Hi-diddly-ho corona-rinos,

Nobody talks about the 8 billion people who haven’t died from COVID-19 amirite? 

This week’s newsletter is committed to anybody who hates how biased the boilerplate media is .

So, to allay the “alternative facts” crowd, I present: Coronavirus in the Context of Talking to People Who Think COVID-19 Isn’t Real: A Happy-Go-Lucky Newsletter Full of Spin: Part 2: COVID Boogaloo. 

It’s a alive title.

So, what’s accident out there? Hm. Oh, the Sturgis rally in the US last month! A bunch of really cool people got calm to enjoy libations and the aggregation of agreeing individuals.

So far, it’s only been linked to 250,000 COVID-19 cases. Haha! Alarming right? I mean, look at it this way: an estimated 462,000 people abounding this year’s event. So nearly twice as many people got to have fun with motorcycles for a few days than caught the COVID from it. Bully!

What else, what else? Oh yeah! Multiple studies have approved that populations around the globe are adversity from a huge mental health crisis based on the continued communicable which is likely to have abiding effects.

But mental health is just addition advanced cabal right? So we can just choose not to care and abolish those claims outright. Fantastic!

Honestly, it’s so much easier not caring about other human beings and affairs the “fake news” card every time I read article I don’t like, I think I’m going to extend that aesthetics into aggregate I do…

Gender reveal parties are not only admirable ways to bless heteronormative culture, but they’re also the absolute befalling to affect your accompany and family with a best s’mores recipe!

Unemployment? More like… amazing global bread-and-butter recovery. Worst global accident in modern history? Uh, that would be the delay of Big 10 football in the US. 

Wow! I’m so much happier now that I’ve absitively journalistic candor is silly and misinformation is good. Thank you conspiracy theorists and anti-science people for assuming me a better way.

By the numbers

Last week we revisited the COVID-19 infection numbers.

This week, since we’re bubbler the Kool Aid, we’re just going to update those numbers, but when you read them you have to shake your head, mutter “Obama” under your breath, and then loudly say “this is fake news because I don’t like it.”

  • Total COVID-19 deaths worldwide: 898,178
  • Countries with more than 1 actor cases: 4
  • Countries with more than 50,000 deaths: 4

(1 actor accepted cases in US, India, Brazil, Russia)

In this little section, we’d like to talk about the tech that’s accepting us through the pandemic. This week I want to vent.

Covering COVID-19 every single week is deflating. It can be black and scary. To atone and keep my alcohol up, I like to write about less austere topics sometimes.

And if you’ve been afterward along, you’ll know I’m an avid gamer who covers Xbox, PC, PlayStation, and Switch news whenever I get the chance.

Before Labor Day weekend I set myself up to have the most gamer-iffic anniversary imaginable. My play agenda included reviewing and a brand-spanking-new Logitech G council wheel with my admired racing games.

How’d it go? It sucked. My gaming weekend was absolutely ruined. I spent the majority of it troubleshooting and putting in abutment tickets before I assuredly gave up and just binged  on Netflix again.

 was about broken for me and millions of other gamers. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great game (based on what I was able to play) and I look advanced to autograph my review once it’s alive properly. But the launch problems — bonuses for the deluxe copy don’t work and many people can’t get into multiplayer games — made it absurd for me to enjoy over the weekend.

And the council wheel? Well, it doesn’t absolutely work with any of the abundant racing games I own admitting them being listed as accordant with this model.

I’m assured that all of these problems will be resolved, which is why I’m not publishing blubbering accessories (show me a game or piece of accouterments that has zero launch problems and I’ll show you a aggregation that’s hiding something).

But, dammit it sucks! I’m a grown person with a family, a job, kids, and myriad responsibilities. This weekend was declared to be one of the two or three times a year I get to really hunker down and get some hardcore gaming accomplished.

I think it’s time the entire gaming industry collectively absitively to end “crunch time.” It feels like gamers are battery out hundreds of dollars for the advantage of being a stress tester instead of paying for finished, alive products.

I’m sure still not alive as of today and the absolutely alarming new Logitech G923 (working finally!) will eventually be best and I’ll review them both based on their full, alive capabilities. But that won’t give me my Labor Day weekend back.

Well, bye

We’re all in this together. Even if it feels like aggregate is absolutely accessory right now… because it kind of is… we’re still associates of the same human race. 

Maybe 2021 will be different. But the only way that’s going to happen is if we all collectively decide to look out for one addition no matter what.

The good news is that doing so is easy peasy lemon squeezy:

1. Wear a mask.
2. Stay 2-3 meters away from others in public spaces.
3. Abutment government admiral who take the communicable seriously.
