    In a couple weeks as the bodies pile up and as jokes stop seeming funny, we are going to look back at everyone who broke the rules and remember it. Every American is going to lose someone. Maybe your family, maybe your coworker, maybe your neighbor. We will all know someone killed by our own carelessness. Picture someone who means everything to you. Picture them being the one you lose because someone couldn’t follow a rule. No. More. Excuses. This is life and death. Act like it.

    Bullshit. act like an adult before you blame others people are dying. We told all of you what to do and you screamed “but Panera bread” and now there’s 2000 dead bodies. go tell your excuses to the dead Americans maybe they will listen.

    I don’t know if it’s 1 or 2 sigma error bars but the error bars show 5000 a day within error. i don’t know if we will get that high but I will say this, we are on a path to be on the high side.

    Since you posted this the US death toll has doubled. A thousand people died of it. In 2 days.

    A few doors down from me a family was outdoors having beer on their front porch, with their kids playing together. Based on their car, one of them works in a hospice facility. Our county’s first death today was someone who was in a hospice facility. Maybe they will be fine today, but do that a few more times and someone will die for that play date.

    Over 500 Americans died of this today, including an infant in Chicago. The US had 1000 dead on March 26, today is March 28 and now we have 2000 dead. this is not a game.

    It can survive on surfaces for hours in a full dose, and up to 72 hours total. Any person who touched it in the past 3 days could have transmitted it there. Or, you could pick it up from someone you talk to, then drop it on the table, and 2 days later someone else picks it up from you. https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/19/coronavirus-survives-on-surfaces-how-to-protect-yourself/

    Apparently one of the Sunoco stations near me can do touchless transactions so that station is getting business.

    Until right now I didn't think about how difficult the credit card step was going to be. Thank you.

    I'm going to have to later this week. I'm probably going to combine it with a Dr. visit (required) and a grocery run. I'm almost certainly wearing a mask during the run, every time I do any step where I have to touch stuff I'll do a hand sanitizer squirt, I'm going to disinfect all the groceries that go in the fridge with lysol along with the table they're sitting on, and everything non-perishable is going to spend 3 days sitting in the garage. The more people who act like this isn't a big deal, the bigger of a deal it will be.

    The Virus has been clearly established to survive on surfaces such as stainless steel or plastic, such as your park tables, for up to 3 days. Do you own the park tables themselves? Can you verify that they are isolated every hour of the day after you leave, no other person has touched them in the previous 72 hours? If not, you are putting yourself at risk by touching them every single time. Thus, you are absolutely violating social distancing rules and putting yourself and everyone around you at risk. Please stop. Please. For everyone's sake please stop.
  17. These leagues would probably be ok with empty stadiums and TV money rather than nothing at all, but they still need plans for what to do if and when their own (traveling) players get sick and I don't have a good answer to that.

    Can you think of any other times when he was legally required to do something and then interjected “but we would like you to do us a favor”? 51 Senators said that was legal enough, so why not?

    Yeah he’s totally serious, that’s why he was elected.

    I don’t even want to know which statement this refers to.

    I go out and walk the dog every day. I haven’t been within 10 feet of anyone. I don’t touch anything, including sign posts, benches, fences, or anything else that could be a contaminant. There are ways to do things in the world while still respecting the rules. You refuse. You are concerned with personal insults. By touching things other people touch you are literally trying to kill people. Threatening to murder someone like you keep doing is a far more intense personal attack.

    You remember how you couldn’t figure out how touching a plastic feature could allow you to transmit a disease? You are the germ warfare.

    Congratulations Soxtalk we have now successfully upgraded this thread into the MLB forum because this is the worst possible universe every time. And given all the options I’m going with “he is an expert on injections” and I’m done and going to go light the nearby playground kids keep using on fire.

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/27/trump-malaria-coronavirus-152498 They’ve pulled doctors and FEMA and management officials off of other tasks to manage their malaria drug fantasy. They are offering doctors monetary bonuses for trying them on patients.
