The 432-year-old manual on social distancing...

Quonset's /. comment mentioned a long BBC article showing "The 432-year-old manual on social distancing -- In this spookily prescient booklet, people are advised to keep six feet apart, avoid shaking hands and only send one person per household out to do the shopping..."

:) NY & a poll!

Happy new year (:) NY)! Hopefully, you and others were doing OK(ay) during the crazy, rough, deadly (too many sickness and deaths even with those this old ant knew :~(), unlucky, etc. 2020 year. Hopefully, the new year (2021) will be better.

As for this old ant, it had been pretty much the same as in the past except getting infected by a virus like he usually do almost every year like the flu. Thanks God that He prepared his loving colony to live in a big rural area and do a lot activities (e.g., helping to do works like cleaning, repairing, moving, watching, yarding, etc. offline and online with the internet [all not paid, but exercising for our old bodies]) to stay busy (rarely bored and slow even though this ant is not employed as usual [gave up on searching until things get better]). This old ant still struggled with the motivations, slowness, health issues (tired more since not sleeping well and a lot overnight and overnapping a lot these days too and started wearing diapers when out due to limited access to possible contaminated restrooms) and disabilities, but is doing OK even though life got harder and stricter (less going out with others like eating out, monthly haircut appointments, didn't even go to the monthly dentist appointments for about seven months, etc. This ant still walked over mile outside the nest most of the times except when sick and the air was very bad like from the scary fires and their smokes. Wearing two masks and hoodies at the same time isn't fun too.). Ironically, Ant is about ten pounds heavier than last year too even though trying to stay active. Weird/Odd. Too many unexpectations!

Here's a related poll:

Indigo Gaming's YouTube channel shows "Insightful game analysis, reviews and retrospectives with an emphasis on historical importance and their impact on the industry. No politics..."

For an example with its long Cyberpunk Documentary in parts: #1 (47 minutes and 47 seconds), #2 (almost 1.5 hours), and #3 (underway) -- "Let’s take a journey back to the 1980’s and beyond, to discover the origins of the Cyberpunk movement, in literature, cinema, television, video games, comics and more! In this documentary miniseries, we will discover the wonders of Cyberpunk, dating back to the 1940’s, all the way through 1989, with each successive episode taking on a new decade... The long-awaited follow-up to The Origins of Cyberpunk, the 2nd episode in this miniseries delves into the boom of cyberpunk media during the 1990's, the unrest, crime rates and tech corps that inspired them, and what dark possibilities they revealed to us about our future..." They show many medias like books, (movie/f(ilm/lick))s, tel(evision/ly)/TV, video games, etc. with spoilers.

A poll for you...

Thursdays usually suck even everything is so busy between (hump/Wednes)days and Fridays. It's weird. Mondays aren't bad even though hard to get back into the weekday mood.

"Lessons from the Screenplay" and "Story Mode" YouTube Channels

Lessons from the Screenplay's YouTube video channel -- I believe that a more informed audience raises the bar for storytelling. That examining the techniques used to tell great stories makes your own writing better and your appreciation for the stories deeper. With Lessons from the Screenplay, I make videos that analyze movie scripts to examine exactly how and why they are so good at telling their stories. Part educational series and part love letter to awesome films, Lessons from the Screenplay aims to be a fun way to learn more about your favorite films and help us all become better storytellers. I’ll be releasing new videos every couple weeks, and taking suggestions about what scripts I should look at in future episodes.

Also, its 59 seconds YouTube video mentioned its new YouTube spinoff channel -- "Story Mode is a video series from the team behind Lessons from the Screenplay dedicated to exploring storytelling in video games.
