The Corona Chronicles – Day 33

Or: May the 4 be with you! 33 is some kind of anniversary, right? Maybe that’s also the last week of my little Corona diary, but let’s see about that. Society Is it just me or do we hear and read more about conspiracy theories around Corona lately? Be it the deep state that wants to cover that they are abusing and killing millions of kids, while the hero Trump seems to be the only one...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 32

Or: Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it Monday, you beautiful beast – let’s talk about the little Friday of last week, that was Thursday, shall we?! Society I think society did not happen last Thursday, but a lot has happened during the weekend but thats for the next entry. Politics Last Thursday our Commerce Secretary announced that they expect a recession of...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 31

Or: Existence is a series of footnotes to a vast, obscure, unfinished masterpiece Wednesday was a good day – first time since weeks I was at my Dean & David again. It’s the little things, right … Society Whats the state of society at the moment? What has changed? Is it even possible to assess if we as a race have been changed by this already? Most likely not. Yet alone, as...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 30

Or: A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people. Tuesday was Day 30 of lockdown / home office and I’m not sure I will ever catch up but let’s see … Society While politics is investing billions to save our heavy industries (in Germany that’s most and for all the automotive industry of course) there is not so mich talk about cultural things...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 29

Or: Stupidity talks, vanity acts Society Besides a new color, the week starts with some protest. After the lift of some of the restrictions and as we are allowed to protest again, some do. In general, I’m not just fine with any kind of protest but I do think this is what defines a democracy. Being free, means being able to also being against certain things. So the people attending the...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 28

Or: I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe … Society Friday the mask duty for the whole country became official, starting next week (so this) Monday. But as we are a federalist country, it’s up to the district countries how they interpret this, well, guideline then? In Berlin, there will be an obligation for public transportation, but no controlling or fines. Also...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 27

Or: He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. I’m so far behind. I don’t really find the energy at the moment. I wonder why, it’s not like I’m doing much. But maybe thats the reason … Society I think it was last Thursday when I first heard about the “Hammer Dance” strategy. Yes, I’m late to the party but as already mentioned several times, I...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 26

Or: The stable genius with absolute authority and zero responsibility Wednesday is a blur actually. Wednesday is always meeting day, so I’m quite busy anyway. I can’t even remember if I did something else … Society Was it Wednesday when Trump said, it might be a good idea to drink, or better inject disinfectants? He will later say, that was just sarcasms, but as usual the most...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 25

Or: Mia san mia. Wow, this week went by pretty fast. Not sure what happened actually. It’s kind of redundant to post the impressions from the last days, but I made notes and it’s not like that my OCD leaves me with another choice, so here we go … Society The reproduction number (R) is up again to 0,9 – everything under 1 is good, that was our goal but we had been at 0,7...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 24

Or: The greatness of German humour Week VI starts with a new color, kinda purple-blueish and that describes the mood not too bad I guess … Society Yesterday was the big day, the partly lift for the lockdown. Many shops have been allowed to open up again, following strict hygiene rules and not if they exceed a certain size. Not sure what the later should bring, but okay. I did not go out for...
