    Babylon 5 reboot News & Discussion Thread

    My interest was raised until I got to the part that it will be for the CW. I just remember when TNT wanted to sex up B5 Crusade and feel like CW will want the same for this reboot.

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    Yep. Hordes of bored teens that love spending time at Walmart now that school is done for the year. Not to mention with the slowdown in people getting vaccinated a lot of the 20-30 crowd are also probably not vaccinated either. Meanwhile, pretty sure some of the elderly that were still masked...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    So they just did a mass vaccination clinic in my county within a 90 minute walk of where I live(close by Indiana standards). Out of 1000 J&J doses they were ready to administer, only 277 were used. The last mass clinic they did a month previous(Moderna) they administered 924. We're just...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    There's an internal email circulating the net that Walmart will pay their employees $75 upon proof of vaccination so I guess that will be voluntary disclosure. Still, enforcement is going to be difficult. Walmart underwent a management restructure in the middle of the pandemic and a lot of...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    It's sadly not about the employees' health; they're worried about employees infecting customers. If they cared about employees' health they would actually have enforced mask mandates instead of just posting signs and doing nothing.

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    So I had my second shot and dear Lord yes it hit me way harder than the first one. My shoulder was a lot more sore, then came general body aches, then came the chills and low-grade fever. When my fever finally started coming down it was replaced with a headache. Sadly, I can't be sure of the...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    As a retail worker, thank you. I can't tell you how many customers blatantly lied about not being able to wear a mask. At least when they lied about their support animals I usually didn't need to fear disease and/or death. I'm rather annoyed that they used BMI as the basis for their story...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    Well excellent...just as the slowdown in demand starts, the covid19 variants have arrived in my county. Only 7 so far, but they're not testing every positive to check if it's a variant.

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    My locality only has around 38% vaccinated to 1 shot, a little over 27% fully vaccinated, and they're already predicting drop-offs in demand from mid-May onwards. From a neighboring county: “We were prepared to administer 700 doses, but the response was not what we anticipated, and so we ended...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    That doesn't happen in Indiana. Too many wing-nuts with guns whining about "their rights" to do whatever they want whenever they way to whoever they want. Couldn't even pass a real mask mandate in the first place because the police were publicly stating they were against it (governor did pass...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    I got my first dose of the Moderna vaccine yesterday. Only side-effect so far is a bit of soreness around the shot site which might be more from the needle than anything else. Never had a shot bruise me before but I've lost a lot of weight in the past year so a lot less padding in the arm than...

    Things in media that scared you as a kid.

    I never saw the whole movie until I was an adult (and I actually saw the sequel before the original) but as a kid (couldn't have been older than 10 at the max)I did see the scene from The Terminator where the T-800 is in a room working on repairs and covering up his damaged "eye." Until my...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    I probably should have clarified it as "essential" workers rather than essential workers. Healthcare and police obviously are essential and got put at the head of the line. It's just frustrating that grocery/retail workers, who bore the brunt of a lot of idiot super spreaders, who couldn't apply...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    I finally became eligible and registered for a shot, the first of which will be three weeks from now, only to discover next week they'll open up eligibility to all ages the vaccines are tested for (16 and up). Got to love how I was considered an essential worker (basically making it impossible...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    His argument relies on the idea that the recent drop in cases can be attributed to most people already having had it and that there are always more cases than are reported. The problem is testing in the US has never been comprehensive enough to make such suggestions.

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    If you wanted a bit of evidence of how clueless my fellow employees at work are about mask wearing, corporate required the stores to put up these fliers for employees: I'd say about 80% of my coworkers do off the nose, 10% do off the face and/or hanging from ear, and 5% not even bothering to...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    Essential business doesn't mean you have to let them in. Online Grocery/Curbside Pickup is available in many stores (meaning you don't actually have to enter the store to shop) but that doesn't stop customers who don't wear masks from coming in anyway. I wasn't exaggerating when I said they're...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    Walmart does not enforce mask mandates. I want that abundantly clear. Individual stores may somewhat enforce them, but even there that's usually because the local health department got sicced on them. Corporate sent out a memo stating that if a customer refuses to wear a mask, period, they can...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

    My county has a per capita rate of around 100, the hospital is full up, exceeding how bad it was back in March. The primary school corporation is on eLearning until next year. There was an article on the first local medical worker to die from covid19. It was covered less than the K9 dog that...
