  1. Two FML moments from the last 24 hours: 1. Some weeks back, I pulled a muscle while lifting some soil at my work. I stopped lifting heavy things after that, but yesterday I helped a customer lift some garden wall blocks into her car and now my right arm is killing me again. How long am I supposed to go without lifting heavy stuff until this heals? 2. The EU has extended their travel ban on outsiders into their territory again until July 1st. How long is it going to be until it stops being illegal for me to see my home again?
  2. Wouldn't surprise me, considering there's still a bunch of hospitals that haven't yet resumed elective surgeries. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/covid-19-ontario-hospitals-elective-surgeries-1.5581177 You'd think that all other disease was put on hold, the way we're going about it.
  3. You know you've been reading entirely too much about viruses when you read "Škoda HN2" (the name of an axle used on old Škoda trolleys) and your mind instead thinks of H2N2 influenza.

  6. Did I trip and fall through a membrane into another reality on New Year's? How is this a real tweet I am seeing?
  7. You are correct! The 212 is the longest route, 12.1 km in length. The second longest is the 201, which is 10.9 km. The 204 is 9.0 km in length. 53 and 152 are Škoda 9 Trs. Not my favourite of theirs (that would be the 15 TrMs, which are numbered 6617-6639), but undoubtedly a handsome vehicle. Interestingly, this type of trolleybus made it out as far west as Bergen, Norway.
  8. Sure! Imhd.sk is the largest transportation enthusiast resource in Slovakia. They cover most large cities in the country, and they have a huge section just for Bratislava. They are both in Slovak and in English, so I am attaching their trolleybus photo gallery, where you can browse photos of the vehicles according to their type: https://imhd.sk/ba/gallery/26/Trolleybuses?gsd=0 Hope you enjoy
  9. As a retail worker, one thing about these restrictions that I wouldn't mind sticking around forever, though I know it's unrealistic to expect it to, is the capacity limits on stores. My store reopened to the public a few weeks ago. At first, it was relatively calm, but lately it's turned into a total zoo, even with a capacity limit on people. Fair play if you've lost your fear of the virus, but a] not everyone has, and b] customers who crowd around one spot and are all shouting in one voice asking questions the newbie is not qualified to answer in any way continue to be the worst, virus or no virus. It feels like it's so much worse than it was during regular times, though admittedly my old job was at a much smaller store so I might be lying to myself. I can't imagine how bad it would be if everyone and their dog got to go into the store all at once.
  10. There has not been much to celebrate this year, but this really cheered me up: my grandparents sent me a package with three books - one on the history of trolleybuses in Bratislava and two on the histories of individual bus manufacturers in the former Czechoslovakia - I had ordered and sent to their apartment, in the hope that I'd get to read them when I arrived in Europe. Well, if they can't bring me to the trolleybuses, at least I could, in a small way, have the trolleybuses brought to me. Hopefully I catch the live show before I'm old and grey!
  11. Something I haven't really done in great numbers before is nature photography (that is, zeroing in on flora or fauna - I have been doing landscapes for a really long time), or shooting in manual. These are some of my first attempts at doing so. All feedback is welcomed!

  12. Seems like a practical and workable solution! https://www.timeout.com/newyork/news/the-mta-could-consider-a-reservation-only-system-for-nycs-subways-and-buses-051320
  13. Are all the cars with VISION receiving the metal crowns over the cab like 4486?
