Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

Well, here's something I hadn't considered: https://www.star-telegram.com/news/coronavirus/article241602066.html Hungry rats swarm New Orleans streets as coronavirus closes restaurants, bars "With French Quarter bars and restaurants shuttered by a coronavirus lockdown, rats emboldened by hunger are...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

Germany's numbers, taken from a coronavirus "dashboard": 53,037 (confirmed) - 351(deaths) - 11,311(recovered) - 939 (serious) South Korea's numbers: 9,478 (cases) - 144(deaths) - 4,811(recovered) - 0(serious) So, why do those two countries have numbers that look like that? Someone really, really ne...

Re: Z-Lib

It doesn't make sense to me that this service can exist for free (or nominal cost) without violating copyrights.... I'd recommend staying away. Seems unfair (not to mention illegal) to the copyright holder and those who spent time and money to publish original works. YMMV. https://www.quora.com/Is-i...

Re: Z-Lib

https://z-lib.org My dad put me onto this yesterday - no fees, a free account can download 10 books per day (clock seems to reset around 5 pm). They have every novel I could think of plus many, many gun/prepper/survivalist books. Most of them have multiple formats available (PDFs, mobi (Kindle), et...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

I'll stop now. This is bad for my blood pressure. Yeah, you want to be careful about that. There is a good chance the active ingredients in your BP medicine come from China. Word has it they may cut us off. I've been stockpiling for a while... I have a 5 months supply. But I agree that we've been d...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

Yep, like I said many times in this thread. Extreme Over Reaction. I'm finding it difficult to express in polite words how incorrect you are. If we don't take necessary measures to stop the transmission of this virus it will be catastrophic. 1. We still can't get tested, so, nobody knows whether th...

Re: Nobody but Bernie Sanders

Bernie has been aching for a fight at the Democratic convention. He probably won't win, but it looks to be an entertaining battle. I don't know if you watched his press conference but I did and he hit on every major issue of the far left platform. Funny thing is, we know Bernie's platform but Joe B...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

IF the numbers and severity reports we're hearing now were true, I would agree with you. However, I have serious doubts about both of those. China would not have shut down their industrial production and devastated their economy for somewhere around 3K deaths - that's a number they'd hardly notice....

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

More tips.... -- Get a smartwatch and keep your phone in your pocket/purse. This way you don't have to put your possibly hazardous hands into your pocket to answer the phone, or put your hands and phone near your face. I wear my watch into the shower and wash it. Have to pay attention to drying the ...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

Texas State University has now concluded that this is going to be bad. They have cancelled ALL study abroad programs for this summer and will examine them again for the fall. No word yet on what they will do for students, like my son, who have a major where studying abroad is a degree requirement. ...
