Since I had to sleep at some point. Here are some comments over the last couple of hours:

Basically everyone where I work is screwed, no one gets a check.

Some of my co-workers could use the check, we all have houses, some of them have kids with special needs, spouses that were laid off or had their own business but now arent bringing any money home ...

But they all make above that magical number someone thought of, so f*** them.
I said it before, just cut a check to EVERYONE. The 'rich' will reinvest it. The middle class will get what they need and maybe invest the rest. The dumbass and poor will blow it on hookers and blow.


[cheers]
That's the 'Murica I know and love.

I am pretty sure the kopsch aren't going to give someone shit for wearing a surgical mask or respirator right now.... [rofl]
I have a feeling, stuffs about to get real enough that petty crime will be the least of everyone's concerns.

That is a lot hotter than i expected—might degrade the mask! Not sure if it needs to be
130 isn't that hot. It regularly gets that hot in the desert and around Phoenix/Las Vegas.

Situations like this is where you go into work - and when your supervisor threatens you with termination because you're wearing your own personal N95 mask - you start any response with " I was talking with my Jewish lawyer this morning................... so be very careful what you say past this point Mr. Supervisor......................... "
The union ought to have a lawyer visit the administration and straight up ask if that is indeed a directive that must be followed, so he can get his paperwork together and start the MASSIVE ANUS EXPANDING lawsuit.

Not surprising to see Putin playing the geopolitical long game with the virus. I wouldn't be surprised to see Russia sacrificing lives at home in exchange for driving a wedge into the EU.



Doesn't really surprise me, the Italians didn't even fire their guns before they dropped them when Hitler came around.....*rimshot*

Everyone gets $500 per kid regardless of income.

Reuse of N95 masks (disinfection):

View attachment 341912

Note the warning about use of alcohol or chlorine as disinfectants on the masks. While they will disinfect these materials, they will also have an affect on the diffusive properties of the material which is key attribute towards capturing of the virii.
This is dumb - the big risk of re-using a mask is contamination, not loss of efficiency. But maybe it's better than no mask.

I know people are sick, but this smacks of a SuperPAC anti-Trump political ad.

Mark my words, that woman will be featured in an ad in October against Trump.
And when people question whether or not she's a real doctor and call for her to come forward, she will have tragically been killed by the virus so she can't come forward and validate it.

you know China is not like NK or the Soviet Union, you can actually go there and see that's it's not the boogeyman. You might then notice that everyone is on social media over foreign VPNs. It's not exactly locked down. They're probably reading this thread.

I’ve been racking my brain for awhile now trying to come up with a plausible explanation as to why all these cell users suddenly dropped their service.

I can’t come up with one, other than they no longer exist. What about you?

Ar you Chinese? Several NESrs are. If you are, and can report, great. If you are NOT, I'd like to hear from THEM.

Either here or there
This should have way more likes than it does. You’re not only our direct link to what’s going on, you’re actively involved with it and giving NES a shout out with the sit rep. We owe you many beers 🍻
Thank you, and be safe.
It’s not so rosy. That nurse manager in NY just died from Covid. Management has talking points for staff to not pay attention to “outside” sources. Doesn’t that smack of communism? Internal Hospital Admin Propagandists.
