Miami mayor who was in close proximity to Brazilian politician who tested positive for Corona also now has it. He says he has no real symptoms but feels like he is starting to get a cold.

Trump was next to the Brazilian guy taking selfies.

So true! Had a weird upper respiratory thing a month ago. Wasn't the flu, was stronger than a cold. Used 3 boxes of Kleenex in 2 days, had a massive migraine the 2nd day (contemplated going to hospital but honestly couldn't move, the pain was so intense). Felt weak and barely ate for 5 days. Ran a fever of almost 100 on the 5th day? It was strange. I'd feel better and start cleaning or go to the grocery store and get wiped out. Maybe I was like your wife and mother. My mom had similar symptoms and hers turned into pneumonia partly bc Dad wouldn't let her rest and get over feeling ill. She's his caregiver and he won't accept anyone else, but some day he may have to. She's fatigued. :-(
Me and my family had an upper respiratory illness last month too.

I’m chalking it up to the coronavirus.
I honestly think the actual virus is overhyped.

Now the whole national emergency and social shut down is what has me worried. Thanks to the mass panic, our financial system is going to take a hit.

Yeah, it was yucky, but the migraine and just general weakness were the scary parts. Almost fainted cleaning the bathroom. Had to rest and then keep cleaning though. Have to finish what I start even if it takes twice to three times the amount of time it would normally take. It was hard to kick, whatever it was. Actually, I've been faint a lot lately. It's a bit strange, but think it's just my age and season in life. That weird middle age setting in, hormones, etc.

Actually, I had that too.
Like so exhausted I could barely move.

Also coughing.

But yeah, age and woman stuff, new inhaler, didn't think much of it at the time.

There was a lot of it going round. A few people said 'have you had that weird sort of cold thing that sticks around for ages?'

Makes me wonder now.

yup and apparently more than one internet provider are now offering unlimited internet access to those who "cannot afford it"

Are you fucking kidding me ? Since when did these companies become so fucking generous ?

I think they want everybody at home and on the internet getting zapped with something. Makes me think about all those claiming 5G is behind this disease.

Something is going on. I personally am gonna shut down my internet modem while I sleep.

I went to the local groceteria tonight to purchase some ice cream for dessert, and there were tons of people, with huge cartloads of everything you can imagine, lined up like idiots, while myself and everyone else in the much shorter “12 items or less” line were laughing at them.

I was also at Costco today (yes, I’m trying to catch THD, but also, my wife needed coconut sugar), and there was no panic or overloaded shopping carts.

I think the reasonable people bought supplies a few weeks ago, and as one of those people, I can’t promise I’m not going to make fun of those who are now buying six 48-packs of toilet paper and 20 boxes of macaroni at a time.

Your cat looks like Knives the Cat. He's mean and likes to scare people apparently.


You'll live.

Did demand create your store?
In a way, yes it did.

A brick and mortar store does require a lot of capital these days. But there are other business models that don't require a storefront, thus not requiring huge capital. Plus that huge amount of capital is only needed because the banks and government own all the real estate.

If you have some goods or service you can start a business for cheap. You will just never be able to scale up in the modern economy.

they manipulate by showcasing only certain things . Such as showing all airplanes empty, creating a false narritive, all the while there are planes still jam packed with people. Theres the example. im sure there will be pages of shills spinning this simple fact

It can be 5G, there’s a myriad of possible reasons to why. The conspiracy theorist in me is the government testing martial law.

The realist in me thinks the media misworded the virus and the masses registered this as some end of the world virus and now they are panic buying

To reflect on my prior post regarding 5G.
Just food for thought is that technology is a very scary and powerful thing now.

Our phones/internet hold a lot of information and at that misinformation, but they also hold an almost crucial part to living. We can pay bills, shop, etc all at our fingertips. The government can shut these people down, quarantine them and assure them to use tech to get their necessities for living. Which is sad and scary.
