The Corona Chronicles – Day 23

Or: 80 Million experts Society I’m so happy to live among Germans. Why? Because we have around 80 million experts in this country. For everything, just ask. We know it better. After we all have been the best international football trainer, president, chief of construction for the BER and so much more, we now have 80 million virologist in this country which all know everything better than...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 22

Or: If typos are God’s way of keeping a writer humble, plot holes certainly keeps one on their knees Monday knocks at the door already – my favourite day I guess (I’m the Anti-Garfield) but I still owe myself last Thursday and Friday so here we go. Society Besides a lot of typos (Jesus …), the entry for Wednesday contained a wrong number, which is quite important: the...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 21

Or: Very stable genius It happened, I started to loose count which day we actually have, because it seems it doesn’t matter so much anymore. Yesterday was Wednesday my calendar says, so here we go … Society So, yesterday was the big day: our government aligned on the first steps for a slow exit from the current measurements in close alignment with the district countries. The later one...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 20

or: Don’t mind the space in my head So Monday, which pretended to be a Tuesday. After the most unusual Easter ever. For many that is, mine was pretty much the same actually … Society At least the German people are mesmerised by the ruling of the government for the next steps – keyword “Lockerungen” – but we will cover today, tomorrow. Confused enough now? No...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 19

or: Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently Before starting another lovely lockdown-week, I still need to close the last one. Need is correct, because it’s on my to-do list and therefore I have no other chance than to obey, be it useful or not … Society “We are getting stronger out of this crisis, then we have been before” –...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 18

or: The least productive people are usually the ones who are most in favor of holding meetings. I like this diary better with a bit of humour in it, but it’s hard to find humour in these days. Was not able to do so today I fear … Society Some people want’s to talk about a scenarios for a lift, at least partial for the lockdown. They getting attacked pretty good by the majority...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 17

or: Always look on the bright side if life Tuesday and almost back on track in several senses. Society Yesterday was a pretty grim day in France with the highest death rate so far. France has now more than 10.000 people to bemoan, while Germany is close to 2.000 now. Boy … it does not make sense to repeat these numbers here. It gets worse and worse before it gets better, that’s just...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 16

or: There are people who have money and people who are rich Yesterday was Monday and that means, we have a new colour. Week IV and we get blue, literally I think … Society I was wondering. In peace time (we are at war, aren’t we?) whenever proposing to tax the rich a bit more, it takes like three seconds until several politicians, entrepreneurs and media outlets bring on the same...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 15

or: No weekend, all weakened There was a Friday right? Yes, I think there was. And a Monday, that happens definitely too often, weekends followed by Mondays … Society The mask discussion gains momentum. First people scream already to make it mandatory whenever you are in public. As written before, I’m not against it but you only can force people to do something if they can fulfil it...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 14

Society You now read the first stories about the elderlies giving up their right for treatment, dying deliberately in the hope that their sacrifice will save another, younger person. While I might do the same if I would look back on a long and good lived life, I just don’t want to read such stuff. I think it’s horrible that rich countries like the ones we’re living in are...
