    Just saw the latest Matrix movie last night.
    I can assure everyone that the idea that we live in a simulated reality is patently absurd . . . or is that what the Programmers want us to believe?!

    The movie was 'fun', but so convoluted and nonsensical, that even Keanu Reeves looked embarrassed at the silly dialog and behaviors he was scripted to do.
    If we are in a simulation (we are not!), whoever made it up was one bored (and boring) entity.

      Those air guns will scare off a few people.

        • Meanwhile, Florida had 31,758 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, breaking a record for the most cases in a single day since the start of the pandemic in the U.S. in March 2020, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

          The previous single-day highest number of cases was in last August, during the height of the delta variant wave in Florida, when 27,802 cases were reported.

              • NJ had a new high with over 27K cases yesterday. But hospitalizations are still less than half the previous high.

                • COVID hospitalizations on the rise (again) as omicron infections skyrocket48k+) Florida's latest COVID-19 infection wave is now leading to rising hospitalizations throughout the state. More than 3,400 Floridians are now hospitalized with COVID-19 , according to the Florida Hospital Association. That's 657 more patients than the association's prior-day report — nearly a 24% increase.

                    But will they die from it? Omicron symptoms are far less severe, more like a bad cold. If it doesn't kill at anywhere near the rate of previous variants, will it turn out to be a blessing? - if herd immunity comes much sooner than we thought.

                    "Most infections are described as mild, with recoveries usually within three days, he said. The most common early symptom reported is a scratchy throat, followed by nasal congestion, a dry cough and myalgia, or aches, manifesting in lower back pain."

                      And some recent articles have said Omicron may be a blessing because its displacing Delta as the dominant strain of the virus, which was far more lethal

                        We'll have to wait and see. Increased transmissibility can vastly outweigh decreased severity. Covid-19 is significantly less severe than the original SARS from 2002 which had a death rate of about 10%, but SARS ended up with around 8000 cases and 800 deaths worldwide, whereas Covid has notched up over 800,000 deaths in the US alone and still counting.

                          In the capital of Australia, cases have increased dramatically with the spread of the omicron strain and reduction of restrictions in the state which surrounds us. However, despite the surge in cases, hospitalisations have declined since the earlier delta peak and ICU admissions are currently zero with deaths also non-existent.

                          I will say that with an estimated 99% of 12+ vaccinated, we may be better placed than many other areas in the world. Also, our 5G reception is otherworldly and we've all discovered an urge to build Bill Gates cathedrals to better worship him!

                            I was more uncomfortable yesterday from allergies and soreness from the previous days workout.

                                The above are as close to 2020 year-end numbers as you are going to get. Global numbers exclude China (87K cases, 4.6K deaths) as unreliable.

                                NJ & NY Detail:

                                Here are close to 2021 year-end numbers to compare to 2020. Both exclude China but include probable deaths for NY, NJ, and Bergen County. Note that we only had the pandemic for about 10 months in 2020.
