I'm honestly struggling to enjoy games and films at the moment because of everything going on. Just been playing the guitar really.
Similar pattern all over. Most countries got plenty of advance warning, but didn't/don't go hard in dealing with the problem until it's biting them in the face. Shutting China down worked in China, we are going to have to do that sort of thing all over, the later we leave it the worse it'll be, but there's not zombies running round or people with wheelbarrows crying "Bring out your dead" so it's business as usual with less toilet paper.TopazFusion said:Not gonna lie, I'm actually pretty annoyed. I live in (what should be) probably the safest country in the world for this kinda thing (New Zealand). And yet, inaction and pussyfooting by our incompetent government has led to the virus being let in and taking a foothold.
So now it feels like I'm stuck in a bad doomsday movie that never seems to end.
Sure did. Suddenly no one's sick anymore. It's a miracle! Back to eating raw infected bats and armadillo's with 103F fevers. Yummmmm. Don't forget the face mask though that wet piece of saliva stained cloth surely keeps the virus out.Thaluikhain said:Shutting China down worked in China
The air is also cleaner than ever. Normally my stress level skyrockets from all the people and traffic but now nothing but tranquility and deserted streets. Death does not come with fanfare and bombast, it comes gentle like the night on a beautiful spring afternoon. xDEvilRoy said:it is the most perplexing feeling I've ever experienced to be driving down a completely empty street thinking to myself "ah jesus christ I left too late and now I'm gonna get there like a minute before go time", and rushing past streets sparsely populated by people with nothing to do.
ha ha the Joe rogan podcast had on today a navy seal that said eating mres gives you the worst stomach!IceForce said:I bet those doomsday preppers are feeling pretty smug right about now. With their underground bunkers and their unperishables, and their stockpiles of loo roll.
I wonder if QLD will get the same treatment. Also wondering about schools, because if they close, my work will close. But otherwise we'll stay open.Hawki said:So today was my last day of work for at least three weeks. In the next 48 hours, all of NSW is going to be placed under lockdown, which means that all non-essential services are to remain shut until further notice.
You on mass sanitizing duty? My fingers are screaming for mercy at the end of every shift for me, even with gloves.twistedmic said:I work in a grocery store so my plans consist of going to work, bitching about stupid/rude customers and hoping I don't catch the virus .
Similar, just substitute "The display cases have some smudges on them, I better wipe them before someone sees!" for the taxes.It feels like the apocalypse happened, but for some reason taxes are still due and I'm the last accountant trying to get it all filed for the remaining populace.
Frankly, I'd rather swap places with you and sanitize stores until my hands bled, rather than work on my grad school stuff.Smithnikov said:
