Ya know, I wish you wouldn't gloat over the misfortune of others. I don't think anyone's death is funny, not a fat person, old person, or anyone else. Please be a little respectful of the rest of humanity.Experience tells us now that 80% of the people on the IC and suffocating from the desaes is obese.
Guys, you're up for a treat in the states.
Yes it is. You would not believe me if I told you what it is. I'll just say it will not be good.Our Archdioceses here canceled all Easter services to protect the majority of church attendees (the elderly) so telecommuting with the pope it will be!
The federal checks are supposed to be tax free and not go against your income. I am going to see if I can get an exemption from a few creditors for a month or two since we are down one income with the wife and kids at home.
I do think this whole shutdown thing is a preparedness and compliance litmus test from the government gauging the public's willingness and functionality from staying at home as well as the countries infrastructure and supply chain in case of emergency. Is this a test for something larger???
I don't get the feeling you guys take this seriously.Ya know, I wish you wouldn't gloat over the misfortune of others. I don't think anyone's death is funny, not a fat person, old person, or anyone else. Please be a little respectful of the rest of humanity.
There are lessons to be learned. However, something I learned as a political science major in college is that actual social change comes slowly. A lot can change on the surface very quickly, but changing underlying values takes decades, even centuries. Hygiene and nutrition seem to be big factors in resistance to corona, but for years we have been eating "junk" food, knowing it was "junk" food, and calling it "junk" food, and eating it anyway. As a result obesity, heart conditions, and high-blood pressure -- all risk factors in the corona pandemic. There's nothing wrong with McDonalds, Fritos or Coca-cola . . . except in the quantities we consume them.Lessons will be learned, actions will be changed but I fear in time that all the progress made in changing opinions on hygiene will fade away. I'm disappointed in our government not having a better handle on this virus. We pay lots of people good money to prepare for such epidemics, however our response has been slow, showing lack of coordination between states and the federal levels. Our country needs to do much better in emergency management as there are numerous catastrophic events coming in the future.
Mammonvirus -- that's a good one! I think what makes this virus so insidious is that it is so easily transmittable and for a longer period. Also that many people never develop symptoms but can still infect others.Yess, It's going to put our hygiene and nutricion in a new daylight.
But it still is that the yearly flu demands between 250.000-500.000 death cases worldwilde.
Until now we have
We are still at the beginning for some continents.
HIV scores about 240.000 yearly and Alcohol about 350.000.
I think we are going to top that.
Smoking is 750.000
Cancer 1,17 million
Hunger 2,34 million.
But what really makes this virus unique is the effect it has on stock markets and business worldwide.
So let's rename it from Chinese or corona to mammonvirus.
