Wife is working from home, so hasn't been to the corporate offices (yet). I'll be disappointed if the cafeteria isn't just the world's coolest Wendy's store.

She did laugh about the strict rules around what food you can bring for lunch (sitting at your desk with a McD's bag is a bad look) and around branded clothing. Wendy's is a Coke restaurant, so you aren't allowed wearing that awesome Pepsi golf shirt you got for free 8 years ago

We had a Chick-fil-A and a Sbarro. Since then they've added Taco Bell and any number of other options. It's a wonder it took until after college for me to start gaining weight by the bucketload

Why have we not done nug rankings but we’ve done 800 frozen pizza arguments.

Is there an IRS info on coronavirus thread? This one is too full of Wendy's discussion . . .

What a nightmare (of our own creation)!

I'm 20 away and if I were a little bit north I would definitely be more than 30 away, even from the next northern location. It sucks.

I'm about 30-40 mins away from the nearest Wendy's. To think of it, Subway and McDonalds are the only fast food place within 20 mins of where I live. Otherwise I would have to drive to West Lafayette or maybe Watseka, IL.

Because once you've had Popeyes spicy chicken strips, all other nuggets become completely obsolete

Thank you for posting Craig's thread. Every time I see another story in a reputable publication (NYT had one this week) that heavily implies that things aren't going to be anything resembling normal even after COVID numbers have fallen past the point where you'd expect things to be somewhat normal, I start going into "why should I give a horsefeathers about anything if this is never going to end" depression/nihilistic mode and need this thread to give me a (small, granted) pick-me-up.

what the hell is wrong with you weirdos

Weddings are great, since it is a bunch of age appropriate people drinking and being dumb. Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, not so much.

I like a good party but cannot stand the expectation of people expecting their cousins to attend their children's birthday parties. A 10 year olds party should be 10 other 10 years olds and some, but not all of their parents. It should be drop off and GTFO.


bday parties for kids who are not my children or the children of my good friends can f off, weddings are fun. my wife makes fun of me for getting excited for weddings and for insisting on attending the ceremony. but it's like, the ceremony is the wedding, and part of the whole ritual is going to the ceremony, filling the dead time, then partying. but it's gotta be earned; business, then pleasure. vegetables, then dessert

New York will start allowing fans at sporting events and other large entertainment venues at 10% capacity starting in less than two weeks. The easing has started. I *still* think a mostly normal Opening Day is in play. That's still 6.5 weeks away, and think about where we were 6.5 weeks ago compared to now.

If you squint you can kind of see the rate of drop in cases slow down a little bit this week. But I've thought that at mid-week the past couple of weeks, and then we usually get a few good days to balance it out, so I'm not sure. Meanwhile, the drop in hospitalizations is accelerating a tiny bit, which is what I really want to see. I trust the hospital stat more than any other number because of the way it is collected. Deaths are finally starting to fall, but there's so many problems with that number that you never how it will behave. Some deaths are added to the total within days, others take months.

COVID19-projections is starting to discount vaccine efficacy and increase their transmission projections because of the variants, which causes them to see a prolonged plateau in cases from now to early April. I'm not convinced, but if that does happen, we should still see hospitalizations and deaths continue to decrease.

Same type of thing I posted the other day. Change in US hospital census from Tuesday to Wednesday for recent weeks:

Today: -2.8%
1 week ago: -1.7%
2 weeks ago: -1.4%
3 weeks ago: +1.2%

The drop in hospitalizations is starting to decouple from cases, perhaps, as vaccines start to really take effect.
