Dude, I hope you've got some sleep already. Italians were fighting in Africa before Hitler and let's not forget this:Doesn't really surprise me, the Italians didn't even fire their guns before they dropped them when Hitler came around.....*rimshot*
Actually, I was trying to find an AitF "Rabinowicz Rabinowicz and Rabinowicz" clip - "seven savage Jews" or "the Three Wise Men" - but I guess that's now too un-PC for YouTube.OK, you're definitely autistic. I mean that in the best possible way, I'm a bit of a 'tard myself.
Comma onna mana, youa can'ta takea aa jokea?
Truckers are saying “f*** the log rules, I’m hauling” and they’re getting supplies to the stores. People are stocking the shelves all night and letting old people shop first. Folks are buying meals for truckers, who (obviously) can’t go through the drive-ups. Asking ’em what they want, then buying it for them.
Carnival Cruise Line has told Trump “We can match those big Navy Hospital ships with some fully staffed cruise ships”.
GM and Ford have said “hold our cars and watch this — we can make ventilators where we were just making car parts, starting next week” — by re-engineering seat ventilators which their engineers hacked together for a new purpose. In under a week.
In a project with which I’m loosely associated, a very-effective agricultural disease-control agent was re-purposed and re-labeled specifically for Corona-virus control by the FDA and EPA in under ten days, from initial request to distribution.
Restaurants and schools have said, “we’ve got kitchens and staff; we can feed the poor kids who used have school lunch.”
NBA basketball players have said, “Hold our basketballs while we write checks to pay the arena staff.”
Construction companies are saying, “Here are some high-end masks for medical staff and doctors”.
Distilleries are making sanitizer out of distilling “heads and tails” which are normally discarded. Nasty shit to drink, but effective sanitizer.
People are tipping grocery check-out clerks and thanking them for taking the risk.
Local, state, and county governments are taking control of everything the feds cannot do. Some are doing it wrong, but for the first time in decades … they’re doing it. Federalism is re-emerging, and the smallest unit of government is the individual and the family. This, too, is re-emerging after decades of dormancy.
As Japanese Admiral Isokuru Yamamoto said, after Pearl Harbor … “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
I sense this has just happened. We have a wonderful country, the greatest single force for good in all human history. We have closed our borders, with good reason, yet we have top medical people now assisting North Korea in their response to the virus.
Many things have been re-set, and will never be the same.
By microbiological accident, we are living in profoundly transformative historical times.
No, but my wife talks to her coworkers in China all the time. They're back in the office and returning to normal - although they say there's news reports of a resurgence in the virus.Ar you Chinese? Several NESrs are. If you are, and can report, great. If you are NOT, I'd like to hear from THEM.
A friend of mine, former Marine officer, posted this on another forum.No, but my wife talks to her coworkers in China all the time. They're back in the office and returning to normal - although they say there's news reports of a resurgence in the virus.
Another one in that thread posted this.People I know who work in China say bullshit.
And China is locked down hard.
One member of a household is allowed to leave the house every three days go out for food and meds.
And yes, the “workers” are going back to the factories.
We have offices in China...Company wide Townhall yesterday and the China contingent said they are still working from home
A lot of stories have a kernel of truth, it can totally believe people's phones would get confiscated when they go in for quarantine. The idea that millions of people got incinerated and nobody but a few websites know about it is absurd.Storie(s)*
It’s been reported by multiple outlets. What’s the motive to falsely report it? Keep in mind some of these outlets are very friendly towards the Chinese regime.
Ok. Maybe you’re right.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.
China buries crashed bullet trains like a major accident never happened.A lot of stories have a kernel of truth, it can totally believe people's phones would get confiscated when they go in for quarantine. The idea that millions of people got incinerated and nobody but a few websites know about it is absurd.
I’m really not sure how absurd that is. China has the technology and the police state to really shut information down.A lot of stories have a kernel of truth, it can totally believe people's phones would get confiscated when they go in for quarantine. The idea that millions of people got incinerated and nobody but a few websites know about it is absurd.
I think there's a few possibilites.Ok. Maybe you’re right.
Can you explain to me how 1.4 billion people, essentially more than 4 times, almost 5 times as many people as we have, have so few deaths? Because it sure looks like we’re gonna surpass China’s deaths in less than 2 weeks.
Something doesn’t smell right.
The posted article speculates that all the migrants that left town during New Year's never went back.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?
Ok let’s go down this line of thinking.A lot of stories have a kernel of truth, it can totally believe people's phones would get confiscated when they go in for quarantine. The idea that millions of people got incinerated and nobody but a few websites know about it is absurd.
