Stay safe, remain vigilant! Let’s beat the living shit out of COVID-19 with the metaphorical chains and broken bottles….
Assume that in the future there will be huge leaps in human augmentation. Given a scale from completely human to completely machine, how far would you choose to augment yourself with robotics? What parts would you augment and why?
A mind that is learning and a body that never gets sick or ages. I envision nanites to repair or restore my cells allowing me to maintain my physical peak. I wanted to be stronger, jump higher, move faster and at the same time have the wisdom of the ages. I wanted to maintain an organic appearance with the nanites working on a cellular level.
In your community, are events, schools, and large gatherings forbidden or canceled due to COVID-19?
Everything is canceled… To be real, I’m scared. This is one of the few moments in life that I am actually scared. I quarantine myself because I have a cough and it is scary, I fear for my daughter and my mum. I have zero travel history, though I’ve been exposed to a lot of people every day. I hope this was just a cough and nothing more, but I don’t want to risk it. If ever this is it, I have a far better chance to survive than my mother or my daughter. I actually cried earlier when I was talking to a friend. I never want to admit that I’m scared to anyone, I despise showing weakness. However, a friend tried to check up on me and I couldn’t help myself. It is scary, but I have to be brave, we have to be brave. I’ll face COVID-19 and death like a man, not a whinny little bitch.
Has your work schedule changed due to COVID-19–i.e., onsite work changed to teleworking or shortened shifts or no work at all?
Funny enough, I went to a job interview days before the government lockdown. It was promising and I do hope I get the job or still be well after this. It was an entry-level programming job, which I qualify for, and I like the environment there. As for my schedule, yes. It has been affected , I didn’t open up shop today and enforce a strict quarantine in our household. No one goes outside the house besides me, my mother had to stay in her room. She has the highest risk in our stronghold.
What gets too much attention in the news?
The bad stuff, the ugliness of humanity. I wish they focus more on finding the cure or on how to manage it. I realized how shitty some people could get, it is our job as bloggers to use it for good and not spread ignorance. Be part of the solution, not the problem. Help those in need if you can, and if you can’t, at least be a decent person.
How do you get your news?
I minimized my use of social media and relied on official government statements and reliable media sources. As much as I hate to dismiss what is unknown, there is just no way to verify information right now. I am not the kind of man who dismisses the unknown, because that is exactly what brought us here. Yet, I now only get my information on reliable sources that can be verified.
Bonus: Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? This year how will you celebrate?
Nope, but I do want to use this part to check on my friends. I’ve been sending DMs on Twitter to some of my friends to check if they are okay. To some whom I can’t seem to get in touch with (ahem, Gemmi), please message in the comment section. Just let me know you’re okay, I know that we’re just internet friends and I couldn’t do anything for you, but my heart is with you. I know we could survive this!
