Uhm, does this mean you can only fly to 40 airports? Because if so then I’ll stick with Flight Sim X. https://t.co/yCLpGJ1JBr

There will be 40,000 airports in the new version, they’re just going super detailed (above and beyond) in the different tiers with the default airports and aircraft. https://t.co/CY9rBYTTYE

#Fire continues to rage aboard USS #BONHOMME RICHARD LHD6 at San Diego #Naval Base. These views are at dusk, around 8:30 PM local time. Fires have moved to the forward superstructure and the bridge are appears fully engulfed https://t.co/2mzzE1yuFN

This has gone from bad to very bad https://t.co/OimwPL4ECs

As an avid baseball fan, I want the game to return. But as a physician, I can't get over the hospitals unable to test all patients for COVID-19. How is that the @MLB can test every player every 2 days? Seems like we should be allocating tests to where needed.

The DoD is slated to spend roughly $71B on black budget programs alone in 2021 and the Strategic National Stockpile can't even get its quota of surgical gloves on hand. I have written about this at length. It's insanity. https://t.co/grpE4jcC6n

Every country/city has their own procedures for COVID-19. At this location, our bags were sprayed with germicide then bagged when we got off the plane. Gloves/masks required until we enter our hotel room.

Can’t leave the room. Room service provided. Temperature checks 2x/day. https://t.co/StbqFSFph2
