I hope not another round of power shutoffs, that would be 5 for me and I was hoping to get a generator later in the year.

White Oak Park (NJ) - 03-20-2020 by Christopher Estevez, on Flickr


Another gloomy, empty day at a park that is normally filled with folks. Have to get out of the house for exercise at least.

Biking is a good way. Keeps that social distancing. That's a collectors bike btw. Got it at a garage sale a few years back, paid $400 for restoration, and brand new. Schwinn Breeze.

So one could jog, but biking is better IMO.

It was a bit chilly out today so I decided to walk up and down the stairs of my building (only 30 stories, so not a big deal) instead.

I'm so fed up with thus coronavirus shit. How is it Lance Armstrong can land on the moon with the help of steroids but no one can't find a cure for a stupid virus.

People like you are not only killing other people, but also forcing states to crack down further. That's why they're doing it.

And worse, you're encouraging others to also help kill people. If you break the rules, I hope you get arrested.

Not because of 'murica but because I am not going to be told that I cannot travel to my parents house, or that I cannot go to see other people I care about because of some edict from some politician

Nice bike. I have several old Scwhinns also for those lazy bike rides. My favorite is my '74 Suburban.

They will have a few drugs for it in a few weeks, at least in the testing stage. A vaccine will take a bit longer. Social distancing will slow it down & give us time. Should have started that a few weeks ago, and more masks!!!! Totally out of stock. Somebody is hoarding them. And toilet paper!! Must be people with TP filling up the garage, forcing the rest of us to use newspaper.

Environmentally speaking it has been just what the planet ordered. "Life finds a way" so to speak. Factories closed. Driving down a huge % planet-wide. Air Traffic cut. Carbon emissions drastically cut. Basically the Green New Deal went into effect, just not the way anyone envisioned.

Do you drive as fast as you want, ignoring the posted speed limits? Do rules against speeding go against your limitation of movement?

The sad thing is that folks that are careless are not helping the situation. Folks are literally raising the chance of killing others or causing great harm by being irresponsible with their actions.

And their are folks that will take advantage of this situation by committing crime as well. Honestly, they should just execute those folks on the spot. If somebody is committing some sort of aggravated crime and taking advantage of this situation by robbing stores that are closed, and legit taking advantage of sick people for the sake of committing some crime, no need for those people.

These gang bangers and all this bs, while people trying to stay at home and beat this crisis.

They need to bring the national guard to some of these cities where gang banging activity occurs (crime wise, not the other thing). Take control of certain places, and curtail this crime. With a 0 tolerance policy for gang-related activity like shootings. Lethal force if necessary. That will stop crime real quick.

Over in Philadelphia: https://www.inquirer.com/news/murder...-20200320.html


This is unacceptable. The police force is already stretched thin.

Over in Chicago: https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2...e-gun-violence

Again, unacceptable. I know the SJW warriors will cry, but in this time of crisis and pandemic, we really don't need more shootings.

chris08876 Mar 21, 2020 1:57 PM

We need to support our men in blue. Our emergency responders. They need to focus on aiding people that are sick, and not stretched thin due to bs crime over a dime bag.

Support your cops folks!

They might use the Javits Center as a hospital, in NYC. They might. Cuomo to visit.

If you have any free time these days...


You can always take in movies you've never seen or check them out again, among them disaster pictures, etc...



One of my favorites, I got to see it with my dad when it came out in 1971 was "The Andromeda Strain". I did't see the 2008 version which I hear wasn't very good.

The script was based on a Michael Crichton novel, and is about a micro-organism from outer space that contaminates a small community in the Arizona desert.

^^^^^

I've had this game for a while, but if you have steam, buy this game: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2...e_Inc_Evolved/

Its a pandemic simulator. Goal is to infect all folks on Earth, and ensure they don't survive. You win when everyone dies. You can evolve your pathogen, and essentially be a genetic engineer as u deal with how the world responds.

Its a good game though, highly realistic simulation/strategy game. Even the CDC liked it.

Plague Inc: Evolved.

Quote:

Plague Inc: Evolved is a unique mix of high strategy and terrifyingly realistic simulation. Your pathogen has just infected 'Patient Zero' - now you must bring about the end of human history by evolving a deadly, global Plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself.

Those two things are not comparable.

The us government has not right to keep me in my home and they wont. Once again I don’t care how you feel about that.
