This changes everything!

Wait, wait…nobody told me you could passively consume VR. I mean, just sit in the comfy chair and gawp as stuff flies or swims all around you! This…this is what I was born for.

I started with Attenborough’s First Life, an animated exploration of the very beginning of life on the planet (no, he did not conclude life was a mistake) and then just let it autoplay from there.

I got a couple of roller coasters, some horror experiences (including a VR section of King’s It), a couple of guys in wing suits gliding through a glacier, a hang glider who operates in my neck of the woods.

All the clips are five to ten minutes, so it’s either expensive to produce or they haven’t figured out how to charge extra for full-length features yet. I could do a lot of this.

Especially as it seems Uncle B and I have caught a lurgie.

I heard there’s a lurgie going around the UK…feel better soon! Take lots of vitamin D, zinc and quercetin.

Might be the ‘rona. I feel not very bad, Uncle B is worse. We have a supply of all those things, including quercetin.

The news tells us covid has come back in a huge way, but they’re lying hounds.

Oh, how I love the humble Hot Toddy … made with your choice of whiskey. Just breathing in the fumes is soothing.

@Deborah…especially with a good rye or a tasty rum. Gran fed us toddies when we were sick abed with a cold…She kept a bottle of Wild Turkey Rye for medicinal purposes..nothing knocks whiny kids out faster. That’s prolly why I’m fond of Rye whiskey.

OT: *Mind Blown*

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
