  1. I was worried it would get out of hand, but I didn't realize how much it would affect the world.
  2. My uncle passed away yesterday. He was put on a ventilator but had to be taken off. You don't need to visit a fucking barbershop or nail salon. Let it wait. Don't kill people with seemingly casual visits jesus christ.
  3. I just learned that my uncle is in critical condition in an ICU and the doctors say he has it. Crazy thing was literally 3 days ago we had a video chat; I told him to stay safe and he said he felt fine. Scary how fast someone can deteriorate. All I can do is hope.
  4. Never seen The Untouchables till now. Decent flick, more of a soap opera type gangster film. Still holding to my opinion that Kevin Costner can't act worth a damn.
  5. You telling me you somehow don't enjoy CBM fanbase-like discussions leaking into every thread on film?
  6. The hype must flow That pic of Ferguson looks like something out of a painting. Also didn't recognize Momoa at first.
  7. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/02/weekly-jobless-claims.html 6.6 million jobless claims this week. Holy fuck. So 10 million jobs gone in the last two weeks. This is absolutely insane and it's going to get worse. EDIT: I guess that kind of includes me, my company has just furloughed me since the movie projects I was working on at this point have been suspended and we're sitting around twiddling our thumbs. I'll be fine, but I worry greatly about my coworkers, especially the ones paid less who work like two or three jobs.
  8. End of the day it's everyone's fault as you said. China has a major share of the blame for covering it up, but the west watched the horror show in Wuhan and assumed things would continue to be normal. This is going to be a tough year.
  9. https://t.co/FzjfCapfdr?amp=1 Apparently Taiwan alerted the WHO back in December about the risk of human-to-human transmission of the new coronavirus but its concerns were not passed on to other countries. Figures. WHO has been pretty useless in this whole saga.
  10. Huh? The US has a much higher rate of obesity among its population compared with Italy for instance. We're just earlier in our spread, and northern Italy is much more concentrated in population density than the entirety US. Wait a few months then we can compare death rates. I have a bad feeling though our insurance system also complicates and makes people in the US more unhealthy considering stuff like opoids crisis.
  11. Terrifying study by the Imperial College If we let the virus take its course 80% of Americans would get infected and death toll would be nearly 4 million since the US would need 30 times the ventilators it has now. They also ran the study if assuming a "suppression" strategy: isolate symptomatic cases, quarantine their family members, social distancing for the whole population, all public gatherings/most workplaces shut down, schools and universities close and deathrate 3 weeks from now peaks at a few thousand deaths and ventilators don't get overrun. Hence the need to quarantine and lockdown.
  12. https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/local/wisconsin/2020/03/16/coronavirus-wisconsin-latest-updates-cases-cancellations/5057161002/ "Wisconsin's Sen. Ron Johnson worried coronavirus relief bill would incentivize people to 'not show up to work'" ISN'T THAT THE FUCKING POINT. We want people to stay home to avoid spreading it.
  13. Yup https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/16/politics/top-health-officials-stockpiled-equipment/index.html Health officials warn US government does not have enough stockpiled medical equipment to deal with coronavirus
  14. We're about to be hit by a huge financial crisis as well don't worry on top of this pandemic. Everyone saw the fed cut the rates, but they also cut reserve requirement ratios for thousands of banks to zero so they can print money their way out of the current crisis. https://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/pressreleases/monetary20200315b.htm These capital requirements exist to protect in case of bank runs. Simple comparison: what happens if people want to withdraw their money and the bank has none?
