Given the media intensity given to the Covid 19 (otherwise known as Corona or Wuhan) virus, there seems no reason to have posts on that very specific subject in several forums Accordingly, all of those posts will be moved to "Headlines". All new items on that subject should be posted there as well. This notice will expire on 31 May, or be extended if needed. Thanks, folks.

Just a sneeze....Just a cough....

    There are sound reasons for social distancing during the Covid19 pandemic.

    Note, Adam and Jamie did not test single use disposable tissues nor did they test a face mask.

    These video clips underscore the importance of social distancing, sneeze/cough containment, and hand washing discipline.

    For those idiots who don't social distance....you're not just fools....you're also tools.

    Old ways were often smart. Not just cough used to be scary, TB and other airborne diseases made social distancing important, fleas, ticks, skin diseases, made "guest bedrooms" and guest towels and linens important because of the danger of carrying sickness, "social diseases" made some form of sexual behavior important, fear and distancing of strangers and any diseases they might carry as well as "dislike" of those who were not clean and neatly dressed might not be politically correct today but the "homeless" were feared in the past as possible sources of disease. While we were all concentrating on the breakdown of society and the loss of advanced medical care, we lost sight of the fact that some new disease or changing of an old one, might create conditions that could be bad. Some of the Pacific Islands as well as much of the Americas were almost denuded of their populations by the introduction of new diseases and the various diseases introduced into the old country, black death, etc, did a good number on it too.

    Thank you Chel for bringing this to our attention, as usual my mom and grand mother were for the most part well ahead of the times with the information they tried to pound into my head in the 1940's.

    The world is full of fools and tools. It mostly goes unpunished. Think about that guy everyone likely knows. He’s been stockpiling that sick leave for that balloon payment or VEBA account upon retirement. “I’m a f ing warrior, I never call out!” Is he or she suddenly going to change? Unlikely. Just one example of hundreds. Then there’s a guy that thinks he can make a go living in a tree. :whistle:

    How did you want to punish those who don't share your beliefs?

    I used to work in a remote mining location that required an hour's bus ride twice a day. During flu season, one person coughed during the ride and in a couple of days everyone had it. I would refer to the busses as "RVIs", or Rolling Virus Incubators.

    Mass transit, trains and buses like the left is constantly pushing in order to "save the planet" is a pandemic's best friend. They're still wanting to ban fossil fuels, leaving no other alternative. But they seem to believe that there are too many people on the planet anyway, and some quantity of us (not them) need to die off.

    That's a strawman suggestion.....you have misrepresented what Meat was expressing. Meat wasn't suggesting that people who don't share his beliefs ought be punished.

    I don't think that Meat was suggesting that he or anyone else ought embark on a campaign to punish fools and tools....mostly, fools and tools subject themselves to punishment by society in general for the foolish and toolish things that they do which do harm to others.

    Sensible folk avoid / shun fools and tools, while others make their disapproval known verbally, or even by a physical @rse kicking, depending on the severity of the foolishness or toolishness...it's society's way of sorting out stupid anti-social numnuts Urban Dictionary: numnuts ....some annoyed folk express their displeasure of elected fools and tools by ballot casting. ;)

    No, I don't think so. I think the amount of ridiculousness going on right now is extremely hilarious.

    Networks at work keeping people calm.

    Well that's what Doctor Donald J T has been asking his scientists to explore as a treatment for Covid19....:rolleyes:...as if the CDC scientists have beau coup idle time on their hands away from researching actual potentially useful, beneficial, effective vaccines and treatments.

    The appropriate response to Donald's pseudo scientifc snake oil carny barking is...

    Tools and Fools. I sneak out early for some goods. The particular store has an entrance with an employee standing guard counting. They have ribbon and temp gates for an expected bigger crowd later but.....
    Some old lady (the vulnerable ones supposedly) dives under the ribbon and enters behind the guy. Normally I don’t give two f@cks about something like this but it’s a great example of why this strategy they’re employing for this pandemic will never ever work. Think about what folks do when nobody is watching.
