Cole Lipscher, who came with family from West Palm, said that "honestly some guy was coming up to our camp and getting really close to us and I was like 'dude...back up.' He was like 'what dude you're into that whole social distancing thing?' And I was like 'yeah, this is our camp you need to chill out dude.'"

If that dialogue happened on The Simpsons, we'd call it satire.

I guess some people have resolved to the fact that they might die no matter what happens and they might as well go out having fun instead of holed up in their houses.. alone.

The Mormins cancelled all their meetings, but they still have guys going to every members home every week to give sacrament.  They buy cheap wonder bread and have teenage boys tear it into pieces with their bare hands.

My sister assures me it is safe because those guys all have the true priesthood of god, unlike all you heathen Christian pretenders, so she and her family are safe.

Meanwhile in a far less hard hit part of the world...

I had to cut some tubing today to move a piece of equipment and what would you know I have all the fittings in the world except the proper union for that tubing. I had run out to get the union for when the job is finished and town was completely empty. half the traffic lights have been converted over to 4 way flashing reds and there is maybe 10% of the traffic on the roads.

When I got to the industrial supply store there was a sign saying to call to be let in. They have had so few customers that he was just out back watching TV and having coffee and posted a sign so customers could call to be let in.

Nature seems to weed out the stupid.

I went to the grocery store Saturday morning around 830. While in line I heard multiple senior citizens in line behind me saying how this was their 4th or 5th shopping trip of the week and they just want to be out around people and buying stuff just in case it gets worse. They also were not 6 feet away from me and buying WAY more than the allowed amount of products so everyone can have a chance at getting groceries. They then go full Karen when the cashier says they can't get everything in their cart. If anything, its taught me to just order Target to go and not deal with assholes

I can't believe the state hasn't either shut them down yet or taken them over, in general. I don't actually want that to happen, but they have pushed the limits of what privately owned landowners can do with a natural resource; Florida shut down and took over Silver Glenn Springs in the ONF for less than that, but the egregious digging up of Native American remains was a line too far.

So... on one hand you ridicule people for adhering to quarantine standards instead of YOLOing it up at the risk of dying. And on the other hand, you chastise people for living in areas that you think are inherently more dangerous.

So which is it? Should people be safe or should they live dangerously?

Or, are you just talking out of your ass?

Maybe ridicule was the wrong word, but here, your post suggests that you don't think people should hole up alone. Or at least, you don't blame people for going out and putting others at risk:

Nope. Try again. It's a map following anonymized call phones that started in Florida and traveled elsewhere. Now, to be fair, those may have been people who traveled TO Florida then went back. You know, because Florida didn't close its beaches or anything

desantis has 3 kids under the age of 10. one of them was literally just born.

https://www.wctv.tv/content/news/Flor​i​das-first-family--569217581.html

i just keep thinking that, if his whole family survives this, those kids will grow up constantly being teased that their daddy is a mass murderer.

he wouldn't be governor without trump (i'm not even sure he actually won, it was a very, very close race and i wouldn't put vote manipulation past florida republicans), and he farking knows it.

he's probably the biggest yellow-bellied trumpsucker of all the american govenors.

so this will probably be the very last state to get an official shelter in place order.
