  2. According to Dr. Michael Osterholm, a man made virus (if you were going there with man-made) would not be this effective.
  3. A good interview with Dr. Michael Osterholm.
  4. Leather pants? Thieves are stylish in the lower mainland.
  5. ...and a generous amount of rattle reducing Nerf material.
  6. Interesting article; YVR-YYZ made the list. https://www.visualcapitalist.com/top-airline-routes-by-revenue/?fbclid=IwAR07-YQoGPniTqsEQHGsbZk3GiyLehtWAW6eUMXtyxzdXph4iyIFbP6tgio

  13. Happened with Air France A340 overrun too.
