    I’m guessing that was a joke. Or an invite from some back alley mafia setup. No legitimate licensed casino in the US would risk the fallout that would come from such things happening.

    Edit: Looks like I linked correctly. There is some language in this if it offends you.

    Not sure if I linked correctly. A doctor explains how this kills. Basically I realize that I am F'd most likely if I get it. I actually called my brother to remind him he is executor on our will and to explain our life insurance situation in case the worst happens and the kids need help sorting it all out.

    They are talking of minor breaks in the food supply line right now. This can be fixed in the short term. Those that talk about shutting down for 6 months to a year arent considering what people will do if there actually is a food shortage. Crime, riots, etc will start happening. People are complacent now because they were told a month or a little more. Are you willing to accept martial law if a long quarantine happens?

    Good news is that in Seattle, they announced that infection and death have leveled off. Rural Washington is spiking though. What most of the country is doing by social distancing , stay at home etc is working. We need to continue so that reduction happens. Its good to see a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how far away it may be.

    Nobody's freaking out, just pointing out the unnecessary increase in death projections by Corona vs other world events. We still have a segment of society pushing the narrative that the Coronavirus outbreak is just a minimal event and we should just get back to normal, because it just falls into the grand scheme of people dying every year. BTW Cancer and Heart Disease can be prevented and there are treatment regiments available for those with a history. Most people who died from those two things usually made some lifestyle choice that effected their contracting that illness. Not everyone, but a very higher number.

    A little different with the COVID-19 outbreak, since I have no control over the ahole who deceides to have a Cornoaparty or is unwilling to stay 6 ft away from me in the grocery store.

    Some are out there thinking its the apocalypse also. We need and are as a society doing alot of things better and hope it continues into the future.
    Cancer is mostly by lifestyle choice? Genetics and environment are a large factor. Heart disease is maybe.

    The Washington post is free during this period and has a great tracking tool that shows state by state deaths and infections since the first case in the US. Sorry i dont have a link.

    Many keep missing the point - these heart and cancer patients don't all go to the ICU at once. There's almost always beds available in a hospital and if not they merely send you to another local one that does have an ICU or CCU bed available.

    Hospitals have never been overwhelmed like this in modern times. This is very serious and people need to take it seriously and stop making patently false parallels.

    Yeah we mainly have grinded common life to a halt to protect our already overtaxed healthcare system. Saving lives is also a bonus of this.

    The only parallel i was making is the number of deaths. I was responding to another post about people desensitized by the numbers.

    I appreciate the ability to self-soothe on here as find it therapeutic to both post my thoughts and read the thoughts of others. I hope nobody takes offense to anything I've written and I've appreciated everyone else sharing their opinions as well, regardless of whether or not I personally agree it's nice to hear different points of view.

    I also applaud the level of civil discourse happening on this thread - 60 pages in and it's all been quite respectful. Thanks everyone! :)

    I'm offended by this.

    :p

    OK not really.

    Have a day, everyone. Stay home, for fun, take all the labels off of all of your canned food and throw it all in a huge rubbermade container. That includes pet food. Let us know what's for dinner.

    Haha!
    I'm staying home, not for fun, but by choice. I work in an "essential business" so I've been reluctantly going in... and was gearing up for Monday when a coworker texted all of us on Sunday that he was sick and had the COVID-19 test done. I share the same space at work with this guy! Talked to our boss and he said it's up to me whether I show up on Monday.

    Really???

    The only people who showed up are my boss, and two apparently dumbass techs. Bossman sends out a group text today with a pic of him and his wife, eating lunch in his office, and it says "see, we're not scared!"

    Heaven forbid he close our small, not too busy right now shop, for a few days until those test results come back. I don't get it.
