To be honest, bender style drinking is probably why I felt like I did yesterday.

This is going to take such a heavy toll on people

You have to wonder if there isnít a middle ground - once we flatten the damn curve- between killing Grandpa and shutting down the economy almost entirely

I hope there are a lot of people studying alternative ways of organizing society because 30-50% unemployment doesnít seem tenable for months..and government canít just print money forever...

As far as concerts...I could see big concerts being out for a real real long time

Obviously if warmer temperatures would stop this virus that would be huge as it would buy the northern hemisphere a few months to get a response together to this unprecedented crisis...developing a vaccine and treatments while increasing our medical preparedness is paramount

If this where to go on like this for many months a lot more jobs would be at stake and we would all be fucked

I think the current response is necessary because we are caught flat footed and shocked but this cannot be the entirety of it

I just want to apologize for any poor choice in words I may have used to get my point across the other day, but what I bolded above is basically where I was mentally at, and still am.

Yeah I can understand that, Space


Itís a stressful and frightening time for sure

I have read a few things we might do like isolating more vulnerable people while opening things up

I just hope there are a lot of better educated people looking into this cause itís way above my pay grade

That's terrible news about Adam. Big fan of both of his bands.

this sounds like good news...
BREAKING: The FDA has issued an emergency approval for a testing kit than can detect coronavirus in two minutes.
https://www.axios.com/fda-coronavirus-two-minute-testing-kit-bodysphere-a665429d-488d-4edf-bd36-9180e2a06e4c.html

We've got to test as many as possible

Edit...important note
Yes, but: These rapid tests can only detect the coronavirus in people who have had the infection for several days, meaning the test can't be used too early on when the body hasn't produced enough antibodies.

What if four of us did one of those virtual Happy Hours where we do the Zaireeka multiple boom box thing 2020-style on Zoom? Would this be awesome or would the board fold in on itself from the META?
