  1. Corona actually is bad there and it wouldn't surprise me if their NHS became overwhelmed.
  2. That meal looks better than any meal I've had in years. I am a believer in the power of masks, but only if used properly. Imo for any kind of close social gathering I wouldn't bother, because one of the key rules is no talking. A basic mask is poor protection against a face-to-face conversation, just like how body armor is poor protection against artillery. For those who are worried about getting sick the only two options are to wear and not touch/remove a good mask (such as n95) or don't let anyone talk near your face.
  3. Chili can be good either way, just don't bother complaining if you eat a lot of beans and then your butthole blasts like a cannon.
  4. Corona can't be stopped because the behavior of idiots is indistinguishable from the behavior of someone intentionally trying to spread disease, and disease-spreading retards outnumber cautious people by at least 100 to 1. More importantly there's no shortage of retards in positions of leadership. I could spend all night typing out examples of extreme incompetence from the slaughterhouse where I work. This coming flu season will be interesting to see.
  5. Quick quibble- is it easy to relocate with the whole Corona thing still going on? I'm not sure it's true that everyone is free to leave, at least not to somewhere nice.
  6. I work in a crowded pork slaughterhouse, one which was hit by coronavirus. The people who didn't wear their masks properly were the people who got sick. People who wear their masks properly aren't getting sick. At this point I have no respect for the myth that masks don't protect from coronavirus, it's just a fact that they do. That being said masks are a massive pita and requiring everyone to wear one everywhere is nonsense. A big fine or jail time is complete madness.
  7. I don't believe there will be a bacon shortage, but if one does happen you should blame the extreme incompetence of the management of meat packing plants. There was no reason for so many plants to close down except for the plant management being full-retard cacksucker losers, which is normal in the industry.
  8. I don't understand alcoholism at all, so I don't emotionally feel anything for those who would suffer potentially serious medical problems from alcohol withdrawal if stores closed. My guess is the real reason liquor stores are allowed to operate mid-pandemic is because the govt wants to avoid the inconvenience of lawsuits.
  9. I might as well chime in as the resident coronavirus doomsayer and abrasive atheist. This looks like complete madness. Fining people $500 for going to church in the USA, even when they stay in their car and don't get out, it wasn't that long ago that such a thing was completely unimaginable. Our founding fathers would have responded forcefully to such a violation. Peaceful assembly is rule #1 of our government, or it would be if we had a constitution. However, at the personal level imo going to church now is kinda dumb. Y'all don't need church. Stay home. The typical American christian doesn't care enough about their "faith" to read a bible at home, so maybe it isn't worth people's lives just to dress up nice and go engage in meaningless virtue-signalling.
  10. Wtf did I just see? I had no idea this was a thing! I'm sure I've never seen it around here.
  11. Covid stays dangerous surprisingly long outside the body, this is one of the reasons why it is far more contageous than the flu. As for the intelligence of Americans, let me put it this way. I work in a big place with thousands of employees. In the last 9+ years the number of coworkers I've seen wash their hands properly, or even try, is in the low single digits. Of those people iirc one was an American and the others were black Africans.
  12. I was going to continue ignoring this stupid thread but for some reason tonight I decided nah, let's do this. Comparing early regional covid deaths with global death rates for endemic problems is nonsense. We already passed the point where covid became the #1 top killer in the USA other than abortions. Happened earlier this week. Let me add as a side note that like most of us here I see abortion as unbelievably heinous and vile. Even with our current precautions covid is multiplying something like 10x per two weeks, which means we are just about to see covid pass abortion or all heart problems together as the top killer. This is serious. It is going to become extremely serious. You can't stop it, so wash your hands and keep your face clean. I don't want to see anyone here die to this.
  13. No problems here in small town Iowa. The only thing I've seen run low is pasta and sauce, and those were all back on the shelves today. I've been keeping my freezer full of good meat and cheese since before covid existed, but of course a long power outage would be a serious problem. I won't have any fast food until this whole thing calms down. It's too risky. I feel bad for the good restaurants (real food) that are losing business. I would take the risk to go out and support as many local restaurants as I could but I have a stuffy nose right now so it wouldn't make sense. #1 it's hard to enjoy food with a stuffy nose and #2 if my super-mild sinus problem is actually stealth covid I don't want to make a hundred other people sick.
  14. I work in an actually essential job. My place makes tens of millions of pounds of food each week. The gun&ammo business is not even remotely as essential, and in places the pandemic hits hard they should shut down to prevent covid from spreading in the community and infecting those of us who are more essential. I do not believe in an India or Wuhan-style lockdown, but fact is there are different tiers of importance and this is pretty low. Nobody who is rushing out now to buy their first sheety gun is going to be worth anything with it, it's just a fantasy for low-quality thinkers. The time to get ready was long ago.
