Well can the virus survive a high alcohol environment?

What if we find out being hammered all the time is the only way to prevent infection?

What then?  I thought so.

Protests are still necessary. It's unfortunate that awful people use them as an excuse to behave inexcusably.

For some people without drinking and partying it's not living.

some drinkers 'refused to go home'

I know who I want to take me home.

Some chose to repent for their sins and some chose to carry lucky charms with them to ward off the disease, but others abandoned religion entirely, instead leading lives of merriment. Indulging in the pleasures of life, these people sought parties wherever they could. Because so many believed the end was nigh, they no longer cared to keep their belongings, and items like houses became common property. Partygoers could walk into any house and claim it as theirs because people no longer were concerned with property rights. Then there were some who abandoned society entirely, choosing to lock themselves away as the plague spread through the towns around them. In their isolated cabins, they distracted themselves from the death and destruction with fine wine and music - the pleasantries of life.

Not the first time this happens. It happened during the black plague too.

I think people are just getting stir crazy.  Everyone's been cooped up in their homes with little interaction with the real world for so long that they're becoming more willing to take chances just for the opportunity to do something.

That's not even taking into account all the people who've been unable to work and have burned through whatever savings they might have had.

I came to say this exact thing. Only ironically.

I figure if I can wait a few more months, I can go back out properly without worrying about death by virus.

Death by alcohol, shenanigans, snu snu still on the table. What I'm trying to say is I'm gonna go giving bananas and tip like a farking Carnegie when the time comes.

I always feel sorry for the health care workers who never get a break. They should go on strike and tell those who won't take it seriously, "good luck."

One is held indoors with poor ventilation and no social distancing.

One is held outdoors with good ventilation, masking and social distancing.

Also your intentional stupidity is un-becoming.

Sorry, losers, but some people just want to LIVE THEIR LIVES. While you were cowering in your basement, these birds were getting finger blasted by a chav named Kev.

Somebody call Alanis Morisette.

I'd do it as it is a local call, but I am too lazy to look up her phone number. I wonder if she sold that apartment yet? It was quite nice. Full of chinoiserie, with three or four stories so she could have high ceilings in the entertaining rooms.

Doctoral Candidate Zaius: "Braving" temperatures in the 40s, when a "heat wave" is 73...


That sounds like my kind of weather. Depending on the time of year, both are shorts weather.

when you get used to 0 to 25 degree degree F for a month or two, 40's feel warm enough for shorts

42 degrees F right now outside. Windows open. The breeze is nice.

/my rigged up 2nd filter (wet rag on the output) on my shopvac blew out as i was cleaning up durrock debris after cutting/fitting the last bits of my living room. Dry concrete dust went everywhere. Wife is out. I really really hope most of it clears before she comes back.

On the plus side, I bet you're going to be able to pick up a nice castle on the cheap in about a year or so.

Londoners decide drinking and partying is more important than living

Almost -- Londoners decide drinking and partying is more important than YOU living. Most morons seem to assume that THEY THEMSELVES will be perfectly fine, and don't give a rat's arse if their poor choices puts OTHERS at risk....

Which is exactly the same reason the US has such atrocious numbers, "mah freedumbs!" trump your right to life.

Drinking is more important than living. Partying is more important than living. But drinking and partying are more important than living.
