus was man-made, and with me more recently wondering - what if it becomes more deadly as time goes by (either because of how engineered if man-made or if by its nature if a natural virus) - I have decided to watch 12 Monkeys this weekend along with some of the death, doom and destruction classic movies (if I can find them on Amazon or Netflix) like: The World, The Flesh & The Devil; The Omega Man; The Andromeda Strain;  The Last Man On Earth; Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (no not a death by contagion type movie but one of the best doomsday movies of all times and absolutely the best films of  George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden and Slim Pickens); The Stand (mini-series, which I have never before watched).

Those films and the one series should make it a good weekend to expound my imagination's gloomy outlook on the corona virus & the general state of the world with or without the contagion.

Who knows, if my new gas mask filters arrive in time, my outlook may change but I had bad timing and only ordered them on February 9th. I had been meaning to order them, to replenish my old ones, for well over a month - maybe even two or three before that date. Being THE Great Procrastinator I kept putting it off or just forgetting about ordering them and when I finally ordered them the CV scare was ongoing. Now they tell me my order will take at least 4 weeks to complete. Oh well, it's not like the expired ones I have will kill me if I use them like the ones from decades ago would have done to you if you used them after their expiration dates (some of them actually became toxic over time due to the chemicals used to make them). Never use old expired surplus gas mask filters.

All the best,
Glenn B
