Doubly so. And sorely tested, too.
I only read the headline and I assumed it was being reported as a success story, tbh.
Sure! If any of these cruises are still available, I’m ready to sail…
I’m working on the concept of “light drinking”, it’s mainly as soon as it’s light out, we start drinking. Still some bugs to work out, but I think it’s a sure winner on the cruise.
IT works well with bottled beer or even beer in a can, of course you should directly from the bottle or the can. Just don’t open the fridge too much.
Drought beer it’s a bit more complicated. But happened once that there was a blackout when I was in a pub and the biggest problem was the cash register, the lesser problem was cooking food. Besides chees and ham sandwiches are ok with beer.
Right!?! I was reading up on the incidence of heart tissue inflammation that an anti-vaxxer told Mrs Peas was just totally killing kids. One of the doctors had a really great take. He basically said that a) Covid causes the exact same sort of heart tissue swelling and is actually deadly and b) enteroviruses can also have this impact and are a possible culprit as children have returned to schools and activities open up.
In other words, I’m very grateful for the past year of damn near perfect health for my whole family and am going to be much more wary of certain kinds of interactions now. I’m sure as hell not getting on any damned cruise ship.
Wasn’t this actually a thing about 7 years ago? Like with Jonathan Coulton and a bunch of comedians? Maybe it was just a thing @markfrauenfelder was promoting outside of BB and I conflated them.
There was nothing that would have made me want to get one one PRE-Covid. I certainly wouldn’t get on one now.
Nothing about being on a cruise ship is attractive to me. I live on the west coast, if I want a tropical vacation, I can be on Kauai in less than 6 hours (and will be later this year) so why would I want to be trapped on a boat with a million other people.
Take a hotel and turn it on it’s side, drop it in the water and fill it up with pasty white people from NJ and Fla. with all you can eat buffets and cheap drinks. Yeah, no f’ing way I’d get onboard those cesspools.
What’s funny is I’ve had friends try to sell me on the idea of going on a cruise and the more they tell me in their sales pitch, the WORSE it sounds.
Probably in large part because the buffet thing always features highly. And I hate buffets. With a passion. They gross me TF out.
If you mean JoCo cruise: That was and is a thing but has nothing to do with BB.
I think it was this, actually.
Which also has nothing to do with BB! I was listening to Jesse Thorn’s podcast at the time as well as Mark’s, so I think it just became memory pudding.
I’m light drinking right now!
But to be fair, I will be dark drinking in an hour or so, so…?
Filthy Heathen, I love you.
Oh right, there was a short lived Max Fun cruise, too
Same thoughts here. Two asymptomatic cases, successfully avoiding further spread, seems… better than what cruise ships have traditionally had to deal with from lots of endemic diseases and outbreaks of various kinds.
Which is the point we’re gradually approaching now: covid as an endemic disease we have to account for as sanely as we can in our risk assessments. Alas, society has decided the general answer is “not very sanely, at all, ever, and if you try, there’ll sometimes be a huge backlash and outpouring of rage.”
That said, you can leave me in the “I already wasn’t too keen on the idea of cruises, partly because of disease outbreaks, pre-covid” boat.
That’s quite a crowded boat to be in. Are you sure it’s safe?
