I'm going to be honest about an unpopular opinion.

The ONLY way we are going to do the right thing is if there is a huge spike in deaths after Tump and the Trumpt*rds try reopening too soon. You know this much.

The silver lining is that if he did the right thing there might be time to change the talking points before the election. His grotesque stupidity and evil will keep corona deaths ni the news until election. That may be the lesser of these two evils. Trump has got to go.

That's true. There were a million reasons why Trump is an unelectable POS before the virus. If he would have handled this correctly or even incorrectly and sounded Presidential about it, all his previous farkups would have been forgotten. And they still might be if he announces a cure at the zero hour and enough people fall for it.

You're assuming that they would actually learn from it.  I'm thinking there'll be a quick meeting to decide who to blame other than themselves.  His base doesn't care that he's stupid or foolhardy; that just makes him "relatable".

I've been watching beach TV as part of my social distances routine.  My Roku has even moved it up in my queue, to make it easier for me.

I turned it on just to get an idea of how many damned fools there are in PCB.  I grossly underestimated.  I am Georgia born, Georgia bred, and someday, Georgia dead.  But, I'd like to see a bunch of these morons go first and soon.

My give a damn is busted.

Maybe it's like the parasite that lives in cat feces that makes you want to have cats.  This virus seems to make people dying to congregate so it can spread in clusters.  In a sense, these people are cat feces.

Harlee: {looks sadly at my collection of 10 used/cycled N-95 masks}


My parents were selling their house a few weeks prior to the pandemic starting in the u.s. so they were getting rid of a ton of stuff (going from a three story house with two garages and a work shop to a condo) and my father gave away (he estimates) 300 N95s, dust masks, paint masks, and things like that from his lifetime as a remodeling contractor and all-around craft maker/fixer. Many never used.

He about shat himself after it was obvious masks were gonna be considerable element of this.

Supposedly outdoor transmission of the coronavirus is quite unlikely, so as long as people stay away from each other, going to the beach should be fine. The woman in TFA claims that people were doing that.  However, pictures from various beaches tell us that people are practically licking each other in their glee at the country 'reopening'.

If you insist on licking somebody, at least sanitize them first.

Wait until it hits 90 in NYC, the bennys invade New Jersey, and every hydrant in the city from Woodlawn to Canarsie is popped with the city beaches being the only ones closed thanks to DeBlasio overcorrecting for his previous incompetence.

I spent 5 years living in L.A. , after about a year I never went to the beach for the sake of going to the beach. Also didnt didn but the idea of laying on the sand never really had an allure

Beaches are pretty safe since a sea breeze disperses the virus. A crowded beach isn't -- obviously -- but telescopic lenses can make good social distancing look worse than it is.

The most recent discussion that I've read on the danger of the virus considered viral load -- the amount of virus one encounters in a given length of time -- to be a significant factor in coming down with the disease. Hence 2 hour choir practice with someone shedding virus: very bad. 2 seconds to pass a pedestrian shedding the virus: not so bad. So, to extrapolate: keep a reasonable distance and don't linger.  And wash your hands a lot.

I speak as a someone in the "5-1 chance of death or serious impairment" cohort. And a mind-numbing germophobe.
