These are dark times. You may have lost your job, you might not have enough money to pay the bills, you might be sick or know someone who has the virus. You might have terrible anxiety. You might feel worthless or feel like you're not pulling your own weight. You might have fear of the unknown. You might be paranoid.

Whatever you're feeling, the point of this thread is to help you get through these tough times. Post positive things to cheer each other up. If you need help in any way, please ask. I like to think we as a community can help. 

I'll start with a silly Pokemon joke I made up, and a funny video.

Why did the Wobbuffet cross the road? Wynaut?

This is the Pastor of our school. He has been posting YouTube videos during the stay in place order. He was friends with Chris Farley and Chris’s character for living in a van down by the River is named after him. You can see see where Chris got some of the inspiration from.

Some positivity: two of my friends got married just before people started hunkering down and in lieu of a honeymoon, they designed 3D-printed N95 respirator masks to aid health care workers running low on PPE. They’ve always cared more about others than about themselves and everyone should know how awesome they are.

I'm lucky that my family/friends are still happy and healthy. I  still have a roof over my head plus food to eat and a good amount of ass paper to keep my behind clean.

Lol how does ass paper compare to anus paper, sphincter paper, and butt paper?

I'm concerned because my son will be born in about 4 weeks, and as soon as he comes out I have to take him to the US embassy in Tokyo, and then take him to the immigration office.  Not crazy about the idea of having to take a new born baby on multiple hour train rides into a city currently on lockdown.

Fun fact of the day: Greenland sharks can live to be 500 years old and grow to 24ft!

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland_shark

Around 1897 a small railroad was built in Greenland  to transport three large pieces of the Cape York meteorite to the coast to be shipped to New York City.   Other  than a few short tracks built for industrial purposes (and it is not clear if any of those used engines for pulling cars) this is the only time a conventional railroad has been built in Greenland.

Interesting. Weird that they'd do all that just for a meteorite. 

Ever heard of the barreleye fish? Super cool if you haven't. It has a transparent head with it's eyes inside it's head and fake eyes on the outside. It can rotate it's eyes as necessary to see.

Meteorites have always been very valuable,  Ancient cultures used them for their iron ore (I think they have found an Egyptian dagger made from one).  The Cape York one had been being used by the Greenland Inuit for centuries until Robert Peary (an arctic explorer) retrieved 3 of the larger pieces using the railroad.  The biggest was 31 tons and is on display to this day.  (It is not clear whether Peary gave the Inuit anything for  the pieces or if he just grabbed them.)  Five other pieces were later found.

Not familiar with that guy - there are really lots of strange critters in the sea.

I'm not kidding, this is one of the fish you can catch in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
