Some sad news to share today as Rick May, known to some PC gamers as being the voice of the Soldier class in Team Fortress 2 has died after catching the Covid-19 Coronavirus.

The news was shared by Rekindle School, an independent educational program located in the USA where May was also a teacher. They said that after suffering a stroke in February, May had caught the Covid-19 Coronavirus while recovering in a nursing home.

John Patrick Lowrie, who voices the Sniper class in Team Fortress 2 also shared a post on Facebook from another Larry Albert, mentioning that amongst other things:

Every recording session with him was always laugh-filled. Yet when the lights went down or the engineer said, “rolling” he was the consummate professional. He worked hard to get it right and we could always depend on him to deliver.

Rick May did a lot of things besides voicing for Valve in TF2 including multiple other games like Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam, Star Fox 64 and more.

R.I.P Rick May, our TF2 Soldier.

You can actually die of too much water, so I wouldn't bet pasta intoxication isn't a thing as well... ;-)

But... Why did you buy so much?

because it's cheap pasta and rice, both stuff I got plenty. Just in case, but I didn't do it when people were panic buying it was way before. If you like to stock do it, but don't panic buy over the supermarkets that's how the virus spreads.
