Baby #coronavirus is celebrating his first birthday in Great shape! Special thanks to Sturgis for a wonderful half million #superspreaders ... also Trump sabotaging the US pandemic response infrastructure, doing nothing to help, and his 50 rallies!
Trump continues to aid the #coronavirus in an effort to hand a half million dead Americans to Biden, BEFORE he even gets into office. That way Trump can spend 4 years blaming the millions of dead on the #BidenHarrisAdministration
Trump NEVER jokes or laughs; he jeers. He doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults, he actually thinks in them! His mind's a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices & knee-jerk nastiness. Never an under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface.
Trump's tweets turn being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum. Rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid. He makes Nixon look trustworthy.

Doctors, microbiologists, immunologists, epidemiologists & other scientists keep saying covid is dangerous ... but the cool guys at my bar who only went to high school, avoiding science class, tell me it's not dangerous at all.
It's just too hard knowing who to believe anymore.
When the guys you went to high school with, tell you that science is stupid ... you can always sneak a casual look at the data. They probably won't even see you do it & still think you're cool.
So ... how are we doing today? Let's take a peek.

Anomolacarids ... the apex predator of the Cambrian oceans (550 million years ago). Occasionally, you will find a trilobite fossil with a bite taken out of it ... small enough that it survived a bit longer.
Top political recipients of cash from the for-profit prison industry ... who's making $$$ from putting babies in cages?

Huge corporations making millions in profit per day off of the cruelty in Trump's immigration policy.
Loading the bus for my annual three day paleontological field trip with the kids. Some rain forecasted. Wish me luck.
Back in time across #Texas ... almost 35 years doing this.
Heading out to the first stop, the Eocene on the Brazos River.
We survived the Eocene ... kids got lots of fossils. The bus is now heading back in time to the Cretaceous (120 million years ago). First a fossil oyster reef, then a pit with lots of echinoids. Dispite weather reports full of dread, we're in the sweet spot.

"Unfortunately, Trump didn't reach the level of Abraham Lincoln & didn't drive the US to civil war. That's sad. Hopefully, he'll become Herbert Hoover and at least drive them into a Great Depression."

I think #Putin was holding out hope that his Divider In Chief puppet could lead us into a Civil War. They're a bit disappointed, but now hope that the #TrumpShutdown will destroy the American economy. #Mitch seems to be giving Putin a hand.
