You know why they can't solve any murders in West Virginia?

No dental records and all the DNA's the same.

That just means they're even less effective at testing than the rest of the states, not that there are no cases.

We hung in there! (Idaho) But we eventually were surrounded.
Still nothing as of today  up in the panhandle.  Spokane has it...
All we have are nut jobs loading up on ammo and taking all the bread, eggs , bananas and pasta.
(strange combo, it's like a "Chopped" basket)
I see a few pockets of human decency so that helps get through the day.

Stay safe farkers.

Greenbrier Hotel is in WV (it famously was the dark site if Congress ever had to go to ground in a nuclear event.). Lots of DC big wigs still go up there for golf.  It'll be ground zero for sure.
 
2020-03-17 12:37:44 PM  
Ok, haha, insert WV joke here - but the article suggests that they aren't just ignoring it. Gov declared a state for emergency, and they've done some testing. Yeah it's 84 tests with no positives, but those were likely the most at risk cases.

I buy that nobody want's to go to WV and because of that, they have lower vectors than a lot of places, and the low population density helps. They're probably not actually at zero, but we all have a problem with getting tests and it's not like they're doing nothing.

All deaths in WV are ruled opioid OD by default. No need to test the dead

It might be 84 tests fo far with no positives, but I know of several people I work with who live in WVA who know numerous people who are exhibiting symptoms for COVID-19 and are being told they can't be tested and to stay home.

Probably not when the environment can be a protective factor. Put three small mountains between you and your neighbor, and that's West Virginia. Something about extreme Isolation or extreme segregation. There's a proper term for it, I just don't know it.  Little exposure to outside their own hollar.

School's are having online classes, spring break is next week for most of them, I think.
Local restaurants are doing curbside service and delivery only. A few restaurants have closed indefinitely.
I work at an engineering company with not too many people in the office anyway. We have a couple of environmental field people who've been in and out of the woods last week and this week, not populous areas. One of our engineers is working from home as of last Wednesday, as she has a wacky immune system.

My husband is driving to SC this weekend to see his 72-year-old father who is in the hospital. Someone he (hubs) works with said, "You'll get stuck in SC because they're closing the state borders this weekend."

Thanks, Cleetus, but how the hell would that work and do you have an actual answer and not a Facebook answer/

I'm already working on a spec script where meth acts as a vaccine, and we find out the Bible was mistranslated and should have said "the meth shall inherit the earth", so everyone back off.

To quote the Yankee poet, good fences make good neighbours. But West Virginia has precious littel need of fences. It has precipices to rival the beautiful vertical land of Wales.

Beautiful nature and 2 of the best rafting rivers in the world, but for the last 3 months most of that wouldn't apply unless you're a snow sports person.

The skiing is not so great on most of the mountains of W.V., but the falling off of cliffs would do justice to the most adventuresome of Calvin and Hobbeses.

Actually it is the practice of burying their face into the back of the sheep they are shagging that probably protected their lungs.  You take care of the ewe and the ewe will take care of you.

/mother was from West Virginia so sheep shaggers are most likely in my family tree
//using the entertainment website Ancestry.com, I traced my family line all the way back to Charles the Bald so in essence my family went from ruling the Holy Roman Empire to literal animal husbandry (they don't believe in premarital shagging after all)

I've seen plenty of mares that were trained to back up to a stump but I've never seen a sheep west of Charleston.
