Months after reading David Eagleman’s Sum, which is a collection of stories about scenarios in the afterlife that is my favourite fiction book, I am still loving the premise as a means to think of new concepts to write short fiction. Today, I have another one.
In thinking about content for this blog, there’s a lot I don’t think I can either write 500 words about, which is my warm-up minimum word limit for these blog posts, or do the research to get that much, by which time I would feel I need 5000 words to cover the topic. So what I’ve decided is that I would collect these into posts until I get 500 words and post them. If nothing else, they will serve as a repository for me for potential future posts. Hopefully, they will be enjoyable, if not thought-provoking, for you.
Well, I was way too conservative in my predictions for when the US COVID-19 case totals would surpass China’s. That’s according to the excellent (American) Johns Hopkins University interactive website!
I wasn’t sure of the American’s testing capacity, but that didn’t seem to matter much because they are confirming cases at a very high rate compared to many other jurisdictions. That is, the US hasn’t even gotten around to the most of the potential cases yet!
Wow! America is in some serious trouble, but I’m not sure they really have a grasp of it yet, on the whole and on the top among those making the biggest decisions. You’re gonna really need God to bless you to get through this relatively unscathed, America. I’ll even pray for you!
Next target, beat all of Europe, for not just a “win” but a “trouncing”. America loves being #1 at everything, after all, doesn’t it?
May the Force be with you!
Have you ever wondered how Santa knows you when you’re sleeping? How he knows when you’re awake? And how he knows when you’ve been good or bad?
Well, you might think you know! However, it’s not likely you really knew if what American traitor Edward Snowden says is true!
