If there is one advantage to getting sick over a holiday break, no one can fault you for lying around and watching Netflix.
I finally watched Season 1 of Stranger Things. During the first episode my wife asked why the bad guys were Department of Energy. I had to remind her that the DOE carried out the Manhattan Project and the development of our nuclear arsenal.
This lead to a back and forth which eventually resulted in a comment I just had to turn into a meme.
