I almost shredded my EIP card by mistake (theirs)

Two months after the CARES Act was signed into law, millions of Americans have yet to receive stimulus payments. The process has been held up by a raft of issues, including poor communication, entirely avoidable loopholes, and unnecessary delays. Now, instead of receiving paper checks or direct deposits, about 4 million people will get prepaid debit cards, the Treasury Department announced earlier this month. But even this part of the stimulus rollout has its own problem: made-up names.

On Twitter, several people have reported that the card issuer replaced their last name with their spouse’s—identifying them with a name that is not theirs.

I can confirm this monumental fuck-up in my case. I almost shredded this payment without opening it because the name was wrong.

They are hiding the death data - resistance to crossing the 100,000 death mark

Notice how the covid-19 death count has slowed as it approached 100,000?

Here is the CDC's Daily Updates of Totals by Week and State as of today, May 27, 2020:

https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/index.htm

Please note the number of deaths reported for the latest week, ending May 23, 2020.

Covid-19 deaths plummeted from 3,206 on week ending May 16, 2020, to only 155 on week ending May 23, 2020.

But then look at the percent of expected deaths column for the last 4 weeks.

May 2nd - 111%
May 9th - 99%
May 16th - 63%
May 23rd - 8%. !!!????

This shows that they are under reporting deaths to keep the number under the artificial target of 100,000 deaths, but they cant hide the fact because it shows in the total number of expected deaths for the week.

92% of all deaths on week ending May 23rd, 2020 have not been reported. And the decline in death reports since May 2nd shows that there is a systematic bias.

Why is the media not looking at this?



Bonus surprise in the first-aid kit

My wife cut herself in the kitchen today; just a minor nick on her finger. We took out the first-aid kit to get a band-aid and at the bottom of the kit, next to the roll of gauze, what do we find but four surgical masks!

Jackpot!

Quick and easy lesson on keeping social distance (for men)

Imagine you're going to the urinals.

My wife tried to break quarantine this weekend

To go visit her family on mother's day.

But every hotel in Mexico is closed due to COVID-19.

Let me repeat, every hotel in Mexico is closed due to COVID-19.

So even though we could have stayed at her mother's, or with one of her sisters, or with her daughter, the mere fact that they're taking COVID-19 so seriously in Mexico was enough to giver her second thoughts and stay in quarantine.
