Have y'all seen this?

Man found living in Chicago airport for three months 'due to fear of Covid' | Coronavirus | The Guardian

The article, and the linked source

Man lived inside O’Hare for 3 months before detection, prosecutors say - Chicago Tribune

are disappointingly thin on details of how he lived. Just "other passengers were giving him food". Obviously there are bathrooms and water. From the mugshot I'm guessing no beard trimmer.

Yeah, I'm sorry, but are they really trying to push "peloton bike != basic as fuck"? Because keep trying.

Most internet enabled things like that are pretty insecure, so I can see where it could be an issue.

Not on the level of Trump's phone, or Trump himself, though. Just something that would probably need to be addressed somehow. The difference: Biden will probably listen to people who know what they're talking about, and make the necessary adjustments to mitigate the risks.

I'm pretty sure the Obamas have had a Peloton, and I'm pretty sure the Secret Service made modifications to the bike to meet their safety requirements.

Yeah, I'm sure it'd be relatively easy to do if you have the resources.

And while it is an odd choice of story right out of the gate, my point is that it's not only about 'optics' like tan suits and Dijon.
