Well, if you're stupid enough to be eating out at a bar during a pandemic, it's highly likely you're dumb enough to get killed in some stupid way too.

Pretty sure the folks who won World war II didn't see a difference between them, the millennials, or anybody else.

I'm 37 and go to sleep at 9 every night, I dunno what the hell they're talking about. Pitchers of beer and chicken wings sound pretty ok right now, still not worth getting the 'rona.

Come for the beaches, bods and the 'rona...
Bring it back home to your grandma!

I'm all about artificial solitary beaches now.  Dumped a few hundred pounds of sand on a particularly nice sunny spot in the backyard before all this. Yeah it's kind of trashy and there's no water but it's a great place to read or smoke some frog skins.

Im glad there are a lot of these accesses where I live.  This pic was taken a week ago.  My county will shut down all beaches for the weekend because of the projected influx  from the counties south of us who already closed their beaches.

"I wouldn't say I felt safer, but I had started venturing out again a little bit," Rodriguez told The Daily Beast. "I still wear a face mask whenever I go out and I have always been a germaphobe, so I'm regularly washing my hands with soap."

Unless you had your entire meal pureed and served with a straw, you weren't wearing a mask in the restaurant.

Mustached by suds,
Vodak propelled,

Loose that 'smoky gaze'
All, but, rendered a "hoax"

Pinellas County beaches will remain open during the 4th of July weekend. It is going to be packed. I'm staying home and grilling out back.

The biggest question raised by that article is what kind of weirdo goes to the emergency room with a 99.9 fever?
 
2020-07-01 7:20:02 PM  
In all seriousness, it's time to stop farking around.

If you get a positive test, into the FEMA internment camp you go. You get a nice (but small) trailer with electric, running water, A/C and internet to wait out your quarantine period. You can have steak every meal if you want.

Every camp will have a nice large brick wall where every internee who wants to can go to and biatch, piss, and moan about "Mah freedoms!"

Beyond that though: Leave the camp early? You get shot. Start rioting? You get shot. Cough or spit on the guards or anybody else? You get shot.

==================

Long story short: DO NOT have any sort of right to endanger the life of me or my family. Period.

I'm setting an alarm for 6:50am tomorrow so I can make a reservation at a local beach for Sunday. Despite it being the weekend of the 4th, it shouldn't be packed since they require timed reservations and limit the number of people to allow for social distancing.

Any other approach is negligent homicide.

A hospital is a wiered place to party unless you have access to the drug cabinet!

Oh, go fark yourself with a horse dildo.

In my concept, every individual gets out the moment they are no longer A CLEAR DANGER OF KILLING OTHERS.

As things stand now with our utterly failed leadership, we could be looking at (extreme worst case) 3-9 million American dead. There's your farking holocaust right the fark there.

Their first 2 albums were so, so good. Then they sort of lost me (with songs like this one). I got to see them live in some Newport bars years ago.

Place where I work won't let you in if you are above 99.6. And they check everybody at the entry points.

Of course it's done at the entry points. I'd imagine using a rectal thermometer would cause all kinds HR complaints.

Stop bringing reality into this... everyone freaking out over young people getting infected is kinda nonsense.  As long as they stay away from those at risk, we kinda want them to get it, develop immunity and then move on.  All this fear porn over young people is absurd, it's becoming very clear some people have allowed their neurosis to take over and can't think rationally anymore.  The media isn't helping either, so everyone is doubling down on fear when the data shows the opposite... higher rates of infection mean lower actual fatality rates... young people developing the equivalent of a minor cold or less (to them).  It's always possible, with any disease to cherry pick cases of any age.  It's obvious they are trying to generate fear now.  We're doing this all wrong.
