COVID-19, some thoughts, please share yours…

Postby Dirty Old Yank » Fri May 22, 2020 12:30 am

There’s little doubt that lots of forum visitors/regulars
are experiencing the same things I’ve described.
With any luck they’ll find their voices again.
Interesting to note that...
MANY people in this dumber than a sack of rocks excuse for a burg quite deliberately
won’t social distance and refuse to wear masks. Talk about an exaggerated sense
of self-entitlement, daft berks. By definition, willful ignorance. And price gouging,
the local medical supply has been breaking packages of paper masks into fours,
puts them into ziplock bags and charges $20 for 4 masks! Once upon a time,
and this wasn’t long ago folks, price gouging was a criminal offense.
As COVID-19 spreads way, far faster than AIDS, what we’re all witnessing…
it’s like the Jonestown mass suicide on a far vaster scale, that’s how blind-stupid many
people are behaving. Apparently they’ve chosen not to comprehend what Pandemic
means. Most never heard of the 1918 flu pandemic that killed millions worldwide,
and couldn’t care less anyway. I’m decidedly not misanthropic…but as a lifelong
mountaineer I tend to notice when human behavior is bizarre; one chooses not
to climb with such people if you expect to survive. And the current climate is
more than a little creepy. But hey, much like those old Guinness adverts...
...Steptoe is good for you! Lots of iron…even if it is any old iron :o.

Whatever the crisis, there will be winners and losers, this is how we live now or supposed to live? just that in the UK we were slow to act in time and the government advisers went with the "herd" mentality to subdue the virus but it failed, as an island we have the advantage as new Zealand had and look at their results (low deaths) and already back to almost normal. lots of folks died that should be alive now. we will get over it in the end but what is yet to come?
