California just shut gun stores saying they are "non-essential". But pot dispensaries, Flower shops, Smog stations, and coffee shops are open. Those are essential, I guess.

I just wish folks would wake up and realize govt. isn't the answer for anything.
Private companies ALWAYS do it better.
Too much nonsense/waste/broken systems to deal with "regular" issues let alone something like this.

Everyone be safe, careful, and take care of yourselves.
Ask your neighbors if they need anything and be nice when out and about.
Folks that are still working in stores are stressed and will appreciate it.

Who needs TP when there a huge pile of shop rags in the corner. Only a little bit of wheel bearing grease on them. It's high temp disc brake grease, so it's not like it's that blue sticky marine crap.

Interesting Coronavirus Link from Driftwood:
https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashb...75ae62e5c06e61

I don't pay any attention to the "confirmed cases" because I think those numbers are useless. Those are slaved to the amount of testing done in an area. What I mean is if I have a population of 100 people and 15 of them are sick, but I only test 5 people, chances are, I will only have 0-1 confirmed cases. But if I test 50 people in my population, chances are I will have 2-3 confirmed cases which "seems" twice as bad. I really only pay attention to the deaths and assume we are all going to get sick from it in the next 3 months (if we didn't already have it).

I think Trump made a good point during his interview on Fox the other day. He said comparing Coronavirus to Spanish Flu in 1918 is not a fair comparison. Coronavirus mortality rate, at this point, is less than >.5% while Spanish flu in 1918 was in the double digits. Meaning, if you get sick with COVID19, chances are you going to live (in fact, you will almost certainly not die...but you might...). However in 1918, if you got the Spanish flu, you might as well cancel Christmas because you have a good chance of dying.

For a little perspective they should put up the stats for this season's flu cases whenever they show the -19 numbers.

It aint like the flu doesn't kill a lot of weak and elderly every year.

they should test everybody with symptoms and then see what the corona mortality rate is.



of course,they won't cuz it won't be near as scary then,so as to allow a national shutdown (social/government experiment) and massive spending.


massive,massive hype going on here. and thats not to say its a serious situation. it just aint what the mainstream media sez it is.


neither i,nor anyone i know,knows anyone with this virus.

We got report today that a dude in my office has it. It's a non issue for most of us because we have been on mandatory telework for almost 2 weeks anyway. I guess his last time in the building was 13 March so we are almost all good, anyway. He is doing well but tested positive soooo...

My neighbor is a nurse at a skin care center but has been pulled into a county hospital to help out. We are not LA proper, more like the rural outskirts of LA so we are not nearly as populated but we have a very high population of undocumented folks that work in the fields around us. She said she has seen some pretty gnarly cases; not just old/fat/unhealthy people, either. She said it's odd because some people just get super sick from it and others do not.

7 confirmed cases in my city here....but I would bet $$ several more undiagnosed/untested.

It is everywhere! They are only finding it here by testing folks that require treatment and/or hospitalization or were exposed and tested due to exposure.

It's been spreading around the world for many months...no thanks to China trying to keep a lid on it.

it's my pleasure. no really.


we can't go to the restaurant. i can't get coffee at a truckstop unless they have an employee serving it. just too gol darn dangerous for me to touch that black lever on the coffee tank.....after touching the door handles to get in the building,and the card scanner to pay for it. you know those get cleaned a lot.


news sez it's just to dangerous.



but the news also said its perfectly safe to go give some free blood to the american red cross!!




news also sez don't go get tested unless you have bad syptoms. too dangerous to go to the hospital even! and we ain't got enough tests!


but everyday we little people are HORRIFIED to hear another of our precious,dear and beloved elite got tested and was positive,even tho they had NO symptoms! just didn't feel good...cough cough.... so why did THEY get a test but we little people get told to stay home?




gimme a break....

TP... there is an alternate solution

it may gross some, but in this time of shortage.... as I have said on other forums, when your hands are dirty... paper or water and soap...



Skip the soap for the tush... and use either that shower head attached to an extension... use a bidet like it was common in a lot of countries... bidet is not only for pxssy, it washes the crap away... you can make your own personal wash system with adapter to faucet and 1/4" irrigation hose...



Oh... yes, use the left hand, the right hand is reserved for greeting shakes


Yes, my name is Michel and I approve this message

Oh my goodness! My flight from LAX to Honolulu today, 787-9 (Dreamliner), American Airlines flight 9250. 9 seats across, about 40 rows deep (200+ seats!!), Brand new airplane. There were about 9 passengers on board including me!!! No joke, I think there were more crew than passengers.

Also, as we landed at Hono, there were Hawaiian Air aircraft lined up and down the runway. Had to be a good 50 of them just sitting there, idle. NUTS!!!
