Who runs for HOA governing positions? I'll tell you who, bottom feeding scum sucking power hungry Nazi scolds. miserable excuses for human beings, that's who.

The always quotable H.L. Mencken once observed, "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats." For some residents of one unnamed Tennessee neighborhood, that time is now.

A Reddit user went to the legal advice thread with a question about being evicted for working from his condo along with 24 other "offenders."

The HOA complaint -- which was verified as legit by thread moderators -- says, "It has come to our attention that you are in violation of Article VII, Section 8 of our Bylaws" which state that "Commercial business may not be maintained or transacted on any Lot or in any residential unit." As a result, "we will be invoking section II, Article 4 of the Bylaws, which allows the Board to foreclose on any property that is in violation." The HOA president demands, "You must vacate the premises by April 30, 2020."

Speaking of boredom and isolation Astronaut prick extraordinaire Scott Kelly tells us how to put up with isolation.

Being stuck at home can be challenging. When I lived on the International Space Station for nearly a year, it wasn’t easy. When I went to sleep, I was at work. When I woke up, I was still at work. Flying in space is probably the only job you absolutely cannot quit.

But I learned some things during my time up there that I’d like to share — because they are about to come in handy again, as we all confine ourselves at home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Here are a few tips on living in isolation, from someone who has been there.

We have to get CBD's Sunday Food Thread out. Preach it!

HOW PEOPLE WHO SUCK AT COOKING ARE SURVIVING QUARANTINE
Desperate for sustenance, quarantiners who are unable to cook are relying on microwavable macaroni and Lean Cuisines

“I hate cooking,” exclaims Michael, 27. When California, his state of residence, enacted a stay-at-home order in response to the spreading coronavirus, he frantically stockpiled frozen dinners. “I usually get food at work on weekdays,” he explains. “We have a fully stocked kitchen, catering or a $15 work expense for lunches. On weekends, I have some basic stuff in my kitchen, like bananas, milk and cereal, but I mostly eat out. I get brunch and dinner with friends, so I hardly cook.”


Good Lord!

Not 1. Not 2. Not 3. But 4 magnets up the old schnoz. Genius Award Winner.

An Australian astrophysicist has been admitted to hospital after getting four magnets stuck up his nose in an attempt to invent a device that stops people touching their faces during the coronavirus outbreak.

Dr Daniel Reardon, a research fellow at a Melbourne university, was building a necklace that sounds an alarm on facial contact, when the mishap occurred on Thursday night.

The 27 year-old astrophysicist, who studies pulsars and gravitational waves, said he was trying to liven up the boredom of self-isolation with the four powerful neodymium magnets.

“I have some electronic equipment but really no experience or expertise in building circuits or things,” he told Guardian Australia.
