And we've had months and months and months and months and months to prepare for CoronaVirus. Months and months and months and months and months to learn to cough into our elbows and use hand sanitiser and sort out the sick leave laws and sort out the moonlighting laws and so on and so forth. Months and months and months and months and months and months and months.

So.. How much more of a lead-time are we going to get, before community transmission takes off in our hospitals? How much more of a lead-time?

Or are we going to get it in the University residential halls first? The studnet ghettos of the University's making. The Council thinks it's credible to keep the studnets all in quarantine, like, together, like. But the students will be getting to the liquor shops for their drunken parties (18 years is the age at which drunken parties are legal) and then congregating in spaces and speading the disease around.

You take people and you cram them into spaces. You over-crowd them. And you thereby de-sensitise them to over-crowding. They're all bumping up against one another spreading their disease around.

Then who is going to teach them? Who is going to put themselves at risk?

It's okay, we don't really have teachers in the University. You can pay someone minimum wage (hey, they'll pay you for the 'privilage' of reading someone else's lecture notes to an audience). We dont' have to worry about who is going to teach them. There will be no shortage of volunteers but of course hte reasl answer is 'nobody'. Nobody will teach them anything at all. It would be irresponsible to teach them anything at all.

I'm going insane from saying the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Which is of course the point.

I feel like I did when I started intermediate school.
I was very very very very very very very very very unhappy when I first started intermediate school.
I was put in a classroom and I didn't really feel that I had intellectual peers in the classroom, at all. I didn't really get on with anyone, or like anyone overly much in the classroom.
There was a group of 'pretty girls' who were one year ahead (it was a form one and form two mixed classroom).
And then there was a girl of my form and her friend and they were sort of the 'younger adoptees' of the older girls.
And then there was the rest...
ANd the seating assignment was for me to sit next to this girl who would copy everything.
That was what she did.
And so clealy my role was supposed to be to teach her or to let her copy off me, or whatever.
And clearly (with hindsight) it was supposed to teach me not to go any faster than the slowest person in the class.
That was the lesson or moral or point of that.
But it drove me absolutely insane.
Because I didn't have the freedom to work, anymore, because I couldn't do any work, anymore. My job was to babysit her.
And I hated it. And I hated her for it.
And I didn't much like the other girls I was supposed to be friends with, either.
I was supposed to be friends with them because...
Because of the original seating assignment.
That was the point of that.

And the teacher hated me.
And the teacher had all my interests.
The teacher was the hockey coach and I played hockey before I went to intermediate. So I was stuck with her for that.
And the teacher led the symphonic band and I played violin.
So there was no escaping her.
And I don't suppose she was horrible...
But she wasn't very bright and she resented me.

Always this awful thing of teaching me a lesson...
Sloooooooooooooooooooow doooooooooooooooooooooooooooown Alex. Wait for everyone else.

And here we are. I'm 40 years old.
Slooooooooooooooooooooooooow doooooooooooooooooooooooooooooown Alex. Wait for everyone else.
Say the people with millions upon millions of dollars of taxpayers money syphoned into their accounts.
Sloooooooooooooooooooooooow doooooooooooooooooooooooooown Alex. Wait for everyone else.

Yeah, right.
