You do not need to post in every discussion. You will spread yourself too thin. Wait for particularly high-profile stories and come up with something really memorable for them.

I'm 55. I take issue with the millennial mindset those over 60 don't matter.

Best trust I am going to remember this and hold it the fuk against them.

This should have been predictable.  People living in close quarters, go figure.  I would not be surprised if it was predicted and the military branches gave orders on how to avoid contamination.  The best orders would probably be taken with a grain of salt as they are basically kids who think they are invincible.

My prediction was that this would spread like wild fire in the homeless encampments on the west coast.  Maybe it did and they are unreported.  Who knows?

Please.  The last generation has already embraced the "got mine, fark you" mentality.  Don't be surprised when younger people start treating you the same way.

Do you want me to respond with my indoor voice, or the voice I have used to talk to Marines when people are shooting at them ?
Because  I can go either farking way, sunshine. And frankly, a banhammer trip to the cave of wonders would just about to be worth it to say what I should say to you, parody account I have tolerated, to a point.

It's not that young people don't get covid-19, it's that the mortality rate among is fairly wee for people under 40. Although the hardest being hit are 80+ which are silent or Bee's kneesest gen depending on age.

Those over 60 lived in the post-war economy, paid less for housing, and for education than everyone after and acted like we were the lazy entitled ones. Remember that as we pay your SS and Covid treatment. Your parents were the Bee's kneesest Generation. You are riding on their coat tails.

If you have them individually Farkied here, go for it.
Otherwise, you will be holding a grudge against a lot of people who don't deserve it, not to mention many older people who actually do deserve a grudge, who held the same viewpoint that put their financial concerns aNoodle of other people's lives.

Yes, we've seen this to be mostly right of the age curve and weirdly (and luckily) not affecting the young as much.
Yet, as Italy has seen, mortality rates shift when the hospitals are being flooded. Them artificially choosing to give priority to younger people can and will skew the reality.
When/if hospitals actually run out of enough ventilators for the young folks, that's when the numbers will shift.

By "millenial" do you mean GOP insider traders, over 60 years old?  Or the GOP governor, calling for death panels...minus the panels...for people your age?  "15 cases, soon to be zero"...that wasn't a millennial either.

Watch who's screwing you, because it's not the avocado toast crowd.  They're not in charge.
