Well, since we probably will never see toilet paper again after all this, can we please get an explanation for those damn three seashells already?!?!?

An end to crowded bars where you can't hear yourself think? If that were all I had to worry about with regard to the fate of the restaurant business, I'd be weeping for joy.

They'll all give you the explosive shiats a few hours after you eat there?

This is actually the first movie I watched under quarantine.

Bullshiat. People want to be out with the crowds. The article talked about Olive Garden not being filled up anytime soon.

No shiat it won't be filled up anytime. It's because it's a terrible corporate chain. The owners will simply find something new to water down & sterilize.

Meanwhile local bars will be packed. I guarantee it. Forget Covid-19, the new strains of STD's after the first few days of post-quarantine living will be incredible.

I like the current taco Bell ads

So you can feel guilty about not tipping the driver enough because gig based jobs really suck at the moment

Heh, haven't seen that before. Now, to have Sandra Bullock demonstrate...

This is just dumb.

morg: This is just dumb.


It soared way beyond dumb with this: Roger Lipton, a restaurant industry analyst, investor, and advisor, predicts

Unless he's also a time traveler, he has no f*cking clue what the industry will be like after this. If there is an industry, or an "after this".

We are already having shortage of TP!

Oh no, a "shortage" of dining establishments.

Agree completely about local places.  I dont even drink and I'll likely go out.  Definitely going to make plans with friends.

That is, if they're still open

Available, accurate and fast testing makes 90% of all this a non-issue.

We're only in the jam we're in because we are flying blind with guidance from the CDC that we only should open our eyes if we crash into something. That's probably the best metaphor I can use for this absolutely disgusting and embarrassing situation we are in.

I hope when this is over, anyone who has uttered the words "If you don't have symptoms, you don't need a test" is prosecuted for negligent manslaughter or something like that.

Prediction: some restaurants will stick to take-only. Virtual restaurants were already becoming a thing before this. That will accelerate.

I promised my son I'd take him out to a nice dinner for every term he maintains a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA. He has a 3.0 now and I can't take him out anywhere. :( This really sucks for us because he's 19, struggled with college at first, and the way to his heart IS through his stomach. That's important mother/son bonding time for us. Now I don't know what to do for positive reinforcement that gets us quality time together that he would enjoy.

I've considered this, too. It's been a while for me and I'm thinking I really need get some when this is all over, but a big reason I gave up on dating is because so few men will use condoms. If there's a shortage of them, I'll just have to wait until they're available again. Then the hard part will be finding someone who will use them. Here in Oregon, we have just as many reckless sexers as we do antivaxxers. People seem to forget that HIV isn't the only STD out there and PreP isn't going to prevent the rest of them. Hell, when in get tested it's a TEN panel test. I don't get why so many men take that risk. There's an antibiotic resistant strain of Gonorrhea out there now, and pretty soon antibiotics are going to be scarce. It isn't worth the risk.

If the same amount of people want to eat out and there are less restaurants, won't that make them more crowded?

Honestly, just find some decent take out and buy one of the direct from theater flicks for about $20 on Amazon.

You Tube some interesting culinary dishes, utilize the data mines to find out when your local grocer is low volume, brave it, and try something new. My kids are the same; you need to be really flexible to make this work.

And yes, have faith that you can do more than boil toast.

I will talk to him about it. At his age he's not thrilled about hanging out with mom unless there's food involved, and going out is special because we don't eat out aside from special occasions. He took a 3.5-mile walk with me last Sunday, and I had to really coax him into it. He doesn't have a spontaneous personality at all, so he might go for it if I set a specific day and time in advance. I am a pretty good cook. Thank you.

You can always bank them too. This won't last forever and you will be able to dinner at some point. I am sure he will understand.
