Coronavirus
« on: March 13, 2020, 11:19:28 AM »
Has any leagues been cancelled that some of you bowl in due to the Coronavirus ? A tournament I was going to bowl in pulled the plug. I'm in Ohio where mass gatherings of 100 or more are prohibited. Things are changing daily so it could be an adjustment after the 2 p.m. press conference.

I encourage you to attend large group gatherings immediately!

 
I takes a special kind of slim to wish sickness and/or death on anyone. What's sad is that based on your past behavior, I'm not surprised. :o  There are more appropriate places besides a bowling forum to pander your specific views.

We took the lead in Coronavirus cases even with the ridiculously low testing rates in the US and Trump wants to send everyone back to work in a couple of weeks...hope you have some harsh words for him too

He never said “everyone” back to work.

The hope is to let parts of the country less affected by the virus start to go back to work if it makes sense. It’s not a definitive.

There are probably more people in New York City and the surrounding areas than all of North and South Dakota.

Does it make sense to keep N &S Dakota closed if they aren’t experiencing a rise in cases by Easter.

And he’s not the one who’s closing all of this stuff. Most of closures are being done on a state level. As it should be. Let the governors decide what’s best for their states. Again, California and New York are different than the Dakotas.

On a slightly different note...

How long exactly do you think the economy can handle having huge swaths shutdown indefinitely? 2 months? 6 months?

If you think this is all just media hysteria, read this first hand account.

Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.


CDC chart just posted seems good to me.  Is it not acceptable either?

We have great depression era  unemployment now.
how tens of  millions of people are going to pay their rent and afford food, no one knows.
For most businesses, you have expenses just for existing (rent, phone, marketing, employees, insurance, etc...)
For many small businesses, 1 to 3 months of being forced closed can be enough.

If anyone is planning on using gov't stimulus money on bowling balls, you clearly are not a small  business person, or living paycheck to paycheck. Many Americans can not afford a $400 emergency.

Unemployment and poverty lead to sickness and death is so many ways. This lockdown will surly kill more than it saves.

The CDC just released a report that now 1 in 54 children are autisic, no national emergency on what is causing that.

How long can the economy sustain this - I don't know. Your guess is as good as mine before the riots start.

Are people supposed to stay at home until they are evicted and then shelter with stupid masks and gloves in gov't run shanty towns for the economically destroyed.

Just be happy if your bowling alley doesn't go under over this.

 You are just copy and pasting the same bullshit over and over.

"bullshit"

So you just think it's just back to normal?

You don't think the struggling bowling industry will just be the same. For years reading about all the houses closing. But hey, having customers with jobs (or no jobs) doesn't matter.

You mean as opposed to people being dead?

People keep contrasting the victims of coronavirus to people suffering from heart disease or autism.  Afflictions such as that are not contagious.  People having those conditions can be out and about and not pass them on to others.

Coronavirus is highly contagious.  You can get it from simply touching a door handle, or gas pump, or shopping cart, or from particulates in the air from the person walking in front of you who just sneezed.  Then you take it home and unknowingly pass it to your family, who then unknowingly go out and pass it along to their friends who then pass it to their family and so on.

Influenza is comparable, however there is an annual vaccine for that that less than 50% of the public gets.  If more people would get a flu shot, there would be fewer deaths from the flu.

Until a vaccine is developed for this COVID-19 virus, we all have to be responsible.  True, we cannot lock ourselves away forever, but hopefully the new way of doing things (social distancing, staying home when feeling sick, ultra frequent surface cleansing and hand washing, etc.) will stay with everyone moving forward and become a regular thing and not just a fad.  Then, when the vaccine is available, people will actually go get it and not brush it off like the flu shot.

The unmitigated ignorance of some people is just astounding. To actually shout down scientific data, using non supported "facts" and hearsay is just one of the dumbest things I've ever seen people do, and yet they do it all the time.

 Anti vaxxers, flat earthers, planets X'rs, ……….

 And now, here comes the "Don't believe the Corona virus is real" crowd.

 Do they REALLY think that this is a WORLDWIDE conspiracy, cooked up and held to by political powers that can't even agree on the question of "Is water wet?", yet they can conspire together to take control of the entire world for their nefarious gains, only to exploit those who are not a "member of the club"? OMFG!  REALLY?

 Maybe, just maybe, if this virus thing is a hoax, we could get them to volunteer for those "non-existent" clinical tests we'll be needing to do. I mean, if all it is is a sugar pill placebo, what could it hurt, right?

No no no, would you like to know what this is?

Follow along with me now. This was a #showerthought and is usually how I think when alone for more than 5 minutes lol.

The planet is sick. Global warming is basically the planet having a fever. What is the human bodies reaction to an infection? Fever. Then the antibodies race in and try to fight the infection.

Our way of life is the cause of the infection. Look at how much pollution has decreased in just 2 weeks. This is the planets way of fixing itself.

Now we know who the chosen one really is. Too bad Global didn’t figure that out a few months ago.

Think about it. The planet is 4.5 billion years old. This industrial age in which we've attempted to tear the Earth apart has been 200 years at best. If we go back to how many hardcore plagues have been recorded, there's been one every 100 years for 500 years. Basically, something like this is the equivalent of a nurse coming in every 4 hours and saying "Time for your next dose of medicine!"

Tell me I'm wrong. Because I'm not.
