But in all and all I really hope those with less appreciation for the dunes have a greater appreciation for said dunes. I know if and when I see them next season a new meaning,  a greater appreciation, etc etc will over come me. Those that take out there for granted , and or disrespect the sand and others, should really just go then.. I will be doing some serious  SOUL DUNING ! May  infact be close to spiritual  feeling , and that top of it all place sunset with the family, now who knows the meaning of that next time we are there,... Right??  Who’s on that page?? 
 

OkOkOk. Some comedy. I’m not gonna die with my money if I am. I have set my daughter up and the rest I’m throwing at my car right now. Voter mental won’t get much haha..Taking the time to tear it down and bring a new found glory to her.  We will  live to dune another day..
 

 

 Take my ashes and crop dust the sand!

They are worn by people who are sick and must travel outside as a courtesy to others. Would you like to tell me more about Asians?

Imagine the luck of everyone in this wedding party being sick all at the same time? All jokes aside, your insinuation that because you happen to be Asian somehow makes you an authority on one of the most diverse ethnicities around the world (48 countries and countless religions) makes about as much sense as me claiming to speak for all white people. Point is, you're right, it is mostly a courtesy to others in addition to a general respect to law and order that we don't have.

As somebody who builds Office buildings for a living I am more worried they will all start working from home.

 

Oh and I figured it out all of the non-essential people are the terrible drivers

With all of these conspiracy theories going around, I was wondering if any of you heard about the crazy one where our Government is actually trying to use social distancing so that there isn't  an initial, massive spike in cases that overwhelms the hospitals? I know it sounds crazy, but they say that given a little extra time, we can manufacture more equipment that will help save lives as well as developing a possible vaccination that will prevent many from getting it in the first place.  Now bear with me cause I know it sounds nuts, but this particular conspiracy says that there actually isn't an ulterior motive behind our government officials (you know, the branch of our government that is basically divided 50% on all issues and virtually never agrees on anything, yet some would like us to believe that they all agreed to figured out a plan to kill hundreds of thousands of fellow Americans so that they could (                 insert conspiracy of the day here               )         

i tend to not buy into all the conspiracy theorists out there, but i do listen and form my own conclusions. I am under the belief that the point of the social distancing, stay at home etc is to just slow the spread to not overburden the health care systems. i believe most of us are gonna get this bug at some point, to some degree. some with get it worse than others. there is also some other things that can be taken from this whole experiment, is thats just it.. an experiment (not that the virus was relaesed on purpose or shit like that, but the reaction to it is now an experiment). see how people react, what they do, how they treat others etc. how far will people allow big brother and other to push them around and dictate their lives before they revolt? sure, sounds tinfoil hatish.. but kinda makes ya think.

also to the original question, i know of nobody personally that has it or had it confirmed by a test. i have several friends that believe they had it back in january as they were tested for influenza and came back negative but had high fevers cough etc same symptoms as they say covid has. :dunno:

I've been to most of the countries in Asia, that's the generally accepted norm.  Argue if you want.

The picture above: LOL.  Sometimes there's a village idiot.  Other times there's a village of idiots.  Happens.

Question though: if masks are ineffective, why do we need them for hospital staff? :bigrin

No, I haven't. (sarcasm.)

Have you heard the one about 6 ft being totally ineffective? It turns out when a person coughs, they expel aerosolized virus droplets for 27 ft. 

Have you heard the one about the virus entering your body only through your mouth or nose? That means that if a person wears a face mask, they could go out in public, be surrounded by infected coughing people and as long as they remove their outer clothing and sanitize their hands and stop touching their faces, they won't catch the virus.

If the gov't would allow faster testing of suspected infected people, quarantining of ONLY infected people and nursing homes, we would not have had to shut down so many businesses. Sure - concerts, bars, restaurants would still have to close, but other businesses could have remained open.

The way the gov't - and top doctors have approached this makes it look like they've either not really thought about what to do, or they're slow, or not that bright.

Take the cruise ships for example. They quarantined them out at sea for two weeks. This had to increase the number of people who were exposed to those who actually were infected. This increased the load on the hospitals with more patients who were needlessly exposed. They should have sent a team on board, isolated everyone with a fever or other symptoms, tested  everyone and kept them isolated until the test results came back in 2 or 3 days, then released everyone who was not infected and treated the infected ones onboard.  Instead of 2 or 3 or 5 infected, after 2 weeks of being stuck on a ship, who knows how many more people were infected out of the hundreds of passengers.

They're looking at this like either force everyone to stay at home and do huge damage to the economy, or let most businesses go on as usual and lose a lot of the population. But there are other alternatives, possibly as effective if not more so. Why are they just now thinking of them, 4 months later?

Considering (IMHO) that all politicians are simply power hungry morons and pretty much every law written in the last 150 yrs would have been written better by a 10 yr old and it would have directly addressed the real problem without all of the gibberish and loopholes, I think the prudent thing for people to do is prepare and protect themselves by doing their own research and not waiting for the gov't to take partially ineffective measures too late.

I hope everyone protects themselves from the virus and we can all get back to our lives soon.

Are we now going to do this shit every time a some weird disease comes out of China or Africa?  Because there's a new, unknown killer bug coming out  every 4-5 years.

More than 12,000 Americans died from H1N1 in 2009-10 and I barely recall a handful of news stories about "swine flu".

Honestly, considering the low mortality rate, I think the gov't response is driven more by appearances in a pre-election period than a real concern for those who might die. If Trump does nothing, the Dems can point at him and claim he was an ineffective president. If he does something and things go well, he can claim he saved the country. If he does something but it doesn't seem to be enough, then the Dems will claim he didn't do enough.

So he decided to do a stimulus package and the Dems fell all over themselves to add tons of pork to it. The stimulus package will pay $1,200 per adult and $500 per child. According to the census, there are 329 million in the US, only 209 million adults in the US. $1200 x 209,000,000 = $250.8 Billion. There are 120M kids, $500 x 120,000,000 = $60 B.

So $310 Billion out of $2 T is going directly to the public. The rest of it, $1.69 Trillion, is going to big industries, like airlines, etc. and then all of the liberal pet projects. So $310 B (only 15.5%) is direct aid to the public, and the other 84.5% is going elsewhere, eventually into the pockets of people who already have millions in the bank.

To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement. This is all taxpayer money, so I expected it to be at least 50% directly to the public, if not more like 80%. I guess I should have expected it.

Thank you sir! All is well at my house.  Always on the defense though as my wife is a nurse.  I'm a retired fireman but some of my past co-worker are hospitalized due to COVID-19

Just to add

$25,000,000 going to congress, that's $39,000 each. The people get $1200, they get $39,000. that's what they think of themselves and us.

Family Friend, elderly man that was in a Senior Assisted Living Home is now in Isolation / Hospice care, spent 8 days in ICU and there is nothing left they can do for him. He will be on a ventilator until he passes away, which they feel will be this week. His family is heartbroken, nobody can even see him and he will pass away alone.

 

Just because you don't know anyone personally YET, doesn't make it any less real. Most healthy people will be just fine, that is NOT who is at risk, but they sure as hell will pass COVID-19 around like wild fire.

 

My Dad goes in for surgery this Wednesday for Cancer in one of his kidneys, partial removal of the kidney and his #1 biggest fear over the cancer is contracting COVID-19 while he is at the hospital. If all goes 100% well he will go in, come home same day then go on 14 day lock-down at home.

Hey Crusty, hope all went well with your Dads surgery today.

sounds like the malaria drug is doing an amazing job...seems to be lots of stories of people being declared victims of this even though they were dying from other causes first. This is just the icing on the cake so to speak.  I think when it's all done, we will know that the Democrats will take every opportunity to seize and grow power over the people, never let a crisis go to waste,   The Govt basically sucks at everything, and the vast majority of people in the world are idiots.

My Dad is home tonight, 4 hour Surgery took 3 hours and recovery was really good.

He is very happy, now to make sure it doesn't pop back up over time elsewhere. 

Eff Cancer!

He still thinks it's from Vietnam. Has plenty other health issues from there.

 

Thanks everyone who sent a pm, well wishes,  etc.

I appreciate it.

I don't know anyone that's come down with it, but my sister is compromised with lung problems so I'm preparing for it. I'm a healthy, non TP hoarding level headed guy blessed with common sense, so I don't live in fear. But I do have a concern that maybe the LEO or firefighter guys/gals can chime in on. What happens if the whole department comes down with this virus? Who fills in?

Just talked to my EMT buddy yesterday: they're working in completely different shifts to avoid contaminating the other teams.  If one comes down, they will quarantine the whole team.  If 2 teams come down, they'll just work with what they have that's healthy from the teams.

Anecdote time: he also said that Balboa has a whole quarantine tent setup...  With no one in it and barely more than normal in the ER. :dunno:
