The geriatric plague really is our best hope at this point. We're getting closer and closer to the plot of Death Race 2050 as is.

It'll be interesting to see what will happen if this breaks out at any of the centers where I work, or in similar places like train yards. At my center alone it's somewhere between 1/3-1/2 of a mile of trailers full of freight from floor to ceiling/front to back that we send out each night on just one of three shifts, and we're far from the largest in the network. You can't just hit the off switch on something like that for a couple weeks. When we shut down for an eight hour period due to weather it takes about five days to get caught up. I'm guessing if this continues to spread the CDC will have to modify the quarantine protocol and give older folks and those with compromised immune systems the freedom to forgo work without penalty while taking for granted that a lot of working age adults are going to get sick but will ultimately be fine.

Not always and definitely not everywhere.

The same racist and xenophobic shit is going on here, albeit less than perhaps over there.

too bad (josh's preferred insult here) nor any of his cabinet will get it. He’s skated by his entire life Scott free and been bailed out literally and figuratively and had good luck that he’ll avoid this as well. Never been held to account for anything.

Watch him use this as a reason to cancel it postpone the election.

Manila will be on lockdown starting March 16th. Going in and out of the city via land, sea and air is prohibited and police will be setting up checkpoints. :oldryan:

i worked today and the IT department was barren. i saw one dude in 6 hours and he was quite calm and controlled; not the disposition i would expect out of a department working at capacity to shove the bulk of the org out to work remotely. so it looks like management is sitting on their hands and hoping this all blows over and they can just ship all those laptops back. not feeling great about the current state of affairs! really, really hope i'm wrong here.

My work hasn't said shit about closing so I don't expect that to happen at all. If it does though I'm sure I'll be having a big bag of dicks when it comes to getting paid.

myanmar still doesn't have any confirmed cases

but australia is in full state of emergency with 14-day quarantine periods. so i had to cancel my trip back next week. pain in the ass. missing two weddings. also on the return trip i may not have been even allowed back into myanmar, as here they have instituted quarantine periods for selected countries' travellers - at the moment australia is OK, but that could change any time. and the US has been blacklisted (and china etc.)

we're on partial lockdown after tomorrow. public gatherings with anything over 25 people are banned which includes gyms/fitness centers, and restaurants/bars are shuttered save for delivery/takeout. NYC about to institute the same as well. shit's getting real. about to hit up the liquor store tomorrow after work to make sure i'm stocked for the next month or so :redneck:

just heard from a fellating lover in vegas that a bunch of casinos are going dark too.

The industries that are getting hit bad are airlines, hotels, tourism, sports, theaters, restaurants, cafes, maybe apparel because people aren't going to malls for a few days. So you can probably argue that these services based things are going to be less available. But goods like toilet paper that will always continue to be produced and available... yea people are dumb as shit

i wouldn't be surprised if stores start limiting the amount of people that can go in at any given time, if anything i won't have to go and stand out in the cold for hours to buy some food :homework:
