10/10 thread would read again.
From the back and forth arguments to the whole “I’ll live in my house for years on end dude”. Some serious drama queens.
Using your logic, you ALREADY risk killing people by spreading the flu or simply having a fuck up while driving. It’s some real sound logic to live by.

Most people won’t live in their house for more than a month, after that sorry game on. You take responsibility for your own health and don’t rely on others living in bubble wrap to help you out. Show me where on the “doll of life”, life touched you.

I will add I put some blame on the press, they’ve made everything these past 3+ years an 11, so now nothing is.

PornHub keeps shoving cam girl ads in my face. I do not want cam girls.
But a thought occurred to me: With all these people locked in their homes theres probably gonna be a lot more guys watching cam girls. That increases demand.
HOWEVER: Theres also gonna be way more girls camming out of neccessity and boredom, so THAT will increase supply.
Are prices going to move or stay the same as before the quarantine?
Don't you catch computer viruses watching things like PornHub? :confused:

“Man up” is a funny statement from someone admitting he’s willing to hide out in his house for years. You’re the guy who claims to have never had a vacation, so your opinion is next to worthless on the “how to enjoy life” scale. If you want to live life hiding in your house for years (which is what we were discussing - a potential quarantine of years), be my guest - stand out of the way while the rest of us live life.
Yeah, just go out there and live you asshole life, man. So what if you get covid-19 and infect your 2.5 other people, fuck them. It's all about you, you shit! Now get lost.

Had no idea people still watched that site. That one ALWAYS buffers for me on fast forwards even like with my 400mb connection. The other sites fly! Never wanted to toss a fist into a monitor so bad then when i was on that site. If anyone is in shock i am open about the sites, well your obviously just full of yourself if everyone here with their rigs has not entertained at least one video streaming site. Like come on now.

I'm the dude who would walk into a dollar general and buy super absorbent maxipads without a care in the world. I am sure some idiot thinks they are for me but well, they aren't. Lived in a house with 3 people who would sync pms, talk about fun! It's when a closed locked door and such sites came in handy at various times!

You are bad at math, what is the overall mortality rate on this new virus? 3%, 5? Fuck it let’s say it’s 10%. The other 90% of the planet should just stop because of that? Uh no.

Time to increase the Geritol dosage - maybe then you might actually understand what we discussed earlier.
Fuck you asshole. I read what you were saying. Look, what's gonna happen in 2 or 3 years, you don't know. Stop fucking pretending. And stop declaring your so called right to go out there and be a disease vector. It's not your right.

I already said what I thought was acceptable and it got your panties in a wad. You’re willing to (potentially) give up years of your life because you think it might make you safe. What was it a famous person once said about giving up freedoms for security?

Telling people to hide in their homes for 12+ months will never float - not only with me, but for the vast majority of people. You and Moses over there might be fine doing that, but back in the real world, the rest of us won’t. And I’m an introvert saying this.
Speak for yourself. You're a poor excuse for an introvert.

Huh? What are you tripping on? I said 2.5 is the number of people that the infected go on to infect on average who contract covid-19. It's the R factor, look it up. For the flu it's 1.3%. And bad at math, I'm not. In fact I have a degree in mathematics.

I‘m really not sure what your issue is, but I frankly don’t care. What I’ve gathered from your posts here is that you’re like 90 years old, claim to have never been on a vacation, and seem to have lived a pretty weird life. Wait, nevermind, that explains it all.
Weird life, yeah, not a conformist POS like you! Fuck you dude. You're trying to gather who I am from my posts. Ad hominem, any? Deal with what I say, not your fucked up idea of who I am. I dig myself, now stop trying to put me down and get the fuck out of my life.

I know, I know... no politics. But, seriously, it's starting to feel like I live in Soviet Russia now.
Cue the Russian Reversal jokes!

In Soviet Russia, it is starting to feel like living in YOU!

. . .

wait, that makes no sense. What a country!

you seriously dont think when the heath officials come in the workers have a different mode?
When done properly, the inspections are surprise inspections. Locally, they catch restaurants with near-failing grades several times per month. Most restaurants pass with a 90 or higher. You are vastly overestimating how sloppy and bad food prep workers can be. In most cases, health inspectors won't have any problems to find because there aren't that many, certainly not so many that are catastrophic. You're being sensationalistic.

Yeah this entire scare is worthy of memes and jokes at this point. I took a friend to welfare and well let tell ya how they handled things. Keep in mind they usually have 300+ people in this place at any given time and now they let in only a few at a time. Every minority and their 10+ kids standing in what i believe was a 200+ person line EASILY outside this place . Sorry but in California the minorities in other states ARE THE MAJORITY here LOL.:D

Such a mess and of course my friend got screwed on much needed stamps, i have to feed this woman for a short bit cause i can't be a big enough asshole to not share mine and let her starve. We going for staple food prob next week like taters,eggs rice and whatever can make big portions and outlast a nuclear holocaust.

Edit: bought a 20 pack or something of 1000 tp sheets like 4 months ago, BEST INVESTMENT EVER! Still got like 10 rolls left.

Adblock seems to speed up Pornhub a lot, and it now has free 1080p videos.

LOL i love this derail its perfection at its finest dude. Yeah i don't bother with it. Its inferior in quality to other stuff i think. No room for inferior things. Talk about blue balling when the god damn video buffers like what the actual fuck.

Edit: I use adblock on Opera GX and its MILES faster then trash chrome. Don't believe me? Open up both and do some tests. Maybe PornHub won't buffer on Opera its been a minute since i last went there LOL.

Funny thing is they shut down NYC over a little bit of snow, but not over a deadly virus.
...except they kinda did shut it down over a virus. I watched Louis Rossmann ride his bike through an almost completely empty Times Square the other day.

Walmarts website said my local branch was open 24/7.
Drove over last night to pick up whatever I could. They had a sign on the door saying Closed.
A much smaller sign said they would only be open between 7 and 8:30. Really wish those signs were much bigger and the website was kept up to date. Also worried they may be cleaned out tomorrow morning.
Yeah, I definitely wouldn't expect per-store hours to be correct at this point. Some places are having to update/change their schedules more than once per day, and how would you even show things like senior hours without reformatting the page?

Checked walmart this morning. they have updated hours for my local store and I assume most others.
Went to walmart. They had a massive crowd well before opening. many of the people looked anxious and a few even seemed excitable. Knowing what the average Walmarter is like on a good day, I drove down the road and hit up Food Lion.
Very small group. Nobody seemed anxious. When they opened the doors everyone was very polite, no shoving, no running, no hostility, and no hoarding. The whole gang was cool and mellow inside the store while rolling around their carts.
Only downside is they were out of most canned goods except gross stuff like beets, and of course most boxed dinners. And hand soap, and most popular types of dish soap and clothing soap. They had plenty of meat but of course a person can only eat so much before it goes bad, so no one was stockpiling it.
Checkout was also polite and courteous and non-rushed.

SO, in at least one section of America people are still being cool.
