Stuck-At-Home Open Thread: Good News Weekends!

Even in bad times, good things happen. What good things are happening in your life or in the world?

Hello everyone,

Self-isolation continues! For the foreseeable future, everyone will be stuck at home a lot more than normal. So, let’s get through it together, staying happy, healthy, and sane.

We have a daily topic, but you do not need to stay on-topic. Talk about whatever, it’s an open thread!


It’s the weekend. I know that’s only theoretical at this point, but let’s pretend it matters.

When bad things happen, good things disappear into the background. Let’s bring those forward all weekend: What good things are happening in the world, or in your life?

(Unless it’s really important/vital, let’s try to save any unhappy/bad stuff for Monday)


A reminder: We will generally try have a light touch on moderation. However, we do expect researched, factual information to be posted. Misinformation (intentional or accidental) and unfounded fear-mongering will be removed. Yes, there’s a fine line at times, especially when it involves speculation in a serious situation. We’ll figure it out as we go. Bear with us please.
