I have been archery practicing with 3 different bows
a crossbow, a compound bow and a recurve bow

in the weapons cache I have fully legal Class III registered complete with Federal Stamp a fully automatic ak47 with a 75 round drum magazine!!!!
robbers beware


If somebody tries to steal your hoarded toilet paper and food, kill them quietly with a bow. If you shoot somebody, it will give away your location and as a result you will have to deal with a horde of people.



Cruise ship industry won't be getting a bailout by America. Companies headquarters are in Panama, Bermuda, and Liberia. Since they pay taxes to those nations, they can ask for a bailout from them.

I watch the video below to see some of the reasons the Relief bill took so long to pass. Many Democrats disappeared and refused to debate their proposals on the floor in front of a camera. I see why. They wanted to add a corporate diversity law putting quotas on corporate boards based on race and sex into the relief bill and eliminate the Postal Service's debt. They wanted Student loan forgiveness and add an election rule to make all States have same day voter registration. Probably because it benefits them. The Dems also want all airlines to go carbon neutral by 2025 if they want to benefit from the relief bill. Every airline has to tell passengers on every flight what the greenhouse emissions are too. They want to subsidize retirement plans for newspaper employees. Got to reward anti Trump journalists for their good work! $15 hr minimum wage. That's only good if you have a job of course. This is just a sample of 1400 pages of proposals the Dems tried to sneak in the relief bill. Lots of stuff in there that has nothing to do with the virus, protecting the economy, saving jobs and business, giving relief to the unemployed, and saving lives but hey, if you survive the virus you will live in a greener nation.

Hey everyone from Texas, I cleared mine was thankfully mild, as we've all learned doesn't matter a whole lot if you're young or old but I  didn't need a respirator and mostly had flu symptoms minus shortness of breath.

Good luck with recovery.   How have you quarantined yourself?  I suspect if anyone in my household gets it, we will all get it as everything is shared. 

Fathertime!

Crazily enough I was fine after 3 or so days. After that they followed up and didnt have any symptoms.

We were already approved to work remote and I had 4 extra weeks of PTO if I needed due to the virus but I continued after I got back to East Texas.


Thankfully in the suburban Hospital I went to it was early. Now? Man who knows... would be way worse with less attention.

It's been 5 weeks since Italy started their lockdown and they are still reporting upticks in new infections and death with 712 dying today. Italy has also had 40 doctors die.

We've been in national lockdown only 3 weeks.  2 initial weeks were localized lockdowns that did not work out very well.  Deaths will continue to rise despite the number of infections falling.  Have to consider those most likely to pass on ar those that are in intensive care.  Their median stay in intensive care is around 3 weeks.  New intensive care cases seem to be falling from a high of around 250 new cases per day to around a hundred.

Even the national lockdown was staggered a bit, work ok, then only essential work.  Travelling home longer distances was ok, then only for very urgent matters. Going from trusting folks to comply, then blocking roads and strict controls; from a 200 buck fine to thousands.

The virus is patient, using every opportunity infect and stretch things out.  We have to be more patient than the virus by staying out of reach and hope it has not found new ways to propagate, like via mosquitoes and then on to other vectors like domestic pets.

That's good news, Ivan.  Now you can pick up your green card for likely being immune and not a danger to others.  Go back to regular work/travels and give blood regularly so your plasma can help give others immunity.  (written in the context of some time in the near future)

Sounds pretty bad since you were in the hospital. Certainly much worse than just the regular flu which is already miserable enough.

Hi Moby


Ilona cleaned my place today. She told me she was able to pay the rent for the next month with the help of a friend. And I am helping her with food. She does not ask me for money and is still hanging on to the $50 bill I gave her. From the people I've come in contact with everyone here is especially kind to one another. I think everyone knows it is time put down differences and realize what is important and what is not.




I am going to post this on the coronavirus and business in Georgia threads. 


Take care,

The virus is patient....


'Patient' is too gentle to my ear.  This sonofabitch pathogen is persistent as well as lethal and highly contagious.     

Accordingly, our responses must be resolute.

If the first part is accurate, then we (In the US) are not doing our part of being resolute...maybe we can blame china for that.

Well, the irony

Now the UK Health Minister has the virus .

WHY are these guys tested, when NHS staff aren't ?..





Those who know Russians - they oft claim, " not to give a sh*t" and this video is a scary reminder of why quarantining Russians seems to apply to everyone else ...

Glad you pulled through it Ivan. Your body will possess a high level of antibodies so it's unlikely you will get it again anytime soon but still be safe. We are still learning the virus's behavior and you may get reinfected. Lifetime immunity is not guaranteed, especially if the virus mutates.

Hey Ivan-

I'm glad to hear you survived the onslaught! I hope you feel better soon...

I am curious how the process of requesting, then getting, tested went. And also the test itself. Was it still that invasive (as Trump described it) - *stuck the long swab way up your nose, turn right to your eyes* method?

Do you mind sharing this experience with us since I believe you are the first (only?) *recorded* member to have gone through this at this time.

Nope, I speculated early on when deaths began to rise in Italy that it may not be just the elderly and/or those with underlying health conditions ;) Look back about three weeks ago in this thread and you'll find it, and no doubt your subsequent put down off such an idea.

Apparently now not only have Boris Johnson & health secretary Matt Hancock have Coronavirus but now also the Chief Medical Advisor, Chris Witty (the weird bald looking guy) also is showing symptoms of having it:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52060791

So the Chief Medical Advisor was either not following his own advice or that advice was flawed, rather embarrassing for him I would have thought, lol.

16 year old lass dies in France


There was a report of a teen dying in America recently.

Member of the Washington DC mayor's staff died from the virus. She looks doesn't look old.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/member-of-dc-mayors-staff-dies-from-coronavirus/ar-BB11NYJi?ocid=spartandhp


Italy records their highest death toll to date with 919 dead in a day. At that pace, in three days Italy will have as much dead as China had in three months if anybody still wants to believe China's numbers.

http://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/


Hopefully we find a vaccine. There are too many stupid people in the world where it makes it impossible to eliminate the virus from our bodies. Got people spitting on others, spitting inside public transportations, licking things including a toilet to show the world they aren't scared of the virus. Got teens coughing on fruits and vegetables at food markets. There's one woman in Wuhan that went around spitting on her neighbors doorknobs.

Dishwashing soap is now disappearing from stores. Since there are no hand sanitizers and antibacterial soap on the shelves, people are buying dishwashing soap as a replacement.

Forced perspective.

I am reminded of H.G. Wells' fictional 'War of the Worlds'. Not the 19th century novel, but the 1950 (?) made-for-film dramatization of the novel.

Seem rather crazy how we easily depart with reality and perspective.

Today, global population is at 7.8 billion (7,754,000,000 +), and so far today, coronavirus, in 199 countries, had infected 585,000+ and taken 26,800+ lives. That's 0.00075% and 0.00035% respectively.

The world stopped in the fictional story where people gathered around a 'radio' listening to the marauding 'invisible' attackers killing earth's population one by one.

We have 3 times the number of dead in China.  Been that way for a while.

Good news is that the number of new cases has been fairly level for almost a week with active cases starting to look like they are following the same trend.

Nearly a thousand deaths from Coronavirus a day now in Italy, around 10,000 deaths in Italy so far:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52067673

So death rate rising there of recent. Cases may have levelled off but are still high and adding to the overall total.

It would be expected that deaths linger, even if there is a decline in new cases.  Most are ICU cases for weeks.  I expect the toll will be high in the weeks to come before starting to drop.

In the beginning when infections start to rise there are few deaths, then they creep up on you around 14 days later.
