@narfcake@RiotDemon@yakkoTDI And I wonder how long it will be before people feel safe with really close contact like that even if the pandemic becomes less of a threat.
I’m also wondering if our using so many cleaning products and sanitizers will lead to other, non-virus problems, the way antibiotic overuse has created resistant strains of bacteria… argh.
Has anyone under 30 even seen that kind of TV static? Ever since the 90s TVs have been putting up an electric blue screen when there’s no signal, and that was still in the analog days, when static was even a thing.
(Whole generations will never get that William Gibson line from Neuromancer: “The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.”)
And the SMPTE color bars have to be even more obscure, unless you’re a video nerd .
Kids today think TV comes over the internet, where you’ll never see either of those things. So yeah, get off my lawn.
