Oh your shopping is slow?

Cry me a fucking river.

I walked into save on....no line up. ..went to the beer store...  same....had to go by crappy tire, 1 hour line up to get in.

Im licking you first.

Maybe there will be a monument to your sacrifice when this is all over.  Like a massive important-looking stone podium with a tiny violin on it.

(GENEVA) — The World Health Organization’s emergencies chief said Monday that it has received no evidence from the U.S. government to back up allegations by President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the coronavirus could have originated at a laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

“From our perspective, this remains speculative,” Dr. Michael Ryan told reporters in Geneva. “We have not received any data or specific evidence from the U.S. government relating to the purported origin of the virus.”

I can see folks having troubles living in a new way. Some adapt better than others. I too have issues, 

You think you got issues?

If that were my offspring I would be so proud. In the same way I feel pride after a triple coiler with a DQ twist.

Think no matter what happens in the next few months. Countries are going to open up anyways and just live with what happens. The world economy can't survive in this state.

I noticed that yesterday Russia had a 25% increase in reported cases. We'll see what happens in the next couple of days, but they could be in for a large exponential increase.

Edit: their increase today is 17% over yesterday.

In the next day or so Russia will be in the top five countries for number of COVID cases.

This chart from the BBC sums it up for me. Gotta live with the virus, it's not going anywhere and neither is the human race. Well not until Trump pushes the big red button.

That’s based on data generated while there were serious restrictions on people’s movements, and on the health care system being able to treat everyone who needs it.

The picture may be much different once people (and the virus) can move more, particularly if the medical system can’t keep up.

This thing hasn’t punished us badly here, but it’s clear from other areas that it easily could hammer us.

A reverse image search shows that the graph is not from the BBC, but from a site called off-guardian.org.  It is a site (and I am not making this up) comprised of "writers" that were kicked off the Guardian's comments section.  I can't comment on the content of the site, but they seem to be very against any lockdown measures and it isn't the BBC.
