If you're an American and you're visiting family for Thanksgiving, you're a selfish piece of shiat. Stay home, video conference and see everyone next year.

My anger at American covidiots knows no bounds.

I've thought the same thing. Right now the virus is spreading like wildfire and we're basically shrugging our shoulders and acting like everything is normal.

It might be more useful to link to their summary charts instead of the raw data.

The Song of Kali is with us. It has been with us for a very long time. Its chorus grows and grows and grows.

They say if you see one cockroach, you already have thousands.  If you start seeing hundreds of cockroaches a day, you're farked.

Needless to say, we have a solid infestation, but we're not allowed to call exterminators in this scenario. :(

I was exposed at work last week and my boss told me just to inform them if I get any symptoms and not to get a test unless I really want to.

NO! We did NOT shut down everything. That is why it is so strong right now.

If you do get symptoms you should walk into your bosses office and tell him face to face.

I've been having this fight with my wife for the last 2 weeks.  Her dad died in July (heart failure), and she doesn't want her mom to spend this Thanksgiving completely alone. Both she, and we, have been quarantining hard for the last month and a half as everything ramped up, so in theory going up and spending Thanksgiving with her shouldn't prove a real risk since we'd be the only people up there with her.  But dammit there's a principle here as well: it doesn't matter that both groups of people who will be there have all been tightly quarantined. Staying home is the right thing to do, IMO.

Nobody ever accused Americans of intelligence, right? Don't get me wrong, as a Canadian, I am not sure we aren't just the same. But 4.5% of the world population with ~20% of the cases/deaths just does not have a defence.

Did we stop thanksgiving and christmas and new years eve during WW2?? No!

Why would a virus stop that?

The general manager at my restaurant went to work for 2 days with symptoms. Got a test. Positive. Was out for 7 days and came back.

My executive chef started feeling symptoms Thursday night, got a test Friday, didn't go to work, because he's not an idiot. Myself and the sous chef are staying away from work until we hear chefs results, as we were both in close contact with him all week.

I REALLY wanna blow the lid on this level of incompetence to the news or something, but I also want to have a job when the health department tells the owners to get farked, if they found out.

They should be farking jailed for what they've done.

Given the incubation period and the idiocy of the right wing combined with the belief that the vaccine will save them (even though it won't help you if you already have it and it isn't coming out this year) you're going to see a ton of families infecting each other on Thanksgiving. I would honestly be surprised if we we don't see 500k new cases in a single day and 5,000 deaths in a day by January 1st.

That and we have covidiots who kept claiming it was a media and democratic hoax to make them look bad; that there was no reason or need to wear a mask; or who kept claiming this is no worse then the flu, etc.

Or worse the covidiots who say it was a massive over reaction and "it isn't as bad as we thought it was and that most of us are going to be ok." because the death toll didn't get to 1 Million that they feel they were promised, so go and mingle and why should we inconvenience ourselves.

My job on FARK is to be the dumbest S.O.B. in every thread. You  know so people feel better about their own branes. But I guarantee you what, some of these motherfarkers make what SHOULD be an easy and simple job become too damned hard sometimes. Like math. Sometimes I dont even get my job done and somebody outstupids me like I'm a noob. Look you bastards my family gotta eat and you might lose me my gig if you keep this shiat up.

I thought this was the new normal?

Seriously though: the fatigue is really and I think after eight months lots of people just don't care anymore. They're emotionally exhausted by the stress, uncertainty, politics, protests, restrictions, everything. I'm not saying it's right, just that I understand.

I'm glad I'm 2500 miles away from family. They are having a big Thanksgiving gathering and it sounds like the normal large Christmas gathering too.

Id have no issue saying "not coming" but the distance makes it easier.

This. My wife was watching the jersey shore earlier (which apparently is still on) and the episode was all about how they were skyping each other and all staying home because of the pandemic.

These are some of the most self centered, egotistical morons on the planet, and they figured it out.

There's also the possibility than having your recently widowed mother-in-law spent the holidays alone may cause her to die sooner of heartbreak.

I have an okay relationship with my covidiot neighbors.  They were being their typical selves last night with friends over, having a cookout.  I was having a bit of a debate with another covididiot neighbor about data etc.  He was pulling out a lot of the, "its just the flu" nonsense when another drunk friend of theirs butts in atlking about how the CDC is lying, data is just dependand inn the interpreter, etc.  I ended the conversation by saying, "you are literally the stupidest person Ive talked to in a year and I teach high school."  I'm just done with these farmers.
