  • Wala ba tayong AntiErrorBill?

    Quoted MaoiArroyo's tweet:

    Pwede ba kayong nga ERRORISTA, less focus on those who protest. Suggestion ko lang, why not do a better job because then people won't complain. Mahirap ba intindihin yon? We need large scale testing. Our scientists have already made a more affordable rapid test kit. FUND TESTING.

  • M21 draft Episode 3 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #m21 #twitch

    Had to do 3 drafts just to jump from Gold 1 to Platinum lol. 1 draft was terrible, 2 were mediocre. 3rd draft was a WG deck (no screenshot here). At least I finally got to try some archetypes other than WB!

    Draft deck was fine, games were terrible; lots of misplays. Last chance tomorrow to rank up before rollover!

  • Casual M21 draft https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #twitch #mtgarena #mtg

    Draft went reasonably well, all things considered. Lost 2 games to mana flood/screw, but that's fine.

  • Got my internet back and immediately did an #m21 draft. 5-3 isn't great, but I guess it's not bad for a first foray? #mtg #magicarena

  • Covid19 2020-06-28

    Covid19 thoughts and updates, June 28 edition:

    • Wew, it's almost July! It's unlikely that the Metro Manila GCQ gets further loosened though.
    • A lot of new cases recently have been reported in Cebu/Region VII. Some dumbass things coming out of their local officials too.
    • Haven't had a haircut for 6 months now. People keep asking me when I'm getting one, but it doesn't really seem essential?
    • Did a grocery run Saturday afternoon. Surprisingly, fewer people than I expected. Still unable to find Choc-Nut in the grocery.
    • We had internet service people coming in this week, and a friend working in UK said to give them masks to wear and I was like "That's ridiculous, of course they'll bring their own." Apparently the expectation is a lot different in the UK, unsurprisingly.
    • (That doesn't mean I wasn't worried about having the masked strangers from the outside in our home...)
    • Despite all of these precautions, I can't help but feel quite a bit of anxiety visiting these medical facilities.
    • Watched mass via Facebook again today, after our internet came back.
    • As of last night, we are at 34803 cases (+738 from the day before, +5403 from last week), 1236 deaths (+12 from the day before, +86 from last week), 9430 recoveries (+249 from the day before, +1780 from last week). New cases still accelerating week-on-week. I read somewhere that they're planning to tweak how they report recoveries, presumably to make it look like we have less active cases? Reference.
    • Worldwide, we are at 10,087,840 cases and around 501k deaths. Ten million! Once again roughly a million new cases during the week. USA still number one, but Brazil racing to catch up. Caveat: these numbers are from Worldometer.
