Lab monkeys? They'll probably freeze. Mummify. End up on some weird news site when a hunter finds 'em.

I had a minor epiphany while listening to the national anthem, as sung by the late Meatloaf. I realized why I find most solo performances of the SSB, Christmas songs, and other traditional music so disappointing. It's (partly) the same reason I'm opposed to "special music" in church services.

These songs shouldn't be performed solo, or by a quartet or choir, to be heard by an audience. They are songs for us all to sing together. So while I don't object to Meatloaf's rendition in particular, he didn't sound like a song leader. The anthem should be sung as a unified group. It's not to be sung by one person, or group of people, for others to listen to.

Does that make sense to anyone else?

DANVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A truck carrying about 100 monkeys was involved in a crash Friday in Pennsylvania, state police said as authorities searched for at least three of the monkeys that appeared to have escaped the vehicle.

The truck carrying the animals crashed with a dump truck in the afternoon in Montour County, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Andrea Pelachick told the Daily Item. The truck had been on its way to a lab, Pelachick said.

Authorities have asked residents who might see the monkeys to call state police at 570-524-2662.

It was unclear if any people or animals were injured in the crash.

Just seemed like a Roundtable type story.

Everyone still bought it tho...
 
We all shoulda gone to the New Year celebration in Chinatown... And not gone to see gramma in the home afterward.
 
December 2019, I had a nasty case of crud.
 
December 2020, had a week and a half of 102 fever.
 
December 2021... had a cold. January 2021, had another cold.
 
Maybe if I freak out enough, I'll... have a cold?
 
Watch the people selling you the stats...
 
I wonder - the first major cluster was a nursing home. Buncha patients died. None of the help. And the help was also working at other facilities. None of them died.
 
I wonder... Was this bug largely nosocomially transmitted across the country? Because specialists, including nursing specialists, often work in multiple facilities.

Quote
During a nationally televised appearance on MSNBC to criticize Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R) educational policies, a Democratic lawmaker touted his credentials as a former teacher before saying the state’s “children are more smarter” than DeSantis believes. The statement was one of numerous grammatical and factual errors made by Florida State Senator Shevrin Jones (D) on “The ReidOut with Joy Reid” Thursday night

But wait! There's more!
Quote
DeSantis “is not dealing with the things that is [sic] more important, the kitchen table issues,” like “the up in rent that has taken place in South Florida,” apparently referring to rent increases. “
