    A man in China has been hospitalized with the H5N6 strain of the bird flu, one of several potentially deadly viruses that have been discovered in poultry flocks over the years, reports said Thursday.


    The 55-year-old tested positive for the bug on July 6 after he came down with a fever and was hospitalized in Sichuan, located in the southwestern section of the country, the New York Times reported, citing the state-run China Global Television Network.


    The case is one of 33 seen in the Western Pacific Region since 2014, data from the World Health Organization show, and state-run media, citing unnamed experts, said the latest infection does not pose a risk for large-scale transmission among humans, the outlet reported.

    Wow... this is horrible. I never seen a flood be so destructive enough to cause the ground to form sinkholes... Hopefully, no one on AP got hurt or into that mess, if so stay safe best you can.

    1) You don't need a bed to doink
    2) That would be terrible for anyone who tosses and turns all night

    For a place that creates many technological marvels, they do come up with crappy ideas sometimes.

    Do they still have those hotels where people sleep in those holes that looks like dog cages?

    I read online that they can hold up to 200 kg or 440 pounds, so I doubt they will break. I'm sure they been tested.

    Though it is just weird that is it made out of cardboard, I get this has to be more for the environment because I didn't know that the Olympics wasted so much. But from what I'm getting it's strong cardboard.
    And why would Olympics people have random sex with other Olympics people? I mean from my understanding these are shared places, so even if you bring a date everyone will like know you having sex, unless you're into that weird sorta of thing.

    As for what I think of the beds, I'm torn, as I like the idea, but I wonder if they really are sturdy enough because I always felt like cardboard was weak. I guess we will see once the Olympics start.

    You mean capsule hotels?

    Example: https://www.gotokyo.org/en/story/gui...pan/index.html

    I don't have a problem with these, I saw one video of a guy trying them out, and it didn't seem so bad:

    The cardboards beds are to avoid covid transmission, the cardboard will be recycled afterwards.
    And yes, Olympics Villas are orgy towns. We fill a place with hundreds of people in peak physical conditions and excitement for the competition what would you expect.

    Oh, I thought it was for the environment and not for Covid. ><

    Edit: Here this is the link I read that made it seemed like it was for the environment:
    https://www.npr.org/2021/07/06/10134...tally-friendly

    So, I guess it's for both?

    I never knew this. That's kinda crazy actually. I would think they are just there for the competition and their spouses are overseas watching them play. (Unless they come with them.)

    FYI, hundreds of Frito-Lay factory workers are going on strike. For good reason:

    So if you can, avoid eating snacks made under Frito-Lay. Thankfully, neither Utz or Cape Cod potato chips are made by them.

    84 hour workweeks? What the fuck? That's inhumane.....

    I try, the sucky part is it's like they own most of the chip brands.. monopoly much?

    But good thing I have Utz here too, they are really good. I should try to find the bacon and horseradish sauce ones again. Their dip is pretty delish too!
