Wall-e.It's probably BS, but there's a belief that Twinkies are so artificial and contain so many preservatives that it's impossible for them to spoil.
The "Zombieland" movie references this belief, but reminds us that Twinkies actually *DO* have an expiration date.
For your benefit (and others) I'm going to copy/paste info from an emergency room physician concerning this burgeoning pandemic. Note: don't expect to not contract this. 80% of the people who get this will not require clinical support, won't have to go to a facility, see a doctor, be tested. However, the 20% who do, hopefully will have the benefit of not severely overburdened medical facilities. We aren't going to stop this, but WE CAN SLOW IT DOWN. We can spread out the bell curve and lower it's peak. The lower that peak, the more lives we save!My friend was just telling me that he was very sick over the weekend. The nurse asked him if he traveled and he said yes. He went to Cali, plus a, few seminars that he had to travel to by car. The nurse didn't test him for COVID-19. Nothing came of it. He got better today, and will be at work tomorrow.
This is the issue. We aren't taking this virus seriously because we think it's not going to affect us. If he truly has COVID-19 he's going to possibly infect many more at work, the store, etc. SMH
Saw on TV news last night. Symptoms can appear as early as 2 days, but the likely window is 5-12 days. 14 days is the period they seem to be using to screen people who they believe may have been exposed before deciding that they are not infected. Could that actually be more than 14 days in some cases? Possibly, but pretty unlikely.actually do you? There is a 14 day incubation period and even medical professionals have stated that often there are no symtoms until it is full blown .......
hopefully enough people are intelligent about quarantine procedures
Yeah, I do, that's why I said 'hopefully'You don't know many actual people do you?
And my guess is its spreading rapidly ... the horse is long out of the barn on this one and now the only real question is how many people will become seriously ill.
You're comments are very often pretty indecipherably cryptic. Flippant, off hand, assume a lot concerning what your reader might have read already, assuming that the reader knows what you're referencing without your bothering to be specific.holy crap guys, just read IronWing's comment that I quoted.
I feel like AT's best work is lost on all you people trying to be so obnoxiously serious all the damn time.
